Hello and welcome!
If you are reading this you may be wondering who I am, what I do, and what I can offer to you personally. Well before I answer all of those questions (and any other questions you may have, you can always ask); first and foremost I need you to do something for me. You must purge all preconceived notions from your mind, and concentrate on the here and now. In order to really learn, to get help, to find something else about yourself and the world; YOU MUST BE WILLING TO RECEIVE that HELP! We need to have an open mind for anything and everything we experience on a day to day basis; otherwise, the mind being closed; we no longer will be growing mentally and instead we just wither away. The second we get out of college many of us develop an over-grown ego, which is the start of the death of the mind. My personal favorite way I have heard someone express this is: “The mind is like a parachute; it only works when it is open.” – I am unsure who first said that; but it is very true.
First bit of advice I can give for free is the topic of this first post (and a song): Finding your place. How did I get to where I am now? How did I end up at a point in my life, relatively young, and having achieved all that I have wanted to so far? Well let me tell you it is not by accident; and I won’t lie; I did work pretty hard to get to where I am today; but I was always doing things at the same time that made the journey here enjoyable. I found things that I love doing; (playing guitar to start; then teaching guitar to others, etc.) and found many ways to use those talents to earn money. (I know this is cliché, but) The point is I found something I love doing, and so “I never work a day in my life”. What do you love doing? Is it collecting something? maybe you can buy and sell collectibles for a living. Do you enjoy knitting or pottery-making, photography, or some other craft in which you are creating something? Hone your skill and sell your work! Do you love horseback riding or driving? Do something in which you can offer rides, or (legally) race others and earn money doing that. There are many options out there; the point is (sorry, another cliché here:) we only live once; why waste your life working a 9-5 making someone else rich, and never going after your goals? Life’s too short; it really is. Carpe Diem! What are you going to be remembered for?
If you are interested; feel free to ask a question or comment on here, and I will do my best to answer them all. Or if you have something more personal I am happy to give you more personalized help via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for reading and keep an eye out for my next post; where I will go over how to create an outline and start changing your own life!
