Self help books can really be a hit or a miss. Granted, some are amazing. I’ve read ones that have changed my life for the better. But many are filled with woo advice that has never actually been proven to work. These end up being more frustrating to read than genuinely helpful. I’ve become a bit of a skeptic the past few years. I take most advice with a grain of salt, and generally take a lot of time to process things before putting it into action. Admittedly, I’m naturally pessimistic. Constant joyful optimistic can grate on me, because it makes me wonder- what’s the catch?
Are you looking for some positive quotes of encouragement and hope? You are not alone. Even if you feel like you are, I promise it’s not true. But I understand the feeling. It’s been a really challenging year, and it’s easy to feel super isolated by your emotions. When you’re going through a hard time, it’s natural to feel alone. Why? Because if you consciously recognize that there are millions in the same boat, it almost makes it feel more hopeless. So we remain alone. Blissfully ignorant. But at the end of the day, it’s important to find community when we’re struggling. Even if it makes us realize how truly chaotic the world is.

It makes more of a difference than they realize. We are creatures of habit, and we get stuck in behavior patterns very easily. What starts off as one lazy morning becomes a lifetime of issues with motivation. That is why it is so important to grab a notepad for this one, and make the commitment that starting tomorrow you will make building a morning routine a priority.

Does house work seem impossible these days? I’ve been there. Some days, I’m still there. We all go through phases where it’s easier to be productive, and phases where it’s infinitely harder. When you’re depressed, it’s like climbing Mount Everest with no oxygen tank. That’s because depression is an endurance exercise on its own, even on the easiest days.
What are your goals for the future? Are you trying to make more money? Get a promotion? Find the love of your life? Goal setting is a huge part of who we are as people. And our goals are about as different as we are. We’re (mostly) ambitious, results driven people, always seeking the latest …
What does self awareness mean? For way too many it is the Ark of the Covenant. The Crown Jewels. The Holy Grail. It is that unobtainable thing that they’re simply left to marvel over, but never possess. What they might not realize is that it’s not a mythical concept. It’s something that everyone can have, …
“Empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another and feeling with the heart of another.” – Alfred Adler
