Thoughts like “damn, why do they look so good in that pic, why can’t I look like that,” or “wow, they look so happy together, why am I so lonely and destined to never find love." We've all had these thoughts from time to time, but if you want to learn some actionable steps to take to prevent these thoughts from happening or from simply having so much power over your life click "Read Now!"

Technically, I am supposed to be writing a meditation blog post this week, but I learned an interesting lesson this week about failing and my mindset towards failing so I thought I would share.

Learn how to Fail, or else…Fail

6 minute read

You will never succeed if you are afraid of failure. You will be trapped in a mindless job, in a loveless relationship, with no goals and aspirations for the sole reason that you want to feel safe. So, do what you love, ask that person out, start that new hobby, apply for that exciting job. Because if you do not learn how to fail, you will only fail.
