How To Let Go Of What Is Holding You Back

Let-Go-Pat Flynn

Let-Go Pat Flynn

Flashback To September 2012 homealonedelivery

I needed a second job. I needed to find a way to make some extra cash on the side in order to pay off debt, save for the future etc. You know the drill.

I just turned in my 3rd resume to a pizza delivery place. Denied. “No, I don’t have any pizza delivery experience.” I’ve worked in the corporate world for the past 13 years (jeez has it been that long)  so I guess they figure I would be incapable to drive a cardboard box to a specified address. Frustrated in my inability to land a second job I started googling other ways to make a side income.

The Lightbulb Moment

That’s when I happened to stumble across Pat Flynn’s site Smart Passive Income. I started to read about all the different ways one could make money online.  Then I stumbled across a section on Pat’s blog where he shares his income reports for all to see.

“Holy Amazeballs, this guy is absolutely killing it,” I thought

I had no idea this was even possible unless you were some shady marketer or Ebay guru. And the best part was…he was doing it while helping people! That is far more rewarding than delivering pizzas! So I started learning everything I possibly could about starting my own blog that could help people.

“Long story short Efficient Life Skills was born.”

Let Go! An Inspirational Must-Read

Let Go Pat Flynn

It’s only natural that I feature Pat’s new book, Let Go as one of my favorite inspirational must-read books of the year. This blog wouldn’t even exist if I hadn’t stumbled across The Smart Passive Income Blog and all the step-by-step posts you’ll find there.

In Let Go Patt Flynn takes you on a behind the scenes look at his inspirational journey. He talks about getting laid off from his architecture job and how that was the best thing that ever happened to him. Now he makes more in 2 months online than he did in an entire year at the architecture firm. If you like a good inspirational story I highly recommend you check out this book.

Here’s A Few Of The Most Popular Highlights

“Be open to and welcoming of unforeseen events because those unplanned moments are often the seeds of spectacular opportunities in your life.”

“If I fail, I want it to be because of my own faults, not because of something I couldn’t control. After all, what have I got to lose?”

“Everyone has a plan ’til they get punched in the mouth.” – Mike Tyson

“Why the heck am I so afraid? Why am I always stopping myself? Why am I my own worst enemy?”

“An eBook is more convenient. It may be the same information that you have on your website, but it’ll be packaged and more convenient for people to read. People pay for convenience. Not everyone wants to study from a website.”

As Seth Godin says, “Anxiety is nothing but repeatedly re-experiencing failure in advance.”

Sure, I was at the right place at the right time, but every decision I made before that call—from choosing to go to Cal to joining the marching band to running for Student Director and even going to dinner that night—was a decision I made on my own that put me in front of those opportunities. It wasn’t luck; it was reward”

“Keep your head high, and thank your former employer for taking the chains off your potential.”

“The true measure of your worth includes all the benefits others have gained from your success.”

  • Schöner Artikel. Ebenso schön, wie Computerspiele an sich.
    So verschrieen zocken auch hingestellt wird, so ist
    psychologisch bewiesen, dass das Spielen, ein dem Alter des Gamers angemessenes Spiel vorausgesetzt, förderlich für den Geist des Spielenden sein kann.
    Beim Daddeln von Games lernt man in höherer Frequenz Entscheidungen zu fällen und zwischen wichtig und unwichtig zu unterscheiden.
    Die meisten Computerspiele vermitteln zusätzlich noch Basics über Wirtschaftlichkeit und fördern die Logik des Spielenden. Sogar die verschrieen MMOs können doch manchmal den an den Haaren herbeigezogenen Effekt der Vereinsamung} umkehren. Der Gamer mag zwar schon einigen unfreundlichen Menschen begegnen, doch
    findet man nur zu oft in seinem Lieblingsspiel Gleichgesinnte.

    Summa summarum: das Daddeln ist der Hammer!
    Zocken ist Kunst.
