Maisie Williams: Be Your Own Hero

Update: 2019-04-15


The relationship you have with yourself is the most important.

If you’re constantly putting yourself down and judging yourself, eventually you’re going to self-destruct.

It’s common to self-sabotage when things are going well. It can happen to anyone- it doesn’t matter how successful you are.

We feel anxious. We feel like a fraud. We might even feel like we don’t deserve it.

But once you get to the root of those feelings, you can heal the judgments you have of yourself.

On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk with one of the biggest television stars on the planet about anxiety: Maisie Williams.

Maisie Williams is an actress known for playing Arya Stark in Game of Thrones. She won the EWwy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, the Portal Award for Best Supporting Actress – Television and Best Young Actor, and the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor. In 2016, she was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Maisie was at the height of her fame and success but still felt worthless. She realized that there wasn’t anything outside of herself that could make her happy.

She had to find her self-worth from the inside.
