No excuses, just CHOICES

Yes or YES?

I don’t believe in excuses being anything other than a choice.

We all have a choice, no matter what. That choice is perspective.

We can make excuses as to why we can’t live the life we desire and affirm it to be true, therefore live in that truth.

Or, we can shift our perspective to seeing the world differently and finding a way to manifest the life we desire.

It’s not easy but it’s quite simple and my life is a great example of perspective shifts added to the mental and physical sense of action aligned with the desire.

Want something in your life?

Step 1: create the desire in your mind.

Step 2) stop telling yourself the bullshit excuse as to why you can’t when others just like you, and sometimes worse off than you, are doing that very thing you’re telling yourself isn’t possible.

3) develop a routine of positive subconscious programming whether that’s affirmations, meditation, or the content you choice to consume. Either way, make sure the energy and words are uplifting and serving your desire and purpose. What we feed our minds leads to the action we take and manifest our reality, either for or against our desires.

4) take ACTION and be relentless when it comes to perseverance and making it happen. Had I not had this step implemented for my BMX career, I wouldn’t have won a content, wouldn’t have made it to the most elite level of competition, and wouldn’t have started riding again after injuries or brain surgery.

5) build and maintain the belief in yourself despite whatever noise out there saying otherwise. If I can succeed with my goals, anyone can. *self awareness comes in play huge here because I’m not saying if your my height that you’ll be in the NBA or that if you’re terrible at singing that you’ll be the next Aretha Franklin. I’m saying follow your heart, out the work in (physically and mentally), beat the odds, and never give up on what you truly desire and believe is possible for YOU.

Just START

Best piece of advice I’ve heard and share….just START!

You don’t have to be the best out of the gate.

You don’t have to run before you can walk.

You don’t have to backflip before you can clear the jump.

You don’t have to speak to large crowds before you can speak in front of the mirror.

You don’t have to write the whole book before you write a chapter.

And, you don’t have to crush heavy weight in the gym before you can make a habit of just going on regular walks during the week and doing some body weight exercises.

STOP overanalyzing your goals.

STOP thinking you need to learn more.

STOP thinking you need to go faster.

STOP thinking you can’t.

STOP thinking you need others to start.

STOP believing the bullshit story you and others have told yourself why you can’t when in fact, YOU CAN.

If I can, YOU can. Just start by believing you want it bad enough to do something about it and can in fact do it!

Then take action and don’t give up!

I get asked “what’s the secret to your success” often and there’s no secret. Starts with a desire, faith in that desire being obtainable, a plan, action and figuring out more along the way.

Read “Think & Grow Rich”, “The Power Of I Am and the Law Of Attraction” or “You Are A Badass” and it’ll make more sense.

Action to Manifestation

Who’s taking action that’s aligned with their desires?

Of all the things I’ve been learning over the years, taking action is THE most important piece to manifesting the results you’re looking for in your life.

You can always learn more as you go but I find a ton of people, and I was one of them, are crippled by analysis paralysis.

Our ego, or deep rooted subconscious mind, cripples us into becoming addicted to learning, training programs, etc. in an effort to “know enough” before starting.

Don’t get me wrong, those are very important aspects of manifesting a result but without a detailed action plan and implementation of that plan, education doesn’t matter.

Ever hear “knowledge is power”? It’s not, unless put into action. Same with a talent. If you’re always practicing a talent in private, and want to be known, how can you ever expect to “make it” unless someone sees you?

Don’t be afraid to be seen, accomplish your goals and live your dreams.

Eyes Forward

Thank you to anyone who was for or against me.

Either way, in support of me or against me, it ultimately led me to where I am today & all I’m doing with my life & for others & I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve fallen in love with the journey while setting new goals every day & keeping my sights always exploring what possibilities there are for my life & my desire I’ve been creating in my mind.

@brianundy & I chatted about this concept of “where your eyes & head go, the rest of your body will follow” concept we have in BMX in regards to learning how to 360 in the beginning.

We were racing exotic cars out here in Vegas yesterday & the driver coaching us in the passenger seat would have to remind us all to stop looking so close in front of ourselves & look forward to where we wanted to go.

Great example of our goals & not getting stuck looking right at where we are but looking forward to what’s next & our new goals.

I talk about this mindset BMX and my hard working family instilled in me at a young age to always pursue what’s next in my life helping me overcome any hardship whether it’s fear, injuries, “failures” or “disease”. That same mindset has allowed me to get to where I am today and build the belief YOU can accomplish whatever you can see in your mind with the belief and persistence to not give up.

Failure only happens when you give up. Giving up doesn’t always mean you stopped pursuing a goal, sometimes it means being self aware enough to change course for the bigger picture / goal for your life and find another route.

This is all to say we have so much support along the way whether we can see it or not. Even the people that didn’t directly support us may have inspired us one way or another.

To be around @brianundy @ryanplowery Terry @magicmaleah @h_kingsbury and the whole @justpruvit family has been amazing and I couldn’t be more grateful for all I’m learning and experiencing.

There’s no such thing as self made and if you’ve read Think & Grow Rich, you understand this.

Consistency is Success

Have you started towards a goal and found yourself going down multiple paths that don’t really get you any closer to your goal?

I have found as excited I got in the past to learn and try new things, every step away from the original strategy takes us out of alignment.

I’m not saying stay stagnant and in one box, I’m saying I’ve found most success in regards to accomplishing a goal when I stay the course and add the new ideas, concepts and plans to the list to try after some time.

For example, if we’re trying to remove body fat and start on a plan and switch to another plan even 4-6 weeks in, we don’t give it enough time to truly manifest and then get discouraged when we bounce around from plan to plan.

Even with BMX, we can’t try a new trick a handful of times and then move on to another one and expect either to get dialed in a short amount of time if we don’t stay consistent with the process. Once we get the new trick or plan dialed, and see results, we can then add to the plan or just stay the course longer and get it more dialed.

Far too often do we as a society want quick results and miss the long game approach. We’re playing chess here people, not checkers.

We don’t want a success to fizzle out, we want that success to be our new reality long term.

What’s Mine Is Mine

Following my recent post regarding attempting to “tear others down” to make yourself feel better.

How we treat others is a direct reflection of who we are on the inside in the moment.

I’ve witnessed this over and over again and have had to audit who I was and how I was treating others over the years due to my own negativity I was fostering within myself.

A great thing to focus on is “what’s mine is mine and what’s theirs is theirs” meaning, if you are causing no harm and someone’s sharing negativity back, that’s their bullshit. Not yours.

Being confident enough in our own actions and walking our truth is key to not letting others affect how we feel. Because, when we have an emotional state it leads us to taking action one way or another.

If we are in a negative emotional state, guess what, we’re probably not going to take the action we’re proud of.

You can see with that how others may treat us, or try to, treat us poorly and how it’s on them, not us.

We’re not responsible for how others want to lead their life or their emotional states. We’re only responsible for our emotions and actions.

Own your shit and step into your power.

Off The Bike Thoughts

Will I last until October before I ride again?

Although I intended to wait until October, I’m thinking that isn’t quite what I want to do.

Luckily, I have a ton of trips coming up to occupy me and keep me off my bike further but August has me thinking, haha.

I had a great chat with @createdbybrian today about my decision either way and what’s really “walking my talk” in regards to fearing lack of commitment with what I set out to do.

I’m still fulfilling my purpose, I’m still being 100% authentic and transparent, and I’m doing what’s in my best interest.

Although I have zero desire to compete, I still love the feeling of what I’m able to do on my bike.

That ability is something I’m grateful for and brings up another reason why this topic of ability means a lot to me because some out there can’t use their limb(s), maybe lacks a limb in general, or didn’t wake up today.

Beyond living with brain tumors, I’m alive, healthy, strong, and fully able to ride my bike the way I desire.

Would you like to see me ride again?

Gratitude= Key To Abundance

Comment “yes” if you agree.

No matter what your belief is in which gave you life, how can you expect more if you’re not grateful for the life you have now and all that’s in it?

It’s not about being happy about the “bad” or having to be perfect. It’s not about ignoring that things happen that we don’t always want.

It’s about perspective and fostering a perspective of gratitude to be a living human being with an opportunity to manifest the life you envision for yourself.

It’s about being grateful to feel emotions of all kinds and to have the ability to breath.

No matter what you’re going through, 2 things:

1) someone has it worse.

2) shit could always be worse.

If you’re reading this right now, YOU won and have the ability to make your tomorrow better.

Shoot, you have the ability to make your immediate presence better NOW.

Rather than waiting for “this or that” to make you “happy”, choose to be happy now because YOU literally have all the control to do so. Nothing and no one else.

Once you take accountability for your life, accept your power and CHOOSE to own your life, you’ll see massive shifts occur.

It’s all a choice. Choice the life you want. Don’t let life happy to you.

Allow life to happen FOR you.

Your Personality = Your Personal Reality

“Your personality creates your personal reality” Dr Joe Dispenza

Think about that for a second.

Everything we do, think, feel, etc. create the reality we live in.

The first step is awareness followed by a new desire.

The challenge? Change and our subconscious mind (ego) trying to keep us “safe” when in reality it’s just a perceived stress of leaving behind our old identity.

I’ve been here and hard.

My desires outweighed the resistance to change and is why my life is designed the way it is.

From my financial freedom to my travels. From my health to my “free time” as others call it. Form my relationships to opportunities. It’s all a choice.

This choice starts in our minds and manifests with a belief.

The reason we don’t do the mental and physical work on a daily basis Is because we don’t believe in it.

Otherwise, tell me WHY YOU don’t have your goals written down, don’t read them allowed daily, don’t eat well, don’t exercise, don’t chase your dreams, and so on.

PLEASE, tell me. I’ll wait.

I was there before. Making excuses so I could play small in life and feed my addiction of emotional dependency in regards to my chemistry.

Remember, when we think any way it’s creating a hormonal, chemical, and physical change in our bodies. To change any of that is a perceived stress.

It’s not easy to change. Hence why so many in our country are overweight, stressed, unhappy, and broke.

I can attest to all of those listed right above as I was there and am not anymore. It takes a lot of work but hearing “it must be nice” from others is true.

It’s fucking nice and I worked my ass for it. I’m not “lucky”, you’re just not willing to do the damn work.

I left home when I was 17 to pursue an unconventional dream with not even a $1,000 in my bank. Lived out of a closet in my friends apartment, had major injuries, battled depression, was overweight, was diagnosed 3 times with a brain tumor, almost proposed to a crazy woman who lied to me about who she was and found out she willingly committed adultery with my married firmed 2 times, lost my mentor and brother to suicide, and the list goes on.

I’m now doing better than ever with a purpose to serve and support others in showing them the potential they have for their life when they just give it a damn effort and believe in what’s possible.

Why’s your excuse for why you’re NOT happy in all areas of your life and saying “it must be nice” to others while you sit on the bench playing SMALL in life?

Love you all!

Brain Health Is Wealth

Wealth starts in the brain.

Wealth consists of what we feed our brains: food, beverage, sleep, content consumption (social media, news, entertainment, etc.), desires, thoughts, beliefs, self-talk, exercise, mindfulness, perspectives, and so on.

Literally, every choice we make affects our brain.

If we want success, health, wealth, love and abundance within all of these areas, we have to begin by loving ourselves and that means loving our brains!

What do you do daily to love your brain?
