I Did It All By Myself (We Can Learn a Lesson in Acknowledgment From Our Children)
“I went to the potty by myself!,” “I tied my shoe-laces,” “I cleaned my room without being asked!,” “I’m running for class president,” “I asked someone to the prom,” “I got accepted to college!” Many of these declarations are met with enthusiasm by us. But, what is even more important than the feedback they get from us, is the internal acknowledgment they give to themselves.

It’s Thursday and it’s the last minute of the day’s work so 5 minute of relaxation isn’t that bad I believe. While finishing my last minute-coffee for the day, I can’t help but to wonder how many rubber bands I used for the past days for piling. I also have my rubberized stress ball just within my reach, very handy in case I go ballistic when someone throws her garbage on me.How Senses Affect Our Emotions
Emotions are generated by a variety of senses. Emotions are triggered within our consciousness at a moment’s notice, and they are manifested by our senses. As defined by Wikipedia, the traditionally recognized five human senses are sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. A classification attributed to Aristotle.

Never mind Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, the really important division we need to be aware of in the world is the difference between introverts and extraverts.

When we see these ones as people like you and me, it becomes a lot easier to appreciate what they have to say.Spirituality and Money Can Go Hand in Hand
It is the belief of many very good people that spirituality and money cannot go hand in hand. That if they become wealthy this will cause them to no longer be a Spiritual Person. This belief has developed into many areas of people’s lives. They believe that for some reason, the wealthy are in some way under-handed and have acquired their ‘ill gotten gains’ by dubious methods.The Power of Planning
General Dwight D. Eisenhower said: “Plans are meaningless but planning is essential.” I think Eisenhower and just about every sports coach on the planet understand that while our plans may not turn out as expected, the process of planning is essential to our success and achievement. Planning benefits us in so many ways. Here are seven reasons for putting the power of planning to work for you.Good Enough Is Good Enough
One of the biggest problems we make of life is making it harder than it has to be. Why do we expect perfection of ourselves and other people?

I wondered how fabulous it would be if I could teach every mild-mannered, meek young person to do that. Then I remembered that there are a lot of adults out there who are still not doing that for themselves.Rock ‘N Roll Personal Development
I just returned from the Atlanta kick off for The Wrecking Ball Tour of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. The excitement coursing through my veins is electrifying and my energy and spirit are at an all time high! Many have asked (and you may be wondering too)… “Why do you go to see his shows over and over again?
