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.

 

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!

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”

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
