#19 Time travel speed

Konstantin Starodetskii

Time travel speed

Time travel speed. In a sense, all of us are time travelers, and the destination is the future. In our present reality, it’s doubtful that we’ll reach it. Our thoughts are the future. Our actions are the past.

Strange existence if you pause to think about it. Would we be able to travel in time? I don’t know. That will remain a mystery for a while. What I do know, is that we can change the speed of time travel. Our perception of time is the key. You’ve probably noticed that when you feel happy time flies, but when you suffer negative emotions it stands still. It’s such a simple concept, yet there’s something mysterious in it.

I’ve noticed that with the appearance of social media we feel like we don’t have time at all because all the moments of boredom we fill up with watching content on social media. It gives us artificial happiness, which makes the time fly. But is that a good bargain though? I don’t think so.

We might be happy temporarily, but at some point, our feelings crush. That leads to some other time speeding activities like binge-watching, unhealthy eating, or something even worse. My point is to raise awareness about this artificial boost of time travel speed. Yes, it’s pleasant to use artificial substances to speed up our time.

But beware that your time machine, which is your body may suddenly break and leave you with no time at all.

#18 The great purpose

Konstantin Starodetskii

The Great Purpose

The Great Purpose. Every one of us has one. As we grow, the most challenging part is to discover it and have the courage to pursue. It’s very tempting to succumb to easy-to-do, insignificant activities that come with the flow of life.

Every individual does matter in this world. Recently, I’ve heard a story that made me proud of humanity. An Indonesian air controller who was just 21-year-old refused to leave his post despite a magnitude 7.5 earthquake so that the plane could safely take off.

He sacrificed his life. He made a choice when he felt like he’s the only one who could do it. If he left his post with others, no one would blame him. He was brave and manifested his purpose by accepting it. Unbelievably hard decision in the moment of crisis. I want every citizen of the Earth to know about this Heroic Act.

Now, I think that life presents us with multiple chances to achieve our Great purpose right up until the moment we pass away. However, it’s up to us whether we accept the challenge or do something that’s easier.

The Great Purpose needs your courage to come true, but never doubt that there’s a Great Purpose.

#17 Grab an opportunity

Unconscious Thoughts

Grab an opportunity. When you’ve decided to set yourself on a journey towards a specific career goal, unexpected magic happens. You get an opportunity to make the first step. It happens so fast and sudden that you don’t even see value in it. And that’s the tricky part.

You have to have the courage to pursue that chance. Of course, if it aligns with your career goal. Don’t think about rewards or any other benefits. Imagine that it’s your essential step to break free from the years of inaction. This trigger sets you up for future success. Embrace it right away.

Next time may happen months and years from now. In the worse scenario, it may not even happen at all. So get right to business the moment you set your mind to it. Even if this specific job or a gig won’t bring you direct results, it will connect to the new or more significant possibilities.

It just happens, I don’t really know why. The excitement of unknown will motivate you to achieve better results. When your mind is free from unnecessary knowledge, you can produce results people would never think possible.

Also, you’ll pleasantly surprise yourself with your hidden powers. Grab an opportunity and reach your goals.

#15 Today is the answer

Today is the answer

Today is the answer. Is life a game? What role do we play in it? What’s our ultimate mission? Imagine that we live a new reality every day. Take a moment to think about it. What if memories of the past events that we consider our biography reprogram every day in all human beings. It happens simultaneously, so we don’t notice the change.

We believe that we have lived through all those days, experienced various emotions, built careers, started families and relationships. The truth is we won’t know whether it’s right or not. There's no evidence to support that. What we can do is to realize that a new day is a new life and we have to use the most out of it because tomorrow we’ll live a different one.

Things you haven’t finished today won’t be the same on the next day. Today is your answer to life. Meet your friend, write that beautiful scene in your screenplay, inspire co-workers with your enthusiasm and love for the world, because tomorrow somebody else will play your role and the entire reality will be different.

Of course, that’s a theory and most likely isn’t true. However, a possibility of its existence makes you value every precious minute of your day and empowers to live in the moment, as the greatest actor, who impersonates his character completely.

Today is your answer to life.

#14 Action cures failures

Action cures failures

Action cures failures. And that’s a fact. No matter how massive your defeat. You didn’t get what you’ve wanted. That sucks, very much. There may be moments when you want to dig yourself under the ground as deep as possible. Or go into some retreat. Hold on! Make a quick analysis.

Ask yourself: ”Does this activity makes me happy? If the answer is “no”- forget about it, but if it’s a “yes,” then declare to yourself: “I’m doing it again starting now.” Push yourself a little harder and turn frustration into a dedication.

The faster you’ll make this decision the better. In other words, you tell yourself: “I refuse to suffer.” To what your mind probably responds something like: “What do you mean you’re refuse?! Are you kidding me?! I’ve already pre-planned your depression for the following year, what I’m gonna do now?” That’s the moment when you act.

When you do this first step towards attaining your goals, your mind will say: “I see... Why didn’t you tell me before?!” And now with the first action made, and your mind on your side, you set yourself up for a beautiful journey while avoiding unnecessary suffering.

As a result, you’ll be much better self then you were when you failed, and that’s golden. Now your mind and body are well-prepared to tackle the challenge. Good luck!

#13 Living on the edge

Konstantin Starodetskii

Living on the edge

Living on the edge. This is a tricky concept. Should you live like that or not? Within the last few days on my filming trip through the deserts of Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. I’ve encounter three things that made me reconsider the concept of living on the edge.

Number one, walking down the Las Vegas strip. Number two, gazing at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, and number three, writing this episode in the sky while flying from McCarran airport to the Burbank one. So what is living on the edge? It’s not just running along the rim of the Grand Canyon. This is way bigger. It’s life in its absolute, purest form. It’s a constant stream of energy that drives you towards your goal.

Yes, there is a fair chance of losing and failing. But also another opportunity to discover great experiences unknown to the most of humanity. If you live in a box whether it’s a physical one or a mental prison in your mind, get out of there. That is not life. Make a change. The key here is that the flow of energy makes you happy and lasts as long as you’re trying. While failure is painful but short.

The challenge is to think of failure as a learning tool. You’ve failed not because you’re a born that way. Most likely you just didn’t give your best, or it’s not your thing at all. Be honest with yourself. Rethink your priorities Ask yourself: “Why am I doing this?” And don’t let your emotions control your actions, force your actions to cure your despondency.

If you failed, take a deep breath and sing a song about your failure making up words as you go along. The next day, start from a fresh page. It’ll save month maybes even years of time. Keep your energy flow going by embracing the power of living on the edge.

#12 Let the world guide you

Let the world guide you

Let the world guide you. In the moments when I feel that my daily life goes in a linear mechanical way and loses its juice, I escape from it for a while. As I was practicing it, I discovered a way to let my mind free and allow the world to open a conversation.

Leave your phone and other devices at home and go outside. Once you’re there, close your eyes, take a deep breath in and then blink your eyes open as you breath out. The first sign that gets your attention. Follow it. It can be anything: a traffic sign in a shape of an arrow, a cloud that challenges you to run after it. Or something in the way that pedestrians move or birds fly.

Pursue that impulse until you discover another piece of visual information advising your mind where to go. I do it for a while until I come to a place that gives me an answer or a suggestion to what should I do next in my life. It reveals the essential change I must make, and reminds me of my true values. Then I go home.

Usually, it takes a while, and your mind finds a solution almost at the same time as your body gets exhausted from wandering. Since you explore a real world, you may interact with other people and perhaps start new friendships. Our reality is a vast ocean, and you’ll always be receiving surprises from it as long as you allow yourself to be open to it.

Let the world flow into your body and soul. So the monotonous life will explode in a colorful, emotional spectrum and you’ll appreciate the gift of life.
