The first step in improving your self esteem has to be within. You must be determined to improve this situation and be willing to take the steps necessary to begin improving this situation. You must also accept the fact that self-esteem is something that CAN be raised intentionally.
What we try not to do is to just simply do karaoke. But we do spend a considerable amount of time on material. I love music and I love song, so the most difficult thing is I have about 30,000 songs that I go through to try to find … It’s insane. I make myself crazy.
A person with low self esteem will be looking for negative signs in an event, conversation, or activity. Since they are expecting outcomes to be negative, if they cannot see a real negative item, they will either invent one or interpret a positive one as a negative. As an n example, think about someone who believes that I am about to hit them. I may see that they are about to be hit by a bus, and grab for them to pull them to safety. They may see my sudden move as an attack because they are already thinking that that is what they must expect from me. They may jerk away and be hit by the bus because they were already predisposed to interpret what I did in a certain way.
Learn to read people. Pay close attention to how the other players react to their cards, what they do, and what their cards are if they end up showing. This is the hardest and most effective skill you can learn in hiking. Other than luck, which is completely out of your control, reading people will greatly improve your game.
Decide to make the change. Write down all the negative things that are true about you. Don’t write down the negative things you THINK about yourself. Write down what is true. Don’t say, “People don’t like me.” That’s what you think. Write down, “I insult people when I see them.” That is a fact.
The best thing you can learn about bluffing is when to not bluff. If you are unsure about the situation and your “gut” tells you that you shouldn’t, then just don’t bluff. Only bluff when you are completely sure you have a good chance of coming out on top.
