10 Simple Truths Smart People Forget

10 Simple Truths Smart People Forget | Happiness Project | Scoop.it
Some of the smartest people I know continuously struggle to get ahead because they forget to address a few simple truths that collectively govern our potential to make progress. So here’s a quick reminder:

 

#1 – Education and intelligence accomplish nothing without action.
It doesn’t matter if you have a genius IQ and a PhD in Quantum Physics, you can’t change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. There’s a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. It’s as simple as that. For some practical guidance on taking action, I highly recommend The Now Habit.

 

#2 – Happiness and success are two different things.
I know an extremely savvy businesswoman who made almost a million dollars online last year. Every entrepreneur I know considers her to be wildly successful. But guess what? A few days ago, out of the blue, she told me that she’s depressed...

7 Smart Ways to Build Self Confidence

7 Smart Ways to Build Self Confidence | Happiness Project | Scoop.it

“Your perception of yourself has an enormous impact on how others perceive you.” – Erin Falconer of Pick the Brain.


“If you really put a small value upon yourself, rest assured that the world will not raise your price.” ~Author Unknown

 

I believe the best way to build self confidence is by broadening your life experiences. When you work hard to increase your knowledge, skills and experiences, you’ll automatically become a confident person.

 

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. ~Anaïs Nin, Diary, 1969

 

As you constantly increasing your exposure to life, you’ll build your confidence in mastering or doing anything.

 

Confidence is something that you have to workout like a muscle.

 

You can’t be confident at everything. We all lack confidence in some areas of life that we are not familiar with.

Thank you for posting this article, it really helped with my topic! I can make use of the line "Recognize that persecution is irrelevant, since you (and only you) control the outcome of your life. Every person has a stack of obstacles placed before him; success hinges upon your ability to overcome the obstacles in your path, persecution or no."
