“I am so glad that I read this book from success coach and inspirational speaker, Maddy Malhotra. I love self-help books, but not all of them are easy to understand. This book is! Maddy really helped me to understand just how important self-esteem and a healthy confidence level are for our happiness and success in life. I have read about these subjects before, but this author really drove it home for me. I feel inspired to do more work on myself. Thank you, Maddy, for writing this book!”Elizabeth Stevens wrote this review Friday, October 25, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This book by Maddy Malhotra is the key to improving the psychological quality of your life, focusing on issues concerning self-esteem, emotional intelligence, overcoming fears, breaking bad habits and generally being more positive about life and what it has to offer.
It is packed with thoughtful, empathetic insights, application of relevant psychological theories and models, staying in control of your emotions, personal anecdotes and lots and lots of useful tips!
The book is ideal for keeping by your bedside table or in your handbag to read and re-read whenever you feel the urge to.
With practical exercises and adequate space for you to jot down your notes, you can go through the book at a pace that suits you.
After all, as women we're worth it - take it from a compassionate guy, that is Maddy Malhotra. :) ”
“This is very well-written book that is easy to read. The includes blank pages for the reader to write down notes and reflection sections that include questions to answer. I enjoy the quotes that are written before the beginning of the chapters. This is one of those books that you may read over and over throughout the course of your life for those little pick me ups. Great book.
I highly recommend this book to those that need a little bit more inspiration.
“This is a very well written book in an easily digestible format. For those who wish to succeed in life, one cannot miss this. As I look forward to 2014, I'm grateful to encounter this book now to remind me of the importance of setting specific goals and to expand my sense of possibility for what they can be. I now know that achieving 'peak performance' requires a 'strong self-belief'.
It's a great reminder that the only thing holding you back is yourself and reading Maddy's own story makes you want to do something about that. I recommend this book to those who wish to be more positive, be in control of their emotions and achieve more success. Once I picked up this book I couldn't put it down!”
“How to Build Self-Esteem and Be Confident - Overcome Fears, Break Habits, Be Successful and Happy by Maddy Malhotra is a practical approach to the typical self-help book. When you’re experiencing low self-esteem, most things seem out of reach, unachievable, and nearly impossible. This book offers golden nuggets of wisdom and encouragement in an easy-to-understand fashion.
To conquer low self-esteem, you must understand, accept, acknowledge, and find an alternative perspective of happiness. I am a typical worry-wart -- I stress about most everything, I worry, I pile on work when it is not needed. I had no self-esteem and didn’t have a positive attitude about anything.I have kept a journal while reading this book and have noticed a significant change -- even in the smallest ways. While most other readings are pure encouragement -- all talk and no action -- this book offers real life scenarios and diagrams that are very relatable.
Once you have identified the problem, you can begin to heal.
This book is inspirational and will lift your spirits to new heights.
“This book was recommended by a friend and buying it was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
Everyone has a point in their life wherein they experience low self-esteem or lack of confidence. This book will absolutely help you to change that pessimistic notion into a life-changing one.
Most of us don’t realize that overcoming fears or break unhealthy habits is doable but this book explains it in a very engaging and easy-to-understand way.
What I like most are the exercises at the end of each chapter which is an added perk that you get in this book unlike many self help books out there. These exercises can help you to analyze and face your fears head-on. Every chapter discusses different perspective on how to improve your self-image and be the best you can be. The author doesn’t just relate everything through words but with illustrations and real life examples, which everyone can relate to.
One of my favourite quotes is “Like food is to the body, self-talk is to the mind. Don’t let any junk thoughts repeat in your head” – Maddy Malhotra
This book is a must-have for every household. Whether its your professional or personal life, this book can help you to understand the root cause of the problems and help you to be more positive, believe in yourself and live a fulfilled life.
Thank you Maddy for this masterpiece!
“There is something so staggeringly beguiling about Maddy Malhotra’s book, ‘How to Build Self-esteem and be Confident’. Maybe it’s the easy-on-the-eyes way the author writes, or the fact that he’s actually drawing from his own life experiences. But one thing is certain: this book is going to change your life for the better.
I’m a huge reader of self-help books. You name it, I’ve probably read it. But only few books qualify to be considered as astonishingly world-changing as, say, ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People.’ And I believe Malhotra’s book is right up there among the truly powerful self-help books. The topics of building self-esteem and confidence is nothing new—you’ve probably gone jaded with all the other books you’ve seen in bookstores, but Malhotra’s book stands out because it jumps right at you with its honesty, credibility, and sheer power—you immediately realise here is a no-nonsense ‘practical guide’ on achieving some of the most important but often overlooked aspects of life.
At the heart of the book’s discussion is a simple truth: we have learned a lot of things except to be truly happy and successful, or to be successfully happy. We grow up amid false or self-defeating influences, which lead us to believe that having a lot of money or being sexy or slim is equal to true happiness. Malhotra not only sets it correctly, but also provides some pretty enlightening discussions about how to really achieve genuine success and how to become master of your own self. He offers proven and tested methods to get rid of bad habits, fears, and everything that stands on your path toward genuine self-fulfilment. In one word: “comprehensive.”
Overall, Malhotra’s ‘How to Build Self-esteem and Be Confident’ is an astonishingly powerful all-in-one book about achieving success, inner peace, confidence, and basically transform yourself from the inside out. If you need some proof, go ahead and read the few sample chapters—I’m pretty sure you’ll also “see” what I’ve seen. I can’t recommend this book too highly. Order now, or send it as a gift to a loved one who deserves to be, finally, happy.
“Dealing with self esteem (limiting self beliefs) issues is certainly a key to a better, richer, self-loving and peaceful life experience.
This book has totally captured the `key elements' required to live a fulfilled and happy life. Reading this book will give you a quantum leap towards achieving your happiness. It will show you how to eliminate `stinking thinking' and the nasty inner-critic that inevitably tries to flatten your self-esteem and confidence.
Even a confident person will learn and benefit from this book. Firstly, the book defines Self-beliefs (self esteem) and its effect on each area of our lives, then helps us banish the ones which prevent the development of self-worth and finally, enables us to view ourselves in a more positive way. If you are determined to develop a positive attitude and to take control of your thoughts/emotions, then this book will show you how to achieve it. Every chapter is full of life changing insight and transforming exercises.
Maddy's book is a book to carry with you in your bag every day. Even a flick through it may act as your daily dose of 'food for thought' and set you up for a good day.
It is a book that one will refer to again and again. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about themselves or who wishes to develop their self esteem and happy relationships. It helped me to understand myself. Believe me, this is the next best thing to a real life coach!
It's easy to understand and the techniques are doable in everyday life unlike so many other books which can overwhelm or are full of jargons!
I highly recommend this book to any ambitious individual who takes his/her personal growth seriously. If you don't believe in yourself then who else will? You are responsible to create happiness in your life.
This book could change your life. It's inspirational, to the point and practical.
Wish you success. ”
“Maddy Malhotra's book ranks in my list of best books next to those by Stephen Covey, Brian Tracy, Jack Canfield and Napoleon Hill. This easy to understand and practical book can help you achieve success and happiness in every area of your life.
Why am I so confident about it? Because Maddy knows why a lot of us have a low self-esteem or confidence, why our relationships lack happiness and what stops us from achieving our financial and personal goals. He walks his talk. He isn't just another life coach!
Stories with a moral, motivational quotes and illustrations make this book more interesting.
You have two options - not read it for whatever excuse and live your life at the same level of excuses and keep on complaining on how tough life is for you OR read it, implement it and live the life you dream of. The choice is yours. I already read it and recommend you to do the same.
