I think I am an insecure person.
Why do I think this?
I recently read an article that said that insecure people will avoid personal interactions. They will avoid situations they cannot control or feel like they are in control of.
I don’t avoid anything. Far from it. I enjoy robust discusssions. I enjoy seeing how far people can push themselves mentally and physically to overcome perceived and immediate problems.
I enjoy challenges.
However, I cannot stand whining. Holy shit. Nagging whinging people who fail to plan, think or review their work. They message or phone and ask obvious questions, obvious or logical to those who actually read and thought about what they were asked to do.
It feels like people are abdicating their own voice for fear of standing out. Everyone is just trying to blend in to the noise, except for the narcissists who love social media.
The ultimate endorphin hit. Just one more post/like/comment/whatever.
Give me strength in all that I do and to become the person that I know I can be.
Everyday in every way I grow stronger and stronger.
I know this sounds corny but I like reading this to remind myself to watch what I think.
First. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Definite Purpose in life, therefore, I DEMAND of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.
Second. I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality, therefore, I will concentrate my thoughts for thirty minutes daily, upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture of that person.
Third. I know through the principle of auto-suggestion, any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it, therefore, I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of SELF-CONFIDENCE.
Fourth. I have clearly written down a description of my DEFINITE CHIEF AIM in life, and I will never stop trying, until I shall have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.
Fifth. I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure, unless built upon truth and justice, therefore, I will engage in no transaction which does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me, because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness, and cynicism, by developing love for all humanity, because I know that a negative attitude toward others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself.
