You studied very hard for an examination and when the results came out, you got a "C", get over it!
You ask a girl out on a date and she turns you down, get over it! There are a million other girls out there willing to go on a date with you.
Your girlfriend or boyfriend just broke up with you for no reason, get over it. He/she may not be the right one for you.
You post your picture on social media and few to no people liked it or commented on

This world is just like a big movie in reality. There are different scenes of the movie playing out in different locations around the world.
Only God can watch every part of this complex movie. Each individual only watches a unique part of the movie which can NEVER BE watched by any other person but the individual. Think about that for a second.
Everything going on around you is watched by you uniquely! Even if someone had been going to the same places with you all your life, you

It's impossible to make other people happy when you're unhappy yourself. It's important that we all understand the fact that our own happiness is very important.
Most people would like to buy into the idea of sacrificing their own happiness so that other people will be happy.
I think this idea is flawed because in sacrificing your own happiness, you end up unhappy while trying to make other people happy. Does it make sense to you?
Why do we often forget that it's very possible to make other people happy while also being

I think the reason why the problems we face in life stick around for too long is that we focus too much on them instead of focusing on their solutions.
If I want to solve a math question, I don't stay there lamenting about how large the question is or how difficult it looks or how lengthy the process to solve it entails. I only look at the

A girl played a prank on me recently. When I gave her my phone, she downloaded her profile picture on Facebook, logged into my Whatsapp account and changed my own profile picture with hers without my knowledge.
I didn't often log into my Whatsapp and the few times I did, I didn't bother to check my profile picture, so I was oblivious of what had

While playing a game of Billiards with some friends at a game center, I overheard someone complaining about how hopeless the situation in our country was. He was thoroughly convinced that nothing else could be done and there was no hope that things would ever be better.
I was just positioning myself to hit the cue ball with my stick, but when I thought about what he said and the few people who were nodding

This article was originally posted by me as a guest post on the website www.pickthebrain.com .
Here are eight ways to develop a strong mental attitude:
1. Love Yourself The Way You Are
This seems so obvious but very difficult for most people to do. Most people hate themselves and their lives. They hate their looks, their jobs, their country and sometimes life itself. This attitude greatly affects their outlook on life and they see negativity in everything.
This is simply because they've not accepted their realities. You have to love yourself the way you are and accept whatever life has dealt

Some days after I wrote my most liked Facebook Post, I simply became afraid to write again. Ideas came, but I was reluctant to put them down. Why? Because I've been too conscious of not writing another article which will not be as good as that one.
But then, If I stopped writing because I feared that I wouldn't meet that same standard, then I may never write again.
After thinking about this fresh phobia for some time, I felt funny and a bit naive.
In truth, there was nothing to be afraid of. Whether people liked my posts or not, it didn't

It's sad that in rapidly developing world like ours, few people actually know their purpose in life whereas the majority of people do not.
When few people know their purpose, they can only solve a tiny fraction of the various problems in our world, but imagine a world where most people know exactly their various

What I'm about to tell you happened yesterday in town when I went to use my ATM at a Diamond bank branch. I walked into the ATM booth with a friend of mine Daniel.
We were quite discouraged at the crowd outside waiting to withdraw money, but compared to the previous banks we've checked

The problem with most people is that they wait for God to come down himself and do stuff for them. They just fold their arms, do nothing and wait for Him to do it. It's crazy, really crazy.
I came across this short story online and I think it paints the full picture of why some people are trapped in the same damn situation.
Once upon a time, there was a man who lived in a house very close to a river. After a heavy storm, the water level rose very high and an announcement came over the radio urging

What if I told you the simple no-nonsense way to get anything you ever wanted? What if I let you in on the secret? What would you do with the knowledge?
Many people around the world today are asking questions and trying to find out how to get what they want. You'd be amazed at the large number of people who are clueless as regards how to achieve success.
It's time for you personally to stop asking questions and simply face the answer I'm giving

Many people around the world today want to live the life of their dreams. We all have in our minds a picture of the kind of life we want.
Few lucky people are those who are successfully living that way, while majority are still struggling to attain it. From practical

Everyone on earth faces a challenge in one way or another. It's impossible to live without facing a challenge in any way. What really matters is how we respond to it. Consider the short story below:
A farmer once had a troublesome donkey which always gave him a headache. One fateful
