Discover the Power of Your Convicition


We all need to have conviction. This can be hard. Not because we don’t know what it is, but because it is greatly opposed by nearly at every turn.

Sometimes our well meaning friends, family, and associates feel they know what’s best for us. They feel that because they know us, and have shared experiences with us, they feel they have a pretty good idea of what makes us happy. So they kindly suggest and pressure us to do things that they figure will be enjoyable for us.

We take their kind advice, because we can’t quite grasp what we need to do. Rather than just give up on life we do what they suggest, but somewhere down the road, we realize that we’re not living the life we want to be living.

So we have to face the fire of the well meaning, and determine what we truly want. We have to discover our own purpose, and do what truly excites us.

I have recently had a very blunt conversation with My Grizzly Mentor, and shared that I wanted to be doing something different.

As a result I started working on writing a new book. I’m loving every minute, and I’m more excited than ever.

if you want to know more about what I’m up to. I’m starting a VLOG. Just go to youtube, and type in in the search field. Then you’ll find me, and I have a video that explains what one might call my new beginning.

I challenge you to find what you are passionate about, what you have conviction, and determination to do, and pursue. Then go after it with extreme prejudiced.

All the best.

The Power of a Written Plan


Pushing ourselves to do what we have planned to do, and seeing things come together will always be rewarding.

This is because progress is always positive. When we make progress we enjoy a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.

Never ever underestimate how rewarding it will feel to make a plan, follow a plan, and see things come together!

If you want to find more fulfillment start planning for it, and it just might be easier to find.

I love to make plans and see them through. That being said, I’ll never pretend to be a perfect executor. I struggle with follow through and execution. I am simply determined to keep working at it, and not give up.

Having a plan makes it far easier for me to get things done, and as a result feel more accomplished and progressive. If I don’t plan, it’s far easier for my head to be a total mess. I’m sure I have ADD, cause I can be a real scatter brain. With a dozen things running through my mind at the same time, and a constant itch to go off task and lolly gag while I should be focused and working.

My favorite part of planning, writing goals, having a vision, and knowing that I need to and want to do is it’s easier to manage my thoughts. This is because I have already made up my mind, and determined where I want to put my focus. Of course it stay takes effort to stick to it, and I’m not perfect, but boy does it make a world of difference.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned the power of planners, schedules, goals, etc before. But today’s been really good. I’ve seen the benefits of planning and I want everyone to know the power it has to change your day, and help you make the most of your time. As we make these efforts one step at a time we can gradually improve and find that we are learning and making progress towards who we want to be, and what we want to be doing, and that’s what it’s all about.


Know Why


Always remember your why.

Remember why you are doing what you are doing. Without your motives you have no reason to do what you do. When you remember your why you’ll be able to continually motivate yourself.

If you forget your why and lose your vision then you get no where. It’ll be impossible.
Managing your thoughts will be the hardest thing you do all day. It’ll be a struggle, and you might not be perfect at it, but you have to work at it. Other wise they could get the best of you.

I do what I do so I can defy average. I want to leave average in the dust. I don’t want to be typical or predictable. That’s no fun for me. I want to do things differently. I want to build and own businesses. I want to work for myself. I want to push myself to realize my full potential. I want to become my best self, and I want to earn top dollar doing it. I want to live a life most would only dream of. I also want to have more opportunities than most. This includes opportunities to give back.

What is your why?

What are you working toward?

Who are you working to become?

Do you do what you are doing with purpose?

Always work on having your head in the game so you can play at your best. Don’t get sidelined by fear, or bulldozed by your competitors. Be you, and be your best you. That’s what will make your happy, and that’s who the world wants you to be. This path will not be easy, but it’ll be worth it.

The daily struggle can only be successfully endured with an understanding of purpose, and a determination to work toward realizing a greater vision.
A vision that excites you and moves you to act.

Know your why, do your best to manage how you see things. Don’t give up. Keep working, and push yourself to move forward.


Remember you can’t start without your why, your purpose, your vision. It has to be the driving force behind what you do, and how you live.

The Power of the Day


Everyday we have a choice.
We can either forget the dream, or see and work toward the dream.

This choice is not easy. It’s hard.

We have to continually remind ourselves of the vision we have. (If we don’t have a vision we gotta get one.) Sometimes we will struggle to have the energy to do what we need to do. When we are faced with fatigue, depression, or doubt we need to remain committed, and accept the struggle.

There’s no such thing as a perfect day, we have to be committed to working toward our goals, knowing that we will struggle. The hard truth is that we have to accept the struggle and the challenge.

We may want to trudge forward each day and make leaps and bounds, but this expectation is unrealistic and can lead to burnout. To survive the struggle that comes with persisting toward personal progression we must always first see and accept the struggle.

Your day may not be perfect, but do all you can to allow it to be persistent. Persistent toward your goals and dreams.

Make the effort, do what you can, and never give up.

One’s outlook has the power to propel us forward. When we maintain the outlook we need to have, even on mentally cloudy days we maintain the journey toward the life we want.


Keep Moving Forward


Don’t look back with regret, look forward with determination, and optimistic anticipation. We will have days when we struggle to be effective, productive, or sane.
This doesn’t make us a failure it makes us normal.

Everyone has those days that make them frustrated. What we need to do is be able to realize that these days don’t define us, they help to refine us. There is truly no such thing as an instant success. Success takes time, and relentless effort.

No matter how your day goes be willing to see through it, and past it. Don’t get so caught up in the now that you give up on the dream of the future you are striving to create. It can be hard to have an enduring commitment, and a positive view of things to come, but we have to continually work at it.

Always know that every step you take toward your goals and dreams will be different. Some days you’ll run and sprint, other days you’ll walk or crawl. What matters is that you keep moving, keep working, and keep believing.
