Overcoming a lack of confidence – You define who you are

Overcoming a lack of confidence. Is that even possible? I want to tell you that not only is it possible but it’s also a vital part of your journey towards living the life you want to live. Most of us, at some point or other, have experienced a lack in confidence. We look down on ourselves, agreeing with those negative thoughts that race through our minds faster than a Formula 1 car.
