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
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
Being a small coffee shop owner and waiting for your customers to walk in.
Being a newsstand employee, waiting for somebody to buy a paper or a magazine from you.
Being an office employee, waiting for your boss to give you something to work on for the day.
Waiting. Just waiting.
Meanwhile, life passes you by. Amazing opportunities fly by.
All that’s left for you is wait. For the next customer, for the next task. Until you retire.
You wonder then: What happened with my life? Was it worth spending it waiting? For what? Money? Security? Certainty?
And you regret. You regret all that lost time.
But there’s something you can do to prevent that. There’s something you can do NOW.
Do something today that you’ve never done before, or that scares you.
It’s so simple…..
Forget waiting, and just LIVE!
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
The car shop owner, a person who I know for about eight years, called me in his office to give me the estimate. He is a short fellow, not bad looking, age 39, with a bald spot, very energetic and a little overdressed for the business he is running.
Although I had known him for all this time, Continue reading
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
Life is like a game of golf:
When someone distracts you when you’re about to take a swing, you might hit the ball the wrong way and send it to the trees instead of the green.
All golf players know that it takes time and energy to get the ball out of there.
Your life is basically the same: any distraction that gets your attention takes you away fromyour path, from what you want.
Actually, most people find it very challenging to concentrate on what they want without being distracted. It’s just a matter of time until they get off track, but, with a little work and dedication, it can be done, you can keep focused.
Imagine one day waking up in a good mood, Continue reading
I believe there is no darkness, only the absence of light.
I believe that there is no bad, no wrong. There is only a stream of wellness passing through everything and everyone. I call it “THE RIVER OF LIGHT”.
This river represents the vibrations you respond to, the things you love to do, the objects you like and the people you care about, and anything else that gives you a positive state of mind.
This river, although invisible, is visible to us all during our entire life.
Despite this, most of us, the overwhelming majority, choose to watch it from the banks, from a distance, while just a few choose to jump in and be one with themselves and the Universe.
That handful of people represents those who change the world. Because of them the world has evolved, because of the Einsteins, the Edisons and all those who chose to listen to their inner voice and feelings instead of acting upon the opinions of others and the patterns set by society.
I believe that “bad” is just a word we choose to represent the lack of good, “wrong” – the lack of right, “negative” – the lack of positive.
There really is no negative, bad and wrong.

I’m not who I was a few weeks ago.
I have no past. I have no future. I only have NOW.
It all happened when I decided to travel to London for a Continue reading
