Confidence sapping friends & colleagues
The people whom you have the most
contact with and hang around will have either a positive or negative
affect on your levels of self-esteem and confidence.
We all know those people who are positive,
happy and joyful to be around.
How do they make you feel?

for this. If they are negative from time to time just acknowledge
that this is what they are like and block out the negativity.
3. The same can be said with family. Your more mature family
members have behaviours that have been conditioned for years
and years and from different eras. Appreciate where they have
come from and as in number 2 above, elicit and select the information
that filters through to your brain.
4. Remember, that nothing has meaning in life except the meaning
that you give it.
