In the effort to be a better man, it can be very rewarding to make incremental daily progress. Sometimes, progress does not come as easily. It might take months of trying to better yourself in a humble effort only to realize that one day you have made it. This might be as simple as realizing you’re not as quick to respond with aggression to criticism, or you’re much less likely to fall into indulgence with your dietary habits.
The path every man takes to become better is different, and no two journeys are the same. However, this doesn’t mean people can’t use the same tried and tested advice to get to a positive place in life. After all, people are much more likely to find power in tried and tested wisdom than simply generating all of that themselves.
When you do inevitably reach that peak you’re looking for, it can feel wonderful to relish your time at the top. This often leads to a wonderful feeling of needing to share your advice. There are many self-help gurus out there, but only a percentage of them walk like they talk. If you feel that you do both, then it can be a great idea to share your story, and even develop a business around it. No matter if you’ve kicked an addiction, have finally squatted twice your bodyweight to the ground, or you have written your first novel, you might consider sharing your newly found wisdom through the following means:
- An app. When generating a business idea, one of the easiest ways to offer wisdom is through an app. For example, if you’re teaching someone to meditate thanks to years of practice, you might consider an incremental audible lesson accessible to anyone who is able to plug in their headphones for thirty minutes a day. You can offer this with a subscription model, for example. This can work for dietary advice and tracking, working information and stats tracking, or something as simple as daily motivation. For this reason, hiring the best app developers to work on your offering immediately can help you begin earning money and curating a network of people happy to experience and enjoy what you have to teach.
- YouTube/Twitch. It might seem like a platform for people offering silly content, but both of these websites offer very important creating tools to show your thoughts and describe your wisdom to anyone who wants it. Both offer live streaming capabilities, where you can take questions, offer advice, receive donations and uphold more curated videos. This allows you to be completely personable and one on one with your audience, but does require careful lesson planning such as how a teacher might conduct their work.
- Patreon. If you’re looking to simply offer your information as a sense of goodwill, consider opening a Patreon. This means that the effort in blogging, video creation and podcasting can be supported through crowdfunding, as Patreon allows you the tools to become ‘backed’ by people who genuinely care about what your mission has to say. This is a very natural and organic way to offer your information on the side, without having to worry about monetizing it.
All of these efforts will ensure that you offer something worthwhile, and you may change someone’s life because of it. I wish you the best of luck if you do decide to head down this path.
