    Interacting on Achology rather than facebook

    Wise choice @sarahroos (are you South African?) Working through Achology will definitely challenge me to up my game. It will make me participate in a more considered way than currently, which is to respond impulsively to interesting discussions.
  2. I've decided to make the change to interact exclusively on Achology. My Facebook feed is inundated with the PMP Community discussions and while I love reading them would rather uses this site to get the full benefit and use Facebook for social posts. I believe this to be a good choice and hope I still get to see the very topical and interesting communication from the ever growing community.
  3. Hello Achology friends, I received an email notifying me of the new Achology courses from Udemy. I will definitely subscribe for further learning. I can't find the one with Kain and Gerard, and don't want to miss it, but am not sure if it's available yet or still to be released through the Achology Forum? Does anyone know, or is it a surprise? Thanks in advance. Jenny

  5. 1. Healthy choices - food, excersise, routines, investing time in dreams, studying, love and gratitude, taking risks 2. Believing it's worth the effort - Just doing it! 3. To much negative thinking/emotions vs to little positive affirmation 4. Fears - laziness vs motivation, discipline vs self-sabotage, anger vs self-empowerment, self-pity vs love and gratitude
  6. After leaving the security of a job and regular income, overcoming low self esteem from bullying, coping with a family member who has a mental disability, and pushing through loss and grief - Participating in Achology has equipped me with valuable insights and given guidiance to help make sense of my emotions, fears, hopes and dreams. I consider it a win to be in the transition phase, totally freaked out and surrendering with faith. For me, every phase of life has a different horizon with obstacles and successes to master. By understanding the human condition this gives more meaning to the journey and endurance to see it through. Hopefully along the way I will be able to give back as much as I have received in return in my own funny way.

    Personal Mastery Habits - Faith

    Interesting talk.... Just do it (shitty)!
  9. I found this article interesting, highlighting tendencies in suicidal people and am adding it to my timeline for posterity. Im thinking maybe suicide will be a niche of mine! https://brightside.me/inspiration-psychology/8-symptoms-of-hidden-depression-that-everyone-can-experience-417660/?utm_source=fb_brightside&utm_medium=fb_organic&utm_campaign=fb_gr_5mincrafts 8 Symptoms of Hidden Depression That Everyone Can Experience Depression is a very serious disease. It can be confused with ordinary fatigue, but it also can hide under excessive workaholism or, on the contrary, feigned happiness. Sadness, a lack of initiative, and loss of physical and moral strength are just a few features of this sickness. Only a doctor can diagnose depression correctly, but you can notice this emotional disorder on your own. Bright Side decided to explore some less obvious symptoms of depression that can help to avoid its negative consequences. 8. Philosophical thoughts © TalindaB / twitter People who suffer from hidden depression usually try to talk about philosophical topics using abstract sentences. “Such things always happen to me,” instead of, “I don’t get enough sleep.” “There is no sense in it,” instead of, “I think I need to use another variant.” As a rule, depressed people like to talk about the meaning of life, and they do it all the time. And their words are often abstract and vague. Psychologists say that the more definite a person’s thoughts are, the more chances they have to be happy. 7. Searching for excuses © metelga / twitter Depressed people often use excuses to hide their real desires and sadness. For example, they compose touching stories about why they can’t go to a friend’s birthday party or why they can’t stay for lunch with colleagues. Convincing excuses serve as a cover so as not to bother anyone with your emotional condition. 6. The lack of an adequate reaction © Magnolia Pictures © Warner Brothers People with depression can interpret a surrounding reality in a different way. They can agree with everyone, stop expressing their opinion and desires, stop noticing insults, or not feel pain even if it’s inevitable: for example, when they lose a relative. 5. Psychosomatic diseases © drunktwi / twitter Being depressed, people usually complain about heart pain, tension in their hands and legs, breathing difficulties, a headache, a toothache, and other symptoms. As a rule, an examination shows that their health is fine. Various painful sensations point to an unstable condition. In turn, pain causes anxiety and tension, forming a vicious circle and making a person suffer from psychosomatic pain. 4. “Mental chewing gum” © Warnerbros In a depressed state, people obsess over certain things. They’re sure that they are searching for answers, but such obsessive thoughts can’t solve their problems. On the contrary, they create the illusion that they are trying to find an answer. It’s easy to notice that your relative or friend suffers from obsessive thoughts: a person is rather brooding, absentminded, speaks about one and the same problem, and doesn’t try to act instead of speaking. We can remember an example from Limitless. Bradley Cooper’s hero was obsessed with thoughts about writing a book and possible success. He plunged into apathy and stress, losing his relatives and friends one by one. 3. Untidy appearance © FOX A depressed state affects a person’s appearance. If a person stops following the rules of hygiene and doesn’t keep their home clean, you have reason to wonder whether everything is OK or not. This applies to people who never used to have problems with neatness. 2. A change in productivity © 20th Century Fox This is also a bad signal. A person can’t cope with everyday routine tasks, forgets information, often gets tired, and feels a senselessness in their actions. It also can be the opposite, when rather inactive people become workaholics with a tense schedule, trying to collect their achievements. They are trying to escape from their feelings and bring some sense to their life. 1. Ostentatious happiness © BBC People often try to hide their depression behind a positive mood. And, as a rule, they really look like the happiest and most carefree people in the world. They avoid serious conversations and laugh off difficult topics. You can understand and help them only during a long and trusting talk. How to help people and yourself: You can test yourself with the help of Beck’s Depression Inventory or the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale. If you realize that one of your friends or relatives is depressed, try to talk to them about their health and problems. Offer your help. If a person refuses everything, leave them alone for a while and observe their behavior. Don’t depreciate relatives’ and friends’ problems, and don’t joke. Such phrases as “cheer up,” “stop it,” and “calm down” don’t work here. Help with household duties and routine tasks: depression takes all of a person’s emotional and physical strength. Don’t make a depressed person lead an active lifestyle if they’re not ready. Take pauses in your relationship with a depressed person so as not to adopt their condition. Debunk the myths that it’s not necessary to visit a doctor. Suggest professional help. Be caring. Each smile and perfect post on Instagram can hide serious problems.

    Ego death

    Is it our ego that needs to die to make space for change and transformation, and we tend to confuse it with a physical death sometimes! A painful process to confront either way to reach that point of release and surrender. A very dramatic explaination which offers great insights.

    What is my purpose
    I still do not know
    Still searching
    Struggling to find my value
    Why am I here
    Nothing amounts to anything
    No relationship
    No career
    No dream
    Does it matter that I care about humanity
    People take what they can 
    Lack gratitude and appreciation
    What difference does it make 
    I'm a problem
    A burden
    A nuisance
    A waste of space
    This suffering on earth unbearable
    Relying on God's Grace
    A testiment reserve for the hereafter
    Unable to survive
    Make a connection
    I go home alone
    In vein I ask God to lead me 
    Waiting waiting waiting
    Waiting for a miracle
    This world belongs to man
    Maybe I am not meant to exist
    Empty I give up

    From suicide to success?

    Thanks for your encouragement @Evette Burnell. In the life coaching course Kain talks about feelings, faith and facts and how to cope when life is uncertain to avoid the hole. Honestly I can say I have trust issues and base my self worth on the way other people's treat me. I know I need to work on this. It's just hard, I recently got conned out of money by builders who didn't deliver the service and i am totally gutted. This lost money could have taken me on a fabulous exotic holiday instead. So many people in the past two years have shown a really negative side to humanity. It has pulled me into the hole and I'm trying desperately to keep going. Difficult times to stay positive even though I know intellectually what to do. Definitely a test if nothing else.

    From suicide to success?

    Thanks @Graham Nicholls. It's a tough one. When dark days come around, and bad things happen, it can be difficult to know what the point of life is - no matter how together or spiritual one is.
  14. I realize many people are taking these courses for one of two reasons: 1. self-improvement 2. To practice as a coach Having heard Kains story I am certain there are many people who have times when things have felt hopeless and even contemplated suicide. As informative and helpfull as these courses prove to be I can't help wonder how someone can go from suicide to achieve success purely based on mind power alone. Or is it that simple!
  15. I was asked to give positive advise to a family member today looking to help a son of 18 years who is on marijuana, dropped out of school, lost interest in everything, won't talk or get help?  I posted this in the Lounge and have since found a very enlightening video with comprehensive and compassionate information. Luckily I handled the situation along very similar lines but as my knowledge in this is new to me was not confident of my reply. Now to figure out applying the info that translate into CBT, NLP, life coaching and the other disciplines. I trust I understand the rules and this video will be acceptable and hope this will be interesting for others.
