Looking for Inspiration: The School of Greatness Podcast
I am really guilty of having way too many tabs open in my browsers, to the point where I’ve had to completely shut them all down and start with a clean state – I had both Chrome and Firefox open with about 40 tabs each. Excessive.
I just have this habit of finding really good content that I want to share on my blog, but instead of bookmarking them or posting them in a timely manner, I wait until I feel like writing a whole batch of posts in a day.
So today is that day, and while I’m spending the weekend at home still recovering from my crazy 2.5 week trip to the Philippines, I felt that urge to write again.
I find myself struggling with self-doubt on a daily basis, and wonder how it got to this point. I realised, after lots of reflecting on it, that 2014 was full of so much failure and rejection and shitty things, that it really took a toll on my self-confidence. Now I’m back on a journey to an exponentially better version of me, and that consists of doing 2 things: 1. Decluttering and healing (in every aspect) and 2. Rebuilding, re-educating myself with a more sophisticated and positive mindset.
A lot of the material I come across is crap, but I’ve started to find some gold nuggets of information here and there. I want to share them with whoever is in a similar situation and hope that it helps them on their journey to a better life.
This podcast episode in a series by Lewis Howes called ‘The School of Greatness’ is a really good place to start. I’m a big fan of James Altucher and listening to him retell his story and his learnings made me feel relieved to hear from someone who had pretty bad shit happen in their life and how they have bounced back from it.
