The most effective way to change your inner world is to change your outer world

Question: What’s the fastest way to improve your inner world (confidence, self-image, inner dialog, etc.)?

Answer: Improve your outer world.

If you want to be more confident or effective, rather than relying on easily-defeated positive thinking and mental gymnastics, learn to run faster, lift more than your peers, or lose those last ten pounds. It’s measurable, it’s clear, and you can’t lie to yourself. It therefore works.

The separation of mind and body is false. They are intertwined. Start with the precision of changing physical reality and a domino effect with often take care of the internal.
