Not For The Faint of Heart


By Paul Nijar

We have all been spoilt through varying degrees throughout the years. Many of our needs are at arm’s reach away. Whatever it is we desire we can have. As beautiful as this sounds, it has become a problem. All this comfort has made us lazy. We have become so used to this comfort, that we will go through extremes to maintain it. Being so comfortable has made us stuck in our ways; this is a major problem. Continue reading

How to Grab Your Goals by the Horns

By Paul Nijar

January 15 is long behind us now, and by now you should either be patting yourself on your back or whipping it. This day alone is such a character defining day. Who would have thought that a day in our calendar would tell so much about an individual. Yes! I speak of this day as this is the day most people fall off the New Year’s resolution wagon.

“Hey! I didn’t fall off the wagon! I just got busy. I can get back on if I want, but I just don’t want to!” Continue reading


Have You Ever Felt Like You Been Here Before?


By Paul Nijar

We’ve all had those moments in our lives that seem so familiar. It’s like we stepped in and out of some time continuum. Those times bring us much confusion.

Happy New Year's

Happy New Year’s So Cliche

Happy new year’s….we all start this year with these kind wishes. We do it every year like clock work. So every 365 days we say it again.

This focus will keep us living our lives in an endless cycle.  How can we break free?

Focus on the number of days of the year rather than the year 2015 or whatever. Many of us have heard it takes 21 days to adapt a habit. It takes 41 days to believe in the habit and to break free of old ones.

what does 365 days bring?…mastery.  it takes 365 days to master a habit.

So to end the endless cycle we all go through every year, try reflecting on something you seek to master and then you have something new to celebrate at the start of the new year.

In the new year you are at zero again, an open opportunity to master something else!
