“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.” – Mahatma Gandhi

“The best revenge is massive success.” Frank Sinatra

“Revenge is a powerful motivator.” Marcus Luttrell

“The best revenge is not to be like your enemy.” Marcus Aurelius

Revenge is sweet.

But, only when it’s the right kind of revenge.

That is, the non-obsessive type of revenge.

Revenge that will actually put you forward in life.

Revenge that gets you ahead of someone that was trying to hold you back.

Revenge that gets you beyond a situation that was out of your control that was stunting your growth in some way.

You can leverage that energy that you get from the idea of getting revenge on the people who worked against you.

There’s a lot of energy when it comes to revenge.

Just thinking about the people you want revenge on — the people who never showed up when you wanted them to, a past relationship partner, a previous boss, or maybe a current boss — causes energy to swell up in you.

How can you leverage that energy? <...

Published by: Isaiah Hankel

Topics :Achieving Your Goal

“There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” — Nelson Mandela

“Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.” — Marianne Williamson

“A champion is afraid of losing. Everyone else is afraid of winning.” — Billie Jean King

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” — T. S. Eliot

How do I know you’re playing small in your life?

Because, we are all playing small somewhere in our lives.

Your circumstances will constantly encourage you to play small.

Social pressure will constantly encourage you to play small, even after you’ve started playing big in one area of your life.

Maybe you finally stopped playing small with your finances.

But now, you’re playing small with your health.

Or, maybe you started playing bigger with your health, but now you are playing small in your relationships, or in your career, or in your spiritual life, or in a key hobby y...

Topics :Achieving Your Goal

“I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I try to ignore the rest.” — Venus Williams

“The thing about goals is that living without them is a lot more fun, in the short run. It seems to me, though, that the people who get things done, who lead, who grow and who make an impact… those people have goals.” — Seth Godin

“People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.” — Earl Nightingale

“I think goals should never be easy, they should force you to work, even if they are uncomfortable at the time.” — Michael Phelps

Recently, somebody didn’t like the concepts I was sharing online.

It was the usual message.

Strive for self-reliance.

Figure out where you want to go and then focus on achieving it.

Don’t pay attention to other people.

Figure out what you want and go after it with all of your might.

And, somebody didn’t like that message.

They started spouting off, saying that it was a mistake to encourage people to give their full effort all the time.

They think that, instead, I should be talking much m...

How Losing Can Lead You To Your Biggest Wins

“Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.” — Tony Robbins

“Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.” — Wilma Rudolph

“You can’t win unless you learn how to lose.” — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.” — Zig Ziglar

Winning sometimes means losing temporarily.

And, that’s okay.

However, most people aren’t able to accept this, and it keeps them from winning bigger in life and in their career.

You just can’t win everywhere, in everything, all the time.

I’ll give you a couple of examples from my personal life.

When I wanted to get my first book published, I knew it was going to be very difficult to get an actual publisher, let alone a big name publisher, to publish a book from an unknown author.

I knew it was going to take lots of energy to get my book published.

But, at the time, I was trying t...

Why Trends Matter More Than Your Feelings

Published by: Isaiah Hankel

Topics :Emotional Intelligence

“Do not give in too much to feelings. An overly sensitive heart is an unhappy possession on this shaky earth.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.” — Carly Fiorina

“It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.” — Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

“One rough patch is not the big picture.” — Ellen DeGeneres

Trends are more important than your feelings.

Not pop culture trends, but trends in data.

Trends in the data about your life that you gather everyday.

You need to focus on the trends because your feelings are not an accurate gauge of how something is going.

You cannot just rely on your feelings alone.

If you have one negative feeling about a project, a person, an event, a job, or a place — does that mean that thing is always negative?

Should that one bad feeling cause you to think that the whole endeavor is inherently bad?

No, that would be ridiculous.

The reason this is ridiculous is because having a negative experience one time is what scientists call an n of one.

It’s just one singl...
