I remember not hating my job (and my life), but not exactly enjoying it.
I remember reading Linchpin by Seth Godin.
I remember that morning in the gym, when I said, That’s it. I’m done. I quit.
These are my highlights (highlights, meaning I did NOT write these) from Linchpin.
This is how Seth Godin made me quit my job. Don’t read it if you don’t want to quit yours.
You've probably heard that if you want to find out what you are most insecure and ashamed of, listen to how you judge people.
If you tend to say, "His shirt looks so tight on him!!" then you're probably most insecure of your body.
Thing is, I've always considered this statement one of those...
"Hmmm makes sense but nah"
At least not for me.
A quote from The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It sums the idea nicely:
I’m sick. You probably are too. I didn’t realize it until recently. This is my sickness:

If you ask my top 3 most significant achievements, I will not hesitate to answer:
For three years in college, I cruised along 1.2-1.45. The next semester, my general weighted average fell below the required grade of 1.45.
All of grade school and high school, I've always been officially the "best in math" my batch. Then one summer, I'm thrust into a group of students where I'm the oldest. Also the only one who doesn't know Trigonometry.
I've always been thin. Until I got fat.
Re: TV and movies
Not only do they replace real sensations with artificially enhanced ones, they enhance them. And speed up the living process (working towards mastery, gaining trust, falling in love, etc.)
This makes it clear why movies and TV make me feel so bad.
I recently had the incredible pleasure of speaking with John Bardos from Jet Set Citizen for GiveGetWin
Here's a snapshot of what you'll get from this interview:
John traveled then ended up living in Japan for 13 years. He started a school business then sold everything and left. He spent the last 4 years location independent rotating Thailand, Japan, Hungary, and Europe.
Enjoy this interview. Then check out his deal, One Year to an Excellent Life, on how to transform your life and build the life you want in one year. (Hurry, cause there are only 5 spots)
And it applies to many things that will improve your life. Many people will stop you from doing them and insist you're wrong.
Just because it goes against everything they know, which is mostly just stuff from the news and things they read from "the internet."
Not 100%, but the loudest talkers are usually the most ignorant.
I've flirted with the idea... "I never knew it would be this hard. Maybe that other business is easier. I'll be more successful there."
Flirted, but never really considered.
Quote from: The Education of Millionaires: Everything You Won't Learn in College About How to Be Successful
Hate is not the opposite of love.Indifference is.
We don’t pursue a body we don’t want. We let it be.
We don’t chase a life we don’t like. We let someday walk away.
