This morning, remind yourself of what is in your control and what’s not in your control.

Remind yourself to focus on the former and not the latter.

Before lunch, remind yourself that the only thing you truly possess is your ability to make choices and to use reason and judgment when doing so.

This is the only thing that can never be taken from you completely.
In the afternoon, remind yourself that aside from the choices you make, your fate is not entirely up to you.

The world is spinning and we spin along with it - whichever direction, good or bad.
In the evening, remind yourself again how much is outside of your control and where your choices begin and end.

As you lie in bed, remember that sleep is a form of surrender and trust, and how easily it comes.

And prepare to start the whole cycle over again tomorrow.

Building in public equals learning in public.

Drafting tweets, writing articles or setting up funnels to build my business all contribute to the bigger picture: to become a better creator.

My online audience grew exponential, so did my confidence.

I'm in for the long run.

1/ Building in public elevated my life

In 2020, my goal was to publish 3 articles

Scared as hell, but I pressed publish and my first article was live. I would annihilate that target by publishing 70 articles in 4 months.

Writing took over my life and changed it for the better.
1/ Get practical

1️⃣ Your personal brand is everything - they can never take it away from you.
2️⃣ Practice as creators' mindset and you never run out of opportunity
3️⃣ Money is everywhere - you just have to know where to look.

Let me tell you this:

There's always something you can teach others.

And it's your obligation to help them.

Talking to @AlexLlullTW made me realize I should share this piece of advice:

No matter your skill level, there will be always people behind you that you can serve and teach something.

The same as you're always a level behind someone else.

Knowing this and applying it to your life is a game-changer.

Find an -1, 0, and 1 person in your life and grow.
-1 = a person that's behind you in a certain skill

Teach them, take them under your wing, or help them set up something.

You don't have to do the work for them, just give them a helping hand.

On- or offline, it doesn't matter. Help out.

One day, you were in that position.

Building a personal brand is the most powerful content strategy you can have.

7 lessons I learned from studying the great internet wizards of our time.

1/ Your Unique Content Is Your Marketing Strategy.

Nobody beats you at being you.

You want to be the only person in the world who does what you do.
2/ Once You Have the Media, You Have the Pipes

Your content allows you to test whatever you want. Building a personal brand gives you the ultimate possibility to put out your content whenever you want.

Great content should provoke thoughts.

From a Hot Dog Stand to 1.5 Million Email Subscribers.

7 marketing lessons learned from @theSamParr from one of the fastest rising tech newsletters - @TheHustle

1/ Persuasive Copywriting Is Your Direct Marketing Layer

All media is persuasive.

Copywriting within @TheHustle is used to achieve one of the three results:

1. Make people feel something.
2. Sell people something.
3. Convince people your brand is trustworthy.
2/ Run a Content Company as a Software Company

The content becomes the product.

Build, and sell it many times. Build trust, and then create more different products.

“Most media businesses are run poorly and they just all copy each other.” @theSamParr

Don’t be one of them.

Have you ever heard of skim stoppers?
I know I didn't.

Since I've learned about them, they've improved my writing so much.

I bet you could benefit from using skim stoppers in your writing as well.

Let's get into it..
Nowadays, people don’t read online.

We’re either too busy, too bored, or too impatient.

After quitting 3 jobs in less than 3 years, I think I might have
learned something in life.

In one of my recent stories, I share 8 crucial life lessons I could identify.

1 - Nobody is going to hand you something in life. You have to pursue the things you’re interested in.

You don’t have to do it on your own, but you have to do it yourself.
2 - Win or learn — as long as you learn from your mistakes, there’s no room for loss.
