It says it all in the title: An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory. Every time you do something you do something you learn. If there is something that you want to get good at, the more that you do it the better that you would get at it.
When out and about, what would make you smile? What would make you laugh? What would you enjoy. Confidence is bullshit, it is about not giving a damn. If you get a good result great, if you get a bad result, great. No matter what happens, no matter what the out come, it is about knowing that you can deal with it.
Charisma – it is just communicating with emotion. Raise an emotion and you have charisma. It does not matter what the emotion is, as long as there is an emotion.
Who are we - what ever belief that we have needs evidence to back it up. How do you know that you are awesome? You have to create the evidence for yourself by interpreting what happens in the world as it happens.
You are your own best teacher - by teaching and learning yourself you become congruent with it. The stuff you find out through the problems that you encounter, you own that knowledge, you really do. All the play that you ever do you learn from it and you grow from it. Anxiety does occur, but rather than try and blast through it, revel in it. Enjoy it. Accept it. Increase it if you want!
The people that are self amused that have the most fun - The fear is looking like a crazy. If I slide down banisters, if I act like a kid again, if I am playful, if I start enjoying myself, what are other people going to think? It doesn’t matter what other people think, what ever anyone thinks is bullshit, it is what you think.
