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

When we collide (and life hits hard)

As Biffy Clyro sings, Many of Horror (When We Collide), we seem to live always alert, always ready for something bad to happen. The truth is, not that many bad things in life are later happening, luckily. In addition, the worst can happen is a well-known one, when any of our beloved ones passes away. Moreover, this is what exactly has happened recently in my closest circle. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do when these things happen. Apart from being there, being suppo

The one thing that matters (and nothing else)

As Victor Kuppers says – Be sure the thing that matters the most is that single thing that matters the most, nothing else. It seems obvious and simple. However, let me ask a simple question to you. If in the middle of your daily busy day, someone would come to you and ask you that? What would you answer? Probably you would think that person is awkward, weird and crazy. Who in his/her own judgment (full of ego and lack of presence) would take that question seriously at that ti

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

The story of the man who broke his ego two hundred times and kept going.

Probably he doesn’t know I’m writing about him during this precise second. Probably if he discover this post, he will get mad at me. I will take the risk. I choose to write about him, because, removing admired and people (family, friends, relatives) he is probably the closest person I’ve met to be a living legend. He is my Kung-Fu and mixed martial arts teacher. I will slightly mention he is world champion in several disciplines of the martial art already and he will keep rep

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

Why you shouldn’t believe in luck

First of all, because as any psychologist will tell you, it’s a limiting belief, which will play a non-desired role in your life, taking you to make decisions in an arbitrary way, rather than stepping into your own path (although as you might know there is no path, it’s just here and now). Secondly, because it will remove ownership to your actions, or as we usually do, we will take it just when the outcome is good or positive, removing ourselves from the equation when the har

When there’s nothing left (and you want to give up)

When you are about to throw the towel. When the fears and comfort zone are crying inside loud to their maximum level. Suddenly everything seems to go wrong and you have been left alone, where no-one else can see. It seems as if the world was about to end. But just in our heads, hearts and souls. The world will keep turning, into a million of galaxies universe, where we are an infinitesimal portion of time and form. It just takes a big breath, inhaling, exhaling, and elevate o

Moving away from perpetual denial

Is there anything better than the feeling of being special? The same feeling you get when you are an unbroken child and your father, mother or that person teaches you something you end up loving or shows you that awesome new thing you didn’t know it existed. Or the feeling you get when you meet someone special, in which you mirror and project the feelings you get, expecting the other person feels the same about you, and it’s awesome. Or the one you get when you arrive at that

The ones reaching first win. Bullshit.

The one who enjoys the race does. No one wins when he or she are not liking what he or she does. Most of us want to know how to do enjoy the way, the path. The main problem in the equation is we are still waiting for someone to come and give us the three magic bullet points that will change our lives, how we perceive our job or how being happier. Hey, stop that!. Wake up!. No one is going to make that for me, you or anybody. You can attend to courses, seminars, reading about

The worst thing can happen

To you, to me, to anybody is under normal circumstances and present options, we make the conscious choice of stop learning and sharing our knowledge. Dr. Marisa Peer explains it in her video. She has proved throughout the time with thousands of elite athletes and sport eminences, artists and well-known creators in the world. The reality, even if we like it or not is that schools, universities and mainly society are preparing us most of the times to pass the exams and then sta

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

Dream what you want. Be what you dream

Walking the talk is the one and only way. It works. Dreams, desires, goals and aims are just propaganda, if not accompanied by real and truthful actions. Everything else is just metaphysical ending in the nothing. Be true to yourself. Stop the hidden agendas, uncover the ones who have them. They just work for the short term. Open your mind to ideas and actions, regardless who is sharing them. Stop judging and start observing and question yourself as children do. Limit yoursel

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

Why loving our pain

This is the eternal paradox. Recent studies carried out in hundreds of hospitals around the world are revealing 80% of terminal people when asked, what's your number one regret in your life?, they come to a very simple and powerful response; "I did live the life of many others, but mine" and "I was not truthful to myself". At the same time, most of those people when asked if would have had the same friends, jobs or relationships (the what) they replied YES. However, again wha

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
