4 Ways Our Ego Prevents Us from Accessing Our Confidence

confidence leadership purpose Apr 25, 2023

Growing up, I was shy and had low confidence. I was ok at science and good at sports, but spelling and maths weren’t my thing. Having been accepted to join a college where I would study science in the morning and sports in the afternoon, I had to wait a year for a space. At 15, I left my family in France to live with my beloved grandparents in England to wait that year out, improving my English by doing my first year of GCSEs.

It turned out to be the best thing I ever did. I ended up staying for two years to complete my GCSEs. I went from an average grade of a D in English Literature to an A grade in my final GCSE exams. This huge improvement was reflected in all my grades.

This article aims to help you understand what stopped me from accessing my confidence so you can learn about how your Ego could be getting in your way. Read on as I reflect on this experience today as a leadership coach.
