  1. @Vignan I don't know about outside of Europe, but within Europe all DLSR cameras, as in photo cameras, have a video recording limit of 29 minutes due to taxing reasons. If you want to shoot videos for hours on end you'll need to get a video camera rather than a photo camera. If you want a photo camera that can also do long videos, try the Panasonic GH4, which is quite popular. But your best bet is still a video camera.
  2. @LeoX8 That's great that you meditate. Don't stop. You are lucky to be only 16. Take advantage of that. Be disciplined (it's not as easy as it seems) and start work on your Life Purpose. You'll be doing your future self a huge favour. You'll look back at this part of your life and be so thankful that you put in the hard work so early. You'll be tempted to slack off, because it seems like you have so much time ahead of you, but don't - time speeds up the older you get. I'm 23 and I'm already struggling with this feeling. This is the best advice I can give to you. Discipline yourself and don't stop, because next thing you know you'll be a lot older and regretting the fact that you wasted time.
  3. @LeoX8 How old are you if you don't mind me asking? When I was a teenager I obsessed over the fact that I need to look good and get a partner, but now that I've been in a couple of relationships I realise that it's such a trivial thing to worry about. Concentrate on your life purpose, things like relationships will still happen regardless, just let it happen when it happens. Don't think about it too much.
  4. @Nahm I think, from my understanding, he is asking if he should make his clients feel smart by him pretending not to know things so they don't feel threatened by him and, in turn, become loyal. So, in a way this is manipulating them for (in his opinion) a positive outcome.
  5. @Giulio Bevilacqua Wow, great music and video. Well, it seems like you already have made substantial progress with your band. If you keep pushing that, who knows what kind of music you'll be making in 10 years. If you continued on your mindfulness work on the side, your music might even gradually lean towards that, who knows... If you love making the music, I say you should stick with that, but hey, what do I know, I'm just a random guy on the internet.
  6. @Giulio Bevilacqua Hmm. I'm almost at the end of the course, and I'm still fighting between film and music. In the end I think i'll choose film, because it ultimately includes all of my passions: photography, writing, and music. I don't know what type of music your band does, but you could create music with the theme of mindfulness. If that's not the type of music you do, then you could teach mindfulness in your lyrics. If not, then maybe you'll need to choose between one or the other. You could focus on one, and do the other as a side thing. If you picked your band and have success with that, i don't think you'd have time to become a yoga instructor, but you could still totally continue mindfulness work in your spare time. And vice verse, if you chose the instructor route, then you probably won't have much time to work on your music and become as successful. It all depends if you can find a way to combine them, in my personal opinion.
  7. @Giulio Bevilacqua Which two areas would you want to combine?
  8. @Sleyker De nada amigo
  9. You could go to your local library or internet cafe if internet's a problem, but there are a few videos that require you to be alone in a room with your eyes closed to limit distractions. So for those ones I recommend doing it at home. If at any time the video is buffering, use that time to think and take notes of what you've learnt so far.
  10. @LoveandPurpose Get good grades. Push through it for the last three months. Afterwards, you can do what you want.
  11. @Nahm I don't know what you mean. Could you explain more?
  12. @Nahm Each person could have a different reason couldn't they? But i think it comes down to self-validation
  13. @Nahm because they themselves are fighting their own battles
  14. @Nahm I said it was because they're insecure and want to make themselves feel better or to impress others
