1. Know Yourself

1. Know Yourself

Knowing yourself can be hard for many people. It is vague and we are not quite sure how to start on the journey. Here is a simple way you can start. 

We learn more about ourselves when we place ourselves in unfamiliar situations. So, put yourself in a situation you would not normally be in and take a notepad and pen to jot down what you learned. 

It could be going on a solo holiday or eating out alone.

It is better to walk alone than to walk with a load. You should make sure that all those who bring negativity, even if they are close to your heart, exit your life. 

You will constantly go through life with baggage you do not need if you keep people around you that weigh you down.

5. Do Not Compare Yourself To Those On Social Media

5. Do Not Compare Yourself To Those On Social Media

Remember that not everything you see on social media is real. Most people upload their best photos and best experiences of life on there. That gives others the impression that their life is all butterflies and rainbows. 

However, that is probably not the case. We all go through tough times, and we do not look our best all the time. So do not compare yourself to a false reality.

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.

Sean Green

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

samz905

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

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.

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!
