When you find a quality woman, give up all side chicks, unlock your social media and your phone, make her your priority and give her the respect she deserves and be yourself because if you're trying to play any little games she'll see through that like you can see underwear through leggings. A quality woman will explore and strengthen your mind instead of playing with it and she will make you a better man without you even noticing. And for the record - it takes more of a man to stay faithful to one woman instead of having many, don't fool yourself - that will only impress company that you shouldn't be around if you are looking for success in life. @beautybydrcat
Sometimes things aren't always what they seem. You need to find your own path and focus on it. It takes a strong person to resist joining the crowd or follow advice only because it's practiced by many. Nonconformists make things happen. Being antisocial sometimes means that you maybe are just anti-stupid. Many times we take it for granted that common sense is so common and remember that right is right even if no one is doing it and wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.
I'm truly grateful for meeting a variety of already accomplished or ambitious people on their way to achieving some great things. We always dig into deep conversations and many of them (to my big surprise) always say that they have this amazing idea but they are hesitant to tell me, jokingly implying that I may take it. Bro I can throw at you more ideas than I'll be able to write down during a lifetime. See the biggest boner killer when it comes to ideas is TIME! There is not one bad idea out there (beside some people becoming politicians) when it comes to business. It's all about the implementation and then how you package it and sell it. Unless you have found a way to cure cancer and solve world hunger I really won't be impressed and trust me hearing other people's ideas can sometimes stretch our mind beyond the tolerance level that triggers you to give unwanted feedback that can either boost your confidence level and make you pursue it or you may leave our meeting taking one of my ideas as I will probably give you at least 5 of them related to the one you initially told me. Never be afraid to share your ideas and fish for feedback from others - I would feel confident asking for feedback on a bulletin board. Be careful about bringing up the details of implementation but when it comes to ideas, I could share each one with every single person among the 7,484,325,476 guests of this planet.
The iron game can definitely teach us a thing or two about life. When things are weighing you down there are only two ways out; you'll have to push back or they'll carry you out on a stretcher. There is no other way. And just like our workouts, life throws at us some heavy days and when that happens just handle it sunshine.
Mediocrity is sanity. If you want a cookie cutter life and you want to know how your life is going to be in 30 years you will be fine by being "normal". To go to places very few have been to, you'll need to bring that troublemaker and rebel out of you. Crazy is good. Crazy is needed. Maybe we are not too crazy, maybe you are too sane for us?
So a guy walks into my elevator last Saturday evening in Miami accompanied by two of his party friends, his mood level was vodka. After his failed attempt to start small talk with me and my friend he started badmouthing his wife and his marriage followed by a final statement to us while exiting the elevator telling us to never ever get married. I quickly replied that I'm very happily married and that he should reconsider his life choices. He scoffed and said, "give it 5 years." I replied that it has been 7 years and it's getting better every day. He walked away. This is a true story. I hear similar bitterness daily hidden as locker room talk. Do NOT be that guy!
Love is not rare but people who will recognize true love and work hard to polish, praise and pamper it daily are rare. Physical attraction and mental connection are one. If the "elevator guy" put in the same effort in his relationship as he did in the beginning of his marriage his level of bitterness and patheticness would be lower. Don't confuse falling in love with real love. Small boys and girls fall in love. True love is a process of long lasting affection that can be handled and understood by strong individuals who care. So be careful about the words you spit out about true love and marriage. With that said I want to wish a Happy Valentine's Day to my gorgeous wife who is the reason I stopped being the elevator guy. Love you @beautybydrcat
Living in Los Angeles it's very common to do charity events, red carpets and other gatherings that I no longer like to attend simply because people who attend them or who put them up seem to care more about the PR around it, who finds out about it, and what media covers it rather than focusing on the actual purpose of the charity . Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out who you are. Charity sees the need, not the cause. If you really want to help, do it quietly and don't televise it.
I never wake up wondering why I'm here or ask why me. I wake up asking myself how I can make today better than yesterday. Achieving your goals isn't just working on the things you like , most of the time it's doing stuff you don't really enjoy but you love the process of achieving your set goals and that includes Friday grind, early mornings and late nights.
It's never about money or things but about outworking and outlearning yourself in everything you have ever done or known. That's satisfying. Happy Friday to all those who hustle like it's Monday. #happyfriday#fridaygrind
Creativity is trying new things without worrying whether or not it's going to work and being motivated by the desire to achieve and not to compete. Sports and art should not be confused with each other. Both are important and teach us different things in their own way but you need to know when to apply one or the another.

You don't have to understand why some people don't like you; concentrate on the ones who do. That's the only time I don't get deep about things...but most of the time it is my ambition that offends people. I be like, brb just gonna go build my empire. #doyourthing @clinteastwood
I feel the older I get and the more failures and success I achieve in life, the more I'm learning to handle life. The more I search for something the more I find myself. It's also less important to have a lot of people in your life and more important to have good people in your life. To find time to get to know yourself, to learn your strengths and weaknesses, to create a deeper and more content you, it will take some peace and loneliness to help you get in touch with yourself without any influence from people around you. The more you find and get to know yourself, the less you will allow people to tell you who you are. That will automatically narrow down your circle. Get to know and evaluate the people in your life then decide where they fit in. Try to remember who helped you, who left you in hard times, and who put you in difficult situations. Everyone you meet has a role in your life, some will test you, use you, some will teach you, some will try to break you, and some will mean well and they will bring positivity and joy. Those who loved you when you were not so lovable and those who were by your side when you couldn't do much for them, always remember them.
As the great Muhammad Ali once said: "The man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.” That is so true, my priorities, values and view on life now at 34 are completely different than when I was at 24. Life is your own journey, accept no one’s definition of your life and who you're. Find yourself. Define yourself. Be yourself. #yourself
I remember that time a few years ago when we invested everything we had in our businesses and our daughter was just born. My wife could feel my worry. She kissed me and said, "We got this baby, don't worry, we have each other." She was right @beautybydrcat
