Picture this: You’re home alone, it’s quiet and you’re about to go to bed. Do you sleep with the TV on or a loud fan? If so, it may be safe to assume that the sound of silence bothers you. Or maybe you’re single and the idea of being alone scares you. Learning to enjoy […]
Today is my 30th birthday. Crazy how fast time flies. Today was normal as usual. I woke up, went to an appointment, came home, watched some Champions League Footy and then went to the gym after a hearty meal. During today’s workout I was able to have some time for reflection: Here are 20 things […]
It’s been approximately 10-months since my last fitness journey article and I must say, I’m quite disappointed in myself. Not because I didn’t work out between now and then but because I wasn’t keeping promises to myself. Some slip ups happened… and partying and traveling. The last article I posted was my 60-day weight loss […]
I have a confession to make: traveling alone scares the living crap out of me. At least the idea of it does. I’ve never traveled abroad by myself. The most I’ve ever done was travel to Miami for a 3-day layover trip before heading to Saint Petersburg, Russia for the FIFA World Cup. I don’t really count Miami as a solo trip since I met up with an old friend there.
I wanted to gain a perspective of what advice others would give to their former selves. Although I could have done a simple Google search, I decided to ask my social network. I turned to Facebook and asked, “what advice would you give to your younger self?”
If you want to lose weight, find a trainer who’s in shape and follow their plan. Looking for love? Stop listening to your unhappy single friends and instead go have a chat with an older couple and see how they’ve managed to stay in love for so long. Trying to find a business mentor who has the success that you want, along with the other values you align with? Good luck with that.
Self-love is a very interesting topic. Whenever you begin to praise yourself publicly, others may get the notion that you’re being conceited or expressing some form of narcissism––or at least that’s what I believe. Regardless, self-love must be practiced. How else can you love others if you don’t full love yourself? Here are 10 things […]
There’s a lot to love about life but how often do we take the time to recognize what we love? I’m feeling a deep sense of gratitude this morning, so here’s a list of 100 things I love about life. Enjoy!
Money, cars, clothes, jewelry, exotic vacations, penthouse living, mansion parties, yacht sailing, being young, good looking––I wager that these are all common ideals of what being successful is to the masses. And while all very admirable goals, how do any of these give back to humanity?
Everyone wants to be accepted for who they are, yet don’t really know who they are to begin with. They really just take on cyclical habits imposed upon them by past experiences. I myself have a hard time accepting people for who they are. I know that sounds harsh but let me explain..
Internal conflict is a real issue that many of us deal with on a daily basis. In a world driven by glitz and glamour of social media, seeing someone else’ perceived life of luxury can be a bit depressing from the view of your bedroom. While others are traveling the world and seeing all of […]
Money makes you happy only when you’re happy with how you make your money. Yup, read that line again and let it sink in. I recently wrote an article with how I made over $10,000 knocking on strangers doors. That particular article got a lot of traffic and shares because of the number $10,000. For […]
The phrase “all in” is more or less known in poker. When one player is up against the fence and needs to make a play to drastically change the outcome of the match. Their chip lead is slim to nothing and they need a big up fast. With everything on the line, they decide to […]
Living above your means is the greatest thing you can ever do for yourself. While it sounds entirely unorthodox and downright stupid (even scary at times) it’s a GREAT thing. You’re going to read the rest of this article thinking I’m a lunatic at first but stick with me till the end and I may […]
The deposit(s) hit your bank account and a feeling of surreal reality hits you. You stare at the number and think to yourself, “holy shit.. I did it.” And for that brief moment, you’ve reached a level of success you knew was possible. You feel on top of the world. And then.. it’s gone.
You’re hanging out with your friends in some social setting. It’s a Friday night. Scratch that. You’re actually out and about having lunch with some friends, sipping on some wine or a beer. Whatever your poison is. As you run through the formalities, conversation starts to get a bit dull as you relive memories of […]
Name brand companies only have power because we as the people continue to give them power. While they rake in billions of dollars, making business moves to please their share holders, we as consumers continue to purchase their products in the name of being socially accepted. But what if we changed the status quo? What […]
It was the year 2010 and I had just started my first blog. I was younger, hungry for knowledge as I still am today, and wanting to know whatever it took to make money online. Like many other open minded individuals scouring the search results of Google, a common thread I started seeing was all […]
If you’ve ever been stressed out, unhappy, not reaching your goals as soon as you expected to like I was – then you probably need to take a Northern California Road Trip. Why? Well for starters road trips are amazing. It’s you and the road, your friends, and no real agenda for what’s going to […]
