It is without question that no matter how hard (or serious) the problem is at work; an employee is obligated to fix it. Unfortunately, many bosses tend to think this way. They assume they are top dog in the company and view themselves as untouchable. Henceforth, it is someone else’s responsibility to find a solution and if the problem isn’t solved, bosses will immediately blame their team. Mentalities like this are toxic. They wither away your employee’s confidence, destroy morale, and they ultimately resign.
“Is it possible for one idea to change the world?” This quote is on the poster for the movie “Pay It Forward”. This single sentence pulled me into watching the movie, because I wanted to know if it was possible or not. And in the end, it became my favourite movie of all-time.
Almost everybody has a role model or someone we look up to. Certain individuals may have had inspired us and set examples in so many ways such as people who follow their passions, people who are successful. Having a role model or a mentor is very useful. Role models show us their experience, their journey that lead to their success. These are some lessons to learn from them.
Nobody wants to fail. But failing is an inevitable aspect of life: personal life, at work, or love life. Since it’s impossible to not fail. We all need to look at our failures differently. Success comes from the ability to get up over and over again regardless of how many times we fall down. Many world leaders and successful individuals have frequently failed.
Everybody’s searching for true love. To those who have found it, congratulations. It isn’t easy for love to be born between two people. They not only have to meet, they must go through good times and bad until love develops. The love that partners show to each other varies depending on the couple, and each couple needs time to adjust or get used to each other. Over time, love can change. The perfect love that we desire is sometimes too much, or maybe not enough. Honestly, is it possible to maintain the level of love between two people to be forever balanced?
Have you ever wondered why the heart is associated with love? You can probably agree that it looks nothing like our internal organ but it has been the universal symbol of love in pop culture.
Referring to the famous quote, “An apple a day keeps a doctor away.”, Did you know that a hug will certainly do the same thing!
Several research by the experts in Touch Therapy of New York University show that hugging will stimulate the action of the hemoglobin, increasing oxygen circulation into the soft tissues. Hugging relaxes muscles and releases tension in the body. More research from The Touch Research Institute in the USA also shows that hugging is effective in healing sickness, depression, anxiety and stress.
If you ask me what the most debilitating disease in the world is, I would answer Alzheimer’s Disease. While no disease is considered the ‘best’ disease on the spectrum, families with an Alzheimer’s patient will be quick to say it is one of the worst. Personally, I think the disease tortures the heart and soul of the patient along with their family. The disease affects a person’s brain and memory. They begin to forget a person’s appearance and good memories they shared together.
Today, I have a question to ask you that may give you a headache. Do you know the difference between sympathy, empathy, and compassion? Admittedly, I’m confused. I never really put much thought about these three words and their meanings. Most likely, I’ve used these words incorrectly and interchangeably without realizing it! Don’t worry; it’s not just you, but English speakers use them wrong, too. I can only hypothesize why we use them erroneously; I believe these words resonate deeply with your feelings. Thus, we use these words according to how we feel.
I think most of you might have heard about a fear of failure, but only a few have mentioned another fear, a fear of success… but, wait, is there such a fear? I am telling you that we all have this fear inside. Still, why do people have it? And how are we going to handle it?
