If I asked you to name an intelligent historical figure, you might say Tesla, maybe Edison, but most of us think of Einstein.
Albert Einstein is the poster child of genius.
Sure, maybe you think of a bagel ... hahah... but just the word EINSTEIN brings feelings of education, intelligence, brilliance, genius.
But is that true?
Was he more mentally capable than other people?
Was he that naturally gifted over others, or was the key to his success his de
We all know that we should not live life being controlled by the judgement of others, however, that is MUCH EASIER SAID THAN DONE.
No matter how much I know I shouldn’t pay attention to the thoughts and opinions of others based on how they judge me, it still happens.
I am working to become less and less concerned with the opinions of others about myself and my life and my status...and today I read something that really stood out to me.

I was at the gym today working out, doing an exercise I’ve done for years, and the weight I was using wasn’t that much heavier than when I used to lift with my homie back in 2008.
That realization hit me in a strange way today.
I HAVE HIT A PLATEAU.
What got me to this level isn’t what I need to take me to the next level.
I consistently go to the gym, yet I do the same things. I am NOT pushing myself.
I am getting the results that my actions and consistency create.
IT’S TIME TO START LOVING OURSELVES.
If I asked you, “Do you love yourself?”, of course the obvious answer is yes, but is that the truth?
Do our actions and mindset represent the actions and mindset of someone that truly loves and believes in themselves?
Someone asked me: “How do you celebrate Phil?” It made me extremely uncomfortable to think about and I quickly realized that I don’t.
In fact, I have identified areas of my life where I actually don’t support myself and
WHERE DOES INTEGRITY FIT ON A RESUME?
LinkedIn is looking more like a social media platform these days and not just a digital place for your resume to live.
In spending more time on there, you notice there are:
So many job titles.
So many educations levels.
So many different institutions of higher learning.
Quite often emphasis gets placed on what degree someone received and where they went to college. But are those alone good indicators of performance or work ethic?
I walked out to my Jeep this weekend, and there was a business card on my driver’s side window.
I grabbed the card, it read: “We Buy Junk Cars,” and then I threw it away. I love my car. I have no insecurity attached to my car. I don’t judge myself about my car. The act of that man putting a business card on my car didn’t negatively affect me because there was no preexisting insecurity attached to the situation.
Now if this same situation happened with my old car, I would f

Happy Birthday to my amazing parents!!!
Both of them were born December 8th.
How crazy is that?
I am so grateful that I am blessed with such wonderful parents and there is no doubt that I wouldn’t be anywhere close to the man I am today if it weren’t for their example, love, and support.
Andi, You are the most caring, faithful, and thoughtful person I have every met.
You always go the extra step to make sure that
New Year’s Resolutions are normally made the week of NYE.
It’s no wonder that most resolutions fail because we didn’t actually put any time into planning for it. We said we would stop smoking. We said we would hit the gym. We said we would start reading books. We said we would ________ fill in the blank. It’s not surprising that we quit since we never really built a plan for. If we want lasting change, we need more than a couple of days to lay out a year long plan for how we
