I left my 20s in 2016 and I’m writing this New Year’s Eve to tell you a bunch of things that will potentially save your life (because they saved mine). Let’s all Woo and Yay for an incredible 2017.
Not caring about what other people think is way easier said than felt. Why do we feel so bad when we get rejected anyway? Well, as I’ve come to realize, it’s actually programmed into our subconscious minds in very subtle ways at a very early age. This is what gives rise to what I call, “the divided self.”
We’re constantly being victimized by the beliefs, assumptions, and thought processes that have been hard-wired into our subconscious minds. If deep down you don’t want to do something bad enough, how can you change that? It’s a lot more simple than you think.
We’re all afraid of something. The funny thing about is that it’s rarely something that physically threatens our lives. Most of us are afraid of failure, disappointing other people, or losing control of certain situations. What do you believe to be true about your own fears?

You have beliefs that you don’t even know that you have. They’re wired into your subconscious, and you have no idea how much they influence the way you run your life. Let’s take a look at some of the ways they can actually work against you.
We all experience disappointment. Some of us are better at dealing with it than others, but that doesn’t mean that you’re doomed for a life of disappointment if you’re not one of them. Let’s take a look at where this strange emotion really comes from.
Confidence is a weird topic. But once we start to dig deeper into understanding why we’re not confident about certain things, we can work on those source problems to build up our confidence. Here are five ideas to get you started.
Stress is something that every human being on the planet undoubtedly has to deal with, and for some, it can get really bad. Little things stress them out all the time, every day. Are you one of them? Maybe it’s time to dissect your mind a bit to see what’s really going on.
Are you one of the many people who turns into a grinch from November until basically April? Do you realize how annoying you are when you become this type of person? If you want to become more likeable and feel less miserable during the winter months, you need to get a grip on your thinking.
