Hey Everyone,

Hope you all had a wonderful week and welcome back to The Pursuit.

Each week, I share the most impactful ideas that help me in my pursuit of better. In business, relationships, health, networking, wealth, happiness, and more. One idea is something I personally learned that week, and the rest are from others who inspire me.

Today, I am excited to dive into a few fantastic topics – why people buy products, getting over the hump as a beginner, living a full life, and taking time to enjoy yourself.

Getting Over Being A Beginner

“Inferiority Complex: I’m not a good writer, so I shouldn’t share my ideas

Feeling of Inferiority: I’m not a good writer, so I’ll get started practicing right now

The choice is yours.”

Mortality As Inspiration

“Memento Mori is a Latin phrase that translates to “remember that you must die.”

A favorite of Stoic philosophy, it is a reminder of the certainty and inescapability of death.

It is not intended to be morbid or dark; rather, to clarify, illuminate, and inspire…

Memento Mori served as a tool to invoke humility in moments of glory.

It can also be a tool for providing clarity.

The Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius famously wrote in his Meditations, “You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think.”

Humans are inclined to hide from death, to push it to the back of our minds.

Marcus Aurelius and other Stoic philosophers taught the opposite.

Bring death to the front of your mind.

Let your mortality serve to clarify your daily motivations.

Let your mortality inspire you.”

Why People Buy Products

“One of my favorite graphics because of how it simplifies such a powerful concept.

People don’t buy products. They buy better versions of themselves.”
