And since I know all too well how painful not living life on purpose is — I wanted to give you final post getting to the bottom of this, which will end this 5-part series on this topic.
So why aren’t you living life on purpose?
– it’s not because you haven’t tried
– it’s not because of the economy
– it’s not because you didn’t go to college
– it’s not because your Mom and Dad weren’t there for you
– it’s not the Republicans’ fault
– it’s not the Democrats’ fault
– it’s not because of where you live
– it’s not because you can’t afford to
Over the last 18 months of my life, I have read at least 2 books a month. And I have never read a book that I didn’t learn something from.
But that’s because I don’t just read any kind of books — I read personal development books (including the bible). Books that will help me grow as a person, challenge me to think, and expand my horizons. And as a result, not only have a become a better person — I’ve become a better blogger, a better mentor, and my online business is doing better than it ever did before.
All from reading about 30 minutes to an hour a day (sometimes hours and hours) I have changed my life. A lot of my old friends who knew me back when I was a knucklehead can’t believe the man I’ve become in such a short time frame. And they always ask “How did you do it?”.
But when I tell them all I do is read and pray everyday — they don’t believe me. But it’s the truth! That’s all I do everyday outside of working on my online business and hanging with the fam.
And if you want to know why and how it works, below are 21 reasons you need to read everyday. Keep Reading…
All of my life I wanted to know why do certain people fail in life and certain people succeed. Growing up, I’ve always had confidence in myself that I would succeed in life at whatever I chose to do.
I knew that whatever I set my mind to, I could it. It wasn’t just a cliche for me, it was real. But it wasn’t so real for people around me. In the neighborhoods I grew up in, the idea of success seemed to just be paying bills on time. Everyone had a “struggle mentality”, and thought that true success (the American dream we see on TV) wasn’t attainable for everyone — only for those who born into better circumstances
But I always begged to differ. My mom instilled a “winning mentality” in me at a young age that carried over into my adulthood. And although, I chose to follow my friends down a path of drug dealing for years of my life, that “winning mentality” never left me.
It stayed with me throughout all of the trouble I got myself into growing up, both as a teen and a young adult. And one day, I woke up and I decided to actually use that “winning mentality”. I had studied successful people who had what I want and I discovered that success only comes from habits. Those who have habits of success become successful, and those who have habits of failure, will become failures.
And that is what I want to share with you today. Below are the top 10 habits of people who fail and people who succeed in life. Keep Reading…
