Things I'm Trying Out

Listening to all the 'wise talks' in the world is not going to get me anywhere unless I'm applying them to my life. So thought of noting them down here and see how it goes.

- Listened to a talk by Tim Ferris on Impact Theory which was pretty awesome. The main takeaway I wanna apply to my life from his talk is working towards reaching my highest potential as a human being. That and going to start journaling (as Tim Ferris calls it).

- Still working on my 'WHY' (Simon Sinek)

- Meditation

-Working on my startup, translation and music daily even if its two mins per day

- Trying a new diet which includes meat

- Change of Mindset

- Trying and Trying

- Grey, Lots of Grey instead of black and white

- Practicing empathy

Simon Sinek - The Unshakable Optimist

Having seen this amazing interview, I think its safe to say that I have become a fan and a follower of Simon Sinek. It's not him as a person, its the 'vision of being able to go to work feeling safe and come back home fulfilled with the work you do' is what got me hooked. Well that and his amazing ability to articulate his thoughts and vision perfectly!

Only after downloading almost every single videos of his from youtube, that I discovered that his 2009 TED talk  is one of the most watched TED talks of all time !(apparently I have been living under a rock). Listening to him has made me become a much better human being, I have started practicing being of service, and finally I feel like I'm on the right path.

Anyway he describes himself as an unshakable optimist. Having watched his talks all day and week (and many years to come:D) I decided to become an unshakable optimist myself! yes, there I said it.

From now on I shall practice being an unshakable optimist!


Trusting oneself

When I was in school, I was so in touch with my inner self. some call it 'gut feeling'. I was really doing well in life, I was happy, didn`t get involved with dramatic relationships and was truly happy being alone and loved it. As time went on I started getting lost in touch with myself, let my hormones take control over my life and made decisions purely on extreme emotions. Some of the things I thought I wanted so badly ended up being the things that I want to run away from.

I'm still very much confused, trying to get closer to my 'inner self'.

Hope I can get back to my old self again.

After a really long time a tv show managed to hold my attention in a way that made me forget my reality........

Life and Rules

Three months into 2017 and I have done pretty crazy things that I wouldn`t have thought I would do in a million years and it felt so damn good.!

Anyways, I'm saying yes to life more, it just feels right. After all, the rules that I have been trying to define myself with and trying to follow seem so invalid now. Its weird because everything feels right and I just feel alive.

Several lessons learned along the way.
1. Do not picture worse case scenario all the time, just RELAX and be present. EVERY SINGLE ONE of ALL human reactions teach you something. If you look at all those as teaching moments, you will stop reacting and get closer to your inner self.

2. When its really hard to make a decision and you find yourself completely conflicted, hand over the decision to a higher power  (universe) and relax and trust that whats best for you will happen.

3. Give away love, a lot of it, not to just one person, make human interactions about love and kindness

4. The best thing that happened t…
