1. You’re getting faster at saying no to opportunities

Saying yes fast and saying yes often is a solid strategy when you’re starting out in your career. This is especially true if you aren’t sure what you want to do, a few things speed up our learning curve faster than lived experience.

There should come a time, though, when you begin to hesitate when offered an opportunity that may look good on paper but feels off internally. Maybe the people are cool but not quite right.

Keep reminding yourself that every time you say yes to something, you’re effectively saying no to something else.

2. You’re brave enough to put your work out into the world your

Putting your ideas, experiences, and creations out into the world isn’t easy. If you open yourself up, some people will do their best to shut you down.

Keep fighting hard to ignore these people. Both clarity and confidence aren’t only gained by getting things right. They’re also won by trying—and one of the most effective ways to learn how you and the world best collide is by not only following your curiosity but also sharing it.

3. You’re involved in your direct community

Working one-on-one with people is where the best stuff lies!

The people who are most confused about where to take their future spend the least amount of time with the community directly in front of them. After all, it becomes seriously challenging to understand where you’re best served if you aren’t identifying what it is about you that helps people grow.

Keep tracking how you best support people, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. Pay attention to what people compliment you on.

4. You have the stones to ask for what you want

“Most people aren’t paralyzed by rejection " they’re paralyzed by the thought of rejection. The sooner you learn that being told no hurts a helluva lot less than not knowing, the better!”

So keep reminding yourself that no one’s coming to save you and keep giving yourself permission to create your own green lights in life. It’s true what they say that the more nos you collect, the easier it becomes to get to the yeses that matter.

6. You’re doing the work that hurts

Follow your passion!” “Focus on your strengths!” I’ve always been amazed by how many people go Instagram nuts on these expressions. People we deeply admire don’t just do what comes easily to them, they also do the work that hurts.

  • What’s the one potential weakness that’s holding you back from running faster?
  • What’s the one quality you admire in others but struggle with yourself?

Good things happen when we follow our blisters instead of getting caught up in the idea that we should chase our bliss.

7. You’re focusing on finding your ideal pace

7. You’re focusing on finding your ideal pace

People who move forward today aren’t any smarter than you or me. They simply fight hard to block the noise and let other people do them while they focus on learning how they best operate.

  • How much sleep do you need?
  • What are the circumstances you need to consistently do your best work?
  • What do you do to effectively recharge?
  • What are your biggest distractions?

Keep auditing yourself. Then once you find your pace, own it. Once you find your path, the last thing you want to realize is you’ll need to completely revamp your personal operating system to maximize it.

8. You realize life’s not all about you

When it comes to life realizations, few are more important than realizing the world doesn’t stop and start at your expense, and for people to care about you, you gotta care first.

Most people wake up each day and think about all the things they need to do. Work hard to slow down that train of thought, as the most valuable people take the time to truly understand what other people value.

Prioritizing time for yourself to better understand yourself is a must. The same goes for doing the work that hurts and opening yourself up to the world as nothing worth having comes cheap.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
