“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.”


“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”

Jim Rohn (Entrepreneur, Author, The Art Of Exceptional Living)

“The business of business is relationships; the business of life is human connection.”

Robin S. Sharma (Canadian Author, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari)

When it comes to success, there are two very popular philosophies today.

The first philosophy states that you should live a short-term oriented lifestyle, despite the fact that you will likely live a very long time.

As such, you should chase experiences over material possessions, and you should not wait until you retire to start living like you’re retired.

You should rent instead of own, and travel and explore instead of setting down roots.

Living your fullest life in this moment is a way to reward yourself for hard work and keep yo...

Why Leaders Don’t Seek Apologies And Confessions

Published by: Isaiah Hankel

Topics :Emotional Intelligence

“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”

Jim Rohn (Entrepreneur/Author, The Art Of Exceptional Living)

“Leaders who fail to prune their pride will meet demise. That’s not a guess, it’s a guarantee. With pride, it’s not a matter of ‘if’ we will fall, but ‘when.’ There are no exceptions.”

John C. Maxwell (American Author, How Successful People Think)

“The world perishes not from bandits and fires, but from hatred, hostility, and all these petty squabbles.”

Anton Chekhov (Russian Dramatist)

Leaders rarely seek confessions.

This is because any time you spend trying to hold up a mirror to show someone they’re wrong is a complete waste of time.

It’s a waste of time because no one will ever see themselves as a bad person.

Sure, they might see that they’ve made a mistake.

They might see that they’ve hurt you, or hurt a group of people.

But, they’ll never see themselves as the villain.

“Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who do not. When I see a person beginning to separate themselves from the pack, it’s almost always due to personal growth.”

John C. Maxwell (Author, Develop the Leader Within You)

“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”

Benjamin Franklin (Inventor, American Politician)

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”

John F. Kennedy (American President)

People experience pain when they are not fulfilling their needs.

While you have many needs, both physical and psychological, growth is the master of your needs.

True happiness and success is experiencing growth in every area of your life simultaneously, including growth in your levels of friendship, achievement, fulfillment, love, contribution, mastery, and autonomy.

The problem is, when you stop experiencing growth, it can be extremely hard to get motivated to start growing again.

When you get distracted with th...

Your FOMO Is Holding You Back And Preventing Success

Published by: Isaiah Hankel

Topics :Emotional Intelligence

“The reverse schadenfreude of FOMO (the pain we may feel from others having good fortune) and the insatiable yet unreachable need for everything to be fine, conspire to make us distracted, unhappy, and most of all, somewhere else.”

Seth Godin (American Author, Tribes)

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the 100 other good ideas that there are.”

Steve Jobs (American Entrepreneur)

“One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.

Leonardo Da Vinci (Renaissance Artist, Inventor, Mathematician)


Being a successful leader means learning to say “no” and learning to quit after saying “yes”.

You heard that right.


It won’t be after you read this.

Look — focus is everything.

Every successful leader agrees.

Saying “yes” to everything creates competing interests and distraction.

It pulls you out of focus.

Enter confusion,

3 Ways To Lose Your Self-Respect And Happiness

Published by: Isaiah Hankel

Topics :How To Be Confident

“Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power.”

Clint Eastwood (American Actor)

“Greater self-esteem produces greater success, and greater success produces more high self-esteem, so it keeps on spiraling up.”

Jack Canfield (American Author, Chicken Soup For The Soul)

“Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.”

Malcolm S. Forbes (America Entrepreneur)

Self-esteem is a tricky thing.

In the simplest terms, your self-esteem is how much you respect yourself.

It’s a measure of the level of confidence you have in your own worth and abilities.

How much you believe in yourself, like yourself, and value yourself.

Your perspective on life and everything you jump into or run away from comes from this foundation.

And like happiness, it’s an inside job.

Like many things, we sabotage ourselves in the building or maintenance of our self-esteem, either from neglect from the inside out, or
