5 Reasons Why You're Unhappy -- and How You Can Start Being Happy Today

5 Reasons Why You're Unhappy -- and How You Can Start Being Happy Today

So maybe you have the awesome house or apartment, a great relationship, and an amazing job. But despite the fact that everything in your life looks so great on “paper” or upon someone viewing your Facebook or Instagram accounts, for some reason, somehow your just not happy.

What I’ve come to realize that while our societal views on what constitutes a happy and successful person, it’s rare that someone who actually fulfills all of those things are going to be genuinely happy. Our true happiness is not determined by our external circumstances, but rather our internal focus.

So here are 5 reasons why you may be unhappy — and how you can start being happy today:

#1 - You’re living in the past or future

Out of all the reasons in this list, I think this one is the most impactful of our level of happiness than all of them.

You’re focused on what you did have in the past or what you could have in the future rather than what you have right now. Your mind is focused on how things were so great back in “the good ol’ days.” Or, you’re focused on the idea of how things will be great “someday” in the future.

The reality is that by focusing our attention on the past and the future, all it does is prevent us from really living in and enjoying the present moment, which is the key to really living and being from a place of true joy and happiness.

So when you catch yourself thinking about how...

6 Ways Nice People Can Master Conflict

6 Ways Nice People Can Master Conflict

When you’re a nice person, conflict can be a real challenge. Not that mean people are any better at conflict; they just enjoy it more.

New research from Columbia University shows that how you handle conflict can make or break your career. The researchers measured something scientifically that many of us have seen firsthand—people who are too aggressive in conflict situations harm their performance by upsetting and alienating their peers, while people who are too passive at handling conflict hinder their ability to reach their goals.

The secret to effective handling of conflict is assertiveness—that delicate place where you get your needs met without bullying the other person into submission. Assertive people strike a careful balance between passivity and aggression (that is, they never lean too far in either direction).

How To Handle Conflict Assertively

It’s easy to think that nice people are too passive. While that’s often true, unchecked passivity can boil over into aggression....

The 6 Things A Highly Sensitive Child Needs Most

The 6 Things A Highly Sensitive Child Needs Most

Dear Parents of Highly Sensitive Children,

There is nothing wrong with your child. Both you and your child need to know that—really know that. Below are the six things I think a highly sensitive child might need from you the most.

1) Love us for who we are.

We actually feel things more deeply than most of the population. High sensitivity is a biological trait, not a choice.

Don’t assume that we’re just like you and that what worked for you will work for us. We can’t control how deeply we feel. We can’t decide when to stop feeling or which feelings not to have even when it appears as though we’ve got them under control.

When we try to suppress what makes us who we are, we risk losing the gifts that come with our temperaments.

Highly sensitive does not mean overly sensitive. What is normal, anyway? We know you want us to be happy, but trying to stop us from feeling badly is only a temporary solution. Where are all those feelings supposed to go?

If we’re fed the message that there’s an easier, better way to be, we’ll believe you and feel like something needs to be fixed. Help us embrace our “thin skin” and recognize that there’s nothing wrong with having it.

2) Listen to your intuition and not the “experts.”

Experts might tell you that we need therapy, or psychiatry, or that we’re bipolar, or have ADD, or need medication, or...

How to Shut Down a Colleague Who Takes Credit for Your Work

How to Shut Down a Colleague Who Takes Credit for Your Work

Has this ever happened to you? You’re in a meeting and the unthinkable happens: a colleague claims credit for your work.

As you reel from the shock of what just occurred, your self-talk goes into overdrive. “How dare they. The audacity!” you say to yourself as you start to play out the consequences in your mind. “What does the rest of the team suppose my role was? Making the coffee?”

But in the time it takes to come to grips with what just happened, something even more critical occurs: The moment passes. The team moves on to a new topic. The time for speaking up and publicly correcting the “mistake” has passed. Everyone “knows” who owned the accomplishment, and it’s not you.

Prevent it from happening again


There’s really only one sure-fire method of preventing this from happening, and it is to preemptively, publicly, claim credit for everything you do.

At the Executive Women International Academy of Leadership conference last week, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, keynote speaker (and all-round awesome lady) Fawn Germer said “If you don’t take credit for what you do, it is likely that someone else will.”

To be completely realistic, though, I understand that are many very reasonable reasons why you may not...

The 7 Things Tech Companies Need To Realize About Older Workers

The 7 Things Tech Companies Need To Realize About Older Workers

Ageism runs rampant through Silicon Valley, where older workers are frequently overlooked for jobs. The Huffington Post asked Rick Devine, CEO and founder of  Talent Sky — and the man responsible for recruiting Tim Cook to Apple in 1998 — for his views on how attitudes need to change.

Devine noted that these tips apply to companies who currently employ older workers, as well as those who are hiring but tempted not to consider them.

1. Realize that technology marches on for everyone, not just older workers.

The myth is that the technological revolution left older workers in the dust, and that they simply can’t keep up with change as well as the so-called digital natives.

Here’s a news flash: “The skills of all workers of all ages in all positions in all industries...

No. Don't quit your job... yet.

No. Don't quit your job... yet.

This is not a race.
You don’t have to run toward your passion.
Your ‘dream life,’ your purpose, and passion, are not vanishing in front of you... not any time soon.

These days, there is a certain fury around the terms: ‘passion’ and ‘purpose.’
We are all pursuing our passion.
And we are running toward it. In a mad rush.

We are rushing to get out of boring corporate jobs,
jumping into the open field of the unknown,
while new age marketers promise visions of wealth and fame on the other side.
Strangers on Facebook ads tell us to quit our jobs, because we can make a million dollars, while sitting in a Bali beach-side resort.

These people are not making the grass look greener on the other side.
They are making it look like a gold mine.
And we are rushing for the treasure.

Quitting your job to go chase your dream: It’s the new Holy Grail.
It’s great.
But remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Your dream, career, and life, are no exception to the rule.

So before you quit your job,
before you jump into the nebulous cloud of a dream life in Bali, or the vision of saving the world with a wink of the eye, please consider this:

Success builds slowly,
behind the scenes,
specially when nobody is watching.

Over the past two years, I have interviewed almost one hundred people who walked conscientiously, not jumped,...

A Look At Why People Are Two Faced: The Real Person Behind The Smile.

A Look At Why People Are Two Faced: The Real Person Behind The Smile.

Friends or Foes?

Why are people two faced? What makes someone suddenly turn from being a friend into an enemy? Is it because they have always been sly, or do they really believe you have slighted them in some way?

People are strange creatures, we learn to behave early on in life, and manners are one of the main things that our parents teach us.

Throughout our lives we meet lots of different personalities. Some we automatically get on with, and others we take an aversion to straight away.

But what of the people we believe are our friends? What makes them suddenly turn against you even if you believe there is nothing wrong. And especially if you haven't argued, or seen them for a few days?

What on earth do we do? Well, don't panic. Here's a few tips on how to resolve the problem of a two faced friend.

The Psychology Of Two Faces!

Why do we never see a two faced person coming? We may have been friends or colleagues for months or even years, but there has never been any indication that this person is going to turn, and turn badly on us.

The trouble seems to be when a third person gets involved. I believe that the relationship between the two people will work as it has to balance even in a slightly crooked way. But add to the ingredients, a third...

13 Refreshing Takes On The Mint Julep

13 Refreshing Takes On The Mint Julep

Don’t be fooled by the mint julep’s sprig of mint and fancy pewter cup — it is not a frilly cocktail. Made with a little bit of sugar, lots of ice and a heavy dose of bourbon, this refreshing drink aims to please everyone. And that it does, especially on a hot day. While the cocktail’s origin is disputed, one thing we know for sure is that it hails from the American South, where they desperately need a cure for hot summer days.

The mint julep is the traditional cocktail of the Kentucky Derby, but we think this iconic American cocktail deserves attention on the other 364 days of the year as well — especially because it can be made with unlimited flavors, like rhubarb, blood orange and even sweet tea.

We pulled together some of our favorite mint julep recipes, both classic and variations, to help you enjoy this cocktail every day of the year. Even if you don’t own a pewter cup.

Bangladesh Hangs Islamist Party Leader For Genocide

Bangladesh Hangs Islamist Party Leader For Genocide

Bangladesh hanged an Islamist party leader, Motiur Rahman Nizami, on Wednesday for genocide and other crimes committed during a 1971 war of independence from Pakistan, drawing an angry reaction and some scattered violence from supporters.

Nizami, head of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, was executed at Dhaka Central jail just after midnight after the Supreme Court rejected his final plea against a death sentence imposed by a special tribunal for genocide, rape and orchestrating the massacre of intellectuals during the war.

Nizami, 73, a former legislator and minister during opposition leader Khaleda Zia’s last term as prime minister, was sentenced to death in 2014.

Five opposition politicians, including four Jamaat leaders, have been executed since late 2013 after being convicted by the war crimes tribunal, which was set up by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in 2010.

Bangladesh hanged Islamist party leader Motiur Rahman Nizami for genocide, rape and orchestrating the massacre of intellectuals during the country’s 1971 war of independence.

International human rights groups say the tribunal’s procedures fall short of international standards but the government rejects that and the trials are supported by many Bangladeshis.

Hundreds of people flooded the streets of the capital to cheer the execution.

“We have waited for this day for a long 45 years,” said war veteran Akram Hossain. “Justice has finally been served.”
