Like many quotes, they both convey very good advice but need to be taken in context. They're short and punchy to help people remember them in times of need...but to be more useful they should come with a clarifying footnote such as: Don't fear failure, you are the only one to realise your own potential (So long as you're prepared, you have little to ...

If things get bad, follow these steps. If you can, print them out and keep them about your person, so you can read them again and again: If you get lost or confused when reading through this list, go back to the top and start again: Hang in there. Things can and will get better. If things don't get better immediately, be patient. Take things one day at a ...

Firstly - depression is actually quite normal, in that it's quite common and affects a lot of people at some stage of their life. It's a product of your brain chemistry, not a reflection of your personal worth. This is relevant so that you understand that the way that you thinking and feeling aren't a result of your essential essence, but is a product of ...

Nobody needs goals. It's just that if you say "I want to achieve X" you have defined a goal. And it's no use saying "I want to achieve X" if you are not prepared to do the work required to get there. Otherwise you could as well keep your mouth shut. And X either has a date, or you'd better set a date, otherwise you cannot plan the amount of work for each ...

Before I advice you, I will like the point out the fact that I was in a similar or maybe worse spot than you. I will probably understand what you mean by craving for attention. I even understand better when you say: you want don't want to be the uncool and unpopular guy. First and foremost: remind yourself, the only one you have to impress is yourself. ...

I think about suiciding almost everyday Swallow your pride and get professional help. Depending on what country you're in, your doctor can probably advize you. You cannot expect a bunch of strangers on the internet to give you meaningful advice based on the four paragraphs you wrote. You also cannot expect to solve this on your own (well, maybe you can, ...

You have very poorly written outcomes. Why are you learning to draw? Learn french etc? If its for fun, it doesnt sound like you are having it! Ive been here, the biggest realization for me was just because i want to learn something, doesnt mean that i have to learn it right now, or even at all. Think of your time an energy as a currency to buy improvement ...

Be conscious about your processes. Everything we do is a process, with one input, one output, and something that happens in between. Once you are aware of that, you can start to tinker the system to see what works better for you. Personal example: I used to be an avid reader, but now I hardly find time for it. I've made several attempts to create a habit ...

First thing to always keep in mind: keep it realistic. If you are not prepared to deal with reality of space an time, stop reading now, because you will not find a solution to this issue. Second: If you have too many things to do, drop some. You will have to determine which goals are really important to you and drop the rest. You will have rough estimate of ...

This is from my experience - take what you like - leave the rest Making decisions about what to do or prioritizing things is not a trivial matter and a very good question. There are basically 2 ways to go about it - 1. Pick what you feel is right and good, then go with it. 2. Do some deeper work to figure out some things about yourself then act out of ...

The idea behind not quitting your job until you find another one has two benefits: you don't have to explain why you quit or why you're unemployed in your next interview and also takes some of the emotional and financial pressure off of you. Just because you're not afraid of failure is no reason to make things harder than necessary. If Arnold really wanted ...

First I would like you to know that you are not an attention seeker. We all have that need to be recognized and be seen, for you I don't think people ever give you that much attention or not a lot ever talks to you or recognize your achievements, guessing from what you wrote your a high school student who does not have a lot of friends(I used to be like that ...

I agree that you should talk to a doctor. Also, talk to your teacher. Sleeping in class or asking too advanced questions are distracting to the teacher. If you are bored, maybe he/she can suggest something you can do. It might be something outside of class though. Because the class has clear goals and advanced topics likely aren't in them. Or maybe there is ...
