Self-Help is Making Us Less Happy

Self-Help is Making Us Less Happy

The process of making ourselves better than who we were yesterday can be an exhaustive thing to do. In a world where we're constantly inundated with the cheer for self-improvement, we then become obsessed with the idea of improve, improve, improve!

When we become too addicted to looking inward and achieving our own ideals. our need to overperform has become pathological.Thus a solidified conclusion is never entirely possible because we insert ourselves in every situation that cannot be fixed by ourselves alone.

On The Obsession Of Happiness

On The Obsession Of Happiness

Can you admit to yourself that you're happy all of the time? I can't. I'm not happy with myself everyday and it's scary to think that I may be conditioned to feel like I can do better and be more positive and be more productive.

Growing up, we learned that we have to "climb the ladder", to push harder than yesterday if I want a different tomorrow, and that we are the decision makers of our fate.

However, the happiness imperative is vague and shallow because no one really knows what happiness is. It's more important to be interested in something beyond ourselves.

Appreciating Ambitiousness with a Slower Process

Appreciating Ambitiousness with a Slower Process

Being ambitious is never a bad thing and being able to see ourselves progress on something that we love doing makes us elated and honestly, we should be proud of how far we've come.

But it's important to keep in mind that self-improvement and happiness are not connected. To appreciate ourselves we have to step away from ourselves and be able to define what life means without the egotistical authenticity search.

People think that individual freedom is about removing limits so they can do whatever they want, but I think it's the opposite. Without limits, we cannot be free.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
