Why are we interested in personal development? It's because we want to improve ourselves. We want to be the best we can be and live fully, right? But that's not the real reason. Why would you want to improve yourself if there wouldn't be a greater promise connected to...
Ok I decided to open up a new category here called "Ask Myrko". This is where you can send me your questions and every Thursday I will pick one that I think is interesting for most people and answer it. I already got hundreds from you (from those of you who signed up...
Are you feeling jaded?
Like the life you have worked so hard to create is not actually what you thought it was? You’ve worked really hard to achieve that place called success but now you are there it all feels rather empty and meaningless?
You’re not alone.
Do you want to escape 9 to 5, but you don’t know how to make it happen?
In early 2013 I decided that I’m not going to waste my life as a walking dead banker. I’d had enough.
I knew from day one that I don’t fit the banking environment. But it took me some time until I was ready to cut the crap. I needed to figure out first how to get a business running while working in my 9 to 5 job.
Here’s what I’ve learnt!
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.
