Here’s your weekly edition of Steve’s Sunday Selections! Once again, we’re focus on mostly Internet Marketing principles and personal development. Let’s get started…
When it comes to stress, most people live in such a constant state of it, that they rarely acknowledge the pressure it puts on their lives or bodies.
However, place a ‘eu’ in front of the word stress and you suddenly have a powerful word that pushes you towards a better life.
Let’s begin with a definition…
Here’s your weekly edition of Steve’s Sunday Selections! This week primarily focus on Internet Marketing principles and personal development. All of the following posts can be found on sites that I suggest you check out on a regular basis…
Ever since I made proclamation to nut up or shut up, I’ve been pretty busy with implementing my “escape plan.” Like I mentioned in the post, my intention is to travel through Europe for an indefinite amount of time and prove that you mix extended travel with work.
So here’s an update on what’s going on…
“Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”– Franklin D. Roosevelt
I’ve met a lot of people who live their lives in fear. They’re afraid to take chances. They’re afraid of what could happen. And they’re afraid of looking like a fool.
Bottom line is many have a fear of failure.
We all want something. It could be a new car, a different job or the ability to work from the comfort of your home. You get the point. What you have to remember is this— Wanting something doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily get it.
In order to realize your dreams and potential and to make the most of opportunity you first have to have a clear vision of what you want. This means, that it has to be more than just something you think about it.
Today I want to talk about the Japanese.
Before you start yelling out sushi requests, let me clarify myself a little bit: I want to talk about the way that the Japanese make cars.
This post has been sitting in rough draft form for a few weeks. To be honest, I wasn’t really sure if I would ever have ‘The Cajones’ to let anyone see it. I know that once I press that magical publish button, my private affairs will be aired for everyone to see.
At the end of the day, I’ve come to realize that this site is about personal growth. And if I’m afraid to be honest about everything in my life then I’m just another phony person. To grow as an individual you sometimes the times when you screw-up.
Also I’m a little nervous because some of things that I’m about to discuss won’t make me a very ‘likeable’ person. But I’m willing to risk not being liked in order to connect with the people who’ll resonate with this message.
Okay with that preamble out of the way, let me talk about something that’s had a huge impact on my life during the last few months…
“Actually, I’m an overnight success. But it took twenty years.” — Monty Hall
If you’ve ever read James’s site TheInfoPrenuer you would see that he puts a ton of effort into it. In fact, in yesterday’s post he detailed how he spends an average of 4-5 hours a day on top of his 60 hour work weeks. This averages out to be almost 100 hours of work. Yikes!
I’ve known a lot of people over the years.
At one point my childhood friends were my whole world. Then when I got to high school I hung out with people from the track team and the marching band (Don’t laugh.)
In college, I spent time with people that were in fraternity/sorority scene. And once I got into the “real world” I ended up forming friendships with whoever was around me.
Do you dream of one day retiring and being able to enjoy life on your terms?
If you’re like most people then you probably answered ‘yes’ to this question. The problem is you live in reality where bills have to be paid. So retirement is probably a far away dream.
But there’s a way you can start retiring today while still making money. In this post, I’m going to discuss the concept of “Mini-Retirements” and explain how it really is possible to get more out of life while still earning a sizeable income.
Welcome to another edition of Steve’s Sunday Selections. There has been a lot of great content written this week, so it was pretty hard to decide which ones to select. With that said, here are a few of the many quality posts that I’ve found on my favorite blogs:
