Stress Relief?This article really caught my attention as I can completely relate to the content. If you live and work the city lifestyle, the chances are that regular alcohol consumption is regarded as the norm.

Rules Of Success – Steve Jobs

Rules Of SuccessIf you ever wonder what makes “successful” people, successful (in the eyes of society), here’s a great place to start. In this short video, Steve Jobs explains a few simple rules of success. He mentions how passion is imperative to succeed as without it, people give up.

Is Perfectionism Linked With Procrastination?

Perfectionism?This article grabbed my attention in a BIG way! I strongly believe procrastination is what stands between most people and true success. Every single one of us has ideas, it’s just that most people procrastinate about them whereas “successful” people take action. I put successful in quotes as success has a different meaning for different people. Fear of failure is the common force which stops most people from taking action or limiting beliefs – which is essentially the same thing. [Read more…]

Our Success Is Dependent On The Stories We Tell

Ask The Right QuestionsThis article really caught my attention as it’s something that I can totally relate to. I used to say things like “I’m a starter, not a finisher – which is why I struggle with focus” – if you say something enough to yourself, you’ll live it. In the words of Henry Ford “whether you think you can, or you can’t, you’re right.” This is an insightful look into the world of the stories we tell ourselves and how our success is dependent on the stories we tell from Psychology Today. If you say to yourself “why can’t I focus?” – guess what will happen!  [Read more…]
