I believe it is fair to say that EVERYONE is battling something. To some degree, we are ALL facing our very own “Goliath”. However, there seems to be a level of carelessness when it comes to handling the “battles” everyone else is facing.
Are we truly being empathetic towards others?
Lets face it, we are ALL consumed with our own lives and ALL of the complexities it entails. There are so many things going on at once, it is very hard to genuinely invest our time/emotions into other things. I am not sure if it is simply the fast-paced society we live in, or if we have just grown a part from each other.
One thing is for sure, we are all connected to each other to some extent. I believe our personality, compassion, geographical location and some other factors determine the extension. Still, with all these factors acting as glue for our connectivity, we seem to be missing the mark when it comes to being empathetic.
I think it is time to recognize that everyone is going through a rough patch in life. It may not be something you even notice or are aware of, but it’s important to understand this concept at its basic level. Nobody in this world has it “all together” or “all figured” out, even if it appears to be that way. Inside, each individual has challenges they face daily. If we all can just grasp that fact, I believe the world would be a better place.
I don’t want to sound childish or immature, but I seriously believe if we can all briefly get our heads out our own problems for one minute, this idea would be very clear. It’s simply having an awareness and a compassion towards others. What this does is it eliminates the top layer of judgement we place on each other. It’s a forced pause, a thinking halt, and an empathetic appreciation for one another.
So all this “misunderstood” and “anger” may be not as intense as it currently is. Lets try to put ourselves in other peoples shoes and try to understand their perspective. Maybe ask “why” to yourself first and then proceed with your approach. These little pauses WILL make a world of a difference. Let’s be clear, this is not to excuse ANYONE from stupidity or any form of abuse, it is simply an exercise to grow our emotional intelligence.
I say give it a try today. Before you make a judgement on someone, pause and realize they are facing a “Goliath” at some level and they are acting with that on their shoulders.

To Your Massive Success,
There is a VERY important message that I feel is NEEDED at this moment and I will address it here as best as I can. It is an interesting “concept” that I believe to be a “reality” that can really boost your life into TRUE PURPOSE. It is amazing to me that MOST people either forget or simply DO NOT comprehend their own power and allow life to be lived in the cesspool of mediocrity.
I want you to stick both arms out in front of your body (zombie position). Bending at the elbows, bring your hands straight back to your head, as if you were about to perform a sit-up. With the tips of your index fingers, tap the side of your head (temple area). If you were to measure the distance between your two index fingers, it would be approximately 6 inches. And it is these 6 inches that determine everything.
Remember, you are always 6 inches away from your goal. Repeat this exercise when you need that little reminder. No matter how BIG your goal, you ca attain it by working it through your mind. We give up on things more because of mental fatigue than anything else. Sure there are a few exceptions, but the overall reason for not achieving your dreams is because you cannot withstand the journey; the hurdles beat you up mentally.
Without trying to oversimplify the subject, just know that the ONLY thing separating the successful from the unsuccessful truly is 6 inches. In fact, it is these 6 measly inches that separate EVERYONE. Take control of your mind and life will unfold itself to your demands. I believe in you and pray you get hold of your brain enough to live the life of your dreams!
To Your MASSIVE Success,
There are many books and other resources out there that go into explicit details on goal setting and attain your dream life. Since I have been studying “the game”, I noticed that there is a LOT of JUNK out there that is really just leading people in the wrong direction. I can make that strong statement because I am a living testament to it.
I seriously cannot stand when “guru’s” give their opinions on things they NEVER even did or experienced. To top it off they give “advice” to people as if they are factual when in reality it is all just hypothetical. They jump on their soapbox and go off on subject matter they inflate with false ideas and misdirection. It actually kind of sad to be honest.
Sadly, it doesn’t stop there. They then sell products and services to innocent people (who truly want to make a change in their life) for RIDICULOUS amounts of money that contain shallow, reiterated garbage and useless information. Their secret is this…give people SO MUCH information, they feel inundated and quite literally get overwhelmed by the obnoxious amounts of frivolous data, that they simply quit. Then these “guru’s” will say, “you didn’t follow the steps, that’s why you failed”. Oh and let’s dress this product or service with attracting beautiful packaging to REALLY convince people this stuff is the REAL DEAL. I mean it’s the equivalent of putting a tuxedo on a garbage can stuffed with smelly trash.
Unfortunately, these “guru’s” get away with schemes like this on daily basis. INFORMATION OVERLOAD. It makes people feel incompetent and undeserving of their dream life; which is the EXACT opposite of what the personal development industry should be creating.
Let me stop the rant before I frustrate myself even more.
That being said, I wanted to share with you a tip I have been using for years to manifest the things I wanted to appear in my life. Now, it may sound a bit weird at first (if you never heard of it before), but stick with me here.
Here is the tip: Obsess over what it is you want
Creepy stuff right? This is obviously intended to be utilized in a healthy manner and I will help you do just that.
Recently, I have been fascinated about a specific smart watch. I would watch video tutorials and stare at images of this smart watch daily. I would look at accessories and even place them in the “cart” as if I already owned the smart watch. I had things listed and written down that I would purchased when I get this particular smart watch. I would tell people about it and almost drool over it whenever I saw one. I picked the color schemes I wanted and even cut out newspaper ads of the smart watch. I registered to become a “product tester” and even entered in contest to win this particular smart watch. I was simply obsessed.
Finally, after 2-3 weeks of obsessing over this particular smart watch, it manifested itself into my life. I am now the proud owner of this particular smart watch and even own the exact model I dreamed about. I am extremely happy and grateful for being so blessed.
I know this example may seem a bit shallow because I am talking about something materialistic, but it was easy to make my point in an understandable way.
That being said, I believe you can manifest the life you crave, if you simply add this tool to the collection. I am NOT saying this is the ONLY thing you need, but it is a real tool used by successful people.
Give it a try. Eat, drink and sleep with your dreams constantly on your mind. Obsess about them and KNOW you can have whatever you want! Have a laser-beam focus on these dreams and never let off the gas pedal until they have been accomplished.

“Motivation You To Become The BEST Version of Yourself”
Has life ever handed you multiple complicated situations at once? All simultaneously entering your life from out of nowhere? It feels like you have no room to breath and have no clue where to start. Every direction you turn there seems to be another problem tacked onto your list. I know this feeling and I believe you do too!
It makes you want to SCREAM!!! The only two words that pop to mind are, “I’m overwhelmed”! The reasons for being overwhelmed are numerous. There are times when life just happens to simply be overwhelming, but there are there times we do it to ourselves. Sometimes we take on more than we can handle and end up doing MORE damage.
There will come a time when you simply just have to STOP! JUST STOP! Stop overthinking everything, chill out and take a DEEP breath. It’s going to be okay. Yes, you have responsibilities and matters to handle, but the most important thing here is to properly manage them and not beat yourself up along the way.
As I said before, there are MANY factors contributing to this level of STRESS which is why I encourage people to simply SLOW DOWN. Think about exactly WHAT is overwhelming you and WHY. From there, check to see if there are ways to limit the stress by breaking things down into little fragments. Prioritize that list by most important and then tackle the little fragments one-by-one.
Go through this process until everything that is NEEDED to be done, gets done! Take another break and restart the process with the other items left on the list. The key here is to “tread lightly” and slowly knock out what needs to be handled in a much more organized straight-forward manner; this will in turn reduce stress/anxiety.
Lastly, you have to remember WHY you STARTED! If you are stressed out because of school, remember what the initial goal was. Whether it was to attain credits, deepen your knowledge or attain a diploma, you must come back to that starting line. Remember WHY you wanted to reach this goal and remind yourself that it is ABSOLUTELY worth it! This can be applied to work, finances, relationships and spirituality. Take your time and really think things through. There may be a few “cuts” that may be necessary to eliminate some of the stress. Do what needs to be done so that your stress levels and the feeling of being overwhelmed are manageable.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SLOW DOWN and NEVER allow the stress/anxiety swallow you up so much your overwhelming feeling freezes you from taking action on anything. I hope this helps! I shot a corresponding video to this post and placed it on my Facebook fanpage, you can CHECK IT OUT HERE
