I’m a failure. A professional failure. I’ve failed at everything you can imagine. Marriage. Business. Friendships. Everything.
However, after failing so many times, I came to some very powerful realizations that your life isn’t defined by failures or mistakes. Setbacks through failure are meant to help us grow rather than to hold us back. Because I’ve failed, I’ve also found ways to succeed by staying persistent.
Through it all, I always wanted to improve my life. Like you, I didn’t want to be considered a failure. No one wants that. But I was willing to take the risks to achieve outlandish goals because I was serious about improving my life. I was serious about setting goals and creating plans and taking persistent action to see things through.
And I know that you are too.
That’s why I created this blog. I wanted to share my experience. I wanted to share what I learned by failing and to highlight the fact that failure is meant to fuel us rather than hinder us.
No matter what anyone tells you, or how they try to hold you back in life or bring you back down to their level, so to speak, you can quite literally achieve anything with the right mindset and habits to see things through. And that’s precisely what I hope to teach and convey to you guys.
I’m not perfect. Never was. Never will be. But I have learned a lot of life’s lessons through failure. I’ve learned how to keep my mind focused, even while dealing with tremendous amounts of pain. I’ve learned how to generate an income, even when I felt like I was backed up against a wall with no way forward. I started a business while traveling the world across dozens of countries and shattered through my old limiting beliefs by simply tweaking my behavior in key areas of my life.
The truth is that we often feel so pressed for time, like we have a million things to do and simply no possible way to do them, that we just get frustrated. But I’m here to help guide you along so that you don’t throw in that proverbial towel.
In fact, another reason why I created this blog was to help readers like you better understand what they want out of life and how they can get it. Whether it’s to lose weight, make more money, start a new business or whatever it might be.
The problem that I saw was that there were a lot of blogs out there created for self-improvement, but they were all a bit thin in the form of content. They never went into detail about how to do things — they didn’t add enough value. They would cut off right when it was getting good. That frustrated me immensely so I committed to not doing that here. That’s why you’ll find that I deep-dive into concepts like goals, habits, skill sets, business marketing and so on.
That might be why every month, nearly 200,000 people visit this site to learn how they can set goals, improve their habits, better manage their time, and to ultimately achieve their dreams. That’s exactly what I want to help you do — to achieve your dreams. I want to help you avoid getting discouraged by things like failure or bad habits and just about anything else. I sincerely want to help you see the forest through the trees.
So, I hope that you enjoy the content here. I hope that you stay awhile and engage in conversations through the comments. I hope that you share useful posts with your friends and that you improve your life, achieve your goals and accomplish everything that your heart desires. That’s what motivates me. And I would love to hear how any of the content has helped you out in your life.
I hope that you enjoy reading the articles as much as I enjoy writing them.
