Become Your Own Role Model

I came across this quote:

Beginning today, set an intention and a relentless focus on living your life as the greatest person you can be, in all situations. Demand that you demonstrate a strength of character in such a way that you find pride in who you are, and that others see you as a role model.

in the book The Charge by Brendon Burchard and had to share it.

In this video I talk about becoming your own personal role model and why it’s important to do things that others can look up to.

Find Good Role Models

It’s important to find role models that are living the type of life that you want to be living in a few years. Try to find people who truly embody what you aspire to be and start to learn about their daily habits.

What do these people do on a daily basis that allows them to have this sort of level of success?

Do they watch TV?

Do they read a book a week?

Do they exercise 5-7 times a week?

For my mentors they don’t watch much tv, read about a book a week and exercise daily. These are all habits that I work on developing and have had a major impact on my health and overall happiness.

Find Pride In Who You Are

Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
– Dr. Seuss

While you may think Dr. Seuss is only for kids, he has instilled in us a lot of valuable lessons.

When you learn to take pride in who you are, you will start to align with more people who are like you.

You will be able to communicate with people on a different level and have more meaningful relationships with people. You’ll be able to truly connect with these people.

There is an exercise that will help you find your true “core identity” and it’s by one of my business mentors. Good ole Frank Kern.

This is from his Core Influence product and has had a major impact on my life. It’s long, but worth a watch if you have the time.
(Let’s be honest, you can make time)

The Secret: The Optimists Creed

I was messing around on pinterest earlier today and came across the image of what I found out is called “The Optimists Creed”.

So I did what any normal person would do…

I decided to record myself saying it and share it with you.

That’s normal.

Well…at least in my world. 🙂

If you want to see the actual post, check it out on Pinterest here.

What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?

I just read the article on Tim Ferriss‘ blog Playing B-Ball with Obama: 6 Steps to Crossing Anything Off Your Bucket List and learned about the guys over at The Buried Life.

Watch this quick:

I’ve gotta admit, this is awesome. These guys are doing something big and are doing something great for the world. I admire people who do this kind of stuff and love seeing people like these guys experience success.

They are all about accomplishing the big things on your bucket list. I’m a huge fan of this because I have a lot of things on my list that I will accomplish.

One of the biggest things on my bucket list is to positively impact the lives of over 1 million people. Crazy, right?

 Ninety-nine percent of people believe they can’t do great things, so they aim for mediocrity.

I say f*** mediocrity. I’m only on this planet for a limited time and I’m going to do big things.

While I still have a lot of work to do to make a significant change, I’m knocking things off my list. This year I’ve written a book, improved my golf game, donated to great causes and I’m working with a company that’s going to make a huge difference in the lives of teens with Tollie International.

I plan on doing a lot more of these things and plan on doing things like help build a house, travel the world and mentor a young entrepreneur.

what do you want to do before you die

The guys at The Buried Life have a book available that you can buy. It’s only $11 and you can buy it on Amazon.

These guys are absolutely hilarious as well. Check out some of the funny videos they’ve created to promote the book below:

Now I’ve gotta ask you….

What do YOU want to do before you die?

 

Dead Poets’ Society – Carpe Diem speech

Below is one of my favorite scenes from the movie Dead Poet’s Society:

Seize the Day.

PITTS “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, old time is still a flying, and this same flower that smiles today, tomorrow will be dying.”

KEATING Thank you Mr. Pitts. “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may.” The Latin term for that sentiment is Carpe Diem. Now who knows what that means?

MEEKS Carpe Diem. That’s “seize the day.”

KEATING Very good, Mr.-

MEEKS Meeks.

KEATING Meeks. Another unusual name. Seize the day. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may. Why does the writer use these lines?

CHARLIE Because he’s in a hurry.

KEATING No, ding!

KEATING Thank you for playing anyway. Because we are food for worms lads. Because, believe it or not, each and every one of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold, and die.

KEATING Now I would like you to step forward over here and peruse some of the faces from the past. You’ve walked past them many times. I don’t think you’ve really looked at them.

KEATING They’re not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they’re destined for great things, just like many of you. Their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen. Do you hear it?

KEATING [whispers] Carpe.

KEATING [whispers again] Carpe. Carpe Diem. Seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.

What Do You Need Help With?

Some of the ideas I have are out there. Ideas like hiring me for a week have turned into pretty cool little adventures for me. (PS- you can still hire me for a week if you’d like. I haven’t traveled anywhere in a while and would love to venture outside of Florida again soon)

Well, I decided that I want to do something else that’s a little crazy.

I want to find a way to help you out.

As you may or may not know, I’m obsessed with learning and read constantly. I’m reading Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi right now and he talks about the value of the relationships you have with people. I try to implement things I learn immediately to see how well they work. To be honest, they usually work out really well and end  up teaching me quite a bit.

So, yet another experiment comes out of the crazy brain that’s inside of my head.

I want to know exactly what you need help with.

Seriously.

If you need a website designed, let me know.

If you need SEO work done on your site, let me know.

If you need someone to teach you how to dougie, let me know. I know of a how to dougie video on youtube I can show you 😉

Haha, but really… I have a huge network of people that I know that are willing and able to help you out.

What Do I Get Out Of This?

I do appreciate that you’d think of me in a time like this, but who cares what I get at this point. This is about you and helping you out.

My business is coming along great and each month it is improving. The reason it is constantly improving is because of the people I meet, the connections I make and people like you who help me when I need help.

Now it’s time that I start giving back even more.

I want to turn this post into a sort of “Help Me” section for you.

If you need help with a specific thing, let me know in the comments below. I’m willing to bet that I personally know someone who can help you, or one of my readers will be able to help you find someone who can help you out.

So Tell Me….What Do YOU Need Help With?
