Wow, from last month’s Wheel of Life podcast, to today, has seen a significant amount of change. Yes, the Malaysia trip, meeting my main man Hakeem Khan while doing an amazing podcaster interview, and setting myself up for another magnificent month, has helped.
However, I think where I excelled tremendously was in being efficient. With the little amount of time I had over the past month, I was still able to reach out to a lot of people and set myself up for success.
When I went to Malaysia, I met up with my main man Hakeem, who ended up showing me how to use Veme.ly, an app that I can make bite-sized videos for Instagram with an animated progress bar and other features. Since that day, I’ve connected with a guy from Guinea, a country in Western Africa. On top of that, an ecommerce brander in Alabama agreed to come on after seeing one of my one-minute spurts. Also, Malaysians, British and others (and a little failure in the midst) topped off a magnificent month!
For those of you tuning in for the first time, this is an excellent exercise to see if you where you’re at in categories. Do you have balance? What areas are you neglecting? What are you traditional strengths?
- Personal Development
- Physical Environment
- Romantic Relationships
- Family & Friends
- Fun & Hobbies
Here are my categories and explanations.
Personal Development – 10
Learning constantly about myself, my mind, and what I do in tense situations. It’s like I learn something new about myself everything that was always inside of me, but a video or text brings it out of me. I consistently go to work on ME! How can I become a better teacher? Friend? Son? Influencer? Mentor? Coach?
How can I give?
Where can I grow?
How can I celebrate?
Some questions you should ask yourself every morning.
Physical Environment – 10
Physical environment is comprised of your home and work life. Are you truly happy about both areas? For me, it feels ridiculously good knowing that everyday I go to work, there isn’t some ancient foreigner tell me ridiculous comments about “hear-say she-said” bs, and especially front desk girls complaining about other dumb shit. My job now, which I love….is simple. Go in, say hello to the girls, go to my room, do my job and that’s it. It’s ridiculously simple and simply the best job I’ve ever had.
Home life, as always, is amazing.
Romantic Relationships – X
I don’t need someone outside to make me feel fulfilled. That’s simple a fact.
Family & Friends – 7
After my mom commented and gave me some motivation, I felt on top of the world ever since. That was the first comment, of any kind from her, in 5 years. She said, “stand up for your rights,” and coming from my mother….that meant everything in the world to me.
Friends come and go a dime or dozen. I honestly just dropped a long-time friend recently because she’s an absolute CLOWN. Do I feel better? Absolutely! With holiday approaching next week, I’m feeling really good about where I’m heading with family and friends.
Fun & Hobbies – 8
This one was hard to grade, given the fact that I had just gone to Malaysia. However, I’m fitting in “me” time early in the morning, but haven’t been able to meet so many people over the last month. Nonetheless, it’s still a very solid 8.
Wealth – 9.5
Last month was atrocious, this month was in a massive surplus. Regardless of a pricey trip to Hong Kong looming large, I still have an insane amount saved up. Always SAVE!
Career – 10
Some notes from my book
Podcast interview with an ecommerce podcaster from Alabama, fitness guy and podcaster from Guinea but living in KL, entrepreneur from KL, another guy from England, two fitness guys in BKK.
That’s for podcast interviews only. Of course it’s the landing pages, ebook, ESL courses, pronunciation courses and other things that are even more exciting. The amount of feedback and attention I’m drawing in right now is EXCITING to say the very LEAST.
Health – 10
Ok, I would like to get a little more defined, but the tremendous amount of strength I have at this juncture in my life, is INSANE. I’m just so grateful that I signed up for this gym I go to in the morning on a 1-year contract. Overall, from eating…to everything else — this is definitely the healthiest I’ve ever been.
