You Are Not Better Than Anybody Else

When you get mad at someone or something, you reveal your true self. You show yourself how you get mad, how you react when situations do not turn out the best for you, and how you deal with it afterwards. In the end, you just got mad for a person who is as inadequate as you.

Sure, you could say that you are better than everyone because you have achieved your goals. You could start a family, have a good career, earn a good amount of income. In the end, your nice clothes and manners have brought you the people you need to call yourself better than anybody else.

But then, when you make mistakes, you tell people that you are “human too.” As a human, you make mistakes and errors. You tell them that you are human. However, when you are full of yourself, you do not mind how others are also “human” as you.

Maybe you could say again that you try not to make any mistakes better than the other person, but how could you be so sure? In the end, it does not give you any right to shout at anybody else, or step on them, or deride them because of their occupation and earnings, just because you were tired, stressed and frustrated.

You are not entitled to anything if you admit that you are human. In the end, you are no better than anybody else. So when you are stressed, think of it this way, and you could save yourself a great load of shame to others, and yourself.

Remember That We Are Not Perfect

If the stress is getting to you, whether in the professional or relationship world, remember that you are not perfect. People want to chase after perfection because of the comfort that they bring. Reaching perfection is near impossible because as humans, people improve, but never reach their ultimate desire of a perfect life.

In a relationship, wanting a very happy relationship is the goal. A healthy and supportive relationship is highly coveted by many, but it is inevitable that the couple would get into fights, misunderstandings and disappointment. However, by having patience with the other person, and taking time to sort things out, a relationship may not be perfect, but it progresses on.

Perfection also impedes progress. When one reaches their goal, they become complacent and remain stuck in the same position for the rest of their lives. Life is a series of experiences with most of such unpleasant and challenging, but it is during the times people achieve something that they progress and develop themselves effectively.

Remember, people are not perfect. You are not perfect. If you make mistakes, you make them and learn from them. If your boss scolds you for a failure, it is because you are imperfect yourself. It is important that people realize that their efforts may always fail, but life is worth trying because it is the journey that matters.

Tips to Help You Overcome Things In the Past

Every person in the world had done something in the past that they regret doing, even if they say that they do not regret every moment they did such an act. However, some get stumped by these realizations and end up living their lives structured by a past that they could not correct. Here are a few things to remember to avoid being stuck in the past and allowing yourself to become a better person for the present and future.

1. What’s Done is Done
Indeed, what happened has already happened and to think about and re-play things in one’s mind will not help. It is important to accept that fact that what happened had already happened, and whether you gave your best effort or not, what is done is already done.

2. Occupy Spaces
Some places where certain undesirable events occurred will continue to haunt you for the rest of your life. As these anchor to your past, it would be to your best interests to occupy the places with new memories with new acquaintances and people you meet.

3. Do Something New
Your normal lifestyle will make it difficult for you to forget something, even if the lifestyle keeps you busy or helps you think away from the things you regret. Do something new, break from your usual routine. This will help give you experiences and insights about your life, and the things you were missing out while you were deep in regret.

Insurance Policies That Function Similarly to PPI

Payment protection insurance is still making the UK headlines today, and millions of UK consumers are making a claim for their refund from a useless insurance policy. However, not everyone knows they are mis sold PPI not because the bank did not tell them, a claims management company texted or “cold-called” them or they had a similar case with another consumer. Sometimes, consumers fail to recognize the function of their insurance policy is similar to PPI.

PPI is any kind of insurance policy that functions to repay your financing in case you get sick, have an accident or get unemployed. The policy’s name can change to the specific protection you get. This is most typical with regular-premium PPI policies.

Examples are mortgage protection insurance, credit repayment insurance, home loan repayment insurance, credit protection insurance, loan protection fund and the like.

Be wary that sometimes, insurers name the product differently than their function. Specialty names can be deceiving especially if they are used as “catch phrases” that instantly hook themselves into your mind. You may also have some bundle insurance policies that include a payment protection clause that you might not be eligible for.

The average price tag for PPI is £2780. This may differ depending on the nature of the financing the insurance protects.

Managing Expectations and the Importance of Discipline

The root of all pain is expectation. Everyone expects life to be better, bright and pleasurable when we give off enough effort from ourselves. However, the truth is that life can be anything based on our choices, even once that we may have absent-mindedly made. We cannot expect ourselves to always make good decisions, and we do not make good decisions when we do not have discipline.

Forming discipline requires a great amount of focus. If one expects something to happen, discipline helps achieve it by having them avoid distractions. Fulfilling every requirement that is necessary without having to stop for anything helps one get the expectation they deserve.

However, despite all the trouble, things can still get awry because again, life can be anything. Your effort does not make the cake alone, but also the effort and actions of other people. If your teammate fails while you have done your job of ensuring they are all working efficiently, you still fail despite your discipline and despite your focus.

When you learn to manage your expectations, you realize the things you need to do when something happens. This is when you form your crisis-management skills, which tell more about yourself rather than the decisions you made with your life.

Let Events Take Over the Wheel For You

The religious would themselves perform the best they can and have their god or any deity take over the rest of what would happen. This is a very positive mind set albeit carefree and illogical, but there is a logical explanation even for the non-religious about why this positive mind set can become a rationally-accepted mental discipline.

Imagine that you’re doing a business project that you and a team had spent 3 months trying to put up. You’ve missed some deadlines but you have done efforts to ensure you get to the main deadline. As team leader, you order your team to do this and tell them when things seem wrong or their results are insufficient. In the end, you show them how to do everything, which makes you feel as if you were the one who did all the work for 3 months.

Of course, your stress levels have peaked and may have burst through those 3 months. Observing your teammates, they feel that you are distant and are very untrusting of other people. It is because you tried to control the situation in your own way that people look at you untrustingly because you did not trust them in the first place.

The logical explanation is that if you think your teammates are like the asteroids moving around in outer space, you cannot control them. They will pass by Jupiter or even the Earth at will, but you cannot control them because they’re bigger than you. There are so many things bigger than you that apply their own force that influence or even control certain events that could spiral beyond your control.

So, the most important thing is that you do the best you can and let causality take over. You apply your own force, but never apply them to other forces because it can introduce a “domino effect” on other forces, which can alter the balance of events, leading to you, and other people’s disappointment.

How to Write Original Content

Blogs are only interesting if the writer’s experiences are authentic and unique, just as information’s factuality and innovativeness makes it popular. Writing original content requires good research, level of interest, innovation and authority on the subject.

1. Grammar
When writing, avoid using other nouns for characters or players in your article. For example, if you refer to a doctor as a medical professional, never use ‘doctor’ to describe the character to avoid confusion. Always observe proper grammar and make use of active sentence construction, which can help make your article more interesting.

2. Research
When blogging, you won’t actually research as you do in academic papers. A blog can be a form of reaction to an existing social issue, a scientific discovery or a political event. What you read in the papers, editorials or other blogs could be sources that would support your blog’s main topic. Referring to them through linking will not only get you SEO gains, but would also allow your audiences to see your resources

3. Personal Perspective
Writing from a personal perspective is important, but it is more effective if your writer persona is an authority in the subject. You could establish authority through posting media that shows you in an interview with a famous personality or specialist, gaining fame by having a substantial number of followers and authority writers who vouch for your opinion, or you are an established professional in the field.

4. Avoid Too Much References
Remember, you’re writing original content. Let the information sources you are using sink into you and avoid too many references. Instead, write a reaction about your opinion regarding your references and the reason yours is a more valid perspective.

Accepting Yourself Is Always the First Step

You have tried many things to better yourself. At work, you have set proper time schedules for deadlines that you should meet. When eating your lunch, you restrict yourself to a few sandwiches to promote lesser weight gain on your body. You motivate yourself to reach higher pinnacles and goals in your life. But in the end, you fail some or many of these goals and you grow cynical about yourself.

When you grow frustrated about yourself, you consider yourself a failure because you did not meet an expectation that you set out for your own good. However, understand that you are human; that you have limits in both your physical and mental capabilities.

To do great things, one must first accept one’s self completely. Understanding yourself is crucial. You will want to strengthen your best points and minimize and improve the things you find difficult about yourself. You must start with small steps in improving yourself. Frustration is easy if you drive yourself to do drastic changes in a small span of time.

Everyone wants to improve him or herself quickly, but the speed of improvement runs at a consistent and moderate pace. Conditioning yourself to accept your faults, improve them and strengthen your positive points, means taking the time to accept yourself completely.

After such, you will find a positive tomorrow where your body is open for accepting change.

The Correlation of Spirituality and Detachment

Spirituality is finding one’s self at a higher pinnacle of thought by focusing one’s goals as one’s purpose in life. With high spirituality, one could concentrate and focus all his or her energy for things that matter most to him or her.

Detachment is not being attached to any outcome that may come out of your actions. Detachment is acknowledging that you have done an act and you are responsible for your actions, but the outcome is irrelevant to what you feel.

Both coincide at one point in one’s life and when it does, the person concerned feels in high spirits while knowing the fact that he or she does not have to be concerned about the outcome of certain things involving him or her.

For example, a person who is not engrossed in football but is affiliated with the school the team plays for could accept the fact that the team could win or lose and winning is a good thing for him but losing is not a bad thing for him. He is at the same time detached and in high spirits.

When you are high in spirits, you understand that you have something to achieve and being detached is when this goal cannot be met by you, you are not disappointed by yourself but still you keep trying. Being detached to the goal is accepting two outcomes of what could happen, but in high spirits, you continue trying and giving your best because your spirit’s high helps you develop into a better person.

The Value of Struggle in Your Daily Life

People daily come to work, struggle in traffic, deal with some insensitive superiors and workmates and do not completely understand why they need to face so much hassle in their daily lives. Struggles only keep one’s mind jittery, tired and demotivated to do anything that improves work quality and themselves.

However, struggles do have a purpose in one’s life. It is the journey towards one’s improvement.

Imagine struggle as a fire burning a stone. The longer the stone is burned, the more it evolves into something more valuable than a stone. It could turn into a gem, obsidian or it can even become a diamond.

Struggles are like fires that help you adapt to the reality that one faces. While you might react to reality differently, such as trying to set things right or revolutionize things, the manner you deal with the situation inclined with identifying your own purpose in life helps you know the value of struggle in your daily life.

Knowing your purpose in life will motivate you to overcome all your struggles. Once you have done so, you will define yourself with full pride about who you truly are. The petty struggles you face on a daily basis could be defeated with a single purpose in your mind.
