Being self conscious is something we all do at times. Maybe we’re not comfortable in certain situations, maybe the surroundings are a bit unfamiliar, maybe there’s just too many strong personalities in the room so we prefer to hide in our shell.
Whatever the reason, being self-conscious is rarely the best thing you can do.
So what can you do to boost your confidence and stop being so self conscious?
Ideas are everywhere but sometimes it seems they’re not in our own head, just everyone else’s.
Innovative ideas – sometimes also called lateral thinking or thinking outside the box or blue sky thinking – are great if you can come up with them as they can open up ways that you never thought possible.
But how can you come up with these fantastic ideas to solve that problem that’s been bugging you for longer than you care to admit?

Thinking positively is a skill most of us have to work on. We seem to find it easy to think negatively but when the time comes to be more positive, we go to pieces and reckon it’s too hard.
Like every other skill, it takes practice to retrain your brain (because that really is what you’re doing) to think more positive thoughts.
So let’s put together an action plan and help make the world a more positive place, one person at a time.
Money seems to have an almost unique ability to stress us out. Probably because the phrase “money makes the world go round” is so true.

Money also buys us our luxuries – whether it’s the small luxuries like a bar of chocolate or bigger luxuries like that shiny new phone or a meal out or a holiday.
It’s everywhere. Which is why we get stressed about money.
Unless you’re a seer like Nostradamus then you don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. Sure, we have a pretty good idea what’s going to happen to us in the upcoming minutes or hours – more of the same is the most likely outcome – but we never know for certain. Things happen unexpectedly.
But that’s not something we can control.
What we can control is the most likely things – and we can influence those and make a better future for ourselves in the process.

Have you ever thought why is it that you are really good at something, for instance maths, but really bad at sports? Or maybe why is it that someone can be a genius at school but when it comes to socialize and make friends this person gets frozen? Perhaps you have heard about the theory of multiple intelligences and how it expands the possible abilities and talents a person can possess.
According to De Boer (2015), “when whole brain thinking is activated multiple intelligence can be nourished”. But, what are we talking about when we refer to “Whole Brain Thinking”? As showed in the forementioned examples, the human being tends to prefer different ways of thinking and consequently, he/she tends to strengthen distinct skills. Here is where whole brain thinking appears to help people take advantage of the full available thinking.
