Manifest yourself

A pal of mine who did the incredible rewrite on my cv and overall sounding board has his coaching facebook page Manefesting Brilliance up too.

He just shared this as well-

A Special Invitation

I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to extend an invitation for you to join the Manifesting Brilliance teleseminar.

Manifesting Brilliance is about living authentically as a co-creator with an innate power to engineer your life experiences. It is one thing to say that we were created in the “image and likeness of God,” but an entirely different thing to truly believe these words, and even more so to claim the power that is our birthright.

Manifesting Brilliance was developed to empower those people who are ready to live extraordinary lives. Manifesting Brilliance is for anyone who is tired of living with the status quo and who is feeling an insistent nagging to live out loud and in full color.

Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Truer words were never spoken. Join me for Manifesting Brilliance to learn how your imagination can be the key to unlocking a future full of hope, promise, and BRILLIANCE.

Facebook and its Effects on Users’ Empathic Social Skills and Life Satisfaction: A Double-Edged Sword Effect

Facebook and its Effects on Users’ Empathic Social Skills and Life Satisfaction: A Double-Edged Sword Effect

Chan Terri H. , MPhil
School of Business, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong.


This study examines how Facebook usage affects individual’s empathic social skills and life satisfaction. Following the self-presentational theory, the study explores a key component of the Internet paradox—whether Facebook suppresses or enhances users’ interpersonal competence (specifically empathic social skills), given their respective personality makeup. Going further, the study assesses these events’ subsequent impacts on users’ psychological well-being. Analogous to a double-edged sword, Facebook activities are hypothesized to suppress the positive effect of a user’s extraversion orientation on empathic social skills but lessen the negative effect of neuroticism on these skills. The study examines a sample of college-aged Facebook users (n=515), who responded to a large-scale online survey. The findings from a structural equation modeling analysis indicate that while empathic social skills are positively associated with life satisfaction, Facebook activities mainly exert suppression effects. Only upon low usage can Facebook activities lessen the negative effect of neuroticism on empathic social skills, suggesting that Facebook may appear as a less threatening platform for social interactions among neurotics. Yet, results in general suggest that undesirable effects may occur at high levels of Facebook usage whereby both extroverted and neurotic users displace real world social ties to online ones. The findings point to the complex ways in which social media usage may impact the livelihood of users.
