10 secrets(not really) for law of attraction!
Read that again… making a big life change is scary, but regret is even scarier!
I was tired of making excuses, and I was tired of living and feeling the way I was!
I made a decision to change it, and committed to it, and the rest took care of itself!
It wasn’t easy, by any means! It’s a lot of hard work, persistence, discipline, and dedication, but I’d rather it be hard bettering myself than hard not bettering myself, because both are equally hard… CHOOSE YOUR HARD!
I choose to not live with regret, and make choices that will help move me forward in my life, career, and health!
Trust yourself! Even if things collapse around you, you will be the determining factor of how things end up for you. Don’t let the environment affect you, you have to affect your environment!
“There was a farmer who grew excellent quality corn. Every year he won the award for the best grown corn. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbours. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked.
“Why sir,” said the farmer, “Didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours grow good corn.”
So is with our lives... Those who want to live meaningfully and well must help enrich the lives of others, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all...
-Call it power of collectivity...
-Call it a principle of success...
-Call it a law of life.
The fact is, none of us truly wins, until we all win
There’s no secret sauce to anything in life!
The secret sauce is continuing to move forward when obstacles and challenges are thrown at you, and they will always be thrown at you… especially when you are on the verge of success!
Persistent pursuit of your goals and dreams is the only way you succeed!
You don’t have to be the best, or the smartest, but, if you’re persistent you will succeed!
Most people are not persistent! Don’t be most people! Choose to keep pushing forward no matter what!
How strong is your WHY, and how strong are your goals??? Are they strong enough to persistently pursue them? If not, you may want to rethink your WHY and goals as they’re not big enough!
Remember that time you said you’d do that thing? Yep. That thing.
Oh... and the one before? That other time?
When are you going to keep that promise you made to yourself?
Funny how we are so big on keeping our word to others, but don’t bring the same value when it comes to ourselves.
That resolution we made last year.
That business you said you’d launch.
That 20 pounds you said you’d lose.
That book you said you’d write.
That date night you said you’d carve in stone.
So many men, and women, feel like they lack drive and confidence NOT because they’re incapable... but because they don’t TRUST themselves.
Now don’t shoot the messenger.
But it’s just the way it is.
I felt the exact same way.
Settled for less.
Reduced my goals.
Made every excuse as to why life was the way it was.
That is... until I realized that I had the power to BUILD self confidence instead of excusing myself from stepping up to the plate.
By making promises and keeping them.
To OTHERS... but first to MYSELF.
Once I did...
My TRUST got bigger.
My GOALS increased.
I started to BELIEVE IN myself again.
My business EXPLODED beyond my dreams.
Same can be said for you. The ball is in your court. You’re 100% in the drivers seat.
What BROKEN PROMISE is standing in between the man, or woman , you FEEL YOU ARE and the man, or woman , you want to SHOW UP AS in your world?
You are your thoughts and feelings, so be mindful of them!
Paradigm 🤯Do you need to change yours?
TRUE STORY: Once upon a time, a bunch of people were standing in an airport in the Caribbean and they were upset that a flight had gotten canceled and they were all stuck for hours.
One guy -- who was completely broke -- walked over to a charter desk and asked how much to charter a private plane. They told him.
This guy borrowed a blackboard from someone in the airport and made a sign that said, “$29 FLIGHT TO PUERTO RICO”.
He sold out all the seats on the plane and got his own flight to Puerto Rico for free.
His name was Richard Branson. And that’s how Virgin Air got started.
Things to consider:
1. He didn’t let “I don’t have the money” be an excuse to not do something.
2. He made his money by SOLVING SOMEONE’S PROBLEM. (The best way to make money)
If you were to actually live by those two rules.....Especially in the times and challenges we face today...
what do you think you would do differently toward your goals this week?
The young fish in this story wants to find something amazing called the ocean. He doesn’t know where to find it so he asks for some help from an older and wiser fish. That older fish knows the search. She’s been there.
We all spend a lot of time searching for meaning and purpose in our lives, but usually the thing we are searching for is right in front of us. Reaching a goal won’t make us happy. We can find happiness right where we are today.
Things happen when we DECIDE, not when we just “like” something!
“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
- Tony Robbins
Everyone wants to things to change, but won’t change themselves... hate to break it to you, but changing things starts with changing YOU!
Quit complaining about things! Complaining changes absolutely nothing! Want things to change, change yourself!
Complaining is unattractive and unproductive! Stop! Do something about it!
Constant reminder to myself:
1. Develop your mindset. You don’t get in life what you want, you get in life what you are.
2. Only have quality people around you. You’re who you’re surrounded by.
3. Develop your communication skills. Once you open your mouth, you tell the world who you are.
It’s all about priorities, isn’t it? If something, or someone, is important to you, you will find a way to give your time and effort to them!
This is no different when it comes to your own health... is it important enough for you to make your health a priority?
You can’t be your best self for others, if you aren’t your best self for you!
Make your health a priority, now! You only have one body and one life... it’s best you take care of it!
I’m discovering life is less of a sprint and more like an ultra marathon obstacle race with lots of detours.
How you perceive the race, the obstacles and the detours can directly impact your ability to run the race and win the prize for finishing well.
What is one obstacle that you will demolish today?
When it comes to life we all want things to happen smooth and perfect like the picture on the left. BUT in reality we all have “those days” that nothing seems to go right. What we need to always remember is that pushing through the hard times and keeping moving is most important.
Nothing...I mean NOTHING that is worthwhile was/is easy. Even when others think it was easy they have not seen all the work up to that point.
There are millions of inspirational quotes that fit in here but really...you/ me/ everyone just needs to remember when you miss your target for a moment just get back on track. Keep the goal in front of you and keep working.
Make little goals along the way, that can help you stay focused.
Find someone to be your accountability partner always helps!
Attitude is everything 👊🏻
Get rid of anything and anyone that is a negative drain on you! ✌️
Teach our kids that you are what you eat, and you will reflect it through your physical appearance, mindset, and energy levels.
But first, you must do it! Kids learn from what you do more than what you tell them. Lead by example!
It always starts with YOU!
Nothing changes if YOU don’t change anything... your thoughts, your habits, your decisions, etc!
YOU have to decide and take action, or nothing will change 🤷🏼♂️
Have you ever considered chasing an epic dream? 🤔
It can be like chasing a roaring lion that scares you. 😬
The challenge and risks of chasing a big dream/lion is significant, but so is your life if you catch it and make it your own. 👊🏻
This is Aneeka. She’s one of our black belts. She is one of the best and she knows it. How does she know? Because she practiced, failed, got back up, kicked butt, broke boards, did leadership classes, and ultimately through experiences, she feels it in herself...
Confidence cannot be bought, rushed, lectured, or convinced... it only happens when you physically and mentally go through challenges and over come them. It becomes a part of you when you force yourself to stand back up after you’ve been pushed down.
That’s what Taekwondo does. Gives you that experience and the opportunity to become a true leader. Contrary to the popular belief that leaders are born, they are made...
Let’s be phenomenal!
This pretty much sums it up...
There’s no way to have great attitude if you are always complaining about something and being bitter. I mean don’t get me wrong, I know the struggle is real, and at times it’s really not your fault! Heck, sometimes it’s really someone else’s fault!
But as I always say, sometimes you can choose be right or just let go and be happy...
Man! I wish I bought Amazon Stocks back in 97 when it was $18 per share! (Now is $3240 as of this morning) that means $10k now would be worth $12million.
I hear this a lot. Actually, I said it too! So let me ask you, did you research and buy some stocks that could be the next Amazon?
Man! I should have invested in a property in that city! It really blew up! Well, are your saving and looking into a property that can potentially blow up in the future?
Man! So and so invested in a business that I didn’t think would work but after few years he really is kicking butt! I wish I started a business before! Are you actively looking now for you to have passive income later in 2-3 years for yourself?
Man! I should have really taken better of my health... I really want to look and feel better... Well, are you working on your eating habits and exercising now for the future and taking the necessary steps?
Guys, it’s simple. Very very simple to get started in all of the above but never easy. In famous world of Jim Rohn, why do people know the answer but still not do it even if it’s easy? It’s easier NOT to do it.
I promised myself if I feel that “I should have...” done something before, I’ll just do it now so I don’t feel like that in the future. This has been one of the best decisions I made. Nothing like feeling of regret on “what it could have been...”
See, it’s not just about getting it done, the PROCESS it self will make you feel better because you’re doing something about it! You don’t feel helpless and you create HOPE!
Do it for you and especially for your children. The chances are, they will do what their parents do. They are always watching you!
Teach your children that healthy body starts with food. You can’t fill your body with unhealthy stuff all the time and exercise it off. It just doesn’t work that way. You gotta do both nutrition and exercise! Our kids are being taught calorie in and calorie out! What kind of calorie you take in REALLY matters!
I’m going to tell you something that might sound strange. In fact, it might even offend some of you... but then again, truth has a tendency of doing that.
Here’s what I want you to know:
Your fear isn’t real.
Nope. Not at all.
That thing keeping you from stepping out...
That feeling that keeps you from speaking up...
That thing that makes you STAY STUCK and MISERABLE and MISSING OUT on the life you want to experience...
..that’s FEAR. And it’s NOT REAL.
Fear is made up... and it’s LEARNED.
I say it’s learned because babies are born with only two fears: the fear of falling and loud noises. That’s it.
You weren’t born worried about what others THINK of you. You weren’t born fearing JOB LOSS or FAILURE... RELATIONSHIP LOSS or DEATH.
..you LEARNED how to worry about those things.
Now maybe you’re thinking... “Sure! But those things COULD happen!” Yep. You’re right. But they could just as easily NOT happen, too. Well... I guess death gets a pass here. 😉
I would rather FAIL in my pursuit of my dreams than SUCCEED at aiming for nothing with my life and achieving it.
Your life is too big and you’re too full of potential to allow some supposed fear rob you of what you’re called to.
So answer me this... what do you WANT to do in life, and what FEAR has held you back from doing it?
About your health, your business, your relationships, and anything else you feel negative about. What you say to yourself are the most powerful words! Whatever you say, your brain will agree and go towards that direction.
Your self talk:
“I’ll never get to accomplish my dreams...”
“You’re right, you will NEVER! So give up now”
“I haven’t accomplished my dreams YET”
“You’re right! You haven’t yet, but you can learn to! So let’s find a way!”
Parents! This one is for you~ We are not perfect.... I’m sure we have bunch of stuff we should have or could have done for our kids during COVID but remember that we still did our best and showed lots of love! You did some awesome things so let’s celebrate those also!
We can complain about how great things were or you can make things great now!
Now more than ever!
Parents, because of COVID19 thing have turned worse for donations for kids and foster kids for Christmas 2020...
We are asking parents for help on sponsoring children for Christmas gifts for those who cannot afford them.
Can you imagine your children not having any presents for Christmas on top of what they are going through? It breaks my heart just thinking about it.

We have specific requests from specific children that we will have available.

1 out of 4 children are obese... they are not supposed to be but more and more kids are getting this way. Good that are supposed to be healthy for us and are being advertised as healthy food are In Fact killing them.
Another big reason Kids are obese is that they are more involved on screen time and spends less time outdoors and being active. Time to do the research parents!

Saw this on a friends page and had to share it!
Back in the 90’s Emmitt Smith reached out to Michael Jordan to learn about business from him. Mike said no problem and set a meeting place.
After they met,
Emmitt asked “How come we don’t have meetings like this more often to learn and do business together?”
Mike - “What did you have to do to get this meeting?”
Emmitt - “I had to call you to ask you for the information”
Mike - “Exactly. If you had not done that we would not be sitting down talking about business.”
“You were humble enough to ask, meaning you were willing to learn. I cannot teach someone who is not willing to learn. You have to have a fertile mind before seeds can be planted or you will never learn.”
As the saying goes “When the student is ready the teacher will appear”
