Living by Design Blog Carnival No.28

200809211531.jpg Welcome to the latest edition of Living by Design's personal development Blog Carnival, my top pick from 54 submissions is...

Ross Gelding's Look at me: I’m right in front of you! Ross makes an excellent point about genuine interest being at the root of real connection with others - his article is posted at Will it change you: portal for personal growth Excerpt: “How do you go when interacting with people that you don’t really like or aren’t so interested in? Sometimes it’s easy to slip into the natural role of giving off an ‘uninterested vibe’ by giving quiet little mouse answers or just nodding and looking around the room.”

The other articles that I enjoyed reading are listed below. If you like what you read why not leave the good people a comment? Writing can be lonely work sometimes.

David B Bohl presents What Are You Motivated By: Pain or Pleasure? | Slow Down Fast Personal Coaching and Lifestyle Design ~ David B. Bohl posted at Slow Down Fast Today!, saying, “People are motivated by pain than pleasure. In other words, they are more determined to move away from their pain, than they are to move toward pleasure.”

Alvaro Fernandez presents Your Brain At Work, by the Dana Alliance and the Conference Board posted at SharpBrains, saying, “Simple, practical strategies for incorporating brain-friendly practices into day-to-day life.”


Erin Pavlina presents Erin Pavlina’s Blog » Blog Archive » The Path to Purpose posted at Erin Pavlina’s Blog, saying, “People ask me all the time how they can figure out their purpose, their one true path through life. I’m sure there is more than one way to get there, but let me share the method I used to finally find my way. Perhaps it will work for you too.”

Bill Urell presents Improving Spiritual Awareness: 7 Steps To Increase Spiritual Awareness posted at Addiction Recovery Basics, saying, “Are you aware that there are concrete steps you can take to increase your spiriitual awareness? Read on to discover 7 actionable steps.”

Ari Koinuma presents Setbacks: Growth Is Not a Linear Curve posted at Ari Koinuma, saying, “Do you feel like you’re stagnant or moving backward? Setbacks and regressions can be frustrating, unless you understand that growth in real life is often two steps forward, one step back.”

Peter Murphy presents 7 Great Ways To Stay Motivated And Focused Every Single Day posted at Get Motivated Stay Motivated.

Beau of Fox Haven presents Perspective is Everything posted at Fox Haven Journal, saying, “Sometimes we find ourselves dealing with a mental focus that is not helpful to our well being. We may be feeling down, or listening too often to the negative focus of others. But maybe all it takes is shifting our perspective, and remembering to appreciate the simple abundance in our lives. For me perspective is everything… or nothing. It all depends on how you look at it!”

Karina presents Finding Time to Make Intentions Reality posted at Daydreams without Color.

Mike Reeves-McMillan presents Gaining control by integrating your mind posted at Living Skillfully: Your Mind and Health, saying, “The “switchboard” technique for managing emotions, pain etc., and how it works.”
