When you post on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, etc. it could be your last ever. None of us know when our time is coming. Think about this when you post on social media.
Is what you are posting, tweeting, or sharing something that you can be proud of if it was your last? Let’s face it most people never think of this because nobody wants to think that they could be gone from this world soon. So people just post not thinking of this.
I have seen family and friends pass away over the last few years. Sometimes I learn about it on Facebook. It’s a sad thing to go on Facebook and find out someone you knew passed away. I then go on their Facebook page and read the comments and even scroll down to look at some of their last posts. I’m curious to see what they have been up to leading up to their last days.
I’m not writing this to bring you down. I’m writing this to give you some insight about posting on social media. None of know when our last day or hour will be. Think about this when posting on social media because your friends and followers will look at your last posts. Social media is like a journal of your life. Don’t leave things on there that you won’t be proud of.

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It’s something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success.
I would say that the quality of each man’s life is the full measure of that man’s commitment of excellence and victory – whether it be football, whether it be business, whether it be politics or government or what have you.
Success is like anything worthwhile. It has a price. You have to pay the price to win and you have to pay the price to get to the point where success is possible. Most important, you must pay the price to stay there.
A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive, and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.
Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.
If you’ll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.
Wow! How inspirational was Vince Lombardi! He had quotes and sayings that can be used in almost anything in life. I hope this article of Vince Lombardi quotes can get you motivated to crush your dreams!

We will examine five things that you can do today to be successful in any venture you pursue. These five keys to success have been mentioned over and over again by entrepreneurs, motivation gurus, and business titans.
They are easy to follow and can dramatically improve your results if you stick with them.
1. Stay Positive!
This is easy and hard at the same time. Negative things can happen to us daily. When things don’t go as planned it’s easy to dwell on the negative.
The trick here is to brush off the negativity! It’s fine to let negativity creep in, but don’t let it last more than a few minutes. Get back to thinking positive! Negativity can eat away at your day and even worse ruin your momentum.
Quick Story: It took me a long time to start Fun To Be Social. I didn’t make any money whatsoever for over a year. I didn’t let that get me down I just kept a positive attitude and kept moving forward. Thankfully I have a partner who stands by me and believes in me so that made things easier. My wife didn’t mind working and struggling for the short term. She understood the long term goals were way more important than short term comfort!
That brings me to this point; Don’t let short term discomfort get you down. Know your goals and keep working toward them with a positive attitude.
Some people will try to discourage you and tell you to give up and get a real job. Don’t let them get to you! The people who say things like this to you gave up on their dreams long ago. They want to give you advice when they have no idea what risk is. They have no idea what it takes because they either never did anything or they failed miserably and gave up quick. Stay positive around these people or better yet avoid them. You don’t want their average thinking rubbing off on you!
2. Gain More Momentum Everyday
I have a motto and that is EVERY LITTLE STEP COUNTS! It doesn’t matter how small the step as long as you are moving forward. Over time the little steps keep adding up. This blog post is a small step towards my goal of producing over 100 blog posts this year.
Think of it this way let’s say you have a french fry. Just one lonely french fry. It’s about a medium sized french fry. Now you add a small french fry to your plate. You have a small french fry and a medium french fry. Everyday you keep adding different sized french fries to your plate. What will that plate look like in one year? That’s right it will be a heaping plate of french fries!! That is the same as adding one step at a time to your success. Over time it will be like that heaping plate of french fries! (mmmm… french fries now I’m hungry!)
That my friends is how you must think. Keep adding a little more to your goal each day. Some days you will get more done and some days it won’t be much, but the main thing is you are still moving forward!
One thing I like to do is to get my days started fast! It helps build momentum for the day. If you start off sluggish you will likely carry that on throughout the day. Find things that get you going in the morning like music, coffee, exercise, a good breakfast, etc. and use what works to give you a boost to your day.
I like some good upbeat music and a good high protein breakfast to start my day. I then will hold off on coffee for a least the first two hours. This way I can generate energy naturally at first. This works for me you might have other things that work for you.
5. Dominate On Your Best Days
We all have really good energetic days where everything seems to be going great. You feel great and you have lots and lots of energy. Use these days to your advantage!
One way you could take advantage of these days is to make more sales calls when you are feeling energetic and positive. This will make you more immune to rejection. It will also give the people you are talking to a better perception of you because you are in such a great mood.
These days don’t come all the time, but when they do take full advantage of them! These are the days when you can add BIG steps to your little steps. If you can take advantage of these kind of days at least two days per week imagine what you can accomplish!!
If you use these 5 keys to success they will help you to accomplish more and more. Eventually the results you are seeing will give you even more motivation to keep going. Nothing can motivate you more than seeing your successes adding up!

One of the most important parts of being successful is to have a partner who believes in you and believes you can do big things. A person who will never give up on you. Having someone who will stand alongside you and support you in anyway necessary to help you both reach your goals.
Time To Talk
I never get to talk about this because I never know how or when to do it. My beautiful wife (Beth) believes in me with all her heart and soul and I couldn’t be more appreciative of this. We’ve been together over 15 years (as of writing this) and she still encourages me and tells me that I will be super successful. She has worked many, many hours to pay the bills while giving me the opportunity to create businesses and without the time she gave me I wouldn’t have accomplished much. One business worked out and many others didn’t, but I never let that stop me. All it takes is one business to take off! I think that every successful person should have a partner like I have. A person who will stand beside you no matter how hot the fire gets! This article is to thank her for all she has done and to let everyone know that nobody can do it all alone.
A Great Friend
I am the luckiest man on this earth! I found a woman who believes in me and who has always believed in me no matter what. She is my wife and my best friend! Without her I might have given up on my dreams long ago. Having someone like her has always given me a reason to keep going. She believes in me more than I believe in myself. Sometimes I wonder why does she believe in me so much? Is there something about me I don’t see? Can I really be that convincing to her that I will be a huge success? I’m still not sure, but I do know she really does believe in me big time! She is not just my wife she is my best friend!
Stay Away From The Wrong People
I always had big dreams and couldn’t stand working for someone for as long as I could remember. I can not explain it, but the thought of punching a clock made me feel sick. I have worked many places in my younger years and I never ever enjoyed any of them. Sure I got by and did my time, but could never imagine myself working at any of those places my whole life. It’s a mindset I have and I can’t change it and never would. Life is short and we are not meant to be here to be average and just get by.
People who have the “average” mindset never understood my thinking. I have heard dumb comments by people who would never take a risk and build their own company. These same people even had the nerve to give me career advice! Never take advice from someone who doesn’t think and act above average! I won’t even talk to some of these people anymore because I don’t want their average thinking rubbing off on me. Stay away from those people because after awhile no matter how you try to shake it off it will rub off on you.
I’ve had people try to discourage me long ago even when I was 18 and 19 years old when I was trying to start an events company. They would tell me that maybe I should get a “real job” and that I need to start thinking realistically. A real job!? What the hell is that anyway! Is a real job something they think as real success? The same people who gave that advice long ago didn’t get anywhere since then and some even went backwards. Wow!… I am lucky I didn’t take their amazing advice! Haters will try to bring you down to their level. It will only work if you let them get to you. Embrace your haters and let them serve as more wood for your fire.
I am stubborn and I am glad for that. By stubborn I mean I wouldn’t take bad advice and get discouraged. I didn’t care if it took me 30 years I was going to be a success! Don’t ever listen to people if you wouldn’t want their life. Take advice only from successful people that you look up to. Stay away from the miserable people who will always try to bring you down. It’s really easy, just stay busy pursuing your dreams and you won’t have time for those people. If you are are busy working on your own success you won’t even hear them when they come within shouting range because you will be too focused to really care what they are saying.
She Always Believed In Me
Having such a great wife that believes in me makes me feel successful even on tough days. I don’t need to hear anyone else’s advice or criticism all I need to hear is her sweet voice always encouraging me. Even after writing this post I can’t put it into words how lucky I am to be her husband. Some things are too hard to put into words. I could not even give a speech at our 10 year anniversary party because I could not find the right words to explain my feelings for her. I just know that what we have could never fully be put into words and that is a good thing. If it’s so good you can’t explain it, then it must be beyond this world!
If you need to go around trying to convince people how good your relationship is then it probably isn’t that good. Some people try to make their relationship look so great on social media. It looks all good, but that is only a front for some people. (not all, just some people) When it’s genuine you will know and won’t have to explain it or put on a show for others. That is what my wife and I have and it’s amazing!
Beth always, always, always believed in me and I am so grateful for that. She never doubted me and always knew that I would do more than just work a basic job. She was willing to suffer financially during some tough times (years) even when the future wasn’t looking so good. Nobody wants to suffer financially because it sucks and it sucks bad! I’ve been there too many times to count and will never go back! My wife never gave up on me in those tough times and because of that I was able to keep moving forward. Even when I didn’t have enough money to even buy business cards!
When things were bad financially she wouldn’t even let me get a job because she knew it could take my focus away from our big goals. She was willing to struggle and deal with some temporary discomfort for the big picture. Some people give up because the temporary discomfort is too much to handle. Not us!
You just keep moving forward even if it’s one small step at a time! Every single little step will help lead you to your bigger goals. The main thing is to keep going! Don’t take the easy way out and quit. Adjust your plans if needed, but don’t quit. Having a great wife has helped me to realize some of my goals and to know that I must keep working on them.
Stand Side By Side
My wife and I are always side by side as a team. I would never say I have a strong wife behind me. No, she is right beside me ready to take on anything and anyone! A super strong woman who made me super strong! When we are standing side by side nothing can stop us. Nobody can discourage us and no person or situation can ever defeat us. We are a great team and if you can find a partner like that it will go a long way in your future success! Thank you Beth for everything and for never giving up on me and always standing by my side.
Still More To Do
I still have lots more to do in the business world and as long as I have my wife by my side I know I will conquer even more goals. I am now just getting the boulder rolling after years of pushing it uphill. The trick is to keep the momentum going! Success is a tricky thing because if you let up it could stop completely. Keep it going and don’t rest when things start to go your way. As a matter of fact when things start going your way hit it even harder because with all that momentum you will be able to achieve even greater success at an even faster rate.
It’s funny how nothing happens for a long a long time and after lots of work things start to get rolling more and more. If I wouldn’t have changed courses in business so many times in the past I could be a lot further with my goals, but I learned from the past and gained so many more skills to make my current business “Fun To Be Social” a success. If there’s anything I learned that is of the most value is to never ever, ever, ever, ever give up! If things aren’t going in the right direction just change your approach, but don’t give up.
Having a great partner in life will be a big key to success. If you are lucky enough to have that don’t ever let them down if they believe in you! Just think about that every time you want to quit. Think about how you don’t want to let your partner down because anyone who believes in you and encourages you should never be let down. They should be able to see you succeed so that they knew they weren’t wrong for trusting in you. They should be able to celebrate with you in your success.
I don’t think I could be a success if I had a wife who thought average and expected me to think the same. My wife never really thought big before meeting me, but since being together she realized that going by the “status quo” was not the way life was supposed to be lived. Anybody can live an average life. That’s why the middle class is the biggest class in our society. Schools taught us that is where we should live. People are conditioned at a young age to get a job, save money, and have a family. It’s a trap that most fall into. Whether you agree with me or not it’s the cold hard facts. Being average and shooting for mediocre goals is a crappy way to live a life!
If being average was so great they would start writing books on how to be average. Very few people would read a book about being average. That’s why there are so many books about success and that’s why some people have made lots and lots of money talking and writing about success. People like Tony Robbins, Grant Cardone, Napoleon Hill and many more have made careers about thinking above average.
Strive For More!
After years of being together our goals have gotten bigger and we talk a lot about our future all the time. We always set new goals to strive for and that keeps our relationship fresh. Couples always need something to look forward to. Beth and I will always have something new to look forward to and new goals to strive for. It’s what makes life exciting and it’s what makes our relationship great.
Quick Story: Just two years ago we decided to leave the cold Wisconsin winters and moved across the country to Nevada. We wanted to enjoy the warm beautiful, sunny winters. It was a big move and there was a lot of uncertainty, but we had faith our plans would work out and that I could continue my business out in Nevada. My wife left a job she loved and took the risk by moving not knowing if she would find something she liked as much. I’m proud to say it worked out great and I’m glad we took that risk. We are doing better now than we ever have. Business is going great and my wife found a job she loves! We even get to go back to Wisconsin to visit family and friends in the summer. The risk and uncertainty of the move might have scared a lot of couples from ever doing it, but we embraced the challenge together.
Don’t be afraid of change and risk. Living in the safe zone is not a way to live, put yourself out there and take on challenges together and if your relationship is strong it will make it stronger and better.
I will never let my wife down because she has never let me down! Always remember that having a partner who believes in you is a gift! Work together and set BIG goals together and success will be so much sweeter!

Motion Creates Emotion!! Hit the ground running don’t walk around all groggy in the morning it will only make you feel even more tired! Start the day fast to gain some great momentum for the rest of the day! Below are 7 tips to get the day started fast.
Use The Morning To Your Advantage!
The morning is what sets the tone for your day. If you start off crabby or irritated it’s a good indication of how your day is going to go.
Get Up and Get Motivated!
One thing that works for me is I don’t use an alarm! I don’t need to my body knows when to wake up. With an alarm going off and telling you when to get up it can actually ruin your morning. I like to get up when my body says it’s time not when an alarm clock tells me! I do have the luxury of being my own boss so I have nobody to answer to if I’m late.
My advice for a good start in the morning is to try waking up with no alarm clock. Set it just so you won’t be late for work, but make it a habit to get up 10 minutes before it goes off. You will notice the difference!
One thing that I’ve noticed is that if I wait about 2 hours to have any coffee in the morning it will be more effective. You need to give your body time to wake up and start running right before ingesting caffeine.
Drink some water to start your day and wait until you actually are awake and working before drinking coffee. I know what you’re thinking “I need my coffee right away!” Here’s my answer NO YOU DON’T!! It’s just in your head! It might be tough to do at first, but it will be worth it once you get past the first three days. Don’t start your day immediately with caffeine that’s not what it’s really meant for. It’s meant to give you some energy when you get a little tired. It’s not meant to be fuel to start your day!
Don’t get me wrong I love coffee (in moderation), but what I learned is if you skip it for the first couple hours of your day you will notice it works much better with giving you energy later in the morning.
Put On Some Music
A good way to start the day is to listen to some of your favorite music. Who doesn’t love hearing the songs that get them singing and dancing?? Getting that feel good energy right away in the morning is good for the soul. Just make sure not to be blasting music if others are sleeping yet! Put in some earbuds you maniac!
Take A Moment To Visualize Your Day
Take just 3-5 minutes with your eyes closed and visualize your day and what you hope to accomplish. While you do this also visualize your day going great with no negativity. This is important to getting you day off to a great start.
Visualize how your first few hours will be, then how your mid day will go, and how you will finish the day strong. Really put it into perspective.
I don’t really meditate or anything, but find this does help me get the day going in the right direction.
Visualize Your Long Term Goals
After visualizing how your day is going to go focus on your long term goals and what they will look like 5, 10, 20 years down the road. This will help give you the reason why you are working today or why you are building your business. Picture how it will look and how it will feel when you reach your goals. This doesn’t have to take long three minutes should be enough time to really visualize your long term goals. If you do this everyday you will not lose focus on your goals!
Visualizing your long term term goals frequently will also put them into your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is what the brain thinks about even when you are not. After burning your goals into your subconscious mind it will give you more plans and strategies to reach those goals when you are not even thinking of them. Napoleon Hill talks about this more in depth in “Think and Grow Rich” if you haven’t read it yet you should!
Even if it is something small like buying them a donut, telling an employee they are doing great, or complimenting someone. Do something nice for someone in the morning and it will keep the positive energy going!
Avoid Time Sucking Useless Activities
Don’t start doing something that will not get you closer to your goals right away in the morning. You want to start your day off right and doing useless stuff will suck your time and energy right away. You want to start the day off running at full speed so don’t get sidetracked by stuff that doesn’t matter.
Give some of these tips a try and find which ones work for you. There is no need to do all of them, but at least a couple of the tips above will help you to get started fast in the morning and on the right track.
The morning time really does set up the rest of your day don’t waste it. Use the morning time to get a jump start on your day! The early bird does not get the worm if he doesn’t do anything!

It’s true Michael Jordan didn’t win all his games, not even close! Brett Favre lost many many games, but he is known for never giving up! They are both known as winners not because they always won, but because they won a lot because they never gave up and didn’t let losses get to them for very long. They were focused on one thing and that was winning!
Don’t Let Little Things Get You Down
Sometimes it may feel like you will never get out of a bad situation. The feeling of hopelessness can linger. Don’t let it keep you down! Bad situations never last forever. You could be closer to success than you think! Click here for some Awesome Motivational Quotes.
“I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” -Michael Jordan
Winners win because they never give up! If you think of some of the most successful people ever you will notice one thing. That thing is most of them struggled and went through many tough times before success. There are lots of movies out there about successful people who had to overcome many obstacles before success.
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” – Vince Lombardi
Your Losses Make You Better
When you are struggling it’s not all bad news. If anything you are becoming smarter, stronger, and better! The struggles will make you so much better if you do one thing DON’T GIVE UP!!!! Successful people have one thing in common and that is they refuse to give up. If you can find one trait all successful people have that would be the number one trait.
Every Little Step Counts
It may seem like you are not making much progress, but every little step adds up to big things. No matter how slow the you are moving just keep moving forward. In three or five years the little steps will be the reason you succeeded! If I’m having a bad day or week I just keep going because I always think to myself that even if it doesn’t seem like I am accomplishing much I know that every single little step counts!
Winners Will Always Find A Way
Think of what you are doing as a game. Find ways to win the game! Make it a competition with yourself. Use your competitors to motivate you to be better. Whatever you do find a way to win. I am a competitive person and I find that if I make things into a competition I will work harder to win or be better. I do this all the time in business, life, fitness, etc. Look for ways to make it fun and competitive. Find the drive to win no matter what!
You are a winner! Everybody has it in them to accomplish big things. It’s up to you if you will. Always remember that you don’t have to win all the time. All it takes is one thing, one step, one decision. Are you willing to put in the work to win? Will you find a way to win? Make the decision today that winning is all that matters no matter how many setbacks you may experience!
I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it. I think your mind really controls everything. -Michael Phelps

Eliminate your fears to conquer your goals and you WILL become Limitless!
Fear Is Just A State Of Mind
If you realize that most of your fears and worries are just a state of mind it will be easier to overcome them. Most of what we fear or worry about almost never happens. Fear can creep into the mind at anytime for any reason. It’s up to you if you let it stay there.
“We have nothing to fear, but fear itself! -Franklin D Roosevelt
Fear Can Lead To Good Things
For example I hate and fear making cold calls! I mean it sucks and there is really nothing fun about it to me. I like to talk to people, but when I cold call it feels like I am bothering them. So I rarely make cold calls I’d rather do some marketing to get some good warm leads. Just the thought of making cold calls is not fun! Some people like to do that and they are good at it, but I’m not. I can admit when I’m not good at something. I know it’s a state of mind and if I did it more it would become easier but I don’t care I’d rather do something that is a strength of mine and that is social media marketing! That helps me to generate leads and build relationships. It becomes easier to generate new business for me this way. So I took that fear of cold calling and became stronger at social media marketing!
You Either Embrace Fear Or Eliminate Fear
You can take your fear and let it make you stronger or you can eliminate it all together. You always get to choose it’s up to you to face your fears and use them to become limitless! Do what you can to become fearless don’t let the fear of something hold you back from your goals and dreams. Either you can use fear to your advantage and become stronger in another area like I did or eliminate it by facing it head on.
Once you eliminate your fears you will become limitless! Be a lion, a shark, a tiger, a wolf!! Would you rather be fearful and never try something and die anyway or at least face your fears and say “I did it!!”
Be a beast and dominate those fears before they dominate you!
A great way to overcome fear is to take action now! This way you won’t sit around thinking about the fear and letting it grow. If you take immediate action you will overcome a fear faster because you won’t have time to think about it. Become fearless and you will become limitless!
I took a fear and became stronger in another area. What are you going to do with your fear?

Stop wishing for things and put together a plan to attain them! Wishing is for losers who want stuff, but aren’t willing to put in the work. Be a winner and stop wishing and start doing!
I always laugh to myself when I hear someone say “Man, I wish I had that car!” or “I wish I could afford a house like that!” It’s not that they want to have that item, it’s that they wish they could have it. I have news for you it’s possible to have things you really want. So stop with the wishing, there is no magic genie that is going to come out and grant you that wish! The people who own those things didn’t wish for them they most likely went out and worked hard to get them!
Set goals and plans on how you plan on hitting those goals. Once you have your goals and plans set now comes the hard part ACTION! One must take action to make their goals and plans a reality.
The path to success is to take massive, determined action. -Tony Robbins
It won’t be easy, (at least I’ve never seen it come easy) but it will be worth it in the end. When people see someone sells their app to Facebook for 1 billion dollars they think “Wow must be nice!” The truth is that person could have put in 10 years of hard work, skipping parties, working many weekends, working 80 hour weeks, risking their own money, etc. A lot of things that people don’t see, they only see 1 billion dollars and think that person was lucky. Then those people say “I wish I had 1 billion dollars!” See how dumb that can sound? That same person probably goes out a lot of weekends and only works 40 hours per week and is afraid of risk!
If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time. -Zig Ziglar
I’ve learned that every little step will help you get to the big overall goal! Start now, start today even if it’s something small that small step will get you on your way. Whether it’s a business goal, a personal goal, a fitness goal, or something else just get started today!
One quick example: I seen this guy on T.V. who weighed over 700 lbs he couldn’t do much physically, not even walk around his house! He decided he wanted to lose the weight so he started with small steps. Instead of going to a gym or doing some exercises he knew he couldn’t do yet he would just do some movements on the couch. Maybe put on some music and move to the music on the couch or just move back and forth on the couch to engage his muscles. Eventually he was able to do some walking around the house then some walking outside. He eventually lost over 400 lbs!
So what is the point of that story? The point is he took small steps to get to his overall goal. Those small steps lead to him losing over 400 lbs! You can do it too! Maybe you don’t need to lose 400 lbs, but whatever your goal is you can reach it! Stop wishing and start doing! You will accomplish your dreams with Goals, Plans, and Action! Just remember it will take some work. Stay motivated and keep at it even with little steps everyday!
“A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.” –Vince Lombardi
Have anything to add? Let us know in the comments below. Even better if you have some cool motivational quotes put them in the comments!
Overthinking can really kill a lot of things. It can kill your happiness, motivation, your progress, and your confidence to name a few. Don’t let overthinking kill your happiness!
Overthinking Creates Doubt
I know this for sure! I was a chronic over thinker. (probably still am a little) I realized that after 20 years of overthinking. It took 20 years to really notice how bad it was effecting me when doing business.
It created doubt in everything I did with business. I would get really motivated and get a lot done and make some great progress with a new business and then came the overthinking. It made me wonder if I chose the right business to spend my time with. It had me thinking that maybe I don’t know enough to make this business a success. Any business I started or really got going on doubt and overthinking crept in.
Don’t Let Doubt and Over Thinking Ruin Your Motivation
When you get motivated and ready to rule the business world just go with it! Don’t let crap like overthinking ruin it for you. Get going with whatever you choose to do and don’t look back! You chose whatever business you are in for a reason don’t overthink it. Stay motivated on the reasons why you started.
“We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.”
― Anthony Hopkins
Doubt and Overthinking is Like A Poison
Honestly I think I let a lot of good opportunities slip away because of overthinking things. I’ve started business that today would be doing great, but for some reason I gave up and let the doubt and overthinking creep in. It was like a poison that killed my motivation in the past.
You notice that I say in the past. I learned from it and now when I am building my business I am going full speed ahead! Doubt and overthinking things doesn’t happen anymore because I am too busy to let it happen. I am too busy building my empire. I won’t let it happen anymore. If I have any doubts I just keep learning my craft (social media marketing) and then I know that it is only a temporary case of overthinking because I know what I am doing and there is no reason to let it stop me.
I am He-Man and overthinking is like Skeletor. I will never let Skeletor win! I have the power!!
Just Be Awesome!
You know more than you think you do. Never doubt yourself so much that it ruins your progress. Just be awesome and never apologize! I learned the hard way and lost some time because of it, but the main thing is I LEARNED FROM IT!
Adjust When Needed
Go out and crush it today! If things aren’t going as planned adjust the plans just enough to keep you going in the right direction. Don’t let doubt and overthinking stop you dead in your tracks. Believe in the reasons why you started and let that doubt slide right off your shoulders.

Really it’s true! The more I learn the more skilled I get at things. I wish I loved learning 20+ years ago like I do now. I would have been an awesome student in high school. That wasn’t the case back then. I loved to goof off and be the class clown. I’ll admit most of it was fun! Not getting my homework done was kind of a drag though. I would feel like an idiot for not turning in my homework and then came the tests that I never studied for. Good Times! (not really) It’s weird how we change over time. I now love to learn! I won’t read anything unless it’s for self improvement. To me fiction books seem like a waste of time. If I’m going to read I want to learn something valuable! If you like fiction that is good too, at least you are ahead of the people who don’t read at all.
So You Are Busy
Are you a busy person? Chances are you are and you are not alone. Most people are very busy. That is still no excuse to stop improving yourself. Use spare time to learn more. Even if you take 5 minutes here and there to read an interesting article that you can learn from that is better than nothing. Fill your brain with data! Everybody has to go to the bathroom and if you are doing your ” bathroom business” that is a good time to do a quick read. Don’t just go on social media and play around, find something that you can learn from. Maybe just a quick article. Then get back to pooping and playing on Facebook! The whole point is there are ways to find time. Find ways where you can fit learning and reading into your schedule.
Keep Ahead Of Your Competition
Read and learn as much as you can whenever you can to stay ahead of your competition! I usually take a little time in the morning to read on stuff in my niche (social media marketing). I try to keep up on it, because it seems like daily there are new changes going on. Social media marketing is a super fast moving industry and if I don’t keep up with the changes and ways to get better at it my competition will.
Whatever industry or niche you are in stay ahead of your competition by learning as much as you can. Never get too busy to improve yourself.
Never Stop Learning
Stay at it, every little bit counts. Never let your mind go without proper exercise. The mind needs exercise just like the body. Keep it active and your brain will stay healthier longer. Just like working out set up a routine. Maybe 10 quick minutes in the morning, or at night before bed. Find time to improve yourself mentally no matter what industry you are in. Always remember that Learners Are Earners!
“I don’t think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.” ~Abraham Lincoln
You must love to learn, because if you made it this far in the article learning and reading is important to you. Look at you go! Keep it up Readers are Leaders and Leaders are Readers!
Do you have anything valuable to add? Let us know in the comments. Thanks for reading! Later Gator!
Never feel like you need to apologize for being awesome. Be great at whatever you do and let the haters hate!
Excel At What You Do!
Strive no matter what you do. Be the best at your job. Even if you don’t like what you do for a living. Think about it, you are at work already why not do it with enthusiasm and be great at it. That could lead into doing a job you will love! Getting a promotion that you received because you were the best at what you did. Some people just go through the motions at work and don’t put much effort into their job. Don’t be that person! Just think walking around trying to look busy is BORING! If you are going to do that just put some effort into it and it could really pay off in the end.
You Are Better Than You Think You Are
Most people doubt themselves (me included), but you know more than you think you do. Doubt can creep into the mind and hold people back don’t let it happen to you. I don’t know everything, but I know a little about a lot. I guarantee you know specialized knowledge about something of value. Figure out what that is and find a way to get paid for it.
