Man, I don’t want this to come off the wrong way, but there are some people in this world that have some real balls to say and do the things they do. I’m talking about those that feel like that they are a pro because they read a book or have a few years experience in a certain field.
Oh shizzz man I think I need a hug cuz I’m feeling some type of way about what I’m about to say. I fucked up…Big Time. Like for realz broham. You see, brothalemieu, a few weeks back, I thought I was doing the world a service by hosting a seminar about stepping your game up with motivation and inspiration. I thought, hey I gotta start somewhere right? So why not start here, during the midst of my gym opening??
Wrong answer for so many reasons.
There are so many “(k)no(w) it alls out there that honestly when you look out into the world it’s just a see of debutants that have just a little bit of knowledge on one subject and then all of a sudden, seem to know everything about everything and on Saturday, July the 8th 2017 I joined the ranks of the idiotic debutants….
What am I ranting about here? Well to be honest, while I understand that I know that in regards to motivation, I have “it,” I have to say that at this moment I am not qualified to teach people how they may find it within themselves. I bought into the hype of the underqualified life coaches that believe that the key to helping anyone is simply a few quotes from history’s greats and a good motivational speech about achieving greatness.
It really isn’t that simple and the fact that there are so many people out there making money doing that very same thing is a little sickening. I, at least take comfort in the fact that I didn’t charge anyone to attend the seminar. But, in the grand scheme of things, you can see how this is a problem.
There are so many people out there that buy into their own hype. They read a book or two and then all of a sudden everything lines up and they find the reason for everything based on those few paragraphs they found that they can apply to their own issues. I get it, but I for one will say that I recognize now that the better solution is to start a conversation.
So…I invite you to share any issues that you may have in regards to family, fitness, fun, or fulfillment so that we can explore them together. I don’t want to be the “expert,” but I do hope to facilitate an intriguing conversation that may eventually lead to both of us understanding a little more about ourselves and the world around us.
So whadya say? You in? Reply below…

P.S. I regret NOTHING ever. It’s not like I’m some crazy psychopath that just does whatever and has no remorse. I’m normal just like you and I make some misjudgments, but honestly, the thing about living your life your way is that you can grow to accept that sometimes things don’t work out. It’s when you’re honest with yourself that you can actually reap the rewards of your mistakes and find the hidden seed of equivalent success. Talk soon…
