In one of Nipsey's most grittiest songs, he lays out his entire philosophy on pressure, which shows how he was able to accomplish so much in so little time. Listen as I highlight these bars, and show tribute to one of the greats. #BARS
We all want to accomplish our ultimate goals. Action is a prerequisite. However, some of you are too afraid to move before you feel you are ready. This can't be you. You gotta move despite the fear. Listen as I explain practically how to make moves before you are ready and I explain Killer Instinct V to those who want to take their game and life to the next level.
Most of your peers are victims....and you most likely are, too. Being a "victim" means you act helpless to change your circumstances, and life bullies you into submission everyday. In this episode, I go into depth on why this is, how to know what type of victim you are, and most importantly... how to transform into a boss.
It's 2019... You're able to fly just about anywhere in the world for less than a pair of sneakers, your phone recognizes your face, and you can start a business in 10 minutes on the internet... Yet people still like to limit themselves and what they can do. It's disgusting, so I decided to share with you a mindset that can change all that. #UpOnGame
Jay-Z is arguably the GOAT in Hip Hop, and in this track "NYMP" from his Vol. 3 album, he shows why. This is a bar that one would normally brush over, but it hit me particularly hard. Jay breaks down the importance of knowing yourself, and how to move in alignment with your essence. #BARS
You can have all the tools in the world, and be as prepared as you want to be....but if you're afraid to claim what's yours when it's time, it won't matter. The yellow tape mentality is a complete feeling of worthiness, ownership, and ruthlessness, that causes the best to go for even more. Lack of this causes a lot of very talented and skilled performers to never make anything real happen. Listen to this final episode in the bloodline series to find out how to weave all of these qualities and traits into your mindset and take results to new levels.
It's simple. You have to find a way to be calm and poised under pressure... when the bullets are firing... but how? In this episode of the "Bloodline" series, I break down this necessary mindset.
This ancient stoic philosopher has a take on "Control", but I am not sure I totally agree... Do you? Take a listen to this section from Seneca's book, and see if this philosophy aligns with yours.

It's rare to find someone who recklessly pursues what they deserve, with a blatant disregard for the opinions of others. Most are plagued with worry, doubt and overthinking. This cannot be you and I. We must become more and more fearless in our approach. In this episode I break down this bloodline.
I am no relationship Doctor, which is why whenever I struggle, I am always looking to find answers from people with expertise. I came across this author from a friend, and since then, his books have literally saved my marriage. Check out which author I am talking about, and which books he wrote, in today's #UpOnGame episode.
Persistence is to success what salt is to food...it's essential. Without it, you can almost guarantee failure. In this episode, I highlight a Jay-Z bar that shows the importance of Persistence and the mindset you need in order to keep going and bounce back like a champion. #BooksandBARS
Humans naturally default to extreme laziness....none of us are exempt. But the best find a way to fight this off, and replace it with an uncompromising focus on the right details...It's what I like to call "precision", and it is crucial.
To be the level of "dominant" that you claim to want to be, it's going to require a level of control that most softies are not comfortable with. Listen as I break down what "Control" really means, and how you will implement this.
In an unpredictable world, it's a no-brainer to keep your most important files safe. Take it from a former firefighter, and get you a fireproof folder. #UpOnGame
In today's episode of Books & Bars, I break down John Eliot's book "Overachievement", and why you should focus less on goal-setting, and more on the BIG PICTURE.

It's so easy to quit...isn't it? And if you haven't quit yet, then you're most likely wallowing in a state of indecision, and anticipating failure. Now, your failure becomes a matter of "when" instead of "if". We have to move in the opposite direction. Machine-Like Persistence is an unwillingness to stop. We just keep going.
While everyone else waits for the right time, deliberating over what must be done.....true competitors move with a sense of urgency, and create pressure before life does it for them. This quality is a prerequisite for getting to the top.
We all come face-to-face with anxiety and stress, and most people turn to bad vices to comfort themselves... how do YOU handle it? I'm putting you #UpOnGame today with a healthy option for anyone out there with snacking habits like mine.
All the motivation and strategy in the world cannot help someone without discipline....this is the ability to follow through with what must be done, regardless of the pain or inconvenience. It's uncommon to most, which is why you will be so rare if you have this.
I'd like to take a moment to remember a legend who was taken from us last week... Nipsey Hussle. A true staple in the rap game, whose goals reached far beyond the realm of music. Nipsey was such a huge inspiration to me and my business, it's only right to share three lessons (among many) that I learned from him. #RIPNipseyHussle
Songs featured: "10 Toes", "Faith", "That's How I Knew"
Having low energy and a lack of motivation towards your goals is not a good sign, and is certainly not a standard for high performers….So we must find a way to keep and maintain a solid and persistent feeling of motivation and excitement towards what we want. In this episode, I show you how I do that, and it's super simple. #UpOnGame
