Robert’s Friday Roundup – September 24, 2021

Hello Everyone!

Friday Roundup – September 24, 2021

Side Hustles

Pallas Pens – $300 in sales!
Devon Wayt (my business partner and co-founder of Pallas Pens) and I are super excited to have sold $300 of Pallas Pens in the first week!  Woo Hoo!  Feedback continues to be exceptional.

Social media is our main marketing engine.  We are in flight building our marketing strategy and YouTube, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Instagram are the main platforms.

Money Mastery Course – The Self-Worth Mastermind Series is in its second week and we really dug into the tactics of organizing bank accounts and how to create pathways for money flow.  The cohort is exceptionally transparent – meaning they are getting real about their finances and demonstrating exceptional courage.

Daily Videos – Every day I post a new one-minute video.  Topics range from simple suggestions to the deep, philosophical ideals I ponder throughout the day.  All are rooted in the premise that higher self-worth is the basis of all advancement and the core of a great life.   Here are the social links:

Sleep, Meditation, and Mental Health
Lots of crazy-ass dreams.  Woke up one night at 2 am and could not get back to sleep.  Was able to get an hour before the day started, but wow!

I am practicing my mediation every day, however, this week has been a fight with my phone.  I pick it up and look at an app and the next thing you know, I’m looped into bullshit I don’t care about and meditation is much more difficult.  The commitment is to the practice, and that means focusing on the commitment, not my phone!  Will do better.

Eating and Drinking
Week 6 of intermittent fasting – lost 10 pounds and feeling good.  The hunger urges are amazing to witness.  The physical addiction to sugar and starch (potatoes, french fries, etc) simply overtakes me and I literally must stop what I am doing, breathe, and wait for it to pass.

I wish this was not the case.  However, there is a part of my psyche that does not want me to succeed – to stay stuck in a body I do not like.

My experience tells me that I need to make this a 90-day routine, practiced every day until my subconscious knows it is the new normal.  After 90-days, it should let up a bit.

Sayings I Heard This Week
“Doubt or unbelief is as certain to start a movement away from you as faith and purpose are to start one toward you.” – Wallace Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich.

“I must be willing to be uncomfortable, it is the price of success.” – Unknown

“I am no longer a victim of my thinking.” – Robert Christiansen

Social and Feedback
Please, send feedback to my Twitter account @robertmotive, check out this week’s one-minute videos on Instagram and TikTok, and let me know what you think about the leadership posts on LinkedIn.

All the best, Robert
