Optimism and pessimism are a window through which we see the world. The attitude we adopt towards people, events and situations affects our goals, behavior and progress in every aspect of our lives.
Do you tend to see the glass half empty or half full? To find it out, read these statements and imagine that you are experiencing the described situation. How would you react?

One of the basic rules of this test is to write what you feel and what first comes to mind. It’s fine if you have the same answers to different questions. Do not read all at once! Read the questions one by one and do not rush. It will not be so interesting to see the next question if you are still writing the answer to the previous one. Well, if a pen and a piece of paper are in front of you, then let’s begin!
1. You are peering into the sea, what do you feel? Focus only on your first impression. You can close your eyes to better feel it…
2. You are walking through the woods and look at the ground. Write down what you feel.
I recently read a very interesting book by Lissa Rankin, M.D. The book was entitled “Mind Over Medicine”, and it really got me thinking about my own life, as well as my own strengths and abilities, at least in regard to my health. The basis of the book, which was written by a medical doctor who became frustrated with modern medicine, focuses on the amazing and powerful abilities we all hold within ourselves to heal. Don’t get me wrong; Dr. Rankin believes modern medicine most certainly has its place in the world. However, she advocates that we also have the ability within ourselves to heal and change certain circumstances.
Have you ever believed something so strongly that it felt true? Have you ever been convinced of an outcome ever before you engaged in an activity, and then you found Continue reading
The way you see things defines your world. Those are the words of Michael Michalko a highly acclaimed creative mind in business. You can actually change the way you look at things and in response, the things you look at will definitely change. Self-development is always about getting the best out of you because it is within. It needs you to reach out and shove the greatness out of its suppressing nest.
Enough talk; let us see what should be done. If you have low self-esteem, you should know that it is not a genetic problem that cannot be change. Low self-esteem is neither an infection that needs medication to suppress. It a perceptive situation. It is all about how you feel about yourself. These simple activities can change the way you see things and enable self-improvement. Continue reading
It’s the age-old question asked by people in different parts of the world – “What is my purpose in life?” In other words, “What am I here to accomplish?” Figuring out your place in the world can be a difficult feat, especially since nowadays, people expect you to have it all figured out at an early age. For a few lucky people, the calling does come early, and they spend their days living out their dream. But what about the rest of us?
For those of us who found our purpose later in life (or for those who are still searching), all is not lost. First, figure out why you are searching for your life purpose. Is it because of a deep interest in what you were meant to do in life, or because someone Continue reading
American biologist claims that genes can be affected by signals located in the external environment of the cell, such as thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Cell biologist Dr. Bruce X. Lipton (formerly professor of medical courses in high school and now scientific researcher) was one of the first scientists who detected this effect. Having performed a series of experiments, he revealed that the cell membrane is an organic analogue of a computer chip.
Although these views conflict with the scientific doctrine, which states that genes are those that control behavior, similar publications of other researchers have strengthen this view. Continue reading
When we face obstacles in our lives we not always try to overcome them by ourselves, but we rather tend to believe that we will certainly get some help from the world. We listen to the advice of friends and not-so-friends, family, read all sorts of articles and watch television programs and wait. Suggestion, which is a pretty powerful tool, plays a very important role here.
However, it is not always able to help us, and very often it may even do harm. Everyone has heard stories about how someone robbed people using suggestion. But you can also remember the stories with happy endings, for example, the ones about the placebo effect. Continue reading
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be”
Books have been written, films have been filmed and lives have been lived all in search for the subtle “happiness”. Actually there is a connection between our happiness and our general well-being, which was proven scientifically. Since we are creatures of survival, it feels comfortable to search for the things that make us feel good and at the same time have a positive effect on our overall well-being. We feel healthier, we become healthier, and we live longer. Continue reading
It is true that drugs play a key role in the relief from pain, but in cases of chronic pain taking them may be accompanied by serious side effects.
Fortunately, numerous studies have shown that there are alternative methods to treat pain, which have to do with concentration and mind power.
1. Thinking about food
Research at the University of Wisconsin showed that when one thinks of his favorite food, the intensity of pain decreases. Chocolate was proved to be the favorite food fantasy.
2. Controlled breathing
Deep diaphragmatic breathing can be very helpful, since it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which Continue reading
