In this week's show, Lan talks to specialist hair and beauty photographer, John Rawson, about the value of collaboration, why confidence is an essential component in success, and how to recognise your own gifts and talents. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes we find our calling in life because we naturally find certain tasks easy - we excel at something that others find difficult. The main ingredient in finding success is the confidence in ourselves that comes from knowing we can do a job well, as well as the trust we place in others. Our gifts thrive when we allow the gifts of others to thrive. We create wonders when we collaborate, and allow gifts to combine and spark. Never mistake confidence for aggression. True professionals recognise that talent manifests itself in confidence.
