Hello? 

Are you Listening?

Yes, you.... the one reading this post.

I think we need to talk.

I hear that you are not going as big as you should be and that you are frustrated your not already there.

I hear that you get all fired up that you will go big as hell then life happens. Things get in the way, and then everything just goes to hell in a handbasket.

Guess what, you are not alone. I mean it.

Most people struggle with this. How do I know? Look around. 

What do you see?

A bunch of people walking through life on autopilot. They look lost, confused, and stuck.

But not you. Know how I know? I see you.

I see you dreaming, wishing and hoping. 

I see you looking for more and fighting to go for it.

That's a solid start. Now you have run.

RUN! 

Run like your tail is on fire. Through a log on your internal flame and go for it.

Not sure how? Need a little help? 

It's OK I got you. How about we jump on a call for an hour and we see if we can figure out what you need to run towards?

GO ahead you can schedule it here. Schedule a Call

Know where you want to run to but a little unsure what steps to take. I got you. Lets set up that call. Schedule a Call

Already running and need a kick in the ass. Ya, I got you too. Schedule a Call

RUN LIKE HELL!

Are You All In?

Are You All In?

You know you want more. You envision yourself being more. Why not go big as hell and see what happens?

If You Have A Dream Go After It.

Chase After Your Dream

Chase After Your Dream

Since an early age, I have wanted to speak in front of audiences and bring real value. Inspiring people to take action in their own lives. I loved watching others do it and I always enjoyed watching the light in someone's eyes when something resonated with them. 

The only problem I had with doing this was I thought I couldn't make money doing it and it didn't seem like a real job. That one word held me back for way too many years.

Oh, what word? Job! J.O.B or Just Over Broke.

I grew up with the belief you had to have a job. You had to go work for someone else earn a days pay and rinse wash repeat. It didn't occur to me that I could do something on my own. The thought really never crossed my mind. The word entrepreneur never had a definition I understood and no one around me was doing it. 

Like most people, I went from job to job living a mundane life. It was depressing and gloomy. Don 't get me wrong I have had some great life experiences and done some cool stuff. But most of my life was spent living someone else's dream. Almost like living someone else's life. 

Now that I am chasing my own dream the only regret I have is why didn't I do this sooner. Why didn't investigate my dream earlier? Now I am charging after a 22-year-old dream and just getting started. My patience is crap and I want everything now. Imagine if I had 22 years of already running under my belt. 

Some of us are late bloomers I get that. If you are reading this don't do what I did wait until you are 40 to chase a dream. Do what I did at 40 but do it now whatever age you are. Chase after your dream and go for it. The earlier you start the more you can compound success for the future. If you are like me and have always wanted to chase your dream but now you're older then start. Don't wait any longer, without starting you can't begin the compounding process and you will never see what you are made of.

Chase after your dreams and Run Like Hell. Look at the world and say hold my beer and watch this shit. 

Anytime Life Gets Hard It Means You Leveled Up.

LevelUp.jpg

Anytime life get hard it means you have leveled up. This statement has been like a warm blanket on a cold day for me. Getting my coaching business going has been successful and trying. Like playing a game where and you just beat a boss and now you have started a new stage. You have all your skills, weapons, and knowledge you are now just taking on bigger bad guys, beasts, and uncovering new areas.

I have leveled up a few times in my life. Promotions in the Marine Corps, promotions in jobs and career changes. Every time I have moved there has been a steep learning curve. I took on jobs that were bigger than I thought I was and every time I figured it out. It wasn’t easy but we all know the saying if it was easy everyone would do it.

I think this is why people stay doing the things they hate. They don’t believe they could handle it if they were to level up. The truth is they can, they are just afraid of whom they will become along the way.

I look at it this way. Each time you level up you know you have bigger more badass weapons coming your way. Stuff that you haven’t even thought of and each level has unique tools to take on its challenges. That stuff excites the hell out of me. It helps me understand that shit is going to get tough. Odds are I am going to get my teeth kicked in a few times. At the end of the day, it’s about the grind of the level and learning to play with your new skillsets.

Your leveling up. Remember at the start of the level shit is tough you have to figure the right lanes and the new equipment. The equipment doesn’t appear you have to break shit and blow some shit up to make it happen. You may even have to start over a few times. Either way, you have to keep moving forward towards the next boss and learn how to kick his ass. Sometimes the right teammates can give you tips to get better at the level this is why we have coaches, masterminds, and mentors.

Go through life trying to hit the max level in your game. Become the #1 in the world of being you. I think you will be surprised how badass you are and what you can accomplish.

How Logic Destroys Passion

Logic Destroys Passion

Logic Destroys Passion

I sat across from a gentleman today who is an awesome guy. He is caring and genuine, and he connects with people. He has been in the real estate game for a couple of years, and he sat down with me to see if I could help him grow his business.

His story was like so many others. There is not enough business coming in to justify the cost going out. Better said he needed to sell more houses. We talked about his business and figured out he didn’t have a sales problem he has a logic problem.

What I mean by logic (which is something I love) his problem was he thought a lot and did a little. Thinking, he needed more business but not taking enough action is putting him out of business.

He was running his real estate business like a part-time job. Half-assing it in hopes that it would grow by osmosis. Now truth be told he didn’t see himself as half-assing it, he thought he was working. But as we dove into it, it was pretty telling he wasn’t giving his all.

The little things he should be doing he wasn’t. They were impacting his business significantly. He has a great contact list of friends, but only 50% know what he does. He has gone to events and met people and never followed up. His social game was lacking he has a great base but not interaction. He wasn’t taking risks and was playing it safe. All of these things he acknowledged when we spoke.

Here is how we discovered it. I asked him to become his own sales manager and ask himself what would his sales manager tell him to do. His response. “Get off your ass and get out there.”

When you don’t look at our job as a business, then you only think you are working.

His thoughts were that he was intruding on people asking them out for a cup of coffee. His thoughts were that he would be seen as a sales guy if he got out there. But what we found is he has a real passion for people and has a very cool niche of people in which he can connect.

His self prescribe prescription was to do more and hold himself accountable for going big and loud. He walked away from our conversation with a mission and a gameplan and a new sense of badassery.

So let me help you out. You are a badass. Stop thinking and start doing. Action drives your attitude and courage creates confidence. If you take action, then motivation will step in and take care of the rest.

You got this, and I am excited to see how far you.

3 Ways to Play Offense in Life — Instead of Defaulting to Defense.

Play Offense in Life vs. Defense

Play Offense in Life vs. Defense

One of the things I am learning in my business of coaching badasses is how to play offense. Changing my thought process of playing to win instead of playing not to lose. As an employee in my career, I always had the mindset of how to keep my money vs. how do I get the money.

Playing on offense is not a natural tactic for many people. Primarily if you were brought up in a household, that thrived in the paycheck to paycheck mentality. In our house it was always we will find a way vs. let’s create a method and never have to do this again. We played defense robbing Peter to pay Paul. Paying this bill waiting to hold off the collection calls until the next payday.

How do you play offense, when your entire life had, a defensive mindset. Here are three things that have worked for me.

First get a routine. A routine you do every day that is non-negotiable. Write articles, get on social media (post not read) and get out and meet people. I am still working on how to finish the day right so if you have suggestions for that I would love to hear them

2nd change your circle. Look at the people you hang out with and see if they are the growing as fast as you are. Are they inspiring you to kick more ass? Do you talk about money, investing, creating new companies? Are you discussing the latest trends and where the economy is going? If your circle is not pushing you, then it is hard to play offense, so you default to defense.

3rd get journaling. I am serious get a daily journal going that helps you step up your day and sets you up for an offensive strategy. Ask the question daily how can I play offense today? How do I go big and loud? Need help Journaling check out my free eBook “That’s not How you Journal Jackass.

The best offense beats the best defense every time. Mainly due to the fact of different mindsets. Stop worrying about how do you stop the bleeding in your income. Start thinking about creating a river of revenue.

Instead of how do I pay my bills. Think how can I produce more cash. What can I sell, how do I make this into a revenue stream?

Start playing offense like your in the final game of your career. We are all are playing the only game we get, and if you go on offense, then you got a real shot at winning this thing.

What are you Listening Too?

Feed Your Mind

Feed Your Mind

Throughout my life, I have had a lot of windshield time. Driving to appointments, going on vacations or running errands. Most of the time I am feeding my mind with knowledge. It could be listening to a Youtube video, an audio book or having an enlightening conversation on the phone. What I find for me is that I get to choose what to listen too. Which sometimes means it is my thoughts that keep me company.

With this windshield time, the badasses of the day influence me. They inspired me to keep pushing farther and harder. They ride with me during the good days and the tough days and make every day easier. I talk all the time about feeding your mind, and the rest will follow, and this is precisely what I am talking about.

Life is a series stories we live then tell or teach later. What makes them spectacular is how we lived them the first time.

If you want to make sure your feeding you mind then change what you listen too. You might discover your destiny along the way and chase after your dreams.

How Do You Kick Ass Today

Fight.jpg

This question is what I asked a client yesterday that runs a video production company where he specializes is nature documentaries. He was struggling with going to a 3-day conference where most of the attendees would be his ideal customer. He wrestled with the idea because he was thinking too small. Instead of feeling like a badass he was thinking about survival.

In this day in age, you cannot have a survival mindset; you must be the aggressor and go after life. Play offensively and not defensively. You have to make shit happen and not wait for it to come to you.

I asked him how does he kick ass and go big as hell? He said to go to the conference. Awesome now how do you pay for it? He said I could pay for it now or wait for business to come in then pay for it.

All I said was how do you go big as hell right now? He said pay for it now. How do you find the money after you have spent it to replenish your funds I asked?

We then spent the next 10 minutes brainstorming high vibe, high energy ways to go big. We talked about guerilla tactics like going to his favorite restaurant and creating a quick documentary about the restaurant. Grabbing the manager or owner telling them you are filming a documentary and get them on film. Edit the crap out the video posting it to Facebook and tagging everyone in the video.

We talked about going to events where his key target clients are and taking his camera. Then walk up to his target ask for an interview and turn it into a blog and vlog post tagging that individual and anyone else he met at the event.

To kick ass today, you have to stop thinking small. Think about the most audacious crazy thing you can do to go big as hell and get seen. Being a badass is about not giving a damn what other people think and doing the things that scare you.

You got this I have faith in you. I see that inner badass trying to come out. Rip off the duct tape wrapped around your spirit and Run Like Hell.
