Raise the value of your YES

Grow some I’m saying NO.   I’ve been too easy. I’ve pleased too many for too long. I’m moving past old notions of insecurity and hesitancy, and just saying it. I’m saying NO to consuming meaningless internet. NO to mindless meetings and events. NO to substances that fog my mind. NO to time-wasting and toxic people. I’m saying NO to a lot more too. I’ve found that when you say NO, you raise … [Read Entire Story]

Focus on those who love you

 “Generalized fame is overrated.”  – Peter Thiel Kevin Kelly was on the mark in 2008.  He still is today. You don’t need a million followers; 1000 true fans will do quite well.

Be flexible on the details

Be uncompromising on your vision, but flexible on the details. Focus on your purpose, keep your vision top of mind, and be ready to fill in the gaps. Learn to bob and weave. Roll with the punches and then strike when the opportunity arrives – because it will. You can’t plan all the details, because life always brings surprises. But you can prepare, you can stay receptive, you can be highly self aware. – We’ve been working on a new website! Whenever we read these posts, we’re inspired… [Read Entire Story]

Most will settle for less

Never stop learning Most seek entertainment, not enrichment. Most seek diversion rather than development. Most settle for average instead of extraordinary. Extraordinary people pursue continual education. They seek to learn, to hone their skills, to improve their knowledge and expand their capabilities. Your unparalleled preparation is what gives you power, what enables you to be extraordinary. Few will pay that price, most will settle for less. – We’ve been working on a new website!

Thoughts are just thoughts

Thoughts are not facts They’re just thoughts. Next time you jump to a conclusion, and feel yourself spinning into a negatively charged spiral, step back. Check to see where your head was when you made your conclusion. Are your thoughts true?   Are they absolutely true?  How do they make you feel?  What would your life be like if you didn’t hold on to them? Put some space between you and your reaction to your thoughts. Change your relationship between what you happen to think at the moment and what is factual, what is true. Become more mindful. – We’ve been working on a new website! Whenever we read these posts, we’re inspired to write our own private thoughts. Now you … [Read Entire Story]

Begin now

Don’t prepare. Begin. The enemy isn’t your lack of preparation. The enemy is your chattering brain. It’s your brain telling you to wait, hold off, practice some more.   It’s all those nanoseconds of mental noise telling you that you’re not quite ready. It’s the deluge of alibis and excuses, of you justifying why it’s not yet time. Move past your hesitancy. Resist the chance to draw back. You’ll never be fully ready, you just need to be ready enough. You can catch up once you’ve started. So begin. Begin … [Read Entire Story]

Why just go with the flow?

Only dead fish go with the flow. – Welsh proverb When you’re just coasting along, and everything seems to be going great, beware. Stay self-aware. Life is meant to be engaged – every day.

Paint outside the lines

Paint outside the lines There’s little to be gained following someone else’s formula, someone else’s design. When you’re required to paint within the lines – however expressed in your experience – it’s a warning sign that you’re living under someone else’s plan. Sometimes – however temporary – you find yourself under another’s plan. Make it short. Know this: The better life is when you improvise. The better life is an improvisation.

I’m a loser and a phony

“I’m a loser and a phony; my life is worthless and so am I.” – Steven Pressfield, from Do The Work Ever feel that way? Ever feel that if people knew the real you, they’d run, fast, in the other direction? You’re flying high. Loving life. Running on all cylinders. Then things start to unravel. In a series of seeming micro-moments, you neglect being self-aware, you compromise the authenticity of your true self, you lose focus on your intended purpose and direction. And wham, you’ve fallen from your intended path. Welcome to the… [Read Entire Story]

Fix your brain

“You can run from your problems, but not the flaws in your thinking.” – Tai Lopez Most of your problems start within – between your ears. You have to first fix your brain in order to fix your problems.  That’s where you start when you want to fix your life. You have to learn to think critically, and begin to think critically.  You have to expose and remove all the fallacies,  wrong assumptions, and preconceptions you’ve been clinging to – all the stuff holding you back.  You have to let go and start again with better thoughts. – We’ve… [Read Entire Story]

Your time can wait

Don’t one-up Adding your story to someone else’s story can destroy relationships. It will undermine your personal presence and credibility. We’re all guilty of adding that final remark. It too often arrives in a less than thoughtful, unconscious moment.   Sometimes it’s the competitor in us, and sometimes it’s our seemingly innocent attempt to fill a pregnant pause in conversation. Stay mindful. Let the other person enjoy their moment in the sun. The time for yours can wait. – We’ve been working on a new website!

Don’t limit me

Do more than evolve. – Magnus I’m beyond evolved, I’m transformed. Beyond mere forward progress, beyond a passion for life. Beyond awareness and knowledge and lifestyle. Evolved is too focused on wearing attributes; transformed is about making critical choices, about taking action, surmounting difficulty – about taking on the challenge to change my life and my world every day. I’m more than an amalgam of popular traits. Every day I’m driven by the hunger to excel, to achieve, to deliver value to myself and my world. Every day I step forward and take new risks, push myself harder and farther, persevere in the long game. Don’t limit me by what’s … [Read Entire Story]

Love everything that happens

Amor Fati Love everything that happens. Life has a way of just showing up.  When it does, it’s time to discard expectations, accept the reality, and move on.

Develop a healthy fear

“Fear being in the exact same place next year as you are today.”  We say we’ll change.  We promise that next year will be different, things will get better.  And then we keep churning.  Develop a healthy fear of staying static.  The status quo is a freefall into nowhere special. The only way next year will get better is if you step off the treadmill and do something crazy this year.  Why not today? – We’ve … [Read Entire Story]

Who sold you on realistic?

“Ninety-nine percent of people in the world are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things, so they aim for the mediocre.” – Tim Ferris The one percent club has an exclusive membership.  While the club is open to everyone, few will join.  All you have to do is dare to dream bigger dreams, dare to believe they’re possible,  and then dare to act. Or, you can settle for the small stuff. You can accept less than what life  offers.  You can say you’re just being realistic.  But if you settle for less, please explain: Who sold you on realistic?   – We’ve been working on a new website!
