Believe

On this final day of the year you have an opportunity to prepare yourself to receive your gifts. 


Focus on clearing the energy that no longer serves you and embrace the light that truly makes you extraordinary. 


On this final day extend massive levels of gratitude for all of the moments you experienced.  The energy that you shared with others.  


On this final day bless the ones that entered your life on your path to living your purpose. Regardless of how they showed up they are your greatest teachers.   


Tomorrow is a new day and a new year.  It's an opportunity and a privilege to share your passion and purpose with the world.   


You have been blessed with gifts that are unique to you.  When you live through these gifts the world experiences your joy. 


Tomorrow you get to commit yourself to living with greater purpose for the one life you've been given.  


Today and tomorrow is your greatest reinvention to date.  It's your one precious life that was meant to be [LIVED] and played full

out.  


Release the breaks that have you playing it safe and small.  Release the inner beliefs that no longer serve you.   


Today, tomorrow and everyday forward, embrace the special being that is you.

Be What you Seek

Inside everyone of us lives a deeper [purpose] and an innate ability to inspire change in our world. 

Every human being on this planet has been blessed with their [own] set of unique gifts.  You experience these unique abilities through your [passion].  

Joy is your internal compass and your way towards greater happiness. 

When you give your gifts away through service to others you are becoming the very thing you are seeking.

Don't let another day pass you by without believing that the world needs your light.  

Become the very thing you are searching for.  [BE] what you seek.  You will discover through this journey of self-discovery a path to your inner-being that was born knowing [why] you exist.  

We exist as human BEings not as human DOings.  Although the right action is required, avoid the temptation of being defined by what you do. 

The path to greater levels of personal fulfillment lies through this way of being.  BEing is a state of mind and through your inner-belief that you are meant for more, you will uncover the way. 

How do you become what you are seeking?  [Focus] on the joy that you wish for others to experience.

Your light

Inside of you is a light that we all need. When you believe and IGNITE this light it will illuminate our way.  


Your light has been burning ever since you inhaled your first breath.  Up to point the world may not be aware of it.   Others may have tried their best to blow it out.  


What I know for certain is when we all contribute to igniting one another's light the world becomes one inspired and unified flame.  


Step out from the shadows.  Lift up your soul and declare [NOW] to the world that you are ready to commit your light.   


When you keep your light hidden inside we are unaware.  The time to shine is now.  You no longer have to suppress the flame just so others around you won't feel small.   You don't have to extinguish your God-given potential and purpose just to [FIT IN].  


Don't smother the embers that spark your passion. Rather let them burn brightly for all the world to see.

Everyone is a teacher

Everyone that has ever crossed your path was sent to teach you something about yourself.  

It's often difficult to see the light in our darkest moments. It's this light that will illuminate your way.  

When you decide to take 100% responsibility for the life you wish to create, people will present themselves in a way that propels you forward.   

The ones closest to you may not present themselves in the way you originally intended. Recognize this as your greatest gift.  

Discomfort is your ultimate catalyst for growth. Embrace the most challenging energies as your greatest opportunity to develop yourself.   

Look for the teaching in this moment. Ask yourself: "What am I meant to learn?"

Thank them for showing up. They are your greatest angels. You are becoming aware of your greater gifts. 

Move forward with a deeper understanding that [YOU] are here, [NOW] to teach others.

Decide

Decide


"What the hell do you want Gerry?" This was the question, well certainly one of them that kick started everything.  


Answer- "to inspire others..."


What followed was; "What are you seeking Gerry?"


Answer, "Love, peace, inspiration."


When you decide to take 100% responsibility for deciding what you want then you receive what you ask for.  


This sounds easy enough right but most of us have lived 1/2 of our loves never contemplating the BIGGER questions.  


Where do these questions lead? Well when you start living them BIGGER ones show up!


"Why are you here Gerry?" It's the only question that matters in the end.  Why and what am I meant to be and do with the time I've been given? 


I believe that the moment you commit yourself to this 'way of being' then the way will reveal itself.  Your job - cross the threshold. Take powerful action.  Believe it's possible and receive the love you deserve.

LOVE

#whyguy #bigdreamers 


LOVE


Anything you are pursuing in life will only come to fruition through your unconditional love for it.  


Love everything and everyone around you.  All of it has been put in your path to help you become the person you were meant to be.  


Love the person you are becoming by loving how far you have come.  See everyone that has crossed your path as your greatest teachers.  


Love your enemies and the ones that try and bring you down. Just like the day needs the night, the most challenging contrasts become your greatest strength.  


Love yourself unconditionally for it's the power of love that will attract greater abundance and new levels of love your way.   


Love your past by releasing the energy that holds you back from loving the most significant time of your life, this moment.   


Love your WHY @ www.gerryvisca.com

Hold onto your Vision

Thank These past 6 months I've been diligently creating 2 new publications:  BIG DREAMERS, my newest book and VISIONARIES, our latest Defyeneurs MAG issue.  


What I've discovered along the way in interviewing dozens of extraordinary people is the significance of VISION.  Without it you are blind.  


VISION is like an inner GPS that connects your intention with the energy of the the 'UNSEEN'.  It keeps you [focused] only on what matters most to you.  


VISION attracts the way by keeping your heart open to the inspiration that flows your way.  


Anything I'm creating always starts with the 'end in mind'.  This vision becomes a living energy that aligns all of my actions.  


VISION is my candle in the dark and if you're up to some really great things then you're definitely going to be feeling your way through some dark spaces.   


VISION catches me when I'm falling down and failing better.  It cushions my fall so I can back up and get back on the path of living the only thing that matters, my WHY.  


And when I'm living my WHY I know the world is truly helped by me.

What are you waiting for?

We're all waiting for something to appear in our lives that will finally kick start the life we desire to create: a sign, permission, more money or more time...


What if the only sign you need is GO!  What if everything that you think you need gets attracted along the way. 


That's the beauty of just starting. Letting go of having to have it all figured out.  You don't need to know what the hell you're doing but you do need to set an intention.


Here's the thing.  You've played it safe your whole life.  You've played by the rules and you didn't colour outside the lines.  So how has that worked out for you?   


I'm not judging it because I was there at one point being and doing what others wanted.  No more!  This is your life and I don't know how much time you have to really live this question so you can take action on it and see it through to the end.  


I want you to know that you're not alone certainly if you're in my universe.  I'm on a mission to inspire you to take action and create the life you desire.  Together I believe we're just better and the world needs you more than you know.

1 + 1 = 11

In today's fast-paced connection age you don't have to go at it alone.   


You can draw on the strengths of others until you find your inner power to stand tall.  


Some of the greatest minds embrace the collective power of the many. When we stand together we create a connected world.  


The new mathematics of connection + collaboration is 1 + 1 = 11.  Together, you're just better! 


What could you accomplish through the collective energy of the universe? What new innovations could you see realized through the support of others?  


This is your time to ignite your idea perhaps all you need is someone to light the fuse.   


Embrace the collective energy of others.  Surround yourself with people that won't let you play small.  


We're all standing by.

Let it go

What has been holding you back all of these years, preventing you from

freeing your spirit?


It's the one [energy] that controls all others like a domino effect - everything else would start to fall away.  


This same energy misleads you in thinking you need to hold on to it in order to get by and survive.  


It's the very thing that has been holding you back from truly creating the life you desire.  


Before answering this question first fill yourself up with love.  Believe and know that you are love.   You're not alone or disconnected you are surrounded by angels that are ready to take your hand and pull you up.


Let go of the fear and let the love in.

Don't be Right!

Don't be Right! 

For you to be right means someone else needs to be wrong!   This way of thinking and being is not serving the world.  


Your expectations of others will only cause disconnection and fear.  Others don't need to get you.  You are the only one that needs to believe in you.   


Your time here on this earth is so limited and the energy that you allocate to others, expands.  


So what are you focussing on? Where is your energy flowing? Give attention to the only things that truly matter.  


The first step is to catch yourself and lead with LOVE.  In any given moment, you can choose to love everyone around you and embrace their energy as a gift.  


I know it's hard.  We have all been conditioned to expect others to show up a certain way.  This belief system is not serving us or our need for deeper connection.  Let go of the ego.  Release the need to be right.  Embrace the perfection of everyone's imperfections.  


When you start to embrace the notion that God only sends you angels you will begin to see everyone around you as your greatest teachers.  


The universe is your canvas so create your masterpiece for you and the love you feel inside.   Release the expectations of others and go about your day living your one precious life.   

BOUNCE

BOUNCE 

See your energy and everything you are putting out into the world bouncing back to you like a rubber ball.  


I remember as a child living in a very abusive environment having a red and white rubber ball that I carried with me everywhere.  Holding and bouncing it made me smile.  


Holding that rubber ball made me smile at the world. I would look at someone and I just couldn't help but smile and they instantly smiled back!  


I know that these may be challenging times for you.  The people that you surround yourself with may not be showing up the way you like.  My insight is to BOUNCE.  


Let the energy of others BOUNCE off of you.  Smile your enthusiastic smile and project your infectious energy into others.  


Everything you throw out BOUNCES back your way so why not project only the BEST version of yourself.

Look

It's far to easy to be weighed down by the [energy] of the moment.  Fixate on the end result of what your heart and soul desires to create.  


Within each moment you are becoming what you are seeking.   Harness its power but avoid allowing the fluidity of this continual changing state to take you off course.   


Every moment you have a choice. 

- allow the emotional charge that surrounds it to consume you or see it as a necessary step forward to unfolding the bigger picture of your life.   


You are here now in the most extraordinary time of your life.  You are defining who you are and what you are becoming.  It takes time to create your desired life.  Embrace the peace of knowing what awaits you beyond the horizon.

Release the Fear

I've often commented that Seasons change and so do you.  I love the month of October - it represents shedding away the energy that has been holding you back.   


This Fall can represent your greatest leap forward.  Imagine living out the next 2 1/2 months without anything holding you back.   


Imagine the unbridled possibilities when you believe in yourself and finally decide what you want most.  


As I prepare to launch the most rewarding publications of my publishing career I'm not holding back.   Over these next couple months I'm on a mission to inspire the world to Dream Bigger and unleash the VISIONARY inside of us all.  


I'm not playing small and I'm certainly not holding back.  As I witness the surmountable courage of my daughter facing the greatest challenge of her life I'm inspired to help others reach for more.  


Release the fear and embrace the only emotion that matters - your love.

Where are you heading?

It doesn't matter where you currently are, what matters most is the direction that you plan on heading in.  You have the power to set a whole new course at any point in time. Where you stand currently is only a result of your choice to remain there.

Today is a new day and you have a blank canvas to work with.  You can decide what you want most and take a whole new set of actions.  It's going to require a bit of belief on your part and that's ok. Just [focus] on one thing at a time.  The only thing you can control is your thoughts and what you believe is possible.

A great way to generate momentum is to set an intention on what you desire to create then share it with the world. If you don't share then no one is aware! You don't have to have to have it all figured out you just need to believe it's possible, take powerful action every single day and receive the inspiration when it arrives.  This is the art and flow of creation.

So go ahead, grab that canvas and start picturing your life.  Get excited about it, heck it's your life! You only have one direction and that's GO!  Let go of the past and fixate only on the end prize. Everyday that you move yourself forward, the world becomes a better place.

What if?

Throughout your whole life, you've probably rationalized the reasons for not stepping into the life you desire to create.  What if you flipped the switch and imagined What If? 

You've probably heard the word 'NO' over 100,000 times since your first diaper change. What if all you need is one 'YES' from you? 

You've probably been turned down, fired, downsized, super sized dozens of times throughout the course of defining who you are.  What if your discomfort became your greatest catalyst for growth? 

You've lived with: 'What have I got to lose?' What if you asked yourself: What have I got to win?  

Somewhere along your journey, you've allowed fear to dominate your thoughts.  Years ago you only knew joy and possibility.  The world was your oyster and nothing could close you up.  

What if you allowed unconditional love to once again surge throughout your veins.  What could you accomplish with the time you have left? 

What if the world became aware of you!

Lift others up

It's easy to focus solely on you but greater levels of personal fulfillment come from lifting others up.

When you're feeling low and in a funk, the best way to move through the pain is to reach out and help others.   

We're all pre-conditioned to help others. You witness this in humanity during times of global crisis.  Imagine coming together everyday and lifting one another up.  

I'm sharing this with you for I too want to create a world inspired.  We all feel sadness and isolation from time to time, that's just part of being human.  Today you can rise above it all by choosing to reach out and inspire others.   

When you commit to lifting others up, you elevate your own mind, body and spirit.  Reach Out and Inspire others, you'll be amazed at just how great you feel.

When things don't go as planned

What's your state of mind after things don't go as you intended or planned?  Do you become discouraged and un motivated?  What's that inner voice inside of your head saying to you? 

Here's a great a great little tip to get those voices out of your head.  Write down what you're feeling the moment you're feeling it.  On the opposite side write out what you can do about it.  

This seemingingly insignificant action, has the power to ignite your creative juices.  It fires up your neurons and helps you refocus your thoughts and your energy.  

The key is to remain focused on the [BIGGER PICTURE]. That's where all of your energy needs to flow.  The little disappointments along the way are simply an opportunity to look up and do a course correction.  

When things don't go our way, we have an opportunity to choose our reaction.  It's these choices during these unpleasant times, that shapes our character and defines who we wish to be.   

When someone disappoints you, simply say to yourself: "Isn't that interesting" and then go about your day with gratitude for your life and your awareness for noticing it.

Live your vision

I recently asked the question: "How will you love before you die?" In the final hours of our lives, I believe, we will face the deeper realization, of this question.  

Life isn't about asking HOW but rather living, knowing WHY.  Your journey here on this earth is so limited so why not decide on the way, you are going to live it.  

All it takes is a commitment to understanding WHY you want to live your vision.  When you decide on WHAT you want most and commit yourself to becoming, that which you are seeking, you are on purpose with your life.  

When you are living your vision, you are connecting yourself, spiritually, to an infinite realm of possibilities. Recognize there is something far greater at work and your role on this journey of life is simply to decide, ask, act, believe and receive.  Live your vision.

Move one step closer

Everyday you have a choice to move one step closer, to living the life, you imagined.  As I ventured out on my early morning run, I thought about the many parallels with this morning routine.  

I know where I'm going, in life and on this run.  The end destination, is clearly visible in my mind.  The only true power I have in this moment, is to focus my breath and the one step in front of me.  

Years ago I decided what I wanted most, to exist in this world as an inspiration to others.  With every step and belief in my vision, the path widened and became increasingly clear.  

To arrive you have to first DECIDE, what you want most.  Without that picture clearly implanted in your mind, the steps you take, won't lead anywhere.  You'll eventually arrive to someone else's destination, asking yourself, did it all really matter?  Did I live the life I intended to create? 

The energy that's going to keep your momentum running, is your unbridled faith and belief in what you are creating.  

One step at time, taken in the right direction, will get you there.  Have faith, love the journey for soon you'll be busting through the ribbon.

How did you love?

Every morning, I choose a THINQ card. It's the cutest, mini book series capturing my top 156 life questions. I love questions, I ask them all the time to audiences, clients and daily, to my life partner Angela. I guess that's why they call me the WHY GUY!  

A question has tremendous power to take us from an un-conscious 'doing mode' to one of 'being and bliss'.  It helps us pause our lives and become the moment.  

I love the evergy in this question.  How will you LOVE before you die? It took me years to come to the realization that I love myself.  It was though years of becoming what I was seeking, that opened my heart, to receiving love. I was seeking inspiration, defined as, 'in-spirited'. I was seeking a connection to my higher self and a higher purpose, so when I chose to inspire others, the love rushed in.    

I want to arrive at the end of my life knowing I loved without limits and with an open heart.  I want to feel and love my life, in all of its splendor and wonder.  

What new thinking can you start embracing to open up your mind and your heart? What new actions are you prepared to take, to feel greater levels of love?  Live your greatest life now, with deeper layers of love. Release the past, the anger, judgment, jealousy and hate. Let it all go, like a wave of water, rushing over and clearing you. 

Now, open your eyes and your heart and let the love rush in.

What are you still resisting?

I recently hosted a live session with an extraordinary global team.  The energy was focused on getting crystal clear on WHY you're here!   One of the team members shared, how they still struggle finding joy with the HOW's.  

We are all born with a profound purpose.  Our inner-being innately knows what brings us joy.  It's effortless and there is no resistance.  When you are living through your passion and purpose, you are in complete and utter bliss, we call it FLOW.  

When resistance shows up, that's your inner-being whispering to you, it's time to define a new path, that is aligned with your greater purpose.  

A great way to start aligning yourself, is to define the outcomes that you wish others to experience from you living your passion and purpose.  What do you want others to feel? Think about that and live this question.  

When you make it about others, that's when the resistance begins to fall away. When you're contributing your unique gifts with the world, that's when you transform discomfort into growth.

Be the joy

The essential ingredient to living your life with greater passion is to experience greater levels of joy in your life.

When you are truly on fire for you, everyone around you, receives your joy.  Joy is the root of passion.  So what's your joy?  What fires you up and gives you a greater sense of fulfillment?  

Isn't that a question worth living and igniting?  Imagine living each moment, feeling a greater sense of urgency for your life.  See yourself becoming the joy that you are seeking in your life. 

We are all meant to experience greater levels of passion in our lives.  We don't exist, to simply pay monthly bills.  We're here, now for something far greater than just the weekend.  

When you commit to living a life with greater levels of joy, and believe it's possible, only then, will you start living it.  This is your time.  It's always been here, ready for you to tap into and grab a hold of it.  It's your joy so jump in.

Create your own story

Who are you? What do you stand for?  What mark did you make in this lifetime? What is your story and what do you want to be remembered for?  

In this fast-paced world you can easily lose yourself.  Without knowing the REAL you, then it's far to easy to follow others and fill their pages.  

Perhaps you've lived your life taking care of everyone else's. I've been there and I know what that feels like.  You look in the mirror and you don't recognize the reflection.  

Today's a new day.  With courage and desire, you get the opportunity to define and create a 100% version of you and that's extraordinary. You can free yourself from having to follow others. You just need to decide that you're worth it and I bet the farm that you are.  I can't wait to tell the world that story.  

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Do what you love

Can it be that simple? Do only the things that bring you joy.  Let's just imagine that for a moment.  Everyday is filled with doing ONLY the things that you love. How sweet would that taste?   

Why wouldn't you want to exist this way, everyday?  We get so trapped by doing things simply for fear of missing out.  We sign up, enroll and invest in things just because others tell us we should.   In my latest book titled: I Don't Know What the HELL I'm Doing!  I pose a question: How will you celebrate your gifts? 

Inside of you is a soft chewy centre.  When you finally arrive at it, you will unwrap the most delicious part of yourself.  Your unique ability - the STUFF that really makes up the REAL part of you.  The reason it's so bloody hard to get to it, is that you've probably lived your whole life doing everything but the things that truly bring you joy.  You're not alone! 

I don't know how many summers you've got left, but I bet you would rather spend them doing only the things that get you leaping out of bed!

Release the light.

Picture this scenario.  You're with your significant other, out for dinner with some friends, and during the conversation you hear a comment that triggers you.  You are suddenly offended and the next 24 hours, your mind spirals completely out of control. 

Welcome to the human race!  I've often shared that we either live with love or fear.  These two emotions can't coexist in  our minds.  We often judge ourselves for the simplest of things.  We convince ourselves that we're not good enough, strong or pretty enough, not smart enough and the list goes on...

Why do we allow ourselves to live in this kind of state? What I know for certain is that we were all born with a beautiful light. Inside each one of us is a seed of pure potential.  The bigger question is what have you been doing with that seed? How are you nurturing and feeding it?  Remember that every thought is a powerful creation that either breathes light into that seed or it keeps the light from reaching it and helping it grow. 

Every moment is an opportunity for you to take one more step towards the incredible journey that you're creating. Every thought that you allow to enter your mind is either nourishing your seed of potential or its impacting your ability to grow.  

See this light of your life as a miraculous feat of human existence.  You're here now to be and do so much more with the time you've been given.  Be gentle on your soul.  Love all of your imperfections and release the light.

Your last breath

The average person takes about 16 breaths per minute and if you manage to live until your 80 you would have taken 672,768,000 breaths in your lifetime. 

It's something we take for granted.  Something so effortless we don't even need to think about it - it's just there, our breath.  

It's only recently where I've started to really pay attention to my breath.  The sound, the connection to my mind and my heart as I strive to become one with it.  The more attention I give it the more it seems to become an energy force that surrounds me.  

I think about all of the millions of people who came before us and offered there 672,768,000 breaths in their lifetime. How did their life force impact us? Are we a part of their energy, their hopes and dreams.  

With every breath we take our body is filled with life.  The body gives way to your breath and our breath gives way to our life.  When we follow our breath from the start right through to completion a sense of calm surrounds us.  We are no longer separate from one another.  

With every breath I take I feel my life and the deeper contribution I'm making to the generations that will follow.  I am one with this earth, never alone and always connected.  

Make every breath meaningful as you move about your day.  Feel it coursing through you.  Pause and take in the wonder that is you.  When you find yourself feeling alone...remember, just breathe.

The time you have left

If you believe that your time on this earth is finite then you're probably ready to define and create your life now.  

I'm not referring to your current way of being and just surviving, I'm talking about the kick-ass life that your ready to rock!

Everything you've believed was possible has gotten you to where you are today.  All of the thoughts, actions and choices opened the door ways and the thresholds you crossed. 

Are you ready for what's next?  Have you defined what that looks and feels like with the little time you have left?  

Embracing the certainty of death is the greatest way to feel alive. I believe that you're not meant to play small.  What I know for certain is the moment you DECIDE to believe in something far greater than what you've seen you will unlock a whole new set of doorways that will reveal what you're really capable of.

Making a difference

What difference do you want to make in this world? How and what do you want to be remembered for? I know, you're sitting there thinking to yourself, "What difference can I make?"

All it takes is for one person with a powerful intention to ignite a shock wave of radical change.  Years ago, while I was  studying in the field of architecture, I had an inkling that became the spark that fuelled a desire to inspire a new ROI throughout our world. I define it as Reaching Out & Inspiring others.  

That's the great thing about little ideas, they start out like a few snow flakes and when you start to take action and bring them together, they generate momentum and eventually become an avalanche.  

That's all it takes, one idea, the seed of a great intention.  Surround it with belief and nurture it with inspired action, persistence and love.  I've often said that the world needs BIG DREAMERS, so decide what you want most, take powerful action and be the difference.

Carve out the time

Have you decided what you want to create most in your life?  Where and how you wish to live?  To make anything happen you need to carve out the time.  

I love to get creative with chunking out time. I call it GET CLEAR - it's a method I developed several years ago that helps you block out your week vertically by incorporating themes.  

Ok so why is this important? Here's the thing, if you don't carve out the time then you won't make the time.  The key to success is to develop the capacity to supercharge the moment.  You do that by freeing up the distractions in your mind. Blocking and theming your days of the week clears the space and the energy from thinking about what needs to get done.  When the moment arrives you are ready to rock the moment.  

For example, I block out Mondays for really powerful stuff called DRIVE & DREAM.  Every Monday I'm focused only on bigger picture thinking - no calls and no emails.  Friday's are powerful writing days, no social media, calls or emails!  As a 13 time author with a goal of publishing another 20 or so books I need a full day of immersion in my writing. The rest of the week is themed to focus on the key areas of my passion and purpose. I make time ONLY for what matters most: Publishing, Coaching & Speaking.  

It doesn't have to be perfect.  It's an organic process that you can tweak as you go along.  The key is to be very intentional with making the time for ONLY what matters most.  Ask yourself in the moment: What is most important right now?  Stick with your schedule for at least 90 days so your brain can rewire itself and accept this new behaviour and that's what it's all about, replacing older conditioned habits with a few stellar success habits.  

Every morning at 5:00am I super charge my performance with an hour of power: 30 minutes of deep meditation and visualization followed by 30 min of physical activity.  Then I write, publish and share an inspiring blog. 

Decide what you want most, take powerful action and carve out the time to go get it!

Where is the Joy?

I just returned from hosting a 2 day WHY Intensive retreat.  The driving theme was creating a vision that connects.  When you are living with greater passion everyone around you feels your joy.  Can it really be that simple?  Why can't it be? 

Why do we choose to complicate so many things in our lives that takes us away from living our joy?  

When you were a child you knew what brought you joy.  Then somewhere between the age of 14 and 40 you decided that joy was no longer a priority. In the organizations that I inspire - if it's not connected to the so-called ROI then it's eliminated.  

Why do we eliminate the things that have the power to bring meaning, happiness and fulfillment to our lives? Do you not want to wake up each day feeling a tremendous aura of excitement and enthusiasm?  

What's your personal ROI? Mine is to inspire 1 Million people to REACH OUT & INSPIRE others.   Isn't that a world worth creating? Don't we all want to leave this earth knowing that we mattered and contributed to others in some way?

I think you want the same thing.  You and I - we're all connected to the same energy that gives us life.  Our time here on this earth is finite.  One more deep breath and that may be it.  

Today and everyday from this moment on, decide to take 100% responsibility for the life you've been given.  Decide to live with greater joy.

Make the main thing - the main thing

My new book project is called: 'You're BUGG'N my ass!' It's a sequel to 'I don't know what the he'll I'm doing!' The premise: Fixate only on the main thing and turn off all the other distractions.  Here's the thing - I don't know how much time you've got left but an attitude of 'someday' won't get you to far.  

What is the one main thing that you need to allocate all of your energy to, knowing that if you did, you would be living your dreams?  

Make the one thing the only thing.  I know what you're thinking, it's to hard to say NO to all of the invitations from others.  Without making your one thing - the only thing then you are becoming part of someone else's one thing! 

I get the feeling that you've been doing all of those other things far to long.  You're not alone. Like most people you've avoided asking and deciding what that one thing is.  Without this deeper knowing, it's far to easy to take a back seat and let others influence so many other, non-essential things! 

This is your time to get busy saying NO to the others and rather simplify your life so you can start living that one thing that matters most to you.

Believe in the unseen

In my latest book titled: I don't know what the hell I'm doing I share an insight called: 'Believe in the Unseen.'

So what is this unseen domain that we are asked to pour our love, trust and faith into? See this energy as your infinite field of possibilities.  It's your higher power and the energy source for all of your creative power.  

The unseen brings what you desire to create most into to the concious world.  
Why is it important to tap into this energy? It gives birth and way to the formless and brings it to life.  

How do you tap into this energy? Through a concious awareness of it and a deeper realization that you are meant for more.  Living each day with powerful intention helps you tap into this ocean of possibilities.  Daily meditation opens and expands your mind.  It bridges the gap between your current reality and your future self ~ what you desire to create most.  

Believing in the unseen sets you up for success. Similar to a massive iceberg floating on the ocean there is something far larger and more powerful below the surface.  Just because you can't see it doesn't mean that it's not there.

Believe in the unseen and allow it to flow through you for it is this belief that will give you your greatest strength.

Who are you in this moment?

TGIM: Thank God I'm this Moment. 
It's a powerful question and statement all wrapped into one.  Who are you in this moment?  When you come to realize the power you have in this one moment, anything is possible.  

I recently published a book featuring the most extraordinary athletes from all walks of life. It was called 'Push beyond the Pain'.  You can check it out at www.defyeneurs.com/season5
I love capturing stories and insights from
everyday people doing extraordinary things.  A powerful realization that we often overlook is the 'moment.'  

We invest so much time in the past and worry about a future that hasn't arrived!  All we have truly is this moment.  Athletes train for years preparing for that one moment and when it arrives they put everything else aside and [focus] only on becoming that moment.  

As an inspirational speaker I feel the same kind of energy.  I'm training for the moment every moment!  Whether I'm writing a BLOG like this one, a chapter in one of my new books, a live interview in my magazine or preparing for the BIG EVENT, I'm continually being that moment.  

This world of 'multi-tasking' isn't serving your higher purpose.  When you find yourself feeling overwhelmed it's your warning signal that you're taking on to much in that one moment.  Human beings are not computers! We weren't meant to multi-task. 

If you could focus all of your energy to the ONE THING knowing that if you flowed all of your passion and purpose into it with a greater sense of intention - what would could you BEcome in that moment? Imagine the possibilities.

Become the love you are seeking

Yesterday I created a BLOG focused on igniting a deeper realization of what you need to release in your life that is preventing the love from rushing in.  

This afternoon I'm going to share a video on Face Book about these 5 energies that take their grip on us. They trap our light that is meant to shine and reach others.  

This morning I was journalling to the one I love.  I call her 'my love'.  I shared with her how I want to love before I die.  Many of us are living out each day.  One day after another but are we truly becoming the love that we are seeking?  

I encourage you to live this question. "How do I want to love before I die?" To experience this deeper emotion requires us to become the love that we seek.  It starts with loving ourselves.  

It's a new day and it's time to release everything that has held you back from the love that you deserve.  Rediscover the things that you loved most about you.  Reflect on why and how they made you feel.  It wasn't that long ago! However,  in your mind you're choosing to make it feel as if it was a life time ago and you can't recapture it.  

The great physicist Albert Einstein said that time is just an illusion that we create and self impose onto our lives like a curtain hiding us from the truth of ourselves and our potential.   
This is your time to love you, to become the love that you are seeking.

How do you let go to let the love in?

A deep question for a beautiful Wednesday morning. Then again, it's Why Time, the space to question and reflect on what really matters and why. 

I want you to think about the energy that you give to the following areas that make up the EGO.  Then ask yourself, what no longer serves me? What do I need to release so I can let the love rush in?   

1. The feeling of being insulted or exasperated. 
2. The need to be heard and validated. 
3. The need to win, to be right and feel a sense of superiority over others. 
4. The need to accumulate more. 
5. The feeling of being defined by your past accomplishments and achievements.  

One of my greatest mentors is late Dr.Wayne Dyer.  I dedicate this BLOG to him and his teachings around releasing the EGO.  He helped me realize the reason we suffer and torment ourselves.  It's the allocation of energy to these 5 areas that traps us from truly being free to love ourselves unconditionally.  

Throughout my life I experienced all of these emotions.  It's when you choose to create your life - your way that you change your life.  You will feel a greater sense of love and fulfillment when you decide what you want to experience and how you wish to exist. When you allocate your energy towards creation and wrap all of your passion and purpose around it, everything else fades away.  

Today, reflect and live this question: 
What do I need to let go of to let the love in?

Keep climbing...

Is the climb that you're making worth it?  Is it going to take you to a place that truly fills up your heart?  

Is the climb going to give you the love that you're seeking?  Is it going to help you replace the fear with love? 

Is the climb going to inspire all those around you to do the same? Will you take their hand and pull them up next to you, climbing hand in hand? 

If you answered yes than lace up those boots, look up and don't stop.  It takes just one step more, then another and another...eventually you'll be standing proudly on that mountain top with your arms stretched out high.  You have arrived.  

Most people will never finish the climb. Some won't even start.  Most of the ones that do, get dragged back down from the weight of others from the fear of being left behind.  This isn't you.  You have to break free and let go of the energy that's been holding you down all of these years.  

You're ready to defy gravity by defining yourself! You're ready for the climb.  You are summoning a new kind of inspiration that's pushing you upward.  It's easy to stop the climb but you know where that path leads.  You've already been there. 

Keep looking up.

Rise above it

Where you currently exist in your life and how you are feeling and all the energy coming at you is not who you really are! You need to rise above it.  

All of the naysayers, the ankle biters and the ones that just don't get you, don't define the bigger version of you.  
You need to rise above it.  

Look around at your life. Look at all the stuff you've accumulated. Look at the awards, and the certificates neatly hung on the walls. Take in the surroundings, the new paint colour and the pillows, the reorganized garage, all of it cannot tell you who you are really meant to be.  
You need to rise above it.  

You are a being of light, pure potential, created to experience the gift of life.  So how do you rise above it? By noticing and becoming aware of your life. By becoming aware of your deeper self that exists to experience joy (your passion). 

You rise above it by looking up beyond your current state of mind and your circumstances and sharing your gifts with the world (your purpose).  

You will rise above it by knowing that you deserve the love.  You are not alone and you are meant to discover the real you. You rise above it by releasing the fear and replacing it with a deeper love for yourself.   

You don't need to know what the hell you're doing so let it all go.  Rise above it all, it's your time, you're ready and we see you up there.

Do it for you.

Create that one thing that is inside your heart before you run out of time. Let go of needing to know the how. Just lean in, take one step forward and don't look back.  

This is the energy behind my newest book titled: I Don't Know What the Hell I'm Doing!  I'm driven to shift the world's energy. Here's the thing - we exist in a society that dictates who we should be and what we should do with our lives. 

Stop chasing everyone else's dreams. Focus on building and living yours.  Your current reality is only the result of what you believed was possible so many years ago.  It has nothing to do with the new actions you are taking and the life that you are now creating.  

Do it for you.  Do it knowing that nothing will stand in your way and no one else's opinion of you matters.  

Do it believing that everything about you is possible.  As you do it know this, your desire to be the change that you're seeking, inspires us all to do the same.

Let it all go

Think about your life right now and all of the energy flowing to it. The possessions, the accumulations, the people, the demands and all the requests, the todo list, the hundreds of passwords to fuel the multitude of social media accounts, the fears and the doubt surrounding the need for more in your life. 

Now ask yourself, when and where do you feel most alive? Are any of these things truly setting you free?

You came into this world with nothing and you'll leave with nothing so why are you holding on to these life rafts?  

If you do just a bit of reflection, you'll soon realize that adding more to your life will not set you free!  You see, it's developing the capacity to enjoy less that truly releases you from the weight holding you down.  

How do you truly want to live knowing that you will die? What connection does your heart crave? What do you need to release to let the love rush in?

TGIM: Thank God I'm Motivated

How you choose to start off your week influences the success that you'll experience at the end of it.   Is it just another Monday like all the rest or is the first true day of your life? 

What's possible today? What if this day became the one that others write about years from now.  What if today was a defining moment for you? 

For the past several years I've made it a practice to drive & dream on Mondays. It's my way of igniting the greatness, keeping my dream machine turned on and blasting out of the gate with incredible momentum.  I grab the one I love and together we take off and explore the world of possibility that exists in our minds.  

What opportunity is waiting for you to grab a hold of?  You'll find that once you get the wheels turning its hard to slow down the momentum that you've started.  Your intention is on fire and lights up the sky like a beacon that calls out to others.   

Grab a hold of today, no one really knows how many more moments you'll have to Thank God you're Motivated.

How long will it take?

How long will it take to find why you're here? When will you know that it's your time? When will you feel as if you've finally arrived? 

I can't tell you how long it will take. Your journey is uniquely yours.  What I can tell you for certain is to let go and simplify, everything! 

Focus on your inner power and the things that only you can control.  You can't rush greatness nor can you will change in others.  We're all living our own personal journeys and our way takes on spiritual significance when we look up and question why.  

The real questions that we all can start living is: Why do I exist? What is my passion that drives my bigger purpose? How do I want to be of service to others? 

Remember, you can't find yourself in time. Live it now.

Start fresh

One of my favorite memories as a child was the feeling of getting brand new school supplies.  My 2 brothers and I were raised by my mom, who didn't have  a lot, so receiving new school supplies was always a gift I treasured.  

I loved the feeling of cracking open a brand new note book.  You know the kind, that comes in a pack of vibrant colours: blue, yellow, green orange and red. I loved the smell and the feel of all those blank pages.  I relished at the thought of seeing my ideas and dreams fill the pages.  These note books were like my magic carpet.  Where would they take me? Where would I go? What new levels of imagination could I transfer to these blank canvasses of possibility? 

Everyday you can experience a fresh new start. You can choose to look at something familiar for the first time.  

You can choose to let go of the past by focusing your attention and your energy in the present moment.  Grab a new note book and a fresh perspective on the life you wish to create.  Savour the blank pages and go throughout your day wide-eyed and filled with child-like enthusiasm.  Embrace the new possibility of you.

What is the Potential of you?

I love this question. I ask it all the time.  In my earlier education in the field of architecture I would start off each studio project with the question: What is the potential for this place? 

I now exist to ignite 1 Million Whys through the art of inspiration.  It is my intention to create a new architecture for the world - a new ROI where we ALL exist to pull out the best in others.  

Reaching Out and Inspiring others starts with a mindset that you, me and all of us are meant to see more. When we light that candle, a new luminosity will fill up our hearts. 

There was a time not that long ago when you asked this question: What is my potential? You're like a block of marble that the great Michelangelo is about to sculpt.  The realized potential of you has always been there just like statue within. 

It's not about adding more to your life but rather chipping away at the pieces that don't serve you.  Only by simplifying your existence will you be able to reveal the jewel inside. 

Let it all go! The labels and titles and the energy of the past. Practice non attachment. Love without expectation.  Free yourself from the fear of losing it all. Develop the capacity to savour less and become the potential of you.  

The world will be a better place.
