Trends vs. foundations

It is easy for people to get obsessed with a certain view. And rarely does this show as nicely as it does in a world of food and nutrition. When we look at the world of nutrition I like to classify it into three categories. We have foundations, specifics and trends. Foundations are basic principles. They’ve been around forever and they don’t change. They could only change if our physiology would fundamentally change. In other Read more…

Security vs. growth

People don’t want to move forward but they at the same time don’t want to be left behind. So if they see you advancing in life they will do whatever they can to stop that. It has nothing to do with you. It has everything to do with them. They are doing this because you are their mirror. You are living your potential and that reflects back to their unlived lives. The most toxic people Read more…

Seriousness vs. playfulness

Year after year overworked and overstressed people come to me for advice on feeling optimal. And for years I have been giving them advices like: increase your sleep quota, eat better in terms of macro and micronutrients, meditate, go to sauna or massage, try to reduce your work time and so on. It’s not that these are bad advices. It’s that they are just a small part of the big picture. And that is OK Read more…

Wide vs. narrow perspective

I’ve been criticized in the past by some people that I am simplifying things. For them, the problem they’ve been seeing was much more complex than how I have been seeing it. That remark was usually coming from people who had a problem with a very narrow perspective. Perspective is a way of looking at things. The first thing we learn if we study perspective is there are different ways of looking at the same Read more…

Reason vs. no reason

An acquaintance of mine asked me: “Why do you write these posts?” and when I told her I don’t write them for any specific purpose she was perplexed. Do I have to? Who said we have to have a reason to do something? If nobody sees a reason in what I do I am totally fine with that. I don’t write them to collect likes on social media or views on my website. I don’t Read more…

Joy vs. pleasure

In the third part of Focus and energy series, I will write about how to gain energy if you have none. I write and talk a lot about enjoyment. Why is it important, why we should explore ourselves to see which are the things we enjoy in life, why we should do the work we enjoy and so on. And I’ve been criticized in the past many times because of that. Usually by people who Read more…

High-value vs. low-value living

In the second part of Focus and energy series I want to talk about focusing on the wrong things. One of the most common problems people are complaining to me about is time. They say “I don’t have enough time.” I know how that feels like because I also had such a complaint soon after I started Potentia Society. There was more and more work to be done and less and less time to do Read more…

The Path vs. the Goal

People come to me and say they have meditated for a few months and they feel no change in their lives. There are multiple points to address here. First just to stop and observe our minds and thoughts without feeling like we are our thoughts is such a big change in perspective that could potentially change our lives for the better if we would truly understand what we have just observed. Even without any other Read more…

Focus and energy

How much we are capable of doing in a single day, week, month, year and consequently life is determined by how much energy or vitality (if you want to call it that) we have on a daily basis. And that is determined by how we acquire energy, how we distribute it and how quickly or slowly we use or drain it. How much energy we have is really determined by our focus. Where our focus Read more…

Lacking vs. having

A few days ago a friend of mine said she was depressed. When I asked her why she feels this way she started telling me how she cannot find any more enjoyment in life and she started telling me all the things that she has to do but doesn’t want to do and all the things that went wrong in the last few years and all the things she hoped would happen but didn’t happen Read more…
