Thomas Edison: I have not failed

Why I Love to Fail

Failure can be one of the scariest things in life.

We create a plan, work really hard to achieve it, and in the end sometimes find ourselves with nothing left to show but sweat and maybe a few tears. This is fine. In fact, this is a wonderful process that we can learn from.

Why Personal Development is the Best Investment You’ll Ever Make

I’m a strong believer that personal development is the best investment you could ever make.

The reason is really simple.

Improving yourself proactively, working on your awareness, improving your skills and knowledge about how you can get to the edge of your potential, all of that is an investment into the greatest asset you’ll always have: Yourself.

3 Ways to Live a Life of No Regrets

I recently turned 30. Changing the first digit in your age is one of those moments when you’re inclined to really think about the way you’ve lived your life so far and the way you want to live it from that point onward. At least it was for me.
