    14 Reasons to Reach out to Successful People

    It used to be a lot harder to reach out to successful people;

    That’s a given, right?

    However, regardless of what you want to talk about with your role models and people who inspire you, there are so many benefits of reaching out to them.

    Why should you reach out to successful people?

    If you’re a dreamer, and you follow others who achieved dreams similar to yours, then imagine how much could come from you conversing with them. They might just be able to help you in a ridiculous number of ways.


    14 Reasons to Reach Out to Successful People

    Here’s an awesome list of benefits of reaching out to successful people. There’s so much good that can come from simply shooting someone you admire an email. The possibilities are endless, so read this and see what you think.


    1. You Can Learn A Lot From Successful People

    The key reason why most people would want to reach out to successful people would be to learn from them.

    If you’re able to talk and converse with someone who has been successful in an area you’re enthusiastic about, that’s huge. They possess the knowledge needed to become successful at what you love to do.

    Ask them questions, learn from them. Become more knowledgeable on the one thing you see yourself doing in the future.


    2. They Are Almost Always Willing to Help

    The great thing about those that are successful is that they often have a very generous mindset. Most successful individuals will love to help other people. That’s normally how they’ve managed to get to where they are.

    Despite everything you might have been told about the wealthy being greedy and only wanting to help themselves, it’s usually the complete opposite.

    So don’t be afraid to reach out to someone you look up to, just because you think they’ll be annoyed with you asking questions and won’t want to help.


    3. You Can Easily Make Crucial Connections Through Them

    Just because you send an email or a message to one person doesn’t mean the conversation has to end there. Someone you speak to is likely to know others who may be in a better position to help you or give you advice.

    Naturally, they’ll introduce you to these people. It may end up being a crucial connection for you in the future, all thanks to you reaching out to someone completely different entirely.

    Just goes to show it pays you to try and communicate with successful individuals, no matter how likely you think they are to be able to help you out.


    4. Nowadays, It’s Easy to Reach Out to Successful People

    Gone are the days where you’d have to try and find your role models in person to try and grab a minute of their time.

    Now, it’s much simpler. All you have to do is get their email address or social media info, and it becomes possible for you to reach out. And let’s face it, it’s not exactly hard to get someone’s email address or Facebook info.

    There aren’t really any excuses for not being able to speak to people who inspire you. Unless of course, they just don’t reply. Which is sometimes likely, but that’s why you reach out to more than one person.


    5. Successful People Are Inspirational People

    As we’ve briefly been saying in the points above, successful people are people you find to be inspirational. Being inspired by others can do wonderful things for you, and that’s probably why you look up to the individuals in question in the first place.

    If you’re trying to be an entrepreneur, and you see others who are already successful entrepreneurs, it’s easy to be inspired by them.

    Being able to have a conversation with them only enhances this feeling, and inspiration is definitely something we all need more of.


    6. Surround Yourself With People You Want to Be Like

    They say you become like the 5 people with whom you spend the most time. If you spend your time with negative people, you’ll become negative. If you spend your time with successful people, you’ll become successful.

    It’s not exactly guaranteed, but the studies are there.

    So naturally, having conversations with people you admire and want to be like, will help you become more like them. Understand the traits they carry, the way they speak and communicate, the attitudes they have and the knowledge that can quickly be passed on to you.


    7. It’s Very Motivating to See An Insight to A Successful Person’s Life

    It’s a tremendously motivating experience to get a wider inside peek at the life of someone who’s successful.

    Maybe they end up telling you stories that give small glimpses of some of the things they do on a daily basis. The places they go, the cars they drive, the activities they get up to.

    That has to be motivating for you to see right? Knowing that you could one day have access to what they have.

    I’ve recently been interviewing people for the Wealthy Gorilla podcast, launching very shortly. It has given me an opportunity to talk with successful individuals and let them share their story with myself, and soon with any Wealthy Gorilla readers when it goes live.

    Trust me, their stories are motivating.


    8. They’ll Understand What You’re Going Through

    A successful individual, 9 times out of 10, will have been through everything you’re going through right now.

    Maybe you’re suffering from setbacks, disbelief, lack of results, exhaustion, money issues. Talk to someone who’s been there and come out on the other side.

    It may just give you the inspiration you need to overcome any challenges in your way. Plus, since they’ve experienced the same hardships, they’ll be more empathetic towards you, and more likely to want to help you.


    9. It Becomes Easier to Learn From Your Mistakes

    When you decide to reach out to successful people, you are making the decision to reduce your learning curve, and be able to learn from any mistakes you make earlier on.

    When you have no one to look up to, and you have something you’re setting out to achieve, you only have your own knowledge to go from. Your friends can’t help you. They most likely don’t know what you’re talking about.

    So being able to pick up knowledge from a mentor or role model along the journey you’re on, is a huge bonus.


    10. You’re A Lot Less Likely to Give up on Your Dreams

    Most people decide to give up on their dreams thinking that they’re impossible. That they can’t be done, and it’s just not meant to be.

    What if you were able to have an actual conversation with someone, telling you they’d achieved dreams rather similar to yours. You’d probably rethink your decision to quit right?

    The excuse you gave yourself to give up is no longer valid. Before you give up on your dreams, it makes sense to try and speak with someone who’s in a similar position to the one you want to be in.

    11. You Get to Experience Different Traits That Are Important for Success

    I think I mentioned in one of the points earlier on that you really do get to understand more about the different traits and attitudes successful individuals carry when you converse with them.

    This is an incredibly valuable experience for you because you are shown the qualities and habits you must adapt to become the individual you seek to be like and to have the life you desire to live.


    12. It Doesn’t Take A Lot of Time

    Let’s be real here, it doesn’t take long to send an email. After reading through the complete list of reasons to reach out to successful people here, it’ll be clear that the time spent sending emails will 100% be worth it.

    There’s not really any reasonable excuse for not reaching out to someone.

    13. You Can Practice Your Communication Skills With Them

    If you can communicate with a successful and confident individual would, then that puts you in a good position for making new connections and gives you a vital skill when it comes down to your own success.

    You’re able to pick up on how they communicate and reciprocate in a similar fashion, to better your level of communication in the eyes of a successful person.


    14. It’s A Confidence Booster

    I can’t tell you how much of a boost in confidence you receive, when someone who’s and a huge inspiration to you, and clearly has a busy life, is taking the time you communicate and converse with you.

    Not only does the boost in confidence comes from the fact they’re taking time out of their busy schedule to talk to you. It also comes from the fact you’re speaking to someone who’s done what you dream to do.

    They’ve made it possible, and maybe they were once exactly where you are now.

    Ask if there’s a possibility of having a more substantial conversation in the future; maybe through Skype or in person. Just a scenario where the person can set aside some time to talk to you in more detail.

    5 Steps to Success in any area of Your Life

    When it comes to success, we all have our own unique journey and we all don’t usually follow the same directions and have the same goals. Our dreams and ambitions are different, but the roads we take to achieve success are more or less the same.

    Some of us get stuck on the journey and others just seem to be success naturals. Why?


    5 Steps to Success in Any Area of Your Life

    I have found successful people follow some consistent steps regardless of the situation at the hand. These steps to success, as outlined in this article, are the building blocks for getting anything you want in your life. What are these indispensable steps that separate successful people from the rest of the pack?

    Here are five key steps to success you can take to succeed in any desired area of your life!


    1) Take Action & Get Rid of All Excuses

    When we try to do something extraordinary, instead of coming up with reasons why we should do it, we often come up with excuses as to why we cannot do it immediately. We often say things like “this is not the right time” “I don’t have enough money” or “ I lack the resources in order to be able to start.”


    What you are is more important than what you have. Your non-financial resources is much more important than your financial resources


    Let me give you a success secret:  There is never a good time to start doing something extraordinary. Things will never be perfect. There will always be something you’re not doing or not having, that you need. The best thing you can do is to start taking the first step.

    I have also found that when one comes up with excuses for putting things off, you will end up never getting them done. So, whenever you get a great idea of something extraordinary you would like to do, make a decision and commit to doing it right now!

    Take the small and consistent steps towards your goal right now!  You will not only feel liberated because you took action, but you will also feel gratified because you are making progress on your journey to success.

    2) Taking Risks Is Not An Option, Its Compulsory

    I know a guy that is very intelligent. He has a master’s degree in Business Psychology. He can give great advice on what you can do to improve areas in your business. He can tell you when a component of the business system is broken in two ticks and does it with absolute certainty.

    But, ask him about starting his own business and applying all the principles, he would say: “It is too risky to start a business in today’s economic environment”.

    The sad reality is, when you want to succeed at anything in life; you have to take a risk. You have to get out of your comfort zone and confront the unknown. The only way to increase your potential and success rate is to do something, which you are afraid of doing.

    To get ahead in life, you have to take risks. You need to push yourself, do the uncomfortable and you will be surprised at what you can do, the talents, skills, and abilities you have, those you didn’t know you had.

    Once again: Successful people are willing to do the things others will not, to have the things others don’t have. They know that sometimes they need to take risks in order to deliver their best performance.  Knowing that they might fail, is a fear they feel, but still, do whatever is necessary to succeed anyway!

    Following your passion no matter what is always risky but necessary in order for you to succeed.


    3) The Road To Success Is Full Of Potholes

    Whatever you are going to try doing with your life, when it comes to success, there will always be obstacles, mistakes and hurdles along the way. Successful people never got to where they are, without going through a brick wall after brick wall.

    Anything that is worth doing will require you to take action, take risks and be persistent knowing that there will barriers to overcome.

    If you want to be successful, you need to find various ways to handle the rejections, criticisms and learn to master your emotions after being knocked down. You shall have to gather the strength and the willpower to get back up repeatedly and keep moving forward.

    When life beats you down, you cannot add additional weight to your shoulders by beating yourself up about it. Thoughts like: “I can’t do this!” “Why does this always happen to me?” and “I don’t deserve it,” or similar, should not be on your mind.

    What you can do is to embrace the fact that there will be temporary delays along your path. Accept the fact that you might be making some mistakes and you will be required to correct them. Find new and better solutions for your daily obstacles and what will happen in the end is that nobody will be able to stop you.


    4) Commit Yourself To Continuous Learning

    No matter the industry you’re in, you need to continually learn. There is no graduation day. You should always be a work in progress. We all have our trials and tribulations.

    Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn. Successful people know that in the end there is no such thing as failure or rejection: there is only feedback and a valuable life lesson on how to do it better the next time.

    If you are willing to keep learning and not beat yourself up about mistakes and failure, you tend to arrive at your goals way faster.

    After some hard setback, analyze your failures and how you might have ended up making those mistakes. What could you have done better, how can you still improve? After you have evaluated everything, let go of the issue and focus your energy on moving forward.

    Another important distinction when it comes to learning is that you should always find better and more efficient ways to succeed in your area of expertise. As time progresses, try not to rest on your given success. Always be innovative and try new approaches.


    Never rest on your given success and remember there is always someone out there that wants to be in your position!

    Hence, the steps to success in learning:

    • Read as many books as you possibly can.
    • Surround yourself with like-minded and inspiring people.
    • Try new approaches and do things more efficiently.


    5) Celebrate, Celebrate & Celebrate

    No matter how small or big your goal might have been that you achieved, Celebrate It! Just as paramount as every other step mentioned here, Celebrating and acknowledging your progress and success is vital.

    When you learn how to take a step back after a great achievement and celebrate your efforts and successes, you can start building a sustainable lifestyle from pursuing your goals.

    When you disqualify this final step, you will feel like you’re running on a treadmill and not getting ahead at all because you can easily get lost in the progress.

    You shall have to be committed to a journey of ups and downs and you have to be thankful and express gratitude for every little success you achieve. Be appreciative of what you have accomplished and of the little steps you take consistently.

    Celebrate, re-energize and keep moving forward in life and pushing yourself to the next level!


    Recap of the five steps to success

    1. Take Action
    2. Be willing to take risks
    3. Know the success path is reachable
    4. Never stop learning about yourself and your passion
    5. Always celebrate your successes

    4 Blaring Signs You Need a Career Change

    Work life, either you love it or you hate it. Well that’s actually best-case scenario considering you would at least know where you stand on your career path. Unfortunately, most of us falls into another category when it comes to are current line on work or career.

    We don’t really like the work we do but we don’t necessarily hate the work either. There may be things that truly get under your skin but your still kind of comfortable in the position. That’s a very dangerous place to be for anyone.

    Let me take this a step further.


    1. Your Life Has Evolved

    If you asked me five years ago what the most thought-provoking thing was I had ever seen, I probably would have told you some anime show I was really into.

    Ask me that same question now and you’ll get a 360-degree different answer. now the anime show I watched did not change, I’m the one who changed.

    I’ve absorbed much different content, learned more about myself, learned more about the world we live in and just a host of new experiences that have give me a broadening of my perspectives. That being said, all of those same can be applied to career and work life.

    Most of us in the beginning of our work life don’t know what we want to do with our life or have a vague idea of what we kind of want to do but don’t know how to go about it. Some people get into careers when they are young or single; then overtime their lives change and form to something that is really not conducive with their careers anymore.

    Having kids, getting married or just gaining a new philosophy for yourself are all things that can change that. Another situation is that a lot of times we have a notion of what a job entails when we are young; but once we finally reach that career or position we see its not exactly what we thought it would be.

    This is one of the worst things because, it can leave you feeling lost and confused about yourself

    Whichever of these situations you find yourself into it is still ok. There is nothing wrong with out growing a position or career, to be honest it’s a true sign of growth. Don’t be afraid to act on those feelings. You have gut instincts for a reason.


    2. Your Work Environment Does More Harm Than Help

    The environment you work in plays a huge part not just in your work life but your life outside of work as well. Anyone who has ever worked in an office setting where their coworkers really didn’t like to be there; or the work they do so everyone’s all Nagy and always ready to snap at someone.


    These kinds of people tend to really enjoy office gossip and just give the whole office a negative vibe. If I had to guess this is something that plagues many of a work place across the country.

    What makes it even worse is that negative energy follows you home and can really stick with you if you aren’t careful. Its pretty much common knowledge that under chaotic or work environments with constant distractions work production is cut by more that 50%.

    That’s really no surprise considering on average it takes about 25 minutes to get back focused once you’ve been distracted. What it all boils down to is, if your work environment is not working for you, then you shouldn’t be working for it.


    3. Your Industry Is Dying

    This is a huge one that a lot of people are facing in today’s work climate. Many industries have become all but extinct due to technology improvement and innovation.

    Most people hear that and instantly think of the fast food industry and lower level jobs in that nature, but it goes far beyond just that. If you want a prime example, look no further that the taxi industry. It had been obliterated by the rapid rise of Uber.

    Some of the biggest taxi companies that have established brands names and have been around for decades are finding themselves in a bit of trouble. There was no way they could have predicted such a service would come along that allows people to share their car with others, but it did.

    Here are a few tips for those in a similar situation:

    • Take the skills and knowledge you’ve amounted in your current career and find a way to apply it to another profession.
    • Looks for possible innovations that can be implemented into your current field that beings it some new life.
    • Simply find a new industry all together! That may sound scary but its never to late to learn something new.

    There are so many options as comes to earning money and doing what you love. Don’t be afraid to try something new and refreshing if you feel your current position makes you feel old and stagnant or just doesn’t supply what you need anymore.


    4. Your Work Does Not Inspire You Anymore

    Finally, we are to the real meat and potatoes of this thing. One of the biggest issues with today’s society is that so many people are doing jobs that they A. don’t feel are important or truly impactful, B. the work they are doing does not inspire or spark them at all.

    To be completely honesty it shows. So many people are unhappy with their lives; and a lot of times it stems from the kind of work they are doing on an everyday basis.

    If you find yourself in this situation, get out now! I’m about to mention something we have all heard a million times but it’s true. Say you want to really excel at something, make sure it is something that you are passionate about because if its not it wont last.

    The level of success that we all want takes more than just wanting it, you must have a bit of an obsession if you really, deeply want it. when times get hard your inspiration, hunger and drive is what will push you forward.

    If you don’t have a powerful underlying reason for you wanting or doing something impactful or huge, what’s going to keep you going through the times of hardship? Those days will come but that’s all a part of the game.

    Find a career path that not only gives you meaning but something that puts a fire in your soul. When you love what you do you are not working, your building. I promise it will take you far.



    Here’s a quick recap on the 4 signs you need a career change:

    1. Your life has evolved
    2. Your work environment does more harm than help
    3. Your industry is dying
    4. Your work does not inspire you anymore

    Learn How successful leaders recover from failure

    Close your eyes for a while and think of the most inspirational leaders you know? Let there be a renowned business possessor, politician, executive or a person who has personally mentored you, It’s a guarantee that these people have made plenty of blunders, and they have been unsuccessful for countless times before.


    Do you know why? Because they are human beings just like you. Failure is the major part of the successful journey. But you cannot avoid this; instead, you should know how to overcome that failure.

    Time and again these reasons have proved the best on how a leader can turn failure into success. Find out the reasons below:-

    Deal failure with a good attitude:

    Failure is basically termed as a learning process though people don’t think about it that way and particularly if they have seen success in life. Nevertheless, failure can be just as valuable as an accomplishment is.

    It is a saying that when you face failure, don’t be afraid, instead deal with it in a positive manner, these experiences would make a better entrepreneur.


    Own up immediately:

    One should always admit their faults and avoid making mistakes or blaming others. Admitting in front of the world is not important but admitting in front of the one who needs to know is necessary. Doing this will be inspiring to its employees and they would also own up when they fail. Also, never shame a person for his mistakes; rather treat him as a primary learning experience.

    Fix and Failure:

    A leader is responsible for teaching the employees and helping them recover or find solutions. If there are some financial issues, try to recover as much as possible. But if the damage is collateral, apologize immediately and try to restore trust.

    Analyze what went wrong:

    After learning from failures will the chance of a repetition of mistakes vanish? Full transparency would uncover solutions, understanding and commitment to change.

    Move on:-

    The worst ever thing a leader might do is throw in the towel after a failure.

    Have you ever thought that if you lose your job because of the failure at the workplace? You will still continue to apply and work in further organizations.

    Tips on getting Leaves at Work Place

    Organisations generally don’t give leaves to its employees that easily. Also on top of this employee is entitled to a specific number of leaves in the company. But employees avoid taking leaves as they save it for the future.There are ways and means through which you can approach your manager and ask for planned leaves. Check out these tips which would help you reach out to your manager in an amicable way:-

    Plan when to ask:

    Plan to ask when it’s the right time of the day, week or month. See when your boss would be more receptive. Make sure the time is relevant and also the time after successful completion of events or projects.

    Schedule your time in advance:

    Manage all your work before going on a vacation. If you need time on a short notice, ensure that your boss is aware that you are caught up.

    Don’t ask a peak time:

    Move off from the time when your manager needs more hands on the deck. You cant ask for leaves immediately before the deadline.


    Write down for request time off:

    Remember to request time off in writing. An email to the manager is important and also putting the important people of the country on CC is basic.

    Social Media Do’s and Don’ts During a Job Search

    There are several social media sites which may assist you in finding a job or connecting with people. Although it works both ways round. When social media is useful in some way, it can also have a negative effect if we think the other way round. It is necessary to be attentive and think of proper ideas to ace a job through social platforms.


    Don’t spend time with your boss’s dime-

    The obvious thing a person does while searching for appropriate jobs in search of vacancies which are matching the search criteria and then applying to them, talking to the HR’s of different firms and uploading or sending resume. A lot of people monitor through its employees and hence applying to jobs from the office computer or account is not advisable.

    Don’t connect everyone-

    Though it is assumed that one should connect with everybody on social platforms but the quality is more important than quantity. Before connecting with people just analyze whether he or she is capable of helping you in any sense or is he useful in getting a job? If not! Move on.

    Give to get-

    The more you are using for others the more they’ll be of your use. Manage some time out to connect with people in your profile. Giving to get is a great theory if applied. Start recommending on LinkedIn, introduce people to other people, and share some piece of advises or work. This way you might get great favor in return.


    Build a network in advance-

    Build network prior to any situation when you need to. Create connections in your industry or field of career. Talk to connections on LinkedIn or Twitter. This would help you when you accidentally lose your job or want to change your job, as you can get a job easily.

    Google your name to know what’s on social media-

    Sometimes typing name on Google displays a variety of information about the person. This is how a recruiter can take out secret information which you might have thought of keeping it as a secret.

    Be consistent-

    Check if your qualifications in the resume have the same information that you have on your Facebook or LinkedIn profile. The bad part is if your dates or designations in your documents don’t tally, it might create a great amount of trouble.

    Create an online presence-

    When you are in search of a job and you are willing to get a career growth, online presence plays a great role in this case. The online social media pages would help you in connecting with contacts and they would also assist you in searching for an opportunity to grow their career ladder.

    Age: 30
    Born: May 6, 1987
    Country of Origin: United States of America
    Source of Wealth: Professional Rapper
    Last Updated: 2018


    Meek Mill is an American rapper and songwriter from South Philadelphia. His career began as a battle rapper, before he was signed to T.I’s Grand Hustle Records, and then Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group.

    Mill has often appeared in the news for one of his many feuds with other rappers, including Drake, The Game, Kendrick Lamar, and 50 Cent.

    As of 2018, Meek Mill’s net worth is estimated to be $9 million.

    Early Life

    Meek Mill was born Robert Rihmeek Williams, on May 6, 1987, in South Philadelphia. Mill and his sister were raised by their mother, as Meek’s father unfortunately passed away when he was only 5 years old.

    The family lived in poverty, and Meek was very shy/quiet as a child. When he was a teenager, he gained an interest in performing in rap battles. He’d stay up late just to scribble down rhymes in his notebooks.

    Meek Mill was arrested at the age of 18 for illegally possessing a firearm, and was beaten by police. He was charged with assaulting the police officers, and was put on probation.


    Meek Mill’s career began in 2003, when he formed the rap group ‘The Bloodhoundz’ with three of his friends. the group released four mix-tapes, and then Mill started to gain interest from fellow rappers and record companies.

    T.I signed Meek Mill to Grand Hustle Records, and gave him the opportunity to tour with him. However, Meek was shortly arrested after once again for illegal gun possession, as well as drug possession.

    Mill served seven months in prison because of this.

    He was signed to Maybach Music Group in 2011, and really started to see mainstream success during this time; after collaborating with rappers such as Birdman, Lil Wayne, and DJ Khaled.

    Throughout his career, Meek Mill has released several studio albums, EP’s, and Mix-tapes. Many of which we will highlight in the next section below.

    However, Mill is currently serving a 2 to 4 year sentence in prison, due to violating his parole. The story has been featured in the news this week due to an ex-cop coming forward, and stating that another officer lied to send him back to prison. It’s very likely that he’ll be released much earlier than the original sentence stated above, but for now we cannot say.

    As of 2018, Meek Mill’s net worth is estimated to be $9 million.


    Here are some of the best highlights of Meek Mill’s career:

    • Flamers (2008)
    • Flamers 2: Hottest In That City (2009)
    • Mr. Philadelphia (2010)
    • Dreamchasers (2011)
    • Dreamchasers 2 (2012)
    • Dreams and Nightmares (2012)
    • Dreams Worth More Than Money (2015)
    • 4/4 (2016)
    • Meekend Music (2017)
    • Wins & Losses (2017)

    Sometimes you don’t realize how stressed you are until the volcano in your brain is about to erupt. When that happens, it’s nice to have a game plan to fall back on. While I was working in the ambulance as an EMT, I had more than a few stressful days at work.

    It takes a while for long-term stress from a chaotic job to build up. I made it through about a year of emergency medicine before it was time to get proactive about staying cool. I settled on a few key tricks.

    How to Calm Down in 5 Minutes or Less

    Number one is music. Nothing has a more powerful and immediate impact on motivation and mood. Music is one of the only treatments that temporarily reduce symptoms of patients with late-stage degenerative brain disease. If it can work on them, it can work for you too.

    Number two is exercise. Exercise burns off excess stress hormones that build up throughout the day. It also releases feel-good endorphins while boosting mental clarity with the production of BDNF in the brain.

    Number three is the sense of smell. Your nose is a direct line of communication to the amygdala, the area of the brain most strongly tied to emotions and memory recall. You can use it to ground yourself after moments of high stress.

    Hot potato! You’re stressed! What. Do. You. Do?!

    1. Press play on your strategically curated chill-out playlist.
    2. Do a couple of minutes of high-intensity exercise (push-ups, squats, lunges, whatever’s accessible and gets your blood pumping).
    3. Take a whiff of success by smelling the good stuff (could be lavender, could be anything tied to positive memories).

    In the time it takes to listen to one song, you’ll be ready to run another 911 call or deal with whatever emergency life throws your way next.


    Step 1: Chill Out With Some Tune-age

    Chances are if you’re in the middle of a shift at work, you’re not going to have a ton of time to step aside and ease your troubled mind. If you have time to listen to a song somewhere relatively private, you have time to de-stress at work.

    Music has a powerful impact on emotional state, memory, creativity, and workflow. You need all of these to be in tip-top shape if you want to crush the work day. Have a pre-made playlist of songs ready to go.

    Aesthetically, research shows that fast-paced instrumental music is best for getting you pumped, but it’s less effective for calming you down. Lyrics can distract you from allowing your mind process what’s stressing you out.

    For the best results, pick songs that are slower, laid-back, and instrumental. They’ll give you a nice blank canvass to project your thoughts onto so that you can deal with the moment and move on. Songs that have strong emotional ties to happy memories can be are best.

    Step 2: Destroy Brain Fog With Exercise

    Exercise is one of the most powerful cognitive enhancers I’ve tried, no joke.

    When it comes to stress-reduction, it’s a tool of titans. Hormones are in the driver’s seat of your mind more than you realize. Chronically elevated cortisol levels have a cascading adverse effect on motivation and mood stability by causing hormonal imbalances throughout the body.

    High-intensity exercise is proven to ramp up BDNF levels in the brain. BDNF what!? Brain-derived neurotrophic factor is one of the most influential (and least well-known) proteins in the brain.

    Supplements that boost BDNF include fish oil and turmeric, but nothing compares to the effects of exercise. BDNF is critical for neurogenesis, the formation of new neurons in the brain

    Dr. John J. Ratey, M.D. calls it “Miracle-Gro for the brain” in his book, Spark, The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain. Not only is it central to neurogenesis, but it’s also critical for protecting existing synaptic connections from damage by free radicals, toxins, and the wear and tear of inflammation.

    Exercise also triggers the release of endorphins that act on opioid receptors in the brain. Now that you’ve gotten your body moving to the perfect song, it’s time to smell the roses, lavender, or whatever else you choose.


    Step 3: Your Nose Is More Powerful Than You Realize

    On a list of important senses, the sense of smell often gets ranked last. You might want to rethink this if you’re in dire need of a stress detox.

    The sense of smell plays a central role in memory formation and recall. When you look at a diagram of the brain, the olfactory nerve that’s connected to the nose runs straight back to the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.

    In times of stress, several essential oils are proven to reduce anxiety. Lavender is the most effective and most widely researched. Rose, bergamot, and chamomile are also proven to have anxiolytic effects.

    Because the sense of smell is so closely tied to memory, I find pine needles to be incredibly relaxing. My happiest moments growing up were spent in the mountains of western Montana at my grandparent’s cabin on Lake Lindbergh, where the scent of pine was thick in the air.

    I started putting a few pine needles in my pocket at work. When my song reaches its end, and I’m sucking the wind from working out, I reach into my pocket and suck in the smell of pine trees. By the time my breathing returns to baseline, I’m ready to get back to work with a clear head.



    Bouncing back from stress is really about knowing what makes you tick.

    Get to know what music centers you, what exercises are doable, and which smells rock your brain in happy-mode. Combine these tactics over the course of a song, and you’ll be on your way to a more productive and enjoyable day.

    How hard it is to make money from Streaming Subscriptions: Spotify IPO

    LOS ANGELES — Money-losing music streamer Spotify filed to go public Wednesday, with shares expected to sell on the New York Stock Exchange as SPOT.

    Sweden-based Spotify is the most listened to the music subscription services. It says it has 71 million paying subscribers. Apple says its Apple Music has 36 million paying subscribers.

    Unlike Apple, however, it also has a free, ad-supported service which attracted 159 million monthly active users as of December, Spotify said.

    However, it noted that 90% of its revenue was produced from the monthly subscriptions. In 2017, Spotify made $4.5 billion in revenue from the $9.99 monthly subscription, compared to $511 million for the ad-supported service

    And Spotify has been bleeding money badly for years.

    The company said revenues amounted to $5 billion in 2017, up from $3.6 billion in 2016. Losses, however, topped $1.5 billion for 2017, from $662 million the prior year.

    And Spotify is on the hook for paying out huge sums to the music industry. In the filing, Spotify said it has paid $9.8 billion in royalties to musicians through 2017.

    The fact that Spotify could lose so much money, despite being the No. 1 music service, shows that’s music subscriptions is “just a bad business,” says Gene Munster, an investor and analyst with Loup Ventures.

    “It’s hard to see how they will make money.”

    A music subscription service gives much of the revenues to record labels, artists and music publishers, which is why, for instance, competitor Pandora has had such a hard time making a go of it, despite being around for so many years, since 2000. It reported revenue of $1.4 billion in 2017 and a loss of $518.4 million.

    Music subscriptions are “great for consumers,” adds Munster, because for $9.99 you get to listen to unlimited music. “You get a lot for your dollars.” For investors, it’s another story.

    Beyond the battle with Apple, other competitors include YouTube, Google, Amazon, Tidal, Pandora and SoundCloud, which all have music subscription services.

    In its filing, Spotify noted that competitors have several advantages, namely in the form of connected, smart speakers that Google, Amazon and Apple manufacture. (Spotify is carried on the first two, while Apple has kept the new HomePod exclusive to Apple Music.)

    The speakers create a “visibility advantage,” said Spotify.

    In the lengthy F1 filing, Spotify didn’t offer much to show for how it will start making money.

    It said the streaming music business is still young, and that there’s an “untapped global audience with significant growth potential,”especially in mobile.

    In his letter to shareholders, co-founder and CEO Daniel Ek said he has big aspirations for Spotify.

    “We envision a cultural platform where professional creators can break free of their medium’s constraints and where everyone can enjoy an immersive artistic experience that enables us to empathize with each other and to feel part of a greater whole,” he wrote.

    “But to realize this vision, professional creators must be able to earn a fair living doing what they love, where monetization is at the core of a creative proposition and not an afterthought. We care deeply about our creators and our users and we believe Spotify is a win-win for both.”

    Age: 48
    Born: December 17, 1969
    Country of Origin: United States of America
    Source of Wealth: Professional MMA Fighter
    Last Updated: 2018


    Chuck Liddell is an American former mixed martial arts fighter, who fought in the UFC 23 times and is a former Light-Heavyweight Champion. He’s still currently one of the richest MMA fighters in the world and is included in the UFC Hall of Fame.

    As of 2018, Chuck Liddell’s net worth is roughly $14 million dollars; and at 48 years old, people still highly regard him as one of the greatest light-heavyweights in the history of MMA.

    Early Life

    Chuck Liddell was born on the 17th December 1969, in Santa Barbara, California. He is of Irish descent and was raised by both his mother and his maternal grandfather.

    Chuck’s grandfather was responsible for teaching him, as well as his siblings, boxing techniques from a very young age. Liddell began studying Koei-Kan karate at 12 years old. You can see the tattoo on his head today, which reads “Koei-Kan”.

    As a teenager, Liddell was a four-year starter on the San Marcos High School football team, playing center and linebacker. Aside from football, he was also part of the wrestling team and excelled at the sport.

    While growing up in Santa Barbara, Chuck often hung around the Del Playa Drive, which was right in the center of the party scene in the college town of Isla Vista. He often found himself fighting with drunk college students whilst spending time there.

    Liddell became a Division I wrestler at California Polytechnic State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Business/Accounting.

    He holds an amateur kickboxing record of 20 wins and 2 losses, with 16 of those wins earned by way of knockout. When Liddell started his MMA career, he began to train in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Jon Lewis in Las Vegas, Nevada.


    Liddell first began his mixed martial arts training at 23 and made his UFC debut in 1998. He had a short series of wins after making his debut; and his first few years, he fought the likes of Tito Ortiz, Vitor Belfort, Kevin Randleman, and many more.

    Chuck won the Light-Heavyweight title in 2004 after beating Tito Ortiz. Ortiz believes it was an unfair win, and that Liddell’s finger made contact with his eye. The two fighters have had a strong rivalry ever since that day.

    Liddell was entered into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2009 and retired from the sport in 2010. However, since then, he’s made appearances in many different movies, such as Drillbit Taylor, Kick-Ass 2, Fight Life, and War Pigs.

    How to Introduce Yourself in a Job Interview

    Interviews with some people are extremely Nerve-wracking. No matter how much you prepare, you still get nervous on the day of the Interview. Well, the fact is you are not the only one fighting the battle. Almost every person faces this pre-interview nervousness.

    Though it’s not possible to eradicate this nervousness but one can go completely prepared for it, which will ultimately boost up the confidence and would help you in giving out the best version of you in the interview.

    The first and the foremost thing one should know before going for the interview is that you are not the only person going for the interview. Therefore you need to keep in mind that you will have to make an immediate connection with your interviewers. Now in order to do this, the first thing would be your formal introduction which has to be captivating. Learn how to give your introduction in the interview so as to create a lasting Impression on your hiring team.

    Tips to Give a Formal Introduction to your Recruiters:

    1. Do research work about company:

    You might be going for several interviews with different Companies. But this does not give you a license to go unprepared for an interview. Hence before you go for an Interview, remember to check out the overview of the company. You should at least be able to give a brief description of the History of a company and also what their pre-set goals are. This will help you convince your employer about your interest in joining the company and you might be an asset to them in future.

    2. Reply Brief and up to the point

    One should always be aware that the interviewers are taking out time from their busy schedule to hold the interview with you. And therefore be precise and answer what is asked to you, as they should not feel like you have wasted their time. Time management along with Communication skills are the best two qualities needed in every sector.

    3. Manners

    Remember your interviewers are professionals and have been keen on noticing gestures of every interviewee. Do not let them feel you are getting restless, arrogant, or unapproachable. Instead sit straight and talk with confidence, showing them an interest in joining their organization.

    4. Don’t disparage your previous organization

    Remember you have to be a little diplomatic while talking about your previous organization. As the way you talk about your previous organization would give them an idea of what to expect from you in future.

    5. Brief them about yourself:

    The often done mistakes by several interviewees are reciting the resume when asked for a self-introduction. Remember, they have already read your resume, now they are willing to know something more about you. Start by telling them about your educational qualification, do not name one by one, and instead name a few achievements which directly relate to your job profile.

    6. Eye contact:

    Even if you have many interviewers in front of you, just try to maintain a firm eye connection with the person who is asking you the questions. Moving your gaze from one to another is not a sign of a confident person.

    7. Be courteous :

    When you walk into the room, have the courtesy to ask for permission before getting in. Once you get in greet every person in the room. Be polite and keep a smiling face while greeting them.

    8. Be presentable:

    The first impression of a person is very important in an interview. Even if you are confident about your interview round, you have to be presentable enough about your first impression. Be well dressed, with nice pulled of shirt and hair tied up neatly giving you a fresh look.

    9. The first 30 Seconds:

    The first 30 seconds are really crucial and within these 30 seconds you can make or break your interview. So within 30 seconds, charm your interviewers and get them interested in knowing more about you.
