Self care isn’t selfish

Self care isn’t a fad, it’s a necessary habit. It’s a mindset that will help you to do more not just for yourself, but for others too. Often self care is thought is as a selfish attitude. But nothing could be further from the truth. Looking after yourself does not make you a selfish person. […]

What is the point of life?

What is the point of life? Self awareness and fulfillment? Taking care of ourselves? But they can’t be the point of life, and I will elaborate why below. Self care, self love, self awareness, etc are all important because at the end of the day if you don’t take care of yourself you will be […]

Passive helping streams

Have you heard of passive income streams? The idea with them is that you create income streams that continue to generate income from work you do once. It’s a great strategy, one that I applied to my passion for helping people. I have a few passive streams for helping people. They continue to help people […]

What being powerful is not about

Being powerful isn’t about being better than others. Or talking down to people. Or treating people badly. People who are truly powerful are people who are generous, kind and good.

Cycle of good

Being good to others is a state of mind. It’s a habit that can be developed and nurtured, like any other habit. When you do good things for others without any expectations, you create a virtuous cycle. The other person feels good. You feel good. And so on. But it doesn’t just stop there. The […]

For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness

For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness. I read that somewhere. And it really made me think. It makes a lot of sense. Anger is a counterproductive emotion. Most of the time anyway. The majority of the things that make us angry are really not worth losing our peace of […]
