I caught myself yesterday thinking “why don’t I just try harder on investing in stocks, I could make so much more money”. But then I realized something. I don’t really enjoy stocks that much, it’s made me some money but I really don’t have a passion for it. Then I reminded myself, it’s not all about making money off of things, it’s about enjoying what you actually do, the money comes along with it. If you chase the dollar to places you don’t want to go, you won’t be happy. Personally I see myself developing software for investors and not actually trying to make it a living. Just a reminder to focus on what you love and don’t let the money distract you, let it push your true passions further. I like the approach @meetrobel has with his account, it’s like he’s writing to remind himself of his mindset during certain times. Similar to the reason why I post here, to not only remind others but myself as well.
On to the next year, filled with more and more progression. Made sure that I hit every goal I set for myself last year. One of my most important was providing a resource for people to learn what I do and take advantage of it. The Simple Mentor course has now provided two students positions inside of my agency. I love seeing progression within myself, but I live to see progression in others with me. My next course begins Jan. 1st. If you’re interested, send me a DM and let’s talk. Congratulations to the students in my course who are already seeing success. Let’s make and do even more this year.
Excited for this following year. The previous has been awesome and filled with progression. If you’re interested in joining my next course, the start date is January 1st! Make sure you are enrolled by December 28th to get in, feel free to message, email or call me if you have any questions or want to know more. #simplementor
Miami has been good for round two. Looked at some apartments and still have a few more to see tomorrow. I’d like to get one in Miami while also keeping mine in Tulsa. That way friends and family can go take vacations whenever they want and have a place to stay. It’s been awesome having my two friends @campful and @iamzell__ with me this time. I love how much motivation I get when I come here. // #simplementor
Been seeing a trend going around lately. Everyone talks about how hard they work, how much they’re doing, how they take no days off, how they work 24/7 and so on. Then you never see any results or anything from them, you look back on their past six months and see little to no progression. What I try to promote is factual data, I don’t believe in lying to myself or anyone else. At the end of the day you’re only fooling yourself. It’s sad to see a lot of bigger instagram “programmers” saturating the community with lies and misconceptions. When I started programming I didn’t work 24/7, I often did it 3-5 hours a day, occasionally 7-9 hours. I focused on efficiency not the amount of time I spent doing it and i still keep that mindset. I’m not about the mindset of working all of the time, I’m about being as efficient as possible. Promoting a fake reality to your followers can surely boost your social ego, but you then have zero credibility with the people who see through that. Stop talking so much about what you’re planning and start actually doing shit, then let the people come to you. You should never have to tell anyone how hard you work, how smart you are, or any of that. Your work should speak for itself. Sorry, late night frustration rant.
Headed to Miami again this weekend. This time I’m bringing @campful and @iamzell__ along. I’m going to be checking out an apartment there, celebrating Campbell’s birthday and enjoying my third trip this month. Lots of inspiration and new ideas flowing this weekend. Time to execute this week. #simplementor
Another week ahead of us. As I tell everyone, I love to see progression. Whether it be in work, relationships or even mentally, I push myself to grow every day. I take accountability for myself and work to be better than the previous day. Someone who keeps me constantly motivated and wishing to push forward is @kamtarwater. Lucky to have her every day. #simplementor
