Low self-esteem is not “your personality”. You can change it.
I can help.
I know it can seem impossible. Because I know what it feels like to push through the day in spite of the worry, insecurity, self-doubt. I know how painful it can be.
Maybe it’s a feeling of always needing to check with someone else just to make sure you did it right instead of trusting your own instinct.
Or, it’s saying yes to take on that additional favor for a colleague when what you really want to do is say no, but you don’t because you are afraid of what that could do to your relationship.
Perhaps it’s a longing for the day when you wake up and can just feel good about yourself, only to find that day never seems to come. Or if it does come, it’s fleeting. Because it was based on some accomplishment you did, and as soon as that moment has passed, the old feeling of inadequacy creeps back in.
I have been in the exact same place.
I’m Lisa. I’m 29, and I know what it’s like to be a young high-achiever in the workplace. I know the desire to be true to yourself while also drive your career forward – and how those two can seem in conflict. I know the…
second-guessing that comes from wondering if you are doing it right.
anxiety of wondering if everyone else can see how unsure and anxious you feel inside.
self judgment of that harsh inner voice that won’t stop nagging.
urge to constantly people please in an attempt to try and be accepted.
longing for the confidence that others seem to wear so effortlessly, but that never feels quite right on you.
dream of wanting to wake up, and just feel good, at peace with yourself.
Sure, I took all the actions I thought a confident person would do.
I graduated college summa cum laude with a B.A. in Psychology, and immediately went on to complete an M.S. in Industrial Organizational Psychology.
I combined my education with corporate consulting experience. I was successful in advancing my career within and across different organizations. On the outside, it looked like I had all the right pieces in place for a successful career.
But I didn’t feel that way. And while many saw me as confident, I felt doubtful, unsure, and hesitant. Even when I had wins, it didn’t quiet the constant self-judgment that would run through my mind like a broken record, constantly critiquing me and second-guessing my decisions.
And, it began to hold me back from moving forward in my career.
Because it stopped me from asking for what I wanted. It kept me hesitant from voicing my opinions. It made it so I wasn’t showing up as the strong assertive voice my boss wanted, that I wanted, but couldn’t figure out how.
That was me then. But it is not me anymore.
You can feel self-confident.
You can take action.
There is nothing wrong with you.
Let me show you how.
I have developed a confidence coaching program that combines my own process to creating self-confidence with my professional background in coaching and psychology:
