Cautious, solitary, intuitive, creative, passionate… Those are just some words that are synonymous of being considered “sensitive” in society today. And if you identify as a sensitive person, then you’re going to want to read this.
I’m going to share with you how to feel less anxious about the daily pressures that are put on you, and why you can feel more confident about your unique, and frankly quite beautiful nature (in my humble opinion).
This might be more relevant to those of you currently going through it, though prevention is never lost either. I’m going to show you one way out of the pain you might currently be in, and what you can do to salvage your taste for daily activities, over time.
Happiness is probably one of the all time vaguest concepts.. It’s very subjective, or at seems that way. It seems like what makes me happy isn’t necessarily what would make you or someone else happy. And researchers like Martin Seligman and Shawn Achor have certainly confirmed that through their work on positive psychology and happiness, respectively.
I want to talk about what we do know for sure on what it means to be happy. And what friends you consider “happy” might know that most of us overlook or seem to forget all too easily. 🙂
Ever had that “meh” feeling when someone compliments you? Like your accomplishments are somehow “dirty” or “fake”?
I was reading Learned Optimism by Dr Martin Seligman. The book made me realize that this feeling comes from how we explain our failures and successes to ourselves.
This tends to hinders our ability to continue doing great work, and I want to share how you can deal with this feeling.
I was on the phone with my mom the other day, telling her about certain habits I had adopted and how easy it had been to make change. How I live healthier than I used to, work smarter than I used to, and certainly feel a lot better than I used to.
This conversation really reminded me how easy changes can be once you’re motivated to make them. Like once you know exactly why it’s important to you, and what to do moving forward.
Today I want to talk about the process of making those changes. What you can do to prepare yourself, and how you can avoid losing momentum as you’re trying to improve your life.
You know the type: Multiple choice, and not a clear winner. 🙂 I got this neat little trick while reading some Tony Robbins and let’s just say it will make all sorts of deliberations much easier for you.
So you’ve decided you’re going to make an improvement: Learn a new skill, get in shape, create better habits..etc
Listen, I want you to make this happen. And I also want this to be no longer and more frustrating than it needs to be. With the right attitude, you will save yourself a ton of time when trying to make an improvement in your life.
So if you tend to value yourself based on your accomplishments, this could be an important insight for you to have.
