That was wonderful, to say the least. I have been working for a long time to avoid and overcome that 'I don't feel like it stage' It is truly very difficult to get rid of. I have always tried to keep my 'I'm fine' to a longer version in my head. I use to say ' I'm fine ' and think 'at least I will be', knowing that I have a lot of plans that will one day come to life. I have adapted all of this from time to time to get more to happen from it. Now I tend to think and say ' I'm ok. I have plans and though I'm still working on them, I make a point to ACTUALLY work on them here and there at the very least. I still have a lot of 'not in the mood' moments. I do however have more and more ' Just do it, just do something, anything.. moments. I also tend to overdo things when I get a good start on something and get determined to just keep going, to the point where it affects the rest of my life negatively. I really need to work on some sort of balance and make myself keep to it. That seems like a very difficult task. I'm grateful that you and so many others are spending so much time trying to help others in real and positive ways and the most important ways, I think, to help people help themselves.
I want to have my own salon/beauty parlor. To realize this, I need people to work for me who are really passionate in giving services to people coming in. I need a place accessible to people. I need capital to start my business. I am 43 years old and I want this materialize in two years time....In Jesus name, this is my prayer.Amen!
I agree with the sentiment that we should strive for more than fine, and that we are our own worst enemies. However, I find she presents the issue much too simplistic and individualistic. She kind of propagates the "its poor people's fault they're poor" mentality.
That's all well and good but I think if everybody just starts acting on impulse there will be a lot more people in prison. People actually needs to weigh up the pros and cons of their thoughts before acting on them.
yes..you are extremely right...!!
i decide every night about to change my life,loosing weight,study hard,work on personality..
as you said i was not able to woke up eary in the morning.. (someone may think this is simple work,and we have more complex tasks to do, but if you cannt do this, then what else you expect from more hard jobs...?)

all i need is just some activation energy, a force which i had not untill i saw this video....u just ignite my brain as machine...!! all you said is just amazing but now it is my responsibility to make it realastic and get actual result...all that i need is force...
belive me, i totaly agree guys, if you cannt break your routine, you cannt do anything in your life...!! TRUE'

Its incredible. Loved the vedio. Wanted to also know, how to be emotionally independent and live life. Am dependent on my loved ones, when they hurt, am upset. I want to work and achieve my goals, just the emotional quotient disturbs the schedule. Please help.
After listening to that, I definitely want to hold you by the ears & "bury the bone", balls deep, in your face. Specially if you can keep your rant going while I expel my load. But I'm now positive that one time would also be the last time.
She has the demeanor of a reality tv star, her speech is incoherent and all over the place, she could have constructed her advice in so much less time than 21 minutes, but overall, she has good tips under her belt.
Live It Or Make it honestly i feel very sad about your condition..i cannot even imagine how hard it would be to make friends and to be alone at your age..
because i am just 22 and i was just overthinking and needlessly thinking my problems way too complex,

and good luck mam👍 i am toooo young to say you this but good luck to u
5 second rule - when you have an impulse, you must take physical action within 5 seconds, or your mind will hit the emergency brake (stop you from doing it/talk you out of it). So, the next time you have an impulse to do something (something positive of course), count down from 5 to 1 and then do it! Take action.
this is the cure to the procrastination as described by tim urban in his TED talk on it but ironically it's hard to make yourself learn due to the personality rebelling and not making yourself watch this over and over to learn and unlearn a lifetimes of disorganised behaviour hahahahahaha
i knew that my every thing is wrong, it was some last year, but, i was in the state that i'm "fine, my life is still accepted", so i did nothing. it's been like that several year, i'm more and more hopelessly, so i just only think that "i'm fine" but that inside, i know that my future will be from grey to back if i continueing do nothing
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
