4 Practical Ways to Finding Your Life's Passion

Deena Varshavskaya | July 22, 2014 | Business
My mom was a non-political, non conformist by nature. This was best expressed by the fact that, if she wanted something, there was no stopping her. She set her own rules. These two traits  --  questioning everything and being unafraid to go after what I want  --  has defined who I am.

Do You Believe in Love?

David Wygant | July 22, 2014 | Women
Love is an open door my friend, but you can only open the door when you open your mind, and your heart. So many of us are on the treadmill of dating, and we continually date the same people over and over again. Why? Because we're not clear on what we really want.

How to Talk to an Artist

Dana Sitar | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
As a universally misunderstood lot, artists tend to hate talking to people. Whether you're in the industry or a layperson, our best friend, family member, or colleague, we don't want to talk to you. It's not because of rampant introversion or elitism in creative people. It's because you're not good at talking to us.

I Went 21 Days Without Complaining and It Changed My Life

Tim Ferriss | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
I wanted to cut out the commiserating most of us use for 30-40 percent of all conversation (if you don't believe me, keep track of how many people start conversations with you in the next 24 hours that center on a complaint or criticism).

The Quest for Joy: It Isn't As Elusive As You Think

Ritu_Sharma | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
Whether you're someone transitioning into a new phase of your life or someone just starting out on the career path after graduation day, "What would bring me joy?" is a question worth asking. And if down the road that joy starts to wane, be ready to ask again.

The Quickest Way Out of the Dumps

Margaret Paul, Ph.D. | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
Life here is a great gift. In the spiritual realm, we do not come up against darkness -- the darkness that challenges us to discover our own light. Only by coming up against our own and other's wounds can we discover how to heal them.

Mastering Risk and Uncertainty: Walk Gratefully into the Unknown

Heather Martin | July 22, 2014 | Women
We can push the limits of our existence, but there is never any guarantee it will work out to our expectation. But if we take what life gives us without any fight, we may or may not like what we get either, yet in this case we have no input in actively shaping our lives.

Fear plays a huge role in relationships, and two fears in particular cause some of the biggest problems. If you understand how these two fears work, you're much more likely to attract a healthy relationship into your life.

The Benefits of Journaling and Tips for Getting Started

Dr. Gail Gross | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
The very act of writing has been scientifically shown to be a beneficial creative process. By putting pen to paper, you are using the left side of your brain, which is critical and rational. This gives the right side of your brain a chance to access your feelings and intuition without any mental blocks.

Make It Happen

Reed Alexander | July 21, 2014 | Healthy Living
If you believe in your dreams and are committed to your objectives, you can achieve them. If you really want to, if you're willing to put your thinking cap on and press the pedal to the medal, there's nothing that can distract you, nothing that can slow you down, nothing than can stop you, from making it happen.

4 Things We Must Change to Stop Self-Sabotaging

Lisa Firestone | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
The more fully we live and love, the more sadness we are bound to experience. Our inner critic tries to shield us from feeling the joys and pains of existence. It keeps us in a chronic state of numbness or dissatisfaction. In order to face our fears, we must consciously identify and actively ignore this coaching.

If each of us carries love in our hearts for one another, then together we can move through this darkness of despair that is hovering over us lately. We mustn't forget that love is life, and without it, life cannot exist.

People often fear passion. It is misunderstood and sometimes applied in the wrong way toward the wrong things. But the clearer your path and the stronger your passion, the greater your chances of success.

The Difference Between 'I'm Sorry' and 'I've Been There'

Scott Stabile | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
If you can relate to someone going through a difficult time, try to find the strength to let them know. Allow yourself to be vulnerable enough to revisit your own pain and to share it, in words or in energy. Let them know that you are there for them, and that you can empathize with what they're experiencing.

Want Peace? Try Forgiveness

Sharon Frey | July 21, 2014 | Healthy Living
Indeed, it can be hard to "swim against the stream" of our reactions to injustice. But heading down the path of forgiveness can be as simple as knowing we each have this spiritual sense that can identify the good that's present even where it seems far from obvious.
