I truly hope that every person who reads this has felt proud of themselves at some point. Regardless of what made you feel that way, it’s important to feel pride and accomplishment regularly in your life.
When we feel pride over something we’ve done, we also feel that our lives have a sense of purpose. Meandering through life without ever feeling proud of yourself and your accomplishments is a one-way ticket to feelings of worthlessness and detachment.

Are you looking for new challenges and opportunities? Have you found that since you realized you should start looking for new opportunities and challenges, you’ve felt overwhelmed by the number of different avenues you can take to find them, and ultimately felt even more stuck than you did before?
This is not uncommon.
Realizing you need to start looking for new challenges and opportunities is one thing, but conducting your search (identifying opportunities that interest you, researching them, deciding if you can commit your time and potentially money to them, etc.) is a fairly labor-intensive and lengthy...
These days, it’s difficult to perform any internet search without a Wikipedia article appearing on the first page (if not in the first position!) of the search results. Wikipedia has become such a prominent source of information that it feels like you can find a Wikipedia article about just about anything – or anyone!
While this might feel true, it’s actually not.
Getting on Wikipedia or being permitted to have a Wikipedia article about yourself, is not such an easy task. Figuring out how to get on Wikipedia will lead you to find that only people who meet a very...
Did you know that sometimes the people who have the most inspirational life stories don’t even realize their stories are inspirational to others? It’s true! Most people are inclined to think their lives are nothing out of the ordinary, and that others would just find reading their stories to be dull and mundane, but this probably isn’t the case.
Until you take the plunge and write your story online, how will you ever know if people find it inspirational or not? Assuming you haven’t already told many people your story verbally, you likely haven’t ever put it out there for...
When you choose to share your life story with others, you must first go through the process of recalling it. When was the last time you sat down and thought through the course of your entire life?
I bet it’s been a while.
Most of us are too preoccupied with our present situations to spend much time ruminating on our pasts. Or if we do think about our pasts, it’s only about things that continue to bother us, such as regrets or missed opportunities.
Do you ever imagine what a Wikipedia article that’s written about you would say? Of all the pictures of you that have been taken over the years, which would be the single photo selected to depict you as a person for the article?
What would the article sections be titled? “Early life in Omaha,” “Postgrad Research,” “Pregnancy Complications,” and “Second Marriage?”
Or what about “Immigration from Turkey,” “Mother’s Illness,” “Lottery Win,” and “Non-Profit Organization?”
How would your life be divided into chapters? What chapter are you living right now? If someone were to sit down and write a biography about...

4 Easy Ways to Be Discovered
The thought of being forgotten is not a pleasant one. Over the course of your life, you have certainly said things, done things, and witnessed things that are worth remembering. Even if you don’t realize your life is worth remembering, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t become well known and recognized.
Many of us are naturally humble and modest. It makes us uncomfortable to hear others bragging about us, and we can’t help but blush and look away when somebody decides to bring up our accomplishments in front of us.
However, it’s important...
At this point, most everybody has read a Wikipedia article about a person before. You type their name into Google, and if they’re well-known or famous, there’s likely to be a Wikipedia page about them in the first few Google search results.
Reading all these Wikipedia articles about other people has probably led you to wonder, “Can I create my own Wikipedia page for myself?” It’s totally natural for your mind to wander and for you to catch yourself wanting to create a Wikipedia page for a person, especially yourself.
The fact of the matter is that you can...
Not too long ago, books were the best source of credible information. In particular, reference books, like almanacs and encyclopedias, were hailed as the most credible resources for research papers, school projects, and anything else that required tried-and-true factual information.
These days, the internet has changed a lot about the ways in which we obtain information. We no longer rely solely on books as credible sources of information. In fact, even libraries are jam-packed with people using computers to surf the web!
The beauty of the internet is that it’s updated constantly and it’s available to a huge portion of...
