Don’t Just “Accept it”; Try Everything You Can Do | My New Goal For Summertime

Awesomeness Fest Mindvalley

For the first time since I’ve been working here at Mindvalley, I’ve experienced a painful rejection.

It was one of those rejections that you experience, but surprisingly are not immediately affected by. But then a few hours go by, and it starts to dominate your thoughts, like slowly growing roots of self-doubt that stemmed from a tiny little seed of entitlement.

Here is exactly how I dealt with this rejection, and how it created a new and scary mini-goal for my me.

Update #2 | Awkward and Almost Pointless

What’s up lovely people. I’m back with Update #2, where I share with you nothing important. To be honest, I felt awkward and forced while making this video. It’s surprising for me to say this, because I made my last update video while standing in the middle of a public mall. Get ready for a complete let-down […]

To Change The World, Allow People To Change Yours

I was driving downtown the other day and I saw something that filled me up with joy and enthusiasm.

There was a girl standing on the corner of the intersection. She was smiling and waving at cars as they drove by. It’s as if she was just creating good vibes to share with the world.

She was holding a cardboard sign, and what it said put a smile on my face.

More importantly, it changed my world; only because I allowed it to.

5 Beliefs That Make Moving Forward In Life Difficult

Lost

I’ve just turned 21, landed a job with my dream company, and am about to move halfway around the world.

Exotic travel, crazy adventures, late-night rendezvous, orgasmic-tasting cuisine, Asian women, new people, indecipherable languages, and a kick-ass company that aims to change the world.

This is everything I could have ever asked for. I am completely deserving of this.

Yet, I feel more lost than ever.

I never realized that success can be a hard thing to handle until now. There are some beliefs that a young dreamer must let go of if they want to move forward in life with a full head of happiness and confidence.

Nostalgia Bringing Me Back To One Year Ago

There must have been millions of stars scattered across the sky. A few stars were glimmering with light, effusively living their purpose.

It’s as if they were pulsating with an untapped energy, ready to realize their fullest potential.

Beautiful. Tranquil. Serene.

This nostalgic moment reminded me of when I always used to lay outside and look up at the stars. Looking at the stars was very significant for me, especially at a point in my life where I didn’t know what my next step was.

The 3 Areas of Life I Have Discovered that Create REAL Happiness and Fulfillment

60H

This past year, I made a huge leap of faith to drop out of college and begin pursuing my dreams.

I didn’t really have much going for me. I had no experience, no credentials, and no freaking clue as to how I was going to succeed in life. All I knew is that I would stay on this new path until I found a way, no matter how long or hard it may be.

The very first priority in my life became focusing on my own happiness.

Fast-forward to today: I just landed a job with my dream company where I’ll be making a living wage as a 21 year-old, I’m about to move half-way around the world, and the path to some of my biggest and craziest dreams is now becoming clear.

I have discovered that there are 3 areas of life that define the human experience. Focusing on these 3 areas will ALWAYS create more happiness and fulfillment in your life. I know this to be true because I am living it right now.

DREAM ACCOMPLISHED | #7 Have An Opportunity To Work For Mindvalley

Mindvalley Team

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been sent a gift from the gods, handed down to me by the esoteric hands of life.

Unicorns soar the spectacular blue skies. Narwhals host very proper tea parties. Kiwi birds can say “I love you” in 742 different languages. Sunshine tastes like decadent cheesecake. The moon tastes like Havarti cheese. I am six feet tall.

These may not all be true (it would be soo cool if they were), but do you know what is true?

I have officially succeeded at achieving my dream of working for Mindvalley!

This is a monumental moment for me in my life, and I am so incredibly thankful.

But this is only the beginning. ;]
