BELIEVING IS SEEING This will help you achieve plenty in life Photo by Thomas Kilbride on Unsplash The saying seeing is believing has been around for so long and is commonly used as a logical explanation for how someone can only believe in something once they’ve witnessed it with their own eyes. It sounds logical, it is logical, but is it the only way to truly explain how we can believe things are happening in our lives? Not at all. When you look around you, when you look at every single thing that you have right now — your phone, your clothes, the food that you e ..read more

Why destroying my accounts was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made Photo by Kerde Severin: https://www.pexels.com/photo/selective-focus-photography-of-person-using-iphone-x-1542252/ On February 13, 2019, I deleted my social media accounts. I didn’t just change my password or stop logging on; I destroyed the data they contained forever. As a young millennial, I’d never lived without social media, and I cast myself into the deep end. For those of you who are considering deleting your social media, here are my thoughts. “Was it worth it?” Oh, hell yeah, it was. I’ve saved ..read more

JoJo Siwa vs. Taylor Swift Photo: Maksim Goncharenok / Pexels “Karma’s a bitch,” JoJo Siwa sang over all of our TikTok feeds just weeks ago. At the time, everyone was focused on various aspects of this performance and song. I’m not hear to roast her, as the internet has done enough of that. Instead I want to discuss karma, and whether this 20-year-old “creator of gay pop” was right. Is karma actually coming for those who wronged us? To rip off the bandaid: nope, not in my opinion. I don’t believe in karma anymore, at least not the kind that JoJo and pop culture have peddled to u ..read more

If You Love Someone, Learn To Speak Their Language

I don’t mean French Photo: aranprime / Unsplash I was with my ex for four years, and in that time, we never really learned to speak each other’s languages. He was French, I was Dutch, and we communicated in English. But we were never really communicating how the other needed us to. When we love someone, we want to speak their language. Don’t worry, I’m not about to tell you to go download Duolingo. That owl has scarred me and will not be regaining a place on my limited phone storage. You see, I’m not talking about French, Dutch, or English. I’m also not talking about just romant ..read more

It’s inexorable. Pounding down on you like some alien force. Eroding everything around you. It’s weakening your joints, your bones, your spirit. It’s attacking your very core, your thoughts, and your self-image. It’s not a monster you can shove under the bed or a career problem that can be solved by working harder. It can’t be ‘hacked’. It can’t be bought. It’s not a space-alien that can be welcomed a ..read more

Important mental models from Winston Churchill to Anne Frank to Magnus Carlsen. Source: Getty Images Winston Churchill. Magnus Carlsen. Jeff Bezos. What do these three people have in common? Yes, they’re all uber-successful, but they’re successful because they all share one thing in common: They all think differently from everyone else. They’re contrarian thinkers. They challenge conventional wisdom and think differently from the crowd. This is how John C. Maxwell begins his bestselling book How Successful People Think. But here’s the thing: Contrary to popul ..read more

Hustling your way into the trap of mediocrity and misery. Austin, Texas — Photo by O’Neal Saunders When I was younger, I put a lot of pressure on myself for experiences, efforts, and projects to go a certain way. Like most people, I wanted the best outcome for myself, and nothing else would make me happy. Because of this, I spent a lot of time being unhappy with my outcomes — even when they were objectively pretty good. I wanted X people at my seminar. I wanted an article to get Y likes and make me Z dollars. I wanted to finish every tournament in first place. I will a ..read more

Here is how to get your partner to be more vulnerable Photo by Mohammed_hassan on Pixabay A man that is actively withholding his emotions in relationships is demonstrating a dismissive-avoidant attachment style. It’s important to remember that the dismissive-avoidant attachment style is an insecure attachment style, so they’re going to act disinterested, conceal their emotions, maintain distance, and be quick to withdraw, but these are all defense mechanisms. You’re ultimately dealing with someone who is likely more sensitive than normal, not less sensitive (as they pretend to be). T ..read more

Photo by Francisco Mamani on Unsplash 5 years goes by fast. And there’s a lot to share. In this article, I’ll share my favorite life lessons that I’ve learned over the past 5 years that have shaped my life in powerful ways. Keep in mind: Some of these lessons have nothing to do with “Europe.” It’s just stuff that I happened to learn from being here. (In other words, I could’ve learned those lessons living anywhere.) But this is where I’ve been — so that’s why I’m writing my article about it. Ready? C’est parti. Andiamo. Do Less Without Feeling Guilty One of t ..read more
