A College Degree, A Porsche & A Vacation

Sounds like a dream life, doesn’t it? Well it is…but it is also possible…

My friend was able to attain his bachelors degree, purchase a Porsche, and take multiple vacations within ONE YEAR! Do I have your attention? Even just a little bit? If you want to hear a snippet of his story, check out Episode 6 of the Rotated Views Podcast RIGHT HERE. I do not want to make my friends story sound like an overnight success. There were YEARS put into attaining his dreams and you can learn more about them in the podcast.

You will hear the MAIN TOPIC, Never Give Up, throughout the episode and our perspectives on it, but I wanted to give a little more insight and shed some light on the most OVERLOOKED (in my opinion) topic.

If you ask me, “never giving up” is a mentality. There are certain factors that contribute to this mindset and WILL deliver the goods if applied properly.

Have you ever given up on something AND regret your decision?

I say forget it and move on. Placing regret on the matter will NOT improve it or move you any closer to fixing the problem. Plus, I am a FIRM believer in that things happen for a reason. The key here is to learn the lesson and use the new knowledge when applicable; that is the TRUE essence of never giving up!

The secret is to tap into your WHY. Whenever you feel like quitting, my recommendation is that you REMEMBER WHY YOU STARTED. If you can create a method that will constantly remind you of your WHY, quitting something will become EXTREMELY difficult.

You have to be able to answer this question at the crossroads of quitting…

what will be worse, the pain of continuing the pursuit and eventually reach you goals or the pain of giving up and NEVER achieving your dreams?

Regardless of how tired you are, KEEP AT IT! Keep pushing towards your goals EVERY single day. Never cave in. Fight through the pain. Never give up!

I hope this helps you out a bit. Do forget to DOWNLOAD, SUBSCRIBE, & REVIEW The Rotated Views Podcast (which has been ranked in the top 50 podcasts, in the society/culture category)

P.S. For some clarification, there ARE some things you must give up, but this varies by situation and I recommend a consultant, mentor or life coach for such delicate matters.

 

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.

 

ONE Tip To Help Manifest Almost ANYTHING

There are many books and other resources out there that go into explicit details on goal setting and attain your dream life. Since I have been studying “the game”, I noticed that there is a LOT of JUNK out there that is really just leading people in the wrong direction. I can make that strong statement because I am a living testament to it.

I seriously cannot stand when “guru’s” give their opinions on things they NEVER even did or experienced. To top it off they give “advice” to people as if they are factual when in reality it is all just hypothetical. They jump on their soapbox and go off on subject matter they inflate with false ideas and misdirection. It actually kind of sad to be honest.

Sadly, it doesn’t stop there. They then sell products and services to innocent people (who truly want to make a change in their life) for RIDICULOUS amounts of money that contain shallow, reiterated garbage and useless information. Their secret is this…give people SO MUCH information, they feel inundated and quite literally get overwhelmed by the obnoxious amounts of frivolous data, that they simply quit. Then these “guru’s” will say, “you didn’t follow the steps, that’s why you failed”. Oh and let’s dress this product or service with attracting beautiful packaging to REALLY convince people this stuff is the REAL DEAL. I mean it’s the equivalent of putting a tuxedo on a garbage can stuffed with smelly trash.

Unfortunately, these “guru’s” get away with schemes like this on  daily basis. INFORMATION OVERLOAD. It makes people feel incompetent and undeserving of their dream life; which is the EXACT opposite of what the personal development industry should be creating.

Let me stop the rant before I frustrate myself even more.

That being said, I wanted to share with you a tip I have been using for years to manifest the things I wanted to appear in my life. Now, it may sound a bit weird at first (if you never heard of it before), but stick with me here.

Here is the tip: Obsess over what it is you want

Creepy stuff right? This is obviously intended to be utilized in a healthy manner and I will help you do just that.

Recently, I have been fascinated about a specific smart watch. I would watch video tutorials and stare at images of this smart watch daily. I would look at accessories and even place them in the “cart” as if I already owned the smart watch. I had things listed and written down that I would purchased when I get this particular smart watch. I would tell people about it and almost drool over it whenever I saw one. I picked the color schemes I wanted and even cut out newspaper ads of the smart watch. I registered to become a “product tester” and even entered in contest to win this particular smart watch. I was simply obsessed.

Finally, after 2-3 weeks of obsessing over this particular smart watch, it manifested itself into my life. I am now the proud owner of this particular smart watch and even own the exact model I dreamed about. I am extremely happy and grateful for being so blessed.

I know this example may seem a bit shallow because I am talking about something materialistic, but it was easy to make my point in an understandable way.

That being said, I believe you can manifest the life you crave, if you simply add this tool to the collection. I am NOT saying this is the ONLY thing you need, but it is a real tool used by successful people.

Give it a try. Eat, drink and sleep with your dreams constantly on your mind. Obsess about them and KNOW you can have whatever you want! Have a laser-beam focus on these dreams and never let off the gas pedal until they have been accomplished.

“Motivation You To Become The BEST Version of Yourself”

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”

I’M OVERWHELMED!

Has life ever handed you multiple complicated situations at once? All simultaneously entering your life from out of nowhere? It feels like you have no room to breath and have no clue where to start. Every direction you turn there seems to be another problem tacked onto your list. I know this feeling and I believe you do too!

It makes you want to SCREAM!!! The only two words that pop to mind are, “I’m overwhelmed”! The reasons for being overwhelmed are numerous. There are times when life just happens to simply be overwhelming, but there are there times we do it to ourselves. Sometimes we take on more than we can handle and end up doing MORE damage.

There will come a time when you simply just have to STOP! JUST STOP! Stop overthinking everything, chill out and take a DEEP breath. It’s going to be okay. Yes, you have responsibilities and matters to handle, but the most important thing here is to properly manage them and not beat yourself up along the way.

As I said before, there are MANY factors contributing to this level of STRESS which is why I encourage people to simply SLOW DOWN. Think about exactly WHAT is overwhelming you and WHY. From there, check to see if there are ways to limit the stress by breaking things down into little fragments. Prioritize that list by most important and then tackle the little fragments one-by-one.

Go through this process until everything that is NEEDED to be done, gets done! Take another break and restart the process with the other items left on the list. The key here is to “tread lightly” and slowly knock out what needs to be handled in a much more organized straight-forward manner; this will in turn reduce stress/anxiety.

Lastly, you have to remember WHY you STARTED! If you are stressed out because of school, remember what the initial goal was. Whether it was to attain credits, deepen your knowledge or attain a diploma, you must come back to that starting line. Remember WHY you wanted to reach this goal and remind yourself that it is ABSOLUTELY worth it! This can be applied to work, finances, relationships and spirituality. Take your time and really think things through. There may be a few “cuts” that may be necessary to eliminate some of the stress. Do what needs to be done so that your stress levels and the feeling of being overwhelmed are manageable.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE SLOW DOWN and NEVER allow the stress/anxiety swallow you up so much your overwhelming feeling freezes you from taking action on anything. I hope this helps! I shot a corresponding video to this post and placed it on my Facebook fanpage, you can CHECK IT OUT HERE

What A Tease!

IMG_1849

As promised, I wanted to share with you guys a “sneak peek” (teaser) of my latest project, The Motivation Files. Here I have compiled some of my best material. The subtitle, “Motivation To Master Your Day” was my EXACT aim for this project. If you need just a little boost during the day and really get things done, this is your answer.

I do not want to totally spill the beans, but I promised I would share a “teaser” with you guys in August, so here it is. The audio file was too big (I probably have to figure something else out) to load here on the site, but you can CLICK HERE to listen.

I really hope you enjoy this teaser and also wish for you to stick around to see the release of the FULL project this September! We have been working very hard behind the scenes and are very proud of The Motivation Files. I will ALSO be releasing my book, (The Motivation Files, How To Motivate Yourself & Master Your Day) sometime this Fall. The book will compliment the album and will basically be a tool for you to become a better version of yourself.

Anyway, make sure you check out the teaser and let me know what you think!!!

I Encountered Something Fascinating

While on the path to achieving my dreams I have encountered something fascinating I want to share with you. I have been passionately focused on manifesting one of my childhood dreams and stumbled upon a little gem of knowledge EVERYONE should be aware of.

Life is going to throw us curveballs every once in a while that will test our determination. I know a lot of people that base their next move on “feelings” and wanted to make sure they are not “missing out” on massive results.
I believe things happen for a reason and it is our duty to dissect that matter at hand. Roadblocks have a role in this process and are not always there to necessarily stop us. Sometimes they are in place to simply slow us down or test us.
Some of my greatest outcomes have been manifested because of my unwillingness to give up. I have found that the harder I push through the obstacles, the better the result. Now, I am not saying to be a “hard head” and not pick out the “clear” signs of defeat, but we also cannot fold at the first point of adversity.
Good effort must be given for good results. Great passionate efforts of excellence will eventually be rewarded as well. The key here is to “know thyself”.
If you KNOW your end result and are convinced it is your destiny, then by all means, make it happen. But if you are struggling with something continuously, it is a good idea to step back and analyze the situation.
I have “rolled with the punches” throughout this process and have realized these challenges were in place to test how “bad” I wanted the outcome. Interestingly enough, a better version of my initial plans has resulted.
So I want to PUSH everyone out there pursuing their dreams to put their “feelings” aside during times of adversity and truly dissect the challenge. It just may be a “test” to see how “bad” YOU want it! Never give up and continue to push forward. You are closer than you think!

To Your Massive Success,

Jimmylee
