Creating Your Reality with a Clever Mindset: Tactical Steps to Overcome Difficulties with Nick Uresin


Too often, we look at difficulties in our lives as setbacks and think we are stuck. Facing headwinds makes us feel that we are fighting an uphill battle. But the most difficult obstacle really is in our own minds. And the only way to get through it is to take action. But, what actions should we take? We start with our mindset because as we will learn from our guest, Nick Uresin, Founder of Argometrix and Host of Amazon Legends Podcast, “Everything we are experiencing is a mindset.” 

However, the inner work is only half the victory, the other half is how we take action. Tune in as Daniel and Nick share tactical steps that can give you positive thoughts, create a much better perspective, come back as a bigger person, and get to the next level. Nick also shares 2 of the most valuable assets that helped him get through when he failed in his venture in a foreign land with nothing to generate income. 

At times, when we experience adversities, we settle with the negative thinking of “being realistic”. True, what we are experiencing is real, and we do not discount that. But we certainly ought to reject the idea that this is our reality now. We create our own reality, and we create it with a passionate heart. Keep holding on, the best days are yet to come! 

“You create your own reality. The reality that is imposed on you is not your reality until you accept it. You have the choice to create your own reality, that's the way you have to live.” -Nick Uresin
