You Can Change The World

greatness

Here in Romania we have a pretty strange educational system. And, well, the whole system does nothing to tell you that you are special, that you are capable of greatness. I don’t know if this is a bad thing or not, but I’ve always wanted to believe that people have greatness inside of them, that people are capable of being great, of doing wonderful things.

But they’re constantly being told that they’re just average, that they have to play a small part, that changing the world is a task reserved to other individuals.

It’s always others who get to do all the things we want to do, isn’t it? Continue reading

It’s YOU. It’s Always YOU.

“We are all self-made, but only the successful will admit it.” — Earl Nightingale

Do you ever stop to think about what makes us special? What makes us…us?

Then, do you ever wonder what can possibly make some people great?

What is greatness? Or talent? Or success?

F*ck Average

“Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.”– William Feather

If you found yourself in the middle of nowhere and you were starving, would you look for food for a couple hours and then give up? If your life depended on doing something, would you do it? No matter how much it hurt, how badly you wanted to rest, how bitter and disillusioned you were?

Well, your life does depend on what you do each and every single day. The quality of your life depends on what you do on a daily basis. What you do today translates into the way you’ll live life tomorrow. Continue reading

This is What Karma Truly is All About

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

― C.G. Jung

Here’s a fun experiment for you to try: write down every single thing you do during an average day. In half hour increments. But be honest with yourself. Can’t write down: “from 9 AM to 5 PM – work.”

Be brutally honest.

You’re at work, but are you working or just aimlessly wandering the web?

How much time do you spend watching TV? On Social Media? Talking on the phone?

How much time do you spend every day reading? Learning a new skill? Working on your dreams? Developing yourself?

Be honest. Continue reading

Passion vs. Purpose

Find your passion.

Sounds like a smart advice, right?

Do what makes you happy. Love what you do. Develop a magnificent obsession and stick to it no matter what.

But passion is oftentimes violent. It involves strong emotions, it involves a certain degree of blindness.

While passion can keep you going, having a purpose is a better idea.

Why? Continue reading

They say we are born with only two fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises.

How many fears do you have right now? How are these fears preventing you from achieving your goals? Living the life you’ve imagined? Being who you’ve always wanted to be?

I think that we are all born great. Invincible. Our thirst for knowledge insatiable. But I also believe that we encounter setbacks, temporary defeats we misinterpret as permanent and grow weary. We become afraid. Continue reading

Life’s a Gamble

“I’ll tell you what changed my whole life: I finally discovered that it’s all risky. The minute you got born it got risky. If you think trying is risky, wait until they hand you the bill for not trying.”Jim Rohn

I always thought that people are never entirely bad or good, and never inherently so. I always believed that people one only one thing: to be happy. And they set out into this world with this goal in mind, doing their best to acquire that which they require in order to be happy.

Happiness is not a destination. It is, I’m afraid, a series of moments in which we feel we have everything. There’s nothing to add, nothing to remove. And we’d like to stretch each and everyone of those moments for as long as possible. Of course, a moment of happiness never lasts forever. Continue reading
