Respect The Process

Man, I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like it. I was mentally in a place that said I’m OK, but in all reality, everything indicated otherwise.

So I did what your average person never thinks to do…

SOMETHING ABOUT IT

I know, I know. You’re probably saying that I’m a jerk for saying that, but honestly Brozilla, it’s true.

How do I know it’s true? Well, sugar lips, I was one of those people that did nothing about my situation up until recently. So like I said earlier, I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like it.

But you know what, most people tolerate it. That’s why reality t.v is so big nowadays, people have gotten so disengaged with their own lives that they have resigned themselves to live in this weird fantasy world.

But I get it though, but there is a way out of that fantasy world. There is a way to wake up. And that way is actually so simple that you’ve probably dismissed it over 100 times in the last week alone.

Before what I tell what it is, however, let me share something with you. There was a guy named Albert Einstein who learned a lot from a guy named Max Talmy. Not sure where I’m going with this? Ok, how about this one: There was a guy named Socrates who learned from a guy named Aristotle…actually how about this recent one: Bill Gates learned from a guy named Warren Buffet.

You get the theme here? These greats never did it on their own. There were other greats that helped to guide these legends along the way.

There was a time when I was thinking that I could do it on my own. All I needed was to get a college degree, just pay off my student loans and I’d be free. Well, that wasn’t exactly how it worked, but I do have to say that I learned a lot along the way and one important thing I learned is that I needed to look for help if I was gonna be successful.

And I found a lot of fakers, but I eventually stumbled upon a few mentors that taught me the value of self-education as well as the importance of surrounding myself with as many people that had the same mindset I wanted.

You see brotein shake, you don’t have always to do what everyone else is doing. Especially, if you don’t want to be going through what everyone else is going through. It’s as simple as finding a good group (company) that has the same ideals of success as you do.

Some people call it mentoring, some coaching, whatever makes you feel comfortable. But before I go, I want you to consider this: If Albert Einstein, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Gandhi, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk…should I go on? If all those people needed (multiple) coaches/mentors to get them to where they are, shouldn’t you as well?

When you are ready to join a mastermind group that can help support you in reaching your goals, give me a shout here.

P.S. I don’t claim to be Phil Jackson, or Aristotle, or even Bill Campell (mentored Steve Jobs) But I do know that I’ve helped to inspire a ton of people to take action on what they believe to be their full potential and I help them to find more. It’s not hard, it just takes a little waking up sometimes and I’m ready to help so if you’re ready to be helped contact me directly here. Talk soon…

You Only Have Perspective

As a military brat, I’ve been privy to a lot of things that civilians might not necessary be exposed to, but access to the best mental health professionals is not one you would think of immediately.

 

But when you think about it, with all those families moving and wars being fought you gotta talk to someone right???

 

Well, before I moved up to Alaska to finish off high school, I had talked to one of those aforementioned health professionals and the advice I got is probably some of the most useful advice I’ve gotten to this day. In fact, it’s so useful that I’m kind of ashamed that I haven’t revealed this sooner as many of my clients and friends could use this advice with their own families.

 

You see there are many people that experience pain from not being present. If you don’t know what I mean, consider this: you’re somewhere swimming in a beautiful ocean, but you can’t stop wondering if you left the iron on at home. Presence is key to understanding your feelings and enjoying the moment.

 

You might relate to this if you’ve got a family but also have a job. For some, it’s a constant juggling act both physically and emotional as it pertains to spending time at work or with your family.

 

But here’s the answer! If you’ve ever beat yourself up or feel guilty about leaving either work or home you’re gonna wanna read this life “hack.”

 

The thing is that when you are feeling guilty, you cut yourself off from any possibility of change. It’s with that possibility you can feel remorse and actually have the ability to go back and observe your feelings so that you can think of ways you can communicate them.

 

And here’s the real world application. As I was moving up to Alaska I had this terrible feeling in the pit of my stomach that wasn’t relieved until I actually told my friends, family, and anyone who would listen, that I didn’t want to move and that I truly had fun getting to know them.

 

That was it, that’s all it takes brozilla. Don’t push your feelings down, because they never get dealt with. All that causes is anxiety that feeds guilt. And that guilt goes on to feed more anxiety.

 

Keep those feelings on the surface. Be aware of them, express them and let people know because they might be feeling the same thing and you just might turn out to be a hero because everyone else was thinking the same thing, but didn’t have the wherewithal to speak up.

 

So in short, be a hero by being aware of your own feelings and making it a priority to express them.

P.S. Tell your family and friends that you love them at any and every possibility. Because you can’t come back from guilt, but you can always change your feelings about remorse. Talk soon…

 

Grinding It Out

Was hanging with a few old chums out in the D.C. area this weekend.

I wasn’t really expecting to spend the night, but they twisted my arm

By offering to put me up in the hotel room  that is the guest bedroom.
What really amazed me, besides their electric fireplace

Was the fact that they had a pretty nice collection of

Movies due to their investment in pretty much every

Streaming service known to man.
But look, I watched the coolest movie about this guy named Ray A. Kroc

You may know him as the founder of what we know as McDonald’s Ltd.
Ray went through a lot to ensure that he could cement his legacy and

Build his restaurants all over the world.
There is one very important take away from that movie that this self made

Billionaire so eloquently demonstrated time and time again in his efforts

In amassing his burger empire….

 

Throughout his struggles to find wealth, he loses some pretty important things.

He loses his wife, many of his friends, and indirectly caused someone to die.

 

Dood, hustling is one thing, but when you are starting to affect people negatively

Then you might be doing it for the wrong reasons.

 

I’ll have you consider that there is more to life than just money.

I mean money is great and all, but you can’t make out with it.

You can’t take it for long walks on the beach

You won’t increase your spiritual awareness with it

And it’s not gonna sit down and play board games with ya.

 

Things aren’t always what they seem with happiness and money.

Think today if someone said they would give you 500 million dollars

Would you be willing to give up ever having fun with your friends?

Would you give up the potential for ever having a

Solid relationship outside of business?

Would you drink yourself to death after you had amassed that fortune?

 

The good life is more than just building up your fortune or

Increasing your friend count on Flakebook and Twatter.

 

There are many aspects to happiness in life, but I’ve cut them down to four

“F’s” of  very simple aspects of living the good life.

Fun

Fitness

Finance and

Fulfillment

 

You can think of them like intertwined support structures for your life

When you build one up, you have to build the others up as well or else you

Have an unstable structure that is bound to eventually fall.

 

It’s simple but not easy broham and I can teach you how to lead a stable life

That keeps all those structures up for you.

P.S. I like hamburgers…just not from McDonald’s but I do respect that work

That went into creating that empire. I would like you to comment on something that

You’ve put hard work into and what it got you. Talk soon…
