Who doesn’t get scared from time to time?

Everyone gets scared once in a while, it happens at random times and it’s never a comfortable experience. We’ve all had scary experiences in our life and some still haunt us today.

There are many reasons to be scared when you’re younger but society lets you know that as you get older there’s no time for being scared. When I was younger my biggest fear was dolls, I was always afraid that someday they would come alive and try to hurt me.

Now as a young adult, my biggest fear is my future and it’s almost the same level of…


The truth about what it takes to grow…

Why do we run away from change even when we know it’s coming? It’s uncomfortable, nobody likes to break their daily routine because it’s something they’ve become accustomed to. Having the same routine every day can be convenient, especially for time purposes.

Living by a routine allows you to have some sort of structure to your day, you’re not wasting time or waiting around to do something. It’s also good to be spontaneous at times too, having your routine shaken up every now and then can be stressful but can also give you some excitement throughout the week.

You will…


The long journey that comes with positive thinking…

You get to choose how you think, you probably don’t put a lot of effort into the thoughts you have but it’s important that you do at times. Think about the last time where your life wasn’t going in what you thought was the right direction.

Your thoughts actually determined a lot about how your life continued at that point in time. Now, think about the last time you were positive, your thoughts determined the rest of your life at that time too. Which part of life felt better, when you positive or when you were negative?

We fail to…


“More money, more problems,” is it true?

There are different types of success, there’s success in academics, there’s success in athletics, and then there’s the success that everyone seems to want which is financial. With everyone competing for this common goal, there has to be something special about it.

Financial success is something that not everyone gets to experience in their lives, we see family members and friends who we grow up with struggle with money and we want a way out.

Will financial success really cure all of the problems we have psychologically? You probably want financial success because of the monetary issues that are going…


Stop going into the week stressed out

Going into a new week can be stressful, it’s not often where we are truly excited for the upcoming week. The only time we’re excited is if we’re going on a trip or there’s some type of holiday coming up. We need to start being happy for the weeks we have left in our life, the more we stress about them, the more stressful they will actually become.

You are in charge of how your week goes, there will be some external factors that come into play but you always have control. …


It’s never easy to accept the truth

The truth hurts, you can’t make up any more lies in your head once you hear a piece of advice that’s true. When you hear something that you didn't want to hear but you needed to hear, you go into panic mode. You knew this would be something you had to do but you didn't want to believe it.

You thought that somehow you could be an exception to the rule but no, life doesn't feel sorry for you. …


Your life will change after this decision

Taking on more than one side hustle comes when the opportunity is presented to you. More people find success when taking on one and focusing on that one but there are also people who just love the hustle.

Having multiple side hustles is a responsibility, not everyone is going to want this responsibility but some people do. …


An unpromised risk to take…

Success is what everybody wants and there are many people in this world who are willing to do what it takes to get it. For some odd reason, it feels like success only comes to certain people.

There are people who have risked everything and have given everything they’ve had to become successful and they still didn’t reach it. Is there a secret recipe that only a few people know about or is it something that is so obvious to us that we tend to overlook it at times?

Having perseverance sounds like a good tactic to use but it…


Putting in the work while keeping your mouth shut is a task

Why do we brag about our work so much? At the end of the day, it doesn’t make us look cool, especially if we don’t have any results to go with it. Yes, there’s a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that go into your side business but no one wants to hear about it.

You probably feel bad when talking about the amount of work you’ve put in or you catch yourself trying to one-up a person when they’re talking about the work they’ve been putting in.

We’ve all been in a position like this, as humans, we are…


Do you really know the person who you look up to?

Throughout our life, we look to different people who have some sort of influence in our lives. When we were kids it could’ve been Superman, when we were teenagers it could’ve been a musician and as adults, we look up to authors, mentors, and even people with high status.

It’s not a bad thing to look up to somebody, you just have to understand that you are your own person and there's nothing you can do to become that exact person you look up to.
