Challenge

 

I was sure I knew that subject by heart.

I thought I had no need to review my books once more, but when my brain kept struggling to find the answers to that question, I realised that I needed to study the lesson once more.

As a child I always hated exams, specially surprise tests.

But after finishing school, I dreaded Life’s tests.

When an unexpected situation forced me to dust off my knowledge without previous planning, I got scared and many times that lead me to failure. Continue reading

What comes next…

 

I remember when I used to get very nervous when things got difficult and I was not able to see the end of the tunnel.  When life´s colours were of the darkest nature and everything seemed to be doomed to failure. I felt lost and terrified.

It took me years of getting up and falling again, to try and fail and of learning and relearning the same lessons again and again, to realise that what comes next might not be as bad/terrible as it seems at first.

I used to give up as soon as things got difficult, as soon as I could not see the end of the road and when people told me that I was a lost case with no hope whatsoever.  That is, I gave up constantly.

But one day you get tired of listening to what the others try to put into your mind, you stop believing and living the life others are trying to impose you and then you begin to shine with your own true colours. Continue reading

Follow your heart

I was surprised to see her once more. Years had passed and it was evident to the eyes, we were not the same.

I guess she thought the same about me, but besides the natural changes time inflict upon us, there was something else I couldn´t define in her.

“What is wrong?” I asked her.

“I guess everything is wrong. No, actually I am wrong” She said after a long pause.

I waited patiently until she was able to talk again. Continue reading

Your team

I have been reading everywhere about the importance to choose the people you surround yourself with. And I am not talking only about your work team, but the people you spend more time with in your everyday life.

They say we become what we eat, but we become too a little like those who surround us, human beings are imitation creatures, so we end up implementing customs, habits, ideas, concepts, movements, and many other things almost without noticing it.

Have you noticed when friends of yours share expressions, taste, manners, slang and some other characteristics that they didn’t showed before, and after sometime of “hanging out” with mutual friends or acquaintances, they begin to behave in similar ways. Continue reading

I won’t fail this time either.

“Yes, I have made a lot of mistakes, I have taken very bad decisions and I am still trying to figure out how to set things right in many aspects of my life, but I don’t think I have failed. I did everything I could in the way I thought it was right, I tried my best to do the things in the only way I knew and yes, I know, I have harmed people I love at times, I have even harmed people I don’t know directly but all I can say is that I didn’t do anything on purpose. I never meant to do anything wrong to anyone in anyway.” I told my friend while we walked in the park. Continue reading

This Now

Whatever you are experiencing right now is a unique moment in this local reality. There are too many elements that make this moment totally unique and besides those “invisible elements”, those elements we have no access to and/or we cannot really understand. I am sure you can find a lot of “evident” elements that makes your here and now a unique coordinate in this space-time universe. Continue reading

Stop it! You don’t have to be strong all the time

“Just keep going”, “You have to be strong”, “Keep your head up”, “Don’t be afraid”, “Don’t worry, be happy” and many other expressions are said very lightly by everyone when the problem is on someone else’s shoulders.

But when they have to deal with difficult times the same people who told you that in the past, get mad at you when you use the same clichés on them.

Just remember we are all humans and it is unnatural not to get worried, angry, sad, and anxious, etc. The real master is not the one who is all the time in control of his/her emotions and feelings, but the one who allows them to flow through his/her system and returns to his/her ideal frequency at a natural pace.

This is your way to success

When you see the photos people share in the “social networks” you will usually see good things, nice new cars, wonderful vacations and family life, everybody smiling and having a wonderful time.

A recent study discovered that “social networks” are causing bad depression cases on some people.  Since they look at the “exciting life” others are enjoying while they are bored at home watching their screens, wishing they were living the “wonderful life” the others seem to live.  Continue reading

Your treasure

There are just too much information on the media about what we need to know for having an abundant life, a prosperous business, the healthiest body and a wonderful love life among other things.

Most of that info addresses a full gamma of “new knowledge” that has been created to adapt it to our modern circumstances and if you look around carefully you can find very interesting material out there.

After some centuries of “educating” humanity to see themselves as “sinners”, “worthless”, “undeserving” and other niceties brought to us thanks to most religions around the world, it still surprises me that “formal” education at universities and colleges around the world do not make room for the most important of all subjects and tools for success and advancement for every human being.
