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 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,
This is indeed strange and I am not exactly sure what lead me to write on this specific post. It has ALWAYS been an interesting topic to me and I think it mainly had to do with a very interesting audio clip I heard that was produced in the 50’s. Yes, that is it! This strange thing I want to talk about comes from a timeless teaching.
The lesson was originally recorded on a record and has been distribution to millions of people worldwide. It is titled, “The Strangest Secret” by Earl Nightingale. The funny part about the title is that this “secret” is not strange nor is it much of a secret. I mean think about it, if it was publicly released and millions of people heard it, why does it sound so foreign to us?
So what is the “strangest secret” is that you become what you think about.
“Everything you and I will ever have will come to us as the result of the way we use our minds, the one thing we possess that makes us different from all other creatures.” – Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
“Every one of us is the sum total of our own thoughts.” – Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
Look around, most of whatever you see is a direct result of your thoughts. I do not want to go deep into the Law of Attraction, but I highly recommend you study it. It is a universal law, much like the law of gravity, therefore it is worth researching and understanding.
So if you look around and do not like what you see, stop and think about The Strangest Secret before you start blaming other people. Your very own thinking has produced the life you are currently looking. Now I know this is a very HARSH thing for people to grasp, but it’s the hard truth!
I put out a quote on social media recently that touched on this very subject. It was along the lines of, “Everything you and I will ever have will come to us as the result of the way we use our minds, the one thing we possess that makes us different from all other creatures.” – Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
If you think negative things, negative things will be your result. If you put JUNK in your mind, only JUNK can come out. We cannot plant an apple seed and expect an orange tree to grow. In the same way, we cannot flood our brains with trash and expect to produce gold.
“You are what you think about.”- Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
I do not want to regurgitate what Nightingale says, so I HIGHLY recommend you find The Strangest Secret recording and listen to it NUMEROUS times; it is well worth your investment. Instead, I will leave you with a priceless piece of advice by the man himself and expect for you to follow-up on this recording yourself. This recording WILL change your life!
“Prosperity is founded upon a law of mutual exchange. Any person who contributes to prosperity must prosper, in turn, himself. Sometimes the return will not come from those you serve, but it must come to you from someplace, for that is the law.”- Earl Nightingale, The Strangest Secret
To Your Massive Success,
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,
PS. Keep on the look out for “teasers” of The Motivation Files coming around soon! The project WILL be released this Fall and you will be one of the FIRST to be informed, so STAY TUNED! This is going to be exciting!!!
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!
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
Focus on helping others and Make it a great day!
