Books are some really great tools for improvement but they can be easily misused. Despite the powerful information they carry, they can also be used as a how to guide which can impact the very thing you want to accomplish, which is improvement. The books should be read in order to be inspired not in order to follow a step by step process.
The biggest books we ever know are ourselves which we gained throughout our experiences on this planet. Our inner voice will always beat the book we are trying to “follow “therefore books should only be used for inspiration purposes only. Your own voice is the one which is the most qualified for you to listen to. Then inspiration can be gathered from other resources.
Working on “how to material” makes you focus on the idea that you are lacking the “x rather than you have it and you can give yourself more of it. For that reason you can be working on them for a long time and see very little improvements.
The most common type of learning is social learning which is feels the most natural as well . We are meant to fit in groups circles, to simply fit in with people and in order to do that we have to take information on board .You will be fed popular beliefs whether you want to or not because most of the time you have no option but to take it on board due to the fact that you simply do not have time to research all the information you get so you choose to accept it . We can picture our brain like a sponge that just absorb information as we move along , and we rarely question what we get . Why ?
Just because it easier to accept it as the truth .
We now live in era where all that matters is who is first to distribute the information so therefore it is passed around . Even though we can now access the information we want at the speed of the click , a lot of it can be fake or it is no longer current and we can therefore spread it ourselves .It is an era where instant gratification is promoted everywhere : socializing , games , food . All these activities which we chase to bring us instant pleasure will weaken our muscle to desire the most rewarding ones like let’s say : the good old books written by the real masters of subjects .I strongly believe that anything you want to excel at you need to pick a mentor someone that is at the top of the game you want to pursue and he is truly qualified to help you , not the people who have made it , nor the people who have quit. The thing is the surroundings is always eager to comment on your intention and the comment will be driven a few things such as how successful they feel with their accomplishments , how loved they are . Revealing your real intention to people who aren’t fan of yours will lead you astray.
Other type of learning is by being present and by doing which is underestimated but this type of learning is very effective because what you experience is a lot easier to remember that the information that is absorbed . It has a more powerful impact but it is more meaningful .Whenever you have been a kid i am sure many times you had to learn the “hard way ” , which truly thought you rather than just following something that you can’t really validate .Without taking risks , doing new things ,being what they call , an ” idiot” you are sabotaging yourself . Be that idiot they tell you not to be , because you will learn more and that will last .
What does Monday represent to you?
To me Monday is the real start of the week, where you test your productivity, you want to see how much you can get done, this is also the day where you open up your calendar and you check for any white spots to fill them up. To most Monday is just a boring day of the week where you lack compassion, drive, and motivation and will to go forward. Monday is the day where you start being very productive once again; you set the tone for the rest of the week. You set the tone to dominate not compete because competition is good domination is immunity.
The time has come for Monday, to fill up your pipeline, be opportunity focused. It’s ok to be real hungry for success it’s ok to be obsessed.
The only thing gravity does, is to hold you down!
I have to admit this morning i had no drive because i was once again, or continuously socialized by my surroundings. They apply limits on me , i am surrounded by people who have no drive every single day .Everyone is trying to make me feel like i arrived at the destination every single day of my life , this is why i have to stop caring about what people say and what they want me to do .
If you are going through a stressful period, feel lonely or if you overthink thoughts and you are not very present. Try listening this with headphones or earphones. Spend the time to really take it in and it will really change your day!
It is very easy to lose yourself into routine work and into living in the past. In order to create the future you really want, you can follow these suggestions:
- Get rid of “friends ” that do not support you and do not appreciate you , relationships which fell off but then you decided to leave it because you thought it was ok anyway .Such friendships will only keep you in the past , cutting your wings to evolve into the person that you want to do . You need to burn those bridges between the past and the present.
- Listen to your gut instinct more often , and follow it , act upon it because it will lead you somewhere meaningful
- If your reputation has been stained you have to protect it no matter what , you either change your power circle ( the group of people you hang out with ) or you change location
- Spend more time with yourself ( get to know you more , rather than to know the identity that you have been given )
- Realize that you actual do not have any REAL friends; the only REAL friend you have is yourself.
One of the hardest things you can do is finding your purpose, the ladder you want to climb. We have a limited time on this planet therefore you do want to find the right ladder to climb.
If you feel you are lost or you have not found your purpose, I do completely recommend giving this book a read. Law of attraction by Jack Canfield systematically breaks down how you can find it and he provides structure in the exercises you have to complete.

It has become an absolute fashion for the majority to complain about events that happen to them .People now find it normal to complain about what is happening to them rather than to adapt or embrace it. Every single time we complain about something we directly admit that we are helpless and that thing controls us , and we are also getting ourselves sold on why life is not worth living , rather than why it is worth living . The side effects of this “normal” habit are that instead of focusing on opportunities you are focusing on non-opportunities therefore you are shackling yourself.
Do you find yourself doing that just to get along the people you surround yourself?
If the answer is yes than you are sabotaging yourself and you should stop doing that.
There are many levels of complainers or we can also say negative people. Depending on how much control you assume over your life and what you focus on , you will find yourself on a scale somewhere between very negative to very positive .
Few things which play an important role in being negative:
- Media (the media is controlling the population by feeding us reasons to be scared for , making us predisposed to receive negativity )
- Perhaps a big part of your life on how you views things that were happening to you because you might have thought it was normal or enough
- The people we surround yourself with, the ones we know they are being negative and we just continue to listen to them.
- Focusing on non-opportunities
Depending on how deeply embedded your mind is onto focusing on the negative you can turn it around by working hard for that.
My positivity battle plan consists of (these activities must be executed daily):
- 20-30 min Abundance meditation daily
- 5 min Apps like Mood-mint to help you program your focus.
- Achievement Journal ( Write down 10 productive things you have done every day )
- Gratitude Journal ( Write 10 things you are grateful for every day )
For the absolute killers you can go for Positivity challenge. The challenge is to complete a full day of being nothing but positive. Every single time you view things negatively you reset the clock.
Bare in mind , researchers say it takes 66 days to form a habit so you know how much you need to do it to notice differences .
