You do not need to “share” all your experiences with the rest of the world.

Most of the things we really enjoy are things we cannot punt into words.

I know nowadays it is more important for many people to upload photos of their last trip to their social networks than taking the time to enjoy the moment for themselves.

The other day I was talking with a friend who told me that he had not taken any videos or photographs of his trip because I felt he lost a lot of time taking the photo instead of filling his mind and soul with that moment.   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

Your worth 

She saw me walking on the street and greeted me very effusively. “I wanted to so much to see you! I finally finished your book and I loved it! I am going to read it again!”

“But the problem is that I want to be able to do the things you talk about in the book, but I don’t think is as easy as it sounds” She complained.

Then, Why not?

Every time I start a new adventure in my life, one of the main forces that help me to take the first step is, my own motivation, my intention to accomplish something specific. Without that powerful “force” I would abandon the journey at the first obstacle.

Sometimes the hardest part is to gather enough strength to start, to decide to take the first step. We begin questioning everything: Am I good enough? Is this worth doing? What if I fail? What if this isn’t good enough? What if the others laugh at me? Continue reading

What are you leaving behind?

Probably you haven’t considered yet to leave some kind of inheritance once you leave this world.  And I am not talking about money or properties, you may leave some of those behind but believe me, rarely people will remember you and feel grateful to you because of them. I have seen many friends who received good inheritances and when asked about them, they rarely are grateful or remember the relative who left them the goods in their everyday life. Continue reading
