The business of ‘freelance’ is exploding right now. Everywhere you turn there are sites and online platforms exclusively for freelancers. In other words, this is the perfect time to become a freelancer.
Whether your gifts lie in programming or design, marketing or writing, HR or copywriting, you can definitely make a career out of it in the field of freelance. All it takes is a bit of knowledge, a strong will to learn new things, lots of patience, and lots of hard work. As with most jobs, in freelancing you have to make a name for yourself by excelling at what you do, and that takes time and commitment.
We all have the potential for greatness. To develop and express our greatness, we must possess the passion and drive to live our lives with calculated risks and an attitude of faith. When we strive for greatness, when we strive to give all we’ve got to achieving our dreams, “success” is the secondary benefit.
Greatness lies in the journey, not the result. If success is our only drive, we may achieve financial wealth, but we may not achieve greatness. Greatness is much deeper than money. Greatness is an expression of our character.
When we think about earning money on the side, one of the first barriers that pop into our head is: How do I pick an idea?
Right off the bat we overwhelm ourselves by thinking about how we need to come up with the next billion-dollar tech idea like Facebook.
But I want to help you think about your idea in a different way. This is something that those who’ve successfully built a profitable business have in common: They were good at something that helped solve someone else’s problem.
We live in a society that is based on information and where knowledge equals strength. Thus, if you want to be rich and successful, you need to excel in something so that you can stand out among other people that are doing the same thing as you. To get to the top, you must continuously learn and gain new knowledge that will come in useful.
The multitude of information that is available on the Internet makes it very easy for you to learn just about anything. The proliferation of the Internet over recent years has made information distribution happen in a much more rapid pace. That is why continuous learning is necessary if you want to stay ahead of the curve and well-informed in your area of expertise. If you neglect to keep up with the latest industry trends, you might find yourself backdated and unable to make the best decisions.
This post is coming from a deep place, I hope you will recognize that. Success is celebrated around the world, but nobody cares about failure. When people fail, it’s like they are dropped into this ocean of disappointment where they are drowning slowly. Some fail so hard they cannot summon the courage to do any innovative thing anymore. Many are drawn into addictions and rough mental states that they won’t be able to break free from even when they later succeed. The psychological hit from failure can be so strong when the focus is solely on success.
Becoming smarter is what a lot of people look for. While joining brain training programmes is an option to increase your IQ, focus and creativity, it can be quite expensive. Luckily there are plenty of free brain training hacks you can learn to make your brain smarter. In this article, I’m going to introduce to you brain training hacks that will boost your brain performance and make you smarter.
If you find yourself stuck in a job and life that are not up to your standards of living, then you probably need this wake up call.
Emotions are mysterious things in life. They’re fallible, yet always in-flux. They make life worth living, yet can claim a life. They’re fleeting, yet can form our inner world. Emotions can be the source of a breakthrough, or a breakdown (including in logic.) Emotions are also contrasting. Love, hate; happy, sad; joyous, sorrowful. Love, our most precious emotion, forms our best memories.
You can train your brain to think better. One of the best ways to do this is to expand the set of mental models you use to think. Let me explain what I mean by sharing a story about a world-class thinker.
I first discovered what a mental model was and how useful the right one could be while I was reading a story about Richard Feynman, the famous physicist. Feynman received his undergraduate degree from MIT and his Ph.D. from Princeton. During that time, he developed a reputation for waltzing into the math department and solving problems that the brilliant Ph.D. students couldn’t solve.
