Family Are Regular People Too

by Shanna Star

One of the hardest parts of remembering who I am and pursuing my purpose on earth was realizing that not everybody was going to be accepting of me. In being proud of myself, i assumed everybody was going to be proud of me. To my dismay, I quickly learned that speaking your truth is frowned upon by those who have yet to address their shadows, thus forcing you to draw boundaries on what treatment you will allow from others. We have been taught to hold family at a different standard than others because they are family. What I have learned is that you cannot allow treatment from family that is any less than you would allow from a stranger because family are regular people too. You must stand up for yourself and stand firm in your beliefs to be an example of true love and respect for yourself. Love is the only effective way to create change.

EQUILIBRIUM: What Makes People Do Things They Shouldn’t Do (Handwriting Expert)

by Manhardeep Singh

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” This is the principle on which EQUILIBRIUM answers What Makes People Do Things They Shouldn’t Do

The book unveils 20+ personality traits along with their specific reasons that actually cause someone to behave in a particular way. Such traits includes but is not limited to anger, cheating, obstinate, sarcasm etc.

Reading EQUILIBRIUM, you will be able to:
– Understand why someone might be doing something they normally shouldn’t do
– Find peace as you realize the other’s point of view
– Identify handwriting strokes that denote a particular personality trait
– Manage conflicts in a better way

EXCERPT:
It is so common to misunderstand someone’s action or just reacting without understanding why someone might have done something. I too was one among them, when ultimately I decided to change my POV (Point-Of-View). I tried to look through other’s eyes to get the answer of why they would have done something which is bothering me. To my surprise, whenever I contemplated about this, I always got the answer, and most of the times, finding this answer brought more peace in my life than it would have if I didn’t bother to change my perception.

To explain it in a better way, let me share with you a story. Once, there lived a couple in a house. The wife kept complaining about the neighbor’s dirty clothes. She kept complaining, “That lady doesn’t know how to wash clothes properly. She doesn’t even have proper eye sight to see that the clothes are still dirty.” This incident repeated for a couple of days when finally one day she said with a smile, “Well, seems like someone finally taught her how to wash clothes.” Her husband looked towards her and said, “Honey, nobody taught her how to wash clothes. I just cleaned our house’s window.”
Many a times, we are looking through the dirty window and feel that other person is wrong.

THE GOAL OF A MOVE
Before we start learning about what makes people do things they shouldn’t do, it is important to understand why someone would do something at the first place. Take an example of touching a hot pan. As soon as you feel the hotness, your body’s reflex action kicks in and the hand is automatically pulled away. You didn’t even do anything, then why such a move? It is a defense mechanism of the body to protect you from harm.

What happens when you are afraid or when you are doing an adventure sport, say bungee jumping, for instance? Your heart starts pounding against your ribs. Your senses get better. This is a “fight of flight” mode (no no not airplane mode) of your body. The body releases adrenaline hormone that prepares the body for action. This too is not under your control. It too is a defense mechanism of the body for survival. There might be so many other defense mechanisms of the body like these that help with our survival, whether it is white blood cells who work to fight bacteria or the platelets that clog off a cut, one thing is clear – they all are meant to keep us alive.

CHAPTER – 4: THE SUPER-SENSITIVE
Another personality which you might have met in life is the super-sensitive. They are the people who take everything to heart. They are passionate, no doubt, but at times become passionate about unnecessary stuff, such as being upset that they missed the first show of their favorite actor’s new movie. Not only just that, they will be upset for it for months, and sometimes even years! No kidding!

THE TRAIT:
In handwriting analysis, this trait is called the same – high sensitivity. It is common to see this trait in passionate people or people who get aggressive very easily. They make use of force and energy to get things done. They put in their strength in everything they do, including writing something.

The Balancing Truth, Love and Power: The Key to Achieving Goals that Matters to You

by Sameer Rathour

The Balancing Truth, Love and Power book is derived from one of the
most famous authors in the area of personal development, Steve
Pavlina.
The key point of this book is to understand Steve Pavlina’s
principles and apply it in a concise and straightforward way
in your life. The ideas in this book are not endorsed by Steve
Pavlina but are merely a take on the principles, how it
works – especially for the Internet era.
In his book, “Personal Development for Smart People” talks about the
7 principles in terms of effective development and if any of you apply
the strategies and principles, you will be amazed with the wonders
they can potentially bring to your life. The book lays down a very firm
foundation for the readers to understand the root causes on the
things that they do.
For instance, at times you will see people talking about the big plans
of their lives but after a few years, you never happen to see them
coming to pass. What are the reasons behind it? Also, do you really
know the motivation behind a person who is courageous? What are
some of the things that are actually stopping you from being who you
want to be today?
After reading the book, I understand why sometimes I behave in a
certain way. I used to be a very timid person and had problems
starting conversation with the people I met for the first time. I didn’t
know what the problem was until I found out there was actually a kind of fear in me that stops me from going all out to initiate a
conversation. It was the fear of rejection.
Of course, being able to identify the problem is only the first step and
it won’t really help me to overcome my fear of rejection. Nevertheless,
it gave me a direction on where I should work towards. The rest of the
story is history.
So what is the ultimate formula?
It is the balance between truth, love and power. One must weigh the 3
components in a balanced manner. When you have only truth without
love and power, your life remains unchanged.
You know exactly the kind of problems you are facing but you just do
not have the power to many the changes in you. Although, there is a
famous quote that goes, â??Love is Blind’, love isn’t really blind in
reality. You need to love the person correctly and that is why you need
truth and power to say no to his unhealthy request, like eating too
much fat. When you have power without truth and love, people will
suffer because power can be abused.
Those are some of the examples. Don’t worry if the above does not
make any sense to you at this moment. As you go through the entire
book, you will be able understand the balancing principles in depth.

Love Always

by Wendy Fountain

What’s the meaning of life? How’s it well-lived? Is there any secret to it? For me, the answer to these questions has revealed itself as one constant throughout my life; I’ve come to understand that no matter our situation, regardless of our virtues or our flaws, the common theme, the upshot, the moral of the story is always the same – to love always.

In this story, a series of letters and illustrations penned from the perspective of a parent to a child, or even a friend to friend, discuss some of the good (and not so good) personality traits of us all, while highlighting how loving always may help us through.
