Listen Up! Silence Is That Secret Sauce You Are Searching For.

  • Reading time:13 mins read

In the past year, I have started off my mornings with something really special. SILENCE.

I wake up, perform my morning ablutions, and sit down on my bed or chair to stare off into space. I wouldn’t call it a meditation, but more like active day-dreaming. I sit and stare off into the white space, or close my eyes, and let my mind wander anywhere and everywhere.

It has actually become my favourite time of day. I let my mind journey to all of the different realms of time and space. In my daydreams, I can do anything and I can be anywhere. There is one difference between other people’s daydreaming and mine. I call my daydreaming active because I am quite conscious through the entire process. I pay attention to where my mind likes to wander.

When we are dreaming at night, and our subconscious is at play, there are no limitations to us and our capabilities. We are all-powerful. When I daydream during the day, and I let my mind frolic, I feel like I am listening to what my subconscious wants from life. I am listening to what I truly want from my life. In this way, I am not letting society, or my parents’ dreams for me dictate my own dreams.

Conscious DayDreaming

Have you ever daydreamed consciously? I bet not. If you did end up daydreaming, you probably thought it was a waste of time, like I used to.

[Ep 46] Trust The Process, And Let Go To Achieve True Success

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about why we should let go and trust the process.

As an entrepreneur and a traveller, I have often devised a plan, only to end up going astray.

The main lesson I have learned, is that no matter what we do, we have to keep our faith in what we cannot see and trust that we will be ok no matter what happens!

Life is a journey, so we better take the ride and enjoy it, without worrying constantly about the outcome.

No matter what your projects or goals are, just commit to the work and trust the process!

If we allow life to reveal itself through us, and consent to everything that happens to us, we will worry less and be happier.

[Ep 45] Slow Down Especially When You Feel Like Rushing

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about how slowing down will get you ahead, even better than rushing all the time.

We all compare ourselves to others at some point. As a result, we feel like we are not doing enough.

We get carried away doing activities for the sake of it, rather than focusing on what matters and what is truly important to us.

We end up trapped in a cycle of having to rush even more, amplifying and bringing more stress into our life.

It has been showing scientifically that humans are unable to multi-task. Our brain only holds one thought at a time. That is how it functions. When we multi-task, our brains are moving from task to task really fast, so that we think we are multi-tasking. It has been shown that multi-tasking causes us to be less productive than when we concentrate on one task at a time.

[Ep 44] Un-Smudge That Mask To Discover Your Authentic Self

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about why reconnection with our authentic self is important.

Being yourself seems like a simple statement to follow: wake up and do what you want to do, without fear of judgement.

But, in reality, we often tend to restrain or suppress our authentic self in order to fit in, without even realizing it.

“Ourself” varies according to the situation: in front of our parents, friends, clients etc. These invented selves are normal, yet they make it tricky to be aware and reconnect with who we truly are.

Today, I know within myself that I am a writer, but it hasn’t always been this way.

I want to share with you some insights into my discovery, or more specifically, my rediscovery.

[Ep 43] Digital Nomading Stretches My Comfort Zone Limits

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about how digital nomading has completely changed the way I do things.

I used to be afraid of a large variety of things, which led me to have a tiny comfort zone with very little space for risks and challenges.

However, leaving the 9-5 routine for a more suited location independent lifestyle, has led me to expand my comfort zone to a point where its limits have become blurry.

“There are very few things it doesn’t encompass”. Comfort zones become really apparent when we live lives of quiet and solitude, not trying anything new, and getting stuck in a box of our own making. That box becomes smaller and smaller as we grow older, so that we become more and more suffocated. Eventually, that box chokes us out and kills our soul.

Are you in a similar situation at all? Stop doing this to yourself. Try something new that you’ve never tried before, something that would completely stretch you and make you a new and bright person from the inside out.

[Ep 42] A Single Risk Begets More Risks In A Cascade

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about creative risks and why it’s important to go outside our comfort zone.

We all have our personal boundaries, surrounding our routines and what is familiar to us.

Why do we get so comfortable with the common? Why are we so afraid of the new and interesting? Making the move to digital nomading has allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone. By quitting my job to follow my dreams, I have challenged myself to things I wouldn’t normally do.

“In that mindset, I become this person who looks at everything and thinks, yeah, I can do that!”

In my head, if I can move to Chiang Mai to start my own online business, then I can do anything. I’m the person that I’ve been aspiring to be all of my life – that courageous, bold, beautiful, bright and shiny human that is going to take over the world.

[Ep 41] My Move To Digital Nomading And Chiang Mai

  • Reading time:2 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about my lifestyle and why I moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I was living in Toronto, Canada, for many years. Even though I loved this city, especially during summer time, I was feeling somehow out of place.

I was building my own business and wanting to expand, giving it a chance to grow properly and prosperously.

Moving to Chiang Mai has been the best decision I could make, from a professional point of view, as well as personal.

The DN (Digital Nomad) community here is fantastic. It is very easy to meet and connect with like-minded people.

The food is delicious and cheap, Thai people are as helpful as they are kind, and the city itself provides a great infrastructure for location independent individuals and an idealistic lifestyle.
