This Week’s Episode:
I’m in the audience at a business conference when the speaker suddenly asks, “Who here is an artist? Raise your hand.” While a lot of hands go up, mine isn’t one of them.
My friend in the next seat elbows me in the side and says, “Raise your hand.”
I whisper to him, “I’m not an artist, I’m an athlete.” I’d never think to plaster that label on myself. Being an artist is reserved for painters and pop stars, not me.
He whispers back, “Hello! You’re a Black Belt, a Martial Artist. You ARE an artist.”
In that exact moment, a lightbulb goes off. He’s right. Martial Arts *is* an art form. Hello - it’s literally in the name! I also realize then and there that the labels I put on myself are subjective and not necessarily a complete picture of who I am to others and to the world.
My guest today is a military officer, an orthodontist and pageant queen who knows all about labels and turning them into your competitive advantage. In today’s show, Dr. Corinne Devin talks about the commonalities you can discover between very different careers, building confidence on the inside and the outside, and overcoming the stories others try to tell you about yourself.
How can you translate common skills between completely different jobs? How do you deal with limitations that others want to place on you? What do people get wrong about confidence? Discover the answers to those questions and more in this episode!
You’ll also hear about the career counselor giving questionable advice, how to harness the energy to prove wrong those who say you can’t be, do, or have what you want, and what to do when you’re multi-passionate and feel drawn to play very different roles in your life and career.
What you will learn in this episode:
- Why admitting your struggles is actually a sign of confidence
- What you can do to gain instant confidence if you lack it
- How to reverse the limiting stories you tell about yourself
