When you’re an introvert surrounded by extroverts

Why we shouldn’t force others to communicate like us.

This talk was spurred by a discussion I was in where one lady felt uncomfortable because someone an introverted person wouldn’t communicate like the other extroverts.

It’s my belief that when you feel uncomfortable with someone else’s personality, its 100% your responsibility/fault, not theirs.

We shouldn’t try and force people to adapt to our communication style.

Instead, we should accept people for who they are and be more understanding that not everyone is like us.

Just my 2 cents.

To Improve Your Life, Improve Your Friends

One of the most effective ways to improve the results you’re getting. Surround yourself with those who elevate you.

 

โ€œYou are the average of your 5 closest friendsโ€

This โ€œThought of the Dayโ€ centers around the idea of how the easiest way to predict our future is to look at who we choose to surround ourselves with.

Constantly find groups that will push you to become your better self.

Take on leadership positions to force yourself to take on new challenges.

Choose growth over comfort.

How do we find our purpose?

The other day, I was in a discussion group talking aboutย willpower and how someone would develop or increase it.

One of the guys in our group said:

“All you have to do is just find your purpose and do it. Then you’ll get more willpower.”

Me: “But how do you just ‘find your pupose?'”

I didn’t like that answer because it sounded easier said than done. I felt like saying that wouldn’t help anyone who wanted to find their purpose but didn’t know how.

Key idea: You find your purpose by trying different things and finding the intersection ofย what you’re good at andย what you enjoy doing.ย

How to Eat Less Junk Food

How I trained myself to eat less junk food.

Thought of the Dayย 

Key idea: training yourself to associate how you FEEL 10-15 minutes after you eat the food instead of associating the food with those feelings of instant gratification when you first take a bite.

Now, Iโ€™m not saying I donโ€™t eat junk food nor do I hate junk food. But my cravings and desire to eat them often has decreased significantly.
