Pursuing BETTER

No words will do this feeling justice beyond euphoria and gratitude.

I’ve never felt the same emotions since competing other than before, during, and after I step on stage to share my TRUTH with 1,000’s of people.

The energy from a Prüvit event, the love and support from this amazing community, and the atmosphere of the Louisville Palace is incredible.

I’ve only been speaking for about a year now and to have spoken in front of such an amazing audience in a historical and iconic theater blows my mind and I’m incredibly fortunate to have this opportunity to speak in such a venue to such a crowd.

As I stepped on stage and looked at all the amazing humans challenging BETTER for our society, I felt at home. As I looked up into the second level balcony, I took a breath and allowed all the love and gratitude in as I felt more belief in my purpose to empower people to be BETTER and realize their potential in life as soon as they choose to step into it.

I couldn’t be more grateful for Brian Underwood (Prüvit CEO) trusting me to share with his community and to have the opportunity to experience such an amazing time with Brian Guilmette Prüvit and PrüvitNation.

Thank you all for the love Prüvit, thank you to those who’ve ever given me fuel by saying I couldn’t be successful or that I wasn’t good enough, and thank you for whoever read this all the way through.

My top HACK for BETTER in my life is to become as conscious as possible in such a way that we can audit our personality (our thoughts, actions, and emotions) to see how aligned we are with our desires….and drink Prüvit exogenous ketones!

Hacking BETTER

Excited to speak at the “Louisville Palace” theater for “HACKING BETTER” hosted by Prüvit.

I’m excited to share my gratitude for such an amazing and supportive community challenging the current status of brain health and optimization.

To me, Hacking Better simply means to optimize. But, in order to optimize, we must become conscious of the way we think, act and feel. This trio is a set of behavior patterns known as our personality, which is what creates our personal REALITY.

I will be speaking about this sense of consciousness a bit more, as it’s what I’m super passionate about today, and how it’s shown up in various ways to help me in my life along with a ketogenic lifestyle.

After overcoming 3 brain tumor diagnosis, and living with 4 tumors in my skull today, I’m become very aware of my life and how I show up.

The more I audit who I am and how my personality influences my alignment with my life vision, the more clarity and abundance I find.

I can’t help but share all that helps me with others as I want everyone to be as healthy, happy and successful as possible.

I suffered for a while on my journey to empowering myself as a byproduct of having to react to my life being threatened. I don’t believe it takes such an experience to shift our perspective and that’s why I share my story.

I believe we can work SMARTER and be PROACTIVE rather than wait for a wake up call like I experienced to be initiated to be on PURPOSE and optimize my life reality.

Is Keto hard or is it hard to break your food addictions?

I cringe when people say “keto is hard” or “I can’t follow keto because____”.

It’s not hard and anyone who wants to create the best version of themselves can apply the fundamentals of a ketogenic diet if I and countless others who travel, are busy, or had past food/sugar addictions can.

If someone’s willing to change their mindset and stop making excuses to hide behind, any type of change is possible.

It’s not that “keto is hard”, the reality is that the person saying this may have food/sugar addictions they’re not addressing, isn’t educated on the topic, or is being held back from emotions of fear.

This was the case for me when addressing my lifestyle and really beginning to audit my choices.

Then a brain tumor almost killed me in 2010 but thankfully I experienced this because that’s what got me to get over my excuses and fight/change for my life.

It was that emotion of fear for my life tied to that experience that led me on the path I’m on today and has helped me stay persistent and consistent while dropping the excuses to play small.

My biggest struggle with my life purpose today is helping others overcome their past selves and their excuses.

Not everyone has a wake up call as I had to fuel their fire of change.

That’s why a WHY or a purpose is so critical for all of us. Vanity purposes, in my opinion, are not complete. There’s always a deeper rooted motive to look good and it comes down to our past and the emotional baggage that we’ve brought into our adults years.

Creating a future version of ourself, mentally and physically, I find leads others to change for their better when becoming conscious to this level of thinking.

It’s not guaranteed that tomorrow will come, yet so many of us believe it will. I was one of those thinkers before I learned the hard way.

It’s my mission to get people proactive about their future to be as healthy, happy and successful as possible.

Are you being defined by your vision for the future or the past experiences you’ve had?

Do You REALLY Want To Win?

Who’s guilty of being salty and jealous of others wins and successes?

This is a subconscious fear of “lack” in our lives when we think this way.

That scarcity mindset and fear mentality is what leads us to feeling jealous of others successes and often times leads to throwing shade their way.

When we’re living in this environment, our brain doesn’t know the difference between what we want and what we currently feel.

That said, lowering your energy to that of jealousy and hate surrounding “success”, even if it’s others, tells our subconscious mind that we don’t like success and don’t believe we can achieve success in whatever area we are focused on.

If we truly were happy of others winning, we’d achieve an elevated state of consciousness and signal our brain in different ways to release chemicals in another form that leads to positive and uplifting feelings and emotions.

These higher levels of emotions tells our brain that the thought of winning or success is good and we should act in a manner to create this feeling.

When we relate success or winning with lower levels of energy, we tell our brian that winning and success is negative and therefore, our subconscious avoids the things we must do in order to create this success and win in our lives.

Perspective & NeuroChemicals

Perspective is all it takes to see the truth in this.

Think about this statement for a minute….gratitude is the key to abundance.

If we live with the perspective of “lack”, then we will feel and believe we have lack. If we develop a perspective of gratitude, we feel gratitude.

That’s how our subconscious mind works. It doesn’t decide what’s “good” or “bad”, or what we like and don’t like.

It can’t tell the difference from perceived or reality and with that, it triggers the release of chemicals in our body according to the thought that entered the mind.

These chemicals are addicting and are what lead to our actions.

Those actions bring on an experience, and that experience creates a story and emotion embedded into our brains that triggers the chemical cycle all over again with that action every time.

So if we think in lack and then take actions throughout the day that don’t serve us and our goals, we create this feeling linked to this thought over and over again.

We literally live as our past self and create our past as our future.

How do you think working every day to foster a perspective of gratitude would allow you to change your life?

If you felt a higher vibration of energy, would you be more inclined to act different and make new choices?

Would this “different” version of yourself and new choices being on new feelings, ultimately bringing you closer to the reality you desire?

I have found the answer to be YES.

No matter what we believe in (religion, spirituality, energy, etc.), how can we expect that source that gave us life to give us more of what we want if we’re not grateful for what we have right now?

The key to happiness and success is to feel what that desired outcome may feel like now.

This allows us to act, think and believe in ourselves and goals, ultimately manifesting what we focus our minds in and give energy to.

Community & Keto

Community is essential to health, happiness, and success.

To not feel alone, to be able to share goals and life visions, have accountability, and to share the experiences along the journey with others is everything to me.

With that said, Keto is NOT hard!

It’s a choice and it’s a choice backed with a purpose. “I travel too much” is an excuse. “My family is from_______” is an excuse.

Be honest with yourself as to what the real cause of you not having discipline in your life is rather than make excuses.

I hear the excuses all the time and it really pisses me off. Some don’t have a choice in the way they must eat to fight disease or improve their brain health from damage.

There’s no difference in the choice other than motivation and purpose.

I find that having people in your corner that will challenge you to be the best you can be, grow with you, and not judge you is crucial.

That’s why I give so much of myself to anyone that asks for help. I actually have been working on doing less of that to save time for other goals I am actively pursuing that will be able to help even more people.

The point I am trying to make is that no one becomes successful on their own. Someone either inspired, taught, or directly helped them one way or another.

Don’t think you’re alone because there’s always people here to support you.

Patience & Standards

I left BMX competition, working with BMX brands and performing in BMX shows in 2016 for MORE in my life.

I also turned down some sponsorship requests from soda and energy drink brands to keep my integrity rather than a quick financial gain.

I knew if I wanted a new reality on the level I desired, I had to make drastic choices and change how I was living my life.

In doing so, 2.5 years later, I manifested a dream partnership with @justpruvit.

I am not required to do anything I don’t want to or naturally don’t already do. This partnership supports my efforts to change lives and continue pursuing BETTER by just by being me.

No stress to compete, no stress to do things I don’t fully feel like doing, and no need to try and promote a brand I don’t believe in 100% for a paycheck to make ends meet.

I see too many athletes and influencers settling with partnerships they don’t fully believe in or enjoy, just for a short-term gain.

I used to have this scarcity mentality because I was struggling and needed to put food on my table and pay bills. I feel for those athletes with limiting beliefs holding them back but grinding for their passion.

Once I changed my mindset and developed standards for my life, that’s when these radical changes occurred. It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t quick, but it’s been so much fun learning and growing to the place I am now and continue to grow into. Safe to say….IT WAS WORTH IT.

I have manifested more opportunities to fulfill my purpose and my dreams, changed more lives, built a team helping support my purpose that I actually pay more than what I take home myself or have ever made personally (real entrepreneur status @kerwinrae), and continue to learn from amazing people within @justPruvit like @brianundy @ryanplowery and @theMusclePHD.

So much love to my amazing team @jciake and @CreatedBybrian, the @justPruvit team, those that have supported me every step of the way, and to those who have ever told me “no”, hated on me behind my back, or straight out dismissed me.

Because of all of you, I am living my life exactly how I want, will continue to do so, and continue to change more lives.

New Realities Require Drastic Change

Who Are You?

This quote works really well with this weeks Podcast. If you haven’t listened, check it out! The Grey Matters Podcast!

It’s ok to feel down, angry, sad, confused, lost, alone, and so on.

It’s not ok to judge others for how they respond to hardship in their lives.

We have to remember we are human and emotions come and go. It’s harder when a negative emotion arises from the death of a loved one.

When my younger brother passed last year, I was in a dark place questioning my own life. Asking myself things like “why does it matter if I live or die”? “Why should I bother doing anything anymore”? “Should I feel guilty about living my life and ever-smiling again”?

Being clear on our life vision and confident with our beliefs on life is key to not letting events affect how we feel, long term. Because when we experience an emotional state, it leads us to take action one way or another in our lives.

If we are in a negative emotional state, guess what, we’re probably not going to take the action we’re proud of. And, if we stay in this state long-term, that’s when life may not be how we imagine or want it to be.

Again, it’s ok to feel down immediately after a tragic event and there is no set time one must “get over it” even if others are saying so.

I am confident in knowing that those we love and lose wouldn’t want us to carry on feeling anything but the best we can and living our lives to the fullest in their honor.

I decided I was doing my brother an injustice to be depressed and waste the life I am fortunate enough to live. Instead, I bring his energy with me everywhere I go as I fulfill my purpose to help others.

Why Pruvit is the superior exogenous ketone on the market…

@justPruvit uses the exact isomer that the body naturally produces.

https://www.instagram.com/tv/B1tuYrcBnFo/?igshid=1lcasjl4p67lm

When you’re on a ketogenic diet and your body is producing ketones, it’s in the form of “r-BHB” (D form).

Every other supplement out there uses a mixture of D and L forms of BHB. Pruvit is the only supplement brand utilizing only the exact r-BHB isomer.

The “D” form of BHB is a biologically active form that the body can utilize as effectively and efficiently as possible compared to racemic forms of BHB.

Racemic forms of BHB are either non-biological forms of BHB or a mixture of some “D” form of BHB combined with mostly non-biologically active forms.

You use exogenous ketone supplements in the form of “salts” as ketones have to be bound to something and salts are a better platform for binding to BHB.

The Keto//UP from Pruvit happens to be the ONLY free-acid form of BHB coming in a canned beverage form rather than the salt form you mix with water.

The benefit of this liquid form is a quicker rise in blood ketone levels, which gives you quicker superior energy.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather have my hard-earned money go towards the real deal that my body has a real chance of uptaking into the cells and utilizing for energy and it’s other benefits to the brain and body.
