The Battle between Confidence and Humility
When I started my book tour, people were always asking me, “How are you going to stay humble?” It’s not easy. When you start getting recognition, it can go to your head. But you can’t share your message if you don’t believe in yourself. It’s a balance. You need to be confident but also know that it’s not all about you. You are a part of the story, not the whole thing. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Brad Lomenick where we explore the tension between confidence and humility. Brad Lomenick is a renowned speaker, writer, leadership advisor, and founder of Blinc Consulting. He is the author of the groundbreaking book, The Catalyst Leader: Eight Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker, as well as his most recent leadership book, H3 Leadership: Be Humble, Stay Hungry, Always Hustle. Brad says that the best leaders all have healthy ambition. Learn how to dance the dance of humility and confidence in Episode 762.

Terry Crews on Success, Accountability, and Toxic Masculinity
So many of us hide who we truly are. We bury our shame thinking that if anyone knew we would no longer be accepted. But living this way keeps us from connecting with others. It keeps us from truly experiencing life. I kept my history of abuse hidden for a long time. It wasn’t until I told my story that I could become the person I am today. You have to forgive yourself. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about shame with a person of great courage and integrity: Terry Crews. Terry Crews is an actor, activist, artist, and former NFL football player. He plays “Terry” on Brooklyn 99 and is now a host on America’s Got Talent. Terry was included among the group of people named as Time Magazine's Person of the Year in 2017 for going public with stories of sexual assault.
