Where has Sean been? Does he still know anything?
Good Questions! And they deserve heck of good answers!
I first want to thank you for reading this! And I want to share with you that aside from letting you know a few things that have happened over the last 4 to 10 months of my life, I want you to also read what I have learned and what Sean Knows that will help you and help us move along this journey of life in a so much more spectacular way than ever before. If you aren’t looking for spectacular, then we can get you to an okay place and we will work our way up from there.
It seems like I fell off the face of the earth with this blog, but if you are friends with me on Facebook, Follow me on Twitter, talk to me on the phone or see me in real life, then you know full and well that I did not fall off the face of the earth but am standing, running, and jumping with my two very own legs that God gave me! We can say that my focus shifted from the blog and spilled onto many other projects that will benefit more people and help me get where I am going much faster!
I last left you with a blog about The Moment of Truth and how that moment is every moment of your life. It is true. Every moment is an opportunity to make a decision in life. Does this sound too esoteric for you? Too Hoytee-toytee? Maybe it does, but think about it. Everything in life is a decision. We have the chance to change things. Some are easier than others. Some make us face our fears while others just make us choose what we want to put in our mouth…but in that moment, we have to make a decision, and it is a moment of truth. It is a truth that says who you are in that moment in time. So whether you go sky-diving to conquer a fear of heights or not, that says who you are at that time. If you decide to eat that second chocolate bar or the whole first one in the first place, that says who you are at that moment. It’s a culmination of previous decisions and yet it is the beginning of a new world. Each thing we do creates a new world and we are always in control of it.
Since March of 2010 of I have made some of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’m still OVERJOYED at the results. I decided to attend Anthony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within Weekend in Long Beach California. Life HAS never been the same again. If I look at back over the last 10 months, I did a slew of things that I would never have decided to do. This includes but is not limited to: walking on fire (twice), running a 5k, focusing on my health by way of eliminating terrible habits (and creating new, powerful ones), stepping into leadership roles like never before, being an active captain of community in my hometown, start a couple of new businesses, and most importantly of all, I decided to never compromise for being less than I can possibly be no matter how scary it may seem, to love more than ever before, and to never, ever, ever give up no matter how tough it gets. And believe me brothers and sisters, I am as human as the next person so there have been some big challenges.
The difference is now that I’ve begun mastering the tools of change and of champions so that I can keep life moving in the direction that I want it to and not where it might go if I’m not in control. I’m incorporating all of the things that I was trained to do since I was a young man, and FINALLY started putting it all together. I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest teachers and mentors of success and love on the planet. I had the unique path that put me in direct contact with ideas, methods, and activities that make life all that it is supposed to be. It isn’t a matter of luck that makes us happy and successful. It’s a matter of knowing what to do and how to do it. Sure timing may play a factor but if you still aren’t ready, then what good is timing anyway. Remember the acronym for L.U.C.K.? Labor Under Correct Knowledge. These are the things that I learned and had the chance to be around for the last 15 years. I’d forgotten it all. Well…not all of it. Even I said it didn’t work, but that was my decision…it was my excuse. But ‘no more’ is what happened last year.
These are the things I share with you. This is what I want to do. I want to share the things I know, to share my connections with you so that you, too, can learn to be, do, and experience the things in life that YOU want or to get rid of the things that you don’t want. There are specific things that you can do that will get you there. There are books, people, activities, ideas, and websites that can help you with those changes. That’s all I’m going to share about that for now. 😉
