How to Be Confident with Ramit Sethi
Self confidence is a skill that can be learned. Ramit Sethi shows you a few strategies for how to be more social when you're at an event, out at a bar, or in a business scenario
It takes practice to learn how to not be awkward in these situations, but over time you will naturally become more confident.
“How did this …cking weirdo get in this room?” 😀
favorite part: “is that weird? Yeah, it’s kinda weird and you’re a weirdo if you’re watching this video so, let’s just accept that!”
This is why i really enjoy about Ramit. He can tell it like it is in a fun and humorous way without being all “in your face” or making you feel bad about it.
what an amazing guy
i have made several scenarios out in my head but sometimes what happens is either a scenario happens that i wasnt prepared for or a response was not what i expected, then i freak out and overthink.
thats my main problem which is overthinking and i feel that making scenarios in my head makes it worse. maybe i overthought this whole comment lol fuckkkk
Ooh, pick me!
When that happens what you do is later, you go back to your list of scenarios and write that one down. Write out what happened and what other people said to you and think about how you reacted, and try to “fix” the situation. If you were prepared, how would it have gone? What would you have said, and what would they have said? Create that ideal situation, and just add it to the list. Next time, you’re prepared.
You should listen attentively from the time you engage in and stop your urge to put your point quickly from script. Slow down a little and try.
I always end up being awkward as hell
haha love the effect at 3:29
I accept that I’m a weirdo!
I had a similar experience at a job interview once when I was answering a question, and received that WTF?! look on the interviewer’s face. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the question or my answer.
Damn, this man is good.
I’m the most socially awkward person in the world BUT I BANTERED WITH SOMEONE AT NANDO’S YESTERDAY – I ACTUALLY ASKED THEM ABOUT WHEN THEIR SHIFT IS ENDING AND IT WAS TOTALLY NATURAL! Normally I go up to someone and I go blank. I would try to say hi but I came off shy and weird. Last year I made myself get a position on a society at university to “push myself out of my comfort zone” but I think that made me worst – I was ill equipped to deal with a more intense situation. There was a meeting where I was in the middle of saying something and I just stopped and there was silence for a minute or two. I just didn’t know what to say and I got more and more nervous and that made me feel even more paralysed. It never occurred to me to write down or even practise how to talk to people. Earlier this summer I started spending my weekends role playing how to talk to people, the different things they could say, what I could say and now it’s so much easier! I can’t believe it! I’m bantering at Nando’s!!!
I laughed when he said you are a wierdo if you are watching this video
Thought I was the only one haha
lol i heard him say that like two seconds ago
“And you’re a weirdo if you’re watching this video”
Me: ok tru
“you’re the weirdo watching this video so let’s just accept that” hahah
thank you so much sir.
I really like it.
3 shots of whiskey before an interview. Saved you 5 minutes.
Ramit this is a million dollar answer I’m gonna do this for EVERYTHING in my life
Thanks mate! I’ll surely be using this!
Before I watched this I would always make a script before making a phone call because I was so scared to call strangers. Now I know I’m a weirdo but I’m not alone ? yay
Some times i become while having conversation clueless what to speak next , what to do in such situations ?
