Operate From Alignment

Operate From Alignment

**Originally published on Facebook April 27th, 2018.

Friday night 1 am… just finishing the day.

I’m not one of those entrepreneurs who runs around saying “if you’re not up at 5 am you’re never going to be successful” or “the late night hustle and grind is a must if you want to win”.

I don’t believe you HAVE to do anything. In fact, I actually think you’ll be MORE successful if you’re getting enough sleep, working out, eating well, spending significant time not working and disconnected, etc…. basically you have to take care of yourself if you want to be able to build and maintain a successful business.

Lasting Change

Lasting Change

“It’s the mindset stuff that’s missing. The weekly mindset talks and getting different perspectives. That’s why this works and the change is so deep.”

I was talking with a client recently and as we were discussing the difference in various styles of learning and growth, he explained his observations and offered that little nugget above and he couldn’t be more on point. Continue reading “Lasting Change”

Intention

Intention

10 hours in the car, lots to unpack and put away before jumping into a little work before I can finally go to bed after what feels like the longest day ever.

I knew I barely had anything in the fridge because I was gone for 10 days so I cleaned it out before I left. I also knew I wouldn’t want to go to the grocery store tonight… so I could have just eaten something out of the freezer or some ramen or went through a drive thru but instead I planned ahead.

Getting Shit Done Efficiently

Getting Shit Done Efficiently

You guys already know I’m all about getting shit done in business but I’m not sure if you realize that it’s also a lifestyle. In every portion of my life I work to make things as efficient as possible. That includes tools, a strategy, a mindset or a product, I am all about finding things that fit and work for me.

Motivation

Motivation

I get asked a lot “How do you stay so motivated?”

Well the truth is, I don’t.

Motivation has nothing to do with it. I don’t wake up everyday motivated to work my ass off. I don’t want to do all the things on my list, hit the gym, and eat the veggies instead of the cookies… but I still do it.

You see, you’ve got this whole thing twisted. Just because you constantly see me doing stuff and you have witnessed my growth, doesn’t mean that I’m super motivated all the time. It simply means I CHOOSE to do these things, even when I don’t really feel like it.

It comes down to drive. Are you driven to be in control of our own life?

It comes down to: How bad do you want it? If you REALLY want it, then you do the work. Even when you’re not feeling motivated. You do it anyway. Continue reading “Motivation”

An Open Letter to People Always Looking for a Discount

An Open Letter to People Always Looking for a Discount

Did you know that you’re actually cheating yourself before you even get started?

You can’t have it for free AND expect to get results, it doesn’t work that way.

Here’s the deal guys…the internet is exploding with free information. Anything you want to learn, you can. It’s at your fingertips. Trust me, I’ve done it. I learned how to build websites, create promo images, how to properly use every project management tool I know, and a ton other things that I’ve ‘self taught’ through free information that is available online.

You want to know why the majority of people STILL don’t make shit happen even though the information is readily available to them?

BECAUSE THEY’RE LAZY. That’s why. Continue reading “An Open Letter to People Always Looking for a Discount”

Start Choosing Love

Start Choosing Love

People die unexpectedly every day.
People who were perfectly healthy yesterday drop dead with no warning. It makes me a little nauseous just thinking about it sometimes but it’s the truth.

What if someone you thought you had more time with turns out to be one of those people?

Would you have words left unsaid? feelings left unshared?

Don’t be the guy who walks around the rest of his life saying “I wish I would have said ‘this’ when I had the chance ”.

That line right there is a heavy one to carry.

And why? Because being honest is scary? Or maybe your pride gets in the way so you don’t say what you feel?

Ask yourself: Will that pride or fear be worth it if tomorrow never comes?

Speak your words to the people in your life. Tell that person how you feel. Chances are, they have NO idea.

Look, I’m not trying to be morbid. I am trying to prevent the large group of people who live with regret and guilt everyday because they simply don’t tell the truth or share their feelings.

Because they let fear win, no matter how much they don’t want to ever admit that that is the case.

That voice that stops you from sharing what’s in your heart? That’s fear.

That feeling you feel that makes you want to share in the first place? That’s love.

Start choosing LOVE every time and lighten your own load .
