Jenny's 30 Days Challange

Confidence – by Jenny Verano

An Inspiration for Setting Your Daily Priorities

to increase your confidence

An interview with Jenny Verano

 

Klaus: “Dear Jenny,

I did learn from you, that you found a wonderful way to increase your confidence. What are you doing to train it?”

Confidence - Jenny Verano's trainingJenny Verano: “Every day I consciously do things that give me some sort of satisfaction and can be considered as achievements, even if they are only very small. It could be doing something that I have been procrastinating but needs to be done anyway. And, of course, there are always major things to get done. It is important to do those first if possible.”

Klaus: ” Yes, most of the time we get interrupted by the urgent duties. Why do you do it in this way?”

Jenny Verano: “I believe that

progress = happiness,

so I ensure I am making progress every single day. When I make progress, I feel happy and want to set more goals to continue growing. Real goals are not about getting things but about becoming something and growing because of it. Then

growth=progress

and the cycle repeats.”

Klaus: “Which tools are you using?”

Jenny Verano: “One of the tools I can think of right now is to decide, out of everything I want to do, what are the one or two things that, if I do them, I will feel like I have had a productive day, and do them first, if possible.

Another tool is to

transform my shoulds into musts.

Building Confidence - Interview with Jenny VeranoJenny Verano: “I learn and apply the knowledge to my own life as well as in helping others to improve the quality of their existence. Today I learned about the manipulations of the ego and how it can affect my relationship with the people I love. Now that I have that awareness I can change my behavior, control my emotions and reactions, so in return I will get better responses from those around me and improve our relationship.”

Instead of saying I should workout I say: I must workout because it gives me loads of energy because

  • my day will be more pleasant, 
  • and I will be more comfortable in my skin and clothes,
  • on top of that, I inspire others around me, to be more active and healthier.

I can go on and on with reasons why I must workout until I am ready to leave the house. Funny enough I have noticed that initially, I do not need to feel motivated to do the actual workout, I just need to find the motivation to get to the gym. Once I am there, well, there is nothing else to do and there are a lot of people making it look so easy!”

Klaus: “Thank you so much for sharing this technique and your experience with us! Even if the daily successes are only small. The compounding effect will create a huge breakthrough after a time! It is said, that Einstein called compounding the 8th of the earth. I guess you are looking forward to the result and enjoy the progress along the way.

Because this builds confidence to create the life you are dreaming of.”

Safety Third

Safety Third

Training Your Risk Tolerance

Other than advertisers tell us: you can’t buy security!

Two of the basic needs God gave us are security (certainty = safety first) and adventure (uncertainty = safety third). She must have a strange kind of humor 🙂 because they are driving us in two opposite directions along the same track!

Safety third: Volcano Yasur 🌋 on Tanna island, Vanuatu

The fallacy of “safety first” thinking 🤔

Safety first is a good concept for civil aviation, because there is no option to stop along the way on the sidewalk, what you would probably do if your car makes some funny noise, and have a look at, what is wrong with your vehicle.

Safety 3dr: Before Skydive

But if we constantly want to improve our security, by closing insurance contracts for everything that could go wrong, putting pillows everywhere around ourselves, avoiding anything that might be risky, we might expect a pretty calm life. But we start dying inside, due to the boredom that takes over in our life. Most people live like that, and they get really unhappy. Even though their life is so protected, and they don’t even know why they are unsatisfied. Always being concerned about security, makes even stronger your fear of the danger that is awaiting you behind every corner. Plus it limits your growth!

 

Safety third: Skydiving from 4,000 m with 1 minute of free fall

Those who go the other way, who are willing to take (calculate-able) risks, keep training their mind to handle risks and fear better. Their self-confidence grows, so they believe that they are able to solve any problem that might appear.

Safety 3rd: Between tandem jumps

And by the end of the day, those people get to experience more security in their life. Living with a mindset like that, they fulfill both of their basic needs: uncertainty and certainty. But always remember: Uncertainty comes first!

Safety third: after the second tandem jump

This brings me to the bottom line:

The bigger your risk tolerance is,
the more certainty you will experience in your life!

Safety third: pole jump

And once again, there is no ultimate stage, in which you will experience the ultimate feeling of absolute certainty. But you are able to have a lot of pleasure along the way, like those runners still having about 35 km ahead of them until the finish line 🏁

Enjoy your journey of never lasting growth and have a lot of fun along the way!

What is the next challenge you are going for, to increase the size of your comfort zone?

Or would you rather go for a smaller version?
