49: Gregory House's Boss

by Max Leibman

How awesome are you? How awesome do you think you are? And how much does the difference matter? 

This week, Priority turns its attention to confidence. Max feels secure enough to point out that confidence is born of success, which in turn is often born of luck. But he’s not self-assured  enough to discount such mere feelings of confidence. The confident, after all, are the ones who will have the courage to say “Yes!” when opportunity rings the doorbell. 

Meanwhile, Caitie boldly asserts that this kind of hope is valuable, whether grounded in our true abilities or not. She also shares some physiological hacks that can increase your feelings of confidence. 

Whether you feel brave or meek today, the Priority team is confident that this episode can help!
