The world has an infection that lies within their minds. I believe most people have an inferiority complex. Here’s why, they judge themselves based on others standards, do not trust their own decisions, and follow whatever group they find themselves in. Is this you?
How do you measure your self-worth, appearance, intelligence, etc?
Internally, by your own standards, by what makes you comfortable, not to impress? Or by what pop-culture, peer pressure, society dictates?
When making decisions, day-to-day, or big ones, do you listen to the loudest voice, the majority, or whatever your beliefs lay out? Or do you use your reasoning, looking at all sides, weighing the pros and cons, even asking someone who’s “been there, done that” successfully for advice?
When meeting people for the very first time, are you completely yourself, confident in your own skin, curious to meet new people but if nothing comes from it, that’s fine too? Or do you laugh at jokes that aren’t funny to you, agree with everything and try to fit in?
How you answer these questions will tell you where you stand with your true self. Is it a lie, a mask, going with the flow? Or is your action, words, what you see, is what you get? Or do you even know who you are?
The words you have read, or will read in this book, will show you how to not be arrogant, but comfortably confident, not a know-it-all but wise enough to know that you’re still learning, to not fit in for the sake of someone liking you, but to be yourself, and drawing people in with your honest self-assessment of yourself. We offer these lessons to you, from a point of experience, insecure, and unsure where we stood in the world, to the self-reliant, confident, and knowing where we stand with OURSELVES individually. It is up to you, to sift through the words, taking what fits, leaving what doesn’t. Thinking, questioning and questioning again, the conclusions you draw.
