Getting What You Want

I had two main goals in mind when I began this blog.  First, I wanted to help introverts that are not getting what they want out of life to better understand themselves and learn to use their gifts to feel happy and accepted.  And second, I wanted to help introverts who are happy with their lives to […]

Quiet Confidence

Lack of confidence can be either an introverted or an extroverted issue.  People often associate confidence with extroversion, but many introverts also have a great deal of confidence. Unfortunately, many introverts also experience a lack of confidence, particularly in social situations. As an introvert, I have struggled with confidence myself at various times in my […]

Greatness

I have a YouTube video playing in the background as I am sitting here at my computer.  It is on overcoming fear, an ongoing goal of mine.  I have overcome many fears in the past few years and I am making progress toward overcoming others. The video I’m watching is a compilation of great speeches […]

Here’s to the crazy ones…

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… […]
