“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how” says Nietzsche, German philosopher, cultural critic, poet, and philologist. Most of the time what we do is of no importance, but why we do it is priceless. Just like that, an abstract why is more significant than a tangible what.
To have a why is to have a reason, or a goal. It is to have a star you watch every night, the star that you want to raise your hand and touch, but is too far away. Then, it seems impossible to reach that star, but how can you say the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon?

Have you ever put together an IKEA furniture? Well, I have. It is as much complicated as it is fun. There is this pile of boxes, instructions, and images. You attach little pieces one by one going step by step. And, if you do everything correctly, those little pieces become a household appliance that will be a very good use to you. On the contrary, if you do it wrong, you will have to break down all those pieces apart like jenga woods and go to step one, tail chase.
This is what business is like. Except, you don’t get any instructions, tools, images, or a help guide. Continue reading “A Vague Business Concept You Didn’t Realize You Need to Know”
Today, for the first time in a long time, I went to a bookstore and got me some books. Since I moved to Oklahoma City I was dying to go to a bookstore, but never actually had the chance. So, after breakfast, I begged my dad to take me book-shopping, and he couldn’t reject his favorite daughter, he took me there 🙂 .
They say “never judge a book by its cover” but somehow, unintentionally it is what happens with most of us. We go to a bookstore and search for a book, whichever catches our attention the first/most, we approach for it. It was what happened with me too. I didn’t have a book list to search exactly for a book, I was only searching for a book that I could enjoy.

Some days ago, I have received an e-mail from WordPress celebrating our first anniversary. 🙂 I was shocked at first, knowing a year has passed since I have launched this blog. A big. damn. year. Not too long after, I was embarrassed of myself, knowing that I have only published around ten blog posts.
I had a dream you know, I launched this blog with passion, with determination. Where the hell has that determination gone?
I set plans, do my tasks, and I give my best. But lately, I get the feeling of having A LOT on my plate. And big full plate of responsibilities and plans for myself dragged me down. But don’t get me wrong, not because my plate was full, but because I haven’t really adapted a new lifestyle for my plate standards. I can be in one place, but I tried to be everywhere. I have 24 hours a day, I thought I had more. I can never be educated enough, I supposed my knowledge would suffice. Do you get this?
If you do, and if you feel the same sometimes, here’s a tip: you better change your lifestyle.

For a long time I’ve been told that I can’t do things, because I was “just a kid” or I was “not old enough”. These comments that I was getting lead me to a point where I gave up on myself. Until recently, I was googling about entrepreneurs I found a site where there was written stories of teen entrepreneurs. All of them was pretty interesting but I was totally amazed when I read Grace Connor’s.

I get super excited when I come across some breath-taking, deep, and powering inspirational quotes. And some of you may know, like many people I am sort of addicted to reading and sharing inspirational quotes. 🙂
What is inspiration? Why do we feel inspired when we read a saying of (mostly) famous people? I believe that we have it in ourselves, it is like a trigger. And when we read a quote, it makes us come clean to the idea that something IS in fact reachable and only obstacle is us.
Experience does the job. If a person is experienced it means he/she knows something, something that can be taught. Only then, we listen to their sayings, or we care about their opinions. Because they have been there and done all that. For you. We learn by making mistakes. They have done the mistakes and giving us counsels and advice so that we don’t need to make those mistakes.
There are thousands and thousands of inspirational quotes. It’s the thing about inspiration. We can get inspired by even a word sometimes, if said by the right person. 🙂
Here I gathered for you 20 inspirational quotes from successful and well-known people.
You must have come across many of them but it is always a good option to remind ourselves.

It is a lovely afternoon here in Warsaw but I’m stuck in my bed due to my sickness. Early in the morning I was utterly bored (I am not a home-person, really) and started thinking about things, small things, silly things. It was one of the times when I just stare at the ceiling and ask myself stupid questions. But strange enough, soon I realized one of the questions I asked myself wasn’t that stupid. It was: “Why am I not blogging anymore?”. I remembered all those times my mother was telling me to write again, or my friends asking me why I stopped. But then, a more serious question popped into my head: “Why did I start?”. And here’s why:
