One of the most difficult decisions in your life is when you decide that enough is enough. That it’s time for a change in your life. Time to draw a line in the sand, and never look back.
In this video, I talk about the significance of drawing a line in the sand and making a decision. Making the decision that who you are isn’t necessarily who you want to be.
But you can’t become the person you want to be until you make the decision to become that person.
At any moment in your life, you can make the choice to become the person you’ve always wanted to be. To get there, you’ll need to start surrounding yourself with like-minded people.
Joining masterminds, or groups of people who want the same thing as you will help. You can just keep doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, that’s not how it works.
You alone have the power to decide this.
If you’d like to surround yourself with like-minded people, we’d love to have you join our community.

Did you know that you can figure out exactly what you want out of life by asking yourself 3 simple questions?
It’s crazy to think about to be honest… That everything you’ve ever wanted can be broken down into 3 questions.
– This is like when you were a kid and someone asked you what you wanted to be when you grew up… and you said an astronaut, or a pro athlete, or a unicorn trainer.
– Think about what you would love to be able to answer when someone asked you that question.
– That is where your attention should go.
– By far one of the greatest things about being alive in today’s day and age is that an airplane can get us anywhere we want in the world, in 48 hours or less. Yeah, I know that it’s not that easy…
– But shut that part of your brain down for a minute and bear with me.
– It is entirely possible for you to go to an airport and fly somewhere right now, and figure it all out. This wasn’t always possible. Hell, right now you can drive someplace and get there in 24 hours. You can drive from NY to Florida in less than 24 hours. (I’ve done it)
– Now this is the tough part. Not many people know this, because they have never taken the time to actually ask themselves.
– So, right now think about what you would do if money was no object to you. (the link there goes to an incredible video about what you would do if money was no issue)
– Think about the stuff you would do every day. Would you work inside? How about outside? Would you do something that required your mind or your body like working with animals?
– Seriously, think about this stuff. There’s jobs and businesses that already pay people to do these things. You can get paid to do pretty much anything you can imagine.
Ever thought about Fear and what it actually means when you are “fearful” of something?
Honestly, if you live in the United States of America or another first world country, we’ve had it pretty easy. Think about this for just a moment. You could have been born in Cambodia during the Cambodian genocide, between 1975 and 1979, in which an estimated 1.5 to 3 million Cambodians died or were killed by the regime.
Could have been just a few years after that in Zimbabwe. The Gukurahundi was a series of massacres of Ndebele civilians carried out by the Zimbabwe National Army from early 1983 to late 1987.
I was born in the USA in 1987, but if my family happened to have lived in Zimbabwe during that time period there is a chance I wouldn’t even be here…
That’s just the truth of how it is. I’ve been extremely blessed to have lived my life the way I have.
Right there are two separate instances where the meaning of FEAR would have been a lot more different to me if I happened to have been in either of those areas.
So for those of us who were lucky enough to have the opportunities in our lives, I put together this video that talks about overcoming fear.
In the video, you’ll see that I spoke about 2 instances where I addressed my fear head on.
One of them was when I did a cage free shark-dive in the Bahamas to address my fear of sharks. You can watch that video below or read more about it in this post about the Stuart’s Cove Shark Dive:
and the other was recently when I decided to run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. Both of those experiences were things that I was fairly terrified of. They were things that I thought “oh man that would be so cool to do“, and I committed to doing them.
The thing is, I could have easily backed out each time… and you would have had no idea I even cared to do these things.
I did them not because I wanted to brag about them, but let’s be honest, I do brag about them… to me it’s so damn cool that I did these things and I’m super proud of them. I did them because they scared me… and when things scare me, it’s usually a sign that I needed to face my fear head on.
What I’d love for you to do now (you don’t need to tell anyone) is to think about something you have been scared to do, but something that has always been of interest to you.
Write it down. Yes, I know. You’re probably on your phone or reading this on your laptop… but I want this to actually help you.
Take out that piece of paper and a pen and write down something you’re scared to do and take a look at it. Have people done it before safely? Is it an irrational fear that you are sure is irrational? Is it something you’ve been fearful of for as long as you can remember?
(that last one was me and sharks… I mean… JAWS.)
But now that it’s written down. It still might be scary. But think about it this way, it’s just writing on a piece of paper at this stage. It’s not like a shark suddenly appeared as soon as you wrote that down and is biting your head off. Right now in your hand, you hold your fear.
That means you’ve already conquered it in one way. You’ve addressed that it is there, and that you can see it and kind of feel it.
Yeah yeah, it isn’t actually happening but bear with me for a minute.
Now that you see this activity or whatever it is, you can hop onto google and type it in to look up some stats. Maybe its that you’re scared of flying? You could look up how many people fly each year. That number is incredible. Maybe its moving to a new city (I’ve done this more times than I can count). Maybe it’s getting on the phone to make a call to someone you lost contact with over the years. We all have different things.
The simple fact that you wrote it down is awesome by the way. Most people don’t do it… that’s why most people never live to their full potential, but I know you’re different.
The next thing, if you’re crazy enough to give it a try, is to look up how you can do whatever it is you are scared of. If it’s flying, hop onto a travel site and plan a trip. Go through the process of picking a destination, a date and thinking what it will be like at this new place. Going through the website doesn’t mean you have to board the plane. You don’t even have to buy the ticket!
Going through the motions of setting up and planning to do the thing will make a shift happen in your mind. You’ll probably have that “oh shit” moment, where it becomes real. Stay with that feeling, get comfortable with it. I know you’ve seen that picture where it shows your comfort zone and how you’re supposed to do stuff outside of your comfort zone…
this feeling you’re having right now… that’s what it’s like outside of your comfort zone. It feels a little weird, doesn’t it? The good news is you’ll get more comfortable with the feeling the more you do these things… and you didn’t have to leave the house to do it!
Okay so now that you’ve done this… you have done it, right?
Once you’re good and ready and feeling all nervous… it’s time TO DO THE THING. Set a plan to do something towards it within the next 30 days.
Even scarier, right?
Don’t worry, it’ll be fine. You’ve got this. You are now someone who is comfortable in the uncomfortable. You’re a boss.
The next step is to simply do the thing. Yep, just like Nike says. Just Do It.
Creating value is one of the topics that’s a top discussion point when speaking with Entrepreneurs.
The problem is that many people never really explain what value is, and how to create it. In this video, I share with you what value is and how to create value.
Today I want to share with you something that’s known as the “money grab”…. and it’s one of my all-time favorite activities to do in order to increase wealth consciousness.
CAUTION: You’ll look like a fool to onlookers.
If you’re one of my good friends, I’ve most likely made you do the money grab. I actually made my brother do it one of the days we were hiking in St. John, US Virgin Islands, earlier this year… except it was extremely hot and the “grabs” were for a breeze to come off the water and cool us down.
The money grab is a very simple activity. It doesn’t require anything. Except well… to be awake.
The whole idea is simple. Think about the number of transactions that happen every single minute around the world. People are at the grocery store buying milk, people are buying clothes on different websites, people are buying… well, you get it.
The money from these purchases isn’t being shipped in one of those crazy armored cars that are loaded with money (like in those cool bank robber movies). That would be insane.
Imagine if for every $5 purchase someone made on their phone, an armored vehicle came and picked up the money to move it to someone else’s account. That would be a funny scene… although crazy expensive in day-to-day life. the good news is that with technology, this money is constantly flowing through around.
This activity allows you to sort of tap into it. Now I’m not saying doing this is going to instantly put money in your pocket… or that you’re stealing money from these transactions. You’re simply raising your level of awareness to it happening… So whenever your bank account is at a number that pisses you off, remember that the money is constantly flowing around you… you just have to find a way to step into it.
