Having a one-track mind can be good when you direct your obsession on improving your life!⁠

Having a one-track mind can be good when you direct your obsession on improving your life!⁠ 😃

As a young boy, I was one-track minded when I wanted something. When I directed my obsessive energy at bettering myself like my skills for soccer or my knowledge for school, I could do great things. However, when I obsessed over things I couldn’t control, it could hamper my mindset.⁠

Sometime during my time in 4th grade & 5th grade in elementary school, I wanted a G.I. Joe jet toy really badly. My mom said, “No, unless, I do well in school.” A year or two later, I achieved the grades needed to satisfy my mom in getting that toy. She taught me a huge lesson on the importance of bettering yourself & earning material goods the hard way. Honestly, many material things are just a bonus, most of which we can live without. When you work really hard for something, you really value it.⁠ 😊

Even now, I have a strong & long-lasting high off of improving myself instead of simply buying something to get that quick & short-lasting high. Things that I want are rewards for my hard work. By the way, I still have that G.I. Joe jet. It reminds me of the lesson my mom taught me. I love her so much.⁠ ❤️

Are you facing financial challenges? Here are 5 ways to save some money that you can apply in your life.


Are you facing financial challenges? Is it because of a business venture(s) you’re working on or did you lose your job? First of all, don’t beat yourself up. Everything we do has a risk. Nothing is 100% safe. Life is about giving things a shot. You succeed, fail, adjust, succeed, fail, adjust . . . We take chances on opportunities, learn, and evolve. That’s how we grow.

When it comes to managing your money during your challenging times, before you purchase something, ask yourself, “Is this something I want or something I need?” Only address your necessities. Put aside your wants for now. Here are 5 ways to save some money that you can apply in your life:

(1) Walk and travel by mass transit instead of owning a vehicle.

(2) Cancel services you don’t need.

(3) Use coupons and customer rewards and look for sales when buying necessities.

(4) Maximize the goods you own and express your gratitude for them.

(5) Reuse plastic bags and ziplock bags for your trash.

I’m actually practicing these 5 pointers right now to save money after I undertook financial risks with my recent start-up businesses that I have on my own and with my business partners. By downgrading my lifestyle and maximizing small deals and recycling, I lower my stress because I know I’m doing my best with what I can control to undertake my latest journey on my unchartered and often scary adventure. I have other practices that I can share with you later.

Always be grateful for every good thing you have in your life. Don’t let the darkness cover them up. Sending you positive energy!

5 Benefits of reading fiction! 📚📖⁠


There are many benefits of reading fictions such as expanding your imagination, motivating you to be the hero in your life, increasing your empathy, learning different styles of writing, and reducing your stress.

Besides this list, there are many more benefits of reading fiction. These benefits are some that have been beneficial for me. I hope they helpful for you as well!

5 Benefits of reading fiction: 📚📖⁠

(1) Fiction expands your imagination. You visualize the characters & scenes. 😃⁠

(2) Fiction motivates you to be the hero in your life. In most novels, the protagonist faces obstacles to become a hero. Win or lose, you respect the protagonist for his/her tremendous efforts. Likewise, you can do the same in your journey. 👊⁠⁠

(3) Fiction helps you empathize for others. When you read fiction, you empathize for the characters undergoing hardship, an important quality to have in your life and career. ❤️⁠

(4) Through fiction, you learn different styles of writing that aren’t usually shown in nonfiction books. 🖋️⁠

(5) Fiction reduces your stress by taking you into other worlds and into the lives of unique characters. 😊⁠

Keep stacking up your skills!


Keep developing your skills to be of great value and service to the world!

Keep stacking up your skills to be of great value for others!

Keep stacking up your skills! The more skills you develop, the greater service you can provide the world! 📚🎶💻📝🖌🛠⚖💉🎬🎥🔬🔭⚽️🏄‍♂️🧘‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Find areas that you have a strong desire to learn. For example, I enjoy reading, writing, creative writing (poems and 2 unpublished novels), government affairs, business law, marketing, graphic design, music (produced concerts in the past) and building start-ups. Speaking wasn’t a favorite subject of mine, but I’ve grown to like it. To overcome my nervousness, I took up acting when I was a teenager up until my early twenties and speech classes while in college. ❤

Rational optimism is a mindset that can boost your happiness & career! With this superpower, you look at all the possibilities that can better your life & the world. You encourage yourself to learn & try challenging things. You push the limits of your mind, body, & soul. You research a lot & then execute on goals that are difficult to achieve or even seem impossible. When you achieve a goal, it’s one of the most thrilling experiences! However, if you’re unable to accomplish it, you have the satisfaction knowing that you gave your greatest effort & tried every possibility to achieve it. The lessons you learned from a failure become a part of your foundation for your growth. ❤

In contrast, a pessimist will shoot down his/her abilities before working on them. A pessimist will also shoot down the possibility of success for any other person or organization attempting to achieve something difficult. 💣

If you want to see how far you can go in positively impacting your career, personal life, community, & even the entire world, keep practicing rational optimism & surround yourself with those with this superpower mindset. Get up every day pumped up to learn, execute, & iterate! You want to run that race, go for it! Train & give it your best shot! Are you working on a product or service that will provide value for us? Keep consistently building that special product or service word by word, number by number, task by task, & deal by deal. We’re cheering for you! 😃
