Writing (for) The Masterpiece

A couple of weeks ago, I was accepted as a writer for the online-magazine The Masterpiece.

I submitted my first article. The magazine dismissed it with a handful of suggestions on how to write essays of higher quality.

I followed the suggestions and submitted another piece that was accepted.

This piece also contained some minor flaws. The magazine´s host, S M Mamunur, edited and published it.

Do Not Wait

What exactly are you waiting for?
Do you have an appointment with something? Your future self?
So, what if it never shows up?

What if it waits for you to do the first step?
What if you need to create it first?

What I do know for sure is that death will show up instead some day.

Write here! Write now!

Write here! Write now!

Lovely penpals, writers, bloggers, authors, scribblers, poets, and readers!

I cannot express how grateful I am to be a writer, too.

A couple of weeks ago I had a crazy day:

  • I received the proofreading of my book for adjustments before the book set and publication.
  • I got the design of my new business card for my new coaching business, which in my head really is the same thing.
  • I was nominated for a blogger award.
  • and I got an invitation to publish in an online magazine.

That happened all on the same day.

That happened all on the same day.

Giving = Taking

What we put into the world, we add to the world.
The world is our environment, so we add to our environment what we put into the world.

If you want to live in a good environment, then bring good things into the world.

By pointing your judging finger at somebody and by saying they were or did wrong or by badmouthing something, you become the badmouth.
Through your negative judgement and belittleling words you let bad things get into the world, into your environment.

How to be happy in a rotten world

The more I read and learn about happiness and a successful way of life, the more I believe that it is crucial to stay away from the „news“ and negative propaganda.

If it is true that every soul creates its own reality in 3D, and I believe it is true, then we must consciously choose our surroundings, the people and information we allow to enter our lives.

If we want to take care of our surroundings, we cannot let the biggest 4-6 News-Agencies in the world rule our lives.

News agencies need to sell newsworthy material. That is their highest priority agenda.

It has been found out that positive headlines don’t sell as well as negative ones. Of course, all leading news-agencies aim to sell big, and that is why they have become what they are.

I am now a Writer for An-Idea on Medium!

Medium

A couple of days ago I was invited to write for a publication on Medium.
It is called An-Idea and it is very young and still small.
It was such a lovely surprise to me, since I publish quite rarely on Medium – and actually not especially eagerly.
There are only two handful of articles that I shared on Medium.

To be honest, I didn´t think that my writings, that come in German most of the times, could find a publication there.

Investitionen

Investitionen

Warren Buffett wird der Satz nachgesagt
„Wenn Du nicht bereit bist, eine Aktie für 10 Jahre zu halten,
solltest Du auch nicht darüber nachdenken,
sie für 10 Minuten zu besitzen.“


Als ich ihn zum ersten Mal hörte, war das nur ein weiterer Hinweis, dass Aktien und Brokerage nicht mein Ding sind.


Heute sehe ich es anders – so wie ich mich in anderen Lebensbereichen voll committe, so kann ich auch in nachhaltige Finanzprodukte investieren.
Das ist ein guter Satz von Buffet, kann man ihn doch auch auf andere Themen im Leben anwenden:
Freundschaft, Beziehung, Sex, Gesundheit, berufliche Partnerschaften, usw.
Für wirklich wichtige Entscheidungen scheint mir die Überlegung – „Will ich das die nächsten 10 Jahre so haben?“ hilfreich und plastisch.


Ich bin, also kreiere ich

Mein Blogtitel „Ich kreiere, also bin ich“ gefällt mir immer noch ausgesprochen gut.
Ich erinnere den Moment, als ich ihn eintippte, ohne Vorstellung, was da jetzt auf mich zukommt, und mit dem Gedanken, „ach, kann ich ja auch ändern, wenn mir der Name nicht mehr gefällt“ …

Inzwischen bin ich soweit, dass ich die Umkehrung „Ich bin, also keiere ich“ genauso wertvoll und gut finde. Pragmatisch und zutiefst menschlich: Weiterlesen „Ich bin, also kreiere ich“
