Constant improvement is not easy. Whether it is a job, a better quality, or a way of life you are looking to harvest, staying on the positive side of the growth takes hard work. My whole life, I have been absorbed by worlds that have taught me how to continuously seek knowledge and regenerate myself.
In order to achieve success, you need to constantly ask yourself these five questions.
1. What Is My Unique Ability?
Every particular day, ask yourself, What is the one stuff that only I can do that no one else can? Most people stop at the shallow: I love to design, but there are enough number of designers out in the world, so I think Im not really all that different. Finding your unique ability takes hard work. You have to really look for all the things you are best at, and then find the point where they all come together. Your unique ability isnt one strength. Its the sum of all your strengths.
2. Am I Still Growing?
This is something I learned through my years captivated in the world of competitive fitness its always about growth. Who you were yesterday doesnt matter. The only thing that matters is if you are growing right now. When I check my life, I dont so much care about how many bucks Im going to make, or how many awards Im receiving. Your main focus should be on whether you are growing or not. If youre in an environment of growth, learn everything you can.
3. Am I Taking Care of Myself?
If you want to be good, really good, like Michael Jordan good then you need to live your life as if you are an NBA All-Star and you have a game against your biggest rival tomorrow. If that were your life, you wouldnt do a single thing to keep yourself from playing the best game of your life. That needs to be how you treat every single day.
This isnt a sprint, its a marathon. This isnt about some fast path to success. This is about a way of life that is going to carry you from one success to the another.
Take care of yourself. Its going to be a long road.
4. What Is the Next Skill I Need?
No matter what your hunt in life is, its important that you constantly add new skills to your toolbox. But I can surely say that any skill I have learnt out of genuine interest has led me to a good path.
Dont worry about where its going to lead. If youre interested in something, then follow that path and walk down to its end. Dont overthink it. Trust, and just focus on learning and mastering the skill.
5. What Am I Most Proud of?
It is so, so, so important to pause and enjoy your successes along the way. Whether thats something tangible, like a raise or a new car, or something intangible, like a healthier self-esteem or a newfound sense of confidence, its crucial to enjoy those moments. If you dont, you will feel like a hamster on a wheel, never taking a break, never resting, always looking for the next rewardand then the reward will come and you wont even realize it because youre already onto the next task.
Its a fine line, but its necessary for balance. Constant growth is great, but what good is it to reach for the sun if you never stop to enjoy the sun in the first place?
Be like a tree. Always grounded and at the same always growing.

What does a saber-toothed tiger have in common with a strawberry cheesecake?
In the book The Willpower Instinct, Kelly McGonigal asks this question, exploring the ways in which different threats can derail our willpower, perpetually keeping us in the stressful biological state known as fight-or-flight.
How do we run from or fight off the constant stream of temptations and distractions around us? By strengthening our self control and willpower! These are my top tips Ive discovered on the subject of willpower.
1. Take Every Opportunity to Practice Mindfulness
Its no secret! Practicing mindfulness and meditation not only improves our health, well-being, and brain functions but also can be an incredible tool to harness your willpower and self-control.
Our brain has amazing potential. We can utilize long lines, traffic, or other opportunities that would normally beget a sense of impatience from us, depleting our willpower resources, and recharge ourselves instead with thoughtfulness and deep breathing.
2. Dont Reward Good with Bad
Weve all done it. Justified eating that cookie because we worked out. Taken leeway at work because we worked hard on that last projectThe harmless rewards we sometimes give ourselves actually deplete your willpower and exhaust our self-discipline more.
In a nutshell, moral licensing is the concept that we often let our good behavior justify harmful actions. If we constantly reward our good actions with bad rewards, we train ourselves for the worst.
3. Use Willpower Like a Muscle
Willpower is like a muscle, to be taken care of, not overworked, and carefully used so it will become strong. The great thing about habits is that we have the power to shape and change them. We can use a little willpower now to reinforce a positive habit, which will save a lot of stress later on. Remember that its okay to fail in the process. Just always try again. Practice doesnt make perfect, practice makes progress.
4. Use Social Pressure in the Right Way
Things become easier when we have others to support us. We can use social pressure or external control to help us achieve our goals and strengthen our willpower in the same way. If you are engaged in a willpower challenge, it might be a good idea to turn it into a group project. The more people that share in a willpower challenge the easier it will be.
We can also use external control or pressure in the form of something that measures our progress, like an app or diary where we are accountable to track our actions.
5. Set Goals
Sometimes when we focus on advancing our careers, we suffer in the area of family and relationships. Because goals that are in conflict with each other are harder to achieve. They deplete our willpower. Sticking to a budget while quitting smoking are two goals that are far easier to accomplish and direct us toward action when paired together.
Its the composing of goals, creating more strength in your willpower, that really makes things happen. Self control starts with setting and creating the right goals.

You can type his last name with just your left hand in a matter of seconds. Because when it comes to him, it's all about making things easy.
Roger Federer entered 2017 as a 35-year-old. Before turning 36, he has already won two Grand Slams - the Australian Open in January and Wimbledon in July. But now he is 36. Men age, but Federer does not fall in that category. A man gets tired. Federer just goes through time and life like a knife through butter. Smooth, simple and effortless.
Even when he plays, he's forever fresh as though he takes a shower after every point, a power nap after every set and a sip of tea after every game. There is something about Federer. Something I haven't seen in other men. Perfection comes to him as naturally as breathing comes to us. When he was young, he seemed like a promise. A promise of a wonderful future. A future that inevitably arrived.
Him winning isn't just a habit he has, it's a habit we have too. He has been doing so for a long, long time. Clearly he knows something we don't. Behind that bandanna and wavy hair, lies the secret to 'tennis immortality'. He picks the times he wants to play now.
But his true legacy will live on in people like us. People who watched him play. People who watched him grow old and fine, like wine. If anyone who hasn't seen Federer play ever reads this, I just hope they know that there were some of us who were treated to a man who had divine powers, which he used only for good. No, he did not stop wars nor did he solve any other problem the world faces right now. And as of August, 2017, it is facing a heap. He simply played tennis.
He was a man who was kind, generous, and more often than not, had an ace up his sleeve, if you know what I mean. His forehand was to die for, and his backhand made life worth living. Like I said, he did not solve the world's problems.
But when he plays, he makes us forget our problems. In these moments, he made the world a better place.

There wasnt anything particularly hard about today. Everyones heavy sits differently, depending on the carrier of the density of it all; the feeling that rests merely in the middle of your chest, pulsing and riding your nerves into infinity. You stare it into a mirror, into a corner, into a shadow. It lurks and feeds on thoughts and breath. But, there is work to be done. There is no time for feelings. Feelings are not reckoned into tariff strategies.
This is the reason why every job should provide a mental health day. Everyone should be allotted, not just sick days, but days we are given to cope, and rest; days offered because your emotional health does not feel up to par with how you, as an individual, normally function. You should be able to take this day, or days, without having to describe what emotional state you reside in. Every employee should be given the opportunity to take the day to say no, and with that no be allowed to avoid the sarcasm of colleagues and management for not sticking it out. It should be a mandate, not only an option.
Mental health days matter. They matter because there are things that do not fit neatly into a box; you do NOT fit neatly into a box. We are seas of emotions. A death in the family is not the only reason we grieverelationships die, friends die, families split apart, babies do not make it full term.
There are feelings, events, that happen outside of bubbles and easily identifiable check boxes and societal labels. We, as a society and a people, need to create room for those who need the room; to allow space to and for those where space is so often not given. That is how a village flourishes, how a community thrives. We are the sustenance we both need and crave. So, ask your boss to give you a break. At the very least, give yourself one. You deserve it.

What is life? What are you supposed to do? Its not like babies are shipped with manuals that teaches them to be awesome human beings.
For the first time in my life, I started looking for answers because I was tired of just living/existing without purpose. I asked myself: What are the principles that people talk about, but they never follow?
Heres what I came up with until now.
1.No Strain, No Gain
We often talk about doing all kinds of crazy shit. Climb mountains, run marathons, start businesses, travel the world, write books, make movies, the list is endless.
Just think about whats on your bucket list for a second. Now, can I ask you one thing? Why havent you done those things?
The answer almost always comes down to this: Its hard, because life is supposed to be hard. Dont shy away from hard things. Instead, train yourself to become a person that can endure difficulties. No strain, no gain. If you dont strain your muscles, they get weak. If you dont stress yourself, your mental ability will decline. If you dont focus on your character, you become spineless.
2. Give more than you take
When you are baby, youre taken care of everything. Your parents provide you food, shelter, love, and if youre lucky, a lot gadgets too.
We think its normal to take. Instead of always concentrating on what you want from the world, start thinking about what you have to offer. Life is not about taking. Please, do yourself a favor, and start giving more. But dont be surprised if you also receive more.
3. Create your own path
We look at other people and view them as examples. Like example, parents, siblings, friends, boss, mentors, authors, entrepreneurs, artists. Learning from others is one of the best things that Ive done. Being humble is a good thing. But heres the catch: Youre not all those people. You are you.
That means one simple thing: Get off the beaten path, and create your own. Dont be afraid to go into an unknown direction. Go places where people never been before.
How do you know youre going somewhere new? People will likely not understand you. And thats a good thing.
4. Do whatever life expects of you
Look, life is random. Why are you born to your parents? Why do you live where you live? Why were you bullied at school? Why? Do you have the answers? I doubt it.
Instead of wishing that the situations were different, accept the circumstances of your life. No matter how bad they are.
Regardless of where you are in life, you are there for some reason. God, the universe, invisible forces.
It doesnt matter what it is. But when life expects something from you, show up and play your part.
5. Time is more valuable than money
Out of all the resources in the world, time is the most valuable resource you have. Why do we generally spend time like we have an infinite supply of it?
Do you ever stop and think about how much time you have left on this earth? Lets say you get to live to 80 years. Just do the math. Its not that long if you keep wasting your time.
Dont misuse it like you can always get it back. You can always get back the money that youve spent, but you can never get back time. Once you spend time, its lost forever.
Because these principles have one objective: Get the most out of life. And thats the only mark there is.
