Possessions affect your confidence.


We had a great show on PRWTalk Radio last night.

We discussed how our possessions can adversely affect our confidence. Yes, your ‘stuff’ becomes your evidence that you have achieved …[XYZ]. Trouble is, the more we have the more our confidence is wrapped up in it.

But what if we lost it all?

What would that do to our confidence?

  1. I remember that divorce. I had to leave my house which I owned pre marriage, two little children and took whatever I could pack in my ’72 Cutlass and my dog to start all over again broke. I learned how little I really needed not only to survive but to be happy without all the frivolous accouterments we think are so necessary(it was great not needing a lawn mower anymore). Things can own us. That was 30 years ago and I have lived a sort of “reduced portfolio ” life ever since and am grateful for the lesson as painful as it was at the time.

    • Hi Carl, isn’t it obvious on reflection how our awful experiences are every bit as important as our wonderful ones. If we are having a bad time at the moment, let’s remember the gift it is for the future. Thanks for that insightful comment my friend. 🙂

    • Carl, your story reminds me of my favorite Pema Chodron quote: “when a thing happens, you don’t always know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing.”
      The older I get, the more “stuff” I get rid of. . .the less I shop. I like my husband and by dog best, so I am keeping them.;-) Love to you from across the pond, Stuart. Love all your insights!
