One night in 2007, a random guy offered to pay me if I helped him talk to girls. From 2008 until 2011, I was a full-time professional dating coach for men. By 2013, I had begun writing about larger cultural issues — gender relations, happiness, ambition, life purpose, and cultural perspectives I had gathered while living in various countries around the world.

Learning How to Eat Elephants We have all, at some point, fallen prey to “New Years Resolution” death bug, where the ambitious goals we set in January are already a distance memory by February. I believe the problem lies with the fact that we try to take on these huge “goals” all in one go. They say if you want to eat an elephant, break it down into small chucks.

Par1s How To Walk Through Walls In 7 Steps Everyone wants to follow their passion. I want to follow mine. I hope you want to follow yours. But how often have I said to myself one of these excuses: “I can’t right now because” , or “I’m not good enough because…”, or “I have a foreign accent” and I put myself in a prison that I created and I lock the doors behind me. How do we break down the wall that we, through our “education”, “culture”, “backgrounds”, etc, put up brick by brick for ourselves. When I was growing up in Argentina, people were disappearing right off the streets and never returning because they dared to break down the wall. The wall is not really a wall, it is something much more harmful and solid than that, it is our inner saboteur, and it tends to appear in the form of a thought, it may sound like this: I don’t have the right credentials (schooling, teachers, corporate blessing, etc)I’ve never done it beforeI need technical skillsMy spouse would be upset at meI have to pay my bills so I can’t! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

How To Install a Power-Up Button On Your Body For the last few months I have been habitually drawing a thin circle on the top of my left hand. The idea was that every time I noticed this circle, I would be reminded/compelled to return to a present, zen state. This worked so well that I decided to have it tattooed on a few nights ago. I’ve since discovered the immense potential (and fun) of attributing specific ‘powers’ to parts of your body or objects. Read on to understand what I’m talking about! Placebo is Powerful Thanks to the power of belief, you can can turn anything into a power-up button of any kind. Examples: 1) Consciousness Injection Whenever I notice the tattoo, I press on it with one finger and pretend that I have just received a huge intravenous injection of consciousness/energy/alertness. I am now infinitely more aware of my surrounds, my thoughts and my emotions. 2) Personality Switch James Bond is my hero.
