¿Por qué hablamos de salud mental, en lugar de hablar sobre nuestro corazón y sentimientos?

Parece que si usas los términos "mente", "cerebro", "pienso", "creo que", "tengo que" estás en línea con el momento actual y el acervo popular aceptado como "bueno" hoy en día. Parece que se valora enormemente el ser "productivo", "proactiva", "multitasking", "propensa al riesgo", "afín a la ambigüedad" o "excelente soportador/a de estrés". Son aptitudes y actitudes muy valoradas en el mundo actual, por las empresas y parece ser que por los trabajadores de hoy día, tanto en e

La farsa de la linealidad del tiempo (y del espacio)

Sobre este tema ya hay varios estudiosos que ponen en duda que tiempo y espacio funcionan y son como nos han enseñado. De hecho yo, como autor de este post, soy el primero que lo pone en duda. Autores como Benjamin P. Hardy Phd, de obras tan brillantes Slipstream Time Hacking: How to Cheat Time ya lo cuentan apoyados en teorías igual de locas y reales como que 1+1=2. Quien nos lo iba a decir, ¿verdad?. Parece que sin matemáticos, físicos, filósofos, religiosos, y otros mucho

¿Por qué los optimistas son héroes del día a día?

Muy sencillo, porque son capaces de traer vida a lugares, momentos, vibraciones y personas muertos/as en vida. Y no me refiero a optimistas empedernidos o soñadores despiertos que viven en los mundos de Yupi, apartados de las problemáticas diarias y actuales. Photo by Марьян Блан | @marjanblan on Unsplash No. Me refiero a aquellos que igual que otros que eligen hacer del miedo, la cobardía, la envidia y la ira su bandera, por el contrario, eligen hacer pedazos su corazón para

Entrepreneurship. What´s behind the fear?

So more fear. Now, a fear that each one of us can transform into whatever we want: creativity or anxiety? And it goes from time to time... For 20 days I've found myself depending on nothing more than myself to generate income. For the moment I have generated zero. However, I have generated a few expenses... This situation thought quickly generates anxiety, at least in me. Although later and calmly I understand and feel that it is as it should be. From there what I continue de

Emprendiendo. ¿Qué hay detrás del miedo?

Pues más miedo. Ahora bien, un miedo que cada uno/a puede transformar en lo que quiera. ¿Creatividad o ansiedad?. Y va a ratos... Hace 20 días que me encuentro dependiendo nada más que de mí mismo para generar ingresos. Por el momento he generado cero. Eso sí, gastos he generado unos cuantos... Esta situación pensada rápidamente genera ansiedad, al menos en mí. Aunque después y con calma entiendo y siento que es así como debe ser. De ahí lo que sigo decidiendo es sacar mi fu

The 5 AM Club, why you should read it

It’s been a while since publishing last. But better late than never. Currently I’m at one of my most loved spots in Dublin getting inspired, feeling grateful and doing one of the things in the world I enjoy the most, producing something forever. Writing. Copyright @ Robin Sharma’s Book Cover For those ones who follow Robin Sharma, simply a quick wake up call. Don’t just think because you follow him regularly you already know all what his last book offers, as you will learn an

Me llamo Gennet. Así vencí al silencio y a la oscuridad

Es importante saber, el propio Director de la película sobre la que habla este post me ha confirmado hoy que vamos a sortear dos entradas para el preestreno el día 5 de Abril entre los que repostéis y consigáis mayor circulación en redes sociales con me gusta a este post. El ganador se confirmara esa misma semana de Abril con un email personal y una sorpresa especial. Esta es probablemente la publicación de la que me siento más orgulloso y pequeño al mismo tiempo, por el solo

My Name is Gennet. When humans defy the impossible

This is probably the post I feel most proud and humbled to be part of, just writing it. And that is because the person I’m going to introduce and his God father are both people incarnating values I truly admire in people. Copyright @MiguelAngelTobias Ruthless perseverance, immeasurable courage, true faith in themselves and higher drive pursue every day of their lives. And the way our paths crossed was highly intentional-accidental. I was at home trying to convince my wife to

Attitude must be shown when we want to show it less

It doesn’t matter what we did in the past, what we are doing now, or what we are thinking to do next. The past does not exist neither the future, it’s just here and now. This is what we really are, now. To align with ourselves and the universe around us, to know who and how we want to be and behave is something to be done every day as if it was the first one and the last one, because that is the only thing which makes our existence meaningful. Doing what is required at the ri

Why do we always want more?

Why just when we start enjoying what a second ago, a life ago was an aspiration (or another check of the wish list) we are still hungry for the next thing in the list. There are many reasons why, as many as people populating the planet, however there is a very common denominator. What it really happens if we are not able to control those emotions, is we are removing from that moment itself the beauty of simply enjoy it. And what is really the point in desiring something so mu

Why we don't like to wait

But we love to do, to try, to reach, to discover, to travel, to read, to not stop, to talk, to discuss, and to see new things “out there”. And what happen once we've done, tried, reached, discovered or travelled? We keep having an impetuous desire inside telling us to keep searching for more emotions out there, without stopping to begin again. Usually what happen is we never get this desire satisfied, and we want more and more. We will never get enough. Because what we are co

What we can’t see – And how it does impact our daily lives

Since the beginning of the human era, thousands of human beings have tried to be more linked to the spiritual side. Linked to things we cannot see. Not only because that unknown is in itself attractive but also because most of us we are confident there is something else. Something we cannot see. We are not talking here about religion, goddess or supernatural powers. We are talking about energy. As the hormones or the WI-FI, we cannot see them or touch them, but they do exist

Courage - Loving to fail repeatedly, and keep trying over and over again

Who would in their own sanity be happy to fail over and over again? The ones who know they have nothing to lose and a lot to win. Probably the only ones who decide genuinely to stay true to their values over the average. The ones who are awake enough to meet the real opportunity life means. The ones who know what means to overcome daily basis the today’s stigma – “you can’t fail” The ones who really understand failure as a natural way of experience and learn from anyone or an

Why a second can change a whole life

Because it can be used in a totally different way we are used to using it every single day, hour and minute we use our capabilities to make the most of our opportunities. There is a quote to brain tattoo — same inputs, same outcomes. If we decide to keep judging, acting, reacting and thinking the same way we are doing it right now, how can we expect things will change for us?. If we are not changing the way we process information and act on it, how can we expect changes in th

The obstacle is the way

This is not only the title of a great book full of insights by Ryan Holyday, but also one of hottest topic studied since the beginning of the human era. It’s a gift is well inner-integrated. The obstacle is there to teach us something or many things. However, the obstacle is not going to take the form of a meaningful learning point unless we let the most painful part of it telling us what it means. And for that to happen, we need to let the ghosts of the past visit us today.

The brave don’t wait till Friday. They enjoy Mondays (and Tuesdays)

As Patti Smith Group used to sing in 1978; because the night belongs to lovers, Mondays are those days that most of us insist to remove from our calendars. A sad learning point that instantly should come to our minds, is that any Monday could be a powerful game changer in our lives if we just would pay attention to what it really means, in spite of swearing on them. After that, we might come to understand that loving ourselves it’s the beginning to start loving in a proper ma

What will set you apart? (If you know it, and do something about it)

Knowing and acting based on deep knowledge and understanding of some basic concepts. We are part of something much bigger than ourselves. Magic will not happen if we are not ready for the magic to happen. 1. We are going to die at some point 2. We are not cleverer than someone else 3. Life is not a solo mission 4. We the people need each other people to be happier 5. Finding what makes us happy 6. Getting rid of toxic people (or getting to know how to deal w

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

Learning from close encounters with death. Kepa Acero’s Testimony

It’s a pleasure to start this post, literary citing one of my most admired people using literally his words after the recent accident suffered surfing at his beloved Mundaka. If he was already one of the most time and life self-aware persons I have ever listened to, now this taking place, it seems like everything he was predicting came true. Thank you Kepa for sharing such powerful insights with us, and so it goes, from Kepa’s Video “The vast majority of the things we are afr

What’s behind a bigger purpose? Is it genetics, or is it earned?

Beginning this post providing evidence from several studies carried out in this field. According to them a slight variation in a particular gene is associated with bigger purpose and sometimes altruistic behavior. Greater Good Magazine article from Berkeley University, which you can also read fully here analyzed this. In the study, published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, German researchers took a saliva sample from 101 men and women, using the sa
