I would like to share with you an amazing video I have come across a few days ago. I’ve known Anthony Robbins and his teachings for quite a long time now, but this particular interview shook me completely. The famous coach interviews two self-made multimillionaires, who have earned their fortunes working online. In the video, they all brainstorm the reasons and differences between people who succeed hugely and those, who struggle for years to make a dime. Continue reading
Let it be
Do you ever feel as if your life was a struggle? That you constantly fight against the current and all your plans seem to shutter for reasons independent from you? Well, you’re not alone there. In life, I often found myself fighting for love, money, jobs, friendships, places… However, what I’ve found is that sometimes it’s better to just let it be and let things go. We are all a part of the universe and the universe knows what’s best for us. At a particular moment, it might seem that everything is against us, but in fact it’s never so. It’s just that we might need time to see the true reasons for certain phenomenons happening in our lives. Continue reading
What to do when your life sucks
Today, while having my gym session, I was thinking how way too often I hear people around me saying things like ‘I’m so fat’, ‘My life sucks’, ‘I never have money for anything’, ‘People don’t like me’, ‘Old ladies and teenagers have a better sex life than me’, ‘I can’t change’, ‘It’s too difficult’, ‘I hate my job’ and so on and so on. For me, all of these statements fall into one huge category called ‘complaining’. Seriously people, I don’t mean to offend anyone but it seems that somehow we have become a generation which expects a lot and yet is not particularly willing to put much effort in it. We want things to happen to us just like that, for free. The thing is, it doesn’t work this way. If you want to change something, then stop complaining and do something about it. Continue reading
What if… there is no point?
Recently I have come across a couple of recordings that have influenced my life philosophy significantly. I have been fascinated by the zen teachings for quite some time and it was natural for me to explore what Alan Watts, the great speaker and philosopher, interested in this topic, had to say. Continue reading
You can make excuses or you can make it happen
Lately I have been thinking about the dynamics that determine the direction of our lives. And analysing my own life, it became pretty obvious – in the end the times when I actively took action instead of waiting around for something to happen, account for the biggest and most positive breakthroughs. Continue reading
F**k it and set yourself free
Some time ago I came across a really simple but extremely powerful idea for life philosophy. I have been searching for some inspiring books in the psychological books section and what caught my eye was the title of a little black book, which read: ‘F**k it’. At the first sight, the book seemed more entertaining than practical. It was fun to read all those tips about saying f**k it and for instance singing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ out loud in public or doing plenty of other random things that were in the end supposed to make one feel free. The funny thing is that now as I look back, the once completely abstract idea has started to make more and more sense in my life. Continue reading
What would the wise owl do?
During my spring break I went back to Poland to celebrate Easter with my family. I was also hosting some friends from Switzerland (where I’m living at the moment) and wanted to show them some places in my country of origin. Naturally, I took them to a beautiful little town – Kazimierz Dolny, which is really close to my home town. As we were walking along the river and enjoying the stunning views, I noticed a really interesting graffiti on the wall beside. Surrounded by all the ugly and nonsense scribbles, there were two identical owls with the following words underneath: Continue reading
Recently, I’ve watched a really interesting video which made me think about the ways I could change my life by changing my behavior. It was a talk on vulnerability made by a researcher – Brene Brown. She introduces a fascinating concept of vulnerability being a positive thing. Continue reading
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened – Dr. Seuss
When I look out the window on the gloomy autumn days, I often catch myself getting melancholic and sad. There’s just something depressing about the rain and the lack of sunshine. However, luckily there are some ways that can instantly cheer up even the most prone to getting depressed souls.
