3 Little-Known Benefits of Gratitude That Naturally Boost Confidence

[ad_1] That’s where it’s at, right? That effortless ease some others have. You know, they seem to glide through their day, deftly juggling all kinds of awkward  situations. Getting on. Getting ahead. Looking good. Doing great. But how do they do it? Because it can feel nigh on impossible sometimes to have that ease, that self-possession and  self-confidence. The kind that turns heads. How do they do that? It’s simple really. And it’s nothing to do with genes, natural intelligence or ability. They simply feel good… about themselves. Hold up. That’s sounds obvious, asinine even. I thought so too. Until I found my ease, my own self-possession and confidence. But I don’t know if you’re ready for the  answer. It...

If you want a genuine long-term fix for unhealthy behaviors, you have to change the underlying beliefs...
