Radical Self Confidence

Self-confidence is a must for all of us- no matter which stage of our life journey we are in.

It doesn’t matter what our role looks like:

  • Whether we’ve lost ourselves in career or business

  • Whether we’re feeling lonely post-breakup or just lonely in a crowd or enjoying our solitude and the feelings of Quietude.

  • Whether we’re speaking on a stage or whispering our secret to a friend for the very first time

  • Whether our business came crashing and we are on the threshold of bankruptcy suddenly.

  • Whether our Revenue sources have dried and all our efforts to bring the derailed business back – fail due to lack of interest, apathy or our mental STATE.

  • We shall need radical self-confidence.

  1. Much of this sounds like saying “Close But No Cigar”

    Meaning: 

    Coming close to a successful outcome only to fall short at the end, we see our miserable situation while negatively imagining that others have no sympathy and they are laughing at us. 

    We shall Radical Self-Confidence to overcome the situation.

  2. We will have no choice but to “Go Out On a Limb”

    Meaning: 

    Putting ourselves in a risky situation in order to help somebody, or to hazard a guess about what could be the best possible way out of this jam.

We shall Need Radical Self-Confidence to over come the situation.

Picturesque Moscow

A Short Story
by me

Charity Godfrey was thinking about Wenna Thornton again. Wenna was a cowardly friend with slimy legs and moist thighs.

Charity walked over to the window and reflected on her idyllic surroundings. She had always hated picturesque Moscow with its vacant, vigorous volcanoes. It was a place that encouraged her tendency to feel sad.

Then she saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the a cowardly figure of Wenna Thornton.

Charity gulped. She glanced at her own reflection. She was a cold-blooded, rude, whiskey drinker with beautiful legs and fragile thighs. Her friends saw her as a panicky, pickled patient. Once, she had even saved a colossal old man that was stuck in a drain.

But not even a cold-blooded person who had once saved a colossal old man that was stuck in a drain, was prepared for what Wenna had in store today.

The sun shone like thinking goldfish, making Charity delighted. Charity grabbed a cursed sandwich that had been strewn nearby; she massaged it with her fingers.

As Charity stepped outside and Wenna came closer, she could see the oily smile on her face.

Wenna gazed with the affection of 7074 violent mute monkeys. She said, in hushed tones, “I love you and I want less communication.”

Charity looked back, even more delighted and still fingering the cursed sandwich. “Wenna, what a spiffing dress,” she replied.

They looked at each other with concerned feelings, like two sleepy, sparkling snakes loving at a very mean accident, which had jazz music playing in the background and two tactless uncles talking to the beat.

Charity studied Wenna’s slimy legs and moist thighs. Eventually, she took a deep breath. “I’m sorry,” began Charity in apologetic tones, “but I don’t feel the same way, and I never will. I just don’t love you Wenna.”

Wenna looked relaxed, her emotions raw like a motionless, mammoth map.

Charity could actually hear Wenna’s emotions shatter into 9900 pieces. Then the cowardly friend hurried away into the distance.

Not even a glass of whiskey would calm Charity’s nerves tonight.

THE END

Influence and Impact

  1. We become what we expose ourselves to.
  2. We become who we hang out with,
  3. who we listen to,
  4. the shows we watch,
  5. the books we read, etc.

 

We have to be sensible about what we expose ourselves to and about how much time we spend in the company of those influences.

And we must seek out more alone time for ourselves, in quietude and close to nature. If we don’t do this, we’ll lose ourselves. We’ll become other people and lose our peace.
