Powerful Rituals with Tony Robbins and the Richest Man in Babylon


Life has been splendid and I am very excited to post here today because I have a special message to share!

That’s right, I want to shed some light on our rituals.

“Rituals define us. All the results in our life come from a standard. And then we follow the standard up with rituals.”
– Tony Robbins

I’ve learned from Tony Robbins and also my experiences that our lives are determined by our rituals.

For areas of life including health, family, and work – we all have rituals that empower or dis-empower us.

We create these rituals through our beliefs (or standards) and repeat these rituals until they are reinforced by daily habits.

What is important here is understanding that the daily rituals you have may or may not be leading you to the goal you desire.

If you are consciously aware of this, you have the ability to change your rituals. However if you are just going with the flow of life and letting your subconscious mind run itself then you will be unable to tap into your rituals and modify them to gradually eliminate the dis-empowering aspects.

I have been studying one of my favorite books which is The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason originally published in 1926.

The book contains several parables and lessons for building wealth and financial prosperity with wisdom and action. This is my 4th time listening to the audio book, it is available for FREE on YouTube (at the time of this post and I strongly recommend this book).

3 of the rules I have been focusing on the most in the last week have been:

1. Pay myself first. A part of all I earn is mine to keep.

10% of what I earn is saved automatically

2. Tracking my earnings and expenses in a wallet app

3. Controlling my spending so that I am not spending more than 70% of my earned income

I must admit that it takes some effort at first to readjust my mindset and incorporate these better financial rituals but I believe practice will make me better.

Consistency is key from here on out, I will continue to study the characteristics of earning money and growing wealth because these elements of life I do desire.

I would like to nudge you towards finding a book you can apply and stick with. Also commit to studying that book, really understanding the content and harnessing the power of that knowledge by taking MASSIVE action.

It is an incredible experience. I love books and I hope you love them too!

P.S. I have just started an Instagram account which can be found by clicking here so please check it out. I would love to interact with you on that platform too. Thank you so much for reading, have an exciting and adventurous day!

How to Level Up with these 2 Sensational Ideas


“GO the extra mile, there’s no one on it”
– Grant Cardone

Howdy friend!

I’m excited to see you.

Welcome to my blog, today I want to share two short and game-changing ideas which have improved my mindset and my results.  I will share these ideas with you because I believe they can have the ability to improve your quality of life and your results.

For the last two weeks, I’ve been working as a front desk clerk at a wonderful hotel and I’ve been applying these two powerful ideas. Without further hesitation, let me introduce the first idea which is:

Living Life as an Experiment

I am currently involved in a book study course led by my one of my mentors, Tina Marie St. Cyr, and she presented the idea of Treating Life as an Experiment.

The course is 10 weeks long so she introduced this idea by having her students agree to leaving doubt, worry, stress, fear, anxiety, etc. behind for the duration of the course.

I decided to leave expectations behind as well. As a result, I find myself disappointed less often because life is always a surprise in the way that things unravel.

Tina Marie concluded the idea by communicating that whatever works, keep it. And if it doesn’t work out in your experiment, then remove those elements and try again with new thoughts and plans.

I encourage you to try this idea out.  Pick a period of time, perhaps the next few days or week to live your life like an experiment. Leave the fear, worry, self-doubt, wanting to be normal, hesitation all behind and step into a limitless, courageous, and open-minded experiment.

Once you possess that mindset to experiment and create, you can become obsessed which is the second idea I want to present in this post:

Granting Yourself Permission to be Obsessed

I must introduce you to a new mentor of mine, Mr. Grant Cardone.  He is a motivational speaker and also an author. Here is a small video that he has produced which I watch almost on a daily basis to elevate my mindset to do an outstanding job at work.

Grant’s dedication is infectious and this idea of giving yourself permission to be obsessed has radically changed the way I learn on and off of my job. I want to learn everything, I am really not holding back.

Every day is another chance for me to develop my burning obsessions in life.

But enough about me, are you open to any of these ideas?

I know they aren’t simple and elegant however they have proven to be effective mindset hacks for me to get desirable results. Anyhow,

Please comment on what you are obsessed about! 🙂

Let’s Discover A New Frontier with Our Friend Napoleon Hill


Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
– Napoleon Hill

Simple, piece of cake, right?

I’m here to see!

For the last 5 weeks, I have embarked on a journey of studying Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

In conjunction, I have been consciously keeping my mindset above negative waves and constantly reinforcing my experience with empowering thoughts and emotions.

I know I can further improve on sharing my enthusiasm and energy with my family, friends, and coworkers.

At the moment, I receive good feedback about my energy, humor, and enthusiasm but I know I can be much better!

I am focused on becoming more influential and more successful in blogging and investing so I truly enjoy the quote below:

Success comes to those who become SUCCESS CONSCIOUS.
– Napoleon Hill

The success conscious mindset empowers me to the level where I feel like a super hero!

In my belief, this is the ultimate positive mindset where we have the ability to feel all the human emotions however we consciously choose to resonate on the positive thoughts and emotions.

We win over negative and dis-empowering thoughts and emotions by removing focus and attention away from them and transferring that focus towards our small wins or good things currently happening in our life.

If you’re reading this, then I assume you have access to the Internet and some computing device that you can use to learn from – which would further lead me to believe that you have many other things to be grateful for. Rapidly remind yourself of these things – whether they be relationships, accomplishments, objects, etc. when the negative thoughts attempt to invade your mind.

In essence, the main idea of this message is that the mind is our new frontier.  The mind is the environment where we can abolish our fears and pursue our destinies with ferociousness and rigid persistence.

The mind is a beautiful and powerful garden that will grow whatever seeds you plant.

With that being said, I would like to ask you to maintain positive thoughts this week, stay in high energy and awareness above the negative ideas that enter your mind and are transmitted by others.

Also be aware that you will be challenged throughout the week but make it your mission to take life day-by-day and celebrate the small wins and the good things that are currently going on in your life!

How Iced Coffee Became A Courageous Conversation


“Motivation doesn’t create action, action creates motivation.”
– Phuong H. Nguyen

What a sensational day it has been! I am excited to be alive and grateful that you could stop by for a quick read.

Today, I met some outstanding people at Beans – my favorite coffee house!

I must admit, I was overhearing their conversation and I bursted into laughter at a witty remark made.

Suddenly, we all began laughing and I introduced myself by asking what their names were first.

They were a cozy couple – the man was named Chris and the woman was named Gina.  I could feel their warm souls and positive energy; for a little more than an hour, we shared our life experiences briefly while they sipped wine and I sipped my iced coffee.

As the conversation became deeper, I began taking copious notes as they brought more perspective to my vision.  We were able to achieve that depth because:

I built rapport quickly, laughing with them, modeling their body language, and listening to listen rather than listening to reply. These communication skills have served me so well in the past few months and I truly believe, YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

They reminded me of how powerful philanthropy was and that I did not have to travel the world or do something grand to help someone in need – I could search in my own city, in fact in my own community to start making a significant positive impact.

Of course, they asked about my age.  I truthfully told them I was 21 (and will be 22 in 9 days) and they were astounded!  They both agreed I had plenty of room to grow and ample opportunity to give my time, money, and energy to worthwhile causes.

The conversation mostly revolved around this life-contemplating question:

What are you passionate about?

I struggled to give a definite answer although I obviously brought up money.  And then Gina reminded me of something profound.

She said with a genuine glimmer in her eyes that I could feel in my heart: money is just an instrument to help and serve others and it is not the end goal.

I really resonated with this encounter and walked away with a bucket full of wisdom. Perhaps the greatest piece of knowledge I took away from this conversation was that ACTION is necessary – even if its not the perfect action because it can be corrected along course.

In conclusion, action is the key to getting the results you desire from life!

Figuratively, I find myself shivering at how grace can arrange new chances for me to meet others who may share a message or experience with me that has the ability to change my perspective and course of action.

Life is full of possibilities and I want to politely remind you to laugh and enjoy it. Remain open minded to opportunities which may present themselves in unique and unexpected ways!

We must be ready to act! From this action we will gather motivation and momentum to continue along course or discover something else we are truly passionate about. I hope you can take something from this post – have a wonderful day!

1 Essential Lesson to Quickly and Deeply Connect with Others


We are each unique in many profound ways and yet we are very similar to one another.

As humans, we are wired to connect and there is an innate driving force for us to be alike.

This is the premise of a remarkable lesson I learned from Tony Robbins – how to model other people.

Putting this lesson into action has lead to today – a very Merry Monday for me!

I participated in a speech contest and won first place in Table Topics. I laughed and enjoyed my life. I connected with others and shared in their experiences.

But how did I get so comfortable?

I did not possess these communication skills three months ago.

I learned something. I put it into action. I gathered feedback. I improved my process consistently…

And here I am today, repeating the behavior almost on a subconscious level.

Naturally, I try to remain in a positive and high energy state which I use to boost my friends, family, and coworkers.

I have developed my listening skills, I talk about what others want to talk about, and I treat others how they want to be treated.

Through modeling their behavior (body language, hand gestures, eye contact, vocal variety, energy, mood, etc.) I have become someone who can truly get along with anyone.

With this ability to connect in a snap, I can have a great time being just like someone.

Of course, I’m not so obvious about copying their movements or tone rather I am matching them on their level.

This is the gem for today. When you are meeting someone new, or talk to someone you know already – match them on their level.

This works no matter if you’re twenty or fifty. It works for students, professionals, and even intimate relationships.

Just try it out! Model someone with no intent to manipulate them, but rather to improve your communication and your connection with them.

That is all! I sincerely appreciate you for reading my blog. I use your feedback to create the model for my content so please comment on how you connect with others.

Have a super day!

You Won’t Believe This – Music Can Enhance the Quality of Your Life!


One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
– Bob Marley

Music can give us an incredible boost in feeling and energy!

I enjoy listening to music on a daily basis.

With a variety of tunes, I can get my blood flowing and my ideas going. I also have a few playlists that I listen to when I want to fill myself with positive emotions and vibes.

I always carry my phone with me because I am addicted to the convenience of streaming music.

Recently I’ve discovered that certain songs can increase my productivity, or enhance my ability to relax, or even recreate the atmosphere and feeling of a positive experience I’ve had in the past.

There’s just something spectacular about different instruments, artists, and genres that I often find myself dancing in a happy and upbeat mood!

I am grateful that music adds another unique layer of flair to my life and I love it!

Today is a rainy Workable Wednesday in my home city of Houston, TX.

Secretly I crave the rain – I will embrace the weather and listen to my music because I am grateful to be alive.

I am also very grateful for you, for reading this far. I want to encourage you to embrace music today. If you like to dance, then join me!

I believe dancing can be great stress relief, it can be silly, and it can be good exercise all at the same time. No matter what you decide,

Have some fun today! Peace.

The Secret Importance of Balance in Our Lives


Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
– Thomas Merton

My mom is always asking me, when are you going to go on vacation?

My response is usually, when I figure it all out.  She knows I am an ambitious soul.  She knows I will commit myself until I succeed.

However when I discover something that piques my interest, I wholeheartedly pour my life into that area.  As my best friend Paul said, I don’t just go part time or full time.  I dedicate ALL TIME to my interest(s).

The benefits are immense.  I learn at a rapid pace, become very immersed quickly,  and in a few weeks or months I am clearly displaying understanding and proficiency in the interest.  But something always happens.

I achieve a certain level of success.  Or maybe a certain failure emerges.  Or maybe my perspective changes but the common result is that I finally blow out.

At this point, the imbalance of work and actually living and enjoying my life has become a point of shut down.  I am hesitant to do the work I know I love.

It is a real challenge for me.  I had to decide to take a break from blogging to regain clarity and focus for my life.

Today, I’m back and I’m better!  The purpose of this post was simply to remind you to balance your work, family, and personal life.  When these areas are in harmony, and you are growing in each area without spending too much time and effort in just one – you can experience a profound amount of joy and fulfillment.

Appreciate the process.  Appreciate the moment that is now.

Have a wonderful day!

Discovering Your Next BIG Book with Napoleon Hill!


What’s up!  How are you doing today?

Great – the grind is on, and it is another Workable Wednesday. I had a moment yesterday, I was thinking about how far I have grown to get to this point in my life.

I thought about the many steps forward I have taken on my journey since the first book I read seriously.

Where would my life be if I would have never discovered that first profound book?

I would be in a desolate and hopeless place. I am grateful for the light I have now, the light I can share with you through this blog.

The first book that sparked my flame was an audio copy of The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. I found it on YouTube so I am very grateful for that experience.

The funny thing is – I actually thought I knew a fair amount about the world and understood life on a deep level however this first book opened my mind to what I truly did not know.

Soon I began to ponder the possibilities in life, I began to ask and answer open ended questions such as:

Where do you want to go in life?

Where do you want to grow in life?

This could be physical, mental, spiritual, etc.

I also discovered the powerful question:

Who is successful that has what you want already?

As a result of this first profound book, I was awakened to take immediate action, I started using a journal, and I have also found thought mentors who I am currently modeling to obtain similar results.

Books are Portals to Another World

Great books offer a unique perspective and they invite the reader to deeply immerse themselves into the stories and message.

On this blog and in life I am primarily a nonfiction consumer, so I am talking about nonfiction books in this post.

When you grab a great lesson book, it will allow you to focus your energy on winning more in life.

Books are magnificent! This world of knowledge is waiting for you to discover and use it.

Humans Live Within These Pages

I am mostly interested in books that are well acclaimed and acknowledged as valuable to the people I look up to.

My diet of books usually has stories that allude to lessons in life. These books educate the reader on how to achieve certain desired outcomes (and also how to avoid undesired outcomes).

I am happy and very grateful to discover the vast variety of experiences and wisdom in the 50+ books I have read in the last year.

Remember, you only need ONE book to ignite your amazing journey or to revitalize the one you are now.

Books can bring more light into your life because nonfiction often shares how other humans have received enlightenment.

Rapid Reading, Learning, Applying, and Resulting

The more you read, the more you know.

The more you know, the more you can learn.

The more you can learn, the more you can apply the lessons to change your life for the better.

I have significantly increased my reading speed since my first few books and now I have a process for reviewing books and applying the notes to my life.

For the first time I am utilizing a study group to learn and use the knowledge to get what I truly want out of life.

I am a strong believer that the right books can change your life in a significantly empowering manner. With that being said, please join me in selecting and reading your book!

My current book is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

If you are having trouble selecting your book, I would like to suggest that you find someone in this world you want to be like. Then, identify which books they have read which have impacted their development in life.

Pick one of those books and buy it! It is totally worth a better and more enlightened future for you. I would like to know what your next big book is in the comments. That is all, have a fantastic day!
