One of the quickest ways to reinvent your image is to change your hairstyle. Most often guys get stuck in a routine with a simple haircut from the local super chain or barber. These $20 haircuts are okay but you won’t stand out and will actually spend around the same amount each month, since you’ll have to get a cut more often.
Finding a good stylist is essential to your style and image. The best way to find one is to get a recommendation from your stylish female friends. As your stylist gets to know you, he or she will be able to recommend different cuts that you might not even have considered.
Salon stylists have a lot more training than your local barber or super chain. A good one will continually improve their craft and attend workshops, trainings and expos. Trends change and they will keep you up-to-date on the latest.
Here are some tips from experience of having horrible hair days (you’ll never see photos of me from the age of 13 – 24 if I can help it!) to consistently being complemented on my hair. Read More
A recent email from a reader:
|Hi Hersh, I stumbled across your Twitter profile and have been following along for a few days now, I’ve also spent some time exploring your website. I really like your view of life, and have been trying to shape my own life in similar ways.I’ve been itching to know what advice you have for maintaining such an active and balanced lifestyle…
Meanwhile, I value the time with my friends, girlfriend, and family. I’m having some difficulties balancing everything, without running myself into the ground. Do you have any strategies/suggestions you can share to help maintain a balanced lifestyle and keep energy levels up?
I look forward to any words of wisdom…

This is actually one of the most common questions I receive… how am I able to accomplish so much without feeling overwhelmed or stressed? For those that don’t know, I’m actively involved with four companies at once, workout daily, practice the martial arts, have a ton of hobbies/interests, socialize, spend time with family and take care of my household.
However, I used to get those same feelings of stress and overwhelm. I would feel drained and so exhausted by the end of the day. Often times this would manifest into physical warning signs from my body – like stress headaches that would get so bad I would have to waste hours trying to sleep them off.
Now I have gotten to a point where I rarely, if ever, feel stressed. Even in the face of major life challenges I am able to deal with them in a clear headed and stress free manner.
Here are the set of 15 principles I use to eliminate feelings of stress and overwhelm from my life: Read More
These are the goal setting techniques I learned early in life that have been instrumental in helping me to develop the passion to live life to the fullest. I was first exposed to goal setting when I was 18 and a friend introduced me to multilevel marketing. “You get two friends and they get two friends and they all get two friends… and we all make money.” While personally I am not really fond of that business model, my experience with MLM companies taught me how to dream big.
Later I really honed my goal setting process from people like Stephen Covey, Anthony Robbins and Napoleon Hill.
Brainstorm your goals
I break my goals down into different categories:
- Personal Development Goals – anything I want to learn or improve.
- Thing Goals – anything I want to do or experience.
- Financial Goals – how much to want to earn (monthly, yearly), contribute, budget, invest, save, pay off debts and loans, put towards a house, retirement, etc.
- Company Goals – individual goals and milestones for my companies, including financial, product development, number of clients, etc.
I normally play some music and just start writing non-stop on anything I can think of in each category. I do each one individually for about 5 minutes each. I don’t limit myself or try to be realistic during this process.
Set a time line when you want to achieve the goal
After I brainstorm each category, I place a time limit when I want to accomplish the goal.
- 1: within one year or less
- 3: 3 years or less
- 5: 5 years or less
- 10: 10 years or less
- 20: 20 years or less
99% of my goals tend to be within the 1-5 year plan currently.
Choose your top one year goals in each category
Next, I decide which are the top 3 or 4 one year goals in each category and write a paragraph next to each goal on why it is an absolute must for me to achieve and what I will lose in life by not following through and going for it. The more detailed you are with your goal and why you must achieve it, the higher the level of drive you will have to take action.
You should now have 10-12 exciting goals! Read More
Music is such a powerful force in our lives – there is a song for virtually every situation and emotion in life: happiness, sadness, determination, anger, power, ambition, and even what if feels like when a guy’s girlfriend cheats steals his truck and runs over his dog.
The music we listen to has a strong impact on our mood and perception. When a person listens to sad heartbreak songs after a breakup he or she can get a sense of empathy, however while it can help with the healing process initially, if the person keeps listening to those songs there can be a danger of depression, despair and hopelessness.
“Music is what feelings sound like”
By selecting the music we listen to consciously, we can enhance the emotions and feelings that will serve us. For example, below is my workout / motivational song playlist. I listen to it when I need to get energized, want to go hard in the gym or just want to get pumped up with more confidence, drive and focus. It really spurs me to take action.
You’ll notice that some songs aren’t actually positive either – that is okay. You can take that raw energy and convert it into something that supports you. Remember negative emotions and fear of loss can propel you to take action towards your goals as well. So use them to your advantage instead of avoiding them all together. All emotions we experience are here to assist us – we just have to make sure we control them and not the other way around.
This playlist changes and will be updated often as I find new songs to add or get tired of older ones. Enjoy! Share what songs motivate you in the comments section.
