We control our lives, not our distortions, nor our evil.

Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology mentions how we must confront our shadow, the darkness within the unconscious of all of us. If we can integrate it into our conscious and manage it, we can become better human beings. By darkness, I include not only the evil in us but also our cognitive distortions that erode our peace. By practicing cognitive behavioral therapy daily, we are able to identify our cognitive distortions, face them, and manage them. We control our lives, not our distortions, nor our evil. The almighty shadow can be put in its place when we light it up with our glowing desire for peace. Enjoy the Positive Masters universe here at https://positivemasters.com for mindset...

Welcome to Positive Masters where we develop our mindset and passion projects! Every day we have a finite amount of energy that we can allocate to our deep work and deep studies. For me, after I finish writing my morning journal and action plan, I like to dedicate my first power hour to my highest priority. This is usually work that is very important and takes a lot of thinking, reasoning, and/or creativity. My second, third, fourth, and other priorities are scheduled later. I do my best to schedule my light work in the late afternoon when my energy level is lower. Exercise, especially running outdoors gives me a second boost of energy. Since I get tired during the late afternoon...

12: Positive Masters - Study & Work with Me

Welcome to Positive Masters where we develop our mindset and passion projects. In this video, let's study and work together for a 1-hour Pomodoro (study and work session) with the sound of calm lapping water in the background.   In the intro, I talk about the value of writing a daily action plan. By writing down your plan and executing it, you can predict your future for the day ahead of you.

Therefore, when you ask others to do work, have empathy and understanding on the...
