When Night Falls On You

By Alexa Keating
Bad things happen to good people, to unsuspecting and innocent people who did nothing to invite those things into their life. Events will happen in life; your response defines the magnitude of the event and how much of your future will be effected by them. When significant events happen they can become an emotional hook in our lives, one that encompasses years of our future consistently dragging us back to the raw emotions experienced in those events. Anger is the most honest response, because anger is fear wearing a mask that is acceptable. This is the real monster that arrives on the scene and plans to stay for years; maybe even a lifetime. How do we escape from fear?

Fear is rooted in the belief that what is before us is much bigger and stronger than we are capable of battling. It is born from horror, dread, fright and panic; all emotions we feel when confronted with events that make us feel helpless. How we express that fear defines our future. Some people attempt to…

How to Be Happy Every Day: It Will Change the World | Jacqueline Way | T...

Most of us have heard the saying 'it is more of a blessing to give than to get'- an indirect quote from the bible 'it is more blessed to give than to receive'.  But in this video Jacqueline Way gives us a life changing strategy and method of using that truth to create happiness in both our own lives and the lives of those around us every single day.  She tells how this has changed the outlook of her kids and the 5000 kids that have used it in 25 different schools and explains it's just as effective for adults as it is for kids.  So, do you want to be happy 'every' day and find an effective antidote to depression, anxiety and general life dissatisfaction?  This is something that can be a day, a week, a month, a year and a life 'changer'!

To your 'happiness'...

Putting Aside Fear and Making the Change

By Sharon Flanagan

Three and a half years ago I decided to make a monumental change, one that greatly impacted the course of my life..
I was in a relationship that had become very unfulfilling and at times verbally abusive. I never thought I would have ever ended up with this type of person, as I always had to be the one in control, holding all the cards. He proved me wrong.

Like many of us do, we ignore all the warning signs in the beginning because we only see what we want to and will do things we normally wouldn't, out of intense love we feel for our partner.
Over time it had progressed to a dark place. I didn't want to go home, we fought constantly, and I was miserable more often than not. I had developed such a fear of what he may or may not do or say. I had morphed into someone I didn't recognize anymore. I felt crippled, stuck in a prison that I couldn't see how I would ever get paroled.

I decided over a period of a few months that I had to make a change because I wa…

Don't Allow Your Life To Be Controlled By These 5 Things

Let's face it.  We all want to live free, happy and fulfilled lives.  It's what we're destined for, and what we're made for.  We're destined for greatness, we're destined for an abundant life.  But, there are  controlling influences in this life that have the power to rob us of all that, if we allow them.  In this moving and impactful video by Fearless soul, five things are exposed as potential life robbers.  No matter our journey, we're all subject to these influencers and we can all find ourselves being controlled by them.

To-day, make a decision to put a stop to their life robbing intimidation and set yourself free to live the life that is available, the life that is waiting for you to open up to right now. 

Life - is for the living!

Ten Fingers, Ten Toes

By E. Elizabeth Carter

Once our parents see our ten fingers and ten toes at birth, they usually breathe a sigh of relief that we have all of our necessary body parts. As we go through life, we probably do not give much thought to these digits and toes until one gets broken or sprained. In other words, we take it for granted that they will be there for us always and will function properly.

Do you take other things for granted? Many relationships have fallen apart because we took our significant other, friend, or family member for granted. Just like our fingers and toes, we expect these people to be in our lives doing what we ask forever and not thinking twice that they could someday disappear. We can come up with many excuses why we don't acknowledge them more often and more importantly, thank them. We are too busy, we are lazy, we just didn't think to do it, and/or we assume the other person just knows that we are grateful. NOT!

Start today by thinking about the most important pe…

Brainwash Yourself In 21 Days for Success! (Use this!)

Who's controlling you?!  You might say "I am"!  But are you really?  Scientists now understand so much more about how our subconscious works and they now know that 95% of the decisions we make and the beliefs we accept are controlled by our subconscious!  And our subconscious is programmed by whatever we subject it to.  Our self talk, the messages we listen to in the media etc is what's really programming our subconscious. 

In this brilliant video by Justin Perry he not only explains how our minds are 'programmed', but also how we can programme our own minds for success.  And what we think is what we attract into our lives by way of our circumstances, relationships etc.  So, here's a good place to invest your next 14 minutes.  It can and will change your life (if you put it into practice)!!

To your success!!

How to Become a Good Thinker

By Betty Osbourne

Most people, especially those who are not as intelligent as Einstein, would want to have a boost of their brain power. If you are one of those people who want to think better, your brain power boost might be just a few steps away.
These seven steps might help you in your quest to keep your brain working perfectly fine.

Engage yourself in a Regular Exercise

Do simple exercises like a simple walk or jog. It may not be as intense as a full-blown work-out. You just have to keep your body physically fit and active.

Simple work-outs may trigger the release of neurochemicals known as endorphins. These chemicals are responsible for making us feel happy and by feeling happier, a more positive effect on the brain can be observed.

Supplement your Diet

Natural supplements with magnesium and vitamin B are believed to have a good effect on the brain. These supplements not only keep your body healthier, they also maintain the fitness of your brain; thus resulting to better brain power! Th…

How to believe in yourself: Jim Cathcart at TEDxDelrayBeach

Jim Cathcart thought he would never make a difference. An average student from a working class family with no athletic or special skills, he expected an unremarkable existence. But one radio message in 1972 changed the direction of his life & authored his belief in his potential. Today, he's a Hall of Fame Speaker, and has authored 16 books. While changing himself, Jim also discovered how to help others believe in themselves, too.

If you want to do great things you never will...until you believe you can.  The saying is a trustworthy one - we are what we think, or as the bible puts it 'As a man thinks in his heart, so is he' - Proverbs 23.7  Each one of us has the potential for greatness, it's part of our make-up and potential.  So don't you think you owe it to yourself to find out how to release it?

Better Quality of Life: How Having a Positive Attitude Can Help You Achieve It

Mitchell Carney

Usually, the term "quality of life" is used for people who are hurdling towards the finish line of this race we call life. So why am I using it now? Well, ask yourself how much time you have left. You can probably estimate how many years until you reach old age, but, in reality, there is no guarantee you will actually reach it.
Next, I want you to think back to your earliest memory. How long ago was that? I'm not asking for the number of years, I'm asking how far back does it feel? Has your life up until now passed in the blink of an eye or does it feel like an eternity?

My point is, no-one knows how much time they have left, so the term "quality of life" should be used for us all. Moreover, if it affects everyone, everyone should know - or at least want to know - how to improve it. One way to do that, is with a positive attitude. Here's why.

You have control

A lot of the time, people blame the negative events in their life for their reduced …

Guided Meditation for Detachment From Over-Thinking (Anxiety / OCD / Dep...

STOP!  Press the 'pause' button in your mind and pull the brakes on for just a second!  Have you ever noticed how life and it's busy pace can have us running around like mice on a wheel?  And it can have this effect on our minds as well.  Quite often we are in a state of mental tension and 'haste' without even realising it.  Something that's so simple can make such a difference with this and that's meditation.  Some people freak out a bit when they hear that word, thinking that it's some kind of mysterious hypnotic practice that will take over your mind.  But meditation is simply a process by which we remove our focus from all the present distractions, give our minds a relax and focus on something else, like our breathing or the sounds we hear.  It can help to completely de-stress both our minds and bodies.  Those who practice this as a daily habit attest to it's effectiveness in creating a much healthier and calmer mental state and it is known to h…

How to Use Procrastination As Practice for Success

By Tim L Latham

You might believe that success is about coming up with great ideas or doing the impossible, but most success is the result of doing the mundane. It's doing the things that no one wants to do. Whether it's losing weight, getting a better job, doing well in school, or saving a million dollars, the process is mostly unenjoyable.
In most cases, you know what needs to be done. The challenge is getting you to do it.
Dealing effectively with procrastination is getting yourself to do things you don't want to do. It's excellent practice for learning how to become successful! If you can defeat your procrastination, you can accomplish just about anything.

Consider the normal process of procrastination:

1. You think about doing something. Isn't that how you start a task? You think about doing it.
2. You notice how it feels. Every thought generates a feeling or emotion. When it feels right, we do the task. That's why it's so easy to get off the couch to get a …

Humans Are PCs

Aaron M Carlisle

Both a PC and a human being are comprised of numerous parts that work in sync with the intention of ensuring either can power up and get things done. Each runs on electricity and actively seeks to connect with a higher force that is all-knowing and invisible to the naked eye, and no two computers (humans) are the same (performance/appearance).

Now granted there are obvious distinctions between fleshy sacks of connective tissues and hardened electronic parts that most people wouldn't be able to identify if they happened to accidentally open their tower's side panel, although one must always look beyond surface details in order to fully comprehend and appreciate the capacity for parts to function so the whole can operate proficiently.
However, there are times in which the forces of entropy constrict an individual's ability to thrive in the world at large. PCs can catch viruses, break down from general wear and tear, or even fall short miserably of achieving any…

Lessons from the Mental Hospital | Glennon Doyle Melton | TEDxTraverseCity

Do people know the real you?  Do 'you' know the real you?  Most of us have perfected some type of image that we think the world wants to see.  But is this for our good or to our detriment?  If we hide the real us and project an image of something different aren't we imprisoning ourselves in a form of lie and hijacking our ability to live a truthful, free and authentic life?  In this incredibly transparent and honest talk about her life experiences and the road that led her from a life of addiction and emotional pain to a place of healing and restoration, Glennon Doyle opens the door for us to an understanding that actually most of us are 'addicts' of something, whether as a workaholic, or some other chosen 'medication'.  She shows what the thought processes are that create this state and behaviour and the road to a more authentic and truthful lifestyle that will enable us to really live and enjoy this wonderful life that we have been given!
