3 Action Steps To End Bad Habits For Good

Habits, bad or good, develop over time. In other words, doing something once or twice doesn't constitute a life-change either way. If you've ever tried to end a "bad" one, you know that it can be challenging, to say the least. However, it's important to remember that it's not impossible! I find that focusing on bringing new, serving ways of doing things helps to diminish the desire to continue bad habits. For example, eating healthy and exercising might curb someone's appetite for smoking cigarettes. I also believe the following 3 action steps are necessary to end bad habits for good.

5 Criminals That Stand In The Way Of Change And How To Remove Them

I know you've seen videos of protesters picketing or even physically blocking an entrance to a building or piece of land.Those who protest for a cause either want or need to stop something from changing or make it change. The result can go one of three ways depending on how peaceful the protest is: the protesters win and get their way, they don't and slip back into the crowd, or they get hauled away in paddy wagon. I picture these protesters gathering inside our minds when confronted with significant acts of change. Have you felt this crowd of free-thinkers protesting your dreams and goals? Are your efforts to do things differently frequently sabotaged by unseen troublemakers?

Introducing The Amazing Karen Tyrrell

When most people think of bullying, the first thing that usually comes to mind is bullying in the school – as in students picking on other students. But, sadly, bullying happens everywhere, and no-one is immune. thor Karen Tyrrell is the perfect example of this. Her first book Me & Her: a Memoir of Madness is based on her own experience as a teacher who suffered at the hands of some parents in her school at the time. Born in Sydney of poorly educated parents, Karen decided at the age of eight that she wanted to be a teacher, and she achieved this prior to becoming an author. She mentions that writing and speaking about mental health for both adults and kids became her driving force.

Another Bullying Victim Fights Back

One of the very many things I like most about what I do – combining the stories of emerging showbiz talents (and some more experienced) with the fight against bullying – is hearing and learning about some of these people. What some of them have been through – bullying – and how they rise above it. They sing their wonderful talents to show the world that all their nightmares/tormenters have done is help bring them through – help make them who and what they are. Proving to other victims worldwide that they are certainly not alone and that they can be whatever they want – if they put their minds to it. No-one can stop you, not if you really want it.
