Bullet Proof YourselfWritten by Josh Hinds
Bullet proof yourself - No, I'm not talking kevlar here :-). Instead I am talking about importance of developing in yourself, multiple skills. You might choose start a little side business. A good friend of mine started a lawn care business as a way to supplement his "real job". If business keeps up he'll be in a position to do it full time.
The key here is that he didn't start out trying to change world with his business idea. Instead, he gave life to business idea. He started working it, and as a result he's reaping rewards. Simply put, find a need in your area, and look for ways to fill those needs.
Perhaps you opt instead to go route of continued education. In this case you might decide on adult education courses, certificate programs, correspondence classes, or even an online university to finish or start a degree. Who knows, a combination of some or all ideas might be your choice. The possibilities are endless. It's up to us to take advantage of them.
Rather then focus to much on specific options, I want to drill home point that skills we cultivate in ourselves really can increase number of options we have available to us in life.
Reach Out For Your DreamsWritten by Josh Hinds
Why are we afraid to chase our dreams... Why does one person find it difficult to set out and achieve that which they desire, while others can some how set out, without so much a care in world. What makes some people achievers, while others remain simply dreamers.
Is it difference in their internal makeup? Is it in way they were raised? The environment they grew up in? When one studies lives of "achievers" one thing becomes evident. What is it that tends to shine through in case after case?
In my opinion most evident factor is that there simply isn't a set pattern. These "super achievers", if you will, come from all walks of life. These folks emerge from all social classes. Varying degrees of socio-economic backgrounds. Some from affluent families, while others emerge from economically depressed areas, and all corners of earth.
Some of these people are college educated, others are schooled through lessons that life has taught them; school of hard knocks. Many from a combination of both. However; all understand that knowledge in any form, is a constant thing to be acquired. Skills are constantly upgraded.
While each person has come face to face with giving up, they opted to befriended perseverance, and used it to their advantage. Somehow they've found a way to overcome point at which one wants to give up, trudged ahead and reached a point of achievement.
