Dave Oancea - I close out another chapter in my life. After being...
Everyone needs to understand that we are living in the greatest era of technology now days. The older business models will soon be obsolete ( Toys R Us and blockbuster are perfect examples )
The millennials this generation like things quick and easy. If you are a business owner and cannot see this and or not willing to adapt to the changes your businesses can be in danger very soon.
Like I always tell people. If I can millions a month from my phone why can’t you make at least $10,000 a month? Am I 1 million times better than you? I would say not but I can tell you I work 1 million times harder than most. Also what’s between my ears is a million times stronger than most as well. Remember the mind is a powerful tool. If you don’t like your life then FUCKEN CHANGE!! You are not a bird, a rock, or a fucken tree. Stop making excuses and execute your dreams💯

[Draft] A Complete Beginner's Guide to NoFap : NoFap
As a vet of NoFap (multiple older accounts) I can easily say that the computer screen is a more detrimental and addictive force than a porn site. If you quit porn but not mindless browsing, you'll plateau and inevitably fail to make important changes in your life like I did on my first NoFap run.

I went hard mode for 90+ days on my first rodeo, but there's a catch. I spent 90% of my free time playing video games. I thought it would just be a magical transformation. It isn't.

NoFap is one step in the larger campaign of freeing yourself from mindless, instant gratification. The modern personal computer is really not much more than a glorified Skinner's box for humans. You'll learn to appreciate the feeling of true boredom once you realize that what usually comes after is inspired by a genuine energy.

People, books, and the real world are so much more interesting when you eliminate lower forms of thoughtless entertainment. I recommend two days away from a computer (phone included unless using just for calls) to see just what I mean, coupled with NoFap if possible.

Mirror, mirror | Seth's Blog
If you're fortunate enough to have a selfie with President Obama, with Bono or with Sarah Jones, what do you look at when you look at the picture? Do you focus on the tie he was wearing, or her earrings? Or are you worried about the bit of parsley that was in your teeth or the ridiculous jacket you were wearing that day?

We like to see.

But mostly, we're worried about being seen.

We spend far more time looking at ourselves in sunglasses than anyone else ever will.

And social media might appear to be about seeing what others are doing. But it's actually about our juxtaposition with those others, our standing, our status… The reason we want to know what people are saying behind our backs isn't because we care about them, it's because we care about us.

The culture of celebrity that came with TV has shifted. It's no longer about hoping for a glimpse of a star. It's back to the source–hoping for a glimpse of ourselves, ourselves being seen.

Inadequacy on parade | Seth's Blog
Inadequacy on parade
A never-ending stream of pictures. People who are prettier than you, happier than you, more confident than you. Weddings that are fancier than yours was, with sun-dappled trees, luscious desserts and delighted relatives. Or perhaps it’s the status updates from everyone who is where you aren’t, but wish you were.

And the billboards and the magazine ads always show us the people we’d like to be instead of the people we are.

In the short run, gazing at all this perfection gives us a short hit of dopamine, a chance to imagine what it might be like.

Over time, though, the grinding inadequacy caused by the marketing machine wears us down.

It’s okay to turn it off.

(1) Lena Elkins - I've never told anyone this before, but......
1. As millennial entrepreneurs get better and move up, the work deepens. You become much more aware of your clients' needs, you raise your expectations for yourself, and you make the stakes a little bit higher. You start hiring some team members. Investing in coaches and mentors. Renting an office space. And then, for 90%...there's a crash. A lot of people can't handle the responsibility and weight that they've created. And simply out of overwhelm and pressure, they quit. But those who surpass their wildest dreams and continue to build scalable businesses are those who view that pressure as a catalyst for transformation. If you want to win in business not just this year, but over the next 20, learn to sit in the discomfort and trust that you can handle it. Because you can. 💪

2. If you want to see consistent growth in your business, you should always have 3-5 upcoming milestones to look forward to. Right now, I'm writing my book proposal, getting ready to go on TV in the States, and getting ready to speak in Bali. Having in-reach goals is essential to staying motivated and focused. So if you don't know what your next steps should be or what milestones you should be hitting, get a coach and get clear on your success roadmap. Otherwise, you'll lose sight of what you're aiming for and land nowhere.

3. A very small percentage of people pursue entrepreneurship, and an even smaller percentage choose to do transformational client-based work like coaching and consulting. That means that out of billions of people, you were born with a unique spark that drives you to do something extraordinary. Don't suppress that feeling - own it, love it, appreciate it, and act on it. The sooner you can harness and strengthen your god-given gifts, the sooner you can serve others and get paid top dollar for it. Not everyone was born with that spark, but you were. Now do something about it.

Weekend edition—Life after Lehman, fashion’s new look, inside Alexa – Quartz Daily Brief — Quartz
Since the financial crisis, there has been a drop-off in self-employment among 20- and 30-somethings.

Children of the Great Depression were wary of the stock market for their entire lives. The same seems true for millennials, at least so far. The data show that they choose to put less of their money into stocks than previous generations—much less.

What are you organizing? | Seth's Blog
But now, now there’s a third kind of organization going on, one that’s even more leveraged, because it isn’t easily replaced: Organizing an audience.

How do we find the right people on the right day in a way that creates value for them and for us? How do we deliver the right service to the right audience in the right way? The rising stars of our economy are in this business now, even more than production or finance.

If you’re seeking to build awareness, consider building a community instead.

If you’re working to sell your average stuff to average people (and working overtime to make it cheaper or faster), consider an alternative: serving the most dedicated people with something remarkable.
