Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying we should all be alone. Human beings are supposed to interact with and take care of each other. It’s life’s own design. You may enjoy being alone; there are plenty who prefer that way anyway, but I’m quite sure life is brighter when it’s lived with others.
However, learning how to be strong when you’re alone is more important than when you’d tend to depend your strength on others.
Imagine going to work … only to work. You “interact” with your coworkers but it’s only part of the job. Imagine not being able to spend some quality time with your family because of some reason. In other words, are you always tired you simply go to rest straightaway whenever you come home?
You need the support of your family and friends. But that’s not what I mean.
Wealth is everybody’s goal. Well, almost everybody’s goal—only so we can both agree that this statement is undeniable. There is the good and the bad side of living in wealth. You can start off with your dreams, which of course consist of all the conveniences life has to offer you. And certainly there are consequences you might not have experienced before; they may catch you by surprise.
Do you love money? It doesn’t matter whether you’re still on your way to financial freedom or you’re already enjoying it. I’d like to believe that our perception on money doesn’t change much from the time we started only dreaming about it until the time it becomes a reality. The main question now, regardless of many other factors, would be: What is money to you?
Insecurity comes in many forms and with different causes. Each of us lives differently, on our own, and we’re simply exposed to different environments which could be a stimulus in one way or another for any type of insecurity.
There are plenty of facets in which insecure people struggle. All of which may generally fall under career, relationships, health, spirituality or personality.
For example, you may be insecure about your career because for a long time you’ve been waiting for the promotion, or a raise, but it seems that nothing is going to change soon. Or you may not feel so confident with your significant other because you think you’re not the type who’s worth keeping. Health is wealth, but you may be fearful you couldn’t afford keeping up with good health. You may also be unsure about your spiritual beliefs and because of that, you study any materials you can lay your hands on. Do you hate some of your mannerisms? Would you consider them as a source of your insecurities?
Fear of failure is in many ways similar to fear of the unknown. To start with, they are both only a mental obstacle. Everybody knows failure is a certainly unpredictable event it can happen to anyone. Nobody can predict whether failure is bound to happen.
Overcoming fear of failure can feel overwhelmingly worse to anyone who already has a high level of the fear.
Imagine any type of fear that would make your knees tremble. Running away from that fear could be the most convenient option, considering the availability of other choices in which you can rather spend your time and energy. But what if you want only one thing in this world that would incidentally require you to overcome that fear?
Let’s agree: No matter how good you are at managing your life, you’re still not perfect. “Nobody’s perfect,” you hear most people say. It’s a simple and well-known principle, yet there are plenty of factors, both internal and external, that could lead you to just forget it.
Then you try to be perfect.
The perfectionist will tend to raise his (or her) competitive level always, which is great as it could be a healthy way to encourage overall growth, but what he fails to realize is that successful people didn’t achieve their success because of perfectionism. They achieved success despite their being perfectionists. There is evidence that given both perfectionists and non-perfectionists who have the same set of skills and talents, the perfectionists will likely perform less efficiently.
It’s the reason you keep going. It’s why even in unexpected circumstances, or when your mood isn’t quite right, or when there’s simply something bothering you which you believe will be holding you back for several days—you still keep going.
That’s right, motivation simply could fuel you into consistent action.
Sometimes we find ourselves spacing out, daydreaming, laying our eyes on almost anything. Then suddenly we feel we wish we were doing something else, something different, something worthwhile, something fun. We impulsively shift into thinking we’re not happy doing what we’re doing at the moment.
Then we start to procrastinate.
The effects of procrastination have long been tagged as a bad thing. Simply put, when we procrastinate, we’re merely told we really have no other choice but to change our ways, in the hopes of doing better for our life. But I believe this isn’t always the case.
You’re busy, admit it. In one way or another, there comes a time when you want your total focus on something. You want to take control so you can carry on with minimal or no problems at all.
Distractions are among those problems.
Everybody has their own level of tolerance for distractions. Some could be easily distracted; some seem to have been given the gift to block distractions even in the noisiest environments.
Learning is an everyday process we come face to face with and a vital part of our life. It shows new knowledge so we can basically survive, and much more, enjoy what could actually be achieved.
The value of making up your mind to learn another new lesson is priceless. But you have to make sure you’re indeed able to embrace it and it’s going to stick. In such a case, a conditioned mind may be all you need.
You’ve heard about time management. You may even still hear about it anywhere—especially at work. (Do you hear people complain how they don’t have time to exercise?)
Whatever you do, the importance of time management can never be neglected. In fact, time management is one of the skills for success you’ll ever need. Below are the lessons you’ll absolutely learn as you cut your time into blocks, whether it’s only for a few or a lot of activities for the long day. You may have already learned them the hard way, but let this article guide you in any case.
