Build your self-confidence

Reading Room
An Open Window
Sri Madhava Ashish

Have you ever dreamt that you are "late for an appointment, missing trains and buses, unprepared for examinations, not fully dressed when guests arrive, or losing your way"? Perhaps, it is anxiety that is finding its way to dreams, postulates Sri Madhava Ashish in An Open Window (http://www.penguinbooksindia.com/).

The cure for anxiety does not lie in forcing yourself to work harder so as to be better prepared, he advises. Because, by so doing, you may "fall victim to the current glorification of competitiveness and success, which leads only to a self-confidence based on the unstable ground of personal achievement."
