What’s impossible?

Do you believe in the impossible?

It’s easy to think that there are things that are impossible in life. Then again it’s easy to prove that’s not true.

I’ve been given the privilege of teaching a leadership and character building class for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. One of the things I asked them today was if they believed in the impossible. Most don’t.

As adults we seem to lose touch with that “no limits all is possible mentality.” Here’s an example I gave the kids today about dreaming big and doing the impossible.

For the most part everyone (especially adults and young adults) use a cell phone for the majority of the day. What’s interesting is that around 50 or 60 years ago (don’t quote me on the time frame) the man who introduced the idea of long distance communication by radio frequency was considered crazy by his friends. They actually wanted to send him to a mental institution. After the idea came to be everyone praised his genius.

That man challenged the impossible though and changed the world. If he would have let his friends set his own limitations how would life be different today?

I don’t really think that there is such a thing as impossible. Honestly, I think that impossible is just an invitation for the great minds of this world to challenge just how much we can accomplish if we refuse to quit. How much we can accomplish if we refuse to let others set limitations for us.

Remember this: Small minds will always be intimidated by the ideas of great ones.

Minimize the bullshit

How much of what you entertain daily is actually helping you toward your goal?

I’m not a big fan of the news. Mainly because there’s nothing on the news that’s actually contributing in a positive way to my every day.

Honestly. Knowing what’s going on in the Middle East, or what the president tweeted isn’t going to help me make money today. Definitely not going to help me find peace.

So how come so many people entertain the news?

The news isn’t the only thing I avoid. I also don’t fancy talking about people much. Unless it’s talking about ideas and strategy that person has that can help me be more successful.

To be successful we need to minimize the amount of bullshit we entertain daily and optimize the practical information we absorb.

Just my opinion. Disagree? Comment your opinion below.

Magic words…

What do you say about yourself? What kinds of things do you repeat to yourself daily?

How many times do we go through the day saying things like “I could never do that”, or “ugh, I was so stupid”? The words we speak are energy and they create our life. If we tell ourselves that something is beyond us, then we program our minds to live that out. It may sound a little crazy but I promise magic isn’t all about wands and funny hats.

Words have the ability to create and that in itself is magical. Positive affirmations. We can program our mind to believe anything. It’s a matter of repetition. If we constantly tell ourselves that we are great and we will succeed, our mind can’t tell that it isn’t true so it starts to live that out.

Practice this in the mirror: look yourself in the eyes and say “I love you, you’re amazing”. Do this for as long as it takes for you to believe it. Notice how great you feel afterward. We have to be our own biggest cheerleaders. Speak life into yourself and grow. Watch how the magic of these words amps up your life. Seriously, when’s the last time you told yourself you were amazing?

Treat yourself the way you would like others to treat you. Set the standard.

love you all,

Entrepreneurs

Every day thousands of people quit. Some people quit jobs, others quit relationships but the real sad one is when people quit their dreams.

If there’s anything I’ve learned since taking the plunge into entrepreneurship it’s that it will take every last bit that you have. It will take all of your money. It will take all of your time, your patience, your hope. And after you’ve given all that you have it will make you wait.

(Currently the stage that I’m in right now lol)

It will test you. Because being an entrepreneur isn’t something that’s easy. It’s something that’s rewarding. Getting started, that’s only the preparation for the journey ahead. A boot camp.

If you’ve decided to join this elite group of individuals who cash in everything they have and risk it all for the chance to be the captains of their destiny–push on!

The journey isn’t easy because we have to be tough; and easy trails don’t make tough pioneers.

Everyone who’s ever accomplished anything great risked it all. Some lost everything before they were rewarded with everything.

Don’t quit! Don’t quit!

The next time you see a successful entrepreneur in their nice suit, enjoying a rewarding life, remember–that person has been tested more than the average man will ever consider and has come out victorious.

Cheers to all the entrepreneurs who refuse to quit. Love all you stubborn people!

Growth is not an accident

How many of us want better? Anything. A better life in general. A better career. A better relationship. A better looking bank account?

Almost everybody we know wants something better. How many actually have a plan to make better happen?

I think most of us have grown with the misconception that growth just happens. That if we go to school, and get a job and work hard we will by default move up and up in life.

Now how many people do we know that have done this and are still in the same place ten years later?

One great thing I heard was: ” if you’re still talking about what you did five years ago you haven’t grown.”

The main take away here is that most people want to change their circumstances but are unwilling to change themselves.

If we want a better life we have to work diligently on at least one thing everyday and make it better. Be it how we treat others, how we eat, how we spend etc…

We must live on purpose!

Do you have a personal growth plan? Comment below.

LOVE the acronym

What if we broke the word love down into four simple steps we could take to actually live out the word?

LOVE be Loving, Optimistic, a Visionary and Encourager!

How could someone not benefit from having this kind of person in their life?! If we all lived out love in this way it would add so much inspiration and positive energy to the people around us. We would add value and live with a purpose. And it’s easy!

Add value to the lives of those around you and you’ll add value to your own life as a result. It’s a win win!

For the most part I think it’s safe to say that we all enjoy a little positive vibe. Most people feel good when someone says something nice or encouraging to them. Shares a smile. Offers to help. Especially when you do this for a complete stranger!

Be the change you want to see in the world. Live on purpose!

I challenge you to go out and do just one random act of kindness everyday and prove me wrong if it doesn’t make your life better.

Love y’all

Journey to success

Success is a destination, just like any other destination you don’t get there instantly. You get there one step at a time in the right direction.

If we learn to treat our journey toward success like we treat a journey to any where on our GPS we would have a lot more success.

When we set our destination on our GPS we get a little blue line that tells us where we’re going. We get an estimated time that the journey will take.

All of this allows us to prepare in advance for our travel. We know it’s going to take time. We know that there may be some delays, that there may be road blocks and traffic jams. We may get tired. At the end of it all we know that sooner or later, one way or another–we’re going to get there.

So we get in our car and we drive. We follow the directions and we focus on the path ahead until we get to where we want to be.

This is our path to success. Let’s put our destination into our success GPS. Follow the directions and let’s focus on the path ahead. Buckle up and drive on; and just like taking a trip eventually we will get to where we want to be.
