Topic is sexy confidence.
You guys might look at me up here, I think ah what a handsome, confident man. And you’re right.
But I wasn’t always this way. Some of you know that I hired a dating coach to get me to this point. And that was very fruitful.
And yes I really, really wanted to date women.
But I was also incredibly, uncomfortable around other human being. Let me explain.
While I would be in the presence of other people, I would get this uneasiness in my belly. And that came from this particular line of thinking.
I always wondered, will this person like me even though I am like ____?
Will this person like me though I’m really skinny?
Will this person like me even though my hands curl and bend in ways that other people’s don’t?
Will this person like me even though I’m in a wheelchair?
And the way I combated this feeling was to try to hide everything and just blend in, just fit into the crowd.
And so I shop for clothing at stores that were popular like Abercrombie & Fitch, even though they were way too big for me. And I couldn’t wear contacts. So I got the most, small frameless glasses that I can find, so people wouldn’t notice that I needed glasses.
And I even – I even got a buzz cut with my hair, just so I wouldn’t have to worry about my hair not looking good on a particular day, because that would be another thing I could say. People might not like me because my hair is not looking good to them.
And most of all, I have NEVER EVER spoke to anyone about my medical condition, or my wheelchair.
If anyone would ask about it, I’d clam up, get very uncomfortable and just try to change the topic as quick as possible. I was trying to pretend that none of this existed. And I was hoping that other people were too. And the only result was that people were uncomfortable, very uncomfortable around me.
And so this coach that I hired, he realized this and said, ‘Amin, I know you’re trying to be unnoticeable, but help me out with this one, because you’re going to stick out like a sore thumb wherever you go’.

And I first thought, oh shit, someone knows my secret.
But then I thought, okay that kind of make sense, people are going to look at me.
So with his help, I decided to own it, I decided if people are going to look at me, I’m going to give them something to look at. And so I started wearing very tight fitting clothing, even if it was from the women section and I started finding the funkiest glasses I liked and wearing those. And I started coloring my hair blue and purple and I’m doing these crazy designs now.
And I even have fun with my socks, I’m wearing pink socks today. And you don’t see them in fact today because I’m going to workout today – maybe you’ll get lucky – crazy.
And most of all, I started changing how I talk about my wheelchair and my condition, especially when someone comes up to me with those sad eyes and says, ‘oh what happened’. And I usually say ‘you know, I just got tired of looking for parking’, it’s just easier this way, believe me.
And so I ask you guys where does that uneasiness in your belly come from?
What does that voice in your head say?
What is it telling you to hide?
Because that voice never goes away. I still have that voice in my head.
But I’ve decided to do something different with it. And I invite you to do the same.

I invite you to flaunt that thing that it tells you to hide, to celebrate that thing, because when you do, I think that’s when you find your own version of sexy confidence.
Thank you [indiscernible].
