We often think we need more of everything to get what we want. In truth, we need less of everything, so we can give more, and be better focused on our vision.

Start practicing living below your means. When you feel you are drawn into a scarcity mindset, practice a form of giving to rewire your brain. Find one thing to give and do so right away.

Commit to taking action on the experiences you desire, and stop waiting for the right time. There is never a good time to follow your dreams. When you go ahead and do it, your brain will find a way to deal with the potential time clashes.

Being the catalyst for change

Amazing things in the world are not created by people with superhuman powers. People like you do extraordinary things every single day.

You're one of those people. All you need is to put something out in the world that provides value to other people. Your ideas are just as good. Have faith in yourself, and become the catalyst for something.

Love is everywhere

We all have days where we need extra love. Love is all around us. It is not hard to find; it's just that you have to give it first before you can receive it.

Do a nice gesture for someone and watch the love and appreciation be reflected back to you through their eyes.

Tomorrow could be your last day

We may think that we are going to live forever, but we are not. Nothing is guaranteed.

It's easy to keep procrastinating. Once you acknowledge that you're not here forever, you'll find a new sense of urgency. You'll follow your passion every day and stop following everyone else.
