The Problem With Being Yourself

The Problem With Being Yourself

Most people don’t even know how to be themselves, the problem here is that you haven’t been yourself for years.

You have been this fake version of yourself, buying into all these limitations, not achieving what you truly are capable of, and you’ve been there for so long that you confused it with authenticity.

Identify Your Values

Identify Your Values

  1. Find what matters to you. Take time to reflect on what matters to you and how you want to live your life.
  2. Embrace your strengths and imperfections. Take the time to get to know yourself and recognize your strengths and weaknesses. Be bold and embrace both, as they make you unique and special.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Shankul Varada

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.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

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.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Laetitia Berton

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!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
