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 a
Do you ever stumble across something you’re not entirely sure of how to do, and then hold it off for a long time– only to return to it and finally figure it out, but kind of realizing that it’s a little too late? Haha, well, that happened to me today. I finally took a few minutes to figure out how to import some old blog posts from pre-pandemic times. I have even older blog posts
I don’t want to sound like a victim, but I can’t explain parts of my life without blaming external sources sometimes. Like when it comes to hearing voices, I have no idea in hell why I started hearing voices in the first place. Where did it come from? Because I certainly had no fucking clue that I could hear voices in the first place. I thought people just had thoughts, and some thoughts could be
I first heard about lightworkers and darkworkers through Steve Pavlina’s blog. He talked about how it’s hard to be in a peak state of motivation without polarizing to one or the other. There was definitely a time when I identified as a lightworker and felt motivated for days or even months to take action to achieve my goals because of that. But after hearing voices and experiencing the negative side of that, I feel as
There were times when I thought I was pretty smart, but nowadays, I feel pretty average. Once in a while, I feel stupid. I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I don’t feel down on myself just because I’m not as smart as other people. I just realize there’s a lot out there that I don’t know. When I think about starting a business, I feel like I only possess a limited amount of knowledge.
Failure is inevitable. We all make mistakes in our life. We all fell down many times before we took our first step. We all babble random sounds until we say our first word. So, failure isn’t something to fear. Also, failure isn’t something we “are”. Failure is just something we experience. And, that is subjective. For example, some people would consider it a failure to receive any mark lower than an A+ in a subject.
“Let us not say, every man is the architect of his own fortune, but let us say, every man is the architect of his own character.” – George Dana Boardman The cool thing about your life is that you get to choose who you want to be. Who you choose to be as a person speaks volumes. Our character allows us to experience things uniquely. It is so important to make sure that your character
The majority of us suffer internally through our minds. It happens naturally because our minds are designed to form conclusions based upon our experiences. When we experience what we perceive to be a negative outcome repeatedly, we tend to form negative beliefs about ourselves or the world around us in order to avoid those seemingly negative events. The problem is that if you continue to build up these negative beliefs, eventually you become stuck in
Often times, we focus on what’s going on externally from us. We perceive certain events to be for us or against us. We forget to take a look inwardly to see if there is something else going us, causing us to experience what we perceive to be negative. Rather than working externally to change events, it is best to focus inwardly. Focus on yourself. Learn how to change and master your reality by focusing on
Self-hatred usually stems from earlier experiences had as a child. If you experience self-hatred, it could mean that you have unresolved feelings or terrible memories from your past. If you allow those thoughts to linger and to continue on, you will form beliefs of self-hatred, and it will affect your everyday living. Where did this idea of self-hatred come from? If you were neglected as a child, you may feel as if you are unworthy
