Let’s be honest here, we all have the mask of insecurity. People are usually unaware that they wear this mask. They thought that this mask is their true identity but it's not. We can see this on social media, a lot of people are posting great picture of themselves pretending that they are happy but deep inside they know that they are using this platform to mask their real-life problems. Most of them are sad, depressed, anxious and insecure but they don’t know why. Social medi
Life is like a book. Every year we celebrate birthdays which marks as a new chapter of our life. Life changing decisions are also considered as a new chapter. We often forget that we have limited time. We distract ourselves with delusions and pleasure to make us happy. Unfortunately this method backfires and puts a hole in our life. When this happens, we keep searching for answers. We are looking for ways to cover this hole but we forget that the only way to fix this is to em
We love the idea of a life with no stress but is it possible? Can it be accomplished? Or is it just another idea given to us by our noisy and destructive society? The truth is it is impossible to achieve such feat. The rich got money problems. Having more money doesn’t mean happiness. In fact, wealthier people are more prone to depression and stress because of what they have. Look at how families are dismantled because of money problems. If money is the key to a stress-free a
There’s a toxic force on the planet that keeps us from doing what we love. It prevents us from changing our lives for the better. This lethal force is the reason why we haven’t seen too much innovation in the past decades. This toxic force is not a disease or an illness. This lethal force lives within us and often gets the best of us from doing what we should do. This toxic force is Resistance. Resistance is the root of laziness, unhappiness, and failure to reach our goals. R
Time flies so fast, the season of giving is here again. Any great gift ideas to your loved ones? Colleagues? Bosses? I hope you don’t spend too much money to show your appreciation.
It’s always a tradition to spend money or use our savings to give gifts to someone special to us. This consumerist lifestyle is always present during holidays, it’s how we show value to someone. What’s worse is, we even give gifts for someone we despise but since it’s Christmas we wear masks and
When we feel negative feelings like anger, we often use that negative energy towards someone. We shout at them, curse at them and in worst case scenarios we hit them physically. We are angry for these reasons: We have this sense of entitlement.
We feel stress.
We are manipulative, we want events to happen which is beyond our control.
We lack perspective.
We had a rough childhood and environment. Our family background and surroundings play a huge role in our attitude.
“It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.” Epictetus Dealing with reality is often hard. Why? Because we resist it. Resisting reality can make our life worse. There are times when we thought that we are accepting reality but what we are doing is quite the opposite. Reality exists whether we like it or not. We cannot change what is going to happen us. Our only choice is how we react to certain events. In dealing with life problems, we often accuse ot
Photo by Simon Migaj on Unsplash We’ve all experienced suffering in our lives, we suffer because of our problems like financially, relationship and, events that placed us in a shock or trauma like illness, death, and freak accidents. We whine and complain when we suffer all the time. Why? Because of our entitlement. We thought that we are special, but we're not. We love to point out and accuse other people because of the suffering that is dealt with us. When we are poor, we p
Life is full of opportunities. Every day we have the chance to become better at what we do and the opportunity to change our lives. However, when the “door” of opportunity is right in front of us, we close it, shy away from it and say “I’m not good enough.” We always want to become someone who is good or excellent at our jobs or the things we do to make a living. Those words are caused by fear. The fear of getting out of our comfort zone. The fear of being labeled as a failur
Since our book of the month is 12 Rules For Life written by Jordan B. Peterson. I made my own simple list that you can follow or use it as a foundation in your life. So who is Jordan B. Peterson? He is a Canadian clinical psychologist and public intellectual, who is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. His primary areas of study are in abnormal, social, and personality psychology, with a particular interest in the psychology of religious and ideological bel
Throughout our lifetime we will face a particular event that requires a decision. This decision will have a massive effect on us as it can boost our careers, reach success or fail from achieving our goals. When we want to start a project or a business, quit our job to start doing what we love, have meaningful life and relationships it all comes down to making a decision. However, every time we need to make a decision we are indecisive about it. Why? Because we start listening
In this world, a lot of people complain and whine about what they don’t have. They complain about not having these brand new phones, branded clothing, brand new cars, latest gadgets and other materialistic desires driven by the Ego. People complain about these unfortunate events that are happening to them just like when they are stuck in traffic, unable to close deals with a client, losing a job, political issues(which people complain a lot, but they don’t know how the system
In life, A lot of us are are waiting to be picked to present our ideas, waiting for the right opportunity to show the world how special we are. You could be part of those people who are struggling and waiting to be drafted. The truth is you don't need to wait. You can carve your path and start doing things that you love. Start doing things that matter to you and the people around you. In life, there are no rescue boats. Don't wait to be rescued. No one will rescue you. There'
Wasting our precious time is so fun right? We enjoy wasting it by doing unmeaningful things. Watching cat videos are fun, searching for memes are fun, catching up with latest gossips is fun (for you). Maybe you are one of the people who always talks about people behind their backs. Maybe you like wasting your time by numbing yourself with alcohol or smoke bunch of cigarettes, believing that it could heal your stress and depression. Maybe I just summed up your personality. Don
When you were young you use to say "I want to be the best ______ in the world. Be the youngest to _____." Remember those times? The flashes of inspiration that give us the motivation to do the things we love but how did that work out? If you are successful now, that's good but not everyone makes the climb towards the top of the mountain. Some of us are lost towards the journey and ask ourselves. "Did I make the right choice or am I trying to be good at the wrong thing?" A lot
“People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.” Earl Nightingale Each one of us have goals in our life whether its short-term or long-term goals we want to achieve it because it gives us the meaning of success. Your specific goal carves you a path that no other people want maybe because they are afraid to fail or change their current lifestyle. If you are happy with your current lifestyle and you feel that you can achieve your goals by living that way, that
"You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think."
Marcus Aurelius During the era of the ancient Romans, everybody has their eyes glued on a victorious general parading on his way home. Being showered with compliments and praised by the crowd because of the victory he has achieved. Only a few noticed a slave behind him whispering "Remember, thou art mortal." Memento Mori is often portrayed as a skull by artists and religion in their mosaics, p
“Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard Than anyone else expects you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself and be lenient to everyone else” - Henry ward Beecher Never have I ever Smoked, never have I ever been drinking alcohol, never have I ever smoked marijuana or taken any other drug although its common practice in my environment. Society oftentimes forces us to adopt behavior which is not beneficial for our personal development.
When was the last time you were called a failure? How does it feel to not reach the peak of the mountain of your certain goal? How does it feel to not become the person that other people are expecting you to become? Failure the word we all fear. You might be a D grader or even worse. Some people give up when they are labeled failure by people. The label failure is given to you usually means you're dumb and even stupid. The educational system tells us that once you fail these
As you read the headline you're probably be thinking. Who the hell am I to write about some ancient philosophy to help you improve your life? Well, I want you to know something about me first. I was a guy who was depressed, stressed, anxious, and afraid of failure. I used to dwell on my problems so much that it caused me sleepless nights focusing on how I can solve these types of situations. Then one day when I was watching YouTube videos about philosophy I encountered Stoici
