5 Worldviews You Need to Succeed at Anything

successful worldviews

How you view the world will largely determine what you accomplish, and what you can accomplish is who you are. For example, the term “he has a good heart” is irrelevant if “his” actions don’t provide proof. If you truly want to be a success, if you truthfully want to help people and better their lives, if [...]

How to Reach The Unattainable Goal of Your True Potential

This flies in the face of all we’ve been taught about how to be a better man, an alpha, a warrior, this selfless individual who does for others before he does for himself. We’re taught that a leader takes care of those around him before he worries about his own needs. We’re taught that goodness [...]

It’s Never Too Late To Chase Your Dreams

We’re oddly creative at excusing ourselves from success yet don’t bring that same creativity to creating success. We excuse ourselves from living the life we want to live because of our starting point. We say it’s not the right time to start living our dreams, that tomorrow is a much more convenient time to begin. We even coerce [...]

Motivation is a Myth. Get Hungry.

It isn’t motivation you need, it’s hunger. It’s not inspiration or passion, but hunger. Some are hungry for success and for improvement no matter how successful they get because they’re also worried that they’re losing this hunger, constantly. It’s fear of complacency that drives them as much as a desire for greatness. It may be [...]

Forget Finding Your Passion. Just Work.

“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing.” ~ Thomas Jefferson The word “work” is far too often spoken with a tinge of resentment. Many of us resent where [...]

A Bucket List Fit for a Legend

Wallace

I’d rather spend my money on experiences or on my business than on things. It’s a realization I had a couple years ago whilst sitting with a pal, pint of Guinness in me hand, cigar in me mouth talking about cars and trucks and other things that are of little significance in life’s grander scheme [...]

Small Priorities = Small People

A priority is the thing you give your time to. Your priority right now is the thing you’re giving your time to right now in this moment. Your priorities are so important that they will dictate what you accomplish in life, what you have, your level of happiness, self-worth, and success. They will expose you, the [...]

What Is Living?

bull by the horns

I know living doesn’t happen simply by breathing and being alive in a state confined to zones of comfort that we don’t dare break nor know how to do so. I know living doesn’t exist in monotony, in a mindless routine that we think we’re relegated to. Living occurs in doing what we thought we [...]

25 Ways to Find Your Rebel Soul

Live like there’s a fire lit under your ass that only action can fuel, feed, allow to grow into a blaze that will engulf the world where your name will roll off the tongue like so few legends that have come before you. Dare things so mighty that even a whisper of your plans sends [...]

Men Need Freedom, But Not Necessarily the Kind We Want.

freedom

This may sound like the most obvious statement that can be made, but men need freedom, and in ways we may not want it. Hopping in the car I’ve rented for 3 weeks here in Italy I’m in control, complete control. If I want to take a left and have no idea where that left [...]

How to Live a Story Worth Reading

Saxon King

The best books and films aren’t always those that are done on the grandest scale, but when your boundaries are limitless and you perfect the details, something legendary is created. The Gladiator and Braveheart found this balance in cinematic form. Lord of the Rings and Narnia in the literary form. Theodore Roosevelt and Alexander the [...]

Be Like Water

ROME-AUGUST 6: Campo de' Fiori with the monument to philosopher Giordano Bruno on August 6,2013 in Rome. Campo de' Fiori is a rectangular square south of Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy.

I have the terrible habit of living situations in my mind before they’ve actually happened, bringing my preconceived notions and plans into an event or a place in time, when they shouldn’t be. As a result of this planning I sometimes get flustered when things don’t go as I thought they would or should. And so, [...]

Try NOT Being Yourself for a Change

me coloss

Too many of us have settled; we’ve settled for a life that’s not indicative of what we’re capable of, a life that’s short of our potential and even our aspirations. We’ve also settled into our roles. From the time we were a wee lad, our friends, family, teachers, and colleagues helped shape us into men [...]

8 Reasons Why You’ll Never Live the Life You’re Capable of Living

Atlas Statue, New York

Excuses come in all shapes and forms, and they’ll continue to take on other shapes and forms, that is, until we remove them from our lives, and begin to live our lives on our terms. Here are 8 reasons why you’ll never live the grand, epic life that you’re capable of living. All 8 things, may not describe [...]
