What is the difference between being annoying and charming?
I had a discussion with a friend the other day about the concept of Creepy vs Romantic.
The idea is that there is a very thin line between the two. The only thing that separates whether or not you see someone’s actions as “creepy” or “romantic” is whether or not you like that person back.
The same concept applies to “annoying” and “charming” in my opinion.
Just to add on to what I say in the video, I think this self-awareness could also help when you come across to other people. Its good to know whether or not you’re coming across as charming or annoying to the people around you.
This is easy if you know whether or not they like you, haha.

Why our challenges and setbacks are necessary for success.
This idea came from me listening to Eminem’s new album Kamikaze on repeat. Needless to say, I’m lowkey obsessed with it.
Fanboying aside, I wanted to discuss the idea of how we can “turn setbacks into comebacks” as my pastor Rick Warren always says in his sermons.
Key idea: our greatest successes usually come from our greatest setbacks. If you study any successful person, there will usually be a huge setback that came before their breakthrough. This is the fuel for their fire.
Something that crushes weak people is simply motivation for the strong. And the difference between a weak person and a strong person is simply their mindset on how they see the challenge.
