As a child I was quiet and would keep to myselfÂ because of this I was perceived as being submissive and shy,Â I continued to beÂ this way thru ought my teenage yearsÂ up until I took part in the personal development industry.Â What’s interesting is how I developed to be that way.Â Because I was an introvert person my parents and family members referred to me as being shy. They, like most people, were not aware of the psychological affect words have on people.Â I then believed and accepted that I was a timid person.Â Â I later in life learned that I was trained and conditioned to be that way. I had the choice to continue to be an introvert person or make the instant change to be an extrovert.Â I immediately made changes that would help me evolve to the person I am today.
Since we are now adults, what do we do?
Where you are today is what you experienced in the last 5-10 years of your life. Where you will be in the next 5-10 years will be determined by what you do from now until then.Â Even if you see yourself as shy, dumb, not good enough, or whatever you were negatively conditioned as, you can break through this barrier. To transform who are you are today to who you want to be requires an enormous amount of energy. The first question I’d ask you before you make this change: how badly do you want it? Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Deliberately place yourself in uncomfortable situations and you’ll begin to grow and be stronger mentally. Always ask yourself, “is what I’m doing right now causing me to be uncomfortable?”
We, like any business, need to be continuously growing, because if we are not growing, then we are dying. The World is extremely fast paced and doesn’t wait for anyone. You either grow as quickly as you can to move ahead, or be left behind.
What are some things you can decide on right now that will cause you to be uncomfortable?
