You’re The Best

It’s not every day that you have someone actually trying to put the attention right back on you, but I want to you to stop for a second and put your hand over your heart. You feel that there? It’s called purpose.

 

It’s your purpose that pumps through your heart and literally gets you out of bed. I want you to have a real cause that gets you amped up and ready to focus on what’s important…you.

 

You see, what most people don’t realize is that in today’s world of on-demand television programming and social media, we’re pretty much always distracted from our own life. I don’t want to be part of that distraction, however. Instead, I’d like to help you get “undistracted.”

 

So how do you shift from distracted to impactful? Easy. Use simple reminders.

 

I don’t have time to go into everything that I do to help myself and others stay focused on the important things in life, but I’ll leave you with this one hint today.

 

COMMIT TO YOUR DREAMS

 

I would have you consider that the easiest way to go about that is to write down your goals.

 

Over a year ago, I wrote down on a sheet of paper that I put on my bathroom mirror that I will do more to help people. I also added in that I would make 6 figures doing it (and I believed it). I started trying to find different ways to help people and boom, 6 in the bank.

 

It’s simple, but not easy. Believe me, if it were easy everyone would be doing it. Not everyone can stay committed and there are a few that don’t even know where to start. I was both those people, but it wasn’t until I stopped trying to do it on my own that I came across the right mentors and supportive people to help me turn things around.

 

I would like to return the favor out into the world so, if you would like help getting started on achieving your goals and maintaining a real purpose that literally will have you excited to get out of bed every morning, contact me.

P.S. I’m a fan of meditation as well. Getting in touch with the real you and your deepest desires is something that you don’t just come up with sitting on the couch watching t.v. It takes a little work to get all those distractions and unexpressed emotions out of your head.  For more on my proven mediation method that I teach to my clients click the link here to one of my previous posts about meditation. So apply named: How To Meditate. Talk soon…

 

The Power Of Freedom

What is freedom really? Many search for freedom by gaining knowledge and skills they can add to their resume, however, they find themselves crippled by the debt that they had to acquire to fund those skills.

 

They then go into jobs that they hate, but have to take because they need to make money.  Only to come home to sedate with booze or copious amounts of television programming.

 

I get it, because I was that dude. I paid a ton for college, but I can’t say that I’m in the same field I went to school for. Don’t get me wrong, I greatly value the experience, but at the end of the day, I know people that didn’t go to school and also had similarly valuable experiences AND didn’t have to start out their careers in serious debt.

 

I started off as a lower middle-class kid aspiring to do something great. I had a dream of helping a lot of people but ended up living lower class for almost a decade, staying in basements, cars, and storage sheds. (Don’t tell my parents, they’d freak!) Just so I could achieve that dream.

 

Life is a lot different for me now of course, but I just can’t help, but sometimes think. Who or what am I missing?

 

You see Brosephine Baker, I can tell you from my experience that life is all about choices. You are not forced to do anything you don’t want to do on any given day. You are not FORCED to distance yourself from true fulfillment every day. It’s a choice.

 

Sure some may say that if you’re ignorant of anything else, then it’s not really a choice. But I would have you consider this…

 

We were all born with an imagination. We can all dream. It is a matter of you making the choice to take action on them or continue to do the same thing that you’ve always done.

 

Again, I get it, change is difficult. I just gave up something (boot camp training) that I love that I’ve been doing for 10 years. It was difficult but at the end of the day, I don’t want time to be the deciding factor on whether I should continue to do something or not.

 

When you think about it, all we are all looking for is the freedom of choice. We are all striving for it in our own way.

 

Whatever your way of striving for freedom is, I want you to tell me. Leave in the comment section below, or you can shoot an email directly to me here: Get In Touch

 

Jerry “multiple choice” Washington

 

P.S. I hate to sound like I’m poo pooing school and that it was the cause of my troubles. At the end of the day, those were choices too. I could have continued to stay with my degree and worked a corporate job that I hated. It wasn’t for me, but I’m not saying it shouldn’t be for you. Many people have graduated and gone on to live VERY comfortable lives. I guess I just chose to take the scenic route. What’s most important is that you define success for yourself and make decisions every day that will get you closer to that vision. Talk soon…

The Past Is History…

Seriously, think about this…

100 years ago, we didn’t have

Computers, cell phones, cars

Let alone computers that hook up

To our cell phones in our cars.
It’s funny to think about how

Much has happened in such a short

Amount of time, all because of the

Sharing of information and knowledge.
Used to be a time when a high speed

Information connection was a guy on a

Horse yelling the “Red Coats are Coming”
Now we get pissed if our reality t.v shows

Buffer when we’re watching them On Demand.
Where am I going with this?

Where are WE going with this??
Our world is changing everyday.

In fact, it’s been changing since the beginning

When our ancestors roamed the plains in

Furs and pelts.
The only way you can survive and thrive

Is to adapt to the world around you

Like your ancestors did so many years ago.
Everything you do communicates what you

Hope the world to see from you.

But what do you see?

Do you see your past?

Do you see your failures
Your disappointments
Betrayals

Or do you see something else?
I personally see a world where we clearly

Communicate the desire to be heard

To share our story without fear.
I know you share the same vision

That’s why you’re here. Comment

Below with what you think these

First 100 years will bring to you,

This country, and even this planet.

P.S. So many people walk around

In fear that people will find them out

When sometimes they don’t even

Know who they really are themselves.
I would like to invite you to stop letting

Fear be guide long enough so that you can
