The Dying of the Light

They say there’s one lesson of importance that life keep trying to teach us: letting go. Accepting whatever happens and moving on. Understanding that it is futile to fight fate, destiny, or the will of the gods.

That, I’m afraid, is a lesson in humility that I never learned. And I think that I learned a different lesson altogether. That of holding on. Of being brave in the face of adversity, of being bold and persistent. Of forging your own destiny. Continue reading

New video: Nothing Ever Happens

We often compare our behind the scenes with other people’s highlights, without realizing that most times nothing happens.

The Inner Game

​”It all comes down to the inner game. Changing your life is a change in the inner game.” – Tony Robbins

There are so many external factors that influence our lives that it’s easy to waste our efforts trying to change them according to our desires.

Mastering others is, indeed, power, but having control over oneself, one’s emotions and feelings, that is true strength. Because it doesn’t matter what happens in your life, you are the one who decides how to react. To paraphrase Viktor Frankl, this is the one freedom that no one can take from you. Continue reading

New video: Artistic Bankruptcy (And how to overcome it)

Also known as writer’s block, being creatively challenged, unintentionally starving yourself to death when other people would like to pay you money for your art but you have no art to sell them… P.S. Did a bit of what you’d call proper vlogging. Or at least tried to.

Don’t forget to like the video(if you enjoy it, of course) and to subscribe to my channel(if you enjoy my stuff). Much appreciated! Thank you!

You’ve got to love yourself

“Your opinion of yourself becomes your reality. If you have all these doubts, then no one will believe in you, and everything will go wrong. If you think the opposite, the opposite will happen. It’s that simple. The higher your self-belief, the more your power to transform reality. Having supreme confidence makes you fearless and persistent, allowing you to overcome obstacles that stop most people in their tracks.” – Robert Greene

Do you know this cliche that the world acts as a mirror? We see what we want to see; what we expect to happen becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and will inevitably happen?

Well, it’s true.

If you don’t love yourself, why should anyone else? If you don’t trust yourself, how can you expect others to trust you? Relying on external validation never lasts.

But you know what lasts? Continue reading

New video: The Secret Ingredient

What if I were to tell you there’s a secret ingredient to having everything you want from life? Something most people don’t think about…

Heaven and Hell

“I think hell is something you carry around with you. Not somewhere you go.”Neil Gaiman

It does not matter what happens to us, but how we interpret and how we react.

It is not necessarily our abilities that determine our success, but rather our beliefs about those abilities. How much faith we have, how much courage. How much we love ourselves.

In this hyperlogical world we live in, this game of chess, it’s easy to forget about the importance of having the right kind of mindset. It feels like a race, to own, to have, to pursue, to be busy, busy, busy, but the truth is that our minds can create happiness whenever we want to. Continue reading
