If you want to change your life, or get to somewhere you’ve never been, you need to stop doing the same shit you’ve always done.
It clearly hasn’t gotten you to where you want to be if you’re sitting here reading this.
Luckily, we live in a day and age where knowledge is freely available at the tips of our fingers — do you realize how much power you have?? — Use the tools you have at your disposal and learn about what you’re passionate about!
The internet is your oyster!
I believe the secret to success is simple: taking the action to educate yourself on your passions, then utilizing that knowledge to help others while monetizing it. What knowledge do you have that you can use to help someone else with?
After all, “Knowledge is Power” so they say.
I am passionate about so many things: fitness, music, technology, flying, travel, digital media, entrepreneurship, hiking… the list goes on and on.
I mention all of the above because these are all things I love to do, which means I love to learn about them. They are my hobbies, passions, and interests, which means it’s easy for me to get lost in their enjoyment. What are some of yours?
Too often, we find ourselves wanting more from life while simultaneously blaming everything outside of us for the reason it’s not happening. But ask yourself this: How much time do you waste doing nothing except watching TV, scrolling through social media, or otherwise anything unproductive?
It’s like that line from the movie “Eat, Pray, Love” about the guy who goes to the statue of a saint every day and asks to win the lottery… until one day the statue finally comes to life and essentially says “If you want to win, go buy a ticket.” — You can’t win if you don’t play.
Get educated on what you’re passionate about, document that process and journey, share with others what you know, and learn how to monetize that content.
This is what I am doing at Apex Haus – Welcome to the journey!
