You Cannot Live A Happy Life If …..

If two things are missing from your life then you cannot live a happy and successful life. These are: (1) inner-peace (2) love.

Training Your Mind For Better Business and Leisure

Modern life moves at a very fast pace. At least, that is how many in Western society describe their existence whereby they rush to work, rush everything they do at work, and do so in a fixed routine which allows for little deviation. The focus is often on achieving the day's tasks, usually as dictated by employment, so to a large extent is beyond the individual's control.


Turn Negative Thoughts At Work Into Positive Actions

All of us at one time or another has become a victim to those 'little voices' in our head which fuel an emotion or event and turn it into something dark and depressing.

Listen Louder

A man realized he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but he felt unwilling to spend much money. “How much do they run?” he asked the

THE POWER TO CHOOSE

I remember the day I decided to become extremely successful. It was in my penultimate year in medical school.

The funny thing (funny wierd, that is, not 'funny - ha ha') was that without realizing it, that same mediocre mindset had permeated other aspects of my life. I felt deeply dissatisfied and wasn't enjoying myself. I was also in the habit of blaming others or external circumstances when thing things didn't go my way.


A Season of Growth

In New England, you don't need a calendar to know it's the first week of October. The trees tell the story quite well as their leaves change from shades of green to the bright vibrant shades of orange, red and yellow. At the peak of the fall foliage season, it's truly a magnificent sight that draws people from all around to behold the beauty. The season progresses and the leaves fall to the ground one by one where they become nourishment for the grass, flowers and gardens in the spring.


Your Place Or Mine?

Imagine you're standing in line at the grocery store, and a person behind you asks if they can go ahead of you. "Sure", you say. Then person after person asks if they can go first, and time and time again, you let them, even though it's now become a problem for you.
