    Why Getting Wiser Makes You a Better Leader – and How to Do It

    The primary way that leaders gain influence is through demonstrating good character, and one key element of that is wisdom, something that the human race has valued for thousands of years.

    Self Care Comes First

    We are all busy in some ways, and it is hard to carve out well needed time for ourselves, I know. But to maintain a healthy mind, soul, and body we all have to self pamper sometimes!

    How to Keep Track of Your Own Deadlines, To Do Lists, and Productivity Logs

    How to Keep Track of Your Own Deadlines, To Do Lists, and Productivity Logs

    Keeping track of your own deadlines happens when you make a deadline list as I’m about to do for myself. To Do Lists constitute a brain dump of everything you need to get done while then breaking it down into smaller lists. To do lists only work if you have a schedule on an Excel file that tells you what you are doing with each two-hour block you give yourself, whether it is two hours or fifteen minutes. I give myself two hours. Time management is really easy and doesn’t involve looking at the clock every ten minutes. Time management is about using the greatest resource anybody has to your advantage. This huge resource is time.

    How to Become a Better Version of Yourself Through the Failure

    How to Become a Better Version of Yourself Through the Failure

    Fall on your face! Fail! Fail spectacularly. Because when you fail, you learn. When you fail, you live. This quote is from the movie I like a lot—The Last Word, 2017. It shows the life in real colors and says to every person on another side of the screen: no matter how hard life is at the moment, no matter what's your age—it is not the end until it is the end. You can fail million times, but this is how you grow, how you become a better version of yourself.

    How To Overcome Poverty Consciousness

    How To Overcome Poverty Consciousness

    Many of us are in a state of lack and don't even know it. Belief that you do not have what you need to survive or what you want to reach your goals is poverty consciousness or a state of lack. The law of attraction may be working against you if you are focusing on what you do not have and ignoring what you do have. When you focus your thoughts and energy on "I don't have..." or "I wish I had..." you are actively participating in your own state of lack and keeping yourself in poverty. In order to move forward and accomplish your goals you may need to reprogram your brain, your thought patterns to recognizing an abundant state and attracting more abundance. Here are three simple methods you can implement in your daily life to reprogram your thoughts, reach your goals and find true joy in your daily life.

    Why You Should Spend as Much Time Out of Your House as Possible

    Why You Should Spend as Much Time Out of Your House as Possible

    Your house is your sanctuary, your safe place where you can relax, take off your shoes, and forget about your troubles by drowning them in endless Netflix shows and movies. However it is also your jail, limiting your potential, your social life, your opportunities and your motivation.

    If You Are the Smartest Person in the Room, You Are in the Wrong Room

    If You Are the Smartest Person in the Room, You Are in the Wrong Room

    The wrong room is made up of people you know that are usually lazy and lack ambition. The wrong place also contains dreams that fled, hopes that died, and a movement of silent jealousy in every corner. This is perhaps a scenario you don’t wish to be in.

    We Are All a Beautiful Mess

    We Are All a Beautiful Mess

    I've come to realise that life will never ever be what you expect it to be. On this journey of life you will come back time and again to realise things that you thought were true, weren't true at all.

    Failure Is Always An Option

    Failure Is Always An Option

    From birth there is a looming pressure that everything you do-- every grade you get, every decision you make-- will decide the person you become when you mature to adulthood and whether you will be "successful." Now the first part is certainly true. Everything that happens to you and that you do will shape you into a version of yourself. Good or bad, that version of you is who you are at that particular moment. But the great thing, and the key thing to remember, is that you have the power to change that version of you at any given moment. You just have to have the will and the motivation to do it.

    On the Cusp of Stupidity

    On the Cusp of Stupidity

    There are so many chapters we all go through. We resemble books, pages of exposition and varying levels of climax, all over the course of our lives. Some, unfortunately, have short stories, and some don’t have happy endings. If you’re lucky though, you have moments that make up the highlights—almost like a “best of” section of your life. Sometimes those memories are the pivotal points that might not have been the best but brought you to something that was even better. All life is—is a collection of moments. These bursts of stupidity and courage that make you say, “I can’t believe I did that” and have you continue to say that for the rest of time. Taking chances when you wanted to just take a nap, and falling in and out of love passionately, like a child who finally got the opportunity to pick out their own clothes. There is no rhyme or reason for why things happen in the moment, and only some find the connections later on down the line, and only some embrace the unknown. To choose to fill your life with stories of wonder and risk is showing you realize it is an honor to be alive, and I think a lot of the time we forget that it’s so short. We play it safe, for the fear of making a fool of ourselves to someone or something that probably won’t matter in a matter of weeks. We hold our tongue with telling someone how we feel, just to stave off the possibility of heartbreak, even though the not telling them is probably killing us more. We calculate the risk in almost everything we do, but we don’t calculate the reward. The times we say “fuck it” and throw caution to the wind, and kiss the guy, or kiss the girl, or quit the job, those are the times that we revel in later in life. Not the times we almost quit the job, or almost kissed the girl. Those are the things we categorize as regrets, things that could have been. Things change so rapidly in this life, that by the time we decide to make a choice, it could have already been made for us. We have to start living life, and not just enduring it. It is a beautiful thing to be nervous and scared and hopeful and anxious. It means there is still a heart beating in our chest, pumping blood through our veins, giving us a reason to stand up and make a decision. In a world that is so full of choices, we need to take advantage. The next time you are faced with a fight or flight moment, fucking jump. Pretend that you can fly because you might just surprise yourself. Betting on ourselves is the scariest thing we can do because, it means that whatever the outcome, it’s on us. There is no one to blame, but us. Take pride in your failures, and let them guide you to your next move. Be humbled, and be gracious of the way that you took a shot. Be proud of all of your synapses firing and misfiring because it is what makes you, you. Nothing is worse than wondering what could have happened. Staying home and wishing doesn’t fill your life with stories, it fills them with what ifs. To live a life with no what ifs is to live a life worth telling about to your children, and to your life partner. Living life a little bit reckless is to be brave, and an inspiration to others who would rather “sit this one out.” Be the motivation for someone else, by betting on you. Show them that even when life decides to kick you in the gut, you gather everything inside of you to prove that you’re just getting started. To be on the cusp of doing something potentially stupid with the best of intentions is to do justice to the body that your soul is living in.
