Woman Uses Imagery to Boost Sagging Confidence from Stressful Boss

29 Sep

We got this note attesting to how imagery can help buttress self-confidence and produce calm in the face of a critical barrage from a difficult work situation with a  a stressful, demanding boss:

Hi Belleruth,

I want to tell you how much I enjoy the Self Confidence imagery.  I work for a very stressful boss, so I really needed the self-confidence boost.  He is highly critical and demanding. We never know when he will come down on us.  Everyone in the office is on edge.  Positive self-talk only gets me so far.  It helps to have something affirming to listen to that comes from outside of myself.  I listen to the imagery a lot.  It helps.  It is also calming and I see it affecting other areas of my life in a positive way. I just wanted to thank you.  I would love to come to one of your programs sometime.  I keep watching for something close to home.  
 
Take care and thank you again for your program.  
God bless,
Mary
