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,
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 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!

To Your Massive Success,
Did you look at this? There is a little secret hidden in an old movie…
Remember that little quote from Snow White?
“Mirror mirror on the wall…”
It was a simple message of reflection.
We are nearing the years end and I thought it would be appropriate to encourage everyone to reflect on this past year.
Reflection… it is an extremely important personal development “must do”.
“What is the good of experience if you do not reflect.” – Frederick the Great
As we take-on the new year with new goals, it is imperative we stop and gather our experiences from 2014. Collect all the memories, experiences and lessons and use them as your foundation for 2015.
There were many things learned in this exciting year of 2014! It was packed with HUGE lessons that have made us ALL better people! We lost some loved ones, but gained some new ones.
2014 has been tremendously successful and overwhelmingly spiritual for me. My belief system was challenged to the max and is NOW stronger than ever! Mentally, I have stepped into another dimension of strength.
My compassion towards others has grown so much…I almost get emotional thinking about the lives the Wisdom Miners movement has touched…
With these experiences in our resume and ready to use at any moment, I believe this reflection has prepared us for 2015.
We are bigger and better than ever!
2015 is the mark of a new era! I have been saying this for 2 years now. 2013 was a year dedicated to studying and laying down a solid foundation. 2014 was the year of new start, fresh beginnings and taking action on our dreams (huge amounts of trial & error). And 2015 is the year we let it RIP!
I’m talking about EXPLOSIVE results and MASSIVE ABUNDANCE!
The timing has never been better! The last two years have been a preparation for 2015 (all my close friends & family know I have been talking about 2015 for the last 2 years).
This is OUR TIME to build an EMPIRE and leave our mark in history!
2015 WILL BE LEGENDARY!
Either your joining the movement or watching on the sidelines! THIS IS YOUR YEAR! It’s time to stand for your dreams and capitalize what God has blessed you with!
We are Children of the King…Lets act like it!

Tired of living paycheck to paycheck and committed to Ending Your Financial Sabotage?
I guess the first step to end the sabotage is to KNOW where you are today! Getting all the facts laid out on the table.
Some of the most common reasons are:
1. We compare ourselves to others.
Many people look around and feel “less than.” And they
wonder why they aren’t getting the breaks. Or they elevate
other people and think, I could never do that because I’m
not as outgoing, or attractive, or [fill-in-the-blank].
2. We live with a harsh inner dialogue.
There are roughly seven billion people on the planet at this
point, and only one YOU. If you’re doubting whether or not
you have something meaningful to offer, consider that no
one but you has had your experiences, your memories, your
ideas, your fears or your dreams. Feed a loving voice and
starve the voice that asks you “who you are” to do anything.
3. We procrastinate.
Many people have dreams and ideas but are paralyzed by fear,
if you are looking to make a change in your life it starts with
baby steps. Just do one small thing, take one positive step.
You don’t have to make it all happen today. But try to make
“Stand up to your obstacles and do something
about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you
think they have.” ~Norman Vincent Peale

PS: It all starts in your mind & this can help!
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.
