4 Types Of Criticism And How To Survive Them
OMTimes By Michelle Alberigi McKenzie
Out of the blue–blamo!–someone criticizes us. It’s unexpected and hurtful, and it’s personal; or at least if feels that way.
What do we do? We want to defend ourselves, or punish the offender. Maybe a well-aimed insult. But if this is a friend, colleague, boss, or family member, we might not want to burn that bridge. Where does that leave us?
How do we navigate the tricky waters of criticism? The next few moments are crucial to our continued relationship with that person.
8 Ways To Be Super Productive

Are you super productive?
Become Super Productive and Aware
The productivity methodology of folks at the top of the chain frequently appears flawless, effortless, and intrinsic. More than likely, it isn’t any of these. It’s carefully-crafted habits put into place and held as ideal.

Tools For Powerful Wealth Creation
OMTimes By Curry Glassell
Wealth Creation and Finding Prosperity
I often say it doesn’t matter who your parents were or how you were raised. The ability to prosper has nothing to do with how much money you have but, rather, what you are willing to create for yourself. So, how about focusing on wealth creation?

Mistakes: Our True Teachers Of Life
By Baba Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
Only Humans Have Potential to Be a Buddha
Mistakes and failures are the true teachers of life. It is only through mistakes that we learn life’s lessons; we grow, we mature, and we realize better ways to do things, better methods of success in life.

OMTimes By Diane Wing
Are There Smart Ways to Gain Trust?
Trust is the key to any healthy relationship. Whether it is a personal or business interaction, trust allows for open communication and mutual respect. It sets the participants up for a win-win and a higher likelihood that pleasant, peaceful, and productive dialogue can take place.
Enjoyment also increases when there is trust. Yet, each of us encounter people who, either immediately or over time, erode trust by their actions, inability to follow-through, or by downright lying.
Taking Responsibility Is Power To Change
OMTimes By Arthur Telling
We Create Our Present Experience by Taking Responsibility
Taking responsibility can be very empowering. The outer world materializes from within us. At break of day, before we rise from bed, we mentally consider the things we will be doing for the day, and sometimes ahead, to the next week or year, or even our lifetime. We consciously guide and steer our ideas.
Unknowing or knowingly, we connect with others, in this mental environment, planning our destinies within the framework of possibilities and limitations of a group mind.
