Seth’s Blog: Fear, scarcity and value

The things we fear are probably feared by others, and when we avoid them, we’re doing what others are doing as well.

Have you started Christmas planning yet?

Wait a minute … the Christmas season just ended, right? Why in the world should you be worried about budgeting for Christmas already?

Good question. Let’s dig in a little deeper.

Love It Or Love It Not –

A lot of people love Benjamin Franklin.

Oh, come on. Admit it. You’re probably pretty fond of Benjamin Franklin, too. He’s the guy on the front of the $100 bill, and you’re not going to say you don’t love $100 bills, are you?

If we’re honest, most of us love money. Actually, we love money we don’t have. How else can you explain our addiction to credit cards? Our culture loves money so much that we have television shows dedicated to showing off people’s million-dollar houses and garages full of luxury cars!

Have you ever noticed that people become more of who they are as they get older? Over the years adversity chips away the exterior facade, leaving our true selves exposed.

Dear Evan,

First of all, I love your advice. In fact, it’s because of your advice that I’m in my first serious, long-term relationship. (We’ve been together a year and a half and live together.) Now, however, I’m confused about the state of my relationship.

Many authors have done this in the past few years, including Brendon Burchard, Gary Vaynerchuck and Chris Brogan.

While I haven’t yet done this yet with a book, I have certainly seen the impact of video on building my email newsletter list and booking speaking engagements.

In their weekly closed-door session, the justices voted unanimously to review cases out of Long Beach and Riverside that dealt with the ongoing conflict between California’s voter-approved law allowing the use of medical marijuana and federal laws barring the use or sale of the drug.
