Sometimes, when things get tough within our journey, it feels like every force within our body and mind prevents us from moving forward. Sometimes this feeling stays for several hours, and sometimes, it remains for weeks. And sometimes, this adverse force gets so intense that it eventually makes us quit our path. The question on everyone’s mind is: How to not quit when things get tough.

Personally, I have been on many paths that could eventually make me “successful” however, I’ve withdrawn from many of these paths because either I lost focus, or I lost hope, or something catchier came…

We all love weekends (or other days off during the week) because we get a chance to relax, step back, and cool off from the work we’ve done the week before. We need weekends to empty our minds and gain back our energy for the week ahead of us. For the past several months, I have tried different methods to get the most out of my weekends and be even more prepared for the upcoming week. After many trials and errors, I came up with the “Inverse-Weekend” technique that has been helping me improve my creativity and drive. …


“Set your goals, reach your goals, and repeat” — We hear this sentence or similar ones over again in the field of self and business development. As much as goal-setting is a vital topic, it is way misunderstood among people who are looking for improvements in their lives. It is becoming like an obsession rather than being a motivator and a guide. Goal obsession is a trap that many of us entrepreneurs fall into every now and then. Goal obsession can be one of the primary reasons why many of us don’t reach our goals!
You might say, “Well, that’s absurd…

If you’re into self or business development, then you must’ve faced some difficulties breaking a bad habit. Habits like procrastinating, digital distraction, bad sleeping routine, unhealthy eating habits, etc. These habits sometimes feel like they’re blocking your journey to become a better you. No matter how much you tried to break them, somehow, they sneaked back into your life.

During 2018, I went through a phase of attempting to break my bad habits, and breaking them seemed impossible! Sometimes, I could manage to keep away from my bad habits for a few weeks. …


This blog post might sound similar to all the other articles about how to close more deals for your business with unrealistic techniques.

I understand that you might say, every negotiation is different, and one technique can’t be applied to all of them. But, just hear me out because this technique has continuously worked for me in various situations and I have no doubt it’ll work for you too.

What I’ve used in the above paragraph is the technique that I’m about to explain to you. If you’re still reading this post, then it means that I’ve got you interested…


In my previous blog post, I talked about several years ago, before I learned about the 5-Second Pause Technique, I was the quickest decision-maker you’ve ever met! Instant decisions were my thing. I was living and breathing on instant reactions and instant answers while talking to other people. However, this bad habit got me in lots of troubles and disappointments.

As I grew older and “wiser,” I learned to pause before making any decisions. As I was practicing to pause, I noticed that the decisions I was driving in my life were better and more affluent. …


In my previous blog post I’ve written that, ever since I was a young boy, I always had a feeling of defiance and audacity. I might have looked like I was following the rules and society’s expectations on the outside but, I didn’t accept the orders deep inside. Until today, I don’t just accept something without knowing what it is and understanding it. For a long time, this part of me never made sense and, I was always confused about it until a few years ago. Then I started to look into it and learn about it. I always knew…


In my new article, I told the story about back in 2018, I discovered the benefits of waking up early for success, when I took half a year off from working as well as being involved in any projects. I was just helping a friend part-time in developing his app to have a small income. During this period, I had a lot of time on my hands to unearth things about myself that I never knew before. Before this period, I had 3 failed startups, which kicked me off the grid and made me doubt my skills. …


Recently, within my blog post, I wrote about the concept of “art of giving in business” is very new to me. Like many other people out there, my idea of growing a business was all about business and financial models and how I could “cheat” the system to gain more sales. I was living and breathing with sales funnels and catching my potential customers at the right time and with the right mindset. …
