How many beefs have started over complete misunderstandings? I would imagine more often than not, these are how they start. Then we jump in and fire back, which makes it worse. The cycle continues until it is resolved in one way or the other. There is a famous quote by Viktor Frankl:“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is …

We all get overwhelmed at times. Sometimes it gets to the point where it causes inaction. Everything seems to be occupying your mind at the same time.

Negative thoughts are very common. There is research that says that our brains look for negativity for survival. Back when we were in the food chain, we had to pay attention to things to avoid becoming some predator's meal. Now, we have less concern about this kind of thing, but our brains are still the same. Negative stress and anxiety often comes…
 
Often times we try to do something and set ourselves up for failure because we "try" to do it rather than commit. It seems like a subconsious way of giving ourself an out in case we want to give up.

In chapter 1 of How Successful People Think, John C. Maxwell mentions that our ideas have a short shelf life and we need to act on them before they expire. He quotes World war 1 flying ace Eddie Rickenbacker “I can give you a six-word formula for success: Think things through—then follow through.” How many great, potentially life changing ideas do …
 
The line between order and chaos is very thin. There is no avoiding chaos. In fact, the more you try to avoid it, the less prepared you will be when it comes. Making everything safe may not be making us safe. It may be leaving us very unprepared and not mentally tough enough to overcome adversity. Enjoy the times of order, but prepare for chaos eve…
 
The idea of don't break the streak or don't break the chain is a simple but powerful concept. It's about creating a streak of wins. If you're trying to build a skill, or form a habit that will benefit from daily activity, every day you complete that activity is another link in the chain. The longer it gets, the more motivated you'll be to not break…
 
Establishing core values is a fairly common thing in the business world. It’s a vital tool in creating and maintaining a strong company culture. Less common is establishing them for your own personal life. We all have them to a certain degree, but few of us have them written down and revisit them often. Some people use the shopping cart analogy. Pu…

Solutions for their issue comes easier …
 
I came in a little hot on this one, but this is getting out of control. Have you ever thought about how much money is being made off of people being fat, sick and lazy? We're programmed from a very young age to desire terrible ‘food’. Look at the messaging on sugar and chemical filled cereals, kids menus, sugary drinks, etc. and this carries over i…
 
If you objectively look at your thought patterns, constantly shifting from one thing to another, it’s difficult to conceptualize how we can have any peace with the voice always on. Imagine this was an actual person with you all day, every day saying these things out loud. How much time could you spend with this person? There are ways to give yourse…
 
We know that anything we do has the potential to not go the way we intended. It often catches us off guard and negative emotions can come from it. One thing the stoics teach us is to take some time to acknowledge that things can go wrong. Rehearse the possible outcomes in your mind, then if these things do happen you’ll be more equipped to stay cal…
 
We have countless things pass through our lives every day. When driving, we'll see trees, cars, buildings and all kinds of other things that pass in and out of consiousness. Once they're gone, we don't think about them again. Then something sticks. It doesn't pass through. Maybe something that bothers you or triggers a bad memory. We hang onto it, …
