Why we should help others more (even those we call strangers)

Firstly because there are so many proofs and studies done in the last 100 years confirming what many philosophers were already knowing. It does make 99% of human beings happier and more complete in their lives. Researchers from Oxford University concluded that being kind to others causes a small but significant improvement in subjective well-being. The review found that the effect is lower than some pop-psychology articles have claimed, but also concluded that future research

I'm that guy pushing the button

When the traffic light just went green for the cars to go. I’m that m****r-f****r turning around when an old person is standing in the bus or train whilst I’m comfortably scared thinking about losing my place. I’m that stupid guy not giving a shit when parking my car and not foreseeing well that extra space I’m taking out for another person to park. I’m that fool that takes twice the portion of what I need because I want it all me, regardless of the next ones to come. I’m tha

Xmas is not a date. It’s an attitude (365 days a year)

“Wired but not connected”. How can it be possible that we all (me included) need to wait 365 days to re-engage with the Xmas spirit and what it means? Usually means solidarity and caring for the others in a special way. Usually, during these 15 days of the year, we are more aware of the things happening beyond our bellies and cell phone screens. Why are we just more aware during Xmas? Why do we forget about family, friends, and strangers (people like us) most of the rest of d

You are not your CV (but much more)

According to a CNBC recent study 3 out of 4 people are caught by recruiters on a “lie” or on a not real statement on their CV. But this post pretends to go way beyond that conclusion. Yet the most important assets which build our CVs are: who we are now and how we behaved (the power of intention – check Wayne’s Dyer masterpiece) during the last second lived when our CV was being questioned or analyzed. Who we are now and how we act this very present second is all that matters

One angel for each nine demons

Psychology, sociology and human interactions experts say for every good deed we do or even think about there will be at least nine times we will procrastinate, or think negatively on our minds, about ourselves or others. That’s the number one reason we need to train and teach our angel as if it was the biggest muscle we have. And of course, the best training we can do for this angel of us is to make him run a marathon. For which we do really need first to learn how to make hi

Push beyond the pain

This is what someone yesterday was asking the master in mixed martial arts class, while stretching. And what did the rest do whenever he finished the question? Laugh and laugh, until he publicly assumed and recognized that it was a stupid question. This is what in the end becomes most of our days, whilst we forget or avoid to keep this brain tattoo load and clear wherever we go. This should be our daily flag and the mechanism we apply to get wherever we want to go in life, di

Who do you think you are?

Because according to studies and experts, it takes just 60 days to become an utterly different person. Saying it in other words, you can build routines and behaviours which will drastically change the person you are now, not only how people will perceive you, but most importantly how you will perceive yourself from the inside-ou Might be the case you still don’t believe it. It’s normal, as it has been like this most of the times, most of your time. However, it’s not me again

Born to be wild (born to be you)

We are all the same 70% water, bones and attitude. It’s not by chance that Steppenwolf — Born to be wild’s Video in YouTube hits exactly 35,634,747 views in this precise moment plus 151,201 likes. (Recommended is to read the article, listening the song) Probably because most of us would love to live, laugh and love wild. And why not, in the end wild is what we are. Our essence is wild, we all come from the sea. However why most of us just do wild sometimes, even most of the t

What would you die or live for?

This is about you, what is that something inside you that burns w

The calamity mind-set (the XXI century soul sickness)

Understanding the title as the automatic pilot many mode we are setting in our minds to blame our fate, will and current situations on everything else and everyone else out there. I’ve been there, you’ve been there too. Are we all still there now?. Probably yes. We cannot control everything happening around us. However what we can for sure control is our attitude and response to the outer world. We can choose now and will always have the power to react and interact with every

Comfort kills, it really does. A tribute to Ibn Ali Miller (March 2017)

Tomorrow is Monday and we may feel bad about it, being our own time!. Sounds crazy, right? Sounds ironic, no? If the answer to these questions is yes, keep reading because you, me and everybody out there could be dying right now. What if we stopped for a second and truthfully assume that might be we buying things, thoughts and values we don’t want and need to please people we don’t like. Who’s to blame there?. Just you, me, him or her, the ones who are letting this happen. I

Being the second, being successful

As Benjamin P. Hardy describes in his masterpiece “Slipstream Time Hacking ” success is not about getting our goals in life. Success is all about how we make those goals happen, and how much we do really enjoy each second we invest in getting those goals happening. Ignacio G. Campos describes success as a second, not referring a second as a momentum being a position in any competition. He describes it as how we live every infinitesimal portion of time we have the luck to live

Let yourself be beautiful

Frankie goes to Hollywood signs it in one of the best songs ever written called “The power of Love”. There are some brave and honest questions we should ask ourselves if we want to discover what does this mean, and how can we let ourselves be beautiful? Once again, by knowing what in the world is making us feel that beauty and knowing what is tearing us apart from it. Usually, it is our well know rejection to change and comfort zone moved by our reptilian brains what do a gre

Can we change the world?

According to Friedrich Nietzsche work and premonition, back in the 19th century there is an explanation to the current madness we are living now in our world. Global leaders showing us today, the worst human side, nature and actions, with the only purpose of misinform, confront and confuse us for their own and mean doable benefit. However, this madness has a clear explanation, in F.N’s opinion, which he called the total freedom stage ending in a global crisis of the most rele

Why dying while living?

Before starting, pay attention to what the lyrics of the Essence “A Mirage” in 1987 were revealing us all 30 years ago, where the essence of everything comes from. Try copying and pasting what the minute 3.30 says, then use any translation tool and get the meaning. Then, as every piece of art, make your own interpretation, which probably is the same as everyone else, as we are all part of the same essence, to know 70% water. “Be water my friend”. What is making us runaway fro

That thing you’d die for

And this is not about your love, your mum, dad, friend, son or daughter. That’s easy to feel and think about. This is about you, what is that something inside you that burns when it comes to your mind, to your stomach. Well if you don’t know it, if you forgot it and just decide to bury it in the last corner of your mind, heart or emotions, it is about time you wake that something up back to fight. You want that something back with all the strength you might have inside, becau

A life in a second

However a second, even being an insignificant portion of time, can take a whole life to be taken for playing a major role in our lives. How many times we have thought about becoming, starting, joining, and beginning. And how many seconds, hours and minutes we have been investing just imaging how our lives would be by doing something which changed it all. We spend much more time thinking in how it would be rather than the second that takes to really start the specific action w
