It’s how you perceive who you are, how you view others, and how you experience the world. It’s what you rely upon to feel happy, fulfilled, and emotionally stable. It’s our greatest tool toward a fulfilling life and yet, we rarely spend any time to look after it…read full article

That one word you’ve undoubtably heard over and over  your entire life as to what you’re suppose to be. “Just be confident.” As if there’s a confidence switch in your brain that you can just voluntarily turn on when you feel like it. Confidence, the word that’s suppose to help you accomplish so much, yet often just hearing the word causes you to feel smaller and usually makes you realize your lack of it…read full article

My Interview With The Professional Wingman Today I got to sit down and chat with LA’s Thomas Edwards, creator of “The Professional Wingman.” I met Thomas months back at a entrepreneur networking party in NY. Once he told me what he does, I wanted to know all about it. He was nice enough to take me under his wing for the night, show me his world, and methods for becoming a better socializer and how attract the person you want. I managed to track him down to follow up and find out what the Professional Wingman is all about…listen to the full interview

Everything in your life happens from your perspective. Everything happens from your point of view, in front of you, behind you, next to you. Everything that is experienced is through your eyes, what you see, experience, your thoughts and interpretations, your senses, your mind. There is no experience that you have had that you weren’t the complete center of…read full article

The Three Areas In Life Where You Should Never Settle For Less We live in a time where we are given more freedoms and choices then any other point in history.

What areas in life will you settle for less then best or even average and what won’t you settle for?…read full article

41 Hours of Perpetual Hell Not a minute of sleep, sitting outside, temp in the 30s, with soaking wet clothes, throwing up, shaking, heartbroken, depressed, a WWII train, a psychotic screaming German woman, pleading not to get thrown off the train into the countryside of Serbia, scammed, robbed, lost, so fucking lost, 40lbs on my back, phone dead, no one spoke english, no where to sleep, it’s the dead of night, and I’m alone, very alone. It felt like I was living in a perpetual hell. And it was one the greatest things that ever happened to me…read full article

travel-again

Why Travel Is NOT The Answer  7 months ago I quit my job. I wanted to escape. To get the hell away from all the stress, the day to day routines, away from my problems. My anxiety was through the roof, I was stressed, depressed, and tired of this lifestyle. I dreamed of this grand escape. The chance to escape all my problems, live this carefree lifestyle of roaming the world, meeting new people, new experiences, adventures, and opportunities. And so I set out to travel. To escape. It wasn’t until months after it was over that I realized, although traveling was an incredible experience, it wasn’t the answer…read full article

Three Days In A Sensory Deprivation Tank  I was alone with my mind. A mind that creates everything. It creates what I see, feel, smell, touch, taste. It creates the world around me, the people, things, and a physical sense of self. It creates emotions, feelings, and problems. It creates “my” universe. But for a brief moment that universe did not exist. Just as it can create it, it can destroy it. There was no world, no people, no city, no time, not even me. There were no problems, emotions, feelings, senses…read full article

A Guide To NOT Punching People (And Maybe Even Liking Them)  Your daily problems, thoughts, issues, worries, and desires are all infinitely louder and seem more important then anything or anyone around you. This is how I used to suffer walking through the streets of NYC and how many people suffer everyday. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this was actually the cause of a lot of my anger and anxiety. And of course I didn’t realize it because I was too caught up in all the bullshit going on in my head. It wasn’t I met a Buddhism teacher who opened me up to world outside of my mind. And man, what a better world it is…read full article
