While self-discipline helps fight off temptation and understanding your purpose provides clarity and meaning to your actions, what happens when you face adversity, extreme pressure, or stressful situations? 
Staying out of the mud is one thing; getting out of the mud once you are in it is another. To pick ourselves up from the dismay that adversity causes, we must develop resiliency. 
By combining resiliency with self-discipline and purpose, we ca...

While practicing self-discipline can help you overcome challenges and resist temptation, it may not be the best course of action for those periods of self-doubt. 
When you reach a point at which you question your every move, your self-discipline may help you remain afloat, but it will become progressively more challenging to stay the course because you have lost the bigger picture. 
Therefore, it is important to understand your purpose. That way,...

What does it take to be successful? How can you separate yourself from the pack? What are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your goals? 
There are many answers to these questions, but without self-discipline, your journey will be filled with more roadblocks and setbacks than anticipated. 
By practicing self-discipline, we gain a giant advantage when faced with difficult times. Where one person may give up and submit to life’s temptations, you wi...

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of selfishness is the act of seeking or concentrating on one’s advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others.  

Based on this definition, you could assume that being selfish is a negative quality. It is implied that in order to concentrate on one’s personal gain, then one must take something away from another individual.  What if you do something for yourself that does not affect other p...

Take a second to think the last time you used the phrase “I have to…” or “I need to…”.  
Chances are you do this subconsciously without being aware of what you are saying, but I want you to look back at that statement and think about what it is that you had to do, or that you needed to do, and ask yourself: “Did I really need/have to do that?” 
The problem with using the terms “need to” and “have to” is that it applies unnecessary pressure to the...

Picture yourself lying on a beach in the tropics: the clear blue skies, the warm sand between your toes, the cool, soothing fresh air; the sound of the waves rising and falling along the beach front. Sounds relaxing, doesn’t it?  

Now, maintaining the same setting, imagine your phone ringing nonstop, responding to emails on your computer, or even scrolling through social media with no apparent purpose. Doesn’t sound as relaxing, does it? Whether y...

Joey Velez, M.A., M.B.A.
When things are going your way, or when you are presented with successful outcomes, it’s not difficult to gain confidence from those situations. When in successful or familiar situations, you don’t have to think about being confident because you just are. 

But how do you gain confidence when things are not going your way? Or when you are presented with unsuccessful outcomes? Or you are placed in unfamiliar situations? What...

The great Nelson Mandela once said, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he-who-does-not-feel-afraid, but he-who-conquers-that-fear.”
With the word fear, people think of spiders, or arachnophobia, but also the negative connotations that come with the word. What we fail to realize is that fear is a natural human emotion that all individuals experience. Although it may be unpleasant, fear...

Communication was an area I struggled with up until the beginning of my graduate program back in 2014. Difficult conversations were exactly that: difficult. I avoided them at all costs. I would shut down, close myself off emotionally, hold grudges against people who disagreed with me, and I would typically be left feeling alone, depressed, and frustrated.
