An Ode to the Easily-Offended: You Are 100 Percent Responsible for Your Feelings, Whether You Like It or Not

REALITY CHECK: WE AREN’T REALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR OTHER PEOPLE Although I’ve said it many times and in many ways before, I feel that, given recent political developments all around the world and the emotional reaction to them, the following bears repeating: We are only responsible for five things in this world: Our personal thoughts, feelings, beliefs, words, and actions. Similarly, we are not responsible, in any way, shape,...

The Power of Intention (or a Lack Thereof) in the Manifestation Process

AN UNINTENTIONAL LACK OF INTENTION We hear it everywhere we go—people saying “I’m going to do this” and “I’m going to do that,” but then never getting around to actually doing what they “intend” to do. Some of these people understand Universal Laws such as the Law of Attraction and the Law of Cause and Effect (which you can read all about on my list of The 15 Best Law of Attraction Books...

Understanding The Law of Attraction and Repulsion (Manifestation 101)

I’M AN ASSHOLE. There, I said it. And you know what? I’m not ashamed to admit it, either, because my definition of an “asshole” is probably quite different than yours. You see, whereas most people conflate the term “asshole” with the term “jerk” and probably conjure up images of men cheating on their girlfriends, people cutting in line at the grocery store, or reckless drivers any time they hear the word “asshole”, I don’t,...

If I Had a Time Machine, This is What I’d Tell My 24 Year Old Self

IF I HAD A TIME MACHINE… If I were to go back in time and tell my 24 year old self where he’d be and what he’d have accomplished by the age of 34, he’d think I was full of shit. No doubt about it. Forget the fact that a visit by a time traveler (who would just happen to have the most amazing beard he’d never even considered growing) would be weird enough; he would be absolutely shocked to learn that in...

Why I Unsubscribed from Tai Lopez’s Mailing List (The Conundrum of Content Over-Creation in the Age of the Internet)

I REALLY LIKE TAI LOPEZ, I REALLY DO And you know what? Unlike many people, I don’t even find his videos, like the “In my garage” video that made him famous (which has been ridiculed to no end by YouTubers like h3h3 Productions) to be all that annoying, but I must say, one thing about him I did find annoying about him recently was the deluge of daily e-mails I began to receive from him upon signing up for his mailing list through his...

The Boy Who Cried Blog (Based on a True Story About a NONtrepreneur Who Was Destined to Fail From the Very Start)

MEET DEVIN. He’s a typical, twenty-something young man, born and raised in the middle of America, who, like most of his high school classmates, didn’t go to college because he knew what he wanted to do with his life, but rather because he had absolutely no idea what he wanted to do with it. Like most of his classmates, Devin didn’t pursue a degree in anything super-specific, such as could have seen him become, say, a...

TODAY AT MANIFESTATION MACHINE Today at Manifestation Machine, we do an exclusive, one-on-one interview with arguably one of the most buzz-worthy hip-hop artists/producers to ever come out of the great state of Wisconsin, Undecent (whose real name is Patrick, as he is keen to point out in his aptly-titled track “Real Name”, off of his most recent album), who is, simply put, the definition of a “manifestation...

In the Real World, You’re All Alone and It’s Everyone for Themselves, Whether You Like It or Not

WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD Before I’d graduated from college at age 20, and even after I’d spent six or so years working my first couple of full-time jobs, I’d held the belief that other people, namely my friends, instructors, and supervisors had my best interests at heart. And why shouldn’t I have held that belief? After all, it’s what I’d been taught to believe and what I’d been told was the truth...

How to Avoid the Most Costly Mistake Made by Most Musicians, Entertainers, Artists, and Authors (Must-Read for All Sole Proprietors and Entrepreneurs)

SOME PEOPLE HAVE ALL THE “LUCK” “Some people have all the luck”, as they say. They grow up with at least one if not two parents (or perhaps an uncle, aunt, grandparent, or other adult role model) that knows a thing or two about running what I would call “a legitimate business”, as in, one that not only turns a profit but also pays its taxes, as opposed to one that survives by doing “under the...

Spending Less or Saving More Will NOT Make You Rich (The Truth About What It Takes to Build Real Wealth)

THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT IT TAKES TO GET RICH Growing up, I heard it all the time: “To get rich, you need to spend less than you earn.” It wasn’t until I was in my early 30’s that I realized that this idea was only half right, if not complete bullshit. While it is true–and, dare I say, a “no-brainer”–that one cannot become wealthy by perpetually spending every single dollar one earns or gets...

How I Broke Through the Glass Ceiling, Quit the Rat Race, and Put Myself on the Path to Financial Freedom (And How You Can, Too)

THE ROAD MOST TRAVELED When I graduated from Mid-State Technical College in May 2003 with an Associate’s Degree in Marketing, I intended to apply my education to a career in music. As I’d already been recording in studios all around Wisconsin since age 17, had multiple live gigs under my belt, and become a “triple threat”, in terms of my ability to produce music, write lyrics, and perform well on stage, I...

What We Can All Learn from Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and His Drivers’ Mistakes

UBER EMBARRASSMENT Recently, the CEO of online transportation network company Uber, Travis Kalanick, found himself in some hot water of his own making when dashcam video of a confrontational conversation he had with one of his Uber Black drivers leaked online. The video, which was obtained by Bloomberg and is embedded below, puts 40-year-old Kalanick’s true colors on full display and reveals him to be extremely out-of-touch with the...

You Can’t Say You’ve Made It If You Haven’t Been Hated (The Truth About Haters and Trolls)

I REMEMBER MY FIRST HATERS LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY It was the spring of 2012. I was 29 years old and had just dropped from my all-time high weight of 197 lbs. (at 5’10”) to 156 lbs. (nine lbs. below my weight as a high school junior) before settling in at a very healthy 162-165 lbs.—a feat I’d accomplished in public on my first YouTube channel, which I’d created really as nothing more than a video weight loss...
