Welcome to the first edition of this Newsletter!

I am excited to let you know that I will be launching my new website, and officially opening a Baha’i­-Inspired Life Coaching business sometime within the next couple of weeks.  To give you a preview of what’s coming, I will be sending you a series of emails over the next couple of weeks, as I lead-up to the official opening.  Each newsletter will feature an excerpt from one of the e-books I will be selling, or give you some more information on Life Coaching.  I hope you find the articles informative, and I’m happy you’ll be sharing in the excitement day-by-day as it unfolds!

7 Steps to Using a Confidence Role Model

Just how confident are you?

A low self-esteem and a lack of self-confidence can have a negative effect on every area of your life. It stands in the way of who you are right now, and the person you are meant to be. It limits your ability to live out who you truly are.

If you don’t make a conscious decision to work on improving your confidence levels, your low self-confidence can destroy your life. Your limited self-confidence will have a negative impact on your ability to advance in your career, build meaningful relationships and live a successful and happy life in general.

When your self-esteem hits rock bottom, what should you do?

Think of someone whose confidence levels you admire; a colleague, friend, someone in your family or even a famous personality who oozes self-confidence; someone who has high self-esteem and someone you admire – perhaps even ‘Abdu’l-Baha. Adopt them as your CONFIDENCE ROLE MODEL.

Ask yourself:

How would my confidence role model deal with this situation?

1. He/she would act like . . .

2. He/she would talk like . . .

3. He/she would walk like . . .

4. He/she would think like . . .

5. Their body language would be like . . .

6. Other people think that this person is

. . .

7. When faced with problems, this person thinks . . .

When you have your answer, put these qualities into action.


Don’t worry if this feels awkward, because it will! After all you are acting out what you are really not. It will take a while for it to sink within and feel normal.

Questions and Answers

What does the Baha’i Faith teach about fate and predestination?

“Some things are subject to the free will of man, such as justice, equity, tyranny and injustice, in other words, good and evil actions; it is evident and clear that these actions are, for the most part, left to the will of man. But there are certain things to which man is forced and compelled, such as sleep, death, sickness, decline of power, injuries and misfortunes; these are not subject to the will of man, and he is not responsible for them, for he is compelled to endure them. But in the choice of good and bad actions he is free, and he commits them according to his own will.” (‘Abdul-Bahæ#402;¡, Some Answered Questions, p. 248.)
