Impressive Benefits of Living in a Tiny House

Tiny houses have captured the hearts of people everywhere! Many folks are escaping the crushing debt of owning a big house by living in a tiny home to save money. Some tiny homes are portable, others are more permanent.

Living in a tiny house will save you money and help you get out of debt.

Massive houses are harmful to the economy (debt) and the environment. 

Most of the time people hang out in a small area in their house (usually a chair or couch) in one room. The rest of the house is hardly used at all. If more people lived in tiny homes it would help our economy, environment and get them out of debt!

You can do this! A 70-year-old man built his tiny home to live in for his retirement and a 13-year-old made one for $1,500! Teenagers are building tiny homes to live in when they go to college. Genius!

Tiny houses have all the luxuries of a typical home. You can park by a beautiful lake and have a shower, take a nap, wash clothes, cook or binge on Netflix.

You can also use your tiny house as a tool to help you achieve goals in life like getting out of debt.

Freedom From Debt

Living in a tiny house will save you so much money that you’ll easily get out of debt within a year or two. American mortgage debt had reached it’s highest peak of $13.15 TRILLION dollars! The 2008 housing crisis mortgage debt was $12.68 Trillion.

The cost difference between a typical house and a tiny house is gargantuan. In April 2017, the U.S. Census Bureau said that the average home’s sales price was $368,300.

A tiny home will only set you back $10 to $60 grand and you’re done paying rent or mortgage forever!

Quality Over Quantity

A huge house feels empty. So, people go out and buy clutter to fill the house up (essentially making it feel smaller).

What they don’t realize is that all that junk adds stress to their lives. The clutter slowly takes over in piles, boxes, and bags of crap.

Some people shove the junk into attics and closets, others buy a BIGGER house to store all their stuff!

Living in a tiny home requires you to de-clutter.

Living in a tiny house will save you money and help you get out of debt.

You’ll also be less likely to accumulate clutter in the future because you won’t have room for it. More money for you to spend on awesome experiences and traveling!

Freedom to Travel

People love the freedom of owning a portable, house so they can travel and not have to stay in hotels.


A mini-home means more possibilities for you. You’re only limited by your imagination. Perhaps you want to live in the mountains or the countryside, or by the beach, or underground, or even on the water! Your choice!

Less Impact On The Environment

A small living space will heat up and cool down more efficiently than a big house. Kiss those annoying electric and water bills goodbye! The environment benefits tool!

Tiny homes are usually equipped with solar panels that pay for themselves over time! Some small homes use a windmill or a watermill for free power as well. Free is good!

Design and Build Your Dream Home

You have lots of options with tiny home designing. You can have a full-sized kitchen, a bigger bathroom or a hot tub on your roof balcony!

Designing a small place costs much less than for a full sized house. So, you can afford to design whatever you want and use quality materials.

You can really let your imagination run wild when you design your own tiny house. You could even live in a floating micro-houseboat or a tiny tree house!

Secret passageways and hidden doors are always cool! If you’re a nonconformist/artist type, you could paint 3D optical illusions on the walls or ceilings!


Owning a home on your own land is freedom. Suppose someday the economy tanks, or there’s a water crisis, or hackers shut down the power grid? You wouldnt even notice!

Living in a tiny house will save you money and help you get out of debt.

Tiny houses change lives for the better, help the environment and rescue people from debt.

How to Become Ferociously Motivated in Life

How to Become Ferociously Motivated in Life

Have you ever struggled with getting motivation? Say you have a deadline and you know it’s creeping closer by the minute. You know you should go work on your project but you don’t know how or where to even start.

Soon, fearful thoughts of putting yourself  “out there” and possibly failing. Dwelling on fearful thoughts causes people to give up, shut down and slip back into the comfortable shadows where no one can see them. They wither away and never attempt their life changing ideas.

Hold yourself to a higher standard than that. Don’t allow yourself to waste your life away! You’ve got work to do and you don’t know how much time you have left. It could all end tomorrow? On a lighter note….Here are 7 tips to get yourself motivated:

1. Think Positive Thoughts About the Task

Once you have a task in mind. Start thinking good thoughts about doing the activity. People procrastinate when they’re in a negative mood. Pessimism devours your energy, creativity, and inspiration.
So, encourage yourself while you ‘re working. Research has shown that positivity will increase your productivity too.

Also, imagine how relieved and happy you’ll feel when you finish the project!

2. Plan Your Day

What should you do today to bring you closer to your dreams?
Take the time to
research, plan and write out everything that needs done for you to reach your goal.

Prioritize the list in order from your project’s first task to the last task. Include start times and deadlines!

3. Stop Resisting Progress

Procrastination is self-sabotage. Don’t hesitate anymore.
Every day make your way down your list. Each time you complete a task, it‘ll motivate you more.
Start the first little task of your entire project. That’s it. Don’t worry about the entire project, focus on the aspect you are working on now.

4. Give Yourself a Sense of Urgency

Gaining a sense of urgency can bring out your ability and desire to finish the job.
Choose a task and set a timer (a real one or an app on your phone) for how long you think it’ll take you to complete the activity.

Decide on a punishment if you don’t finish the task before the time is up. Also, choose a prize for if you finish in time.
Challenge your productivity skills. Give yourself a deadline and set a timer! Go!
5. Reward/Bribe Yourself
Reward yourself when you finish an assignment. You’ll slaughter your “To Do List” when you know you’ll get a prize in the end. Celebrate even your small successes.

6. Try the Pomodoro Technique

This productivity technique trains your brain to focus and to work in a more efficient way. In time, it can even improve your general ability to concentrate.
Set a timer for 25 minutes, then work intensely on your task, non-stop. When the timer goes off, take a 15-minute break. Then, repeat as needed.

7. Take a Mini-Meditation Break.

When you’ve been running your brain on full-speed, all day, you’ll eventually crash and burn out. Whenever you need to rest your mind, take a quick meditation break. Sit back, close your eyes and focus on your breathing for one or two minutes. You’ll return to work with revived focus and energy. girl-beachMEDITATING
Everyone lacks drive sometimes. If you have more lazy days than motivated days then you need to take control of your life back. Shock yourself with how much you can accomplish. So, have you been snoozing instead of grinding on your craft? Remember you are the only one who can shape your future. Don’t forget to subscribe below!


Mistakes People Make While Growing up That You Can Avoid

Your 20’s is a time of learning so you will make a mistake here and there. It’s a pivotal decade for discovering who you are and what you want out of life. If you decide to party the whole time, your life could spiral out of control. But, we learn life’s lessons the hard way sometimes.

We all screw up from time to time. But, some bad choices can have a long-term, negative impact on your life and your mind. Learn from other’s mistakes before you have to learn them for yourself.determinedLuckily, you can avoid the following detrimental mistakes!

Mistake #1. Rushing into marriage.

Realize that your taste in partners will change as you mature.

When you’re in your early 20s you’ll fall in love and it will seem like a dream. You think it’ll always be that way so you get married.

Years go by, then you realize between you and your partner,  there isn’t anything in common.

Then, you get divorced. You won’t want to go through that again. But, in time,  you’ll find someone who has their shit together and is ready to settle down.

 Marriage will not “complete you” –- you complete you.

Sounds corny, but it’s true. Your marriage can’t be your sole purpose in life. Listen to that little voice (your subconscious) and it’ll tell you what you need to do. Then, go for it (unless your subconscious tells you to hurt anyone)!

Relationships take work!

That giddy, love feeling will fade no matter who you marry. Realize that everything won’t fall into place and stay that way forever. You’ll need to keep up and work on issues in the marriage. Go into your marriage knowing that it will take work to make it last. You’ll need to apologize, compromise and talk about your feelings. If you’re too stubborn to do that then it is going to be a long, lonely, journey for you.

Mistake #2. Getting pregnant immediately after marriage.

Know the responsibility and costs that come with having kids.

 Even if you’ve saved up $10,000 to have a baby, that won’t even get you through half the first year of your child’s life. It can cost $21,000 for the first year and a whopping $260,000 to raise a child to 18 years of age. This is only for the bare essentialsno fancy clothes or toys included. pregnant

Try an IUD for birth control till you’re ready to have kids.

20% of children in the developed world live in poverty. This is harmful to children and societies. If you aren’t ready to have kids, try Paragard IUD for birth control.

An IUD (Intrauterine Device) is a small, copper “T” that your doctor will place inside your uterus. Humans contain copper already so it’s harmless. Sperm hates copper. I have a Paragard IUD and I’d recommend it to anyone. IUDs prevent pregnancy for 12 years. It has 0 hormones and no side-effects. IUDs are one of the most effective forms of birth control out there! It will save you a ton of money because you pay for it once and then get it taken out 12 years later.
When you’re ready to get pregnant, your gynecologist can remove the IUD and you will be fertile again immediately. Voilà!

We are not living in biblical times.

Many people are still worshiping ancient books that tell them to multiply like rabbits. Having tons of babies doesn’t make you a better, or more “Godly person”. It’s  irresponsible to have a bunch of babies, regardless of whether you can afford them or not. Our planet can’t afford them. 

Humans have taken over the planet, but if we continue reproducing , we could mess it all up. Earth only has a finite amount of resources. Currently, it isn’t able to sustain everyone. Hundreds of Thousands of people die yearly from lack of clean water and food.

If you’re exploding with love to give, adopt a child instead of getting pregnant. Adopting won’t ruin your body, no stretch marks or weight gain! You’d feel great about yourself for saving a child from a horrific life of repeated traumas. You’ll get major karma points for that, I assure you! If you adopt, you’d be fixing the issue rather than making it worse.

Mistake #3. Going to college right after high school.

After high school, you probably don’t have a clue what your ideal job looks like. Chances are, you haven’t had enough job experience to know what you’d enjoy doing. Why lock yourself down to a “lifetime career” right after high school? Only 27% of college grads actually get a job related to their major anyways.

People change careers many times throughout their lifetimes. They slave away at a job they hate because they chose their major many years ago as an immature teenager.

After college comes the debt.

A college degree can enslave you into debt for years, possibly decades. It will hold you back from using that money for something profitable, like investing. 70% of students leave college with $38,000 worth of debt. Don’t start out your life in the negative!

Check out this BBC documentary about our future in the year 2050.

Everyone is different.  We will all make mistakes in life, but that’s how we grow. We would have never learned to walk if we didn’t keep getting back up. Remember, all you have to do to be a good person is not hurt (or be harmful) to other people.

Think about how you want your life to turn out. Make your decisions in accordance with that plan. Disregard what your parents want you to do. It’s your life and you’re the one who has to live it.

What mistakes growing up did you make?

Original Thinkers and The 10 Keys to Unlock Your Creative Genius

10 Features of an Original Thinker and How to Unlock Your Creative Genius

Original thinkers are the best business innovators and leader. Original thinkers are nonconformists that speak out and use their creativity to change the planet. They have brilliant ideas that no one thought of before and will blast through the haters to reach their goal.

People might try to stifle originals because they aren’t brave enough to attract extra attention. If you are hiring others,look out for the following signs of an original thinker because they’re the reason for  innovations that sky-rocket sales. You want them on your team.

The signs of an original thinker:

1. They are extremely curious about everything

Original thinkers are very complex and they want to know as much as possible. They’ll ask or research to find the answers they crave.

2. They procrastinate

Originals will do anything to avoid the task at hand. Procrastination is their weakness. While procrastinating, they mull over thoughts to extract the best ideas.

Original thinkers like to marinate in their thoughts, instead of snatching them up. They thoroughly think about all aspects of the idea before acting on it. This can look like laziness or irresponsibility.

3. They are afraid of failing, but more afraid to not try

On someone’s death bed they tend to think back on their life and the possible successes they didn’t allow themselves to have. There might have been a book they wanted to write, but didn’t. They may have chosen to never move from their hometown and they feel they have lost out on many life experiences.

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation — Herman Melville

4. Original thinkers have a strong drive and are self-motivated with their goals

They love to strive for their goals. Progress is happiness (as with most people).

5. They aren’t afraid to question long-held societal beliefs

Like I said earlier, these people are super curious. They don’t accept spoon-fed information just because everyone else does. They question things and research or experiment to find the truth. This brings me to my next point.

6. They are major nonconformists

Steve Jobs used to walk around with bare feet whether people thought he was crazy for it. He didn’t seem to care that he always wore a turtleneck sweater. Original thinkers don’t have time to worry about if other’s like them or not. Einstein had some crazy, troll hair, but it didn’t concern him because he had an ultimate goal to strive for everyday. Salvador Dali was… well… way out there… and he loved it.

7. They are highly creative

You can’t come up with brilliant, unique ideas or solutions if you don’t have a wealth of creativity. If you are truly creative then you don’t need to copy other’s idea or systems, you come up with them on your own.playing-guitar

8. They are confident about their ideas

Original thinkers are confident in their ideas because they have analyzed it before sharing with others or creating it. They know it is a great idea.

9. They do have bad ideas as well

Original thinkers will have some lame ideas like anyone else. This is because of their sheer volume of ideas has to include some bad ones.

10. They get in trouble

If you find yourself interviewing people, don’t immediately disregard those who were fired in the past. In fact, consider them more intensely. Steve Jobs even got fired. Look for any insubordinate types that were actually great innovators.

Original Thinkers and The 10 Keys to Unlock Your Creative Genius

Business consultant Adam Grant has said that anyone can become an original. He said, “Take Sarah Robb O’Hagan. She held senior roles at both Virgin and Atari and got fired at both. A deadbeat right? Afterward, she got a job at Nike and then became president of Gatorade and Equinox”.

He said that when she spoke at his class, she cussed 6 times in the first 5 minutes. She talked about being fired and how destructive it was to her career. She also told the group about not being afraid to make mistakes.

Grant described her as being someone who doesn’t care what others think or trying to fit in. He said:

“At Gatorade, she championed many ideas that nobody liked. For one, she said it shouldn’t be just a sports drink, but a sports performance company. Everyone hated those ideas . . . until they eventually rescued the brand.”

While its true that some people are naturally original thinkers, everyone can become more original. They just need to think up ideas to make the world a better place. Try the following methods to become an original thinker and boost your chances of success.

How to become an original

What kind of questions do you ask yourself – any self-uncertainty or idea doubt? Turn your questions around by re-framing them as idea doubt, and notice the distinction it makes to your life.

  • Tune in to the messages you tell yourself when you fail

Rather than considering failure to stop doing what you’re doing, use it as a chance to create and grow. Tell yourself that you are not there yet, and learn from your mistakes.

  • Get out of your comfort zone

Create certainty by making a move, particularly when the activity includes risks and disappointment. Get outside your comfort zone.

  • Begin with little goals

Small goals enable you to develop and pick up confidence. In the event that you come up short, consider how you can improve next time and attempt it once more.


Becoming an original thinker is essential to reaching your highest potential as a person. Your beliefs guide you throughout your life. Don’t you think you should believe the truth and not stories people have told you in the past? Research things for yourself. Seek the truth.

Negative Thoughts and the Law of Attraction

Negative thoughts mixed with the Law of Attraction can be a harmful cocktail. The Law of Attraction attracts into our lives whatever we think about. Negative thinking (or rumination) can lead to major problems like depression or anxiety. The Law of Attraction will turn those worries into reality. We don’t want that to happen.

This isn’t a “Secret” it has been a well known universal law for centuries. Will Smith, Oprah Winfrey, and Beethoven have all proven the validity of this law.

If you force yourself to think positive thoughts about your life and your abilities, you’ll take actions to do your goals.

When you can’t stop thinking negative thoughts, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What am I worrying about exactly?
  2. Is there anything I can do to fix this?
  3. What role did I play in this situation? How can I learn to stop doing that?
  4. Imagine if your worst fear actually happened, write down all the ways you could handle it and still be okay.

you survived

 You’ve dealt with past issues moment by moment, but over time you got through it.

It’s important for you to know that thoughts turn into reality. If we obsessively think painful thoughts we form a metaphorical “shit cloudover our lives. Those are never good!

Try the following to regain control over your thoughts.

1. Increase Awareness of Your Thoughts

Notice when you are thinking negative thoughts. Remind yourself that just because you thought it, doesn’t mean it’s the truth. Stop the behavior and distract yourself completely in something else.

Often when we get stuck on loop mode it’s because negative thinking has become a habit. The subconscious loves to make you do the same thing over and over. It is the reason we have habits.

You see the subconscious wants you to think “it happened before, it will happen again” and this is false. It will make you avoid trying new things.

When we allow ourselves to default to negative thinking we in grain these thoughts into our mind.


Do something that makes you feel happy

Go swimming, take a drive, paint something, go to a park, do some Yoga, listen to some upbeat music or call a friend. Doing something that makes you happy will distract you and give you something else to focus on.

The next time you catch yourself obsessing over negative past event or future worries, say: “Stop!”.

If you don’t want to freak-out your co-workers or family members you can just snap a rubber band on your wrist.

Afterwards, get up and go do something enjoyable. The subconscious takes over when we are sitting around not being mentally stimulated.

Know that mistakes are learning opportunities.

We must learn from the past if we want to avoid repeating the situation.

Don’t take everything so seriously! Let yourself laugh!

Laughing releases the body’s feel-good chemicals that give you an overall sense of well-being. It can lower your stress levels and increases immunity and infection-fighting antibodies. This is why people say “Laughter is the best medicine”.

It’s hard to worry while your laughing! So call up that funny friend or watch your favorite comedy.

You can take charge of your life and free yourself from irrational fears and useless worrying. Like any new skill, it takes practice and repetition. Take your time and keep working on it.

How to Harness the Powerful ‘Flow’ State of Mind

Scientists have started to unravel what happens in the brain during flow when focus increases, you have ULTIMATE productivity, time disappears, and we get into ‘the zone’. By understanding the science, and using these practices we can increase our ability to get into flow consciousness.

Being in the zone is a liberating and an empowering feeling. After you’ve had it, trust me, you’ll want it again! The desire to re-experience this state will motivate you to continue practicing, improving and fine-tuning your passion.

The flow mindset will launch you to the next level, in any area of your life. You’ve got to earn this high-level mindset. Anyone who tries hard enough for it will eventually accomplish it. Don’t be left behind!

People used to believe that only prodigies and geniuses were able to tap into flow.

In fact, we can all tap into this super-human power and unleash our limitless potential!



We have “hack-able” brains! Your brain can transform physically in reaction to our behaviors and thoughts.

You don’t have to become an artist or a musician to experience flow. Be relaxed, yet alert and don’t worry about how you’re performing. Keep going with it! You must be having fun if you want to get into “the zone”. Flow is a state of mind– not a time of the month.

Flow will give you an intense sensation of happiness and freedom while you are having fun working on your craft. Learning how to take control of this mental state can have an astonishing impact on your life.

When you are not in flow:

Things aren’t working and thoughts aren’t flowing.

When You Are In a State of Flow:

  • You‘re 100% focused on your task.
  • Your creativity and productivity levels soar.
  • You will lose track of time and of your environment. You might find that in flow, you don’t even exist!

Brainwaves and Flow State


Scientists have been studying what happens in the brain during this elusive state of mind. They found that during flow, the brain releases massive amounts of norepinephrine, dopamine, anandamide, and serotonin.

These are all performance, mood, and creativity enhancing neurotransmitters. This explains the fantastic rush we get from being in the zone!


It isn’t only the neurochemicals that produce flow states, it’s also the frequency or brainwaves.

You can force your brainwaves to change to the desired state by listening to binaural beats and isochronic tones for Alpha and Theta.

Our brain activates the state of flow between Alpha (daydreaming) and Theta (almost asleep) brainwaves. This state of mind is called the “lucid state”. So, we want a calm (yet alert) mental state.


1. Make an Instrumental Playlist

(No lyrics. They will distract you and keep you away from flow.)

If you want to speed-up the process, you could listen to isochronic and binaural beats. Isochronic tones guide your dominant brainwave activity to a different frequency. This empowers you to alter your mental state.

Our dominant brainwave patterns and our daily life are inseparable. Brainwaves are created by synchronized electrical pulses from neurons communicating with each other.

The 5 brainwaves are (from fastest to slowest) the Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta each speed will give you a different mindset.

Brainwave speed is measured in Hertz (cycles per second). These sounds are set each corresponding brainwave frequency. Listen to these YouTubes to try it out!

2. Choose a challenging activity that you love doing

Choose something that is hard enough to stretch your abilities, but not so difficult that you get discouraged.

Any consistent task that you have fun doing, can put you into a flow state. Some people like to write, play sports, clean, draw or practice whatever it is they want to master, so they get into the zone.

3. Discover your most productive time of the day

There are specific times of the day when you are most efficient. Choose your most productive and creative time of day. Practice working in flow at that time and you could be up to 3x more productive.

4. Create the perfect “flow-inducing” environment.

Clean your space, this is where you’ll practice your skill to enter the flow state. Choose a space where it is less likely to be distracted.


Focus is key and it’s hard to focus when there’s clutter everywhere.


5. Get outside

After a while, if you feel as if your brain has flat-lined, take a break! You aren’t being productive if you’re staring blankly at your laptop.

Physical exercise is essential for a strong mind and body… whether we want to or not. This will allow your brain to rest so it can perform optimally when you get back.

6. Stay hydrated.

You will lose track of time in flow, so you will want to make sure you are drinking enough water.


Dehydration side effects can sneak up on you. You could get headaches, memory problems, “brain fog” or confusion. For these reasons, you should make sure you have some water nearby as you work.

Check out this TEDtalk by Steven Kotler on how to get into the flow.

After you’ve practiced the above steps you’ll be ready to enter flow. Keep practicing until it’s burned into your brain, then you can let flow sweep you away. Have fun!

Why YOU Need More Solitude in Your Life

Spending time alone is essential in learning who you are.  In solitude you can discover who you are, what you believe and what you should do with your life this is psychologically essential to your well-being.

You might have life-changing ideas bubbling in your soul right now. Although, you won’t discover them unless you leave the crowd and find solitude.


Know that you deserve your own awesome reality created by and for you, rather than the path others have laid out for you.

The best way (although not the only way) to experience solitude is while you’re in silence with no distractions.

Every time we are waiting in line, we whip out our phones. Whenever we get in the car, we listen to music. If our apartment or home is quiet we turn on the TV. Technology can spoil our ability to be alone.

No matter where you live or who you live with, you can have solitude. There are even benefits from taking only 5-15 minutes of alone time.

Some people fear being alone to think. Solitude isn’t scary and it doesn’t mean you can’t have friends, it means that now you take the time to be your own friend as well. This is using your spare time in the most effective way possible.

You never know, you might learn something about who you are!

Solitude can help you to take a break and examine your life. From there, you can find the answers.

The answers are within you.

Spend time with yourself to find the solutions to your most tormenting of issues. Distracting yourself from your thoughts will not make them easier to find.

Interacting with people can be like a chess game. We change how we behave in response to how others act. Most of this game is played subconsciously. Sure, we tend to adapt to situations, but it still takes a toll on you.


I’m not saying you should sell all your stuff, move to the woods and live as a hermit. Don’t cut off all of your friends and replace them with cats!


Being around others can be beneficial, in moderation, but constantly being absorbed in society can be soul sucking.

So, if you feel tired and depressed it could be because you’ve been around too many people that day.

What can you GAIN from SOLITUDE?



Solitude will allow you to examine your life and will enable you to realize what your next move should be. Having the ability to step back from the chaos of the world and concentrate, is essential for focus.



In the case of many large groups, the leader is an intensely solitary individual because superior concentration has massive benefits for them and ultimately for the people that they lead. Being alone helps leaders to accomplish their daily goals and be more productive.


Who doesn’t want more creativity? While you‘re alone you can hone-in on your craft and possibly change your world!

Famous musicians, artists, and geniuses spend massive amounts of time in solitude fine-tuning their skills. Over time, they transform themselves into a master of their field.

Solitude Will Help You Through the HARD TIMES



In difficult times, the instinct is often to reach out for support. Solitude has been proven to be therapeutic. Perhaps we should be seeking within to find the answers. 

During World War II, psychiatrist Viktor Frankl was captured by Nazis and imprisoned in Auschwitz concentration camp.

He was still able to find peace by escaping into solitude, even while surrounded by death.

He wrote of his experiences and later he published them in his famous book, “Man’s Search for Meaning” where he wrote:

“There were times, of course, when it was possible, and even necessary, to keep away from the crowd. . . . The prisoner craved to be alone with himself and his thoughts. He yearned for privacy and for solitude. After my transportation to a so-called ‘rest-camp’ I had the rare fortune to find solitude for about five minutes at a time. Behind the earthen hut where I worked and in which were crowded about fifty delirious patients, there was a quiet spot in a corner of the double fence of barbed wire surrounding the camp. A tent had been improvised there with a few poles and branches of trees in order to shelter a half-dozen corpses (the daily death rate in the camp).”

Ways to Enjoy Some Solitude Today

  • Wake up a little earlier and sit with some coffee and think about things, before your day starts. I prefer staying up after most people are asleep for this.
  • You could also go for a walk alone and admire nature while listening to the wind blow through the trees.
  • Have a spare moment? Sit in a quiet room and write.

Enjoy the silence, it’s a good thing. Let it free you from the anxieties of the day.


You can experience solitude at any moment. Ideally, in a quiet and distraction-less environment, but deal with what you’ve got. You can train yourself to block out external stimuli.

You can become a better leader, more creative and help you get through rough times in life find your identity in solitary moments while writing down what you believe in (not what others have told you to believe).

What’s important to you? What are your goals? Solitude will enable you to return to society with more confidence to take control of your life and your circumstances.

So… how will you find the time for solitude today?

The Top 10 Success KILLERS

The Top 10 Success KILLERS

Have you been sabotaging your own happiness? Have you been following miserable people’s footsteps? Have your subconscious thoughts been making you run in circles? Guaranteed, you won’t reach your dream life if you keep that up. You must avoid these 10 success killers so you can create your optimal life.


1. Neglecting to Create Your Personalized Definition of Success

How will you know if you’ve reached success, when you aren’t sure of what that entails? Stop and think before you answer. Make sure this is YOU and YOU ALONE that is defining a successful life, not what your parents have told you.

What makes YOU happy? What would your ideal future home be like? Does it have to be a mansion? Do you have to have kids? Or is your dream job going to require lots of travel? Do you want to have a boss? Or be your own master? What is your ideal annual income?

There are many aspects to tinker with when it comes to envisioning your ideal life. Make your definition of success extremely clear. This will help you make the right choices for future decisions. You always have the choice to live YOUR life however you want… just as long as you don’t hurt anyone of course.

If you don’t take the time to figure out what success means for you then you won’t know what you are supposed to be striving for each day to reach your goals.

Which brings me to …

2. Not writing out the steps you need to take, to turn your thoughts into reality.

Berkeley.edu shared some tips for setting effective goals:

  • Express your goals positively, rather than framing them in terms of what you don’t want.

  • Be precise in setting dates, times, and amounts so that you know when you have achieved your goals.

  • Set priorities so that you know which of your goals to focus your attention toward and helps you avoid feeling overwhelmed by having too many goals.

  • Write your goals down so that you can visually be reminded of them and so that you can craft them to be precise and clear.

  • Break down your goals into small, achievable tasks so that you get frequent opportunities to accomplish them and feel motivated to take on other goals.

  • Set realistic goals that you can achieve and that are in your own control.”

3. Subconsciously Telling Yourself That Money is Evil


Many of us grew up in some sort of religion that preaches the evil of money because a poor person is much easier to control than a wealthy one.

Money is not “evil”. A US dollar is just 75% cotton and 25% linen. It has no ability to be evil.

If you believe this nonsense about money being “bad” then your subconscious (which makes 60% to 80% of your decisions) will not allow you to become successful. You don’t have to choose to do something only because it will make you a lot of money. Choose a job that you enjoy and that pays your bills.

Don’t worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~Howard Thurman

4. Being Stuck in Your Comfort Zone

Our subconscious mind can be quite the sneaky bitch sometimes. It will hold you back from your dreams by making you do the same things everyday. You are going to have to step out from the deceptive comfort zone.

This zone feels like it’s nice and cozy. Nothing too horrible ever happens there so it must be safe. Wrong. The comfort zone will have you waste away years of your life and will deplete your happiness.

People stay in this rut of “comfort” because they don’t feel confident that they can achieve their dreams. The confidence you have in yourself to learn new skills, reach your goals, and attain your dreams will make or break your path to success. As you keep leaving your comfort zone and pushing yourself farther – your confidence will grow.

You will be proving to yourself that you can do it. Your subconscious can’t deny what you’ve proven you can do. Accomplishment happens outside your comfort zone.

5. You Haven’t Looked for, Researched or Experimented to Find Your Life’s Passion

Maybe everyday you are busting your ass for some ungrateful pig of a boss. You don’t need to live like that. You’re better than that.

Maybe you are waiting for that enlightenment fairy to float down to you, wave it’s wand over your head and BOOM!? You realize your life’s passion!


No. You’ve got to spend time each day pondering about what you enjoy or enjoyed doing as a child.

What do you like to read about the most? Brainstorm out ideas on to paper. Try new activities to find new passions. Learn everyday.

6. Not having the Motivation/Time to Do What Needs Done

Everyone’s favorite excuse, “I just don’t have the time.” This equates to you not having the motivation to really try to reach your goals.

This is why envisioning your ideal life is so important. Why would you want to do all this work when you can’t see the outcome?

This might feel like you are being mean to yourself but you must force yourself to do what you need to do. No excuses! Crack the (metaphorical) whip on yourself! Don’t stop until you’ve accomplished your goal for the day!

7. Not Taking Responsibility for Your Life

Sure, it’s easier to just sit back and let life fly by. But, it’s a sure fire way to create a miserable existence. If you don’t think you have the power to change your life then you certainly don’t. But everyone of us has the power to change our lives for the better. EVERYONE. THIS MEANS YOU!

So, why aren’t people taking control back? Because it’s easier to not even try for goals and to just continue trying not to get fired everyday.

That’s a scary “comfort” zone to be stuck in. Realize you can do something amazing and start practicing and learning about it after work. After some time you might not even NEED that job anymore.


8. Conforming to Your Existing Conditions and Avoiding Success

Settling for a mediocre existence is dooming yourself to misery.

If you want more out of your life then you have to go get it. It’s not going to fall into your hands – you are going to have to work for it. That is what makes success so awesome, because you created it all yourself.

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” – John F. Kennedy


9. Not Paying Attention to Truth-tellers

Find someone who inspires you and is kind enough to share their wisdom with you. This will save you time by avoiding mistakes and steering you in the direction of your goals. Don’t assume you will figure it out on your own. You need to have someone who you can get advice from to avoid wasting time and energy.

10. Not Taking Action or Following Through

You’ve got to develop some self-discipline. Bleh! I know, that doesn’t sound fun. Well it’s not, but it is quite thrilling once you get the hang of making yourself do what you need to. You will be more confident and motivated once you make yourself do the work to get success.

Awesome Things You MUST Know About Sleep

We spend one-third of our lives asleep, the amount and quality of our sleep is essential to our well-being. Personally, I’ve been a natural insomniac since I was a little girl and I love it.

I remember one night, my mom gave me Benedryl to help (make) me go to sleep. So I took the pill, she put me to bed then waited 15 minutes. My mom peeked her head in my door and asked if I felt tired.

Maybe it was for shock effect but I leaped up on the bed and bounced around exclaiming “NO! I FEEL LIKE DANCING!”

I’ve always been a night owl and it’s been hard to force myself to behave like the majority of society. This includes waking up early in the morning everyday, scrambling to get ready for work, going to work, being a  good employee, going home and then going to bed early, to repeat the cycle the next day… shoot me now!

I love nothing more than to be awake in the still, silence of the night. It’s like the world shuts down and becomes mine. My mind overflows with creativity at this time and that’s the best feeling in the world.


Some days I will snooze for 10 – 14 hrs depending on how much I need to recover. Sometimes I will take naps on and off for days and not in one lump sum per night. As it turns out this is a type of sleep schedule (Polyphasic) that actually works for some people… usually entrepreneurs.

I use a sleep tracking app religiously, every time I go to sleep. If you want to give it a shot it’s called “Sleep Better” and it’s free. It shows me how much I’ve been sleeping and the quality of my sleep. It’s pretty cool, especially for such an erratic sleeper as myself.

A third of our lives are spent sleeping, I think we should be reading up on the topic.

The following facts are considered normal, harmless sleeping behavior:

1. It’s normal to wake up 5-15 times per night.

Although, you typically won’t remember these times because in order for you to notice, you have to be awake for at least 3 minutes.

Have you ever had to wake up your partner to tell them or ask them something, they respond and pass back out. When they wake up they have no memory of ever even talking to you.

2. You must be asleep for at least 10-20 minutes in order to realize that you even fell asleep.

That’s one of the reasons why power-naps can feel like they didn’t even happen. I can’t fall asleep for 30-90 minutes but maybe I am asleep for some of that time?

3. Sleep heals!

In 2015, I got out of the ICU after having a massive asthma attack and a week-long stay in the ICU, I had track marks all over my arms from the IV’s. It was quite startling and unpleasant to look at. When I finally got home to my bed where I could get some sleep, I woke up and my husband pointed out that my arms were, for the most part, completely healed! Thank you Jesus! LoL jk …about the Jesus part… anyways. Sleep is required for both your physical and mental recovery.

4. If you wake up during a deep sleep cycle you will feel groggy and tired, despite having slept enough hours.

There are cell phone apps that will set your alarm to your optimal wake time.

5. If you haven’t been sleeping well, don’t worry, your body can compensate for sleep deprivation.

When you do finally go to sleep you will fall into deep sleep sooner and stay there longer.

6. Sleeping 8 hours per night has not always been how humans catch their Z’s.

Monophasic sleep is what today’s society would consider a “normal” sleeping pattern. During the industrial revolution and after the invention of electricity (lights, radios) people switched to sleeping only once per day. This was due to having more hours of working time and recreational time. Electricity allows us to easily stay up late into the night, especially now with TV, computers and cell phones to entertain us.

Polyphasic sleep involves taking many naps throughout the day. Leonardo da Vinci’s followed an extreme form of a polyphasic sleep schedule called the Uberman sleep cycle which included 20-minute naps every four hours.

Biphasic sleep
Those who practice biphasic (two-phases) sleep for a 5-6 hours during the night, and have a short nap or siesta during the day. A siesta is a short nap taken in the early afternoon, usually after lunch. Siesta is a common tradition in some countries, particularly those where the weather is warm.

Siestas are common in:

  • Mexico.
  • Greece.
  • Italy.
  • Spain
  • The Philippines.
  • Costa Rica.
  • Ecuador.
  • Nigeria.

The shorter nap or “power nap” typically lasts 15-30 minutes and will give you an energy boost to finish your day. Siestas are around 90 minutes, which equates to one complete cycle of sleep.


I feel that naturally we should sleep when we feel tired and wake up when we feel rested but not everyone’s schedule will allow for naps. If you feel great after 4-6 hours of sleep then don’t worry about it. Listen to your body and mind and sleep when it’s


Transform Your Mindset INSTANTLY with Binaural Beats

We think 50,000 thoughts per day, up to 70% of those are negative. Negative thoughts can cause chronic stress, which will change the function and structure of your brain.

In fact, every thought you have will change neural pathways and the output of brain chemicals, creating a cascade of effects (good or bad) on health and emotional well-being.

One of the most popular forms of sound technology, used for changing the brain’s vibrational state, is known as binaural beats. Binaural beats (sounds) that can induce the same brainwave state as meditation, by listening to certain tones.

Binaural literally means “having or relating to 2 ears” so if you have 2 working ears, you can sample the beats below. Don’t you feel lucky?

You can create binaural beats by playing two different tones at different pitches into each ear. This is why you should wear headphones as you listen.

The tones will play at a consistent, rhythmic manner and have powerful healing and spiritual benefits.

The 3rd frequency does not really exist. It has been created by your brain itself.


Scientist Melinda Maxfield, PhD, researched ancient tribal drum beats the drum beats used during rituals noticed that their drum beats held a steady rate of 4.5 beats per second.

This consistent beat induces a trance-like state for the tribe, due to the brain shifting into a low Theta brainwave state.

These sounds waves give you the power to manipulate your brain waves by using binaural beats.

Each brainwave frequency alters a specific state of consciousness (or state of mind).

So… do you want to try it? Sure you do! Here is a raw, binaural beat. Listen to it with headphones.

  1. When you have both headphones in (or on) your ears, play the YouTube and notice that the tones make a single pulsating sound. Now, remove 1 earphone (left or right, it doesn’t matter).
  2. You will now hear the pulsation disappears when you remove the earphone, and it comes back immediately when you put the headphone back on.
  3. When you wear both headphones, you will hear a pulsation from the 2 tones intermingling together, the brain perceives a 3rd tone from its interpretation of the left and right tones (a binaural beat).

Congratulations! You have just entrained your brain with a binaural beat!

Binaural beats cause the brain to synchronize, or entrain, itself with the beat frequency. Although, the sounds you hear do not create the brain entrainment.

Entrainment occurs because inaudible frequency tones or pulses are embedded in the sounds.The soothing sounds that you hear mask the actual carrier tones or pulses.

These carrier tones and pulses are called binaural beats and/or isochronic tones. They cause the brain to shift frequencies to match the tones. beats.pngBelow are the flavors of binaural beats from high energy, “Getting Shit Done Gamma waves” to the sleep inducing Delta tones. You’ll have to listen for at least a few minutes of the video to start feeling the effects.

So, how do you want to feel today?

Click play on the associated video of your desired mindset.

Gamma Brain Waves (32 and above Hz) the highest frequency brain waves are great for cognitive enhancement and energy.

Beta Brain Waves (16 – 31 Hz) for focused attention and heightened alertness.

Alpha Brain Waves (8 – 15 Hz) for relaxed focus, accelerated learning and getting into “flow”.

Your brain enters the alpha brainwave state almost immediately every time you close your eyes.

 The alpha state is believed to facilitate a bridge between conscious thought and the unconscious mind. Many brainwave meditations seek to induce this state.

Alpha waves are associated with relaxed wakefulness and can occur during light meditation.

Theta Brain Waves (4 – 7Hz) for inducing deep relaxation and meditation.

Delta Brain Waves (below 4 Hz) To sleep deeper, access subconscious, healing and pain relief.

Try those videos out and I’d love to hear how it went.  Enjoy!



LSD: The Cure for PTSD?

14% of the US population will suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at some point in their life. PTSD can develop after a person survives a traumatic situation or witnesses something terrifying. Common traumas are physical, mental abuse; accidents, sexual, natural disasters or combat.

Those who have PTSD typically have trouble functioning normally again after the trauma. Sufferers can transform into a person who is constantly on edge, anxious, unable to sleep, paranoid, depressed and isolated.

This fear instills isolation. Eventually leaving just a lifeless, shell of who they once were. This is the reason PTSD frequently leads to alcoholism, drug addiction and in some cases, suicide.

LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide) AKA “Acid”


LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) is a non-addictive, psychedelic drug that was discovered by Dr. Albert Hofmann in 1938. He discovered the effects of LSD in 1943, when he spilled some of it on his skin. He started feeling strange and decided ride his bike home. That must have been quite a ride!


When Dr. Hofmann got home he entered a wild (somewhat scary) mind-expanding, reality (and his wife was in for a bit of a surprise as well!) Luckily, the next day, he woke up and his mind was back to normal. He knew he must find an explanation for what had happened to him.

He began to experiment with LSD on patients and he found that

“Each individual who experiences LSD enters another reality. He enters another world seemingly even more real than actual reality. “

From the 1950s to the early 1970s, psychiatrists and researchers gave 1000’s of doses of LSD to people as a treatment for alcoholism, addictions, anxiety and depression in people with terminal illnesses.

This drug was helping people!


After the experiment, some patients described that it seemed like LSD had created more “connections” in their brain. In fact, this looks to be true.nerves-3115722_960_720

Brain Scans: On LSD vs Normal

Brain scans of people who are tripping on LSD show their brains are lit up brightly, illuminated with activity all over the brain.

Whereas the normal (placebo), non-tripping brain’s activity was only activated in few specific areas – the rest of the brain remaining dark and seemingly unactivated.Brain scans revealed that the tripper can have “visuals” through many parts of their brain, not just the visual cortex. Parts of the brain that never connected with other areas, were now communicating.

Acid Helps to Treat Mental Disorders

The subconscious mind wants to mull over the same information and do the same things, day in and day out. This keeps us stuck in life repeatedly doing automatic, core behaviors.

The reason PTSD, anxiety and depression are so hard to treat is because people are trying to cover up the disorder with pills. Surprise! That shit doesn’t work!

You must treat the core issue, or underlying reason, for the disorder.


Ideally, people who decide to trip, should think and talk about their issues with a therapist. The therapist works with them through the trip, in order for them to gain a new, more profound meaning from the experience.

Therapeutic Acid trips can alleviate depression, anxiety and help people conquer addiction.


Patients have stated that when they were tripping, they could see their issues from a new perspective and they can then gain insights into their past behaviors and reactions. They emerge with an upgraded, positive outlook on life.



Psychological disorders can affect people for their entire lives, sometimes consuming all of their quality of life. For treatment resistant people, no matter what they try, they cannot seem to get well again, LSD may be the only possible cure for them.


There is a good amount of evidence regarding the benefits of psychedelics treating psychological disorders, but we still need more. Currently, privately funded organizations are left to do most of the research.

Hopefully soon we can end the war on drugs and instead of fearing them, learn about their potential benefits.
