“Everything we experience is an integral part of our existence as humans; our relationships and the decisions we make determine many things about us. Living a good life requires knowing what it takes to overcome temptation, make the right decisions, and embrace the pressure.”

“We shouldn't base our current performance on our past records”

“Neutral thinking is a high-performance strategy that emphasizes judgment-free thinking, especially during crises and when we are under immense pressure. It's a real mental strategy that acknowledges that the past is irrevocable and unchangeable with mantras or morals. Neutral thinking shuns all attempts at illusion or outright self-delusion, which are often the foundation of other motivational systems. It takes away our biases and faces us with reality.”

“Giving up doesn't delete our problems; it only pushes it into the future where we'll reencounter the same issues.

“The truth about our lives is that things are not always going to happen the way we planned them. Mistakes and errors will come, and they'll try to put us down, but we must always rise again.”

“What happened happened. Okay. Fine. What happens next has nothing to do with that.”

“We all suffer from many biases. We suffer from confirmation bias, selection bias, negativity bias, recency bias, gender bias, optimism bias, etc. These biases are normal, but they are also dangerous. The most dangerous bias we face is our innate privileging of the past. We elevate the past and give it too much importance. Our lives are divided into three distinct states: what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen.

Our past isn't predictive, and neither does it begin a new chapter for us. The earlier we absorb and embrace this belief, the better for us.”

“There's no limit to what we can achieve as long as we set our minds to it. The most outstanding leaders in the world are those who know when to take charge and when to step back. We must learn to lead ourselves and influence our lives positively. It's what it takes.”
