Confidence: How To Succeed at Being Yourself by Dr. Alan Loy McGinnis



According to this book of Dr. Alan Loy McGinnis, some people are magnets for success. They know how to "catch on the wing." Their only secret is confidence; certainty about their personal worth.

"Can you gain more self-confidence? Can you change? "Yes," says Dr. McGinnis. "You can gain a healthy self-confidence."

I am very much aware that I have a very low self-esteem. Oh! Erase that... One of the things Dr. McGinnis mentioned in this book is to never look down yourself and never ever think that you have such problem in yourself. 

Dr. McGinnis also illustrated in this book to let go of the unwanted memories of the past and to forget and forgive. Some of us have issues with our parents right? Dr. McGinnis also said to forgive our parents and just look at the bright side. We may have commit something wrong or argue with our parents, they will just hope for our own sake, ALWAYS! We should love our parents a thousand times than they love us. Yes, they get annoying sometimes, but always remember that we are much more annoying than them but they never gave up on us. It is a big factor in gaining self-confidence.
Upon reading this book, I feel like I've met a lot of people. Amazing people! People who got out of their shell and they succeeded in the careers they chose to have. Mostly, they are Dr. McGinnis' patients who were so down and aren't confident about themselves yet they managed to look at the bright side and transform themselves into who they are today. Successful in their chosen fields!



In every chapter of the book, there are always some remarkable quotes and bible verses to keep the readers inspired. 

Not only being confident and successful Dr. McGinnis wants his readers to become. He also aim to let his readers know the existence, ever lasting love and guidance of God.

Seems a good book to read lang..Yehey. But in honesty, di ako bilib sa mga ganyang stuff. Kasi I have my own book that teaches me the perfect way to be confident.. alam mo na yun bunso.

The book is a good read. It is good to know that you have learned a lot from it especially the" not look down on our self" part. Among all persons in this world, you should be a believer of yourself so that others will believe in you too :)
