Why do people lose motivation? There are many reasons, but one is feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
When things become overwhelming, it blocks your mind and prevents you from moving forward. You’re stuck because there are so many things to do, and you have totally no idea where to start.
It may be good to feel overwhelmed once in a while because you want to push yourself out of your comfort zone, but if this feeling persists, it may cause paralysis and immobilize you.

How do you find your life’s purpose?
Is it something you can even find?
Do you have power over your life’s purpose and how it manifests?

Throughout history, there has been enough knowledge and wisdom passed down that we can learn a thing or two from the legends before us.
There are hints right in front of us every day. Let’s...
What is your biggest desire in life?
If not, then you’re making a huge mistake.
Because our main human drive is to seek personal freedom...and the alternative is a trapped life.

It's the beginning of a new month.
June is here, summer is right around the corner, and all our New Year's Resolutions are probably forgotten.
Hopefully not! I still have my 2021 goals and I'm proud of the progress I've made. I'm still working towards greater success, but I'm also celebrating the micro-wins along the way.
Anyway, when it comes to goal setting, monthly goals are the most powerful in my opinion.
They're not too far away where they take years to accomplish, but are still...
