| April 2, 2014 | 0 Comments

bombWith the practical start of the new cold war, the possibilities of an actual hot war are rising. Wars around the world have never stopped but because the territories of the Western countries have been relatively peaceful grounds for the last 60-70 years people there don’t realize that it’s a serious threat.

War is not a joke, especially when we talk about the potential start of World War III with the biggest nuclear powers facing each other.
And yet, the escalation of pro-war talks among ordinary people is just astonishing. Those morons probably don’t realize that war is not a video game. It’s not an entertainment event that you can be part of and it’s not a sports competition.

For Beginners: Caring About People’s Opinion

| April 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

Caring About People's OpinionWe live in a society so we are dependent to a certain extent on what others think about us.

| February 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

self-helpTrying hard to change yourself in a positive manner with no success? You are probably not the only one who has such a problem. To solve it, you should be a bit more insightful. Otherwise you will continue to remain with broken expectations, desperate and hoping to find the piece of advice that will help you remain successful and happy forever (sounds utopian and it not only sounds – it really is). But if you come to terms with some facts you really have the chance to succeed.
