#50 - The Harsh Reality of Making Life Decisions

September 11, 2023

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never taken a class on decision-making. My parents never sat me down and taught me how to think deeply about the consequences of my actions. When it comes to making life choices, the only teacher I’ve ever had was life itself. I’ve made decisions, those decisions have had consequences, and then I’ve analyzed those consequences with the hopes that I’ll be able to make even better decisions in the future. But I’m a human being… and naturally, I want to feel a sense of certainty that the decisions I make will lead to the outcomes I desire. — And I’m sure you’re no different. - How do I know if I’m making the right decision? - How do I know if I should be persistent and keep moving toward my goal, or just quit and find something else to do? - How do I know if I’m using my time in the best way possible? These are questions that all of us have asked or will ask ourselves at some point in life. And the harsh reality is that in most cases, the only person who can answer these question for us is the person we see in the mirror every morning. But still, we continue to look to others for guidance, advice, and answers. — And in today’s episode, I’m gonna play a clip of a young lady looking for advice on how to know if she’s on the right path in life. — And the entrepreneur and content creator, Gary Vaynerchuk is going to share a perspective that I believe could help you to find some direction in your life as well.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
