Plus! The #1 Sign Of Insecurity & How To Deal With A Bad Day (And Move On)!
When the word student comes up in conversation, I’m guessing you’re like me and find yourself thinking of someone who is learning. Whatever it is. Biology, dance, cooking, or economics. Well, learning need not be related to passing a class.
There’s so much growing that we as individuals should be striving for on a daily basis, you know?
So, to usher in today’s World Student Day (10/19)… I’d like to dedicate this week’s Snapshot to those of us who consider ourselves students of life. Always wanting to be better – in any way possible.
That is why each chat is committed to YOUR personal development! We’re talking: self-confidence, insecurity, and getting over a bad day! You’re going to finish this blog more motivated than you’ve been all week!
But! Before we get to that… I have question I’ve been dying to ask you:
Have you noticed a few big social media shifts lately? I don’t know about you, but it seems to me people aren’t on Facebook as much these days. And Instagram is feeling a bit stuck, too.
Before you throw in the towel, let me assure you… it’s a simple fix! Because I love you, I’ve put it all in a free 2-Part Instagram Growth Report and PDF.
Personal Development Chat – This Littler Girl Is My Hero | Is Self-Confidence Something You’re Born With?
There’s no question here, lifers… biological attributes and thinking patterns play a massive role in one’s self-esteem. Low or high. This might suggest that self-confidence is something we’re born with. Or have no control over.
But when you put in the work to unveil how your thoughts have developed, you learn that your behavior has been influenced – and continues to be influenced – by so many freakin’ factors. And that’s kind of exciting because, ultimately, we have the power to change.
You have a ton of options out there in the world that are guaranteed to raise your sense of self-confidence. Honestly, they’ve been around for eons:
- Regular exercise
- Healthy eating
- Positive thinking
- Consistent and good sleep
At the end of the day, self-confidence is a habit. And, like any habit, it can be taught.
This little girl in today’s headlining video, though. She makes me think twice about how much of our self confidence is actually pre-determined. I mean some people just have it flowing through them from birth, I tell ya! Check out this cutie and let me know – in the comments at the bottom of this blog – your 2 cents on the matter!
As mentioned above, self-confidence can definitely be taught! I’d be remiss if I didn’t take a moment here to mention Courageous Confidence Club! This course has been ranked at the top of personal development courses for years. To this minute, I’m so touched by the fact that every week dozens of new people sign up. If you’re looking for a little boost in the self-esteem department… you can check it out RIGHT HERE!
Personal Development Chat – The #1 Sign Of Insecurity
I’ll tell you a sure-fire way to know if someone is insecure. Ready? Okay! These people will hear (or experience) something that has nothing to do with them, apply it to themselves, AND THEN take huge offense.
“It is a fool who takes offense when it is intended, but it is an even greater fool who takes offense when it is not intended.” – Brigham Young
Listen, it’s so not attractive to be the guy or gal everyone feels the need to walk on eggshells around!
Speaking of which, you’re gonna die when you hear this story about this random guy who “introduced” himself to me at the airport. I’m curious to know what YOU think about our interaction. And I’m hoping there’s a lesson or 2 in this story, too…
Personal Development Chat – How To Deal With A Bad Day (And Move On)
Rhetorical question alert: Who hasn’t had crappy days full of stuff going wrong? That muscle tweak at the gym, 2 hours waiting at the dentist, headphones disappear, your boss announces a ridiculous new company policy, the internet is spotty when you need it most, and then you’re finally about to start making your famous guacamole for dinner… but realize you forgot just one minor ingredient – avocados. Oops.
Sometimes it’s just hard to stay motivated, happy, and productive during challenging days. Ya feel?
Look, I’m always keeping it real with you. And if you follow me on Snapchat, you know I keep it more real there than anywhere else. While my platform/image/reputation/teachings have so much to do with giving you the tools for living your best life… I want you to know that I’m human, you’re human, and some even say my dog, Maui, is human.
There is no such thing as being on your game EVERY day. If you have that expectation, you will not just fail, but you will also lead a very sad life. Let today’s final chat remind you that sometimes the only answer is to… just move on.
Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts in the comments! I’m always listening.
Have an amazing weekend! See you in a few…
