Hello, Friends!

Why am I creating this site? It’s a fair question: BE PLAY HAVE squarely in my mind as the way of life that has eluded me for nearly three decades. I have never really understood the undercurrent of our “Being.”

My order has always been DO HAVE BE. If I do the work, then I can have the experiences and the toys that come from the hustle. As I finished 2016 strong, nearly missing the 6 figure mark for the second time in a row, I’ve begun to question this order. Through many different mentors and experiences that I jumped all in with over the past year, It’s come to my attention that I have this equation backward.

The BEING always has come first and always does. Through the 100 different goal programs and the exercises, I’ve been learning to set intentions in the hopes of creating the life that I imagine. And by using the principles of the law of attraction there has been one slight error in how I operate, and that’s in forgetting/bypassing the part of the equation that jumpstarts the journey. The visualization/knowing that the experience or thing that we want to attract to us already exists in us and we can choose to feel it or “vibrate” on the same frequency and bring that “thing” to us.

For me, I’ve always been “about” money. If I could find a way to earn money, I’d “have it all.” The error in this thinking is that life is a journey. Through my good friend Matty A’s mentorship, and his uber successful podcast the Millionaire Mindcast he has shared that Goals are a living and breathing mechanism. They are just the direction that we use to set our sails for our life. It’s something that I had stubbornly chosen to ignore in my journey.

I continually thought that earning an amount of money is somehow going to be “the end” or create that fulfillment in my life experience. The truth is this journey continues. Each day is a new experience and a chance to share your highest good and learn how to serve in a new and different way. For me a big part my experience has improved by joining up with a group we call M1 : March to a Million. A tribe of folks who are also on the “Whole Life” path and learn to work on themselves from the inside out. To create experiences and business as well as families and lives that are of an “epic” experience.

Develop Standards

Develop the standards of life that you live. This idea comes from Tony Robbins on self-mastery, (the link to the video will be at the end), which for me is an ever-present lesson on raising my life’s enjoyment. Learning to operate my life from a set of standards is something that isn’t taught nor is it encouraged or supported in our daily hustle. I believe it’s one of the most difficult tasks to begin. Epic Rituals deals with our life habits, which unless we’re able, to be honest with ourselves and be nonjudgemental, learning how to change who we are and what we do becomes quite the chore.

Here are a few of mine in what I consider the most important areas:

Health: Eat clean 90% of the time. For me this is a Ketogenic way of eating, high fat low carb. I exercise 4-5 times per week. Gym or Running or DailyBurn Home workout.
Business: Meet 3 new people each week. Create 4-5 New Deals each month. Add 2 new investments to my portfolio each year.
Relationships: Self-love. Be a light to the world. Share my gold with every individual I come into contact with. Invite friends weekly to connect and bond. Make it to Chicago 4 times per year minimum to connect with family.
Adventures: Take one small adventure per month. Go on two big adventures 7-14 days each.
Contribution: Lead and mentor others in my office and donate to worthy causes/nonprofits 3-6 times per year. Donate to a cause for each transaction.

Develop Goals

Create¬†a list of goals. Narrow it down to the top 12 and focus on 2-3 per week. Look at the complete list and break down the necessary¬†steps/tasks each week to make sure that you’re taking action each day towards living the vision of your life. The goals should represent your vision.
