Motivation Theory – “Having a bad day? Well, bad days happen to good people. What separates the good from the great is how we react to that bad day. Bad days often include uncomfortably clear lessons about how to grow, learn, or reassess
So the next time you’re having a bad day, make the conscious effort to find and extract positive lessons from those not-so-positive experiences.
- Motivation aside sleeping, healthy eating, and high-intensity exercise produce a higher quality of energy than one could ever get from caffeine so a holistic approach to life is essential.
- Quit consuming sugar (refined)- quitting sugar is not an easy task.
- Make a To-Do list and start knocking off items from the list.
Tim Ferriss – Do something every day that terrifies you as a person and success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations a person is willing to have.”

Make 1 audacious request in one week (what do you have to lose?) Rainmakers generate revenue by making tasks. They ask for contracts, donations, opportunities, and also they ask to meet with leaders or speak to them over the phone. They come up with ideas, they ask for the coverage (publicity) and ask for a time (a few minutes) to pitch it and they ask for help.
But Don’t let rainmaking discourage you from your dream as it is one of the barriers to entry, and you can overcome it once you taste the victory of a positive response, then you will seek for the more short victories and might even enjoy it and making tasks is the only way to bring your dream to life.
Ben Arment on asking – In graduate school after his applications were rejected he got one of the interviews because he asked for it. He got his work published on high tier outlets because he asked and also he got free NBA tickets by asking with few players whom he saw at a hotel.
