My thoughts on:
- My sister’s approach to her goals
- Why we don’t achieve the big goals we set for ourselves
- Why the small wins are so important
Sometimes thinking like a student will lead to more success than thinking like a winner.

Why Mondays aren’t the worst day of the week, at least to me.
Most people love Fridays & Saturdays but typically hate Mondays or Tuesdays.
My reasons why I love the beginning of the week and why reframing your thoughts this way can be beneficial.
I’m curious: What is your favorite day of the week and why?
As usual, leave me a comment below! I love reading and responding to you all.

What I learned about being cool.
When I was younger, I thought people could only be “cool” or “smart”.
But then I wanted to bridge that gap and be both at the same time.
Now, I realize that cool isn’t about not caring or about being smart. It’s about being self-confident in who you are, knowing yourself, and being unapologetically you.
Do you agree! Let me know in the comments! I respond to all of them 🙂
Why perspective goes a long way.
Would you rather be stuck in traffic caused by a fallen tree, or be the one who’s car had the tree fall on?
This talk was spurred obviously by my frustratingly delayed commute to work. Given my commute is only about 8 minutes, but it turned into 25 minutes, which really annoyed me.
Until I got closer to the reason why there was traffic, and then instantly I changed my attitude. I would rather be in traffic than have my car totaled by a fallen tree.
I think the key idea here is this: there’s always something worse that could have happened.
Also that #gratitude goes a long way in how you see your day going. Whether you’re having a good day or a bad day is soley dependent upon your attitude or mindset.
Unfu*k Yourself by Robert Greene book summary review.
Unfu*k Yourself: Get out of your head and into your life by Gary John Bishop
Are you tired of feeling f*cked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unf*cked version of yourself. “Wake up to the miracle you are,” he directs. “Here’s what you’ve forgotten: You’re a f*cking miracle of being.” It isn’t other people that are standing in your way; it isn’t even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive. It’s yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself.
One of the most effective ways to improve the results you’re getting. Surround yourself with those who elevate you.
“You are the average of your 5 closest friends”
This “Thought of the Day” centers around the idea of how the easiest way to predict our future is to look at who we choose to surround ourselves with.
Constantly find groups that will push you to become your better self.
Take on leadership positions to force yourself to take on new challenges.
Choose growth over comfort.
Special thanks to the Campuswide Honors Program (CHP) at UCI for elevating my mindset and being a part of my personal journey to where I am today 🙏🏼
How perspective can change your reality.
The other day I was talking to a friend who works at both as a nurse, and at milk tea shop part-time.
It made me realize that perspective is a powerful thing.
A bit of perspective can dramatically change our experience. Add up those experiences and over time we have a happier life.
What do you think? How has gratitude played a part in your life?
