We've all been there. Here's a trick: Don't say it out loud. Just pretend to be confident. Fake it till you make it. It's scary, but I promise you this: When it's over, you are going to say, "It wasn't as bad as I thought it was." Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will.

The point when you are just about to give up is the precise moment when the other guy gives up. At some point you are going to ask yourself, "Why am I doing this?" You better have an answer. What is driving you? Is it something someone said or did to you? Is it a competition?...

7. Rinse. Repeat.

There's an old Russian saying, povtorenie mat ucheniya, which means "repetition is the mother of learning."

The more you perform the same activity, the more confident you become. Confidence is a tangible thing--it comes from practice and repetition.

You are seeing your progress in real time. By nature, you are going to want to push the envelope to find out your boundaries. You will find yourself saying, "I wish it would suck more." It's our human nature to know what we are able to overcome.

1. Start.

The first step is always the most uncomfortable. All you have to do is show up. The battle is half won if you just show up. I get it. It's uncomfortable to start something.

Remind yourself that you made a decision. You are already committed and there is no going back.

Only Bad Dreams - Day 193

  • Many of the things that upset us are a product of the imagination, not reality. They are vivid and realistic at the time like dreams. We don't stop and say: "Does this make any sense?". No, we go along with it. The same goes with our flights of anger or fear or other extreme emotions.

This norm serves a great purpose in that bad ideas can be debated and debunked. However, it also kills a lot of good ideas as well.Β 

FIX: Stop yourself from first pointing out what's wrong in a situation, and make it a habit to jump to what's right instead.Β

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
