Wisdom is mastering restraint:

1) don’t overreact:- give the right amount of time, energy & emotion.

2) don’t over consume:- food, media, alcohol or books.

3) don’t over talk:- never gossip, badmouth, or argue.

4) don’t overthink:- stop judging, regretting & worrying.
5) don’t overpromise:- underpromise and over deliver instead.

6) don’t overshare:- live a private life, people ruin things.

7) don’t overindulge:- unchecked pleasure seeking will dull your senses.

8) don’t overcompensate:- know your worth and waste no time proving it.
9) don’t get overconfident:- shun narcissism and recklessness, seek more clarity instead.

10) don’t get overexcited:- maintain equanimity & good judgement always.

Listen to sad music when you are happy, and vice versa.

People naturally use music to intensify their current mood.

I believe music should be used to neutralize moods.

Equanimity is a virtue!

This is the art of staying balanced emotionally - ideally without the help of nature.
Naturally - no one stays happy forever, and no one stays sad forever.

1 - Find your voice:

Introspect a little

- Can you educate / entertain (or both)?

- What message do you want to share with the world?

- What’s your most natural way to communicate (audio, visual or written)?

- What does your ideal audience look like?
You might have to dig into your childhood to find your repressed abilities.

For example this was me at age 12 speaking my inspirational truth.

Things You Must Stop Doing To Be Successful

(A Thread) 🪔
Feeling entitled:

Entitlement is a delusion rooted in laziness, selfishness and foolishness.

The universe never rewards the undeserving...
Playing the victim card:

Self-pity is the easiest way to prolong your misery.

It’s not the cards you are dealt that matters, it’s how you play.

The key to building a strong self image is to be indifferent to both insults & compliments.

Insults poison you, compliments imprison you.

👇🏾Keep reading
Remember that time someone said something good about you and you started trying to impress them even more?
You became more self-conscious around this person, scared to make the slightest mistake that could ruin their image of you.

Consistently following trends is a sign you aren’t absolutely clear about your personal mission.

It’s disheartening to go far, only to realize you ran the wrong way.
Clarity is paramount.

Unfortunately a lot of people in their 30s / 40s are clueless about this.

Funny how school makes us choose life career paths at age 14!
Anyways there’s not a clear cut process to self discovery, nor is there any deadline.

If you are in your 20s:

use any method (scientific, spiritual or psychological) for self discovery.

Trial by error works too, it just take longer.
