What Happened to the Business I Restarted?

People who win, know that they’re going to win from the start — or at least they’re mostly optimistic about achieving success than they are about failing. –Paul Scott Jr.  I’ve always known in my gut that I was meant to do something great.

Are You Crippled by Opportunity?

  Today, I already started allotting an extra 2-hour block in my day to income producing activities.

Motivation is Nice, But You Don’t Need It To Start

I’m not always motivated to write. In fact, yesterday, I sat down at my computer, listened to half a YouTube music playlist, was on the verge of starting and decided, “Wait, I need my green tea.” I went downstairs boiled the water, steeped the tea, went back upstairs, decided it was chilly and needed a…

Who Am I? The Real Me vs. The World Me

  Two days ago, I wrote the post, “I Finally Got the Answer I Was Looking For.” I said the answer I was looking for, I already had it… which is a bit confusing. How did I have the answer and not know it? It’s complicated. There’s a small voice that’s been speaking to me…

Take a Step Backward to Take a Step Forward for Life

August 24th, 2017. That was the first day I wrote on Medium. It was 136 days before my 30th birthday and the day I started my daily writing challenge. I was still in Costa Rica then. I remember it being late in the evening and as I was in bed leaning back on my pillow…

There is No Better Time to Start Than Now

  This morning was the 12th episode of the podcast. As odd as it may sound, I’m finally used to getting up at 1:30 am to do the episode and then going back to bed shortly after Last night we talked about CM Barrett’s post, “Is it Too Late for Something New?” It’s filled with so many awesome…

If We’re Not Ready, We Can Destroy the Things We Want

  Lately, I’ve been having a great feeling about everything. I was trying to pinpoint the source of it this morning. Well, for one thing I am on day 14 of the affirmations I wrote about, so that’s a part of it. But I think it’s bigger than even that. The more and more I continue…
