Discovery Through Failure

 

Every failure is a test to see how much you truly believe in your vision. Reframe failure to be a discovery process and watch how you begin to become more compassionate with yourself. Positive energy surrounds us when we let go of the fear of failure.

FAITH (Edition 139)

One of the hardest things in life is to build faith. When I say faith I mean the complete trust in a person or idea. This is easy in theory, but in reality this is extremely difficult.

Things can go wrong. Emotions can flare up. Your faith will be tested. The real question is how do you continue to have faith after things have fallen apart?

My personal experience has taught me that every dark door I have been through has led to an even brighter light. My faith is that if you live with good energy then good energy will eventually come back to you.

The future is an illusion. All that exists is this moment and the faith you have to carry you through it.

INTENTION

 

Edition 138

ABOUT INTENTION (138) At the heart of every action we take is desire. What drives that desire can be split into two energy sources: expectation or intention.

Expectation is the hard path. What we expect others to do or say and what we expect from ourselves is always a painful struggle. Even if we reach this expectation there is always a longing for something more.

Intention is the path I recently started to travel down and has been the most rewarding. By letting go of our assumptions for the future we can embrace who we truly are in the present moment.

EQUALITY

 

Edition 137

We are all born into this world as pure love. Then things change. Choices must be made and through our choices society teaches us that two cannot be equal. One must be better than the other one.

My question is why can’t two be equal? All beings walk the same earth and breathe the same air. We all have unique strengths and weaknesses. We all are going to suffer the same fate at the end of our lives.

It is my desire for all beings be happy and free… but equality feels like a dream that can never truly be achieved.

As you look at this edition, think about these two questions:
1) Is equality possible?
2) If so, how can we create it in our daily lives?

GRATITUDE

 

Edition 136

I chose to take a different path. One that was taken before, but isn’t easy to find. You can get lost easily and there will be many creatures waiting in the darkness… But I just had to do it… I had to walk this path. And the more I walk down this path looking for the abundant light at the end of it, the more I become aware as to how I am already the abundant light which illuminates the darkness.

EGO

 

Edition 134

We have on average about 70,000 thoughts per day... that's roughly one each second! This constant flow of energy in the mind will never stop, but instead can be directed towards either the positive or the negative.

Ego is a person's sense of self-esteem and self-importance. It is a natural tendency for the ego to present ourselves as we want to be... instead of as we actually are.

To resolve this, I humbly remove my inflation of ego to find the inner core of the soul that carries each heartbeat forward. Lately I have been meeting my dreams with the true reality of what I am doing to fulfill them. When you give the ego a taste of humble pie, it becomes more authentic over the long term.

I have found through my journey that my ego will never go away. However, what I can do is build a positive and honest relationship with the thoughts I think. To give myself compassion and understanding for every step I take. I wish the same for you.

WORTHY

 

Edition 133

I want to talk about something that I have really been noticing over the last few hundred people that I have been teaching how to rock balance…

There has been an overlying theme that most people really doubt themselves and don’t see themselves as worthy. Worthy of love, worthy of following their ideas, or worthy of simply having a voice.

Through the power of technology I have also seen this so many times when people will engage with my work online and I can see the doubt even in the way they write their words.

If you are looking at this Edition I just want to tell you that YOU ARE WORTHY. All of your previous failures have led you to this moment and what you do with this moment is entirely up to you. You can either continue to tell yourself “I can’t” or you can start telling yourself “I can” and start to really see that beautiful gift that is already inside of you.

I know this sounds like motivational bullshit but this really isn’t. This is something that I have seen thousands of times… when the spark in someone’s eye ignites because I got them to easily balance a rock in the most difficult way possible.

All of my imperfections are what makes me perfect - just like you. I hope that if you ever want to come out to San Francisco I can show you how to do this in person (link in profile). However, if you’re on the other side of the world I hop that I can be a catalyst for you to truly believe that YOU ARE WORTHY.

HUMBLE

 

Edition 132

As soon as I truly accept my shortcomings I can then take that first step to grow past them. I’m a firm believer that all of my greatest victories have been built from the rubble of my failures.

As much as I wish that I could live forever, the humble truth is that each day could be my last. Just as my life was instantly given to me it can be instantly taken away.

I find I am happiest when I can simply take a breath and enjoy the incredible gift of being alive.

We’re taught that the pursuit of material wealth and “perfection” leads to the greatest source of happiness… but this is completely false. The greatest source of wealth is actually love, connection, and acceptance.

This is why I try my best each day to do everything in my power to make others smile. I understand that not everyone will accept me… but I accept myself and with every step will continue to open my heart to the world. I encourage you to do the same and wish you a lifetime of humble happiness.

HEART

EDITION 130

I thank god for every heartbeat I have. For every breath I take. For every opportunity I have to make someone else smile.

Even the stormiest days will never stop my heart from carrying me forward. I know that my heart will always lead me to sunshine and help me to unlock my full potential.

There is 100% of my heart behind everything I do. Because if you’re gonna do something, why not put your whole heart into it? ❤️

ATTENTION

It’s very simple: whatever we put our attention on will grow. Still reading? Let’s go.

The odds that you are alive and also are reading these words are so incredibly rare that I don’t think it’s a coincidence you are reading them right now. Your attention is the most valuable thing in the world and I am very grateful that it has brought you here right now.

It can be hard to put your attention on what we really want when there are many outside forces demanding our attention at once. Here’s an example, an email inbox that no matter how many times reaches inbox 0 just never quite seems to stay empty? Every single morning I face this battle too.


We hang out in this reactionary state many hours a day because you have to do so in order to survive - no matter what century you live in. But it doesn’t have to be 24/7. It is possible to know exactly what you want, have the full desire to succeed, and the courage to move beyond previous failures. This photo is proof of that.

If the attention is towards the negative, you are simply feeding that. 

If the attention is towards the positive, you are simply feeding that. 

 

The question becomes, which side will you feed?

 

In my personal experience the more I put my attention towards the good things in life the better my life feels. Trust me, I still have bad days where nothing seems to go right, but I know that because my outlook is always positive no matter the outcome, things will always be alright. I’ll still be able to get back up after I fall.

Consistent positive attention is one of the hardest things to master, but it is also one of the most rewarding.


The next time you feel negative attention pulling you away and all of a sudden you’re Darth Vader reigning anger throughout the cosmos here’s a little trick I use to flip back to becoming Skywalker... 

 

Take 3 deep breaths and think about 1 good thing that is happening in your life in this moment. Wait, did you just read these words? or did you actually take 3 nice…. deep… breaths! I can definitely think of one awesome thing happening to you right now… if you can read this you still have your life - now go do some powerful things with it :)



MOTION

Everything in the universe is in a constant state of motion…

The more we resist motion the greater our struggle will be. The more we embrace motion the greater our reward will be. 

The key is to find the balance of exactly the right pace to make your dreams a reality… this pace constantly changes - but the motion is always there.

Move too slowly and someone else will overtake you. Move too quickly and you’ll burn yourself out.

However, the secret isn’t black and white. It’s not about choosing between the turtle or the rabbit… it’s about choosing both at the same time. So how do you do that? By adjusting… by learning… by growing from every experience.

When you discover how to properly go with the flow in and adjust to each new moment… your greatness becomes unlocked.
