A short homeless story

homeless_man_on_streetWhat does a homeless person signify to you?

Sometimes it might signify someone who tries to take advantage of you, other times a person who ran out of luck. Sometimes nothing, as you pass him by, seeing him as just another piece of the background.

I’ve had a lot of encounters with homeless people, of all sorts. I don’t make a habit out of giving them all money, only to those my intuition (or instinct, if you will) is telling me that they need it. And I do that especially with those who don’t ask.

Today I was waiting in the bus station to take Continue reading

“I don’t even have time to masturbate anymore!”


I don't even have time to masturbate anymore!Those words came upon me like a bolt of lightning. It happened recently, last Sunday evening, as I was spending time with a few friends, discussing this and that.

And no, my blog isn’t about sexual issues – just in case you were wondering. Do you want it to be about sexual stuff? Just kidding. Seriously, do you? Kidding again. Let’s move on. 🙂 Continue reading

How an ant can cause an accident


ant - Razvan Costea Life CoachA few days ago, in a beautiful and sunny Sunday afternoon, I was in my car with my girlfriend and her sister, heading to a big park to rent bicycles, whilst taking a nice drive at the same time.

The traffic was light, as it is every Sunday, with the exception of a queue at a big intersection. We were moving slow, bumper to bumper, 5 meters at a time, when suddenly I noticed Continue reading

Magic happens!


Razvan Costea - Magic happensLast evening I spoke at an event, in front of almost 100 people.

The topic, set by the organizers (5MS.ro) was “The break”, and I chose to incorporate it into a story about my life, and share with the wonderful people there how I found my true path in life.

On my way to the event I was pretty nervous, and I was struggling with fear of speaking in front of all these people. The difference is, whereas on different occasions in my past I chose to let that fear control me and give up whatever I was doing, this time I chose to act, in spite of it.

I knew that deep down inside I wanted to be on that stage, and that desire was stronger than the fear. Little did I know that life would reward me in the most surprising way for this decision. Continue reading

Does Education matter?


Most of the people I know only went to school for three reasons.education

First: because everybody does it and they don’t want to be at a disadvantage, second: it seems to be the normal thing to do, and third: because their future or present employer demands it.

It may be one more reason, and that is parents pushing them to do it, but that does not always apply.

Most of the great minds in our world’s history didn’t change the world because they went to school, but because Continue reading

Being an actor in your own movie


Actor in your own movie

Actor in your own movie

Each one of us, at one moment in our life, has been a subordinate. Most of us still are, to this day. None of us likes it.

We all dream of being free to make decisions that are beneficial to us, instead of following instructions that, in most cases, are detrimental to our well-being.

We dream and dream, but fail to act.

Opportunities fly by each day, but we are so busy that most of the time we don’t even notice them.

And, when we do, we  Continue reading

Appearances


We live dual lives.

The real one and the one we want others to see.

The latter is meant to project an inflated image of ourselves so people can say: “Wow, your life is great!”. This is illustrated especially on social websites, where everybody likes to brag.

We post our absolute best pictures, our new car, the places we’ve visited, our loving relationship and so on.

However, in reality we may Continue reading
