Feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy can drive us to overeat. Yet if we listen to conventional self-help to “just ignore your inner critic and crush your fears”, you lose self-trust. In this nuanced conversation, I talk with Melody Wilding, a licensed social worker, TEDx speaker and Human Behavior faculty member at the City University of New York.

In today’s episode, we discuss the:

1.1. The counter-intuitive way to make self-doubt an ally, not an enemy

2.2. How being highly conscientious gives you a competitive edge yet can also turn into a weakness and how to mitigate the downside of being so on the ball

3.3. The imposter syndrome and how it gets high achievers to question so much about themselves and the solution is NOT to play to your strengths!
