How To Work A Room – Book Review
Do you feel uncomfortable in social situations or at networking events? If so, it might be worth taking the time to read ‘How To Work a Room’ by Susan Roanne. It’s a classic in the field of social skills and interpersonal communications. In this book review, I share some of the key ideas that have helped me feel more comfortable meeting people and connecting in groups.
Starting Over at Age 30
Starting over in your 30s is possible. In fact, it’s easier than you think. Just because you’re not happy with your life at 30 doesn’t mean you need to suffer for the rest of your life. Starting over at 30 means letting go of some things, and taking some risks, but the rewards are worth it.
Why You Feel Self Conscious
Why you feel self conscious is a mystery to most people. It’s hard to understand why you feel so worried what people think all the time. Most people are much more focused on themselves than they are on anything you are doing or saying.
The True Cost of Ambitions
Someone once said ‘the true cost of ambition is loneliness’. I believe that whenever we have ambitions we have to risk the criticism and negativity of people around us who don’t share our goals and dreams. In this video I explore the true cost of ambition and how we can still achieve our goals despite what other people think.
Should You Share Your Goals with Others?
Should you share your goals with others? Should you tell other people your goals and plans in life? There are lot of videos out there that say that you should not share your goals with others. But I think sometimes you SHOULD share your goals with the right people.
How to Get Over Negative Emotions
If you are struggling to deal with negative emotions, you are not alone. One of the toughest things in life is to control your emotions when you are feeling frustrated, disappointed, angry, upset, depressed, or dejected. Even at the age of 44, I still find it hard to overcome negative emotions and negative feelings at times.
How to Be Kind and Strong
Can you be kind and strong with people in your life? Yes, I believe it is possible if you have the right mindset and approach. There is a lot of information out there about how to be a kind person, but not a lot about having good boundaries and not getting taken advantage of when being too nice or too kind.
The Mire of Making Meaning
Making too much meaning is a real trap we all face. If you are a person who likes self improvement and personal development, then you are likely falling into the trap of making meaning. Choosing the wrong meaning for ourselves, or our lives means we are stuck. We are trapped behind a filter of our own creation.
Accepting Your Flaws and Moving Forward
Accepting your flaws is a tough thing to get a handle on no matter who you are. Everybody has flaws and things that they don’t like about themselves. Whether they are physical flaws, emotional flaws, or mental flaws, all of us start behind others in some way. The sooner we learn to accept our flaws, the easier and more enjoyable life becomes.
