some kind of magic trick

some kind of magic trick

Sometimes what we desire seems impossible and out of reach. Sadly, for many of us, this gap between where we are and where we want to be seems so wide that we don’t even try. But getting what you want and being who you want is nothing more than an elaborate magic...
how to see the world

how to see the world

The truth of the matter is that it is impossible to see the truth or to understand what is actually happening all around us. It is impossible because instead of one world, there are seven billion worlds simultaneously complementing and contradicting each other. That...
just another Tuesday

just another Tuesday

When I woke up yesterday it was just another Tuesday. I woke up before the opportunity clock could strike 4:02am, sparing my wife being woken by an alarm that could shake the depths of hell. I got dressed, I had my protein shake, drove for an hour, and wrote ‘on my...
on my way

on my way

You haven’t failed and you’re not going to try, you’re simply on your way.  I know it seems like such a trivial matter, the language we use, but it really isn’t. What we say reveals about what we think and believe, which ultimately illustrates how far we’ll get...
two ways to get ahead

two ways to get ahead

There are two ways to get ahead. Two distinct ways of getting things done. You can either become very good at doing the right things, or by being the right person. Of course the street of doing the right things is very crowded and you just might be standing next to...

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Gautama Buddha Contrary to popular belief we are not candles in the wind, nor are we as fragile as the...

If you do nothing you get nothing. Aung San Suu Kyi Nothingness seems like a very simple and straight forward concept. You do nothing, so in turn you get nothing. If you fear to take a step forward, and so your dreams will always remain just outside your grasp. You...
how to move mountains

how to move mountains

With a little bit of faith you can move mountains, but to develop or harness this type of faith is extremely rare. Faith by nature is mysterious and unquantifiable. It sees things for which there is little evidence, or not enough. Faith is rare and often confused with...
walking into your dreams

walking into your dreams

Sometimes our language misleads us into thinking that we live a linear existence. We talk about dreams and success although it was a thing. Something you can point to and analyze and yes there are tangible things that can be accounted for but reaching your dreams is a...
opportunity

opportunity

Today is the day I arrived to Canada some thirty four years ago, and on my dear mothers birthday none the less. It was an exciting time for me. All my classmates were jealous or just happy for the opportunity that we were getting. Poland at the time was not a very...
spelling mistakes

spelling mistakes

It is time to come clean and declare that I have cut some corners in my life. Spelling seems to be at the heart of it. On the other hand, I have mastered grammar in a very unconventional matter, not by learning how it works, but by reading tons and tons of great...
to love or not to love

to love or not to love

There is someone that needs more kindness and understanding, someone who deserves all the love you can spare. That person is you. I am desperately trying not to sound like a cliche Hallmark card moment, but there are no other words that are coming to rescue me. This...

Never repeat a rumour before you have verified it. And if it is true, hold your tongue all the more. Selma Lagerlöf If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all, and when you have uncovered a mistake someone has made keep your mouth shut. This is done for their...

I am like a drop of water on a rock. After drip, drip, dripping in the same place, I begin to leave a mark, and I leave my mark in many people’s hearts. Rigoberta Menchú Tum Rocks are tough objects and its inconceivable that a mellow drop of water would make any...
a ticket to ride

a ticket to ride

I have a long running weakness for Russian literature. Maybe not all of Russian literature, just three pillars; Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, and Solzhenitsyn. Yes, I was crazy enough in the day to devour fifteen hundred pages of War and Peace and Brothers Karamazov in a week...
the next day

the next day

Sometimes the only choice that is left is to simply hang on, get through the day, and await tomorrow. And you should do whatever you have to do in order to tomorrow because it truly matters. It matters for you and it matters for us.  Tomorrow always comes and is...
success list

success list

Ever notice that the things that just have to be done always get done? When we are at work we never ever find it acceptable not to do what we are told because that would mean looking for new work. But why is it that when it comes to our own dreams and our own...
narrow focus

narrow focus

We need more narrow focus than narrow vision in our life. The former is the secret ingredient to a recipe for happiness, while the latter is a long winding fuse that blows up in our face. Narrow vision is far easier than narrow focus. It takes no energy become someone...
this is the end

this is the end

We celebrate the end of things with deep emotion and tremendous intensity.  It doesn’t matter how big an end it is, like a funeral, or how small the end, like the coming of another New Year.  It doesn’t matter what the end really is because we celebrate it...

You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say. Martin Luther We say lots of things. We think lots of things, but we forget to take stock of all of the things we do not say and ultimately do not do. Every yes is a no to something else,...
