A Father’s Advice to His Son – Kipling

A Fathers Advice to His Son, by Rudyard Kipling, inspires us to dream, keep our virtue, uphold our honesty and moral fabric…all great lessons that we should embrace as men and women throughout our journey. “If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise If you can dream – and not make dreams your master; If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,…

Does Fear of Judgment Change Your Social Behavior?

Does Fear of Judgment Change Your Social Behavior?

Fear of judgment creates doubt, insecurity and inaction Concern for how others view us, and fear of judgment is not an irrationally held emotion.

Fear of judgment is an overblown emotion that you elevated into an unwarranted status. At all cost, discard fear of judgment and let go of the limitations that this creates. It is easy for us to live in our minds in whip certain thoughts into a frenzy of emotions.

This usually happens during times of uncertainty when we place a high degree of importance on the outcome: the beginning or end of romantic relationships, before job interviews, and anytime we have a sense of insecurity or doubt and our path is not clear. Fear of judgment is limiting; it creates inaction, paralysis and negative emotions. Eliminate it without a second thought. No one understands your inner monologue, motivations, desire or end-goal.

Top 14 Leadership Principles For Success

Is anyone leading today? It is time that we quit following the herd. Each of us is a leader within our own sphere of influence, be it family, friends or professionally. Everyday we make decisions based on guiding principles that we learned from our family, in childhood, or as we grew. We have created and implemented the moral code that is uniquely our own. For some, this is a loose standard. Others have an unwavering set of principles to which they are bound.

3 Essentials To Create A Balanced Life

Create a Balanced Life in Three Steps Upgrade your life with the 3 Essentials to Create A Balanced Life. Most people dislike “rules” or “laws” when they are applied in the context of social development, but the “essentials” of the three-step process should be read as immutable, unwavering laws. Without strict adherence to each essential step, one cannot find the peace one seeks, nor the ability to be emotionally available and engage in functional, healthy relationships. Each step is a requisite step in the process of creating a healthy and complete version of self. Think of each essential step as a rules that is not suggestive in nature, but rather directive. Release – Balance  – Focus Step 1. Release All that has happened lies in the past but it is now history. Past experiences usually affect us long after the initial impact. They shape our thoughts, what we become and our emotional content. They give us a framework against which we weigh present decisions and create future outcome.
