Learn to Give and Get Constructive Criticism the Right Way

Life without criticism is not life, especially when you are trying to develop and improve yourself. In fact, criticism is one of the biggest factors pushing us to change. The only problem with it is that often we are attacked with criticism when we do not need it. At other times, criticism is nothing more than a “diss” aimed to hurt us. This is called destructive criticism. As a result, we want to defend ourselves whenever we are criticized, even when real constructive criticism is offered.

What Is Self-Confidence and How to Learn to Believe in Yourself

Self-confidence and the ability to believe in yourself do not come easily, but certainly are attainable. I can tell you this from personal experience.

Making the Decision to Start an Online Business This New Year – Part 1

As a new year’s resolution, I made a solid decision to start an online business in the year 2017. Why? Because I can.

There are mainly two reasons why I decided to bring this topic up and to share it with others. The first reason lies in the fact that keeping a daily journal has tremendously changed me in a positive way in so many different areas of life. The second reason is that the majority of people out there underestimate the power of journaling. We tend to think that keeping a journal has no real practical implications to it, and therefore no use of having one. And even when we do understand the potential of journaling, we procrastinate and are too lazy to do it.
