It’s incredible how many times I’ve heard people [especially in the corporate professions such as transport, law, IT, banking, and a few others] tell me that they were worried about people who take a degree in psychology, because psychology was too wishy-washy, uncertain for the prospect of getting secure jobs on the basis of a degree in it, and somewhat not as important as were their professions [of course they'd say that, but that's another story]. So the core argument was ‘we need lawyers, we need IT almighties, we need transport, we need bankers, but we don’t really need psychologists’. These same people would also tell me that the number of people who go for a degree in psychology is the highest of all degrees simply because psychology is the easiest degree to get and if one wants a degree for the sake of the paper to give them the passport to a job in any field, a degree in psychology is an obvious choice without needing too much effort. But then… Read the rest of this entry »

The inventor of the idea of sex education being taught from early grades in mainstream education thought that it’d be beneficial to societies in the same way as I’ve been maintaining for years that teaching NLP from early grades in schools would. So how? What payback would governments get in the long term if they invested in the implementation of this idea? Read the rest of this entry »

Your major source of stress in life is the fear of rejection, criticism, and disapproval. This fear of rejection manifests itself in an overconcern for the (dis)approval of others. The fear of rejection is often learned in early childhood as the result of a parent giving the child what psychologists call conditional love. Many parents made the mistake of giving love and approval to their children only when their children did something that the parents wanted them to do. A child who has grown up with this kind of conditional love tends to seek unconditional approval from others all his / her life. When the child becomes an adult, this need for approval from the parent is transferred to the workplace and onto the boss. The adult employee can then become preoccupied with the boss’s opinion. This preoccupation can lead to an obsession to perform to some undetermined high standard.
This behavior varies from mild to extreme forms. People who display forms on the extreme end of the continuum usually put so much pressure on themselves to perform in order to please their bosses / partners / others that they burn themselves out. They often die of heart attacks before the age of 60. This behavior, triggered by conditional love in childhood, is a very serious stress-related phenomenon in the Western workplace.
2 things you can do immediately to deal with the fear of rejection, criticism, and disapproval:
- realize and accept that the opinions of others are not important enough for you to feel stressed, unhappy, or overconcerned about them. Even if they dislike you entirely, it has nothing to do with your own worth and value as a person.
- refuse to be overconcerned about what you think people are thinking about you. In reality, most people are not thinking about you at all. Relax and get on with your life.

If you travel by air, you know that when your plane takes off, the pilot tells all the passengers to stay in their seats with their seatbelts buckled. At times during the flight the pilot will warn “We expect some turbulence for a few moments, so please stay buckled up.” When you start any new lifestyle, job, business, or transition, you too will experience turbulence.

One of the greatest success principles of all is the law of accumulation. This law dictates that everything great and worthwhile in human life is an accumulation of thousands of tiny efforts and sacrifices that nobody ever sees or appreciates. Everything accumulates over time. You have to put in many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile. It’s like a snowball. A snowball starts very small, but it grows as it adds millions of tiny snowflakes and continues to grow as it gathers momentum. Read the rest of this entry »
