Imagine if making a difference was more valued than likes

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

#ImagineIf more people stopped seeking a constant stream of #likes & #shares and instead started working for the far more significant & much more uncommon, “#Thanks I really needed that today.”

Making a positive difference in 1 person’s life is far more fulfilling than 1k likes.

Imagine a better education system

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

#ImagineIf #teachers were regarded with the same high degree of #respect (& compensated accordingly) as other higher-paying professions that often have less of a long-term impact as teachers have the potential to.

#ImagineIf after money no longer made any significant difference in #billionaire’s lives, they put their energy towards bettering humanity instead of simply increasing their wealth. See, for example, @elonmusk

Struggling with New Year’s resolutions

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

If you’re starting to struggle with your #NewYearsResolutions it’s probably because you’re trying to initiate too much change at once. This leads to feeling #overwhelmed & quitting. Focus on making progress on 1 goal or 1 part of it & #keepgoing. Add complexity/more goals later.

Don’t let discouragement keep you from reaching your goals

Don’t let discouragement keep you from reaching goals within your grasp. Understand that facing setbacks & being discouraged doesn’t have to lead to quitting. Change your tactics & strategy as needed, but only quit if you know it’s best for you. Otherwise, keep pushing yourself.

Life is good at knocking people down

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Life knocks people down & it’s good at it. And if you get up it will probably knock you down again. #Thatslife, but it’s #nottheend of #yourstory. Always focus on what you can do from where you are. Rest if you must, but then #getup & #pushforward. #Challenges make us #stronger.

Binary thinking is a plague on progress

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

The world is not black & white and issues, advice, and thinking deserve far more consideration & critical thought than just yes/no, agree/disagree, right/wrong. Binary thinking is a plague on progress. Thoughtful, logical discussion, regardless of the topic, should be encouraged.

There is no single recipe for living a fulfilling life

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

What works best for some people doesn’t work for others. There’s no single recipe for living a fulfilling life that works for everyone. Educate & better yourself as best you can & be cautious when considering advice that tries to limit or define you. Your life & limits are yours.

You control what you focus on

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Too many people spend too much time dwelling on the moments that make them feel #weak & not enough time dwelling on the moments that make them feel #strong. Remember, whatever you #focus on grows stronger & you control what that is.

I don’t like pop-ups. But the fact is, they get people’s attention. And here’s the deal, I want your email address. But rather than put a form here that 99.9% of people ignore, I want to provide you with a link that tells you exactly why I want your email address.

I promise it’s not a waste of your time. But if you suspect it is, I get it. (I’ve been tricked before, too).
