4 Powerful Tools to Motivate You!

Nobody in the world is the same. One might be good at one thing and bad at the other while the other person might be the exact opposite. Similarly, when at times, you lack the most essential thing in life that keeps you going; the other person might be full of it. I am talking about Motivation. In this crazy busy world, we do get frustrated and lose all hopes every now and then. We feel like we have nothing left to work for. When everything seems to go to the left, and all the doors to the right get shut; that’s when you need the help of people like motivational bloggers, podcasts, and books. Yes, the ones who are full of what you lack will definitely give you the will to continue moving. They will help you get up and open all the doors to the right. All you need is to realize that all that you have to do is NOW, cause sometimes NOW becomes NEVER and that’s when you regret. No!! You can’t afford to regret at any time in your life. Never!

“If you can’t fly, then run,
If you can’t run, then walk,
If you can’t walk, then crawl,
But whatever you do,
You have to keep moving forward.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

Motivational Books

  1. You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero

This refreshing must-read inspirational book provides the reader with a guide to creating a life that you love. Jen Sincero offers the reader 27 short chapters packed with captivating stories, humor, sound advice, and simple exercises to help people find and get rid of their self-sabotaging thoughts and habits that prohibit people from achieving the success that they want. After reading this book, you will have a better understanding of why you act the way you do and how to accept the things that you cannot change.

  1. Choose Yourself by James Altucher

Choose Yourself remains my favorite, and I think is one of the single best motivational books around. Because that is the entire point of the book. When it comes to “what” you should invest in to achieve success, his point is to “choose yourself”.

Showcasing real-life interviews and case studies, James shows us how the current world market is ripe for entrepreneurial self-starters to succeed if they invest their energy in themselves.

3.  Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Written in 1937, this book has become a classic. The text and formatting of the original book are as close as possible to the original release. This book was originally published during the Great Depression and it is about the art of convincing yourself to become wealthy. It addresses the important steps to take and the equally important steps to avoid in this process.

Are you a Podcast Person? The Who, What, When, Why and How on Podcasts

You Too Can Be Podcast Person!

The Who, The Why and The When

If you have a smartphone or a computer then it’s very easy to join the podcast world. Podcasts appeal to me because I can tailor them to my interests with minimal effort and cost. With commuting between offices, 2 days a week I’m in the care for at least 90 minutes each day. As much as I enjoy music I decided to use that time more wisely. So I make phone calls, listen to audio books and lately I’ve really gotten into all different podcasts. On the days with the shorter commute, I’m listening to my music.

I don’t think I even knew what a podcast was in 2016.  I subscribe to many and really enjoy the wide variety of topics to pick from. I also listen to a podcast as I’m falling asleep 90% of the time I fall asleep within 15 minutes. Before I started my mind would go all over the place and take me longer. I listen to a podcast that I know is going to make me happy and something that I know will set my dreams in motion. Last night, I listened to Feherty and he was interviewing Justin Thomas. Which put my golfing dreams in motion, I got my first hole in one. I set the sleep timer to 30 minutes which means I usually need to go back and listen to what I missed the next night. The podcasts that I know I’m going to need to pay close attention or that I know will keep me awake I listen to in the car. Here’s how I got started, someone told me about a podcast called Road Trippin “, It’s a couple of players that started it from the Cleveland Cavs, I learned so much more about the team and all the players and they are very funny and always kept me laughing. After that, I was hooked and started to do some research. Here are my top podcasts that I enjoy.

The What

Good Life Project

 In his weekly podcast, author and entrepreneur Jonathan Fields picks big topics like meaning, happiness, purpose, creativity, confidence, and success. Fields’ curiosity means he gives his guests (who range from Brené Brown and Seth Godin to everyday people) space and time to dive deep.

The Slow Home Podcast

 So many of us are too busy, too stressed and too tired. Brooke McAlary’s podcast is the perfect antidote. She explores what can help us live a slower and simpler life, such as developing rituals for gratitude and single-tasking, meditation, screen-free bedrooms and frugal hedonism (yes, it’s a thing).

Straight and Curly

 It might sound a bit Oprah-esque, but if you’re looking to improve yourself and live your best life, then Carly Jacobs and Kelly Exeter’s podcast is for you. Jacobs and Exeter are self-improvement junkies who discuss the side effects of living a hectic life and offer tips, advice, and strategies to get your calm on. They present a personable, funny podcast with heaps of life hacks – a fresh one each week – from learning to say no to being more decisive.

Optimal Living Daily

While it has a plain title, Justin Malik’s daily podcast is anything but ordinary. A digest of what he calls the internet’s best content, Malik narrates blog posts (with permission from their authors) which mainly look at personal development, minimalism, and productivity. It could be a recipe for dullness, but Malik has skills.  He curates compelling and challenging episodes. With each coming in at around 10 minutes, OLD is a bite-sized summary of what’s now great on the web.

Crime waves: six gripping stories By Tim Walker

The true crime story it tells is both more concise and more conclusive than its podcast predecessor.

The Daily

Twenty minutes a day, Monday to Friday of every week, dropping shortly before 6 a.m., The New York Times‘s Michael Barbaro covers the essentials of “what you need to know today”. It’s a reassuringly consistent way to feel like you’re at least keeping moderately on top of things, and the show offers an inside track on scoops like Emily Steele’s Bill O’Reilly exposé, or Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush’s consistently revelatory White House reporting.

The How

  • Ask your friends what they’re listening to.
  • Search by topic to find the podcast that suits your interests.
  • You can subscribe to podcasts via platforms such as iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and PodBean.

Not sure how to listen to a podcast? Ask a “techy” family member or friend to help.  It’s easy!
