Do you want to get ahead in life? If so, then there is one key you should have: a knowledge advantage. I learned about this from Mark Cuban through his book How to Win at the Sport of Business. Mark Cuban is the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks and one of the ‘sharks’ on the hit TV series Shark Tank. In the book, he wrote about how he started his business. One thing he emphasized is the importance of having a knowledge advantage. Before starting his business, Cuban had a job selling computer software. There was a problem though: he didn’t know anything about computer software (it was in the early ‘80s). So what did he do? He spent hours a day reading software manuals. As it turned out, not many people read those manuals, so he gained a knowledge advantage that brought him success.

Note: This post is written by Garik Himebaugh Why do so many entrepreneurs have morning routines? From Bill Gates to Tim Ferriss, the presence of morning rituals amongst the ultra-successful, and the apparent lack of them amongst us mortals, probably has you wondering why they do such a crazy thing every day, and if you should follow suit (reluctantly of course).

Note: This post is written by Eddy Baller Dealing with depression as a young adult was tough, especially because I didn’t know that I was feeding it with my own mindset. Every day was the same pattern: wake up, think about things I didn’t like, listen to negative music, read the depressing news, see my negative friends, talk about all of the stuff we hated about life…repeat. “Why am I so depressed?” was a question I asked at times, even though most of the answers were right in my own head. After discovering how my own thinking was aggravating my mental health, I started working on small changes and completely changed my life. Some of these suggestions may help you break the pattern and start seeing things in a new light too.
