As I have been discussing video games for a while now, you’re probably thinking, ‘what makes you eligible to talk about this?’ Well, my past strongly involved video games too.
It was a large part of my life and even though there came a point where I decided to stop, I still learned a lot from that era of my life.
This is where I want to share how video games helped me.
As I have mentioned in a few other posts, I wanted to start a discussion about video games because it is a hobby that I know too well.
Arcades were a huge part of my life for years, and I had to make a decision at one point to either embrace the hold it had on me and sacrifice other areas of my life or, take a step back and enhance the skills I’d already developed in the arcades to better myself within the real world.
Last week I wanted to start a discussion on video games, and not just how they can negatively affect your real life, but the positive impact that gaming can have.
This week I want to start to answer the question of how you can use the positives of gaming to help you in other aspects of your life.
For the past few weeks, I have been going through the ins and outs of playing video games.
Now so far I have mentioned the negative impact that playing incessant video games can have on your day to day life, but this time I want to share the positive attributes of playing. And yes there are some…
Video games have become an extremely popular, and all-consuming hobby for some people. And I hear from many that they can feel like they can’t control the draw to play.
Many of us have had that experience with a game where you just cannot put it down.
Whether you want to be the next person to win Fortnite or you can’t get enough of Candy Crush, it’s a feeling all too familiar.
As a former gamer, I know too well that video games can have some kind of implication in your real life. This can either be in a good, or bad way, and I want to go through how and when you should start to consider changing your gaming habits.
Trust is a key part of not only having confidence but also general success and being happy. If you don’t have trust in yourself and in others, it can be pretty difficult to find success.
If you want to start gaining more trust, then I would like to offer my three steps to doing so.
As part of my series on confidence, the last part of this is trusting yourself.
In the past few weeks I have been covering confidence. Last time I discussed building self-esteem and how it is the foundation for building up your overall confidence.
Self esteem and confidence go hand-in-hand, so I would like to offer a very simple technique to improve on both.
The foundations of confidence is having the self esteem to know that you are good enough to try anything and that others’ opinion is just that, an opinion that you can overrule.
Without this self-esteem, it can make it much harder to bounce back and actually try something new when you are criticised or even questioned.
