The very idea that someone wants to commit suicide and die is scary. Suicide is not an easy topic to talk about. But talking about suicide does save lives. But if talking about it can save one person from it by talking about it, isn’t it worth it, especially if that someone is you.Read More
When someone has been around as many years as our parents, we forget some of the many extraordinary things they have done in their lives. We believe it is better to honor your parents and other loved ones by telling them we love them while they are alive rather than at a free uneral. One cannot choose who your parents will be. In my case, my feelings are very fortunate and proud to call them mom and dad.Read More
Let's examine three ways people get motivated. Fear has been used as motivation. For instance, you are threatened with punishment if you don't complete the assigned task. The do-it-self-method. Reward is often used to motivated people---the promise of some kind of reward given after completing the task. One motivation works better than others: self-motivation---when we do something because we want to. Then there's fear motivation which only works temporarily. If your teacher tells you to study or else you do it but if the teacher isn't around you won't. Reward motivation doesn't always work, either. Sometimes the reward isn't really worth it for us to get the work done.
Do you realize that since the beginning of time there has not been anyone of us that is a duplicate. There is no one exactly like you. You are unique. Maybe that is the reason there are things you like about yourself and things that you can do that no one else can. Some people tend to spend their thinking about wanting to look like or be someone else. Instead of thinking like that, concentrate on the things you know and can do, the things you like about yourself and develop them. Make you the best you can be. You are worth more then millions! Don't ever sell yourself short.Read More
Excitement comes from momentary motivation. It is present tense, a first date; making the team; getting a good score on a test or being named to the honor roll.
Enthusiasm begins in the present tense and extends into the future tense. It lasts throughout the endeavor until the task is completed. The first date turns into a steady relationship; once you make the team you play every day to the best of your ability; once you make the honor roll you make it again and again.
Some people spend their lives worrying about what other people think about them and spend all their time trying to figure out what everyone else expects of you. You can't possibly believe that you're doing what you want with your life when you are always walking around worried about the judgments of others are putting on you. Click here to start at the beginning of this series.
We all worry about what other people think of us. Some people worry about it so much that they never take the time, to be honest with themselves. You need to take time out to yourself and ask yourself are you happy with who you are and what you represent. Instead, they decide in accordance with other people's wishes not their own.Read More
Communication is a the key importance that I couldn't stress more on. It doesn't take much time to ruin a relationship, even a relationships that you're trying to build a connection with.

How do we learn? Anyone can learn to do anything. Do you believe it? The answer is yes. We are products of our own environment. Anyone can learn new, and change old habits through spaced repetition. Even a parrot learns to speak English through spaced repetition education. Think what could you learn and accomplish for the better in your personality and character if you can just decide to change and were patient enough to work hard until you developed a new habit. It's true! We learn through repetitionRead More
"Love is patient"
True love is a process. True love requires personal action. Love must be continuing to be real. Love takes time.
Too often we expediency, infatuation, stimulation, persuasion, or list are mistaken for love. How hollow, how empty if our love is no deeper than the arousal of momentary feeling or the expression in words of what is no lasting than the time it takes to speak them.
A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and explaining stress management to an audience with a raised glass of water. Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, "Half empty or how full?"
