"Self-criticism criticism is a big driver into why we don't value ourselves more and i certainly wrestled with that and a a big part of the argument is just if you are speaking thinking highly of yourself. Nobody else will either. So you sort of have to set the tone for how people are gonna perceive you and if you're worried that they think that you're not perfect or that you're failing that's the only choice they'll have to think and when it comes to asking for what you want whether it's you know a raise or anything it's hard to ask confidently for what you want when you're talking to yourself all the time about you don't deserve it and we. We tend to do that while we do it. Out loud to one of my pet. Peeves that i see my my peers. Do is get on social media and thank their husband for putting up with them We say things out loud and if you just track for a day the way you talk about yourself You start to see some kind of upsetting patterns about even if you do it ingest. Oh i'm so. I'm so stressed out him so harried. I'm so forgetful. And that kind of starts to lead the way other people think about you and the way you carry yourself and see really a big part of the book is changing your narrative and changing the way that you talk about yourself and see yourself and one of those is getting rid of that negative self-talk will it's so true. What you say out loud about yourself and what you say internally to yourself you say it enough and pretty soon other people start to believe it and you start to believe it and pretty soon you become the person that you're talking about. Yeah that was one of the personal negotiations. I did was when i had my first kid. I thought it was very important that i looked very busy and stressed out and at work i needed to be talking about how much i missed my kids and when i was with my kids i needed to be stressed about work and i did this sort of on and offer a year sort of glorifying busy and then i just. I don't know what hit me. But i thought this isn't. This isn't who i am. I don't. I don't wanna be like this and i realized a lot of it was just. I dunno fake narrative. And i didn't want to be that example for my students and so i just stopped and i renegotiated and i thought no the the way i wanna be. Perceived is excited about all the stuff. That's in my life. And i am and so why was i why was i. So quick to pana- write it off or act like it was a burden when it wasn't one of the things you've made really clear here is a big part of asking for what you want and getting what you want is internal is is preparing yourself to do it. Not just in who you ask and how you ask it. It's been it's been really insightful doctor. Meg myers morgan has been my guest.

It's called build for tomorrow with jason pfeiffer bill for tomorrow is a podcast about those crazy curious things you think about things that have shaped who we are like how the elevator changed the way we live or is our constant use of technology really an addiction or is that the wrong word to use. Each episode is researched fast paced funny and it aims to answer some big questions about about our history and ourselves like why are we so obsessed with the good old days. Why why do people hate being told what to do. And why does every older generation think the younger generation is doomed. Bill for tomorrow also digs into the surprisingly controversial history of things that we love today like teddy bears which were the most subversive toy in history or forks which were banned for centuries or umbrellas which the british once refused to use. When you listen to build for tomorrow you learned that. Today's worries there often just echoes of yesterday's worries and that the future is really full of opportunity. That's why listener. Say this show really helps them feel more optimistic so check it out. Find build for tomorrow. Wherever you get your podcasts.

"Picking my son up at camp of course is everyone's leaving everybody's taking pictures and i love taking pictures but i'm not so thrilled about being pictures. Koso- often. I don't think i look that good and if you've ever felt that way here are some tips that will ensure that you look better in the photographs. You're in if you're taking a selfie you know a photograph of you and someone else with your arm out in front of you. Be careful the tendency is to hold the camera too low so it shooting up a low camera angle is never flattering. Try to position a camera level with your forehead and then tilted down slightly instead of faking a smile. Try to think about something truly happy. A genuine smile always looks better. And don't say cheese. You can use this. Hollywood trick and say the word money instead the movement of the lips when you say money makes the smile. Look more natural to prevent squinting or having your eyes shut when the photo was taken. Ask the photographer to count to three. Then close your eyes and open them on three. If you're standing turn slightly and put your weight on one foot. It may feel funny but you will look better and look slightly above the lends not directly into it and that is something you should know. I have always remembered advice. My father gave me when i was very young. And that is if you want something you have to ask for. It seems like simple and pretty obvious advice but so much of the time. We don't ask for what we want and often when we do. We don't ask in a confident way as if we don't deserve it well enough of that doctor. Meg myers morgan is here to help you. Discover how.
