The list we created was made to instruct the readers on solving personal problems and barriers.

Do you feel sick and tired of all the generic advice on success out there? It’s always the same stuff:

  • Read more
  • Write more
  • Believe in yourself
  • Eat healthy
  • Go to the gym
  • Love your life and your wife

All of the articles seem like they were written by someone who has never experienced real life or any of the struggles they tend to write about.

It’s like getting advice from an alien.

But nobody ever writes about the details of the struggle.

Because they don’t know it.

To be able to know and understand the struggle, you need to…

I wrote 289,755 words in the last 365 days. A good business book is around 60,000 words, which means that in the last year I managed to write four books. Here’s the catch — I did this by committing to only one easy and simple action each and every day.

A little more than two years ago, I decided to become a writer. I knew that becoming a writer was a hard mission and that it wouldn’t fall from the sky — I had to earn it. So I studied what the biggest writers of the past and present did…

No matter where we are, there are certain principles we can apply to our situation to make the best of it and achieve success. Nonetheless, by success, I don’t mean just money. What I mean by that is a holistic success in all important areas of life including business, family, relationships, friendships, adventures, travels, fulfillment and more.

So here are 5 questions that will lead you to success no matter where you are in life:

1. What is the silver lining here?

Leadership is like philosophy — it was first a way of life, fully connected with action-taking and now it became an epitome of armchair blabbering. I learned leadership lessons the hard way but then, I reflected on that experience and read books from the world’s best leaders which helped me put things into perspective.

Below are 3 leadership laws that I learned that will propel you to success.

1. Lead by example

“I’m the kind of person that when I saw a lack of African Americans in the apparel business, that was something I set out to do, and I lead by example.” …

“Hard times create strong men.
Strong men create good times.
Good times create weak men.
Weak men create hard times.”

This was first mentioned by Plato in The Republic and has been the truth ever since. But there is a way you can break this never-ending circle and it begins and ends with personal responsibility and growth.

When people break this cycle, they displayed the following 5 characteristics that made them unstoppable.

1. Become a leader of men

“Great leaders don’t tell you what to do. They show you how it’s done.” — Alessandro Berselli

Easier said than done. To become a leader of men, you…

There is a lot out there written about success. People tell you to try this out, use this hack or buy that course because it will make you successful.

The truth is… well, the truth.

And the truth is messy, unpopular, and something we often don’t want to hear. That’s exactly why we need to hear it — because the popular, sugarcoated examples aren’t leading us to success. So here are the 5 not so popular, but effective, ways success works:

1. Consistency trumps everything

“I only write when inspiration strikes. Fortunately, it strikes at nine every morning.” — W. Somerset Maugham

It’s not…

How do you become an adult in a society that doesn’t ask for sacrifice? How do you become a man in a world that doesn’t require courage? The test of leadership isn’t done on the couch, discussing things with internet trolls and commentators. Leadership, like philosophy, is action-based and can’t be separated from that into a purely theoretical field.

To become a leader, it isn’t enough to read about it, you need to live through it. That leads us to the first point.

1. Experience trumps theory

“In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.”

Reading over 120 business and self-help books, traveling all around Europe teaching people soft skills like storytelling and self-awareness, has shown me certain patterns on how great human beings become…well, great.

These things sometimes hide in plain sight but we are too distracted to see them so we skip them. Day-in and day-out we keep plowing through, not knowing if the things we are doing are making us any better.

That’s why I will share the patterns I learned on the ground through personal experience and from the best business and self-help books out there. …

The deeper I went into personal development and into different schools of thought, the more I realized that all of them are (partially) right. That made me crazy. Because I was trying to find definite answers to the questions that don’t have one. It appeared to me as if I just went in circles, never finding the answers I was seeking.

But then, it all came to me in a single moment. It’s not about what is right, it’s about what’s right in that specific moment. …

It’s easy to be an armchair philosopher. It’s hard to be a real-life practitioner. Join to explore the second one.
