Finding Purpose [Is Purpose Necessary?]

INTRODUCTION“What IS my purpose in life, anyway?” I asked my therapist. She replied, “Your cats need you.” I scoffed, at least initially.

And for all that, of me, for whichContinue reading “Finding Purpose [Is Purpose Necessary?]”

My exposureContinue reading “Success: It’s the Thrill of the Chase”

In America, we do NOT use the Gold Standard, because there simply isn’t enough gold on the planet toContinue reading “On Life and “Value””

In school, you are first taught a lesson and then tested. But in life, you are tested first, and THEN taught a lesson. INTRODUCTIONI have read that it takes FIVE positive thoughts or incidents to offset only ONE that is negative. Our brains have a bias toward the negative. I don’t know why, but suspectContinue reading “Finding the Positive Within the Negative, Reacting, and Responding”
