Find and exploit the hidden benefits of your job – make more money

money

My goal has always been to break free from the job paradigm and own my own time. So far I am doing pretty good – I don’t have a boss or anybody to answer to, my income is directly related to my work, and I control my own time. Now I am just focused on increasing the amount of income to around the $80k a year mark, where studies have shown happiness is maximized.

A lot of people haven’t gotten there yet (or don’t even necessarily want to quit their jobs and work for themselves) but are still looking for ways to increase income, even if just for spending money.

I recommend EVERYBODY create some sort of side hustle (such as Uber, or selling things on eBay and Amazon).

5 things you should take with you when you travel

Adventure-Travel

 

I’ve had the opportunity to do a decent amount of travelling, throughout the united states and a little internationally. I like to travel as light as possible, usually only taking one carry-on size bag, so space is at a premium and I only take stuff that is useful. There are 5 things that I always take with me whenever I go travelling:

Last month’s earnings – June 2016

Monthly Earnings Jun 16

Every month I list my online earnings from the past month to give you some insight into at least a few ways money can be made on line. Whether you are trying to earn extra money as a side-hustle, or totally break free from the job paradigm and own your time, there are a lot of options for income generation and most of them are possible for anybody. All of the work I did could have been done in addition to working a full time job. I currently choose to live off less and enjoy the freedom, but you don’t have to be willing to live off of $1500 or $2500 a month for all of these techniques to be worthwhile. In fact, many of my more lucrative projects are the ones that involve the least ongoing time investment.

Two simple ways you can look better than 80% of guys out there

At the time of this writing I have been to most of the states in the union (Alaska, Hawaii, Arizona, Arkansas, North Dakota, Iowa, and Vermont have yet to be graced with my presence). Travelling to a bunch of different cities in over 40 states lets you see a lot of unique places and people – and also lets you find out what is the same everywhere.

One of the things that is the evident almost everywhere in the country is the sad state of the modern American man. The vast majority are in piss-poor condition, physically and fashionably.  Most of them wear ill-fitting clothes that drape awkwardly over fat dad-bods.

“The Unchained Man” by Caleb Jones

Caleb Jones is the writer of several blogs that I read regularly. After getting familiar with his work and reading his blogs for a while I put his book “The Unchained Man” on my future reading list. I finally bought it to read on a recent trip I went on. Like most books I have been reading lately, it is independently published by the author.

I have always enjoyed Caleb Jones’ material, so I knew I would like this book, but I wasn’t prepared for just how much. This book is without a doubt one of the best I have ever read. It covers self improvement in almost every aspect of a man’s life.

How to get anything you want

272cfaa68053dff62c518004b070be03

One of the many quirks of being a human is the presence of never-ending desires, physical and mental. Our minds and our bodies make us yearn for things constantly. These things aren’t always ‘things’ – they can be emotions, experiences, or other non tangibles. For most people it would be literally impossible to ever get everything we want. Especially since  once we get it, we eventually just start desiring more.

There will never be a point in your life where you are without any desire for something you don’t have. That thought can be freeing to some, in the same way that accepting you are going to die one day can remove your fear of certain things, but it can also be discouraging; There is no way you can ever totally satisfy all your desires and get EVERYTHING you want.

I want you to fail spectacularly

 Miesha Tate loss        

       When embarking on a new endeavor or goal, most of you will be worried about failing. You’ll usually do everything in your power to try to prevent it from happening. This fear of failure will dictate how you structure your attempts at reaching that goal. You may try to minimize your exposure so that if you do fail, it won’t be too bad. Most decisions you make on the path to that goal will be more oriented toward avoiding a big failure than they will be toward actually achieving the goal. People really, really, don’t like to fail.

Well, I like to think about it a little differently;

I want you to fail. And not only do I want you fail, I want you to fail spectacularly. And often.
