How to Be Remarkable

 

THE WHY

Don’t you love meeting remarkable people?

You know, the kind of person that you exchange a few sentences with and immediately know you’ll be inspired by. You tell your friends about them later, not sure exactly what it was about them that impressed you so much.

I make an effort to surround myself with this kind of person because I’ve gained so much from them in the past. Just by living their lives they make me work harder and push myself to achieve more, to be happier, to live a fuller, richer life.

THE CONTENT

Over the years I’ve picked up a lot of useful pieces of advice from these people, while at the same time observing and trying to figure out what makes them tick. I’ve worked to apply many of these same lessons to my own life and have seen very positive changes as a result.

I wrote this book to share some of these tidbits of knowledge with everyone because I firmly believe that if the world has more inspiring, ambitious and remarkable people we’ll all be a lot better off.

You guys are really remarkable!

  12. I’m baaaaaack!… Congratz on the book! Again…

    I just finished reading it. Very interesting topics and very helpful informations (and the list of contacts is something I will be grateful forever, many thanks for this one).

    Also you may have given me the best tool to “wake up” my brother from his not so hot path. Really, thanks for this.

  15. Another way to be remarkable: pay attention to your dress. Are you clothes properly fitted? Do you know what styles look good on you? Do you know what colors look good on you? Are you familiar with the dress codes of the country you are living in?

    Dressing is one of the few areas where we can exert 100% control over our choices. Too many Americans simply relinquish that control to myths. “I can’t look good on a budget!” “I’m too X to look good in clothes.”

    Proper attention to your personal clothing style exudes self-respect, but also respect for others.

    Fantastic job on the new book.

    Take care,
    Jay

  18. I just want to say I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the response to this eBook. I knew that people wanted to hear about this topic because I’d been asked time and time again, but after having about 5,000 people download the book in the first 24 hours I’m thinking there might be even more to this than mere curiosity.

    It’s an international fascination! More and more people are able to make themselves visible in a crowded social marketplace by simply DOING something remarkable, and I’m hoping that enough people will derive something from the book – be it information, inspiration or connections – to help them take the next step toward whatever it is they want to achieve.

    Thanks a million to everyone who has helped promote the book, passing it on to friends, retweeting, Stumbling, etc; you folks have really made this into a huge success and I’m eternally grateful for your support!

    Another special thanks to the good people listed at the very bottom of the post who took the time to donate their own thoughts and stories to the book. These varying perspectives added much-needed flavor and insight to the book and I’m certain it wouldn’t be doing nearly as well as it is without their input. Check out their respective sites and projects to find out more about what their up to! There’s a reason I asked them to help me out!

    If you haven’t already, you can subscribe to my RSS feed or newsletter in the top right corner of the page. That way you’ll get hearty, delicious Exile Lifestyle information (including updates when I release the NEXT eBook!) when it becomes available.

    You’re the ones that make this whole project worthwhile! Thanks for your continued support, and I look forward to making contact with more of you in the future! colin (at) exilelifestyle.com if you want to drop me a line!

  42. Hi. Looks great but there is a bit of a discrepancy. On this page it says that it’s a free ebook, but when you go to download, the price is $5. The other two have broken links as well. Incidentally, I love your site.

  44. Hey JD-

    Will check on the broken links. With the $5, you can enter any amount you want (just entered a small arbitrary price, as some people had asked for a way to give a donation because they enjoyed the ebook).

    Sorry for the confusion!
