What are you doing to get your name out there? How are you branding yourself? Well let’s assume that you are on some type of social media platform already. So there are so many that you can choose from, so here is my type five.
#1.) Facebook: Not only is this a platform for pointless non-sense but Facebook can get you noticed real fast. Facebook has everything from PPC, ads, events that you can promote and pages created by you or a business that you have.
#2.) Twitter: Short and to the point, Twitter allows you to say something when you don’t have time to blog.
#3.) LinkedIn: LinkedIn is probably my favorite platform by far because it allows me to connect with business minded people, each and every day.
#4.) Google+: This platform is sort of like a combination of all three above, it’s still kind of new in the social media world but that means that you can use this to your advantage.
#5.) YouTube: Right now, YouTube is the most used platform in the world by far. It’s even more popular than Facebook in some aspects. I mainly use it for reference and self-education but I plan on expanding my personal brand in the near future with Youtube.
There is also Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Vine, Snapchat, Reddit, Flickr, Periscope, Medium and Foursquare just to name a few. Now my top five are very good but this is about you and your needs. Start with one to test it out, you can also start a blog too. Blogging will get you noticed as well but if you use just one of those platforms you’ll be a branding machine. By the way, if you are reading this, then you just received proof that it works.
Hey guys, If you are like me you hate Monday mornings. Here’s a little tip that will give you a boost of energy to start your day and not its not coffee or sex its, vitamin c and h2o
Vitamin C does wonders for the body as you may or may not know like, repairing body tissue; assisting in better bone development; better immune system etc. So if you are a workout junky, then vitamin c should be a part of your daily consumption. I take vitamin C chewable tablets in the morning, its way cheaper than buying orange juice every other day.
H2O do I really have to explain this one…? Okay, okay, just a little. Now, most people get 6 to 8 hours of rest every night which is good. I’m lucky if I can get 5 hours sleep, but some doctors agree that 5 hours of sleep is sufficient.
So anyway if you do get 6 to 8 hours of sleep at night, that is a long time without any fluids in your body. You may think because you are resting that your body doesn’t require it, but that’s way wrong. The first you should do after you get in the morning is drink a glass of water. NOT COFFEE. Trust me if you both of these tips every morning you will have a boost of energy that no amount of caffeine can give you.
Everyone has their version of what the real American dream is. Some may say that becoming a famous football, basketball or baseball player is the dream. Then there are others that say becoming an actor or music artist is the way to go. So whatever the American dream means to you I believe that at some point family, freedom or function will be the starting point for your success.
This is by far the most important aspect to gaining great success in life. Where would most of us be, if we didn’t have a family? When you involve your family in your potential business endeavors, what eventually happens is that you will notice a change in the attitudes. Your wife will have a new found respect for you. Your kids, for those that have kids, they will find you to be more fun to be around with. This is a journey that I’m still discovering to this day. Just think for a second, what if you didn’t have family at all. What would you do? Well the answer to that is to make one. I mean that by saying hookup with like minded people. If you still have a day job, then attempt to go to them for support and if you still can’t find anyone then, you might as well just jump off a cliff or something because I don’t know what else to tell you. I’m kidding of course….please don’t commit suicide. But do kill self-doubt. Back to my point, when you have someone that sees that you are trying to become better, hold on to that person don’t let them go.
Ahhh…freedom,the very word that this nation was founded on. Every man desires some sort of freedom in life. But the kind of freedom I’m talking about is the free to do whatever the hell you want to do and when you want to do it. This is a mindset that you must adopt because it will be your guide from here on out. In order for you to get what you want, it is required that you do the hard stuff first. This is where most men fail because right when a change is about to come, they stop doing what got them there. We say things like, “I just don’t have the time”, “its costing too much money” “no one will help me” “this is stupid, I knew it was a scam”. These are the roads to a man’s failure. True freedom puts you in control of your life.
You got to have fun in order for you to function. What’s that point of working hard toward your dreams, if you are not having fun doing it. For example, if your goal is to be a great writer but you don’t want to write everyday, then chances are you won’t enjoy doing as a business, not only that you will probably suck anyway…Your job or your business should always and I mean always be enjoyable for you in some form or fashion. The most enjoyable moments for me in my line of work is actually helping people personally. Not when I was told to do the job but just the ordinary joe blow walking the streets. But anyway men, we are often too uptight and serious about stuff. Take a chill people and for once can we think with our brain and not our nuts. Your relationships will improve dramatically if you incorporate more fun in it. Fun is the cryptonite to stress.
Life is a fight of wills, a never-ending battle of good versus evil. Every day we wake up, we have to decide what we want to do today. Some of us have to get to work, while others don’t have a job to go to. Life is not full of fun and games, it’s a formidable foe that is relentless. Only the strong shall survive in this battle and the ones that don’t they loose hope. The fight that they once had is no longer there. When life deals a powerful blow it can take all the fight out of a person. These are the people you see every day, like a cancer victim. Yes, it’s a terrible thing to have such a disease but there countless of people that didn’t give in. They fought to the very end, some even defeated cancer. That’s the funny thing about life, it will throw all sorts of stuff your way. Drugs, alcohol, sex, money and death. Life has no mercy it will not stop, ever…
AND YOU SHOULD’NT STOP FIGHTING EITHER!!!!
When you are in the ring of life, which starts as soon as you are born there are so many challenges that lay ahead. But with every challenge, one must have motivation. Without motivation to face it, you will be defeated. So, what’s challenging you today? Really sit down and think about that for a moment. What’s stopping you from being the best thing since sliced bread? You may laugh and you should because laughter sends positive emotions to your sub-conscious and in turn relieves stress. But that’s a whole another topic. But yeah think about it. Not just pause for a moment, no…. because your brain is doing too much already. When your relaxed, calm, at ease with no distractions everything that wasn’t clear will be easier to attain.To me, boxing is more demanding physically than any other sport because a boxer has to train his entire body to lay punches and take them too. Not being good at football, baseball, basketball or hockey means that you will more than likely not make the team. Not being good at boxing will get you hurt because it’s a solo effort that puts you in that ring to battle..!!
That’s how you need to approach life and all obstacles that come your way. It’s just you, no one is there to back up and save you. Life has the prize belt and you are the contender. Nobody likes you, nobody is cheering for you, they want you to loose and loose bad. You must understand and retain this in your mind that even though you have people in your life that love and care for you; it is still your life. Yes, the support of loved ones helps a lot but what if you didn’t have that. There are way more people against you than you realize it. They want to see you fail in every aspect of life, so they can say “see I told you so”. See, life is the champion and it has so many tactics to hit you with that you can never be prepared. And I mean never…
This is where you come with your counter attack and the never quit attitude.
Life hits you with an uppercut, you fall on your ass. Now you’re dazed confused laying on the ground, its count time. Will you get up, can you get up? YES…. you can get up, life is shocked it just laid its signature move to K.O. you. But you got back on your foot, you kept pushing, you didn’t stop. You took blow after blow after blow from life’s arsenal of weapons. You want that prize belt, you want to knock down life this time because NOW you truly believe you can…
This is how you must approach everything that comes your way.
Greatness is within you!!!
Everyone has their own way of dealing with stress, so what’s yours? Do you let your stress affect the place where your work? Do you bring stress from work to your home? Is stress stopping you from wanting to do more with your life? The point is that if you let stress take over your well being then, yes it will consume you and anyone that is around you. I pretty sure you have heard that a single person can light up a whole room, maybe you know someone like that. So when we start stressing about bills, work, relationships it sends a negative energy that can sometimes be as strong as positive energy, if you let it.
What you have to understand is that everything runs on some type of energy. Your energy towards life will dictate how you progress. Listen, there is one thing that you must always do, each and every day and that is absolutely nothing. That’s right, take a few minutes out of your day and evaluate what you’re ultimate goal is. Goals keep you positive and gives you a sense of direction. Cause it’s very easy to lose focus when things get tough. Just remember, stress is just energy that’s all. You can’t destroy it but you can control it. Take for example a fire, if you let that fire keep burning, it’s going to get bigger and hotter. A fire can get so hot that water seems to have no effect at all and it can take hours sometimes for it to be controlled. So don’t become that out of control fire.
