It’s my 28th birthday today.

While I’m not really one to celebrate birthdays quite honestly, I’ve used this time to reflect on 28 lessons I’ve learned in the past year.
  • Mindset is everything.
    • Law of attraction. Vibration theory. Learn it. Apply it. Maximize life.
  • Get your body in shape.
    • I’ve been in the process of eating healthier, shedding weight, and feeling all around better. The energy I feel, sleep, and over all health has never been better. Also helps to have people that want you to be the best you possible.
  • Teach people to fish.
    • Helping people kick off their dreams has been one of my favorite experiences this year. Sometimes all you need is to give them a little push and believe in them sometimes more than they believe in themselves.
  • Hiking the Grand Canyon down and back in one day was probably not the best idea.
    • But definitely would do it again.
  • Driving a tank was not originally on my bucket list.
    • But once I did it, it was definitely added and scratched off.
  • Find friends that push you to be a better you.
    • And do the same for them.
  • A mother’s intuition is extremely powerful.
    • She always seems to call when I need her the most.
  • Being an Uncle for the first time is the coolest experience ever.
    • He’s also the coolest little guy ever.
  • Good coffee is essential to life.
    • Same goes for wine.
  • Let food be thy medicine.
    • Tried a plant based diet temporarily during the vegan craze. Wasn’t for me but definitely opened my eyes to my diet. And my continued love for steak.
  • Kobe beef will change your life.
    • And forever ruin all future steaks.
  • Legacy
    • What will people remember you for when you’re gone? Make a difference, no matter how big or small.
  • Realize your worth and what you bring to the table.
    • If they don’t appreciate, walk away.
  • Intermittent Fasting.
    • Buy this book, you won’t regret it. Lose weight, increase focus and health.
  • Trust the process.
  • Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.
    • Learn to elevate your game to accomplish your goals.
  • Dont ever say you don’t have time.
    • If it were truly important to you, you wouldn’t eat or sleep till you took care of it.
  • Once you know, you’re good.
    • Once you know you know, you’re dangerous.
  • “What is this going to do for me in 5 years.”
    • Apply that as a filter, and you will become much more judicious with your time.
  • You can always have more than what you currently have because you can always become more than what you currently are.
  • Success takes sacrifice.
    • They call it the 1% for a reason.
  • Increase your groups of friends of people that challenge you.
    • You can’t talk power moves and life goals around people who don’t have the same hunger as you, it’ll sound like you’re bragging.
  • Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.
  • You’re living in a question.
    • The more questions you have of yourself, the more you’ll know about yourself. You’ll keep growing.
  • Vision without action is a day dream.
    • Action without vision is a nightmare.
  • The average person spends less than 1% of their time improving themselves.
    • Don’t be average.
  • Don’t try to go through life alone.
    • Leverage other people and their experiences to shortcut your growth. I’ve tried to do it alone before. My growth went 10x faster when I brought in other people to help.
  • Everyone needs a hype man.
    • They come in clutch in the best and worst moments of your life.

Thank you to everyone I got to create memories with in my 27th year. I hope to continue to share many more with everyone. If we haven’t seen each other in a while, let’s catch up.
