All of us in life are guaranteed struggle. We all have adversities we have to overcome and none of us are invincible to that.
However the difference is in how you react to your adversities. If done correctly you can come out on top. If done incorrectly you allow life to crush you and squeeze your hopes and dreams until you don’t have them anymore.
Once you realize that someone took the same hand you’re complaining about and won with it, you’ll understand that it’s up to you and no one else to come out on top.
The part of the story that you’re mainly looking for might be, how do you go from struggling to working with A-List Celebrities?
Bijan Williams is a famous choreographer that has worked with the likes of McDonalds, Jay Z, Rihanna, Madonna and more.
However, he was never handed the silver spoon. Just like you and I he had struggles he needed to overcome on his journey. I interviewed him to get a sense of what someone at his level had to overcome in order to work with some of the biggest names in the world.
Overcoming Sheer Ignorance
You know the famous quote people say… “ignorance is bliss” that only works when it’s better not to know something. However, when you’re trying to succeed in a specific industry – ignorance will take you nowhere.
Before Bijan could ever work with the celebrities he had to dive deep into his work. Bijan didn’t know anything about the industry when he first started. In fact, Bijan was going to school to be a Doctor. He was a nerd in school and was majoring in chemical biology pre-med.
It wasn’t until he chose to go the untraditional route where he really found his calling. When he first started dancing people made fun of him. He just thought to be a dancer he needed to just move to the beat, but it’s a skill that just like anything you must master.
Aside from not knowing the craft he didn’t know anything about the industry. Hollywood is the type of place that if you want to succeed you have to know someone on the inside.
So being naive and ignorant to the skills needed in dance, entertainment, and the music was the biggest obstacle to overcome. Having that consistent practice and knowledge makes all the difference in how you move on stage. Even without that original skillset Bijan figured out that there is a specific route you can take to becoming a powerful performer, combine that with the belief system of knowing it was possible and abracadabra – Magic Is Made. The Rest is just history!
Dealing with Jealousy and Envy
If you live long enough, you’ll live through some form of this. Bijan was no different. When he dedicated himself to his craft and showed up with love and enthusiasm people naturally didn’t enjoy Bijan’s presence because he was someone that was achieving things that they had worked their whole lives for.
In fact, once he started moving up the ladder of clientele he was working with and the bigger projects he took – people in his circle started dismissing him. Bijan’s own agent cut him from the agency when Bijan booked his own project with his biggest client ever, becoming not just a talent on the roster but an Independent company in direct competition.
Instead of being happy for Bijan, they saw it as a sign of betrayal and cut him from the agency. Which meant Bijan was again all alone at this point.
There have been times where we’re all guilty of allowing our ego to ruin us. In Bijan’s case when he reached a certain level of success it’s happened so fast he noticed people still thought of him of the new kid and didn’t give him the credit he thought he deserved so he became his own boasting board, which as you know nobody enjoys! That was his big mistake, a perfect opportunity for growth and humility to achieve success and still remain grounded an personable.
Ego can cause a magnitude of internal confusion. After getting to a place of comfort where he had done a few jobs here and there, Bijan was mistakenly allowing himself to coast in business and in life and because of that, he stayed stagnant at one point. It wasn’t until he hit rock bottom and rose back up where he realized the power of understanding one’s self. The lesson here is to yes have gratitude for the past and always be in search of further expansion internally and also in your business.
How did Bijan finally get all these negatives in check well he studied some of the masters and entered into his own emotional intelligence programs. There he created His morning routines and meditation practices which keeps him grounded and also from allowing the outside world to pour in. With routines and contingencies in place, he’s able to fully be present and go after what he wants in life.

How to Beat the Odds in Life with “Your Favorite Online Trapper” Anthony Williams
Anthony Williams’ success is a classic story of falling on hard times and rising back up by reinventing himself. Before finally realizing his potential. From getting caught in one of the biggest marijuana busts to becoming one of the most promising and successful young entrepreneurs and economists. This young man has come a long way. At 24, Anthony Williams has achieved more than many of his age. His life story has been awe-inspiring, and it was only his determination and perseverance that he has allowed him to overcome all the difficulties that came his way and has become the man of influence and substance that he is today. Let’s take a closer look at his life and the struggles that he had to go through in a little detail.
Anthony Williams – An Eventful Life full of Struggles
Born in the twin cities St Paul- Minneapolis, Anthony was abandoned by his parents while he was still a kid. Raised amidst immense hardships by his grandmother, “Nanny,” he had seen all sorts of eventualities and difficulties coming through. Anthony recalls a police raid at his mom’s residence as his first memory since he was born. He then later lived in a Public Housing Project, called “The Rose” with his Nanny and his other siblings.
The harsh reality of life hit him hard when he and his family were kicked out of the rose when he was 17 and was rendered homeless. This was just before he was about to enter his senior year at high school. He would have perhaps perished in oblivion had one of his best friends who co-coincidentally also goes by the name of Anthony would not have helped him. Anthony, then moved into his friend’s house and lived there for a good five years till the age of 23.
While living with his now extended family, he had too little money to afford to go to a community college and hence had to drop out in less than two months of attending St. Paul Community College. He was forced into the world of drug dealing to make ends meet while working a job, but even that was barely enough for him to survive alongside his newly found family. The worst was about to come in 2017 when a Minnesota Police Patrol team intercepted a truck full of marijuana and had charged Anthony for possessing 50 kgs (nearly $2M worth) of it since he was also in the pick-up truck. He went to jail as well and had to fight a legal battle to beat the case against him. His good friend and an exemplary lawyer Daniel Repka helped him to win the case.
Having seen his life and struggles, let’s look at his success story as well.
Successes and Achievements
Anthony started with day trading in the Foreign Exchange Market initially and kept digging in the world of finance and banking, and after acquiring enough knowledge, he helped his mentor with improving his credit so that he could qualify to buy a Lamborghini SVJ. Since then, there has been no looking back, and he has been named as “The Numbers Guy” or “Your Favorite Online Trapper.”
At the age of 24, he has achieved quite a lot for any 24-year old. He has been successful in creating the first-ever hybrid company involving Finance and Education in Minnesota. His expert knowledge about numbers, money, and the financial markets has made him a sought after name by many independent Financial and Banking institutions. He is an A-list Board Certified Credit Consultant and is FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act), and FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) certified. Anthony has helped clients with institutions as well as the end customers with his expert consultant services. When wearing his suits, Anthony proudly wears his Star Achiever Award lapel pin that he received during his early days in business as a Network Marketer for his exemplary service.
Anthony Williams – The Man with a Vision
With all that said, Anthony makes it pretty clear that he is into this business to help others. Perhaps that is much to do with the deep-rooted pain he had gone through being financially weak in his teens. He envisions, creating a system where people understand finance and the importance of money and how to go about increasing one’s worth, value, and credit through means of teaching financial literacy and investing.
His vision is to continuously create a delightful client and student experience showing that human touch, love, and compassion towards people with their particular financial problems. His purpose is to not only provide solutions to them but also to make them feel the way nobody else can make them feel when handling the sensitive topic of money — your friend in the financial arena.
MD Azza Halim on The Future of Medicine
An anesthesiologist is a board-certified physician who has attained either a doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor osteopathic medicine (DO) degree and chosen to specialize in the field of anesthesiology.
These professionals are trained to safely administer anesthetics to induce a temporary loss of sensation or consciousness for the performance of a medical procedure. This involves a variety of drugs ranging from local numbing agents to general anesthesia.
Anesthesiologists are an integral part of the surgical team since their role involves patient preoperative clearance, intraoperative care as well as post operative recovery.
Dr. Halim’s medical training began at Northwestern University in Chicago. Dr. Halim did a research fellowship in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, she then went on to do her internship in internal medicine. Dr. Halim did her residency in anesthesiology, along with subspecialty training in critical care/trauma and pediatrics at Northwestern University.
We had a chance to speak with Dr. Azza Halim, who is a board-certified anesthesiologist and multi-speciality trained in aesthetic medicine to get her perspective on anti-aging treatment plans.
Dr. Halim says, the human skin is exposed to a variety of potentially damaging factors. Additionally, it was only recently that people began to understand the harm they caused their own skin. Even walking to and from homes and offices, in and out of stores and sitting in cars can lead to skin damage. No one is immune.
Skin damage is primarily visible as discoloration, pigmentation, actinic keratosis, fine lines and wrinkles. These symptoms develop at an individually defined age, depending on the client’s skin type. Everyone ages in a pattern and at a rate that is distinct. Historically, skin care professionals have looked to the Fitzpatrick Skin Type Classification system, as well as clients’ health, heredity, lifestyle and sun exposure for clues about how to determine treatment regimens.
That being said, Dr. Halim creates customized anti-aging treatment plans and beauty solutions, which are a major focus of the medical practice of Azza Halim, MD.
“I realize that one size does not fit all,” she explains. “I am a perfectionist. Even though I have worked in virtually every aspect of various treatment modalities from Botox® and fillers to lasers and non-invasive procedures, I take a balanced holistic approach in creating a customized plan to fit their needs.”
