    Think and Grow Rich; stuck on #2

    @Kevology, how old are you if I may ask? Because if you're under 30, you just need to try stuff. There are numerous ways to find out what you like do to but the most important thing is that you just need to try a bunch of stuff for a short period of time and then figure out where you want to...

    What is Personal Development?

    @tomokila You pretty much summed it up. I only would like to add emotional intelligence as in the sense of self-awareness and your own emotional management. All the best, Mick

    What do you do when you have not achieved your goals by the deadline you set

    I think most people don't have clear why they have their goals in the first place. That's why many new-years resolutions fail. It sounds like a great idea at the moment when you feel really motivated. But motivation doesn't last. If you want to lose weight, why do you want to lose weight...

    My Sources Of Understanding Myself

    @VEM, Thank you for sharing those lessons with us :) Just like @MoreSuccess, I resonate with what you said here: Every person has something great within, but also a darker side. If you can observe many different people from many different backgrounds and are able to find the golden nuggets...

    Discover 3 Simple Strategies How To Overcome Fear

    I would like to add my 2 cents on this. Fear is a protection mechanism from the brain that tells you that there's some sort of danger. A danger to the brain means anything it isn't confident with or used to. A gun to your head would obviously trigger fear. Speaking for the first time in...

    Hi guys, my name is sirus and am just looking to put my self-development back on track

    @Sirus You're welcome my friend. As for not knowing what you want, I'm a huge fan of just making a list of things you consider let's say 10 different things, you then pick the 1 that you would love to try most. Then just do it. If it turns out that you don't like it as much, you go to the...

    How do you relax or have fun?

    Hey @Jay Just a suggestion - have you ever tried Chess? That's a pretty interesting game to improve your brain as well. It requires patience to figure out each move though, but if you've got that patience, it's a really fun game. There're a few other games like chess like the Chinese Go or...

    Is it just me or girls are really confusing?

    Very well description over here. I agree that when we communicate with each other while one is on the intellectual frequency and the other on an emotional frequency, a disconnect happens indeed. All the best, Mick

    How to deal with workplace boredom

    Hi @justinprovement It's so awesome to hear that you take pride in flipping burgers. I think the problem is that people don't take pride in what they do and just take for granted that these opportunities even exist today. It's also amazing that you're allowed to listen to audio while you're...

    Hi guys, my name is sirus and am just looking to put my self-development back on track

    Hi @Sirus, That's some great self-awareness you've described there. As for getting back into the good habits, what are the times that you used to practice this? As for procrastination, the advice would be to just do it, but that's pretty clear. What has helped me to overcome procrastination...

    When the realisation hits, you gotta take action! Hi, my name is Charlotte!

    Hi @AuzuParslas Yes, you're probably right. I think this is because it's a never-ending struggle haha. Every time I seem to have the things balanced the way I want it, I still don't feel like I spend enough time on other things, or new things come up all of a sudden. I suppose we should...

    Live your dreams , or other people fears?

    Most people keep you down because they can't get up. As for parents, most of them want to see us succeed with the rules that worked for their lives. Breaking free and running your own show is definitely what you should do. Now I can have a whole rant about exactly that, but I think that Gary...

    How to get over the past?

    Great discovery @AuzuParslas! I have something similar here. When I moved to Australia for 2 years (initially just a short period of backpacking that turned into 2 years) I was happy and met great people. Right now I'm back in my old little town which isn't great haha I think it's a great...
