    Great list! And,yes, I believe there will be room for more...oh, life's just too beautiful to feel sad and helpless... I do most of these things especially that of making a gratitude list (which I keep in my wallet) and I just realized how long it has become! Simply having a long list of...

    How Do You Leave Work at Work?

    The easiest way I was able to handle that was to shake off the stress and tension of the work day away! I did some stretching and shaking. Even it meant that I needed to be uncomfortable doing that or if I felt lazy to do so, I just, well, start shaking my arms, legs, body (spinal column). Then...

    Positive Emotions

    I'm happy for the positive change in you, Aaron! Honestly, until now, I find it funny when I think of those times I got upset over things beyond my control like traffic, and yep... even the weather! In terms of my goals, however, carrying these positive emotions all throughout the day is what...

    Positive Emotions

    If problems or challenges seem to 'love' to interrupt me in reaching my goals, I kind of embrace them...:) I accept them, and ponder on what they are about to teach me... Aside from changing my perspective on difficult situations, I also practice EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to release...

    Positive Emotions

    Yes, we sometimes find it very hard to overcome those undesired thoughts, and usually they get the best of us. But you see, it is we who give meaning to every event and situation that happen in our lives. :) What I have been doing to shift negative into positive almost instantly is a technique...

    Success Is A Decision

    Thanks for sharing, delboy491! :) I sure can agree with you about the inevitable difficulties and distractions everywhere. I even have reached a point where a problem arises after the other issue has been overcome. I must say, it was somehow devastating. At the back of my mind I went...

    Are You Your Ultimate Self?

    I saw this in my mailbox today and thought it was apropos. And so I asked myself the same question. :) A rush of thoughts and emotions came over me and it was overwhelming in a sense that I felt really good (which was a great way to start a day!). Anyhow, my perception of 'ultimate self' may be...

    Success Is A Decision

    Success will seem to be constantly moving away from you if a part of yourself is doubtful that you can stick to it and achieve it. You would have to make an absolute, firm but positive decision that you want success. Once you've established an irrevocable 'agreement' with yourself, it will...

    Are You A Perfectionist?

    As we know, self-sabotage holds us back from ever achieving any of our goals. Being a perfectionist is an example of a limiting belief or self-sabotage. How so? It blocks you from behaving in your best interests because you're constantly being vigilant about mistakes, imperfections and...

    Positive Emotions

    Positive thinking is useless without attaching positive emotions alongside it. You would need to feel elevated when you think about your desired results as if they were already at hand. No matter how your affirmations are incredibly clear and positive, there will always be something missing if...

    It's Never Too Early

    Just when we think we've got all the time in our hands, it slips right through our fingers like water. Sooner is always far better than later. Sometimes, we depend our actions on the 'perfect moment', and so we wait... and wait... until we realize that the longer we wait for the perfect time...

    How to control your anger?

    What I'd normally do is to take a deep breath, count to 10, that 10 seconds help me process what triggered my anger, the main reason or situation (but not the person) behind the emotion. So instead of being the reactor, I become the processor. If I don't do this counting, it is the anger that...
