How many times in your life have you asked yourself why you can’t manage to live the life you always wanted? Does it seem unattainable because the stakes are too high? Does becoming more fearless seem impossible and so you dismiss the thought of living your dreams? Continue reading
If you obey all the rules you miss all he fun. ~ Katharine Hepburn
Katharine Hepburn was considered to be an intelligent, modern and fearless woman, breaking many rules of her time to live a life on her own terms.
Whatever you dream of accomplishing might require you to break some rules, too. Don’t let your fears prevail over your dreams. Trust your fearless heart. There’s plenty for you to gain if you are willing to take a chance. Continue reading
Some days ago, I came across an article about professional surfer Shane Dorian flying all the way from Hawaii to catch a 20 metre monster wave in France. Despite being in the business for a long time and one of the world’s best big wave surfers in the world, he admitted that he was scared, but “that is the pursuit: overcoming your fears.” Continue reading
When negative thoughts start popping up it’s like playing with a set of Matryoshka dolls. Each of them gives birth to new negativity and worries. Our mind is very creative when it comes to inventing things to fear or situations to worry about.

A billboard ad came into sight which caught my eye immediately: two pictures, one of which showing the tiny feet of a newborn hidden under a white blanket, whereas the other portrayed a grayish pair of adult feet with a tag wrapped around one of the big toes.

How is the beast sleeping in your attic? The one you feed and listen to? The one you’ve grown fond of somehow without even knowing? It sneaked into your life and made itself at home.
