Theme: The Mind Palace

This event occurred on

Isn’t the mind a very beautiful construct.
Your mind palace as we describe it is what defines you.
Let’s take a peek inside it.
What do you have in yours?
A living room full of memories and nostalgia, a ceiling intertwined with emotions, a playground full of hard work and determination, a basement with your deepest fears, a garden with flowers of ideas ready to bloom, or a terrace of hopes and dreams.
Whatever it may be, it is what makes you unique and can help you conquer the world.
You tap into your mind palace and it can show you your entire life - the past, present, and even the future in the sense of your next steps. With the decisions you take, you choose the way you stock up your mind palace and ultimately choose to invest in yourself.
