This set of 60 prompt cards from The School Of Life has been designed to help us to find confidence and battle against timidity through new ideas and questions.
Offering a variety of consoling and invigorating arguments, these cards force us to consider the greater and smaller challenges of our daily lives. They remind us, for the sake of confidence, not to think too well of others; to learn to watch our tendencies to self-sabotage; to imagine strangers sitting in the bathroom; to speak to ourselves in kinder tones, and to remember that the greatest thing we should fear isn’t messing up, but dying without having given it a go.
Confidence is a quality we can learn about and develop in ourselves and these cards are here to help you do just that.
‘Everyone is afraid – even those who frighten us.’
‘Confidence is what translates theory into practice. It should never be thought of as the enemy of good things; it is their crucial and legitimate catalyst. We need to develop confidence in confidence.’
‘We have not seen enough of the rough drafts of those we admire. Confidence means forgiving ourselves for the horrors of our first attempts.’
