My Top Three Stories of Success (without a hard work)


   The idea of writing about my success stories came to me a week ago. I thought if you are reading my blog post at least once a week, then you would like to know who am I and what I can bring to you. That's why now I would like to write about my top 3 success stories which could help people to find motivation in their lives when they are struck somewhere and can't keep going. I write it, because I've been there, I've been in the same situation for the most of my life and I'm sure you can do it too. I've never been a hard working person, but still I kept everything going.

   My three blog posts will be about my top 3 success stories which have changed my mind if not completely, but at least good enough to understand what I was doing and why and how I managed to do them without a hard working routines, but with an approach of habits and effectiveness, not hardiness. Closer to the point the titles are:

1) My Guitar Playing Habits of 7 Years
2) How I got the 7.0 points in IELTS without a hard work
3) How I won the Blog Post Contest without a hard work

   The first one will be more interesting for new starter guitar players or any new starter musicians who don't know where to start and how to manage doing it everyday without losing motivation and control. You will know how I started it and how I kept doing it without a teacher or mentor.

The Power of Self-Esteem



“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”  

-Thich Nhat Han


People are used to judge others by their actions, wear, way of speaking, manners and etc. But let me ask, how right is it? How comes that it is that way and we should do so? As we remember the proverb: "treat others the way you want them to treat you". We have heard it thousand times, but isn't it the reason we judge others the way we judge ourselves? Do people really want to be understood the way they understand others? Totally not. Unfortunately, most of the time we are not good enough in respecting others and ourselves. People mostly want to be understood by others more than they understand themselves. Sometimes we even want to be respected more than we respect ourselves. And it's impossible. We want too much of people where the only thing that deserves to be done is be comfortable with ourselves. 

In our lifespan we are unaware of

Inner Peace

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”


― Mahatma Gandhi




 In our complex world where there are many reasons to be hurt and be distracted by problems isn't it hard to achieve inner peace? Of course it is. But wait a minute, is it you who is reading it or is it someone else? Do you ask someone when you read something? Then why to be hurt by someone else? You are riding yourself where you wanna be. No one stops you. Everything just distracts your attention to make you feel bored and exhausted. Then that's how people created... that specific word: 


Strong. 

If your are strong enough then you know what to do. But what it means to be strong?

Motivation or Manipulation?

It's my first podcast here in my blog. I'm giving a short description of manipulation at first, then I speak about the difference between the manipulation that drives us to build others' dreams and motivation that drives us to build our own dreams and desires. Listen and feel free to share or comment.

February Challenge

    Today I had a really good time, because it is my first free of lessons day of winter holidays. I sketched out some challenges for myself for February. 


    First of them was to start learning French everyday, without missing any day for any reasons. And I have just finished my first lessons for today and I must say it's really amusing and not boring, also because I don't make too much lessons, I just do a little, but with effectiveness. It really works. 


The thing is, when you set yourself a plan for a year or a month and set that you must be fluent in something, mostly it doesn't work, because there is a big chance that you will fail right in the middle. You have a good start and you really do it well, but then suddenly you get tired and stop doing something for a day and then another day and then you just stop doing it.
