You can't only rely on will power. The bigger the change, the more it will sap self-control. Why? It causes exhaustion of mental muscles which are needed to focus, inhibit impulses and persist when facing frustration or failure. In essence, you are exhausting muscles needed for change. Change is hard not because you are lazy, but because you are wearing yourself out. So it's important you respect the signs your body tells you. We aren't super human. So don't try to be. Putting yourself in a position to win and...

"To get what you want, you have to deserve what you want. The world is not yet a crazy enough place to reward a whole bunch of undeserving people."  ― Charles T. Munger   If you're not investing and improving on yourself everyday, you will not be successful. This doesn't mean putting in 15hrs a day of continuous studying, but it does mean learning at least one thing before you go to bed for the rest of your life. At the end, it adds up. Most of these determinants are...

You have to start thinking of the common similarities from the things that usually capture our attention. Why are conspiracy theories so compelling? Why are scandals so riveting? Why are we so intrigued about stories of the downfall of a celebrity or athlete? Why...

Growth happens naturally...right? I mean as babies, barring any abnormalities, we grow naturally. At least when it comes to it physically. But what about when it comes to personal development? That's on you. Often, we seem to use the same tool (hammer) for every problem we come across. Being that life is dynamic and constantly changing it would be safe to assume that we can't approach every problem with the same mindset. With that said, there seems to be a misunderstanding that suggests every obstacle in life naturally just gets...

Have you noticed growing up that almost everyone’s career advice was: Follow your passion. I’m sure you have. In fact, I’ve actually been given that advice countless of times. Find and do what you love. It’s the only way.  But what if I were to tell you that it’s all a mirage. The advice sounds good.  It feels good.

The ability to handle multiple shifting variables can determine how successful you are. That’s according to The Self-Made Billionaire Effect by John Sviokla.  Think about it.  How many times do we experience change in our lives? A lot. How many of us adjust to this change? Very few. Most can’t or won’t ever shift with the changes. And for the small sum that do adjust, they usually shift too fast.  Put this into perspective when it comes to achieving your goals, people tend to either have a lot of imagination/vision...

Whether you get invited to a party, interviewing to get that dream career, or impress your date, there is one factor that often gets in the way: confidence. In particular, a lack of self-confidence means you lose sight in yourself. The same can be said with being over-confident.  You usually don’t want to lose confidence. On the contrary, today many people are overconfident which can lead you down the wrong path too. Of course, everyone’s confidence varies in different aspects of life.  You can get nervous meeting new people. You...
