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)

    "There’s enough people telling us we can’t do it. Why do we want to tell that to ourselves?". Just WOW.



  22. Flower Pot on October 14, 2019 at 3:25 pm

    confidence comes with having good role models when you are growiing up. Im not just refering to parents but your teacher, doctor, police etc…how can you be confident if you dont have the solid foundation at the begining. I have heard Iyandla Vanzant say "if you want to know what the future is then you must go back to the beginging" well in hearing that gives me no confidence.



  23. Wanda dacounselor on October 14, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    This really helped me. I just started a New job and felt overwhelmed.. this video has helped along with prayer n self confidence



  24. GreenIce on October 14, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    Isolate yourself from toxic people. Start making connections with winners not losers. If you can’t find one in your workplace have lunch with someone outside your workplace.



  25. Anthony Louis Garavito on October 14, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    Great speech!



  26. Coach Sanity on October 14, 2019 at 3:33 pm

    What I see are parents shouting plays/cues from the sidelines, disallowing their kids to figure their "on the field" strategy.



  27. TheAirforce141 on October 14, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    Important Clippings:

    – Self-confidence is the ability or belief to believe in yourself to accomplish any task
    – He sees it as a skill because he believes it can be trained.

    1. The easiest way to build self-confidence, repetition, Maybe it shouldn’t be repetition, but maybe it should be persistence.
    – Get out there, do what you want to do, and do not accept no.

    2. The other one is self-talk; We know for a fact that thoughts influence actions. We need to get our own self affirmations.

    – Get away from people who will tear you down, there is enough of that. All the things that make him who he is, he puts down on a list besides his mirror.

    – Your own brag sheets. Your own letter about the things you are proud of.

    – Stop the negative self-talk.

    3. You can teach self-confidence in others. Because we are educators, we are critical by nature in what we do.

    – Catch them while they’re good. Praise the positive behavior we want to reinforce.

    4. Self-confident people interpret feedback the way they choose too. No one will believe in you, unless you do.

    We are supposed to be different.

  35. Vikash Yadav on October 14, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    I’m a dropper for JEE. Thank you for boosting my confidence level : D



  36. Emma Brown on October 14, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    How can you can you tell what to persist in in the first place? Some of my regrets are for persisting for too long in relationships or jobs I didn’t realize were hurting me. I told myself, "no, you wanted this, if you just persist, you can make it work" BECAUSE of my low self confidence. Looking back after leaving I feel like more of a survivor than a quitter now. But I want to start making more life choices that I can thrive in not just survive in and I don’t know how



  37. Annaliza Villacorte on October 14, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    Repetition repetition repetition..❤️thank you ..your amazing

    "Catch them when they’re good" man that hits me so hard i had clumps in my throat . i hope my parents did that to me since i was a kid. :'(



  43. ya kim on October 14, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    1. Persist until familiar
    2. Self-motivating
    3. Own explanation on feedbacks

    If wanna help, catch the good moments and tell them.



  44. Queen Sofia Villamil on October 14, 2019 at 3:55 pm

    Nobody believes in you unless you do
