Successful people are usually well acquainted with failure. This is simply because successful people are triers, experimenters, optimists and they don't give up easily. They're not afraid of being first, of falling flat on their faces, making people laugh or crow.

Not Just A Front - Confident And Proud

Confidence is intimidating. Considering the way society pits us against one another, it isn't the norm to feel comfortable and happy within oneself. But guess what? My confidence isn't a facade to hide insecurities.

I've sectioned a typical day as an example, showing your 'normal' working schedule (we will call this day 'relief') and how it compares to the 'children' working schedule when it is the holiday period (I've called this day 'demand').

When you look at yourself, what do you see? For many years I tried to avoid the man in the mirror, because he was my chief critic, judge, jury and executioner...

Why You're More Than An Exam Grade

Exam results do not show the depth of your love and kindness, nor the resilience of your spirit. They don't show what a joy it is to be in your company, nor how responsible you are and how steady you can be in a crisis.

Why Our Kids Shouldn't Be Defined By Their Results

Luckily, as a nearly-40-year-old I know what to do to get over the feelings of not being good enough. I've spent the last few months coaching teenage girls to get over the same. They've started their exams this week and in every coaching session I've told them that their grades don't define them.

Once you've evaluated your reflection and decided what you want to accentuate and what you want to divert from, consider what style you like. You don't need to choose a current prevailing fashion from a magazine; just decide what you like and what you feel comfortable with. 

Your Face Looks Like My Dalmatian...

It was a wonderful experience and I loved every minute. My very fair Scottish skin did not take too kindly at all to the glorious sun... My face developed what I felt at the time were the ugliest freckles. They were huge and sporadic. They had no regular path or shape. If they had I may not have been so conscious of them.

One Easy Tip To Break That Low Self-Esteem Cycle

Robert Kelly | Posted 06.04.2017 | UK Lifestyle

Although our self-esteem is a product of the recent experiences in life and the way we've processed them - negative experiences and a subsequent negative thought process will inevitably lead to low self-esteem - it is entirely possible to reprogram yourself into processing these experiences differently.

Unravelling My Thoughts

Admitting that I needed help to organise that box of emotions I'd pushed to the back of my mind for so long was a huge milestone for me. Going from an abusive relationship, to escaping and feeling strong and empowered, to finally coming to terms with the fact that I can't deal with it on my own, is one hell of a realisation.

As mothers it is our instinct to nurture our babies and those around us. But one thing we are guilty of, and I know it is not just me, we forget to nurture ourselves. It may feel like it is not that important to skip these little times for yourself because you have so many things to do.

He Was Alive: How Our Quiet Child Glowed With Confidence!

Emma Williamson | Posted 03.04.2017 | UK Parents

Our little man, the second youngest of a family of six, is the quietest one out of them all. He is the kid who very rarely gets told off, but when he does, you feel traumatised for doing so. His whole face breaks but he makes no sound and you are left feeling guilty for something he has done!

Confidence Is A Skill Not A Personality Trait: Four Lessons To Develop Real Confidence

I've lost count of the number of times I've talked myself out of things because I didn't think I was confident enough. Holding back from saying what I wanted to say because more confident people were speaking up.

Time Is The Greatest Gift We Can Give Ourselves

Trish McEvoy | Posted 14.03.2017 | UK Lifestyle

If there is one thing I've learned in all my years as a makeup artist and entrepreneur, it's that many women forget they deserve time. They'll do whatever it takes to build careers, bring up families and be good friends, but their own needs take a backseat. "I don't need time," they'll say. "I'm fine."

The Power Of Red Flags In Relationships

It's easy in relationships to see what we want to see or what is convenient for us, often ignoring clear warning signs or red flags that this person is not good for us and does not have the best intentions at heart.

all women everywhere So try telling yourself you can. Put yourself out there. If it doesn't work, whatever it is, at least you tried. When you're feeling happy in yourself, you have spare happiness to pass on. You really do get what you give.

Fake it until you make it - you might feel like you're going to throw up but think like an actress who is playing a part and go for it. Faking confidence actually makes you feel more confident and the more you do something, the less scary it seems. It also has the added benefit of meaning you'll get the job done!

Why Must We Be Teenagers In Love?

Jaelithe Leigh-Brown

He wasn't a bad person in any way, he was just a normal teenage boy. He ended up cheating on me and the way he spoke to me and treated me was disrespectful. I remember hating who I was, crying all of the time and wishing I was thinner, prettier and better than I was. I felt unworthy of love and blamed myself for his cheating.

A Fit Mind

Pick up a women's or men's magazine and the dominant features will be appearance, nutrition, fitness, work, sex and romance. We want to be strong, fit, healthy and attractive and enjoy our work and love life. We want them and expect them to go right, but we can be in for disappointments when they don't go according to plan. We need a Plan B: a fit mind to back us up.

You have the power to manage your emotions and to put them in to perspective, to put them where they belong. You can choose to accept how you feel, but not let those feelings take control and take you down the wrong path because you are being emotionally driven.

I spend quite a bit of time in online minimalist communities and reading blogs on the topic. As a result, I have seen many people adopt and then give up on this lifestyle. Over time, I have identified a few main reasons why this tends to happen.

Are Our Face To Face Social Skills Being Crippled By Social Media?

Could the skill of 'real' face to face socialising be fading out? I certainly hope not although it is noted in many research documents that people find it difficult and some do not have the skills to confidently socialise face to face.

I am in a rather unique position of having grown up on television in a time when people really didn't go on television. A time when people didn't really have Sky TV and access to thousands of channels, with unlimited choice, in the way we do now.

Building self-esteem doesn't always come naturally - which is OK. But I believe that just like learning a new language - it can be taught. This does not happen overnight - we just have to start and take it one day at a time.

Raising your profile can be a scary process. As you gain visibility, you attract attention. People will talk about you. Some will praise you and be inspired by you. Others will judge and dismiss you. Sometimes, these judgements will make you want to run away and hide
