Are you saying yes when you mean no? Do you say yes to things and then immediately think, “Why did I do that?!!!!” Do you say yes to projects when you’re already running on empty so you know you can’t do your best? Are you overworked, overstressed, and anxious because you continuously agree to things you don’t agree with? Do you commit to things, then flake at the last minute because you never really wanted to go in the first place? 

Well, you’re not alone.3746164540?profile=RESIZE_710x

You probably are afraid of disappointing people. You probably worry constantly about what people are thinking of you. No matter how hard you work or how well you do, you probably fear that it’s not enough. You probably feel responsible for how other people think. If someone is in a bad mood, you probably wonder…

Overcoming Failure

No one likes to fail, but everyone fails at some point in their lives. For many people, the fear of failure is paralyzing and stops them from overcoming failure and reaching their goals.

The fear of failure creates negative self-talk that keeps people from learning and growing.

Overcoming the fear of failure is a necessary step in achieving personal goals and being successful. Scientists, psychologists, and business leaders have studied the fear of failure and how people can overcome it.

Overcoming the fear of failure is divided into three areas:

  1. Preparing for Fear of Failure
  2. Confronting Fear of Failure
  3. Recovering from Failure…

Success Takes as Long as It Takes

Do you have Big Goals for your life? Any major success you want to obtain is probably going to take a lot longer than you anticipate when you start the journey. If you stay the course you will find that success takes as long as it takes.3736902524?profile=RESIZE_710x


It’s just human nature. We get a good idea about something we want to be, do, have, and the idea captures our minds and emotions. The honeymoon phase is fantastic. Daydreaming and brainstorming of your exciting new idea and the world of possibility that will open up once you reach this new goal. You are energized and ready to take on the world.


If you are new to this game, I’m sorry to tell you, but you have a mountain ahead of you. And no one has ever successfully scaled a mountain quickly and easily. Sure, from a…

The Seven-Day Mental Diet

Dr. Emmet Fox, July 30, 1886- August 13, 1951

God and develop their God-like attributes. He said, "when that happens your life becomes simple, richer and infinitely more worthwhile." He taught and

The Song of God

Who are you? Have you ever asked yourself this question? Most probably you have not. Such a question would have seemed absurd because you took your identity so much for granted. Had anyone else put the question you would have said: "I am John Smith. I live at such an address. I am so many years old. I am the son of Henry Smith. I am in such a business." And you might add that you were a member of the right church and the right political party.3715097711?profile=RESIZE_710x

Well, these statements are correct enough, as far as they go, as a description of the picture you are projecting at the present time: but--- and here is the rub---it is only a picture. It is all just a dramatization of your sincere beliefs about yourself. It is not the real you. It is but a passing unstable symbol of your current mental attitude: nothing more.

The real you is a spiritual being, perfect and eternal…

Medical experts call it the ‘disease of our time.’ It’s not just for children anymore. Everyone suffers from it. What used to be something you temporarily went through until your lecture was over or it’s finally your turn at the doctor’s office has now become a disease. That’s how serious it is.

 

Maybe the main reason why boredom is now a chronic disease is due to the endless array of stimuli that bombard your every waking moment, making it difficult to concentrate on any given topic. We’ve been programmed that we wake up and expect to have information thrown at us, and we know we’re supposed to sit there and take it. We’ve stopped interacting and engaging. Consequently, we get bored.

 

Boredom is annoying and frustrating. And it may even get to the point when you feel…

If you genuinely want to be your best and have a happy and healthy life, you need to learn how to set boundaries. Boundaries are being clear about what your limits are, and they are necessary to ensure you don't get overwhelmed by the demands of other people. Without limitations, you are likely to be overburdened, stressed, and resentful, and it is up to you to set and maintain your limits.  You are the only one responsible for your happiness and…
