Optimism will give you the energy to try NEW things with confidence and strength. Without it, you will have no motivation to try, because you will naturally think that you are at a...

    Are You More of an Optimist?

    I am an optimist in every sense of the word. I see most situations in a glass full mentality, unless they are already gone too far to be fixed. My reason for this is that I believe that almost every situation can be turned to a positive with the right energy, if one desires it to be so.

    How do I get rid of negative thoughts that make me feel like giving up?

    exactly as many others on the forum have said, you can use affirmations. Tell yourself that you will do well. Tell yourself that you are great. Tell yourself that everything will be ok. Now be careful to not repeat just one phrase. Repeat the idea over and over , but with different words.

    Do You Question The Things You Believe?

    Here is the thing my friends, A BELIEF is just that; A BELIEF. If you were able to test and prove that something you believed was true and it actually came out to be true based on what you can verify with your senses, then it would no longer be a belief, it would be a FACT. For example; one...

    Like I wrote in another thread yesterday, I tried the conventional meditation, where you just sit there and try to focus on your thoughts, but to no avail. My mind would just continuing going and going no matter what I did. I didn't see the point. However, I took a course in Yoga and I found...

    Relatioships through Facebook

    I have actually cleansed myself of the facebook madness, as I found that between facebook and sms, my interactions with people were becoming impersonal. At this point in my life, i'd rather talk to you on the phone or even better yet, in PERSON, if time allows for this.

    Whats your view of online dating/meeting online?

    I've met over 50+ women online and for the most part it's been solely all about fun. If i was mature and was really looking to settle down, i'm sure I could have made at least half of those work, but that was not the case. I sometime have a problem with women professing to be who they are...

    Do You Meditate?

    I've actually been meditating since I was about 15 or 16 years old. To be totally honest, I don't feel like it really helped in any area in my life.

    If you could change one thing about yourself...

    If i could change one thing . I think it'd be my ability to focus on what I need to focus on 24/7 7 days a week. I have times when I really get side tracked. If i wasn't sidetracked and never wasted any time at all, I would surely achieve all of my goals in no time .
