You can't reach your full potential until you learn to live your life in the present.
It's impossible to be happy if you're constantly somewhere else, unable to fully embrace the reality (good or bad) of this very moment.
To help yourself live in the moment, you must do two things: First, accept your past. If you don't make peace with your past, it will never leave you. Second, accept the uncertainty of the future. Worry has no place in the here and now.

Happiness is contagious.
Surrounding yourself with happy people builds confidence and stimulates creativity, and it's flat-out fun.
Hanging around negative people has the opposite effect -- they want people to join their pity party so that they can feel better about themselves....
Happy people live by the motto "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." They forgive in order to prevent a grudge, but they never forget.
The negative emotions that come with holding onto a grudge are actually a stress response. Holding on to that stress can have devastati...
Getting your body moving for as little as 10 minutes releases GABA, a neurotransmitter that makes your brain feel soothed and keeps you in control of your impulses. Happy people schedule regular exercise and follow through on it because they know it pays huge dividends for their mood.
Taking time to contemplate what you're grateful for isn't merely the "right" thing to do. It also improves your mood, because it reduces the stress hormone cortisol by 23 percent.
Research conducted at the University of California, Davis found that people who worked daily to cultivate an a...
Most of us have no problem marveling at our friends' good qualities, but it can be hard to appreciate our own.
Learn to accept who you are, and appreciate your strengths. Studies have shown that practicing self-compassio...
Every second you waste waiting for happiness is a second you could have been using to create it.
The happiest people aren't the luckiest, wealthiest or best-looking; the happiest people are those who make an effort to be happy.
If you want to create your own happiness, you have to sta...
People's core attitudes fall into one of two categories: a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.
With a fixed mindset, you believe you are who you are and you cannot change. This creates problems when you're challenged, because anything that appears to be more than you can handle is bound to ...
Rather than dwelling on the things you can't control, try putting your effort into the things that you can.
Have a long commute to work? Try listening to audiobooks. Hurt your leg jogging? Try swimming. More often than not, we take the bad and let it hold us back when it doesn't have to.
Worrying is like paying a debt you don't owe.
When you sleep, your brain literally recharges, removing toxic proteins that accumulate during the day as byproducts of normal neuronal activity.
This ensures that you wake up alert and clear-headed. Your energy, attention and memory are all reduced when you don't get enough quality sleep....
Attempting to repress your emotions doesn't just feel bad; it's bad for you. Learning to be open about your feelings decreases stress levels and improves your mood.
One study even suggested that there was a relationship between how long you live and your ability to express your emotions.

The implications of our obstacles are theoretical- they exist in the past and the future. We live in the moment. And the more we embrace that, the easier the obstacle will be to face and move.
No matter what type of storm you have survived, no matter how much you’ve been hurt. No matter how...
The past mostly regrets, and the future is anxiety and worry. The only thing that is real is the present moment, and the art of mindfulness delves into the present, instead of being in dreams or illusions.

Yoga Nidra reveals to us that we always live in the present moment. The reality is only the limitless now. When we think about the past and the future, we fail to realize that when we were living in the past, it was now, and when we will live in the future, it will be now at that moment...

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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!
