Does this way of thinking really work? Yes, it does. If you act “as if” you already are who you want to be, that is a good way to become that person. But that is not the magic solution: it is only the beginning.
Fake it until you make it is a self-help mantra. It is a part of almost every talk about self-suggestion, influencing your subconsciousness, affirmations, visualizations, etc. If you convince yourself (your subconsciousness, rather) that you are already something you want to become, you will become that. It is only a matter of time.
The way we…
Why do you exercise?
As you can already guess, this piece is not about well-known physical benefits of exercising. This is about the mental (spiritual) aspect of training.
I realized a long time ago that physical exercise is the best proof of the proverb mind over…
This article is not about how to be successful. It is about your perspective on success and how it makes all the difference in the world.
Let us start from a situation where you have a goal. Here is my case: I am in good shape and I want to do the proper muscle. I can do 15 pull ups in a row, 150 in total. I am really close, but I still cannot muscle up. Am I successful or not? One could argue: you haven’t reached your goal (yet), so you are not successful. Others could point out that…
Long time ago, I did not know what a “comfort zone” is. Then it became a really popular thing. Everyone was saying that making progress means getting out of your comfort zone. Well, what the hell is this place and how can we get out of it?
“The concept of comfort zone refers to a psychological state in which we feel safe and do not experience anxiety or fear. It is a “space” that we know completely and in which we control almost everything.” (▷ What is the Comfort Zone — and what’s not?)
Comfort zone is a place where…
We are bombarded by stories about how successful people get up early and that is why we should do it too if we want to be successful. So, will get up early make you a millionaire? Here’s a shocker: No!!!
It can be a first step to reaching your dream life or just another experiment you tried and quit after a few weeks because you got bored. As usual, it depends on your mindset.
Here are some facts about getting up early:
We live in the age of gurus. Since the ’70s, we had all kinds of gurus offering us wisdom, knowledge,and guidance in all areas of life. Many of them turned out to be manipulators, psychopaths, con man, or just ignorant quacks. Some of them were real teachers. Yet, their reputation is far from spotless.
But guess what? We need them, after all.
The word Guru is an old Sanskrit word for a teacher, leader, or expert. However, in our recent past it has gained a bit of a different meaning:
“a: a teacher and especially intellectual guide in matters of…
If there was a topic I did not want to talk or write about, it’s Covid-19. This is the most popular topic in the news and probably on Medium, too. So, why not write about it?
It is not because I have nothing to say about it, but because I have too much to say.
I don’t have a problem with this virus itself. I mean, obviously I do, but there is a bigger elephant in the room.
The problem is the narrative that the governments, scientists, doctors, and big pharma are serving us.
Let me be clear, I do…
I was a bit hesitant when I first heard about the idea of writing about ourselves. It is not that I hate writing about myself because everyone likes talking about themselves. It is just that I assumed that a short introduction that is in our profile would suffice.
Then when you put some thought into it, you realize that every writer should have an About Me section. You can look at it as a business card or type of Resume.
Today almost everything is about politics, interests, marketing, and sales. Is there still a place in today’s world of corruption and greed for truth? Hell yeah!
I firmly believe that telling (and hearing) the truth is better in the long run. Despite the risks of people getting angry at you or causing unpleasant situations, in most cases, honesty is the best policy.
There are many famous quotes about the truth. The first one that comes to mind is:
“The truth will set you free” (John 8:31–32)
I deeply believe in this one. It is one of the eternal truths about…
Relative and individual
Yes, this sounds like clickbait BS, but it is not. Indeed, things are relative in life.
No code or a rule that we follow in life is true for everyone and will not work for all. Others can have the same values in life as you and yet the rules that they follow may not be the right answer for them. So, how can that help us?
