Find What Works For You, Forget The Rest

As human beings we are alike in many ways. Yet for all of our similarities, no two people are exactly the same. Even identical twins end up with different life experiences, either by twists of fate or because of their own choices. It is because of these differences that a “one size fits all” solution will rarely be the most optimal answer to our problems.

One of the main… Continue reading

Complacency is Death

What is complacency? It’s when you decide that you have done “enough”, and you can now just sit back and relax. Complacency most commonly sets in after you have achieved an important goal, or when you have acquired something that you value very highly. It’s perfectly fine to revel in your greatest accomplishments for a time, but once you feel that you no longer have to make an effort, then… Continue reading

Making the Right Choices Can Make All the Difference When it Comes to Being Happy

In one of my first posts on this blog, I went over the concept of happiness being a choice. It can be difficult to accept and apply this concept at first, because it runs counter to what most of the world believes. We are taught that we have to do all sorts of different things, and live our lives a certain way if… Continue reading

Progress Usually Comes In Bunches

Learning to Change: Why You Must Never Stop Learning

We spend most of our early lives learning, about ourselves and the world around us. We then move onto schooling, and job training after that. A large percentage of what we learn is front-loaded in the first twenty to twenty-five years of our lives, and then many people think that they have no need to learn anymore, because they are now adults.

The reason you must never stop learning… Continue reading

Your Actions Are What Define You

This article is a wake up call for every person that lies to themselves, and to others, about who and what they really are. You can talk yourself up all you want, you can say how you’re a good person, you can say that you are this or that. The truth is that your actions are what ultimately define who and what you are, not your words.

A Stripper…That… Continue reading

You Can Not Help Someone That Does Not Want To Be Helped

When I was younger I loved to read comic books, play video games, and watch movies. A common theme that ran through many of the stories was that of a heroic figure who saved the day. I really liked the idea of being a hero, and as I got older I looked for situations where I could be a hero to people.

A Rude Awakening

I started out… Continue reading

Should You Strive For Perfection, Or Choose Excellence?

When trying to improve any area of your life, you may sometimes find that you have the tendency to try to be “perfect”. Some people hold the belief that if you do not go all out and try to become the best, then it is not worth the time or effort. Holding yourself to a high standard is fantastic, but there is a thin line between high standards and perfectionism… Continue reading | 3 Comments

Ideas Mean Nothing Without Action

So you have this awesome idea for something new that you just know that people would love. It could be an idea for a fantastic book (or even a whole series of books), an incredible movie, a unique and original video game, or an innovative invention that would make many people’s lives easier and better.
