Caroline Casey has had an incredible journey herself to discover what is real freedom and what is the power of vision and belief. She reveals her own story which can make anyone of us reconsider what we accept as limitations for our own lives. This is an absolutely inspiring talk.
People usually think that anger is the emotion over which they have very little control or none at all. People who are angry rather often may say that anger is part of their character and they can not do anything about it. Some people will say that anger can also be positive emotion if one uses it for good purpose. It might be true. But here we speak about more usual type of anger that brings destruction and trouble.
Roman philosopher Seneca had a serious reason to research this emotion. (You will find out his reason when you watch the video below.) He came up with the explanation about the origins of human anger. Luckily for us, he also gave valuable insights about how to avoid getting angry or at least lessen the chances to get angry or disappointed.
He also described one serious danger for our chance to be happy – advertising. He did it more than two thousand years ago… Continue reading
Did you know that one smile can give you the same level of brain stimulation as eating couple of thousands of chocolate bars?

There are so many ways how to look at the Fear. There is a great description of the Deepest Fear in this quote from the book “A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson (the spacing between lines and accented font is added by me). Isn´t it a wonderful perspective of how one can see fear?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Continue reading
It´s Friday – it means there is more time to see something inspiring and thought provoking! We believe this video is exactly that.
It is a documentary movie about the selection and training process of performers for the World´s Greatest Mastery Circus: Cirque Du Soleil. This documentary follows their quest for scouting and developing the best talents from around the globe. Continue reading
This inspiring video that shows how Maia Helles, 95 year young lady, does her daily exercise routine, was the reason why I managed to do my morning workout today.
When I was watching the film, it was not the exercise program that captivated my attention. It was the energy, flexibility and attitude of Ms. Helles. Watching her got me thinking: “I want to be able to move like that”. If she can do it at the age of 95, how do I dare not to take care of myself right now? Continue reading

It made so much sense when we thought about the real events from our lives, when we witnessed how some idea took off and turned into wide spread action. Continue reading
James Cameron is not only the director of movies Avatar and Titanic, but also the person with always present curiosity and imagination without boundaries.
In this talk he speaks about the important principles of success – curiosity, imagination and respect. My favorite part of his speech is about the attitude to failure and fear.
Charlie Todd plays by creating unexpected and joyful public scenes to bring people together. There are many people who join his plays. It gives an opportunity to smile for even more people who happen to be at those sites where the plays take place. Continue reading
We tend to be superstitious, believe in myths and urban legends. Maybe there is some truth about them. But what if our skill to perceive reality is influenced by the need to survive?

Micheal Shermer uses video and music to show us how we overlook facts and convince ourselves to believe in myths, urban miracles and mystery. His examples are convincing. Continue reading
Many so-called mysteries are presented so skillfully that they look true. It is an art and a science to create a mystery: choose the subject, find all kinds of connections and coincidences, join them in a favorable way, make a story out of it and present it in a believable way. Continue reading
