So by the title of my post you can probably guess the topic here.
4 years ago I took the risk/plunge/chance of getting the treatment.
Since that time, I've changed jobs, been promoted, been through 2 relationships, got two additional degrees and a bunch of other small stuff.
What has stayed current? My physical fitness, confidence and my treatment.
So why am I mentioning this. Well for the first time in a while I was able to sit down and think about the correlation between the treatment and my life successes..........if there is any for that matter.
My conclusion is that there is a correlation. The treatment enabled me to feel more confident about myself. A few months ago I commented that prior to the treatment I was always a confident individual. In other words, I always felt like I got a big hammer. However, with the treatment there was a change, after the treatment I felt as though a had a much bigger hammer...................... stupid but its the truth.
What changed about me? My attitude and willingness to take more risks, both personally and professionally. The fear used to be "shut up bald guy" verses "shut up cuz that's dumb"
With my career, I've been willing to speak up more and voice outside the box thoughts. With my personal life, I was more willing to approach the "hot girl" with greater success because I guess that confidence shines through.
While defending my third Masters, I remember there was a moment where I was asked a question and before answering thought to myself "Whatever, I'm a good looking guy and they will accept my answer". Long behold, as outrageous as my comment was, it was accepted. Was it because of my treatment, not necessarily. But the treatment was the cause of me saying what I did.
So this brief reflection of the past 4 years makes me wonder whether I made the right decision or not.............
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?
