Book review

What i think of Ryan holiday’s book (The obstacle is the way).

The book started with an old story, when Marcus Aurilus the emperor of the roman empire set down to write for himself.

Our actions may be impeded…
But there can be no impeding our intentions or our dispositions. Because we can accommodate and adapt. The mind adapts and converts to its own purposes the obstacle to our acting.

This book based on the practice of stoicism, which means looking to our problems in a different way, and deal with life adversities. It’s about not stopping in a front of the problem, and learn how to face it, and make it on our way.IT’S A BOOK WHERE WE ARE GOING TO LEARN ABOUT HOW TO DEAL WITH FAILURE BY USING OUR MENTAL POWER.IN HE’S BOOK RYAN PROPOSED TO FOLLOW SOME PRECEPTS TO REVOLUTIONISE OUR LIVES,If we want to talk about STOICISM, we will say is the a way which we use our mental to keep the difficult moment strong. It’s when we don’t see problem in our life as problem, it’s when we see the obstacle in our way as a different opportunity, and not to quit. It’s a philosophy that held the principles of logical thought to reflect a cosmic reason instantiated in natureRyan holiday choose to deal with the obstacle in his book in three PART the first part:1_PERCEPTION: is how we see and understand what accros around us.2_ACTION: is a commonplace, it’s persistance and flexibility, the thing which define us, is acting with deliberation, boldness and persistence. It’s the solution and the cure to our predicament.3_WILL: is our internal power which never can be affected by the outside world, is what we depend on when agency has all but disappeared.What i think of this book?The book is an awesome reading. I never taught that i will be interested by this kind of books i mean business/psychology books, beside this reading is a real push to move on and start what ever you want to do with your life, or to face the thing that stop you.Also There is a lot of good example/stories of people who decided not to quit to their emotions.John D rockefeller who saved his money when a massive national financial crisis hit Cleveland. Watched what other did wrong and got rich in a recession.Ghandi played to his weaknesses and turned the British empire’s military against it an some other people who did not accept the depression…This book could help to recognise our weakness, and propose some ways to turn that weakness into greatness.It’s true that the book it’s only three part but it contain 32 chapter each chapter complete the other for exemple the first part start with Recognize your power and it end with prepare to act.The only thing that i could say, is this book is so good it’s only need to be read carefully, because there is lot of stories out there. Personally i needed time to get it because there’s a lot of lessons to learn and lot of technique to remember especially if you want to know your weakness to face life or want to start your own carrer there is a lot of thing that you need to learn about yourself in this book and lot of exemple who would help to make the obstacle your way.

SOME GOOD RESOLUTIONS.

“We want to do it all at once but we can’t”, Yes i’m talking about these peice of paper that we write full with 20 or 30 good resolutions for the new year

I didn’t write it this year and i wasn’t exited about it because i knew that i will wake up the first day in 2018 saying it’s just an other day.

Taking good resolutions is knowing the good ones for you, is knowing what do you really need into your life.

I know that we all added to our list that we have to start eating healthy this year and whenever we see a piece of cake in front of us we pretend that we never make that decision.

Taking good resolutions is knowing what you really need to feel your life perfect, what’s the desicion that will make the other desicions easy, let’t say that if you want to started a healthy lifestyle and you don’t wake up early it’s not going to work.

How to take good resolutions? or how to find the perfect promise to yourself:

~As i said before you have to pick the perfect goal/promise for you. The thing that you need into your life to be wonderful, and be serious about it. If you think that you have to start running every day before going to school or work, because you think that it will helpful to stay focus for the whole day and be productive, go for it, i know it will be tired but you have to keep it serious, I’m telling you a secret, our brain needs only 21 until 30 days to getting used to a new habit.

If you give up the first week don’t blame nobody, and dont come with excuses it’s your fault i know that it’s hard to take the challenge, and keep it. But it’s part of the challenge it’s a part of being honest to yourself and being serious.

~Find a good plan: for me, i used to try doing everything at once, i didn’t pay attention that it’s not going to work. That’s why i started by fixing three main goals every month, and i note these goals every end of the month. And see how I’m progressing .

~Use a reminder: I’m still using goal map, it’s best app for me until now. It has a lot of goals you only have to select the one for you, and it will remind and motivate you with some quotes everyday, beside there is a section where people change their experience and give advices. Check their website and you can find the links for the app https://goalmap.com/fr

And if you really want to know more about the whole thing, I’m sharing with you guys this link. As you know I’m not a professional yet :

I used to be one of these person who love to be a drama queen, and let the drama control me, with time i learned that it’s normal to fall in bad times, it’s part of us.

we know that perfect doesn’t exist, and when we got into the imperfection we look around to see the brilliance part in others lives to sale every beautiful moment we had and buy a miserable life.

If there is something that i learned is that i have the right to be mad, i have the right to scream out loud when i don’t feel okay. But i don’t have the right to stop my life and live in hell.

Beside that I’m here, and it’s all matters I’m here and i won’t stop.

Like everyone else i choose my road and i walk my line like most of us and things comes to my way to and change it and i stop and i become unable to continue because it’s not what i was expecting.

It’s not my fault. I’m not responsible of what comes to my way, what life put on my road. But i’m responsible for my reaction to it.

I’m here, i exist. And i’m here, i need a break. It’s what i say when i feel down, and it’s true. to get what i mean i’ll tell you a little story, I was talking to a friend and i was just in the begining of my road, i was complaing about stupid things acting drama queen and feeling like hell.

I felt so stupid, because i just started, i wsn’t thinking about time, and that i have to stop for taking a breath. I focused on success and i complain, and i let the drama control me.

I knew that it’s okay when these stupid things comes to my road. I know that i’m walking right and it okay when i stop, or start all over it’s totally okay.
If i’m writing this, it’s because i want to remind you to that you are here. You are not stopping you are just taking a deep breath and you need more time.

Find Your Place…

Passion is that strong emotion that you have for someone or something. it’s when you appreciate something, love it so hard and commit with it.

Some of us think that succes lead to passion, while the truth is that passion lead us to be successful. The secret is to find the thing that you were born to do, or simply find what are you good at and what you love to do. If you like to dance hit the floor or learn how to do it, if you love making food make a mess in your kitchen, and if you love writing match your pen with your imagination…

Beautiful things begin with admiration.

Find what you like be passion about it and make it your niche why not.

The best way to find your passion in life, is to notice those things that you are curious about, there is a small things in our lives that we never tried, but we love when we see others doing them and we wish to be good at these things. Let me explain it, let’s say that you are intrested by these pages of photography or guitar covers in youtube ect. and you think that you want to do this or you want to give it a chance, be serious about it, this could be your passion.

Beside, these things that we do in secret and we are afraid to show them to the world because we dont want to be judged for what we do, or afraid to not be liked these little things could be your passion, give them chance and show them to the world, it’s okay if they don’t get it.

New things could help you either to find your passion never stop trying.

Ask yourself about:

The only matters here, is to do what make you feel happy, i know that most of us live for their family and friends. to make them proud or don’t have time to find time to do what he/she want to do. busy by raising a children, or working, or studying… And sometimes we have to do what they want or they dont want us to do what we want. But when we love something we have to find a way fight for it. Never stop, be who you are until it comes true. 《You know passion when you fight for it》.

It is the reason why i had to re-inspire my life. And refresh my goals, you know we all have those days where our brains enjoy doing nothing.” The main idea of the blog is to threw motivation around.

In every article we just try to put in our lines some hope and positive thoughts to refresh these goals and keep forward. By sharing our little tools”.

  • The first thing i did, was writing a letter to myself about how blessed i’m and how lucky to wake up every single morning breathing, and for how powerful i am for not giving up.
  • I set a second list with the same old goals, adding the question why i really want this and does it worth to fight for it.

Book review

What i think of jen sincero’s book, You are a badass how to stop doubting your greatness and start living an awsome life.

You are a badass is the self-help book for people who desperately want to improve their lives, but dont want to get busted doing it.Its whta’s book saying for me, it’s a window to see yourself in a diffirent way it’s an opportunity to remaind yourself how great you are, and what you are able to do.And it’s explain our relationship with so many things like fear, and how our enviromment can’t be supportive some times.Jen sincero talked about things to improve our lives about how the big snooze or drama could stop us to not see the bright side of us, beside not to care about what othres thinks of us.And how to let go… She wasn’t only talking with those people who underestimate theirselves or their greatness, and those who try to improve their lives for making it better.The book is for everyone if you think that your life is cool you have to read it too.The most things i loved is how jen sincero share her little stories and the way she learned from them also the she talk to the readers for example:

So if you finally decide to quit your soul-crushing job and start the pastry shop of your dreams, be not upset if a track drive through your front window into your scones.Instead of taking this as sign that you shouldn’t have opened your shop take it to mean taht you’re ridding yourself of your big snooze and moving in the right diriction》.

The main idea is that you deserve a better life even if you are doing the best of you deserve more.and it’s a source of inspiration to try new things.Jen sincero suggest five part with twenty-seven chapitre to reach the glorious life and to find your inner badass and let it shine.
My favorite quote in the book are:

  • If you want to live a life that you never lived you have to do things you never done.
  • Its not your fault that you’re fucked up.Its your fault if you stay fucked up…
  • What comes out of your mouth comes into your life..

Get inspired and break your rules by 6 rules (arnold schwarzenegger)

  • 《 You can’t do it,
  • Its not for you,
  • Your project is doomed to failure,
  • It doesn’t matter to try,
  • Its not for you,
  • You are too shy,
  • Looooser
  • Not so pretty…》

You will hear these things for sure we are surrounded by people and some of them aren’t so supportive and sometime their words can turn our to be real daggers and if you are not moving on you can’t win. The secret is only to stop hearing what they are saying and keep beliving on yourself and you will.Arnold Schwarzenegger The majority of the world knows this actor but many people don’t know that he is also a businessman. He was already a millionaire at the age of 22 even before he had collected several million dollars thanks to his films.Arnold shares six secrets of his success secret rules you may get inspired by oneRule nº1 belive on yourself no matter what others may think Believe in your abilities, your talents in your courage. Allowd yourself to be marvelous be the one you want to be. Rule nº2 Breaking the rules. We have so many rules in life. I say I’m breaking the rules. Not the law, but break the rules.Think for yourself, act for yourself, do not be afraid to be different, believe that your path is the right one, do not be afraid to believe what you are, you are not forced to enter a mold, make your own way. Rule nº3 Do not be afraid to fail. I was always ready to fail in all that I could undertake. You can not be paralyzed by the fear of failure or you will never be able to surpass yourself. If you continue to exceed yourself because you believe in yourself and your vision and you know that it is the right thing to do then success will come. So do not be afraid to fail. Thomas Edison“I did not fail. I simply found 10,000 solutions that did not work. “Testing is a part of life, behind every failure there is a strength and always the courage to have taken the risk to take action, and so many experiences that helps you to grow. Rule nº4 Do not listen to negative people. How many times have you heard that you cannot do this or that because it has never been done before? I love it when someone tells me that no one has ever done that before because it means I’m the first. So do not pay attention to people who say this can not be done.Surround yourself with positive people who will encourage you to achieve your goals.Rule nº5 Work tirelessly. You do not want to fail because you have not worked hard enough. I never wanted to lose a competition or lose an election for not working hard enough. I have always believed that no stone should ever be left unturned.

Mohammed Ali, one of my great heroes, gave a great response in the 1970s when he was asked, “How many sit-upsdo you do? He replied, “I do not count my sit-ups. I only start counting when the pain sets in because it is only at that time that it really matters. “. That’s what makes you a champion. And that’s the attitude to keep all the time.

Rule nº6 Give something back. Whatever path you take in your life, you must always find time to give something new to your community, your state or your country. Here are the 6 rules of success, Mandela said 《 I learned that courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to defeat it》.So, do you dare to vote for your heart to break the rules without worrying about what others will think. One of the biggest regrets of people at the end of their lives is that they didn’t had the courage to live their lives in accordance with what they really want. (By.S)
