Everything we’ve ever done or tried to do has come from a place of weakness. When you’re learning something new, you don’t know anything about it, obviously, but what happens when you become amazing? You’ve got a story to tell.
Telling a story of triumph is one of the greatest motivators because it gives you hope that someday, you can achieve the dream you’ve been chasing.
But, so much of the time we turn away from chasing our dream because of the intimidation it brings. But, what we need to come to grips with, is the fact that there is…
We’ve all got our own goals and ambitions. We dream of doing great things to help ourselves and those around us. But, sometimes we tend to look at the bigger picture, the journey at a macro level, and get overwhelmed by where we are, and where we want to be.
This is me to a “T”.
Recently I’ve begun taking up photography and videography. At time of writing, I have no experience in photography, I just love taking landscape pictures!
This all came off the heels of binge watching Peter McKinnon on YouTube (if you don’t know who he is…
We’ve all got a comfort zone where we feel safe the most. That’s why they call it a comfort zone. right; because we feel comfortable there. Stepping outside my comfort zone has been an issue for the better part of my life. I was not a fan of doing anything new whether I’d like it or not.
So let me share 5 tips that have helped me overcome the fear that held me inside my safe, comfortable, appealing, and unproductive comfort zone.
Sometimes we think it’ll be incredibly difficult to continue being outside your comfort zone and that it will…
This week I started something that I’m unsure of; unsure of in the sense of how it’ll be received.
The Journey of a Wantrepreneur, the podcast and the publication, are for me and you to be able to share our stories of becoming an entrepreneur.
From the desires that burned within me, I began this whole community, environment, quest if you will to share my experiences, my successes, my failures and everything in between with you to hopefully inspire you to become better.
If you’ve read my posts, you know that I speak frequently about being a better person and…
For many, many years I was the kind of guy whom would (did I use whom correctly?) constantly battle with the fear of failing and I think I may have figured it out, but let me backtrack a second.
I never did anything, never pursued anything, that would prove to myself that I could actually do something lasting. I never really tried to partake in some activity or desire of mine if it took too much work because I had always told, and shown myself, that I didn’t have what it took to see that activity through.
That all changed.
It seems every month a new front-end framework pops up claiming to be “the one”.
So if you’ve been teaching yourself programming for a little bit now, you might be confused like some of us out there.
With so many frameworks popping up, how do you choose which one to use?
For example, Angular. Now they have a new version coming out like every 6 months or so, however, they’ve been around for a time now and have a reputable team behind them.
Choose the one that fits that criteria, if you want to focus your abilities. While there might…
We all know someone who has a victim’s mentality.
Everything is wrong, I don’t have this because that, so on and so forth.
I see it all over Twitter with tweets that say something to effect of “can’t go out tonight because I’m too poor” or “School hasn’t started yet and I’m already defeated”.
Is it cool to be helpless? Is it cool to seem like you have no control over your life and you just submit to natural circumstances?
What could single-handedly make your company difficult to operate? A poor team.
I was recently talking with a friend of mine, a podcast will be releasing on this subject soon, about the current state of hiring.
If you’re like us, you’ve seen many job boards advertising jobs and you’ve likely been surprised at the requirements for that job.
Everything is going to be different obviously. Working in retail you need to have some people skills, customer service skills, and a random range of skills. …
Two years ago I gathered a group of people from a little chatroom and started what would become known as KeySpark. All we had for income was my part time job in a sports retail store, which wasn’t much, but it got the job done for the most part.
We started as you would expect, figuring out a name, market, logo, all that fun stuff. It took a few weeks to get everything relatively figured out, but we managed to get some solid foundations.
We wanted to make websites for video game devs, that seemed like a good place to…
For a long time I didn’t believe that the state of your thinking actually affected the way you thought.
When someone spoke about positive thinking can change the reality around you, I thought it was just a bunch fluff; no substance.
After I started working in a retail store, I realized just how powerful the state of your head is.
If you’ve worked retail, then you probably know what I’m taking about.
It’s very easy to become unaware of your thoughts and just let them be, thinking whatever they want to think. But I urge you to be careful.
