About zaid k. dahhaj

Hi there, I’m Zaid Dahhaj. I am a writer, philosopher, athlete and personal growth enthusiast. 

For the duration of my life, I have always been inspired and amazed by excellence within all domains of life. As a result, I decided from an early age to embody this excellence myself.

My original career plan was only to play soccer professionally, yet after the natural unfolding of life’s events, I committed myself to become the best version of myself within all domains.

I specifically love speaking about self-discipline, health, excellence and wisdom.


The following top 5 strengths are where I thrive most:

  1. Love of Learning: Mastering new skills, topics, and the bodies of knowledge, whether on one's own or formally; related to the strength of curiosity but goes beyond it to describe a tendency to add systematically to what one knows.

  2. Perspective: Being able to provide wise counsel to others; having ways of looking at the world that makes sense to oneself/others.

  3. Curiosity: Taking an interest in ongoing experience for its own sake; finding subjects and topics fascinating; exploring and discovering.

  4. Self-Regulation: Regulating what one feels and does; being disciplined; controlling one's appetites and emotions.

  5. Appreciation of Beauty & Excellence: Noticing and appreciating beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in various domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience.  

These are the strengths that I will serve you with so that you can become the most magnificent version of yourself.
