Marshall Goldsmith Shows How You Can Choose Your Life
“Confidence is a belief that you can accomplish what you set out to do. It's the product of all your other positive virtues and choices.”

Nashville, TN (Newsworthy.ai) Tuesday Jul 5, 2022 @ 9:00 AM Pacific —

In a blog post about confidence, adapted from his new book The Earned Life, renowned leadership coach and bestselling author Marshall Goldsmith explores how confidence is a major component of success.

Goldsmith writes: “Confidence is a belief that you can accomplish what you set out to do. But it’s more than that — it’s a belief in your own abilities. It’s not arrogance — it’s strength of character. It’s an understanding that you can succeed. Confidence is the product of all your other positive virtues and choices, and then it returns the favor by making you even stronger in those areas.”

One of the things that the continuing war in Ukraine is affecting is people’s confidence. In Europe, for example, people are less confident in spending power, in personal safety and in the near-term future, which is having a negative effect on the economy.. Trade disruptions and soaring energy and commodity prices are darkening the outlook for the region.

Confidence is something that can come and go depending on external factors, but often arises from within.

In The Earned Life Goldsmith uncovers the source of today’s existential crises, including regrets that stem from choices that irrevocably alter our lives, reroute destinies, and haunt our memories. These are particularly timely themes today.

With Goldsmith’s book as a guide, readers can close the gap between what they plan to achieve and what they actually get done—even in a world full of inescapable unfairness and curveballs—and live an earned life that is fulfilling in the long run.
