SHOW DESCRIPTION: In a highly competitive society like ours, it is easy to get discouraged and feel you are not good enough. I even experience this at times! Often, we can be our own worst enemy: we know the change we want to make in the world, but we talk ourselves out of it. But this doesn’t have to be the case. In this podcast I speak with Seth Godin, best-selling author, marketing guru and thought leader, about dealing with the pain of criticism, why we should avoid reassurance, overcoming imposter syndrome, why attitudes are skills to be learned, and more!
