When Flaws = Divinity.

Rules of Success is on hiatus for a few more weeks, but I made this video message as a thought that came after watching the parade to celebrate the NBA Championship of the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers. The narrative is that your flaws are what make you divine. Give it a clip to see what I mean!

The 9 Things I Learned About Being an Entrepreneur from Breaking Bad.

Walter WhiteOne of the best things that has happened to me in the past few years is that I’ve devoted a large amount of time and effort to self development. In so doing, I have found myself learning from all sorts of experts, spanning many different fields and industries.

My choice to build a better mousetrap (read: better myself) was to learn from perspectives that weren’t my own. By considering a different vantage point to my life, the theory was that it would open my mind to a heightened level of understanding. It would illuminate blind spots and give context to things I previously did not understand. That new context and understanding that would not just promote change, but it would require it.

Each expert that I’ve met, read or interviewed as a part of my podcast “Rules of Success” has their individual take on how to live our best lives. The smart ones add the caveat that it has to be on our own terms if we are ever going to adopt new or improved behaviors that stick.

We have to first acknowledge that we want change and then tap into the pain of what it would mean to stay the same.

What’s Your Voice Saying?

SiaTonight was the first night in a while where I created space enough to listen to new music. I don’t listen to music in the way a lot of people do; mindlessly in the background as a soundtrack.

I enjoy it that way; sure..  But I specifically find time so that I can let the music be heard.

There is such much that we miss as we hear a tune on the radio that sometimes I make it so it’s just me, my Beats headphones and Apple Music.

Tonight was one of those nights. So, I made a date with Sia. I had yet to listen to her new album even though I had heard her song Alive..

I teed up the first track.

It’s called Bird Set Free.

It surprised me to find myself feeling an emotional response to the song is a very powerful way. Right out of the gate!

“I Wish My Mom Would Just Quit Trip’n!”

Quit Tripn Logo

I usually don’t have direct cross over from my Rules of Success website to my personal blog. The only times I do is when I feel a very personal, emotional response to a message or a specific guest of my show.

This week is one of those times.

This week’s episode of Rules of Success is Founder of Quit Trip’; David Kozlowski. 

A few weeks ago a friend of the show; Brandon Cash told me about this teen outreach program he was a part of called “Quit Trip’n.” He shared that it was unlike anything he’d ever seen in the ‘space’ of teenage health and suicide prevention. They don’t even call themselves a suicide prevention community; it’s more of a “safe environment for teens to have a place where they are able to share their stress and personal struggles.”

Anyway, that conversation lead to Brandon introducing me to the Founder of Quit Trip’n; David Kozlowski.

Over the course of several days, David and I.. Continue Reading
