Wow, where do I even start? My entire military experience has been an extremely rewarding one.
For a kid who didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life after high school, the Army was a great fit for me.
With help from the military was able to establish my identity, brush up on the skills I needed to be a good leader, and do a lot of really cool things!
Here are some of the highlights of my army career that I won’t ever forget once I get out.
No one ever forgets their basic training experience. I…
Seeking discomfort is all about stepping outside of your comfort zone to accomplish incredible things you would have otherwise chosen not to do.
For nearly two years, I’ve followed YouTube’s Yes Theory channel because Thomas, Matt, and Amar have shown me exactly how to face my fears and try the things that scare me.
From public speaking, saying hi to strangers, or putting myself out there more, “Seek Discomfort” has been at the back of my mind.
I rarely ever feel pessimistic or doubtful in my own abilities thanks to this slogan. …
You can create a month’s work of content in one sitting.
“Excuse me? That’s not possible” is what some people may be thinking but hear me out, it’s possible, and you don’t have to understand a complicated algorithm in order to do it. After nearly ten years in the content-creation world, I have come to the conclusion that batch producing is the ultimate cheat-code.
Imagine you want to bake twenty cookies for some guests coming over later. Would you rather bake one cookie for twenty days straight or just knock it all out in one sitting? …
We don’t always have time to go for a run every day, or we don’t always make it a priority at least. And with rest days aside, the reason for my 3-day running rule was born.
On any given day or week, the 3-day rule does not allow you to go three days without a run. It doesn’t matter if the run is slow, long, or short — the key is to keep the consistency.
What I have found with running at least once every three days is that my lungs, body, and heart are all in better shape and…
A pandemic probably isn’t a time when you think you’ll meet the love of your life. It’s a time where meeting anyone new is a big risk, and we’re advised to keep our distance.
Tinder is not the place where you expect to find a significant other, let alone someone you call your soul mate.
Life is really crazy, and everything happens for a reason: the timing, the connection, the bond, the love — everything.
Let me take you on a journey and a behind-the-scenes story of why I have the most amazing girlfriend in the world.
Meeting online can…
Acquiring a long-term mindset isn’t something everyone is innately born with, it’s something they cultivate over a long period of time.
Daily doses of log-term perspective will be the fuel that gets your jets going 5–10 years down the line. If I had a long-term perspective when I was younger, I’d be much farther ahead.
It’s never too late to change your mindset. That’s why no matter how old or young you are, these three mindsets can be applied.
If you wake up and the first thing you do is scroll through Instagram for 15 minutes, that’s going to become…
Everyone says that the best investment you can make is in yourself, which is absolutely true. Life is like a video game and without gaining experience points, you can never level up.
How do you level up?
By committing to new experiences, investing money into ventures that can benefit you, and taking that first leap of faith.
In the summer of 2020, I took a leap of faith that has paid dividends, literally. Not all investments turn out to be worth it, but you have to be willing to take a chance.
Prior to coming home from deployment, I was…
Taking leaps of faith is inevitable if you want to achieve meaningful goals in your life.
Especially in the 20s, there are a lot of people who play it safe instead of being high-risk on certain ventures they’d much rather be pursuing.
Even if the venture fails, valuable lessons will be learned along the way.
By not playing it safe, many people avoid something more intense later on in life, and that is regret.
Regret is something you wish you could have done but didn’t or vice versa. …
An income that’s uncertain and always shifting around can be an enormous stressor in life.
Freelancing is very similar to running your own business because the line of work is never guaranteed and it requires a lot of hard work to be put in.
I’ve been in the freelancing field of work for a few years now and it’s been a ton of fun, but it comes at a cost. The cost is stressing out and making sure that money will be coming in.
The beauty of freelancing is being able to set your own schedule and control how much…
I’ve been out of school for two years, yet I have never stopped learning something new every day. It’s easy to give up on learning in general if you don’t have a particular structure like school.
The internet has so many ways for us to learn online in ways such as online courses (not the ridiculously expensive ones), through audiobooks, YouTube, and Skillshare.
According to eLearning Industry, 77% Of US Companies Used Online Learning In 2017. Clearly, even regular jobs understand the value of online learning.
Being connected to the internet means you are connected to the entire world of…
