The 1% better manifesto* is a list of principles, beliefs and thoughts for people that believe in constant improvement, spiritual harmony, being resourceful to the next person and want to change through  positive habit creation. 

  • Deus Sive Natura. Nature is god and god is nature. We are all connected to each other. (Spinoza)

  • Your mind and your body are the exact same thing. The state of your body shapes your mind.

  • There's more of you inside yourself. Explore that everyday by doing one thing that feels uncomfortable

  • Make mistakes as quickly as you can. Don't be a "what if kind" of person since success might be on the next corner

  • You are what you think. Keep a positive mind and use as many positive triggers you can find in order to prevent negative thoughts

  • All the answers are inside yourself. Be proactive and don't complain about where your life is right now. Own your destiny and change things 

  •  Fear is the only enemy worth fighting for.

  • The present is the most important moment of all. Your decisions today determine your past and your future. Think before you act and be present 

  • Go after solutions with an empty mind. Do a daily search for your personal Sunyata. At least 5 minutes everyday.

  • Have your actions represent your words instead of the other way around

  • See what has been built under a rational perception. Then go crazy on new stuff

  • Don't be afraid of living life by your own principles 

  • There is not a separation between pleasure and work. Try to mix both in something called life.

  • Stay committed to your goals. Revise them every now and then.

  • Make lists. Create projects. Commit to actionable small goals and reward yourself once you've achieved them. 

  • Less is more. 

  • Principles such as ethics, character and good moral will always bring back good things

  • Help people without expecting anything in return 

  • Kick mediocrity in the ass. Become an ever-evolving ecosystem with no comfort zone.

  • Respect other people and take care of your relationships with them. Love is extremely important. You won't change the world by yourself

  • Always take the minimal desirable approach and execute even if it's an extremely small step. Procrastination is something dangerous

  • Feed your projects with purpose and idealism not revenue and shareholder value. They will come naturally

  • It's ok to be sleep deprived sometimes if you stayed up doing something interesting 

  • Know exactly what you don't want in your life. Then, all the rest can be faced as another learning experience

  • Find different mentors for different moments in your life and help them help you and remember that mentorship is a two way street

  • Listen more and talk less

  • As Thomas Edison once said: "geniuses are 1% inspiration and 99% transpiration".

  • Idea-only individuals are dead. Either you learn how to execute or they'll eat you alive.

  • Perfection is a mandatory never achievable goal.

  • Become status-quo destroyer.

  • Be a well mannered misfit

  • Add more value than what you can capture

  • Believe in small well disciplined changes for habit creation

  • Be 1% better everyday
