Life Is Not Hard, It Doesn’t Have To Be

We try so hard to be happy, to be someone important, to make a name for ourselves. However, along the process we lose touch with our true self and get caught up with this thing called “life”. People tell us that we have to work hard, to suffer if we are to succeed. But it doesn’t have to be that way, what if we could hack the system, what if we could live the lives we want effortlessly?

Basics of Mongolian Alphabet

The official modern day Mongolian writing system is Cyrillic. It’s similar to many Slavic and Central Asian countries that use the Cyrillic alphabet, but it has the additional Ө Ү as vowels which is unique to the Mongolian language. Before using the Cyrillic alphabet Mongolians used to mainly use the traditional script and at one point in time even Latin, for further reading check out: Mongolian writing system. The vowels and consonents are as follows.

Why Mongolia Needs Liberal Arts Education

It’s a quiet Saturday evening. I have a water bottle next to my side and a few sheets of paper. Sheets of paper that give a glimpse into the interests of the newer generation of Mongolian youths. I have been blessed with higher level education and the opportunity to learn, which many of us take for granted or dream about.

The Alchemist – 8 Important Life Lessons

The Alchemist is by far one of my most favourite books. You can find many important life lessons that you can apply to your own life. The book itself is a story of a young shepherd named Santiago seeking his own personal legend, in other words, his purpose in life. While on his journey he is faced with overbearing obstacles and challenges hidden with a deeper meaning. Here are the things I found most inspiring. FINDING YOUR PERSONAL LEGEND The book starts with Santiago, a young Spanish shepherd’s repeated visions of a hidden treasure near the Egyptian pyramids whenever he dozes off while grazing his flock. Sensing there has to be a significant meaning to his visions, he goes to a Gypsy fortune teller for advice, in which he is instructed to go to Egypt to find his “hidden treasure”. The boy is hesitant, but after realizing he’ll never be…
