Sean Abraham - School Adventures
School or grade one was about 2 minutes walking distance from our place of residence. The first day was not as I imagined, meaning my mother left me with some unknown people to take my first steps into independence or let’s say locked away into the education world without my permission. As the school progressed, I found meaningful relationships with whom I preferred
I became actively involved in soccer for the recreational part, from there came distractions for most of my in-between breaks from school. Also, my persuasion to go to school and maybe learn something. I encountered many challenges and limiting beliefs that stopped me from learning, growing, and caring.

Sean Abraham - Manifesto!
I swear I will enjoy, love, live, and create lasting, envious memories. I will not regret, and I will not bow to the slavery of any kind. I will enjoy the freedom and opportunities given to me by money, animals, fellow friends, and nature.
I will destroy traces of sadness and negativity in my life, even if it means to ignore the very people I love. Life is both long and short; do not waste it on others who will not align with your views.
Use human psychology to create lasting relationships with lovers, friends, and enemies.
Differentiate by pondering the good things in life and choose wisely. Discard, empty your brain from useless information, release the inner imagination to create a mindless behavior.
Assertive individuals are self-assured, even-tempered, and resistant to stress. They don’t worry too much, but this differs from apathy. They aim for goals and want successful results, but they typically won’t let nervousness color the path to their accomplishments. They’re unlikely to spend a lot of time thinking about their past actions or choices. According to Assertive personality types, what’s done is done.
Assertive personality types learn lessons from their personal histories, but they see little purpose in entertaining the same regrets again and again.
However, problems may arise for them if their confidence turns into overconfidence. Assertive individuals may gloss over problems or details that can interfere with their goals and desired results. They may lean toward assuming all will be positive. Assertive people also sometimes presume they are free to do much more than others would allow or tolerate. If overconfident, this personality types may come to believe their confidence overshadows what others want.
Question, Answer, & Solution: What are you most passionate about?
I am passionate about travel, learning new things, achieving milestones, playing sports like table tennis, soccer, swimming, badminton, ultimate frisbee. A new favorite of mine is meditation. The passion stems from having dwelled in many situations that provided me freedom of choosing careers at the airport, cruise lines, business ownership, solo travel, romantic relationships, and friends who have been there to see that side of me.
I have dedicated wholeheartedly to anything I have put my mind into, and sometimes that has given me the advantage to either pursue it further or stop it at its tracks. Passion changes from time to time, it tends to get stale after a while. Finding new passions can also be in itself a fulfilling feeling.
Question, Answer, & Solution: What three words could describe you?
Spontaneous, Intellectual, and socially awkward. :)
Question, Answer, & Solution: Who is someone you admire, and why?
I admire Sherlock Holmes and his abilities, they may not be realistic but it gives me a perspective of how much is around us that goes unnoticed and we could deduce a reasonable scenario through our observations. Being able to understand a scenario without having to ask questions is interesting.
There are plenty of reasons we meditate or try to become more aware of our surroundings. The reasons lay in finding and getting tuned to our senses. The more we feel about every situation, the further and deeper the experiences become in life. To put the words into perspective, just like when we savour our favorite food, place our full attention to an interesting conversation, become awed in a beautiful place, and that can be feeling the negative situations as well, like the loss of a loved one.
Admiration of a person needs to be explored as well, just so we know that this is the right admiration that is improving us.
Question, Answer, & Solution: What would be your ideal job?
The ideal job would have a lot of travel, surrounded by a team with the same goals, the company should have a happiness chief officer, and lots of vacation time. I think this is something that needs to be built from scratch. I feel like these types of companies are almost like fairytales. Well, the ideas are not aligned with business goals, which is monetary profits.
I think the ideal company could have the right amount of extrinsic values if enough thought and strategy gets placed into creating it. Although people's ideal careers can change from time to time, it is the norm for the majority to have the fundamental things in life.
Place to stay, food, friends, partner, money, achievements, progress, learning new things, creating a bucket list, short-term goals, long-term goals, physical health, safety, intellectual conversations, defying status quo, practice delayed gratification, travel experiences, food experiences, spiritual experiences, and many more! Is that too much to ask? :)
Question, Answer, & Solution: What is your definition of “happiness”?
My definition of happiness stems from accomplishments, peace of mind, warm weather coupled with winds type of place, a companion, a dog, a quiet area for the times of the day I need to meditate and forget everything and remember everything.
Defining happiness and the state of it is not a straightforward task. I think defining happiness can place an understanding where your priorities lay. I think there are plenty of reasons as to why I have changed careers or moved from place to place. The reasons are because I have lost my sense of belonging or happiness in the place and its people. Happiness can be a challenge specially when we do not control certain outcomes. These outcomes can be work lifestyle, associations with people, memory triggers from certain places, family members, and other factors that stimulate our chemicals in our brain and body.
So be happy, interested, and feed your curiosity! :)
Question, Answer, & Solution: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am proud of having learned English at a young age and graduated from a school in Canada. The opportunities that a language and a passport can offer are definitely worth the time and investment. I think that most people don't realize the struggles that one can have when not having either of these two intellects.
I am one of these lucky people who never really had the difficulty of knowing otherwise. All three languages I learned at an early age, education was completed in Canada, and passport for travel freedom was handed to me, basically.
Question, Answer, & Solution: What is your greatest fear?
The greatest fears I have are being distanced from the "right" people. A fear of being alone, but from the people that make me feel a sense of belonging. I have been in placed that is full of people but never felt more alone.
In this long life, I have had chances to fear my loneliness and learned that fighting with my mind to make it feel at ease is an ongoing struggle. I have thought about travel to quench the thirst of my mind, but all I needed was to sit still and tackle the problem dead on.
Question, Answer, & Solution: What is your greatest hope?
I hope to completely rid of financial burden, almost there :) - Even after that, I am already doing all the things that I would do if I was in that situation.
Question, Answer, & Solution: What are three most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
Create memories, love unconditionally, no regrets. When I say create memories; it is because I reminisce these and they become part of my happy place. Love unconditionally; because everyone deserves to be understood without judgement, and bring that kind of energy with every person, I regard that as the highest form of love. No regrets; We look back at our lives and think, "what if I could have done something differently?" but rather just focus on the present and the future. We have learned from the past and that cannot be changed, so there is no point in dwelling in it, just focus on the opportunities that you can create.
Lessons in life are learned through mistakes and decisions we took from a long time ago. They are part of our identity and they cannot be changed, so when you regret a decision, if you are in an unpleasant situation, you had bad luck, or any other form of negative thought, know that it will pass. It will stay with you, it will define your future, and it can be used for your benefit or if misconstrued it can negatively affect you.
Question, Answer, & Solution: How do you want people to remember you?
I want to be remembered as the person who followed his own path and didn't allow others to influence my decisions. I have been down this path where others have asked me to follow a path for my own good, but in the grand scheme of things, I refused. There were forces that prevented me from following these paths. I am grateful that I listen to my subconscious, intuitions, and these have paved a strange path, but nonetheless a path I can actually hit the majority of the tick boxes in my life's bucket list.
