Self-knowledge has become my filter in this world of abundance. It helps me to see things that are meaningful and say no thanks to things I don’t need.

The better your self-knowledge is, the better you are in choosing what you should concentrate on.

Investing in self-knowledge is the key to health and happiness. It’s like writing a rough guide to living your life. A guide that will help you through small and big decisions of your life.
