We’re Here to Put a Dent in The Universe

“We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”

Steve Jobs

Do you want to know what really grinds my gears? All those who live quiet lives, all those who go to their graves with untold stories, with unfulfilled dreams, with broken hearts.

All those who are afraid of failure.

All the people who are so afraid of falling that they cut down their own wings, never to be able to learn how to fly.

That’s what makes me upset, that’s why I am writing these words.

George Floyd’s Death: It’s Not Us Versus Them

On Monday evening, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a forty-six-year-old black man named George Floyd died in a horrific and terrible way.

As it’s not my goal to detail the events, you can read more about what happened here.

I’m not in the business of passing judgement, or trying to explain who did what and why, but there’s one aspect that I’d like to write about: the fact that we often forget the most inalienable of human rights – human decency.

An investment in Knowledge Always Pays The Best Interest

“If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”

Benjamin Franklin

In November 2012, I could finally call myself a full-time blogger. I was earning anywhere between $100 and $800 per day, averaging an income of between $5,000 to $12,000 per month.

I felt invincible. I felt that there was nothing else I had to do. I had reached the top of the mountain.

I stopped reading other blogs with the goal of improving my own writing, or to be inspired. I stopped reading books. I stopped investing in my education. I stopped investing in myself.

That wasn’t a smart move.

You see, education, learning, knowledge — you lose it if you don’t improve it.

The world is changing at an accelerated pace: even if you’re on the road to success, you will get run over if you aren’t fast enough.

That’s what I didn’t get for most of my life. Education is not something you accumulate and will remain in your head forever. It’s the same as working out: you need to do it on a consistent basis in order to stay in shape.

If you can’t wait to get out college, so you never have to learn anything at all, I am sorry to tell you this, but all the years you’ve spent learning didn’t teach you much.

The more you learn, the more you earn.

The more skills you develop, the easier it is to adapt to an ever-changing economic environment.

What You Don’t Know about Success

Success is a word gets thrown around a lot. It’s become meaningless. We all want it and the definition of success is different for everyone.

Some of us want a beautiful family life. Some of us want a successful business. Some of us want lots of money so we can exchange it for goods and services.

To make matters worse, society has developed a set of tools to help you become comfortable. To have what you want, when you want it, which is right here, right now.

We have lost track of who we are supposed to be. Life and success are harsh. Unless you are will to fight like hell for what you want, then you’ll never be successful.

Consider this your wake up call!

It’s time to stop fantasizing and do what you have to do to get what you want.

Whatever your definition of success is, you’ll need to have the following 10 elements:
