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.

It Unfolds Itself!

The title sounds like an invention pitch you would hear on the hit show Shark Tank. But the words “it unfolds itself” are something MUCH more important than ANY invention pitch! I am referring to life and the “unfolding” is something life does naturally. There are MANY of you who believe in the law of attraction, so I need you to bear with me.

I do believe we are in control of our lives (for the most part). For the portion we have ZERO control over combined with our own actions determines the results we get in life. Do not think too deep with this one here.

I have been setting goals and getting results my entire life. If there is ONE thing I can say about setting goals and achieving them, is that “HOW” I got to my result almost ALWAYS takes routes unplanned. No matter how much I articulate and calculate a plan, the attainment of the goal goes in directions I could never predict.

Am I saying plans are useless? Absolutely NOT! They are JUST a tool. Plans should only be in place for guidance. Plans have to be flexible because there WILL be life events that will ultimately disrupt your plans. This is where life “unfolds itself”.

I can remember random goals I set and was so enthusiastic about achieving them, it felt like I was FORCING things to happen. In some cases, I really was FORCING things to happen, but something interesting would ALWAYS happen. Life would throw me curve balls that I could NEVER account for. They would be so random, it would throw me off!

The point is, we MUST make plans and do EVERYTHING we can do, but understand that life will unfold itself. It’s for the BETTER! Believe me! Every time something “ruined” my plans, in the end it ended up being a MASSIVE BLESSING! God knows what he is doing, so don’t fret over “spoiled” plans…His plans are WAYYYYYY better than ours!

For me, The Motivation Files project took turns I NEVER saw coming. In the end, they all worked out for the greater good! We have to remember to be flexible and adjust our plans when necessary. Simply rollllllll with the punches, life is easier that way!

I hope this helps!

To Your MASSIVE SUCCESS,

Jimmylee
