Plus, Evan Carmichael presents Martha Stewart's Top 10 Rules for Success and Marie Forleo and Colleen Sandman engage in an inspirational talk that affirms, yes, you have what it takes and you are enough. Now get out there and do it.

How to Deal with Anxiety

Brendon Burchard has a refreshing take on how to deal with anxiety. Whether it's worries surrounding your business or unease in social situations, he suggests that an effective course of action is to develop your strengths and confidence to such a degree that you stop experiencing as much anxiety. We'll never be able to completely squash our insecurities ("If you don't have them, the game is over," Burchard says), but we have the power to improve ourselves, increase our confidence, and at least loosen the grip of anxiety in our lives. It's an empowering thought.

Former NYTimes Executive Editor Jill Abramson on Resilience in Leadership

Another great View from the Top talk from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. This 50-minute conversation features former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson discussing a variety of topics, including facing challenges and rejection and the importance of resilience in leadership. Abramson says, "You have to be pretty forthright and kinda kick ass if you want to enact change."

Martha Stewart's Top 10 Rules for Success

Another one in Evan Carmichael's motivational "Top 10 Rules for Success" video series highlighting the philosophies of successful leaders and entrepreneurs. This one focuses on the "first female self-made billionaire in the U.S." Martha Stewart's rules for success include "Obstacles can be solved," "Learn something new every day," and "Be your own customer." That last one especially is a wonderful tip that more businesses would be wise to abide by.

Bill Goss: The Single Biggest Reason Why Startups Succeed

From his TED Talk, serial entrepreneur and Idealab founder Bill Goss asks the question, "What factors matter most for company success?" Based on data he gathered from hundreds of businesses, he ranked each startup on five key elements—Ideas, Team, Business Model, Funding, and Timing. Which one do you think he concluded was the most important element? The answer may surprise you.
