If you’re a sensitive person, you’ve probably been taught that you’re too thin-skinned, emotional, or empathetic for your own good. And it’s a bad thing. More often than not, I was bothered by things much more than my siblings were and so naturally I was weird! And it’s taken me many years to stop feeling there was something wrong with me that needed fixing. Mind you, I’d never heard of the idea that some of us fall under the umbrella of being highly sensitive people or HSP’s. This is a term coined by the clinical psychologist Elaine Aron in 1991 to describe a personality trait that, according to Aron, is present in 15% to 30% of the U.S population. If you’ve found yourself more sensitive than others, I doubt you shouted it from the rooftops. Who wants to proclaim that they are weaker than the rest of society. Because that…

So many of us think we don’t have the skills or talents to achieve our goals and dreams. And yes, we have read tons of tips and books on the topic, but the problem is most of them are too challenging to adopt in our lives. But here’s the good news. Dharmesh Shah, the co-founder of HubSpot, believes that many people confuse talent and skill. According to him, while talent is something you are born with, skill is something anyone can learn with consistent practice. It makes sense to me. I used to sit next to a student with a mathematics talent. A subject I was hopeless at. So it took me longer to acquire the same skills that came to him so quickly. To make success more likely…

Self-worth is the fundamental belief that we are valuable, deserving, and worthy of love and respect. Boosting your self-worth is a significant aspect of overall well-being, confidence, and success. And let’s be honest; we all deal with insecurities and a lack of self-worth at different times. For instance even today, after all those years of musical success, Paul McCartney confesses that he also experiences anxieties and insecurities. So we’re in good company! While related to self-esteem and self-confidence, self-worth encompasses a broader sense of our inherent value. Therefore, cultivating self-worth is necessary because it lays the foundation for healthy relationships with ourselves and others. By recognizing our worth, we can set healthy boundaries, pursue our goals grow our confidence, and live fulfilling lives.
