Confidence Awareness

In reality, we are all confident…at times and in certain situations. What we typically call confidence is awareness of the confidence we possess.

Many whom we consider confident are aware of their confidence, at least on a subconscious level. Those we describe as “lacking confidence” are unaware of the confidence they possess. My programs are designed to help you and your kids use your confidence more effectively.

Help kids 8 to 80+ be:

Confident – attractive quality & foundation for success.

Successful – in whatever they choose to do.

Joyful – free of fear, anxiety & frustration.

People who desire to teach others to be more confident are:

Spiritual – their mission in life is to enrich the lives of others through education.

Self-aware – candid about where they are in their personal development; committed to growing their awareness.

Other-centric – recognize that joyful living (success) is measured by the number of people whose lives they enrich.

Results-oriented – want to enrich others’ lives quickly and effectively…often in the moment.

Confidence and Character

Both parents and educators want kids to be successful, enjoy life and become productive members of society. With greater confidence children become more trustworthy, respectful, responsible, fair and caring. All necessary for rich, full, productive lives.


One of the little-known facts about confidence is that there are three levels of confidence. Each involves a different way of training your mind.

Below are excerpts from each of the three levels of confidence:


Nicole Caldwell

Your program has done so much for me that I am finding connections to unfamiliar things and challenging ideas daily; it has become such a norm that I forget it’s counterintuitive thinking…

…It has helped me connect the dots between everything I’ve learned in my life, and I feel like I’m extracting more from things than I ever have before.

Note: In the second level of confidence, you retrain your mind to think counter-intuitively, contrary to what our human nature suggests, hence the references to counterintuitive thinking.

Imagine the confidence you and your kids will enjoy as you see things your peers don’t see.
