How to be intimidating
What advice would you give a friend who is in the same situation? Yes, it’s directed at you (or feels that way), but this is an intimidator who likes to prey on people. He is an Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, University Professor and the Best-Selling Author of The Camino Within.
You can do this by thinking of things that are boring yet calming: Washing a dish. Next, tilt your head downward, so your eyebrows look nice and V-like, like the 😠 emoji but without the frown. Now just stand there peacefully, looking like a goddamn leader. You also have no problem standing up for what you believe in. You look directly in their eyes while speak to them and you know exactly what you’re talking about. They want you to be a sheep just like them and follow. When we live outside of the box or the “norm” people will stare and point fingers and maybe even gasp. Many of us are afraid of what we don’t understand and we are also slightly afraid, or should I say borderline jealous, of people who don’t conform. There are going to be the few select that will snub you because they feel inferior or jealous (ha! Some people are really afraid and intimidated by super self confident people. This is also one of the characteristics of a leader and people don’t want you to be a leader. Not everyone is going to think you’re awesome because of that. A simple, small and lovely way to say “Thank you Iva”!! People around town see this and say, “Look at this stupid man. Most of us, when feeling stuck in a difficult situation, can only ever think about the situation itself. In fact, it’s your responsibility to speak up and to contact authorities if need be. I know it’s scary, but it’s the only way to break the cycle.He walks and lets his wife sit on the camel.” The next day, they switch places so they don’t get people talking. She lets her man sit on the camel as she does all the walking.” So they both decide to get on the camel. They put all their weight on the poor camel.” Finally, they both get off the camel and do the walking themselves, thinking that will stop all the talk for sure. We usually have a hard time thinking about anything else. Otherwise, the intimidator will continue this behaviour with others. The best way to handle any situation is to concentrate on what we can do to change it and what we can learn from it.
You walk around with your head held high but not like some ‘stuck up chick held high more’ like a super self confidence high.
