My Birthday







Some people look at birthday as a celebration toward life, While I look at my birthday as timer towards death...

Woa that sounds... pretty dark, but in my reality it is not. See how I look at it is a reason to cherish all my time in this world.  I live in a country of ample opportunity. Where there is enough opportunity to fill each moment with beauty, love, and happiness.

This may sounds deep, but it's not.  If you break it down it just doing more thing that I enjoy and my birthday is looked at as a milestone. Every year I expect to see personal growth, battlescars, new adventure, new friends, even new milestone. So what does my 24th birthday represent.

It represents inner peace and acceptance of who I really am. Not the facade that I aim to be. This past year I truly got to know who the person I am and the person I am becoming. It allowed me to capture emotional intelligence and to fight some of the demons, that were holding back. More importantly I taught me, how to be unapologetically me.

So how did I celebrate it this year? By forgiving my shortcomings and to become more focuse on my personal goals.

So the conversation starts here, What does your birth really mean to you and Why do you celebrate?

Failure is the best teacher....or someone else's success is.

 
  The most interesting thing happen to me, a good friend of mine just celebrated the launch of their business. The reason this is interesting is because when he started, nobody believed in him. He started a business with no knowledge about marketing, contracts, information about the products he needed, the industry or even entrepreneurship. He legitimately sat down and said I want to do a sound recording business and did that.  As I sit here and look at him because he launched without this information, he saw it on youtube and decided he wanted to do it. So I thought about how I failed myself as an entrepreneur and took these three life lessons from him happen to me, a good friend of mine just celebrated the launch of their business.

1. The crazier the better
 Just because it sounds crazy doesn't mean you shouldn't try it. If you want to do it, do it. The beauty of modern day entrepreneurship it allows you to come up with an idea, test it out and if it works then continue, and if it doesn't then try something else. With more and more resources becoming available, you can start it with minimum risk.works then continue, and if it doesn't then try something else.

2. Waiting on my ideason my ideas
They say anybody can come up with ideas, but how many will act on them. The world is constantly changing, which is causing information to becoming outdated. This is why waiting on yo ideas are never a good thing because someone else is going to take them. There is never going to be a right time to start. I guarantee you,  we all had an idea, waited on it and saw someone execute it. You can  wait if you want to, but don't be surprised if someone  takes it from you.


3. Confidence
 This is the biggest cliche in the whole wide world, but this is so true. Whenever I would come up with an idea, I would just wait on it. Let years and years go by before finally starting on it and then lose  enthusiasm for it.The confidence will help  when you start to feel overwhelm and anxious about pursuing your ideas. It will help you deal with the millions of mistakes you are  going to make and the thousands of no's you are going to hear. Its is going to be there when nothing is going right and when everything is going wrong. Confidence is going to help you raise your bar and help you make a comeback. It will be the second voice when you are comparing yourself with someone else who is successful. That voice will tell you all  the reasons why you also can be successful.

They say inspiration comes from what we internalize, maybe the biggest lesson I learned from my friend internalize my progress and to OUTSOURCE EVERYTHING. Well. that that that that that that is  another story completely.

Oh 2016, Are you my year?

In the year of 2015, I let life dictate to me how I was going to live. I let every negative and scary experience define my choices and dreams. I let my environment control my hopes and I let the wrong people control  my heart.

By the end of 2015, I felt destroyed and empty. I could not find anything to look forward too, even though I was heavily invested in self-development. I didn't want to figure things out, I just wanted to give up.  I wanted to be stable, happy, and motivated every day. If the year 2015 has taught me anything, it has taught me that I have come further than I was yesterday. That Rome was indeed in fact not built in a day.

 With that being said I have decided to make 2016 my year of learning and self-love.  To fulfill  this year with both pain and pleasure. To live without limits and to fly without wings.

I constantly aim towards my goals, to enjoy all the precious moments and to love myself through all my own personal struggles. To celebrate the small victories in my life and to honor my support system. I have come through alot of hopeless situations and refuse to let them define my own success. It is in the year 2016, I have decided that yes, you are going to be my year.

Why being busy is not helpful









I am a full-time college student, who also work and pursue other various hobbies on the side. I understand what being busy feels like. In fact, the top things I hear from other students are that they are busy.

In fact, I went around my campus today and asked other students for one minute of their time.

The majority of their responses were that they just did not have the time. Now I completely understand we all have lives, but there is this myth that being busy equals productivity. 

You can productive without being busy.  You can be busy without being productive. For example, I am only busy because I love Netflix, so I procrastinate on everything. This is an old habit, but because I added more to my schedule than it became a bad habit. 

Another thing,  that I will love to point out is picking and choosing what will demand your time. Time is the only thing that you can't control, but you can manage it.  So being busy with things that do not help you towards you, is a waste.  For example, if you work like three jobs and are a full-time student, but school is more important to you. Find a job that will pay you what you need or take fewer units in school, so you can do well in school. 

After many trials and error, I have finally found that being busy is not the same as being productive. Time is always being wasted if you are not doing things that will lead you to happiness. My own definition of productive is anything that will lead you there.

Life lesson: How to focus

Inspirations can come  from the very simplest thing. It might come from seeing a very expensive purse on Instagram or it might come from a conversation you hear in class. My inspiration comes from the simplest things. I was watching a youtube video about minimalism. The idea is to only keep the things that you actually will use and to get rid of all the things that can cause a distraction. 

Living an era where there is so much to do and not enough time, I always contemplate how much time I am wasting. I chose minimalism because I rather run a race toward happiness than to walk in line with penguins. 

 With so many different type of lifestyle out there, what is yours?
