Why People Are Going Postal

Have you ever been, or talked to someone who is clearly upset and when asked; “What’s wrong?” insists that nothing is wrong? The more you probe, the more they resist. There is clearly something wrong but they will not open up. You write it off as being emotionally closed and eventually give up. The problem is, you are asking them to open up in a way that they have for generations been bred not to do.

How Making Decisions Relates To Depression And Happiness

Scientific studies show that people who feel they have no control over their life are more prone to depression, but people who feel they have control over their life in general are happy and positive.

Have No Regrets, Look Forward

I would like to explain why this slogan is the foundation of my philosophy. Like all foundations, there is a lot more to it than you can see, and usually a foundation is buried underground, so its real value is hidden when you look at the building. This article requires a little preamble to get our minds thinking in the same direction. The results and experiences of your life are directly connected to your thoughts, your moods, emotions and energy. Basically, your thoughts will determine the results. This is obvious of course, if you try to sell something to someone or go on a date, and you are negative or […]
