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.

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

10 Reasons Why New Year’s Resolutions Fail

A new year beautifully symbolizes a new chapter opening in the book that is your life. But while so many people like you aspire to achieve ambitious goals, only 12% of you will ever experience the taste of victory. Sound bad? It is. 156 million people (that’s 156,000,000) will probably give up on their resolution before you can say “confetti.” Keep on reading to learn why New Year’s resolutions fail (and how to succeed).

Note: Since losing weight is the most common New Year’s resolution, I chose to focus on weight loss (but these principles can be applied to just about any goal you think of — make it work for you!).

1. You’re treating a marathon like a sprint.

Slow and steady habit change might not be sexy, but it’s a lot more effective than the “I want it ALL and I want it NOW!” mentality. Small changes stick better because they aren’t intimidating (if you do it right, you’ll barely even notice them!).

If you have a lot of bad habits today, the last thing you need to do is remodel your entire life overnight. Want to lose weight? Stop it with the crash diets and excessive exercise plans. Instead of following a super restrictive plan that bans anything fun, add one positive habit per week. For example, you could start with something easy like drinking more water during your first week. The following week, you could move on to eating 3 fruits and veggies every day. And the next week, you could aim to eat a fistful of protein at every meal.

2. You put the cart before the horse.

“Supplementing” a crappy diet is stupid, so don’t even think about it. Focus on the actions that produce the overwhelming amount of results. If it’s not important, don’t worry about it.

3. You don’t believe in yourself.

A failure to act can cripple you before you leave the starting line. If you’ve tried (and failed) to set a New Year’s resolution (or several) in the past, I know it might be hard to believe in yourself. Doubt is a nagging voice in your head that will resist personal growth with every ounce of its being. The only way to defeat doubt is to believe in yourself. Who cares if you’ve failed a time or two? This year, you can try again (but better this time).

4. Too much thinking, not enough doing.

The best self-help book in the world can’t save you if you fail to take action. Yes, seek inspiration and knowledge, but only as much as you can realistically apply to your life. If you can put just one thing you learn from every book or article you read into practice, you’ll be on the fast track to success.

5. You’re in too much of a hurry.

If it was quick-and-easy, everybody would do it, so it’s in your best interest to exercise your patience muscles.

6. You don’t enjoy the process.

Is it any wonder people struggle with their weight when they see eating as a chore and exercise as a dreadful bore? The best fitness plan is one that causes the least interruption to your daily life. The goal isn’t to add stress to your life, but rather to remove it.

The best of us couldn’t bring ourselves to do something we hate consistently, so make getting in shape fun, however you’ve gotta do it. That could be participating in a sport you love, exercising with a good friend or two, joining a group exercise class so you can meet new people, or giving yourself one “free day” per week where you forget about your training plan and exercise in any way you please.

7. You’re trying too hard.

Unless you want to experience some nasty cravings, don’t deprive your body of pleasure. The more you tell yourself you can’t have a food, the more you’re going to want it. As long as you’re making positive choices 80-90% of the time, don’t sweat the occasional indulgence.

8. You don’t track your progress.

Keeping a written record of your training progress will help you sustain an “I CAN do this” attitude. All you need is a notebook and a pen. For every workout, record what exercises you do, the number of repetitions performed, and how much weight you used if applicable. Your goal? Do better next time. Improving your best performance on a regular basis offers positive feedback that will encourage you to keep going.

9. You have no social support.

It can be hard to stay motivated when you feel alone. The good news? You’re not alone: far from it. Post a status on Facebook asking your friends if anybody would like to be your gym or accountability buddy. If you know a co-worker who shares your goal, try to coordinate your lunch time and go out together so you’ll be more likely to make positive decisions. Join a support group of like-minded folks on Facebook, LinkedIn, or elsewhere on the internet. Strength in numbers is powerful, so use it to your advantage.

10. You know your what but not your why.

The biggest reason why most New Year’s resolutions fail: you know what you want but you not why you want it.

Yes: you want to get fit, lose weight, or be healthy… but why is your goal important to you? For example:

Do you want to be fit so you can be a positive example that your children can admire and look up to?

Do you want to lose fat so you’ll feel more confident and sexy in your body than ever before?

Do you want to be healthy so you’ll have increased clarity, energy, and focus that would carry over into every single aspect of your life?

Whether you’re getting in shape because you want to live longer, be a good example, boost your energy, feel confident, have an excuse to buy hot new clothes, or increase your likelihood of getting laid (hey, I’m not here to judge) is up to you. Forget about any preconceived notions and be true to yourself.

  • The more specific you can make your goal,
  • The more vivid it will be in your imagination,
  • The more encouraged you’ll be,
  • The more likely it is you will succeed (because yes, you CAN do this!).

I hope this guide to why New Year’s resolutions fail helps you achieve your goals this year. If you found this helpful, please pass it along to some friends so they can be successful just like you. What do you hope to accomplish next year?
