… so if you start thinking that it will, you’ll be disappointed and less effective. Instead of focusing on what you think you deserve, figure out what you want and be willing to pay the dues required to get it.
If you want something, YOU have to go after it. Don’t wait for someone else to give you the opportunity. Don’t wait for someone else to help you. If it’s your dream, it’s on YOU. If you wait, you’ll be waiting until you’re on your deathbed if you don’t take action.
Even if you have big dreams, you need to start with small victories. Those small victories will provide the fuel you need for the bigger fire you want to build. Find ways to set up milestones along the way that will keep you going. Progress is one of the most motivating forces out there.
“We all need small sparks, small accomplishments in our lives to fuel the big ones.”
There is pain, sadness, humiliation, hardship, failed dreams, death, and everyday ups and downs. To be great in life, you need to be prepared to confront this suffering. If you resist it, you’ll cause yourself even more pain. Embrace and get comfortable with the pain. Use it as motivation.
Don’t fall for the alluring trap of quick-fix (temporary or inadequate solution to a problem) life hacks. You need to learn how to harness talent, hard work, passion, and obsession to relentlessly pursue your goals. To do this well, you need to master your mind. Without mastery of your mind, you cannot unlock your full potential.
Be the 1% of people willing to do what it takes. Be the warrior. The warrior trains, battles, and never backs down. If you want to achieve the unachievable, being a warrior is the only way.
Pain unlocks the pathway to optimal performance. You have to become friends with pain, instead of running away from it.
“Pain unlocks a secret doorway in the mind, one that leads to both peak performance, and beautiful silence.”
To start living your life at full capacity, embrace the “discomfort zone” by pushing past your comfort zone incrementally, bit by bit.
For example: if you feel like giving up after 10 pushups, push yourself to do 2 more. And next time, push yourself to do more, and so on.
Next time you’re inspired to do something, but feel that sense of self-doubt start kicking in, stop yourself and ask:
“What if I did _____?” Fill in the blank with what you want to do.
Then, think about this: What would a successful outcome look like?
And finally, follow it up with action.
“The ticket to victory often comes down to bringing your very best when you feel your worst.”
"A good curated idea should be like a girl's skirt; long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest."
“The most important conversations you’ll ever have are the ones you’ll have with yourself.”—David Goggins

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
