Apply the process I’ve used to change my life.

We can’t help but change and evolve. It’s the nature of evolution.

When I was younger, I feared change. I desperately tried to stay the same person because I had a fixed mindset full of fear. Little did I realize that change is not only inevitable, but it’s a sign of growth.

Change is the only constant in the universe. Even if we try to stay the same, time will do its thing on us. We are continually morphing and evolving.

Since we are going to change, we might as well focus on what direction we change in and who…


What to prepare for to achieve success.

Entrepreneurship is mostly a lie.

It has this aura of fame, lambos, parties, and freedom. Influencers flaunt private jets, weekends in Vegas, models, and a selfie with Gary Vaynerchuk to show how awesome it is. But very few show what goes on behind the scenes and what it takes to build a business. While everyone is happy to show off their wins, few are as eager to showcase their losses.

I wish someone had told me how difficult the journey to building a business online was and what it takes to achieve our goals.

Luckily for you, I’ve had plenty…


And what you can learn from his success.

If you don’t know about Dwayne Johnson, then you’ve been living under a “rock.” Sorry, I had to.

The most followed man in America has a larger social media audience than most countries’ population.

At the time of writing this, The Rock has 225 million followers on Instagram. That’s more than the population of Brazil. Fun fact: There are only five countries that have a population larger than DJ’s audience.

I think it’s safe to say that Dwayne Johnson truly is “The People’s Champ.”

It might seem as if everything he does eventually turns to gold, but that wasn’t always…


Apply these principles for growing into your best self.

We all desire happiness and freedom.

It’s the core component that drives why we seek abundance in health, wealth, fulfilling relationships, and prosperity. Yet, you will never achieve it unless your head is in the right place, with beliefs that serve you instead of harming you.

I wish I had known these lessons and applied them sooner. So, I intend to deliver wisdom to those serious about leveling up and progressing to the best version of themselves.

Time is depreciating, so let’s dive in.

Your Only Competition Is You

If you’re focused on competing with others, you’ve lost.

Look at some of the top companies…

Depression sucks. I’ve struggled with it my whole life.

It’s an energy sinkhole that drains the life out of you and can leave you feeling depleted whether you got out of bed that day or not.

The pandemic has triggered the mental health issues of millions. People are struggling. For some, every day right now is a fight to stay above water. Thankfully, mental health is being taken seriously now and is a part of society’s conversation.

Here are six reminders that have helped me through these crazy times.

#1. You Are Not Alone

For the longest time, mental health had a stigma and was…

I’m a big believer in keeping things simple.

Life, as we know, can be complicated and annoying. At times, downright frustrating. That’s putting it mildly after the last year too. So, when we can, it’s essential to live with the KISS principle in mind.

The United States Navy created the KISS principle. It’s an acronym, which stands for “Keep It Simple, Stupid.

When it comes to progress, let’s keep things simple and not complicate them any further.

If You Don’t Go After Your Dreams, You Will Never Have Them

What you want is possible.

However, no one will hand it to you, and it won’t fall out of the sky and into…


What I learned from Shaolin monks.

“Repetition is the mother of skill.” -Tony Robbins

One of the martial arts I trained in was Tai Chi Mantis. It’s a style of Shaolin Kung Fu.

My favorite place to train was in Toronto, Canada, at Golden Harmony Kung Fu under the instruction of Sifu Rupert Harvey. I thought lifting was hard, and then I did this.

I learned about chi, body alignment, locks and holds, proper breathing, and breath control, as well as hundreds of ways to kick someone’s ass. I love this style and am so grateful to have been introduced to it.

Sifu is a sage…


Change your thoughts to change your life.

We have all heard the phrase “Success leaves clues.” When you begin to study the successful, you start to see similar themes, habits, and behaviors.

They wake up early, work out, reading is paramount in their schedules, their morning routines start the night before, etc.

Not all of them have the same methods, but one characteristic seems to pop up more than the others.

Their Outlook on Their Abilities

I’ve noticed from studying successful people that they speak to themselves differently from the majority of society.

In my own life, I would often let my doubts run my self-dialogue. …


Know your enemy so you can win the war.

We all have dreams. Whether it’s buying a home or becoming a movie star, our dreams call to us to make them a reality.

However, most people give up and succumb to the enemies that cause them to surrender.

According to science, 92% of people don’t achieve their goals. To ensure our victory in this uphill fight, we have to educate ourselves on why we might surrender.

As Sun Tzu brilliantly stated:

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every…


Become obsessed with the details.

Good is the enemy of great.

If you desire to become extraordinary, then you have to level up. Basic actions and work ethic lead to basic results. You will never become exceptional if you constantly have average behaviors and habits.

Do you want to improve? Do you want to be great? Then you better start paying attention to the details.

It’s All About the Details

“There is no magic in magic; it’s all in the details.”

-Walt Disney

When we work out, proper form is critical. …
