Sounds like a dream life, doesn’t it? Well it is…but it is also possible…
My friend was able to attain his bachelors degree, purchase a Porsche, and take multiple vacations within ONE YEAR! Do I have your attention? Even just a little bit? If you want to hear a snippet of his story, check out Episode 6 of the Rotated Views Podcast RIGHT HERE. I do not want to make my friends story sound like an overnight success. There were YEARS put into attaining his dreams and you can learn more about them in the podcast.
You will hear the MAIN TOPIC, Never Give Up, throughout the episode and our perspectives on it, but I wanted to give a little more insight and shed some light on the most OVERLOOKED (in my opinion) topic.
If you ask me, “never giving up” is a mentality. There are certain factors that contribute to this mindset and WILL deliver the goods if applied properly.
Have you ever given up on something AND regret your decision?
I say forget it and move on. Placing regret on the matter will NOT improve it or move you any closer to fixing the problem. Plus, I am a FIRM believer in that things happen for a reason. The key here is to learn the lesson and use the new knowledge when applicable; that is the TRUE essence of never giving up!
The secret is to tap into your WHY. Whenever you feel like quitting, my recommendation is that you REMEMBER WHY YOU STARTED. If you can create a method that will constantly remind you of your WHY, quitting something will become EXTREMELY difficult.
You have to be able to answer this question at the crossroads of quitting…
what will be worse, the pain of continuing the pursuit and eventually reach you goals or the pain of giving up and NEVER achieving your dreams?
Regardless of how tired you are, KEEP AT IT! Keep pushing towards your goals EVERY single day. Never cave in. Fight through the pain. Never give up!

To Your Massive Success,
P.S. For some clarification, there ARE some things you must give up, but this varies by situation and I recommend a consultant, mentor or life coach for such delicate matters.
There is a VERY important message that I feel is NEEDED at this moment and I will address it here as best as I can. It is an interesting “concept” that I believe to be a “reality” that can really boost your life into TRUE PURPOSE. It is amazing to me that MOST people either forget or simply DO NOT comprehend their own power and allow life to be lived in the cesspool of mediocrity.
I want you to stick both arms out in front of your body (zombie position). Bending at the elbows, bring your hands straight back to your head, as if you were about to perform a sit-up. With the tips of your index fingers, tap the side of your head (temple area). If you were to measure the distance between your two index fingers, it would be approximately 6 inches. And it is these 6 inches that determine everything.
Remember, you are always 6 inches away from your goal. Repeat this exercise when you need that little reminder. No matter how BIG your goal, you ca attain it by working it through your mind. We give up on things more because of mental fatigue than anything else. Sure there are a few exceptions, but the overall reason for not achieving your dreams is because you cannot withstand the journey; the hurdles beat you up mentally.
Without trying to oversimplify the subject, just know that the ONLY thing separating the successful from the unsuccessful truly is 6 inches. In fact, it is these 6 measly inches that separate EVERYONE. Take control of your mind and life will unfold itself to your demands. I believe in you and pray you get hold of your brain enough to live the life of your dreams!
To Your MASSIVE Success,
I get asked all the time for “the best success tip” I can give someone who is looking to turn things around. Although the detailed answer is truly different “case-by-case”, there is a little secret that will FORCE success.
I have to admit, there is a tricky part to this secret…
Consistency (the secret) can go either way, and it’s your job to control it. You can be consistently lazy. You can be the ultimate procrastinator and never really get anything accomplished due to you consistent non-efforts.
This is what REALLY separates the “go getter” from the “excuse-maker”; the activities you CHOOSE to consistently pursue. I know grown men who literally play video games or watch television consistently 2-3 hours a day that tell me they do not have time to for a part-time job or time to work on their personal development. On the other hand, I know grown men who are “successful” and cannot find enough time in the day to attend to ALL their business matters.
To me, it is a CLEAR choice and that choice is CHOOSING the actions/habits you do on a consistent basis. If you make excuses and CHOOSE to play video games over personal development activities, there is a clear distinction and reason for your outcome. To put it VERY simple, the habits (activities) you choose to execute on a daily (consistent) basis will determine your results (outcome) in life.
If you are NOT happy with what life currently looks like, stop and take notice to the activities you do on a consistent basis. There is a book titled “Rich Habits” by Thomas Corley and it dissects the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people through their daily habits. There is a MAJOR difference in habits and this book breaks each down in great detail; I highly recommend this book to ANYONE wanting to change their habits to those of the ELITE.
Once you have the RIGHT habits down and execute them on a consistent basis, you will FORCE success to come upon you. It is a matter of cause and effect. I suggest you take the time to analyze your daily habits and determine which ones are NOT yielding your desired outcome. Once you have selected these “bad habits”, replace them with “good habits” and implement them on a CONSISTENT basis. Each month you should take the time to reflect on your results and determine which activities need adjustments and which need to be replaced altogether.
These little changes done on a consistent basis will eventually FORCE success and you WILL become a part of the elite. If you need additional help with selecting better habits, email/contact me for a more ideas; I would be more than happy to help.
Let me know how consistency affect your life and what OTHER element you credit your success to.
To Your Massive Success,
I have read a TON of books in the personal development arena and learned A LOT of interesting things along the way. There was mostly some overlapping material with sparks of NEW ideas and tips that I truly benefited from. However, there was a secret that had been sewn into each book that could be overlooked very easily.
I want to talk about a MISSION we are all on (whether we realize it or not). I am currently reading a book titled, “Hero”, by Rhonda Byrne. This book explains the EXACT mission I want to talk about today; the hero journey.
We are ALL here for a reason and our mission is to fully realize this through our experience. There is a “hero” buried inside each one of us and it is our DUTY to pull the greatness out from the depths of our souls. We all have skills and abilities inside of us that were installed in us at birth. The trick is to tap into these attributes and sharpen them up through our journey; this is living life to its full potential.
The fun thing about the “hero journey” is that it completely diminishes the competition. There is NO COMPETITION in the “hero journey” except for yourself. YOU are the biggest challenge you must overcome to attain success throughout the process. This is great news because we can then cheer on everyone else during their journey in complete understanding we are ALL going through challenges at different levels.
If you see someone you know going through a rough patch, its best to simply show compassion. They really do not need your criticism (unless asked for); it’s unnecessary and not helpful. The point of the “hero journey” is progression. We are in this thing together and helping others progress forward on their mission is the ultimate gift. Show love and give a helping hand when a fellow hero is struggling; the deed will NOT go unnoticed.
One of the BEST ways of helping in the progression, is to view each person as a HERO. Imagine everyone was the Superman or Cat Woman in their own life, because they are! how much more differently would you look at the people around you if you viewed them as HERO’S? My prediction is that we would be living in a totally different world.
The MOST important task for each “hero” is to become the BEST version of themselves. If you haven’t been the best “hero” you can be thus far, it’s NEVER to late to change. To save the world…your world…simply takes a decision to WANT to CHANGE. Dig deep and discover the HERO inside of you and join the rest of us “hero’s” on our journey!
YOU ARE A HERO!
To Your massive Success,
I read regularly and in my opinion, reading has been MY “slight edge”. It gives me insights and knowledge I was never before aware of. I read materials I am fascinated with and actually find delight in. I know most people cringe at the notion of reading, but I believe it’s mostly because they were FORCED to read subject matter they had NO interest in.
To keep me continuously passionate about reading, I found authors who have a writing style I can relate to. Lets be honest, some “personal development” books read like textbooks and that’s just not appealing to me; it’s boring. If you are having a tough time finding reading fun, I recommend you start off with magazines of your choosing. Read a few articles that appeal to you. If you like what you read, do some research on the author and seek out more of their publications.
My intention was not to make this about reading, but I feel so strongly about the importance of reading, I felt obliged to share. Anyway, I was reading one of my favorite authors Rhonda Byrne and her book, “The Magic” when SHE HIT ME with an absolutely fascinating question.
The topic was on making all your wishes come true and she was specifically talking about visualizing your success. And in this chapter, she gives the reader visualization exercises. One of the exerises was to ask yourself specific questions and answer them to generate the FEELING of your success.
I hope that was not too confusing.
So then SHE HIT ME with the question,
“What emotions did you feel when you received your desire?” (The Magic, pg. 127)
Now that may seem like a basic question at first glance, but its power can be the difference between success and failure! Yes, I feel that strongly about this simple question. You have to have a burning desire to attain whatever it is you want in life. To get a “burning desire”, you have to have STRONG FEELINGS towards that desire.
Some people cannot even picture themselves getting through the day, let alone achieving a childhood dream. BUT…for those of us who believe, this simple practice of FEELING, can change EVERYTHING for you! I know it’s hard to “feel success” if you are suffering or currently facing difficulties, but you HAVE to build on your faith and truly BELIEVE in yourself.
Belief is KEY to FEELING you can achieve your goal. This simple exercise in asking yourself how you FEEL when you visualize yourself achieving your goal is quite literally THE SECRET to getting whatever you want in life. I am not going to get into the specifics or why I feel so strongly about it, just know that it WORKS!
GO out there and read up on this stuff. I promise you, the information will blow your mind away. It will lead you to the conclusion that ALL this time, you actually have been closer to achieving your goals than you thought. Again, I do not want this to be about quantum physics or the law of attraction, but this stuff works and I am DARING you to give it a try; plus, there are experts out there who can explain this stuff much more eloquently than I can.
With this being my first post of 2016, I want to thank you and welcome you! I appreciate you more than you know! Lets make 2016 our most prosperous (in health, wealth, relationships, knowledge, spirituality) year yet!
To Your Massive Success,
I have been on my personal development journey since 2006 and there is ONE thing I want to share with you that LITERALLY CHANGED EVERYTHING for me! Once you get this ONE THING, you will be an unstoppable force. Once you get a hold of this, it’s almost like you HACKED LIFE itself!
When you first start setting goals or trying to change things around in general, you are faced with MANY questions. I know for me, self-doubt annihilated more dreams than ANYTHING else! It was extremely hard for me to envision success without knowing exactly how I was going to achieve it. It was definitely a FRUSTRATING time for me.
If you are currently changing your life for the better and trying to improve yourself, I want to help you RIGHT NOW! I want you to SKIP months and maybe even years of frustration with this ONE concept!
Here it is:
If ANYTHING is going to change in you life, it’s up to YOU to change it!
I know that may sound a little cliche, but stick with me here. There are some folks out there with the lottery mentality who think that “ONE DAY” money or success is just going to fall into their lap. And while that “slight” chance that “might” happen, the odds are so ridiculous, it’s very unlikely.
To top that off, why in the world would you want to place you life in someone else’s hands? Why let someone else determine your destiny when you have COMPLETE CONTROL over it! If YOU want to “turn things around”, you are going to have to do the work yourself! You have the ability and gifts to live the life of your dreams; you just have to put in a little elbow grease.
Understand how powerful you are! Nothing is impossible and in order for things to become “possible”, you are going to have to get a grip on things. Stop waiting around for some “miracle” to happen and get on with it. The problem with “miracles” is that the majority of people have completely misunderstood the definition. It has been overused and abused over centuries so much that it has evolved into an “impossibility” (not even sure if that’s a word).
Here’s the thing, we are surrounded my miracles every day, we just don’t recognize them or appreciate their value. We messed up the definition somewhere along the way and are now overlooking HUGE opportunities to capitalize on EVERYDAY!
Professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek coined the phrase, “create your own luck”. This goes back to my original point, that if anything is going to change, it’s up to YOU to change it. STOP WAITING AROUND when the power of CHANGE is in your hands! Take responsibility in life, grab hold of some ambition buried deep down inside of you, and MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!
Guys, I promise you, when you REALLY understand this concept…THE WORLD IS YOURS! Think deeply about this and really soak it in. This is a REALITY that changed EVERYTHING for me, once I understood its power!
I hope this helps! Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below. Also, if there is ANYTHING else I can do to help..PLEASE do not hesitate to let me know. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lastly, I want to take the time to announce that my book, The Motivation Files will be released this December! The book is going to elaborate on the topics mentioned in the album for a unique combination; simply stated, the book will compliment the album.
Thanks again for stopping by!!!

“Motivating You To Become The BEST Version of Yourself”
Here is a video of me explaining how I turned my BIGGEST weakness into one of my GREATEST assets. It is a true story that I hope can inspire someone to keep pushing for their dreams to manifest.
I am super curious to hear your story and what your biggest weaknesses are. please feel free to share!
To Your Massive Success,
PS. Keep on the look out for “teasers” of The Motivation Files coming around soon! The project WILL be released this Fall and you will be one of the FIRST to be informed, so STAY TUNED! This is going to be EXCITING!!!
Are you into getting surprised? I am not much of a fan, but I will say, sometimes surprises have delighted me. Over the past 9 years, I have noticed something very interesting in attaining my goals. Something that I thought would be beneficial for you, if I shared.
When I was introduced to the Personal Development Industry back in 2006, I was hammered with all kinds of methods on goal setting and living the life of your dreams. They showed me how to put a dream board together and even go out “Dream building”. I was absolutely captivated by this new material.
It was exciting to know I could craft my life. But was fascinated me MOST, was that I could have BIG DREAMS and not feel weird about it. My parents always encouraged us to go after whatever it was we wanted in life. They created an atmosphere of being optimistic about the future. So when I was introduced to the personal development arena, DREAMING was the first thing that got my attention.
Fast-forward 9 years later and I have accomplished SO MANY of my goals/dreams it actually blows my mind! The funny thing about MOST of them is that they didn’t pan out EXACTLY how I had imagined! In fact, the majority of my dreams manifested even BETTER than I ever even thought they would!
A huge proponent to this is the persistent and consistent methods of dreaming I was doing. Some dreams took longer to unfold than others, but I still stuck with it and that is the message I wanted to share with you!
IF you simply just KEEP doing this, life will surprise you! KEEP DREAMING! No matter how things panned out for you in the past, you have to stick with your goals. I noticed that if I kept dreaming about accomplishing my goals, they eventually manifested in my life. Obviously, there was A LOT of action that took place, on my end, but I was persistent and consistent in the pursuit.
Throughout time, my dreams developed and changed into bigger and better ones. If they didn’t manifest in the time frame I thought they would, i just adjusted the goal and kept on dreaming! I believed in my dreams and STILL believe in my dreams, which is why I have accomplished so many of them.
It’s important we have BIG DREAMS that we actually believe in. This belief is the component that trigger’s manifestation.
If you simply stick with your DREAMS, life WILL surprise you…and I am sure you will be just as delighted as I was! Just stay with it and DREAM BIG!
I hope you found this helpful!
To YOUR Massive Success,
Ps. The Motivation Files (Album) will be released this FALL 2015. This project WILL help you to become the BEST version of yourself! Stay tuned!
How many competitions have you entered in your life? Is there just ONE that stands out? Did you WIN anything or placed in the event?
It’s in our nature to be competitive, but about making “placements” in our life as a whole? Huh? I know this may sound a bit confusing, but stick with me here. We all have priorities no matter what our age is. We categorize them and then act on them accordingly.
Some of these priorities have TOP placement in our lives, while others tend to ALWAYS be at the bottom of the barrel! Our priorities are influenced by EVERYTHING around us.
I found that if I am around a group of ambitious entrepreneur’s I too will be very ambitious. If I am around a group of complainers, then I find myself complaining about stuff. It’s the way things work…you are who you hang around.
In my family, we place our Family’s needs above EVERYTHING! We go above and beyond to help each other out. It’s almost like it’s in our DNA.
Recently, my wife and I were in a pickle. It was something important that needed to be taken care of immediately. After a discussion, we then turned to friends and family about it. The reaction was AMAZING! our family responded with ease and quickness!
Our problem was solved and taken care of by FAMILY members of ALL sorts! It wasn’t just ONE group of Family member’s, it was several different ones with different backgrounds that came together and SOLVED our problem.
I couldn’t be more thankful for the LOVE and SUPPORT we have in our family members. This situation right here is the EXACT reason why we place FAMILY FIRST!!!
That’s right, Family took FIRST PLACE!
It’s a give and take kind of thing that I don’t think ANYONE can explain. We do NOT take it for granted and are overwhelmingly grateful to be a part of such a loving network of people.
I was just curious if there is ANYONE else out there who feels the same way or has ANOTHER priority (aside from God) first?
Let me know if you share a similar experience and if you too place FAMILY FIRST!
To Your Massive Success,
This sounds like an OVER-THE-TOP promise at first glance, but it really is the simple truth. So often we cloud our minds with doubtful thoughts that prevent us from living the life of our dreams.
Think about that for a second…
We are the obstacle that is holding up our dream life! We get in our OWN way and talk ourselves out of things we didn’t even TRY! How crazy does this even sound!!! So many times I hear people say they want to live some extravagant lifestyle and get out of their job, but make NO effort to do anything about it!
Well, because they simply talk themselves RIGHT out of the very thing they want to do! Their belief in themselves is so LITTLE, they live an AVERAGE life dunked in mediocrity! How sad.
I want to tell you that you are a LIMITLESS being and your potential is infinite! ALL of the barriers you THINK you may have are virtually MADE UP in your own mind!
Think about ALL the things you talked yourself out of….
It will either get you angry or keep you tamed. listen, if living the life of your dreams was easy, EVERYONE would be doing it. The truth is, we have to EARN it. Most of the “earning” takes place in the mind.
For you to get over this MAJOR BARRIER you must FOLLOW YOUR HEART! I promise you will live a life without regrets! If you truly believed in your dreams, the mental game wouldn’t even be a problem.
Tap into what your true desires are in life. Make sure they REALLY tug at your heart. You can then clear your mind of doubt because you know DEEP DOWN, that this IS your calling!
Where there is a WILL there is a WAY! We are our BIGGEST barrier’s. If you can overcome this “battle of the mind”, THE WORLD IS YOURS!
So get up and FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
Listen to what it is saying to you! This is your GPS system that will guide you to your ultimate destination. You OWE it to yourself to fulfill your calling here on earth! It’s YOUR duty!
I hope these words encourage you to take action on your feelings and go after your dreams because DREAMS COME TRUE!
Let me know your progress or if you need help following your heart…I am more than willing to help you out! Simply shoot me an email or leave a comment below! Thanks for stopping by and reading, I really appreciate you!
