You can't stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes. A. A. Milne
When two are of one mind, their strength can cut gold. Chinese Proverb

Discerning your career path

Discerning your career path I.

Deciding your vocation is about knowing what you really want to be, according to your true potential and the labour market's demands. It is about putting in some effort to discern objectively what you should do today, what the specific steps you must take to achieve your goal are, and finally, being committed to the task.

Discerning your career path II. What will the labour market look like in the future?

We live in times of constant and rapid change. There are three elements that cause unemployment: outsourcing, automation, Internet, and AI. The job market is likely to demand curious, innovative, and creative people that have skills in social interaction,...

The brick walls are there for a reason. There are not there to keep us out, but to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The're are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Healthy as a horse

Health is the basic resource that will allow us to be happy, enjoy life, reach our full potential and flourish, and be difference makers.

Personal hygiene

Good personal hygiene is very important and is one of the most effective ways to protect ourselves from germs and diseases. It is also essential from a social perspective. No-one likes to be close to, and even less to be friends with, a person who stinks and is very dirty.

Oral Hygiene

Brush your teeth after every meal, at least two times a day. Avoid alcohol, tobacco, snacks, sugary foods, and fizzy drinks at all cost. Visit the dentist at least twice a year.

Keep yourself safe on the road

It is better to lose one minute in life than to lose your life in a minute. When you gamble with safety, you bet your life. Broken tools can be replaced, you can't.

Kids safety and getting lost

The door to safety swings on the hinges of common sense. The world is a dangerous place, there is no doubt about it, so it is important to have fun, but always play safe! Do not accept rides in the cars of strangers. Do not use recreational drugs or abuse prescription medications.

I am stuck in a lift. What should I do?

Relax. Simply close your eyes, take a deep breath, and settle in for what's next. Press another floor button to see if it will simply go. If not, try the open door button. Whatever you do, don't try to get out on your own. You never know when a stuck elevator could start moving again

Handy tips and home remedies that work

Natural remedies might not be full bullet proof solutions, but they are healthy and also save a lot on the medical bill. The problem of over-medication is growing rapidly, and some people are making tons of money from of it. Please consult with your physician before using natural remedies, beginning any exercise, weight loss, or taking a health care program.

Healthy diet and eating habits

Healthy diet

You are what you eat. So don't be fast, cheap, easy or fake. The relationship between food and our health and performance is quite underestimated. However, what you eat and how you eat is very important for your overall performance.

Eating Disorders

Our modern society is obsessed with wealth, youth, and sexuality. There is a multi-million dollar industry devoted to making us look younger. Even worse, the new ideal woman is a pale and extremely thin person with large breasts. Models and celebrities are so thin that they look like they are suffering from anorexia.

Coping with Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders describe illnesses that are characterized by irregular eating habits and severe distress or concern about body weight or shape. Prevention is better than cure, for example, working on self-esteem with young people, based on real and constant dialogue, mutual understanding, and active listening.

Rest, relaxation and sleep

Sleep sound for a healthy lifestyle

Some people think that they don't need to sleep much, that they will have all eternity to rest, that sleeping is just a waste of time... Big mistake! A good sleeping routine is vital for a healthy body and mind, it is required by our bodies in order to recharge our batteries.

Sleep sound for a healthy lifestyle 2

What good is success if your health has deteriorated from a lack of sleep? One key piece of advise is to set a sleep schedule and establish a bedtime routine and stick to them.

Rest and relaxation

When we are faced by a stressful situation, it may happen that we respond by working harder, long hours with complete commitment, and we may also cut back on sleep and rest. This can be appropriate in certain situations and for short periods of time. However, we need time to rest and recover.

Healthy body, healthy mind

Why and how to exercise

Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. Your body is your main asset. Take good care of it! Live an active lifestyle, play sports, and engage in regular physical activities.

How to Set Effective Goals

A goal without a plan is just wishful thinking. Goals alone seldom produce results, they are just dreams till plans are made to make them a reality. Then, hard work and perseverance is the only way to achieve your goals!

Tips on happiness

Have a good day

Do you want to have a good and productive day? Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. Don't just drag yourself out of bed every morning. Get alive and awaken your mind and body for the gift of a brand new day gift wrapped with sun light, air, and your loved ones.

Fears & Phobias

Fears & Phobias in kids

Fear is an emotion, a basic survival mechanism, the ability to recognise danger leading to an urge to confront it or flee from it. You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so.

Fear of failure

Think positively. Negative results are common outcomes. These experiences are important and invaluable. They help us to learn and grow, they give us experience, and anyway, what is the worst thing that could happen to you?

The keys to success

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it. Nobody is born with innate knowledge. Everyone needs to accept challenges and setbacks, learn and work hard in order to achieve success.

Living in the present

Stop waiting for happiness to come once you achieve your goals, have a job or a property, i.e. to come around from outside, but live each moment eagerly. Yesterday has gone and tomorrow is never promised. Today is the only day that really matters. Be happy and grateful today and now.

You are not your results

What you are is one thing and the results you get quite another matter. If you fail, you are not a failure. It might be that you had a very bad day, you made a big mistake, you didn't think about the consequences of your actions, you may have not tried hard enough, you did not want it badly enough, or others have been much more fortunate and successful than you.

Leisure and success

What are the keys to success in life? A brilliant and viable idea. Stay focused on your goals without distractions. Be passionate about what you're doing. What about using your spare time to grow and pursue your goals?

Love yourself

Learning to love yourself is key to a healthy self-esteem. It is about loving yourself as you are, with all your strengths and weaknesses. It is realizing that you are worthy, irreplaceable, and more than capable. Be confident, but not cocky. Cultivate a habit of accepting your mistakes and shortcomings and try to rectify and correct them.

Effective Time Management Strategies

Time is what we want most, but what we use worst. You may want to consider the following ideas for a more effective management of your time. Define clearly and write down your goals and agenda. Make sure all or most of your short-term, specific, and measurable goals are achieved on a regular basis.

Learning to say No

Consider that your time is as valuable and important as anyone else's. You cannot always say yes, you also need time for yourself, your work, and your relationships.

Cultivate personal growth

Try to learn something new every day, take the time to improve your skills, abilities, and knowledge. Do not say that you are stuck, you've reached your limits, you have no choice, or you are too old to change. That's not true! You are better than that and deserve much more. You are only stuck if you allow yourself to be.

The secret of life is to be able to adapt and cope with anything

The past does not exist anymore, it is never too late to start again, to rebuild our lives. The future depends on what you do today! Make the most of today, a masterpiece.

Carpe diem. Seize the day!

Do not waste your time, just enjoy it. Live every moment of your life as if it were your last. We hope you will make the most out of your time, manage it as efficiently as possible. Do not let your tv, smartphone, and social media govern and ruin your time. We all need time to unplug and recharge.

Boost your self-esteem

Self esteem is the ability to see oneself as capable and competent, loving, unique, and valuable. Do not limit your potential, instead choose to challenge your limits, raise above your circumstances, and work hard to achieve your goals!

Boost your self-esteem II

Self-knowledge is the beginning of wisdom and self-improvement; without it we can’t really be true to ourselves, love ourselves, find the right partner, or live out our authentic self. You need to be able to observe and analyze reality effectively, that is, know who you really are, where your vulnerabilities lie, and what your strengths and talents are. Besides, you should trust and value yourself regardless of your job, earnings or physical appearance, as a unique, special, and beautiful individual.

Boost your self-esteem III

Being different is not a bad thing, it is something to be proud of! You are worth it! Embrace the challenge, be yourself, value who you are as a unique, special, and beautiful individual.

Everything has its time and place!

Ponder all things in life, everything has a place in the universe. You must study and work hard, there is no doubt about it. If you are lazy today, you will regret opportunities you let slip away through sheer idleness and indifference. However, if you are always overwhelmed and crazy busy because of your studies or work, you will waste your youth without enjoying life, your health will deteriorate, and your friends will forget you and move on.

If you are stressed out, simplify!

Are you stressed out because you have so many responsibilities and people relying on you, you are afraid to say “no”, you're overcommitted at work, your boss expects the impossible, and you have too many things on your plate? Here are some ways to tackle it.

Do not worry about anything!

If a problem has a solution, there is no need to worry about it. But if the problem has no solution, what's the point of worrying about it? Discern between what you can change and what you cannot. It may seem terribly simple, but it is very important and powerful.

Success is not in what you have, but who you are!

Do not be fooled, happiness is not about buying a bigger property, driving a faster car, wearing fashionable clothes, having the latest gadgets or sculpting a perfect body through plastic surgery. It is not in buying and having more. This is a consumerist race that leads to nowhere, a hurricane of stupidity in the name of a convenience that is not convenient anymore.

How to earn enough money to live decently

Money has never made people happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants. Forget appearances. Live within your means! Our spending must be in line with our income.

The richest man is not he who has the most but he who needs the least.

Some say that this argument is a big fat lie. However, money can not buy the most important things in life. You can get access to some of the highest quality healthcare available, but no-one can buy health. You can pay for sex with the most voluptuous women, but you can't buy love. You may be able to afford the best beds in the most luxurious hotels, but you can't buy sleep.

It is not what happens to you that matters, but what you do about it

It is very true that life is not simple, nor is it fair. Life is messy, it does not make any sense, it just happens. Even if you have an ordered life, you are feeling secure and safe, chaos is lurking around the corner, waiting to smack you with a dose of harsh reality. Sooner or later you'll have your share of drama. The key thing is, what are you going to do about it?

Visualization is a tool, not a panacea

Wishful thinking is one thing, and reality quite another. You should never confuse the importance of a good self-esteem and positive thinking with those who preach that we can change or recreate the real world through our thoughts alone by visualizing what we want to achieve.

Accept responsibility.

It is very important to accept responsibility, recognize when the other party is right, and also our own flaws and mistakes. This recognition is essential because everyone could see that we do not want to look good or above them, we are not moved by revenge or pride, but we are focused on problem resolution, success, and improving the quality of our relationships.

Move forward

The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward. So do not spend too much time dwelling on something, forget the "what ifs", try to temper your excess emotions, put the situation in perspective, and move forward.

It is our choices and actions that will define the person we are to become

Whatever comes our way... whatever battle is raging inside us, we always have a choice. My friend Harry taught me that. He chose to be the best of himself. It’s the choices that make us what we are... and we can always choose to do what's right. It is a quote from a film, isn't it? However, real people face this dilemma just as much.

Be positive I

It is up to you to decide if the glass is half full or half empty. More important than our experiences and circumstances is the subjective evaluation we make of them. The relationship between the perception of a situation and our assessment, and reality is not direct, but rather complex.

Be positive II

A positive explanatory style should be applied when we interact with our friends, family members, and acquaintances. As we are positive and confident about our possibilities, we should also feel positive about our friends and family members and see their true potential - no matter what problems or issues they may face!

Now's The Time For Evaluation

It is a good idea to reflect on the following points regularly. What is the best thing about you? If you have a partner, what is the most important thing in your relationship? In a working environment, what do you like and value the most about the company and your work?

Diffuse thinking and meaning

Think about this scenario: you have been informed that you have a serious disease, the diagnosis is not good, and your only option is to go under the knife, many things can go wrong. What can you do about it?

Learn to take your time

I want you to put yourself in my shoes twenty years ago. You are twenty-something and you are diagnosed with cancer. What would you do? Of course,you would follow all the doctor's advice and instructions on treatment and would think positively that everything will turn out fine.

How to enter the flow state

Flow is a state of mind that we have all experienced more than once, during which we become so involved in an activity that the world seems to fade away and nothing else seems to matter anymore. It leads to peak performance, pleasurable feelings, and emotional rewards.

How to start a business

If you decide to start a business, you need a good idea, something new, different and relevant. You must really know and love what you're doing.

Combat evil and promote good

Stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination. What is prejudice?

Prejudice is a feeling, favorable or unfavorable toward a person, prior to, or not based on, actual experience. Prejudice is an attitude. Discrimination is a behavior. They are morally wrong and unfair.

How to stop discrimination?

Be the change that you wish to see in the world. Challenge your beliefs and way of thinking, be tolerant and open to those that are different, treat everyone equally and fairly, promote dialogue, practice inclusion in every aspect of your life, and speak up against injustice and intolerance.

Prejudice and discrimination

Modern prejudice is more subtle. It is still linked to the existence of negative feelings toward outgroups, but with certain restrictions. These feelings are not of hatred and open hostility, but rather of discomfort, insecurity, and even fear that leads to avoidance of contact with the outgroup rather than the manifestation of destructive or hostile actions towards them.

Dealing With Bullies

What is it? It is the use of force, coercion, hurtful teasing or threat, to abuse, aggressively dominate or intimidate. Try to ignore and avoid the bully as much as you can. If you can take a different route and avoid him or her, do so.

Be a nice person

You are beautiful, special, and unique, and better yet, you can make the world a better place. Be sincere and honest. Personal integrity is important, not because it gets us what we want, but because it helps us be what we want.

Learn to forgive

Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness. The main victim of anger, bitterness, and resentment is you. Don't let resentment fester inside you - it will lead you to absolutely nothing but pain, misery, and anger.

Control your anger

Prevent your anger. If you are angry to the point that you cannot control it... Stop, do not do anything when you are very angry because you cannot think straight. Act only when you are calm and in control of your senses! Calm down and breathe deeply. Count to ten and think again. Get control of yourself first before trying to talk and influence others, otherwise walk away.

Competition and Cooperation

Anyone who imagines they can work alone winds up surrounded by nothing but rivals, without companions. Does cooperation make any sense or is it just a silly utopian dream? Maybe, we should always seek our own selfish interests.

Blind obedience and conformity

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

The Bystander Effect

Avoid the bystander effect: Pay attention and realize what is going on; If it is an emergency, assume responsibility ― If you do nothing, you are guilty! Approach the victim, figure out what needs to be done, and just do it. Call an emergency number if people's lives are in danger.

Anonymity and deindividuation

Traditionally, deindividuation has been associated with crowd behaviour. It occurs in situations where anonymity and reduced self-awareness lead people to show dis-inhibited, violent, anti-regulatory, and irrational behaviour.

Effective Interpersonal Communication

Effective Interpersonal Communication.

The sender must adjust his message to the receiver, context, and channel, avoid saying what is untimely, inappropriate or just plain rude, and ensure that it gets across effectively. Communication should be clear and concise.

Non-verbal communication I

Non-verbal communication is the first communication we receive from and give to another person. It gives us insights into the thoughts and feelings of a person, a more accurate information that can be used to interpret messages and meanings embedded in them.

Non-verbal communication II

The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said. Eye Contact indicates attention, interest, trust, and self-confidence. On the contrary, lack of direct eye contact signifies boredom, disinterest, dishonesty, low self-esteem and self-confidence, shyness, or even fear.

An example: A job interview

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. The job interview is nothing but a form of interpersonal communication, but how to be persuasive and effective?

Listening Skills

The human being is a social animal, and therefore interpersonal communication skills are vital to success in life, both personally, romantically, and professionally. They include non-verbal communication, active listening, dialogue, questioning, silences, etc.

Listening Skills II

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply. It is about listening without haste, avoiding distractions and interruptions, and with sincere and genuine interest. It is about asking questions to deepen our understanding, resolve doubts, etc.

Assertive communication

The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives. We need an assertive style so that effective interpersonal communication may take place. It is about feeling free to express our thoughts and ideas, being able to control anger, communicate effectively with others, compromise, and maintain deep and meaningful relationships.

Manipulative communication

It is very important to be aware of the persuasive and perversive power of advertising in our society, e.g., many companies spend big money on advertising aimed at children.

The cost of lies

Avoid telling lies because: The truth will eventually come out sooner or later, and your reputation will be damaged. Lying hurts you more than anyone else, nothing good comes from it, and people will hesitate to trust you again. A lie is like a snowball; the longer it goes on, the bigger it gets.

The spotlight effect

Most of us stand out in our own minds. Whether in the midst of a personal triumph or an embarrassing mishap, we are usually quite focused on what is happening to us. People tend to believe that more people take note of their actions and appearance than is actually the case.

Love and relationships

Love is our destiny

Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone ― we find it with another. Normally, in any relationship, both partners are attracted to what the other has and does.

Interpersonal attraction

We like those who are physically attractive to us. There is at this point a paradox or a big fat lie. Most people do not consider physical attraction to be important to have a long, happy, and healthy relationship.

First impressions

First impressions are very important because they are lasting. We ignore discordant facts or neglect adverse findings as we have aversion towards the information which is not consistent with our initial thoughts and ideas.

Dialogue

Dialogue is to love, what blood is to the body. When dialogue stops, love dies. Communication must be smooth, sincere, constant, effective, and cover all our aspirations, interests, worries, fears, and subjects, and deal with them in a sensitive, mature, and proportionate manner.

Patience

DTrue and meaningful dialogue is tough. It requires honesty and sincerity, time, and that each person actively listens, respects, and gives due consideration to the perspectives, ideas, and insights that each party brings to the table.

Sex

Love is not about sex, going on fancy dates, or showing off. It’s about being with a person who makes you happy in a way nobody else can. Sex is important, we all know that. We are sexual beings and we all crave for intimacy in our relationships. However, its importance will decline over the years.

Sincerity

Appearances can be deceiving. There are a good number of people that show an image of themselves, maybe "wearing their smile as a disguise," that does not correspond to their true personality in order to gain something (to have sex, to get married, to have company, to be successful, to hide what they are really like, etc..), and under other circumstances, reveal their true colours, a very different image that is far less friendly and nice.

Avoiding dependency

Love is not about two selfish people that only care about themselves and need each other, but two generous souls that hug one another. Love is not a cure for loneliness or an escape from the harsh reality of the real world. Genuine love is not dependency, two people love each other only when they are quite capable of living without each other but choose to live together.

Love is blind but not stupid

Before problems arise and a relationship goes too far, it is important to be rational and weigh up the relationship, its pros and cons, and see if you think it's worth the trouble.

Give the best of yourself every single day

Keep your relationship fresh, fun, and alive, value it, and show your affection every day. The more time you are together, the more reasons there are for you to show him/her that you care. Praise your partner with sincere compliments; thank him/her for all the joy s/he brings you; listen to him/her actively and empathetically; write poems and love letters; make time for dating each other, etc.

Don't give up on love

If you fall in love with the wrong person or it was not meant to be, do not regret it bitterly forever. When you let him or her go you create space for something better. Overcome adversity with generosity, optimism, and joy. It is never too late to be what you might have been, to start on a new journey, to love and be loved. The place is here, the moment is now. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness isn’t approving what happened. It’s choosing to rise above it. Forgive your partner, especially when s/he is sincerely sorry, willing to change her/himself, and fix the problem.

Active and constructive response

Listening is an art that requires attention over talent, spirit over ego, others over self (Dean Jackson). Such responses are not just for romantic relationships, they should also be used in parent-child communication, in the workplace, etc. But, what do we mean by active and constructive responses?

Accept your partner for who they are

Before you begin a serious and stable relationship with someone ― marriage, kids, moving together, etc. ―, you should really know him/her very well. Then, you should consider and meditate hard because there is a lot at stake. Do not fool yourself into believing that he or she will be different, better, or you will make him/her change.

Men and women, are we the same or different?

There is a current cultural trend of "political correctness" which claims that significant gender differences do not exist. Therefore, it is believed that pretending there are no important gender differences, we will achieve more equality, prevent discrimination, and even violence. Let me tell you, I don't think this is true. Do not get me wrong, it is very important to avoid sexist language and behaviour...

Drugs, Tobacco, and Alcohol

Drugs, Tobacco, and Alcohol

Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy your memory and your self-respect and everything that goes along with your self esteem (Kurt Cobain). Alcohol is a social drug that affects people in different ways. Let me list some of the consequences of its overconsumption.

All you need to know about drugs

1 out of 4 teens reports having misused or abused a prescription drug. Drug abuse causes poor academic results, job losses, out of control debts, and finally, family impoverishment, bankruptcy, family breakdowns, and reliance on welfare.

Oniomania, shopaholic addiction

God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables – slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need (Fight Club). The society in which we live in can be defined in many ways, such as an information society, a true global village or a consumer society.

Problem gambling or ludomania

What is it? Basically, it can be defined as pathological gambling. It is an urge to gamble continuously, an absolutely irresistible impulse to play despite being aware of its personal, social, and economic costs.

Workaholic

What is a workaholic? It is a person who is addicted to work. More specifically, work has become the centre of their life and they are ready to sacrifice everything, wife, children, family, friends, even their own health and life.

Video game addiction

Playing video games is fun and exciting. However, like most things in life, it's all about balance and common sense. Control how much time you spend playing video games, so it does not become an addiction that takes your time away from important things that you could or should be doing, like spending time with your family and friends, sleeping enough or studying.

Other addictions

Addiction is a brain disorder characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli despite adverse consequences. Addictions ruin lives and destroy families. There are a lot of addictions out there, for example alcohol, drugs, gaming, shopping, and pornography.

Privacy

Privacy

Does privacy still exist today in the age of social media and instant messaging services? Can we trust our private profiles in social networks and share personal pictures, videos, and comments with our friends and family? Can we read, download, listen, or watch illegal material because nobody is looking? The answer is clear and simple: No! Internet privacy is a myth.

Identity theft

Thieves obtain personally identifiable information by many means: hacking computer networks, information leakage, social engineering, brute-force attacking weak passwords, using malware, such as spyware, Trojan horses or keystroke logging programs, etc.

Internet is a blessing

The Internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn't understand. It has been a boom and a curse for teenagers. Who can deny the importance and impact that the Internet has on our lives and the many amazing resources that it provides us?

Avoid interruptions

The Internet is so big, powerful and pointless that for some people it is a substitute for life. Nowadays, newspapers, television, radio, and the Internet bombard us with information, communication, and entertainment at an unprecedented rate. They are a blessing, but they are also a curse, an obstacle for learning, working, and growing.

Writing an email

Adapt your message and style to its medium or channel and the receiver. For example, a personal face-to-face conversation with a friend is not the same as writing an email to your boss. It is a completely different beast. Proper email is a balance between politeness and succinctness.

Videoconferencing

Video Conferencing is a blessing for those employees who need to attend a meeting after a long, tiring, and stressful day at work or those who are in a long-distance relationship and they're still together, and yet it has its limitations and problems.

Instant messaging

Messaging is an integral part of our daily social interactions, how we express and define ourselves. Instant messaging is a fast, cheap, and convenient mean of communication. Let's see how to use instant messaging effectively.

The world is a small village. Intercultural communication

We live in a world where information can be exchanged easily and it is also increasingly interconnected, what happens "there" affects things over "here" and vice-versa. For example, the subprime mortgage crisis in the USA spilled over into the world's financial markets and real economies.
