How To Be Yourself Socially
by Peter Sacco
How does one go about being themselves socially? Is there some kind of norm for people to follow which states how you should behave in all situations?
Do you believe you have to act or react a certain way in order to be accepted by others?
Whatever happened to just “being yourself“?
Its funny how many people believe they need to act, dress or become a certain way to fit in socially. There is that saying that, “The clothes make the man!” I might buy into that a bit, however I would rather go with, “It’s who decides which clothes he is going to buy which will make him!”
Being who and what you are is all about thinking.
If you think it then you can become it. And this thinking is all about your attitude for choosing who and what you want to be. Really, it’s that simple yet so many people struggle to act like, or become something they are not just to impress others.
Well, now is the time to take control of the reigns of your life and become the person that you most want to be!
Are you ready?
You will only start to become what you want to be when you see yourself as that. This means visualizing the you that you want to be. Too many people act and become something they are not as they conform to the whims of others. Most of the time they act according to what others expect of them because they are afraid of hurting other peoples’ feelings, or letting them down.
Interestingly, when you do this you are actually letting yourself down and hurting your own feelings.
Furthermore, you are not being your true authentic self! It all begins with how you see yourself as who and what you are. When you do this you will become that as you are already that in your mind.
If you have always wanted to be more assertive, more outgoing, more successful in social situations, you need to first start visualizing the outcomes you want to happen. Spend 30 minutes each day, even two 15 minute time periods where you meditate and visualize on what you want.
Your thoughts trigger feelings and energy which create awesome experiences and images in advance.
When you have these images in advance along with the feelings, you are more likely to act that and become that in those similar situations. You might call it confidence for experiences you will have in advance. You send your confidence ahead of you!
How do you accomplish this visualization experience through meditation if you have a hard time staying focused for any period of time?
It is best to start out meditating for a few minutes at a time and seeing/feeling yourself as how you want to be in those situations. Self-hypnosis is a great way to help you relax and shift your mindset to the place you want it to go – confidence meditation.
Interestingly, if you try this for three weeks you will see tremendous results. They key is opening yourself up to this experience and trying it!
