At first, “mind your own business” might sound harsh, but in this case, it is a gentle reminder to stay in your lane, so to speak. Minding your own business, at its heart, is focusing on what you can control and letting go of what you can’t. It is taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions, and letting other people take responsibility for their thoughts and actions. So often we try to control other people, control the world around us, and control everything and everyone but ourselves.

Most times we worry too much. We worry that the other person is…


Perhaps you know a person who has acted severely to the loss of a relationship, almost to the point where you thought it was irrational. You might know someone who gets very depressed or feels betrayed at the slightest criticism. Maybe you react this way. Most intense reactions that are associated with an irrational response to loss, rejection, or criticism are the result of insecurity. …


Everybody wants to be happy, but for some people, it’s not as simple as just cheering up. When it comes to teenage angst and depression, help is out there for those who need it. With the pressures of good grades, finding friends, and an unknown future of career and school, it is natural for teens to feel angst: an overall dread or worry. Sometimes it’s just that nagging feeling, with brief moments of panic.

Despite a lot of encouragement, despite political freedoms and psychological exhortations, we suffer, still, most of us, in silence. We don’t say quite say – until…


It’s not money, it is the lack of money, which is the root of all evil. People can cross their moral limits in pursuit of money. Sometimes people forget that money is just one of the essential things not everything. We should not forget the true value of our life. We should follow our dreams and passion rather than money. There is no harm in the money. But there is the harm in the fear of lack of money. It is the fear of the lack of money, which is the root of all evil. …


Much of an executive’s workday is spent asking others for information—requesting status updates from a team leader, for example, or questioning a counterpart in a tense negotiation. Yet unlike professionals such as litigators, journalists, and doctors, who are taught how to ask questions as an essential part of their training, few executives think of questioning as a skill that can be honed—or consider how their own answers to questions could make conversations more productive.

That’s a missed opportunity. Questioning is a uniquely powerful tool for unlocking value in organizations: It spurs learning and the exchange of ideas, it fuels innovation…


How to become a better person? This is a question often asked by people who want to have a new life. Some said that to become a better person, you must be true to yourself or you must have a goal in life so that you are directed to do things positively. Others would say if you only have a determination in facing the challenges or trials of life, then definitely you will become a better person. …


Selfishness is an act that is hated entirely, by everyone or everywhere. But, at the same time, it is the reality that humans are intrinsically selfish. Go anywhere in the world, no matter how altruistic people you meet, you will find them being selfish for one reason or another. Selfishness exists everywhere. For instance, when we help needy people it gives us contentment more than than the poor. A teacher is the most respected and selfless personality whose only aim is to impart knowledge and work on the character building of his students, when his students perform good, no one…


“Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect and I don’t live to be-But before you start pointing fingers...Make sure your hands are clean!” This quote once said by Bob Marley is relevant because people judge people so quickly without even knowing them. People should never judge someone without knowing them personally or their story. People are going through all different things, good or bad, and they have no clue what those things are.

People hardly realize their own mistakes; instead, they strive to point out someone else’s. Each person is different from the…


Do you feel lost and alone? Adrift and confused about which way to go? Do you long for “something more” but have no clue what’s missing? Maybe you’re not miserable exactly, but you’re not animated and in love with life either. Your circumstances may even look pretty good on the outside. But on the inside, where truth resides, you are bored to tears, unfulfilled, and restless. Or maybe you are miserable, stuck in a painful place, silently suffering. Trust me; I know what that feels like.

All feelings arise to show you something about yourself and your life. Feeling lost…


Hey Friend. What do you want out of life? Do you have your future all figured out? If you’re anything like me it always seems like all of the people around me have life all figured out, except for me. The plain and simple truth is that’s not the case. But we’ll get to that in a moment. We always think other people have all of the answers and have everything figured out. That’s simply not true.

Someone may give you the impression that they have it all figured out, but they likely don’t. You never know what goes on…
