Follow Your Curiosity

Curiosity helps to fuel our imagination. 

  • When we ask questions of others, we can find out important information to help us solve problems, open new doors and form connections. 
  • When we ask questions of ourselves, we can shake up our beliefs, reveal our innermost desires and make positive change.

Well being

#1 Acknowledge Jealousy

“It is not greed that drives the world, but envy.

The first step to deal with an uncomfortable feeling is acceptance.

  • If you ever catch yourself feeling those burning envious feelings, say “I’m <your name here>, and I get jealous.”
  • But more crucially, also say: “But it’s okay to feel jealous. It’s only human. And here’s what I’m going to do about it.”
Curiositá – Insatiable Curiosity and Thirst for Learning

We all have an innate sense of curiosity that we can cultivate. It starts with asking questions. The most brilliant minds spend their entire lives asking questions about confounding issues. Leonardo’s mission in life was a pursuit of truth and beauty, which led to his own inquisitiveness.

  • Try looking at things from various angles, and don’t take "yes" for an answer.
  • At the same time, take time off occasionally to relax and refresh your perspective.
The Three Stoic Disciplines

A good character cannot be developed without a proper understanding and implementation of all three Stoic disciplines, which are:

  1. The discipline of desire (also referred to as Stoic acceptance)
  2. The discipline of action (known also as Stoic philanthropy, in the sense of concern for others)
  3. The discipline of assent (or Stoic mindfulness) 
  • Speak with integrity.
  • Say only what you mean.
  • Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.
  • Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
Think of yourself as an eternal student to stay humble.

Think of yourself like many of the ancient Stoics did: An eternal student of life, dedicated to learning as long as you live. This keeps you humble and encourages you to learn from the best in your field.

However, it pays to look both up and down the chain: take some time to mentor and teach others. Going back to beginners and helping them exposes you to the full spectrum of skill levels and is another way to restrain your ego.


The more intelligent you are, the more likely you are to find yourself procrastinating. If you’re someone with a high-intelligence, you’re able to see the repercussions of any task, you realise that it might be boring or difficult, therefore, you put it off for something that might be more stimulating.

So it’s the over-thinking of any task that leads us to procrastinate, if only we could all just begin work on a task without conceptualising what it will entail.

A Quick Fix

There are a few tricks that can give you an immediate confidence boost in the short term.

  • Picture your success when you're beginning a difficult task.
  • Listening to music with deep bass can promote feelings of power.
  • You can even strike a powerful pose or give yourself a pep talk.
The Monologue Form

Most people naturally think in monologue form.

One voice jumps around from thought to thought to thought.

For example, it might go: "What should I have for lunch, what did I eat yesterday, I can’t believe yesterday went by so fast, time is weird, I wonder what time feels like at the speed of light."

Read a lot and read widely.

Exposing yourself to unique points of view is a good way to spark constant curiosity and to stay open-minded.

Well-read people understand that there are always multiple ways to look at a problem and multiple lenses with which to view the world.
