Raw Emotion Is The Only Thing That Matters: Here’s What To Do.

I’ve been on the road this week talking about the power of creating content and sharing your story with the world.

I’ve been consistently asked how I am able to reach millions of people every single month. I’ve seen my audience triple this year.

It all comes down to this:

Got Founder Burnout? Here’s How I Still Love My Job After 9 Years

Someone recently asked me if it was a “slog” running my company after 9 years. If 15 seconds is a recommended video length on Facebook, how on Earth can I possibly still be running the same company after all this time?

It’s been nine years since I founded Little Passports, a children’s media company that inspires children to learn about the world through monthly subscriptions delivered to their doorsteps.  Someone recently asked me if it was a “slog” going at it after all these years.  In our attention-sapped world, I understand the question.  If 15 seconds is a recommended video length on Facebook, how on earth can I possibly still be running the same company nine years after I co-founded it?

I see a lot of people who are not focused. They’re trying to do too many things and then wondering why nothing sticks. My friend is one of these unfocused people. We worked together six years ago and when we parted ways, he was left broke (again). Six years on, he’s only just got out of being broke in the last few months.

How many times have you said to yourself, “If only I had 36 hours in a day, I’d get everything done”? Or maybe “My to-do list never gets shorter”? For most top-performing entrepreneurs in major leadership roles, this self-criticism can come up frequently and ironically make us even less productive.

How to Live ON PURPOSE and Maximize Every Freaking Day

Today can be as great as you want it to be.

Your fate isn’t set. You get to decide how much of yourself you’re going to put into today.

Rather than saying, “Well, we’ll see what happens,” you must powerfully state, “Today, I’m going to make it happen!”

When you go into the gym, you get to decide how hard you’re going to work out. But one thing is for certain, you’ll feel far better if you walk out 30-60 minutes later having given it everything you’ve got.

The same goes with your day.

Life is a gruelling task. It demands an effort that often proceeds your own ability. It cares little for how you feel and does its best to expose your weaknesses.
