Here is a video of me doing the review of Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer.
I listened to the book on Audible.com. Art of Asking is one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened too. Amanda Palmer is a fantastic story teller. I was glued to my head phones the entire time. I learned so much from her. Especially how I should treat my fans, when I get them. 🙂
It is important to ask what you want. You allow people the joy of being able to help you. It is also a great way to live.
I absolutely love this book, and I highly recommend you check it out.
Can you really move two steps forward and one step back?
I have been thinking about this lately. Can you really move one step forward and two steps back? Is life linear?
Can you really wipe out everything you learn? I am not talking about amnesia or suffering some other brain injury. I am talking about regular personal growth and development. You have probably seen on of those, “You think success is a straight line but is really a curvy line” meme that goes around on success websites.
One thing you notice in those memes is that the line never double backs on itself. That is because it cannot double back on itself. Think about it. Can you really move time backwards? Of course you can’t. All you can do is go forward. Sometimes you actively move back, however you still have the line behind you. Even if the line that is behind you, it is not really behind because you still have the experiences. You still have everything you have learned.
Now is the time to relax and move yourself forward. You are already moving forward because that is all you can do. You might as well move closer to what you want and where you want to go. You have to go somewhere because standing still is impossible, so might as well reach the life of your dreams.
How fun does that sound? Add a comment on how you are going to move forward to living your desired life.
If you have noticed my blog there hasn’t been many posts in the last two years. Turns out going for it was really hard on me. Pretty much the last time I was consistent on this blog was after my book release party.
Vulnerability is the thing I have to learn over and over again. Turns out doing all that was really vulnerable.
I collapsed within myself and I didn’t live my passions. It wasn’t until December of 2014 I realized what I was doing.
The video above discusses my realizations and the changes that I needed to make. Now is the time I finally have used the lessons I have learned all these years to start blogging on a more regular basis.
Life is consistently about growing. Always being, always becoming.
What are your passions? What are you going to do to change this world?
Make the commitment! As of right now I am. Now I have a video that will get me back on track when I fall.
