Taking Your Power Back

Anyone who has dealt with a Narcissist before knows that it is a full time emotionally draining and mentally taxing job. You can never be fully prepared for it, Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) categorised as Cluster B Personality Disorders — according to the American Psychiatric Association, is a serious mental disorder where an individual has an inflated sense of self, a deep need for excessive attention, admiration and lacks empathy for others. They wear a mask of extreme confidence but underneath lies a fragile self-esteem that is vulnerable to even the slightest criticism.


One Step at a time, one foot in front of the other

Let me start off by saying I do not actually enjoy running, I don’t enjoy the physicality of it and it’s absolutely not my favourite form of exercise or sport.

Achieving discipline in areas of our lives is an arduous journey to embark on, much less master. We all have it in us to be disciplined, so why then, is it so many of us lack the staying power to stick at something worthwhile? I have been on a thousand journeys to lose weight, start that business idea, spend more time being productive and post an article a week on Medium, but I too fall short at the first hurdle and subsequently give up.

2020 was an absolute shocker, a year to never forget to say the least. Who would have thought it would go down like that? I mean, nobody could have predicted that apart from the conspiracy theorists but even they had their socks blown off with that one!

When we’re laughing, nothing else matters, all of our worries and problems seem to disappear like a balloon in the sky. It’s like laughter brings forth forgetfulness amongst other good qualities. So why is it we don’t laugh more often?


Perspective is key when dealing with immovable mindsets

We’ve all been there, that moment when you’re in a heated debate with a friend, work colleague, business partner or significant other. You’re trying to get your points across in the best way possible, providing facts to back up your statements but the other party just doesn’t seem to get it or even have the slightest interest in wanting to understand you. This can be very frustrating and often leads to difficult confrontations and anger-driven arguments.


Why 2021 is an important year for Google

The Pixel 5 was Google’s major release in October of 2020. The highly anticipated phone came and went. It was a minor drop in the phone market. It gathered decent reviews, average specs but no real USP to stand out from the giants (Apple & Samsung). All considered I am by no means saying the Pixel 5 was a bad phone. Far from it, it just wasn’t a phone people wanted.


Unlocking the key to better decision-making

You may often hear the terminologies EQ and IQ thrown around a lot, especially IQ as some deem it, the more advantageous one to have for success in life. I personally adhere to the saying “A high IQ will get you through school but a high EQ will get you through life.” The age-old debate between the two has been ongoing for some time, so which is it? Which is the more advantageous to have and why? well, my answer is EQ and I will illustrate why in this article.

Surely self-mastery over our response to emotions is a goal…


Like a Pheonix rising from the ashes, my resilience gave me my freedom

When my world came crashing down, I had the opportunity to do something I couldn’t do before, rise and stay up. I told myself, I can bounce back from adversity to reinvent myself and there was no better time than the present moment.
