Top Mistakes Part 6

I’m almost done. Top mistakes #16-18 are below.

Mistake 16: I Was Afraid Of My Gut Feeling

I was a person afraid of guessing throughout my teens and twenties. I was a fact thinking person. I either knew it or I did nothing. I didn’t think with my gut feeling. I didn’t attempt to solve problems or find a solution with my intuition. I was afraid to be wrong. I memorized facts throughout school and my past jobs. Memorizing facts can be good. Sometimes, I just don’t know it and I must do something at the moment.

The lesson I learned is trust my gut feeling. My intuition is above average. I realized some of my problems have been solved using my intuition. There were difficult moments I solved without thinking. I just do it and the problem was solved. Trust my intuition. Don’t think, just do it. I’m a person who, sometimes, doesn’t need training. I’m better off just doing it.

Mistake 17: This Was Not Funny

Most people have a sense of humor. Most people communicate their funny side in their own ways. My verbal humor is dry, slow, and positive. My ha, ha or laugh out loud humor is terrible—which can be good at the perfect moment. I admit my comedian funny skills don’t come natural compared to others. I never stop speaking my funny side even when I’m the worse among my circles of friends. I never stop even when I say stupid jokes. There is always improvement.

I want to be an example who communicates their funny side better in writing. I believe I’m funnier when I write my jokes; for instance, playing board games such as Balderdash. My sense of humor is better when I write in my blogs. Communicate your sense of humor in the best way whether it’s talking, writing, or even a video blog.

I can apply mistake #16 to mistake #17. I have been funny when I say something without thinking. I speak the words and sentences so funny everyone else laughs and I don’t realize what I said.

Mistake 18: Nobody Recognizes Me

I consider my handsome beauty average. I still have blackheads on my face. I considered my looks below average before 2009 because my smile was terrible and my face experienced acne. I wore braces from January 2007 to August 2009 to improve my smile and I took Accutane from February 2009 to February 2010 to significantly reduce my acne outbreaks.

I was a person nobody recognized me by my face. I looked at myself saying, “Who wants to be with me? Who wants to be with an ugly person?” People recognized my face for the wrong reasons: naive, unsocialable, and a person with no life.

The lesson I learned is trust my face and trust my looks. I have a distinct and unique face. People recognize my face when I walk around areas I frequently occupy. I received feedback my face is really distinct and unique. However, it’s more than people recognizing my face. I don’t look as handsome as Brad Pitt or George Clooney. My face portrays my personality, my confidence, my friendliness, and being a good guy. I want people to recognize my distinct and unique face and associate me as a person who’s easygoing, friendly, talkative, active, smiling, and a “there he is” person. I want to be a person who is a “you should meet this guy” man.
