Most of us are scared of diving into the unknown, of uncertainty, of unfamiliarity, of not knowing what’s going to happen. We are scared that things could go wrong, that things will be uncomfortable, and that things might not go as expected.
But taking a leap of faith and throwing yourself into the unknown can be very rewarding. It means that you fully surrender to all expectations that you and...
As today is the day of love, whether you’re single or in a relationship, we should celebrate the love that is the most important of all - and that is the one we have for ourselves.
“The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.”
- Diane Von Furstenberg
No matter how much we care about and love the people in our lives, unless we are whole ourselves, we will keep filling the void through relationships. We may unconsciously place expectations on others what we’d like to have filled in for ourselves. Sometimes this is not healthy as it may become an emotional burden to others and create some destructive behavioral patterns.
If there’s one thing in life I continuously look for and cannot live without, it’s “inspiration”.
Nothing is worse than being demotivated, discouraged, and misunderstood by the one you love. Seeing several couples getting divorced and carrying emotional baggages from that, I believe it’s important to be with someone who has similar attitude and perspective of the world as you. It is not right to...
“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.“
- Henry Ford
We have all heard this quote before. Whether you believe this quote or not, you’re right, and the key secret lies both in the expansions and limitations in our minds - whether we think we can or cannot.
Our beliefs are so powerful that they dictate the direction of our lives and we seem to attract only what we...
What is a rich life? I’m not talking about life abundant in financial wealth, but I’m talking about a life rich with experiences, fun, excitement, adventures, and stories.
Do you have any friends who seem to grab life by the horns? Their stories are interesting and full of passion. You live vicariously through them. You wish you had that life; or the guts; or the passion; or the zest for life like them.
Every once in a while we stop and think about the routines we have fallen into, the lives we have become comfortable with, and the surrounding we are accustomed to. Sometimes we feel a little lost in the direction we are headed. Sometimes we feel a little stuck. Sometimes we feel like we are not being honest with ourselves and are not living the life we actually want to live if money was not an object.
There are so many things we wish we could do but we haven’t come around to doing it. We feel like there is more to life. We feel like we might be wasting our time if we don’t do it, yet, we feel stuck. There are so many reasons that we seem to be telling ourselves why we haven’t come around to doing it. We may feel like we don’t have enough time, but if we don’t make time for it, when will we ever make it happen? We may say that we don’t have enough money, but do we really need so much capital to begin with or can we take a leap of faith in ourselves and let life lead the way? We may feel like the time is not right, but if we keep waiting around, when will it ever be right? We may feel like we’re not ready, but we will never feel ready until we have already done it once.
When these doubts or feelings occur, ask yourself these questions to help you determine what you really want out of life, where you are headed, and what you should do.
"Your comfort zone keeps expanding every time you get out of your comfort zone." - Mo Seetubtim
We all want to be confident. But what we don’t realize that people we know that are confident did not become confident overnight or were born confident. They are confident because they have gone through certain experiences that helped them build up their confidence level little by little.
The Buddha once said, Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. Remember everyone is fighting their own battle, and everyone is trying their best. Learn to forgive other people and set yourself free.
