Feel free to roast me. The title will be something along the lines of: My 17 Idols/ Mentors At 17 Years Old Which idea do you like the most? (I know they need work. They're not finished) The first one is supposed to symbolise them showing me the way to success + me being inspired (photo probably needs retaking) The second one was to keep it simple and add a bit of mystery The third one is supposed to symbolise a meeting with them (circle of mentors idea)

Hello Everyone, I finally made the shift from "I want to upload a video to youtube" to "How can I improve my next one?" @Andrew Kirby convinced me almost a year ago, that I need to share the lessons I've learned with the world . But I was too scared to put myself out there. Then, when I decided to finally do it, it was too complicated from a technical point of view and I learned a lot about filming and editing. After hitting the "publish" button yesterday, all my fears and anxieties went away and I felt relieved. I know it's not the best video and it's painful for me to even watch it 😅 but I'm proud of myself that I did this 😊 I didn't share it with my family or my friends .. I wanted to only share it with a community like you who would understand what's it like to overcome all these mental and technical obstacles. So Kindly take a look and tell me honestly what you think 😇 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQlrE5PbrNs&t=81s Obai

I have been following SuperEyePatch Wolf and his YT for more than a year, maybe two, and as Andrew Posted YT channel recommendations I thought I'd add this one video he made. It's divided into two parts: 1st - YouTube shillers and paid courses that promises whatever you can imagine - it's rather obvious but worth watching What REALLY struck me... and I'll be honest with you, it made me rethink my goals, my strategy, my life... is the 2nd part of the video and stories of people there. If you haven't got time for a 2h long video, just watch the 2nd part and take some time to digest it. AND... don't think about it as a discouragement or anything like that. I just wanted to share how brutal it can be, and devastating to some if you haven't got clear strategy and some alternatives if things go wrong. I hope you'll enjoy it. Also, share your thoughts after watching the video as I think it will be valuable to everyone here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3xSJuoUnN8

Before starting Amazon, Jeff Bezos drew this idea out on a napkin about how to grow Amazon community. This became the operating system behind everything that they do, even their AWS business. Not that secret I suppose, but definitely worth staring at for a bit.

I don't want this to sound whiny or bitchy. But I reflected quite some bit on YouTube and found something I want to share. Could be I'm wrong. The Brutality of YouTube is that there are NO LEVELS. To speak with an analogy: Imagine you are interested in Tennis and you decide to pick up a racket for the first time, to shoot some balls. And your first competitor is: ROGER FEDERER in full Wimbledon mode. That is what YouTube as a newbie feels like. You pick up your camera. Make your first video. Struggle with the editing or sound or light or the WiFi or whatever … finally you manage to put your video online … and your video goes up DIRECTLY against MrBeast or Casey Neistat or ScreenJunkies delivering their prime game. Because on YouTube we are all fighting for the SAME limited amount of attention. So there are no levels: little leagues, big leagues, pro league, etc. Understandably your own little video gets crushed by those pros and gets very little or no attention. And I think this can be very disheartening for a beginner. As I said: I don't want to bitch or moan. I don't have troubles with grinding work or brutal rejection. As an alumni of the Sam Ovens way of business, I know that brutal grind and facing massive rejection and resistance is part of the job. I'm OK with that. It's just that this is not communicated in regards to YouTube. It's mostly presented as this creative journey. But having wrong assumptions about a challenge will almost inevitably make you fail. That's why I wanted to share this here. What do you think about that? Am I missing something? Best, Carlos

There are A LOT of similarities between video games and this Great Online Game. Here are 3 insights that I picked up from spending 10,000 hours climbing the ranks of Runescape. For context: I was obsessed with Runescape from from ages 10 to 18. I played at least 2-4 hours/day - ideally (a lot) more. I climbed the leaderboard and eventually became rank 4 in the world for a skill known as "Firemaking." under the username: Trev_Frank Attached are a couple videos showing me firemaking (some 'fans' screen recorded me) to show how repetitive this process was - and how obsessed I was. Here are 3 lessons I learned which I'm now applying to the great online game of entrepreneurship. 1) You gotta do WHAT you love - and what you love is typically what you're good at. I loved fire making. I lit fires all day. & I thought I was the GOAT from day 1. Now, I love synthesizing. I love simplifying concepts and sharing them and I think I'm pretty good at it, too. 2) You gotta do it HOW you love. My process for firemaking was very simple. Here was my process for becoming rank 4 in the world which I followed for YEARS: - Run to the bank teller to withdrawal logs - Run to the far end of the screen - Light the logs - Run back to the bank teller - Repeat this same process for HOURS (you can see this in the video attached) Now, for synthesizing, my process looks like this: - Study successful people in my niche - Write out an insight - Record insight on video - Send viewers to a freebie (pdf or mini course) containing more insights - Study successful people in my paid program When you love the process, there's no procrastination, because you genuinely deep down enjoy doing it. (I love writing posts like this for example, so much so, so even if this all gets deleted, I won't care because I love writing it more than I love publishing it.) When it comes to dialling in your process, everyone has their own flow and ideal way of doing things. All of the best athletes train differently.

Hi there, I have so many books ready to be read, all spanning different topics. My Tsundoku. Recently I made the decision to lay them all out and organise them by subject and began creating what is essentially a syllabus of the next subjects to tackle based on the skills they'd help develop. I'm attempting to organise them by the highest leverage skills, the things that have the most impactful knock on effect. The ones that took priority for me were: - Decision making - Learning more efficiently - Communication skills I wanted to put this question out to the community. What skills do you consider to be highest leverage skills that you'd prioritise and why?

Hello, I recently realized that I have a problem expressing my thoughts and ideas when speaking to other people. I can’t find the right words or the right way to express what I’m thinking, my mind just goes blank and eventually the person I’m talking to can’t fully understand what I mean. Does anyone experienced this and solved this problem? I have been trying too talk as much as I can with people, but somehow I can’t figure this out. I also started reading. Any ideas or advice is welcome. Thanks

I recently stumbled upon one 'mind tool' that made me aware of my habit of overanalyzing and helped me to work towards the change of this habit reasonably quick. Which brings me to the idea that some of you probably have one thing that comes to mind in relation to being more decisive, taking more action and disrupting ongoing thought patterns and don't mind sharing it here. Actionable, Efficient and Easy to remember tool: • 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins

Changing who you Subscribe to is a very high leverage decision. It takes 2 minutes, and can benefit you for years to come. After all... You Become who you Consume. --- So, in order for us all to improve our information diet, let's share who we subscribe to on YouTube. Find out by clicking here. Or on the left side of YouTube on browser. Or at the bottom of YouTube mobile. Comment below. I'll go first.

🎉 WTF! Two THOUSAND Synthesizers 🎉 The post I made for 1,000 synthesizers introduced the severe Disjointed Knowledge Problem. And how the Synthesizer Revolution is here to fix it. But I've never fully discussed why I'm MADLY in love with Synthesizing. Put simply, I love Synthesizing because it's the best thing I know at giving me what I want. Impact, income, and fun. . We're all playing the Great Online Game. In this game there are many characters you can play. - YouTuber - Consultant - Agency Owner - Influencer - Coach - Dropshipper - Entrepreneur Each character has strengths, each has weaknesses. But there's one that I believe is the best... You see, in any game there's a META. In everything I do, I enjoy finding the META more than I enjoy playing the game! (See first image). And if you’re optimising for impact, income, and fun… Then the current META is being a Synthesizer. Here’s why: --- WHY SYNTHESIZING MAKES THE MOST IMPACT Humans are desiring machines. "I want to be rich." "I want my back to stop hurting." "I want a pony." We are constantly trying to move from Where We Are Now to Where We Want To Go. We call the things that hold us back ‘Problems’. . Impact is created by helping people solve their Problems. And... you guessed it... That's EXACTLY what Synthesizers do. Therefore making massive impact. They privately solve their own problems, then publicly share the solutions. . And there's one word in the above sentence that separates the Synthesizer from other characters like the entrepreneur, consultant, or agency owner. PUBLICLY share solutions. Other characters solve problems. But only for a hefty fee. Synthesizers leverage free content to impact millions.

"Remember that the actions you take today wont produce the rewards you receive today. Learn to see the long-term cause/effect relationships and weigh your decisions to favor the long-term over the short-term." I needed to hear this today

As a YouTube newbie I started doing some experiments. I produced a couple of videos "from the heart". Videos I thought were interesting and I liked to watch. I released them and the response was virtually ZERO. Then I decided to switch strategies. I decided to do some YouTube Keyword research, pick a keyword I thought I could conquer and produced a video specifically for that. And low and behold: I'm getting clicks. The learning I take from this is a theory I call: YouTube Gravity. It means: If you are a big established YouTube Channel (with loads of videos, subscribers and clicks) you have "GRAVITY". This means, your audience will follow you, wherever you go. It will listen to you, whatever the topic, because they KNOW, LIKE and TRUST you. You PULL people into your world. This means you have the power to SET TRENDS. But as long as you are starting out, with a small channel, you have zero gravity. Hence YOU have to follow current trends and serve specific keywords in order to build this "Gravity". Once you are established, you can leave this path and start "producing from the heart". What do you think of this theory?
