Guest Post by Sue C. Smith: 6 Ways to Avoid Comparing Yourself to Others (Vita. Consilio. 05.28.17)

We are wired to compare. We compare every day. Will this pair of shoes match my outfit today or go with my outfit tomorrow? Which is the better phone? Will I get to work faster if I take the car or the train? Which restaurant offers the best tasting steak? All these questions involve comparison. Read more…

Guest Post by Megha Shah: Hustle Your Way to the Finish Line (Vita. Consilio. 03.21.17)

Over the last few years, if there is anything I have learned, it is that there is no such thing as ‘luck’.

Luck is just an excuse made by those who are unwilling to work but wish to achieve all the success there is. We all know the saying – “the only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.” This is true and must be a guiding principle for you if you wish to achieve great success in any endeavor you pursue.

Ask For the Help You Need (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 352)

“The only mistake you can make is not asking for help.”
— Sandeep Jauhar

Asking for help is quite the obstacle for many of us who are naturally independent and tend to be self-reliant. It seems to be a common denominator with the independent minded that struggle with and even suffer from our inability to ask for help. We are good, even great, at helping others and even telling other people, “if you need help, just ask me. I’m always willing to help.” But we don’t follow our own advice in reverse. We falsely think that because we can do one or two things extremely well that we can do all things extremely well and that we don’t need help. Nothing could be further from the truth. Read more…

12 Things We Tell Ourselves That Are Completely False (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 343)

“We all talk to ourselves. A major key to success exists in what we say to ourselves, which helps to shape our attitude and mindset.”
— Darren Johnson

The biggest obstacles in our lives are the ones we create. Our thoughts and our internal voices are powerful. More powerful than we realize. It directs our behavior, our attitudes, our intentions, and even our interactions. Ultimately, it determines whether we regress or make progress, go up or come crashing down, fail or succeed.

At every point in life, it is much easier to give in to lies, false realities, fantasy thoughts, delusions, illusions and magical thinking. The truth is, we don’t have to really do anything for these types of thoughts to creep in. And if we leave the doorway of our lives unguarded and unchecked, false ideas will pour in, wreak havoc in our minds and keep us back from obtaining the life we always wanted. Read more…

9 Ways to Eradicate Self Doubt (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 342)

“We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be obtained.”
— Marie Curie

At one point or another in all of our lives, no matter who you are or what your background is, we all experience self-doubt. You will have moments when your confidence son the rocks or has completely fallen apart and you don’t know if you should or even if you can take the next step. Self-doubt is one of the chiefest adversaries against progress and success. It happens in every environment, in personal and professional lives, in little league and the pros. Read more…

8 Habits of Happy Folks (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 340)

8-habits-of-the-happy-folks

“The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us.”
— Ashley Montagu

“The pursuit of happiness” isn’t just words engraved into the Declaration of Independence. It’s the core goal of almost every human being.

While happiness often depends on the happenings, research shows that our actions and thoughts dictate a large portion of how happy or unhappy we become. We have more control of “the pursuit of happiness” than we imagine. Read more…
