Have you ever asked yourself:
“Why do I fear fear?”
Is it because we think that fear poses a threat to our lives, self image, or possessions?
You and I would probably agree that we all have our fears. We fear failure; we fear to get hurt; we fear to lose our loved ones. But, does that fear dampen our energy or does it motivate us to challenge our threats?

Have you ever regretted a mistake you made, and thought to yourself:
I’ve been there… and maybe you have too. Perhaps, you’ve just got a bad grade on your Biology test. Or maybe you just confronted the person you love, who turns out to not feel the same way…

Does that make both of us Anti-Social? Continue reading
Have you ever heard that voice emerge through your head:
“I am not good enough.”
Yeah, most of us have encountered that at some point in our competitive lives.
I have a friend — let’s call her Sabrina — who is extremely intelligent and creative. The problem is that she does not see herself that way. She only criticizes herself; she doubts her abilities.

“Why do I view moments of “weakness” as weakness?”
And why do we perceive imperfections as something that lessen our value compared to others?
Take a glance at everyone around you. Start with your closest circle of family and friends.
Can you name one member completely free of imperfections? Continue reading
