    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 was a time my anxiety was so high that even going to the barber was suicide. Now im 19, living on my own, hunting for jobs and slowly talking to people, at the end of the year ill join university and pursue my dreams, wish me luck.

    I learned more in 13 minutes than I have over all those years back in high school . The counselor humiliated me in front of the whole class saying that I was not smart enough to go to college. It stayed with me for many years. By the way, I have 1 bachelor and 2 master degrees today.

    Easiest and fastest way to gain confidence is to do exactly what you are afraid of.

    he was my athletic director at my university. I remember talking to him and sort of asking(begging) him if i can drive his model S he was so nice to throw the keys to me and in his voice said " run before i change my mind". Nicest guy you'll meet.

    Amazing talk, I remember watching this video while I was in high-school, didn't understood much back then, but now that I look back at it I implemented a lot of things that were talked in this video without even knowing.

    I watched this last year and it motivated me to run a marathon. Now I've done 2 marathons in total and a bunch of other races. Got 3 marathons planned for next year. Believing in yourself is very important!!

    10 years later I'm still going back to this video which really changed my life and made me who I am today. At that time, me as a Brazillian still did not understand english, but I watched it many times, translating every word and it inspired me. 2 Years later, I became fluent in english and went to US to study Manufacturing Engineering there and then I came back to my home country. Today I'm a polyglot, I have a good job and the life I wished to have 10 years ago, which I was able to construct with the self confidence, motivation and a lot of effort videos and books like this tought me. I know Dr. Ivan will never read my comment, but I just want to say: THANK YOU !!! Regards from Brazil!! It's awesome how a video posted can change lives many many miles away and for years!

    This reminds me of my high school biology teacher. She did not take “I dont know” as an answer in class but there is such a fine line between embarrassing your students and encouraging them to speak up in class even if they think they have the wrong answers. Maths class was a nightmare, the teacher was always calling out names and making people stand up and solve problems on the chalk board. But biology❤️❤️ oh man... she would even go as far as telling us exactly what to research on for the next day so we could be prepared. And she’d allow us to help other students answer if they didnt know. It was such a positive experience and it encouraged us to be curious and just ask about other things we didnt understand even if that wasnt in the curriculum. Miss that lady. 1 of the best teachers ever

    So glad to have come across this video! So moving and powerful. This has pushed me further to want to help people in this way. I never realised how powerful spontaneity is. Do you have any more videos? Well done Tony for making such a brave decision for yourself and not just the money!

    Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong.

    my self confidence is really low right now and have been crying for many hours this evening. but this video gave me a tiny bit of joy. i can’t yet be as brave as you and face my fears and i can’t yet tell myself the words i want to hear but i will try. thank you.
