Book Review: THINK Yourself CONFIDENT: 15 KEYS TO INCREASE CONFIDENCE, IGNITE PERFORMANCE & UNLOCK YOUR FULL POTENTIAL
Canadian author Nathalie Plamondon-Thomas, the Founder and CEO of THINK Yourself ACADEMY and a fitness trainer, has published seventeen books abut fitness, relationships, empowerment, success, and other approaches to living a life of fullness and satisfaction. Her manner of writing is conversational, creating the sense that reading her advice is a one-on-one encouraging path to rejuvenation. Even the titles of the chapters inform and encourage – ‘Confidence starts with the stories you tell yourself’ as she says ‘It all starts with your mindset. The beautiful thing is, it’s the one thing that is completely under your control. In this book, I’m going to teach you how.’ Employing this accessible manner of coaching, Nathalie offers case studies about burnout at work (and at home!), and other forms of stress, especially the pandemic confrontation, which she presents with colorful images and funny phrases that encourage following her wise advice. Her D.N.A. system – Desire, New you, Actualize – is easy to understand and incorporate as are all the many facets of building self confidence and grow into our full potential. A most impressive support system that is easy to incorporate. Very highly recommended.
