Whether on the field, at the office or in the home: self-confidence is one of the biggest factors differentiating success from failure. Time and again, studies show that the happiest, most successful people have deep-rooted grit: the ability to persevere despite setbacks.
Award-winning coach, mentor and speaker Ivan Joseph shares a supportive, original guide to developing your own. Contrary to popular thinking, Joseph shows that self-confidence is a skill that can be trained and honed.
And he should know. Born in Guyana and brought up in poverty in Toronto, Joseph earned multiple sports scholarships throughout his athletic career, led multiple sports teams to national victories, and continues to develop his own 'grit' as an internationally renowned speaker.
Taking strategies learned from the field, Joseph offers a definitive, step-by-step approach to deepening your own self-confidence. Uplifting stories and practical exercises within the book help you to develop resilience, team building, higher expectations and focus.
Shared passionately with supportive, no-nonsense writing, You Got This is a transformative 'coach' for ambitious individuals looking to change their lives for the better.
