Ask any successful person in life the secret to the art of creation and they will tell you that we are all born with this power to create our lives to take nothing and turn it into something. In my new book titled: I don't know what the hell I'm doing, I share my greatest insights and realizations for not needing to know what the hell you are doing in order to become someone worth becoming. The art of creating consists of 4 essential steps: 1.SEE IT You have to first decide what you want for your life. You have to be the one to see it in your mind and feel it in your heart. 2.BELIEVE If you don't believe it's possible then others around you will sense this lack of confidence in your energy and no hoping or wishing will bring your idea to fruition. 3.ACT Without action there can be no reaction. You must be willing to put in the time everyday and create the discipline that will eventually shape your habits which ultimately influences your behavior. Taking action is what truly seperates the performers from the observers. 4.RECEIVE Fill up your life with gratitude for the journey that you are on. See everyday and every milestone as one inch closer to acheiving your goal. You are the master creator and when you allow yourself to receive in every shape and form you are indicating to the universe and to us all that you are meant for more - we all are. We're all meant to shine as human beings.

In my new book titled: I don't know what the hell I'm doing, I ask readers to get REAL with the story that they WISH to create. I meet so many people that are stuck in a story that they keep playing over and over in their mind. They are so immersed in themselves that they can't discern illusion from reality. If you're in a rut that's the universe nudging you along and pushing you through the discomfort - it's called a clue. To get from where you are to where you desire to be, then you have to be willing to create and live a new story. You can't keep doing the same things over and over hoping that things are going to change - they won't.
You have to want it as much as you want to breathe. No one else can do it for you so stop wasting energy complaining that others aren't there for you, you're meant for so much more. Take 100% responsibility for you and the life you wish to live. I know it's hard, you're sitting there thinking this guy doesn't know what I'm going through, trust me, we've all been there, some of us just made a concious choice to embrace the failure and the discomfort as a gift and a great learning. Today is a new day that will set you free if you want it. Now, let's help you become someone worth becoming, that's a story I want to share!

In my new book titled: 'I don't know what the hell I'm doing.' I share an insight called: What the hell do you want? Sounds simple enough right, but most people don't know - more importantly, they've lost site of what they wanted so long ago. They can no longer see it as a result of the cloud of daily routines and distractions. What I've come to realize is every choice you make whether it's concious or unconscious is creating your future self. You can either wake up choosing to create your day or you can unconsciously allow others to create it for you. When you start to focus with laser precision on what you want to experience then that's where the magic starts to unfold. You have to get really intentional with it- heck it's your life so why wouldn't you! When you write out what you want, you make it real. When you share with others what you want, you make yourself accountable. When you fixate and take action on it everyday, you move yourself closer and closer to your vision.

When you are on fire for your life and passionate about sharing it with the world, people want to be around you. They want to be a part of your vision but ya gotta get excited for who you are becoming and where you're going. Great people of influence never stop sharing their passion for what they are creating. That's called a clue? Remember the famous expression: 'Don't let them see you sweat!' Well, you won't find the visionaries of the world sharing their sad stories looking for empathy, that's another clue. To get where you want to be, means you're going to have to get excited and enthusiastic about where you're going, otherwise you won't cut through the noise and you won't have an opportunity to connect with peoples hearts. Here's the thing, you need to surround yourself with the people that are enthusiastic about life. Hang around Angela and I for 90 days and you'll soon see that we don't keep company with ankle biters and complainers - that's your 3rd clue. You will become the sum of the 5 people you surround yourself with. So, who do you want to become before you choke on a mint? What do you need to focus an fixate on everyday and more importantly, what and who do you need to release that no longer serves your enthusiastic vision.

Since 2007 I set an intention to become someone worth becoming. The actions that followed came at the most challenging time in my life. I know you're at a cross-roads right now, in this very moment you feel as if the world has left you behind. You are filled with fear and uncertainty and possibly even a bit of regret and anger towards others. Today is a new day that will set you free if you let it. Today is a day that you can release the energy that has been holding you back and no longer serves the REAL you. Today you can choose to take 100% responsibility for you and the life you want to create. You can decide that you will become someone worth becoming but it won't happen until you take action to make it happen. I can't tell you how long it's going to take you, it's your journey so only you can decide that.
Along your journey towards creating your life and defining yourself, you will find the real you that the world has been waiting for. Take off the mask, decide what you want most, take powerful action and don't stop until you reach that destination. You may even be surprised at who you've become while you're on that path, someone worth becoming.

Instead of waiting for others to change, why not be their light and show them the way. Instead of wishing that others come to you why not be the light and the one that takes action and clears the path. Instead of hoping that others will make your dreams come true why not be the light and ignite their way. Inside of you is all the fuel you will ever need. Why not be the master conductor, the architect and the beacon in the distance for others that have lost their way. When you are being what you seek, you become a shining example for others to emulate because you're living with the only thing that matters, your passion and purpose, that's what creates your outcomes and I call that living your WHY. You finally get it, you don't need others to, you are ready to be the example and lead yourself knowing that others will be inspired to be the light. That's called a new ROI for the world. Are you ready to light that candle?

This past week I was inspired by Wayne Dyers movie 'the shift' and his expression - Let Go. Let God.Today let go of the fear that has been holding you back. Let go of needing to know how and trying to control the outcomes. Trust in your deeper intuition that you will succeed. Believe in what your are creating and fixate on your dream with powerful intention. When you start to align yourself with the energy of everything around you - you get into a state of flow with the natural order of life. Let go of your resistance to the things that have been holding you back and soon you will find a way to release this energy. Let go of the thoughts that no longer serve you. You were born already knowing. You came into this world as a being of light but somewhere along the way you started to get in your way.
When you let go you let God and the universal energy of everything around you fill you up with a deeper love for you. Isn't that why we are all here anyway? To find love, inner-peace and happiness. Isn't that what we are all seeking? Let go of your regrets from the past, it doesn't serve you in the present moment. Let go of expectations of others, you can't change anyone no matter how much you try. Let go of the stories that you keep telling yourself over and over.
Let Go and Let God, this is your time to shine.

It's easy to be filled with fear but do it any way. It's easy to let others influence us from stepping into our dreams but do it anyway. It's easy to let friends and family distract us from being who we need to be, but do it anyway.
When you choose to play full out and focus only on your dreams, you crush the fear with love for the path you're taking, others want to help you do it. Hell, none of us have much time left here anyway so why not you and why not now? Aren't you sick and tired of being sick and tired? You must be ready for a change! If just doing the same thing over and over, expecting new results would have worked, then it world have worked by now. I'm all about the notion that we are what we repeatedly do but it's time to be and do the right things that are going to move your life in an upward direction.

What is in your heart that you know you must do now? What do you need to say? Who do you need to reach out to? What is your art that you must share with the world. Inside all of us is a call to our source. It's our inner-light and way of being in the world. When you feel detached and disconnected, it's your soul telling you to get back to being you.
So many people live each day without a greater sense of urgency for their lives. This is your time and your one shot to play full out! You need to do this so you can grow and stretch into the person you dream of being. It's going to be a bumpy ride all things worth pursuing are. Just look back to some of the great ones like: Henry Ford, Mother Teresa and Frodo Baggins of the Shire. They risked it all, they risked looking foolish, because they know they rather live with the temporary pain instead of the looming shadow of regret. How do you want to live and love? What do you need to say today? Look into your heart - you know you can do this. You need to do this.

Imagine arriving at the end of your life knowing you only have a few moments left. The only question that swells up in your heart and mind is: 'Did I do it right, did I make a difference?' What if this whole time you were not living the path that you were meant to? What if this whole time you were just following someone else's dream. Do you even know what your dream looks like anymore? Do you even know what fills you up with passion? Do you know how you will contribute to the world? None of us have very much time left. Yesterday, we celebrated my dads 90th birthday and as I watched him give a tearful speech to our family, I was instantly transported back in time seeing him there at my wedding, witnessing the birth of my two children, handing out the gifts at every Christmas for the past 20 or so years, never missing a graduation, a birthday wish or a step. He lived his life with passion and purpose. He played full out and made an impact on everyone's life, especially mine. How do you want to live knowing that you will die. What have you got to Win stepping into your life with greater passion and purpose NOW not someday, without a concern of what others think about you or the life you crave to live. What if you let go of the fear just for a brief moment in time, it's all we have and it's all we'll ever have, a brief moment in time to define ourselves.

Insight number eight from my new book 'I don't know what the hell I'm doing' is called 'Fail Better.' When you're stepping into your life, taking chances and pushing through discomfort, you immediately seperate yourself from the rest of the herd, that chooses to remain in their comfort zones. I've often said that you either exist through love or fear. This emotion of fear is going to be a big player in your life. You can either choose to Fuck everything and run or Face everything and rise. Isn't that what life is all about? Taking chances, stretching yourself and just going for it? I've come to define failure as being alive. The times when I took chances shared my intention, I felt limitless, most alive and that anything was possible in that moment. There is no limit to what you can achieve when you believe it's possible and you start to make better choices.
I know you've heard this before but I'm here to tell you that failing is your direct link to getting you onto the path of what you want. The stars will never be perfectly aligned and they don't need to be! You can shoot for the moon by not knowing what the hell you are doing and it's okay if you miss because you'll eventually land on one of those stars.

Keep it simple! That's the premise for insight no.6 in my new book titled: 'I don't know what the hell I'm doing.' You don't need to know what the hell you are doing - you just need to simplify. Simplifying starts with throwing out all the garbage in your mind that is keeping you from being all that you can be in this moment. It's time to De-construct your life. I define this term as: 'to break down and disassemble what no longer serves you and reconstruct your life with greater awareness. I often say that something happens between the age of 14 and 40, gravity sets in and takes a hold of our dreams. We hold ourselves down as a result of the choices we make during key stages of our lives. Reading and listening to this WHY BLOG and deciding to take action and simplify just one part of your life is a choice. Today is a new day that will set you free if you choose to take action and simplify it.

In my latest book appropriately titled: I don't know what the hell I'm doing, I focus on an insight called: 'Share and Tell.' The need to be seen so you can be heard. There are two kinds of people I meet, but only one that I choose to surround myself with. There are ones that seem to isolate themselves and sign up for witness protection programs never to be seen or heard from again and then there are people that take daily action, they share their intention with every one they meet, they share and tell with the world because they want to be seen.
Where are you currently at? Are you still waiting for your someday and letting others influence your choices or are you ready to leap into the greatest opportunity that has been there waiting for you to grab a hold of it, lift it up and show the world just how ready you are. Don't just do it make it epic, your worth it.

You're waiting for others to change, I get it, but for things to change, you have to take the first step and drive the change. It starts with you living your passion so others can feel the love for who you're being. For others to see your vision, you have to set the GPS and show others where you're going. There's a lot of noise out there and everyone's competing for your attention. To get others to look at you, you have to first take a good look at yourself, go inward and start loving the change you see. To help others aim high, you have to be the one that inspire others to look up just a bit more.

As a guy who exists to inspire others to action, much of what I do is done when no one is looking. The key to success is about rolling up your sleeves and doing the daily tasks even when you don't have an audience. It's about looking in the mirror and loving the person you are becoming. It's about creating the daily rituals that help you condition your mind, body and spirit. It's time to go inward, and work on developing yourself so when it's time for the presentation, the big event or the sales pitch you've been waiting for - you'll be ready. It's one of the things I admire most about athletes. I'm inspired with their focus and determination to spend over 97% of their time alone, conditioning themselves for that 2 minute performance.

Just returned home from a week in New York City and I'm amazed with the explosive growth of the plants in my garden. I planted most of them as little seedlings well over 4 years ago. I'm fascinated with the bamboo plant that started out as just a seed and now after 5 years it's towering over 8 feet in height. I've often written about the bamboo plant taking years to root itself and grow a massive network of root systems below the surface. It won't reveal it's surface growth until it's ready. For years it appears as if nothing is happening on the surface. Everyday, the bamboo exists to be exactly what it is supposed to be. Inch by inch it branches out just a bit more nurturing it's multi-faceted root system.
Similar in life, we can choose to focus on cultivating a strong network and foundation system that supports our massive, personal growth. When we feed, oxygenate and nurture ourselves daily with personal development, physical activity, positive affirmations and surround ourselves with extraordinary people that shine a light on us, we can grow into the best versions of ourselves. When you commit to improving yourself and all those around you on a daily basis, you can't help but grow.
Nurture your self and your relationships and know that your greatest growth is coming. Keep seeding and building that network.

When you're passionate about you, your intention and what you are creating then others around you can't help but feel your contagious enthusiasm. We exist in an age of inspired collaboration so you gotta start thinking about your posture and how you want to be perceived. This applies to how you engage and interact with others in the world - AKA - all multi-sensory touch points: one-on-one conversations, texting, email, your energy on the phone, your social media posts and oh yea, the world is watching you or ignoring you depending on the energy of your posts.
Are you bringing people up or tearing them down? Are you being interesting or interested in them? Are you listening with the intent to understand what people are saying to you or are you cutting them off with your point of view? Are you playing the same sad record of your past life or are you excited for the present moment and sharing your vision for where you're going? Are you trying to get people to change (which is impossible so stop wasting your time) or are you changing the way you look at people? Are you embracing everyone and every challenge as a great teacher or are you living with blame and regret?
Today is a new day that will set you free if you let it.
