    Do you read tons of blog posts or articles that tell you how to be happy? Do you try the things they say, but afterwards still feel crappy? Well, fret not because happiness isn’t supposed to be felt all day, every day. So stop beating yourself up over it. Even the happiest people in the world have bad days.  They just accept them as part of life. True happiness results from accepting the full range of emotions, both good and bad. So build this acceptance and also your inner strength to deal with the situations that cause unhappiness, and happiness will follow. The following actions…

    Life is fleeting. Moments are there for an instant and then they are gone. Do you enjoy these moments or do you merely use them as a means to an end? Are these moments springboards to reach the next checkpoint, or are you relishing each one? It is very easy to allow the busyness of everyday to impede your enjoyment of each moment and each day. Your job keeps you busy. Your family keeps you busy. Your social life keeps you busy. It is okay to be busy when you are in tune with what is keeping you busy. But is it okay to be busy and unfulfilled, or dare I say, unhappy? Shift the manner in which…

    A couple of months ago, I made the decision to quit Facebook. Effectively right after, I stopped logging in completely. This actually surprised some of my friends. To sum up why I did it, I felt that Facebook was turning me into a depressed robot. Robot because I felt trapped in a cycle. A system if you will. I hated how I would log in just to check for "a bit" of updates, only to continuously surf my feed for more and more mundane updates to get a feel of being entertained, when I wasn't really. Depressed because I felt my feed was turning into a stream of rotten consciousness. I hated to…

On the bright side I have a beautiful fiancé, my body and mind are healthy, and every single day I’m getting closer to living out my dreams. Twenty-five years may not seem like a lot to some people.

    When it comes to making money, there are two rules I live by. Lucky for me, I learned them both when I was 12. I suppose I was like any red blooded twelve-year-old boy—I dreamed of one day owning a Ferrari. I didn’t deck my bedroom walls with posters of movies, celebrities, athletes or outer space; I had four Ferrari posters—all cherry red. One day after school I walked into my house to see my dad’s mentor, business partner and former college football coach sitting at the kitchen table with my father. He had seen my small shrine to the Red Beauty in my room…

    Do you go for a vacation now and then? Most people do. However, you cannot leave your work whenever you want, and in most cases, it is once a year, sometimes twice. There is another kind of vacation, which you can enjoy, without asking anyone for permission. You can go on this vacation almost at any time or place you want. Its effects are no smaller than an actual vacation, when you leave work and home and travel somewhere. I refer to a mental vacation. Sounds strange? No, it’s not strange at all. There are various forms of mental vacations, but one of them is familiar, and you enjoy it…

This sharp drop in the average attention span started a few years back, and it is getting momentum. The main reason for this are the internet, computers, smartphones and the social networks. There is an information overload, which is constantly growing, and is difficult to handle. If once, when you needed information, you opened a book or a dictionary.

    Being green with envy never feels good. Humans are compelled to compare everything, from the food we eat to the house we own. However, letting these comparisons control your mentality can be harmful. If you spend your days wishing you were living someone else’s life, you won’t be able to live your own life to the fullest. 1. Figure Out Why You’re Envious If you want to stop being jealous of other people, you have to figure out why you’re jealous in the first place. What is it that triggers your envy? For example, perhaps you’re envious of a co-worker because she…

    In his article The Myth of the Teen Brain (Scientific American MIND, April/May 2007), psychologist and editor Robert Epstein, PhD notes, “We blame teen turmoil on immature brains. But did the brains cause the turmoil, or did the turmoil shape the brains?” He says brain imaging studies “find that teens and adults use their brains somewhat differently when performing certain tasks” and that such studies “are said to support the idea that an incompletely developed brain accounts for the emotional problems and irresponsible behavior of teenagers.” But,…

I addressed this question about seventeen (17) years ago and remained a landlord for another year. Although this is a personal decision, you should consider certain factors before you chose one or the other. Just a few months ago, I addressed the other side of this question of renting vs. buying. I went so far to consider the possibility of renting out my house and rent another home. In this low interest rate environment, many…

    Today’s 78Essays Challenge Prompt Is: “If there were no limitations in money, resources, time, or networks – what would you do?” I often say I wish I could live at least 10 lives so I could do everything I want to do. My goals for this essay is to think BIG in terms of how I would answer this question, and then come up with SMALL ways I can get started on some of them now. After all, a big part of our life stories comes down to our habits, our rituals, and building blocks. According to productivity expert Scott Belsky, no one is born with the ability to drive creative…
  • There are 100 Days Left in 2014: A Writing Challenge

    Lauren Rains
    14 Oct 2014 | 1:39 pm
    I’m starting a 78 day blog post challenge over the next 100 days. This concept was inspired by Matthew Trinetti, who writes a blog I only recently have I had the pleasure of stumbling upon, called Give Life Explore. The title of his blog are his 3 personal values – his internal compass. This in and of itself resonates with me. His 100 Day Challenge is to “ask for something he wants” each day. This is so powerful because, frankly, those that are most fulfilled in this world are the ones who do what they want, rather than do what they think they should want. And I had…
  • Downsizing My Closet by 75% – Minimalism

    Lauren Rains
    20 Jun 2014 | 5:19 pm
    My reasoning behind tossing out 75% of my clothing is two fold. On one hand, it has a lot to do with my journey into minimalism and doing more with less. On the other hand, it has to do with my decision to change the way I dress. In terms of minimalism, my goal is to get to a point where all of my possessions, can fit in one 60 Liter Backpack (I use this for all my international travel and backpacking trips) and one very large brown box weighing no more than 40 pounds that I can easily ship around the country for around $50 – $80 depending on location. (Note – I do have stored in…
  • Kayaking Lake Atitlan and People That Experience The Mysterious

    Lauren Rains
    1 May 2014 | 7:40 pm
    The first time I saw Lake Atitlan I knew I had to kayak around all 30 miles that made up its circumference. That’s just how my mind works. I see a stretch of road, a body of water, a pathway meandering into the mountains, a shoreline that disappears into the horizon, and I wonder how long it goes for, or what it looks like on the other side, or what I might find along the way. I think it’s important to replace the fear of unknown with curiosity. It’s been the most reliable compass in my life. And sure, maybe it’s taken me down a path where I’m not always as happy…

    I MUST HAVE AT LEAST 2 OUT OF 3 OF TH FOLLOWING: 1.) Is it Enjoyable? 2.) Am I passionate about it? 3.) Is the Timing Right? I can’t take complete credit for this. This rule actually came from an Australian guy named Tom who, after 2 days of knowing me, joined me on the MicroExpedition of kayaking the circumference of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. He was currently en route taking a rest in town cycling from San Francisco, CA to Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia. As we rowed, we talked of many topics under the sun, including the website and graphics to tell the story of his trip on…

    This look at Battle Studies by John Mayer is part of my Lessons from series, these are a collection of lessons which I take from looking at everyday things a little differently. I’ve been sitting on the new John Mayer album, Battle Studies for 2 weeks now, and like the pot of pasta with a do not disturb sign in the back corner of my fridge that’s been there for the same length of time, this album has really taken on a life of it’s own. Unlike the the deadly ex pasta though this album is mostly harmless. See my John Mayer Battle Studies Review for more on the Battle Studies itself…

    Michael Fletcher
    19 Oct 2014 | 1:51 am
    There is a warmth to candlelight a warmth that’s has been counteracted in the 21st century. The cold calculated face of technology has stolen that warmth from us. We have light but Somewhere along the way we lost the wonder of light, the glow of candlelight the sound of silence competing with natures orchestra. I was reminded of my love for that warmth and the sound of that silence last week when some genius in a Coca Cola truck flattened a fairly important pole down the road from me. Plunged into darkness I found myself free. Free from the temptation of the television, free of the drone of…

    Ok now for a little rant. I have recently become genuinely annoyed with the state of the blogosphere. The more time I spend as a blogger and blog reader the more I find smaller blogs bowing to pressure of Google and it’s fascist bots. Now I’ve only got a few posts up and I spend some time on SEO writing on all my posts just like everyone else but it’s not an obsession. If my content is good and  I keep at my strategy for getting my blog out there, good SEO writing or not,  people will show up and they’ll bring friends. I’m pretty sure I believe this.

    I’ve spent the last 4 years learning Wing Tsun and more recently Krav Maga too. What’s great about martial arts? Everything about it resonates with me. From the more prescriptive traditional martial arts to the canabilistic Krav Maga and Mixed martial arts of the present. The more you learn the more there is to learn. I’ve only just started competing at 33 years young and it’s become clear that I need to bridge the disconnect between the fighting arts and actual fits and starts of fighting. The mastery of any one art is to be pursued but that’s not to say that…

    Bev Webb

    Here at Puttylike we write a lot about what to do when your friends and family don’t get your multipotentiality, but what do you do when you have awkward conversations with people who do get your scanner tendencies? I’ve been “out” as a multi-project person for well over a decade and most of my friends are used to asking and hearing about my myriads of projects. That doesn’t necessarily mean I always find it easy to talk about my work, even with supportive friends. “How’re you getting on with that jewelry collection? Have you revamped your website yet?

When you have so many interests, running your own business is a great way to utilise your multi-talentedness. As an entrepreneur, you get to explore all kinds of stuff that you rarely have the freedom to try out as an employee.

  • Direction Is Everything

    Stephen Guise
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:41 am
    Small steps create exceptional results despite seeming meaningless. Do you know their secret of success? They enable you to effortlessly change your direction. People most often look at the size of their actions (or intended actions), but the direction you’re currently headed in is far more important than that—so much so that if you only thought about your direction and pivoted when necessary, you’d do very well in life. When you’re on the couch watching TV, you’re pointed towards more mindless relaxation. When you’re lying in bed, you’re pointed toward…
  • Choose “Active Relaxation” Over Stressful Working

    Stephen Guise
    6 Oct 2014 | 2:33 pm
    Relaxation generates productivity, and I don’t just mean that in a “we need to take breaks to be productive” way. A calm, relaxed mind enhances performance while working. I call this productive form of it “active relaxation.” Relaxation and stress are counter-forces; opposites on the same spectrum. So one way to see how relaxation affects productivity is to see how stress affects it, and that’s something we already know… The more stressed you are, the worse you will perform. Increased stress on your mind drains your work stamina and hurts your…

    This is today, and it’s beautiful. Tomorrow is gross. (photo by szeke) I used to see tomorrow as my friend. If I had a bad day, there was always tomorrow’s fresh start to save me. If I wasn’t productive today, I could just get a little bit more done tomorrow. Whenever today wasn’t perfect, tomorrow still had the possibility. Anything could happen tomorrow! But as time went on, I saw the red flags. I realized that tomorrow is like a friend who always stabs you in the back, but you don’t notice because you assume a friend wouldn’t do that to you. Well,…

Many of us, myself included, let fear control our behavior more than it should. This is not news to any of you, but have you thought much about the role of permission in that?

  • Why Anyone Can Be Confident

    Stephen Guise
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:07 pm
    Studies show that people who are moderately overconfident benefit from it. The reason? They act according to their overconfidence, which brings them more opportunities to meet that standard. Others may have a more realistic point of view, which acts as their ceiling. Thinking realistically isn’t even logical anymore. A guy tightroped across Niagara Falls. A blind man scaled Mt. Everest. People have been doing unrealistic things forever. So maybe realistic doesn’t actually mean realistic. Maybe realistic means average. You can see there’s a benefit in having confidence and…

    Chinese Kung Fu Martial Arts Video In all the years I’ve been training in martial arts, I’ve never released a video on my Chinese kung fu martial arts forms.  Most of the focus on my publicly released martial arts videos has been on my various karate weapons forms. During my competition career, I was one of the few competitors who competed in different martial arts styles including Chinese styles known as ‘soft styles’ because of the more flowing techniques compared to the more linear ones in ‘hard styles’ like karate and tae kwon do.   A significant…

The camcorder was sort of facing the direction of the sunshine at that time so there was an effect of a silhouette on my body.  The video footage from this distance was not used at all for the first bo staff video.  So this second video along with a different music sound track will give my karate weapons bo staff form a slightly…

I also wanted to do such a new video in a nice location.  My past video of my bo staff…

    14 Oct 2014 | 5:42 am
    Who knew that I would be fasting! It’s funny how life moves sometimes. It’s true that we can never know its ways and how things will unfold – our only responsibility is to state what we desire and then stay true to the Truth within us that always leads our way. This transition happened almost overnight when I decided that I would change my morning rituals. I decided that instead of coffee and emails in the morning I would go out jogging.  It’s wonderful to go out when the sun is rising and there’s almost no other people outside yet and there’s the beautiful…

    7 Oct 2014 | 2:32 am
    Whatever challenges we might be facing in life is not who we are. We have the power to transform ourselves the moment we become aware of the meaning we choose to give to our circumstances in life. Any kind of endings, like for example a divorce, bankruptcy, health problems etc, whatever it might be, we also have to remember that in the circumstances there’s also a powerful new beginning. In the new beginning, however it looks, there’s space for new intentions and new possibilities that would not have been visible for us when we looked at the world from where we were before.

    “Positive thinking” is not enough to ‘change your life’.

    Turning self-defeating Beliefs into Empowering Questions Becoming aware of our thoughts and beliefs can help us change them. On page 82 in the book ‘Super Brain’ by Dr. Deepak Chopra & Rudolph E. Tanzi self defeating beliefs are referred to as software programs, but “they are even more pernicious since they dig in deeper with every repetition.” The book lists 6 beliefs and I have turned some of the suggestions to turn these around into questions. 1. It’s all my fault Why do I focus on a solution? Why is fault finding pointless? 2. I am not good enough Why am…

One of the aspects of the games that appealed to me was that it builds resilience in four areas: mental, emotional, physical and social. Jane says in her short video intro to the Super Better game “Study after study shows that resilience is the single most important personal skill you can develop — if you want to be happier, healthier and more successful in whatever you do.” In the…

    15 Oct 2014 | 9:22 am
    Have you ever taught a baby how to walk? According to BabyCenter, most babies take their first steps between 9 and 12 months old and walk by the time they’re 14 or 15 months old. Some babies take longer, walking only when they’re 17 months old, though it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with them — it’s simply different babies needing different time for development. Now, imagine you’ve a baby (for those of you who are already parents, no imagining needed here), and it’s now 9 months old — in its learning-to-walk phase. (For…

    Dear Celes, I am a 25-year old man. I am facing the biggest crisis in my life as I am going to get married. My brief background would make it clear. When I was a kid, around 10, my female cousin (around the same age) and I would sleep together. On one such occasion, her hand accidentally touched my thigh and felt something bulging. She asked me what it was. In my child-like, innocent enthusiasm I opened my shorts and she saw my erect p****. She got excited and started rocking it, saying that she had now seen my ‘shame-shame’. Later, in the same excitement, she told all this to…

    Have you ever wondered about the origins of modern humans? Where did we come from, how did we originate and what was this “missing link” element all about anyway? Somewhere back in the early 2000’s my curiosity got the better of me. Many of you already know that I have read well over 700 books beginning around 1997. I mainly read personal development books back then because that was what I was in to. After that I read a lot about religion and spirituality and channeled messages like Abraham-Hicks, The Seth Material and A Course in Miracles. From there I delved into metaphysical topics…

I can’t even recall how I stumbled upon Monster Mania Con, but the first time I went, back in 2005, left a lasting impression on me. It was surreal to be in a room full of dozens of my all-time favorite horror movie icons. So much so that I make sure that I go every year.

    Procrastination. It stands in the way to your success. But you are not alone. For years I thought that systems and creativity don’t go hand in hand. I was so wrong. Without system, without routine, you won’t get much done.  It wasn’t logical and it didn’t make any sense, but now I know that there is an enormous power. Anything and everything can be broken down into a few small steps. Actually, rather it must be. In 2011, John Maxwell showed me his thinking chair (a place where he thinks, reflects and put ideas together for his books). At that time I though, what a…

I also think that it is important to never stay still, because the movement, the trial and error shape our journey and open the doors to the next levels. Let me give you an example.

Although this does not happen in every single relation but majority of relationships experience this pattern, which is quite painful.

Sometimes partners fail to realize that their mutual talks on sex are of vital importance to keep alive the flame of love and romance in their lives. To make an intimate relation more special, equal participation of the partners is required. However, to play the equal roles a man should know his beloved’s requirements and the woman should know how to satisfy her man to the fullest because the sex needs of a woman are different from that of a man.

    In July of 2011 I hit the lowest point of my life. I was 170 pounds overweight, I was at a job I absolutely hated, and I lived in a place that made me worried about my family’s safety. Oh yeah, I owed over $100,000 to the IRS (almost forgot about that one).One day that July I was sitting on the couch crying as everything came crashing down on my head at the same time. The straw that broke the camels back was my wife and I separating. Everyday we fought about everything because of all the problems I brought into our lives. I sat there that day with the TV on not really thinking about what I…

    As I turned the final corner I could feel myself breaking up… breaking up in tears that is. It was an amazing feeling. I had dreamt of this moment for a while now.There was still about 500 metres to run and I now had a tunnel of spectators cheering me on from both sides. This is it, I thought. The moment I had been waiting for.My legs were screaming in agony and my mind was slightly dazed but extremely focused on the goal that was now in sight. All I wanted to do was walk but I couldn’t walk now… not now… not after 42km of pain and agony and with only 500 metres to go.I continued…

    One of my biggest struggles in my day-to-day life is managing my priorities. And by that, I mean I take stuff wayyyy too seriously.Car bill due? I’m thinking about it all day. Carpet to vacuum? Also on my mental to-do list.Some people think that keeping these kinds of daily priorities in your mind is an act of mature responsibility. I know I used to.But, more recently, I’ve been made aware of just how limiting that kind of prioritization can be. Not just to your mental health and your happiness, but it can limit the happiness of important people in your life.If you spend all your time…

    Sometimes people make light of the idea that each of us is a “special snowflake,” but guess what? It’s true. There is no one else exactly like you in the universe, and there’s no one else exactly like me either. We each have a unique way of doing things and a form of expression that no one else has. This uniqueness provides each of us with a rare and priceless opportunity to provide a unique gift to the world. Even when we do work that is similar to others’, our presentation and expression is guaranteed to be different. The Dagara tribe in Africa understands this concept well.

If you are striving to do new things or pushing your boundaries, it can be difficult to stay confident, even if you’re usually a confident person. Unfortunately, confidence doesn’t just show up at your door one day, even though you may wish it would. In fact, confidence comes from trying new things, overcoming fear, and reaching for your dreams.

It is a matter of knowing to stand up once again after stumbling or faltering.

First, was the ever-popular Azonto which originated from the Kpanlogo traditional dance of the Ga-Adangme people in Ghana. Azonto took flight and people all over the world accepted, loved and enjoyed this dance. Internationally, Fuse ODG, a Ghanaian born UK based award winning artiste, released the ever popular…

But like anything in life if you don’t have skin in the game, it won’t really make an impact on you. Preparing for the No Complaints Challenge Start by going to a store or the bank. Get ten to twenty dollars in single dollar bills (or equivalent currency). Try to get the crispest freshest ones, mostly because they just feel cool and smell amazing. Now, that you have your stack or roll, go on about your day but be wary that each time…
