    What Are You Grateful For Today?

    There are countless studies explaining why gratitude works and how it impacts positively our well-being.

    1,986 words on happiness, clarity, speed, introversion, attachment and confidence

    All that matters in life is that we are happy with it. After all, who did we build big businesses, amass fortunes, and live so extravagantly for in the first place? If it was for others, our own happiness was never pursued. If we happen to be content, it is only out of circumstance and not out...

    From Hustle Burnout to Working 10hrs/week and Loving Life

    How do you become a happy person?

    ** PLEASE IGNORE ALL MY PREVIOUS POSTS ** I want to start off with that. It was all stuff that came in to my mind and I thought 'oh, I can make money that way'. I finally realize the main goal should not be money. It's a 'reward' for delivering help to the needed. I'm 24, no job and living at...

    The Biggest Disease Affecting Humanity - CRITICAL

    I recently came across this talk & it affected me pretty deeply. I feel like many of us have this "I am not enough" mindset deep down in their unconscious, and I think it can be either a driving factor for growth or the thing that limits their life severely. What do I mean by this? Either...

    Crushing the Comfort Zone

    I've been thinking (and researching) about comfort zones and how they can hinder your ability to grow as a person. There is also evidence that your business can stall/suffer if you stay in the comfort zone too long. My research is starting to convince me that pushing yourself and your business...

    How do I get 100% happy?

    I'm happy in a way! I've got a girlfriend, friends, good relationship with my family and a fulltime job. If people ask me what I do besides my job that's the moment I start feeling uncomfortable.

    Finally... Money CAN Buy Happiness.

    Been saying it for years, but the reasoned argument never can make it beyond the noise of the Mainstream Media who wants you to be a compliant and mindless drone who accepts the 9-to-5, Just-Over-Broke paradigm. I'm only upset that I wasn't asked to contribute...
