Life gets harder by the day, some will say it gets easier but it sure doesn’t feel like it. What are you supposed to do when you have all this pressure on you to be successful or to reach your goals within a certain timeframe?

The feeling of pressure is not only a burden you have to carry with you but it gives you constant anxiety. With too much anxiety on your plate, you could end up falling into a depression. Isn’t it crazy how a feeling like this can be so impactful on your life?

If the pressure is…


You can either complain or adapt

New environments can be scary, it’s not something you’re used to, and the uncomfortable feelings the environment gives you, make you want to complain.

Being able to adapt to new situations and new circumstances is an ability that all humans are capable of using but it may take longer for some than others. As humans, one of our best abilities is to adapt and we need to start taking advantage of it as much as possible.

Look at the start of the last year 2020 to the beginning of this year 2021. When first hit with the pandemic, many people…

Do you think you’re having enough productive conversations in your life? A lot of the conversations that you’ve been having are probably about small talk and things you could care less about. This is the type of conversation you want to avoid and learn from at the same time.

Having less small talk with other humans should be a goal that everyone should have. Even though this goal sounds simple, we’ve taken on small talk to be part of our everyday lives.

Sometimes we do it to avoid awkwardness or sometimes we do it because we think it’s the right…

Your blogging career is just starting and you think you have what it takes to make it. You probably do have what it takes but do you have the mental toughness for it?

Blogging is not all about your hands on the keyboard, it’s about using your mind as well. Creativity and knowledge are key when it comes to writing a good post.

Anybody is capable of writing about these two things but people like you are really good at it. If you want to be a well-known blogger then you may want to get comfortable with the idea of…


What is your heart really trying to say?

It’s the easiest thing to do but we all know for a fact how much inner wisdom we can spread out into the world through our words. We’ve all been through different experiences in our life so when we see someone going through something that we’ve gone through, we just brush it off and say to ourselves that “they’ll be alright.”

Do we ever stop to question ourselves if they’re actually okay? Sometimes we care so much about a person that we say anything to put them in a good mood or at least try to. …


Hard work is subjective but only you know how hard you can go

People are able to work harder in certain areas in their life than others which makes the term “hard work” a bit subjective. It’s a saying that we’re all too familiar with, especially as adults because we’ve been hearing it all of our lives.

“Work hard and you will get what you want” or “Work hard and anything is possible.” The older we get, the more understandable these cliches seem to become.

We misjudged the effect they can have on our lives when we were younger and are now really treating them as life lessons. It’s something you may try…


Who doesn’t like a good parable?

There are many books to choose from nowadays and there are many genres as well. Even if reading isn’t your thing, you can still appreciate a good book when coming across one.

What’s the last good book you’ve read? It doesn’t really matter what age you were when you read it, that book stands out to you for a reason. Some of the most cherished books of your childhood may have been books based on fiction or that told a good story.

Which do you prefer now in your life, a book with a good story or a book filled…

It’s okay to not know what you’re good at, there’s actually a lot of people in the same boat. In reality, almost everyone thinks about this sometime in their life and doesn’t have an answer.

Many of us have experienced this confusing question when being asked directly “What do you want to do when you grow up?” This was then followed by an “ I don’t know,” which then led to the question “Well, what are you good at?”

The possibilities of what you can do to impact the world are infinite and your potential to do any of these…


Focus your energy on things that give you the most joy and opportunity

We take energy for granted at times due to the fact that we always have it. There’s the energy that you give off into the world and then there's the energy you have within yourself to use for work and other activities you do.

Have you ever thought about how much energy you put into something when you were happy? Usually, when we have a genuine laugh at something we’re watching or with someone we’re talking to, we’re focused on that thing or person very intensely.

We may not realize how focused we are but that subject has our attention…


Be excited about your undetermined future

So you don’t know where you’re going to be in the next five years…what are you going to do about it? The future can be a scary thing to think about and it causes us to have constant anxiety for what’s to come. Even though we’ve overcome so many obstacles in our lives we still worry about the ones that have yet to come.

When discovering our passions or a side hustle that we’re really interested in we don’t realize that life will try to challenge the plan we have for those things. …
