Overcoming Burnout  

Let’s face facts; burnout is a pain in the neck. Whenever we experience this, we go through a state of mental and physical exhaustion. And as an individual, this can cost us a lot and reduce our overall output.

To handle stress and burnouts, Nathan shares a couple of things that work for him.

First on the list is meditation. Meditation has been used for thousands of years to help ease stress. It needs repetition and practice, like all good things however the effects can be life changing. 

Another thing Nathan ensures he does is to keep himself healthy mentally by staying away from people who radiate negative energy.

Lastly, listening to music lifts his mood when he’s feeling down. 

Conquering Obstacles 

As humans, we face obstacles daily. Obstacles come in different forms, be it financial, emotional, or physical. But the most important thing to note is that obstacles must be overcome for us to make progress in life.

One obstacle that came to mind for Nathan was moving to Los Angeles when he was 18 by himself.. He shared that it was rough finding his way and figuring things out as an adult for the first time in his life. 

Soon after, he met people who challenged everything he believed- making him stand up for himself to get a truly clear picture of who he is.  

Aiming For Success?  

Success is a topic that has been argued for ages. How does one achieve success? There is no guaranteed route to success but there are vital skills you need to possess in order to make your journey to success a smoother one. 

According to Nathan, one of the skills needed is the ability to understand the difference between hateful comments and good advice. Most people don’t know the difference between the two and this often leads to the dismissal of valuable constructive criticism.

Here are some words of advice from Nathan to anyone striving for success;  

“Your present becomes your future. If you want your life to be different tomorrow, do everything you can to change what you’re doing today.”
