Positive energy is a like a muscle. The more you use it the stronger it gets. The stronger it gets the more powerful you become. Repetition is the key and the more you focus on positive
We all experience a fair share of stress in our lives, so why not arm yourself with a gadget or 10 to help reduce it when you do have to deal with it? Stress relief relies on many factors, but a gadget
Selflessness is something that can be easily defined by doing something for someone else without any intention of getting anything back from them in the future. It can be argued that the good feeling of doing something for someone else is the motive behind someone wanting to do a good deed so there is actually no such thing as a selfless act, but I disagree.
I have seen first hand how someone has dedicated their life to helping others, and the impact this has had on that person and the people she has helped. For the last 2 years, my sister has dedicated her life to helping orphan children in India and since she made this decision, she has ignited her passion and seems to be running on endless energy. This energy has fueled her to push her own boundaries and develop herself to a higher level, just to make herself more capable of helping more.
The act of helping others for her has become and endless source of energy. She lives with the orphan children and they constantly give her love and affection, because of the love and affection she has given them. this then in turn helps her go further and do more for them, and since she launched her charity, Prishan Foundation, she has raised over $240,000, through fundraising in Vancouver, BC and online. She has built one orphanage for 40 children, and is in the process of building a second.
In her own words, the energy she gets from doing this is endless and she feels like she has tapped into something that has proven to her that we are her to help each other. When we do something for someone else, it makes us inherently feel good. So all we have to do is do something for someone else without wanting them to do anything for us and we are filled with good emotions. Does that mean that if everyone did something good for someone else selflessly that they would all feel good? Does that mean that if we all did this many of our problems would be solved? Maybe.
If you want to get inspired to do something good, check out Prishan Foundation and see how someone has dedicated their life to helping those that are no different to us but have been forgotten, and see what a difference she is making. Hopefully it will encourage you to do something good.
Positive And Successful Thinking
In today's competitive global marketplace, to win we must outwit, out maneuver and out think the competition. The world changes daily and new thinking is critical to
This post is for YOU if:
- You wake up in the morning dreading going to work
– You find your job unfulfilling and unchallenging
– You never seem to have enough free time to do what you love to do
– You have many dreams and aspirations that you procrastinate until a future date when all these perfect conditions are aligned before you pursue them
There are a lot more but you get the general idea…
We all get to a point in our lives where nothing seems to be stimulating or exciting for us. Having a job is absolutely fantastic, but not when it has become monotonous and you really aren’t learning anything.
So in fact, you’re earning money to go home and spend that money on actually enjoying yourself. You have to spend more money to compensate for the miserable time you had at work, so the fact that you have a job means you end up spending more to make up for it.
Therefore, having a job means you are always Just Over Broke (Job). You just have enough to live slightly comfortably but for this privilege, you have to give up the best hours of your day, use up all of your energy, and neglect YOU.
If, like so many employees out there you feel like this, it’s time for a change.
The are two books that have inspired me to make a change and to write this post are The $100 Start Up by Chris Guillebeau and The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris.
I have always been someone who doesn’t stick around if I’m not having fun or if I don’t feel like I’m working towards my goals in a particular role. Why would I spend my days miserable just to pay my bills and end up spending more money cheering myself up because I have a job that makes me miserable? Seems like a vicious cycle to me.
We all have hobbies. We all have passions. Fear and anxiety are there because the outcome is unknown and it’s a natural feeling to have. The trick is to face it and do it anyway.
I took these steps and made a positive change in my life. How?

We’ve all been angry on occasion. Some of us more than others but we all know the feeling of rage when someone cuts us off on the highway or insults us in some way. The red mist that swoops over us can take over and make us do and say things we would never say normally.
We get angry when:
- We feel disrespected
- We lose something
- We want something but can’t have it
- And many more reasons that we come up with
We all know anger is unhealthy, and we all know that if we choose to, we never have to be angry at all. When any of those anger causing events happen, it is our decision how we act. It is the voice that is in our head after this event that causes the anger and the emotions that stream from it.
When we’re angry, our body prepares us for battle. It acts as if we are in a fight for our life and gives us the energy for combat. But in fact, we are not in any danger but we still feel like we have been attacked. It pumps us with adrenaline and we use it to fight and get angry. This is not healthy and very draining.
The inner monologue that goes on in someone’s head just before they get angry is the voice that tells them why they should be getting angry. It is like the friend you had in high school who was always making trouble and trying to start fights between people. It gives you all the reasons you should fight, and the consequences of what might happen if you don’t. So obviously, you have no option but to get angry right? Wrong.
The secret to getting rid of anger is simple. All you have to do is:
- Stop listening to that voice
- Realise that anger doesn’t solve anything and venting makes things worst
- Give yourself a break and take some time before reacting. The best remedy to anger is time
All we have to do is to interrupt that inner monologue. Not listen to it. That’s why they tell you to count to ten (or a hundred depending on the intensity) when you get angry because when you’re concentrating on counting, you can’t be listening to any negative thoughts.
By shutting this off, we give ourselves a break and realise that in fact, no one can do anything. Nothing is that serious to jeaperdise your health, and if it is, fix the problem rationally and you’ll never have to deal with it again. And sooner or later, that friend who’s always egging you on to start a fight will give up and leave, and you’ll find that inner peace. Anger will become a thing of the past.
“How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it’
