I am not sure why, but how fast a picture, video or movement can go viral and spread like wildfire, STILL amazes me.
About two weeks ago my mom started telling me about this cute little woman, Marie Kondo, and her organizing and decluttering lessons. My mom often gets into these kicks of learning something new and then completely masters it overnight, like she will literally stay up all night doing it… and then talks about it, a lot. I do the exact same thing and typically follow everything she does in life, because she is the actual GOAT. Continue reading “The Marie Kondo Movement – Sparking Joy”
As I have mentioned in the past, I am a complete self-help junkie. A nut. OBSESSED with it. I love the concept of shaping and creating my own reality, and having the unlimited potential to achieve whatever it is I want.
So, I am sure you are familiar with the “Beyoncé” of the self-help world, Tony Robbins. He has been a leader in this space for over 30 years, teaching people all around the world how to become the best version of themselves. He has tons of YouTube videos, books and seminars teaching about his strategies and his overall life approach.
What differentiates him from some of the other programs and “gurus”, in my opinion, are his AUTHENTICITY, REPEATABLE PROCESS, and ENERGY. You know the feeling when you meet someone for the first time and they have such a positive aura, so happy and full of life? Not afraid to laugh at themselves or be corny, and are so comfortable in their own skin? … Those types of people are contagious to have around– you can’t help smile, laugh or let loose. And they always leave you wanting more. That’s how I have always felt about Tony Robbins, except, I had never MET him. (Technically, I still haven’t, BUT I WAS RECENTLY IN THE SAME BUILDING AS HIM AND SAW HIM WITH MY OWN EYES, IN THE FLESH!!! So that counts for me.) But because of that feeling, it had been on my ‘life goals list’ since college to attend one of his seminars and see the master at work.

We are all formed by the events of our youth. Whether you like to admit it or not, what happened to you in the past has a lot to do with the type of person you are today.
Example: If you always had to work hard in school to get the good grades, that work ethic will stick when you have your first job. If your parents ate out a lot, you will eat out more. If your parents cooked at home more, you will cook more. If you grew up in a military family, you most likely have a whole different appreciation and understanding of our armed services. NO matter what your situation may have been, you took those experiences with you.
Now, how does this relate this to millennials? I am sure some of you can already guess. Think about the world that the “millennial” grew up in. Below is a chart that shows the differences in the major events we grew up with, versus those events past generations lived through. Continue reading “Growing up a millennial”
Millennials grew up in times of rapid change. If you really think about it, the 21st century seems as far away from the 20th century as the 20th is to the Dark Ages!
Some 20th Century Innovations:
- First Moving Picture
- The Telephone
- Nuclear Power
- The Airplane
- The Automobile
- Space travel
As transformative as these changes have been to mankind, the pace has been nowhere as fast as the technological inventions of the 21st century thus far:
21st Century Innovations (and we’re only 17 years in!):
- AbioCor Artificial Heart
- Hydrogen Powered Cars
- Human cloning
- Artificial Intelligence
- Genetic Engineering
- Social Media: Facebook, Skype, Snapchat, etc.
Every week there is a new app, technology or trend rolled out by entrepreneurs. And if we don’t get them or check them out, and they become the next big thing, we will be playing catch up. AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! Continue reading “Millennials: Nothing DOESN’T Change”
