Scholar & Warrior

2 Identities-7 Guideposts-1 Great Life

  • Words

    I love books. I share insights from favorite books to set you thinking, working and make yourself better. Books are where I found adventure together with the Film Industry where I always wanted to make Films.

  • Videos

    I create videos on the 7 Guideposts. I also find and curate select videos that I am learning from online. Many times, I add my own comments and insights about the video.

  • Brainstorming

    I am on a Journey just like you but sharing my brainstorms, thoughts and insights. I think you find them helpful. Not all will work for you - but I hope you find all stimulating to find your own path.

  • Charging

    A key element is to 'charge your brain battery' and fill up your Heart with inspiration and insight. No soldier will try to 'take the hill held by the enemy with logic - much too stupid. But Humans do it time and again because they seek Inspiration and put their Heart Forward.

  • Your Path

    I encourage you in setting a Big Goal. This is your WHY. Why all the hard work? Why getting up early? Why sacrificing now for a better future for your, kids, family, country? The Path is one you will choose with a powerful WHY.

  • Martial Arts

    The Warrior means martial arts where I draw a lot of my Focus, Systematizing and Discipline. Remember that both Gandhi and Reverend Martin Luther King were both warriors in a non-violent manner. You can be too in your own Path.
