Don’t Be Afraid to Look Stupid.

And this holds true especially when you’re trying to learn.

Someone may laugh at you, sure.
You’ll blush for a little while, sure.
You may seem stupid in the moment, why not.

But… are you, stupid?

You’ll get your question answered, your doubts cleared, and you even get the chance to approach whatever seemed daunting to you in a more lighthearted and confident way. That doesn’t seem stupid to me.

I think that “looking stupid” it’s the first step towards truly mastering yourself, or your craft. Do you think that important people throughout history were cherished and taken seriously from the get-go?

Fuck no.

If you were a random person, back in the past, would you have taken seriously the idea of the not-yet-affirmed Thomas Edison to put electricity, something thought abstract, into a bulb and then into everything? You’ll probably laugh at him and discard his idea as one of a fool.

But now, knowing what Edison has done…who would be the fool?

What i’m trying to say is not to take yourself too seriously.

Be open to mistakes, to be able to laugh at yourself without lingering on your embarrassing moments.

You’ll see that in this way you not only will give others the impression of someone who is approachable, humble & genuine – you’ll even find yourself be able to grow faster without the worry of stumbling over your failures.

You’re expected to make mistakes at the start, and even further down the line! – nobody is born knowing everything.

And as always,

Take care,

Visualizing As A Way to Prepare for Success

While i’m not a fan on relying completely on this method, (because, let’s be REAL for a moment-you need action to manifest things) taking the time to visualize the things you desire must not be underestimated, because like i said before-if coupled with RUTHLESS ACTION (am i sounding like Napoleon Hill yet?) you can be sure to be on the right path to manifest whatever!

Visualizing your goals, like: where are you going to live in a few years, your dream car, the job you want, the partner you seek, ecc.. can put yourself in that new mindset that is needed to attract those things, you’re preparing yourself and saying to your subconscious mind that you are “ready” for those things to happen, and as a byproduct you’re subconsciously starting to develop and gravitate towards the traits, habits or characteristics that a person who possess those things acts like! it’s not magic or wishful thinking.

Doing so can really give you that “what’s like to have that” feeling, that is so important especially when you’re going through hard times\challenges that can discourage you daily. You’re literally creating those situations in your mind so that you can see what it’s like to be there, what’s needed to actually get there (by calmly seeing how you would accomplish that in a relaxed state) and so that you can prepare for whatever challenges that might come with getting all of those things.

Just find a quiet place and if you’re already used to it, go in a meditative state- and if not, just close your eyes, breathe deeply and sit quietly while working towards those thoughts, and try to feel like you’re already where you want to be for an extended period of time, joyfully lose track of time and allow yourself to relax and see ,feel and enjoy the process along with what you’re visualizing, don’t hold back and go in much detail as possible.

You will find that by doing this daily you will automatically be more relaxed (as this is a sort of meditation too) centered and happy, as well as developing the things you need to get those dreamy stuff of yours-which are usually personality traits at the moment missing in your persona.

Try this out for a week or so, and let me know how you feel 🙂
