Sri Lanka Worlds End

As the sun sets on 2023, I find myself at a poignant crossroads, nearing midlife, where the urge for drastic changes gives way to a deeper appreciation for the gifts I already possess.

In the words of Socrates, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

This year has been a testament to that philosophy – a journey of intentional living and mindful growth.

Celebrating Health and New Goals

This year, my most significant triumph was in the realm of health. I achieved a long-awaited goal of increasing my weight (muscle mass) from 59kg to 65kg.

This milestone wasn’t just about numbers; it was a commitment to myself, upheld by visiting the gym thrice a week for six months and consuming 3000-4000 calories daily.

As Marcus Aurelius once said, “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.”

My journey in 2023 was a physical embodiment of this wisdom.

For 2024, my plan is to maintain this weight and pivot my focus towards enhancing flexibility, mobility, and core strength.

Physical health is not a destination but a continuous journey, and I am excited to explore the realms of tennis, Calisthenics, and perhaps even martial arts.

Expanding Horizons and Nourishing the Soul

This year, I ventured into Parkour, Pilates, and Yoga, each teaching me the art of balance, strength, and inner peace.

In 2024, I aspire to delve deeper into culinary arts, marrying the joy of cooking with the essence of eating healthily.

Meditation, currently a 10-15 minute daily practice, has become a cornerstone of my tranquility. Next year, I hope to attend a meditation retreat, deepening this practice and enhancing my spiritual wellbeing.

Cultivating Relationships and Personal Growth

In 2023, I focused on nurturing relationships – spending precious moments with friends and family, and strengthening bonds with my partner.

I read extensively on topics like gratitude, care, and relationship dynamics, constantly learning to be a better companion.

On the self-development front, over 50 hours were dedicated to studying MBTI (cognitive stacks) and Enneagram, which is useful for understanding cognitive processing, communication, and core motivations and fears which drive behaviors.

I plan to spend 2024 deep-diving more into psychology, philosophy, sociology and if time permits, topics like art, history, politics, etc. This better helps me understand myself and the people around me.

Financial Stability and Community Growth

With my finances securely on autopilot, and with more than enough resources to live the rest of my life, 2023 was less about financial growth and more about managing my portfolio for consistent returns.

My goal was not to spend a crazy amount of time trading or tracking the markets, instead it was to generate 5-10% returns a month consistently with minimal time and effort by using proven setups and systems (15 minutes a day).

This stability allowed me to focus on “Synapse Trading”, supporting my growing community through the “Trading Mastery Program” and the “Daily Trading Signals”.

In 2024, I aim to continue delivering value and guiding others in the upcoming crypto bull market, to help everyone in my community attain financial freedom as soon as possible.

Wanderlust and the Joy of Travel

Travel remains an unquenchable passion, and a big part of my life. My dream is to eventually visit every country in the world (the safe ones), and I am only half way there having visited 70+ countries.

In the coming year, I plan to spend two months exploring new destinations and revisiting cherished ones, embracing the beauty and diversity of our world.

Personal Musings for 2024

  1. How can we continue to grow and evolve while remaining grounded in gratitude for our current blessings?
  2. In what ways can the pursuit of physical health and mindfulness positively impact our relationships and personal development?
  3. How can we balance the pursuit of personal goals with the commitment to uplift and support our community?

As I look forward to 2024, I am reminded of a quote by Henry David Thoreau, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”

With a heart full of gratitude, I step into the new year with a commitment to live intentionally, love deeply, and explore uncharted territories of self-growth and community contribution.

And as I embrace the new year, I carry with me the lessons of the past and the hope for a future filled with purpose, connection, and joy.

Let’s make 2024 a year of meaningful pursuits and heartfelt connections!
