“There are two kinds of power you have to fight. The first is the money, and that’s just our system. The other is the people close around you, knowing when to accept their criticism, knowing when to say no.”

Martin Scorsese (American Director)

“Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.”

Napoleon Hill (American Author, Think And Grow Rich)

“The people you surround yourself with influence your behaviors, so choose friends who have healthy habits.”

Dan Buettner (American Author, The Blue Zones)

Good and bad behavior is contagious too.

One study found that emotions circulate through social networks in patterns similar to what’s seen in epidemiological models of the flu virus.

Numerically, each positive person you surround yourself with increases your chances of being positive by 11%.

But, each negative person you let into your life will more than double your chances of being negative.

Recent research also shows th...

3 Best Ways To Get Payback On A Manipulator

“It is impossible to suffer without making someone pay for it; every complaint already contains revenge.”

Friedrich Nietzsche (German Philosopher)

“We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces: we become the powerful force ourselves.”

Leo Buscaglia (American Author)

“The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.”

Marcus Aurelius (Roman Emperor)

There will be times in life when you have to stick up for what’s right and call manipulative people out on their attempts to take advantage of you.

When these manipulators go too far, it’s up to you to reset their boundaries.

It’s up to you to pay them back in a productive way.

No one else is going to do it for you.

This is not “eye for an eye” payback.

The worst thing you can do is stoop to their level and become like them.

They wouldn’t get it anyway.

An equally toxic betrayal to yourself would be to just let it slide t...

Topics :How To Be Confident



“I have a tendency to sabotage relationships; I have a tendency to sabotage everything. Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of being afraid. Useless, good-for-nothing thoughts.”

Michael Bublé (Canadian Singer/Actor)

“Leaders who are kind of insecure or egocentric, they basically sabotage themselves.”

John C. Maxwell (American Author, The 21 Irrefutable Laws Of Leadership)

“Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson (American Poet)

No matter who you are or what goals you have, your biggest obstacle in life is you.

You are your own worst enemy.

You are your biggest critic.

Part of this is because our brains are wired to value negative information twelve times more than positive information.

That’s right, negative information is stored in your long-term memory bank almost immediately, while positive information has to be held in your awareness for up to twelve seconds to be remembered long-term.

This is called negativity bias, and it affects all us.

It causes us to hold on to, ruminate on,...

“Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.”

Napoleon Hill (American Author)

“When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

Maya Angelou (American Poet)

What’s the biggest obstacle in your life?

You.

You are the biggest obstacle.

What’s the second biggest obstacle in your life?

Other people.

That’s right — beyond yourself, the biggest obstacle between you and achieving your biggest dreams is other people.

Specifically, negative people.

Controlling people.

Manipulative people.

Or, as I like to call them collectively, dream-killers.

All varieties of toxic influence in the masked form of people that appear to be on your side. Read More


3 Ways You Can Maintain Your Autonomy In Relationships

Published by: Isaiah Hankel

Topics :Emotional Intelligence



“The purpose of a relationship is not to have another who might complete you, but to have another with whom you might share your completeness.”

Neale Donald Walsch (American Author, “Conversations With God”)

“The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.”

Michel de Montaigne (French Renaissance Writer)

“The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.”

Anthony Robbins (American Author & Speaker “Awaken The Giant Within”)

I like to think of myself as a strong individual.

I know who I am and what I want.

And I won’t sacrifice myself to anyone!

Well… unless I’m hungry.

Or tired.

Or if I want something really badly.

Like peace and quiet.

As tough as I think I am, I feel the urge to compromise on myself constantly.

Something as small as wanting a hamburger is enough to make me want to give up on a goal sometimes.

But being hungry isn’t what worries me.

Being constantly stressed and miserable is what worries me.

Being in an awful relationshi...
