How to stop care what others think about you.

   I always considered what people think about me! The sad part about this is that their opinions were really influencing me, my behavior and way of saying the truth. Admit, that it's so hard to not to give a sh*t, what people think about what you say, how good you are at the work or even how you look.

But few months ago I had a very interesting experience, that made me feel much peaceful and be happy with my own way of doing things without caring so much what people think about this.

   I have been walking on the street and saw a stranger who was staring at my shoes. I hope actually she liked them! But it was a weird feeling and my thoughts was all about this for the couple of seconds and then I was realizing, it's not my problem if she liked them or not! It's actually her problem if it wan't right for her! And this principle I started to apply for everything!

    If somebody don't like what I say - it's not my problem, it's their problem they have another point of  view or they can't find the right argument to convince me!
    If somebody don't like what I do - It's their problem they can't explain what they want me to do!
    If somebody don't like how I look- they may had a poor taste of beauty😀 I am kidding, it's just their problem they don't like it!
    And look, everything becomes so much easier. You make your problem of worrying to somebody's problem, because it's all about their opinions, feeling, preferences. And if It doesn't coincide with yours- it's not your problem!
    There is also a good joke about this principle of life:

"Abram shifts in the bed and can't asleep.
His wife- Sarah,-  asks:
-What's wrong, Abram? Why are you not sleeping?
- I owe 50$ to Jacob and I don't know how to return them.
Sarah opens the window and screams:
- Jacob!
From the other side of the street screams another voice:
"What, Sarah?"
- Abram owes you 50$?
-Yes, Sarah!
- So, he said that he will not give them back!
She closed the window and told Abram:
- You sleep,  now let Jacob doesn't sleep! "

So, in this little joke we see the same principle of  stopping to care and make life easily! Of course, you shouldn't go in extremes, but you've got how easy it this attitude works in daily life!

The habit of being thankful for people that make my life lighter and more successful!

It's super important to acknowledge people that contribute to your development and achievements! That is why I would like to thank people periodically for who am I today!

Jian Reza - is my teacher of Swedish courses. She is amazing, super energetic and very fair person! I feel our group very lucky that we have such a teacher, because It's super interesting to come for dynamic lessons (by the way, our lessons are almost half of the usual working day) and learn by discussing new concepts of Swedish society! She also sometimes organize our visits to museums or libraries and help new comers to integrate faster! I am very thankful for her energy, help to be included in society and her fair attitude to everybody!

Tetiana Siianko - is first person who believed in me and made me part of interesting project in Sweden "Startup Weekend", where I was able to connect with a lot of interesting people, mentors and super active young entrepreneurs. She is also an awesome example …

Thanking the ones, that bring the impact in my life!

Hey, periodically I write about people that I feel very thankful, because they contribute to who I am today! They make me feel happier and show me a better world and many interesting opportunities around! Saying this, I would like to  mention in this article:

1. Inna Gurinova - is one of my best friends from former colleagues, that was always super straight about things and honestly presented her point of view. She is an amazing mom and friend, ready to give you a hand of help, good advice and a doze of positive motivation! I always felt that Inna can come up with a strong opinion about things, having wise arguments behind it!  No matter how far we are now, I am always feeling very happy when we talk  or call each other!

2. Zanda Saulite - is my today's colleague from Swedish courses and neighbor. I like her critical mind and very sharp humor! Zanda always gives  supportive hints during our experience of studding new language, since she knows it quite better then me. She can als…

Trust in yourself is a habit!

Lots of people would be able to achieve better results in their daily life, if they trusted themselves! Unfortunately, in many cases we do not believe 100% that we can achieve what we want. Our thoughts stop us to succeed!
   The good news is that we can change this! Trusting yourself is a habit and could be developed through repetition! Since we feel unsure in 2 cases:
1) when we experience something for the first time, we deal with something unknown.
2) when we experienced something negative previously  and have to repeat similar experience.

For example, when you have to talk in front of the audience, your emotions defined by previous experiences. If you didn't had the supportive audience before - you will feel very insecure or even stressed. Have you ever noticed that people, that have been supported by their family in childhood, feels more self confident and sure when they talk about something or take actions? It's because they have positive experience and are not afra…
