When Being Broken is Funner Than Being Whole

The mind is interesting. For instance, having been sober from various prescriptions pills, alcohol and high amounts of weed, there are moments when I truly miss indulging in these behaviors.

I have been sober for a year and for that I can attest that life has definitely improved by much. Being enrolled at great college, awesome and refreshing relationships, high amounts of self understanding, value, and esteem, a deeper relationship with God and even an intense gym regimen.

However, every blessing comes with it its share of burdens.

And that goes for anything such as;

The added responsibilities with your new promotion at work

The stress that comes with having the child you always wanted

With this knowledge, it helps to understand that it should be of no surprise that at some point of our "breakthroughs" rather it be sobriety, health, or a great relationship. Ther…

5 Dark Philosophies from 5 Famous Gangsters That Can Improve Your Confidence

America loves gangsters. From Al Capone and Billy the Kid, to fictional icons such as Tony Montana from Scarface and chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin Walter White from the hit show Breaking Bad.

In reality, most of us with (with at least a little bit of sense) are aware that beyond the hype, these men were psychopaths. Clinically and psychologically speaking, a gangster, in its current definition, isn't something healthy to desire to become.

However, there is something about a gangster's traits that strikes at our core. A bonafied sense of power and freedom seems possible and even attainable when we witness the confidence of these men rather for right or wrong reasons. Because of this, many of us admire these fictional or non fictional individuals.

Here is a list of 5 philosophies listed as quotes that these famous gangsters, fiction or non fiction lived by that we can use to increase our perspective of life, influence, work, and most of all our overall confidence.

In fact, we can all admit that many times it feels like this separate entity called "Life" is against us. As if we live in a strange and unwelcoming world constantly driving us out and pushing us over the edge of the Abyss of Chaos and disorder.

Four Reasons Young Adults Should Not Dream!

I am no billionaire or millionaire but I am one on the journey towards being a young entrepreneur that can hopefully add value for others in society one way or another. As encouraged as it is to have a BIG PLAN and HUGE VISION, as many in the self-help world would explain, A big vision without smaller and micro-managed goals is just a pipe dream. As young adults, it is important to dream but to also be grounded in reality and take action on a day to day basis. Many young aspiring dreamers, such as myself, have fallen to the 'Dream Curse".
