28: Time to Start Breaking the Rules

Was listening to an interesting podcast the other day where the person was talking about staying out of Jail and out of Hell. He was saying the as an entrepreneur we have to break the rules to get to the places we wish. We don’t have to follow society norms and what everyone else thinks you should be doing. As long as you stay out of Jail and Out of Hell, everything else is up for grabs.

I thought this lesson was valuable not only to those who wish or want to be entrepreneurs, but to anybody out there who’s looking to do extraordinary things in the their life.

23: Impossible Possibility

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

What is a Impossible Possibility?  It’s a moment in time when we have a unique opportunity.  But are we recognizing it?  Looking at my life right now I’m in a position where I have a Impossible Possibility and it’s truly an amazing gift.  But I realized that I myself wasn’t totally aware of this.  The power of now is being able to catch yourself where you are right now.  Meet yourself where you are right now and live in that moment.  Remember that the moment now is the only moment that we have.  It’s better to see what you have now than it is to look for more.

20: Make a Move

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

Sometimes in order to see things begin to move, you have to first make the move.  By making a move we can set off a trigger of events that will help whatever we want begin to manifest.  Every once in a while we ourselves need a kick in the ass and the same goes for us giving others a kick in the ass.  Regardless of the situation, the one thing I realized is that action needs to be done first for motion to begin.

19: My Failure was My Gift

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

My failures in life have often turned out to be my greatest gifts and wisest teachers.  When looking on back on where I came from and where I am today, I can’t help but to be thankful for all of the hardships that I’ve suffered.  Not saying these series of events were a good time while they were happening.  But all in all they helped me grow.  It’s funny how when we’re going through troubles, others can believe in us more than we believe in ourselves.

17: Basketball Game

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

How a simple basketball game helped to remind me just how great life can be when we step on the other side of fear.  I like this story because it serves as a means to look back and remember past victories that we’ve had.  Our story either keeps us caged in or sets us free.

15: Leap of Faith

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

I speak about how and why I came to the decision to quit my job as a school teacher.  Although I loved the profession, I wanted a change in my lifestyle.  I’ve learned some valuable lessons along the way and had some amazing experiences.  The biggest thing was taking that Leap of Faith and actually resigning from my position.

14: Being Right

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

We all want to be right to some degree.  Is it us or is it our ego?  I speak about how we can bring peace in a way that works for the greater good.  The main thing that we have to overcome is ourselves.

13: Paint the Picture

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

Just my thoughts on when it comes to bringing a vision into manifestation.  During this time, when you’re working towards something that you want to create, we often get pushback or resistance from those we least expect.  What makes it even more difficult is when you’re looking to those same people for support.  I’ve learned that it’s not always the case that they don’t support or believe in you, it’s that they can’t see the vision until you complete it.

11: Social Media Hibernation

Just My Thoughts Podcast - Jonathan Moore

I speak about my struggles with social media.  How I know that I need to incorporate it into my life, but I don’t need to either at the same time.  I guess it’s about finding that balance.  Maybe, just over the years I’ve learned how to get a better handle on it and use it to my advantage.  Find the platforms that fits you best.
