    Hello. Workawayers.
    I have been hosting travellers for more than 5 years including other websites
    So I have met so many travellers and some of them became my friends now
    I like to talk about self-help
    From learning many languages to understanding a lot of stuff to improve myself

    Such as :

    - The secret is that productivity isn’t about time, but about maintaining focus and energy

    - Well, one thing is for sure: nice people tend to make less money and receive worse reviews than their meaner peers. Just take a study by the Harvard Business Review, which found that men who are low on the “agreeableness” scale make up to $10,000 more per year than those who are very affable

    - For example, a study of the Five Factor Model test of personality used by psychologists found that entrepreneurs had, among other personality traits, huge amounts of disagreeableness. It showed that many leaders reached their level of success by taking social gambles and having the boldness not to compromise their beliefs. Despite the fact that they could easily have been shunned by their peers and excluded from positions of power and influence, they took this risk to succeed.

    - In order to expand your zone, you have to do something that feels uncomfortable every day

    A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities
    J. R. R. Tolkien

    If you have a dream, and truly believe you can achieve it, then you will be able to see that dream come true if you try hard, and work for it, no matter what reality says to you.

    Mohammed Ali worked his butt off
    When he was doing sit-ups in the gym, a sportswriter asked him "How many sit-ups do you do?"
    He said "I don't start counting until it hurts"
    Think about it, he doesn't start counting his sit-ups and builds up to feel pain, that's when he starts counting
    That is working hard

    Arnold Schwarzenegger has said he doesn't have Plan B. He hates Plan B
    There are so many doubters
    We have so many of those people who say you can't do it, that's impossible
    So if you start doubting yourself, you will probably think if my plan doesn't work, I have a fallback plan, that's plan B
    That means that you start thinking about Plan B and you are taking away energy from Plan A
    But it's very important that you should understand that we perform better if there is no safety net
    Plan B is the safety net.
    People say if I fail and get picked up Plan B and I'll be alright
    But it's not.
    People do better in everything if they don't have a plan B
    If there is no plan B, people can make a full commitment to achieve what they want, people do the work very hard, over and over until they get it

    The founder of the E-commerce giant Alibaba Jack Ma when he established his company, other competitors came and took away his people
    The funny thing is that smart people who had their vision of themselves and new ideas were taken away from other companies
    The rest of the other people stayed in the company because they're not very smart as much as him according to Jack Ma
    Nobody came to try to hunt them so they didn't have a choice but they believed what they're doing, what they wanted to achieve
    They believed their dream

    Steve Jobs explained what the difference between successful and unsuccessful people is
    Successful people loved what they did so they could persevere when it got really tough
    But the ones that didn't love their jobs, they quit because they're not insane
    When the difficult realities block the way of them, unsuccessful people seek for a Plan B and quit the work they're doing because they are pretty enough rational not to put up with the hard stuff that they don't love
    They give up because it cost a lot of hard work, effort and continuous failures
    Who can make a strong stand if they don't love it?
    Who can keep facing tough realities if they don't have a true goal or a powerful dream?

    You have to have tunnel vision
    Get rid of Plan B
    You will face a lot of failures while on the road for what you want to achieve
    You're going to fail ten times, a hundred times, maybe even a thousand times
    But that's ok. Failure is not permanent
    You fail and get up and fail and stand up again if you have a clear goal and dream

    Many people around you might say that you're not going to make it; you can't be the person who you want
    When you hear that, tell them they are right
    You will fail as they said
    But you are not afraid of fail, you are not afraid of taking action, you don't hesitate to stand up again, you are ready to get many failures
    And you know this
    You have strong tunnel vision of yourself; you have your own dream

    A single dream is so powerful than a thousand realities

    Do what you love to do
    Don't ever never give up
    Keep going
