How self-confidant are you? Most of us think we are pretty self-confidant, yet we often wonder why we aren’t getting more out of life. What stops us from taking risks? What keeps us stuck in dead end jobs, or unhappy relationships. Could we possibly be less confident than we think? Why not take this quiz and find out?

More special news:
As you know, I have recently moved to Pierrefonds. I am sure you will love my new office and the big room I have available is warm and inviting. However, the move was extensive and exhausting and I ended up with tendonitis and bursitis and a lot of pain. I tried anti-inflammatory medication but it didn’t help much. Then I met a very special lady. Her name is Shirleen Johnson and she is a Reiki Master and Practitioner. Not only is she amazing, but she actually does house calls and has very reasonable fees. I had so much relief from only one session, that I begged her for one more. Now, after only 2 sessions with her, I have full movement of my arm, no pain and no pills. Shirleen has offered to give you the same great service as I received. She said just call her at 514-656-0838 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her I recommended her to you and she will also give you a 10% discount and still come to your house for the session. How great is that???
