🧠Psychological Exercise Of The Week


The Behavior Kickstarter is a combination of Habit Journal, Behavior Formation Masterclass, and a collection of carefully chosen Positive Psychology Exercises.

📚Book Of The Week

Dane Alighieri (1265 – 1321) was an Italian poet who taught me more about the architecture of good and evil than any psychology professor I ever had.
He is famous for writing The Divine Comedy which is one of the best books of all time.
The poem is about the author himself, who undertakes an Abrahamic adventure, which leads him to visit the souls in hell, purgatory, and paradise.
This book, like no other, will teach you about the horrors that await you if you fail to make a covenant with your conscience.
Reading Dante will equip you with a sophisticated philosophy of good and evil that you can use in order to fight against that which is preventing you from being the person you could be.

🌎The Nomadic Scholar 

The nomadic scholar is a content format in which I share with you travel tales, life lessons, and personal stories that I collected while I adventured around the world in order to find answers to the question; What constitutes a good person and how can I become one?

⁠I met this garbageman when I was vagabonding around Istanbul in order to collect teaching tales with my friend Atakan.

When I noticed the garbageman, he was bathing in a ray of light while sitting on a park bench with closed eyes in order to allow the orange sun of the orient to replenish his soul. ⁠

The reflection of his warning west made the pearls of sweat on his forehead look like they were liquid gold, it was obvious that he was exhausted from his heavy labors.

I stopped and observed him for a while until he eventually felt my gaze.⁠

When he opened his eyes he smiled at me with everything he had for what felt like a long time.

Without saying a single word, his aim wandered slowly around the park square in which we were standing.

It was as if he was taking my eyes on a journey to show me the fruits of his labor: a litter-free piece of his beloved home Istanbul.

He eventually ended our visual bond by nodding in a dignified manner and I tried to emulate his gesture in order to express my gratitude towards him for taking such great care of his corner of the world.

Even though our encounter was brief and wordless, I felt that the garbageman in Istanbul taught me something that I and my people have forgotten: Real heroes don’t wear capes.

My generation has suffered from a decay of values that resulted in us admiring idols in regards to how much they have rather than how much of themselves they give to their families and to the world.

Real heroes and heroines rarely drive around in red Ferraris, they take the bus early in the morning when the sun is still sleeping.

They don’t wear the finest clothes, they rather dress themselves in faith, courage, diligence and love.

Their hands are not soft, but they can do what needs to be done.

They can’t articulate themselves as eloquently as the people from the movies, but they speak the truth when they open their mouths.

They rarely have much to give, but they always give everything they have.

And maybe that’s all we all need to be.
