This right here, as a father, says a lot to me.
Everyone is influencing someone.
Wether is on social media or in the real world.
When someone visits your page, or has a conversation with you, do they leave better or worse?
Personally my whole mission in life is to get to a position where I can make a positive impact and help change people’s lives.
I haven’t been as active, but I’ve been busy bettering myself and my situation.
But I’m planning, tweaking, and honing in the skills needed to accomplish the things I plan to accomplish.
When all goes well, I plan to bring everyone on a journey with me. As long as you’re willing to make the leap.
We all want to achieve, and achieve greatly, in whatever our endeavors are. Great achievements are not sprints, but marathons. Like a marathon, winning or even completion, is only possible with persistent work.
This is sort of the end goal; today with social media, you can essentially build a loyal following and build a business from it with little to no risk and little to no money put in .... Build a following, post cool stuff, and later on have cool products of your own or of others that people get value from and enjoy buying or subscribing to... And then at that point, it’s still not really like a traditional business, but more just like having a large group of friends and followers who support you, and are on a similar journey to you.
Back in the day people had to be able to massively sell first and often raise money or put capital in first (and they couldn’t as easily just build the following or the audience or the customers first and then go on to make, produce, and later sell the product). It’s way easier to get started today with all of this, and its little to no risk, it’s fun, and anyone can do it I think... 🧠👌💵

It’s interesting how we tend to pay more for the brand name💰😛

I highly, highly believe in this. Everything in our world today has been born out of innovation, out of doing something different from what was already there, different from the status quo. Think different! And the real answers really truly are where most people aren’t looking!😎‼️🔥

Patience is one of the most underrated virtues. It’s the one who is calm, patient and waits for his time to come who gets to enjoy the fruits of his labor. Build towards your goals but not too aggressively; when it was a race between the tortoise and the hare, the tortoise took its time but the tortoise won.
One step in front of the other often GUARANTEES that you’ll cross the finish line; instead of having something go wrong because you were doing things too quickly or too aggressively.🐇🐢💵

It’s good and important to pause and appreciate how far you’ve come once in a while. And take some days easier than others.. it’s not about doing as much as possible on one day but more about being consistent over many days at what you do.👌💰🔥

You would be able to jump into situations you would typically feel are scary or difficult/uncomfortable if you could instead think of them as opportunities for something really awesome or fun or cool or amazing to happen.
This is why some people have pretty exciting and adventurous or seemingly awesome or interesting lives and some people don’t; amongst other reasons, it’s being able to take little risks and bets that might be fun and pay off/improve your life in all kinds of different ways.🦁💰👌

Compound interest is one of the most important principles in every area of life, that we are just not taught in school and most people never learn, know, or find out about. Compound interest simply means you gain interest or accelerating, extra returns on whatever good habits you are implementing (and in large part by how early you start). It is a numbers way of looking at what happens when you start doing more habits right and get momentum going. Interest can happen like this in the positive or the negative direction; keep that in mind.💰😎

The most important, precious, and scarce resource of all is simply time.
When you have money or great relationships or great physical health or whichever else or other great things, you can reach or arrive at abundance of each of those at some point.
But time, you never get more of and everyone has the same amount. The more that I progress on my journey, and the more I learn and grow, I begin to see that time becomes the ultimate limiting factor for most people and most things.
You can achieve anything but not everything because you have to choose, because time is limited ... and further: the time we may or may not have in our own lives is unknown. So it’s best to make the most of the time we have in front of us, while we can.⏱😬

It may be a bumpy road and an unpredictable path, but it’ll be the first and it’ll be your OWN. 👊😎🔥

I post a lot more pictures of my food than my training simply because I don’t train that much. 3 days a week.. maybe 4 tops; I enjoy training and wish I could a lot more... but, as I learned from the above from @stanefferding : if I want to be a responsible athlete or a responsible lifter, then I should put my energies where they will be most effective.. that means making the most gains from training less and focusing most on eating optimally and sleeping optimally. Eat your veggies kids 😎😏🍅

Some times life is about just creating what you want to create (for other people or even for yourself). It maybe be done bad, or wrong, or differently but maybe that’s just how you wanted to build or create it or do it, and that’s ok.
You just create what you want to create anyway; and see where it leads and where it takes you overall.
Create something beautiful one small piece at a time.. and create it in your own way.

A lot of the time I question whether I’m doing the right things at all in the gym or in life. But then I remember that the number one thing is simply consistency.. and that if I’m consistent, I’ll be much further ahead a year or more from now than I am today. 👍

On the flight to Venice, I was listening to a podcast by @aubreymarcus where he interviews @paul.selig. It was an incredible podcast (I actually listened to it twice 😂 I’ll post the link to it in my story!) but one part really stood out to me.
“You can’t be the light and put another in darkness. What you put in darkness calls you right there to it. Only the one that sings the high note, can lift other things to the resonance of that sound.
Do you understand this?
At the high notes vibration there is a claiming that lifts the lower to it.
You will not lift the atrocity, the battlefield, the hatred, the prejudice, the famine, the war, and the greed, by climbing into the mire of it and attacking it with a knife. You will not find your way out.
Do you understand?”
This gave me CHILLS because it’s so true!! Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can.
Fighting the people or things in your life that hurt you, will only bring about more unhappiness.
What do you damn, damns you back. What you bless, blesses you back.
Instead of seeing things through the eyes of fear or anger, try seeing them with love and gratitude.
Try engaging with them the way you did when things were positive, and watch how this mindset shift can change the situation! 💖
Also... HOW ADORABLE IS THIS HOTEL?! I’m actually obsessed with every single room that I got to explore. Thank you for the amazing hospitality @hoteldanieli 😍😍😍
Venice was toooo good to me!! 🥂🍝🧀🍷 I can’t wait to go back!
