Anger. What is it?

Anger gets such a bad rap! It’s described as negative, unproductive and you are a ‘bad’ person if you revert to anger to solve a problem. This is hog-wash! Anger encompasses everything from a mild irritation to intense rage and it is only when it gets out of control and intensely physical is anger dangerous to you and those around you. Releasing anger is good for you. We all need to ‘blow off steam’ when things build up. Anger is our way to deal with injustice, violation of our rights, protection of our young and loved ones. Anger is an emotion, neither good nor bad.

Laugh Yourself to Success

Paste a smile on your face every morning.  A smile is contagious.  Spread it far and wide wherever you go.  Make a person laugh, giggle or crack a grin….. it is the best gift you can give and it’s free.   Share your smile every day.  

How to Be More Assertive

Most of us are not born ‘assertive.’ It is a learned skill, but it is very necessary. We need to know how to politely say ‘No’; how to express our needs; and to be calm and clear when dealing with others. Those who can communicate their views, pleasure and displeasure to others without creating offensive are rewarded for their skills. Leadership is a combination of empathy, understanding and assertiveness. Practice your skills.

Are You Living in the Past

Living in the past creates fear, anxiety, and depression. It sucks the joy out of living! Whether you are sad that you have ‘lost’ something or someone, or fearful ‘something’ may happen again in the future, – you cannot live in the present. Your life is consumed by ‘what if!’ It is a fantasy world that creates anxiety and depression. Your only job on Earth is to contribute and be happy. It’s time to get back to living.
