This picture is a spitting image of what I’ve been doing for 50+ hours a week for over 7 years. Yea I’ll go out, have fun, take time for my hobbies and live my life but my primary focus and attention has been here, on my laptop, grinding away, doing my best day in and day out to achieve my goals ✔️
This last month I’ve been recovering from a neck injury, been facing a ton of major struggles in my businesses and life just hasn’t gone my way. I haven’t been myself, couldn’t workout, couldn’t stand for more then 30 min without feeling sick, less motivated, extremely anxious, depressed, you name it. The reason I’m sharing this is because I know a lot of people struggle with getting out of a rut. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and that too many bad things are hitting you all at once and then you lose your momentum. That happens to all of us at some point. And it just happened to me. It’s okay to have a bad day, a bad week and in my case a bad month. Just don’t let it hold you back for too long. Don’t sulk in the negative going on and constantly fight to get yourself back to where you were. Don’t sit back and accept defeat. Ever! If this is relevant to any of you hopefully this helps. The things that got me back on track were . Focus on the good things you still have, and make a list of reminders on your phone of how much better you still have it then 90% of the world. It keeps you grateful . Actively search for solutions not excuses . Whether you believe in god or not just get in touch in some way with your spiritual side and have faith that there will be a positive that comes out of anything your going through. In my experience that’s always been the case . Learn Psychology - whenever your feeling down when you read on how your brain works you feel more empowered that your minds just playing tricks on you and that you can control it to be happy . Surround yourself with amazing people like I did in this photo : )
7 years ago I started a brand out of my room. I remember I was still living at home in a small room and had 8 boxes on the floor that held all of my inventory. Having a warehouse and industrial racks was the dream and I had so far to go to achieve it! Today, it’s a different brand then I started 7 years ago but the dream remained the same and now I have it! It’s amazing what you can do if you just stick with something and never give up! 🙌
Cheers to everyone! I love the new year, it’s a time you focus on everything you want out of life and in the world we live in today there are endless possibilities. So make sure you take advantage and appreciate everything we have access to and kill it in 2019. I know I will! Happy New Years 🙌
Being an entrepreneur teaches you to be a great long term problem solver. Throwing an EVENT teaches you to be an instinctive problem solver. Probably one of the most challenging and fulfilling days of my life. A day I’ll always remember. A day that I couldn’t have gotten through without my TEAM. Thank you to everyone that came out and supported it meant so much seeing how much love the brand gets. For our first show the turnout was amazing. Couldn’t be happier and more motivated for our next one 🙌 #tunedintokyo
I’m happy to announce my company @tunedintokyo_ is giving away our first car. I remember a few years ago when I could barely afford to even have my little beater Honda and now I have the opportunity to give a fully built car away to someone and help change their life. I couldn’t be more excited for this next phase in my company.
Hangover 4 premieres early 2018 starring @dbrad_13 @_duhmvrio3 @_garrettvaldez and I
For those of you that know about cars I don't need to say nothing else.. but for those of you that don't -------------------------------------------------The #rx7 is a legend and, in my opinion, is in the top 3 most iconic Japanese cars ever to be made. This is one of those cars I will hold onto forever. I have so many plans for the build of this car and it's going to be a 1-2 year process but can't wait to show you all the final result. With 20k already under the hood and a lot more time and money I plan to drop into the car.. it's going to be even more of a monster then it already is --------------------------------------------------- If anyone wants to keep up with the project watch my company @tunedintokyo_ YouTube page we started recently.
When your busy as f*ck and can't find a model for your brand 🤣 @tunedintokyo_
