I am a firm believer in the power of self-belief, but I think it is often brushed aside as hokey. It is not simply a ploy used by motivational speakers, but it is something that truly matters. How we perceive ourself and our abilities has an impact on who we are and how we perform across numerous areas of life. Think about the concept of growth-mindset vs. fixed mindset discussed in The Power of Believing You Can Improve. It is the same idea, but more specific to learning. I really enjoyed this talk from Layne Beachley; she is so personable and expresses herself so clearly. I hope you like it!
When do you most doubt yourself? I doubt myself in performance-based tasks, like presentations or interviews….but I am working to change that!
