Sound familiar: that you feel vulnerable? That you believe you're inadequate? And are afraid of failing? Nobody enjoys failing, but it just makes you stronger.

Online: The art of failing

How to build self-confidence

Failing is something bad, at least that's what a lot of people think. You're brought up with the idea that certainty is necessary before you start something. Maybe that you 'lose face' big time with the people around you if you fail at something. That self-confidence is the basis for succeeding in life, and for achieving your goals. And that experience is a requirement for being able to face a challenge. Incorrect assumptions, as you'll experience in this learning journey.

How do you view failure? The thought of coping with failure in a lighthearted manner might be strange or even unthinkable in your situation or environment. Even just talking about it. You might consider failing or doing something wrong as a sign of weakness, and that's something you definitely don't want to show. But this doesn't change the fact that you probably want to do something about those unpleasant feelings. This learning journey can help you.
