Staying Authentic in a World of Noise With Nick Covey

Published

on

“Be Yourself” is the most popular individualist based advice but in the real sense, it is the vaguest adage. We want to stay authentic and want to advise others to be authentic but somewhere we don’t know the real definition of it.  Is it really so easy to be authentic in this noisy world as giving someone a “Be yourself” advice before an interview? With social media, smartphones, T.V, internet and a world of endless information, there are more distractions than ever before. Focusing on our goal is becoming increasingly difficult because of constant advertisements and distractions everywhere. We are living in a world full of noise where our perspective is completely dictated by the crowd. If our mentor, idol, or a person we truly like have a certain opinion, we purposely or unknowingly change our opinion to match theirs. The biggest thing that restricts us from being ourselves is our human nature of being worried about how people think of us. It is extremely difficult to be authentic in this world, but it is not impossible.

 

Today, we have Nick Covey, a visionary, a true-hustler and a person who helps others find and represent their authentic self. He believes that through the relentless pursuit of their passions, anyone can find this authenticity. Here are the top 3 tips for staying authentic and being yourself in this world of noise coming from the man himself.

 

  1. Limit Your Time on Social Media and T.V

 

Humans have a tendency to believe what they see and hear, especially when they come across the same thing multiple times. It’s hard to have a different perspective because we are used to believing what we see and hear. We can’t see it in any other way. That’s all we know. How can you truly understand what you want if your mind is constantly being influenced and distracted by others?

 

We have to get out of this matrix. You can’t really find out who you are and what you want when you are constantly exposed to what’s on social media, the internet, and T.V. It’s good to be educated but it’s not good to blindly believe what you see even if everyone is presenting the same picture in front of you. Nick asserts that limiting your time on media consumption will drastically change your life. Limit your media consumption to 1 hour a day and you will find out that you are more energetic, focused and clear-headed.

 

  1. Spend Alone Time With Yourself

 

You can’t be yourself if you don’t know yourself. The primary goal is to find out who you are and what you want and this can best be done by spending alone time with yourself. He considers mornings to be the ideal time to be alone with your thoughts and to listen to the conversation that’s going on in your head. What are you telling yourself? What are you thinking about? Chances are, the things you are thinking about have nothing to do with you and are just a regurgitation of all the media you’ve been consuming.

 

Meditating, reflecting, and journaling are all great tools to get to know yourself better. Practicing these and including them in your daily routine will drastically change your life.

 

  1. Reconnect With Your Passions

 

The key to being happy, successful, and yourself is to reconnect with and persistently follow your passions. However, it’s easier said than done. But, chasing your passions is not the most difficult part, figuring what you are truly passionate about is. These are the things that excite you and when you are doing them, you don’t think about anything else in the world.

 

Everybody has something different. It could be anything from entrepreneurship to outdoor activities like surfing, skateboarding, etc. Or it could simply be Reading or taking a walk in nature. If you are still confused about what this thing may be to you and want to find your inner passion, you can check this article.

 

Staying authentic doesn’t mean staying static. Your interests may change but it should not change because of anyone else. When you stick to who you really are, your character becomes your fortress. Accept the challenge of staying authentic and you will definitely see a different and better version of yourself. It won’t be so easy, but it is far better than having the regret of living a life that isn’t yours.

Ariella Lorio Widely Recognized As The Done For You Girl Helps Thousands Quit Their Job

Published

on

Giving up the traditional 9 to 5 job is difficult for anyone. Though this kind of day to day grind can be difficult to sustain, it is what tends to make ends meet. Making the decision to drop that in exchange for your dreams is something that many people do not dare to try. 

Ariella Iorio is a widely recognized and successful serial entrepreneur that helps people learn affiliate marketing. She is on a mission to teach people to work from home and fire their bosses instead of going to the office everyday. She abandoned the 9 to 5 in order to achieve happiness in her life. 

“I interned for  Wesley Virgin for two years for free, and he taught me everything I needed to know. He is the King of online marketers.” Ariella recounts.

For Ariella, there was a turning point that led her to change the way she thought about her day to day life. Early on in her college career, Ariella suffered serious injuries after being in a terrible car crash. Though she eventually recovered, the experience fundamentally changed her life. The trauma that she experienced from that period caused her to rethink what she was doing in her life as a college student and whether or not this kind of life was worth it in the end. 

“I was in a terrible car accident in which I broke my back, neck, and arm. It was a terrible experience.”

She moved on from this car accident, but couldn’t help but think there was more to this life. She didn’t want to struggle to make ends meet and worry about paying the rent each month

Back then, the work that she was putting in did not equal the output she was getting in terms of work-life balance and the money she was making. She knew she needed to change something to increase her happiness and believes she manifested her now mentor/business partner Wesley Virgin. Ariella always believed in meditation and visualization and attributes that much to her success.

“I now make 600,000 in four months with affiliate marketing. The company now nets 20k a day.” Ariella explains.

Though she has become incredibly successful now, Ariella had a rough start to her business journey. Her desire to follow her dreams drastically changed her lifestyle. She has experienced failure and difficulties with people supporting her in following her dreams. No one was convinced that she would succeed, not even some members of her own family.

“I was living in the basement for 2 years before becoming successful. I had one failed company with Wesley Virgin before the Done for You Services business that we run now. I also dropped out of college and was kicked out of my house for believing in my dreams and not going the ‘traditional route.’” Ariella states.

Now they both are dominating the industry, but most of all, changing lives. Ariella and Wesley pride themselves on finding the correct system for all of their users. They understand that finding the correct audience for your online business can be difficult, but they are there to help walk their clients through all the stages of the process to ensure success.

“We have a Done for You System that we basically do all the work for them such as give them the offer to promote, the videos, the Facebook target audience, have a coach call them to set up their Facebook campaign and stick with them to hold their hand throughout this process guaranteeing them their first sale online. We have three phases: mindset (our millionaire in training group), execution (the done for you services program), and the mastery program (Facebook and youtube ads).” Ariella says.

Alex Saenz Is A Millionaire At Age 23 Because, Despite His Hardships, He Always Tried To Work Harder And Do More

Published

on

Hardships during our childhood years often have a long and profound impact on our lives. Alex Saenz experienced a childhood full of difficulties and hardship that he was able to overcome and become the person he is today. Instead of letting it get him down, he used it as fuel to achieve his dreams.

“I grew up in west phoenix from very humble beginnings. I lived in a trailer park from the age of 13-18. During the ages of 13-18, my parents divorced and I dealt with a lot of emotional and mental issues such as anxiety, depression, loneliness and abandonment. Having felt all this, I worked my butt off in highschool and graduated with a 4.2 GPA.” Recounts Alex.

With this kind of GPA, Alex had the opportunity to go to plenty of elite colleges. Instead, his interest was piqued by real estate investing. Though he had very little money in his bank account, Alex wanted to achieve his goal of making six or seven figures, so he began his venture into real estate.

“At the time of jumping into real estate, I had less than $500 in his bank account. This was Money I had saved up from working at a grocery store pushing carts where I only made $7.50 an hour from pushing carts. Having no emotional or financial support, I dove into real estate head first by door knocking and putting signs out on street corners. It took me nine months to get my first real estate wholesale deal. During this time, my mom moved to Nevada, which was 18 hours away. I then had to move into my friend’s house and work out of my friend’s little brother’s room, which was spiderman themed. I started to dig deeper and work harder by marketing for real estate deals.” States Alex.

Though these months were difficult for Alex, like before, he pushed through it and finally made his first closing. This first deal changed everything for Alex. He was only 19 and had already closed a sale and quickly began closing other sales. He began to expand his team and hire other agents to help build his business and close more sales.

“Having closed my first real estate deal by January 2016, I took off in real estate. I was 19 when I closed my first real estate deal! In 2016, still at the age of 19, I closed 12 real estate wholesale deals for $120,000 in revenue. Keeping living expenses low, I invested nearly everything back into business. I hired two sales guys to help hunt down more real estate deals, by 2017, the real estate company grew to five total team members!” Exclaims Alex.

Alex has never looked back since beginning his journey. His business took off and he was able to create his real estate business All in Entrepreneurs with his two partners: Carlos Reyes and Sal Shakir. He also has started creating youtube videos in which he shares his life story and ways to help others learn the tricks of the real estate trade.

“In 2017, my company closed 62 deals for $615,000 in revenue with more than 60% profit margins. This was all done at 20 years young. In 2018, being 21, I continued to grow my real estate company and Co-Founded ALL IN ENTREPRENEURS with his partners Carlos Reyes and Sal Shakir. In 2018, Over 100 deals were closed, and it was the first 7 figure year in business and I was only 21. Fast forward to 2020, I have closed over 300+ deals with my 7 figure real estate acquisition firm.” States Alex.

Though Alex has faced numerous challenges, he has worked hard to overcome them and achieve his goals. He has always had a good mindset, which has helped him come as far as he has at such a young age. In the future, Alex hopes to keep expanding his real estate business as well as continue pioneering his new solar power company.

“I am a millionaire now, currently 23 years old, building more companies, earning 6 figures monthly through real estate, and consulting solar and SAS (tech/software) companies. I am most excited to help others overcome poverty, bad programming and helping younger entrepreneurs achieve success at a young age!” Remarks Alex.
