You become what you think you are

In my workshops and individual coaching sessions, I ask delegates in a particular exercise to write down a few statements of how they would describe themselves. I receive responses like: “I am not confident”; “I am not a speaker”; and “I am a shy person, it takes time for me to get to know you.”
