Why am i so intimidating
much more powerful than we think, and the key to our happiness is to consistently remember that fact. How often do we give away our power by allowing our insecurities to create insane stories in our mind about other people?
I believe that in most cases, the feeling of intimidation has nothing to do with the person who intimidates us. How many people experience near-paralyzing fear and nervousness when they’re introduced to the CEO of their company (or any other high-profile person) because they believe that they’re not good enough to be communicating with her?
I'm a corporate trainer, incurable optimist, and writer who is committed to changing the world by helping as many people as possible to live and work more positively.
I'm talking about the woman that you dream of, finally find and chase down, but then are too afraid to date.
How many people have decided not to talk to the cute girl in the room because they’ve convinced themselves that girls like her would never consider talking to guys like them?
How many people avoid going to parties and social gatherings because they believe that everyone at the party is going to harshly judge them and/or not like them? The people who are intimidating you are not better than you. They poop and fart just like the rest of us (and it stinks too.) In fact, they’re probably just like you in more ways than you could ever imagine.
To call them a “hostile audience” wouldn’t even begin to describe these people. If that class happened 10 years ago, I would have run out of that room in tears and considered throwing myself off of the nearest bridge.
Not only were they intent on intimidating me, they were intent on making sure that I knew with every fiber of my being that I didn’t belong in the same room as them. Instead, during that class, I focused myself fully on delivering the information in the best way that I could.Since that day, I’ve trained thousands more people with fantastic results.
