What is Motivation?

And how to be motivated

Much like emotions, motivation is simply a decision away. It must be said that being motivated is a choice, not a character trait, and in my experience people like to believe the contrary as an excuse for their complacency.

In Two Minds

A poem by Joshua Giuliani

Littlefoot & Co events bring out the best in me. It’s amazing how confronting it is talking about the things you are passionate about in a room with 20 other people – and even more confronting when it’s in the form of a poem! These events really do help develop a true understanding of your

Be Antifragile

It's not a word but it's a great way to live

I want to ask you a question – what is antifragility? What does it mean to be the opposite of fragile? Give me your definition. Have a think about it before you continue.

Have You Heard Of The Crusades?

Islamophobes have a short memory

Islamophobia is now a prevalent feature of western culture, especially in the US. All western countries would have pockets of individuals guilty of Islamophobia in the current landscape.

How Science Will Change Your Life

The astronomical correlation revelation

Curiosity in my early 20s set me on a path, which would later result in my ‘awakening’. I would watch Youtube video after Youtube video on the train, to and from work, on my ancient iPhone, racking up a massive data bill most months. It was worth it though – I would soak in hours of

Who is in Control, You or your Brain?

A look at the concept of self-control

Ever since I took part in a Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) workshop a couple of years ago, my whole view on the concept of self-control, addiction and emotions has been completely turned on its head.

Merry Christmas & Happy Birthday to… Horus?

How Jesus' and Horus' stories are significantly similar

Christmas is a great time to be around family and friends, give gifts, laugh, eat and watch Tim Allen movies. For me, an atheist, that is where the significance ends. For Christians however, the holiday is so much more – it represents the birth of Jesus, the central character in the New Testament of the
