To be a giver

You cannot pour from an empty cup. Deeply satisfying your needs naturally enables you to extend your hand to others. By doing so, your giving is genuine not conditional. It is out of a true will not a tit for tat.

Peer pressure

Conforming with the group and following its rules. This can be positive or negative. If we take religions, political parties, universities, companies, etc, the pressure is always exerted on the nonconformists to adhere to the rules or get alienated. We are programmed and conditioned to conform. Non-conforming, venturing into something new and challenging the established […]

Why is discovering life purpose so important?

All of us have been conditioned and influenced by our parents, friends, schools, teachers, colleagues and the whole society. Therefore, most of us have been pressured to pursue certain things in life which probably did not add any satisfaction and value to our lives. The power of finding purpose is in refocusing, realigning and fulfilling […]

Great people are not born great.

Great people usually get catalysed, inspired, or challenged by certain circumstances and experiences. They get influenced or inspired by people around them from family, friends, teachers, or colleagues. The combination of the challenges, disappointments, dreams, failures, and successes that people experience in their lives shapes who they truly are.

Burn the ships. We win-or we perish!

I love to share this story from Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich. The point is that plan B or C always makes people unenergized enough to win. People often resort to their comfort zones when they face problems on the way. Cutting all roads to retreat is essential to success. “A long while […]

Follower or supporter

If someone were to tell you that you are a great follower or supporter. Which word would make you feel more comfortable? The language of social media has subconsciously become part of people’s mindsets. Take for example, the word follower, all social media platforms use with no exception. They have created such words and encouraged […]

Just ink and paper

The illiteracy rate among people holding associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees is alarmingly shocking. Illiteracy does not only mean the inability to read or write. It is the inability to think. Most students are the end-product of a global educational system that, in its very structure, designed to produce conformists who are pre-programmed to […]

Sophisticated minds are scarce.

Just a handy hint at the beginning on the meaning of sophisticated minds, people who possess creative, challenging, and disruptive mindsets. Non-conformists. Whether they are journalists, doctors, writers, etc regardless of the profession, most people usually conform to the norms, policy, and strategic direction of their organizations. Deviating from the general line threatens jobs and […]

The metric is deliberately rigged.

The standard of measurement is the number of followers and likes. This is how people on social media measure their success and fame. Social media machines have controlled people by manipulative metrics. Psychological manipulation is deviously used to change people’s behaviour. Social media trigger the chemicals in the brain which are responsible for gratification, reward, […]

Courage and knowledge

They can create miracles if utilized correctly. A very knowledgeable person who lacks courage will not go far. A scared leader will inspire no one. He or she will stay invisible. Knowledge is important, but courage is crucial. Courage without knowledge leads to unintended consequences. Courage and knowledge are twins and they are essential to […]
