The obstacle is surely the way.

Ryan will kill me after this.

I might go for plastic surgery after this post and might be inactive on Medium for a while. (Trust me, I’m lying).

I always believed ego drives success but wasn’t sure how. Ryan got me an answer to that with his book fat.

Ego is the obstacle. The obstacle is the way. Trust me, I’m not lying.

I’m…

High achievers achieve because of ego. The mantra ego is the enemy can kill you.

People crying over a lie freaks me off.

What you think is the problem becomes the solution later. I learned that. Hard way.

There comes a time when you have a dire desire to achieve something. People call it your ego. …

Knowing this can save your career.

Life is a bunch of paradoxes.

The mission of life is to experience life to the fullest, to figure them out.

What you think is right today messes your head tomorrow.

I strived to be the best leader. …

Mass exposure to a lie makes it legal truth.

Living a cool life and bringing out coolness from your mundane life isn’t the same thing.

Yet people obsess over living a cool life which is mostly out of our control.

What’s possible is bringing out coolness from your mundane life.

And an email after 12 p.m on any day is the next day’s concern.

Emails are bullshit.

I used to think emails are the best creation ever until I realized something deeper.

I wasted most of my career replying to emails, being a marketer.

Replying to 20 customer emails steals one hour (including personalization). When you get 40 emails daily, you don’t have time…

And I’m afraid.

Visiting a hospital is fun.

Especially when you have no worries like me, being 17. You get time to think without feeling guilt.

But this time I am afraid. Especially today, I am afraid.

Two situations I am the most afraid of visiting a hospital:

  1. When I have to take…

I never received a paycheck in my life.

Investing in courses becomes hard. Asking parents for money is the easy way out, even though I’m 17.

Not having money to invest in courses led me to realize I am my biggest resource.

The ability to get started.

I wanted to get into a startup at…

When I changed, my life changed.

Imagine not having to worry about whatever happens to you. This happened to me.

I stopped caring about my thoughts because I realized this: Anybody can be fancy. Fancy takes time. Life is fast. Life is messy. Fast is messy. Messy is cool. …

Know this so you never feel suck again.

I learned something by Mahatria that changed my complete game.

His videos popped up on my screen for some reason. This was the first time I saw him. I clicked on the video and was hooked.

In a video (possibly the 13th one on the next day) he shared something…

The secret agenda is bigger: You find your happiness while proving them wrong (aka showing them the possibility).

Society messes your head.

“Impossible” is the only word they have in the dictionary.

Society programs you to act in a way you remain poor, then laugh in their rotten bathtub in the village…not about you though. They laugh at the numbers who bought into their programming. …
