Day 12: Difference Between Winners And Losers

“Losers visualize the penalties of failure. Winners visualize the rewards of success.” -Dr. Rob Gilbert — Yesterday, I wrote a letter to myself explaining why worrying about failure is just plain ol’ dumb. Then, 15 minutes ago, I saw this quote. It’s funny how life works sometimes. We see something just when we need to. …

Day 11: Why Are You Terrified Of Failing — An Open Letter To Myself

Why are you terrified of failing? Are you worried that you’ll lose all your money? Have to live under a bridge? Your wife will leave you? You’ll be the laughing stock of those around you? Seriously, is that why? Because honestly, you sound ridiculous! None of that would happen. Here’s why… In terms of money …

Day 10: Not Wearing A Jacket Is Making Me A Better Entrepreneur

A few days ago I talked about the Stoic practice of intentional discomfort. Since I want to be the best Stoic possible, I started using this practice. This past week, I sat outside in ~25 degree, windy, weather in socks, lounge pants, and a t-shirt. I set a timer for 5 minutes. Then I would …

Day 9: Neediness Kills Your Mojo

Snappychat (as I like to call it) is mostly worthless. I’m only on it for one reason. To follow Ben Settle. Ben is my idol in the copywriting world. He’s the reason I started writing every day. In fact, everything he says is gold. Ben wrote a book called “Persuasion Secrets Of The World’s Most Charismatic …

Day 8: Imposter Syndrome — My Brains Best Friend

Sometimes, I feel like an imposter. I’ve been successful in every job I’ve had. For cryin’ out loud, I’m 26, and own a business. Yet, somehow I feel like I have nothing of true value to share. It’s not because I’m a fraud. That would just be lying. But, my brain wants me to believe that every …

Day 7: Stoic Secrets To Getting Your Mind To Cooperate

So, we established yesterday that your brain doesn’t want you to succeed. It wants you to stay safe, by staying exactly where you are. Sure, you may not be incredibly happy, but your brain knows that you’re alive and safe. And that’s enough for it. Let’s talk about one practice that you can adopt to …

Day 6: Why Your Brain Doesn’t Want You To Succeed

Do you think that your brain is actively working to help you achieve more? If you said “yes” to that, then think again, ’cause you’re absolutely wrong… On a fundamental level, your brain is actually working to keep you from progressing. No, seriously, that’s happening as we speak. Trust me, I was dumbfounded the first time …

Day 5: Creating Motion One Step At A Time

Learning to walk is a long process. It can take weeks, if not months, for a child to learn how to walk. Never, in the history of humankind, has a baby been completely immobile, and then been able to walk the next day. First, babies learn to shift their weight. Then comes crawling. After that, …

Day 4: Psych Secrets To Getting Started

I don’t watch many shows, but when I find one that I like, I am dedicated to it. I watch it non-stop, many times over, until I stumble upon something else. I become passionate about shows that I like! That being said, I decided to jump back into the USA network show “Psych”. Now, in …

Day 3: How Much Knowledge Do You Need Before You Start?

Do you need to be the forefront expert on a topic before you start a business related to it? No! A great piece of advice that I have received from many successful entrepreneurs goes something like this… “You only have to know more than the person you’re teaching.” Pretty impactful, right? I sure hope that hit …
