Don’t leave your body to hope and chance

Any success in your life is built on rituals and habitual patterns. Without a plan or end game, there is no goal to be disciplined for. Without a vision of the future we will return to the past, which tends to be full of bad habits and mistakes. The things we do every day are [...]

An event is just an event

There is a technique I learnt form Byron Katy. When something goes wrong or something happens out of our control, our mind will go to the lowest level of training.
