Be Realistic... Not Me

I just want to write a blog post about being realistic. I don't know where exactly I read this advice. If I'm not mistaken, I got it from a book "The 4-Hour Workweek" by Timothy Ferriss.

According to him, if we settle our mind being realistic, you will end up in a situation that average (mostly) people took. Why I am saying this is because you let normal things and accepted by people be your goal or destination. In other words, you let your destiny be controlled by the norms of people.

Think about it: being unrealistic is becoming different. You act against the odds. You challenge the accepted beliefs. Successful people go beyond their limits. They do great things which other people thought impossible. Remember the owner of KFC's chicken recipe, Harland Sanders. At age 65, he decided to introduce his recipe to different chicken restaurant around America. Until on his 1,100 times, someone believed in him. That's where KFC started and became famous up to now. Imagine, if he gave up immediately (perhaps on a 10th try), then this food chain was not existed. Maybe you're wondering if this is a true story, yes it is (here is the link).

Most of the people after experiencing 3 to 4 failures in life, tend to give up and surrender. I don't want you to do that. If you think your product is awesome and you're sure that people can benefit from it, then no matter what circumstances are, you must never give up. Promote as if your life depends on it and assume it’s your last day on earth. There's no hard rock when it is continuously sprinkled by water on the surface. In time, that rock will eventually get cracks and cut in half.

If you felt that today, your efforts haven't been paid off, then you are halfway to success. Don't call it a quit but rather change your approach until you reach it.

That's it! When you have a calling to do something, be different. Being realistic will yield ordinary and common result but being unrealistic awaits extraordinary outcome and surprises.

I hope you like it. Feel free to share it with your friends. Thank you.

Avoid Sticking To Unproductive People

Actually, this stuff I am about to share can be good or bad. It depends on where you get influence from. If the influence can help you achieve your goals, then that is good and vice versa if it can only lead you to misfortune. Anyway, I would like to put here the paragraph I read somewhere. I hope it makes sense to you. Avoid sticking to people who have hobbies of collecting stuff which are too much expensive. In the end, you'll be like them through the influence or the process.

Earn Real Money From Your Blog

If you want to make money from your blog, be serious about it and treat it as a real business. What I mean about that is don't depend on free stuff only and operate without spending a dime. Purchase a domain name either from these two well-known and trusted domain registrar: or . Consider also the storage or placeholder of your web pages or blog by buying web hosting. It is where you have a complete control over your website or blog including the design and code-behind.

Don't Look Outside, Look Inside

I learned that if you're planning and looking on what kind of business to start in, then don't look outside and be hard on yourself, but look inside. What I mean by this is don't imitate what others are doing just because that business is in or is doing well because chances are it will not work to you or you lose interest on it as time goes by. Look at your skill sets and choose one among those that you really love doing and profitable. Meaning even if you're not being paid to do it, you wake up every day and do it anyway. You will not treat it as a work or job because you love what you are doing. But I warn you that you should treat it as a business. Be serious in achieving your goals at the same time enjoy every moment.
