Building the Fundamentals

Photo by DeviantArt user karwahe

There’s a part of me that wants to drop everything I’m doing on a daily basis, give it up, and do something that truly makes me happy (or that I think will make me happy). I want to forget about the past and everything that has happened and start a clean slate. As much as I want to do that today; start fresh and pretend like it’s a whole new life, I won’t. Why? Because there’s doubt running through my head. Then I start thinking about …

7 Important Questions to Ask Yourself

Image by DeviantArt user Dynnnad

“Become what you always dreamt of becoming.”

Inspired by an article featured on Dumb Little Man. Try answering these [7 questions] for yourself and be true to yourself while thinking about the questions and answering them with sincerity. It’s hard to sometimes be “real” with yourself, but honesty is the best policy. Since 2010 is coming to a close I thought that I’d do a little bit of self-reflection. Let me tell you…this year freakin’ flew by in a heartbeat.
On a scale of 1-9, how satisfied …

It’s Not About the Money

“Do what you love, love what you do,and deliver more than you promise.”-Harvey Mackay

Growing up we always hear the phrase “do what you love, love what you do,” but don’t really think of it too much. That is, until we’re older and realize that if we stray away from doing what we love to do or have fun doing…well, life just isn’t all that it’s cracked up or hyped up to be!
A lot of you probably read my post Listen to Your Heart and thought I …

“To Travel is Better Than to Arrive”

“Some famous guy once said, ‘To travel is better than to arrive‘. and I was like ‘What!?’ Well, because I used to think that there was only one path to take to where you wanna get to be in life. But if you choose that one path, that doesn’t mean you have to abandon all the others. I realized that it’s actually what happens along the way….that counts. The stumbles or the falls. The friendships. It’s the journey. Not the destination. You just gotta -I guess- trust the future will …

Listen to Your Heart

Photo by DeviantArt User ~Silvery-Lily
I wanted to write something that portrays the feelings and emotions running through my head these past few days. Upon moving down to Huntington Beach, California I was graced with an opportunity to work for a company called The Southern California Group doing outsourced marketing and sales (a fancy name for door-to-door sales). This wasn’t exactly what I had in mind for life after college, but since I wasn’t having any luck finding anything else I said what the hell and went with it. Let me …

Play Hard, Work Harder

Photo by Flickr User $ Bill

You can’t play hard unless you work. Bottom line. The purpose of this post is to hopefully pass down some knowledge I have gained through the last 4 years of my life. Mainly, my college days and through my first 10 months as a college graduate in the oh-so-dreaded “real world”. First of all, I can tell why we, as a society, refer to life after college the real world. That’s because, in fact, everything you once knew and grew accustomed to will change. Whether …

Don’t Be An Average Joe, Be A Champion!

Photo by Deviant Art User fbuk

“The vision of a champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion when no one else is looking.”

I wanted to write something that would motivate those of you who are taking the time to read this post. For many people, the paths we decide to take in life are indirectly dictated by those who surround us. Whether it’s our parents, friends, professors, and co-workers we always think about the consequences and trade-offs in whatever it is we’re trying …

Become a Quitter at Quitting

Photo by Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images | Life.com

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.”

In my last post “Put Two Feet In” I mentioned that we must be quitters at quitting. I will stand by that statement and guard it with my life.
Take a second to reflect on the past. I’ve been doing quite a bit of soul searching and self-reflection lately and realized that I have quit …

Put Two Feet In…

Photo by Flickr User klorrainegraham
I’ve officially worked my first “real” job for 4 weeks now. It hasn’t been the smoothest of rides so far (I’ll explain later). Oh yeah, and did I mention that the pay is commission only as well? The fact that it’s commission only doesn’t bother me. In fact, the job itself is challenging, fun, and discouraging all at the same time. So why the hell would I ever graduate from a respected four year university with my Bachelor’s just to begin my “real life” journey at …

You’re Not Ready to Succeed Until You Believe

Photo by Flickr User Pixelinthebox
I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.
Some of you may recognize this poem, some you may not. I came across this poem in Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, of which …
