Stop setting yourself up for stress and failure, and start setting up your life to support success and ease. A great life is the result of using the 24/7 you get in a creative and thoughtful way, instead of just what comes next.

Charity, A Hearty Flow Monday Jun 09, 2014

If you have not seen the West Somerset Heritage Railway you should do so for one reason: what it means to share joy with others.

This steam railway runs on a cute little 20-mile track, winding through the breathtakingly scenic countryside of Southwest England. And equally adorable is the team of volunteers that runs the railway.

Yes, this railway is completely run by volunteers, which means unpaid workers. The first thing I noticed when I boarded the train was the genuine smile on the faces of this middle-aged staff. More

Teaching Your Child Charity Monday Jun 09, 2014

Helping kids share their good fortune with others may be the most important money lesson of all

All kids are born with an innate sense of charity and compassion. Sure, it's easy to lose sight of that fact as we listen to our little ones clamor for the hottest toys, tastiest treats, and trendiest clothes. But if we look closely, the signs are everywhere. Watch your 2-year-old stop to offer a wailing baby a comforting toy. Catch your 5-year-old consoling a pal who has just been walloped by a playground bully.

"Children naturally look for ways to make a contribution and help others," says Deborah Spaide, founder of Kids Care Clubs,..More

42 Practical Ways To Improve Yourself

Are you someone who likes to grow? Do you constantly seek to improve yourself and become better?

If you do, then we have something in common. I’m very passionate about personal growth. It was just 4 years ago when I discovered my passion for growing and helping others grow.

Five Benefits Charity Provides

Giving to charity benefits yourself as much or more than it benefits those to whom you give. That reason alone should be sufficient to justify starting now. If you need more convincing, read on:

1. Giving to a charity helps make our communities better places to live by helping to provide goods and services to people who might not otherwise have access to them. When we raise the standard of living for the the least able among us, we raise our own standard of living in turn. More

Grit is more Important than Talent

All of the children wanted to wait. (Who doesn’t want more treats?) But many couldn’t. After just a few minutes or less, their resolve would break down and they would eat the marshmallow. But some kids were better at delaying gratification: They were able to hold out for the full 15 minutes.

When the researchers subsequently checked in on these same children in high school, it turned out that those with more self-control — that is, those who held out for 15 minutes — were better behaved, less prone to addiction, and scored higher on the SAT. More

Random Acts of Smiles

Last week, an elderly stranger, perhaps in her late 70's or 80's, held my hand.

A few friends and I made the last-minute decision to attend a baseball game and purchased the cheapest tickets we could find. With seats so high up in the stadium, there was no question that we were there for laughter and junk food, rather than the game itself. It was the end of a long workday, and we sat in a clump towards the end of a row, which, of course, required us to stand every time someone in the inner seats needed to get up. After an hour and a half, I grew tired of standing whenever a neighbor needed to exit and started to pull my legs up the side or squeeze myself into a ball on the seat... More
