I came upon this amazing interview from the ‘hardest man’ alive, David Goggins. In my earlier blog, I talked about how motivation is bullshit. That idea was from a speech given by him. Goggins was no stranger to obstacles and discouragement that came from his constant battle with racism and bad self-esteem. Read More

I woke up before my alarm went off at 7:00 AM, I spent a fair few minutes contemplating whether I should remain in bed or get up and ready myself for the day. I usually keep my phone switched off when I go to bed and use a traditional alarm clock to set alarms. Read More
Today was yet again another day when I woke up in the afternoon and I eventually had to gather all of my energy to get off bed. The only reason I did was to make up for my medical appointment; as I made my way to the hospital, I reflected on all the days when my mornings did not start very well but the day turned out to be very good.

For me, it was either the one or the other; I was either two confident or I was haunted by a multitude of factors that caused dangerously low self esteem. I tried to find a balance, but I was not really willing to put in the effort.

This fear was so heavy and so bonding I just couldn’t push myself to break the barriers. Have you ever felt that way before? Read More

My enthusiasm about movies was passed down to me by my dad, sometimes my dad and I would sit up all night talking about movies of all genres, ranging from comedies to romance to world war movies.

I think it was in the year 2012.
My grades were piss poor, my social anxiety developed an all time high and my insecurities and lack of confidence went through the roof.
It was also around this time when I would call myself a full blown social media addict. I never assumed I had a problem because I did not really spend a great deal of time reflecting on my weaknesses and strengths. I gave up facebook temporarily for about a month or two. I had a bunch of exams that I had to clear and I did NOT intend to come back to college after course to write these exams. I hated my course and I just wanted to be done with it. Read More
