Once you start reading a lot, accomplishing more, and experience higher levels of success, a new danger arises... you begin to think you know it all. Arrogance floods your judgement, and you begin to ignore the fundamentals that got you where you are.
One of those fundamentals is consistency: the ability to show up, day in and day out, regardless of the circumstances. In this episode, I share a clip from the book "3 Feet From Gold" by Sharon Lechter, where she helps illustrate the power of this fundamental within powerful clarity. #Bars
When you are in the infant stages of your vision, there is a certain aggressiveness that must be present. You have to be able to bully your way into the game, and exhibit a brash confidence that is uncommon. In this track "Ground Zero", Juelz Santana points this out. However, there is also a patience that comes into play, knowing that you are not going to settle. This is the challenge. Harlem rapper Juelz lays out his philosophy, and I dig deeper. #BARS

Reading, learning and consuming new information is important. You've heard me talk about the game-changing effect that books have had on my growth and success, and I am confident the same is for you. However, with the increasing ease and convenience of learning, we now have a new problem. "Am I reading too much?" "Am I taking enough action?" "Is the balance good enough?" "How do I balance the learning with the doing?"
In today's episode, I share my philosophy on learning, and how to balance it with the necessary actions towards real progress.
If you want to accomplish real results at the highest of levels, there is a reality you must embrace. This reality, is your complex and misunderstood motivations. It matters not what your motivations are; what’s crucial is that you know what your motivations are.
In this episode, I share a clip from one of my favorite books of all time written by, Maxim magazine founder and multi-millionaire, Felix Dennis. He speaks with clarity and his wisdom is rooted in reality….enjoy. #Bars
Too often I see aspiring and ambitious high performers who claim to want to be the best, but do not commit to mastering the game like the greats.
Do not be fooled; the ones you admire don’t just talk. What distinguishes them is their commitment to mastery, and in this classic Lil Wayne track, he illustrates this point beautifully. #Bars
Most people are soft. They lack courage, and hesitate to ask for (yet alone, demand) what they want.
I do not wish that for you. I want you to be more savage and ruthless towards life, and create a reputation and standard for yourself that says “I know who I am and what I want. I get what I want from life, and I refuse to be stopped.” In order to create that mindset and standard of action, you must work at it. Humans will default towards cowering under pressure unless held to a rigid code of ethics. In this episode, I break down 4 game-changing habits that will lead to a more savage and ruthless attitude and mindset.
I bet you’re used to looking for ways to improve, holding yourself to a high standard. Or maybe you take a step further, and beat yourself up mentally when you make mistakes or live in constant anxiety due to your desire and need to win.
No matter how extreme your drive is, the challenge that comes with being a “killa” is that balance...finding ways to feel good and validated, without it leading to complacency. Today is another episode of “Killa Mode”, a form of aggressive, active meditation that primes you for absolute Killa mode.

In this day and age, it is difficult to make choices about what products to use for your hair, skin and body. Not only are there a million brands to choose from, all of them claiming to be the best, there are far too many brands that use ingredients that harm you and actually create more problems than they solve.
I recently came across a line of body care products that has me daily rejuvenated, smelling and feeling fresh, and has me getting compliments daily from my lady. In this episode, I put you up on game….Four Kings Only, a line of body care products that is all natural and made for men.

The emotion of anger is often misunderstood. Most run from anger, in fear of alienating people, or doing something they regret. Instead, they opt to “fake” positivity, or sulk in sadness and helplessness.
What Malcolm X suggests, is to channel the anger into constructive action. It is within your power to use anger to generate the personal power to create results... however, this remains up to you. In this episode I break down a clip from a classic Malcolm X speech where he illustrates the practical use of anger and how to use it to win your own revolution.

Michael Jordan once said about Kobe Braynt “He’s just as cursed as I am.” The curse MJ was talking about was the constant desire to dominate, win and improve, at virtually any cost.
You’ve decided what you want, and you are afflicted with the same desire to win, dominate, and master your craft. The problem that comes up is the incessant feeling that you are not doing enough. You’re not making progress fast enough. Things could be better.
What do you do with this feeling? How can you feel like a success every day, instead of constantly feeling like you're losing? In this episode, I break it down.
(1:22) Preface to today's episode
(4:44) Step 1: Embrace the fact that you are competitive
(5:49) Step 2: Define success at every level
(12:03) Step 3: Accumulate control-wins
(15:56) Step 4: Create feedback loops
Are you a coach or teacher? Are you an “influencer”? Do you have kids? Do you value helping others to get results? If so, you and I have that in common.
In my quest to be world-class at what I do, I have read hundreds of books… and not all of them were created equal. In this episode, I break down 9 of the most impactful books that have helped me become a better coach. I also breakdown what it takes to be a world-class coach, and my system for how to continuously improve.
Once you decide to channel your ambition towards real results, now you have a challenge... How do you track your progress? How do you organize all of these goals? How are you going to manage all of these thighs without getting overwhelmed? How can you ensure that you follow-through, and remain accountable?
I have tested and tried a lot of apps for this purpose, and I have yet to find one as practical and powerful as the "Ambition App".

People who are comfortable being the ”victim”, love to use their adversity and pain as a reason to complain, underachieve, and avoid reality. In this powerful new song from NBA star, rap artist, and Oakland native, Dame Lillard aka "Dame D.O.L.L.A.", he shows us how to use your pain as a badge of honor instead of a liability. #BARS
