The Skill of Self-Confidence

Before you complete your assignment for this week, and finish the class to then go take other courses for your major, watch this TedTalk by Dr. Ivan Joseph as he teaches people about how to gain and maintain self-confidence so you can go and achieve whatever your goals are in life. With self-confidence, and computational and critical thinking, you can solve any problem put before you! Questions for reflection.


1. What are the self-confidence skills that Dr. Ivan outlines to help people gain and maintain self-confidence to be successful?

2. What would you write in your own brag letter that you’ve done in your life thus far to stop negative self-talk?
