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.

 

This ONE Thing Changed EVERYTHING!!!

I have been on my personal development journey since 2006 and there is ONE thing I want to share with you that LITERALLY CHANGED EVERYTHING for me! Once you get this ONE THING, you will be an unstoppable force. Once you get a hold of this, it’s almost like you HACKED LIFE itself!

When you first start setting goals or trying to change things around in general, you are faced with MANY questions. I know for me, self-doubt annihilated more dreams than ANYTHING else! It was extremely hard for me to envision success without knowing exactly how I was going to achieve it. It was definitely a FRUSTRATING time for me.

If you are currently changing your life for the better and trying to improve yourself, I want to help you RIGHT NOW! I want you to SKIP months and maybe even years of frustration with this ONE concept!

Here it is:

If ANYTHING is going to change in you life, it’s up to YOU to change it!

I know that may sound a little cliche, but stick with me here. There are some folks out there with the lottery mentality who think that “ONE DAY” money or success is just going to fall into their lap. And while that “slight” chance that “might” happen, the odds are so ridiculous, it’s very unlikely.

To top that off, why in the world would you want to place you life in someone else’s hands? Why let someone else determine your destiny when you have COMPLETE CONTROL over it! If YOU want to “turn things around”, you are going to have to do the work yourself! You have the ability and gifts to live the life of your dreams; you just have to put in a little elbow grease.

Understand how powerful you are! Nothing is impossible and in order for things to become “possible”, you are going to have to get a grip on things. Stop waiting around for some “miracle” to happen and get on with it. The problem with “miracles” is that the majority of people have completely misunderstood the definition. It has been overused and abused over centuries so much that it has evolved into an “impossibility” (not even sure if that’s a word).

Here’s the thing, we are surrounded my miracles every day, we just don’t recognize them or appreciate their value. We messed up the definition somewhere along the way and are now overlooking HUGE opportunities to capitalize on EVERYDAY!

Professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek coined the phrase, “create your own luck”. This goes back to my original point, that if anything is going to change, it’s up to YOU to change it. STOP WAITING AROUND when the power of CHANGE is in your hands! Take responsibility in life, grab hold of some ambition buried deep down inside of you, and MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

Guys, I promise you, when you REALLY understand this concept…THE WORLD IS YOURS! Think deeply about this and really soak it in. This is a REALITY that changed EVERYTHING for me, once I understood its power!

I hope this helps! Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below. Also, if there is ANYTHING else I can do to help..PLEASE do not hesitate to let me know. Email me at info@jimmyleevelez.com

Lastly, I want to take the time to announce that my book, The Motivation Files will be released this December! The book is going to elaborate on the topics mentioned in the album for a unique combination; simply stated, the book will compliment the album.

Thanks again for stopping by!!!

“Motivating You To Become The BEST Version of Yourself”

It’s Right In Front Of You…TAKE IT! [MUST READ]

This is ALWAYS in front of us! I am not sure whether we are blind to it or distracted by other things, but OPPORTUNITY really never goes away. Of course, there are different levels of how big or small these opportunities are, but that is not to say they aren’t in our face 24/7.

Really the decision is up to us to capitalize on the various opportunities that are presented to us. A small example would be to say hello to a random patron and spark a conversation at the train station. This may turn into absolutely nothing, but on the other hand, it has the potential to be something GREAT!

In that example you see that there was a decision that needed to be made.

1. Keep to yourself and not say anything

2. Extend your hand and say hello

After the decision in your mind is made, ACTION must take place to properly execute the capitalization of an opportunity. You see, we can have ALL the opportunities in the world, but they literally mean nothing if we take no action.

Decisions must lead into actions or they will simply be thoughts.

I hear people talking ALL the time about how “LUCKY” other folks are in life because they had better opportunities. While this may be true in some cases, it shouldn’t be the reason why you don’t capitalize on your own chances. That is a a subtle excuse people use to make themselves feel better. And even if the “some cases” is true, WHO CARES!?! Complaining about it won’t get you anywhere but to the doorstep of frustration!

There is a famous actor/businessman/professional skateboarder named Rob Dyrdek who coined the phrase, “Make Your Own Luck”.

I have to say, that at first I found this phrase to be a little challenging, but after some thought and experiences of my own, I believe there is perfect reason why this is true. I noticed that when I jumped on an opportunity and really worked my tail off, more opportunities (some even bigger) came my way. I believe that it was because how the universe works. The law of attraction, karma, whatever you want to call it, happened.

I was getting rewarded for my efforts. Even though, sometimes all my work didn’t lead to the results i had initially intended, things began to change. I believe things happen for a reason, so our thoughts on HOW life SHOULD pan out really do not matter.

The Big Guy upstairs is in control and that means mysterious things can happen at ANY given moment. That is why I want to challenge you to jump on SOME kind of opportunity today. And is you cannot find one, you are NOT trying hard enough.

Here is some help. Try thinking about FIRST helping someone else (without expecting something in return), I promise you, this will get the ball rolling!

Jump on an opportunity today and see where it takes you! Good “Luck”

To Your Massive Success,

Jimmylee
