Here’s the unfortunate reality of the world: most people don’t take the time to stop and think about or create the life they really want. Instead, they just get stuck in the life they’re already living.
It feels like what they know is all they can ever have. That their past and upbringing is the ultimate determiner of their future.
However, Tony Robbins has brilliantly said,
“It is your decisions, not your conditions, that determine your destiny.”
Indeed, if you decide who you want to become, you can often create any life you want. As the remainder of this article…
Most people look at people who have achieved extraordinary results in their lives like Tiger Woods or Gary Vaynerchuk and assume they can’t become one of them.
They may think the life they created was simply a matter of luck or good fortune. However, in truth, the only thing out of the ordinary for these people were the actions and choices they made. As Benjamin P. Hardy writes,
“Outsiders may view the hyper-successful or influential as “different” or “special.” …
Author and Entrepreneur Grant Cardone has a quote that says: “Most people have no clue what they are doing with their time but still complain that they don’t have enough.”
What he’s saying is absolutely correct. How often do you hear someone complain that their life isn’t heading in the direction that they want because they haven’t got the time?
Of course, it’s always something else: “I can’t workout because I’m tired all the time.” “I can’t make time for my passion project because someone always wants me here or there.”
However, everyone gets 168 hours in a week (7…
There’s a quote from an unknown source that says, “If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, what you want becomes the sacrifice”
Of course, there’s a lot of people in the world these days who say they want to accomplish something, but yet their behavior shows the opposite.
They say they want to be a writer, but never actually put any words to the page. They say they want to be a world-class athlete, but look at their life, and they’re doing nothing but playing video games all day.
The clear truth of today is that many people talk…
Many people today will overcomplicate productivity and tell you that it’s about installing apps, deleting emails, and ticking off to-dos.
However, Jim Rohn had brilliantly said: “Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.”
If you follow even just a few of these basic productivity fundamentals, you’ll get the most out of everyday. Here we go.
Here’s the truth: most people will read self-improvement content and get nowhere. Their life will continue to be the same despite taking new knowledge and inspirational ideas.
However, why is that? How can two people read the same book and one uses it as a platform to change their life, while the other simply stays the same?
Obviously, it’s not the material that fails people. Instead, it’s a difference in people’s attitudes and behaviors.
Specifically, this is why self-help doesn’t work for most people.
“If you want to transform your life, you must be willing to give up the one…
“If you ask most smart or successful people where they learned their craft, they will not talk to you about their time in school. It’s always a mentor, a particularly transformative job, or a period of experimentation or trial and error.” -Ryan Holiday
Ryan Holiday’s words are true. I studied accounting and became a writer. Elon Musk studied economics and physics but became a space engineer.
Schools teach you that life is linear and that everything takes a natural progression. However, you don’t have to follow a traditional path. …
Many people mistakenly believe that it is algorithms and quick hacks that create successful writers. However, if we’re really being honest, these are simply excuses that people use to justify their lack of success.
In my experience, creating successful content is a principle-based and repeatable process. Hence, those writers that we consider to be “successful,” tend to only become increasingly more successful over time.
The remainder of this article will explain the concepts behind their thinking and writing process. Here we go:
While most writers are merely putting thoughts to the page, the most successful writers are focused on leaving…
“After talking with so many high performers, I have to confess that I hope you meet with judgment and friction. It’s a sign you’re on your own path and aiming for great things. Indeed, if no one has looked at you sideways lately or, better yet, said, “Who do you think you are? What, are you crazy? Are you sure that’s a good idea?” then maybe you’re not living boldly enough.” -Brendon Burchard
When the world’s working against you, it feels like nothing can ever go your way. Anything and everything that could go wrong, seems like it is.
Your life has begun to echo more bad news than it does good news. You desperately want to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but just can’t.
Each time you begin to make an ounce of progress, it feels like you're just taking one step forward followed by two steps back.
So, how do you keep going? …
