Some people have been in pain for so long that they have forgotten what it’s like to feel good.

Vincent Guth

When you’ve been through a tough situation, especially when you have for a long period of time, you become desensitized to how it makes you feel.

At first, you know right away that it sucks. But over time, as you resolve yourself to get through it, and you invest all your energies to getting through it, your attention shifts away from the pain, and toward the solution.

As this happens, you tend to forget how feeling good even was, and how…

It can be comforting to think that you have full control over what happens to you.

Most people live their lives that way.

The only issue is that when you do, you are never quite ready for what’s coming at you.

You may think you know how things ought to be, but the way they actually come is sometimes far from what you were expecting… And sometimes better, sometimes not.

The difference lies in knowing how to handle these things when they do come at you.

Sometimes it can be difficult to be in a new situation. …

If you’re having trouble generating blog post ideas, these ten tactics that we use will ensure that you never run out.

1) Read. A Lot.

every time you read, you fill your mind with awesome ideas that you can use to make your writing better. By reading books by authors you like or are relevant to what you write about, you’re exposing yourself to new writing styles and little nuggets that you may use in your blog posts.

2) Get Into the Habit of Taking Notes

When you are reading something, watching something, or even talking to someone, make…

Things don’t just happen out of thin air, although a lot of people may think they do.

In a world where millions of people are producing creative content every day, it can be easy to get caught up.

The creative process takes time, and a lot of the time multiple people working together at it.

Whether you’re just starting out, or have been working in a creative field for quite some time, you know how difficult it can be to find the right story that’ll connect with the right people.

The creative process needs to be enjoyable, otherwise, it’ll…

It feels like these days, everybody has a different opinion: should you be obsessed with your work, or take it easy and find balance.

This is the good old adage saying that you shouldn’t invest all your time in one thing, lest you miss out on everything else the world has to offer.

By keeping your mind open, you’re keeping your options open and allowing yourself to see what options may lie in other pastures.

But when you’re obsessed, you’re only looking ahead of you, at the next step, your next goal, you’re everything.

So which is the correct way…

When I was younger, this concept never even crossed my mind.

Ayo Ogunseinde

I didn’t have to show up for things because my parents would always make me.

When I got a bit older, this concept started to make more and more of its way into my life: having to show up for class, exams, and fencing practices.

Today, this concept pretty much runs my day-to-day life. Everything I do and the success that it brings is predicated on how much and how well I show up to perform.

If I’m off one day or lack the motivation, it can become difficult…

Life is known to always have something to keep things interesting.

It’s one of those things that we all know is true: sometimes we got to deal with life’s problems.

And sometimes these problems seem insurmountable.

That’s where this strategy comes in.

The first step is to pinpoint what the problem is.

Is it something that has to do with an event, other people, or is it something psychological?

Once you know the nature of the problem you can go ahead and as yourself: “Is this something I can do something about, or is this something I can’t do anything…

These words have changed my life. And I’m hoping that they do the same for you.

  1. Resilience. When things get hard, this is all you need. Resilience is what will make or break your chances of success. It’s fascinating to me how so many events and feelings could be summed up in this one word.
  2. Focus. When your focus is off, everything else seems to be off as well. When you’re focused on something, it grows. There’s something truly magical about focus.
  3. Life. This word means everything to me. It’s the beginning, the end, and everything in between. This word…

Many people would say that the future holds everything.

Drew Beamer

When you look forward to the future, life seems greater, grander, more extravagant. You picture yourself having everything you want and hanging out with everyone you’ve ever wanted to hang out with.

I know that’s what I do.

The future seems so real, it seems like it’s the be-all-end-all and that it will make it or break it faster than you ever know. Like it’s the only thing you’ve ever worked your ass for. And you do work your ass off for it.

Every day, you slave to make tomorrow better…

Most people know that money isn’t the be-all-end-all. But for some people it really is.

Sharon McCutcheon

They say money won’t make you happy, but it’s necessary for everything you want. So it goes without saying that people will do what needs to be done to get their hands on that good good.

Thing is, it’s easier for some people than others to make money. And while most people are struggling to make ends meet, many people are making lots of money doing what they love. And this is great.

Doing something you love is a privilege that so many people are…
