When Things Go Wrong

That is the time to test your character. The time to verify whether you’ve learned from your experiences. All the self-improvement books, podcasts, and videos you’ve consumed are useless if you can’t practice them in real life. What’s the point? To strengthen your character, you have to experience awful things. These awful things are opportunities … Continue Reading →



Everything you do regularly — you’ll get used to it. Until you stop questioning them. From there, you’re on autopilot. You’re just going with the flow. All good. The problem starts when life wants you to change something, but you resist. An example of this is when you become a parent. Would you still spend … Continue Reading →


Nothing’s Wrong

But the mind is always thinking there is. And that’s where most of our problems start. We view things as either flawed or perfect. But perfection is subjective. It’s personal. The common problem we all have is forgetting how lucky we are in this generation. Imagine the 1920s. Think about the people living in that … Continue Reading →


Guard Your Mind

Anything we consume online can influence our minds. If we mindlessly scroll on TikTok, Facebook, or Instagram every day, we feed our minds all those random things. Every. Single. Day. We don’t need most of those things. Most don’t have value. But why are we still doing it? I’ve written before about not owning a … Continue Reading →


Your Own World is Not Real

Your desires. Your aspirations. Your preferences. They are not purely intentional. At some point, someone instilled them in you through a social media post, blog, podcast, movie, book, or video. Anything. Or it could be your family or friends. Or school teachers, classmates, workmates, neighbors, or even strangers. Anyone. Whatever you read, watch, or hear … Continue Reading →


Overwhelmed and Paralyzed

The things to do keep piling up. Your mind is racing. Emotions all over the place. But you’re not getting anywhere. You can’t focus. Can’t even start. You are overwhelmed. Being overwhelmed is like being paralyzed. You want to move, but for some reason, you can’t. And you don’t have any idea what’s going on. … Continue Reading →


Face the Truth

The truth is the truth. It is undeniable. What you see and hear. In front of you. The truth doesn’t fool you. It is real. It is the thing. It is what’s happening. Without the sugarcoat. Without the labels. In front of you. No matter how many interpretations you have, the truth remains. You can … Continue Reading →


Multiple Threads

The mind is an open blank space. It wanders. Speculates. Analyzes. Creates. Absorbs. Thoughts come and go. Sometimes it stores what is needed. But for the most part, it discards. It forgets things that don’t matter yet. If you aim to be efficient at anything, you can’t just absorb everything that comes your way. Instead, … Continue Reading →


External Approval

Seeking external approval is human nature. When others recognize our good work, we felt seen. So we do our best to stay in that loop. After all, we did a really good job. We deserve praise once in a while. But there’s one problem: It’s addictive. And this addiction — as with other addictions — could … Continue Reading →


10 Lessons From Our 3rd Company Trip (2022)

I had to pack everything for our 8 AM flight. Make sure everything was in order. Everything we needed was in the right place. And the house was secure. Everything. 3 AM. Exhausted. Drained. I told my family to wake up before 6. Move fast. Get ready. I needed sleep. . . . “WE MISSED … Continue Reading →
