The actress and entrepreneur sat down with Arianna Huffington on the Thrive Global Podcast, where she spoke about handling rejection and learning from failure throughout her career.
Jessica Alba seems confident, but she admits that in the past, she’s made the mistake of placing too much weight on other people’s voices. The actress and entrepreneur recently joined Arianna Huffington on the Thrive Global Podcast, in partnership with iHeartRadio and Sleep Number, where she explained the mindset she’s developed that has allowed her to take failures and see them as opportunities to actually gain self-confidence.
According to Alba, gaining self-confidence all came down to listening to her own voice and maintaining perspective. In fact, she says keeping that context in mind can make a world of a difference when people tell you you’re not good enough: “Other people are just giving you their own reality and their own… perspective and their life experiences, but that doesn’t have to be yours.”
