How to Pick Up the Pieces of a Failed Dream

How to Pick Up the Pieces of a Failed Dream We all get knocked down by life. We don't always have control over that. We do have control over what we do about it. We have control over what we do next. What we do next is important. Text of Video Follows: How to Pick Up the Pieces of a Failed Dream [05:39] So, what do you do when your dream fails? Well, I mean, you’ve got a couple of options. You could just forget about it and go back to whatever you were doing before; you can change the dream; or you can analyze your dream and see where you went wrong, learn from your mistakes. So, for me, my dream was to come here, build games and make a living on that. What did I really want out of that? What I really wanted was to be happy and not have a lot of stress in my life. We

My Phone is Full!

My phone is full! Clarification:The article I read did indeed state 1.2 billion apps, the actual number is closer to 1.5 million, and 700,00 for Google Play So reading an article online, it says that most Americans download zero apps every month. And there’s 1.2 billion apps in the App Store, and probably a little slightly less in Google Play, but certainly millions. But 65% of US smartphone users don’t download any new apps; so no new games, no new apps, nothing. So what happens to those of us who try to make our living pushing these games and apps and everything else? There’s got to be a better solution. It’s just flooded. And I’ve tried for more than a year to get some of my apps out there. One of them is only doing anything at all, and the amount that I’m making a day

Dreams, Fears Not Giving Up

Happiness
Dreams and Fears-not giving up Things haven't gone as planned, but that's ok. They rarely do. Sometime you have to re-evaluate if you dreams are worth it. Here are my thoughts. Text of Video follows: Dreams and Fear [05:56] For those of you that don’t know me my name is Will. And for those of you that do know me, you know that I’ve had dreams. And my dream lately, the last one, the last big one anyway, was to move here to rural Thailand and build games and make money off of doing that. Well, the dream hasn’t quite worked out the way I wanted. I did move here, I’m in the middle of rural Thailand at the moment. It’s beautiful, I love it here. And there had been more problems than I had thought that there would be. But some of them are my fault and some of them aren’t my
