Don’t Follow Your Passion, Take It With You – shared by Mike Rowe

If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.

-Benjamin Franklin-

What if you were told not to follow your passion, rather to bring it alongside with you? Countless motivational speakers, successful people and even our parents tell us to follow our passion. Could they all be wrong?

Mike Rowe, from the show Dirty Jobs shares a story with us about missed opportunity, explaining how our happiness does not always depend of the type of job we perform. He shares a story of a Septic Tank Entrepreneur who became financially successful and did so because the market was untapped, not because it was his passion!

Mike expands this line of thinking with his new book, Profoundly Disconnected : A True Confession From Mike Rowe By Mike Rowe

Mike continues to tell us that many awesome opportunities are available to us while we are still discovering and nurturing our passion. Don’t pass those up! They could help you make a great living, support your family, support your community and even finance your ultimate passions.  Check out this video and you could be open to a different perspective.

PragerU’s mission is to explain and spread what they call “Americanism” through the power of the Internet. They are a conservative thought bubble, producing five-minute videos explaining profoundly significant and uniquely American concepts.

How to Lose Those Limiting Beliefs! shared by Brian Tracy

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.

Jim Rohn

What would you consider a successful life? Would it be a cohesive and loving family? Financial Stability? Exploring the vast world we live in? If those goals ever seem too bold and unattainable, Today’s Daily Dose shared by Brian Tracy may help.

Brian encourages us to move forward slowly and methodically, with great confidence. He also shares a great exercise for creating a definite purpose while overcoming those limiting beliefs. Check out his new book below: 

No Excuses!: The Power of Self-Discipline

Brian is an old school business and financial speaker, reaching out via his speaking engagements, writings and coaching. What I find most accessible are his YouTube Channel and Blog; both free, updated daily with tips, exercises and mantras. Brian also includes a wealth of free resources on his website.

Having attended company sponsored events where Brian was paid to speak, I find it pretty awesome he has shared so much of his work online without a cost.

Many thanks to Brian and other creators he has inspired.  Enjoy the day!

If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree, shared by Jim Rohn

Time has more value than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.

Jim Rohn

Let’s be honest, motivational speakers can be annoying. They share anecdotal tales of rags to riches and tell us we can do the same thing with minimal effort if we desired. Could there be a speaker worth tolerating? In my quest for personal development I found one man who led the pack, his name is Jim Rohn.

Jim is no longer with us but has left an amazing legacy, which includes videos from the 1970’s forward. Those recordings are a mix of comedy standup and daily encouragement. Jim had one of the most distinct Midwest accents and a kind supportive smile that made you feel like he was sure you could achieve your goals. He has left a number of awesome reads too:

Twelve Pillars

Seasons of Life

Five Major Pieces to the Life Puzzle

Jim’s story always started with a tale of a girl scout coming to his door to sell cookies when he was flat broke. After lying to the girl scout that he had an ample supply of thin mints to not disclose his poverty, he decided he was sick and tired of being broke. Finally, he gives us the courage to be honest with ourselves and work harder rather than relying on excuses or resting on our failures.

Spend a bit of time with Jim’s talks and you will find his wisdom timeless. He tugs on the same chords we struggle with today as humans trying to eek out a secure existence. Jim’s wisdom is not just for those in business but for anyone who wants to enjoy their craft while living life to the fullest.

Have an awesome week and stay wise!

Happy Father’s Day! Generational Wisdom shared by Gary Vaynerchuk

“The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family.”

-Lee Iacocca-

How awesome would it be to sit down and tell your parents how amazing they are? Maybe even over a few bottles of wine? Today’s Daily Dose shared by Gary Vaynerchuk, aka Gary Vee is a wonderful testament to the masterpiece of family.

Gary and his father, Sasha, spend about a half hour exemplifying the joys of life together. Gary Vee is a best selling author, media guru and serial entrepreneur. His work includes the AskGaryVee Show, a forum for entrepreneurs, and an equally well done Social Media and Tech Blog. Spend a few moments with Gary and Sasha to see how one dad’s wisdom and dedication helped shape an equally wise son.

Thanks Gary Vee, to your continued success and the success of your family; best wishes for 2017.

Thanks for reading. Happy Father’s Day.
