3 Inspiring Writers Who Will Make You Laugh, Become Smarter, and More Emotionally Intelligent

3 Inspiring Writers Who Will Make You Laugh, Become Smarter, and More Emotionally Intelligent

Some people are blessed with a gift that allows them to engage and influence the masses to become better people. That gift is writing.

Anyone can write words. However, there are only a small group of writers who can pair words together that will inspire readers and have them returning for more.

Do you know of such a writer? You probably have a favorite or two- although, many people relate better to writers who bear a close resemblance to themselves. Here are three inspiring writers that will make you smarter, more emotionally intelligent, and bring more laughter to your life.

1. Kimanzi Constable

Kimanzi Constable is a contributing writer for Entrepreneur and The Huffington Post. He is also the bestselling author of Are You Living Or Existing? He always had a love for writing- although, it took some time for him to embrace it and create a living from it.

He dropped out of high school and was homeless for a period. He caught a few breaks but his challenges got the best of him. After years of mismanaging his life, he was 170 pounds overweight and $180,000 in debt. Every part of his life was falling apart.

It was at that time when he rediscovered his love for writing. He published his first book, Tales of The Everyday Working Man. With the lackluster sales of his book, he soon realized that he needed to learn much more about publishing. A year and a half later, he released his second book, Are You Living Or Existing?, which was much more successful.

To this day, Kimanzi has sold over 100,000 books. He teaches writers by explaining specific strategies. He has said, “There’s a wealth of general teachings that sound great in theory but have no practical application. My goal is to always get specific and give the audience what can help them.”

He recognizes that being a successful entrepreneur is no easy feat. In many of his articles, he teaches his readers how to control their emotions, instead of letting their emotions control them.

Moreover, Kimanzi likes to encourage his readers to have fun with it. Many of his readers enjoys his rants about his loyalty to Taylor Swift. Kimanzi is an example of what everyone should do as they travel the road to success.

What is that?

… Be yourself!

2. Isabelle Rizo

Isabelle Rizo is the owner of the international boutique marketing company, The BellaVie. Her love for educating others abroad led to her to also co-found the non-profit organization, The Global Education Partnership.

As a female nomad, Isabelle works with brands and entrepreneurs to discover their soul purpose in order to authentically market themselves with efficiency and effectiveness.

She infuses her work with neuroscience and graphics to get her readers to think differently and take action. In her periscopes and blog posts, she shares with her audience about the fear of success, as well as the fear of failure.

Isabelle is not afraid to be vulnerable in front of her audience. She is a strong advocate of being authentic. No one likes a faker. Isabelle will inspire you to find yourself and discover your core essence, in order to build a passion-based business.

3. Kenneth Eade

Kenneth Eade is an award-winning filmmaker and bestselling author of six novels that impart knowledge on important issues like GMOs, police brutality, and cyber stalking. His work has been featured on The Huffington Post.

He practiced law for 30 years before becoming an author. His novels are unique because they are based on solid research and current events that affect our lives. They are entertaining, but also educate readers about their civil liberties. Kenneth always creates a cast of interesting and unique characters that you grow to like as they interact with each other in a politically humorous way.

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

1. Exercise Daily

It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

3. Acknowledge Your Limits

Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

The basic nutritional advice includes:

  • Eat unprocessed foods
  • Eat more veggies
  • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
  • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

    5. Watch Out for Travel

    Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

    This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

    If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

    6. Start Slow

    Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

    If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

    7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

    Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

    My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

    If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

    I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

    Final Thoughts

    Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

    Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
