This is just part of the life we were given to live. As human beings, difficulties will constantly be knocking on our doors. And the reaction that we choose to face the difficulties with is our responsibility. Nothing in life is permanent. If we take an example at the 4 different seasons we go throughout the year. We can see that one season there are leaves to the trees, next the leaves are falling from the trees. We can see our lives the same way, sometimes things are good, and …

6 Ways To Live A More Positive LifePick the Brain

In a world where a great deal of people believe that negative thinking is a more realistic approach to life than positive thinking, it’s no wonder that our lives have become so negative.

3 Ways to Finally Commit to the Career Change You’ve Been Dreaming About

How many times have you said you were going to leave the job that makes you miserable, burned out and empty only to give up after hitting a roadblock or rough patch? We’ve all done this, started out with the best of intentions but we quit trying and end up right where we started or worse.  We end up feeling defeated and telling ourselves we’re a failure.

Why is it so difficult to stick with a …

Real change, the change that is fundamental, consistent, and longitudinal (lasting over time) has to happen in four quadrants of your life.

Harness The Power Of Words In Your Life

Speaking comes to most people as naturally as breathing. On many occasions our words are uttered without conscious thought; in fact we rarely stop and think about what we are saying. Thousands of words pour out of our mouths each day as our thoughts, opinions, judgements and beliefs are freely expressed. Often, however, we are oblivious to the positive or negative effect these words have on ourselves and the people around us. Words have tremendous power. Words give out energy and a message which creates a reaction in others. Everything you say produces an effect in the world. Whatever you say to someone else will produce some kind of an effect in that person. We are constantly creating something, either …

Get Motivated — It Pays

Pain may sometimes be the reason why people change. Getting flunked grades make us realize that we need to study. Debts remind us of our inability to look for a source of income.

Is raising the salary the only method of inspiring employees? Let us look at some others that can make a difference. The first thought of money and inspiration means that we subconsciously compare our employees to machines. Add more fuel, maintain and it will perform better but that is for machines.
