I am inspired by great thinkers.
‘Do one thing: live the life you always wanted to live. Avoid criticizing others and concentrate on fulfilling your dreams.’ Paulho Coelho.
The Secret of Life isn’t a simple issue. The actual ‘secret’ is maintaining a sense of happiness, and taking that next step, even in the face of the greatest adversity. That’s the secret. The reason to do good and manage your life according to success principles is so that when things go south and life seems bleak and everything is going wrong, you know that you have a handle on what to do. That’s all. Living a life by a set of standards will not necessarily bring you success but may help you through the tough times.
Are you comfortable in your own skin? That’s what it’s all about.
In this blog I hope to share some simple ‘rules’ for daily living. I hope to share some philosophies that I have learnt through the trial and tribulations of my own life. Follow them if they appeal to you, ignore them if they don’t.
