Is happiness the key to life?
For many, it is. But it’s so easy to get caught up worrying about our own happiness.
We can actually turn happiness into an idol that we worship, without even realizing it.
I’m not going to go into the religious implications of that, but I’m sure you would agree that idols aren’t the healthiest things to form. And you’re right. Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs, happiness makes a terrible idol.
There is a way to achieve happiness without idolizing it, and it’s actually easier than you may think.
The word “budget” sparks many different emotions.
Some people swear by their budget. Some people swear at their budget. And others swear they had a budget, though they can’t seem to remember exactly what’s in it or where it’s at.
You used to be hard-pressed to find a finance book that didn’t recommend budgeting, but things have changed.
Several finance teachers, like Ramit Sethi and David Chilton, have started to move away from the “everyone needs a budget” mindset, and for good reason. They focus more on big savings and less on fewer lattes.
Today, I’m going to show you both sides.
Here’s why I swear by my budget, and why you don’t need one to be financially successful.
This guide is for the average person who wants to start a blog and understands that, though it’s easy to start a blog, turning a blog into a money-making machine or even just a full-time income isn’t always easy, but it is doable and highly rewarding.
We’ve all been there.
A dinner party at work. A meet and greet at church. An “open house” at school.
Events that should be easy, but we end up making them awkward and uncomfortable.
The good news is that you’re not alone. We’re all awkward! Some more than others, of course.
Let me explain 6 things I’ve done to build confidence and reduce some of the awkward social stress.
Have you seen Tai Lopez in the YouTube videos?
His ad pops up on every YouTube video, or so it seems. He’s usually standing by a mansion.
His latest video starts with him saying “Hey, I’m here in my backyard. People are always asking me for a tour of my house…”
I’m sure you’ve seen it. Everyone has seen it. Unless you have ad block. So is this guy for real?
I’m going to give my take on that, show you some evidence, show you exactly what Tai does and what you’ll get when you buy his product, and how to get most of what he sells for free.
Do you have goals? Like real, written, actionable goals? Most people don’t.
But I’m sure you do. Because you want to get the most out of your life.
But what if I told you that goals aren’t as important as every self-help book says they are?
What if I told you that habits are the foundation to success?
Goals and habits actually work together, but goals are nothing without habits.
I don’t like to have a hundred different apps on my phone.
The more I have, the less benefit I get from the ones I do have.
For me, the 80/20 rule definitely applies to the apps I use on a daily basis.
I’m using [actually less than] 20% of my apps for 80% of my productivity. And here they are.
Benjamin Franklin was widely known for his practices and habits…specifically: his virtues.
He was a lifehacker before it was cool.
He believed in living a fulfilling and productive life, which is what brought him to these 13 virtues.
I’ll go over each one and show you how to apply them to your life to increase your productivity.
