When you take a second to slow down from life’s craziness and pay attention to the little things, you’ll start to find that the signs you needed are all around you✨

I’ve seen this quote circulate on Instagram for years with my name cropped out and a HORRIBLE typo and didn’t say anything. Just setting the record straight. 🖊🌈👦🏼
I have AMAZING NEWS everyone. We sold 200 webinars, so as a token of my appreciation, we have just generated a new PROMO CODE, but this time, for any of the three webinars you decide on! Only 100 tickets can be used. The website is Vimeo.com/ondemand/philgoodlife and you can apply code “WHITEDRAGON” to get 20% off. Every webinar is a little over 60 minutes and will blow your mind, I promise. 🦋 Enjoy! And thanks again for all the positive feedback I received from the last one.
Adult friendships are not always straightforward. But we just don’t talk about how tough it can be to make and keep friends as an adult, at least not the same way we do with dating! Being open about how challenging friendships can be is often the very thing that helps us to feel more connected. Double tap if you’ve ever faced a friendship situation you weren’t sure how to handle 🙌🏼.
This is one of those random photographs that just present themselves to you. I was walking quite in the opposite direction, when somebody talking in the distance caught my attention, making me turn around, fish my phone out of my front pocket and capture this.
At the time, I barely saw how it turned out. And well, quite literally I had a stare down with the sun for causing such inconvenience.
Later that day, I was scrolling through my gallery and I see this picture, again. And it hits me, how representative it was of the nostalgia that encompassed me, of leaving, of that urge, that longing to stay.
On the spur of the moment, I wrote these lines :
"I grow attached all too soon,
to places that embrace with open arms
yet never promise to keep.
This land repels,
it never makes room for me,
tightly clenching the breath of its soil
within sealed fists.
It welcomes only visitors,
that come with an intent to leave,
I will forever be a visitor,
a passerby dwelling
from village to village,
from one city light to another,
in search of an entity I am yet to define. "
An incomplete poem is what this is , and perhaps,I will find the words to complete it one day.
It's funny how one day is all it takes to be this close to something and then find it gone.

How are your days?
Oh! Okay let me ask about how your nights are?
I remember the days when we held hands and walked down the streets.
I remember the days when the daylight was bright and we travelled down from different cities to meet, to have that one glimpse of each other's face.
I remember when he took me to places which could hold the best memories of our lifetime, I remember gazing at nature, feeling the breeze, in the evenings.
I remember the daylight fading and we held hands walking along the shore.
I remember us sitting at the beach waiting for the dusk to fall, and we were watching the tide rise and fall, we talked about how months have changed, and where we are now.
I remember myself resting on his chest, the cold nights which were warm, engulfed me with his love that mentioned another era of togetherness
I remember him kissing me, reminding me how important and the worth of my existence in his life.
I rember lying next to him, looking at him sleep.
How adorable he is when he is fast asleep!
I remember then that one fine day when my sister told "Someday you will find that one person who will be 'The Forever'. _______________________🌸

If you haven’t read The Third Door. You, need to.
Whether you’re a dreamer, a business driven entrepreneur, or someone who needs a nudge of encouragement in any form of life - this book is for you. @alexbanayan
was just a regular 19 year old college student when he had something more powerful knocking while he stared at the ceiling of his dorm room. Knowing there was a bigger purpose out there for him.
He shows what an incredible roller coaster ride of what being told no over and over and experiencing mistakes actually lead to success. He crosses paths with some of the most successful people and unravels what their codes to success actually are.
From fighting all measures to get a publisher so he could meet with Bill Gates. To realizing his lack of conception of women’s struggles landing him with a phone conversation with Maya Angelou, a year before her death. To crossing paths with Lady Gaga and ultimately rebuilding her confidence at a low point in her career. Having Quincy Jones being his saving grace of realizing his whole self worth. To having breakfast with Larry King almost on the regular. And from having Qi Lu the Microsoft software genius becoming a mentor and guiding angel through his process of creating this path. Amongst so MANY more that were all guided by his ability to realize anything was possible. To just keep going for it.
As Alex explains it, there are three doors to get in to your dream, your success, your journey. Sometimes there’s a long line wrapped around the building to get in. Sometimes you’re higher up with credibility and you just get to walk in. Then there’s the side door where you have to sneak in. Or crawling through a window to just get in. There’s always a way in. It’s how you choose to make it happen.
Now Alex travels the country and is a keynote speaker spreading so much encouragement and knowledge on what his journey of going through the third door taught him. All done under 30. “If there was one lesson I learned from my journey, it’s that making these choices was possible. It’s the mindset of possibility that transformed my life. Because when you change what you believe is possible, you change what becomes possible."
