The Skill Of Self Confidence | TED TAUGHT ME THURSDAY
‘The ability to believe in yourself to accomplish any task no matter the odds, no matter the difficulty, no matter the adversity’. One of the most universally expressed advices ever given is ‘Believe In Yourself’, but do we actually understand what a devoted faith in self entails? They say believe in yourself like it’s a religion, and just like any religion, self belief requires a die-hard unshaken commitment. I mean, If you do not believe in yourself who will?? (definitely not Dettol). You could be the most gifted human on the planet but without that belief in your self regardless of how short-sighted, you end up being even more regular than the regular Joe. The value of this most basic belief can never be overemphasised because this intrinsic belief is what builds or breaks you. Every day is a fresh opportunity to add a new brick to your sterming self-belief lego edifice and this will ultimately be the much needed catapult to reaching the zeniths of greatness.
‘Athletic Director and head coach of the Varsity Soccer team at Ryerson University, Dr. Joseph is often asked what skills he is searching for as a recruiter: is it speed? Strength? Agility? In Dr. Joseph’s TEDx Talk, he explores self confidence and how it is not just the most important skill in athletics, but in our lives.’
