posted a Quick Tip about Happiness. December 14, 2011
posted in WHAT CAN I SAY?
I was recently asked by two good friends of mine, "Will, what do you think would make you happy?" and "are you happy?"...I answered: "Happiness is an illusion and merely a state of mind".            I mean, the definition of happiness is different from the other. One would say happiness is having a good career and a family …

answered a question about Self-Esteem. November 23, 2010
Interesting question. Well, I don't think that that method that you mentioned from that research is the best way to measure self-esteem because I think self-esteem involves more than just happiness, …

answered a question about Self-Esteem. November 22, 2010
I think self-esteem is impossible to measure, and I'd find any "study" that portends to do so to be highly suspect. One's happiness with life? That's a bit of a stretch to make that any kind of variable …

Stumbling on Happiness
This is an enjoyable book that helps explain why we never seem to be as happy as we think we'll be in different situations.  For example, we always think we want more options (i.e., more brands or sizes) but at some point more makes us less happy as we struggle to decide among our options.  The book covers topics such as why the line in the grocery store always slows down once …

For a long time I struggled with self doubt. I honestly thought that I wasn't as good as anyone else and that everything I thought, was stupid. This kind of thinking is not only harmful to you but it can actually cause your life to become miserable. I thought that I didn't deserve anything good and that led me on a downward path that just kept taking me lower and lower. I ended up marrying a guy that …

The Self-Esteem Guided Journal: A Ten Week Program
Journaling is probably one of the best ways to learn about yourself and come to terms with who you really are, what you want to do with your life, and the obstacles that stand in your way. A dedicated journal writer often finds him or herself filling up numerous journals and notebooks full of writing. While this amount of writing may be quite useful in the search for self, often the writer finds him …
