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.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
