Your Net Worth Grows with Your Self-Worth

February 24, 2021

The journey to creating success and happiness in your life has nothing to do with what’s outside of you. It has everything to do with who you are, how much you accept yourself, how much you love yourself, and how much you appreciate yourself. Success and happiness are very much an inside-out job. Focus on your self-worth — accept, love, respect, and appreciate yourself — and your net worth will grow. For more, check out this video or read the full transcript below. Focus First on Your Self-Worth I’m coming up on five years of transition in my life. In […]

Blood or Sweat?

February 17, 2021

There was a phrase that we used regularly in the Marine Corps to justify all the pain and the suffering and torment that we inflicted upon ourselves to prepare for combat. It’s better to lose a gallon of sweat in peacetime than it is a pint of blood in wartime. The adage we adhered to is when we needed to be, it was better to be prepared, than to become prepared at that moment. This takes a growth mindset, where you are always stretching yourself and making yourself uncomfortable not to avoid pain, but create discomfort so you could grow […]

Creating Powerful Outcomes

February 10, 2021

I started my coaching business in 2017 by myself, with no support, and I almost hit double six figures in my first full year in business. I attribute this to a few things, but here’s what I attribute it to most… I understood how to make adjustments rapidly and keep going. I was determined to succeed. I would not be stopped. The Marine in me wouldn’t quit. For more, watch this video, or read the full video transcript below.   Honor the Process. Don’t Stop at the Outcomes. When I’m out running, I spend a lot of time thinking and […]

Know Thyself

February 3, 2021

When you have to hustle and grind for something, you’re really inviting, embracing, and loving struggle and stress and pain. The hard way. You are actually embracing the path of most resistance. Watch this video, or read the full video transcript below, for more.   Stop Hustling and Grinding I cringe every time I see or hear a human being encourage another human being to hustle or grind to achieve an outcome. My wife Angie calls these people “grind gurus” and “hustle whores.” What these people are actually teaching you is to fight life, fight nature and fight yourself. Maybe […]

You’ll see that the universe – life – starts to provide based on your dreams, not your fear. Watch this video, or read the transcript below, for more.

Be A Rebel

January 20, 2021

  Just Be You The greatest act of rebellion that a single human being can possibly demonstrate in this lifetime is to fully be yourself.  Fully embrace your authenticity, talents, gifts, and desires to fully impact the world in your special, unique way. The educational, political, and economic systems were all set up so you become just like everyone else. From the time that we were little kids, we were put on a cookie press, and we were pressed into the exact same figurine over and over and over.  We were taught to think, be, and behave like everyone else. […]

Go With the Flow of Your Emotions

January 6, 2021

True courage is the willingness to feel every emotion. Consider this emotional courage — the only true courage. I misunderstood this for a long time.  Courage isn’t the absence of emotion, as I was taught as a little boy, a Marine, and an adult man. The absence of emotion, or refusing to feel emotion, is pure hell and isolation. This is fear of feeling, not courage. Yesterday, I woke up feeling powerful. Optimism flooded my body and mind, and my whole life was going to positively change in an instant according to my body and mind. This morning I woke up […]

The World Will Show You What You Believe

December 29, 2020

Up until recently, I held this painful belief that I was alone in the world, I couldn’t depend on anyone, I had to do it all on my own. It was a very painful place to be. When you hold that type of belief, you look for evidence in the world, and you’ll find it. The world will show you whatever you believe. Even when it’s a painful belief. When you hold a painful belief and then you see evidence of the contrary, those two will collide. And oftentimes, we value the painful belief over the positive one, and at […]
