By Oliver J R Cooper — Each experience that one has in life is going to play a part in how they feel. In some cases, how one feels will reflect what has taken place and at other times, it won’t. And this is because what has happened externally has triggered feelings from the past. This inner experience could relate to something that happened a few weeks ago or even a few years. This shows that there is a least two factors when it comes how one feels when something happens in their life. And what will also play a part in both of these factors is how one’s mind interprets what takes... [Read the full story]

By Rebecca Clegg — This weekend, I watched my 4-year-old nephew call my seven-year-old nephew a bully because he wouldn’t share his bouncy ball with him. He called him a bully as though it were the world’s worst insult – a bad word. The seven year old looked at him as though he had just called him an SOB. It was definitely an insult to be sure. I don’t think I had such an awareness of bullying at their age. I was kind of pleased to see that to them, bullying was an insult. By the looks on both of their faces, it was obvious that being called a Bully was something you NEVER... [Read the full story]

Learning how to raise self-esteem is vital if you intend to survive in this dog eat dog world. With the recent economic downturn, conditions are less forgiving for people who choose to wallow in misery rather than take initiative to seize control of their lives.

One just has to have an open mind in order to succeed in lifting one’s spirits and being ready to take on any potential challenges that one might come across while dealing with the daily grind....

By Dianne Lehmann — Right now, I am caring for our friend’s two cats and dog. The cats, Sushi (I’m not really sure why they named their Siamese “Sushi”, but there you are) and George, mostly take care of themselves. Their dog, Wooster, is another matter. He is old as dogs go, but in good shape. He is a finicky eater. He likes boneless, skinless chicken breasts baked in the oven, but not dried out. He is particularly fond of lunch meat (who isn’t). He will eat dog food as long as you keep trying new flavors. He seems to get bored easily. When I got home from my latest... [Read the full story]

By Barry Austin - Society is awash with products and plans for people to lose weight. Managing our weight has become a multimillion pound industry, and “weight management” has become a major topic in some circles, second only to the weather. Losing weight however must begin with you: the person who has decided you are carrying to many ponds. Once you have reached this position, you must have a plan on how you are going to lose the excess weight. Although diet and exercise will play apart in your plans, raising your self-esteem will assist you in managing your weight without too much... [Read the full story]

By Irene Conlan - I’m a big fan of the Abraham books and recordings and I want to share with you one of the most powerful self improvement tools I know that I learned from their teachings – the tool of starting where you are right now. When we go for counseling, or when we start a serious self improvement program, we sometimes think we have to dredge up all the hurts and traumas of the past. Sometimes that is needed if you have some serious emotional issues but not always. Start where you are right now. If you are going on a trip, your starting place is the spot where you’re standing when... [Read the full story]

By Ivana Pejakovic — We know low self-esteem messes with a lot of things… but very few people connect it to the sleepless nights they have on a regular basis.
