The other day, I started reading The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss. So far from what I started reading, he goes into the “why” of working less instead of the “how”. And I have to say, I find it quite refreshing. It reminds me of why I wanted to become an entrepreneur vs. working aread more

I’ve been trying to pursue passive income or creating my own business for a few years now. I guess in a sense you can say that I’ve retired from the workforce early because I don’t grind a typical 9-5 job like most people. But what is it like, retiring in your 20s? How do you spend your time when you’re not working all day? For many people, retiring early seems like a dream. You canread more

Sometimes, we perceive feelings to be facts. But, that is not always the case. Feelings arise from our perception of reality. Our minds create thoughts, conclusions that we base on our experiences. We can always change the story as we go. Sometimes, we may think negatively. Other times, we may think positively. And still other times, we may think on a neutral standpoint. You want to be careful about how you think. There are someread more

There are times when we feel angry or irritated. Our anger can be directed at a person, an event, or thing. However, we do not have to sink down into negativity. Anger is an emotion of whenever we feel wronged. Sometimes, we get upset by situations not going our way.

In it are a few books which he wrote himself, but most of them were written for him.” – Harry Emerson Fosdick I believe that there is a dualism of subjective and objective realities. With few books, it means that there are only a few books which we tell about ourselves. But, there is a whole host of stories that are out there about you byread more

Judgment is stupid because it never solves anything. Some people are quick to judge others based on appearance first, and character second. Others choose character over appearance. But either way, you can learn a lot about a person based on how they act, the words they speak, and the way they look. Some people do not take good care of themselves, and instead of looking inwards and reflecting on their actions, they take the blameread more

Complaining is usually a waste of time. The more time people spend arguing with each other, the less time we have focusing on enjoying a good life. My general rule of thumb is to not complain, but to proactively work on finding solutions. Often times, people don’t know what they are doing, and so they tend to just complain over and over again. You have to learn how to think above and to just ignoreread more

There are some universal laws and hermetic principles that work in mysterious ways. Most people are familiar with Law of Attraction, but there is another law called the Law of Reciprocity. The law of reciprocity works like this: Whatever you give away, you will receive back. The reason that this law is so powerful is that the more you give, the more you will receive back.

Music can be therapeutic. There are many genres of music that we choose to listen to: emo, punk, rock, gothic, rock and roll, classical, pop, R&B, foreign, K-pop, J-pop, C-pop, and more. What we choose to listen to can depict and influence our mood. Personally, when I listen to classical music, it feels calm and relaxed. It makes me feel like I am in peace. It helps me to get in a meditative state ofread more
