and why money, fame, and power don’t matter

1. Take your shot: with the woman that makes you do a double-take. With the thing you feel most nervous to do. Quit the corporate job. Go travel the world. If you feel strongly about it, do it. We should listen to the “hell yeah” moments our gut shouts at us about.

2. Losing isn’t fun. But winning isn’t fun without knowing what losing feels like. You can’t try to take the big shot, or make a life change, or pick up and go because you are scared of losing. …

I want you to be happier

Happiness is a life’s work of reflection and action, knowing what to subtract and add to your life that may bring or take away well-being, meaning, gratitude, authenticity, and health.

People told me you couldn’t find happiness. Happiness isn’t just something you can snap your fingers for and be.

Can you find happiness or not?

Happiness is a paradox. It comes, goes, ebbs, and flows, yet the more I think about it, research, and learn about happiness, the more I…

How I growth mindset my life:

I write confessions about WHO I should be, despite me.

I think we all should. Confess your pain. Your regrets. Your mistakes. Your happiest moments. The choices you want to makeover in your life. All of our stories contain past, present, and future threads yet somehow remain unique to us.

I choose to celebrate our individuality and our subjective experience.

The bright lights blinded me, and stabbing pain shot into my brain.

Climb your mountain, I whispered to myself. Climb your mountain.

“Wake up, five minutes till we leave,” a low, rumbling voice said from the darkness.

“Five more minutes, I don’t want to get up yet,” I said, my…


And telling your boss to go to f*ck off so you can travel and live free

  1. Nobody actually gives a f*ck what you do, so do what you want. The things most often holding us back are the things you think matter to other people more often than they matter to ourselves.
  2. Telling your boss to f*ck off isn’t about being mean, it’s about you taking…

Stay True to Yourself: Where money, authenticity, self-awareness, growth, and self-improvement meet for coffee.

  1. Strive for time affluence. Happiness isn’t measured in status, or money, or bank accounts — it’s measured in freedom. Time affluence is one of the biggest predictors of happiness.* Don’t pretend for a second that because everyone else is doing something that you should do it. Be a contrarian. Be…
