5 Articles I Loved This Week

  • Are you afraid of failure

wrote a blown your mind article this past week on how and why smart people fear failure.

Did it happen to you?

Think about the last time you were so afraid to fail, you chose to procrastinate instead of going ahead. Not easy to accept it, isn’t it?

Now go read Gini’s post and be honest with yourself.

  • The power of daily writing

Another great post from Gini. And no, it’s not about blogging or writing you do for your clients. It’s about journaling, writing down your thoughts about everything and anything on a daily basis.

Do you have a journal for your thoughts?

Read Gini’s post and learn the benefits of journaling your thoughts and feelings.

  • The mindset of appreciation

Speaking of thoughts and feelings, wrote a very interesting post on .

We take so many things for granted, from friends and family to health and jobs or businesses. We are so focused on what we don’t have, didn’t accomplish, that we forget what we do have, what we have accomplished so far. We judge others to easily, instead of taking a moment and appreciate what they’re trying to build for themselves.

  • What’s left when you strip everything away

Let’s stay a little more with Danny and talk about you. Yes, you, who you really are when no one sees you, when you take down all the masks you wear for your friends, family, boss, next-door neighbor, and even for your kids.

We put on masks every day for every situation or person in our lives because we are afraid. Yes, we are afraid to let those around us down, we are afraid to tell the truth for fear of being rejected or considered a not so good friend.

In this post, Danny tells is like it is, why it’s important to be yourself, and if your friends don’t approve, may be it’s time to look for some new ones.

  • Personal development lessons from “Groundhog Day”

We all have 24 hours in a day. How we choose to spend that time it’s only up to us.

Before you jump and say you need to go to work, take the kids to school and make dinner, hence no time left for yourself, stop right there. Read this article and give it a thought.

I told you this is not a PR and social media weekly picks. Hope you liked it and made you think about yourself and your choices.

Until next time, have a great week!
