The misuse of spirituality can take a toll on you when it gets in the way of living your life in a natural way. The wrong interpretation of spirituality can only make you dissociated from the ground — reality.

Why are we on earth?

To act, to work, to enjoy, to do, to evolve, to contribute, to experiment, to explore, to give and receive, right? …


You can create great digital content, but you don’t know how to sell it? This article is for you!

The anchoring effect can work for you or against you. Being aware of its use is what makes the difference.

Not everyone is a manipulator, but manipulation does exist. Now we don’t want to draw the work environment as a pure hostile picture where you cannot relax and get your work done.

Being aware of how things work can be an eye-opener that prevents you from being an easy prey to manipulators.

What is the anchoring effect?

The reason why you might fall victim to emotional and mental manipulation can simply be a matter of negotiation for power. Anchoring is a tool for mind control…
