Sometimes we are simply influenced by the social influence circulating us. We tend to behave based on the environment and the environment is made of people and other living beings along with climatic conditions. Social influence and the human mind Influence is uncontrollable as we are a part of this society we belong to we have 50% of its influence. But this also depends on several other factors for example, how easily we are convinced by others, how flexible we are, how much we pay attention to them, how frequently we interact within a certain social environment and so on.

We are always advised to avoid stress, but it is actually a normal part of our lives. Therefore, instead of avoiding stress, it would be useful to learn how to deal with it. It can cause us significant problems, and it triggers our fight or flight reaction. You have to take action unless you want stress to create health problems or worsen the ones you have already.

The Art of Saying "No"

Darryl Bachmeier Mar 19, 2020 Productivity

Saying “no” to any proposal, invitation or offer may be quite hard sometimes, even if you have a really good reason to refuse. Many people are finding themself in a situation when they cannot reject any offer because of the authority, social status, and dominant behaviour of the requestor. Is there any possibility to learn how to give a confident refusal? Sure there is! Mix it With a Compliment or Kindness That is the ultimate weapon of every grandparent and parent. “I love you, but you cannot,” sounds much better and polite than just a dry, “I said no.” When you are combining different kinds of compliments, which are perceived positively, with refusing, which are unpleasant for most people, you get a “somewhere in between” result. Example: This sounds extraordinarily interesting, but unfortunately, I have to refuse. Example: You gave a brilliant idea, but it seems that I cannot handle...

Revenge - Why Is It Such A Bad Idea And How To Resist It

Darryl Bachmeier Mar 19, 2020 Emotions
Angry man holds knife ready to stab. Man seeks revenge for wrongdoing.

It is payback time. Someone has done you a harm, and now you want to inflict harm on him or her. You want retribution. We see it all the time in so many movies and TV shows. A man seeks revenge for what has been done to him, and he gets it. Wouldn’t you love the chance to say such powerful words now you get to have your revenge? Does revenge belong in our real lives? We see it as a way of getting closure after we have been wronged, and it can be quite rewarding in the heat of the moment. Still, does it stay rewarding? What it actually does is prolongs the suffering of the original wrongdoing. It means that, instead of healing your wounds, you are keeping them fresh. It re-opens your wounds and aggravates them.
