E.I. Jane -Why Putting Yourself First Is Not Selfish

Why Putting Yourself First is not Selfish: When Selfish Becomes Selfless

In my posts you'll hear me talk about the self very often. Myself. Yourself. Himself. Herself. Themselves...selves for everyone! Taken out of context, it would be easy to understand this as selfish and self-centered. But I want to share with you today WHY focusing on yourself and, more specifically, on knowing, loving and being your most authentic self, is the most selfless thing you can ever do for yourself and everyone around you.

What are Emotions and Feelings? Are you using them or are they using you?

You have probably seen me write/talk about the fact that there is not one person 100% like any other person in the world. I mean, think about everything that makes up who we are: Our genes. The combination of all our experiences since birth, or even of past life experiences if that’s what you’re into. The beliefs or set of beliefs we have adopted throughout our lives. Then take into account the interactions with other humans, who have their own beliefs and experiences. Add the environment to this, and you have even more variety if you consider weather, food, culture, ideology, vegetation, etc. etc.

8 Strategies to Feel Better When You’re Having a Bad Day

Have you ever had those days where you just get up on the wrong side of the bed? Where one bad or unpleasant thing happens and then the rest of your day gets messed up? Maybe you got up late and everything else got delayed? You got to work late. You missed a meeting and that meeting was with the president and CEO of the company...great!

What is emotional intelligence and why you need it to build the life you want.

In my videos and articles you’ll hear me talk quite extensively about Emotional Intelligence. After all, it’s what the E.I. in E.I. Jane stands for. But what actually is Emotional Intelligence and where did the term come from? Well, simply put, emotional intelligence is the super power that allows you to live life on YOUR terms.

Your Beliefs, Your Emotions, and Acceptance of Yourself and Others

I sometimes read things out loud to my fiancée to get his feedback when I’m writing content. The other day I was writing the article explaining what emotions were and there I allude to this concept of past lives. Upon hearing these two words, my boyfriend stopped me mid-sentence and suggested, a bit agitated, that I erase that because I would lose half my audience. Now, what I had said in that video was not even that I believed in past lives. I had said that who we were was influenced by our environment, experiences since birth and even past life experiences, "if you are into those sorts of things." Now, my boyfriend is probably the biggest skeptic I know so, of course, he would jump quickly on anything that has not yet been proven by Western science.
