If you really want to live a great life, there are some things that you can do to help. First, make a space in your home where you can just go to and deal with any issue you’re facing in life. Whether it be a man cave, a theatre room, or a stress room, it is important to have a space where you can just unwind. Next, instead of comparing yourself to others, start making friends and networking to build yourself a support system. Finally, make sure you think before you act this way you are fully confident in your decisions in life.
- Discomfort is the byproduct of pursuing things that matter to you, so don’t try to avoid it completely.
- Understand that your critical inner thoughts are trying to help you.
- Quality relationships predict physical and emotional health, so reach out and make connections to others.
“Sometimes trying to change thoughts can be helpful (e.g., reviewing the evidence that most of my talks receive positive feedback), but the inner critic always finds something to latch on to—remember, it’s just doing its job, trying to be helpful.”
