Being patient is one of the most important qualities to develop if you care about personal growth. It’s also one of the most difficult. Wouldn’t it be nice if after you identified a change you’d like to make, you could just snap your fingers, and the change would occur instantly? Unfortunately, it’s rarely so easy as that, despite what marketers tell you. I remember in my early 20s, I’d often read a book on a new subject and get gung ho about applying it. Maybe it was the first book I’d...

One of the biggest challenges in trying to accomplish personal goals is that we tend to put them off until tomorrow, or next week, in favor of more pressing matters at work and home. Unfortunately, tomorrow never gets here. If you want to accomplish a goal, you have to start on it today. Finding the time to take the steps necessary is the problem, of course, as we all lead busy and complicated lives, and when we do have time, we’re too tired to do anything that requires energy or thought. We...

It’s inevitable: sometimes, life just doesn’t go your way. Your schedule gets all messed up. You fail to follow your exercise plan. Someone is mean to you. You feel like quitting something. You want to curl into a little ball and cry. Life deals out its blows, and leaves us discouraged, angry, frustrated, depressed, drained. And once we’re in that bad place, in a mood where we just don’t care about anything, it’s pretty hard to get out of it. But let me share a little secret to happiness...

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” – Lao-Tzu No matter how much structure we create in our lives, no matter how many good habits we build, there will always be things that we cannot control — and if we let them, these things can be a huge source of anger, frustration and stress. The simple solution: learn to go with the flow. For example,...

Do you accept responsibility for situations in your life or are you one of those people who notices the problems of the world and says one of the following: • Somebody ought to do something about that. • Where are the people that are supposed to be handling this? • Surely with all the tax dollars being spent, somebody is in charge of fixing this. • Why doesn’t somebody do something about that? Why not you? If you feel a strong urge to see a problem fixed, then why not act on it? Surely...

When you work for yourself, it’s easy to spend a whole day at your desk and accomplish nothing of value. This almost always happens when you aren’t really clear about what it is you’re trying to do. In the moments when you regain your awareness, ask yourself, “What exactly is it that I’m trying to accomplish here?” You must know your destination with as much clarity as possible. Make your goals specific, and put them in writing. Your goals must be so clear that it would be possible...

Here is a collection of faith quotes: “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase”. – Martin Luther King, Jr. “In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer.
