Why training every day gives you joy, love and freedom

Last week, I reached 366 days in a row of Tai Chi, 355 days of Qi Gong and 42 days of Kung Fu. And I have been meditating every day since 2015, with some exceptions, blogging daily in 2012, 157 weeks in a row publishing a podcast. For me, there is nothing behind these figures; there is no joy or criticism or judgment; it is just training — I will judge myself when the last breath comes.

Instead, there is only love because, for me, self-discipline is love.

Discipline is the self-imposition of order in the midst of chaos, and…


Porque está dentro de ti esperando a ser despertado

Un llamamiento para que despierte esa bomba atómica que hay dentro de ti. Una llamada para ti, si estás leyendo esto es que tienes algo dentro de ti que desea explotar. El potencial humano ilimitado. Lo he visto en Stand OUT Program, en el micro-MBA Inconformistas, y en el Porgrama de Excelencia para Desempleados. No es fácil, requiere determinación, voluntad, capacidad de resistencia y disciplina, pero una vez que empiezas a superar tus límites físicos primero, luego mentales, para dejar paso a superar los emocionales y finalmente los espirituales. …

Many people now is reading this from home, many busy and many not so much. Be that as it may, there is another great opportunity for many, practising self-discipline and using this chaotic times to train it and ben strengthened with its superpowers.

How to train and improve your self-discipline from home?

I have designed a small Ultraproductivity system, especially for you:

  • Meditate for 15 minutes upon waking.
  • Cold shower for 2–3 minutes.
  • Read a book for 10–15 minutes.
  • Write about the reaction that you read or what is in your head caused you, and do it for 10 minutes.
  • Do 30 minutes of sports in the first hours…


El poder de repensar

¿Vives plenamente? ¿Qué es lo que te hace vibrar como nunca antes lo has hecho? Y ahora ¿qué es lo que en lo más profundo te agita y te hace vibrar hasta tal punto que entras en un estado de ”flow” absoluto? Me pregunto si eres capaz de señalar tres eventos o historias de tu niñez donde sintieras que no eras lo suficientemente bueno/a.

Si ahora mismo nadie estuviera mirándote. ¿Tendría sentido el trabajo que estás haciendo? Si nadie viera tus fotos en Instagram ¿tendría sentido subirlas? Si nadie te animara o estuviera pendiente de ti, ¿seguirías adelante con tu…

Ser imparable es quizá algo muy complejo, que casi nunca se da y en la mayoría de las ocasiones no sirve de nada ¿Por qué? Porque ser imparable depende de la percepción de otras personas, en el 95% de los casos. Y eso será inalcanzable, a menos de que no seas una estrella del pop molona, un deporta idolatrado, un motivador con millones de suscriptores o un autor legendario. En cambio, sentirte imparable es otra cosa completamente distinta, sentirte imparable tiene que ver con tu propia realidad, con tu percepción propia. Tienes que ver con todo lo que haces y…


The 21 questions that will help you this year

2021 can be a year to forget and lose your mind, or it can be a day to recap and reflect, or it can be a day to conclude and draw The Way.

If you are one of those who go for option one, well, you have to uncork a few bottles of your favourite alcoholic beverage, eat much more than you can digest and commit any other type of excess. In other words, surrender to the banality and superficiality of those times.

If your option is the second one, you can write about the highlights you have lived and…


Shaolin Temple Europe: what can you learn embracing the Shaolin lifestyle

As I started my month-long digital and professional break, I started by seclusion for a few days at the Shaolin Temple Europe. The goal was to live under its precepts, philosophy and routines through a special program called “Bootcamp”, an intensive program. It was based on Shaolin practices.

Living with Shaolin monks at Shaolin Temple Europe

The experience has gone beyond what I could imagine. I was not going with the idea of achieving anything, nor was I going to exceed any limits or challenge myself. Although I have not only encountered that, but I have had to use myself thoroughly; physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally (in order of demand), almost more than in any life experience I have had in recent years.

To explain this “peak experience” (life experience), I have prepared a summary that contains the aspects that caught my attention, learnings and lessons, discoveries, impressions, quotes, explanations, stories and most relevant conclusions of…


Sea lo que sea, lo vas a tener que hacer tú primero

Es fácil sobresalir cuando tienes una plataforma ya preparada para lanzarte, no lo estando cuando no la tienes y tienes que construirla tú mismo. Si estás recibiendo este chispazo, es posible que estés construyendo esa lanzadera, acabes de empezar, estés a punto de acabar, o que todavía ni siquiera hayas comenzado porque no sabes cómo o desde donde empezar. Lo que está claro es que si estás leyendo esto es que nadie ha construido esa plataforma por ti, igual que me sucedió a mí. No es nada alarmante. Todo lo contrario, cuando eres consciente de que nadie lo hará por…


How turbulence, fear, uncertainty and failure are your best friends

When I hear, read or see the word limits, all I see is an open door that invites me to rediscover human greatness.

Example:

2020.

The most turbulent year — economically speaking — since it began to climb in 2012. It was not until the end of the year that I was able to “save” it.

I count more than 1,200 defeats, failures, falls, failures or whatever you want to call them.

On the other hand, more than 3,100 small and medium victories, achievements, triumphs or successes.

More than 2,300 learnings — at least the ones I have been able to count and record day after day.

I count more than 1,900 things that I have realized that I had not “seen” before-

Esto va para ti, enhorabuena por otro año más, persistiendo, esforzándote, creciendo, intentando diferente, luchando, resistiendo. Colosal.

Maravillo cada vez que veo a personas como tú sobresalir, triunfar y empujar.

Aprender a ver lo que sucede a tu alrededor te da perspectiva para valorar el trabajo, el esfuerzo, la pasión y la valentía de los demás. Lo que sucede es que aprendes a disfrutar del resultado de otros, es algo digno de experimentar.

Es algo que me sucede con el “dominio” que las personas que formen IG poseen sobre cada una de las áreas que hace años permanecían desconocidas para…
