Staying is The New Nothing

We fail all the time, an exam, a task at work, our new business idea, our parent’s expectations. The feeling of failure can be frustrating at some time, get over it, and you will see the learning of failures. Failing is trying, which is a million times better than staying exactly where you are right now. The post Staying is The New Nothing appeared first on Lifehack . from Lifehack http://ift.tt/2zdhWxI

Just How Much Of This Is Too Much?

Coffee. We either love it, or love it. Especially so for this millennial generation where it’s all about the fancy coffees, how much you ‘know’ about your coffee or the latest coffee joint that does cold drip. You are already fancy if you can order a coffee that is not a latte or cappuccino. But just how much coffee should we be having before it becomes a bad thing? The New York Post published an article titled Exactly how much coffee is too much coffee, highlighting the topic of drinking too much coffee without actually realising it. How much you can take depends on your tolerance level As everyone has different tolerance levels, some might be a lot more sensitive to caffeine intake, compared to others. For the average person, it would be advised to keep caffeine consumption below 500 milligrams, which is equivalent to 1 or 2 cups of coffee a day, with a couple more cups of tea on the side.

Want To Raise Good Kids? Here Are 5 movies That Will Help You Out

Deciding what movie to take your kids to can be overwhelming. The sheer amount of blockbuster films, cartoons and animations can make any parent wonder what the most appropriate movie is to watch with their children. The impressionable nature of kids can mean that exposing them to negative teachings could result in picking up bad habits from a young age. Think that’s an exaggeration? It’s been scientifically proven that what children watch, especially with films and TV, has a strong ability to influence and shape their minds. The power of persuasion was discussed in an article by Dr. Jeremy Dean who commented that “stories work so well to persuade us because if they’re well told, we get swept up in them, and we are transported inside them. [1] ” This can work in both a negative and positive way. If parents can be strategic in what movies they select for their kids and then utilise the impressionable window of time after the film has finished to discuss the story line and valuable ch

Why Some Losers Become Winners, but Others Stay as Losers

We all know Milton Hershey as the founder of Hershey’s chocolate which is one of the best known candies in America. But Hershey actually built up 3 candy companies ending in complete failure before his ultimate success. As a young entrepreneur, Hershey set up his own candy shop with $150 in Philadelphia will little success. Over the next few years he started over again in New York and Chicago but failed both times. Not giving up and convinced he could succeed, he set up the Lancaster Caramel Company and within a few short years, he finally had a thriving business which led him to start the Hershey Chocolate Company which we know and love. Despite his failures, Hershey used his resilience and belief to carry on and achieve his dreams. While many would have been tempted to give up, drowning in the negativity that failure can bring, Hershey shows how determination, learning and improving is the real recipe for success. By default, we can’t wait to win As humans, we are wired to get in
