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…


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…

“Not” Good Enough

I admit, simply writing those words in the title of this here 
Letter/email/infotainment piece really   gives me a bit of an
Arousal factor that makes my spine and maybe something else
A little lower tingle just a little. 
When I used to hear those words, I would go to a really dark place
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been called some pretty nasty things
But for some reason, when someone said I was not good enough 
I would always get triggered.
But after awhile, I don’t know if it’s age, or you just start caring less
Or both
But I eventually came to the conclusion that the more you try to be
Good enough for everybody, the less you are good enough for somebody.
But the problem is that most of us don’t end up realizing that fact until 
You’ve banged your head up against the wall over 100 times trying to get 
Everyone to like you only to eventually take a brief moment to look around
To everyone else doing exactly the same…

When things are down, we all need someone to look up to. 

And I apparently became that person to a young 20 year old in West Philly

About 4 months ago. 

I met this young lad a little while back.

He actually stopped me at a stop light while he was standing

In front of a store in West Philly know for drug deals. 

He tells me a little about himself and he tells me that he sees

That I might be able to help him “get out of the hood” as he said.

So in one of our first meetings, we talked about “alternative sources of income”

And we talked about it for a few months after that until he came up with an idea

Fast forward 4 months later

That kid standing on the corner trying to sell dreams 

To pay rent is now taking his first trip on a plane

To network in ways that he never thought possible 

I think back to when he first asked me to mentor him.

He confessed to me many times that he didn’t think he was good enough.

Hell man, I thought a few times with him, I’m not good enough

Everyone can relate to feeling like you’re not good enough.

But the most important thing you can take from this message is

That sometimes it’s better to at least be “not good enough” 

Than to suck so bad that your efforts aren’t even recognized. 

Jerry “good enough” Washington

P.S. It’s really important to recognize that we all have feelings of 

Inadequacy in some way or another at any given time. 

What  I’d like you to consider is that, sometimes others will say

You aren’t good enough, but you have to appreciate that by giving you their attention

They’ve just shown you it just might be that

You aren’t good enough…yet. Talk soon…

Chopped And BBQ’d

I had the rare opportunity of watching t.v. yesterday and I was watching this cooking show called Chopped

It was a marathon so I caught it half way through, picked a couple of favorites and rode them out to the championship round

One of my favorites on this “Grill Masters” edition was this cowboy named Kent.
This guy was a straight up cowboy and made you fall in love with him, because even though there were some ingredients that he had never heard of, he always prepared them the best way he could by tasting a bit before it was cooked and the judges loved his dishes every time.

After a few hours they showed him in the championship round against a seasoned (and verrry well fed) chef well versed in grill cooking.

Kent was doing well with his method of experimentation then using past experience to help him.
Unfortunately, he made a huge error in assuming that green plantains taste like what they look like (bananas)…they don’t…

Kent pretty much lost because of that decision and it brings up a pretty good lesson for you and I.

When you are in a difficult situation, it’s tough not to want to handle it the way you always have, but unfortunately for you (and Kent) it doesn’t work that way all the time

You see doodle bug, no one knows everything and even I turn to my advisors when I have pressing issues that I just can’t mange on my own

So why is it that so many people same the mistake as Kent?

Call it pride,
Maybe ego,
Or maybe even they don’t want to admit the issue is as serious as it is.

Either way the key is, no one
And I mean NO ONE can succeed on their own without a little help

My program can help you to win the championship round to your health.
The prize?
A longer more fulfilling life

If you’re ready to get cooking on that, I urge you to consider
