How to start thinking Big – Stop being realistic.

When we do not know how something is going to work out we tend to question the logic of how it is going to happen.

Your mind is working whether you like it or not. Most of the time its...

So here are some steps that I hope you will find helpful with motivation. You need to motivate yourself every day. Zig ziglar said motivation is not permanent...

The waiting just gets us to endless waiting & sometimes leads to more frustration & delay about us feeling better. As the above statement suggests, we need to take a decision about how we want to feel about ourselves. We need to decide to act confident despite having...

The very first thing to do is realize that it’s a moment of thought & that the impression the thought lays upon us is more important that the event itself. Step 2: Identify that space of silence So how do we handle this thought over which...
