Appreciation

This week we would like everyone to focus solely on appreciation. When beginning to soar towards our dream, we can get caught up on what’s next! Meaning when we complete a challenging project or participate/host an event to showcase something new, the next day we tend to immediately put our successes in the past and place our vision on our next biggest accomplishment. As this consistency is always good for business purposes, it may not be so healthy for personal purposes. While watching a interview of J-Cole, he talk’s about how love is the balance for everything in life and we should appreciate it to the fullest. Appreciating family time, ourselves, checkpoints, relationships, connections…etc. All of those important moments will keep you healthy and keep everyone on a common ground.

Whether your creating something new for yourself or your customer’s, its always great to see that you put a smile on someone’s face. Appreciation elevates a new energy into your soul. Once you sit back and realize how far you’ve come and how your skillset/mindset has improved, it only pushes you to another level with satisfaction to overcome all challenges. So remember to archive those important memories to remind you that your destined to be great.  


Learning & Teaching

“Your never to old to learn and never be to young to teach.” - Les Brown

This week we are focused on never being to old to learn and never being to young to teach. As we grow, sometimes we feel stagnant while others are moving forward which can cause discouragement, anxiety and depression. But little do we know, we all have our own timezone, metaphorically speaking. To go more in depth, if you’ve just found your passion no matter what age you are at this moment, understand that your time is now and you are completely on track. If your an adult, that doesn’t mean the younger individuals are faster than you and if your young don’t believe the older people have more of an advantage than you. Learning is a forever tool, so don’t get fooled by thinking one person has all the answers. 

Everyone will become a teacher someday. Whether its teaching your kid’s rules or mentoring your peers towards the right path to success. However, in order to teach appropriately we must gather the proper information to feed the mind’s and have it live there forever. These two fundamental tools are our most powerful assets that should be used very carefully and everyday. Take care.  


Hate vs. Love

“We have to do the things we hate to reach the things we love.’ - Grant Cardone  

This week, we would like everyone to focus on getting through the things we hate to reach the things we desire. This doesn’t just boil down to getting through your 9-5 job while working even harder on your side business, it’s much more deeper than that. It has several meaning’s; getting past the bullshit life throws at you and stop all the complaining, outgrow the space that your currently in, discover the peers you want to grow with vs the ones you will outgrow, and allow yourself to put in the 10k+ hours to receive the knowledge and skillset you need to become successful. These tactics will put you in a driven mindset to conquer everything your going after while fate unfolds. 

Well touch on the two important factors. To begin, complaining is only leaving you stagnant. So before you waste all your breath and time you’ll never get back, deeply think for minute…shall I move forward and live with the result or get angry and play the blame game? Lastly, we MUST isolate ourselves from our friends, family, and peers to put in the hours of learning in order for us to TEACH. Really let that sink in, because when you teach, your giving and when you give, you receive so much more.  


Gatekeeper

“There are no gatekeepers anymore. The only gatekeeper is for you to get my attention.” - Tom Bilyeu 

This week we are focusing on the term ‘gatekeeper’ and to highlight, this word means ‘a person or thing that controls access to something.’ Now when watching an interview by Tom Bilyeu, he powerfully states, “There are no gatekeepers anymore. The only gatekeeper is for you to get my attention.” This sentence resonates profoundly because a lot of individuals don’t commit to their dream or take calculated risk due to believing that, (A.) They can’t live up to the circumstances or (B.) They think that nobody will see their vision. The only person that is stopping you from doing anything in life is yourself. 

 We are our own gatekeepers…if we allow it. To gain people’s attention, we have to show our talents through social media, events, or gatherings. No one man/woman can stop us. Only the misuse of the mind can set us back because that is the most powerful tool in humanity. We live in a society where gatekeepers are scarce. There are many platforms that give us a voice, it’s up to you how you will use them.  


Crowd vs. Authenticity

“A crowd doesn’t mean you have a committed core.” - Pastor John Gray

These days individuals would prefer to have a crowd immediately by taking shortcuts, rather than proceeding towards the long route of building a solid foundation of followers willing to support both you and your business. Just because you have a crowd surrounding you doesn’t mean they’re willing to invest in your vision. While overhearing John gray being interviewed by Lewis Howes, he states, “A crowd doesn’t mean you have a committed core. You can draw crowds with prizes and things but if you want something that’s’healthy and organic then let it grow naturally,” Your crowd will be there for you when the sun is out but not when it rains: Your devoted clients, friends, team and family will support you when you need it most and that is when your peers are most important. 

Always remember to be authentic towards your craft and peers by bringing quality and craftsmanship to the table. Plan to be in your field for eternity and create a solid atmosphere of loyalty to all your customers. By setting this strategy early within your business, there’s no stopping your progress and you will forever have a strong clientele pushing your empire forward.
