They’re normal people just like you and me.

But.

What they do have that’s different from most people is their MINDSETS.

According to a quick Google search, a mindset is a set of assumptions, methods, or notions held by one or more people or groups of people.

Everybody knows the quote “You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.” Humans though may be naturally judgmental. It’s in our human nature to judge other people: whether by their looks, clothes, first impression, manner of speaking, way of walking, how much money they make, where they came from, their ethnicity, etc.

While it is in our nature to judge, I think we should also try our best not to judge another person so quickly. …


Everybody has encountered people who disagree with them or put them down at some point in their lives.

For most people I know, it started in school. It happened when their teacher told them for some reason, that they will never achieve their dreams or goals because it’s too big or ambitious

For a few people, they might have been achievers when they were in school, but when they went into the real…

I just turned 27 years old yesterday. For some people it might be young, for some, it might be getting up there. For me, it’s just the right age. I’ve learned a lot of things in my life, I hope to impart this knowledge to you, especially if you’re younger than me.

1) Most people aside from your family and close friends don’t care about you, so don’t worry about what other people think, because almost nobody is thinking about you at all.

I’m sure you’ve heard of these phrases: “She’s out of my league, she’ll never date me.” or “He’s out my league, he’ll never ask me out.” What is this “league” that people are talking about when it comes to dating?

From my experience, this “league” that people are talking about is nothing more than a superficial concept that people a long time ago made up. Most of it has to do with a physical attractiveness of a person and his/her partner.

When the guy is ugly and the girl he’s dating is pretty, people will say “oh he’s rich” or…


Can people actually “take a break” from social media? Is it possible with most people spending at least a few hours day on social media? Will this actually improve my mental health?

Most kids today who watch basketball, idolize guys like Stephen Curry, Lebron James, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and all the other current all stars in the NBA today. When I was a kid though, there was one player who everybody idolized and looked up to, that player was Kobe Bryant. Kobe was a player who could do it all. He can score, shoot, pass, rebound, defend, and do low post moves better than most big men in his time. Whenever people round my age shoot, they scream “Kobe!” Even when kids pretend to play basketball around a garbage can in…


How do we define bravery? What exactly makes a person brave? Based on the dictionary, brave is defined as “ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage.” Bravery is defined as simply “courageous behavior or character.” What does a brave person look like in every day life?

Bravery may have a different image for different kinds of people. What you define as brave might not be brave for another person. For me though, I know three kinds of people that definitely fits the criteria, or even candidates for being the bravest people.
