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.

GET OUT!!!

Sometimes we have to be tough with ourselves and the people we love. I have people send me questions on a daily basis and most people are seeking out advice for a better life. One of the most common threads that I find, are that these people seem to already know the answer. I know that may sound kind of weird at first, but it’s true.

I believe we have within us everything we need to really become the BEST versions of ourselves. I do not want this to get twisted, so let me be clear about seeking council. You should always seek guidance and mentorship when making the “big” decisions, even if you know what is right in your heart. It helps to clarify your thoughts and give them even more support. This way you may make decisions with the utmost certainty.

Now, I really am not quite sure the EXACT reason these people ask me questions they know the answers to, but it just may be to verify their thoughts. Just like anything else, this too can get a little out of control. I hear some of there responses after I give them feedback that validate they know the answers already. Some folks continually need validation for their thoughts, which made me draw a very interesting conclusion.

They need to GET OUT of their own way. These people are LITERALLY complicating life into ways that are obnoxiously unnecessary. This can be one of our BIGGEST problems to advancing. All those crazy convoluted thoughts interfering the process will create havoc if not controlled.

Life tosses us enough obstacles, we should try and be less disruptive to reality. I am not trying to be insensitive here, I am bring you the RAW truth. Sometimes the only thing holding YOU back is YOU! We drag our feet as if we are scared to achieve our goals. We have an amplitude of excuses stored up for every solution and a weak belief that things will end up on a positive note.

I am not 100% why we do this, but know it cannot go on if we wish to become the BEST versions of ourselves. WE need to seriously get out of our own way and let our story unfold more naturally. If you are facing this issue, I suggest you let it go and STOP with the excuses. The excuses are ONLY hurting YOU!

I hope this helps guide you in a more precise direction towards your goals. Take the time to analyze your life and check to see of YOU are in YOUR own way. And if you are…GET OUT!!!

To Your Massive Success,

Jimmylee
