Excuse Me, Do You Have Time?

NO, OF COURSE YOU DON’T!!! But wouldn’t it be nice if whenever someone asked you if you had time, you could just physically give them something and be on your way to doing something more interesting?

Time passes as discreetly as a fart in an elevator. And for the most part, people deal with it the same way, just grimace and try to ignore it’s existence until it’s gone. So with time in such high demand and so many things/people vying for our attention, what is the most effective use of time?

That’s the age old question brozilla. Almost as old as the question of the reason for our existence. Well, I can answer both of those for you right here in this 2 minute blog. (Glad you clicked on this one today huh?)

The way to capitalize on your time AND find the meaning for your existence is to…

CREATE

Throughout history, the people that felt the most fulfilled with their lives, took the present world and their conditions and created the world in their own image. They did it by jumping into an experience they could learn from and consistently executing a plan.

Now for you, it doesn’t have to be a personal experience, you can read or watch it through others. But just as long as you are learning something, then it’s worth your time.

The problem, however, is FEAR 

I see so many people scared to make any changes because they are afraid of what people with think of them, or they fool themselves into thinking they are fine where they are. And I get it, I was there, but I found that the way to happiness is not by grinding it out everyday and wasting time. That’s the hard way…no, there’s one simple question you should think to ask…

It took me from spinning my wheels to show people how much I was grinding (suffering) to living a life where I spend more time with everyone, while being more effective in doing what I love to help inspire people. That question?

What’s the truth?

It saves so much time with me telling myself stories about how I can’t do this, or I can’t do that. And I know it can help you too.

I encourage you to keep searching for your truth it’s the only thing that will truly set you free.

How To Win More Than The Lottery

Want to make more money? I’m gonna make this as simple as possible today. Invest in yourself. You have to learn more than what you learned in school. Learn more than what you were taught when you first started your job. Learn more than you learned yesterday.

Invest in your systems of doing things and you will find that not only will they get easier, but more profitable. The thing is that so many people whine, cry, and complain, but all they do is put their money into things that rust, rot, and depreciate. 

It’s impossible to make any money if all you’re doing is throwing your money into consumer goods. Sure you have to eat, but if you aren’t balling, why you eating that Kobe steak and lobster??

I get it, you deserve nice things and who knows when you’re gonna go so live it up right? But the thing is, if you live everyday like that , then you will soon be grinding all day just to make up for past mistakes.

Life shouldn’t be about grinding everyday either. You can’t grind your way to success, you’ll burn out. Then you’ll end up needing more time to recover and you’ll find that you’re continually sprinting, stopping, then playing catch-up.

It’s your life, but there is a way you can live it so that you will always be in line with your potential and it starts with self education and ends with mentors/coaches.

That’s really all I got for you today. If you want to chat more about this jump into the chat with my private Facebook group Project SELFFY it’s a great way to discover your true potential and talk to others who are headed the same direction you are…UP!

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…
