When You Feel Like You’re Drowning in a Sea of Thoughts

Near the beginning of my journey into personal development (PD), I randomly crossed paths with a fellow ‘Coelho’ who happened to also be heavily invested in the space. My friendship with Bruno formed in no time, and over the years, while not always in touch, we’ve continued to journey down the long, difficult, confusing and scary path of discovering who we are at our very core. What I enjoy most about Bruno’s approach to PD is not only that he so aptly calls it The Rabbit Way (which btw I JUST realized is probably because ‘Coelho’ means rabbit in Portugese #Mindblown) but that he always lets his passion, self-awareness and desire to help others, lead him. There have been many times I have felt jealous of how much drive he has to create and contribute, a fact in which he will only find out once reading this post.. Surprise bro! lol What’s most...

The Changing Seasons of a Relationship

Relationships are a funny thing, aren’t they? At one moment you could be binging Netflix together for days on end, and the next you can’t stand sitting on the same couch. I’ve always been fascinated by relationships (in all forms), and understanding what it takes for a human connection to form, develop and sustain the roller coaster of life. It’s one thing to learn about it from the outside looking in, but quite another to be the guinea pig of your own experiment. Thankfully, I’ve been blessed with numerous experiences over the years; however, becoming more self-aware has made me more cognisant of what seems to be going on. In this article I’d like to share a framework I’ve begun to notice that I believe takes place in all of our relationships. By no means do I want to advertise this perspective as throughly researched or ‘proven’,...

The Power of Working Through Your Emotions

Have you ever wondered why when we feel (or may feel) good emotions like happiness, fun and joy, we have no problem jumping into the experience and going for the ride. However, when we feel (or may feel) bad emotions, we stop, retreat, hide, or distract ourselves do avoid every possibility of being taken for the ride? I’ve been really thinking about this recently, but not in the way I typically have in the past. You see, a few years ago I wrote a book on how we can use perceived pleasure and pain to motivate us to move in a certain direction. This was an excellent tool, especially for myself at the time as I was focused on achievement. But nowadays, as I become aware of the fleeting excitement of chasing after ‘the next best thing’ I’ve become more interested in the idea of human connection, both with one’s self and others. In this regards, the idea of...

Let’s Be Honest

If you’ve followed my blog and Facebook, you know I enjoy to post things as I’m inspired. I’m sure this may have been motivating at times, overwhelming at others, or sometimes even non-existent. What you don’t know, is the conscious calculations that I put in place to protect myself before every share… “Does this article expose just enough, but not too much so that I can be judged?” “Does this post show I’m vulnerable, just not currently a victim to that vulnerability?” “Am I authentic enough I can relate to people but they still feel I am certain in where I’m going in life?” It’s easy to post when the good stuff is coming to me; but it seemingly impossible to do when the day is shit. You see, I actually wanted to share what I’m sharing with you here in a YouTube video. I know that I have a lot to...
