It’s a large world out there, and nothing is more beautiful than the overwhelming nature of our earth and its sky. Have a look at these beautiful photos of our breathtaking home planet. Maybe problems aren’t so big after all.

                                              It’s easy to feel small and alone in such a big, scary world, but it just means that you have more space to grow.

                                                Privilege without responsibility always equals corruption. As always, nothing worthwhile is ever easy.

                                                  Things can sometimes move a little too fast, and it can be suffocating. Nothing beats the feeling of breaking free. It just takes a bit of courage.

                                                    The secret to youth and prosperity is the unrelenting desire to learn. Whenever you’re feeling down, go find out something you’ve never known before. It might help to remind you how little of this world you’ve experienced.

                                                      Sadness is temporary, as is every emotion. So don’t worry, the sun will come out again eventually.

                                                              Mahatma Gandhi once said:

                                                              “The world is big enough to satisfy everyone’s needs, but will always be too small to satisfy everyone’s greed.”

                                                              So remember, it’s a large world for reasons that matter.

                                                              11 Things Overachievers Do Differently

                                                              11 Things Overachievers Do Differently

                                                              We all know some overachievers: supermoms who manage to get online degrees between cleaning, cooking, and taking kids to practice; students who write 10-page papers when the directions call for 4; managers whose resumes look more like pages from the Guinness book of Records.

                                                              How do they do it all? How is it possible that one person can graduate at the top of their class, found an orphanage in India, run 30k marathons, write a best-selling book, travel all over the world and learn to speak Mandarin Chinese while having a full-time job?

                                                              What’s the secret of an overachiever? Here’re 11 things overachievers do differently that you can learn from.

                                                              1. They Know How to Manage Their Time

                                                              It’s pretty simple actually – you can never become an overachiever if you don’t know how to organize your time efficiently.

                                                              The great thing is that overachievers are ready to share their knowledge and time management talent with the rest of the world. Read The 4-Hour Workweek or The 4-Hour Body by Timothy Ferriss, and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

                                                              2. They Don’t Spend Hours Watching TV or Playing Computer Games

                                                              Mostly because they have better things to do, like exercising, reading, spending an evening with their family or volunteering to work in the local soup kitchen. Their philosophy is simple – the world is full of wonderful things to try, explore and experience. Watching TV is not one of them.

                                                              3. They Are Obsessed With Perfection

                                                              Imagine Steve Jobs’ work approach and you’ll understand the level of perfection and painfully high standards that overachievers set for themselves and those around them. Often it pays off (especially if they focus on just one domain). But sometimes compulsive over-striving turns into a sure-fire road to disappointments and unfinished tasks.

                                                              4. They Know How To Inspire

                                                              Overachievers learn quickly that it is much easier to achieve goals through collaboration (and especially delegation). So they know how to inspire, encourage, persuade and motivate people around them. Even though they often drive their team crazy with their stubbornness and perfectionism, people quickly follow under the spell of their enthusiasm and greater vision.

                                                              5. They Set Clear Goals

                                                              The term “overachiever” itself implies that they know how to achieve goals. That is kind of hard to do if your goals are vague, unclear and lack specific deadline, which is why overachievers educate themselves, read goal-setting books, and think about the best way to approach a new task.

                                                              Although, it’s worth mentioning that overachievers usually use their time management and goal-setting skills towards competitive, “I want to kick butt” type of goals rather than self-improvement, mastery goals.

                                                              6. They Are Organized

                                                              It’s hard to imagine a disorganized overachiever, isn’t it? Their great organizational and planning skills usually serve three main purposes: keeping track of time, keeping track of progress and keeping track of achievements.

                                                              This hasn’t been confirmed by scientific research yet, but overachievers might actually get a “runner’s high” from crossing tasks off their to-do lists, and making new to-do lists.

                                                              Some psychologists believe that overachievers place their self-worth on their competence, driven by an underlying fear of failure. Rather than setting and striving for goals based on a pure desire to achieve, their core motivation becomes avoiding failure. This may explain the fact that overachiever beat themselves up for even little setbacks and seemingly-insignificant mistakes.

                                                              Who doesn’t love them, right? True enough, but unlike most people who like to feel acknowledged and appreciated for their efforts, overachievers are bent on collecting ‘awards’, be it university degrees, spelling bee prizes or unusual destinations.

                                                              While loving awares isn’t bad, it’s even better if you’re driven by internal motivation instead of external ones which could be quite uncontrolable or unstable: Why Is Internal Motivation So Powerful (And How to Find It).

                                                              Don’t get surprised if you receive a work-related email anywhere between 8 p.m. and midnight. It’s something overachievers usually do and you weren’t the only one. At least 20 more emails have been sent during these hours to other people. The concepts of over-achieving and working overtime usually go hand in hand.

                                                              The downside of this is an imbalnced life, which may need to problems in other aspects of life including health and relationships. A better way is to Achieve a Realistic Work Life Balance.

                                                              Overachievers might often be labeled as “workaholics”, because they often ignore bodily signs of hunger, fatigue and even a full bladder, hoping to finish just one last little part. This doesn’t mean that overachievers don’t know how to disconnect and relax.

                                                              True that they tend to work in the highest gear, but they also have enough sense to give themselves time to rest and recharge. Of course, they do it in their own overachieving way, preferring climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or hiking through the Amazon jungle to lazing on the beach.

                                                              A great quality that most overachievers have is the hunger for knowledge. They surround themselves with bright people. They know how to listen, and most importantly, they get tons of mentoring.

                                                              Despite the fact that overachievers want to excel at everything they set their minds on, they are humble enough to admit that to get on top of their game, they need help. And they are willing to pay someone to push, coach and guide them.

                                                              You too can learn How to Create a Habit of Continuous Learning for a Better You.
