I see too many people that don't bring enough "violence" to the slap shot. Don't be tentative, f*/cking (((BLAST))) that thing with everything you got!! Good Luck!!!
To sort of elaborate on your point.

1. People are afraid of being too hard on their stick. Don't be. They're made to take these kind of punishments.
2. Confidence roots from practice. So practice, if my point wasn't obvious enough.

Some other advices.

Like others have mentioned, you can try grabbing a bit lower with your bottom hand and taking half swings.

Try digging around on Youtube, there's quite a few useful tutorials on there.
