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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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!

There is something special about “the process” of attaining goals that we must not overlook. It is a very important aspect of life we should reflect on daily. The process reveals so many insights about ourselves and generates information we can build on.
We should ALL have in place little indicators or triggers that remind us to STOP and take in the process. Sometimes we are so busy with life that we tend to slip up the details, rush through the little things and ultimately miss out on critical information.
I am currently putting together THE BEST podcast I possibly can to be released this month. Because I have a certain level of expectancy, “the process” is taking a little longer than expected. However, the process is lending to some interesting lessons I will cherish FOREVER. The great part about “the process” for the release/launch of my podcast is that everyone involved is learning.
We had to take a few steps back and even “start over” some of the recordings because of little details we discovered along the way. I realized that it is indeed okay to start over and re-do certain things to get a more polished product. It’s important to NOT get too caught up in the completion of things MORE than being thorough in your work. Sometimes we get so stressed out over deadlines that we force ourselves to release products/information before its completely developed or thought out.
Prior proper planning is another aspect of “the process” that has made a HUGE difference in the production of my podcast. Coming up with an itinerary and discussing information with the crew before recordings has made a WORLD of a difference; the quality of the podcast has gone through the roof.
The last lesson I learned during “the process” is getting the proper tools from the beginning is crucial. Having professional equipment for the podcast made the team take this project very serious. In turn, the final product is proving to be more professional and has an element of increased value it would not have if it was just “thrown together”.
As I stated before, the beautiful part of “the process” is that everyone involved is learning something. We are growing together and building stronger bonds with one another. Simply stated, the process is invaluable. The cool part about creating and launching my podcast is that there is SO MUCH more to learn and even more exciting experiences to reflect on.
That being said, The Rotated Views podcast will be released at the end of this month. I look forward to sharing MORE exciting news with you in the weeks to come. STAY TUNED!!!

To Your Massive Success,
As we enter 2016, I wanted to put something together that I learned in 2015. It was something I already knew, but this years results, BLEW MY MIND!
Since this will be the LAST blog post for 2015, I wanted to give you something REAL value. Something that will set you up for success in 2016.
There are SO many “keys” people contribute to success to that it has now clear to everyone that the road to success is an individual journey. Everyone will have different experiences and apply their own “keys” in life to attain victory.
I have notebooks jammed packed with “The Key To Success” written at the top of the optimistic pages in my attempt to quench my hunger for “the truth”. Some of these “keys” do work and others are missing information and generally misleading.
I wanted to give you something that WILL WORK no matter the path to success you take. There is a LOT of junk out there spreading confusion to audiences worldwide. It’s bad for the people and I want to change that once and for all!
Ultimately, you have to understand that this is YOUR journey and there will be none like it. You may be able to relate to folks and apply pointer’s from them, but the truth is, you will have to figure it out yourself. What works for you, may not work for me. Even if someone were to give you a step by step playbook, there will ALWAYS be a variable in the equation. YOU.
You are unique in every way, including your journey to the top. Knowing yourself is extremely critical to your success. Capitalizing on your strengths and working on your weaknesses, you will face situations only YOU can solve.
Now that I have made that clear, I want to share “the secret sauce”. What I love about “the secret sauce” is that EVERYONE has access to it at absolutely NO COST! In fact, you CREATE “the secret sauce” yourself. This is what I love most about it. It’s available for ANYONE who makes a serious decision to use it and change their lives FOREVER!
So, what is “the secret sauce”?
That’s it! The secret sauce is momentum.
Momentum is an extremely POWERFUL tool the most successful people in the world use to achieve RAPID RESULTS. It carries with it a weight that cannot even be measured.
Momentum comes with a forceful influx of energy. This energy can be used in various ways, but it’s important the majority of it be used in actions that will either maintain or progress the momentum.
Maintaining momentum actually takes LESS effort than getting it started. Getting things started can be a rough time, but the rewards are well worth the efforts. It can be absolutely tiring, but once certain things are in place, momentum will assist you in the efforts. This is why I call it “The Secret Sauce”!
Why not have help along the way?
Things can get exhausting, but having momentum will allow you BRIEF resting periods without losing much of your pace. These resting periods cannot be TOO LONG or momentum will eventually come to a halt.
How do you get momentum?
It’s ONE day at a time. Simply conquer today and do EVERYTHING you can to attain your goals. Push the limits each and everyday. Do it for a full-week. From there, do it for two full-weeks. We are creatures of habits and if you could JUST tap into this powerful source, momentum will pick up & results will begin pouring in! After your third week, you will begin seeing momentum tag along with habits.
The special thing about momentum is that I can promise you, you will feel completely MOTIVATED to do MORE; to take more action. It’s exciting because once you get enough momentum, even your “not so productive” days will seem as though so much is being accomplished.
The funny thing about momentum is that it is addicting. You do NOT want to let the momentum slow down or peter out. Once it starts going, keep it alive as long as possible! You will accomplish so much in such little time, it will amaze you.
This secret sauce will add to the motivation factor, yielding results that will blow your mind in 2016! Go out there and begin to create momentum in your life, as it will make a world of differences in your results.
THANK YOU for ALL of your love & support in 2015! I wanted to end on a strong note and this post is an piece that did not make the final cut of my book, The Motivation Files (which is to be released in a few days).
Lets make 2016 BIGGER & BETTER than ANY year prior!
To Your Massive Success,
There are so many questions I receive when it comes to goal setting. Goal setting is a tricky thing and can be butchered EASILY if not approached in the correct manner. Most people understand the BASICS when it comes to goal setting, so I will NOT bore you with that topic. BUT…I do want to elaborate on some STICKY STUFF when it comes to goals.
I have witnessed people make BOLD goals at the beginning of this year and seen the MAJORITY of them “fall off” or “give up” on them within the first several months of the new year. So I asked myself a very basic question, WHY do most people QUIT or FAIL when it comes to achieving their goals?
After a few months of pondering this question, I saw the answer appear in my own life. I set a goal to accomplish something I NEVER did before and really had no idea what I was doing. One thing I DID have was the faith that this goal would manifest in my life…SOMEHOW.
Interestingly enough, I set a VERY specific time frame for this project and stuck to that time frame. I wanted to accomplish the goal by September of this year, it was mid-February at the time. A ton of trials and tribulations occurred in the MEAT of my process of achieving this goal, but I kept hacking away.
I simply kept my focus and faith on HIGH GEAR and just KNEW it would come to pass. Did I have doubts? YES! Did I think I was a bit out of my mind (CRAZY)? YES! Did things appear to be falling apart right before my eyes? YES! Were there OTHER people doubting me and telling me it wouldn’t happen? YES!
I simply STUCK to my goal no matter what was going on around me. I never wavered the dream nor compromised the vision. I knew if I would just STICK to what the goal was, it WOULD happen. And guess what??? IT DID! I met the goal and accomplished the dream!
So what was the secret? I simply STUCK with my goal. No matter what was going on with the process, I BELIEVED in the dream. Things got a little sketchy at times, but I held my ground and the reality was, I accomplished the goal on the VERY LAST day of September! That’s right, I met the goal I set back in February. It has become a reality all because I STUCK with it.
So many people simply BAIL on their goals and dreams and wonder WHY their life has not manifested into the DREAM they envisioned. Simply sticking with what you set out to do, will get you MILES further than ALWAYS quitting or using excuses as to why it CANNOT happen. Stick to your guns and make it happen! ANYTHING is possible and DREAMS DO COME TRUE!
So what was the goal set and dream accomplished? THE MOTIVATION FILES! This is a professionally mastered album containing Music & Motivation to HELP YOU get things done! Simply put, “Motivation To Master Your Day”. It contains 13 tracks of PURE MOTIVATIONAL GREATNESS!!!

To Your Massive Success,
Are you into getting surprised? I am not much of a fan, but I will say, sometimes surprises have delighted me. Over the past 9 years, I have noticed something very interesting in attaining my goals. Something that I thought would be beneficial for you, if I shared.
When I was introduced to the Personal Development Industry back in 2006, I was hammered with all kinds of methods on goal setting and living the life of your dreams. They showed me how to put a dream board together and even go out “Dream building”. I was absolutely captivated by this new material.
It was exciting to know I could craft my life. But was fascinated me MOST, was that I could have BIG DREAMS and not feel weird about it. My parents always encouraged us to go after whatever it was we wanted in life. They created an atmosphere of being optimistic about the future. So when I was introduced to the personal development arena, DREAMING was the first thing that got my attention.
Fast-forward 9 years later and I have accomplished SO MANY of my goals/dreams it actually blows my mind! The funny thing about MOST of them is that they didn’t pan out EXACTLY how I had imagined! In fact, the majority of my dreams manifested even BETTER than I ever even thought they would!
A huge proponent to this is the persistent and consistent methods of dreaming I was doing. Some dreams took longer to unfold than others, but I still stuck with it and that is the message I wanted to share with you!
IF you simply just KEEP doing this, life will surprise you! KEEP DREAMING! No matter how things panned out for you in the past, you have to stick with your goals. I noticed that if I kept dreaming about accomplishing my goals, they eventually manifested in my life. Obviously, there was A LOT of action that took place, on my end, but I was persistent and consistent in the pursuit.
Throughout time, my dreams developed and changed into bigger and better ones. If they didn’t manifest in the time frame I thought they would, i just adjusted the goal and kept on dreaming! I believed in my dreams and STILL believe in my dreams, which is why I have accomplished so many of them.
It’s important we have BIG DREAMS that we actually believe in. This belief is the component that trigger’s manifestation.
If you simply stick with your DREAMS, life WILL surprise you…and I am sure you will be just as delighted as I was! Just stay with it and DREAM BIG!
I hope you found this helpful!
To YOUR Massive Success,
Ps. The Motivation Files (Album) will be released this FALL 2015. This project WILL help you to become the BEST version of yourself! Stay tuned!
Which means, a new week, new goals, new challenges and new successes.
I would have to say a person is naïve to think every single day will go as perfectly planned. Especially if you are out there trying new things. The good thing about Monday is that it is a FRESH START!
Forget about last weeks failures, you should view them as lessons anyway! Smell the excitement and zest in the air! That odor when you open up a brand new pair of sneakers (tennis shoes)…ahhh the scent of a new journey!
You WILL face new challenges this week, but that only means you are GROWING as a person! All these “challenges” you encounter will simply be added on to your resume as experience.
Never get offended by new challenges; embrace them!
This week set up a small NEW goal to complete by the end of the week! Even if you already have weekly goals, set something new up to accomplish! Something small…something attainable. Maybe it’s something you have been putting off for a while, make that a priority this week!
I say that because, I talk to people ALL the time who literally have the same goals week-in & week-out. Although some of them are absolutely crucial for their success, these people are finding themselves absolutely BORED with life…things are just monotonous.
This will lead to a discouraging path…
Some folks will even QUIT because of the lack of excitement they have created for themselves. Remember, this whole thing we call life is ALL under your control…
“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” – Albert Einstein
Get that NEW goal out there on paper! Go after it with excitement and create NEW SUCCESSES this week!
Make this your BIGGEST week EVER!!!
New Week. New Goals. New Challenges. New Successes.
Thanks for all the comments, likes & shares! I really appreciate how fast the word is spreading about the Wisdom Miners Movement!

With all your goal setting you are doing preparing for the new year, why not EXPECT A MIRACLE?
So what is a miracle? Well according to Wikipedia,
“A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws.”
I do not mean simply waiting around all day meditating for something to happen. This will cause you absolute frustration!
What I am implying here is to continue to work towards your goals, as taking action on them will bring you closer, but alter your expectations.
If you have a goal of generating $250,000/year, then I would take ALL the action necessary to attain that. But now I want you to bundle up your mindset with expecting a miracle. So let’s say the miracle would be your business supernaturally generates $1,000,000/year!
Because expecting a miracle stretches the imagination. It gets you to think and dream bigger! Also, the benefit of it being a miracle, you are not worried about the “how”.
In my experience with working with people, I have noticed that when it comes to setting goals, people have a hard time DREAMING BIG. I concluded it’s because they think of their past results. They have many mental blocks that stop them from seeing how they could accomplish bigger goals. These mental barriers then turn into disbelief and the whole goal setting thing goes down the drain.
Setting goals and dream building is an “inside job”. You have to belief in yourself enough to envision yourself accomplishing the impossible. The thing with goals setting is that it presents the person with a “challenge” that they have to overcome. Depending on the person, some folks fold and others take it head on.
Expect A Miracle!
I say to people, hold the belief of you achieving your goals. Develop an action plan on how you are going to attain those goals. Take consistent/persistent action on that plan. Constantly think about you achieving that goal…day in & day out…See yourself accomplishing what you have set out to do. Lastly, expect a miracle!
When I say expect a miracle, I don’t mean get lazy and stop taking action because you think someone or something is going to save you. I mean this in a fun way. When you expect a miracle your paradigm shifts on what is possible. Like I said before, you forget about the “how” (which is A LOT of people’s hang up on accomplishing their dreams). At the end of the day, “expecting a miracle” is a STRATEGY.
Expecting a miracle makes the day seem a lot lighter and fun! Your worry seems to lesson and your joy seems to increase. You tend to forget “how” you will get to your goal, you just “know” it will happen.
ATTENTION: These are ALL qualities a person NEEDS to attain ANY Goal! Now you see the benefit of expecting a miracle? Now you see why I call it a strategy?
So my friend, expect a miracle! Just try it for a week and see what happens to your thought-process. And if it doesn’t shift your thinking, go back to your previous strategies.
Please comment & share on Facebook the good word if you feel compelled to!
