An all-important aspect of life is making the right decisions. The ability to make good decisions determines your outcomes in life. While some people believe in faith, even faith is dictated by the choices you make. Knowing the secret to correct decisions will help you lead a fulfilled, successful, and happy life.

The right decision is one that leads you towards the goal or outcome in life you want to achieve. For instance, if you want to lose twenty pounds, every decision you make about food you consume determines if you are going to achieve that goal or stay where…

We all experience those times throughout the day, where we just need to relax for even just a few minutes.

You already know that stress is taking its toll on your body and your mind. Did you know, the human mind and body are designed to work and relax in a specific pattern? None of us are robots.

Studies show regular breaks of 10 minutes per hour dramatically improve production and efficiency.

If you’re anything like me, then you don’t feel like you have even a minute to take a break, let alone ten minutes.

Luckily, there are a few…

Obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD is an anxiety condition where a person is bombarded with seemingly uncontrollable thoughts, urges, or compulsions. The worst part of this disorder is the feeling that if you don’t act out the need, something horrible will happen. Because OCD is a condition affecting the mind, hypnosis can be useful for its treatment.

Anxiety, in general, is an uncomfortable feeling. Living with OCD is taking fear to the extreme. In many people afflicted with obsessive-compulsive disorder, the rules change every day. Of course, some obsessions can be healthy. Falling in love is a form of compulsion. Working…

Increasing performance can be a difficult task. Often increasing performance comes down to releasing limitations put upon yourself in your mind. Studies have shown that runners who are told they are running 100 yards when, in fact, they are running 110 yards consistently run faster. This result is due to expectations and beliefs. The runner pushes harder because they believe they are behind where they should be. Using the advanced techniques of neuro-linguistic programming, a person can increase his or her performance in nearly any endeavor.

Neuro-linguistic programming or NLP is the study of excellence. By modeling successful behavior patterns…

The law of attraction, made famous recently in the movie The Secret, is all about having the right beliefs. It says, if you believe in something strongly enough, typically by visualizing, you will by universal law attract this belief to you. If you believe yourself to be rich, then you will become rich.

The problem with the secret is what is not mentioned in the movie. You have to take action to get what you want. Actively visualizing something and saying daily affirmations do not always create the exact life you want. …

I always loved the idea of the holidays, just not the practice. The decorations and fun seem to be the ideal combination. And getting together with family seems like it is an excellent idea. The problem is definitely with the actual “togetherness.”

If you have a close, loving, and accepting family, this article is not for you. If you have a family like mine with razor tongues and you feel like a family get-together is akin to a grilling worse than a senate hearing, then this article is here to help you.

The problem arises when a group gets together…

In today’s hectic world of cell phones, emails, and the internet, finding time for inner peace seems to be put on the back burner. Gone are the days with quiet, or so it seems.

You are taking time to create inner peace in your environment to help considerably in your quest both for relaxation and personal growth. Many people are terrified of developing peace within themselves because of the thoughts that may come to the surface.

Statistical studies show half of the US population will experience some sort of mental disorder in their life. The question arises, why is depression so prevalent in today’s society. Shockingly, the answer may be in what we’re eating.

Science has finally begun accepting the theory of the mind/body connection. This idea that what happens within the body does affect the mind or brain. Even though there exists a blood/brain barrier, what you consume does change your mentality in sometimes extreme ways. In this article, we are going to look at three of the biggest offenders.

  1. Sugar. Yes, the much-maligned sweet…

Do you dread going to work every day? Do you wake up happy only to remember that you are just fed up with what you’re doing? Are you bored having accomplished everything you wanted with your current career? These are just some of the questions that tell you it's time to start looking for a new job.

I often have people come to me believing that they have obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD. These people tell me they obsess about negative thoughts or memories endlessly looping through their minds. They describe it as living life looking through the rearview mirror. If you feel this way, you may believe the obsession itself is the worst thing possible, and it certainly can seem that way. I think, however, it can be a positive trait.

In my non-medical opinion, I believe being obsessive can be a fantastic trait to have. I have yet to meet a single successful person who does…
