Why don't people act on what they say?

99 life wisdoms that will lead you to true greatness

Have you eaten today?

I don't mean your body. I mean your soul Has your soul eaten today?

Yes, there is food for the soul. Namely: life wisdom.

These wisdoms are like bread for our inner being. They make your character grow and take you to a new level.

If you take these wisdoms seriously and implement them, then you will leave mediocrity behind and strive for true greatness.

Wisdoms are pointless?

I know many people who can memorize the lower wisdom of life in their sleep - but they don't live by it.

Such people have a "PhD" in fitness but are lazy, fat, and live on the couch. They are professors of wise words but do not act on their words. You talk about goals but do nothing for them. They are not living their dream, but their fear.

And that's exactly what I don't want for you.

I don't want you to just read the lower life wisdoms, nod twice, and then go on like you did before.

I wish for you that you change your life, that you grow and become successful.

Find the courage to act on these words.


Right away.


Not tomorrow. Not later.

But today.


That is more valuable than any idea.

The best thing to do is to pick out a single piece of wisdom and put it into practice. When you've done that, you go on to a second one.

I do it the same way. One after the other.

And now:
