Confidence is knowing mistakes are part of the learning process

Want to know how to boost your child’s confidence? Show them that failure and making mistakes are just a part of the learning process, and you will build their self esteem.

 

Do you have low self esteem based on fear of failure?

 

In my programs for building confidence in children through music, I talk a lot about building confidence through being the model not the mirror. The aim is not to reflect back but to stand in our values and model the example to our children. See this as a challenge in your life and your parenting, you can and you will rise to it!

 

  

When Freddie Mercury sang ‘We Are The Champions’ he was saying in front of the whole world what he wanted. And nothing anyone ever created or achieved was gained without failure, perseverance, self-belief and by getting up each time you fall, and going again. 


Will you make mistakes? Yes. Will you fail big time? Yes.

Do you catastrophise? Choose confidence instead!

You don’t learn to swim by thinking about drowning. You won’t build confidence by thinking about fear.

Want to know how to boost your child’s self confidence?


Focusing yours and your child’s mind on the power you hold in any given scenario is the best way to empower yourselves, and give your child a confidence boost that lasts. Are you ready to change the way you see things forever and raise a wholehearted, confident child or confident children who can live and love to their fullest expression?

 

 

 

Do you catastrophise? Do you find yourself thinking ‘what if..’ and then listing all the potential negative outcomes in your head? This just sets your mind in a loop of fear-based thinking, lacking confidence, and low self esteem.

As an adult and a parent you have a responsibility to shape your child’s mind, and to build their self-esteem, and give them the tools to continue to build their own self worth.

Our lives are based on...

Installing the belief that you are worthy

Our belief systems (which drive our thoughts, which trigger emotions, that drive behaviour) are pretty much fully formed by the time of age seven. 

What if we flip the transformation and healing model around and start from birth?

 

What if we were being hugely intentional in order to create a lens that will create a positive self-image, and make sure that positive self-worth, positive self-belief is already installed?

That's why I work with parents of under-sevens, because this is where we have the most impact.

It's All Inside!

 

Of all the things you want for your children, happiness and confidence are always at the top of the list you tell me you wish for.

Enjoy this video from the archive! [12min watch, perfect with a cuppa].


As parents and early educators we have an amazing opportunity to guide the beliefs that children hold about themselves, that are formed on a 95% unconscious basis before the age of seven.

Parenting isn’t about mastering your child, it’s about mastering your mind. You don’t have a behaviour problem, you have a thinking problem…because we cannot control anybody else but ourselves. We’re in a relationSHIP, and the way that you change your ship is to change yourself.


Personal freedom involves doing things differently, thinking differently, feeling differently. Personal freedom takes courage. And it starts with changing your thinking. Everything starts with the inner work. Personal freedom starts by taking the journey within.

Were you brought up to be 'a good girl'?

 

Were you brought up to be 'a good girl', to inhibit your feelings, repress your self expression and constantly minimise yourself in order to get people to like you or not feel threatened by your confidence? This sets such a destructive precedent for our children. In order to break the chain of this conditioning it's vital that we're the model, not the mirror. We can show our children how to live to their fullest expression, and shine.

When Children Assert Themselves

 

When you apply pressure to one side there's always an opposing force. When this is in the form of trying to control your child's every move, there's going to be a push-back. Children have their own thoughts and feelings and are trying to assert themselves, which is a healthy part of growing up.

Before Your Child Turns 7 You Can Affect Their Perception And How They Show Up In The World

Before your child turns 7 you have this glorious opportunity to shape how they see the world around them, and this in turn affects whether they see the world as scary or friendly, and whether they feel anxious or confident in life. This is ultimately going to affect how they show up in the world.
