The Road to Success…


You know the saying that “the road to success is always under construction?” It’s a constant process, a constant battle.

Failure is not the opposite of success. It’s a stepping stone. An important element of it. Each and every single time you fail, you’re actually getting closer to success.

Hard work pays off.

There’s no way to argue about it. Continue reading

To Whom It May Concern…

letterI’m twenty eight years old, and in that short time frame I’ve learned that life is rarely fair. But it goes on. Whether we like it or not, life goes on.

Maybe we live in a dangerous world. Maybe this world has always been “unsafe” for those who weren’t sure what to do.

And I’d like to tell you there’s nothing to be afraid of, I’d like to tell you that failures build a man, that every fall is also a step forward. That what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger…

But the truth is that, most times, what doesn’t kill you makes you wish it did. Continue reading

“Do What You Love” IS NOT a Cliche. It’s a LIE.

Do what you love. Love what you do.

Odds are you tried something in your life. A passion. A hobby. Something that got you excited, made you feel alive, like a fire burning inside your chest. It felt amazing doing it. And you did it, and did it, and kept at it, but in time it became more and more difficult to stay with it long enough to achieve true success.

Let’s face it: if you’re not in love anymore with what you’re doing, it feels like an uphill struggle. That’s OK if you’re a hobbyist or a dabbler, but if you want a career, if you want to live your life at the highest level possible, then all this might make you want to stop and try something else…

You want to quit because you weren’t expecting that doing what you loved would be so damn frustrating at times. So infuriating. So full of monotony, and moments of despair.

So damn boring…

Wasn’t this supposed to be about love? About passion?

Well… Continue reading

What we think about…

“A man is what he thinks about all day long.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Change your thoughts and you can change your world. A terrible cliche, isn’t?

And yet almost every self-made man will tell you just how important thoughts are. Alongside a lot of self-proclaimed gurus. Continue reading

Are you alive?

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”Howard Thurman

Ask yourself this simple question: what makes that little muscle inside your chest beat? I mean, really, really beat. Insanely strong, in such a way that you can feel it furiously pumping blood inside your body. What’s your passion? What do you live for? What are you willing to die for? Continue reading

Is this the secret to success?

It’s a mountain of a dream and a mile-high climb to the top. And what it took me a long time to discover is that I didn’t like to climb much. I just liked to imagine the summit. – The Subtle Art of not Giving A Fuck

We would all like to be something we’re not. We all wake up on certain days, terrified that we are less than what we all dreamed of becoming when we were kids.

That is okay.

The thing is, we all like to imagine having certain results.

We fantasize about being famous or rich or married to someone hot as hell…

We all like fairytales…

The thing is, that’s superficial.

And my definition of superficial is this: you want something without knowing the full range of pros and cons, without being aware of the circumstances and the consequences.

It’s like this: you’d like to be rich, so you win the lottery.

Now you’ve got to worry about what to do with all that money. What to buy, what to invest in, what to do to not lose it all.

You lose a lot of friends, or you might try to keep them by helping them with some money…

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?
