In every day, there are 1,400 minutes. That means we have 1,400 daily opportunities to make a positive impact and enough time to take a minute for yourself.



“I am so busy that I don't have time to take a break."

I hate to break it to you but no matter how busy you are, you do have time for self-care. Take a few minutes of self-time so that you can work smarter instead of harder and live a positive life for yourself and others.



Self-Care is "Self-Time"

It is a key component of stress management - to collect yourself mentally and physically and to take care of your basic needs so that you can be fully #present and #impactful for the rest of the day.



Self-Care Restores

Whether it is 2 minutes of quiet time or one personal day, its important to take time to restore your mind, body and health. Micro-moments quiet our busy minds and refuel our bodies.



Self-Care Makes Us Happy

A little bit of self-care can go along way. It can shift our mentality from feelings of sadness to happiness. Just think of the time you heard your favorite song while sitting in traffic.



Self-Care and Productivity

"Happy Person = Happy Workplace". #Positivity in the workplace is created by happy workers (leaders included). In order for happy workers to exist, the workplace must make it the expected culture of the workplace for it's employees to take breaks and to take time for self-care.


Sincerely,

Throughout History, Mankind has looked everywhere else other than self to find the passion, purpose and guidance needed to reach the Summit and Mountain Top of their own life.


We search endlessly elsewhere other than inside of our own heart, mind and spirit to extract the greatest possible knowledge needed to make the right decisions and take the most effective route possible.


We wish and want to be better, smarter, faster and more meaningful in our choices but are always the first one to get in our own way and often inside our own head. Slowing down our progress and stopping its momentum all together.


I use to often dream of the day I would be saved by some anonymous stranger or Superhero destined to share with me his GUIDANCE, GREATNESS, and BLUEPRINT for succeeding in the “Game of Life” but nobody ever showed up and so I kept searching, looking and wanting more but was very unclear of who or what I was attempting to find.


This is what the definition of "Soul-Searching" is and I’m a pro at it but the sad reality is if you don’t know what you're searching for, you’ll never find it.


How could you?


This is the same type of madness that exists in all of us, doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.


It’s called insanity and will literally drive us crazy everyday doing the same work, expecting a different result.


Enough is enough and after waiting most of my life for a savior I made a choice a few years back that started my succession towards personal and professional development.


It’s called EXPANSION and GROWTH and one of my coaches believes it is our true PURPOSE in LIFE


It’s pretty hard to disagree when you start to see that you’re the only one capable of making a permanent shift in your own life that will cause a trajectory of prosperity I often call an “Upward Spiral of Success”.


It’s the ONLY way one can be in perfect HARMONY with the Universe and in doing so perfect HARMONY with yourself.


So STOP fighting your own personal greatness against other people just as human as you and STOP comparing yourself to anyone or anything.

You are UNIQUE, SPECIAL and ONE OF A KIND. There is nobody like you and their never will be.


You are all you need to discover the greatest gift in life, CERTAINTY and in doing so learn, live and apply some of the masterful techniques of the most significant leaders of the world.

When you are in complete alignment with WHO YOU ARE, nothing can STOP you from becoming unconquerable except yourself.


The PATH that you are on, is the only one that matters, not the one you were on and not the one others are on.


It’s your PATH and it’s your PURPOSE in LIFE to get to the TOP, no matter how painful or how long it takes to get there!

The KEYS to a happy, healthy, long-lasting marriage is simple, not easy and it just happens to be written on the sign above us.


NO STOPPING ANYTIME 🛑


YOU CAN'T STOP, YOU CANT QUIT and YOU CAN NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

The moment you do, it’s GAME OVER! 🕹

Now, I’m not a marriage counselor or a recently divorced man giving you advice from his Bumble account and I’m most definitely not perfect or is our marriage, but I can share with you what I have learned after 12 years of matrimony and coaching many men who face the daily struggle of being Married with Children.

The only easy day was yesterday and like the U.S Navy we must get after it everyday.

Both Partners, husband, and wife MUST work together to learn, live and apply the KEYS to a ROCK SOLID UNION.

🗝 KEY 1 ACCEPTANCE

Accept the fact that this is the woman you chose, the partner you committed to and that she is the way that she is and that’s who you fell in love with first.


Accepting this TRUTH and the REALITY that this is the life you both committed to will eliminate the need or thought of what else or what’s next and reduce the fear of missing out on something.


If you truly cannot accept the fact that you’re married to one woman, then you probably weren’t ready, to begin with, and that’s either a timing issue or a personal issue and both are on you!


BRO TIP: You won’t fix your marriage at the bar, club or golf course! Stop running from your reality in hopes of a fantasy.


The difference between lust and love is the work you’re willing to put into the relationship.


🗝🗝 KEY 2 ALIGNMENT


You don’t have to agree with everything, like the same activities or even share similar interests but you MUST be in complete alignment with each other's goals, dreams, and ambitions.


If she dislikes poker… cool, if she dislikes your favorite food… cool, but if she doesn’t accept your family, vision or life aspirations and deep-rooted morals… it’s NOT COOL.

A beautiful partnership starts and ends with mutual respect, trust and love for the families core values over anyone else’s self-interest.


Stop arguing over stupid shit and collide over meaningful outcomes. It’s not healthy to constantly be in a state of fear, worry, and anger.


Home with your Queen should be a healing sanctuary and a positive environment. Set your standards and live by a code.


If a Saturday night at your house turns into the “War of the Roses” take a walk and get crystal clear about your thoughts, feelings, and emotions about the situation that triggered you. Then go back in and have a conversation with only one outcome… PEACE and HAPPINESS.

BRO TIP: Listen, think, feel and then react to her. But whatever you do don’t EXPLODE and lose your cool. Nobody wins in a nuclear war.


🗝🗝🗝 KEY 3 ASSURANCE


A successful marriage starts with operating the GAME of LOVE with certainty and clarity that will translate into assuring yourself and her that she is the ONLY ONE that matters.


Jealousy is a painful breakdown in communication. If you’re crystal clear with your intentions and she trusts your instincts it doesn’t matter what the situation is she will believe in you, where you go and what you do.


BRO TIP: If you’re the Jealous type, STOP blaming it on her. It’s you and all you, and can start from a lack of self-confidence that comes from fear.


Fear that you’re not good enough or rich enough or even good looking enough is not the fear I speak of.


It’s a deeper self-perspective fear from not putting in the work and treating her like the woman she knows and want’s to be treated like.


All the other man did was put an imaginary mirror in front of her face that makes her see the possibility of how amazing she could be treated.


Either way, I truly believe in the power of open communication regardless of the conversation.


The truth may hurt, but lies kill.


Put in the work, be genuine, authentic, passionate, understanding, excepting and constantly working on your #1 or the reality is if you don’t…


SOMEONE ELSE WILL!
