Your worst enemy

Often the person that stands in your way, the one that stops you from making an impact and having the life you really want, the one who prevents you from reaching your destiny and being all that you can be… Is you. We really are our own worst enemy. But, there is another way. You […]

One simple decision is all it takes

One simple decision is all it takes to change the rest of your life. You can spend time doing the things you’ve been doing. Waste your time and energy fretting over what’s happened and how you’ve been dealt a bad hand. Mull over how you don’t have this or that and the other, and so […]

Celebrate the small things in life

It’s important to celebrate the small things in life. The small things that bring you joy and happiness. The key here is small, as we all have those things, and they are easy to create. You don’t need something significant to happen to feel joy and happiness: it could be as simple as taking a […]

How do you treat people who can’t do anything for you?

It’s easy to be nice to people who you can get things from. People who can do you favours. People who can help you, and benefit you, in some way or another. Those type of people are easy to be nice to, because you know you can (potentially) get something from them. But what about […]

The impact of old thoughts and beliefs

Old thoughts and beliefs affect you way more than you think they do. Our brains are amazing, astounding, incredible machines. No computer has yet been invented that can come anywhere close to the computing power of our brain. Incredible machine that it is, it automates as many of the daily decisions as possible. This is […]

Connecting with nature (+ a health hack)

Connecting with nature is not just good for you, it is NECESSARY to your well-being. Studies after studies have proven just how important nature is for our health. Our current sedentary lifestyle causes lots of health issues because, from an evolutionary biology point of view, we are not designed to function like that. It messes […]

How effective a strategy is using hate to fight hate?

Retaliation is often the default reaction to hate. Someone says something bad, we want to (or do) retaliate by saying something bad too. Someone does something bad, we want to do something bad in turn. Someone hates on us, we hate on them. And so on. This is, more often than not, the default behavioural […]

Your sense of wonder

We are surrounded by wonders. Big, and small. Every day, every moment, we are surrounded by wonders and marvels. Be it inside your own home, or outside. No matter where you are, how old you are, who you are – and all the many other different variables – you are surrounded by them. All you […]

Managing your Achilles heels

I am fairly good at self control, especially when it comes to food. I watch what I eat, and I don’t indulge. Even on my cheat days. But my resolve and self control faces a major struggle when faced with one food item. Banoffee pie. Generally I can manage to stick to having a max […]

Choosing misery is one option, or you can do the alternative

Being miserable isn’t the only option you have. Even though at times that’s what it might feel like. Everyday, every moment, we have a choice. We can either choose our reactions. Or, have the choice made for us and go with the automated response. The problem with automated responses is this: they aren’t always the […]
