What Is Ego? Is It There to Help Your Existence or to Control You?

What is ego? Ego is a very common topic for discussion, yet not many truly understand what it is, how it works and why it plays such a big role in our life. On the one hand, people often say that ego is “bad” and that it is there to slow us down. But on the other hand, it exists, and there must be a reason for it, just like there is for everything else in life.

What to Do When Someone Is Better Than You? – Dealing with Jealousy

Dealing with jealousy… Let’s face it, it’s one of the most difficult feelings to handle and one of the most poisonous ones as well.

Materialism and Spirituality – Can They Co-Exist?

For a very long period of time, I was convinced that materialism and spirituality cannot co-exist. In fact, I thought that materialism is the direct opposite of spirituality, and that all materialists are inherently “shallow people”.

As a person that is very passionate about self-actualization, I believe that the topic of materialism and spirituality cannot be put aside. Self-actualization is all about becoming better and finding harmony, a balance in life between everything that it offers. Therefore, both, materialism and spirituality, should be handled with equal importance.

The aim of this post is to help those that might be having the same inner struggle that I once had. A struggle regarding the question of can materialism and spirituality co-exist in one person or can they not?

How to Start a Business When You Have a Full-Time Job

I belong to many Facebook groups dedicated to having an online business. One common question I see asked a lot is how to start a business when you have a full-time job? I see that the majority is split into two camps. The first half wants to quit their job/studies immediately to go fully into their business, without actually having a solid financial backup. The second half finds it extremely demanding to start a business when their day job eats up most of their time. Because I have a full-time job myself while simultaneously working on other “projects”, I feel that I have something to add to this subject in order to help people better understand whether this is doable and even worth it.
