We reached out to 1 Awesome World, LLC. CEO and founder Dellian Sharp. Mr. Sharp's company provides one on one personal consulting with an impetus on personal growth and development. Helping their clients identify and overcome their Fear Blocks is a point of specialty for Mr. Sharp and his firm. So he kindly helped us put together Four Steps For Overcoming Fear.

Step 1

Understand Fear. Fear is secretly an acronym for False Evidence Appearing Real. Most of our fears aren't real but rather figments of our imagination.

Understanding that our fears aren't grounded in reality gives us the power to take control over our lives. We worry about consequences that are never as bad as they are in our imaginations, and opinions of others that they don't actually hold.

Fear isn't real.

Step 2

Begin the process of working on self-image and self-assurance. Assertion of your personal power comes from recognizing and acknowledging its existence. Building confidence into your self-image and coming to the reality of your true strength is the key to the gateway to higher heights. Be mindful of your inner dialogue, speak to yourself only in positive affirmations. This allows you the vision to see opportunity and success, where previously you would only see despair and failure.

Step 3

Have a firm definition of courage. Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to move forward in-spite of fear.

Feeling feelings of fear will never go away. As a matter of fact those feelings and sensations are how your mind and body are alerted and prepared to make the ideal response. Not letting feelings of fear cripple your movements, but rather using that energy as fuel is the difference between staying stuck in one place, and exponential growth.

Step 4

Understand our enemies.

This becomes day to day warfare with the battlefield being your mind. Your enemies: Worry. Doubt. Fear. Your allies: Faith. Hope. Love.

Being mindful of when WorryDoubtFear pop up and being ready to confront them with FaithHopeLove sets in place the habit of killing off fear before it ever gains a foothold. This means that the battle is won before it has even begun.

Airbnb is a great option while traveling, but you should protect yourself from damage charges from unscrupulous hosts.

Airbnb offers an affordable option for people looking to be more comfortable as they travel.

What Are NFTs?

Art Installation N°1 by Carlos Marcial. Rhett Dashwood / YouTube

If you're keeping tabs on the art and tech worlds, you've probably been hearing whispers about "NFTs" for the past month. Just over the past week they've entered the mainstream lexicon.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey made the news for selling his first ever tweet. The app has been teasing paid subscription models and newsletter-like features, but tweets for sale is "the next frontier."

The 2006 tweet went up for auction as an NFT, and the current bid is $2.5 Million. But what does it mean to own that? Why would anyone want to? And what even is an NFT?

Long gone are the days when the majority of Americans dreamed about owning a home with a white picket fence.

The traditional American Dream may be on its deathbed, but that doesn't mean a core component of the vision can't survive. It simply takes a diverse perspective. People can still believe they can attain their own vision of success in society with hard work, knowledge, and risk-taking. Investing in today's American Dream may literally mean investing money in our modern economy, starting with our infrastructure.

Real estate investing in particular is a lucrative method that can boost income and secure a better financial future for many. There's always risk involved, but the payoffs can far outweigh the uncertainty. Selecting solid financial investments is about confidence and competence. If you're looking for some advice on this kind of investment, here are a few savvy tips for new real estate investors.

Stick To a Specific Strategy or Niche

Real estate is a challenging sphere of the business world, one that requires several key skills: groundwork knowledge, networking, perseverance, and organization. True knowledge of the real estate market will come with time and experience, but it's a smart idea to select one area of the market and stick to it. This is the best way to attain in-depth familiarity with your specific niche.

First, choose a geographical area close by and then a niche strategy within it, such as house flips, rental rehabs, or residential or commercial properties. By doing so, you can become aware of current inner working conditions in the market and you'll have a better idea of how these trends may change in the future.

Be Vigilant About Viable Financing Options

While it takes money to make money, you don't have to use all your own money. A common misconception about real estate investing is that you must be wealthy to start off. This isn't straight fact, however. A majority of people can test the waters of real estate investing without a lot of initial cash in their pocket.

Aside from traditional financing options from banks and institutions, private lending options can be worthy solutions. Hard money lenders are popular, reasonable choices, and they tend to have fewer qualification requirements upfront. However, be sure to strategically choose a hard money lender to find the best possible fit.

Master the Art of Finding Good Deals

There may be hundreds of thousands of available properties for sale on the current market, but the bulk of them will never amount to the final money-making result you desire. Another great tip for new real estate investors is to use good math to estimate profit. Taking risks is part of the process, but you have the ability to analyze properties and use networking sources to find the greatest deal. You can't win every deal, but you can steadily work towards a thriving financial future.
