Do you ever stop and listen to the birds?

Hi!

I was just sitting here, quietly for a moment, when I began to hear the faint chirp of a bird. As I listened more intently, I heard a couple other birds who began to respond to the initial "Chirp-er."

Soon I began to hear a couple different species of birds, some more loud and distinctly than others (yes that is you Mr. Crow).

Do you ever stop to listen to the birds?

Life can be so busy. We live in a fast past digital world where we have access to more content and information in one hour than our ancestors of 200 years ago did in their entire lifetimes.

With distractions coming at us at light speed and there always being "something else that needs to be done," now more than ever we need to make sure we take a few moments to check in with ourselves and make sure we are meeting our most important needs.

Listening to the birds today reminded me of that.

They also reminded me that my self care and awareness does not need to be a long drawn out process where I have to light candles, do some chanting, and spend an hour stretching (not that there is anything wrong with that).

Being in the moment - getting out of my head and tuning into the world around can take only a moment.

You deserve to give yourself a moment.

Whether you spend your moment listening to the birds, feeling the wind move through your hair, or the warm sunshine on your face - choose to gift yourself with a moment that is just for you.

Carpe Diem,

Jesse

You Must Become Your Own Super Mario

There is one person and one person only that holds the power to take your life to the next level and that is you.

Life isn't like a Mario Brothers video game where you can just find a magic power up and level up in life.
To get to the next level requires 3 things from you:

1.) A decision - you must decide that it is no longer acceptable to continue on as you have. You must draw your line in the sand and decide that from this day forward you are going to live life at a new level.

2.) A commitment - you must commit to playing a bigger game. You must commitment to beginning a new journey and traveling a path few have ever traveled before. You must commit to remaining on the path and acquiring the tools/skills necessary to travel this path. This path will not be free from obstacles or challenges so you must commit to facing them as they arise.

3.) Implementation and Effort - no one said it would be easy, but the destination will be worth the effort it takes to get there. Learn, implement, learn, implement, learn, implement, adjust, refine, learn, and implement more.

If you stick with it your efforts will yield what you seek.

You hold the power.

Today can be the day you begin to take your life to the next level.

Carpe Diem,

Jesse

Three Must Do's to Create an Epic Legacy

What do you want to leave behind? How do you want people to remember you?

Are you living your life in such a way, right now, that you are living the legacy you would want to leave behind?

Recently, I've been having a number of conversations with clients about their legacy. The conversations have been thought provoking and inspiring.

I wanted to share with you some of the key things I have been encouraging them to focus on in regards to legacy.

I hope the below video serves you well in creating your legacy.

From The Heart

Hi Everyone,

I try to be pretty consistent with my Sunday blogs and if you have been following along you may have noticed I missed last week's blog, here is why:

Last Sunday a very dear friend of my died unexpectedly. She was as full of life as any person I have ever met and her passing has been felt by many.

She touched so many lives and inspired those of us who were privileged enough to know her, how important it is to laugh, to love, and to have fun while you can.

I have taken most of this week to reflect and think about everything in light of this loss.  I recorded a few of them in this video as I wanted to share them with you.

Included are some of my most sincere wishes for you.

I hope this connects with you.






Carpe Diem,

Jesse

Here are Three Key Reasons Why Mindset Matters

Hello,

I believe that the biggest obstacles humans face to get from where they are to where they want to be is their mindset (thoughts, beliefs, focus, etc...) and their heart-set (emotions).

If we are able to master out mind and emotions in a way that propels us toward what we want, then success in whatever we want (relationship, business, health, etc...) is inevitable.  If on the other hand we allow ourselves to be relegated to a life of a slave to our mind and our heart, then we will inevitably live a life of struggle, challenge, and un-fulfillment - always wondering what could have been.

I believe that you, and every other human being on this planet, is capable of living your definition of an extraordinary life.  I believe what will allow you to live that life or keep you from it is what goes on in your mind and heart.

To help you with the mind portion of this, I recently hosted one of my "Weekly Wisdom" trainings on my Facebook page.

I have included it here for you to watch and I encourage you to invest the time to watch the training that over 3,000 other people already have.

It's a very powerful training - one filled with insights, aha's, tools, and strategies to help you become a mindset master.

Remember, Mindset Matters, and mastery of your mindset is key to get you from where you are to where you want to be.




Would love to hear your key takeaways from this training.  Please leave them in the comments below.

Carpe Diem,

Jesse
