Dilemma: You want to look like Bradley Cooper, but you don’t, and never will. You want to be richer, smarter, leaner, etc. Therefore, you shy away from taking chances at work, and feel somewhat inadequate with women. Sound familiar?
The good news is women don’t care as much about looks and money as you think. What they DO care about is confidence.
Confidence is a state of mind, and you EARN confidence by making small but significant changes in your life.
Building confidence starts with improving yourself:
Step 1: Do 20 push-ups every morning, immediately after getting out of bed. Then, do 50 sit-ups. Do this DAILY, even if you already workout.
Step 2: Learn something new each day. This can be anything—read the news, watch a documentary, visit a museum, research turtles or penguins or sharks…it doesn’t matter…just learn something! If you devote half the time you spend on facebook to learning new, interesting things about the world, your knowledge will increase exponentially.
Step 3: Save more money. If you can’t save more money with your current income, get creative with other (legal and ethical) ways to make extra cash outside your main job. There are all types of ways to make money from home: sell items on craigslist/ebay, work on Amazon mechanical turks, start a successful blog. You can even go old school with a side business—mow lawns on the weekends or even have a lemonade stand:)
Step 4: Become more spiritually active. Even the most avid atheists can enjoy spiritual peace. Celebrate whatever higher power you believe in, even if it’s mother earth. Appreciate the color of the sky, the magnificence of the stars, the wonder of the oceans. Be aware of the world you live in, and be grateful. Your time is limited, after all.
