Would you eat a bowl of live crickets for $10,000?

Would you eat a bowl of live crickets for $10,000? – is a stupid but crucial question, because how you answer it will help determine the level of success you have in your life right now.

If you answered YES, it is because you have not yet unleashed your inner entrepreneur. You are likely not living your passion, lack confidence in your future direction, and have a scarcity mindset as opposed to one of abundance. As a result, you’re limited when it comes to creating the income, lifestyle, and freedom you want. And eating the bowl of crickets for $10K is something you need to do out of desperation. Especially in the crazy times of the COVID-19 crisis.

So where are you in your life right now? Would you eat the bowl of crickets for $10K?

Success is like growing a bamboo tree

Success is like growing a bamboo tree

Success is like growing a bamboo tree.  That’s because success is a gradual process. It requires tremendous patience, persistence and positivity; and so does growing a bamboo tree. But most people lack these three critical characteristics for success… and because of that, they quit even before they really get started.

You’ve likely heard the famous quote, “SHOW ME THE MONEY!” from the hit movie Gerry McGuire.  This phrase and the mindset that comes with it continues to be adopted more and more to this day.  That’s because we live in an instant gratification society – people feel entitled and expect faster results and success even when they have not done anything to earn them.

To break into your best life and create the income, lifestyle and freedom you want, you must understand that progress takes effort and time. Success is a gradual process; nothing happens overnight without a lot of preparation, hard work and commitment.

How to live your perfect day - every day

How to live your perfect day – every day

Learning how to live your perfect day – every day, starts with writing down what you want, visualizing it with strong emotion, and taking massive action until you live it. Every happy and successful person I know has gone through a personal wake-up call (understand what they really want in life), shaken off chokeholds (fears and limiting beliefs holding them back), and baked up (got fired up with emotion – strong reasons why) to take the action necessary to live the life they love.

You can’t wish your way out of mediocrity. It takes dedicated focus and work.  You must write down what you want on paper, visualize it in your mind with fiery emotion, and manifest it by taking action and adjusting your actions until you get what you want. There is a great saying, “Anything your mind can conceive, and your heart can believe, you can achieve.

Kick-start your heart and become alive

Kick-start your heart and become alive involves picking a rock song that gives you passion and courage to jump outside your comfort zone and experience more.  We all need a song that motivates us to be our best and sing it every day. Doing so will put you in an emotional and physical state that ensures you make the right decisions and take the actions necessary to design the life and business you love.

It was a few years ago when I first started thinking about a rock song that represented the person I needed to become and the life I wanted to live. I wanted a song that really motivated me and would push me to experience more. I can vividly play that day back in my mind, feeling the relentless and overwhelming need to accelerate my actions to create the income, lifestyle and freedom I wanted.

 

“I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul.” – William Ernest Henley, poet, critic and editor

How to unleash your entrepreneurial potential

How to unleash your entrepreneurial potential

Learning how to unleash your entrepreneurial potential is key to designing the life & business you love. Awaken to the possibilities of experiencing more in your life.

That’s because they fear making a change is too risky… a fact proven by more than 53% of North Americans who have seriously considered breaking free from their job with their own business but give into personal chokeholds. They take the easy route of blaming circumstances and others due to fear and limiting beliefs.

Turn life lemons into lemonade

How to turn life lemons into lemonade

Turn life lemons into lemonade and you will forever design the life you love. Doing it takes patience, persistence and positivity to find new dreams, passion and purpose.

Shae did come out of his life changing personal crisis, and is now again pursuing a new dream by helping others.  The lesson to be learned is that if life gives you lemons, just make lemonade. Don’t give up on finding your purpose and what drives you. If one door shuts, just open another one. If you keep plugging forward and focus on becoming the best version of you, you will eventually turn those life lemons into lemonade. It’s that simple.

Your purpose in life is to find your purpose

Your purpose in life is to find your purpose

Your purpose in life is to find your purpose. The biggest barrier for people in finding their purpose, their best life, is that they are stuck on autopilot – spinning their wheels in a dead-end job, in a mundane life, and going nowhere fast. Spinning your wheels fast on one spot for too long will get you stuck in a rut you can’t get out of. You lose the ability to know what you want, and the confidence to act even if you did know. In essence, many people fall asleep at the wheel of their own life.
