There are so many aspects of life to consider when attempting to live one of complete fulfillment. There are numerous things to try, people to meet and places to visit; it can be an overwhelming thought. But how do you know you are living life to the fullest? How can we DEFINITELY tell we are manifesting a satisfying life?
I recently stumbled upon a Les Brown motivational video that left me in DEEP thought. I began reflecting INTENSELY about life and immediately made a few adjustments to my own life! I found it to be SO valuable I wanted to share it with you.
For those of you who are unaware, Mr. Les “You gotta be hungry!” Brown is a motivational speaker, radio DJ, former politician and author that has been impacting the personal development industry since the 1980’s. The man has a resume that will stand against the BEST! I HIGHLY recommend you get a hold of ANY material of his because it WILL create a paradigm shift and ultimately life-changing.
With that being said, here is the excerpt I was referring to…
“Imagine if you will being on your death bed – And standing around your bed – the ghosts of the ideas, the dreams, the abilities, the talents given to you by life.
And that you for whatever reason, you never acted on those ideas, you never pursued that dream, you never used those talents, we never saw your leadership, you never used your voice, you never wrote that book.
And there they are standing around your bed looking at you with large angry eyes saying we came to you, and only you could have given us life! Now we must die with you forever.
The question is – if you die today what ideas, what dreams, what abilities, what talents, what gifts, would die with you?” – Les Brown
Ummm…yeah…PROFOUND to say the least; you can see why this left me a bit perplexed in deep thought.
So now I challenge you…when it all ends…
“… what dreams, what abilities, what talents, what gifts, would die with you?”
It’s time to take note of the things that want to manifest themselves through you. What dreams have you put aside? What talents are you gifted with that the world does not know of? DO NOT leave any stone unturned! Take the time to seriously think about this and take immediate action on your dreams, abilities, talents and gifts!
I will leave you with these two Les Brown quotes that should get things started…
“You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers.”
“You cannot expect to achieve new goals or move beyond your present circumstances unless you change. ”
When it all ends…hopefully you will be able to say you gave this thing we call life, your very BEST shot!
To Your Massive Success,
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!

To Your Massive Success,
Jimmylee & The Crew!
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!
To Your Massive Success,
Ps. Keep on the look out for our launch of The masterMINDset, a mastermind group (http://masterMINDset.org) as well as my book, The Motivation Files, coming in December!
Did you look at this? There is a little secret hidden in an old movie…
Remember that little quote from Snow White?
“Mirror mirror on the wall…”
It was a simple message of reflection.
We are nearing the years end and I thought it would be appropriate to encourage everyone to reflect on this past year.
Reflection… it is an extremely important personal development “must do”.
“What is the good of experience if you do not reflect.” – Frederick the Great
As we take-on the new year with new goals, it is imperative we stop and gather our experiences from 2014. Collect all the memories, experiences and lessons and use them as your foundation for 2015.
There were many things learned in this exciting year of 2014! It was packed with HUGE lessons that have made us ALL better people! We lost some loved ones, but gained some new ones.
2014 has been tremendously successful and overwhelmingly spiritual for me. My belief system was challenged to the max and is NOW stronger than ever! Mentally, I have stepped into another dimension of strength.
My compassion towards others has grown so much…I almost get emotional thinking about the lives the Wisdom Miners movement has touched…
With these experiences in our resume and ready to use at any moment, I believe this reflection has prepared us for 2015.
We are bigger and better than ever!
2015 is the mark of a new era! I have been saying this for 2 years now. 2013 was a year dedicated to studying and laying down a solid foundation. 2014 was the year of new start, fresh beginnings and taking action on our dreams (huge amounts of trial & error). And 2015 is the year we let it RIP!
I’m talking about EXPLOSIVE results and MASSIVE ABUNDANCE!
The timing has never been better! The last two years have been a preparation for 2015 (all my close friends & family know I have been talking about 2015 for the last 2 years).
This is OUR TIME to build an EMPIRE and leave our mark in history!
2015 WILL BE LEGENDARY!
Either your joining the movement or watching on the sidelines! THIS IS YOUR YEAR! It’s time to stand for your dreams and capitalize what God has blessed you with!
We are Children of the King…Lets act like it!
Please comment, like & share if you feel 2015 is going to be YOUR BEST YEAR EVER!

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

PS: It all starts in your mind & this can help!
Which means, a new week, new goals, new challenges and new successes.
I would have to say a person is naïve to think every single day will go as perfectly planned. Especially if you are out there trying new things. The good thing about Monday is that it is a FRESH START!
Forget about last weeks failures, you should view them as lessons anyway! Smell the excitement and zest in the air! That odor when you open up a brand new pair of sneakers (tennis shoes)…ahhh the scent of a new journey!
You WILL face new challenges this week, but that only means you are GROWING as a person! All these “challenges” you encounter will simply be added on to your resume as experience.
Never get offended by new challenges; embrace them!
This week set up a small NEW goal to complete by the end of the week! Even if you already have weekly goals, set something new up to accomplish! Something small…something attainable. Maybe it’s something you have been putting off for a while, make that a priority this week!
I say that because, I talk to people ALL the time who literally have the same goals week-in & week-out. Although some of them are absolutely crucial for their success, these people are finding themselves absolutely BORED with life…things are just monotonous.
This will lead to a discouraging path…
Some folks will even QUIT because of the lack of excitement they have created for themselves. Remember, this whole thing we call life is ALL under your control…
“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” – Albert Einstein
Get that NEW goal out there on paper! Go after it with excitement and create NEW SUCCESSES this week!
Make this your BIGGEST week EVER!!!
New Week. New Goals. New Challenges. New Successes.
Thanks for all the comments, likes & shares! I really appreciate how fast the word is spreading about the Wisdom Miners Movement!

With all your goal setting you are doing preparing for the new year, why not EXPECT A MIRACLE?
So what is a miracle? Well according to Wikipedia,
“A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws.”
I do not mean simply waiting around all day meditating for something to happen. This will cause you absolute frustration!
What I am implying here is to continue to work towards your goals, as taking action on them will bring you closer, but alter your expectations.
If you have a goal of generating $250,000/year, then I would take ALL the action necessary to attain that. But now I want you to bundle up your mindset with expecting a miracle. So let’s say the miracle would be your business supernaturally generates $1,000,000/year!
Because expecting a miracle stretches the imagination. It gets you to think and dream bigger! Also, the benefit of it being a miracle, you are not worried about the “how”.
In my experience with working with people, I have noticed that when it comes to setting goals, people have a hard time DREAMING BIG. I concluded it’s because they think of their past results. They have many mental blocks that stop them from seeing how they could accomplish bigger goals. These mental barriers then turn into disbelief and the whole goal setting thing goes down the drain.
Setting goals and dream building is an “inside job”. You have to belief in yourself enough to envision yourself accomplishing the impossible. The thing with goals setting is that it presents the person with a “challenge” that they have to overcome. Depending on the person, some folks fold and others take it head on.
Expect A Miracle!
I say to people, hold the belief of you achieving your goals. Develop an action plan on how you are going to attain those goals. Take consistent/persistent action on that plan. Constantly think about you achieving that goal…day in & day out…See yourself accomplishing what you have set out to do. Lastly, expect a miracle!
When I say expect a miracle, I don’t mean get lazy and stop taking action because you think someone or something is going to save you. I mean this in a fun way. When you expect a miracle your paradigm shifts on what is possible. Like I said before, you forget about the “how” (which is A LOT of people’s hang up on accomplishing their dreams). At the end of the day, “expecting a miracle” is a STRATEGY.
Expecting a miracle makes the day seem a lot lighter and fun! Your worry seems to lesson and your joy seems to increase. You tend to forget “how” you will get to your goal, you just “know” it will happen.
ATTENTION: These are ALL qualities a person NEEDS to attain ANY Goal! Now you see the benefit of expecting a miracle? Now you see why I call it a strategy?
So my friend, expect a miracle! Just try it for a week and see what happens to your thought-process. And if it doesn’t shift your thinking, go back to your previous strategies.
Please comment & share on Facebook the good word if you feel compelled to!
