When You Behave Perfectly You’ll Probably Be Successful But Might Hate Life

Do you try to behave perfectly? Do you consciously make every action as polite, professional, and well mannered as humanly possible? If so, you may well be on your way to success, but you could also be heading to a life of unhappiness. When I was in my early 20s I wanted to be perfect, and I wanted to behave perfectly in every situation. I always dressed immaculately. I was polite to a fault. I did all the things that I thought “perfect” people did. I’ll be honest. My perfect behaviour did reap rewards. When I behaved perfectly I was

They Discovered What Changes Lives. You Will Be Amazed.

You might not believe it. But they’ve discovered what changes lives. Turns out it’s the tiniest little thing. A wealth of new scientific research is changing the way we think about life. It turns out that inward changes do not equate to outwards changes. Actually, outward changes equate to inward changes. Research into psychotherapy has literally turned the tables on the way we think about psychology. For years—centuries, even—it has been believed that to change your life you need to first change what’s going on inside of you. Freudian approaches to psychology emphasised working through problems by changing internal thought

Who Told You You’re Not Allowed To Be Unhappy Sometimes?

Have you been made to believe that you have to be happy all the time? If so, you’re probably feeling a lot of weight on your shoulders. Because being happy all the time is very hard. In fact, it’s impossible. And not only is it impossible, it’s unnatural and unhealthy. When you’re told that you should always be happy, you’re made to question why you’re ever unhappy. You’re made to believe there’s something wrong with you. You might have been forced into thinking such things as I’d be happy if only I had a god job. Or I’d be happy

How To Feel Free In Life, The Zen Masters Way

Freedom. It’s what everyone wants. We want to feel free in relationships. We want to feel free from tension, stress, anxiety, or whatever other feelings we’re experiencing. The desire for freedom is something we all share. When you put your runners on and head out on a ten mile run, you’re making yourself feel free. When you head to the yoga studio and focus your mind on those asanas, you’re making yourself feel free. And when you take a couple of weeks off work and hop onboard a flight to the Bahamas, you’re getting away so you can feel free.

How To Take A Spiritual Journey Starting Now

Have you ever wondered how to take a spiritual journey? It isn’t easy. It just requires an open mind. Here’s my story of how I started my own spiritual journey…      In 2004 when I was training to be an actor at Oxford, one of my drama teachers happened to say one very simple line to me. He said “Imagine there’s a closed curtain around your mind. Now imagine that curtain opening”. That was all he said. But those few precious words were the beginning of my spiritual journey.     How to take a spiritual journey: Step 1:

Everyone Ignored This Homeless Man At Starbucks. Then One Guy Did Something So Kind Your Heart Will Melt

When a lonely homeless man walked into a Starbucks he was completely ignored. Here was a man who is no different to you or me, only a man who has been unfortunate in life. But he was shunned simply because he was homeless. Some people think of homeless people are burdens. But they’re wonderful, unique individuals just like you and me. Sadly, the average person ignores homeless people. They see them as a problem. They don’t see the often wonderful, kind-hearted people who have become homeless by nothing more than misfortune. Nor do they see the fact that many of

10 Life Goals To Achieve Before 40

At 33 I can feel the big 40 slowly creeping up on me like a stranger in the night. I see a shadow of myself as a 40 year old. I’m not there yet, but soon I’ll look in the mirror and say “Well, here I am, 40.” Eh. It’s not that big a number. My nan’s a 102. But 40 is definitely an age at which we should have achieved at least a few pretty serious life goals.

You’ll have to excuse my morbidity. I don’t mean to bring up death. It’s often a lot more pleasant to just bury our heads in the sand and pretend that time isn’t slipping us by. But in truth it’s actually one hell of an advantage to be able to squarely face up to death. We’re going to die. Because we’re going to die, right now we need to live. And to live right now, we need to push ourselves to do amazing things. That’s what a bucket list is all about, isn’t it? It’s about saying “Look. I know I’m

Wow. These 10 Vital Life Lessons Could Save The Planet

Mankind keeps expanding. Right now NASA is blasting spaceships through the stratosphere, the army is testing thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missile systems that can fire multiple nuclear warheads over 10,000 miles, and we’re making major breakthroughs in human cloning. Somehow all this expansion seems to be in the wrong direction. Do we really need to be able to kill over a billion people with one missile and then clone them all back to life through stem cells? Our ego-based consciousness is taking us down the wrong path. We’re consumed by fears of war and thoughts of economic success. We’re forgotten what
