You want a quick smile?
Below is a short, really funny video of a toddler. It will have you chuckling in less than 10 seconds. Promise!
It’s also a powerful visual metaphor for many of us in life.
… and one reason why the Wise Insights community was born.
See if you can guess what it is.
You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know
How did you feel while watching that video?
Didn’t you want to jump into the picture and help the little guy? Help him understand that there is a better way? “Son, there is a little trick to keep you from continually losing the ball… and preventing progress.”
True confession: For many years, I was like that little guy.
No, I didn’t wear an adult diaper, thank you very much.
I diligently worked hard to make progress on goals… but I never seemed to get ahead. To mix the metaphor, I was straining to get up the long hill, but the scenery never changed. I was still in the same place.
And I didn’t know why!
Can you relate to that frustration? That sense of futility?
I know many have or are experiencing this because I have talked to so many people and felt their frustration and weariness.
The Ah-ha! Moment
Then something really surprising and important happened.
First, I began to learn that hard work and even persistence weren’t enough… at least for me (and certainly for the toddler above).
Second, I learned about some unused resources that when combined with the above could be a difference maker.
These unused (or underutilized) resources were like maps that showed me better ways to get where I wanted to go… maps that had been verified by the careful study of countless lives.
Why use the trial and error method when you can know for sure the right way to go?
I began a quest to find and learn about various methods, techniques, and perspectives proven by scientific research and time-tested wisdom to make a difference in your results.
- How to make better decisions (better decisions = better life)
- How to understand and overcome the hidden influences pulling me off course
- How to be more motivated, even when facing “have-to” tasks
- How to experience more consistent joy in my life by literally rewiring my brain.
- How to reduce stress, have more energy, greater confidence, more fulfillment in life, etc.
- How to have greater success in whatever I put my mind toward.
I found a surprising treasure trove of insights that personally helped me continue making progress… real progress.
Together Everyone Achieves More
I created Wise Insights to share these lessons with fellow achievers (those who are not content with the status quo, but have lofty goals and dreams they were chasing).
I want to help achievers…
- Maximize the outcome of their efforts
- Bypass unnecessary heartaches and frustrations by learning how to avoid the swamps and pits of life. (So many can be avoided!)
- Strengthen their resolve to keep moving forward.
I want to gather a community of like-minded people who are leveraging all available resources to keep moving forward toward their God-given destiny.
People who are courageously (and wisely!) striving toward better things… and refusing to settle for what currently is.
Is that you?
Attraction to Real Solutions
This is one reason the Wise Insights community has grown rapidly (from 70 to 20,000+ people) in two short years.
This is not surprising. Who doesn’t want proven techniques that can help them make progress on their quest?
There is one other ingredient in the recipe of our growth: honesty and realism.
Attraction to Real Honesty
Let’s face it. Moving up the mountain is hard work. It can wear you down, demoralize you and make you want to quit.
I know I have.
This is the reason I am sooo turned off by those websites that overpromise the results of their solutions… and make it sound like success is an easy 1-2-3 if you spend $497 to buy their “system.”
Pure, unadulterated hogwash. (Insert your own bad word here)
That’s why you won’t find any magic pills here. No elevator that takes you straight to the top.
You will never hear overhyped, “this is a game-changer!” “Do this and your results will explode!”
The Honest Truth
Success takes work… even if you use EVERY great technique out there.
You will get weary. You will question whether it is worth the effort.
But you will keep going… because your situation HAS TO change.
The honesty of knowing we are all facing the same thing (and that it is hard sometimes), strengthens me to keep going.
