Always wanted to see into another person's head? Here's your chance.
I let it all out in this honest free writing session
Free writing if you haven't read my first article is where you let yourself write freely non-stop without editing yourself for a set time. The point of this exercise is to release all the thoughts and emotions you have built up and give them life onto paper, or in this case, onto an online article.
Basically, you just write whatever comes to your head for 15 minutes straight and at the end you look at what you've written and see what you can learn from it.
First things first, I'd like to win the writing competition here on InfoBarrel for the month of July. I think it would be a great way to feel good about the time I've spent here. Plus, I could really use $100 from Amazon so I could buy plenty of great books. I really love books. I spend so much time reading it's insane. It's another way I release from my day-to-day activities.
It's funny, I read and then I write. You gotta get your ideas from somewhere, right? A lot of my most creative ideas come from all the material I read. I find you get plenty of good ideas if you read enough interesting material. Unless you get enough input in terms of information, how are you supposed to output anything of value to the world. That's the way I see it anyways.
What do I like to read? For one, I love to read success books because I think it's a great way to start your day. I'm aiming to read 1 hour a day of success books first thing in the morning to get motivated and have a productive day. To do that I'm going to need that amazon gift certificate so I could buy those books!
Secondly, I like to read books in my industry to stay current on what's going on. What is my industry? Internet Marketing. I love internet marketing. It's a passion I have. I want to make a living at it. Not only that but my dream is to have at least $4000/month coming in as passive income month after month through my internet marketing businesses. And I'm confident I am going to achieve that dream.
What else do I dream of? Well, lately I've been doing really well in college and I'm dreaming of transferring to the best business college in my city. I'm going to need to keep applying myself at school so I continue to get consistent A pluses... and I'll have a pretty decent shot at getting in.
Why am I in business school? I want to get a business degree so I can learn about everything that has to do with business so I could apply it to my online ventures. Not just that, but as a plan B, I think it would be a great idea to use my business degree for social good. I could work on the business side of not for profits or stuff like that... really contribute to a great cause and earn a healthy paycheck...
What else do I dream of doing? Well, if I keep my grades up this high and I get a good job for a couple of years after college, I'd love to go to one of the top business schools in the world, maybe even Harvard Business School or Wharton to get my MBA. I read that a lot of today's billionaires did an MBA at Harvard Business School so I figured if they could do it, why not me? Right?
One of my greatest teachers ever taught us that doctors, lawyers, millionaires, billionaires are not smarter than anyone else in any way. They have simply reached more of their potential than most of us. That really inspired me. So, I'm getting A pluses in every single class I'm taking, that doesn't mean I'm better than you, or smarter than you. I'm just excelling because I'm really applying myself and I've made school a priority and you could do the same too actually if you really wanted to. Even if you're a lot older than me, if you really wanted to you could do whatever is necessary to go back to school and get that degree or Masters or PhD you always wanted. It's never too late.
My mom worked with this man who at age 60 realized that he always wanted to be a doctor. So, he quit his job and went back to school to become a doctor at age 60! Isn't that amazing? I think that is really inspiring. You have to allow yourself to dream in life and you must go after your dreams. You owe it to yourself. You deserve it too. If you don't go after your dreams, no one will do it for you.
You have to do whatever it takes to reach your dreams. In a book I read called The Success Principles, Jack Canfield has a quote in there that says no one can do your push-ups for you. That makes a lot of sense to me now. You are the one who has to take action for your goals and dreams. No one else will do it for you. No one. So, what are you waiting for? Stop expecting others to help you reach your dreams, and realize you are responsible for your own life. You are responsible for the life you are currently living and the life you will be living 1 year from now.
I feel like I'm stuck in many ways with my life... I don't want to go too much into the details but basically a long time ago I met this woman. She broke my heart. I got depressed. I was so heart-broken that I literally got sick.Then, I stopped going out with my friends and lost touch with most of them. Things turned around. I'm doing good these days. Really good. But one thing remains and that is that I still feel stuck in many ways. I'm going out with my friends now and everything and I've moved on. I even have a new girlfriend who is way better than that other woman. But I still do feel stuck.
It's a strange feeling and I wonder if anyone else feels that way sometimes. I mean my brother seems to be living such a great life and I look at my life and I feel as if it doesn't measure up to my expectations.
This woman once told me though that when we set our standards too high we are setting ourselves up for disappointment. If you lower your standards then you are more likely to be happy. I don't know if I agree with that or disagree. I have trouble lowering my standards but maybe I am putting too much pressure on myself. Who knows? I admire people who can live simple lives. I think that's the best. But I have big dreams and I can't stop them...
I hope you enjoyed reading about what goes on in my head. Thanks for reading!
