pursue your path in life

You need to live your life according to your internal, to your gut, to your heart, to your desire, your drives, your goals, your wishes, your ambitions, your path… Not the path, the dogma, the advice, the what other people think you should be doing, how you should be living your life, what you should be learning, where you should …

brian johson the one thing gary keller

I love Brian Johnson’s work. He’s an excellent thinker and always produces very high quality videos, and online programs. Although my focus has shifted away from real estate sales in the past few years, I am a huge fan of Gary Keller.  I’ve read two of his other books and followed his work since 2006. I’m still a licensed agent with Keller Williams …

The Power of Wearing Blinders

negev desert israel

Sometimes we need to have our blinders on. Don’t give a hoot what others think. Listen to other’s feedback, then toss it aside and follow your gut, the most powerful voice. I was reminded of a great analogy today: “When you’re looking around, you’re not moving forward.” Now sure, technically, you could look around and still be moving forward… I …

Screenshot - Life Doesn't Always Happen the Way You Want It To

I got back from running errands today and the new cooking pot I bought was dented. I laughed. The call I had scheduled this evening got cancelled. I got to stay at the gym longer and had a great workout. Sometimes life doesn’t give us what we expect. That’s cool. Always trying to draw perfect circles in life can lead us …

Just because you have a camera…

Just because you have a camera, doesn’t mean you’re a photographer. Just because you have a blog, doesn’t mean you’re a writer. Just because you have a guitar, doesn’t mean you’re a musician. Just because you have a boat, doesn’t mean you’re a sailor. Just because you have an online store, doesn’t mean you have a business. Many of us …

The Downside of Real Estate Investing & How to Protect Against It

protect your real estate investments

I’ve made a lot of “mistakes” in my real estate investing experience. I’ve also learned a lot. (I’m sure I have a lot more to learn, too.) One thing that FAR TOO MANY “newbie” real estate investors make (as did I) is that they have their “heads in the clouds”. They don’t protect their downside. They only imagine the gross rents …

Here is the first video I found, a TEDx talk he gave: Then, here is the 32-min beautiful-shot documentary: Tip: higher …

Get Off the ‘Easy Train’: The Benefits of Hard Work

Get Off the Easy Train: The Benefits of Hard Work

A while back I wrote a post about being careful with the words that we chose, specifically “hard” vs. “challenging”. (click here to read the post) Well, here’s the thing… In my experience, the universe shows me (via direct experience) how an “opposite” or paradoxical point of view can be valid. That paradox is this… I now enjoy (even though I …

Updates for Early 2014

December 30th, 2013 From my desk in Miami, FL It’s been a while since I’ve written on the blog.  Mostly because I’ve been in a “quiet mode” the past few months. Feeling my desire to spend more time by myself, think more, reflect more, work harder, [practice] not caring about what others think of my actions, etc. This post is …
