We all are influencers – Reblog

   Yes, that’s right. I believe we all are influencers even though it’s not on that macro scale other people have (especially the well-known people). It happens without us being aware of this. We are influencing the people that spend lots of time around us and I believe it is important for us to be... Continue Reading →

Humor Makes Everything Better

When you think about joy what comes into your mind first? For me, it’s a smile. Besides joy, humor can bring that same smile on our faces if not a bigger one.

Standards are Overrated

How often do you compare yourself with some random standards? Moreover, how is that comparison affecting you from an emotional point of view? What about from an evolutionary point of view? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think standards are bad, especially the ones regarding our health and our safety. The standards I’m referring to... Continue Reading →

Life is good, but…

Every but says something, but what does it say? It says that there are some exceptions from what’s before the but. If we think about life itself, is neither good nor bad. Life is a series of events.

Dealing with writer’s block…

Terry Pratchett said that there is no such thing as writer’s block. If so, how should we define the moments when it seems that our bucket of ideas is empty?

The 10,000 Rule

Happiness is…

Those are some very interesting dots because they represent different things for different people. For some it’s a fat bank account, for others it’s a walk into the nature.

Do you know your Why?

Provided by Quynh Vo from Unbound Wallflowers When I ask this question to those people around me, they reply with either “What is it?” or “You mean my hobbies?” It is hard to see one who knows exactly what he wants to do with his life and devotes all of his energy to it. You... Continue Reading →

Thinking versus Acting

Yes, we do both, but what is the percentage? How much of your thinking turns into acting and how helpful is that for you?

Daydreaming: Helpful or Hurtful?

Have you ever wonder if letting your mind free to whatever it wants it is helpful or not? Is there a line between helpful and hurtful? Studies show some interesting results.

How Powerful is Your Self-Talk?

Usually we tell ourselves whatever we want. The thing is that our repetitive conversations modify the way we think and behave. We are free to say whatever we want to ourselves, but that shouldn’t give us the permission to do it. Our self-talk influences our current and future life on several areas: similar situations trigger... Continue Reading →

The Funny side of Psychology

“How can you say that? It’s not funny to have psychological issues! You’re a horrible little human being!” Yes, I am! But psychology is more than therapy. It’s about humans and humans aren’t boring. I know because I’m part of human race (believe me, I AM). Okay, so what’s funny about psychology? Well, think about... Continue Reading →

We talk so much about motivation and how it works and how it can help us get sh*t done, but I believe we forget one thing: motivation goes away from time to time.
