This WILL NOT Make You Happy! [MUST READ]

There are SO many things that happen to us in life that make us smile. Whether it is a normal everyday event or something miraculous, life definitely knows how to keep things interesting. I believe it is ALL about perspective. How we view things will literally determine our overall experience here on earth.

We ALL know people that literally find the negative in EVERYTHING. No matter what the situation is, they are pointing out precisely what the problem is. What drives me absolutely crazy about this are the folks who never present a solution to the problem; they just enjoy pointing out the flaws. There is ONE thing I know about these people…they are NOT HAPPY!

There is something deep down inside that is making them miserable. The sad truth is, life will continue to “suck” for them, if they never see the glass half full. Like I mentioned before, it is ALL about how we view things. Have you ever seen one of those drawing or pictures that are optical illusions? Depending on what angle you are viewing the image determines what you see. That is basically the point I am trying to deliver when it comes to perspective.

That being said, there are false beliefs out there as to WHAT exactly makes people happy. True happiness comes from within. WE as people really decide what makes us happy, but there is an ideology out there that is literally ruining lives. It is the chase/attainment of physical things. The belief that materialistic things will make you happy. Now, before I get attacked by making this statement, let me explain.

Physical things can make you happy, but it is ONLY temporary. There is nothing “long-lasting” and enduring about material things. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with getting physical things and being happy about them, the point I am trying to make here is that, those feelings are only temporary. Once you get used to that new material object, you mind is already bored and thinking about the bigger and better model.

I discovered this truth on my own. I know people talk about it all the time, but I guess I had to learn the hard way for the lesson to really stick. I remember thinking, “if I could just make a certain amount of money, I will be happy”. Well, i’m sure you could imagine, that when I did finally hit that financial goal, I was happy for a solid month. After that, somehow, that money wasn’t enough and I stretched out my goal to a much higher figure.

We have to live in the moment and find happiness EVERY DAY, not every once in a while. This is the exact reason why material things will never cut it. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy new/fun things as much as the next man, but it NOT where we should be finding our happiness; it simply won’t last, and we are off seeking something bigger and better within a short period of time.

To be honest, I don’t want to drag this topic on, I just want to say that WE as people must find GENUINE happiness (for ourselves) and it is NOT found in material things. It can be found in relationships, career’s, events, spirituality, etc. I just want to enforce and hit on the notion that “physical” things are temporary and should be enjoyed, but not worshiped; this will NOT make you happy!

I hope this helps! Let me know your thoughts in the comment section. Also, if there is a topic you wish to hear my opinion on, simply email me (info@jimmyleevelez.com) or post it in the comment section.

“Motivating YOU to become the BEST version of yourself”

Advertisements

GET OUT!!!

Sometimes we have to be tough with ourselves and the people we love. I have people send me questions on a daily basis and most people are seeking out advice for a better life. One of the most common threads that I find, are that these people seem to already know the answer. I know that may sound kind of weird at first, but it’s true.

I believe we have within us everything we need to really become the BEST versions of ourselves. I do not want this to get twisted, so let me be clear about seeking council. You should always seek guidance and mentorship when making the “big” decisions, even if you know what is right in your heart. It helps to clarify your thoughts and give them even more support. This way you may make decisions with the utmost certainty.

Now, I really am not quite sure the EXACT reason these people ask me questions they know the answers to, but it just may be to verify their thoughts. Just like anything else, this too can get a little out of control. I hear some of there responses after I give them feedback that validate they know the answers already. Some folks continually need validation for their thoughts, which made me draw a very interesting conclusion.

They need to GET OUT of their own way. These people are LITERALLY complicating life into ways that are obnoxiously unnecessary. This can be one of our BIGGEST problems to advancing. All those crazy convoluted thoughts interfering the process will create havoc if not controlled.

Life tosses us enough obstacles, we should try and be less disruptive to reality. I am not trying to be insensitive here, I am bring you the RAW truth. Sometimes the only thing holding YOU back is YOU! We drag our feet as if we are scared to achieve our goals. We have an amplitude of excuses stored up for every solution and a weak belief that things will end up on a positive note.

I am not 100% why we do this, but know it cannot go on if we wish to become the BEST versions of ourselves. WE need to seriously get out of our own way and let our story unfold more naturally. If you are facing this issue, I suggest you let it go and STOP with the excuses. The excuses are ONLY hurting YOU!

I hope this helps guide you in a more precise direction towards your goals. Take the time to analyze your life and check to see of YOU are in YOUR own way. And if you are…GET OUT!!!

Ps. Stay tuned for the debut of The Motivation Files! Another teaser is to be released soon on my social media accounts (most likely Facebook) so make sure you friend request me and say hello!

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!!!
