So today I heard this interesting quote from Tony Robbins. He said that most people over estimate what they can do in a year but under estimate what they can accomplish in a decade. This is perfect timing being that I’m at the year mark for starting my own business. I didn’t hit all of the goals that I wanted to but I did do well for myself. What’s important to remember is that although I didn’t hit all my goals for this year, I shouldn’t give up. Play the long game.
We all have people who come into our lives at just the right time. Why and how this happens I don’t know. Some would say it’s the universe working it’s magic. Whatever it is, pay close attention to those around you, they could be doing more for you than you think.
So I’ve been reading this book that was recommended to me by someone that I consider a mentor. It’s called the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. One of the most interesting parts was the concept of Living a Principle Centered Life. This concept basically means that you have a set of core values and principles that you base all of your decisions off. The type of decision doesn’t matter because whatever it is, you always measure it against your core principles and values.
Trying something new here. I’ve decided to make a video version of the podcast. Here’s the link to the video and my Youtube Channel where you can get a behind the scenes look at how I record my podcast.

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.

As I grow older, I begin to see things in a different way. Money is one of these things. And the more I seem to learn about it, the more confusing or illusive it can become. But ever so often, there are these moments of clarity where I have a thought that makes it all make sense. Realizing this is one thing, but acting upon faith on it, is another.

Telling our stories is one of the most powerful ways that we connect. Being able to relate to one another is a major key factor in creating a powerful bond. Learn about others. Find out who they are. Get to know more about them than “what they do”. There’s something powerful about stories and our unique way of finding ourselves in them.
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.

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.

A stupid mistakes leads to a big realization. Do The Right Thing! Even when you don’t have to. That’s what makes it “right” or “ethical”. Although I felt embarrassed, stupid, and foolish, it also sparked this thought and conversation. I hope that in this situation I did the right “thing” for myself.
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.
