Dr. Gio Valiante, head performance coach at Point72 Asset Management, believes that confidence is one of the most important factors for success. But that doesn't mean that all types of confidence are helpful. In this episode, Valiante explains the difference between confidence from arrogance and confidence from process, and provides an anecdote demonstrating how the right type of confidence can pay off at the highest levels of competition.

    True confidence comes from self-acceptance, knowing your strengths and weaknesses, and trusting in your ability to learn from mistakes through self-reflection. Arrogance is usually a defence against your weaknesses, often masking a deep fear of failure. Being honest with yourself isn't easy, but taking the time and effort to truly know, love and accept yourself will lift your game no matter what industry you are in. Great piece, thank you.
