Beware of People Who Promise You the World – Self Improvement Article

A friend recently asked me, “What’s a red flag that most people wrongly interpret as a positive thing?” It was a great question and an answer immediately came to mind: those who promise too much. I see people fall for the “over-promising trap” very often. They meet someone who is super nice to them, treats them well, and promises the world to them. Then they inevitably get burned and blind-sided… They think, “I never saw this coming! He was so…

The Danger of Creative Destruction – Life Optimizer – Self Improvement Article

I’m currently reading Why Nations Fail by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson. The book is about how nations throughout history reached prosperity or poverty. In essence, nations reach prosperity through innovations that bring them to new economic heights. The Industrial Revolution in the eighteenth century is a prime example. Such innovations have a “negative” effect, though: they cause creative destruction. The new replaces the old. As a result, many people lose their jobs if they can’t keep up with…

Pico Iyer on Finding Beauty in Impermanence and Luminosity in Loss – Brain Pickings – Self Improvement Article

Rilke considered winter the season for tending to one’s inner garden.

The Power of Proving Yourself Wrong – Self Improvement Article

One important attitude behind self-growth in any area of life is: always be open to the possibility that you are wrong about something. Because only by admitting you’re wrong can you truly learn, grow, and change yourself. My favorite way to prove myself wrong is to play “devil’s advocate” toward my current beliefs. I assume the opposite of what I believe is true, and I begin to search for facts and evidence that support this opposing view. Often when I…
