Do your 1.000 Punches

I’m Watching a Documentary called “Secrets of Shaoling” I just paused the video to write about this one thought that I need to remember. The master just told the guy that has just started the training: “You gradually will be able to fight as good and flawlessly as us. The motion of the body flaws naturally after 1.000 punches” I …

Failure

I failed again

Yes. I did it again. I failed. I wanted to write daily in this blog but I stopped. Again. 14 days of daily writing didn’t create the habit. Even though I wrote about and know that consistency is a basic fundamental for success, it wasn’t enough. I guess my commitment was not strong enough. Is all about commitment. If I …

The mindset of winners

Yesterday a wrote about the last book I’m reading: Relentless. It’s all about the mindset of the super top performers. I told you the things I did’t like about that mindset. But today I want to tell you the things that I really liked. Both are great lessons on what to do or not do. That’s why I think the …

Are you a Cleaner?

I’m finishing reading “Relentless”, a book by Tim Grover, coach of mega top athletes like Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant. It talks about the mindset of the very top performing people on any field: Sports, Business, etc. One of the main thesis of the book is DON’T THINK. But the book has definitively made me think a lot. Tim talks …

Keep pushing

Today I don’t have a clear idea or thought about what to write. Writing daily on a blog is not easy. The easy thing to do is just forget about it. Tomorrow I will have a better idea. Don’t write anything today. But that would be a terrible mistake. It will destroy my momentum. If I keep pushing, I think …

Set up yourself for Success

On yesterdays post I talked a little bit about Willpower. I just finished reading this book “Willpower: Why Self-Control is the Secret to Success” It is an extremely good book. You should read it. More than once. I’m going to write a series of posts talking about the most interesting and useful points on the book. The first thing we have …

The Power of Mentors

Yesterday, after a very active weekend with the kids, I was exhausted. For those of you who don’t know yet, being a father and a husband is even more demanding than being a full time entrepreneur trying to grow a company. I just wanted to watch a movie and fall asleep. I don’t know how but I came across the …

How to set better Goals

Seneca said: “Our Plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is heading for, no wind is the right wind” Setting up goals for ourselves is one of the most important things to be successful, to achieve the things we want to do. But it is important to set them correctly. First …

Always be closing

The other day I was watching a Casey Neistat video where he talks about an interesting concept: “Losers and Closers”  Is about the people who start a lot of things but never finish them VS the people who persist and finish them. That made me think… am I a closer or a loser? I’ve started a lot of things that …
