Figure out your needs

People tend to feel badly about themselves when they feel powerless to get their needs met. 

Clarify for yourself what you need and don't expect others to fulfill your every want. What people, places, or experiences are must-haves to live a fulfilling life? What aspects of your life—if removed—would leave you without a sense of purpose?

Live authentically

Standing up for yourself and living a life that is authentically yours generates positive self-views.

You have to start thinking about how you will communicate your needs, how you will start creating a life that meets your needs, and what you will do if people in your life can’t meet those needs.

Forgive yourself

Almost everyone has said something hurtful, forgotten an important event, or betrayed someone they love.

We have to remember that our mistakes do not define us. If we learn and grow from them, then they make us better people. Forgive yourself, and give yourself credit for trying not to make the same mistakes again.

Celebrate your quirks

Instead of focusing on all the things wrong with us, self-celebration enables us to derive deep satisfaction from being uniquely us. 

Practice self-celebration by enjoying your awkward laugh or poking fun at your inability to remember people’s names.

Hardwiring for Personal Connection

As human beings, we crave love and connection with others. As scientific research shows, social connection and relationships are essential human needs that improve our physical health and mental and emotional well-being.

We feel personal connection when we have shared experiences, relatable feelings, or similar beliefs or opinions. It is when there is a sense of “oneness” and belonging to something greater than ourselves.

Workplace Anxiety

It happens when you feel restless and stuck, and you have a sense of vague fear which leads to unproductiveness. It is an existential feeling that is hard to articulate. A constant sense of 'fight or flight' running inside your mind. To tackle this problem:

  • Recognizing and identifying the feeling.
  • Developing the courage to make meaningful changes.
