What’s Stopping You?

I want to first thank you for reading.

By taking the time out of your day to

Learn about how you can make a real

Impact in the world, it shows that

You are ready to do something more

Than what you are currently doing.


“What’s stopping you?”

That’s the question I bet everyone has

Had roll around in their mind. 

Should I switch lanes?

Should I talk to that person?

Am I good enough to…?



Yeah, you know what I’m talking about

But then there’s the big one’s that we 

Really notice.

You know, those life changing decisions


For me it was chewing tobacco. 

It may be something completely different for you

But it all really boils down to fear. 


What you have to understand is that 

You are screwing yourself when you

Start to believe the stories that your mind

Makes up. 


It’s not about being braver than other people

It’s not about being fearless or even about

Running w/ team #nosleep to show how

“Dedicated” you’re being to be productive.


It all boils down to one question

What’s stopping you…

What makes us happier than anything in the world?

Okay not mom’s meatloaf or mac and cheese from

Max Brenner’s…it’s truth.


The truth is what sets us apart from the animals

It’s our search for it that both eludes us and

Brings us joy.


So it just makes sense that whenever you are

Confronted with a fear and the stories start to

Fly around in your head you stop and think

Is it true?”


Are the stories in your head true?


That search for the truth in our thoughts and

Behaviors, is the very foundation of the pursuit

Of the good life and it’s how you can also find

Your own personal truth.


I invite you to ask honestly ask yourself

What’s stopping you today.

Begin right now to find the answers that lead

You towards happiness and fulfillment

P.S. There is so much more I want to say on this

But honestly a lot of people are…ehem…afraid to

Talk about what they are afraid of. And I get that.

It took me years to admit I had an addiction. But

The key to getting anywhere in finding your truth

Is to feel safe and have trust in your environment.

Two things that you can safely say that you will

Find in my private Facebook group

Project SELFFY.


I would like to invite you to join the conversation

With a group that really believes that there is

More to life than just daily Tupperware

Containers of chicken and broccoli.

Click here to be a part of the conversation.

Talk soon…

Yo Check This!

Ha! This is an absolute off the top of my head

Unedited no delete post.


Yup, just going off the top of the head and publishing

Some people say that it’s not a great idea to just say

Whatever is on your mind, but you know what broham?

I beg to differ.


You see the thing is that the reason why you, your brother,

Your asunt, your best friends and yes, sometimes me as well

Feel like you can’t be free, is because well, myfriend (oops first mistake)

You can’t expect to be a part of society and then also live outside

Of it!!


Yeah this may sound like ramblings, but I bet you have these same

Voices that talk to you throughout the day

Saying that you can’t do this

Or you can’t do that


Because someone will stop reading your stuff?

Because they’ll look at you funny when you look at them and say hi?


I get it, we all have a need to fit in, we’re social creatures

But at the same time, why don’t we also try to work more on the social

Part and less on the creature part…

I don’t know what I’m saying here.


Like I said this is unedited writing straight from my brain through my

Fingers and to your eyes. It’s my contribution to you, it may not be much

(Just a little time I spose) But maybe I can make it up to you by leaving you

With a thought for the rest of the day…


If you yes you, not in the general sense, but like YOU, YOU.

If YOU did everything you could to achieve your goals today

Would you be happy?

If you did everything to be happy would you be free?



Something I htink about (dammit nother mistake) all the time

And invite you to talk about it with me if it ever crosses your mind.


I’m not looking for your money, just a conversation.

Maybe a little enlightenment, perspective if you will from you

The reader and human. Being. (that was on purpose, but don’t know

If that’ll work)


NE who, broseph, what I’m really saying here is that I believe that

There are leaders and there are followers, but at the end of the day

It doesn’t matter which one you are, it just matters that you are

Heading on the right path and only you can decide whether that

Path is right or if you will be the leader or follower along that path.


Thank you for your time. I’m sure there is a coherent message in

There somewhere. I challenge you to find it as I do everyday.

P.S. I realize that it’s a faux paux to not put out your best work.

And I also understand that I might lose some people

(If I haven’t already) But I like to think that there are some

People out there that might be a little curious as to how a daily

Blogger makes the sausage, so to speak.


This is literally my creative process…A stream of consciousness

Rant a bit of editing and viola you’ve got yourself a daily post.

I really do appreciate you reading so far and if you’d like to see

The cleaner, edited versions of these here pieces of “infotainment”

I would encourage you to check back tomorrow…or, OR, you could

Be a part of my inner circle of buddies that are talking about how

We all can be a better part of the planet. Check us out on Facebook
