The skill of self confidence | Dr. Ivan Joseph | TEDxRyersonU

Never miss a talk! SUBSCRIBE to the TEDx channel: http://bit.ly/1FAg8hB As the 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. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

This could turn the person to be addicted to self-manipulating talk. The speaker in the video didn't offer practical ways to improve one's self-confidence. He only repeated the sum of self-help books and motivation tapes in an attractive way.

Shouldn't there be more attention for self-confidence at schools? I think a lot of young people question themselves, that should be trained by teachers at school like math for example...

Confident and I applaud people for their accomplishments. Everyone has a different struggle. It's unfortunate that certain people have such low self-esteem the only way the feel better about themselves is by putting someone down.

Yesss, our own voice is louder than anyone else's and we can consciously choose what to tell ourselves

All those who are struggling with failure there is a simple solution just remember this question "what would you do if you could not fail " ? Would you even do anything anymore therefore we can deduce that we do something because there is a chance of failure therefore we do things to fail so do not give up.
I like the reframe, FAIL = First Attempt In Learning

Well this works, so long as you catch them while they are good. If you tell them that they are doing good when they are doing bad or wrong....will create a personality disorder at some point. I know this to be true, because I seen this happen to several people over the years. I’m running into many young adults who are very narcissistic these days, because their egos were excessively stroked. You cannot tell them anything whatsoever.

My problem is that I think to much and I also don’t have confidence. I can only be around one friend and be 100% and have a great time. Of course that one friend is my best friend and pretty much my only friend and he’s a good person. I’m surrounded by rude people everyday and it’s weird. I can easily talk to people it’s just that I don’t know *how* to act like myself and I can only act my true self around this one friend. It’s like I act like a completely different person to everyone except my friend. When I act like this to the other people, I feel rude and this is not how I want to act but it’s like I’m being forced and have no control over it. If anyone can help would be appreciated (I’m a 7th grade boy)

When I don’t act myself I feel rude.
Out of curiosity, what makes you think you're being rude when you act like yourself in front of others?

Confidence is an internal system based on experiences and our environment. talking and using therapy as a tool for self development can be massively beneficial.

I have been an inner-city elementary teacher for 35 years. I know your talk was geared to adults, but I would like to make a plea here for you to consider offering a similar talk to young people . I think it would help many of them get through those awkward years of intermediate and middle school, when their hormones are kicking in and peer pressure can be more influential then reason. In short, please consider making some of your motivational speeches with a G rating. I was prepared to show this video to my students until I heard you use profanity. Even though I'm sure kids today have heard it, as an educator and child advocate, I can't condone exposing young people to it. Awesome message, would love to see a youth version.
Agreed, younger individuals can benefit from this kind of work more than ever now
