A Lesson Only BROKE Can Teach…(1 min read)

broke-monopoly-guyWhen you have nothing left financially or when you’re starting from the bottom, what you DO HAVE is very obvious.  In the midst of crisis, you don’t have time to focus on what you can’t do.  If you were standing next to someone who suddenly started to suffer a massive heart attack would you:

A.  Call for help, “Does anyone know CPR?!”

B.  Call for, “Who doesn’t know CPR, so I can eventually find someone who does?!”

I’m going to assume we all would say A!  That is the core of  self-awareness: Knowing your strengths.  Tough times are the best teachers.  Get in a habit of responding to tough situations with strength.  Be a first RESPONDER not a first REACTOR.  Use the struggle as mental conditioning to develop your emotional IQ.  Wealth does not eradicate crisis.  Don’t think that when you get to the top, you’ll have the time to be “a nice guy” or a “patient person.”  Who you are in the pit is who you will be on the top.

When I say BROKE, I mean it figuratively.  It can mean out of money, out of encouragement, and so on.  At some point in our lives we all feel BROKE.  And that my friends can be the start of your self-awareness journey.  Mahalo for reading.  You know how it goes, let get connected.

Call for Back-Up!…(1 min read)

If you get knocked down, you get back up again, right?  If it were that easy, most people would do it.  I say, getting back-up makes getting back up a whole lot easier.  We live in a time where we can access any information with our fingertips from a smart phone.  People ask their FaceBook friends for parenting tips.  My daughter teachers herself math on Khan Academy.

My point is, the back-up we need is out there, we just need to search for it.  Chances are someone has been through a similar struggle as you and has talked about it on some on-line platform.  Today, it’s not about “who’s the smartest,” it’s about ” who’s the most resourceful.”  Comment below, email me your questions.  My goal is to back YOU up & bring YOU content that is relevant, that will save you time.  Aloha my friends!
