Ruby is an odd bird. People who love it, really, really, love it. The language itself is a blend between functional programming and imperative programming. There will be lots of Ruby work for years to come. But you may want to double check the listings in your particular area to ensure that at least a few companies have been bitten by the Ruby bug. The best place to learn Ruby is RubyMonk. The first step is to complete one or two personal projects, to get comfortable building things from end to end. For that, you need GitHub. GitHub is an online source code repository built on the Git platform.

It allows you to store, manage, and publish your code. Free Code Camp also has a variety of projects to try, including some front-end only ones. Here are two of my faves:. Next, you need real experience. Real experience means doing work for someone else. There are a few avenues for gaining real experience. Thanks to the popularity of GitHub there are millions of open source projects out there with open issues bugs just waiting to be fixed by someone like you. The best resource for figuring out what projects to contribute to is Code Triage. Code Triage lets you pick your favorite project and will send you a different open issue right to your inbox every day.

Find a friend, or a family member, who has a business and build them a web app or web site, or improve their existing one. Just make sure that you choose very carefully, you need to pick the right-sized project and the right family member so that you avoid any uncomfortable situations down the road. Ideally, it should be a project you can complete in under 90 days and a person with whom you have a very honest relationship. You can approach a local charity or non-profit that you feel strongly about and offer to help.

You can also use the site Catch a Fire to find a project that you can help with. Finally, if you follow the program at Free Code Camp and earn all their certificates, you will gain access to non-profit projects where you can put your skills to good use. Seriously, when the time comes, a simple change in what you call yourself can make a big difference. This article from Tech Republic will help you with that. More important than having a good resume is having a strong portfolio website. This SitePoint article gives some good advice on building a portfolio site.

The one other thing I would emphasize is that you should make sure to highlight how each of your projects solved a business problem for your client or employer. Do that, and your portfolio site will stand head and shoulders above the rest. My previous article, How to Win the Coding Interview will help you with that.

You should be prepared for more than just the coding part. This Life Hacker piece is a good roadmap to lots of valuable and important information. Just worry about getting paid to write code for a while. Once you have some more experience under your belt, you can start to consider your next move. Being your own boss is an amazing thing, but it also comes with a ton of added pressure and complexity. The best source of information on freelancing that I have ever seen is DoubleYourFreelancing.

Free Guide to Becoming a Web Developer This amazing free guide walks you, step-by-step, through the learning process of becoming a professional web developer freebies.

For example, you may want to become financially successful but you don't know how to. How you do something is often as important as why you're doing it. Said Barry Schwartz, "Ninety percent of adults spend their working lives doing things they would rather not be doing at places they would rather not be. For the most part, these are intelligent people. The problem is, they have not yet found an effective means for achieving their desired ends. In other words, they are working jobs they hate because they don't know how to create a life doing what they love.

I have a consulting client who fits this model. Currently, he's on the schedule and prepared to work a job he's not passionate about until age 60 at which point he can finally do what he wants. The second question is: Is his current means effective at getting what he wants? He already knows his current "path" toward his goals is ineffective.

It keeps him working long hours when he wants more flexibility and freedom.

But there are costs to changing his life. Are you willing to give up what you currently have for what you truly want? Are the fears and anxieties involved in changing your life and relationships too much to deal with? What's crazy is, the life my client wants and is willing to wait until age 60 for is completely available right now! Yes, he'd have to confront some scary emotions, have some hard conversations, and make some adjustments to his lifestyle. Indeed, there would be "costs" involved. But what he wants is completely available, right now. The only true way to experience congruence and confidence in yourself is to consistently achieve your goals.

The process is simple, but difficult:. And when your life is in alignment, nothing can stop you. Everything in your life becomes a virtuous cycle. You'll develop the ability to achieve bigger and bigger goals at faster and faster speeds. When all your goals support and sustain each other, effectiveness is the natural outcome. Tony Robbins tells the story of being confronted by a homeless person on the street.

The man asked Tony if he had a quarter. Tony thought for a moment and responded, "Is that all you really want? Tony shrugged as he dug his hand into his pocket. He pulled out a quarter and held it in front of the man's face. Puzzled, the man took the quarter, stared at it for a while, looked back at Tony, and slowly walked away. Your life is a reflection of what you're willing to tolerate.

If you have dysfunction relationships, that's because you've tolerated dysfunctional relationships. If you struggle with money, that's because you tolerate not being financially free. Your life reflects your personal standards, or the standards of society which you bought-into. The beautiful thing is, you don't have to settle any longer. You can hold yourself and those around you to a higher standard.

But it must start with you. If you want more love in your life, you must give more love. People, and life in general, is a mirror pointing back exactly what you put out. The driver of every thought you think and decision you make are your emotions. Most likely, you approach your life hedonistically , where the primary objective is to maximize pleasure and avoid pain. Unfortunately, both ancient wisdom and recent research in positive psychology do not support a hedonistic approach to life.

To borrow the adage: If it's popular, it's wrong. Common wisdom is not common practice. Rather than acting on intuitive judgement, most people have conditioned themselves to act on impulse. Most people's lives are not consciously designed, but rather, are the response to external conditions. A branch of psychology known as Positive Psychology was born around the year At that time, there were only research papers on the subject of happiness.

Before that point, most psychologists were interested in psychological illness. In , there are now over 8, research papers on the subject of happiness. Although this shift in focus from exclusively studying pathology to studying personal growth has been extremely beneficial, many psychologists are frustrated with the scope on positive psychology research. These researchers believe the majority of research has been overly-simplistic and ignored important aspects of the human condition.

Wong, a renowned positive psychologist, the premise of positive psychological research has been that good emotions lead to good outcomes and negative emotions lead to negative outcomes. Essentially, the bulk of research in positive psychology has been rooted in a hedonistic perspective of life. Many psychologists believe this hedonistic approach to research has mostly been driven by marketing and money-making.

And why wouldn't it be? It's a sexy and appealing message. Unfortunately, the majority of research in the realm of positive psychology has remained oblivious to ancient wisdom and practical human experience. Thankfully, there is a movement occurring known as the Second Wave of Positive Psychology. The researchers involved in this new research movement are seeking to focus more accurately on what actually produces positive psychological outcomes.

Rather than being based on a hedonistic view of happiness which allows no space for negative emotions, the second wave of positive psychology is based on a eudaimonic view of happiness. This perspective embraces positive and negative emotions of life, seeing both as essential to optimal outcomes for individuals and societies. These feelings aren't necessarily enjoyable in the moment. However, unpleasant and even horrific emotional experiences often produce the most beautiful human outcomes. Being completely starved of food, many victims would gladly and graciously give their small portion of bread to those in need, being motivated by a purpose greater than themselves and by people other than themselves.

A eudaimonic approach to life is not based on indulgence and ease, but on having a deep sense of meaning and virtue in your life. Unfortunately, most people and society at large continues to embrace a hedonistic approach to life. The results aren't pretty. Self-obsession, a lack of conscious, and a lack of purpose. The pursuit of happiness and success end up getting in the way of those things.

If you're like most people, your life reflects your fears more than your dreams. Most people avoid their fears, and thus, are like a dog with an invisible shock collar. The moment you reach the boundaries of your comfort zone, you feel the "shock" of pain, and you've been conditioned to retreat the moment you feel that shock. These suppressed emotions are controlling your whole life. Avoiding unpleasant or painful emotions only compounds and perpetuates the problem. When you're willing to deal with the temporary shock, you are free to go in-and-out as you please.

With enough exposure, the shock-factor of reaching the boundaries of your invisible cage diminishes. Humans are extremely adaptable. We become desensitized and develop tolerances quickly. Many people have developed tolerances for stimulants and other drugs. You can develop a tolerance for being around toxic people. You can develop a tolerance and adapt to anything, even your fears. Purposefully doing this is what psychologists call systematic desensitization.

You can systematically desensitize yourself from feeling shock or fear related to your goals by continually exposing yourself to that fear. Eventually, that fear will become an apathy. Viktor Frankl discusses this concept in Man's Search for Meaning , when he tells of sleeping comfortably on small beds next to nine other people in the concentration camps. Said Frankl, "Yes, a man can get used to anything, but do not ask us how.

The apathy eventually became humor and ridiculousness. In the book, Spartan Up!

They continuously raise their expectations of what "need. In order to combat this, De Sena constantly resets or "re-calibrates" his frame of reference. He does this by running mile ultra marathons, doing Iron Man triathlons, and fasting. After running for 10 hours straight, lying on the cement is as soft as lying on your bed.

After fasting from food for 24 hours, natural and wholesome foods taste delicious. When you're used to waking up at 4: It's all about resetting your expectations. You can adapt to and develop tolerances to absolutely anything. According to sociological theory, our reality is, for the most part "socially constructed. For example, we may believe money is a real thing, when really it is just paper and metal. The paper and metal aren't inherently money. The money is a shared meaning or value we give the paper and metal.

Similarly, your identity is socially constructed by your interactions with other people and your reactions to the expectations of society. Once liberated from that caged existence, you'll enter a world of far greater possibilities. Of this, Michael Singer in his book, The Untethered Soul , has said, "When you go into the world of infinite space, you'll look back at the small house and wonder why you spent so much time in there.

Oddly, most people prefer the safety of their cage, and will even "fight to defend it. The Matrix is the box you've built around yourself to avoid reality. The only way out of the Matrix is to confront reality. You can only do this by exposing yourself directly to your fears and emotional problems.

Until you do this, you are living an illusion. Until you do this, you'll construct a pseudo-life to protect yourself from yourself. Spirituality begins outside your comfort zone. Said Jack Canfield, "Everything you want is on the opposite side of fear. Illness and continued pain, like back pain, is often bottled internal tension. It's an emotional problem that has become a physical problem. The roots are purely emotional.

Positive Affirmations - The Tricks of Using Affirmations to Transform Your Life (Practical Guide)

Fix the emotions and the body will heal itself. The body is a powerful machine. It's very nature is to rapidly heal itself. But your emotional inner-drama won't let it heal. One study tested people's responses to a virtual and placebo low-velocity car-accident. Interestingly, 20 percent of the participants in the study reported feeling physical symptoms related to the placebo car-accident, even though no biomechanical potential for injury existed.

These symptoms lasted weeks. These individuals all scored significantly higher on on the psychological scale of psychosomatic disorders, measured before the placebo rear-end collision. In other words, the emotional tension in these people used a placebo to create a physical problem. The people with normal levels of stress had a normal response to the placebo, nothing.

In his book, Healing Back Pain: The Mind Body Connection , Dr. According to Sarno, the individual has been completely removed from the equation. Now, doctors just look at and treat the body, with no respect to the emotional state of the patient. Sarno believes medications, massages, chiropractic, and even surgery are all placebos. For a moment, the body is temporarily "fixed.

The only way to a permanently pain-free life is to acknowledge that physical pain is primarily emotional. In most cases, the body has long-since healed. But the brain loops the trauma. My aunt Jane fits this description. Ever since, she hasn't been able to run.

However, she recently acknowledged her body had been healed for nearly 2 decades, and that her beliefs about her leg created an emotional block. Becoming aware of and believing her leg was healed, and that she was perpetuating an emotional problem led to an immediate healing of her leg. She can now run again pain-free. Your thoughts and emotions have a direct impact on your genetic expression.

However, what you do with your physical body also directly impacts your thoughts and emotions. The root of everything is how you feel about what you're doing. It's hard to feel powerful while slouching in a chair. It's also hard to feel healthy and sexy while eating junk food.

One reason for this is emotional stress. When you're subconsciously stressed-out due to making incongruent decisions, your body goes into a survival mode. Because everything is connected, when you begin making good decisions in one area, you can create a "virtuous cycle.

You'll begin to believe you can have the body and energy levels you want. This belief will translate into other areas of your life. Those are your options. The foods the Hartwig's recommend, based on loads of empirical data are as follows:. The foods the Hartwig's advise against except on an intentional occasion , are as follows:. For most people, these foods are inflammatory.

However, no two bodies are the same. Which is why they recommend avoiding these foods for 30 days straight, then re-integrating one at a time. You will quickly see which foods are toxic for your particular body. Human-beings have an embedded fight-or-flight reaction to threat. For most of human history, we were exposed to physical threats constantly. However, now that our physical environment is quite safe, our threats have shifted from external to internal. Now, rather than worrying about being killed by a tiger, you're worried about your self-esteem.

You're worried about what people think about you. You're worried about not being good enough. You're worried about offending other people. You're worried about failing. When your body is healthy, you don't think about it much. It just is, functioning properly. When a problem arises, rather than burying it deeper, you mend it. You get over it. In modern culture, people have radically unhealthy emotional lives. Most people can't take their attention off their emotions. They have a fixation with constantly feeling "okay. People can no longer speak openly without giving offense.

Even in close relationships, we need to be careful what we say. We may accidently touch someone's suppressed emotions. In our comfortable and medicated world, most of us have lost complete touch with reality. We live in a bubble. Rarely are we aware of the fact that we are on a planet rotating around the sun in the middle of infinite empty space.

Due to our narrow-mindedness, our emotions get thrown all-out-of-whack by cosmically insignificant things like a scratch on our car, or by someone saying something negative about us. When your emotions are healthy, little things don't throw you off anymore. You keep things in perspective. You're aware of your emotions, not enslaved by them.

Because most people have unhealthy suppressed emotions, they do everything they can to avoid those emotions. For example, you may avoid feeling lonely.
