"Given the media climate, as well as the extreme marketing made available through social media, and the cocaine-like addiction we have to our smartphones — it can be incredibly difficult to be purposeful, focused, and happy.
If you do not create and control your environment, you’ll be distracted at best. More likely, you’ll be debilitated and defeatist. You’ll become pessimistic and reactive. Your hope and perspective will become darkened by the noise and confusion all around you." READ MORE
Your subconscious mind works continuously, while you are awake, and while you sleep“.”
— Napoleon Hill
Your subconscious never rests and is always on duty because it controls your heartbeat, blood circulation, and digestion. It controls all the vital processes and functions of your body and knows the answers to all your problems.
What happens on your subconscious level influences what happens on your conscious level. In other words, what goes on internally, even unconsciously, eventually becomes your reality. As Hill further states, “The subconscious mind will translate into its physical equivalent, by the most direct and practical method available.”
The goal, then, is to master how to utilize your unconscious mind. When you learn how to master your unconscious, you quite literally become the creator of your world. READ MORE

You’ve probably seen it by now — that YouTube vid that careens through 10 painstaking hours of walking through NYC as a woman. In it, she — all while avoiding eye contact — runs a gauntlet of come-ons, creepings, catcalls and conversation non-starters.

How do we improve in the face of complexity? Atul Gawande has studied this question with a surgeon's precision. He shares what he's found to be the key: having a good coach to provide a more accurate picture of our reality, to instill positive habits of thinking, and to break our actions down and then help us build them back up again. "It's not how good you are now; it's how good you're going to be that really matters," Gawande says.
"Whether we realize it or not, our words carry an immeasurable weight. But as Prince Ea reminds us, it is up to us to be mindful of the words we use, and to use them for good. Through story, he shares just how fine the line can be between positive affirmation and negative condemnation, and points out the nuance we should all be mindful of before we speak." -happify.com
