Now that is the one of the first candidates for the most arrogant post on my blog.
And, you know, it is very likely true.
I, like probably many of you reading this, have a huge fear of being this douchebag talking about himself all the time.
It is hard to accept the fact, that no matter how hard I try, I will still be arrogant from time to time.
However, I think you need to do that, and quite often.
Be arrogant and selfish enough to give credit, gratitude, acknowledgement to yourself for all the things you have in life.
After all, the only person that matters the most in your life, the person who stays with you until the last breath – is yourself.
That is the only relationship you actually NEED to make perfect. All others are but a bonus on top.
This page will be a good place for my self-indulgence. For understanding that I, even in my current unfinished state, have some things I can be proud of or things someone can like in me.
Now, to steer it just a bit more into the “giving value” side.
I encourage you to come up with “50 Things That Are Likeable About Yourself” too.
You can use mine as reference (of course that is a shameless plug to get you to read what is good about me) or ignore me entirely and do it on your own.
I also want to give credit to Andy from KYIL, who is the origin (here’s his video about it) of this idea for me.
I will return to this list often. Rereading it. Updating it with new things, when they come up to mind.
I advise you to do the same with yours.
Now, let’s get this self-indulgence started:
