Dr. Rumeet Billan and Face2Face host David Peck talk about her new bestselling book Who Do I Want to Become, Tall Poppy Syndrome, psychological capital, self-confidence, stress and tolerance and why we need to be comfortable in our own skin.
Who Do I Want To Become? It’s a book for anyone, of any age, who has been stumped by the question of what they’re going to be when they grow up.
A class project is due, and Dylan is struggling with the question: What do you want to be when you grow up? Ultimately, he realizes that it’s who you are that matters the most.
