One of the most satisfying thing to do is to live your life in harmony with your personal values. Even if you don’t think about your values when you do what you do for a living, you have this inner drive to express your values with it.
Are you looking to get motivated again to get your ohh so important goal done? But somehow it feels so difficult to get your butt up to at least just one tiny little step forward, right?
It’s just not happening…
And how can you fix this and get your motivation up when you need it? Like… right now?
Today I want to share a very simple, yet very critical time-management skill that usually is underestimated.
But not having this skill can seriously sabotage your best efforts to get things done and to move towards your goals in life.
The skill I’m talking about is to say no — primarily in your mind — to everything that is not what you really want.
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.
However, I’m going to be realistic and just say that failure does not feel like a wonderful process by any means. It is often painful and can damage our egos. But it gives us something to learn from.
In this article I’m going to explain my mindset on failure and how you can start feeling great even when you fail.
Have you ever been immersed within a dream, when you realise that you’re dreaming? Have you ever felt able to control your actions or the events within a dream? Many people will have experienced this on the odd occasion at random, but it is also possible to learn to do it on a regular basis.
Emma Nutter gives us the 3 most effective techniques to get into this state of lucid dreaming…
In 13th century Scotland there was a freedom fighter named William Wallace.
In a time when most people in Scotland were willing to settle, Wallace wanted more for himself and for his people. Getting there was something that probably seemed impossible, to win freedom from a ruthless king probably seemed insurmountable.
Read in this inspiring post from Kimanzi Constable, how he turned his life around and stopped to settle for something that was below his real potential.
There is no doubt that what Richard Branson learned when he just started off selling budgies as a business transferred over to his other mega successes.
Life is like a spider-web, everything is connected in some way or another.

I will exercise regularly.
I will wake up early.
I will lose that weight.
I will eat more healthy.
How many times have you started something like this only to realise that you never finish doing it? How many times have you tried to eat more greens only to fall back to having none at all? Or perhaps start exercising more only to stop three weeks into the program?
But why is it so difficult to make a new habit stick?
Sometimes in life we feel weak, overwhelmed and out of control of what is happening around—and even more importantly—inside us. There are demands everywhere begging for our attention.
I personally develop the tendency to ignore things in order to keep at least a little control over what is my primary focus. But ignorance is always a poor master.
So I urge you not to give up on your highest expectations! Don’t lower your standards and accept a life that is not truly satisfying you. Don’t accept bad compromises. Don’t accept mediocrity.
Your mindset is at the core of how you see your reality and yourself in it. Beliefs are one of the defining parts of your mindset. In this video you are going to find 2 very effective ways—namely the “But-Exercise” and the “Because-Exercise”—to identify limiting beliefs you might have. Then, we will go on and […]
In this post Ludvig Sunström is going to briefly outline his framework for learning – a method for getting these neurons to fire together more efficiently – and how he has been able to radically boost and speed up the amount of information that he can learn and memorize:

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.
I know from my own experience that this is true.
And I know it from the fact that almost every financially successful person started out with a transformation to become the person who is then able to achieve that kind of success.
