The book will also have a lyrical twist with Danny drawing inspiration from the classic Dr. As for the music side of things, Danny revealed he’s already started work on his new album and has been in the studio with close collaborators Paul White and SKYWLKR, as well as rap camp kingpin The Alchemist.
You’ve probably heard how YouTube videos have gone viral, turning ordinary people like you into stars overnight. Ideally, you would want to appear on a YouTube channel that’s already well-established, with subscribers waiting for the latest release and pouncing on it the minute it goes live. Nobody understands this situation better than the author who started Agora Publishing, a self-publishing company established with the aim of making book publishing more effective and more profitable for writers than it has ever been before.
We could endlessly say that this or that disappointment shouldn’t have happened to us. To be happy and at peace we must, in time, accept that disappointments can and do happen; they are part of life.
How long we feel bad about a disappointment depends on how we cope, what we think, who we listen to for advice, and more. By acknowledging that disappointments happen in life, we are better equipped to deal with them when they happen; we can feel less shocked, so less disappointed. In time we can feel neutral when we think about a disappointment, instead of bitter and angry.
How we cope with disappointment can determine whether we rise or fall, are bitter or at peace, upset or happy. Best-selling author and international public speaker Andrew Matthews wrote that it’s not so much what happens to us that determines our happiness, but how we feel about it. More realistic view: Sometimes people will let me down, even if they have the best intentions, and they do their best.
Expectation: I am a good person and I always do my best, so I should win at everything I do. More realistic view: At times things might go wrong or fail for both good and not so good people.
Like I’ve mentioned in other blog posts on this website, I have a gratitude list that I read daily.
I use my list to remind myself that not everything is going wrong in my life, and there is much to be thankful for.
Studies have found that people who read a gratitude list regularly are more likely to be happier than people who don’t regularly appreciate the good things in their lives. If all we ever want to be is one thing in life, and we think nothing else will make us happy, if it never happens we can be very disappointed — devastated.
To help deal with disappointments, harness the resources of a good support team, group or wise person you know.
When your get-up-and-go has got up and gone, as the saying goes, get it back using the tips below. Don’t always wait for motivation to strike you before you start a task, because it might not come. Copy the relevant habits of people who are motivated and successful, and have succeeded in your field.
Keep responses to interview questions an appropriate length, and respond appropriately to questions.
Before the interview, know the sorts of questions that the interviewers might ask you, along with appropriate responses. Over the years, I’ve been asked many of the same questions at different job interviews. If you arrive too early for the interview, if you drove in, sit in your car and perhaps read a book, or information about the company that you’re having the interview at. Read books, magazine articles, information on the Internet… about controlling stress and anxiety, if you feel the need. I have shaken hands with many people over the years, and some people certainly need to improve their handshake. My mother and her younger sister in Perth, Australia both have great skin for women their age. My aunt and mother followed the lead of their mother, Illona — a positive role model for good skin.
Put into practice the following 20 natural ways to help prevent wrinkles and, possibly, help turn back the years if wrinkles have set-in.
Antioxidants protect our bodies’ cells – including skin cells – from damage, helping stop wrinkles. Cold-pressed plant oils, such as avocado, coconut, macadamia, apricot kernel and sweet almond, are excellent to help prevent wrinkles. Eating small amounts of high quality plant oils, such as flaxseed oil and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil in salad dressing, is also good for our skin.
My grandma Illona, who I mentioned at the beginning of this blog post, dabbed a little lemon juice on her face daily to have healthy, younger-looking skin. Be gentle when you rub soaps, skin creams and skin scrubs… on your skin to avoid damaging it, so promoting wrinkles. Long hot baths might cause skin to age quicker than bathing for only short amounts of time in cooler water. Carolyn Gregoire, from the Huffington Post, reports that studies have found that stress can contribute to premature aging. Wikihow says the results of a study of identical twins suggest that being optimistic and laid back might prevent wrinkles. Don’t belittle, abuse (physically or verbally), humiliate, patronize, tease or taunt customers. Be the opposite of the character Basil Fawlty in John Cleese’s hit TV series Fawlty Towers. Many managers try to make their staff happy using perks, such as half-day Fridays and free lunches. To enjoy my lunch breaks I like having a laugh and happy chat with friends at work, and watching funny YouTube videos. Often imagine how you would like your work to be – getting a job promotion, getting along better with your colleagues, and so on. Carolyn Gregoire, from The Huffington Post (THP), is one of many writers from various news sources that have reported on the study’s key findings. THP recently spoke to Professor George Vaillant, the Harvard psychiatrist who led the study for many years.
Gregoire lists the following five lessons from the Grant Study that we can apply to live a happier and more meaningful life. Instead of wondering whether our friends, family… are happier than us, work on boosting our own happiness, if we want to. Want to fulfil your maternal or paternal instincts and don’t have children of your own?
Not surprisingly, research into what makes people happy has found that happy people tend to have different habits to unhappy people.
If money bought long-term happiness, then is it fair to say that all the rich people in the world would be happy because they have more than enough money to buy their own happiness? Intangible things, such as love, kindness, forgiveness, inner peace, and good friendships, can lead to happiness, and money can’t buy any of these.
Taking his talents outside of the studio, the Detroit rapper is trying his hand at writing a children’s book that he hopes will improve self-confidence and promote a positive body image in young black girls. If you’re JK Rowling, on the other hand, your book will sell just because your name’s on the cover! Do you have to leave your book mouldering in obscurity on a shelf somewhere and hope that by some miracle, it will get noticed? They like it, they share it, and before you know it, you’ve become an overnight star.
And reading a book is always more intriguing when you understand the writer’s perspective. Talk to Agora Publishing about marketing your book (YouTube interview included) and get your brainchild the publicity it deserves! When expectations are set too high, and they aren’t met, it can lead to disappointment.
We might be able to anticipate that a disappointment might happen, so have ideas for how to handle it, if it does.


No matter how well I drive, or how polite I am to others on the road, there will always be rude and bad drivers. I can get angry and stressed… or I can remember that no one, myself included, is perfect. The current world number ones in every sport were not always number one, and they will not be number one forever. I received my qualification, and after graduation, I soon realised that life went on as usual. Focus on the good things in life that we already have (instead of what we don’t have but want) to reduce the intensity of disappointments, and get over them quicker.
Mix with people who boost your spirits when you’re down, help you achieve worthwhile goals, and congratulate you when you succeed. There are many kind and generous people who are willing to help others in difficult situations. We might look back on hard times and realize that we actually needed those experiences, even though they were upsetting, and now we are kinder and more compassionate… because of them. She was one of the most disciplined and self-motivated people I’ve ever met, and one of the highest achievers in her field. A lack of iron, for example, can make us feel too tired, unmotivated, and present symptoms similar to those of ADHD. Although it can cause energy bursts, which can increase motivation, afterwards energy lows can follow. Most adults need about seven to eight hours sleep every night for good health and high energy levels. In your breaks, do things that boost your energy, such as listening to uplifting music, being around positive people, and exercising. Write down the benefits and look at them daily to remind yourself of the good things that can happen when you finish the jobs. Even if you work at a slower rate than usual, often this can be better than stopping the task altogether. And when your job interview goes well, you’ll feel happier, regardless of whether or not you get the job. Don’t be hyperactive during the interview, but do show energy and enthusiasm for the job that you applied for. Simple yes-no type responses to questions that clearly need some elaboration would be inappropriate. Write these down and memorize key words in your responses, if you need to, so that you feel prepared for the interview. To be on the safe side, unless you’re going for a job as a comedian (or a similar position), I recommend telling no jokes during a job interview. Other options are, for instance, visit shops close by, or go to the bathroom and freshen up, but whatever you do, do your best to arrive on time or slightly early; about 5 minutes early is enough.
Unless it’s absolutely urgent, turn your phone off or onto silent during your interview. Illona practiced the wrinkle-prevention strategies mentioned above, and passed these ideas onto her daughters. Get enough sunlight so your body can make enough vitamin D for good health, but don’t get too much sunlight because it can cause wrinkles and skin cancer. These include raw nuts, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, omega-3 fish oil (read more below) and dark-green leafy vegetables. But how much remain after exposure to light, air… and get absorbed into the skin, is questionable. One of my friends uses small amounts of cold pressed edible plant oils, sold as edible oils, on her face as natural moisturizers. My mother said my grandma’s village in Hungary practiced this technique for centuries. Some ingredients in skin products are likely to be dangerous and can, in time, possibly cause health problems and promote wrinkles. Alternatively, to help absorb skin lotions, gels…, lightly tap them into your skin for a few moments, instead of rubbing them in. Heavy make up, such as thick foundation, can clog pores, dry the skin, and cause more problems than it’s trying to solve. This is especially important with customers who are ill, injured, grieving, very stressed, and so on. In every language, a friendly smile conveys warmth and kindness, and helps put customers at ease. Show that we care about customers by using positive body language, facial expressions, etc. What might be good for one nationality or race… might not be appropriate for another.
A recent Gallop poll of over 150,000 US workers had a similar finding: 70% of Americans either do not like their jobs or are uninspired at work. Regular exercise, spending time with friends, getting enough sleep… are important for health, happiness and good quality of life.
If so, have regular short breaks to get up and stretch, and prevent deep vein thrombosis, back pain, etc. If you do, maybe look for ways to perfect it, like some people try to perfect playing board games, team sports, etc. Throughout their lives, the men have been regularly examined, tested, interviewed and surveyed. When it comes to how happy other people are compared to you, each other individual is likely to fall into one of these three categories: more happy, less happy, or about the same level of happiness as you.
These things include situations and problems that affect them (deaths, disappointments, illnesses…). Comparing ourselves too much to others is a pointless waste of time that reduces happiness. We can also feel happy from things, such as the things we’re given, and we buy or create ourselves.
People can feel happy and fulfilled in many other ways besides having children – by pursuing rewarding careers and pastimes, doing hobbies they enjoy, doing well at sport, joining volunteer programs, and so on. They can, at times, be true or false, depending on the circumstances, the individual and other factors.
These factors are, for example, what the treats are, how often we have them, what they are taken with, the circumstances they are taken in, and the individual. Research has found that spending money on life experiences, such as going on holidays and to the theater, boosts happiness more than buying material possessions. And as if that weren’t enough, big-name authors will get press coverage, radio and TV interviews, and newspaper articles. Readers who would have otherwise given your book the go-by simply because they have no idea who you are will discover just why they want your book and no other as their next big read. For example, you go for a job interview for a job that you would really like to do, but you don’t get the job. So what are some coping strategies and philosophies to help us feel happier after disappointment? Later on I might be able to look back and see that this disappointment all worked out for the best, despite how upsetting it was at the time. It’s unrealistic to expect everyone to like each other and to get along well together. Yes, I was proud of myself, and happier for a brief time that I had this extra qualification.
My list includes things such as friends, eyesight and hearing, and enough food, clothing and water.
Our self-fulfilling prophecy of not being happy unless we get to be that one thing can come true.
They might have gone through similar tough times, so can pass on their first-hand experience.
Over time, increase the size of your goals as you improve and get more motivated, if this helps. Routines provide structure, and get us into good habits that can enhance motivation and productivity. A healthy diet, with enough B vitamins, iron, and other nutrients, is essential for maintaining motivation.


Even just 15 minutes of exercise three times a week is better than nothing, if you’re starting out. But, on the other hand, if your lack of motivation is caused by burnout, for example, you might like having more relaxing breaks. Shortly after starting to exercise, you might find that you get more motivated, and want to continue exercising.
For example, if you wear make-up, it’s best to put on a moderate rather than a large amount.
You’ll find many examples of common interview questions, and good ideas for responses.
For example, if you were going for a job as a phone counsellor, the way you would speak would differ from going for a job as a comedian. Illona recently passed away aged in her mid-90s, but for most of her adult life she had the skin of a typical woman 10 to 20 years younger. Better fluids include filtered water, white tea, organic green tea and organic non-caffeinated herbal teas. Eat plenty of vegetables, fibre, raw and unprocessed foods, and low amounts of junk food, sugar, salt, trans fats, and highly processed foods.
Vitamin C-rich foods include citrus fruits (such as oranges and lemons), cherries and peppers (capsicums). These ingredients include mineral oil (also called, for example, paraffin and petrolatum), parabens, and sodium lauryl (and laureth) sulfate. Skin scrubs remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, so our skin looks brighter.
But a lack of sleep triggers the release of the hormone cortisol, which slows down the growth of cells. And happy customers mean a higher chance of return business, less chance of customer complaints, better customer relationships, and more. Randy Allen is the Associate Dean of Cornell University’s Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, thoughts are creative, so dwell on what you want and how you would like your life to be. The study found that strong relationships are the strongest predictor of life satisfaction.
Irrespective of how blessed or brilliant they were, virtually all of the Harvard Grant Study men endured tough times and tragedies.
How people deal with their problems, and their thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and personal philosophies, greatly affect how happy they are.
But we can also have many other feelings toward people and things – feelings such as sadness, stress and fear. There are many other ways to boost happiness – having fulfilling careers, happy friendships, enjoyable pastimes, hobbies and physical activities, pursuing our passions, and so on. For many people, a small amount of high quality dark chocolate as a treat can increase health and happiness. To help avoid feeling too disappointed, you can think before the interview that “With or without this new job, I can be happy. Gaining structure in our lives, and having regular routines and good work habits, are just three of many ways to boost motivation — that inner drive that makes us feel alive!
If you are new to exercise, or have stopped for a while, check with a relevant health professional about which exercises are best for you, before you start exercising. Small rewards could include, for instance, a cup of your favorite coffee or herbal tea, and watching a DVD. I sometimes feel unmotivated just before I start my exercise sessions, but soon after I start them, I don’t want to stop. Suitable clothes include suits, and collared work shirts, and (for women) appropriate blouses, and skirts that look professional and aren’t too short. Get enough sleep before the interview so that you feel refreshed and alert on the interview day.
So, instead of thinking negative thoughts, often imagine doing well at your interview, and being relaxed and positive. Why not have one or more calming caffeine-free herbal teas before the interview, instead of coffee, tea or energy drinks? If necessary, practice with someone beforehand who can give you good feedback on your handshake. They also moisturize their skin often, drink plenty of water, only spend a short amount of time in the sun (and there’s plenty of sunshine where they live), and drink little alcohol. Fitness expert and best-selling author Michelle Bridges spoke with Professor Taylor about the scientific findings on chronological age and biological age. Smoking causes premature ageing and wrinkles by reducing blood flow to the skin and destroying proteins in the skin.
White tea can stop reactions in the body that break down proteins in the skin, so help prevent wrinkles. Brand names, plus the cost of the models to promote the products, and the adverts on TV… put the price up. Alicia Thorp from the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute is researching the effects of standing and sitting in the workplace. Harvard University Press says this is “the longest longitudinal study of human development ever undertaken.” And some famous men were in the study.
And in regards to career satisfaction, feeling connected to our work is far more important than making money or achieving traditional success. Vaillant’s noteworthy findings that Cole mentions are that the more content people in the study had learned not to get upset over little things. How we feel depends on many factors, including each of us as individuals, who the people are, what the things are, and the circumstances.
Too much chocolate, however, can be counter-productive, causing unwanted weight gain, and feelings of guilt and gluttony… so reduce happiness.
Adam Cresswell, from The Australian Health and Science News, reports that social isolation is as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Wellness centers, laughter workshops, happiness websites, books to boost happiness, and entire professions such as psychology… are a waste of time because searching for happiness is pointless? Even if we buy things that make us happy, whether this happiness is fleeting or longer lasting varies depending on many things – what we spend our money on, our health, personality, attitude toward what we buy, our individual likes and dislikes, and so on. Unless you’ve got an established YouTube channel, and an existing following, your chance of making an impact with your online video are not all that good. But endlessly griping, hurting or being bitter about it isn’t letting go and moving on. Perhaps these customers are very stressed, hurting, or going through tough times, such as the death of loved ones.
Having a satisfying job, a manager you respect and job growth opportunities is more important. Louise is an amazing author who has helped millions of people all over the world with her kindness, brilliance, and love of humanity.
Join job agencies, search Internet job sites, read the employment notices in the newspaper, network with people in your area of expertise, etc.
For many adults, wine in small amounts as a treat may enhance health and happiness, but too much wine as treats can cause problems.
Failure can enable growth, re-organisation and re-thinking to enable us to be wiser, stronger and better.
I checked on the Internet to see if the technique he taught me was appropriate, and credible websites confirmed that it was. She says that Professor Taylor explained that our genes predetermine only about 40% of our physical body.
Read his list of potentially dangerous ingredients in skin care products, if you’re interested. We may never know why some people are rude to us, however having compassion for them can help us stay calm in difficult situations. Thorp recommends sitting for no more than 30 minutes at a time, and standing as much as possible throughout the day.
