THE C WORD IS YOUR PATHWAY TO A LIFE FULL OF COURAGE, CONFIDENCE AND SUCCESS.

FACT: The global pandemic has been tough, leaving many of us with a CRISIS OF CONFIDENCE.

Many aspects of our world are outside our control.  But one thing that lies completely in our hands is our attitude and approach to who we are and how we show up in our relationships, careers and life.

No matter WHO you are or WHAT you’ve been through, you have the POWER to create the future life you WANT.

SAY GOODBYE TO:

 ■ AVOIDING asking for what you want out of fear 

■ Feeling like people are constantly JUDGING you

 ■ Feeling JEALOUS of confident women and wishing you could be like them

 ■ REGRETTING not speaking up for yourself in your career, relationships and life

 ■ Feeling FRUSTRATED and DISAPPOINTED in yourself for not putting yourself out there

 ■ DOUBTING that you can achieve the success you really deserve

 ■ Feeling like a winner in your career but a LOSER in relationships

 ■ GETTING NOWHERE despite all the time you’re investing in every self-help book and podcast you can get your hands on.

AND SAY HELLO TO A NEW WAY OF LIVING SO YOU CAN:

 ■ MASTER FEAR and expand the POSSIBILITIES in your life

 ■  Develop SMART COURAGE to make you feel comfortable taking risks and being seen

 ■ Feel DEEP CONFIDENCE about meeting new people and trying new experiences

 ■ Experience FLUID COMPETENCE and become someone who gets noticed

 ■ SAY NO to bad opportunities without a second thought

 ■ SAY YES to new relationships and experiences that TICK all your boxes

 ■ Feel INSPIRED and EXCITED that you can start living your best life.

FACT: The findings of the Australian Psychological Society Stress and Wellbeing in Australia survey 2015 showed that the things women struggle most with are money, relationships and health. 

In addition to money, relationships and health, my experience tells me that women have a range of other worries (and when I say ‘worries’ I mean types of self-sabotage).  

CAREER BOOST?
  • Do you lack the confidence to speak up in meetings?
  • Are you overwhelmed when you need to give a presentation?
  • Are you afraid of asking for that pay rise you deserve?
FERTILITY CONFIDENCE BOOST?
  • Are you consumed by worries about your ability to fall pregnant or stay pregnant?
  • Have fertility issues broken your confidence in your body and your relationship?
  • Do you doubt you have what it takes to be a good mother?
RELATIONSHIPS BOOST?
  • Are you afraid of putting yourself out there?
  • Do you find you are attracting the ‘wrong’ type of person?
  • Are you tired of going on dates that lead nowhere?
FINANCE BOOST?
  • Are you worried about your financial security?
  • Does every decision in your life revolve around money?
  • Are money related issues having a negative impact on your relationships?
HEALTH BOOST
  • Do you always feel tired and wish you had more zest for life?
  • Do you have trouble falling asleep because your mind is racing?
  • Are you constantly worried about your health or the health of others?
BODY IMAGE BOOST?
  • When you leave the house, do you feel like everyone is looking at you and judging your appearance?
  • Do you not love your body but don’t hate it either?
  • Do you look at other people and wish you looked more like them?
A DIFFERENT BOOST?
  • Do you need a different kind of boost that you’d like to talk to me about?

IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS,
THE C WORD IS MADE FOR YOU!

The C Word is a life strategy. It’s not a fluffy WISH for a better life. It’s a proven, evidence-based approach to upgrading your cognitive, emotional and behavioural experience so that you can nail living your best life with courage, confidence and competence.

I imagine some people look at you from the outside and think “She has it all”. You are outwardly successful in certain aspects of your life, maybe even considered a leader. As a high-achiever, you have serious expectations for yourself and people see your results as inspiring.

But you know the truth.
Beneath the surface, you have some doubts. You question yourself and your capability, maybe even your worth. Sometimes, you wonder if you deserve the success you have achieved.

Sometimes, you feel like a fraud.

WHAT WILL THE C WORD DO FOR YOU?

Experiencing The C Word will enable you to:

  • Recognise your fear triggers and redirect your energy towards POSITIVE action
  • Develop a GROWTH MINDSET and open your mind to your own unlimited potential
  • EXPAND YOUR COMFORT ZONE so you can comfortably grow into new experiences without triggering your anxiety
  • Live your life without FEAR of failure by seeing failure as FEEDBACK
  • Believe that you DESERVE to be happy and successful
  • Draw on your past experience to build an evidence-based case for your CAPABILITY
  • Tap into your capacity to powerfully INFLUENCE others
  • Unleash your CONFIDENCE CONTAGION to enable you to build the courage and confidence of others

SOUNDS APPEALING, DOESN'T IT?

It is about creating a better life through real confidence, courage, and resilience applied to every-day living.

The guru of Positive Psychology, Professor Martin Seligaman, says that wellbeing is achieved when we can actively promote our positive emotions, engagement, positive relationships, meaning and achievement. You can see how this makes sense!

But, my 20 years experience tells me that these 5 elements are very tricky to address if your confidence is in the toilet. RIGHT…?

So, by targeting a range of specific life areas and boosting confidence and courage here (based on cognitive restructuring and skill-building) we can start to build your confidence and ultimately, your sense of wellbeing. You need real confidence based on a solid and proven set of beliefs about your capability, a deep sense of self-esteem that consistently tells you that you deserve happiness and success, and the unwavering train of thought that says

“I CAN!”

Once this is achieved, wellbeing starts to develop naturally.

HOW DOES THE C WORD WORK?

This is a women-only, online group coaching experience - I will take you by the hand and gently show you how to take control of each sphere of your life while boosting confidence, self-esteem and resilience.

I'VE DESIGNED THE C WORD TO INSPIRE, EDUCATE AND EMPOWER YOU!

I’ve developed The C Word Method to step you through the stages of developing confidence.  The method includes four key stages and I’ll be with you each step of the way.

You can work through the course material at your own pace, fitting it in with your busy lifestyle.  You’ll gain access to a new module each month and most women find it helpful to allocate 2-4 hours each week for their work (Don’t worry, I’ll provide you with an overall project plan and monthly checklist to keep you on track).

The C Word Method takes you through 6 core modules – you’ll begin with a self awareness foundational module, then the 4 core confidence modules, then finish with a goal-setting module to set you up for ongoing, sustainable results.

The C Word Method takes you through 6 core modules(1 module each month for 6 months) – you’ll begin with a self awareness foundational module, then the 4 core confidence modules, then finish with a goal-setting module to set you up for ongoing, sustainable results.

SELF AWARENESS

Before delving into the confidence modules, you’ll start by gaining a deeper level of self understanding. You’ll begin by uncovering the unique aspects of yourSELF, the things that drive you, motivate you and give your life purpose.

By the end of this stage, you will:

  • Discover your highest values and the non-negotiables in your life
  • Define your greatest strengths and how to leverage them to build confidence
  • Explore your life balance and learn how to make regular adjustments
  • Figure out the missing pieces in your confidence puzzle

FEAR MASTERY

This is all about lifting the lid on the fears and beliefs that are currently holding you back. You will look your fears in the face, learn where they have come from and discover how to move past them.

By the end of this stage, you will:

  • Recognise the interaction between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
  • Develop an understanding of your own fear response and be able to convert your feelings of fear into feelings of excitement
  • Kick ‘Imposter Syndrome’ to the curb by changing the narrative of your self-talk
  • Develop your ‘Growth Mindset’
  • Overcome your fears and feel your courage starting to emerge

SMART COURAGE

This is about suspending your fear so you can jump … and build your parachute on the way down. It’s about conscious, considered risk-taking within the context of self-preservation and goal attainment.

By the end of this stage, you will:

  • Know what smart courage is (and isn’t) and how it feels to be courageous
  • Set your intention, make a decision about what you want and what you need to do in order to achieve your outcome
  • Use my reframing technique to change the way you talk to yourself and improve you career and relationships
  • Refine your personal brand

DEEP CONFIDENCE

The next stage enables you to understand and build both self esteem and self efficacy. These are the core pillars of confidence and will open your mind to a new world of possibilities. Step-by-step, you will expand your comfort zone and discover your spotlight.

By the end of this stage, you will:

  • Experience more positive emotions
  • Understand why confidence is such a big deal
  • Feel less fear and anxiety, greater motivation, improved relationships and a stronger sense of your authentic self

FLUENT COMPETENCE

Next, you will put courage and confidence into practice.  You will blossom into your potential as you discover new ways to make decisions, solve problems and influence others.
By the end of this stage, you will:

  • Take bite-sized, goal-focussed, action-oriented steps towards your goals
  • Understand the power of YET
  • Know how to get what you want and deserve

GOAL SETTING

And finally, you’ll take all the knowledge and wisdom you have gained so far and pour it into the perfect, most congruent set of personal goals.

By the end of this stage, you will:

  • Have a clear vision of your future self
  • Integrate your values, strengths and deepest desires into your challenging goals
  • Build a strong blueprint for your weekly and monthly action-focused steps
  • Feel strong, poised and confident about the new life you are creating


WHO AM I TO LEAD YOU?


If we haven’t met, I’m Mel Schilling and I’m here to lead you into courage, confidence and competence in 2022.  That’s my mission.

Based in London, UK, I spent 20 years as a psychologist, 15 years as a corporate consultant, 10 years as a personal and career coach and 5 years in the media (yep, in reality TV).  These days, I mostly focus on media projects and working with a select group of women like you.

Every new chapter in my career and life has started with One Courageous Step.  From an early age, I discovered a passion for expanding my comfort zone and testing my own limits - I know, not everyone enjoys this!  I learned very early on that if I was going to live an extraordinary life, I needed to break old patterns and do things differently.  I needed to not just meet but exceed the expectations of others and show them that I was not ‘just a dreamer’.

And I showed them.

 

As a kid, all I ever wanted to do was work in TV and now, here I am with a full time career in the media.  But it wasn’t easy.  I was often told to ‘calm down’ and ‘slow down’.  Maybe it was Tall Poppy Syndrome or maybe my drive and ambition just made other people feel uncomfortable.  I’m not sure why people didn’t believe in my HUGE goals.  But I did.

The resistance from others just strengthened my resolve.  I became determined to prove them wrong and gradually, I began to internalise my own steely belief.

 



UNDERESTIMATE ME.

THAT'LL BE FUN
- (ANON)

 

  • Over years of mistakes, failures and knock-backs, I learned that these things are just feedback.  Just data to inform future decisions.
  • I developed a naturally optimistic outlook on life. I now genuinely see the glass as half full (even when those around me are screaming that it’s half empty).
  • My view of myself became one of clear, comfortable capability (3 more C words) - I began to calmly believe that I could actually achieve anything I wanted to.
  • I developed a highly flexible approach to obstacles, seeing them as temporary and changeable.
  • And I’m still in the process of building patience … this one doesn’t come so naturally to me
    #workinprogress

 

These lessons have enabled me to build an air-tight positive mindset, a healthy relationship with risk-taking, an unwavering self-belief and a dream career.  Not to mention I met my perfect life partner at 39 and had my gorgeous daughter at the age of 42.  Now approaching the BIG-5-0 I couldn’t be happier.

And now I’m here to show you how to do the same.

Well, let me know if this sounds familiar:

  • You suspect you have not yet tapped into your potential
  • You’re scared that you’ll end up with regrets or unfulfilled dreams
  • You’re sick of getting in your own way when it comes to relationships, your career and your life
  • You’re ready to take control of your own future
  • You value what you’ve accomplished in some areas of your life and you’re ready to extend this to every aspect of your world
  • You can’t wait to feel the satisfaction, pride and excitement of living a confident life

IF YOU ARE NODDING TO ANY OF THIS, THE C WORD IS PERFECT FOR YOU!

Aneliese

The most powerful thing was her being able to stop me in my tracks if I was going down a unhelpful thought pattern that I couldn’t see myself and call it out in a respectful and empathetic understanding way backed up by all her knowledge and insight together with helpful positive actions to focus on after. Mel’s a great role model. Kind and empathetic but also strong, intelligent, experienced, insightful with a really uplifting positive and motivating energy and has zest for life and a great purpose to help empower women to reach their potential.

 

Becca

I've gained such an insight into myself and my emotional reactions, understanding where I have lost confidence and how to reclaim it - because of this I feel I am better equipped to tackle new challenges and push myself to be the best I can be. Every challenge or success along the way I have felt more and more confident in addressing, I feel proud of myself and am able to recognise growth in myself. I think it would be of benefit to everyone to complete and feel empowered and proud of themselves and their own journeys.

 

SO, WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE?

It's a 6 month self paced programme with:

 

LEARNING - Access to my full suite of confidence-building strategies and techniques. Each module includes a series of video classes, worksheets, personal projects and motivational tools. You can work through these at your own pace.
