Act As If: Choosing a new acting part

“We’re all just acting a part, so which script will serve you and the others around you the most?” That’s how one of the chapters of Aaron Anastasi’s book end, and I wanted to start this post with that question since I think it can be a great follow up to these ‘reinventing ourselves’ series. Recently I’ve been giving this question (and the whole chapter) a lot of thought. On the one hand some part of me refuses this idea since if it’s true that we are all acting a role, that would mean nobody is authentic. On the other…

Profound self transformation: The slow reading approach

As I’ve already mentioned before I love reading and learning. During the last ten years I’ve devoured many books, specially self-growth books, trying to improve or “fix” some aspects of me. Sometimes I forget that I’m reading those books with a purpose and I just enjoy reading as I would be reading a novel.

We all have a story in our heads that probably started as a child, which has been either evolving through adulthood for some people or being repeated with almost no change for others. The critical point that this book pointed out for me is whether…

The 3 practical questions to silence our ‘I’m not enough’ thoughts

As I already mentioned on a previous post, “not having what it takes” to go after or to achieve something was one of the most predominant thoughts when I was confronted with a decision or when I wanted to pursue something in the past. Obviously, that’s not a very resourceful mindset. The problem was that I thought it had something to do with inheritance, genes or something that I was lacking and was not possible for me to change. What some people call “fixed mindset“. That is until recently. One of the main take-aways for me from the book “The…


Bringing purpose to what I do

I remember vividly being at home when I was 9 or 10 years old, trying to do my homework for school. I had to write a text and apparently I just couldn’t. There was something deep inside of me feeling helpless because I thought I didn’t have what it took to write that text, even though I was one of the best students in class with the best grades. Call it lack of creativity or lack of intelligence or whatever crossed my mind back then, but the thing is, that that feeling stood with me long. Too long. Actually I…
