The Ego
  • The term ego has many definitions. Sages say it is the only barrier between us and true enlightenment. Whether we define it as self-esteem, self-importance or our arrogant, stubborn nature, ego isn’t something to be discarded, as it has tremendous functionality in this world.
  • The term ‘ego’ comes from the Latin word ‘I’, which Sigmund Freud chose to describe as ‘es’(in the German language), later translated to the English word ‘ego.
  • People associate conceit (narcissism), arrogance, big headedness, or simply being smug with being egoistic. People who have an aura of superiority, pomposity, or pride can also be termed ego-centric.

Self Improvement

Jim Rohn
"Work hard at your job and you can make a living. Work hard on yourself and you can make a fortune." 
What is within our control

Stoicism asserts that we don’t control and cannot rely on external events, only ourselves and our responses.

Mindful learning

It means cultivates insightful knowing rather than just a brain overloaded with information

Mindfulness creates space to let new information in and to allow us to see how it relates to what we already know. 

Causes of regret

Studies show that there are these are the three causes of regret:

  • Inaction
  • Lost opportunities
  • Poor judgment

When we decide to not actively pursue the things that we want to, in retrospect, it will bring enduring regrets of what could have been. There are some things that we could have done at that time and some we could have prevented had we not done it.

Music And Self-Awareness

Music has contributed to gatherings and bonding among groups for centuries, which is always a good way to create relationships.

Music is a side effect of self-awareness and love in our species. Many birds sing songs with the purpose of attracting mates, and while a sparrow's song is not as complex as one sung by humans, it involves the same basic motivations.

Self-Affirmations

Self-affirmations are a reflection of who you are. It is a way of thinking and writing about yourself, moreover, the things you stand for like your values in life. They are positive statements that we use to surmount the negative thinking. They do not rely on fake confidence or creating a fake reality.

They do have a bad reputation. So you have to do it in a way that doesn’t make you cringe.

Visual Learning

... is learning by seeing the information through images, graphs, and other visual materials.

Seasonal Storms

Tornadoes don’t really have a particular season and can form any time of the year. They do occur more frequently in Spring and Fall.

Past Deciding The Future

We let our knowledge and experiences of the past project into our future, by making concrete predictions that this or that cannot happen due to what happened in the past.

But life is constantly changing, flowing like a river, and does not follow past patterns.
