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!

Should You DO This? [IMPORTANT]

I come across A LOT of people who are experiencing some VERY challenging situations in life. They are hurting and sometimes just need a few words of encouragement to get them going in the right direction. Do you know anyone that is facing a tribulation? Have you ever been down and out before and just simply wanted a few words of encouragement?

If you are a human being, you have definitely seen some days that strike painful memories. Whether it is a loss of a close friend or family member, loss of a job, divorce, financial devastation, etc. Lets face it, we ALL have gone through some experiences in life that were not too pleasant. Some of you may be going through this heartache RIGHT NOW!

I bring this sensitive subject up because I would like to remind us all that the way we conduct ourselves ALSO affects the people around us. We do NOT know what the next person is facing or enduring at the current moment, so it’s important to remind ourselves that. Sometimes people can frustrate us and really get us worked up, but it’s NOT ALWAYS a personal thing directed to you. They could be internalizing something else and expressing it through their “not-so-pleasant” attitude.

I hear people say ALL the time that they are “misunderstood”. I believe we are ALL misunderstood to some degree because we naturally are private about certain things going on in our lives. Sometimes we close people off and shut down any interaction with the people we love. Sometimes they are the ones we hurt the most…

So my question is, should YOU do this?

Shouldn’t we at least TRY to be nice in our encounters with other people? Even if they are rude. We have a choice to simply walk away and not make the situation worse. I am not saying to allow people to toss all their garbage on you or mistreat you in any way be abusive, I am simply stating that we can at least be a little more understanding. WE all have “bad days” and take out our anger on the wrong people (sometimes unknowingly).

Anyway, my challenge for you today is to be NICE to everyone that comes in contact with you. Give it a try and see how much different you feel. I promise, it will NOT be easy at first, but it is definitely worth a shot!

Let me know you experiences!

To Your Massive Success,

Jimmylee
