Remain Positive. When life keeps kicking you in the nuts- you sell your own brand of peanut butter. I go nuts by starting a cemetery on fire. But I guess we all have our coping mechanisms.
Build Confidence. I like to think I’m really good at something without actually building the skill through experience. That way when I actually get around to doing it. I don’t realize how little effort I put into it. It’s hit and miss. Put your dues in and you’ll start building the right confidence because you’ll be experiencing the results.
Don’t over think it. My over thoughts usually lead to conspiracy theories. Yes, its the government-not my head so far up my ass I can hear the ocean. Make the changes- not relive the mistakes.
First Impressions are everything. I like to let myself go a couple of weeks before a big date or job interview. You know- not shave in a month, bath myself in cheap cologne for a week, eat lots of garlic and onions while smoking a pack of cigarettes and drinking some coffee. I show up wearing sweat pants with pizza stains and a sweat stained t-shirt. If they can tolerate me. I know I’ve found myself a keeper. But, don’t be like me by keeping everything you do professional.
Never give up. I wrote a book on giving up. I finished it about half way through. Don’t take the easy way out-people are drawn to perseverance.
Keep Trying. I practice insanityism. When something doesn’t try the first time- I repeat the pattern until I achieve my desired results. Don’t do that. Experiment until you achieve your desired results.
