You Gain Strength Here is another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae.

We can’t help it. It’s human nature.  For a moment, just pull yourself out of the situation and think about it. Try to steer your thoughts in a positive direction. It isn’t easy to stop doubting yourself for any reason, but it is so worth it when you do. It’s a hard habit to break. But once you start thinking positively more positive things will happen in your life. It isn’t an immediate response though. You just have to believe that the more positive you think, the more positive the outcomes of your endeavours will be. It’s not going to be an overnight phenomenon. Sadly it takes time. But

Finding and Keeping Good Friends

Finding and Keeping Good Friends Wendy Mason  is a Career Coach and Life Coach helping you to solve difficult problems at work and at home. Finding and keeping good friends has two parts to it What draws us to people What seals the friendship What draws us to someone? We meet lots of people in life but for most us very few become frends. These seem to be the things that draw into becoming friend with people. Shared interests and values We usually need to find we have something in common with people in order to become friend. This is usually in terms of the kinds of things we enjoy doing and what we believe to be important in life. If I am very interested in sports and you are very interested in, say, looking at paintings, then we may struggle even  to start a conversation that holds our interest. Likewise, if we believe completely different thing about what is important. Of course, our tastes may change over time and after the friendship is formed. S

But you can work yourself into a place. If you want it bad enough, you can do it. That has always been a fact of life. You may not get it perfect first time, although you want to, but you will get to where you want to be.  Life contains a lot of try and fail experiments, you may fail a million times but it only takes one second to change and a doorway will open in which you can succeed. Never stop chasing that dream, because you never know. And if you don’t try, you’ll never know. So don’t give up at the first hurdle, because it only takes a minute change to change ev

Different! We are all idiosyncratic!

Different! We are all idiosyncratic! Here is another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog  at   www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk   and I think you will be inspired by Steph's videos on YouTube at  http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkoz1yev_apPjE8XcVrjyjA/videos  We are all idiosyncratic, which is just a big word for a bit different. We all have stories to tell and how we choose to portray ourselves says a lot about who we are. We all have different stories.  If we all had the same struggles and issues how boring would that make life? I know sometimes it’s frustrating that people won’t or can’t understand what you’re going through. But that’s all right. They are living out their story with their own obstacles to overcome.                                                                                  Life is all about reciprocation.

Dealing with Disappointment

Dealing with Disappointment  Wise words in the video from  Elena No Braina  who discusses how disappointments are a necessary part of life that teach you to keep pushing and follow your ambition. Stay in the game! Above all, know that you are not alone. Disappointment happens all the time in life and learning to deal with it is a key life skill. But if you find yourself getting in stuck on the downward slope, find someone to talk to – either a trusted friend or a coach like me. Now onwards and upwards – it is good to keep occupied rather than ruminating on what has happened. The world is still full of possibilities. Don’t miss them by taking yourself out of the game – commit to bouncing right back. Don’t forget I offer a free half hour coaching session by phone or Skype.

Work-Life Balance - Work Is Also Life

Work-Life Balance - Work Is Also Life Another perspective! Speaking at the Alumni meet of the INSIGHT 2012 Business Leadership Program, Sadhguru answers a question on work-life balance. Sadhguru reminds us that work and life are not different. Instead of "working" five days a week and "living" two days a week, it is better to live seven days a week he says.
