1. You don't have to be sorry for feeling what you feel

2. If you think you can change someone, you're wrong. Change must come from the self and from within.

3. Just because you're not perfect, doesn't mean that you're not worthy of love.
4. Being valued feeds the soul. Being wanted feeds the ego.

How a 7-Day Challenge
Helped Me Defeat my Demons

5 years ago I did the impossible.
I went from 0 to Hero.

7 Days = 1024 Push ups

// Mini Thread //
I once hated push ups.
I couldn’t even do 5 push ups straight.

I had to change something:

So one day I said to myself
“I’ll do 100 push ups every day”

And that's exactly what I did.
On the first day, it took more than 20 sets.
On the 2nd day it took 16 sets

On the 3rd day it took 14 sets

On day 6 I did over 300 push ups

To get to 1024 in total

But do you guys and gals know the best part?

Not the pushups, but the fact that I defeated 7 of my own Demons.

Here are 7 things which I learnt:

10 Keys for Limitless Abundance

// A 15K THREAD // 🙏

“When you are grateful, fear disappears,
and abundance appears.”

-Tony Robbins

Inspired by @FI_imagineer & @Yasi_Zhang
@FI_imagineer @Yasi_Zhang When we hear the word abundance, many of us think only of money.

The secret to true abundance is to “have plenty” in all aspects of our life.

Not just financially.

Money is the manifestation of energy, but there's more.

How can you live a more abundant life in every way?
@FI_imagineer @Yasi_Zhang 1. Develop an Abundance Mindset

“We have more of what we truly need,
And need less than we think, we need.”

What good can you do, today, to change for the better?
What can you do to get closer to your goals?
What makes you happy?
What are you grateful for?

What You Should've Been Grateful For
10 Power Thoughts

// A THREAD //
You had a safe & challenging job, yet you always wanted more.

Not more challenges, but LESS work & MORE money.

But now you don’t have a job, NO money, because “you’ve been replaced”

Either by a Bot or a younger worker, very happy to receive a quarter of your wage.
But, instead of looking for solutions, you complain even more.

Bills keep piling up.

Your family won’t admit it,

But they’re better off without you.

You’re a lost case, and a hopeless one at that.

9 Phrases To Skyrocket Your Relationships

1. “Do you want me to simply listen?”

A question is a great way to flip the script.

Put the ball on their side.

And being prepared just to listen, just to be there for the other person, with your undivided attention, now that’s a lifehack.
2. “Tell me more.”

I haven’t stopped for 10 minutes & you still want more?

If listening is a life hack, this puts you in another galaxy.

You’re showing true concern, and true care.
