The 54th Deadline: Toward Victory

The 54th Deadline: Toward Victory

At the end of the day, it’s safe to say most people want to be winners. Yeah, well, duh. It’s obvious we all would like to be part of the winner circle if only every other time. Long ago, I was quite the fearful of winning, but let me explain. Basically, I was scared of the notion of having too much attention on me. In many ways, this was a dangerous mentality to have in terms of accomplishing things. In…

The 54th Deadline: Self-Value

The 54th Deadline: Self-Value

As the more time passes, the more I realize that creating your own sense of “self-value” becomes more important. Sure, it would be nice if everyone could just be “successful.” It is just a childish dream to think that everyone deserves nice things. Yeah, it’s just how it is. It’s cruel, unfair and unpleasant for many people out there. For me, there was a point where I just wanted to be angry at the universe. I acted entitled, just thinking…

The 54th Deadline: Getting Past Obstacles

The 54th Deadline: Getting Past Obstacles

One particular mentality I really want to adopt to the maximum degree is the notion of always looking for a solution. A way in. A means to get past a wall. A way to get over it. A way to break right through if necessary. This notion is fundamental when you think about how many of us can let stupid problems stop us in our tracks. In plenty of cases, something blocking your way is only as bad as you…

The 54th Deadline: Sprout

There are days where I do question what I have done up to this point. Whether positive or negative, life requires you to learn plenty of lessons. With that said, everything you do leaves your mark in this world (even if the perception of it may seem insignificant from afar). I like to think that everything I have acquired, every random person I have met, every interaction, every skill or ambition is going to sprout into something spectacular at some…

The 54th Deadline: Ikigai

The 54th Deadline: Ikigai

Over the years, I have come across a lot of life philosophies and motivational concepts. Recently, I stumbled across one called ikigai. Simply put, the notion of ikigai is what makes you “tick” every day. What gets you up in the morning? What makes you excited to go about your day? For me, if I have to look at the ikigai graphic carefully and be completely honest with myself, I am lacking in areas. Because of this, I don’t have…

The 54th Deadline: Knack

The 54th Deadline: Knack

Throughout the years, I have had to learn a lot about myself when it comes to my own particular set of “talents.” Everyone has something they are good at, but it is truly exceptional who make use of it. For me, I used to be good at things like editing. I was so damn good back in college. I could see typos left and right. It was more of a curse than a blessing, yet it was also something I…
