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.

The Push

Hello everyone! I wanted to kick this week off on the right foot, so this post will be a bit on the motivating side. We are at a critical time in life where we literally have access to the world at our fingertips. Whatever dreams and aspirations you have, it is ALL possible.

If you wanted to learn how to play the guitar, for example, all you have to do is jump on the internet and watch a few “how-to” video’s or find a local teacher on sites like YELP. If you wanted to further your education, you can apply for and take classes online RIGHT NOW! If you wanted to build a support group for an important cause, you can easily put together a fan page within minutes and begin building your team. The list can quite literally go on FOREVER!

So what is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people? It’s simple, they take action and continue to find ways to make it happen, by doing whatever it takes. They throw the excuses out the window. With all this technology, our lives have become much more simpler, but I hear people say they are too busy. The point of MOST technology is for luxury and saving time, how are we even MORE busy than ever?

To me, it boils down to ONE word. PRIORITY. I have written MANY posts on this, but we ALL need the gentle reminder every once in a while. If living out your dream is a priority to YOU, it WILL happen. We know that it CAN happen, but you are the determining factor if it ever WILL happen.

It’s time to put the excuses in the trash, and stand up for your dreams. This time of year (beginning of the school year) wreaks of starting fresh. Take your life to the NEXT level! PUSH the limits and set the tone TODAY! Do 10 times the amount of work today and create your own momentum! Take action, believe and stick with the script. Forget ALL the past doubts and failures, today is the day you are going to PUSH your way into success (however you define it).

Get up and GOOOOOOOO!!!

Let me know  (in the comment section) RIGHT NOW, what you are going to do to PUSH yourself to the next level!

My BIGGEST Weakness

I am super curious to hear your story and what your biggest weaknesses are. please feel free to share!

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!

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!
To Your Massive Success,
Jimmylee
PS. The Motivation Files will be released this Fall!!! Stay Tuned!!!

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!

To Your Massive Success,

JImmylee
