A new half year beginning…

It’s half of the year already and almost none…yep none, of those new years resolution I wrote down is near to completion. Kinda depressing but I know where the problem is, rarely its an outside entity. The problem is inside of me, the frustration builds up to the point that I am frozen in my tracks. I’m easily persuaded to have the excuse to take quick fixes instead of honoring the struggle. Though on the back of my mind, that small voice is telling me to put the struggle in the right place. Meaning, I should start by making a…

If you have to…fail elegantly

As one of my coach said before… “If you have to fail, fail elegantly…to fail elegantly is to simply accept failure for what it is: an opportunity to eliminate what doesn’t work and try again. For when you eliminate everything that doesn’t work, you’re left with only those things that do.” – Jordan Belfort (The Wolf of Wall Street) It’s simply true, when failure comes, view it as how sales people see it…”A No is one less step closer to a Yes!” See it as things you have to eliminate in order to getting it right. In that way, you…

When Life becomes a BIG Question…

There are times when life becomes a big question… When you can’t help but ask ‘coz there’s just no valid explanation why something happened or what the hell is the reason behind it. During moments like this, we are so vulnerable that, we’re easily influenced by…our positive or negative state. We can easily be corrupted and can go in a path where it’s a downward spiral or ascent through an awakening and uplifting climb. That’s the reason why we should be extra careful… I remember a quote by Robert Schuller when he said, “Tough times never last, but tough people…

YOU Are NOT Broken…

Even if you think you’re broken I’m here to tell you, “you’re not!” Despite how messed up, chaotic, unsure, weird, empty you feel…you were never broken! You just don’t understand it, yet… The problems, the confusion, the chaos, the mess – those are indication that something has to improve in your life. Something has to level up… See, the broken feeling part? It’s a manifestation of something you’re not familiar but familiar with. What do I mean? You’re familiar with it, but you won’t admit it, you can’t because you’re unsure. I get it, it’s not simple, because life ain’t…

Be Do Have…

I got really peeved when I heard this… I mean, we’ve been conditioned to do the opposite – Have Do Be right? In other words, as a trade, we demand and get what we want (Have) first, do want we said we’d (Do) in exchange, and in doing becomes (Be) who we said we’d be. What could be wrong with that picture? In the real world, I know you’ve experienced it, I’m sure you questioned it, in the start we thought it was unfair…but later on we realize it’s how the world works. That life doesn’t owe us anything. We…

Be Comfortable with being Uncomfortable…

It kinda defeats what we normally aim for… Origin of the word Comfortable states that the word “comfortable” comes from the Latin words com and fortis which means “to strengthen, to give support, something producing physical at ease.” A skill can be learned and mastered until it becomes comfortable that it comes automatically. You become unconsciously competent with what you do. A master maybe? In our world today, you will hear people telling you that you shouldn’t be comfortable or else you get left behind. Familiar saying isn’t it? Yep, you heard it once or twice from someone you know. But let’s consider this… Isn’t…

Clearing your mind is healing your mind…

There’s such negative around us now a days… It’s easily accessible to everyone of us, from the news, social media, your inbox, your next door neighbor or your office mate who always has something negative to say about something. Maybe because people are born negative? Come to think about it…its always easy to be negative, it doesn’t take any effort to be one. Now, being positive…its a continuous everyday journey. A continuous monitoring. A conscious effort. Question now, is there a way to make it easier? Make your environment more positive…automatically? Without effort, unconsciously? Of course! It starts by clearing…
