Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, July 21, 2013 11:02 AM

http://blogs.psychcentral.com/positive-psychology/2011/05/how-positive-writing-can-increase-life-satisfaction/


Alexandra Real's curator insight, February 6, 4:47 AM

Writing is much more than having to sit at a desk with the keys of your computer at your fingertips waiting for that English essay to arise. It's a way to communicate with others, way of expressing thoughts, ideas, and beliefs, and as mentioned in this article, a way of coping with trauma. Writing can be used as a tool to help individuals have greater life-satisfaction by writing down the positive aspects of their life and being thankful/grateful. Even if one already feel a sense of purpose and satisfaction in their life, I say this helps as a way to become aware and mindful of positive experiences in our lives.

7 Smart Ways to Build Self Confidence

7 Smart Ways to Build Self Confidence | The Good Life | 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.
