Encourage Yourself If You Want to Succeed (Here’s Why?)

You’re tired of not seeing the results you want. You’re putting in a lot of hours, but so far…nil. Your business is not going well. You don’t feel motivated to exercise, and in your personal life, you haven’t met a new person or made a new friend in a while. And now you want do something that’s “comfortable,” something that doesn’t require close attention and consistency. But hold on. That’s not a solution. It’s an escape. And in choosing to escape, you also choose to reinforce the false belief that “you don’t have what it takes to make it.” Let…

90 Days Challenge Review

It’s been a week since I’ve finished my 90,000 words in 90 days. And I’ve had some time off to reflect on this experience. Here are some of my thoughts. 1. Personal Power Many people drastically underestimate what they’re capable of accomplishing. The reality is we can’t even begin to imagine how great we can become. We all have unlimited resources within us waiting to be tapped into. It’s all right there in front of our eyes. Nevertheless, this unlimited power can only be realized if we’re able to face its antagonist. And that antagonist is the inherent weakness of…

Accomplishing Long-Term Goals

I made it! Today is day 90 of my 90,000 words in 90 days challenge. I wrote 1000+ words every single day for 90 days, and today I will cross the finish line. What a journey that was! I will write more about this experience in a separate post in the next few days. I am excited! For now, I see this as a great opportunity to write about long-term goals. To create anything meaningful in life, you have to invest conscious thought in it. You have to transform the intangible into something tangible. And that means, you have to…

Should You Quit Your Job?

Working for somebody else earns you a paycheck at the end of the month. And as long as you have a working contract and the economy isn’t too bad, you’re guaranteed to receive that salary every month. And while some jobs can be professionally rewarding, others can bring you a headache. Yet, most people will stay in those bad jobs. They already have a lot of financial commitments and they need the money to pay their bills. And that’s exactly what I want to address. I want to discuss the idea of if and when you should quit your job…

Live Your Own Life

People hold their own views of how to live a good life. It’s based on their personal beliefs as well as the experiences and trials they’ve had. However, some people believe that their experiences are exemplary. And that’s how it will turn out for everyone else. Accordingly, they might try to influence you to take the same path they’ve taken or suck us into what they believe to be right. They don’t believe that the path you’ve chosen will yield the “best” results. And there is no shortage of such people. They often believe, consciously or unconsciously, that their way…

Natural Ways to Enhance Your Mood

On some days, you just feel crappy. Yup, I am going to say it how it is. You don’t feel like getting out of bed in the morning. You don’t feel like going to the gym and you don’t feel like going to work. You’re grumpy and not in the mood to do anything. Your mood can and will determine whether you will stay true to your word and follow through on your commitments for the day. When people are in a bad mood (or they’re not in a peak state), they will skip the gym and their veggies and…

Lifelong Learning

Human beings have inborn cognitive mechanisms that allow them to acquire and retain new knowledge. But it’s one thing to have these resources, and it’s another to use them capably. I’ve seen so many intelligent people waste their gifts. They have been conditioned to accept things for what they are and live from hand to mouth. They stop investing in their strengths and they slowly fall out of alignment with their true purpose. And it’s so unfortunate to see these talents give up. But people don’t give up overnight. It’s a slow process. And I believe it starts when people…

Firm Up Your Value System

It’s easy to make emotional decisions. The way we feel produces a powerful force in us to do certain things (or not do them). And our emotions, including how we feel about the choices we want to make, can be easily manipulated by ads, movies, friends, relatives, and more. In fact, we are exposed to 5000 ads a day. Yes that’s five thousand, and that number keeps growing. So there is an abundance of emotional stimuli around us and this stimuli can easily influence how we behave. It has the power to sway us into acting against what we believe…

How to Recover From Habit-Relapse

Forming new habits and seeing their positive effects in our lives is a wonderful experience. Habits allow us to do what we should do with little to no effort. We don’t have to yell at ourselves or push hard just to get started. There is no struggle. There is simply unhindered action. But habits require attention. We often relapse into our old ways and let go of the good habits we’ve worked hard to develop. How often have you tried to stick to eating a well-balanced diet and have fallen off the wagon a few weeks or a few months…

Use a Goal Accountability System

Achieving your goals is a matter of working toward them without fail. You have to get up every morning and choose to invest your time and resources in your pursuits. You have to be obsessed. And you have to carefully think about what you need to do every single day to get closer and closer to where you want to be. But quite often, people get off track. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way. And if you don’t have a good personal accountability system, you will stop short of accomplishing your goals. In this post,…
