    In The Stories We Tell Ourselves, I argue that we’re all guilty of fabricating stories about the other people in our lives when we don’t have enough information about a given situation. For example, how many different stories have you devised after receiving a short but vague text message? If your friend suddenly texted you, “Call me ASAP,” what would you automatically think? Devoid of context—which includes your friend’s perspective, thoughts, and emotions—your options are nearly limitless. In fact, I believe we’re so adept at telling ourselves stories about other people that…
  • 12 Ways You Can Step It Up In Life To Rise Above Being Average

    This is how I define being normal: It is being the same as everyone else. This is a good thing as it means you're a rational person who tries his best in being happy and also doesn't bring harm to others. But here's the thing: Normal and average are two entirely different things. Yet, they constantly overlap one and another. Average isn't cool. It means accepting things as they should be and pretty much following the crowd, even if it's not good for you. I'll let my points do the explaining. Here are 12 ways you can step it up in life to rise above being average. 1) Thank customer service…

Sleep affects everything from learning and memory to metabolism and cardiovascular health, and a recent study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that a lack of sleep can even lead to permanent brain damage. But how much sleep do we actually need, and how can you tell if you’re getting enough of it? The right amount of sleep varies from person to person and depends on factors like age, genetics and lifestyle.

    When it comes to making money, there are two rules I live by. Lucky for me, I learned them both when I was 12. I suppose I was like any red blooded twelve-year-old boy—I dreamed of one day owning a Ferrari. I didn’t deck my bedroom walls with posters of movies, celebrities, athletes or outer space; I had four Ferrari posters—all cherry red. One day after school I walked into my house to see my dad’s mentor, business partner and former college football coach sitting at the kitchen table with my father.

    Most people want to show off. That’s natural. They want to create a certain self-image, which often, is only a cover, a mask. Many want to impress their friends, and strangers too. Do they succeed to do so, or they just get the opposite reaction? This depends on what they do.

So today I want to share a resource that I think will particularly appeal if you are a coach who uses visualisation, positive thinking, and gratitude in your own approach and work. “LivingMyDream” is a company who “creates products that embody the values of creative visualization, positive thinking, and gratitude .“ If you visit their site you will see that they have a store that includes a range “from sterling silver Vision Charms to Vision Board Kits and more,” They describes themselves as “here to support you on the path to living your…

  • You Have The Ideas. But How Do You Execute Them?

    Lauren Rains
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:45 am
    I’m currently studying themes around Action, Execution, and Prioritization. One of the books I’m reading in this study is Making Ideas Happen by Scott Belsky, the founder and CEO of Behance. According to the author execution is a skill that must be developed by building your organizational habits and harnessing the support of your colleagues. I’m still reading the book, but I wanted to share with you a few key points I’ve taken away thus far. I highly recommend this if you are someone who tends to be stuck in idea and brainstorm mode. There is extreme creative talent…
  • Is there a cap on love?

    Lauren Rains
    23 Oct 2014 | 5:10 pm
    There is no greater gift in this world than to give and receive love. This does not mean taking love, nor does it mean forfeiting it to someone attempting to steal it. Are you giving love to those around you, and those you interact with on a daily basis? Are you giving those that love your the opportunity to share that with you? Do you have walls up that prevent people from being a fulfilling part of your life? Are you pushing your comfort zones in order to be more open to giving and receiving love? By love I mean compassion, support, interest, acknowledgment, respect, and understanding.
  • How To Be A Book Lover and Still Be a Minimalist

    Lauren Rains
    23 Oct 2014 | 5:07 pm
    Saying goodbye to my beloved books was one of the most difficult steps on my journey into minimalism. One of life’s simplest pleasures is that of holding a book in your own two hands, the sound of turning each page, your finger lightly sliding across the smooth paper as you follow it with each sentence read. My question for you today is as follows: Is this nostalgia enough to stray you away from going minimalist on the way you read and collect books? It used to be for me. I has been two years since I’ve purchased a book whose pages are collected in a single binding. This was no…

    1. If you had a chance to paint a mural in a busy subway station where most people rush by on their way or staring at their phones, yet every now and again, it would catch someone’s eye and make them think, question, believe, smile, cry, feel – what would you paint on that mural? 2. If you were going to give a large audience one piece of life-influencing advice that hindsight has taught you, what would it be? 3. If you saw someone crying to themselves in a park, would you walk past them, or would you try to find some way to comfort them? 4. If a homeless man on the street…

My goals for this essay is to think BIG in terms of how I would answer this question, and then come up with SMALL ways I can get started on some of them now. After all, a big part of our life stories comes down to our habits, our rituals, and building blocks. According to productivity expert Scott Belsky, no one is born with the ability to drive creative…

    Michael Fletcher

    One of the many pasttimes I took up during the last two years of my transformation has been teaching myself to play the guitar. I am no John Mayer but I think I’ve established a fair degree of proficiency considering the fact that I’ve had very little time to dedicate to my instrument. While I learnt to play the guitar the guitar also taught me some lessons about life. So here are some life lessons from guitarists. There is no substitute for practice. You need to put the hours in building up those calluses hitting the wrong strings. Until you have you’ll never gain mastery of your…

    I’ve spent the last 4 years learning Wing Tsun and more recently Krav Maga too. What’s great about martial arts? Everything about it resonates with me. From the more prescriptive traditional martial arts to the canabilistic Krav Maga and Mixed martial arts of the present. The more you learn the more there is to learn.

    Sometimes we find ourselves re-evaluating our lives, our work, and even our legacies. Often we do this when we’re feeling particularly vulnerable or uncertain about the future. We also do it when we reach milestones in our lives, for example when we turn twenty, thirty, and forty. We do it one year after graduating from university or a couple of years after starting a new business. We do it after big life events such as the breakup of a relationship or the death of a loved one. We begin to compare ourselves with those around us and inevitably find ourselves wanting. Other people are…
  • Why Multipotentialites Make the Best Artists

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    This is a guest post by Amy Ng. I frown whenever I hear people say they don’t know how to draw because I know that they canThey drew when they were little and, just like riding a bike, you never forget how to do it. But here’s what I find interesting. You don’t tell people you don’t know how to ride a bike even though you haven’t been on one in ages. Riding a bike sticks and it’s simple. Easy. Fool-proof. The goal is to not fall down. And, by golly, if that’s the measurement of success for riding a bike, about 99% of the population can succeed at…

I’ve been “out” as a multi-project person for well over a decade and most of my friends are used to asking and hearing about my myriads of projects.

    Talk to any multipotentialite and you’ll find a serial entrepreneur lurking pretty close to the surface. When you have so many interests, running your own business is a great way to utilise your multi-talentedness. As an entrepreneur, you get to explore all kinds of stuff that you rarely have the freedom to try out as an employee. Could you imagine offering the same service day-in, day-out for the next twenty years? Nah, way too boring. Both the Renaissance Business and the portfolio career models enable multipotentialites to shift their focuses, so they that work in tandem with…

  • WARNING: Don’t Overanalyze Procrastination

    Stephen Guise
    27 Oct 2014 | 1:42 pm
    The hardest problem to try to solve is one that doesn’t actually exist. Sometimes when I’ve been procrastinating, I’ve assumed that there’s some huge problem that’s preventing me from working. Shortly after, I find myself focused on finding this problem: Am I too tired? Are my motivation and/or willpower low? Am I lost on my project and thus avoiding it? Am I giving in too easily to distractions? Am I addicted to them? When I assume that there is a problem preventing me from working right now, I’ll try to solve it. This actually brings me one step…
  • Direction Is Everything

    Stephen Guise
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:41 am
    Small steps create exceptional results despite seeming meaningless. Do you know their secret of success? They enable you to effortlessly change your direction. People most often look at the size of their actions (or intended actions), but the direction you’re currently headed in is far more important than that—so much so that if you only thought about your direction and pivoted when necessary, you’d do very well in life. When you’re on the couch watching TV, you’re pointed towards more mindless relaxation. When you’re lying in bed, you’re pointed toward…
  • Choose “Active Relaxation” Over Stressful Working

    Stephen Guise
    6 Oct 2014 | 2:33 pm
    Relaxation generates productivity, and I don’t just mean that in a “we need to take breaks to be productive” way. A calm, relaxed mind enhances performance while working. I call this productive form of it “active relaxation.” Relaxation and stress are counter-forces; opposites on the same spectrum. So one way to see how relaxation affects productivity is to see how stress affects it, and that’s something we already know… The more stressed you are, the worse you will perform. Increased stress on your mind drains your work stamina and hurts your…

    This is today, and it’s beautiful. Tomorrow is gross. (photo by szeke) I used to see tomorrow as my friend. If I had a bad day, there was always tomorrow’s fresh start to save me. If I wasn’t productive today, I could just get a little bit more done tomorrow. Whenever today wasn’t perfect, tomorrow still had the possibility. Anything could happen tomorrow! But as time went on, I saw the red flags. I realized that tomorrow is like a friend who always stabs you in the back, but you don’t notice because you assume a friend wouldn’t do that to you. Well,…

Many of us, myself included, let fear control our behavior more than it should. This is not news to any of you, but have you thought much about the role of permission in that?

During my competition career, I was one of the few competitors who competed in different martial arts styles including Chinese styles known as ‘soft styles’ because of the more flowing techniques compared to the more linear ones in ‘hard styles’ like karate and tae kwon do.   A significant…

The camcorder was sort of facing the direction of the sunshine at that time so there was an effect of a silhouette on my body.  The video footage from this distance was not used at all for the first bo staff video.  So this second video along with a different music sound track will give my karate weapons bo staff form a slightly…

I also wanted to do such a new video in a nice location.  My past video of my bo staff…

    I just found one of my older articles: and read it through briefly and it was interesting to see how much my life has changed since I wrote the article. When we truly have realized the I AM as being God and that we are that, then our whole world opens up to all kinds of possibilities that was not apparent before and seemingly not available to us before. It has been, and still is, an amazing journey this thing called Life, it never ceases to surprise me and it just gets better and better. So after have gone through all the shedding…

    Who knew that I would be fasting! It’s funny how life moves sometimes. It’s true that we can never know its ways and how things will unfold – our only responsibility is to state what we desire and then stay true to the Truth within us that always leads our way. This transition happened almost overnight when I decided that I would change my morning rituals. I decided that instead of coffee and emails in the morning I would go out jogging.  It’s wonderful to go out when the sun is rising and there’s almost no other people outside yet and there’s the beautiful…

    7 Oct 2014 | 2:32 am
    Whatever challenges we might be facing in life is not who we are. We have the power to transform ourselves the moment we become aware of the meaning we choose to give to our circumstances in life. Any kind of endings, like for example a divorce, bankruptcy, health problems etc, whatever it might be, we also have to remember that in the circumstances there’s also a powerful new beginning. In the new beginning, however it looks, there’s space for new intentions and new possibilities that would not have been visible for us when we looked at the world from where we were before.

    Hand Analysis and Understanding Ourselves Understanding ourselves is probably one of the most important things we can do in our lives.  A while ago I stumbled on Hand Analysis through Leanne Chesser‘s blog. Reading her posts sparked my curiosity.  I like to express my sincere appreciation to Leanne for taking the time to prepare this very comprehensive analysis and help to understanding myself. Richard Unger has developed Hand Analysis, a scientific approach to analysing finger- and handprints, to provide a way to know ourselves more. Some of the aspects a Hand Analysis covers are:…

    Turning self-defeating Beliefs into Empowering Questions Becoming aware of our thoughts and beliefs can help us change them. On page 82 in the book ‘Super Brain’ by Dr. Deepak Chopra & Rudolph E. Tanzi self defeating beliefs are referred to as software programs, but “they are even more pernicious since they dig in deeper with every repetition.” The book lists 6 beliefs and I have turned some of the suggestions to turn these around into questions. 1. It’s all my fault Why do I focus on a solution? Why is fault finding pointless? 2. I am not good enough Why am…

One of the aspects of the games that appealed to me was that it builds resilience in four areas: mental, emotional, physical and social.

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:37 am
    Have you heard of the term “incubation period”? Medical definition aside, an incubation period refers to the period which an embryo develops within an egg, to the point the egg hatches. Different types of eggs have different incubation periods. With the most common egg, the chicken egg, a 21-day incubation period (give or take a few days) is needed, assuming incubation conditions are met (right temperature, right humidity, and timely turning of egg). Crack a fertilized chicken egg before it completes its 21-day incubation, and you will be greeted with a gory mess as you destroy…
  • How Long Would You Spend to Teach Your (Future) Baby to Walk, Before Giving Up?

    15 Oct 2014 | 9:22 am
    Have you ever taught a baby how to walk? According to BabyCenter, most babies take their first steps between 9 and 12 months old and walk by the time they’re 14 or 15 months old. Some babies take longer, walking only when they’re 17 months old, though it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with them — it’s simply different babies needing different time for development. Now, imagine you’ve a baby (for those of you who are already parents, no imagining needed here), and it’s now 9 months old — in its learning-to-walk phase. (For…

When I was a kid, around 10, my female cousin (around the same age) and I would sleep together. On one such occasion, her hand accidentally touched my thigh and felt something bulging. She asked me what it was. In my child-like, innocent enthusiasm I opened my shorts and she saw my erect p****. She got excited and started rocking it, saying that she had now seen my ‘shame-shame’. Later, in the same excitement, she told all this to…

    Have you ever wondered about the origins of modern humans? Where did we come from, how did we originate and what was this “missing link” element all about anyway? Somewhere back in the early 2000’s my curiosity got the better of me. Many of you already know that I have read well over 700 books beginning around 1997. I mainly read personal development books back then because that was what I was in to. After that I read a lot about religion and spirituality and channeled messages like Abraham-Hicks, The Seth Material and A Course in Miracles. From there I delved into metaphysical topics…

    On February 19th 2013, the dead body of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old student from Vancouver, Canada was found at the bottom of the Cecil Hotel’s cistern located on the roof. The L.A.

The first time I ever went to Monster Mania Con was in 2005 when both Sid Haig from A House of a Thousand Corpses and Bruce Campbell from The Evil Dead were both present. I can’t even recall how I stumbled upon Monster Mania Con, but the first time I went, back in 2005, left a lasting impression on me. It was surreal to be in a room full of dozens of my all-time favorite horror movie icons. So much so that I make sure that I go every year.

    Procrastination. It stands in the way to your success. But you are not alone. For years I thought that systems and creativity don’t go hand in hand. I was so wrong. Without system, without routine, you won’t get much done.  It wasn’t logical and it didn’t make any sense, but now I know that there is an enormous power. Anything and everything can be broken down into a few small steps. Actually, rather it must be. In 2011, John Maxwell showed me his thinking chair (a place where he thinks, reflects and put ideas together for his books). At that time I though, what a…

    The Code of Extraordinary Change

  • Get Off Your Butt And Get Some Focus

    Steve Errey
    29 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    A human being without action isn’t really a human being at all. They might look like one and walk like one, they might even talk like one. But they’re not really alive. Unfortunately, inaction is natural. We’re wired to stay in the place we feel safe and comfortable. But inaction leads to procrastination and atrophy, and this cycle of safety, comfort, procrastination and atrophy continues. Until, that is, it’s interrupted by something. An intention is a good start, but is pointless without following through. An idea is amazing, but valueless unless it’s explored.

Which tells me a couple of things. First, people are afraid to be the first to speak up or to admit to a lack of…

    Live-in relationships are not a new concept anymore. Many countries have made a change in their laws according to situations that arise in live-in relationships. It is a general expectation that eventually, live-in relationships will turn into marriage, and thinking so, is not generally wrong. Many relationships do turn into marriage. There are some good and bad effects of cohabitation before marriage. Cons: The number one negative effect that cohabitation can have on a marriage is divorce.

To make an intimate relation more special, equal participation of the partners is required. However, to play the equal roles a man should know his beloved’s requirements and the woman should know how to satisfy her man to the fullest because the sex needs of a woman are different from that of a man. It is of paramount importance that a couple indulges in “sex-talks”…

    In July of 2011 I hit the lowest point of my life. I was 170 pounds overweight, I was at a job I absolutely hated, and I lived in a place that made me worried about my family’s safety. Oh yeah, I owed over $100,000 to the IRS (almost forgot about that one).One day that July I was sitting on the couch crying as everything came crashing down on my head at the same time. The straw that broke the camels back was my wife and I separating. Everyday we fought about everything because of all the problems I brought into our lives. I sat there that day with the TV on not really thinking about what I…

    As I turned the final corner I could feel myself breaking up… breaking up in tears that is. It was an amazing feeling. I had dreamt of this moment for a while now.There was still about 500 metres to run and I now had a tunnel of spectators cheering me on from both sides. This is it, I thought. The moment I had been waiting for.My legs were screaming in agony and my mind was slightly dazed but extremely focused on the goal that was now in sight. All I wanted to do was walk but I couldn’t walk now… not now… not after 42km of pain and agony and with only 500 metres to go.I continued…

    One of my biggest struggles in my day-to-day life is managing my priorities. And by that, I mean I take stuff wayyyy too seriously.Car bill due? I’m thinking about it all day. Carpet to vacuum? Also on my mental to-do list.Some people think that keeping these kinds of daily priorities in your mind is an act of mature responsibility. I know I used to.But, more recently, I’ve been made aware of just how limiting that kind of prioritization can be. Not just to your mental health and your happiness, but it can limit the happiness of important people in your life.If you spend all your time…

Many of the players in the locker room after the win, touched base on the fact they have such a family like atmosphere in the dressing room, on the road and out on the diamond pitch itself. Claiming the team is very close knit, having each others back no matter what, and just having fun.

    Sometimes people make light of the idea that each of us is a “special snowflake,” but guess what? It’s true. There is no one else exactly like you in the universe, and there’s no one else exactly like me either. We each have a unique way of doing things and a form of expression that no one else has. This uniqueness provides each of us with a rare and priceless opportunity to provide a unique gift to the world. Even when we do work that is similar to others’, our presentation and expression is guaranteed to be different. The Dagara tribe in Africa understands this concept well.

If you are striving to do new things or pushing your boundaries, it can be difficult to stay confident, even if you’re usually a confident person. Unfortunately, confidence doesn’t just show up at your door one day, even though you may wish it would. In fact, confidence comes from trying new things, overcoming fear, and reaching for your dreams.

    A week ago I got married (more on that later…and pictures to come!). I’ve already soaked up some golden nuggets from this shiny happy experience (many more than I anticipated), but one of the biggest things I’ve taken from it is the importance of consciously creating space for the big things in your life. Lets face it. Marriage is a BIG THING. You only do it once (well that’s the idea anyway). So it’s crucial that you’re 100% present and in the moment. The thing is – it’s actually the hardest time in your life to be present because there is SO MUCH GOING ON. Like most big…

    You often hear that failures are the building blocks to achievement and that the lessons you learn from these are the laying foundation to appreciating the successes you will attain in life. After all, our most fulfilling successes are best relished after overcoming disappointments. Inevitably, failure is a part of life that all of us have to deal with. It is a matter of knowing to stand up once again after stumbling or faltering. Time and time again, we are reminded to “Try and try until you succeed.” We have to come to the realization and terms that we should never be embarrassed of our…

Once you tap the wonders of this state, it greatly heightens your sense of awareness, increase your empathy for others and immensely enhances your clarity of thought. Not only that, the subconscious allows you to tap into your history and understand the root of your fears and phobias.

You beat yourself up tired with piles of work documents, home issues and personal concerns that leave you mentally, emotionally and physically exhausted to enjoy the pleasures in life. Too often than not, you even start to lose focus and unable to find your way to your goals and aspirations. This leaves you to be even more stressed out – now that is really stressful!

Get ten to twenty dollars in single dollar bills (or equivalent currency). Try to get the crispest freshest ones, mostly because they just feel cool and smell amazing. Now, that you have your stack or roll, go on about your day but be wary that each time…
