Why I wrote “100 new little things” and first free chapter of this ebook

By talking and sharing with friends, there are two main important things about the ebook that came up to me which are this question: “Why did you write this book?” and the suggestion to “Post some free pages, like Amazon does.”

So the first chapter is posted below in this article, please scroll down, and here are my short sharing of Why I wrote it.

Why I wrote this ebook

The book is my own experience, and the experience at the beginning is not as clear as written in the book, but it is in fact a long journey from many years ago of an introverted and lazy person, trying to get out of the box that life locked her in.

My beginning was like many people who tried something new to overcome stress and boredom. Then I got swept up in the whirlwind of works, schools and responsibilities, felt nothing that I really loved and the limits that introverts always encounter. And then I told myself: why couldn’t I both keep my nature (introverted) and radiate in a different way instead of clumping inwardly? A cute kind of “extroverted introvert”, or an ambivert 🙂

And then I realized a recipe of 3 ingredients (see chapter 1 below), which if being put individually will be found spread and shallow throughout the web, but are extremely beneficial to combine, and immediately from the beginning I have set it as “100 new little things”. And it’s especially helpful for introverts to try their own way. In addition, because these are just small beginnings, introverts will not feel compelled to “strive hard”, to “change their values,” or to “expose oneself to public” in order to achieve success.

Simply emotions are the way our mind communicates with us, they’re the messages our mind sends to us to tell us something, positive or negative. Dealing probably with your emotions all about understands this message and respond to it in a proper way. To understand this concept in more depth, let’s explore few emotions and see the message behind each one of them and how to respond to each one.

The message behind the emotions

Depression: the message behind depression is “Get me out of here”. Depression means that there’s something in your life causing you pain. One way to deal with this message is to do something about your situation. Whether it’s relationships problems, financial problems, losses or anything, you need to deal with that source of pain. That pain could be the fact that your parents are having a fight everyday, that pain could be the fact that you’re not sure of your social abilities and that pain could be the fact that you’re broke. But this is not enough to get depressed, it is because you choose to ignore those problems or to feel helpless in front of them, and actually sometimes this is the real source of the pain and the reason for depression.

So to end depression once for all you first need to double check your mindset: are you ignoring or feeling helpless?, then you need to work on making physical changes in your life as much as possible.

Quick tips for Drawing

Hey friend, is that sometimes the talents that intrigue us the most oftentimes seem to exist just outside the reach of our grasp, even though we are all capable of mastering new crafts and skills? Is that life always has a tendency to intervene in humanity’s best-laid plans, and it is easy to sacrifice a dream when facing unrelated obligations? You may also think that you are too set in your ways to absorb fresh skills that it is difficult for ‘old dogs’ to learn new tricks or that doing so would ultimately prove a valueless undertaking?

However, learning is, first and foremost, an endeavor of the mind. To learn, you need to legitimately believe you can learn and that the abilities you gain as a result will serve to enrich your life. Once you learn, you will discover that education and practice inspire you and awaken you to a whole new range of possibilities.

It’s always amusing and fun to do something new; however, regularly we fall into the snare of spending our days the same way. In case you are stuck in a similar old daily practice, it may be a great opportunity to try something new.

Consider learning something new. What do you want to do that you have postponed or ignored? Have you dreamed of learning to dance, to sail, knit a sweater, sew, sculpt, paint, skydive, fly, ski, golf? Whatever you choose, your life will be enriched with fun, new friends and the pride of doing something new.

So, to provide an example, how about we try some Crafting?

150+ new little things to change your life

150+ new little things to change your life

(Vietnamese below / Tiếng Việt bên dưới)

Life can get boring if we live day in day out doing the same things and following the same routine. Why not inject something new into our life? We do not know how well we can do something without taking them into action.

After learning the procedure of daily routines, we usually do not even think about it. Our subconscious mind directs us to automatically go through the same motions over and over. New things force us to get off autopilot and reinvent ourselves. It doesn’t really matter what it is, as long as it is something new and unfamiliar. Stretch ourselves. Stretch our imaginations. Stretch our possibilities.

So, below is the list I create for you to try new little things. One of the longest lists so far in the Internet, which I am proud of 🙂

The list is divided into:

  • Doing new things (Art and Crafts, Social activities, Travel / New places, Writing / Reading, New skills, Personal habits)
  • Thinking differently (Dealing with emotions, Digging inner thoughts)

Enjoy.
