DID YOU CHECK THIS? [Extremely IMPORTANT]

I have been experiencing A LOT of changes in my life for the past 3-4 years and there is an important lesson I wanted to share with you, in hopes it will help you out a bit.

There are so many challenges and hurdles that come our way on a daily basis. Tied with these challenges are STRESSES. I’m not sure about you, but if I am stressed out, everything seems to be a little off. Sometimes my attitude is off and I have to “check” myself to make certain it is NOT affecting my day or the people around me. Stress can lead to a multitude of problems if not addressed appropriately.

How do YOU deal with stress?

Now, I will say, that I CAN perform (sometimes even better) under stressful situations and achieve the desired results. But that is NOT to say there are some consequences that come along with that and some even take a toll.

This is where I want to focus in on. When stress takes a toll on you, how are you reacting to it? Are you acting as if nothing is wrong? Are you falling behind on your work? Do you have coping mechanisms? Do you become more aggressive towards others?

It is our duty to be aware of our feelings and actions at ALL times. Everyday we have to evaluate ourselves to make certain that STRESS is not controlling our day.

WHY?

Well, stress can lead to us hurting our loved ones or getting into arguments we wouldn’t normally get into. Little things bother us and sometimes we take things out on people/things who do NOT deserve it. Disputes that would normally be small have escalated into HUGE issues. Your problems seem to be magnified when you are stressed out.

That is why it is SOOOOOOOOO important we “CHECK” ourselves before we ACT on things.

The feeling of regret or remorse we get for acting “out of line” due to stress JUST isn’t worth it! We are adults and I do realize sometimes the situation can get the BEST of us, but it is imperative we limit these “situations” to a minimum.

That being said, life IN GENERAL can be stressful, but to be worried is to have no faith that things will not pan out in your favor. Things happen for a reason and I think it is a GREAT challenge to us ALL that we be careful in our interactions with people during these stressful times.

Check the STRESS! Don’t let it RUN your day!

Nobody’s Looking [What Would you Do?]

What would you do if there is a sack of money laying in the middle of the street? Would you pick it up and report it? Or would you take it home without saying a word…and ultimately spend it? It is a VERY interesting question to pose. I hear all kinds of answers when I ask this question to my audience.

The problem with EVERYONE’S answer is that it is as hypothetical as the question. Sure, you said that you would “report” the sack of money to the authorities, but was that just to sound good in front of other people? Or would you really follow through with what you said?

The other thing you may want to think about is that how the answers were presented to you. Did you simply choose one of my selected answers or did you create a new resolve yourself? For example, if you found this sack of money, you could also take some for yourself and report the remaining stash.

The point I am trying to make is that we have the ability to use our brains to make decisions and it is the thoughts we developed during these thinking periods that determine our actions. Whether your thoughts are limited by other people or your own hindrances, the actions we take from our thoughts REALLY define who we are.

We tend to be DIFFERENT individuals when we are around other people, BUT the real test in character is who we are in private. Who are you when nobody is looking? That is the REAL question. You can tell me ALL your good attributes, how responsible you are, and how great of a citizen you would be by returning the sack of money, but what REALLY matters is what you would ACTUALLY do when nobody is around.

Who we are behind closed doors is imperative to our overall success in life. You can tell me you read 15 books a week, but if you really don’t, the only person you are hurting is yourself. We MUST be real with ourselves and STOP trying to fool everyone into thinking we are people WE REALLY ARE NOT!

At the end of the day, we are simply lying to ourselves. Real character is built and maintained by being the person we say we are behind closed doors. To act in accordance with who we say we are regardless of WHERE we are and WHO is around is being REAL with ourselves,

I want to challenge you today to do a little critical thinking. Think about the scenario I gave and develop thoughts about what you would REALLY do in that situation. It is important we not only KNOW ourselves, but develop the people we are. And if it means challenging our character, then that’s what it is.

It’s not going to be easy at first, but in the end, you will be a BETTER, more evolved person. Take the time today and let’s make sure our thoughts are in line with our desired actions. Build your character TODAY!

Did You Do This Yet? [VERY IMPORTANT]

There are a few things that are extremely important to achieving the goals you desire in life. Without these components, attaining success will NOT be possible. But there is ONE component I want to emphasize today because it is VERY IMPORTANT…in fact, without it, all activities are pointless.

Going through the motions everyday can be quite boring at times, but super important. It is the persistence and consistency that will yield SOLID results. But there is something else that MOST goal setting instructors NEVER talk about. Which is ashamed because their teachings are misleading. Let’s avoid that right away and let me give you the single most important aspect of goal setting.

Going through life with goals WILL get you much further than going through without any goals. But I hear people say ALL the time that they DO INDEED have goals, but most never seem to manifest. This leads to frustration and ultimately FAILURE (by choice of quitting).

Let’s get out of the mindset of what average people do. They simply set a goal, make an intention, write it down, believe in it and take action. Don’t get me wrong, this will yield results, but they may NOT be the exact ones you want. Also, there may be a difference in time spans of when this all will ACTUALLY manifest. So let’s avoid all this and manifest the results we want (or better) and even FASTER than before!

The secret is…associating an important emotional tie with the goal. Something that is SO MEANINGFUL to you, you literally will NOT allow the dream to disappear until it comes into fruition. I found that if I gave my goal EXTREME meaning and coupled it with MASSIVE emotional reasons (it has to happen), my results come POURING in at SPEEDS I never knew possible.

This is certainly something WE ALL should be doing to get “lucky”. With the attachment of this “emotional reason”, your DRIVE and DETERMINATION walk into a level unheard of. People will start helping you achieve your goal and ultimately BELIEVE in you! I promise this ONE little change to goal setting will DRASTICALLY change your results! It has been working for me REALLY well this year and I just know it will work out for you too.

Add an “Emotional Reason” to your goals and WATCH the MAGIC unfold!!!

It’s Right In Front Of You…TAKE IT! [MUST READ]

This is ALWAYS in front of us! I am not sure whether we are blind to it or distracted by other things, but OPPORTUNITY really never goes away. Of course, there are different levels of how big or small these opportunities are, but that is not to say they aren’t in our face 24/7.

Really the decision is up to us to capitalize on the various opportunities that are presented to us. A small example would be to say hello to a random patron and spark a conversation at the train station. This may turn into absolutely nothing, but on the other hand, it has the potential to be something GREAT!

In that example you see that there was a decision that needed to be made.

1. Keep to yourself and not say anything

2. Extend your hand and say hello

After the decision in your mind is made, ACTION must take place to properly execute the capitalization of an opportunity. You see, we can have ALL the opportunities in the world, but they literally mean nothing if we take no action.

Decisions must lead into actions or they will simply be thoughts.

I hear people talking ALL the time about how “LUCKY” other folks are in life because they had better opportunities. While this may be true in some cases, it shouldn’t be the reason why you don’t capitalize on your own chances. That is a a subtle excuse people use to make themselves feel better. And even if the “some cases” is true, WHO CARES!?! Complaining about it won’t get you anywhere but to the doorstep of frustration!

There is a famous actor/businessman/professional skateboarder named Rob Dyrdek who coined the phrase, “Make Your Own Luck”.

I have to say, that at first I found this phrase to be a little challenging, but after some thought and experiences of my own, I believe there is perfect reason why this is true. I noticed that when I jumped on an opportunity and really worked my tail off, more opportunities (some even bigger) came my way. I believe that it was because how the universe works. The law of attraction, karma, whatever you want to call it, happened.

I was getting rewarded for my efforts. Even though, sometimes all my work didn’t lead to the results i had initially intended, things began to change. I believe things happen for a reason, so our thoughts on HOW life SHOULD pan out really do not matter.

The Big Guy upstairs is in control and that means mysterious things can happen at ANY given moment. That is why I want to challenge you to jump on SOME kind of opportunity today. And is you cannot find one, you are NOT trying hard enough.

Here is some help. Try thinking about FIRST helping someone else (without expecting something in return), I promise you, this will get the ball rolling!

Jump on an opportunity today and see where it takes you! Good “Luck”

Catch THIS and KEEP As Long As You Can!

It fishing season and I am seeing a ton of AWESOME pictures on Facebook. It looks like folks are having a blast this year! With all the BIG catches I have been seeing, there is one in particular we can ALL cash in on. The best part about it, is that we do NOT need ANY prior experience!

In fact, you won’t even need a real fishing rod for this! Too good to be true??? Not at all considering I am NOT talking about fishing. So don’t worry about not being a “bass master”. So what am I talking about???

MOMENTUM! That’s right, catching momentum this season will reap HUGE PROFITS! Catching momentum in ANY project/job or goal is critical to your success. There is NOTHING that gets more exciting than massive momentum.

It’s almost like a wave of progress that is important you ride out properly. Momentum is the cause of not only massive action, but being persistent and consistent in that action. The ground you gain from this kind of action, will yield you MEGA RESULTS!

Plus it feels absolutely amazing when your results come pouring in! It’s your hard work paying off! Believe me excellence gets rewarded handsomely! The goal is to MAINTAIN this “big catch” as long as possible!

Momentum build belief faster than ANYTHING I have ever seen. I am currently undertaking a HUGE project, The Motivation Files, that NEEDS my FULL attention. I have not only been giving it my FULL attention, I have been taking MASSIVE action. Lately, after a pretty rough start, I have been gaining momentum on the project and I have to tell you…it feels AMAZING!!!

I am NOT going to let go of this catch! My belief in the project is HIGHER than ever and I have been working harder than ever to make it a reality! I cannot wait to share The Motivation Files with you, and release it to the world! It was all been made possible because I was consistent and persistent in my thinking, planning, and actions!

I NEVER let the candle burn out…although some nights I felt like I was going to crash (completely exhausted). Never give up even when things seem like they will NEVER pan out. It ALL happens for a reason and if you can just keep the momentum going ONE day at a TIME, your life will be COMPLETELY different in the NEXT 30 days! I promise!

“Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.” – Ben Franklin

One day at a time and KEEP the MOJO going for as long as possible…just watch how GREATNESS unfolds before your eyes! You deserve to see it manifest!!! Go after it today!!!

KEEP Doing This & Life Will Surprise You

Are you into getting surprised? I am not much of a fan, but I will say, sometimes surprises have delighted me. Over the past 9 years, I have noticed something very interesting in attaining my goals. Something that I thought would be beneficial for you, if I shared.

When I was introduced to the Personal Development Industry back in 2006, I was hammered with all kinds of methods on goal setting and living the life of your dreams. They showed me how to put a dream board together and even go out “Dream building”. I was absolutely captivated by this new material.

It was exciting to know I could craft my life. But was fascinated me MOST, was that I could have BIG DREAMS and not feel weird about it. My parents always encouraged us to go after whatever it was we wanted in life. They created an atmosphere of being optimistic about the future. So when I was introduced to the personal development arena, DREAMING was the first thing that got my attention.

Fast-forward 9 years later and I have accomplished SO MANY of my goals/dreams it actually blows my mind! The funny thing about MOST of them is that they didn’t pan out EXACTLY how I had imagined! In fact, the majority of my dreams manifested even BETTER than I ever even thought they would!

A huge proponent to this is the persistent and consistent methods of dreaming I was doing. Some dreams took longer to unfold than others, but I still stuck with it and that is the message I wanted to share with you!

IF you simply just KEEP doing this, life will surprise you! KEEP DREAMING! No matter how things panned out for you in the past, you have to stick with your goals. I noticed that if I kept dreaming about accomplishing my goals, they eventually manifested in my life. Obviously, there was A LOT of action that took place, on my end, but I was persistent and consistent in the pursuit.

Throughout time, my dreams developed and changed into bigger and better ones. If they didn’t manifest in the time frame I thought they would, i just adjusted the goal and kept on dreaming! I believed in my dreams and STILL believe in my dreams, which is why I have accomplished so many of them.

It’s important we have BIG DREAMS that we actually believe in. This belief is the component that trigger’s manifestation.

If you simply stick with your DREAMS, life WILL surprise you…and I am sure you will be just as delighted as I was! Just stay with it and DREAM BIG!

I hope you found this helpful!

Finally, There Is Hope [DON’T MISS THIS]

There is a message I wanted to send to ALL of you. It is extremely important and I have this sense of urgency to tell you. It has been sitting on my heart for a couple of weeks now.

I want to share with you a message of HOPE! For some of you, things are going great, but there are other’s out there that NEED a positive message to carry them on! Listen, you are NOT alone and I am here to help alleviate some stress with this message.

I wrote this piece a while ago, and was going to incorporate it into my latest project [The Motivation Files], but I didn’t. I wanted to share it with you guys first and hopefully leave you with a positive message you can take with you during your journey.

Here it is:

_______________________________________________________

THERE IS HOPE

You knew things were going south, but this moment is too sudden…
You were hoping things would change for the better, but they never did…
Problem after problem piled up and no solution…
You have attempted multiple times to solve these challenges to the best of your ability…
It feels like someone is literally choking you…
Youre getting blindsided from every direction you turn…
Your eyes well up and you are completely overwhelmed…
Your life has spun out of control, but in the exterior everything appears fine…
You hold it in, in hope that the nightmare comes to an end…
Your head is JUST above the water…
ONE MORE strong current and you will be drowning.
And it happens…
The biggest wave comes crashing into you and pulls you into the massive ocean…
Everything comes to a complete standstill…
You hear random volumes of echoes…
Your life flashes before you…
you are completely panicking as oxygen levels become lower with every second that passes…
Then complete silence…
Everything is a blur and is closing in on you…
You blackout…
During this blackout multiple thoughts come rushing in…
A complete moment of clarity during this scary time of Quiet Desparation…
FEAR vanishes from your soul…
Everything that has been holding you back seems to be insignificant…
Your problems appear to be tiny inconveniences…
Worry flee’s the body…
THEN THE TRUTH sets in…
You haven’t completed your mission…
There is MUCH MORE for you to do!
You begin flopping your arms swimming to the surface…
Frantically reaching for the top!
Your Mission is set…
Reach the surface and success is yours…
Your extreme focus zones in on the goal…
Your moving at speeds unheard of…
Even The sharks are moving out of your way!
NOTHING will STOP YOU! Not this time!
Then your moment comes and you burst out of the water like a raging dolphin!
Oxygen fills your lungs with accomplishment and satisfaction!
The dream is fulfilled!
Your moment of desparation was in place to push you levels you have NEVER seen before…
To show you your TRUE potential!
So you see…there is hope!
_____________________________________________________
There is HOPE and I want you to REALLY understand that you will NOT be given something you CANNOT handle! Things happen for a reason and are ALL a part of building you into a STRONGER person. You can overcome ANY obstacle and defeat ANY problem with a little hope! DO NOT give up…you are CLOSER than you think!

This Took FIRST Place !?!?

How many competitions have you entered in your life? Is there just ONE that stands out? Did you WIN anything or placed in the event?

It’s in our nature to be competitive, but about making “placements” in our life as a whole? Huh? I know this may sound a bit confusing, but stick with me here. We all have priorities no matter what our age is. We categorize them and then act on them accordingly.

Some of these priorities have TOP placement in our lives, while others tend to ALWAYS be at the bottom of the barrel! Our priorities are influenced by EVERYTHING around us.

I found that if I am around a group of ambitious entrepreneur’s I too will be very ambitious. If I am around a group of complainers, then I find myself complaining about stuff. It’s the way things work…you are who you hang around.

In my family, we place our Family’s needs above EVERYTHING! We go above and beyond to help each other out. It’s almost like it’s in our DNA.

Recently, my wife and I were in a pickle. It was something important that needed to be taken care of immediately. After a discussion, we then turned to friends and family about it. The reaction was AMAZING! our family responded with ease and quickness!

Our problem was solved and taken care of by FAMILY members of ALL sorts! It wasn’t just ONE group of Family member’s, it was several different ones with different backgrounds that came together and SOLVED our problem.

I couldn’t be more thankful for the LOVE and SUPPORT we have in our family members. This situation right here is the EXACT reason why we place FAMILY FIRST!!!

That’s right, Family took FIRST PLACE!

It’s a give and take kind of thing that I don’t think ANYONE can explain. We do NOT take it for granted and are overwhelmingly grateful to be a part of such a loving network of people.

I was just curious if there is ANYONE else out there who feels the same way or has ANOTHER priority (aside from God) first?

Let me know if you share a similar experience and if you too place FAMILY FIRST!

Why You Need A GUT to Succeed

With Summer here, it’s kind of funny for someone to say you NEED a gut (of ALL things) to succeed. Most of you are probably thinking I’m either crazy or full of it! I recently read an article that the “Dad Bod” is the new thing women are going nuts over. I’m not sure I’m buying that concept and to top it off, it has NOTHING to do with what I want to talk about. haha! (I just found it to be interesting)

In fact, when I am referring to the “gut”, I am not even talking about your physical body. I am talking about having the courage and fortitude to do something you want to do.

I found that the MORE uncomfortable situations I placed myself in, the MORE unique results I attained. I discovered that if I continued to be “comfortable” and do what I have always done, my results would return as something I have already seen. Which is the complete opposite of what I wanted to see! It just made simple sense…if I wanted to get NEW results, I had to do NEW things!

That being said, it’s almost NEVER easy doing NEW things! This is where I was getting super uncomfortable and purposely putting myself in vulnerable situations. This may sound raw to some folks, but it’s what I had to do (and continue to do) to get different results manifesting in my life.’

I must have been extremely naive to think things would just CHANGE on their own! haha! I mean, I literally thought that because I was “thinking” about my dreams all the time, that they would somehow MAGICALLY appear in my life! WRONG!

Man that reality REALLY stung sometimes! I quickly realized I have to take SOME form of action, in a different direction to yield a NEW/DIFFERENT result. This wasn’t so easy!

This is why I am saying that you NEED a GUT to Succeed! Along with some tough skin, you need some courage to go after your dreams. I say this all the time, but if being successful was easy, everyone would be a success!

I began to see that EVERY single time I was placed in a NEW situation, my results came back as something NEW I could learn from. Sometimes the success I was seeking was awarded to me immediately!

I promise you, this will feel extremely uncomfortable…in fact, it will ALWAYS be uncomfortable trying something new, but you WILL yield NEW results! And having GUTS to do it, will PUSH you forward FASTER than ever before!

I challenge you to try something NEW today and see how you feel. These new feelings will then turn into new results and take you into new experiences. With a little adjustment, you can continue to do this until you manifest the results you want!

I have been doing this for quite sometime now and it STILL stands true for me…You need a GUT to Succeed!

I hope this helps you in WHATEVER you are going through at the moment!

To YOUR Massive Success,

Jimmylee
