Sorry not sorry

One of the great wonders of the world... why is it that insecurity remains the ultimate human fault. It’s been so for thousands of years and is one of the contributing factors to almost all negativity in the world today. Push back and be strong in who you are ✊but always remain positive 💯#goodvibesonly 🤙

However, a central aspect of these ancient philosophical teachings that cut across various topics was the concept of logos.
This word, which roughly translates to “reason,” was applied by such famous philosophers as Heraclitus and Aristotle, and was also of central importance to the author, Marcus Aurelius.
His view was that logos can be seen everywhere; it makes up the earth, trees and even us as humans. However, logos does not just give everything form; it also gives it order.
For humans, this means that logos determines who is placed where in society, and how that person should be respected. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #meditations #marcusaurelius #philosophy #meditation #philosopher #wisdom #knowledge #book #read #meaningoflife #entrepreneur #mindset #reason #fulfillment #courage #stoic #stoicism #plato #socrates #tonyrobbins #garyvee #timferriss #ryanholiday #enlightenment

Damn I missed World Book Day. I still use my finger to guide me when I read. So I get a pass. This only the first quarter...progress.

When dreams and reality collide...

Several years ago I reached out to one of my favorite writers/speakers/mentors.I was just beginning to get my footing on creating a new life for myself.

I bravely PM’d this gentleman, and even more bravely told him I wanted to write a new take on Napoleon Hill’s classic personal development book “Think And Grow Rich”.

We’ll just call that naive optimism...and a bit of what Napoleon would call a “burning desire.” ;)

This gentleman I’d PM’d was none other than bestselling author Bob Burg. (You gotta give me credit for boldness. ;) Bob, had written one of my favorite books “The Go-Giver”. It was a business and life-based parable. And it informed many of the concepts I built my businesses and life around.

Well, Bob, being the amazing guy he is, encouraged me to write the book, and said he’d do his best to read it when it was done.

What I didn’t know was that it would take me many years to actually be ready to write the book I wanted to create. Like, 6 1/2 years. (I still have the PM!)

Well, I finally finished my book, Closing The Gap, and nervously asked Bob if I could send him a copy. He said sure, but that he couldn’t guarantee he’d have time to read it. (He was wrapping up his latest book.) But read it he did, and he was incredibly complimentary. (Yay!) He then asked me if I’d be a guest on The Go-Giver podcast.

Let’s just say I was thrilled...and terrified. What an honor, and what an amazing full circle.

Thank you Bob for being the real deal. Kind, generous, and wise. And thank you for taking the time to encourage me...and for helping me to believe in me. Appreciate you my friend. ❤️

Making a beloved classic that lasts for a hundred years may seem like a tall order. Fine, put that aside. What if we just start by trying to make something that lasts longer than average? - INTRODUCTION.

If you are trying to make something great, you must do the making: That work cannot be outsourced to someone else. You can’t hire your friends to do it for you. There is no firm that can produce a timeless work of art on your behalf for a flat fee. - IDEAS ARE NOT ENOUGH.

If making money is all you care about, and making it sooner is preferable to later, then a perennial seller is not the path for you. Whether a really good book is finished a year earlier or a year later makes no difference. #Art can’t be hurried. It must be allowed to take its course. It must be given its space-and can’t be checked off a to-do list on the way to something else. - GREAT THINGS ARE TIMELESS AND TAKE TIME.

What the poet John Keats called “negative capability”-the holding of multiple contradictory #ideas in your head at the same time-is an essential phase of #creativity the part where your mind is a whirl of ideas. You have to be able to tolerate this and then refine your idea like mad until it gets better. - CREATIVITY IS NOT A DEVINE ACT. IT IS NOT A LIGHTENING STRIKE.

In the way that a good wine must be aged, or that we let meat marinate for hours in spices and sauce, an idea must be given space to develop. Rushing into things eliminates that space. A #book takes months or years of #writing Scientific discoveries might take decades to properly articulate. This is not a #process we ought to plunge into unknowingly. - THE DRAWDOWN PERIOD.

Don’t spend months building a website - start with a landing page, or rely on free social media platforms. You don’t have to be a genius to make genius-you just have to have small moments of brilliance and edit out the boring stuff. - TEST EARLY, TEST OFTEN.

As one agent I work with put it to me, “Spend three times longer revising your manuscript than you think you need.” He’s right. It will be the best time you spend almost anywhere in the #project - IS IT THE BEST YOU CAN DO? - The #CreativeProcess

There is no one to perform for. There is just work to be done and lessons to be learned, in all that’s around us.

Some of my favorite authors. 📚 ⠀

“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” I include the authors of the books that I read into this category because I am constantly taking in their words, wisdom, advice, and even personal characteristics, and trying to apply them directly into my life. This is why I read the books that I read. To improve my own personal characteristics, mindset, work ethic, and moral values. ⠀

The authors of these books are great examples of just that: ⠀

1. No Hero - Mark Owen
2. Ego Is The Enemy - Ryan Holiday
3. American Sniper - Chris Kyle
4. Shoe Dog - Phil Knight
5. Fearless - Eric Blehm
6. The Obstacle is The Way - Ryan Holiday
7. The Daily Stoic - Ryan Holiday ⠀

@RyanHoliday appears on this list a few times because of how powerful his impact has been on my ability to control my perception. (Perception of myself, others, and situations around me.) ⠀

The other books are Navy Seal stories that truly capture what hard work, determination, will power, proper planning, and discipline, can truly accomplish. These books remind me that all of my tasks, problems, or obstacles, are small. Not to say that they don’t matter, but to say that they have very real, attainable solutions. You just have to put the proper effort into them. 💪 ⠀

And Phil Knight, well, he’s just awesome. 👟The founder of Nike went through tremendous amounts of struggle and failure, only to endure and push his company to be one of the most influential companies in modern American culture. It’s the American Dream. 🇺🇸 ⠀

Find authors that make you a better person. Surround yourself with the right people. 😊 Who are your favorite authors? ⠀
