Perfectionism: Can Toxic Shame Cause Perfectionism?

Monday, December 1st, 2014

There are things that are around today that are seen as being perfect but as time passes, they will be seen as imperfect. And this is how life has always been and something that will continue to take place.

What this shows is how life doesn’t stand still and that there is always something new or different waiting to be revealed. When something is new or different, it could be seen as better and as the next step.

What Constitutes Talent?

I still recall my final year of university with restrained enthusiasm.

That passage has stuck with me for seventeen years, etched in to my mind as a measure of an individual’s influence on the world.

5 Important Reasons Why Hypnotherapy Works

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Every year, various mental disorders affect millions of people around the world. Anxiety, for instance, may be experienced as only a brief episode occurring only once. For others, however, this anxiety may recur many times, thus impacting lives quite significantly.

Whatever the disorder, it can become a very debilitating condition – especially when left untreated. In recent years, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have slowly become recognized as potentially effective for people with such disorders. This has led to many people in California, Adelaide, and other places to seek out this treatment as an option.

Only licensed practitioners may use hypnotherapy on patients, of course – with the latter being encouraged to see their physicians before approaching a hypnotherapist. Courses to learn the practice and later become licensed are offered in a good number of places, such as Yorkshire and Adelaide, to name a few.

Keep An Open Mind. 10 Tips About Embracing Change

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Just what does that phrase “Keep an open mind” mean anyway?

Your boss says it; your parents might say it; anyone attempting to convince you to try something new might say it.

Of course you are keeping an open mind… BUT!

If that BUT is there in your head, then you are NOTkeeping an open mind.

We all have preconceived notion of life, of how things are and how they should be. For many people it is difficult to get past those preconceived notions, hence the BUT.
