What is the point in being alive if you are not going to try for something? If you are not going to at least attempt to make your time here remarkable? Stop holding yourself back. Tell the person that makes your stomach ache with hope that every part of your heart is tender for them, even if you think you aren’t ready. Don’t just fantasize about your dream job, actively pursue it, and if that door is not open, knock it down. Dreaming about a new business, go for it & own yourself. Got a goal? GO, Fetch it. Buy the plane ticket, climb a mountain, swim to shred after an intense workout session, surf when it’s raining, pet your canadian warmblood horse like a sweet puppy, surprise your mates & university bitches with some butt naked snapchat streaks on a beach, let your friends tease you “Aquaman minus SUPERPOWERS”, jump the fence, kiss an angel, makeout in the middle of a concert, full throttle that AMG to 150mph cruising through Autobahn while touring cross-country with your bestfriend.
Make sure that you don’t allow your fear to hold you back. Instead, look your fear in the face and invite it to dinner, become it’s friend. Live alongside it, let it make you feel alive. Just choose impossibility. Choose risk. Choose making mistakes, new mistakes, and making memories, and making it up as you go. Just choose to embrace whatever time you do have here, stay consistent on your life path, because life is finite, and fragile, and it vanishes too quickly. Just make it worth it. Make it count. Life is fun, let it be.
I like meeting new people, it’s fun but i hardly take them seriously. Let’s say I like meeting new people, but i don’t like making new friends. Most people are inconsistent+liars which bums my mood, that’s just cheap in my eyes and i struggle to trust such morons. I already have little over a dozen amazing friends who are my friends since 14th century or past life. That’s the reason I never miss attention or affection. Remember: The only proof your people are real with you is whether they are consistent with their approach towards you. Rest others are there just for nothing – mental drain to be honest.
(Not a secret, i shoot my shots when she’s a peng ting. That’s the best part about being single.😜 There’s a party at Frank’s place next week. Shooting this song at my bestie DEMI, Amanda & Karo’s🍑.)
Next few lines are meant for the one who calls me SONNENPRINZ out of fun & adore. Sonnenprinz means SUN PRINCE in German. Meeting someone 7th time in 6 years, actually 4th time since May-2021. She drives 5 hours to drop me at airport & airport is just 30km away from my house.😂 I must agree that 45-minute drive from my house to airport is pure banter. I still don’t know what i am bringing to the table, but the vibe is 🔥🔥🔥🔥. I love it when a girl questions or corrects my knowledge on engineering & business. Basically i love it when someone proves me wrong. Conversations are healing & communication is a sexy thing.
If your body is telling you to avoid certain foods and eat more fruits and veggies, do it. If your gut feeling is telling you to distance yourself from certain people and get closer to those who have a positive aura to them, do it. If your heart is telling you to travel, explore a beautiful place, start a new project, start a business, spend more time in nature, take a break, read this book, & be with that person who vibes with you, just go for it.
Your higher self knows what’s best for you. So don’t ignore the messages. LEARN TO LISTEN YOURSELF.
Be HONEST, that’s the easiest way to earn respect in a relationship/business or any kind of equation in this world. No one will deny that honesty is essential. In fact, it’s been important throughout all of human history to gain someone’s respect. You must first gain their trust by being honest. Why would you respect or trust someone who’s known to cheat lie or steal! Dishonesty is not a good look in any setting, whether it’s with the cashier at the grocery store or a longtime business partner.
If you want to earn respect, you must always be honest. Successful people know that if the foundation of a relationship either personal or professional spilt a trust, they will have solid ground to stand on. If that ground is cracked with lies or is crumbling due to deceit, the relationship is doomed.
Once in a while one friend or another asks me this question: “Tap, what you do when you are stressed!!?”.
OK. This one has two solutions for me; 1. Figure out who/what caused stress & kill that reason behind it silently. 2. Lift weights, do some 200 push-ups, look at my imperfect 5-pack abs in mirror, talk to my PhD research associates to figure out who is running ahead of me, login to my amazon seller portal to see how many boxes of whey protein we sold today, then have a pint of my favourite low calorie sugarfree ice cream in sea salt caramel flavour while watching Tom and Jerry.
Two easy ways actually. Most of the time i prefer the 2nd one because murder is still illegal. In case i get the opportunity to kill someone without getting punished, i would love to kill my bestie bitch by leaving her inside a huge bucket in any snowy swedish village during 2070 winter. If you are one of my close friends, you already know i am a simple stupid sober sassy person who is unaware of all emotional melodramas. Nobody is big enough to hurt me or give me stress. The worst things a human can do is; LIE. Every liar falls in line with every negative prediction. And i bet, after a while they seem fun & funny because of their repetitive pattern of lying. Fuck fake goodness. Tappie loves real people with clean intentions & bad will always work if it’s real.
Sometimes my friends ask “How/why am i good for my business?” Answer: Not because i am super motivated or fully dedicated, but because i am excited, self aware, funny, i always keep on reminding myself that my desires are my purpose, which makes the business look good & grow, employees/workers work with a delightful smile. Reason behind all is my believe in material growth.
One thing you can never point out in me is “MY CONSISTENCY”. Let me answer “the HOW”. I learnt it from my WORKOUT. Following fitness as a lifestyle choice is the biggest DISCIPLINE. Do you know why a person who’s going to gym is going to gym every single day without missing it!? There is something called DOPAMINE which hits you right after every workout creating wonders in head, heart & mood. When your workout gives you results, you never want to lose the streak of getting better stronger sassier. During this corona situation the only thing i missed is going to gym. Yes i was doing some 2-300 push-ups & squats in my house, but that never helped my hunger to lift weights. As i mentioned “DOPAMINE”; when your efforts show results, it’s a bliss to do what you do. Condition: you have to be CONSISTENT towards your desires & goals whether it’s fitness, studies or business. Whoever said it, said it right “CONSISTENCY IS THE KEY”.
Gut feelings is something you should not ignore while making difficult decisions. People often tell you to just listen to your gut. We all have a sort of sixth sense and knowing what is right or wrong and whether or not the decision we are making is a good one. All of the information that you process subconsciously triggers a physical response that you shouldn’t ignore. These feelings are the most primal of impulses and evolutionary end. It’s hardwired into us and their main purpose is to protect us. It’s very important not to dismiss warning signs from your subconscious as it picks up much more about the environment around you than your conscious mind does and it can help you make better decisions. So here few examples on how to work on your feelings.
Being drawn to someone is common. There are positive gut instincts you should pay attention to. One of them is the urge to help another person. Even if there isn’t an obvious reason why someone would need your help. Your brain picks up on body language, tone and other indicators that can suggest the opposite. It doesn’t cost anything to ask someone if you can help them in some way. Besides it’s human instinct to help others and make a difference for someone if we can. Other times you may get the feeling that someone could just be the key to accomplishing some goal or dream. You have your gut tells you that this person will be important in your life whether it’s as a friend, romantic partner or business partner. Getting to know them could lead to an amazing opportunity. If you feel this pull towards someone, you should probably act on it & strike up a conversation and see where it leads.
Follow what you feel. (Said by my bestie bitch when i was going through a rough patch). Tap OUT..🤗
Business is not a game of money for me, i started with a purpose & i am loving the journey. Most people struggle to figure out priorities which results in a poor choice of living. There is no such mantra/shortcut to success. START SLOW & FINISH STRONG. Have little expectations from others & huge faith in yourself.
While building business my standard is customer’s preference, not the competitor’s product. Even while a pandemic is raving our world, I was lucky enough to grow throughout this year 2020 little stronger stable every single day. 2021 and it’s a long ride, i don’t have enemies but i have competitors. That’s all i can say about the reason “why i usually get bored of random people time after time & my contact block list keeps on increasing”. I have a small group of friends who keep pushing me to reach my higher self. When i say “my people”, i mean my people who are smart, caring, driven, funny & i swear i am sold. Life is fun, let it be.
