WE ARE BACK WITH BUILDING SELF-CONFIDENCE AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT!

Building confidence is a daily process. Building your personal development is an intentional decision. Confidence is showing up and being the best version of yourself. In a society where fear tries to take over, we succumb to staying comfortable, but how many of us know that greatness is never birthed in our comfort zones? Despite what Covid-19 has put us through, you must be willing and determined to work intently on your self-confidence and personal development because there is so much in you!

Authentic Worth Publishing is not only about writing and publishing books, but sharing different stories of people from all walks of life to transparently share their story in ways that inspire others to do the same. We want to take you on a journey of building your own self-confidence and personal development in 2021 and beyond. This is a seminar not to be missed! It’s going to be fun, exciting, full of prize giveaways, networking and a lot of questions to be answered on the day!

In the meantime, why not check our recent testimonials from our previous building self-confidence and personal development seminar via the website:

I just want to express how good the Building Self-Confidence and Personal Development seminar was on Saturday 14th March 2020. It was completely mind blowing! The way Esther delivered the session was sensational. Her knowledge and expertise in this area was exceptional. Not only did I get a better understanding, but the value received was beyond measure. I have clear take-a-ways and actions that I can implement immediately. I cannot wait for the next session as the quality is superb – Des Amey

Being someone who attends a lot of personal development events, it can be difficult sometimes to see what value an event can bring to you. Saying this, I still attended the Building Self-Confidence and Personal Development event on Saturday 14th March 2020 with an open mind, hoping to get information to help with my personal development. I was so surprised by how good this event was compared to others. I learnt so much about myself and how to enjoy the journey. The level of positive energy was incredible, and most importantly, Esther and the other speakers were so inspiring, reminding us that we are capable of literally achieving anything we set our minds to. Will highly recommend! – Ola Atoba 

The Building Self-Confidence and Personal Development workshop on Saturday 14th March 2020 was yet another great event. As someone who has attended many of Esther’s events, I can honestly say her events seem to be getting better and better. The guest speakers were amazing and I loved the transparency and openness of each of the speakers, including Esther. It was a very thought-provoking, inspiring and encouraging event. I highly recommend this event to everyone as there is always room for all of us to build on our personal development/confidence regardless of how successful we may be. This event encouraged/reminded me that in order to reach the optimal level of growth, I need to step outside of my comfort zone. Congrats to Esther on another great event! – Josephine Asuquo

Building self-confidence and personal development is compulsory. If you want to build these key attributes in 2021, you are in the right place! Book your space today and let us help you build your own self-confidence and personal development.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 27th March at 14.00pm prompt.

TWO YEARS AGO…

 

Two years ago, on Friday 11th May 2018 was the day my eyes opened. I remember getting ready for work, when the phone rang. I heard my sister crying downstairs and knew something was up. Whilst doing my make-up, I remained calm and rushed downstairs. Then I heard the words: Glory’s gone! I had a very strong feeling that was the case because there’s a type of cry one cries when it’s death-related. I remember heading to the train station and arriving to work. I didn’t even eat breakfast at home because I was trying to understand whole situation. A woman like me going to work the same day my big sister passed away…woah!

Moving on, here I am today. Two years later. I can’t say the journey has been easy or I’ll be lying to you. The journey, the risks, the silent tears have been demeaning, but the strength, joy, and wisdom that these past two years has brought to my heart are key lessons I’ll forever cherish. I decided to leave my full-time job to pursue my career in writing and public speaking. At the time my sister passed, I already had two books. The vision I had was to continue writing more books and run quarterly workshops. This vision became a reality. Without no financial backup or another source of income or job, I took the leap of faith and left what was extremely comfortable with a very good pay, to remember what my purpose is and why I exist. I couldn’t put a price tag on my sister; no amount of money is worth a loved one.

I did not want to keep doing the same routine; I wanted to impact lives. My vision to set up Authentic Worth is to help, support and bring worth back into people through storytelling and book-writing. Since then, I’ve managed to host several book workshops, social events, annual book launches, and most importantly, publishing four Authors books in 2019. I’ve also been invited from several TV presenters and companies to talk about Authentic Worth and my book-writing career which has been humbling, as well as promoting my books in WHSmith.

The vision is growing and many people are inspired to write books. I wrote my third book titled From Glory to Glory – a book dedicated to my late sister. Her name is Glory and I decided to name the book after her as a way for her legacy to live on. I decided to turn the book into an audiobook because of its impact and life-changing transformation. I knew there was so much in me that wanted to give out to people. Was I nervous? Of course. Did I have a plan? Indeed, I did and I still do! However, I didn’t allow my fears to entangle me; rather I trapped them by keeping it moving and not remaining complacent.

I refused to look at what I didn’t have…support or no support…income or no income, none of that stopped me. If it did, I would have quit, but I didn’t. Authentic Worth is still running and will be two years in October 2020. Don’t allow financial burdens, low self-esteem or lack of support to stop you from doing what you’ve been called to do. If the world hasn’t stopped, then why have you?

Authentic Worth is passionate and intentional about bringing worth and investing in aspiring authors to share their story with confidence and turn their pain into purpose. Many people are sitting on their gifts for fear that nobody will notice them, so they feel inclined to stay in the same position. I don’t want anyone to feel trapped; there has to come a point where you know what you want and go for it. I never knew the impact of not having a consistent income would do to me, but it didn’t take me off course. The results may not show forth as I intend for them to be, but step-by-step, I’ll endeavour to stand with those who are willing to share their story with boldness. Your story is your story and no one can take it away from you.

This is my story…I have been on a journey, and it has been a hard one. The decisions I’ve made to be the woman I am today is only by the Grace of God. I can’t do this on my own. I know what is ahead of me is greater than what I originally had in mind. I am not saying you have to copy what I did, you must apply wisdom first! Not everyone is called to do a 9-5 and not everyone is called to be an entrepreneur. They both have their advantages and disadvantages, regardless, it carries a lot of triumphs and a lot of pain, but it will be worth it! There is no position that is better than the other. Your purpose, however, should be more than money or position. It should transform the lives of others around you and bring change in a broken society.

Don’t sit on your gifts; you don’t have to wait until something drastic happens before you make a change. Look around you. There are many people wanting to hear your story and utilise your talents. I am glad and excited for all our 2020 Authors and looking forward to helping you publish your book and get it out to the world.

Remember: If you don’t believe in yourself or your vision, how will others believe in it? Don’t sit on your gifts.

Authentic Worth is bringing worth back into you through storytelling and book-writing!

PERAZIM MAGAZINE INTERVIEW

“The pain you go through isn’t for you to keep it in; it is an opportunity to bring hope and restoration to the broken”

I am humbled to partner with Perazim Magazine. I’ve been able to selflessly share my story of how 2018 changed the trajectory of my life, what I’m currently doing and the impact God has given me in the lives of others to inspire and encourage through storytelling and book-writing through my business Authentic Worth.

When there is a vision, God will make the provision. I’m still on my way to greatness and I know that what God has started, He will surely complete it in my life. It doesn’t end here. This is just the beginning and I look forward to every promise being fulfilled – the future is looking bright!

My name is Queen – born for such a time as this (Esther 4:14🌹). I’m not ashamed of my story; it makes me who I am. @perazimmagazine Spring edition Issue XI is out now. To get your copy in print and digital and read many other inspirational stories, grab yours here!

JUST KEEP GOING!

I know it isn’t always easy, but you have to keep going. I have been finding ways to understand and help people nurture and utilise their gifts and make it work for them effectively. Recently, I have been asked the question of “what do you do when you are unemployed” or “how did you spend your time not working”. My answer was: “it is in you to create the job rather than find the job”. I’ll explain further:

A lot of us, if not all, tend to make job searching a priority, because it must be the quickest way to make money right? _________ <—- I’ll allow you to fill in the blank 🙂

What if you are constantly applying but not getting any responses? They all seem to be rejection, sighs and frustrations. I secured my first full-time job after a good three years from graduating. Was it easy to wait? No. Was it worth the wait? Yes! During my time of not working, (although I must humbly admit, I was only working between 8-15 hours a week in retail part time, so still wasn’t as easy at it looked). I used my unemployment season to create a YouTube channel, made my first wig, socialised and collaborated with different people, and more importantly worked on myself by publishing my first book.

You see, this life will either make you do two things:

1) STAY STILL AND DO NOTHING OR;
2) KEEP GOING

The choice is down to you. There is no excuse to be lazy, dormant, or waiting for the ‘right opportunity’. YOU ARE ALREADY THE RIGHT OPPORTUNITY! You must position your mind to believe this, or you will be waiting a very long time. No one has the same fingerprint or DNA as you. Looking at how others are coping with life will not change yours. You have to keep up the pace and move. Don’t stay stagnant, even when rejection comes! Use that rejection to create an opportunity.

God has put so much in you that if you aren’t willing to identify it, you will forfeit the process and miss the blessing. Had it not been for the constant rejections of my past when trying to secure a job, I would not have been able to write my first book in 2016. Now I have written three books, created an online course for aspiring authors, built Authentic Worth, and conducting events and workshops.

Even when the support isn’t there, which usually happens at the beginning stages, you will realise gradually that through the amount of time and effort put into working on your craft, someone will help you with the journey, as long as you don’t give up! Remember this, because there are people who are inspired by you, without realising it! Don’t give up!
