My Worst Enemy

There’s only one person who can keep you from achieving your biggest goals — you. You are either your own worst enemy or your own best friend. So, take a hard look at the bad habits and self-sabotaging tendencies that might keep you from achieving your  goals.

Often, people sabotage themselves because they’re afraid of succeeding. They’re afraid of losing their current identity. These people will make great progress toward a goal and then suddenly, right before achieving it, pull back.

The reason people pull back from success is because they are more comfortable with their past selves than their future selves. They’re uncertain of whom they will become (and if they can handle it), so they fail on purpose. You must avoid this part of yourself. Let go of the person you used to be and open yourself up to the person you can be.

I am a superstar!

When you look at a person, any person, remember that everyone has a story. Everyone has gone through something that has changed them, and forced them to grow. Every passing face on the street represents a story every bit as compelling and complicated as yours. We meet no ordinary people in our lives. If you give them a chance, everyone has something amazing to offer.

Patul lui Procust

Procust este un personaj din mitologia greaca. Acesta ademenea calatorii si le oferea ospitalitatea casei sale. Odata ajunsi in casa, Procust ii obliga sa se culce pe un pat de arama. Atunci cand calatorul era mai scurt decat patul, Procust ii intindea corpul, tragandu-l de maini si de picioare, pana ce-l lungea pe potriva patului. Daca oaspetele era mai lung decat patul, Procust ii taia capul ori picioarele. Evident, in orice situatie deznodamantul era moartea calatorului ghinionist.(…)

Metaforic, patul lui Procust a devenit simbolul practicilor abuzive de incadrare a oamenilor, a gandirii si simtamintelor lor, in anumite tipare prestabilite. (wiki)

Everestul meu

De trei seri incoace ma uit fascinat la “Everest – Beyond the Limit”. Un documentar emotionant care pune in discutie limita naturii umane dar si curajul, ambitia si autodepasirea.

Incalzit sufleteste de o asemenea aventura incep sa ridic planuri catre inaltimi. Apas pe telefon numarul lui Mini care a fost acolo si ma poate indruma. Brusc un gand ma opreste. Si e atat de real.

In jurul nostru, in viata noastra sunt atatea Everesturi! Sunt atat de aproape incat nu le vedem, nu le asumam, le ignoram si mergem mai departe ca si cum n-ar exista. Mergem mai departe fara sa constientizam sansa unui summit.

Mi-ar placea sa ajung in Himalaya. De fapt voi ajunge acolo. Dar pana atunci am Everestul meu aici, aproape, greu de de atins si al naibii de incitant.

Am zis.
