“Is there a difference between happiness and inner peace? Yes. Happiness depends on conditions being perceived as positive; inner peace does not.”

Who can relate? It's amazing how many life-changing epiphanies and mindset shifts I've had while reading books. Some examples:

Chapter 9 of The 4-Hour Workweek caused me to start my first business (a mannequin company lol) in 2008.

A case study of a successful car salesman in the book Blink inspired me to quit my corporate job and sell cars for a while in 2011.

A quote in the book Think & Grow Rich inspired me to start this Instagram page in 2014.

There's something unique about the way we process information from reading than from any other media. It's incredibly powerful and impactful.

I think of books as on-the-go mentors. Learning from those who have gone before me has been an invaluable part of my journey and learning process.

I wrote a short blog post listing five book recommendations from books that I read or revisited last month. The link is in my bio if you want to take a look ☝️

What's crazy is that many of these “stories” we tell ourselves are not objectively true. They're just things we make up through our assumptions. Or they're beliefs we've unconsciously accepted from others.

Thing is, when we accept something as true, our brain immediately goes to work to find evidence that supports it. That's why our stories and beliefs seem so real to us!

Bottom line:
If you want to change your life, you must first change your stories and beliefs about yourself, your circumstances, and the world around you.

I created the Mindset Shifts Masterclass to help you do just that. Registration is OPEN NOW and will remain open only through 6pm PST on Sunday, May 21.

So much of our happiness and success depends on how we choose to look at the world.

Creating empowering beliefs (aka telling yourself better stories) puts you in a position to win mentally, emotionally and practically.

This does NOT mean you can just say to yourself, “My situation is an opportunity to grow” and everything will magically change. That's wishful thinking.

There's a difference between a true belief and just a nice thought. A belief happens when you actually experience a different connection in your brain.

It's one thing to intellectually agree with an idea, but it's an whole other thing to LIVE IT and make it yours. This is where most people get tripped up.

And that's exactly why I created the Mindset Shifts Masterclass—to help you create core beliefs (stories) that empower you to succeed.

Registration closes at 6pm PST on Sunday, May 21.

Cheers to your success,

Don't go looking for the person of your dreams. Instead, focus on becoming the person of your dreams and you'll be more likely to find the right person.

Don't chase riches. Instead, work on creating value for others and mastering your craft, thereby increasing your value.

You must match the energy of your desires before you can manifest them in your life. Work on being the best version of yourself possible and the rest will fall into place.
—Ruben

Whatever you give focused and intense energy or emotion to is what you will tend to experience more of. This is true whether that energy/emotion is positive or negative. Emotions like love, fear, gratitude and anger are all highly energized states and have potent creative power.
-
So when you let fear be your dominating emotion about something, you are also simultaneously bringing it to life and making it more real. The same thing happens when you let gratitude be your dominating emotion about something.
-
If you do not want something in your life, focus on the opposite of it. Focus on the solution. Resist the temptation to only focus on the problem. Acknowledge the issue, but put most of your energy into creating the reality you prefer.
-
Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate. Talk about your blessings more than your burdens. Focus on what you would like to experience more of and you will draw more things like it into your life.

Growth comes in all different shapes and sizes. It's not always noticeable to an outside observer. Sometimes, you are the only one who knows you're growing. For example, setbacks are often a period of personal growth.

To me, growth is gaining a greater understanding about myself and the world around me. It's becoming better than I was yesterday. It's progressing toward a goal that matters to me and appreciating the steps along the way.

What's one way you've grown recently?
