Whatever the circumstances, you should not deprive yourself of the joy of life. Life is for a limited period only. No one knows how long he/she will live. Why waste your precious time in worrying about the things that are beyond your control. Be happy, enjoy your life unconditionally. Bring happiness in your own life and in the lives of other people.

You Mean I Need to Promote Myself to Get a Promotion?

Time and time again I hear the following from students in my career advancement workshops:

- My work speaks for itself - I shouldn't have to tell anyone about my skills.'

People fail in life or remain unsuccessful because they do not take interest in life. Their lack of interest in life may be due to various reasons, such as, low self- esteem, lack of self-love, lack of education and skills, lack of motivation, fear of failure, misguidance, laziness, ignorance etc. I am giving below five main reasons of failure:

1. Living without purpose

Depression can come on us at any time of the year. Sometimes, holidays are the worst times for those that feel this down-in-the-dumps fear and worry and things just seem to happen to make us feel gloomy and sad. Note that this feeling happens to all of us at one time or another. How to recognize the feeling and know what to do about it is the purpose of this article.

Life is a beautiful gift of God. It is quite possible to live an ideal life in line with your dreams and desires.

Most people after reaching at this age group feel themselves miserable and worthless. They start losing interest in life and thus become victim of their own negative thoughts. Life is a beautiful gift of God and must be enjoyed gratefully and gracefully.
