Materialism and Spirituality – Can They Co-Exist?

For a very long period of time, I was convinced that materialism and spirituality cannot co-exist.

As a person that is very passionate about self-actualization, I believe that the topic of materialism and spirituality cannot be put aside. Self-actualization is all about becoming better and finding harmony, a balance in life between everything that it offers. Therefore, both, materialism and spirituality, should be handled with equal importance.

Nature vs Nurture: How to Be Successful in the World of Fear and Doubt

In psychology, there is an everlasting debate on what determines us more, nature or nurture. On the one hand, people believe that each one us is born with a set of genes that determines the way we look, act and feel towards the surrounding world. But on the other hand, there are a lot of reasons to think that the way we are brought up by our parents and the way we interact with the world, have a stronger impact on our identity and who we become.

How to Overcome Shyness and Become More Socially Confident
