Everyone who is dedicated to achieving their goals dreams of success. And with this devotion, there also comes a feeling of dread regarding the worst possible outcome of any situation. This is what is commonly known as fear of failure, and it can actually be beneficial when used correctly. So, how can this negative sensation be used as a driving force? Let’s find out. Why Failure Is Motivation It’s no secret that many people feel that the fear of failure is detrimental to progress. But that is only half true. The complete discussion tends to be a bit more nuanced than that. According to a 2013 study, this behavior leads to maladaptive strategies such as underachieving and disengagement only when paired with a lack of firm goals. As an entrepreneur, I have had my fair share of both successes and failures in life.
Henry David Thoreau once said that “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” I find this to be overwhelmingly accurate for myself. Travelling is the sweet state of limbo, where for a few days or weeks you live in another world. It’s an escape. It’s shedding your comforts to find your freedom. And for as long as I can remember, I have been exploring the world around me. I spent my childhood in the mountains of Idaho poking at bugs, running from snakes, and swimming in glacier lakes. I spent my teenage years doing much of the same. And my adult years I spent travelling from state to state for work. However, as a life-long adventurer, I suffer from this annoying, but fairly severe character quirk called anxiety. Through my years of battling this menace, I have learned how to calm myself when I'm freaking the eff out on the road. Here’s how you too can travel when travelling gives you anxiety:
Why self-knowledge is so important for everyone and how to gain knowledge of self-are the two issues that psychologists are asked most often! In fact, today a lot of people really understand that without self-knowledge they can't develop their personality and this is the main reason why they usually turn for psychological care looking for the professional responses to these questions.Many famous and successful people have already expressed their thoughts regarding self-knowledge and self-improvement. Some of such statements became rather popular. And if you surf the Internet, you may find hundreds of amazing quotes about self-knowledge meaning. In the last little while I have searched and consumed the contents of the most interesting quote sites and now I wish to quote, in my mind, the best one: Self-knowledge is the beginning of self-improvement.

In this century, there is no argument that mental health and physical health overlap one another. The World Health Organization has gone as far to say that “there is no health without mental health.” The truth is, mental health and physical health are entangled in one another. So when thinking about ways to encourage self-motivation, we must learn how to play on the psychology of the mind. Finding the motivation to complete a workout or a task at work can be difficult...
The reality of life is that we are only here temporarily. Whether you like it or not, the ONLY thing certain in life is death – everything else is a probability. Will you have a job tomorrow? Maybe. Will you even wake up tomorrow? Maybe. Will you be able to get to age 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90? Maybe and the list goes on. It’s quite morbid to think about life this way and honesty the first time you begin to think about life as a very uncertain cobweb of cause and effect you will likely feel more anxious and a bit unnerved. But I honestly feel there is more benefit then loss with removing this fake veil of certainty and hubristic ignorance that covers the lives of most people. With death on the mind – life becomes more finite – and therefore more precious. Your problems compared to the infinite which is death begin to look less vicious and eventually your mind begins to focus on the things that are truly important. So why don’t you start this transformation now and better your life?
Friendship is an extraordinarily unique type of feeling which is very different from just love. While it’s possible to be in love with someone and not be their best friend, it’s impossible to have friendship with someone and NOT love them.

The reason behind this is that while love just happens, you still have a bit of control when it comes to friendship.
