Weekly inspiration! A TED Talk and another pin!

Hello people!  I hope you all are having a wonderful week.
I love this quote because if you want to live a life free of criticism, don’t attempt to make something of yourself.
Criticism is expected, especially when you are trying to make something of yourself.  Don’t fear it, embrace it.  Criticism can be constructive, and help you better yourself or perhaps improve designs, like my little blogadoo.  I’ve made numerous adjustments to my blog already based on constructive criticism from others.  It’s not something to be feared.

I have watched this video many times.  This is one of my favorite TED talks.  He talks about Self-Confidence and how it is a skill that you can develop over time.  Just because you are not confident now, doesn’t mean that you cannot become confident.  Like any other skill, it requires practice.  Practice practice practice.  You cannot just suddenly become confident.  It requires you to work at it.
I love how he defines self-confidence: “The ability or the belief to believe in yourself, to accomplish any task, no matter the odds, no matter the difficulty, no matter the adversity.  The belief that you can accomplish it.”
