You deserve to be loved not only by those around you but by the most important person in your life — YOU.

7 Life-Changing Lessons From My Life’s Lowest Point

My marriage was broken. The person I had spent a good portion of my life with was no longer in it. The life that began after the move was a new one. And it began where all great change and growth begins – at the absolute lowest point in my life.

Of course, now, I realize this has been the greatest period of growth and development. Through the months of isolation, waterfalls of tears and periods self-loathing and doubt, I had survived it. Here are at least seven ways I survived my life’s lowest point.

Change Your Life By Breaking This One Pattern

We have all been guilty of passing judgment on both ourselves and others. We judge ourselves for where we’re at in life, or we judge others on their actions and lifestyle choices. In truth, judgement is not a freeing feeling, it confines both us and the people we place judgment upon. On a deeper level, humans operate on vibrations and frequencies. Simply put, we are energy and therefore we are very sensitive to the energy that comes from our thoughts and words. The thoughts we have and the words we speak are much deeper than a simple spoken word or thought, they hold power and affect both us and/or whoever we are speaking to.

Hack Your Brain’s Default Mode with Meditation

Dan Harris explains the neuroscience behind meditation, but reminds us that the ancient practice isn’t magic and likely won’t send one floating into the cosmic ooze. He predicts that the exercise will soon become regularly scheduled maintenance, as commonplace as brushing your teeth or eating your veggies. Harris, an ABC News correspondent, was turned on to mediation after a live, on-air panic attack. His latest book is “10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works–A True Story.”

30 Days to Success

A powerful personal growth tool is the 30-day trial.

It’s also a great way to develop new habits, and best of all, it’s brain-dead simple.

We all know that getting started and sticking with the new habit for a few weeks is the hard part. Once you’ve overcome inertia, it’s much easier to keep going…
