WHO you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone.
WHAT lies ahead will always be a mystery. Do not be afraid to explore.
WHEN life trips you up, get up and start again.
WHERE you’re faced with choices, make the choice you won’t regret.
WHY things happen will always be uncertain. Take it in your stride, and decide to move forward.
1. Memory is unreliable and only partially accurate.
2. Instead of storing memories like reels of film, we reconstruct them every time they come to mind. Thus details often change over time, and we falsely remember things that never occurred.
3. Later experiences affect old memories. Thus, if our parents are mean during our teenage years, we may remember them as always having been cold and unloving (even although may not actually be true).
4. We fill in any gaps with made up memories. For example, if we can’t remember who was at a team event we remember it was all the usual crowd – even though some of them may not have been there.
5. Language can affect what we remember. For example, this is often used during criminal trials where lawyers present witnesses with leading questions (and thus trick them into misremembering the “facts”).
1. Take time to ponder the questions “What really matters in life; what do I want to have achieved when I look back over my life?”
2. Make time for solitude and silence. Filling every minute makes it hard to listen to our intuition, or that inner guiding voice.
3. Seek out people who inspire you – and then learn from them. There are many people who live inspiring lives. We can learn from their experience, and what they have to share.
4. Consciously monitor your progress. It is easy to slip back into unproductive habits. Hence, we need to be committed to sticking to our plan.
5. Accept that struggles and setbacks will be part of your experience. There will be times when you are tempted to give up and stop trying … but choosing to keep going will lead you to your dreams.
Blue: Makes the people around you feel at ease. Dark blues are great for interviews and lighter blues for parties and social events.
Red: The colour we associate with passion. Research conducted by the University of Rochester found that men were more attracted to, and turned on by, women who wearing ruby red clothing. Again, this is great for parties – but not always at work.
Purple: This brings out our creativity, and is associated with self confidence, independent thinking and class. Purple is appropriate on almost any occasion.
Black: Conveys authority, so that people see you as being powerful, confident and competent. It is the colour of choice of authority figures (like the police), or for stylists, trend setters and icons.
Orange: This luscious, exuberant colour sends the message that the wearer is friendly, sociable, relaxed, and approachable. It’s great for social events – but not for important business meetings.
Green: This is the colour of happiness and contentment. It can be an instant mood changer, putting others around you at their ease. It is great for all occasions, and can be worn in both the daytime and the evening.
