On this segment of Advice From the Pros, business consultant and author, Jon Gordon, discusses how positive self-talk can be the key to overcoming self-doubt.
Hey, I’m Jon Gordon and the best advice I ever heard from Dr. James Gills, the only person on the planet to complete six double-Ironman triathlons, and the last time he did it he was 59 years old. He was asked how he did it. He said, “I’ve learned to talk to myself instead of listen to myself.” He said, “If I listen to myself, I hear all the negative, all the fear, all the doubt, and all the complaints. But if I talk to myself, I can feed myself with the words and the encouragement that I need to keep on moving forward.”
Don’t listen to yourself. Talk to yourself as you build your business, as you grow your career, as you create the future.
