Stories about me

Fear of failure. Fear of success.

Failure. Success. Fear of failure; fear of success. Somehow failure and success are interconnected like two sides of a coin, you can have heads or tails, but you can’t have them both. If you succeed, you didn’t fail, and the other way around.

After long introspection I’ve realized that I’m afraid of both. Strange isn’t it? And this fear is holding me back,  blocking my path to, do you feel the irony, success. Fear of success it’s blocking my access to success. (more…)

I’m an average guy, and that’s ok

I’m currently reading a very interesting book called “The subtle art of not giving a fuck”. A very interesting book I might add.

This book takes most of the common self-help/motivational agenda that we find in the books and send it down the drain.

How I became a morning person!

I like to think of myself as a morning person. Most of the days I have set my alarm clock at 5 AM or 5:30 . If i’m tired or without anything important to do, I get off the bed around 6:00.

First the right, then the left. I splash myself, like I child in a hot spring day, to let the body get used with the cold water.  (more…)

Am I a perfectionist?

A while back I was reading an article about perfectionism and how it affects our daily life.

The article referred to how searching for the perfect environment, the perfect project, the perfect life, in the end, it drives you crazy. Because in your mind you will search for that perfect feeling every time you want to do something, and you won’t find it because, let’s be honest, nothing is perfect. (more…)
