About This Class

Do you struggle with achieving your goals and dreams?  Do you feel afraid to make changes or doubt yourself? Would you like to get clarity about yourself, your future and your next step? 

Welcome to Steps to overcome your fears and take charge, the straightforward course for learning how you can increase your confidence, deal with any fears and take charge of your life.

Being afraid and unclear about your future, or feeling uncertain and doubting yourself is very common for many people. These worries can prevent you from taking important decisions and actions that could impact your life to a great extent.  

The good news is that you can learn to overcome fears and figure out the direction that is best for you in your life. 

 This course I will show you how with practical tips you can begin using immediately, even before you finish all the lessons. 

Some of the strategies I discuss and help you discover through hands-on activities include: 

  • Power questions that can change your life
  • Self-awareness through self-reflection
  • Cognitive restructuring
  • Disrupting negative self-talk: the short cut
  • Self-confidence self-test with scores
  • The use of questioning and counter statement to fear thoughts

 I've been teaching students from all over the world, having many different backgrounds, ages, and level of education. That’s how I created a down to earth approach for my courses, which are easy to understand and follow to ensure you get the most important, relevant, and useful information that can be applied immediately

The activities are explained in a simple and clear manner, and in a short amount of time. It’s then up to the students to choose individually the extent of time and effort they put into the exercises.

The lectures and resources will continue to be updated and I enjoy responding or give advice to all your inquiries provided in the discussion forum.

Go ahead, check out the curriculum and if you like what you see, simply enroll right away. After all, it’s your life and your decision to get started and enjoy YOU!
