Stop fighting and relax. Instead of trying to confront obstacles head on, look for ease. Can you infuse confrontations with love? Bring fluidity into challenging situations? Maybe you feel stuck. Sometimes desired outcomes happen as a result of less effort, not more.

How to create your future

Last weekend my team and I organized the first free outdoor film festival in Pokhara, Nepal. From crowdfunding to logistical planning, we spent months outlining how the event would run. Through hard work, grit, and perseverance, we turned what was once a dream into reality: Over 400 attendees enjoyed films in three different locations throughout the city.

Be who you are

Without apology

 

Sensitive observer

Fierce warrior

Over the top performer

Quiet recluse

Lover

Fighter

Advocate

 

Certain people will be drawn to you

Others will be repelled

 

You will not make everyone happy

You will hurt some

Disappoint others

Fail to meet expectations, your own and the world’s

 

Don’t lose your spark

 

Find what makes you come alive

What makes your spirit sing

Your pulse quicken

 

Even when all others doubt you

Stay the course

 

Your uniqueness is powerful

Wonderful

And magnificent

 

Like you

 

Your bravery

Want to leave a lasting impression? Do this.

The first kind, for obvious reasons, is worthless. This kind of guilt will trick you into thinking you are worthless. It robs you of your most present and precious moments and kills your confidence.

The second…

Strike while the iron is hot

Success is complicated. Failure can be easier to unpack (and accept); a boot stomping out a potential future. Success, however, leads into a winding, mystifying unknown. This is scary to many people and for good reason.

When things start to go right, how do you respond? Do you take credit or attribute some outside force — the right place at the right time, a lucky draw, someone else’s connections,…

Quality connections

Gone are the days when you attend networking events with a stack of business cards, trying to pass out as many as you can. The most seasoned professionals know that quality, not quantity, matters when it comes to relationships and networking.

If you’re trying to make an impression, ask thoughtful questions. Listen. And be curious.

A meaningful connection is worth far more than a printed business card.

P.S. There’s one seat left…

The risk of vulnerability

Vulnerability is associated with weakness and inferiority, yet exposing your true self requires strength and conviction.

The future is uncertain, and there’s no telling how events will pan out.

Find the courage to live your best life — truly, freely, authentically.
