How to Overcome Victim Thinking: 3 Powerful Steps
“Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.” Helen Keller How do you react if something in your life doesn't go as you wish? Well, at first you’ll probably feel pain of some sort. But what happens after that? What do you do after the initial pain? Do you think of yourself as a victim, as someone with little or no control or power? Do you slip back into a familiar headspace where you feel sorry for yourself and where you feel like someone – or the whole world – is against you? I used to get stuck in that destructive and self-esteem suc...

3 Simple Steps to Stop Comparing Yourself to Other People
“Comparison is the death of joy.” Mark Twain “When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.” Lao Tzu One of the most common and destructive daily habit is to constantly compare your life and yourself to other people and their lives. You compare cars, houses, jobs, shoes, money, relationships, social popularity and so on. And at the end of the day you pummel your self-esteem to the ground and you create a lot of negative feelings within. And perhaps also outside of yourself. So what can you do?

3 Simple Ways to Improve Your Mood Right Now
I sometimes write about how a good start to your day often leads to having a good day in general. A social, an energetic or a productive start sets the context for your day. But on some days you may not get a good start for some reason. Maybe you slept badly. Or the maybe grey skies and cold autumn rain is dragging your energy down. Or you might have lost that positive momentum during a hard first part of the day and after lunch you feel tired, low or lost in a somewhat sad or uninspired funk. What to do then? Is that day lost and should you just aim for a better day tomorrow? Well, today isn't over yet. Maybe you can sti...

How to Stop Being Pessimistic: 10 Positive Thinking Tips
One of the most powerful habits that I’ve picked up in the past 10+ years is to stop being pessimistic and to think in a more optimistic and constructive way instead. It makes life feel lighter and not so burdensome. It opens up new paths towards where you want to go and it helps you to more easily overcome setbacks (and often get something good out of them).

Well, learning to think in a less pessimistic and more positive way may sound a bit vague. So...

How to Overcome Fear: 6 Powerful Strategies You Can Start Using Today
