Surrender: Is It About Giving In…or About Gaining Control?

I don’t know why this term has a mostly negative meaning.

However, without even going into the factors that might explain why everyone sees life differently, there are also differences when it comes to what is taking place within someone. Just because one has a physical body, it doesn’t mean that they have the same level of empathy as someone else.

Why you should never compare yourself with others

Monday, November 24th, 2014

Comparing yourself with others is no doubt the most corrupting habit that you can adopt. It is however, easy to compare yourself with others to know where you stand, but comparing yourself with others and learning from others are two different ways to look at it. Comparing yourself with other people’s success and happiness will only make you jealous and nervous at times. Following are some very convincing reasons to stop comparing yourself with others:

1. If you are lacking, you are probably setting yourself up for failure
