Yes, there is so much pain due to uncertainty (lots of efforts for no results, etc.), however pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. Instead of complaining being demotivated tweak it to being genuinely curious about upcoming life's gifts.

Coaching Through Grief

Something so harrowing happened today that I can't get it off my mind. I took the children to watch the Tour de France come tearing through the tiny country lanes in a neighbouring village and I ended up comforting a woman as she watched her husband slipping away before her very eyes. I just can't comprehend what she must be feeling right now.

I truly believe if I'd listened to my own negativity, and if I'd not gone to see the agent, I'd never have got past the first interview stage. Instead, I decided to believe in my ability and as a result I got down to the final two - out of hundreds of applicants.

The Fear of Disability Keeps People Safe

As a child I remember all those public service adverts aimed at children to keep us safe, and in particularly the Green Cross code. The message of the Green Cross code was simply, cross the road safely or you may be killed or become injured, or even worse, end up disabled.

Imagine waking up on Christmas morning with the same energy and excitement that you had as a child... I believe that this is something we can all experience, if we consciously make an effort to connect with a sense of inner peace amidst the surrounding chaos.

Do You Ask Yourself Enough, 'What Do I Want?'

Gina Lyons | Posted 08.02.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Gina Lyons

Ask any sports star or pop star what they want and, without hesitation, they will say a 'Gold' or 'No. 1.' They set ambitions and then go about achieving them. I'm not saying we should all want a number one song in the charts, but shouldn't we all be setting goals for ourselves? Join a gym? Learn how to cook properly? Find a hobby?

How to Set Goals You Can Achieve

Maggie Currie | Posted 29.11.2013 | UK Lifestyle

Some people prefer to set one or two large goals, and put all their energy and focus into those. The number of goals you set is more to do with your personality than with your likelihood of success. Whichever you choose is fine, each is equally successful, if you follow this process...

Change Your Thoughts to Change Your Life

By replacing old negative thought patterns with new positive ones you create new neurological pathways and can literally rewire your brain. It is as simple as noticing your thoughts, identifying whether they are supportive and then choosing to change anything that might be holding you back.

Why Can't Disabled People Be Positive?

We are either heroic paralympians or more likely miserable benefit claimants living a life comparable to being in a Victorian work house. But disabled people are three dimensional characters who have plenty to offer society, plenty of wonderful experiences to enjoy, and can lead amazing lives in a way that is just normal.

It has become regular media fodder to bemoan the current employment market for young people. We rattle off the statistics with such frequency that we forget that behind each number is a fresh and eager young person seeing their future and their potential, drift further out of their grasp.

Ten Reasons Why It's Fun to Suffer From Depression

Depression, after all, is rubbish, which is why it is called depression and not "Jolly Face Fever" or "Chronic chortles." But does it have to be totally terrible? Can depression actually be fun? Well, as you can guess from the contentious headline next to my byline photo, I say yes! Yes, it can!

How often do we go through our days feeling as though the whole world is against us? It can sometimes just take one minor incident to take us off track and we allow our entire day to go into a negative spiral at times. Remember, only YOU have the power to change YOUR life.

Why Everyone Should Get Out of London... Occasionally

This morning I arrived back to London after a month away. I had been traveling for 48 hours straight. I was a little tired to say the least. I turned on my phone; it was like welcoming an old friend (an old friend that had been relegated to an occasional acquaintance for the last 4 weeks due to international roaming charges). A call came through almost immediately.

I'd like to think that, if I'm lucky enough to exceed the age of 80, with all my marbles and my more important faculties all present and correct, I'll be cut some slack in the matter of my more treasured bad habits. I'll feel that, having survived so long indulging my relatively few vices, I might as well head for the exit in a like manner.

It would be very easy to slip into depression and wallow in self pity, bringing everyone down, but I absolutely refuse to let Parkinson's get the upper hand. I find it far more worthwhile to remain cheery, which keeps me going; boosting my family's morale and all those around me.

I write with stark raw honesty and humour about living with chronic disease and was astonished at the heart-warming reception my little book with its big message received. I quickly realised that fellow sufferers and caregivers related to my poems, knowing they are not alone in their daily struggles.

Hidden Barriers to Learning

Elena Barbiero

As young or mature adult learners, I think it's very important to do some self-assessment here and then, and check that what we believe to be true is not in fact a construct of our underlying fears: we do create barriers for ourselves for example when we are scared of being seen as incompetent or foolish.
