How to Start a Blog and Why It’s One of the Best Things That I Have Ever Done

When someone asks me what are some of the best things that I have done in my life, I name only two things – becoming a vegetarian and starting my own blog. There are probably many others as well that I could come up with, but these are the two things that always instantly pop up into my mind. And because I have already written once about my experience of becoming a vegetarian here, in this post I would like to talk about how to start a blog that you would be passionate about, and why it’s one of the best things that I have ever done in my life.

Short Motivational Stories of Failure and Success That You Must Know

The biggest possible problem that anyone can encounter on the way to success is failure. Taking action and putting yourself into something new and unknown may definitely be challenging for most of us, but it is nowhere near the difficulty of dealing and overcoming failure. We assume that we are ready to tackle any problem that will come our way, but when it actually happens, it turns out to be a whole different story. And the reason why dealing with failure is so hard is not because we don’t know how to handle difficulties, or not only because we don’t know how to handle difficulties, but more so because we fail to anticipate them. Simply put, it hits us when we expect it least.

Why Investing in a Course, Coach or a Mentor Is Your Most Precious Asset

Not so long time ago I decided to start a new online business. It took me some time to choose the business model that I want to pursue, but after finally picking one, there was another big decision that I had to make. I had to find the right people that would teach me everything I needed to know about selling on Amazon.

I am a firm believer that almost nothing in this life can be done well without having a coach or a mentor. Regardless of the field you are trying to get into, you must have someone to show you how to do it. Sports, music, languages, cooking, business, yoga, meditation, etc. – all need a coach or a mentor. Sure, you can do those without someone guiding you, but don’t expect outstanding results. If you are trying to learn a new sport on your own, there is a strong possibility that you will hurt yourself. And if it is an instrument or a language, you are going to have a hard time in the future unlearning the things that you might have learned incorrectly.
