Stop Living in the Past

You are now a certain age. May be you feel your time is long gone; you feel old. May be you feel you are losing your youthfulness as days progress; life’s responsibilities have started to burden you with stress. May be you feel you are still way too young to know what you want out of life; right now you just want to explore and find yourself. Regardless, chances are there is some part of your past which runs your present and many times unknowingly affects how you visualize your future to be. It may be your health, relationships, finances, family values, or social life. But some part of you is always dwelt in past memories. Somewhere, somehow, this holds true for most of us. Isn’t that amazing!

It surprises me that we have patterns from

Why Do We Get Angry?

Before you read anything else, read the following and ponder over its meaning for a minute:

“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.” –Buddha

“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.” –Joel Osteen

“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” –Mark Twain

Everybody Gets Angry

Though nobody likes to get angry, the truth is we all do. Everyday things, people, and unexpected situations frustrate us; we lose our temper, and let our anger take us over. But, when we cool down, we almost always regret what we said and how we reacted. It’s amazing how justified we feel about our reasons to be angry in the moment. But, what follows is usually embarrassment. Do you ever wonder what triggers the anger in us? Why do we get angry over little things giving them undue attention?

Primitive Reasons Behind Anger

why do we get angry inside the article picture

According to an article on, a website dedicated to dealing with crucial problems within American youth and families, we have a thinking part to the brain (cerebral cortex), and an emotional one (limbic system) where the latter is more primitive. The information from the outside world is first passed through amygdala (storehouse for emotional memories) which is present in the limbic system. If the incoming data triggers enough of an emotional charge, the amygdala overrides the thinking cortex causing the person to react in a more primitive way which is what causes the rage.

In continuity, a study from National Geographic’s TV blog states that the reason for this rage lies in the understanding that anger was actually a useful development for the survival of the human species. According to theories, anger helped our ancestors compete for critical resources for survival, from food to mates, helping them prevail in the natural selection race.

The above information helps us understand the reasons behind why do we get get angry. That is the first step: understanding. Now, it is time to go beyond just understanding. Knowledge without its correct use is as good as not having it. The next step it to comprehend how to control and then win over your anger. To do so, continue to read here.

True Love

It may sound silly, but it is an important question: Have you ever truly loved someone? It doesn’t matter if the person also loves you; your love is enough. True love is not competition; it is not conditional; it is simple and pure. Most often when we talk about love, we think of romantic love. It is almost always an automatic interpretation. Not that it is the only kind (there is brotherly love, sisterly love, love for your friends, parents and teachers.) But since it is the one that does, or at some point in time has, influenced most of us in ways deeper than others, I want to dedicate this article to what in a few words can be referred to as ‘Romance: An Eternal Love Affair.’

Self-Discipline and Self-Control

It is way too often true that even enlightened souls who have developed the awareness to change and who plan on working towards a truly successful life in all aspects (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) are not able to do so. As tough as it sounds, the fact is that awareness and planning are only the first steps. If one wants to really be successful

Great Lives Are Built On Great Habits

One of my most productive habits is to read everyday. A minimum of one to two hours of my day is dedicated to reading the best books on various subjects that interest me including self-help, motivation, leadership, business (auto) biographies of legends of the past and the present, relationships, and my new found interest in stocks and investments. Twenty minutes in to my readings and I feel a new high. I feel immensely motivated, inspired, more knowledgeable and powerful. Science says similar motivation occurs after a workout and the reason to it is that when we involve ourselves in such activities, our body produces and releases dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins-the neurotransmitters responsible for happiness. These activities make us feel good about ourselves. But here is another fact
