So throw off the shackles and live the best, and biggest, way you can. The only person you should allow to judge you is you. And, even then, you shouldn’t be too mean.

MORE IDEAS ON THIS

6. Know who the real judge is.

We too often limit our lives by worrying about what others think of us: Whether they will criticise us or talk about us behind our backs. Which is weird because people will do that anyway, even if we do nothing much with our lives. But the sad thing is worrying about the opinions of others stops ...

5. Get off the couch and act.

Over-thinking is a rabbit hole. As humans, we have a tendency to spend too much time in up our own heads and paying attention to our own wayward thoughts, which, ultimately, just spins us around in circles. Action is the best circuit-breaker for this. When we take action on our ideas or goals, we...

4. Minimize the toxic input.

We all devote too much time and energy to things — and people — that aren’t good for us. So run a critical eye over your own landscape and note what, and who, is hurting you or holding you back. It may be hard to wipe toxicity out altogether but at least point yourself in the right direction by c...

1. Believe you are worthy.

Seriously, if you don’t believe you deserve good things — and a good life —they won’t come to you. You will (unconsciously) sabotage what’s good in your world — and you’ll end up settling for less. This is true of work, money, relationships — everything. You deserve good things and good people in...

3. Create time to think and dream.

Thinking and dreaming doesn’t just mean staring into the void — although most of us have done plenty of that in the past year. Active thinking and dreaming is more productive. So set aside some time to think and dream into a notebook, your laptop or your phone. Capturing your ideas is important. ...

2. The Universe is your ATM

I credit author Kathrin Zenkina for this line. It’s true BUT only if you make deposits — a lot of them. If you sit back and expect the Great ATM of Life to keep spitting out the goodies at you (without you putting in any hard yards), you need a reality...

If you have too much clutter, try some Marie Kondo-ing. This should only be done when it's necessary. Afterwards, try to maintain what you've built.

Interpreting fairness

If we feel like someone else is getting a better deal than us, we’re likely to throw it back in their face.

This isn’t to say you shouldn’t fight against unfairness, but  there will always be unfairness in life and so it’s better to step back and see that opportunities we get in life...

The only way that we can live is if we grow. The only way we can grow is if we change. The only way we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we are exposed is if we throw ourselves into the open.

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

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.

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.

Jamyson Haug

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