You will regret these choices in 10 years

Any of those choices, or a combination of them, would be a worthy way to spend that month. Your first e-book, article, song, podcast, freelancer work or creative work never will not be satisfying and perfect, and it’s okay. Failing to try “Try and fail, but don’t fail to try.” Whatever you do, don’t fail to try. If you take steps to make even the smallest progress, you will position yourself for lasting success without regret.

You will regret these choices in 10 years

You could create something. Make a dent. You could leave a legacy by creating art, making people’s lives better, or solving a global problem in your own small way. Any of those choices, or a combination of them, would be a worthy way to spend that month. Each moment is limited, fleeting, precious. With the same mindset about time, live your life to the fullest, right now! It’s a choice you alone can make to avoid these regrets in the future. Waiting for a perfect time “Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” —Mark Victor Hansen There is never a perfect time for you to take action. There is never a perfect time for you to launch that project, to spend time with your family, to write a book, change your habit, or embrace a new habit. Once you acknowledge this, you will get a lot more meaningful work done everyday. I’m too tired. I don’t have the time. I am not capable. Someone else will do it. It’s too late now. Now is not the right time. I am not talented. I am not ready. I’m too scared. Nobody will help me. What if I fail. I don’t feel motivated. I’d rather do nothing. I don’t have the money..yet!

It’s easy to come up with excuses and justify not getting started. The longer you fill your head with rationalizations and empty excuses, the less time you have to take action. It’s easy to say, “I will start when I have more experience, money, time and resources”. By this time next year, you will have a lot more excuses. It’s a cycle. And once you get caught in the loop, it, can be difficult to break free and do something meaningful you care about. The self-criticism and self-doubt will always be present, and the only solution is to just act in spite of them. Your first e-book, article, song, podcast, freelancer work or creative work never will not be satisfying and perfect, and it’s okay. But it pays to start anyway. In ten years, you will be glad you tried. There will always be a reason why it can’t be done. People constantly explain away why they couldn’t, shouldn’t, didn’t, or simply wouldn’t do something. When you make excuses, you are simply saying, “I’m not in control.” But guess what — you are the only person who is fully in control of your actions and decisions in the world. Making excuses robs you of your personal power. People make excuses because of the fear of the unknown. Others are just afraid of change, rejection and embarrassment. Fear locks you in your comfort zone. And nothing magical or remarkable happens in your safe zone. You can stop making excuses if you learn how to eliminate all traces of fear from your life. The next time you experience a setback, don’t make an excuse. See it as a challenge, learn from it and move on. Excuses are distractions, and they reduce your confidence and self-belief. You don’t want that — especially when you still have a lot to show the world. Waiting to be picked “What pick yourself means is that it’s never been easier to decide to be responsible for your own work, for your own agenda, for the change you make in the world. To have a chance to matter. Not to be finished right now, but starting now. Pick yourself means we should stop waiting and whining and stalling. The outcome is still in doubt, but it’s clear that waiting just doesn’t pay.” — Seth Godin Today, there are more ways than ever to pick yourself and show your work. Far easier to have someone notice your creative work. And if you’re driven and focused, you may discover that the market loves what you do. That people come back for more of what you have to share or say. That’s how you build public reputation. A good or even great one. You can become the best in the world at something that people value. You may not be able to monetise from it immediately, but showing up everyday makes the biggest difference. ou have everything you need to make an impact in the world. You don’t even have to start your own business. What you need is something you can you can emotionally and deeply connect with. Don’t think too far into the future. Use what you have right now at where you are and witness the magic of creative work. If you’re thinking about it too much, chances are you’re killing it.

Whatever you choose to do, there are resources out there that can help you achieve your goals in simple steps. It doesn’t have to be anything hard. You can start small and scale or you can even choose to be small but consistent. Choose to be your authentic self. Let go of who you think you should be in the future and be yourself now. You are the only one who can push yourself a little further to start, create, share or publish. Stop waiting to be picked! Choose yourself! Living someone else’s dream “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” —Steve Jobs The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are; the second greatest is being happy with what you find and making the most of it. The decision to stay true to your own goals and dreams is a life-changer. Make time to pursue your passion project, no matter how busy you are. If you have always wanted to be a writer, and get a book published. Self-publish. Because you can. Amazon makes insanely easy to upload a manuscript, design a cover and hit publish. It’s that easy. You don’t have to wait to be chosen. You can choose yourself. You don’t need permission to get your ideas to the right audience.

“I don’t have time to write” is not an excuse. The time before you go to bed is golden, as it exists every single day, and it’s usually completely yours to schedule. What do you want to do with this time? You can pursue your life’s work. With a full-time job, and maybe a family, there won’t be a perfect time, ever. You have to practically make those hours. Set aside a block of time to do what you love, cut out other stuff from your life that take up your time, and don’t let anything interfere with that passion project. Imagine what you can achieve in ten years, if you consistently do something about your dream. You don’t even have to spend hours on it. It can be minutes every day. Small actions compounds. Have the courage to follow your calling! Failing to try “Try and fail, but don’t fail to try.” ―John Quincy Adams The biggest reason people fail at creating habits, changing their lives, pursuing their goals or simply taking action is that they can’t find the motivation to start. The problem is, you are comfortable with what you’re doing (current routine), and the new habit you actually need to be better is less comfortable (it’s too hard). You are clinging to the comfortable. It’s so easy to be enticed by a stable salary, a solid routine and a comfortable life, but at what expense? “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” Wayne Gretzky could not have said that any better. You can only make progress if you take a step. Overcoming the fear of failing is the first step towards success. Start confronting your fears today. And take even the most basic step towards what you have to do.

Remember the dream you were too scared to chase? It’s still not too late to give it a try. Never miss an opportunity to try. Tony Robbins once said “No matter how many mistakes you make, or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.” Slow progress is better than no action at all. You can only change if you make an attempt to actually do something. Whatever you do, don’t fail to try. To make it easier to get started to achieve anything, focus on the smallest thing — just getting started. You don’t have to invest an hour — just start. Commit ten minutes and improve with time. That’s so easy it’s hard to say no. If you take steps to make even the smallest progress, you will position yourself for lasting success without regret. Giving up too soon “Don’t quit. Never give up trying to build the world you can see, even if others can’t see it. Listen to your drum and your drum only. It’s the one that makes the sweetest sound.” —Simon Sinek If you have ever failed in the past but never gave up, you are stronger than you think. If you have failed recently and are considering giving up, don’t. The obstacle is definitely the way. There will always be a way out. You just haven’t found it yet. Keep on trying. Find out why and how you got stuck, and dig yourself out of the temporary setback. Unfortunately, most people refuse to do something about their failures. In the end, they give up on their dreams and stop working on projects that matter to them and continue to wallow in discontent. Everyone fears to fail, experiencing it is inevitable, but it’s your response to it that makes all the difference. Don’t get stuck. You are not your failure. These are a few of the many habits that could guarantee your failure — and what you can do about them. How persistent are you about pursuing your dreams and goals in life? One of the most important secrets of success is learning to conquer your doubts. Most of us give up on our curiosity too soon. Every successful person you know today has a perseverance story to share.

Here’s how much money you should have saved at every age

When it comes to savings, Americans are falling short. In fact, about half of US families have zero retirement account savings. “Particularly the younger generation likes to think, ‘I’ll save more when I’m making more.’ But whether you’re making $50,000 a year or $200,000 a year, we all have challenges saving,” says Kimmie Greene, money expert at Intuit and spokeswoman for Mint.com. “Because oftentimes what happens is, when people make more,” she says, “they end up spending more.”

Here's how much money you should have saved at every age

When it comes to savings, Americans are falling short. Nearly 70% of adults have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts.

Retirement funds are looking equally bleak. In fact, about half of US families have zero retirement account savings.

“Particularly the younger generation likes to think, ‘I’ll save more when I’m making more.’ But whether you’re making $50,000 a year or $200,000 a year, we all have challenges saving,” says Kimmie Greene, money expert at Intuit and spokeswoman for Mint.com.

Billionaire Elon Musk credits his success to these 8 books

On Sunday, Elon Musk’s SpaceX made history, successfully completing the first commercial rocket launch from the NASA launch pad that also sent astronauts to the moon.

The win comes after multiple failures for the SpaceX and Tesla CEO, who wants to change the way people travel and send humans to Mars.

Since his childhood, books have played a crucial role in fueling Musk’s ambitions. It’s said that he read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica at age nine and would pore through science fiction novels for more than 10 hours a day.

When asked how he learned about rockets, Musk reportedly said, “I read books.” His voracious reading habit was essential to launching his history-making career.

Here are eight books that shaped the revolutionary entrepreneur:

If you’re over 55, take this job and love it

Perhaps the best time to change up your career is when you’re near its end. Close to one in five individuals aged 65 and over continues to punch the clock every day, according to the Pew Research Center. Meanwhile, more than half of Americans ages 50 to 64 are working and not retired, according to data from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Indeed, older employees may continue working because they need to strengthen their finances. But 9-to-5 doesn’t have to be a grin

Indeed, older employees may continue working because they need to strengthen their finances.

But 9-to-5 doesn’t have to be a grind — if you plan for it, said Kerry Hannon, author of “Getting the Job You Want After 50 for Dummies.”

“If there’s a kind of work that you want to move toward when you retire,” she said, “it’s important to give yourself time to try things out, get the skills and do the job first to see if it’s something that will catch you on fire.”

Lawyers could be the next profession to be replaced by computers

Leib’s Chicago-based company offers eDiscovery, an AI platform that searches documents for information relevant to lawsuits and other litigation. Leib also pointed out that computers “don’t get tired, they don’t get hungry, they don’t sleep in.” The big international law firm Reed Smith recently put that question to the test with RAVN ACE, the AI platform from RAVN Systems. “We took a deal that we’d already done, which we’d done manually,” said Lucy Dillon, chief knowledge officer of Reed Smith.

Lawyers could be the next profession to be replaced by computers

One question raised by the introduction of AI legal platforms is how well they do their jobs compared to a flesh-and-blood lawyer, who has years of experience under her belt.

Will the machine miss things that a good lawyer with a lot of experience would otherwise catch? Proponents don’t think so.

“That’s an argument that been refuted quite a bit,” said Jay Leib, founder and managing member of NexLP. Leib’s Chicago-based company offers eDiscovery, an AI platform that searches documents for information relevant to lawsuits and other litigation.

“Can you miss anything? Sure,” Leib said of AI legal tools.

“But since 1985, we’ve known that human beings are not very good at keyword searches,” he said. “There’s this fallacy that human beings looking at documents is the gold standard. Not true. They’re missing things.”

He also said the explosion in the amount of electronic data generated today makes it hard for human workers to keep up.

“There’s just so much more data now that you need these technologies to boil the ocean for you” and find relevant material, Leib said.

Leib said NexLP is “not just looking at the text” of a document or email. “It’s looking at the tone of the conversation, who sent it,” to see if the item should be flagged for review in litigation, he said.

Leib also pointed out that computers “don’t get tired, they don’t get hungry, they don’t sleep in.”

“All of the things that are biological problems that can happen to a human being can’t happen to computers.”

The big international law firm Reed Smith recently put that question to the test with RAVN ACE, the AI platform from RAVN Systems. Reed Smith had RAVN conduct a review of hundreds of pages of documents.

“We took a deal that we’d already done, which we’d done manually,” said Lucy Dillon, chief knowledge officer of Reed Smith. “And we put it through the RAVN system to see how it compared. And it compared very favorably.”

Dillon said the RAVN platform “didn’t always get it right” when asked to identify and pull out certain items in contracts. But lawyers were able to add information to their queries and improve their results.

Plus, the platform “picked up some things that we had missed” when humans did their first review of the documents, she said. “The system had high levels of accuracy. And it was a great tool to use.”

And the RAVN was faster than its human counterparts. Much faster.

“We’re talking minutes versus days,” Dillon said.

Top chart analyst Chris Verrone reveals his No. 1 buy signal, other tips

Technical analyst Chris Verrone joined CNBC’s Mike Santoli for an educational strategy session on how he spots winning investment opportunities using charts.

“We look for examples where securities may be acting differently than the fundamental work might suggest,” he said.

As an example, Verrone points to the divergence that occurred last year between interest rates and financials stocks.

“When something doesn’t go down when it should, the story or the trend may be changing. I thought last summer was a great example. You had bond yields at record lows, but quickly the banks started to act better. That was a sign to us that a group or security was becoming immune to news that should have hurt it. Banks should’ve gone lower with lower yields,” Verrone said.

In this conversation, Verrone first shares his investment approach and then he uses some of his favorite charts to explain how investors can use technical analysis to their advantage.

Verrone is head of technical analysis at Strategas Research Partners, an independent institutional brokerage firm. He’s been ranked among the top technical analysts on Wall Street in the annual All-America Research Survey by Institutional Investor Magazine.

Wells Fargo strategist Wren says market to stall on DC gridlock, but this strategy will still work

Wells Fargo strategist Wren says market to stall on DC gridlock, but this strategy will still work

Overall equity returns this year could stall in the months ahead as investors temper their enthusiasm around the speed of economic reform promised by President Donald Trump, which is likely to take time, according to Scott Wren.

“I think the new administration will have very little to do with what happens in the economy in 2017. It’s more of a 2018, 2019, 2020 story. And that’s what we’re trying to talk to our clients about,” said the senior global equity strategist for Wells Fargo Investment Institute.

“Many of them, those at least that were enthused with the result of the election, keep thinking, ‘4 percent growth, 5 percent growth,’ they keep hearing these big numbers. And we’re telling them that that’s not going to happen. This is going to be a modest growth, modest inflation year,” he added.

Wells Fargo Investment Institute serves clients of the company’s wealth and investment management division, which has $1.7 trillion in assets.

In this exclusive strategy session, Wren sits down with CNBC’s Mike Santoli to explain how the firm is advising clients to beat subpar market returns and position themselves for growth this year.

Some of the topics covered include:

The market dynamics that could derail the rally.

Whether investors should look for growth overseas.

His favorite investment ideas for 2017.

The one mistake retail investors have made since 2009.

Investing columnist Jason Zweig on the big advantage small investors have over the pros

Jason Zweig, a best-selling author and investing columnist for The Wall Street Journal, sat down with CNBC’s Mike Santoli for an in-depth discussion on the psychology of investing, the traits of successful investors and why the average investor is actually better off than the pros.

“If you’re an individual investor, you have a massive advantage over professional investors, which is nobody’s looking over your shoulder, except maybe your spouse or your significant other or your partner,” Zweig said.

“And that cripples professional investors. And you don’t have that cinder block tied to your ankles with a steel chain. You can judge your success by your own standards. And you can set your own time horizon. And I constantly urge people, think in terms of decades or generations rather than days or weeks or months or years,” he added.

Zweig is the author of “The Devil’s Financial Dictionary,” among other books, and edited the revised edition of Benjamin Graham’s “The Intelligent Investor,” the classic text that Warren Buffett has described as “by far the best book about investing ever written.”

In this exclusive interview, Zweig outlines the driving forces behind decision-making when it comes to money and investing and also discusses:

Why smart people “turn stupid” when money is involved

How investors can overcome counterproductive psychological quirks

The future of active vs. passive investing

Ben Graham’s theories on value investing and whether they are still relevant

Veteran Wall Street strategist Stovall says market close to overvalued, but certain stocks are still cheap

Sam Stovall, a veteran Wall Street strategist known for his study of market patterns, sat down with CNBC’s Mike Santoli for an in-depth interview on the various principles he uses to predict market returns and evaluate stocks.

Stovall explains why he believes the should be trading at around 2,340, or only about 2 percent higher from here.

“The reason we haven’t stumbled with a P/E so high at this point is, we’ve had inflation in the low 2 percent area. So as a result, we can stand higher valuations when inflation itself is lower,” he said.

In this exclusive conversation, Stovall, who first joined Standard & Poor’s in 1989 and now serves as chief investment strategist at CFRA, defends his market-timing methods against the passive investing onslaught.

“The reason why history works is because one element has been consistent throughout the beginning of time and that is human reaction,” Stovall said.

Other topics include:

His ‘Rule of 20’ method for evaluating stocks.

The best way to determine sector allocations.

Whether emerging markets could outperform developed markets this year.

Active versus passive investing and how to choose a management style.

The various ways retail investors can stay ahead of the curve by using history as a guide.
