Take Control of Your Life


Hey all,

Apologies for the lack of new updates. It’s been a hectic month.

There are a bunch of articles I have ready to be published but I don’t know if they are strong enough or have enough detail yet. Tomorrow we should have a new one and hopefully two more this week.

But what I just realized is it’s OCTOBER and there are only 3 more months in the year. For many December is a wash month because it’s the holidays and people don’t do much when it gets cold and what not. So really there are only two more months before the end of the year.

You can either finish strong and try to accomplish all the things you set out to do on January 1, 2014 or you let another year come and pass and try again in 2015. It doesn’t matter to me what you decide to do. But I don’t think there’s any reason to wait.

Go strong, go hard, finish off the year right. 

If you need extra motivation, just imagine these next 3 months are the last 3 of your life. Then balls out and do everything you are afraid to do or are waiting to do because you aren’t ready.

The truth is you never know when your time will come and you can’t do what you want to do any more.

  • Each day you let pass is another day you get older.
  • Each day you let pass is a day you can’t get back.
  • Each day you let pass is a day less of good health and endless opportunities.

I want to introduce you to a guy named Luke who I went to business school with. Luke is a young 30ish something professional. Or at least he was. For 32 year’s this guy ate whatever he wanted to eat, smiled 24 hours a day and just pursued his dreams. He ended up moving to Japan to work at Groupon – doing the start-up life.

A few months ago he got sick. And he didn’t get better. So he went to the hospital to get checked out. He was no longer able to function. Tired all the time. Not hungry. No energy.

Turns out Luke has kidney failure at the age of 32-33 and he’ll end up dying if he doesn’t get a new kidney soon. Out of nowhere this perfectly healthy human being is now stuck in a hospital bed hoping his kidneys recover. His kidneys currently function at 7% and he’s raising money to come back to the states to get a kidney transplant (if he even can).

I don’t tell you this story to ask you to donate to Luke. I don’t tell you this story so you feel sorry for Luke (he doesn’t even feel sorry for himself). I tell you because I want you to realize all your potential can be taken away from you in an instance, whether you like it or not. So stop waiting.

2014 is still your year. Go get it.

Be Alpha. And I’ll talk to you all soon.

    Thanks for keeping it real and giving this reminder man! I never really think about the year progressing after the first month of a new year and usually just forget all of my resolutions.

    Just this simple reminder was like a slap in the face that there’s so much I wanted to do this year. I just booked a flight to go to Ireland to see where my family grew up. Something Ive been meaning to do for a long time. I hope this is a start to something bigger.

    I’m looking forward to your updates lol. You’re really helping guys like me out.
