Oola Life Review: Yet Another MLM Scheme in 2021

Been approached by an Oolalife rep?

Yes, it’s a network marketing scheme.

It’s becoming all the rage on social media.

This one is going into the pre-launch hype stage.

From long and inspiring lifestyle photos on IG.

To vague talks of a ‘business’ and ‘opportunity’

And sadly…you’re only getting one perspective.

Is there something sinister here? Is it a scam?

In this review of Oolalife, I’ll share the deets.

Let’s begin.

Oolalife Unbiased Review

The typical MLM recruiter is purely positive.

But that isn’t me. I like critical thinking here.

This is totally unbiased. I’m not enrolling you.

Although I do advocate building a real business.

But I aint pitching anything here. Facts only.

Are we good? 🙂 Alright, let’s move on…

So….”What is Oola?” And “What is involved?”

Well, allow me to unpack the whole thing here.

Firstly…it’s an MLM for the self help industry.

The ‘product’ itself is the course & coaching.

All designed to help you change your life.

With their soft launch coming on June 7th

And the full public launch on July the 7th.

It’s based on the book ‘Oola’ about freedom.

And the funniest part of this whole thing…

Oola was named based on the word Oolala.

Dr Troy and Dr Dave

These guys are chiropractors behind Oola

After becoming self-help and freedom authors

Of their epic book, with strong reviews…

They decided to go for something bigger.

By building a global community of peeps.

Enter: Oola Global. Their new MLM gig.

Something that’s going to the moon 🚀

The Oola Platform

The platform seems so very alluring

Especially for those in existing MLMs.

Looking at the pros, it’s very attractive..

Apparently FDA compliance isn’t needed.

Paired with no needing to buy inventory.

And it’s affordable too…at just $700.

So there’s some real upside in here.

You can also become an Oola Coach too.

Being fully certified by Oola themselves. 🙃

These are typically higher-ups in the MLM.

Is This A Pyramid Scheme?

No. Oola has few pyramid scheme elements.

While it’s digital, there are physical products too.

The owners know the FTC has shutdown others.

And didn’t want to raise alarm bells for people.

So they added the physical products inside…

But I think the focus is on the digital side.

Oola Life, it appears, is here for the long haul.

As long as product sales take precedence

Over MLM recruiting tactics on Facebook.

Since that would make Oola a pyramid.

So be real careful on how you promote it. ✅

Why Are So Many People Joining?

Because of the big ticket commissions. 😉

Just kidding. But, actually….kinda not….

You see, there’s some big money to be made.

If you’re an existing life coach or MLM rep.

Oola’s Compensation Plan is very strong.

So a lot of people see the potential here.

Especially as it’s all focused on self help.

Why Is This MLM Different?

Personal development MLMs are rare.

Like many use it as a motivational tool

But so few have it as their core product.

Especially one with coaching also inside.

It’s also mostly digital, saving you a ton.

(‘Cause normal MLMs have pricey wares)

I really love that Oola is only $50/month.

So this is excellent for the self help crew.

Since people naturally want to change lives.

But hate selling pills, potions and lotions.

The ideal opportunity for the right person.

It’s also ground-floor, so timing is perfect.

Is It Worth It?

Joining Oola Life means sharing it around.

So you’ll have to dress up your social media

But like other MLMs, stay a little secretive.

Your job will still require some active selling.

Through creating a big of a ‘lifestyle’ online.

After all, you want those juicy comms… 💰

Long captions as stories on epic photos.

All the while hoping someone inboxes you.

You’ll still have the life of the MLM recruiter

But yet…you’ll focus on personal development.

Now, I don’t think this industry has much left.

Since people realize there are 100+ biz models.

That don’t require pitching to friends and family.

(Many burned friendships out there today…)

Plus the weird/awkward pitching on Facebook.

It always feel a little bit icky for some people.

Some recruits care little about these issues.

Or they simply want to use the product itself.

WIth zero ambition towards enrolling others.

But chances are that you need some moolah…

So if you’re happy to get up on the treadmill.

With that big dream still bursting inside you…

Then Oolalife is the best opportunity in 2021. 🙂

You Are Enough: How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you. 

-Lao Tzu

Instead of comparing our lot with that of those who are more fortunate than we are, we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men. It then appears that we are among the privileged. 

-Helen Keller

Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another.

 – Marquis de Condorcet

Albert Einstein revolutionized how we see the world through the Law of Relativity, the idea that what something is, how it behaves, how we experience it can all change depending on our perspective. It’s true in science, and it’s right in everyday life.

I’m taller than someone else. But I’m shorter than this other person. I’m smarter than that person. But when I’m around this other person, I know very little. I’m stronger than this guy over here, but he’s faster than me or vice versa. Sometimes I’m super talkative and sometimes I’m shy. 

This gal’s a better artist. That one has more followers on YouTube. But maybe I’m a better videographer. 

So maybe I’m not the best blogger in the spirituality and self-improvement space. Should I get out of the business? Should I feel discouraged, depressed, or jealous? I can look at the strengths I have, namely, being open and honest and loving to share with others. Does the fact that someone else has those same strengths somehow diminish my own?

It’s all relative. And it makes me wonder, why do we compare ourselves to anything at all? 

At any given moment, it doesn’t change our height, smarts, strength, speed, sociability or anything else. If comparing ourselves to others only serves to make us feel less than or more, then why do we do it? Does it bring us joy or destroy our self-confidence? 

Does it expand our sense of well-being? Does it help us feel connected to others or separate us? Does comparing have any usefulness in our lives?

Can we stop comparing ourselves to others? That’s what I’d like to explore with you.

Why Do We Compare Ourselves to Others?

Humans compare themselves to others. We just do. It comes so naturally to most of us that I have to think there must be an evolutionary reason for it. 

If we think back to paleolithic times or even much later when people lived in small communities, comparing ourselves made a lot more sense. It helped people establish their place in their community and identify how best they could contribute to the group’s survival. 

But oh, how things have changed. We’re no longer just comparing ourselves to the few dozen people in our village, tribe, extended family, or what have you. We are globally connected through media, marketing, entertainment, social media. Now, we have thousands of people we can compare to ourselves.

So while in a small community, we could have been the smartest or the strongest or the prettiest or the best artist or hunter. But when we expand the competition to just about everyone globally, there is always someone better than us. Always.

And there are always people worse off than us. Then sometimes they look better in one aspect, but we don’t know they’re depressed and hurting.

The whole reason we ever really compared ourselves to anyone doesn’t exist anymore. And I could even argue that it never really existed. 

All a person can ever do is become a better version of themselves. They can’t become a better version of someone else. That’s fake. 

When we’re looking out there for validation of how good we are, we end up sad and exhausted because while we’re trying to be like people who have fancy cars or million followers or endless wardrobe or whatever it is, that’s time we could be focusing on working on ourselves and achieving our dreams. You with me?

What Damage Do Comparisons Cause?

What’s the harm in comparisons? Is it significant enough to choose to stop? My personal take: Stopping the comparisons is one of the most important things you can do to improve your mental and spiritual health. It can even improve your physical health because we instead do what’s right for our own body when we stop comparing. 

So I’m going to lay this out, and let me know what you think.

It’s Unfair to You

Like I said, the pool of people we’re trying to compare ourselves to today is enormous to the point that comparisons are no longer relevant. It’s unfair for you to expect yourself to compare to millions of people of which the most talented, gifted, etc., also tend to be the most visible. 

So we’re not even comparing ourselves to everyone. We’re already trying to compete with people who are where they are because they’re in some way better than those around them. 

It’s not fair. It never will be, so it’s a waste of mental energy.

There’s No Such Thing as an Apples to Apple Comparison

You have no way of knowing what that person has sacrificed or done to get good at that one thing. They may be miserable. They may never see their mother. They may live in fear of losing it all. They may feel forced to create content to stay relevant. 

Those may not be things you want in your life or would be willing to endure for fame, fortune, beauty, or respect. 

We don’t see the whole picture, and there’s no way we can. 

A healthy person can wish they were smarter or more sociable. A more sociable person may want to be healthier and smarter because someone else is. The comparisons don’t really mean anything because we’re not actually comparing two like things.

Once again: I can only say that I’m a better, stronger, faster, smarter person than I was yesterday. That’s the only comparison that matters. 

You’re Artificially Inflating Ego

What happens when you’re the most beautiful person in the world? You may become so focused on your own beauty that you forget to focus on other things. When we are constantly reassured by ourselves and others that we have achieved the highest goal, we often stop trying to make ourselves better as a whole.

Ego Inflation Is Fleeting 

Now, what happens when you are no longer the strongest or best, and everyone has moved onto the next big thing. On social media, this can happen in a matter of hours or minutes. You feel this sudden boost, but then all of the admirers are gone. Seeking validation through comparisons from the outside just leaves us feeling empty on the inside. 

You May Develop Resentment

When you’re comparing yourself, you’ll find yourself resenting people. Oh, that guy is a stingy rich person who doesn’t care about anything but their money. That’s just jealousy and resentment talking. That’s a snap judgement based on nothing other than them having something you want. They could be a great person. Why not find out?

It doesn’t matter what it is. When we compare ourselves to others, we are often secretly wishing they’d fail so we can be #1 or coveting what they have. That’s no way to live. Not only does it make us feel disconnected spiritually from others. It turns us into kind of a nasty person who doesn’t like to see others succeed. 

You May Become Full of Yourself

Let’s say you really do have it all in your mind. Okay. Now, you’re walking around telling everybody you’re the most spiritual, good-looking, intelligent, and so on. 

It will be hard to connect on a meaningful level with anyone because you’re always talking about how great you are and pushing people away.

Mental Health Challenges

Comparing ourselves to others can also make a lot of mental health problems worse. If you have social anxiety, you’re even more anxious around people if you’re constantly comparing yourself. If you have depression, then one trolling comment on your post can bring your mental state way down in an instant.

How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Now, let’s see: This is definitely something we don’t want to carry anymore. It may have had some use, but it’s not doing us any favors now. Let’s make a plan together on how to beat this. 

Start with Awareness

You’ll hear me say this again and again. So often, we’re not even aware when we’re doing something that is hurting us. We’re not mindful. To become aware. Pay attention when you feel some kind of comparison coming up.

Notice it. Don’t judge it. It’s natural to compare. You’ve been doing it since you were born. 

You’ve been doing this a long time, so it’s going to happen. Just bring those feelings and thought forward so you can look at them.

Stop the Comparison

Now, I don’t mean stop as is, bad girl, bad boy, stop that. Just gently stop the behavior to keep from letting you take you into a spiral of false pride, shame, sadness, or fear.

Think of What You’re Grateful for

Count your blessings. You’ve got a lot to be thankful for, and focusing on your strengths makes your strengths stronger. Focusing on any perceived weakness just tears you down. 

And so often, when we are comparing, it’s not even a weakness. We’re just not as good as someone else. So what? 

Don’t Be Grateful for Other’s Shortcomings

So I will say to be careful here. Beware this trap. Some people start feeling grateful by mentally putting the other person down. 

“I’m so grateful that I’m funnier than them.” 

Yeah, still a comparison, and we’re trying to get away from that.

In fact, let’s not put other people down in our heads or aloud because that’s not the kind of person you want to be.

Find Contentment in Not Being the Absolute Best

Some of us are hyper-competitive. It’s in our blood. We have to be the GOAT. 

Look: It’s great to be the best at something, but for every person who is the best at something, there are thousands of people who aren’t far behind. So when it comes down to it, what does it matter. We’re talking about millimeters of differences. Are we going to get that petty? 

Just let it go. Embrace your imperfections. 

Learn to Love the Journey

Celebrate the fact that you’re always growing and learning more. That’s what life is all about. 

When we stay focused on beating our personal best instead of someone else’s, we grow and get better much faster. 

I say this on an intellectual level. But this is also emotional. Feeling content and loving our imperfections is an emotional journey. We need to listen to those emotions and not reject them, judge them, or suppress them. But as we process our feelings, we can find a place where we do feel content just being. 

Know the Value of Enough

There will always be that next tech device, vacay locale, spa treatment, expensive beauty product, clothes brand, or whatever the social media influencers are pushing and telling you that you can’t live without. 

But when it comes to personal possessions that you might want because someone else has them, there is peace of mind to be found in realizing, you know, I’ve got enough. I don’t need that. I don’t really want that. I just like that because I like that YouTuber and want to be like them. 

When you realize that wanting things that people are selling is just another piece of the comparison puzzle, it’s so much easier to step back and say, no, I’m good with what I have. 

You have enough, even if you think you don’t have a lot. Minimalism is still huge. So many people are figuring out they really don’t need to keep up with everyone else.

So when it comes to personal growth, health, mental wellness, relationships, yes, let’s always be working on improving those things. But Life is so much more fulfilling when you don’t and accept the value in enough.

21 Creative Ways to Leave a Genuine Legacy for Others

Have you ever thought about what kind of legacy you would like to leave behind? A legacy is something transmitted or received from those who come before us. It’s what your actions say about you as a person and how they affect people’s memory of you. 

You can think of it this way: if today was your last day on earth, what would you hope people remember about you? What contributions would you like to have made to future generations? 

Thinking about what stamp we hope to put on the future can help us lead more meaningful lives. However, it can also be an intimidating thing to consider. So, how can you live life to the fullest while also creating a better future for family and friends? Read on to discover 21 creative ways to leave a legacy. 

1. Be Kind

Leaving a lasting legacy starts with being kind to others. 

Think about your daily behaviors, and consider how you can make other people’s lives better with simple gestures. Treat others how you want to be treated, and try to lift others up–even if it’s with something as small as a smile or a positive attitude. Remember: people forget what you say, but they remember how you make them feel.  

2. Be a Mentor

Sharing your hard-earned wisdom via a mentor/mentee relationship is an excellent way to leave a legacy.

Everyone has wisdom and life experiences that can benefit others, whether you think so or not. By becoming a mentor, you help someone in their personal development and support them as they tackle difficult situations. You also help create new mindsets in the process. 

And the best part of all? These relationships usually become quite meaningful. They frequently outlast the mentoring stage and turn into lifelong friendships. 

3. Keep a Record of Family Recipes

Cooking creates a sense of belonging, and what we eat is very much a part of our legacy–which is why you might want to keep a record of your favorite family recipes. Think about the ones you can’t imagine not being passed down, and include them in a recipe book. After all, nothing brings back childhood memories quite like tucking into your grandma’s favorite pasta dish.

4. Give the Gift of Time

It may sound cliche, but it’s true: time is the most precious gift we can give to our loved ones. When your kids are grown, their memories of you are not likely to be the presents you gave them or promotions you received at work. Instead, they will remember the quality time you spent with them. 

So put down your phone, leave that email for tomorrow, and be present with your friends and family. 

5. Raise Your Children to Be Good People

If you have children, one of your most visible legacies is how you raise them. Teaching your kids morals, kindness, and humility will not only help them have better lives but will also help make the world a better place. 

6. Volunteer

Volunteering offers a myriad of benefits and is an excellent opportunity to leave a meaningful legacy. It can help with personal development, such as building confidence and cultivating social skills. It’s also a highly rewarding activity, and it has positive effects on our mental health. 

Aside from benefiting us, volunteering of course benefits others in many ways. If you want to make a difference in your community and ultimately make the world a better place, becoming a volunteer is a fantastic place to start. 

The best part? There are so many different ways to volunteer and groups to help. Whether you organize a local beach cleanup, read to sick children at a hospital, or sort food at a food bank, the options are endless. All you have to do is find a cause that speaks to you and offer your time. 

7. Donate

If you’re in a position to do so, use your finances to improve the lives of others. Donating to causes near and dear to your heart is an excellent way to leave a legacy, as it’s something you can see the direct effects of. 

There are plenty of options to donate to charities, organizations, or causes. You might want to set up a recurring donation, or conversely, you might decide to set up a scholarship fund. 

8. Demonstrate Your Love

Love is the greatest force in the world. Loving everyone, even strangers and people who aren’t wonderful to you, is the best way to create a peaceful world. Love those around you fiercely, and demonstrate your love as much as possible. You never know who need your love, and what better way to be remembered than as a person who loved without limits? 

9. Create a Family Tree

Genealogy research is an excellent way to help your children and grandchildren understand their origins. If one doesn’t already exist, create a family tree to memorialize facts about your family. 

A perfect starting place is genealogy websites, which can help you fill in the gaps in your knowledge. You may also want to take a DNA test with one of the popular heritage testing kits to see if you uncover anything useful. 

Be sure to include as much info as you can in your part of the tree. Detail your relationship with your nuclear family, as well as cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents. A family tree is also an excellent place for relevant family stories, and future generations can add relevant information too.  

10. Pay Your Debts

Did you know that some types of loans can be passed on to next of kin? Your finances form part of your legacy, so if you can, try your best to pay debts. Knowing that you’re leaving your loved ones free from your financial burdens will help you rest easy. 

11. Write a Will

No one likes to think about it, but take the time to draft a will. Even if you are fairly young, having a will is the best way to be prepared. It will ensure that your family benefits from financial assets you’ve acquired should the unthinkable happen. 

Think carefully about how your properties or things can benefit your family members, and give accordingly. For example, you might want to ensure your son receives your good cookware if he’s a chef. Or if you’re the owner of a house you share with a spouse, set things up so ownership of the house will pass to them. 

12. Advocate for Disadvantaged People

If you’re in a position of power, help those who aren’t to make their voices heard. It might be someone young and new in your office who isn’t being listened to, or it could be someone of a different race, gender, or ability. Amplifying other’s voices, especially in situations where they are actively disregarded, will both help them succeed and be a part of your legacy.  

13. Start a Journal

A journal is an excellent way to transmit your values and life experiences to the next generation. If writing isn’t your thing, not to worry. Journaling needn’t be a daily habit; instead, you can use the pages to keep a record of important events in your life, such as:

  • Births
  • Job changes, including when you got your first job
  • Weddings
  • Deaths
  • Significant achievements
  • Any serious illnesses

In this manner, you can help your family remember key moments. A journal is also an ideal way to tell your life story in your own words, and it may very well become a treasured family item. 

14. Record Family Traditions

Often, some of our most cherished memories are traditions we participated in as children. Traditions instill a sense of belonging, regardless of whether you still do them, and they form a vital part of your legacy. 

Be sure to record yours in some way (by writing them down or taking videos). If you have abandoned some traditions, this idea may provide the impetus to start doing them again. Otherwise, recording traditions helps ensure their survival. 

15. Share Skills

Sharing knowledge is a touching way to leave a legacy. Even if you think your skills are less than useful, pass them along to your children or grandchildren. Getting together to share knowledge is a fun way to bond, especially when it comes to grandchildren, who often appreciate this token of love. 

Similarly, be giving with professional skills you have. Share your valuable insight with anyone who has less experience. Taking the time to do so can help others grow and in the process make your industry/company better.  

16. Pursue What You’re Passionate About

Think about the things you’re passionate about–how do you feel when you do them? Words like happy, fulfilled, and centered probably come to mind. You likely engage in these passions, whatever they are, fully and with intensity. 

Always make time for and pursue your passions because the things we’re passionate about are the things most likely to impact others. At the very least, the happiness we get from doing them helps make us better people. 

17. Live Fully

It may sound cheesy, but there is no time like the present; don’t wait to fulfill your dreams. Seizing the day is one of the best ways to live a life with meaning and make sure that you leave a lasting legacy. Do things that scare you so that, in the final hours of your life, you will have no regrets. 

Aside from helping you live a fuller life, this passion for living is contagious. Your friends and family will remember it when you’re gone. 

18. Help Your Community

If you see a need in your community, be the first to fill it. Does the local children’s playground need updating? Spearhead a fundraiser for it. Are residents having trouble with recycling? Start a recycling program. Elderly neighbors unable to rake their yards in fall? Offer to help them. 

There are many ways to be of aid to your community. Taking an active interest in your neighborhood is a fantastic way to leave a lasting legacy on it. 

19. Memorialize Family Stories

Think about curious family anecdotes and memorialize them for future generations in writing

Was your grandfather a Vietnam War veteran? Does your aunt have three different degrees? Perhaps your cousin learned to speak French fluently as an adult. Write them down. 

While these stories may not seem incredibly interesting now, they may provide fascinating insight for future generations. You will offer them an incredible look at where they came from by taking the time to share these anecdotes. 

20. Share

Even when life seems hard and overwhelming, there is always much to be thankful for. Be mindful of all the blessings you have, and share those blessings with others whenever you have the opportunity. 

Similarly, share what you have–whether that’s time, advice, effort, money, or things. Share without expecting anything in return, and share as often as you can. Creating a legacy of giving and sharing is one of the most beautiful legacies you can create. 

21. Draft a Legacy Letter

Finally, there’s no better way to leave a legacy than by telling the people closest to you how much they meant to you with a legacy letter. 

Imagine what you’d say to your family and friends if you knew you were at the end of your life. Avoid practical matters, such as funeral arrangements or where to make your house payment, which should be addressed elsewhere. 

Instead, a legacy letter is a way to speak directly to those that matter and tell them things you may not have gotten a chance to. To tell your wife how much she meant to you, for example, or let your children know how proud of them you are. 

Final Words

There you have it–21 creative ways to leave a legacy for others. As you can see, there are many different ways to do so, but first, you must ask yourself what you want to live on after you’re gone. Strive to live your most outstanding life, and you will create a long-lasting legacy.

Course Rating
4.6/5

About Me

Hey there, I’m Joshua. I don’t drive a Ferrari or sip coconuts on the beach.

My focus remains on actual work and consistent progress through:

✏️ Search Marketing

✏️ Content Publishing

✏️ Consulting/Client Work

✏️ eCommerce (side hustle)

I’ve been blogging since 2011. Today, more than 700,000 people globally have read my blog and in-depth course reviews.

Let’s get this going.

Course Modules

7 Day Accelerator

The first module in the series that sees us get straight into the trenches.

In this module, comprising of 35+ tutorials, Dylan takes students through the entire process to get them moving in 7 days.

He leads the series with 4 inspirational student case studies who have achieved success in a relatively short space of time.

Week 1 - The Foundations

Comprising of 10+ tutorials, this module is about mindset and offers.

Like many online courses that I’ve bought, Dylan spends the bulk of this module discussing the mindset needed for success.

I praise this as he somewhat rips into those who get too much shiny object syndrome in this online business industry.

Week 2 - Build Your Business

Dylan is a businessman at heart and this module was well developed.

Throughout this module (and indeed the previous module too) I felt a sense that Dylan was inspired by Sam Ovens.

His content delivery and reasoning is very crisp and he comes in with a top-down somewhat view of scaling up a business.

Week 3 - Free Marketing Methods

Want to scale up your business with no money? This module is for you.

As a content marketer, I love free marketing methods. Give me a keyboard and I’ll be whipping up content like no tomorrow.

Fortunately, Dylan has followed suit. Many students aren’t rich and turn to his free marketing methods to grow their business.

Week 4 - Paid Marketing Methods

Got zee cash? This module is for you.

After you’ve gone through the free marketing methods that Dylan discusses, I recommend the paid methods too.

While you perhaps can’t afford to spend much today on Facebook ads, you can reinvest your profits into your business.

Week 5 - Business Automation

Dylan runs his business through systems.

It’s in this module that I’m sure that Dylan has learned a lot from Sam Ovens and systemising a service-based business.

He even talks about productising the business with set fees for clients, making the whole process easier for everyone.

Week 6 - Business Scaling

Keen to build an online empire? You’ll love this module.

This module was my favourite by far as I could finally start to see the real potential behind the business model.

Sure, some people like to stay small as a solopreneur, but others (like me) are looking to build an 8-figure business.

Bonus Module - Inside Dylan's Business

Dylan opens the front door of his own business in this module.

I always hated when I bought a course but the educator didn’t want to show anything about their own business systems.

Dylan has taken a different approach here and shares as much as he can (within reason) so you can emulate his success.

The Blackbox

Imagine the final pieces of the puzzle. That’s what The Blackbox is.

In this module, Dylan talks about The Blackbox which contains more additional content not found in the course. What is it?

Well, this is the last piece of the puzzle that I don’t wish to spoil. You’ll have to enrol today to find out yourself. 😉

Next Level Mastermind

Fancy working with Dylan and other high-level business owners? This is for you.

Some might refer to this as an upsell, but after going through the entire course, it’s clear that nothing is left out.

This is a coaching offer for those who want to continue the journey and potentially get moving in business faster.

Facebook Community

Frequency of Posting

20+ posts per week.

A big gripe I have from other Facebook groups is the lack of regular engagement. Fortunately, this isn’t the case here.

Given that Dylan’s students are mostly millenials, many are inside the group daily discussing their lessons and successes.

Group Quality

Medium to High.

One of the biggest challenges with other courses I’ve purchased is the quality of students. Some courses enrol almost anyone.

I haven’t seen anyone spam the Facebook group recently. The questions are high quality and daily discussion is encouraged.

Additional Extras

Dylan shares regularly in the group.

Most educators I see are nowhere to be found within their own Facebook groups. It’s really quite….strange.

Fortunately Dylan is often responding to questions and creating more dialogue while sharing some additional content.

Comparison to Other Business Models

eCommerce

More affordable.

Dylan’s system is more affordable than eCommerce (with the excemption of drop shipping, but that’s too competitive).

Typically in eCommerce, you’ll have to spend $10k USD or more just to get started, or $40k if you really want to scale.

Affiliate Marketing

You’ll likely be making an income sooner.

I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for 10 years and only recently came across Dylan’s system. Affiliate marketing is a long play.

You’ll have to write lots of content and satisfy searcher-intent to rank highly on search engines. Not with Dylan’s system.

Marketing Agencies

Dropservicing Blueprint requires less day-to-day work.

Unlike traditional agencies where you’re doing the work yourself after landing a client, Dylan is all about outsourcing.

You’re simply finding someone who can do the hard work for you, and you’ll enjoy a pretty reasonable profit.

Final Analysis

Solid Training

Dylan’s Dropservicing Blueprint really does cover all bases.

Some courses hide information and it’s only available if you pay for the upsell. Fortunately, Dylan’s is different.

The only upsell is a coaching mastermind which I personally think is unnecessary. I can afford it but the course is enough.

Vibrant Community

The better part is the supportive community.

While the course is certainly jam-packed with content (and much more than I was expecting!) the value lays in the FB group.

As I mentioned, it’s busy and vibrant with hundreds of questions answered over the last few years. I could scroll for hours!

Untapped Business Model

Most businesses are still coming online and need constant services.

Given this, it’s the perfect time to get started with a trending business model which can scale as much as you want.

Paired with the fact that you can get started with very little money, repaying the course cost with your very first client.

What Is Your Purpose? 16 Steps To Find Your Why In Life

What is my purpose? Life is short and unpredictable. Some people will live long, content lives and go to their final resting place at peace. But others may be taken from this world too early before they had time to accomplish all that they wanted in their lives. 

A common trend among people who are facing their last moments of life is regret. Regret for all of the things they didn’t get to do. Or shame for wasting their precious short life doing something that didn’t bring true fulfillment. And for not discovering and exploring their life purpose.  

If you want to live a full and happy life with no regrets, you have to discover your “Why.” Not everyone will live a life of greatness that will change the world. But everyone can experience great moments that can change the life of one person. Use these sixteen steps to find out your why in life so you can live a life of purpose, fulfillment, happiness, and inner peace. 

Step 1: What Do You Love? 

Everyone has an extraordinary passion that helps us escape the chaos of our busy lives and be in the moment. Some people like to enjoy the outdoors by cycling, hiking, or viewing wildlife.  

Other people prefer to get lost in art, whether it’s painting, sketching, playing music, writing, or doing some dancing. 

Defining your passions in life is the first step in finding out your life’s purpose. For many of us, our passion is the driving force behind finding inner peace.  

When your day becomes chaotic, and you need a stress-relief, think about the activity you use to get back in sync. This life-saver is part of your life’s Why.  

Step 2: What Do You Get Lost Doing? 

For many people who are not yet on the correct path towards their life’s purpose, the minutes seem to drag on when you’re doing things you don’t enjoy, like work. Yet time goes by quickly when you’re doing something you love. We all know the saying, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” 

When you discover what is my purpose – the driving factor that gets you up every morning and causes you to make sacrifices to keep doing it – you start to find true happiness. 

If you love what you do, you feel excited at every opportunity, and you experience a stronger sense of pride for your accomplishments.  

Think about what makes the time go by faster without making you feel like you’re sacrificing a piece of your soul to achieve it. This passion is part of the Why of your life.  

Step 3: What Can You Not Stop Doing? 

Most people have one thing in their lives that they have to do, no matter what sacrifices they have to make. Think about your life. What is something you can’t resist doing, even if it annoys other people? 

Avid runners will get their miles in, no matter the weather conditions. A writer may stay up all night even though they have to get up early the following day because there’s a scene in their mind they have to get out. Musicians play on streets, in garages, or for non-paying gigs so that they can share their music.  

If something drives you so much that you can’t resist the call, chances are it’s something you’re meant to do with your life. Stop ignoring the signs. 

Step 4: What Drives You? 

We all have an inner force that drives us forward. Maybe you have a spouse, children, or a pet that you adore more than life. Perhaps you have the desire to honor your parents and make them proud, so you have their approval. Or you could be a goal-setter who has firm plans of what you want to achieve in your future.  

When you have a solid reason to succeed, you have a purpose for your life. Figuring out what motivates you to live is a vital component of discovering your life’s Why.  

These motivators will serve as your inspiration to never give up, to keep pushing forward until you’ve achieved what you’ve set out to accomplish. Failure will not be an option. The only failure is not to try.  

Step 5: What Makes You Happy? 

One of the best motivational stories we can give you goes like this – 

“A teacher asked a boy what he wanted to be when he grew up. He said, “To be happy.” The teacher told him he didn’t understand the assignment. He replied, “You don’t understand life.” 

While you should want to live a successful life, you should care more about living a happy one. Money will not buy you happiness, and your job will not care if you die.  

It’s essential to spend your life doing things that make you happy. The money you make isn’t going to do anything for you after you’ve left this life. As you draw your last breath, you won’t be thinking about money.  

If you could categorize your life from the day you are born until the day you die, you may end up with regrets to see that you spent more time working and less time living. When you live with a purpose, you won’t waste a single day because you did what made you happy. For that, you’ll be the richest person alive. 

Step 6: What Would You Do If You Didn’t Need Money? 

An excellent exercise for figuring out your life’s cause is to envision what you would spend your life doing if you didn’t have to worry about money?  

If you didn’t have to work for a paycheck, would you take a low-paying job playing in a band or painting on the boardwalk? Would you lead humanitarian efforts to help others in poor countries?  

Or would you still be doing the same job you do now? When you love what you do, it’s not working. Instead, you’re getting paid to fulfill your life’s purpose. You can only reach happiness when you’re doing what you are meant to do.  

Step 7 – Imagine You Only Have One Year to Live 

Most people want to avoid thinking about their death. This fear leads them to put off things they want to accomplish because they believe there will always be time later. 

But nothing in life is guaranteed – especially your last breath. Freak accidents occur all the time, and many people run out of time to do everything they’ve dreamed of trying. 

Imagine that you’ve gotten news that you only have one year left to live. Would you spend that year working your regular, miserable job and doing the same boring routine? Or would you chase your dreams and try to leave behind a legacy of giving it all you got? 

Because life is short and unpredictable, don’t wait until later to start your life’s purpose. If you know what you’re meant to do, go for it full-force. 

Step 8 – Set Your Values 

Without values, you’ll never be able to live a life of purpose. Your values are part of who you are, and they affect what you do with your life. 

Think about the important things to you – family, friends, pets, personal possessions, hobbies, job security, etc. What gives your life meaning and brings you joy?  

Once you’re through listing all of these different things, combine them into categories or themes – love, success, pleasure, etc. These themes are your core values, and they will play a part in the Why of your life. 

Step 9 – Learn Your Strengths 

We all have things that we’re good at doing. Maybe people know you for your strong ability to give advice, make plans, organize events, or for your artistic skills. 

Your strengths are a crucial component of discovering your life’s purpose. You may be good at things because they come naturally to you, but it’s also because you do it a lot. Practice makes perfect.  

If you’re having trouble figuring out your strengths, ask your friends, family, co-workers, and anyone that you associate with or assist.  

Step 10 – Determine Your Talents 

We all have an innate ability to do something so well that it’s almost natural. These activities are a significant part of who you are as a person.  

Your talents are often clues to your life’s purpose. When you indulge in your talents, you lose track of everything except being in the moment. Your mind is at peace, you feel overjoyed, and nothing else matters.  

If you’re experiencing discontent in your life, you might be suffering from deprivation of your life’s purpose. Not doing what you love to do can make you feel like you’re slowly dying inside. Doing what you love is like replenishing your soul’s gas tank. It gives you the fuel needed to keep going and be happy.  

Step 11 – Figure Out Your Escapes 

Life is stressful and exhausting. Having to constantly live up to expectations and complete all the things on our to-do lists can take its toll and leave you feeling spent and miserable. 

To recharge your batteries, think about what you like to do to escape. Do you put on music and go for a long drive or a run? Do you play music, paint, make something with your hands, or sweat the stress out at the gym? 

Your escapes are another clue to your life’s purpose. You feel peace and joy from these things because they’re what you’re meant to do. When you find a way to make your escape part of your regular life, you’ll be on the path to successfully living your life’s purpose. 

Step 12 – Remember Your Childhood 

Thinking back on your childhood is a fantastic way to discover your purpose in life. As a child, before all of the pressures of adulthood, you only do things you love, and that makes you happy.  

But as we enter adulthood, we tend to give up the things that make our souls sing to chase green paper that many people seem to denote our success in life. 

To truly embrace your Why in life, you have to learn how to embrace those things you loved to do before life became so stressful. Take time to reflect on your childhood.  

For most people, there are patterns throughout your life that revolve around the things you’re supposed to do. Figure out the theme of these patterns to discover what gives you enjoyment. 

Step 13 – Help Others 

People who have discovered their purpose in life have learned that helping others brings you happiness and inner peace.  

Even if you’ve never experienced someone helping you, you still feel joy at doing something nice for another person. Just because someone looks fine on the outside doesn’t mean they aren’t in turmoil on the inside. As the late, great Robin Williams said, “Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind.”  

When you do something for another person without any expectations of compensation, you feed your soul positive energy. Something as simple as holding a door open for a mother whose hands are full or paying for a stranger’s coffee can fill you with happiness.  

Compliment a stranger. Listen to a friend’s problem and offer advice. Or volunteer to help those less fortunate. Donate to a charity. There are plenty of ways to be selfless and help others without much effort.  

Step 14 – Teach and Be Taught 

Along with helping others, many people who have discovered their life’s purpose want to share their knowledge with others who share the same interests or passions. 

Having another person who understands your drive, who has also experienced the feeling of getting lost in the moment and forgetting everything else, allows you to connect with someone who won’t judge or think you’re crazy.  

Teaching others also lets you learn new things about yourself, about the subject, and life. Don’t be afraid of not having all the answers or having a different perspective. Share your knowledge, your beliefs, and let others do the same to you.  

Step 15 – Stop Caring What Others Think 

When you’ve discovered your life’s true purpose, you’ll start on a journey that will give every day of your life meaning, even if you don’t do anything others consider significant. 

But along your path, you will always have speed bumps. There will be plenty of people who may not understand your need to fulfill your life’s Why.  

You have to learn how to ignore the naysayers. If what you’re doing is making you happy and gives your life meaning, you’ve discovered the secret to life. Other people won’t understand until they’ve found their way. 

Don’t let age, experience, or fear stop you from achieving what you want to do. Everyone has to start somewhere. If someone has spent more time doing something, naturally, they might be better than you. It doesn’t mean you can’t be as good once you’ve put in the blood, sweat, tears, and effort. You have to pay your dues. 

Step 16 – Analyze Your Motives 

What is my purpose? The final step to discovering your purpose in life is to analyze your motives. Why do you want to learn about your life’s purpose? Are you feeling unsatisfied with your current situation? 

Do you feel an intense urge to become successful or impact the world or history? Are you hoping to find inner peace and fulfillment? 

Keep asking why for every answer you get when you’re trying to answer the question of what you’re meant to do with your life. Analyze the recurring themes to your answers to find out your biggest motivations. You’ll have better success at learning your life’s Why when you know what’s driving you to make the change. 

How to Visually Map Out Your Future and 10-Year Plan

When you settle in for a job interview, what’s one of the first things they ask you? If they don’t ask, where do you see yourself in ten years? Then, they’ll probably ask you where do you see yourself in five years? This is especially true for jobs and careers that require an investment from the employer. Your potential future employer wants to make sure that you’re going to stick around.

So, that’s the real question, where are you going to be in 10 years?

A 10-year plan sets you up for the next decade of your life. Life throws unpredictable shots at everyone. The chances that everything will go according to the plan is a toss-up. But, at least you’ll have an outline of the things that you want to accomplish. It’s one way to prevent taking severe wrong turns, doubling back, or making a U-turn altogether. 

Let’s look at some tips to help you how to map out your future and 10-year plan.

What is a Visual Map?

Before getting started, ensure that you understand the visual map concept; visual maps are also known as mind mapping. It’s a series of arrows and lines that stem from a central idea. In this case, the central idea is you. You are the starting point. The other items on the map surround you.

The arrows and lines represent branches. The branches lead to specific ideas. For example, in the next ten years, you hope to marry. One of your branches points to your future spouse. On that branch, write down your spouse. To define your ideal spouse characteristics, draw another branch. This is a sub-category.

Visual Map Tools

Pinterest is a visual map tool some individuals use. It’s simple to navigate and easily accessible online. Plus, it’s free. During the brainstorming phase, Pinterest comes in handy as you gather ideas. Don’t over-rely on it, though. This is your visual map, not someone else’s. Don’t get caught up in the perception of some else’s perfect life. Focus on yourself.

Journals are another highly recommended visual map tool. As you explore the thoughts and ideas in your mind, jot them down in the journal. It keeps everything in one place. Journals provide several pages for writing.

A visual map is similar to an idea storyboard. Instead of images, you’re using words. But, you can still use a corkboard, thumbtacks, and index cards to pin your ideas.

What Goes on a Visual Map?

For a 10-year life plan visual map, you’re going to ask yourself a series of questions around some general topics such as:

  • Housing
  • Romantic relationship
  • Family
  • Career
  • Friendships
  • Travel
  • Transportation
  • Health
  • Community

Today’s young people face far more uncertainty than the previous. So, many find themselves in a constant state of turmoil. Opportunity and happiness present themselves in all economic conditions and state of world affairs. It boils down to whether or not you are ready to capitalize when happiness and opportunity present themselves.

How To Visually Map Your Future Steps

With those topics in mind, grab a piece of paper and a pen or your favorite marker. Draw a circle and write your name in the middle. Pick the most important topic from the list. For this example, we will focus on housing as the key topic.

Mind Map Example: Housing

Draw a branch from the circle with your name to a new circle. In the new circle, write the word Housing. 

Now, think about the type of housing you want to be living in 10 years out. Draw a branch from the Housing circle to a new circle. In the new circle, write down the kind of housing. You may want to live in a condo. Other people aim for a three-bedroom house on the coast. 

Mind Map Example: Health

Let’s pick a second topic. We’ll use Health this time. From the circle with your name,  draw a new branch to a new circle. Inside, write Health. Now, think about ways to get healthy or ways to maintain health.

Your future health depends on your current health. Maybe you’re doing well, and you simply need to maintain it. How are you going to do that? Your family medical history may dictate that you need to stay away from sugar so that you can write a low-sugar diet. You might need more exercise, so write down gym membership.

Mind Map Example: Career

One more example to help you get started. Let’s pick the topic Career. This might need a chain of branches. What’s your ultimate career goal? Maybe your dream job is photographing puppies for a living. What do you need to do now that will get you there in 10 years?

A photographer requires equipment, photography skills, and editing skills. To start, you can take a class at the local community college, trade school, or learning annex. From your name circle in the middle, draw a branch to a new circle. Write Photography Classes. After you gain photography knowledge and theory in class, it’s time to build a portfolio.

If your friends have pets, ask them to lend you their furry friends. Photograph the pets and put together the portfolio. On the visual map, draw a branch from Photography Classes to a new circle. Write Build Portfolio. With the portfolio in hand, it’s time to make some money. Your goal is to get hired as a photographer.

From Build Portfolio, draw a new branch to a new circle. Write Get a Job. This might be enough for the next 10 years. If you are ambitious, you might add a new branch and a new circle. In that new circle, you can write Own Photography Studio.

Mind Map Examples Summary

These are some examples to get you started on the basic how-to’s of mind mapping.

Your mind map result is a series of circles and branches that stem from you in the middle. The steps include:

  • Place yourself in the middle of a page
  • Pick a topic
  • Create a branch from you to the topic
  • Feel free to create sub-topics between you and the topic with additional circles and branches
  • Admire your final product

After you draft the first one on paper, you can use software to clean it up, such as Powerpoint. 

10-Year Plan Elements

Life coaching professionals recommend clients put together a 10-year plan. It forces them to focus on the future and now. By focusing on a long-term plan, you get to know yourself better. You also begin to understand obstacles and barriers. Obstacles and barriers are a reality. They don’t have to stop you in your tracks. You simply need to prepare for them. 

An element of the 10-year plan is a focus. Goal setting is another. Suppose you’re not sure about your goals, brainstorm. You may not be ready to look 10 years into the future. Consider starting small. You can break down the plan into two 5-year segments. You can also break down the entire plan into annual segments.

If nothing else, the plan churns the cogs in your mind. Some people require motivation. If they can see their home, clothes, and family 10 years into the future, they are motivated to create change in the present.

Researching the process is another 10-year plan element. If you’re interested in running a food franchise, you learn about the process. On top of the investment the opportunity requires, you need to know how much support the franchise provides its franchisees. Budgeting, marketing, and human resources are other franchise components.

This is how you find out if you need additional business training or education. You find a purpose. 

What Benefits from a Visual Map?

A visual map stops the merry-go-round of uncertainty. Every life has stages. Today, some life stages see delays. Others receive more focus.

Some things a visual map accomplishes are:

  • Helps you realize that there are things that you don’t want because they’re not important to you
  • Know where you want to go so you can set down the path
  • Helps you visually see the path
  • Keeps you on the right path
  • Encourages you to take opportunities that benefit your path

You are allowed to wander in your life. If your wandering doesn’t negatively impact yourself or others, then you might wonder why you should stop. The point is, what happens when you can longer wander? People are living longer, so more years need funding. When you are older and get sick, how are you going to pay the bills? Will there be anyone by your side to look after you if a sickness becomes debilitating?

The map is never complete because life changes. Feel free to revise it as needed annually or bi-annually.

Visual Map Suggestions

As you work on your visual map, reach inside. Get beyond your ego and selfish side. Everyone has both snd your map is private, so you can share it or not. So, consider the following points and be honest with yourself.

You Can’t Control the Future

You’re living your life among other people. They also have dreams and goals. Your goals might coincide with someone else’s, and there may only be enough room for one. Some people relocate because a family member comes down with a debilitating health condition. Others face an unexpected relationship, accident, or loss of income.

Your visual map is probably perfect on paper. Life has other ideas.

What’s Important

Daydreaming is wonderful. It offers the opportunity to reach for the stars, and technology has made some people’s dreams come true. Influencers are living extraordinary lives. You have to figure out what’s important to you.

If jet-setting, a mansion, or a professional sports career is important, then you should go for it. It’s true for 1% of the population. For the rest, a humble home, modest family, and satisfying career is enough. The point is not to get too hung up on the material. 

Start Doing

Children are natural dreamers. At some point, dreams become unproductive. You’re going to hit your life-stride and realize where your true talents lay. If you still believe that you can achieve your dreams, start doing. You can run your corporation, but it has to start somewhere.

Go beyond collecting online courses, Pinterest ideas, and dreams. Pick one and turn it into a tangible asset. 

Be Realistic

No one should tell you that your dreams are unachievable. It’s up to you to figure that out for yourself. The rags to riches stories that you’ve heard are true. The young adults who started a multi-million dollar company from their door room stories are true, too. 

If you’re willing to give up income and time to achieve your dream, do it. Don’t give up in the middle because you might miss out. Be realistic.

Focus on the Big Priorities

Every person’s life has big priorities. You need a place to sleep, food to eat, and clothes to wear. Everything after that is a bonus. If you still live at home, maybe it’s time to move out. When you move out, you have to figure out where you are going to live, how you’re going to pay the rent, and how you’re going to feed yourself.

Maybe to score a decent income, you need more training. So, your big priority is to find a path toward gainful employment. In addition to higher education, there are trade schools and apprenticeships that get the job done, too.

How to Visually Map Out Your Future and 10-Year Plan Conclusion

It may sound cliche, but life truly is a series of ups and downs. A visual map is a great way to tackle the highs and lows. It’s easy and practically free to get started. Set aside a couple of hours or days. Sit down with your tools such as paper and a pen, and start drafting.

You are the center of the map. Everything else stems from you. Your branches can point to family, a romantic relationship, and a career. Then, branch out into sub-categories. Keep it simple, and keep it honest.

After the draft is complete, check-in on the map once a year. If you need to make adjustments, go ahead and make them. Now you have a new version to work from. The point is to keep pushing yourself forward.
