For some time now James Altucher is one of my favorite bloggers.

I sometimes go to his site to see if anything new is out even if the RSS reader shows zero. He has a really great book.

Choose Yourself!

The book is about how one era has ended and the new is beginning. That in itself is nothing new. There are others who have noticed the change that is happening.

Here’s the video about the book:

But James gives you the blueprint how to survive the change be happy, make millions, live the dream. You can find the essence of the daily practice here How to be THE LUCKIEST GUY ON THE PLANET in 4 Easy Steps.

If you only want to get the steps then that’s it but the book itself is a fun read and you can read it completely free by asking your money back from James. Here are the details about the deal.

Here’s the slide deck:

Here’s the book description form Amazon:

The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for “security,” everything we thought was “safe,” no longer is: College. Employment. Retirement. Government. It’s all crumbling down. In every part of society, the middlemen are being pushed out of the picture. No longer is someone coming to hire you, to invest in your company, to sign you, to pick you. It’s on you to make the most important decision in your life: Choose Yourself.

New tools and economic forces have emerged to make it possible for individuals to create art, make millions of dollars and change the world without “help.” More and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real inward success (personal happiness and health) and outward success (fulfilling work and wealth).

This book will teach you to do just that. With dozens of case studies, interviews and examples–including the author, investor and entrepreneur James Altucher’s own heartbreaking and inspiring story–Choose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old.

Luck is created by the prepared. ~ James Altucher

No matter who you are, no matter what you do, no matter who your audience is: 30 percent will love it, 30 percent will hate it, and 30 percent won’t care. Stick with the people who love you and don’t spend a single second on the rest. Life will be better that way. ~ James Altucher, Choose Yourself

Seth Godin: How High Will You Fly? [VIDEO]

The Icarus Deception How High Will You Fly Seth Godin


This is a manifesto for you. (PDF) It’s a manifesto for anyone who has been overlooked or brainwashed or seduced into being invisible.

The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?

Seth Godin’s most inspiring book, he challenges readers to find the courage to treat their work as a form of art.

Everyone knows that Icarus’s father made him wings and told him not to fly too close to the sun; he ignored the warning and plunged to his doom. The lesson: Play it safe. Listen to the experts. It was the perfect propaganda for the industrial economy. What boss wouldn’t want employees to believe that obedience and conformity are the keys to success?

But we tend to forget that Icarus was also warned not to fly too low, because seawater would ruin the lift in his wings. Flying too low is even more dangerous than flying too high, because it feels deceptively safe.

The Icarus Deception quote Seth Godin

What’s scarce is trust, connection, and surprise. ~ Seth Godin

Become an artist

The safety zone has moved. Conformity no longer leads to comfort. But the good news is that creativity is scarce and more valuable than ever. So is choosing to do something unpredictable and brave: Make art. Being an artist isn’t a genetic disposition or a specific talent. It’s an attitude we can all adopt. It’s a hunger to seize new ground, make connections, and work without a map. If you do those things you’re an artist, no matter what it says on your business card.

40 Alternatives to CollegeThe bottom line is: the system is broken, the middle class is disappearing, being carved through the middle by a trillion dollars in student loan debt, and everyone is still raising tuition faster than inflation. And 50% of kids with college degrees now are underemployed. And that one statistic that “if you go to college you make a million dollars more” is totally flawed and I explained why using basic Statistics 101 knowledge (explained in detail in this post).
