26 | In Search Of Clarity
Talking about clarity, the first thing coming to my mind is the 📚 book from Jamie Smart, where he highlights that we all have a million different projects, to-do lists and worries about money, deadlines and different stuff but there's a way to declutter our minds and concentrate on what's actually important.
The book itself doesn't give many action points in real life but some concepts that particularly resonated with me:
If we believe in something really strongly, then we're halfway there to achieve whatever is that we want
We might need to stop imposing our own restrictions
False horizons only make us feel unsatisfied. For example: “I'll be happy when…”
Success is not about getting that promotion, buying that car or losing some weight… but the continuous journey instead of the end goal.
Clarity = capacity - contamination
I have this idea that reinvention is a process. It's not a quick fix or an overnight solution. It's a conscious and intentional practice, day in and day out, until we realise who we want to be.
I can't believe I've been 8 years in the UK and 11 years abroad (3 in France). Still counting. I feel like talking about how languages improved my life next week. Let's see, perhaps I'll make a video too. 🚀
Have a great week and enjoy the content below!
PS: if you haven't checked it yet, Kristina started her YouTube channel and she shares a lot of 🌱 vegan recipes, recently she nailed it with Argentinian Vegan Empanadas, I personally tried them and they were insanely tasty! 🥟
