To build improved confidence to perform well at school and in exams, it is important to help young people develop a mindset that they can improve. Science shows us that our brains can change, so nobody’s abilities are fixed.

However, building confidence can be difficult. That means our A.P.E. Brain® and H.U.E. make us question if we really can improve. They can often make us give up too easily.

What do we need to build improved confidence?

We need to understand how to use Will Power to take control of our confidence and how this helps us manage our emotions in any given situation.

Emotions can be helpful, or unhelpful. For example, it can be helpful to be angry with ourselves for a short period if we haven’t given our best efforts on a task, and failed as a result. On the other hand , it can be unhelpful to be angry if we did our best but the result was not what we wanted.

People who successfully manage and build improved confidence do not dwell on such unhelpful emotions and thoughts for too long. And they are able to refocus onto more helpful thoughts.


“[The Me Power programme] provides a voice that teenagers are more likely to listen to. They can’t argue with the science.” – a parent.


In order to improve this emotional management process and build improved confidence, we need to remember that because the A.P.E. Brain® is so powerful we will experience unhelpful emotions. But the faster we can use the H.A.C. Brain and Will Power to move past them onto helpful emotions, the less problematic they will be for our health, happiness and academic performance.


Improved Confidence


We need skills to build improved confidence

In order to use the H.A.C. Brain and Will Power to build improved confidence we need to develop a series of specific skills. The Me Power programme has a high effective method for developing and deploying these. Significantly, it includes tactics to manage our emotions by writing them down and learning from previous successful experiences.
