Becoming who you are. From an irresponsible student to a 6 am waking up dad.

We’re constantly bombarded by the idea that to achieve greatness all we have to do is just work a bit harder. Wake up earlier, do more exercise, focus more and distract yourself less, this and that. But how do we actually become better, how do we become who we want to become? Just a few years …

Why our misery and misunderstanding comes from the refusal of our instincts.

We tend to forget, or as many people do, to consistently and stubbornly refuse the fact that we’re animals. Calling someone “an animal” is a grave insult in most cultures; a “pig” is a dirty individual with a lack of morals of simply unfit for our organised and neat society. An animal is way below …

Imagine a perfect, happy world. Now, imagine the opposite.

Imagine a world of happiness. Everyone has what they wish for, what they need, what they want. There is no need for food, shelter, security or entertainment.

Our endless journey to achieve self importance.

The feeling of importance is one of human being’s most desired feelings. Epic stories have been written, magnificent concertos created and cities have been destroyed just for one man to feel more important. Almost any wish, desire or dream can be scaled down into one single thing: how important will that wish, desire or dream …

A better view on success for the 21st century.

And how to achieve long lasting happiness. When thinking about success, our minds focus inadvertently on money. Money is king in the world we live in, for many, many reasons.
