"Look well into thyself; there is a source of strength which will always spring up if thou wilt always look." ― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations The invisible string that holds people back to dare to do what they've always dreamed of, the invisible thing that instills fear in to the hearts of the brave, when under self-doubt. This invisible thread, the truth of human expressions is a lack of self-confidence or self-esteem. These two things are actually closely relative, yet not completely the same. Self-confidence is the way one believes in himself and the way he does things, where self-esteem is how worthy you think you are to others around you. While self-esteem is a state of mind on what others think of you, self-confidence is something more than it and the very essential spark that when lacking leads to the doom of one very talented person. Self-confidence is all about the way you present yourself to others and take it from me; people do judge you by our outer personality.

One of the bad things that I’m guilty of is not taking care of my health. Since April 2009, most of my time was spent working from home in front of my laptop. I have set up a small home-office, but at times I would work from my couch, from my bed, or sometimes from a coffee shop. One thing that is common about all of these situations is that my sitting posture is not good. It keeps changing according to the place where I’m sitting. In the last 4 and a half years, my posture started changing. In a recent visit to my doctor, he suggested me to actively work on my sitting posture if I wanted to avoid severe back pain in the future.
