But you first need to know if what you are feeling is a legit, true self gut feeling or if it’s just your ego trying to get you to make a decision that will not help you in the long run.

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Life Issues, Podcasts Leave a Comment

Embracing what is the “different” in you is about the full and complete acceptance of who you are and the unique differences you offer to the world. It’s about not comparing, not competing and not feeling crappy about yourself because you don’t “conform” to what you think you “should” look like or act like or feel like or think like or “BE” like. This week I was really excited to have my very good friend and Expert Voice of Millennial, Mariah, on the show.

An Easy Cure for FOMO

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Life Issues, Podcasts Leave a Comment

This week, Lexi and I would like to share with you an easy cure for FOMO, or the Fear of Missing Out. Fear of missing out isn’t new. “FOMO” is simply this generation’s version of the expression “the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” The feeling of missing out is rooted in the Ego, from being unhappy or disappointed in where your life is at right now. It’s wrongly focusing on what you’re not doing/having versus what you have, basically undermining your confidence that you’re making the right choice by doing what you are doing. …
