[Part 2/3] Taking Control Over Your Confidence
When Does Your Confidence Take Control?
Have you ever phoned a restaurant to order a delivery?
But, have you ordered a delivery BY PHONE in English?
For about 2 years after moving to Mexico
I had an irrational FEAR of phone calls.
Honestly (and embarrassingly)
The anxiety I felt when thinking about making a phone call was so bad.
Instead of ordering delivery from my favorite pizza restaurant…
> I ordered pizza from Dominos because I could order online.
Although this is a funny and not-very-serious example.
The truth is that I wanted the pizza from my favorite restaurant.
A woodfire, thin crust pizza with gourmet ingredients
BUT because of my fear of phone calls (yep low-confidence)
I chose to order a pizza that I didn’t really want because it was easier.
Fear and anxiety speaking in English is real.
Today, I’ll be sharing a more serious situation that I faced.
One that had a very expensive consequence IF I didn’t face my fear.

For years, I was terrified to speak English. After only a few lessons, I started to feel more confident and felt free to speak my thoughts. Now, I can finally speak without fear and I feel like myself in English!
