Views

When I hear about someone’s “view” I immediately think of someone standing on a balcony of their hotel room, arms stretched (metaphorically hugging the sky) overlooking a beach town. I think about all of the things they could see and absorb into their memory. I think about the fresh air they are breathing in and the ocean aroma blazing their sense of smell. I think of the sounds of nearby traffic, restaurant music and ocean waves clashing onto shore. I guess you can say, this view was a symbolic feeling of freedom.

An interesting aspect is that their view is slightly different from every other person standing on their balcony in this hotel. They are residing in the same location, but depending on the room they are staying in, the views vary tremendously.

Some folks have a view of the courtyard, some have a view of another hotel, and some have a view of the parking lot. There are also differences in views which are determined by which floor you are staying in. Obviously, the higher the floor, the opportunity of having a much broader view increases dramatically; I mean, the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong has 118 floors! That stated, there are CLEAR differences in everyone’s views.

This is the EXACT reason WHY and HOW the Rotated Views Podcast came into creation. I always wanted to have my own podcast, but between timing and content, I was uncertain about the whole thing.

My buddy Gabe and I are both very much into the personal development/self-help arena. When we would have discussions, they normally resulted into philosophical and challenging conversations. We would joke about having these conversations recorded and shared with everyone. On the other hand, I would have similar conversations with my brothers and cousins; mostly over a cigar. To top this all off, I was on a weekly mastermind call with my friend Scott which ALSO led to profound conversations about life, entrepreneurship and success.

This went on for YEARS and finally last year my buddy Scott was taking on the project of beginning a podcast for himself, so I was able to see all the things that went into the process. I was busy with my spoken word album and book, The Motivation Files at the time, but knew one day I was going to create my very own podcast.

Well, 2016 was here and it was time to get this podcast rolling. After lengthy discussions with my buddy Gabe, my buddy Scott, my brothers and my cousin Manny, I decided to MAKE IT HAPPEN! I wanted to put together a podcast that had various perspectives on all aspects of life; hence the name Rotated Views. This would give a point of view from all levels of the “hotel” and ALL types of people could relate.

That is the shortened version of the development process of The Rotated Views Podcast. I will reveal the WHOLE story in a future podcast, so stay tuned for that! I just wanted to give you a little background of why I am so excited to FINALLY release this new project to the world. We have been working VERY HARD behind the scenes and faced some challenges. The important thing is that we OVERCAME adversity and manifested this dream.

We kicked the podcast launch off with Episode 1: Can’t We All Just Get Along? Here we touch upon the importance of understanding each other, bullying and how delicate relationships really are. We then published Episode 2: Are You Aware?!?! This episode touches the deeper meaning of life and really pulls out an interesting discussion of self-awareness. We followed the first two episodes up with Episode 3: You Have To Earn It. This third installment completes our launch of the podcast and dives RIGHT into karma, the law of attraction and earning your way through life.

All three episodes are currently available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and TuneIn Radio applications. Download and subscribe to the podcast. We would also appreciate it if you would take the time to rate it and leave us some feedback. Lastly, let us know what you think of each episode, send comments, questions, or concerns to info@jimmyleevelez.com

Again, thank you for all the LOVE & SUPPORT! We look forward to recording future podcasts and are excited to live out our dreams right before your eyes! What an amazing feeling to be doing something you LOVE!

PS. Yes, we launched our “Views” the same week Drake Dropped his “Views From The 6album; this was not intentional, but kind of ironic.

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!

PS. Keep on the look out for “teasers” of The Motivation Files coming around soon! The project WILL be released this Fall and you will be one of the FIRST to be informed, so STAY TUNED! This is going to be EXCITING!!!

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!!!

To Your Massive Success,

Jimmylee
