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.

The Process

IMG_6029There 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!!!

The Strangest Thing

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

Whatever It Takes

There have been so many obstacles that I have been confronted with this year in the pursuit of my dreams. I cannot even make up half the stuff that occurred, but some of the things are ridiculous. I do believe they were a test to see how bad I wanted to accomplish my goals.

We are ALL bombarded with random things that have us whispering “what in the world?!?” under our breath a bunch of times throughout the day. The operation of a single day is so complicated, but what ACTUALLY happens to us is simply relative to how we react to it.

I have come to the STRONG belief that life is simply whatever our opinion of it is…which kind of explains nothing…

Are we dealing with some complicated stuff here? Who knows!?!?

I mean, I have seen people with complete OPPOSITE views on life accomplish GREAT things, but they all had ONE thing in common…

Whatever it was they were pursuing, they wanted to achieve it more than anything. You see there has to be an imbalance when attaining your goals. You have to “sacrifice” other things and solely focus on your dreams if you plan to manifest them as fast as possible.

You have to want to do WHATEVER it takes!

For me, I have sacrificed all kinds of things to manifest my goals. Simply because my goals were MORE important (at the time) than the things I “Sacrificed”.

Attaining your dream life is not going to be easy…

This isn’t some “walk in the park” kind of deal. You are going to have to put in the WORK. And I don’t mind how harsh that sounds as it will only offend the weak.

Do whatever it takes!!!

I am not kidding here. To become the BEST version of yourself and attain GREATNESS, you will have to go through some difficult times. But I promise, the good times are around the corner! The good life is WELL worth the sacrifices, as it pays out for a LIFETIME!

So go out there and do WHATEVER IT TAKES to attain your dreams and live with no regrets doing it! Leave it ALL out on the field! The time is NOW!

I hope this helps and I am wishing you ALL a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Jimmylee
