5 Things That Keep You From Success

Image
Don’t blame anybody in your life. Bad people give you experience. Good people make you feel happy. Worst people teach you lessons. Best people give you incredible memories. This means that everyone provides value in your life and that your attitude and mindset are the vital elements of feeling fulfilled in your relationships and experiences. You can’t and won’t be fulfilled or thrive unless your heart and mind are in balance. For instance, there’re many wealthy, miserable people in Hollywood, California, since they have a lot of money, but they’re not fulfilled or abundant in their hearts and minds. Five Things That May Be Preventing You from Achieving Success: Bad habits A bad habit is anything that you often do that you wished you did not – cursing, drinking alcohol, smoking, eating fast food, watching too much TV, etc. You may do these things as they give you instant gratification. But, you’re probably reading the article as you want fulfilment and abundance

I forgive but I also learn a lesson.

I forgive, but I also learn a lesson. I won’t hate you, but I’ll never get close enough for you to hurt me again. I can’t let my forgiveness become foolishness. ~Tony Gaskins 12 Reasons to Forgive the Person Who Hurt You the Most This time of year chances are your personal relationships are getting a little more attention than usual. During the holidays, we often spend more time with friends and family, attending holiday parties, visiting other people’s homes and taking time away from work. Sometimes, this shared time can be lovely. Other times, we feel forced to spend quality time with people who have hurt us. For others still, our broken relationships keep us from spending any time together whatsoever, and we feel sad, lonely or angry because of it. At a time of year dedicated to spending time with loved ones, we often are reminded more fully of the relationships that hurt the most. So, in the spirit of the holidays, I encourage you to consider forgiving someo

8 Crucial Lessons Most People Learn Too Late in Life

Image
Time is fleeting. It’s one of the things we cannot control. That’s why we need to make the best of it. Sadly, most people realize some things too late. Things they should have realized a long time ago. Here are 8 of them. 1. BE KIND. ALWAYS Smile at strangers, it doesn’t cost anything, but it can make their day. Help the friend who is struggling. Learn how to give more than you receive. We all need kindness. Being kind can make a difference in the world. It can change someone’s life for the better, and yours too. 2. ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS Yes, you may all have heard this phrase, but not many of you put it into practice. This is because we, as humans, tend to believe what we want to believe and so we are prone to falling for someone’s false words if they are what we need to hear. Pay attention and look for the actions. If their actions don’t match their words, they are meaningless. 3. SHOW GRATITUDE Learn to be grateful for all the things in your life.

25 Secrets of Adulthood That I Had to Learn the Hard Way

Image
When it comes to being an adult, you never stop learning things. As a child, you might think adults know everything but the truth is ‘more’ and ‘everything’ are nowhere near the same. While I am still learning myself, sometimes sharing the things you have learned with others can help them along their journey as well. Sure, some of these things you may have already learned but they are all things I had to learn the hard way. We tend to trust too quickly and move to fast in this life, slow down and consider things before moving forward. If learning the hard way can be avoided, I promise it will make things a lot easier. 1. Being an adult sucks. If I could go back in time and be a kid again I would. Being an adult is not fun. You have to do everything for yourself and deal with the stress of life. Sure, you might not miss being a kid as much as some people do but you need to know that growing up is not all roses and daisies. 2. Things usually get worse before they

Is Your Inner-Self Exhausted? 5 Signs That You Need To Know About It

Image
We often tend to focus on the more controllable life challenges. It is only natural since we feel confident about our ability to solve what we can see and properly perceive. For example, when we are sick, the doctors provide a remedy for the symptoms that they observe. We have designated providers of solutions when it comes to mind and body. What about the spirit? Spiritual exhaustion is more common than we like to think. Even more is the effect of not knowing when one is spiritually exhausted. This fatigue is not just limited to one’s body or the mind, but even their higher being is disturbed and feeling out of juice. It is also a sign that we have disconnected from our inner self. Spiritual exhaustion happens when one’s soul is fatigued due to constant giving and almost no receiving of care and essential spiritual energy from their purpose and the people they are helping. Many healers go through this, but it is not limited to only them. So how can one know that the

Apparently You Shouldn’t EVER Kill a Centipede Inside Your Home. This Is Good Information

Image
These pests are actually unsung heroes. Your home is supposed to be your sanctuary, a place where you can relax, unwind, and kick off your shoes. However, any sense of tranquility is easily shattered if you’ve ever spotted a house centipede crawling around your personal space. If you’re blissfully unaware of what a house centipede looks like, prepare to be enlightened. The hideous looking creatures have what appear to be like a hundred legs, but according to Wikipedia there are actually only 15 pairs of legs, the key word being pairs! All of these long sets of legs stick out from their inch or longer bodies and to top it all off they have an extra long pair of antennae that makes them look way bigger than they actually are. They are downright ugly and unless you’re a fan of creepy crawlies, then you likely won’t enjoy these things running around your house. Speaking of running, they are super fast so all of those spindly legs aren’t for nothing! Oftentimes people sp

8 Lessons To Achieve True Happiness From Lao Tzu

Image
The founder of Taoism and ancient Chinese philosopher, Lao-Tzu, has said that happiness is the key to unlocking one’s inner strength and achieve well-being. Lao-Tzu believed that if a man fails to uncover the happiness in life and cherish it he will never stop struggling in life. For him, one must always follow the 8 main rules of happiness if one wants to be truly happy. If you want to achieve eternal bliss and discover true happiness in life, here are the 8 rules of Lao Tzu that promise to help you do just that: Follow your heart “At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” Learn to listen to your heart. It holds the answers to your questions. Follow its voice. Never cast aside the answer it gives you in favor of fantastical outcomes, for it rarely becomes a reality. When you learn to listen to your heart, you overcome every challenge that may come your way. Enjoy the journey “A good traveler has no fixe

Why Crying A Lot Means You’re Mentally Tough

Image
In our culture, people crying is a sign of weakness. Crying, as it turns out, is actually rather good for you. According to Dr. William H. Frey II, PhD: “Crying is not only a human response to sorrow and frustration, it’s a healthy one. Crying is a natural way to reduce emotional stress that, left unchecked, has negative physical affects on the body, including increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other stress-related disorders.” So how is it that crying shows our strength? 1. You realize that crying is beneficial to your overall health. In addition to emotional benefits, crying offers plenty of other benefits. For example, it lowers manganese levels, which can use excessive stress and anxiety if too much builds up in your system, while also encouraging the release of feel-good hormones. In addition, tears are needed to see clearly because they help lubricate your eyes and stop dehydration. Finally, crying helps flush harmful toxins and bacteria from

Letting Him Go Is Hard, But Sometimes It’s The Best Thing You Can Do For Yourself

Image
All good things come to an end perhaps sounds like a cliché but it’s true and sometimes it can be quite painful. This is especially so when it’s your relationship that has come to an end. You deeply fell in love with him. You let him into your heart and devoted every single part of you to him. He was the reason behind all your smiles and moments of happiness. He was the one that made your heart beat like crazy. You had a great time together, but you also went through many problems and tests. You fought hard to preserve your relationship but somehow things got out of control. Many times, you heard that little voice in your head telling you: “You need to let him go.” It sounded awful. Unbearable. You couldn’t stand listening to it, so you tried to keep it quiet. You never thought that you would have to tell him goodbye. You believed you were meant to be together. You believed he was your soulmate. You couldn’t accept the reality that many things changed in your rel

8 Behaviors That Reveal Someone Is Mentally Strong

Image
“Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.” Bruce Lee Mental strength does not happen overnight. It’s actually the result of habits that are practiced every day. People who are mentally strong are confident, have respect for themselves, let go of bad habits, establish boundaries, accept challenges, and retain their personal power. They’re aware that living a life to the fullest is up to them. That’s why they rely on only themselves to do so. What they do, or do not do, in life depends on their mental attitude. Of course, other circumstances may get in the way, but they have control over their life. Mentally strong people stand out from the crowd. This is how you’ll recognize them. 1. THEY ARE COMMITTED AND DISCIPLINED. A mentally strong person has a life purpose. They believe in it with their whole heart and mind. People who have mental strength are willing to give it their whole time and energy; they swear on a deep commitmen

1st Graders Could Solve These Puzzles In Seconds, But Most Adults Can’t, Can You?

Image
KIDS in Hong Kong can solve this logic puzzle in just 20 seconds, but it’s got lots of adults dazed and confused. Can you figure it out? The puzzle comes from a Hong Kong elementary school admission test for six-year-olds going into first-grade. It contains a simple drawing of a parking lot with a car parked in one of the many bays available. The bay number the car is in is unable to be seen (see above) and the question asked above the drawing is: “What is the number of the parking space containing the car?” The puzzle can be found at Puzzlersworld.com and has made world headlines as more and more people try to solve it. Still haven’t worked it out? SPOILER ALERT: The answer is below! British puzzle inventor David Bodycombe told The Guardian the parking lot logic puzzle was first created by him. He thought of it after he was inspired by a car park he saw in Portugal 20 years ago. THE ANSWER TO THE LOGIC PUZZLE: If you need a hint, try looking at this. The tr

Aging Gracefully: Remember 10 Important Mantras

Image
Many people feel unhappy, health-wise and security-wise, after 60 or 70 or 80 years of age, believing a diminishing importance is given to them and their opinions. But, it need not be so, if only we understand the basic principles of life and follow them. Here are ten mantras to help you age gracefully, to make life after retirement more pleasant, to enjoy and treasure the elder years of wisdom and intelligence. 1. Time is precious It’s almost like holding a horse’s reins. When they are in your hands, you can control them. Imagine that every day you are born again. Yesterday is a paid check. Tomorrow is a promissory note. “Today is ready cash; use it profitably. Live this moment”. 2. Health is wealth If you really love your kids and kin, taking care of yourself and your health should be your priority. Thus, you will not be a burden to them. Have an annual health check-up and take the prescribed medicines regularly. Take out health care insurance coverage. 3

11 Things People Don’t Realize You’re Doing Because Of Your High Functioning Anxiety

Image
Anxiety can be very harmful and it’s not something to be overlooked. The worst problem is that a lot of people can’t understand the effects it can have on a person and find anxious people as being lazy, irresponsible and passive. If you are not an anxious person, knowing this can help you understand anxiety a bit better. If you are, we are sure you are going to agree with these things. 1. Decline invites although you may want to go Again, it’s difficult for those who have never experienced anxiety to understand, but often times people who are suffering from anxiety cannot bring themselves to be social—or even to go out into society—even though they’d like to go out and have a good time very much. This is partly because the individual feels as though they’ll make the experiences less fun for everyone else there. 2. Obsess over trivial things other people may not even notice A simple word or an unintended glance from someone is enough for your head to start proc

Going On Vacation Could Help You Live Longer, New Study Claims

Image
When was the last time you took a vacation? If you are the type of person who is juggling a career to make ends meet and to reach your ambition, chances are it’s been a long time. In keeping up with the fast paced demand of our career and profession, it can be difficult to squeeze a vacation in our tight schedule. But did you know that new study shows that skipping your can vacations actually make your life shorter? “If you know someone who doesn’t take vacations and works long hours, he or she may be at risk of cardiovascular disease.” Dr. Timo Strandberg, a professor at the Department of Medicine at the University of Helsinki and co-author of the study, warned. In his study which collected data of Finnish businessmen over the last four decades, Dr. Strandberg discovered that taking a trip and going on a vacation reduces the risk of untimely death by 37 percent. His thorough study which began in year 1974 involved a total of 1,222 men born between the years of 191

19 Powerful Lessons From Robin Williams On Life, Love, Money, and Loneliness

Image
It’s been over 4 years since the great Robin Williams passed away. It’s hard to believe that that much time has passed already. He was 63 when he died, but in those 63 years, he played more than 100 iconic roles that brought laughter and deep thought to millions of people around the world. Robin Williams was a funny, complicated man who brightened the lives of many people through his comedy and his wit. He was amazing and unforgettable and I know he was always able to put a smile on my face. He was more than an actor and a comedian. He was an incredibly brilliant man. Each quote makes me think about life, love, joy, and laughter. These are 19 of his most powerful quotes… “You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” “The essential truth is that sometimes you’re worried that they’ll find out it’s a fluke, that you don’t really have it. You’ve lost the muse or – the worst dread – you never had it at all. I went through all that madness earl

Study Shows That A Bad Boss Can Make Employees Sick

Working full time can take a lot out of you. Whether it’s because you’re sitting down for most of the day, working crazy shifts, or just not getting enough sleep, it can take a toll on your body. A lot of people focus on how their jobs can negatively impact their physical health (so they buy a standing desk, or make conscious efforts to break up their stare-at-a-screen time), but what about your mental health? It turns out the biggest factor about your job that impacts your overall wellbeing isn’t actually about you… it’s about your boss! You Boss Can Be the Biggest Source of Your Stress at Work For 75% of Americans, bosses are a major cause of stress at work. A Linkedin article published by Quartz magazine reveals that a bad boss can be as harmful to employees as passive smoking. The article also says that the longer you stay in a job working for someone who stresses you, the greater the damage is to your physical and mental health. According to Quartz, data from

What You See First Will Tell Everything About Your Internal State

Image
Look at this picture. It may seem this is the most common picture, but it’s not. Look carefully, and you will see some details. Of course, each of us will pay attention to different things. Someone can see two horses, and someone else a girl. There are also those who will see the landscape. Exactly what you see first will tell what worries you at this moment. Look at the picture again. So, what did you see first? 1. If you saw a woman’s face It says that you are mentally exhausted. You are tired physically and morally, so still, other people take your energy. It can be anyone: your relatives, neighbors, friends, etc. You must understand that your inner peace should be above all. You need rest from all. A little selfishness and you will correct this situation. 2. If you saw horses It speaks of the affairs of the heart. You have to work on your relationship. Do not deceive your loved one, be honest with them. And, if you are still alone, it will not
