I still remember when my friend John called me on a Sunday afternoon two years ago. He had an enthusiastic tone in his voice. “I want you to meet Marta, she is the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. Come to my place tomorrow at 6 p.m. and I’ll introduce you to her.”
He was clearly head over heels. In the beginning, I was slightly skeptical, as I thought it was the typical lustful ‘honeymoon period’ that was influencing him, but I was truly glad to hear him happy and I accepted the invitation.
Fast forward to today, they are…
Charming people. They always have an exciting story to tell, and they have that seemingly innate ability to make you feel at ease in their company.
It seems some people were simply born like that.
When they enter a room, everyone notices their presence. They are like magnets, and when they talk, everyone hangs on every single word coming out of their mouth.
Many of us often wonder how those people can have such a magnetic personality. Is there a secret formula? How did they become how they are? Were they just born like that?
The answer is, we are…
Four years ago, during a normal day at the office, my friend Sarah went to the kitchen and a nice guy approached her. She knew he liked her, as she had caught him staring at her a few times. He was nervous, and she could see it. So she did her best to make him feel at ease.
They had a short and pleasant conversation that afternoon, then chatted on Messenger for a few days, and after a week they went on their first date.
Fast forward to today, they are one of the coolest couples I’ve ever met.
There is a quote by Maxwell Maltz that perfectly explains how our level of confidence can influence every aspect of our life:
Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-brake on.
I don’t know about you, but I love this metaphor. There’s no better way to explain how a low level of self-confidence can significantly limit our potential — and consequently prevent us from living our life to the fullest. On the other hand, a healthy and high self-esteem can lead us to places we have never dreamed of.
Here are four strategies you can use to develop…
Many think desirability is determined by appearance, wealth, or power. Yes, some people might value those things, a lot. However, what usually sets desirable people apart is a combination of qualities that have nothing to do with the way they look or their status.
The most attractive traits of a person focus mostly on their personality and inner beauty. What follows are a few qualities highly desirable people have in common.
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.
Authenticity is one of the most powerful traits someone can have. Genuine people…
Most people think success depends on what we do, on how talented we are, or on our luck. While all these things can have an impact on our achievements, the reality is the foundation of our success is our mindset.
Our mindset — and our core beliefs — can make or break us.
What follows are four mental shifts you have to make if you truly want to succeed in life.
It’s normal to compare yourself to others from time to time. We all do it. It can be inspiring and it can push you to aim for more in…
We focus a lot on building morning routines that help us boost our energy and set the tone for the entire day. Many of us adopt healthy evening habits to sleep better as well. And it’s great.
However, we don’t talk enough about what we can do in the middle of the day to recharge our batteries and prevent stress.
The reality is, if you don’t use wisely your midday break, you might find it a bit challenging to be productive throughout the day — even if you adopted the best morning and evening routines in the world.
We all deserve it, right? However, it’s not always easy. In fact, as N.R. Hart said:
“Love can be wondrously complicated, it can be confusing, and it can be terrifying. But if it wasn’t all those things, then it isn’t love.”
Love is not something you find around the corner the day you wake up and decide you want it.
Sometimes you believe you have found the person of your dreams, only to realize months later they’re not the right person for you.
Sometimes instead, you see green flag after green flag, and over time you realize that maybe…
Some people are highly insecure. You can see it from the way they talk, from how they move, and even from their posture. Actually, some of them even say it out loud.
There are also people who from the outside look particularly confident — they take care of their appearance, dress elegant, speak and walk confidently — while the reality is they have a deep lack of self-esteem. Their insecurity is more subtle, because in order to see it, you have to look closer at them and how they behave.
Here are six qualities subtly insecure people tend to have…
It’s not always easy to understand if a guy likes you.
There are men who are extroverted and seem interested in a woman while they’re not — they’re just behaving like they do with everyone else.
Some men may be nice with a woman because they don’t want to hurt her feelings. Some other men, don’t have a clear idea of what they want so they may play hot and cold.
However, there are a few signs that can help you understand if a guy is genuinely into you. While going through this article remember this: one sign alone doesn’t…
