Be Obsessed Or Be Average
The only thing preventing you from accomplishing your wildest dreams is merely a lack of motivation & action. It is an absence of obsession within your daily life. Obsession is feeling grateful that you can do what you love each day. Obsession is what drives you to work on your passion every single day for the rest of your life. Obsession is being prepared to do what 99% of people wont, so you can achieve what 99% of people can’t. Don’t get complacent. There’s a difference between interest and obsession. When you’re interested in something, you only do it when it’s convenient. When you’re obsessed with something, you accept no excuses; only results. The reason why so many people lack the motivation to accomplish their dream is that they are not obsessed with achieving it. No hack can make your dreams happen instantaneously.

The Reason Why People Are Ignoring Your Messages On Social Media...
Ghosting has undoubtedly risen in popularity over the past few years due to the rate in which technology is progressing. Without a standard way of communicating (such as Whatsapp or Facebook messenger), it has become effortless to drop everything and vanish out of somebody’s life. Ultimately, ghosting has become a coping mechanism for society to avoid awkward & uncomfortable exchanges over the internet. According to multiple scientific studies, social rejection is known to activate the same neural pathways in the brain as physical pain. It’s the reason why we feel depressed and emotionally hurt when somebody ghosts us, or we face rejection within a social setting. Although there is no proven way to avoid being ghosted, being honest & open about your feelings within a situation can help to encourage the other party to make their opinions also known. You see, ghosting is directly associated with how uncomfortable people are willing to feel. If they don’t want to deal with the consequences of something they have done/said, they will try and ignore you to avoid any negative repercussions. They are mentally wired to believe that preventing uncomfortable situations is the most efficient way to maintain their happiness or reputation. In a similar fashion to the so-called “real world,” people desire authenticity within digital relationships. If we do not believe that the person we are talking to will directly benefit our future, it can become commonplace to ghost them instead of putting in a continual effort to maintain the relationship. In these instances, they cease communication to avoid negative conversation with the other person about how they honestly feel. As a general rule of thumb, it’s important to note that if someone ghosts you, it says a lot more about their personality than it does about you. They are merely trying to avoid levels of discomfort. A great strategy is being honest about your boundaries with the other person — regardless of the context. Be honest. Tell the other person how you feel. Communication will help them to move on with their life so that you can move on with yours. Tweet me your thoughts on this episode & let's connect!

The Secret Behind My Strong Work Ethic: Future Self
My future self is the reason that I'm able to avoid procrastination. Podcast, take a moment and think how your future self would be if you failed to act today on any of your goals. Do I wanna work on days where I’m unmotivated? Often nope. But I do it because I know that I need to be able to pay rent and continue to pursue my passion. Do I see the fruits of my labour immediately? Often not. But I work hard so that I can have continual success throughout my career. My future self is now the incentive for waking up in the morning. Why would I want to deny my future of opportunity? Especially when those opportunities can be created today. As a species, we ultimately have two choices: Do uncomfortable things now to please and improve your future self Make future self uncomfortable and trust they’ll rise to the challenge I prefer the first one. You do not want to make your future self uncomfortable. Because your future self is just you… in a few days, weeks, or months. If you procrastinate, you’ll just give your future self a lot of challenges that will be difficult to deal with. Tweet me @travelguideanz to let me know your thoughts on the episode!

How To Learn A New Skill In Under 24 Hours
Elon Musk uses first principles to break down each idea. For example, if you want to teach your kid to walk, you first have to teach them to sit still, crawl, and stand on two feet. There’s a series of steps to get to the final outcome. Things to remember: What would it mean to master the skill? Can I break it down in small sub-skills? What resources can I use to learn it? How can I track my progress? Once you break down the theory of how to achieve a certain outcome, you simply need to put everything into practise. If you keep pursuing the skill every single day, you’ll be able to get better with every single hour. Tweet me your thoughts of the episode on Twitter. Have an awesome day!

My 2019 Manifesto
What's up podcast... What you're able to listen to is a mashup of my thoughts & ambitions over the next 5, 10, 50 years. I don’t want something to be easy. I never do. I need it to be possible. Every single day, I’m trying to figure out this game called life. I’m trying to understand behavior, attention, and how to deploy it in the best possible way. Every single day, I’m learning the algorithms of platforms, networking with influencers & CEOS, and putting out content surrounding my thoughts… my truth. Every single day, I’m becoming a better version of myself. I’m happy. That’s what matters. I have the intestinal fortitude to work every single day, 365. Because if I'm not, I’m suffocating. I need to be doing what I’m talented at. What makes me happy. I need to be focusing on all of my strengths to get closer to each of my goals every single day. Gary Vaynerchuk, Dwayne Johnson, Elon Musk & Richard Branson. They’re the four people who inspired me to start this dream — this vision. And I’m the person who’s going to make it all a reality. Shoutout to the kids in high school who said I’d never make it — shoutout to all the parents & teachers who laughed at me for having such big dreams. I achieved them then, and I’ll reach them now. I’m not just thinking about the next ten years. I’m thinking about life. 2019 is the best year ever. If you have a dream, a passion, an ambition, it’s achievable if you have the right mindset. And I’m going to help you accomplish whatever it is that you want to do. If you’re a part of my fanbase, my following, my community, I’m going to help you fix your mindset, have a more optimistic attitude, and try to enable you to become more self-aware.

2 Words That Will Change Your Life Forever
Each evening, I say that I am grateful for being able to live my life feeling extremely fulfilled. The impact which those two words have is absolutely incredible. As a society, we have been conditioned to say “thank you” whenever somebody does something meaningful. It has become the accepted norm. But saying that you are grateful for somebody’s actions & kindness tends to leave a much stronger impact.

Why I Wish I Was An Immigrant

How Hard Work Can Impact Your Life
During this episode, Matt dives into how a strong work ethic is absolutely essential to success & why you should be relentless with your ambitions. Despite what some people seem to think, my life is not lazing around on a beach drinking coconut water whilst watching the world go by. I do not want that. I would much rather work on my passion every single day for the rest of my life. The defining factor of success is not where you are born. It is not how wealthy you are. Instead, It is how hard you are willing to work. How much you are willing to overcome whatever adversity you may face in order to fulfill your ambitions. That is my definition of greatness. In order for me to improve the podcast, feel free to leave an honest review on iTunes (or your favorite platform). Have an awesome day!
