Scottie Pippen once went off into a horrible rage of anger after the referee, Joey Crawford, missed a call and then called Scottie for a call. Scottie upset must have uttered something despicable and caught a technical.
At this point, Scottie was still upset inside, but the storm was raging and only needed one word to send it flaming. He got it and he went on a tirade, as you can see in the video. If we do not control the pain-within and stay present, he or she (the ego and pain-within) can unleash itself at any moment.
This will be manifested through the physical body.
As it did with Scottie Pippen in this instance, pushing him into a rage that caught him throwing a chair onto the court in the direction of referee, Joey Crawford. The chair could have hit someone unintended, who also possibly holds pain-within.
Stop Throwing Stuff in Rages of Anger
This is why it is important, even vital, to release yourself from anger and all other egomania that control and lies dormant until triggered. Once triggered, if you are unable to get back present, in the moment; somebody is going to get hit on the head with a chair.
Don’t get caught throwing stuff in rages of anger.
Aaron Marino talks about how he realized that scrolling through his newsfeed on Facebook made him feel like a loser. He felt like a ‘weird’ after seeing all of these amazing experiences and amazing relationships other people were having.
He felt like he was ‘missing something’ and that his life was ‘deficient’. He felt like people were jamming how amazing they are and how amazingly incredible their lives are. He started feeling bummed out.
His theory is that Facebook is causing people to feel badly about themselves and making them feel depressed, both the people posting stuff, and the people watching what these people post. Aaron called his friend (Mike) who is a licensed therapist about how destructive social media can be. Mike said that social media is indeed destructive, causing people to feel worse about themselves as they view other people living a fake “Facebook” lifestyle.
Aaron, like you, should feel vindicated and put it all in perspective.
Aaron acknowledges that what you see on social media (Facebook) is not reality! Like online dating, you can craft a persona and mislead people.
The fact is that is everyone has problems, issues, and insecurities. Social media is a place to post amazing things, and for someone looking in through this key-hole, they can start feeling unfulfilled.
You should make sure that if you are spending too much time on social media platform and you are feeling like you need to compete, it’s okay to live a life that is normal. You need to live a life off of the computer. Realize that living is not done on or in front the computer. Make your own amazing memories and life even if you’re not posting it! Put it in perspective!

Welcome to day 8 of the turn your life around in 30 days challenge. Today we are going to do something that will help lighten the load of our mental landscape and make moving forward much easier and better.
We are going to mend all broken or idle and scared relationships and begin the process of healing those relationships. In other words… we are going to forgive and allow ourselves to be forgiven. This is not the easiest task in the world. Some of us have people we have wronged, and we have people who have wronged us.
We have people who have “hurt us to the core” and it may be difficult to really forgive them. This actually will hold us back from enjoying more of the success that lies ahead of us. We must full heartedly forgive all people, no matter the wrong they have done to us.
This does not mean you and that person are all of the sudden best of friends… instead it simply means you have let go of the pain they caused you… you have let go of the resentment you had for them… you have forgiven yourself and them.
Perhaps you have a relationship that is sitting idle – you can go engage in it to be sure they don’t have the idea you have abandoned them. The apologies and forgiveness is to go towards all people…
It does not matter… offer them the same apology you would anyone close to you and allow yourself to be forgiven. As long as you make the effort, it will be accepted. The key is to be sincere, and the only way to be sincere is to really come into the general understanding that no one would hurt you consciously know they were doing that. The reason is because in life… what you put out is what you get back. Therefore, no one would with clear understanding hurt you understanding that they are ultimately hurting themselves also.
So forgive and be forgiven and clean out that room of hate, vengeance, and evil in your heart and leave that room completely empty so it is not a burden to move forward.
A good tip to practice this is to do a fake Oprah show… go onto a show where you confront the person that hurt you and describe to them (imaginary them) how they hurt you and let them know you forgive them. This will help you do it with less emotion when you or if you ever get in front of them to do this.
Homework assignment: spiritually forgive… that is do it in your mind. NEXT do it physically by reaching out to those who hurt you and also reaching out to those you hurt and ask to be forgiven.
Tomorrow we’re going to dig a little deeper… in one of the greatest subjects of our physical lives!

Are you stuck in the same old mundane routine of life? Is life sending you a lot of the same old downward spiral luck you seem not able to get out of? Things like this happen to everyone. It’s just a matter of knowing how to break out of it that will make the difference between success or boring failure. In this short article I will show you a surefire way of getting out of the boring, mundane, downward spiraling life that may have come up on you.
Getting Out of a Boring Conventional Period is Possible…Here’s How
The way to get out of the mundane and the negatively spiraling life is too treated life like a game. Like in basketball when a team goes on a massive run the other team has to do something about it.
What typically happens when one team (we will call that Team-Life) makes a massive run on the other team (we will call the Team-You), Team-Life makes every shot, gets a whole bunch of steals and completely disorientate the other team, Team-You. You seem like you’ve never played the game ever in your life because of how discombobulated you have become.
It really does not matter what you try to do or what you try to change. As the crowd screams louder and louder (they are distractions in life) you get more and more distracted from playing the game. What needs to happen at this time is for twenty-second timeout. If the short timeout does not help then a full timeout needs to be taken. During this timeout Team-You needs to tighten the focus, reorganize, and reconnect with the original purposes.
You may need to change plays, change offenses, learned to change the defense, double-team the offending player that is doing the most damage in your life. Most of the time in the real game of life, we do not have coaches or people who can evaluate what’s going on in our lives.
If you do not have a life coach or mentor or social counselor that can professionally analyze your life at that moment and you may want to seek one.
Getting Out of a Boring Conventional Period
This is something that people tend to think they are odd for or weird if they go see a counselor. Most great athletes, actually all great athletes, have or had a coach. So do most great men and women, they have counselors or advisors. If you cannot afford a coach or an adviser then go seek a friend who has wisdom and good life insight. The last resort should really be the first resort and that is to seek God. Up on seeking God you can get more insight on what is going on in your life by asking questions.
It’s Fulfilling Getting Out of a Boring Conventional Period
Seeking God, meditating and praying to God will clear your mind and give you insight or ideas of things you can do to get out of the mundane and figure out where the problem lies. You want to have this conversation with God just like you would with any other friend. It should be a conversation. And what will happen if you do this the right way, you will see the answers either come into your mind, or the right people will be sent to you who can help you with the answers that you need.
This is how you can get out of any situation or mundane routine in your life. It’s your life. Do not fail to take action if you do not take action all of this is for naught.

Stress is the body’s natural reaction to pressure. That means that since there will always be pressure as one goes about living in a contemporary setting; one is bound to get exposed to stress one way or another.
The way to go about handling stress at work differs from job to job and industry to industry. However some things are constant. The same applies in the workplace. The pressures one encounters when on the job one way or another begets workplace stress. Stress at work is not entirely avoidable but it calls for attention when coping becomes a problem.
When stress surpasses threshold levels, it leads to “bad stress” otherwise known in psychology circles as distress. The bottom-line then of handling stress at work is to prevent it from becoming a distress, thereby negatively affecting our productivity, and putting the welfare of the organization in peril. In extreme cases it even goes beyond and affects other of our lives and into our family lives.
For this, I’ve developed a five step guide to handling stress at work. The first thing is identifying the causes of the stress. Causes of stress are called stressors. For one to be able to employ measures to cope with stress in the workplace, one has to be able to identify their stressors.
One of common stressors is the demands of too much work to complete in very little time especially in work involving deadlines. Other stressors could be lack of appreciation for work done including enough remuneration, competition for position among employees, improper communication between bosses and employees and poor work environments. By identifying stressors one can be able to formulate a way if not to eradicate the completely, to keep stress at manageable levels.
Second, formulating stressor management techniques is important. It would be easier to attack the problem at the source rather than deal with the stress itself. This is applying bottoms up approach to the problem. One learns how to avoid or cope with the stressors better, thereby curtailing the possibility of the stress itself.
Such measures could include reporting to work earlier in order to manage work volume, management of time, maintaining a positive attitude to other workers and bosses and learning to fit in a disadvantaged working environment rather than keep complaining about it.
Research has shown that exercising regularly also helps to boost ones morale. There exists no rule of the thumb on the best way to manage stress. Often, formulating your own method is encouraged since you are best able to do what they are comfortable with.
Next is evaluating ones progress in stressor management. After formulating your technique of handling stress at work and executing it, you need to evaluate yourself to identify progress made. One thing you need to remember is that progress may be slow, or not exist at all. That means one or all items in your technique needs improvement and measurement can prove as an indication to go back to the drawing board to redraft the method.
The Way To Go About Handling Stress At Work
The fourth guide pertains to refining/redrafting your stressor management technique. This involves coming up with more ideas to enable one to handle works stress better. This is still important even when your technique is working for you as it enables you to refine it even more hence improve its efficacy. Generally the success to handle stress at work will always entail doing cycles of this steps until the desired is reached.
Of course for one to succeed in handling workplace stress, they have to make a decision to want to do so. Such a personal approach will enable one to build up the positive attitude and the morale necessary to tackle the task at hand. Remember one thing being able to handle stress is not only important in the workplace but in all aspects of one’s life. So start with the decision today. Work towards a stress free life.
