”Maybe it’s the choices we make? We all start from the same grain but choose different paths? I’ve always thought most of us are only a handful of key decisions from a much different life.” – Ashley Williams
It does seem that most of the time paradise is just around the corner, doesn’t it? That the life we want, the life we dream about on our most lonely of nights, is just out of our reach. Almost attainable.
Life, as we want it, has to be conquered. It’s not a place to be reached, or something that can be granted. Our decisions shape our destinies. Life is what we make it.
But it’s easier that way, isn’t it? To think of the promise of a better life as something that will come to you eventually. To imagine a future that you never have to struggle to reach. It’s just there, inside your head, like a reminder of all that you could be… if only… Continue reading
What if I were to tell you that doing just one thing could boos your productivity tenfold?
If each day, for an entire year, you woke up an hour earlier than needed and invested that time in yourself, what would happen?
If you spent that hour doing whatever you wanted to, as long as it was self-focused and involved activities that are meant to engage your brain.
That’s all it takes to improve your overall physical and mental well-being, to skyrocket your productivity, motivation, to boost your mood.
Each day’s hour can also be different. It should just be working toward becoming a more thoughtful, livelier, and more positive person.
The following are key themes of how you can spend that time to yield the best results. Continue reading
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriett Tubman
My father would always jokingly (or maybe not) ask me how do you call those who have a lot of ideas? I’d say “idealists” and he’d start laughing and say “idiots.”
I have always dreamed big, I have always imagined myself reaching for the stars.
When I was six years old, I’d dream that one day I’d travel to the US, change my name to Chris Packlem, and become the richest man in the world. I’d own all the world’s largest companies, and have an assistant by the name of John. I had absolutely no idea how that was going to happen, and I thought that I’d start by opening a grocery store somewhere in my twenties and then things would take off. But I had no doubt about it.

I don’t know if Grant Cardone came up with this or not, because I have seen this predicated by a number of other speakers and successful people, but the idea is simple: you are capable of being ten times more productive than you currently are.
If that doesn’t strike you as nonsense, nothing will. As a matter of fact, your ego should kick in an say that this is just a stupid statement, especially since it never took into account your own schedule.
But, you see, it doesn’t have to. It never did. Continue reading
I am going to share with you a secret trick to creating a successful business, being happy, having friends, influencing people, and pretty much getting everything you want from life.
This secret trait is… Continue reading
“Never regret thy fall,
O Icarus of the fearless flight
For the greatest tragedy of them all
Is never to feel the burning light.”
― Oscar Wilde
Staying too close to the ground. Being afraid of the fall to such an extent that you never even spread your wings and fly. The lies you tell yourself, the life you have to live because of those lies.
It’s pathetic, is it not? All the excuses, no matter how valid. It’s pathetic to be envious of other people’s success, to be ignorant to the point of trying to find some external factors as to why you can’t do it and they can.
It’s heartbreaking. Continue reading
Human societies are funny. Evolved over the last few thousand years to be as productive as possible, to somehow balance freedom and equality, to offer people as much comfort as possible.
Most of us enjoy a standard of living that would have been reserved to kings a few hundred years ago. Maybe even better. We have access to knowledge, to foods from all over the world, to entertainment, to technology, yet…
Are we happy?
Truly? Continue reading
