[Ep 6] Doubt Walks Besides Me Constantly, But I Don’t Falter

  • Reading time:2 mins read

Doubt Is My Friend Now

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about the concept of doubt and how it will stay with you forever and ever.

It isn’t something that only occupies the unsuccessful; it is something that pervades every soul on this planet, no matter how successful they are.

Even the most influential people! People might be at the pinnacle of success, but they are still going to wonder, ‘Am I an imposter? Do I even know what I’m talking about? How did I get here? They are going to find out I’m a fraud and kick me out.’

5 Money Blocks That Everyone Needs To Be Aware Of

Money Blocks

When I first started my business, I realized one major thing that I believe is the reason for my success. It had something to do with money blocks. And a realization.

I realized that my worst enemy is myself.

Self-sabotage is one of the major items keeping anyone from success.

We don’t need to worry about others killing our success, when we ourselves do such an amazing job at it.

In my case, I sabotage myself with negative thoughts, procrastination, self-doubt, and improper energy management. These are my arch-nemesis.

One of my main negative thoughts is about money. I call them my ‘Money Blocks’. I have been using this term with a lot of my clients and they are always intrigued by it.

The thing about money blocks is that they are a subconscious killer… a silent killer, so to speak.

All of us have some sort of money blocks transmitted to us by our ancestors, our parents, our society, our friends, our governments, the media, and whatsoever other influence you might have.

Money blocks are pervasive in society now as people denounce rich people (calling them evil or similar terms), and label poor people as spiritually minded and ‘good’.

Life Purpose Is Necessary for the Good Life [EP5]

  • Reading time:3 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be chatting about why you need to find your life purpose.

You see until I found my life purpose, life was a little off-color just like a movie played in black and white. It felt like everything was a bit bland. Before my life purpose:

  • I felt restless and moved around from country to country, feeling meh.
  • Moved from job to job, feeling bored, and useless.
  • I jumped around from relationship to relationship, feeling unstimulated, and unexcited.

Are You Being Held Back From Living a Fulfilling Life?

Live a Fulfilling Life

Live a Fulfilling Life – What Causes Success

Do you know fear – it’s our archenemy? Live a fulfilling life now without fear holding you back.

When I was younger, I used to wonder why some people had a lot of success in their life – people look up to them, people admire them, people want to be them…

Whereas, there were other people who lived lives of quiet desperation – no one even cared if these people lived or died (harsh, I know).

I read hundreds of books on self-help, personal growth, and development, in order to solve this mystery.

Over time, I realized that fear was the one thing that held people back from being an astounding success (and consistency, but we have spoken about that previously).

Successful people are full of fear, doubt, anxiety, frustration, anger, jealousy.. just like the unsuccessful people.

We are all the same on the inside.

Work Horror Stories? Life Isn’t Supposed To Be Like This.

Work Horror Stories

Ever since I quit my job and shared my story with the people in my life, I have had several people come up to me (virtually and in real life) and tell me their work horror stories.

  • Working long hours without pay,
  • Letting people go and their workload lumped in with yours,
  • Not letting you go on vacation because there isn’t any backup available, etc.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you these stories – you are probably living them in your own life.

But the thing that saddened me the most was how often people would tell me that they came home from their jobs and spent a few minutes or hours every day crying in their kitchen or on their couches.

Instead of taking the time away from their jobs to relax, they were spending it in misery, and sadness.

That really irked the hell out of me.

I wanted to shout from the rooftops – This isn’t how it’s supposed to be. Life is supposed to be easy. Humans aren’t supposed to work so damn hard.

5 Major Blocks That Keep Us From Quitting Corporate

  • Reading time:13 mins read

Quitting Corporate Is Scary

I have been through it all.

The despair, the heartache, the fear, the doubt, the anxiety, the joy, the ups and the downs, the plunge and the high… Every entrepreneur who decides to take the plunge goes through this drama in their heads.

The problem is we let the stories we are tell ourselves about ourselves and about the process control our decisions.

I wanted to become an entrepreneur a long time ago. When I was 22, which was ten years ago, I realized I didn’t want to do the 9-5 thing forever. I wanted to build something of my own.

But it took me ten years to get to the point where I decided to finally take the plunge. I had all the excuses you could think of! (more…)

Stop Comparing Yourself With the People Further Ahead Than You [EP4]

  • Reading time:3 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be talking about one of the easiest ways to feel bad about ourselves as new entrepreneurs. It’s called Comparison syndrome, that is, comparing your stuff to the experts who have been in the field years longer than you. Stop comparing yourself to others!

These gurus have been slogging it out in the field for decades longer than us, but for some reason, we have this incessant desire to compare ourselves to them, and then make ourselves feel terrible about the comparison.

It’s the worst feeling on the planet, but for some reason, we love to torture ourselves with these comparison thoughts.

I’m sure you know what I’m talking about here. We see our website and then we see theirs, and theirs is much better. A lot better.

stop comparing yourself with others

Then, we see our e-Book and we see theirs, and theirs looks nicer, prettier, more professional, and the colors all match up perfectly. Even if nobody’s perfect you start thinking that they have to be the exception.

10 Tasks That Show Consistency Is Boring (That’s Why Most People Don’t Stick With It)

  • Reading time:6 mins read

How did I move from being an utter and complete failure, to the success I am right now? One simple technique. Consistency. 

I know, I know! It isn’t as exciting as winning money in a lottery or hitting a really great penny stock.

But it is the only thing I know of that has been the secret to success for hundreds of thousands of people. Those people who are quietly and boringly making a tiny little bit of progress every single day in their chosen fields are the ones who end up being ‘Overnight successes’ ten or fifteen years later.

That’s the thing about success – it’s all about little gains over a long period of time, leading to the compounding effect (something Darren Hardy speaks about in his book ‘The Compound Effect’).

In fact, success is BORING.

I think of this story whenever I think of boring consistency. There is a track and field centre near my parent’s house. When I would be going to an early hot Yoga class on the weekends, I would drive past it around 7am (my class was at 8am, but I like to get there early to seep in the warmth). I always noticed this young man (late teens) running on the track every morning, by himself. He had a hoodie on (it was winters in Toronto), and he would be going around the track over and over again. (more…)

It’s Okay To Quit Your Job – Don’t Be Afraid [EP3]

  • Reading time:3 mins read

In this episode, I’ll be talking about my own journey (a somewhat “rocky” journey) of quitting the 9-5 and starting my own online business based on my passions—meditation, spirituality, and digital nomading. Quit your job? What?

We all want to quit the cubicle, travel the world, and work on a business that is based on our true passions (at least I think so based on the people I meet). We know we need to get out of that shit, but most of us don’t do it.

Why?

Quit your job

The answer is easy: we are afraid.

But there are reasons – really great reasons in our heads that say we cannot quit our 9-5 to pursue our passions.

I had a long list of my own reasons – fear of failure, of the unknown, of disappointing my parents, of succeeding, of taking on too much too fast, of poverty, of bankruptcy, of being on my own, of jumping into the abyss, and much more.

I still quit my job. And you can quit your job, too!

You know why?

Because the reasons didn’t matter anymore. I had to get out and do my own thing. It was time.

I knew if I delayed any further I would be delaying forever! I didn’t want regret to take over my psyche.
