This article, ‘Mindy Kaling’s Guide to Killer Confidence’ has made the rounds on the internet this weekend. I clicked through, thinking that it would be a bit of a sugar-coated snooze fest like I’ve heard from her in the past, but I was wrong.
She actually addressed the fact that she’s been a bit trite in the past with her answers to ‘why are you so confident?’ and then proceeded to answer the question with the grit and power that you’d expect from a woman as successful as Kaling.
It’s nothing new to be told that you have to work hard to be successful, but I liked that she encouraged women to actually believe that they deserved success once they put in the work. I can easily forget to do this, so I took it as a very timely reminder.
Cheers to Mindy and her new book, launching Sept 15. Will you watch the next season of her show on Hulu?
