My buddy @davidmeltzer crushed this. Perspective is definitely an accelerator. I find that the reasons most people are either hard on themselves or they are not happy, is because they are constantly striving for future outcomes that they are attached to.
-
Believe me, I get it. For so long I was attached to outcomes, which made me try to force things to happen a certain way, instead of just embracing the process and working on what was right in front of me.
-
I’m going to tell you right now, the imperfect present is beautiful. Working on what’s right in front of you is beautiful. Trying to understand the intricate details and the parts of the journey is beautiful. Having the honest conversations with yourself and others is beautiful.
-
You want to get centered? Try giving up on your expectations of the future and of others and start giving into embracing all the good that’s right in front of you. That will shift things real quick for you. That will help you quantum leap.
-
Thanks for always putting out great content @davidmeltzer and again it was epic having you on our podcast.

EDITED 🔥🔥If you have to explain yourself, they’re not your people. My favorite thing anyone in my circle does, is remind you that you don’t have to explain anything. They get you.🔥🔥
-
Find your tribe and love them hard cause anyone committed to misunderstanding you is a waste of your time. Their condescension is their struggle, not yours.💥

💥💥 Here’s to your reboot. 💥💥

The days I was most tired, I still showed up. I always found that one last push I could give. It’s probably the way someone in the gym feels. The fact is, the road to building something truly great takes serious work, time and patience.
-
I’m always telling people that it would be advantageous to pursue anything that is alignment with your soul; that bigger picture vision because it will not be overnight. Even the shit that’s glorified on social media has a backstory and they too are still trying to figure it all out. That’s the journey my friends.
-
Building something for mass appeal and scale takes time. It’s truly an evolutionary process. I had mentioned my friend D @runwildwithme_ in the video. It took her 10 years to say she’s truly found her style. I’m sure that will evolve too, but to see someone truly feel their style after a decade long of discovery is a feeling I want all people to understand.
-
We spoke about it because people are always coming to us to ask us to teach them things. With her it’s art. With me it’s writing, mindset, spirituality, business, branding, you name it. And the fact is, it’s not something taught over night. It’s learned through dedicated practice. We can certainly teach it, but that’s only part of the journey. The rest is up to you to build something that you’re truly dedicated to it’s core mission and the overall purpose of your life.

Energy magnetizes more of the same energy. If you show up for your life, your friends, your relationships, your work, your brands, your businesses and society, they will meet you there.
-
The law of reciprocation is real. What you show up in, shows up for you. What doesn’t show up for you, simply goes by the waist side and isn’t it freeing knowing you don’t have to do shit about what doesn’t reciprocate?

🔥🔥Find your vibe, stay in your lane and ride that wave all the way. I get asked all the time what do you do when people project onto you? Let’s break this shit down real quick.🔥🔥
-
What is projecting? In short, it’s a negative emotional response that an individual is dealing with either at the subconscious level or conscious level, and is sending that out onto other people.
-
How do you know it’s being projected? Because whatever is being thrown at you is not given with respect, integrity and honesty. Now, I’m not talking about someone telling you the truth and you not liking it. I’m talking about pure negative behavior towards you.
-
How do you deal with that energy? Let them project, but don’t let it sway what you know is your truth inside. There are two ways to handle it.
-
First, you must ignore that energy. It needs you to fuel it. You cannot fuel their bad energy or that shit.
-
Second, should the moment call for it, you may have to check someone on their shit. I do also believe in this as well. The only caveat is that you cannot check someone from their energy frequency. You must do it from a place that let’s them know, a.) you don’t take shit from anyone, and b.) you’re happy to discuss their shit if they’re open to owning it.

Are you an observer or a closer? This is massively important to understand. The signs and answers you look for everyday for your business, brands, relationships, opportunities and more come to you constantly. However, depending on your status . . . observer versus closer, will determine your outcome.
-
Observers CANNOT pull the trigger on the things they need to do out of fear, skepticism, excuses, or any other number of reasons they talk themselves out of it, which is uusually related to time, energy and money. This is dangerous because it shows a lack of faith in your dreams, your vision, the bigger picture and most importantly, a lack of faith in yourself.
-
When opportunities strike for an observer, they don’t have the money to pony up, but they can buy $8 to $10 fucking lattes at Starbucks or smoke a pack of cigarettes each day. Or they don’t have the time because they’re too busy giving their energy away to things other than themselves, like solving other people’s issues. Ironically, that causes a false sense of achievement.
-
Closers recognize the law of attraction. They know what they need and when the universe provides, they take action. They don’t make things harder on themselves by asking for things and then immediately rejecting them from quote unquote “not” having enough time, energy or money.
-
Closers move. They are steadfast, present, driven, focused and above all GRATEFUL the opportunities presented themselves.
-
The game of life will always be about closers and observers. You are either in the game, playing it to the best of your abilities regardless of a loss or win. Or you’re on the sidelines, wondering why things haven’t started happening for you yet. Welcome to business. Welcome to relationships. Welcome to your health. Welcome to your life.
-
Thanks @i.am.willpowered for posting that regarding @nicolemyden ‘s event.

You were born to create. Your time on this Earth is meant to bring creative expression in any such form that it can live through in order to transform and impact others.
-
You are more than your job. You are more than your routines. You are more than your shortcomings. You are more than the stories you keep in your head that aren’t in alignment with your true calling. Go create. Build an outlet for yourself and tell me it doesn’t attract abundance.
-
Creativity is movement. And movement is attraction. For attraction exists because it has something that it resonates with. The moment you move, is the moment everything happens for you.

Whatever you think I’m behaving like is not what I’m behaving like. It’s a direct correlation to your vibes and energy. Do you understand? I don’t even exist in your world other than what you put out.
-
Sooner or later people will have to take responsibility for their direction of everything and everyone by the energy they bring to the world. You only see what you’re creating. Now tell me how we’re gonna act.
-
Post brought to you by my friend @nicolemyden with this 🔥

@drdre nailed this. It’s love for what you do that no matter what you’d continue doing it. I have people ask me all the time, how long will you go with all of this stuff. My answer . . . forever. Till I leave this earth.
-
Why? Cause I love what I do and I know why I’m doing it. I knew I wanted to change the media game and I knew it would be a long journey, but honestly, I never thought about it that way. I dove head first. And so should you.
-
Before you start that new fashion line, record your first mixtape, paint your first painting, move to LA to become an actor or actress, go to MBA school, whatever, make sure you know why you’re getting into it. You don’t have to know how it’s all going to come together, but you need to make sure the decisions are coming from your core; a place that’s intentional; where you know the outcome cause you love what you do.

Let me save you some serious time. Pull back all the layers and the masks and just be exactly who you are. And I get it, many people say they are being that way, but truly truly being comfortable in your skin is an artform.
-
You really want to test where you’re at on this scale. Try this:
-
Next time your boss says something that’s against your morals and values and compromises your integrity, will you say how you really feel knowing that it could cost you your job? Or will you fall in line. PS – I’m not saying go get yourself fired, but it does help show you where you’re at in speaking your truth and keeping you honest versus compromising your soul.
-
You could apply this to mates, business partners, friends, family, everyone and everywhere. Are you speaking your truth, which is what the good ones want from you. Or are you saying what you think others want to hear. The good news is, the good ones will love you even more for keeping it real.
-
Keep in mind that I’m also not saying “pop off” at the mouth with your opinions. I’m simply stating that being in your vibe and speaking your truth and not worrying about what other people may think will set you free to do what you really came here to do. Otherwise, you’re just blending in to “force” things to be the way you think they should be versus simply being exactly who you are and letting all the right things happen naturally.

Damnnnnnnnn💥💥I’m just gonna leave this right here.💥💥
-
Sooner or later you’re going to realize your worth and it will be unacceptable to be treated any other way, period, end of story.
-
Your worth, your value, your honor, your honesty, your integrity, your humility and your grace are all to be celebrated and anyone or anything that does not honor these attributes, has gotta go.
-
You understand?
