A lot of people can't enjoy their lives. And I totally understand that. You know, I've been there.

Earlier in my career, I was a completely different person. I had a very bad temperament, I was constantly fighting, I was constantly getting into arguments and I was constantly chasing something that I could not achieve.

if you know my story, you've probably heard me talking about my retirement career. I've chased retiring when I was 30 that when I got there I felt completely lost. I have achieved my goal but... NOW WHAT? And this is the point I want to get: I didn't use to enjoy life back then.

So, how do you become a man that fully enjoys life? How can you create a life full of joy and enjoyment? Watch this video and find out!

Some programmers dream of getting a job. Some programmers dream of finding high paying clients. And some programmers dream of becoming entrepreneurs.

Despite entrepreneurship being one of the most talked things of the last few years and is presented as one of the best solutions for people, it is not for everyone.

The life of entrepreneurs is hard. It involves a lot (I really mean... A LOT!) of hard work, creative thinking, decision making, guts, mindset, etc. And it might not be the best option for you. And there is nothing wrong with it.

So, do you wanna know if entrepreneurship is the road you should be following? Listen to this episode and find out!

Recently, I've faced one of the hardest times of my life when it came to keeping up motivation. If you watch my videos you've probably seen how unmotivated I became and I literally exposed myself here in the channel, which is something I do for you to realize that it can happen to anyone.

In those videos, I talked about the importance of keeping it going, even tough you're unmotivated. And how you need to keep working for you to achieve everything you want in life.

However, I think that, in life, everything needs to be balanced. In today's video I'm going to talk about work addiction.

I received an email from a reader that said that his drive couldn't stop and he couldn't enjoy anything that life has provided him. He kept going from one thing to another and he never actually found time to stop and enjoy life. He asked my opinion on this and what is the reason that he can't stop and enjoy life.
