Cathy Cassani Adams

We suffer when we believe all of the scary stories in our head. Suffering is exaggerated worry about what could happen if we had a difficult experience, not the actual difficult experience.

I Couldn't Love Myself, So I Loved My Self-Judgment

Natasha Che | Posted 05.01.2015 | Women
Natasha Che

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for feel-good tactics that brighten up the world. I only find it surprising that, despite all the books and essays and TV talk shows that tell people to love themselves, we still find it difficult to do.

How You're Probably Letting Others Walk All Over You

Kevin Kleitches | Posted 06.29.2015 | GPS for the Soul
Kevin Kleitches

Realize that there's a difference between bitterness and anger. As Maya Angelou so eloquently put it, "Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn't do anything to the object of its displeasure." Contrast this with anger -- it's okay to be angry, as long as you channel that energy productively.

Running Fast and Slow on Intuition: Reflections of a Graduating MBA

Minh Chau

With classes already ended and graduation looming, I wanted to reflect on the lessons that have impacted me the most in the past two years. I can write about all the things I've learned in the classroom, but that would be pedantic. Besides, I think this wonderful journey has taught me more through experience than through pedagogy.

Are You Listening, Oprah?

Sue Shanahan | Posted 06.22.2015 | Women
Sue Shanahan

Over the years, I have learned so much from Oprah Winfrey. I felt a kinship with her from the day she began her show in Chicago in 1986. She was so real. Plus, she was a woman of size (like me). She was someone who was approachable, not above me.

7 Self-Defeating Things We Say To Ourselves

Erin Dullea | Posted 06.21.2015 | Healthy Living
Erin Dullea

Here's the dirty truth: We ascribe happiness to having achieved (fill-in-the-blank). And it's no wonder that we do. Media images tell us every damn day that we must look and act a certain way if we want to be happy. But you know what? It's crap. Really. You are enough. Right now. And so am I.

We've all heard motivational speakers tout the fact that there is no "I" in team. The clever wordplay suggests that for teams to be effective, they must shun individual egos in favor of advancing the mission of the team.

Daffnee Cohen

In a bustling society driven by technology and to-do lists, we tend to define our successes by how hard we work, what we have to show for it and what our next steps look like. For every individual, our successes are highly diverse and cover our careers and professional life, but also our love life, family life, health, finances, creative sides and so much more.

What's Really Lurking Behind Your Deepest Fears?

Ryan Greenhalgh | Posted 06.15.2015 | Healthy Living
Ryan Greenhalgh

Follow your fear. There's glory on the other side of the tunnel. You won't be able to see the light on the other side...maybe even for awhile. You won't ever be ready. You won't ever be totally confident. You won't ever grow the courage. You grow the courage by doing it even though you aren't ready.

Most strangers believe that I've manipulated my way to, for and in every opportunity possible. I'm used to it now. I have adjusted by disarming them with self-deprecating humor and/or hiding behind a bun, glasses and clothes purchased a size too big. (At the advice of my father.)

What Do Selfies, Vampires and Zombies Have in Common?

Rea Nolan Martin | Posted 06.10.2015 | Healthy Living
Rea Nolan Martin

The day our selfies accurately reflect our inner lives is the day we become an integrated species. This is the day the Shadow recedes and the Self of higher awareness shows up. It's a day worth waiting for. The struggle is right before us, projected on our computers, phones, TV screens and in new genres of literature dedicated to the paranormal underbelly.
