Knowledge vs Motivation. You are what you eat.

Knowledge vs Motivation Which one do you think is stronger? Is it more important to have knowledge about how to do the things in the right way or the motivation to complete a task no matter the circumstances? Knowledge is around 5 times weaker than motivation. The passion and motivation will figure out the way! The problem is that the knowledge about how to do something does not necessarily motivate you to grab the bull by the horns and complete the task. Your attitude is the strongest indicator that there will be a the clear connection between your actions and results they lead to. Let’s take an example. Everybody knows that we are what we eat. We know that the food that we put in us has a tremendous impact on our bodies and our health. Even so,  people are still smoking, still drinking, still eating tons of hamburgers and “energetic garbage” (the things that gives energy but lacks nutrition).

3 Rules of The Power of Spoken Word

Sometimes people deeply underestimate the power of words.  Some people realize this when they have children. Understanding cam come when we correct our kids’ behavior in the same way that our parents corrected our words and behaviors.  It is in these moments that some peopel realize why they are the way you are and why you are not the way you would like to be. The power of  spoken word. From early childhood we are told to behave, think or act the certain way. This program is instilled onto us by our parents with constant repetition of certain phrases. If you are lucky, these words bring you positive character traits like confidence, motivation, inspiration and  love. If not, these words could be the seeds that plant secret fears in your mind. However, now you are a grown up person, so try to choose the people around you wisely (Read the 2 part of F.R.I.E.D.S. post) because according to Jim Rohn, American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker (and I agree with him), “we are the average …

“Why do we fall?”

This is one of my favourite motivational videos and speeches and the answer on the question “Why do we fall?”.  I’m convinced it could motivate a dead person to wake up and keep fighting. When I am in the gym on the treadmill and I feel like I am done;  that I have no energy left and I need to stop, I just put on this music and start running even faster than before!  Here is this magical video with magical text. Enjoy! []

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (Part two) Who are they?

What a choice!? – Some of you might say. But choosing friends, the right friends in your life has a great importance.  People have a tendency to become similar to the people they hang out with: lifestyle spending habits, interests, goals, (or lack thereof), attitude towards sports and fitness – everything matters. There are different types of friends: 1. The friends you meet via job, studies or through going to the same gym/trainings/etc. You are quite close with these people since you share common interests: working or studying together. But when these processes are over the friendship might disappear. However, there is a chance that it will last a lifetime. “+ “These people share your passion or professional interests – that is a huge plus, use their support, motivation and knowledge. “-“Maybe you are not that close, sometimes it is better to differentiate people. 2. The friends you go out with. Life is so busy so when you need to go out somewhere and blow of some steam, you know who the “party-girl” or a “mingle-boy” …

F.R.I.E.N.D.S (part one) The Story of Agnes

Friendship is such a huge and interesting subject that I cannot stop writing and rewriting about it again and again. I do not like long texts and always try to keep my posts in the range of one page A4 format, but there is just so much to say about F R I E N D S. I decided to do 3 posts in a row and I chose to elaborate on quotes by F. Dostoyevsky  for todays subject. The author of Crime and Punishment will share his wisdom about life and friendship with you, my dear readers. Choosing friends, the right friends in your life has a great importance. People have a tendency to become similar to the people they hang out with: in lifestyle spending habits, interests, goals (or the absence thereof), attitude towards sports and fitness, eating habits, etc. It’s likely that we cannot see the the subtle influence of our friends taking place, but as the years pass, we “wake up” and analyse our habits and changes in tendencies.  It can be quite shocking …
