Although nothing in life is predictable, great things can happen at the most unexpected times. I guess for me, it was the time when I met her.
I would never know a simple conversation about movies could lead me into rediscovering the truest version of myself.
Normally, when you just started talking with someone else, you become picky of your words, you hide your flaws so it doesn’t appear on the surface, but it didn’t happen when I talk with her.
Now, I’m not the talkative type, I’d rather drink my Americano and listening to some of Taylor’s songs because…
The hype is here, I’ve seen stories shared by friends bragging about their portfolios. Huge media repeatedly producing stories about how people got lucky by investing in cryptocurrencies.
It feels like another California gold rush — When approximately 300.000 people traveled to California to mine gold. The fear of missing out forcing these new-called investors to join the gold rush.
There is nothing wrong with investing in crypto — I do invest in it too — but most people aren’t investing, they’re gambling.
It’s always okay to follow the trends as you understand the financial risk, there are lots of…
Our publication has grown rapidly, we now have more than 60 writers — And still counting every day — with their unique backgrounds from teachers, lecturers, students, journalists, and many more.
All in a journey of becoming the best version of ourselves. They shared their ideas and experiences to help us face everyday’s life challenges
I’m optimistic about this publication, and now it’s the time to create even a larger impact on society. It’s time to raise our voices even to bigger audiences.
With the increase of Instagram users each day, I believe it is necessary for us to go…
Nothing is more satisfying at the end of the day more than when you have crushed all of your to-do lists. For me, the feeling of having a productive day always made me feel good before I close my eyes to sleep.
But crossing your to-do list could be quite a challenge. I started my routine from 6 am, and planned to get all things done no later than 5 pm, and I planned to do no work at all in the evening.
It seems so efficient in the theory — To have a productive day, and still have me-time…
If I heard the words ‘success’ ten years ago, I would picture it as wealth, BMWs, a great mansion, and any other cool stuff in this world.
But it turns out the way I looked at success was wrong.
It’s not about the promotion that you got, how much money that you made or even the great cars that you bought. It’s not even about results, it’s all about the efforts.
Whatever your definition of success, it’s not about that big dream, but it is the accumulation of small decisions that you made along the way.
It’s not about losing…
If you have been following my recent writings, I was addressing how important it is to have goals in our lives.
Once you have written those goals on a blank paper, it’s time to convert your ideas into actions. Because without actions, ideas are worthless.
Whatever your goals are, whether having financial freedom, building relationships with your family, losing weight, being a great writer, or any other things.
The first step will always be the hardest.
The first step when you are climbing that ladder, the universe will give you the ultimate test, and begging you to give up on…
The term investment has been quite popular lately, it is a good indicator that people are becoming more aware of the benefits from investing.
What makes investment easier, is that we can do that with very little money, one friend of mine had stopped buying cigarettes and put the money on stocks.
His method sounds good enough. Every day he would save about 25 thousand rupiahs, and add more balance to his stocks using an app from his mobile phone.
But it could’ve been better.
I told him to stop putting the money into stocks. He was quite surprised by…
When was the last time you were overwhelmed by your own thoughts? The moment where your subconscious mind kept telling you that you were unhappy about your life.
“You deserve a much better job”
“You deserve of love and belonging, and this relationship is certainly not giving you any of those things”
“Maybe you need to lose a couple of pounds”
And hundreds of other things that stalling smile on your face. It’s amazing how your subconscious mind kept telling you those things, trying to get you to bend on your knee.
If there is any magic in the world…
Being curated is one of the greatest things that you could achieve in Medium, it means your writing is chosen by the Medium curators and distributed to bigger audiences.
If you are just writing on Medium, I had the same confusion with Medium curation. The thing is, there are lots of articles written on this platform every day, but most of them didn’t even meet the standards to be curated.
If you are writing a great article — That meets their standards — you have exceeded most of the writers on this platform already.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to make good writing? Whether you are writing for fun or treat it as your job, I bet you want to make good writing that stands out and leaves an impact on your reader’s life.
We tell stories every day — Like it or not, we are all storytellers — what makes writers are different from the other storytellers, is that we are offering value — Something that they can take to face everyday challenges.
I never took any writing classes, I spent years studying politics, and spent half of my life learning…
