TYL #8: My (Unlikely) Path to Beating Self-Doubt

Written by on 29 Mar 2016

Let me channel one of my favorite TED talks of all time for a moment.


Drew Dudley, I’m lookin’ at you.


Can you remember the last time someone said something or did something that fundamentally made your life better?


Maybe it was a teacher who told you that you were good enough. Maybe it was a childhood friend who held your hand when you fell and scraped your knee. Or maybe it was a total stranger who put their cell phone down while they were interacting with you and actually looked you in the eye.


I mean… it’s the little things, right?!


In today’s podcast, I share the story of how two sentences in a very unlikely email changed my life forever.


This podcast is great for you if you have ever questioned if you were good enough, wondered if you had anything worth saying, or put off making a decision because you were scared of what others would think.


Here’s a play by play of some of my favorite moments:
