Advice for the young and young at heart on how to live a satisfying life

From birth, many of us were programmed to accept a regular, mundane, limited, and often boring life. This life often contains just enough ‘fun’ for the average person to enjoy themselves occasionally- when they are not making money working at a job that they are not passionate about, to pay the ever increasing taxes and bills, just to live comfortably until they pass away. A minority of people have no fun, no joy, and little happiness in their lifetime, and there are others who live for adventure, joy, and excitement, and are in love with the idea of being alive,

Is there a secret to happiness? How can I become happier?

If you think about it, we should be the happiest species on the planet! We have so much more available to us than any previous generations. We have stuff that saves us time and effort, like washing machines and cars, stuff to endlessly entertain us, like movies, PlayStation and shopping malls, and more information available to us, about any possible subject at our fingertips, at all times. Much of this ‘stuff’ is even marketed to us with the belief that when we purchase or consume it we will be happy! So, why is it that the number of people on

Is there a sure way to predict my future?

Is there a sure way to predict my future?

The probability is that your future life will be a continuation of the life you are currently living. Is this what you want for yourself? Many people have the perception that ‘anything can happen’ throughout their lives. They believe that destiny and fate are the driving forces behind major occurrences that befall them. If this were true, we would not have the ability to choose for ourselves, and the fact is that we do have free will to choose the make-up and content of our own lives. What have you created for yourself, and are you happy with your choices?

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen.

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen.

James Allen’s book “As a Man Thinketh” opens with this verse: Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes, And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills, Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills: — He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass: Environment is but his looking-glass. Stuffed with timeless wisdom on every page, it is no wonder that ‘As a Man Thinketh’ is listed as the most inspirational book ever read by many of today’s leading self-help authors, including Tony Robbins.

How can we survive any economic upheaval?

How can we survive any economic upheaval?

Our current political systems of government in western societies have become top heavy. They are burdened by their own sheer size, interconnectedness, interdependentness, and ever-increasing complexity. More and more energy is required to keep the ever-evolving monster that is state and local governments alive and functioning. It seems to be of no consequence to them how out of control, overbearing, irrelevant, and wasteful they have become as they focus purely on staying alive, at all costs, to the detriment of the people they pretend to represent. Like parasites, many have become damaging to the health of the communities and countries

Sometimes it seems that the world is run by crazy people!

Sometimes it seems that the world is run by crazy people!

The world is currently viewed by many as a place full of injustice where it is difficult for the average person to acquire the freedoms to live, happily in abundance, without concerns relating to their future. Those with great power have manipulated society to be this way and are therefore considered by many to be greedy, selfish, and even evil. This way of thinking will not help solve the problem’s humanity currently faces, nor will it help to bring an end to the suffering of all those who live in poverty or just above the ‘bread line.’ It is only

Is it fair to judge others based on our expectations?

Is it fair to judge others based on our expectations?

How often have you heard someone say ‘If I was him/her I would have said or done things differently!’ as a way of negative judgment against words or an action that someone else has used or taken? Most people believe that if they were in another person’s ‘shoes’ (in the exact same situation that they were in) that they would do things differently. It is however pointless and erroneous to judge someone else’s choices and actions based on our own set of experiences. They have been shaped by their own personal life experiences, which are different from ours. They are
