Know your Why, Think different, Treat expectations, Treat negative emotions

One way to cure all of your negativity

There is,

A unique way to cure your negative feelings,

And not just those feelings, it also cures

All of your irritation,

Confusion,

And discouragement,

It is nothing other than,

To Know your Why


My three-year-old child once,

Decided not to wear clothes on his own

He asked for help, with his kittenish voice,

“Mom, don’t you love me anymore.”

The melted me answered, “My sweetheart, of course I love you.”

Then he went: “Help me wear these clothes, if so.”

And I replied, “I love you, baby,

But no.”

The guilt was there

But I knew my Why.


You may also once,

Felt like you don’t want to accept more workplace challenges.

Because more hard work means less free time

The irritation was there

But you knew your Why.


You may also once,

Felt like the thing you know IS RIGHT

Will never bring you the future of wealth

Because the souls were moved, not the pockets were filled

The confusion was there

But you knew your Why


And once,

You felt like the people you love

Never understand what you have been doing

Because love should have brought “ease and cheese”

The discouragement was there

But you knew your Why


And that was the time

You stepped over your negative feelings

Irritation, Confusion, Discouragement

That were floating on the surface

And faced your ultimate FEAR

That was hiding deep down

And slayed that dragon

With your sword of WHY.

Koinophobia: The fear of living an ordinary life

While I was floating on the information flow in a normal day, this video caught me like a dried branch grabs a yellow leaf in the river with its music, narrative, a sense of sadness, loss and fear.

It is a 3 minute video, you can watch it here.

Its words are so touching:

“While you’re in it, life seems epic.

Fiery, tenuous, and unpredictable.

But once you have some distance from it,

everything seems to shrink,

until it’s almost out of focus.

Koinophobia.

9 reasons Doing new things is helping you evolve

This website is built to encourage doing new things and thinking different. For those who love challenges to thrive, it is clear as a bell. But for those who are so introverted, those who very much enjoy their comfort zone and those who are stuck with procrastination, doing new things is still difficult which requires energy, time, and priority (of course).

If you are one of the latter, you may want to read on to see some cool benefits of doing new, so that you will save your energy and time to put it in your priority list. And if you can make it even better, you will have the need to develop this “Doing new things” mindset, gain its momentum and build it as a habit.

1. Doing new things is A trait of successful people

Successful people might swear when they are talking to one type of person, meanwhile are sophisticated and classy when talking to another type. They might treat one of their employees in a semi-harsh way and treat another in a friendly and relaxed manner. These different situations have nothing to do with chance or coincidence. Highly successful people are fully aware of what they are communicating to the outside world, and they know so because they have a lot of different perspectives through which they can view things.

2. Overcoming fear and stagnation

Have you ever recalled your frequent anxiety or fear toward something? Public speaking? An important examination? A spider or a rat? Doing new little things is a great solution to train ourselves for fear, because it is the time for us to get control and not play victim. Sooner or later, we will be able to respond to difficult circumstances that we have to endure with greater ease. Plus, this method can get you motivated to remove the barriers progressively and overcome the stagnation as well. Gradually, when you get used to little challenges, you will realize that fear has stopped and stagnation has dropped. And then, when facing something that is about to happen, you have already collected enough stamina, and you pop up like a monarch butterfly emerging from chrysalis.

Do new things, Write

Why keeping a journal is a smart way to reach your goal

When you decide to try on one new thing, which maybe your one of your new hobbies, adventures or studying, may I ask do you record it? and how? For instance, if you decide to learn about webdesign technique, do you write down why you decide to learn it, how good you plan to be at, your progress and along way results, your feelings and satisfactions?

How do you know how far you got from the initial decision of trying that one thing? How do you know if that really changed you? And how much more you want in life?

And that is just one thing. If you have a series of things you want to do, as written everywhere in this blog: the 100 new little things, how do you keep track of them?

I strongly recommend you to keep a journal for yourself. Because if you structure it well for your own purposes, you will amazingly accelerate in everything you want to do in life.

Personally I have a lot of journals of all kinds, mostly for reflection purpose. It will be very touching to open an old journal you wrote years ago and read what the young you once said. I am always captivated by my old ideas, dreams, friends, jobs and hobbies, in my most sparkling years back then. Most of those things I already forgot or left in my past, and when I see them again, I know how far I go and more importantly what’s next I want to pursue.

Do you keep a journal or have you at any point written in one? Keeping a journal can be significantly more than jotting during your day’s activities and contemplations. It may be where you become acquainted with yourself and explore your inner world. There is an exceptional sort of journal known as a bullet journal that will enable you to record so many things that are not just your past or memory, but your to-do list, your state, your health, your bucket list, your dreams, so on and so forth. It is often made with starter expressions or points for you to expound on and to consider. A great one even has places for you to return over your writing and note what you have learned about yourself.
