A few years ago, we started talking about where we should retire, and we came up with a few exotic places that is remote but not isolated, with nice weather, friendly people, and all that. And then we talked about how do we transition from our work. So the topic of working from home came up and our goal was to eventually transition our work so that it can be done 100% from any location in the world.

 

So this year, the year 2020, may have been a weird one and has turned many of our lives upside down, and our daily routines have become a complete mess.

 

But this has also been the best year of my life! My dreams of many years have finally manifested! We wanted to work 100% from...

For many of us, we've been programmed, since childhood, about what we should and should not do. We've been told repeatedly in our childhood to be sensible and to behave like a good kid. What does that mean? Our parents and our teachers were programming us to behave in the way that they believe is the good way.

 

It's not that they have bad intentions. Your parents probably had the best intentions for you. I know that my parents had good intentions for me. Telling me to have good grades in school. Getting a 'B' is not good enough. I should've gotten an 'A'. I'm told, repeatedly, that to have a good life, I must get a college degree, even better if I have a master's degree. And that I should...

[This is a follow-up to Part 1 of our blog series – The Matrix: Personal Development 101]

So, did you go back and watch Matrix part 1? If you were Neo, would you choose the blue pill or the red pill? Have you thought about what kind of ‘programming’ you’ve had in your mind that’s preventing you from moving on? Are they anchors that’s preventing you from moving forward, or are they engines that drives you towards your goal?

 

Awareness is the first step to personal development. Before you can develop, you must first know what areas you need to work on.

 

But, just in case that you are debating between the blue and red pill, I have one word for you: Entropy.

 

Entropy means a lack of...

One of my favorite movies of all time is the Matrix, Part 1. Not only because Keanu Reeves is in it. It is part of the reason, of course, but also because of the revolutionary idea of the story and the transformation of the hero in the story.

 

 

Every good story has these components. The hero, who is usually the main character, the problem, the guide, the love interest, the villain and the success. The hero was always pathetic when they started. Neo started off as a moonlighting hacker. But with the guide, Morpheus, who trained and led Neo through the transformation. The love from Trinity was boundless and always supportive. With the guide and love, Neo was able to morph into ‘The One’ and finally defeat...

What Story are You Telling Yourself?

 

HI I'm Andrew from the Foolish Couple.

 

Today we are going to talk about the Thoughts and Beliefs that you tell yourself.

 

In the Success Principles by Jack Canfield, who is the author of the Chicken Soup of the Soul book series, he talks about 68 principles of success. And you can take these principles and apply them to all areas of your life and they will ALWAYS work. Whether you want to improve your career, your finances, your relationships, your health or your contributions. Whatever they are, these Success Principles will work for everyone every time.

 

As long as you work the principles, the principles will work for you.

 

You see, you are creating your experiences, your success, the quality of your relationships, and your health by your thoughts and beliefs (beliefs are no more than thoughts you have conditioned yourself to think over and over), the visual images you focus on (internally and externally), the resulting emotions they create, and your...
