My valentine this year. Ha. 😂😂😂

💪Goals of 2018 💪
-
One of my goals this year is to be in shape.
-
Reason being, I know and can see how important taking care of your body is.
-
I’ve been committing at least an hour a day of going to the gym.
That consists of strength training with a mix of cardio on weekdays and more cardio on the weekends.
-
At first, I hated the gym. Dreaded It. But, I’ve learned to love the gym and the process of reaching my goals. I’ve learned to enjoy the pain, because that just means you’re growing.
-
I’ve got a long way to go. But, I’m going to enjoy the journey and the process of reaching my goals.

✨Provide Value Upfront✨
-
Before you can convince, sell or get someone to listen to you...you have to provide them with value first.
-
If you want the attention of someone, you have to give them a reason to give you their attention.
-
So, instead of having your own end goal in mind...find a way to provide the other person value. There’s a good chance that turns into a win-win situation for you both.

I love Sunday nights.
-
I get to plan out the rest of my week and reflect on what I accomplished or didn’t accomplish the past week.
-
I’m a person who likes to have a planned approach to everything. It’s important to have things organized.
But, as I’ve learned time and time again, everything isn’t going to go as planned. You have to be able to adapt.
-
I don’t have it all figured out. Not even close. Although, I do understand that I have to put myself in positions to learn. To get better. And, that’s all I try to do everyday. Get better.

📖Learn to storytell 📖
-
A lot of businesses are always in sales mode.
This turns people off from listening to anything that business is saying.
-
In my opinion, businesses need to create content that will intrigue people and appeal to their emotions.
Create a show, provide tips & tricks, create an entertaining video, etc.
-
Stop trying to get people to sign up for your workshop or buy your tickets.
-
Have the end consumer’s attention and gain their trust first.
Then, you can story tell to them about who you are and provide them with value.
Maybe... they’ll turn into a loyal fan.

Been getting asked a lot lately about how to do certain things.
Which I love. I love helping out, giving advice on areas I know I can bring value.
-
The biggest takeaway I get is people asking questions they already know the answer to. They’re just looking for confirmation.
-
My biggest thing is that you just have to start. Start learning, start trying, start testing.
-
Can’t be pondering, looking at every worst case scenario possible, etc. You just have to start.
-
Link in bio for full Vlog.

Something that’s been on my mind lately and that has hit my radar.
-
Too many excuses to not start. People putting themselves in situations to fall back to old habits.
-
I’ve been a victim of this myself. But, I know that if you want something that you’ve never had... you’re gonna have to do something you’ve never done. As cliche as that sounds, it’s true.
-
Biggest thing is to understand what you want, find out what steps are needed to get there top to bottom, then execute. No excuses anymore. Just execution.

2017. You were a real difficult year for me. I enjoyed every part of it though. An eye opening and challenging year that helped me grow into the person I am today.
-
2018. I expect even more hardships from you. To learn and grow from. I never want to be comfortable with where I’m at. Always looking to adapt, reinvent, and learn.
-
I’m real excited for 2018. But I won’t ever forget what 2017 has given and taught me. A lot coming from @refuge_apparel and @pure.growth!

Everyone is trying to be something they’re not.
What they don’t realize is that they been blessed beyond measures.
Blessed with gifts other people wished they had.
Everyone is gifted.
It’s just a matter of figuring out what your gift is and honing it.
Try things. Break things. Learn. Repeat.
Until you understand exactly who you are.
I don’t have all the answers.
But I’m trying, testing and pushing myself everyday.
Because I know how important it is.

They don’t know what’s coming.
Not worried about anyone else’s opinions.
Just on my own grind.
Cause I know...
“In due time”.
