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.

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

Sticky Stuff!

There are so many questions I receive when it comes to goal setting. Goal setting is a tricky thing and can be butchered EASILY if not approached in the correct manner. Most people understand the BASICS when it comes to goal setting, so I will NOT bore you with that topic. BUT…I do want to elaborate on some STICKY STUFF when it comes to goals.

I have witnessed people make BOLD goals at the beginning of this year and seen the MAJORITY of them “fall off” or “give up” on them within the first several months of the new year. So I asked myself a very basic question, WHY do most people QUIT or FAIL when it comes to achieving their goals?

After a few months of pondering this question, I saw the answer appear in my own life. I set a goal to accomplish something I NEVER did before and really had no idea what I was doing. One thing I DID have was the faith that this goal would manifest in my life…SOMEHOW.

Interestingly enough, I set a VERY specific time frame for this project and stuck to that time frame. I wanted to accomplish the goal by September of this year, it was mid-February at the time. A ton of trials and tribulations occurred in the MEAT of my process of achieving this goal, but I kept hacking away.

I simply kept my focus and faith on HIGH GEAR and just KNEW it would come to pass. Did I have doubts? YES! Did I think I was a bit out of my mind (CRAZY)? YES! Did things appear to be falling apart right before my eyes? YES! Were there OTHER people doubting me and telling me it wouldn’t happen? YES!

I simply STUCK to my goal no matter what was going on around me. I never wavered the dream nor compromised the vision. I knew if I would just STICK to what the goal was, it WOULD happen. And guess what??? IT DID! I met the goal and accomplished the dream!

So what was the secret? I simply STUCK with my goal. No matter what was going on with the process, I BELIEVED in the dream. Things got a little sketchy at times, but I held my ground and the reality was, I accomplished the goal on the VERY LAST day of September! That’s right, I met the goal I set back in February. It has become a reality all because I STUCK with it.

So many people simply BAIL on their goals and dreams and wonder WHY their life has not manifested into the DREAM they envisioned. Simply sticking with what you set out to do, will get you MILES further than ALWAYS quitting or using excuses as to why it CANNOT happen. Stick to your guns and make it happen! ANYTHING is possible and DREAMS DO COME TRUE!
