How To Stop Measuring Yourself By Comparing with Others

Do you think a hike in your salary would make you happy? You believe so, don’t you? But hold on to that thought. There is more to it than just the percentage increase. For 2 years, I observed a team of people. They exhibited a peculiar behavior after annual hike announcements. During the first year, the market was not performing well. As a result, the hike percentages were low for all the team members. People were disappointed, no doubt, but no one complained as such. The very next year, the market had picked up. The whole team got a fantastic increase in salary. Did the entire team enjoy and rejoice? You’d expect that, but what happened was the opposite. The …

How to end your “if only” list and accept yourself as you are

By Cheryl Melody Baskin If only I didn’t have to work anymore, THEN I’d be happy. If only I could land a job, THEN I’d be happy. If only I could find the right partner, THEN I’d be happy. If only I could get some peace and quiet around here, THEN I’d be happy. If only I could become rich and famous, THEN I’d be happy. Do you have similar thoughts?

“Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.” ~ Norman Augustine I truly believe Augustine’s words are true and if you look at history you know it is true. There are many people in the world with amazing talents who realize only a small percentage of their potential. We all know people who live this truth.

Compartmentalizing helps stress management as it can reduce anxiety and tension. It’s an approach that is …

What would be the best frame of mind to have? Whenever you want to get out of a real-feeling-bad situation you just need to realise that the answer is …
