Change – A seed for growth

A wise man once said to me “The only constant in life is change.” It is a popular saying and it is entirely true. Very little, if anything in life, lasts forever. Over time, everything either seizes to exist or is no longer ‘there’. Depending on how you digest this thought will determine if it makes you anxious or excited. Unfortunately, the former happens … Read More Change – A seed for growth

The ‘R’ Word…

I was born and raised in a Christian household. I would go to Church almost every Sunday, I attended Christian schools, celebrated all Christian holidays…But the last 5 years or so I have moved into an agnostic state of mind. Not completely, I do topical research on other religions and belief systems because it intrigues me and I like applying principles from different religions; … Read More The ‘R’ Word…

My thoughts recently devoured me…this is how I stopped it.

I have had numerous people ask “Where are the podcasts? Your blogs?” Well, the past few weeks have been tough. I didn’t feel right giving advice while I didn’t have anything positive or constructive to say. I knew exactly what was going on – I had a negative mindset, which produced negative thoughts, which then snowballed into me not having any motivation and a … Read More My thoughts recently devoured me…this is how I stopped it.

This might be exactly what you need…

Typically, I’m not the ”go for a walk” kind of guy. I would prefer to be at a gym rather than out and about running or walking. I see so many people nowadays posting on social media going for hikes, finding new places and I never really understood it until last weekend – when I bothered to walk around my not-so-suburban backyard that has … Read More This might be exactly what you need…

No, you aren’t having a bad day. It could just be what is in your coffee!

I used to think I was lazy because I need at least 8 hours of sleep. If I got 9 in then I’m a perky man the next day! And, if I’m in bed and asleep before 11pm then I’ll be one of the happiest men alive the next day! But after hearing of other peoples sleep patterns, I began to feel as though … Read More No, you aren’t having a bad day. It could just be what is in your coffee!

A small, powerful piece of advice from a world renowned psychiatrist who survived Nazi camps

I just finished reading “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Dr Victor E. Frankl. It’s not just another man’s experience surviving a concentration camp. See, Dr Frankl was a successful and highly intelligent psychiatrist, throughout his time in the camps he was studying man while in their most primitive forms. Doesn’t this study become that much more credible?! That’s why I read this book like … Read More A small, powerful piece of advice from a world renowned psychiatrist who survived Nazi camps

Self Discovery Could Save Your Life

I have recently experienced a tragedy. For the period of a few days, it was nothing but hugs and tears. My life had stopped. Anything that I was supposed to do was rescheduled. The house became a mess because I wasn’t motivated to clean it. My mood would swing from happy and friendly to sad and hostile. I got extremely drunk one night at … Read More Self Discovery Could Save Your Life

Dear Gen-Y, Consider This vs Partying

Throughout my early 20’s I have been caught up in the typical lifestyle; clubbing, partying, road trips, overseas travel, work/studying, dating, but when I turned 23 I had a shift in my priorities and I am so thankful that this happened sooner rather than later. Now I am not saying that I have stopped going out and having a good time, but it has … Read More Dear Gen-Y, Consider This vs Partying

5 Tips To Boost Your Confidence

When I was I was in high school, at age 14 to 16, I consider myself to have had a very different personality. I was much more introverted and self-conscious with low self esteem. Thankfully, I grew out of this stage and while this may have been because of puberty, it also may not have been as some people are unfortunately stuck in this … Read More 5 Tips To Boost Your Confidence
