The Life Long Habit Rule : Turns Out Einstein was Right (again)

Einstein sticking tongue out

I recently came across this crazy article called ‘People who talk to themselves aren’t crazy. They’re actually geniuses.

Charlie Chaplin : As I began to love myself

Don’t get me started on office … Read The Full Post

I don’t normally do guest posts, but this one seemed to be sensible and it’s a subject I need to learn more about, so I hope it’s helpful for you too. By Greg Thurston  Creator of 7 Minute Mindfulness Watching videos of centenarians, you start to see a theme: they seem content. That might be shocking to younger people, especially anyone who fears old age. Maybe we fear missing out on opportunities in life, and worry that we’ll find ourselves too old to do things. But we have many interviews of people 100 and older, and they love to share … Read The Full Post

This is his own model that he’s devised to improve his life, and he’s teaching others how to do it too.  Basically, everything is linked, and we control the whole thing.
