The eye-opening decision

Believe it or not, we live most our lives blind. Of course, I’m not talking from a biological perspective, but from a perspective perspective. The fact that we live our own life has both advantages and disadvantages. The biggest advantage is that we control most of it (even more with huge courage). The biggest disadvantage...

The Psychology of Greatness

Circumstances are momentary, but your mind is always there for you. We tend to keep circumstances permanent by holding grudge against them or by using them as excuses when in fact our mind is the one that needs some attention. Things are hard or easy based on how we see them. Let’s learn from the... Continue Reading →

Can we beat homeostasis? – Reblog

This question has been raised by Natalie and I found it to be a very interesting topic to think about. I think about homeostasis just as I think about comfort zone (even though it’s a biological thing like maintaining the temperature, the level of each hormone released, the blood pressure and so on). Here is a definition... Continue Reading →

Life: Stories and Adventures

There is such a big difference between our lives and the lives other people live. This happens not because we live different lives, but because we live our life from a first person’s perspective, whilst everybody else’s life is seen from a third person’s perspective. We see and perceive other lives through stories and adventures,... Continue Reading →

Motivation through other people – Reblog

I listened to this podcast today where Tom Bilyeu talked with Ed Mylett about some interesting ideas. One of the things that hit me hard was the story about the time Ed Mylett went to the doctor. He said that this doctor had a different approach in addressing the health issues Ed had. Instead of prescribing some meds and getting... Continue Reading →

The Art of Communication

This seems to be a never-ending topic, and no wonder. We “communicate” daily, or at least, that’s what we think we do. But do we really? Lately, I got even more obsessed about the way we communicate (I didn’t think it was possible) and obviously, I started with observing the way I communicate. The main... Continue Reading →

How hopeful is Hope?

I know this is not my best title, but it does the job! So… how hopeful is Hope? No, Hope is not a person, it’s a feeling. The feeling that things will be great someday. Here’s the general opinion about hope: “Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of... Continue Reading →

The Emotional Fingerprint

Have you ever noticed that when you are “possessed” by a particular emotion, your mind reminds you of past situations when you had that same emotion? Our emotions rule and rock our world.  They are so powerful that they can control the way we think in those moments. That’s exactly way it is said that... Continue Reading →

A great technique to relax – Reblog

When we’re relaxed, our general state is more positive (have you ever seen a relaxed grumpy person?) and we’re also more open to new ideas and suggestions and that’s when changes can happen. I know there are times when we can get easily relaxed, but there are also times when it seems impossible. This motivated... Continue Reading →

Ancient Wisdom – Reblog

Sometime these days I came across some ancient wise words:    “Plant a thought and you’ll pick an action;    Plant an action and you’ll pick a habit;    Plant a habit and you’ll pick a character;    Plant a character and you’ll pick a destiny.” – Random Wise Ancient Dude or Dudette This is exactly...

As long as we’re thinking… – Reblog

We all have thoughts, right? Good thoughts, bad thoughts, crazy thoughts, kinky thoughts, sh*tty thoughts and so on. So as long as we’re all thinking, why wouldn’t we do it thinking about great stuff? It seems that we’re becoming what we’re thinking about most of the time. That’s why our surroundings are so important… whatever... Continue Reading →

Biological insights about Stress – Reblog

Most of us encounter stressful situations daily and we all know how this makes us think and feel, but what are the biological implications? What is stress from a biological point of view?    “Living in stress is like living in survival mode – they’re one and the same thing. A stressful situation is one in which the... Continue Reading →

Written by SnapDragon X. All rights reserved. Copyright 2019. My name is SnapDragon, and I have anxiety. (Hi, SnapDragon.) It sucks. But it’s true. The first time I realized the out-of-body, paranoid nervousness I felt was anxiety, was roughly seven years ago. It happened while I was teaching my high school English classes. It was...

Why do we get angry? – Reblog

Today I came across an interesting theory about why we’re getting angry most of the times. In his book The Brain and Emotional Intelligence: New Insights, Daniel Goleman talks about the fact that we have two ”bosses” in our head which controls the way we see things and we make decisions. There is the good boss located in our prefrontal cortex which... Continue Reading →

The 4 Levels of Learning – Reblog

Jordan Belfort talks about 4 levels of learning whenever we want to gain a new skill. Unconscious Incompetent (let’s call it I don’t know I know sh*t)    This is the first level of anything. When we start to learn something, we have no idea how much we don’t know. It’s like learning to play football while watching TV... Continue Reading →

Life is tough, but so are you!

As Gary Vaynerchuk likes to say, “we are tough as f*ck, but we are sold that we’re not because there is a lot of money at stake”. He is so right. In a world where money is the metrics, people would do anything to get their hands on some. Think about this based on your... Continue Reading →
