Master your emotions

Over the period of our time, we come over so many things that we get easily attached. Losing our attachements makes us sad but the only way we’ll survive or overcome them is by keeping those emotions in check — if we can keep steady no matter what happens no matter how many external events may fluctuate. This is not the first failure or success, yet there are many more. Our emotions should be constant.

Practice Persistence

Remember and remind yourself of a phrase by Epictetus: “presist and resist”. Persist in your efforts. Resist giving in to distraction, discouragement, or disorder.

Doing new thing invariably means obstacles. A new path is, by definition, uncleared. Only in struggling with the impediments that made other quit can we find ourselves on untrodden territory only by persisting and resisting can we learn what others were too impatient to be taught. It’s okay to be discouraged. It’s not okay to quit.

Live the present moment

The implications of our obstacles are theoretical- they exist in the past and the future. We live in the moment. And the more we embrace that, the easier the obstacle will be to face and move.

No matter what type of storm you have survived, no matter how much you’ve been hurt. No matter how many times you’ve failed over the years. No matter what you’ve gone through, or what you’ve lost. Leave the past in the past. Live the present.

Focus on process

The process is about finishing. Finishing games, Finishing workouts. Finishing blocks. Finishing drives. Finishing reps. Finishing plays. Finishing blocks. Finishing the smallest task you have right in front of you and finishing it well.

Whether it’s pursuing the pinnacle of success in your field or simply surviving some awful or trying ordeal, the same approach works. Don’t think about the end- think about surviving.

The Discipline of Perception

In the Panic of 1857, a massive national finanical crisis that originated in Ohio. John D. Rockefeller could have gotten scared. Here was the greatest market depression in history and it hit him just as he was finally getting the hang of things. He could have pullet out and run like others. He could have quit finance altogether for a different carrer with less risk. Even after the crisis.

Within twenty years of that first crisis, Rockefeller would alone control 90 percent of the oil market.

What is not up to us?

Well, everything else. The weather, the economy, circumstances, other people’s emotions or judgments, disasters.

We always wish we would never struggle, we do our best to avoid trouble. What great people do is the opposite. They are their best in these situations. They turn personal tragedy or misfortune really anything, everything- to their advantage.

Is this your last obstacle?

Whether it is a problem at our work or a problem at our home. We go through a lot of problems in our life. Our mind is always passive on the obstacle, honestly, our brain never wants to meet with a new problem again.

Our life is like a stock graph. There’s high and there’s low. In every low, we should keep moving no matter what we lose.

Get moving

Our mind is so vulnerable. We are so weak and afraid of changes, we want to live inside a comfort zone forever. Yet we don’t realize every year a tree has to tolerate various seasons from cold to scorching hot to obtain greenery and be able to produce fruits. We expect so many things yet we get so little. We judge our stories with others. We feel the victim of not getting what we want. Thus, we argue and criticize for getting less.

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

Sean Green

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

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!

Jamyson Haug

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

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!

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.

Ghazala Begum
