No mistake is worth killing yourself

Photo by Chad Madden on UnsplashI’ve heard too many stories over the past several years of people taking their own lives because of being in tough situations. Stress is at an all-time high – even before COVID-19 hit. People are working too hard, juggling too much and taking on more than they can handle. Life is certainly not easy.

I read through the daily Catholic mass each day, as many of you probably know. Whether you’re religious or not, you can benefit from what I’m about to share. Wednesday’s reading included the below passage from Acts 25-27:

My Review of 75 Hard by Andy Frisella

My Review of 75 Hard by Andy FrisellaI was struggling to get motivated a few weeks back so a friend recommended 75 Hard. It’s a free 75 day mental toughness program by entrepreneur Andy Frisella. I instantly recognized Andy from the videos by Ben Lionel Scott that I enjoy watching (and I highly recommend his podcast). I’ve been working on my own 30-day program since November so I figured I’ve give this program a try along with what I’m already doing.

The Power of Gratitude

The Power of GratitudeYou’ll find several books on gratitude in the “Personal Development” sections of most bookstores. There’s a reason for that – gratitude works. If you wake up every day and feel miserable, you’re probably going to have a miserable day. Now, waking up each day feeling grateful for all the good things in your life won’t guarantee that you’ll have a great day. But at least you’ll start out on the right foot.

Five Ways to Get Started on Anything

mountainMost people fail to do anything major because they see it as a big impossible task that needs to be tackled all at once. If you’re trying to climb a mountain, you can come up with dozens of excuses: you’re not feeling up to it, it’s not the right time to start your journey, you only have an hour and it takes days, etc…. I’m as guilty as anyone — I’ve got more unfinished projects than I care to admit. But these things can be all be tackled (even at once) if you have the desire and the focus. And I’ll show you how.

I Want to Be a Better Man

 

MedalsEveryone wants to be better. We want to look better, feel better, perform better, get better results, etc…. I’ve fallen into this category and as I’ve realized as I’ve  interacted with thousands of people via social media over the last couple years, I’m not the only one. I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with focusing on improving yourself – after all, we can do some amazing things when we improve ourselves.

Seven Ways to Live Life to Its Fullest

Seven Ways to Live Life to Its FullestI see a lot of motivational quotes from my friends on the various social media services that are related to living life to its fullest or making the most out of your day. Thinking like this is a great attitude to have but it is one of those things that are easier said than done. After all, we often get caught up with our day to day tasks and by the time we get around to making the most out of our day, it’s practically time for bed.
