Mark Cuban was born in 1958, to Jewish working-class parents. He built and sold multiple businesses, before did his baddest deal, broadcast.com.

Sold to Yahoo! in 1999. FOR $5.7 BILLION.

He then cashed out before the dot com crash. Today, he is worth $3 Billion.

LISTEN now.

Read his book, How to Win.

He owns Dallas Maverics. He is described by Forbes as the ‘loudmouth‘ owner.

Because he still behaves like a College Kid. A rich College Kid. With his own $40 Million Jet.

THIS is why YOU should too…

1. Options.

College Kids don’t own houses. Neither expensive cars. Large LCDs. Big leather sofas. On EMIs.

Housing investment returned 0.4% from 1890 to 2004 in the United States. Usually, it is 300-400% of your total investment portfolio. With a 30 year commitment. You get stuck. It never sells when you need the money.

Keep cash.

Cash, that you can…

10 Things I Learnt from ‘The TOLTECS’ about Life

TOLTEC wisdom – applied to Modern Life. Insightful. Liberating.

10 Things I Learnt

I got introduced to TOLTEC wisdom by Don Miguel Ruiz in the book The Four Agreements.

TOLTECs originated from ancient Mexico about 2,000 years ago. They were a society of artists and spiritual seekers. They learnt a great deal about human nature. And reality.

The Toltec wisdom gives hope. A hope to live a dream. The dream of being free. Of being yourself. Of full expression.

This life is a Dream. It is your creation. It is your perception of reality. A reality you can change. Anytime.

THIS is what I Learnt from the Toltecs about life…

1. Reality is a manifestation.

At the fifth Solvay Conference in October 1927, Niels Bohr told Albert Einstien, “Einstien, stop telling God what to do.”

Although Bohr’s comment was in good humor, it begs inquest.

“Reality, what a concept!”

– Robin Williams

Reality is defined. It is a concept. Defined by our…

10 new ways to create ANY Habit you want in 30 Days. And keep it forever.

Create ANY New Habit in 30 Days. And keep it forever.

10 Things I Learnt

A habit is a routine or action that is repeated regularly. And occurs unconsciously.

“A habit….is a fixed way of thinking, willing, or feeling acquired through previous repetition of a mental experience.”

American Journal of Psychology (1903)

We are constantly forming habits. New habits. Changing old ones. Either consciously or unconsciously.

Mostly such habit formations are without any conscious influence.

We can control that. And there is lots of research on habit formations. But for you and me, its all bullshit. It never works. For more than a few days.

Luckily, SJ Scott has put out some simple ideas to help us average folks. In his book Wake Up Successful.

THIS is how you can create ANY Habit you want in 30 days…

1. Identify your routine.

For 1 week, document what you do in the day. From waking up. To leaving home. Till the time you sleep.

Don’t change…

10 Tips on how you can find your Passion

PASSION – Deconstructed.

10 Things I Learnt

Passion is over rated. Much deliberated. A hotly debated abstraction.

Its a mystifying concept. Incomprehensible. Elusive.

But Passion is at the core of who we are. Passion is the source. And unless you are connected to your source, there will be something missing. You will feel empty.

“Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams.”

– Donovan Balley

“THIS is certainly NOT what I’m supposed to do.”

“This does NOT feel like me.”

These are statements that I said to myself over and over again.

So, I asked the one who knows everything.

GOOGLE. 5.8 billion results. One thing was established. I was not the only one.

But I didn’t have the gazillion hours to go over the results. I had to find something that was easier to understand.

I found the wisest 3 guys. They had a lot to say about how…

10 Tips To Be a Great Dad

10 Things I Learnt

“Children are smarter than any of us. Know how I know that? I don’t know one child with a full time job and children.”

– Bill Hicks

Receiving unconditional love from another Human, is the greatest privilege. Kids are as close to God as you can get.

They are pure. They are uncorrupted. They look at life the way it is. They are brutally honest. They love fully.

It is tough being a Dad. But it can be hugely rewarding. And it is a lot of fun. If done right.

Some experts disagree, though.

“Marriage is like a coffin and each kid is another nail.”

– Homer Simpson (One week after marriage)

I’ve been a Dad for 5 years. I’ve had many debates. Read a lot. Learnt a lot. By doing.

These are my “TOP 10 TIPS TO BE A GREAT DAD”

1. Stop going to the…

10 Quick Tips to be Happy

QUICK TIPS TO BE HAPPY!

10 Things I Learnt

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”

Aristotle

Sitting at her desk, Gretchen Rubin, had an epiphany. “I don’t want a crisis to remake my life,” she thought. She spent the next 12 months learning to be Happy.

These are the “10 QUICK TIPS” from her book, The Happiness Project

10 Things I Learnt about Creativity. From Robert Greene.

CREATIVITY – What it is & How to use it?

10 Things I Learnt

It is a blessing to be born Human. According to latest studies, if you can read this, you are Human.

Somewhere around 2 million years ago, the Human brain tripled in size. The size of our brains is double of what is expected of Mammals of the same size. And one of the profound abilities we developed, was to create abstract ideas. And images. And concepts.

We can visualize what is not. We make constant connections. Sometimes in seemingly unrelated concepts. We can compare. We can associate.

THIS is what I learnt about Creativity. From the book Mastery. By Robert Greene

1. You were born creative

Observe a baby.

They explore. They create connections that seem absurd. Like a blue grass. Or a green Sun.

They love to draw. They love to learn. They ask lots of questions. Stupid questions. They love to sing. They love to dance.
