It meant that I was not good enough, and therefore should stop doing anything that I didn’t succeed in immediately.

Life on autopilot. We’ve all been there. All those days when you feel like you’re just reliving “yesterday” over and over again.

21 Things You Can Do To Change Your Life Forever – Self Improvement Article

Last night I had a dream. It was Christmas Eve. And I was receiving presents. At that time, all I could think of was “I don’t want these.

If we’re not careful, however, we can find ourselves attached more to the imagined form than the actual desired outcome. This is like placing an online order and expecting it to come in a blue box shipped by UPS. If we then receive a red box delivered by FedEx, we might not realize that it’s what we ordered, and never even open it! For example,…

Unlock Your Creativity With This Wonderful Book! – The Zen Mama’s Blog

Inspiration from the book STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST I once had an argument about creativity with someone I once knew. He said that there is no such thing as creativity.

7 Traits of Happy and Productive People at Work

Putting in long hours at work doesn’t always mean you’re productive. You’re exhausted and spread thin, and you’re probably miserable to boot. You’re only going through the motions of working. You may get the job done but your output isn’t exactly your best work.
