What your anger really wants to tell you

Anger contains so much astounding energy in it that it never ceases to amaze me. Here’s where I think all that energy comes from, and what it really wants to tell us.

What if it’s “too late” to follow my calling? Or “too early”?

How do we know it’s the right time to follow our calling? What if the timing is totally inappropriate? What if it feels like it’s too late to make changes in your life? Or much too early?

What if following my purpose is just a way for me to feel morally superior to other people?

Is it morally better to live a meaningful life? In other words, is it a way to feel morally superior to others?

What will people think if I start being more of me?

Truth is: no one really cares. The way to make yourself stop caring about what they will think, surprisingly, is through humour.

Are you holding off from doing the work you need to do? Here’s possibly why. And what you can do about it.

How can I respond when people ask me “What do you do?”

Are you afraid to go to parties because you dread being asked that question that everyone asks – “What do you do?” Several of my friends who also happen to be in a state of transition like me – who are leaving one career for something uncertain – face this fear.

Why many of us can go our whole lives not knowing our talents

I argue it’s because talents often feel like blind luck. That is, we take them for granted.

Why the road to the future must be evolutionary and not revolutionary

All of us have an inner rebel. But this is a case for why we should not ask ‘What am I rebelling against?’ but instead ask, ‘What am I rebelling for?’

Why you shouldn’t let your ideas die before you’ve cast a wide net

Don’t reject your ideas, and what your true self wants to bring to the world, based on the reactions of those immediately around you.
