Top inspirational and Motivational Sites

Where do you get your motivation from, your inspiration from, the drive to keep going to achieve your goals, to even know that your goals are possible. With so many fraudulent so called experts out there who really are just trying to push there affiliate links onto you where do you start? Whose email lists do you join for genuine help instead of just a regular email of buy this it will change your life. Below I’m going to share with you my top sites/podcasts that I listen to for online guidance to help build my online presence covering this site, the next projects in the background and our android apps.

For me the number site I get confidence in the fact that I can succeed online is Smart Passive Income Pat Flynn and his team are great that let you know that anything is possible online and then set out to provide you with the tools and proof that it can be done. That other big draw card for me about SPI and Pat is the fact that although he emphasises hard work is required he isn’t telling you on his site or podcasts to not sleep and work through the night or miss out on time with the family. In fact Pat is about the opposite family time is important to him he is always letting us know little things he is doing to keep himself healthy so for me this makes SPI and Ask Pat even more valuable resources to me. If you have not heard Pat’s podcasts I highly recommend them. How Transparent Pat is with everything he tells you is really comforting at know point do you feel like you are being pushed in one direction or hustled like you can feel from some of the other helpful entrepreneurs out there, Pats income reports show you both how much you can make but also how much he actually spends each month to make that kind of money.

Now to go one from 1 extreme to the other, another great example for me that anything is possible is Dude Perfect. These guys show you that with hard work anything is possible and that you can make money and have a whole heap of fun doing it. The reach and the variety of audience these guys have is phenomenal check out some of the quotes on there press page  to see what I mean. The Dude Perfect You tube channel is incredible the hours of practice and filming that must put into each video would be insane. Dude Perfect have grown on there success to the point where they have there own merch line, can you imagine the feeling these guys would have gotten the first time they saw a fan wearing there clothes. I would love to here about all of the behind the scenes stuff that goes on the planning the failures potentially even injuries from some of the stunts they do. Maybe Pat Flynn could interview them for SPI… Check out the first Dude Perfect video below to see how far they have come

Another podcast that I like to listen to is the daily Marketing School Podcast with Neil Patel and Eric Siu, The thing I like about this is hearing the different opinions or preferred methods of both guys. The topics covered and advice given varies from whats need for beginners to information that will even benefit a long term internet entrepreneur. There is a whole heap of great information is short spaces of time and I mean who cant find 5 minutes each day to learn and develop themselves.

As mentioned above I stay away from the so called guru’s who tell you to work through the night, that whilst you are sleeping other people are making money. I don’t see the point in working hard to make a living if my health is going to suffer potentially for the long term and a result I’m not able to benefit from it later. The next thing many of these so called guru’s tell you is concentrate on work and there will be time for family later when you can kick back and relax when the money has come in. What they don’t tell you is that if you push people away they may not be there when you are ready for them so keep that in mind. If you don’t have the people around you that matter will the success be worth it, will it be as sweet celebrating by yourself.

Anyway check out the above mentioned sites they have been a big driving help for me Pat Flynn also has some really great guests that he interviews in his SPI Podcast many of them are a wealth of knowledge and inspiration.

At some point in the future once our apps are up and running nicely and we this site ticking along well I would love to setup a podcast and I so I am sure that I will be following Pats Advice on this

Let me know your points of online inspiration and motivation in the comments below

Cheers

Video of the week

We have decided to introduce a new weekly post to give you all a bit more of a background about the type of stuff we like/enjoy. It will be a weekly post with a YouTube video of something we have found during the week.  In some cases it could be something that the Mates Madness team could attempt in the future or a video either Matt or myself have found interesting.

For us Dude Perfect (the creators of our inaugural video of the week) is  one of the directions we would love to take Mates Madness in the future, I mean its a group of guys (mates) having mad fun doing stuff they clearly enjoy One of the reasons we created this site was for us to get out with our mates more, to encourage everyone else to spend more time with there mates and just for people to know they are not alone there are people out there like us who want to give guidance, confidence and motivation that we can all succeed.

The video I have chosen for this week is from Dude Perfect it is there most recent post which is a battle video they chose to make it a giant battle instead of a normal battle video. You can see what my favourite battle shot is which is under the video.

My favourite battle shot would have to be the car shot with them in the back of a pickup and trying to throw the giant dart at the giant dart board they had make.

If you have enjoyed this post I would like to hear the feedback and maybe you could recommend a video I could watch or a video with some challenges that you would like to see Matt and I attempt maybe even with other local Mates Madness fans and content creators involved in.

Until next time
