Value Comes from Within

What is the value of a car, a purse, a home, a vacation, a pencil?  Did you answer with a dollar amount?

How about your happiness, what is the value of that? Can you answer that with a  dollar amount?

How do  we quantify things like happiness when they do not necessarily have the tangibleness of something like a car?

This presents the challenge that so many people face: placing a higher value on things vs their own happiness and fulfillment.

We all know someone who bought the car they could not afford because they said it would "make them happy."  And we all see that same person experiencing more stress from the car (payments, maintenance, worrying about it getting any scratches on it, etc...), rather than the happiness they thought it would bring.   

Where does value come from and how do we go about determining something's value?

In the below video I talk all about this and how you have the power to decide what is truly valuable to you.
 
 

 What do you place a high value on?  Does value factor into your day to day decision making process when it comes to things like happiness, joy and fulfillment in life?

You only have one life to live and it is your opportunity to make the most of it.  If you are wanting to place a hire value on yourself - your quality of life than you have before, I can help. Click here to schedule a time for us to chat about creating a greater level of value in your life.

Remove The Limits From Your Life

WHY do we place limits on our lives?  Why?

Is it because we were told we could not do something when we were young?

Did it start the first time someone told us it was silly for us to want to be a baseball player, a superhero, or an astronaut when we grew up?

Regardless of when it started or why the plague of placing limitations on our lives has consumed most of the world!  It is a plague of epidemic proportions - one, that if not stopped, will continue to destroy dreams, crush passions, and squeeze the love out of life.

Let me ask you this, what will Your life be like when you remove some of the limits from it?  How much greater will You dream?  How many more risks will You take because You now have the belief that You can accomplish whatever You set Your mind and heart to?  How much greater will Your relationships be simply because You have the belief that You can make them greater?

Limitations will keep a good life from becoming a great one.  Watch the short video below to learn more about how to live Your life with Zero Limits.  



Magic happens when we free ourselves from the limitations that hold us back.  That is why I am extending this special offer to you to set up a time to meet with me, via Skype, and discuss what your goals are and what limitations we need to overcome to reach those goals.  It is my intention during this time to help you understand exactly what you need to do to overcome your limitations and achieve your goals.
 
Carpe Diem,

The Insidiousness of ALS

You may or may not know about the ongoing interview series I have been doing with my friend Johnny Aspra's Epicurean Cowboy Foundation.

In late 2014 Johnny was diagnosed with ALS aka Lou Gehrig's disease.

He approached me in 2015 about wanting to make a difference and raise awareness about ALS.

Johnny said he was "shocked," how few people knew what ALS was when he told them about his diagnosis.

Folks may have heard about it (Ice Bucket Challenge), but didn't understand what it was (It is not like getting cold water dumped on your head).

Johnny and I came up with the idea to do an ongoing series of conversations where Johnny would take us all along as his journey. His mission is two fold:

1 - Raise awareness about ALS and bring to light the insidiousness of the disease

and

2 - Inspire people to live with dignity in the face of a terminal illness.

I am sharing the most recent episode below. I have to warn you, it is a hard one to sit through as Johnny tells us about an incident that happened on the Fourth of July that left him feeling defenseless, helpless, and let down by humanity.

My hope is that whoever this video reaches, takes a moment, (after you have wiped the tears from your eyes), to ask themselves, "How can I do better as a human? How can I love a little more today?"

My belief is that if we all worked just a little bit harder at being better versions of ourselves and committed to choosing love first - that's when all of our worlds change.

Carpe Diem,

Jesse

What the Heck Are Men Thinking?

I need your help, especially from the ladies out there.

Over the years I have been blessed to work with 1000's of people from all over the planet. I have seen it time and time again - one of the biggest struggles that people face, both in and out of a relationships, is communication.

Failure to communicate or communicating to failure has probably been the cause of more heart ache, heart break, confusion, frustration, stress, pain - heck you name it and poor communication likely played a roll in it.

Among the leading culprits in this communication breakdown: the challenges men and women face when trying to understand one another, or figure out what the heck the other person is thinking.

This is where I need your help...

I am toying with the idea of putting a new program together, but to make the decision, I need your extremely valuable input!

If you could know or understand anything about a guy, what would it be?

Examples: What is he thinking? Why doesn't he show emotions? Why didn't he call? Why does he say one thing and do another? etc...

Think personal and professional, in and out of relationship,  contexts!

Please leave your thoughts and insights in the comments below.  Feel free to leave more than one thought/question.

My intention for this program, should it happen, is to help you crack the "guy code," and ultimately help both men and women communicate more effectively with one another.

Grateful for you taking the time to do this and am looking forward to receiving your thoughts.

Carpe Diem,

Jesse

Poker Is a Metaphor for Life

Hi Everyone!

Quick update before we dive into this weeks blog...

Next week is the final week for the Early Bird ticket sale for Unlock Your Greatness, which is being held this October in Santa Barbara, California.  If you have been thinking about coming, or you want to come, grab your tickets now by clicking here.
 
Blog:
 
In poker, specifically Texas Hold Em, the best starting hand you can be dealt is Two Aces aka "Pocket Aces."  Conversely, the worst starting hand you can be dealt is a "two" and a "seven" of different suits aka "2/7 off suit." 

The great thing about poker is even though we may be dealt the worst starting hand, we can choose to play it like the best hand.  The players will not know any different.

In life, we may not always be dealt the best starting hand, but WE ALL have the choice to choose to play the hand we are dealt like Aces.  We can choose to play our starting hand like the best hand possible and the world will not know any different.

The point is this: we have a tremendous amount of power available to us.  We can choose to look at a situation as "2/7 off suit" or we can choose to look at a situation as "aces," or we can choose to look at it as anything in between.   

Learning how to see the "aces" in life is one of the most powerful skills you will ever learn.

Watch this short video I recorded below to learn more about how Poker is a metaphor for life.

Carpe Diem,
 
Jesse

Does "Shit" Happen for a Reason?


 Hello Everyone!

I hope this blog finds you doing well and living life the best you can.

I firmly believe everything happens for a reason. Even the toughest... the shittiest parts of life, I believe there is a reason to those as well.

The challenge that we all face is to look for the reason, the more empowering perspective, so that when the "shit" does happen, which it will - to all of us, we can deal with it and move forward vs. let it consume us and dictate our lives.

I recorded a short video for You where I talk more in depth about this.  I hope you find this video to be of value.

Enjoy.

Carpe Diem,

Jesse
