Special Blog: Arsenio’s Entrepreneurial Journey from 2016-Now

Ok, you guys wanted it, and here it is.

At the beginning of 2016, I started a podcast.  Keep in mind that my followers on Twitter were LOSER sex tourists and my online persona, up to that point, was not very good.  I constantly focused on the negative and the victimization of being a “black” teacher in Thailand.

Then came the man — also known as Napoleon Hill.  Who’s Napoleon Hill? Well, you’ll have to google him, but this man ended up teaching me everything that I either had lost, or was completely unaware of.  Those books became my podcasts in the beginning and that ended up pushing away the majority of those “losers” who followed me online.

Then came the Jack Canfield book, most notably — Principle #5: Believe In Yourself.  While reading this just before my trip to Vietnam, I was reduced to tears.  At that moment, there was a shift in my entire biochemistry, indicating that this victimhood no longer serves you.  Getting rid of it didn’t happen overnight, but this was the beginning.

Lisa Nichols’ Abundance now came next, along with a few others, including Tim Ferriss’ 4-Hour Work Week and a couple of others.  This was the beginning of the new me.

In 2017, I began to rebel.  Hell, it started a couple months before.  My work, which wasn’t suitable for me anymore, wasn’t fair in terms of work allocation.  Some teachers got more work based on pre-conceived notions that they were better than other teachers.  So, I told myself, even in early 2016, that I would start working outside to gain more notoriety and build a brand that I didn’t know I was building at the time.  One after another, projects after projects, and “NO! I DON’T WANT YOUR CLASS IN THE MORNING!” — after another.  This probably was my downfall at the company because I constantly denied work from them, leading to my ultimate plunge and being the “last in line” and the “dark little brother,” however, this was the beginning of my new life.

In October of 2017, I got removed from teaching at Toshiba in Pathumthani, citing me for the most outrageous comments imaginable that were completely untrue and irrelevant to my moving.  Somebody had a bone to pick, and with two other white teachers, one having an insane amount of complaints, I was the odd one out (in a very unprofessional way).  That following weekend, it was the comment “if you want to continue working here we need to have a meeting” that sent shivers of disgust, threats, and “Arsenio, it’s time to get the hell out of here” down my back.  That moment, I made up in my mind that I was too good for these folks.

No one knew, but after learning that I had moved to the other side of town, they knew what was happening.  I cancelled, didn’t want class, and want to be away from that place as much as possible because it gave me chest pains — literally.

At the same time, I was grinding and trying to find work.  There were people saying “oh, this company decided this teacher over you because you’re white” and other deplorable comments. I knew I would scrape the bottom-of-the-barrel in regards to finding suitable language centers, but i kept at it.

Then March came.  Job offers came over the next two months along with entrepreneurs, a content writer, and hundreds of other things.

At the beginning of the year, I made goals list.  I made goals list for each category of my wheel of life, pin-pointing things that I wanted to do and how I wanted to grow.  To this date, I’ve not only achieved those marks, but I think in some categories, like the social circle and personal development, I’m two years ahead.

I have a content writer, social circle consisting of graphic designers, mentors, marketing execs and coaches, double podcasts website that’s sky-rocketing, YouTube that’s climbing, messages and comments saying thank you.

In all of that, do you think this could’ve happened if I didn’t leave that old place of work? No way.  I needed to leave there to create flow of goodness and change in my life.

See, the majority of the time, you guys get stuffed up in the now and personal wants.  You’re control by the mainstream media, dying relationships, loser friends, terrible jobs.  However, if you can just come to the awareness that if you let these things go, you will attract to you everything in life that you need to take you to the next level.

That’s a promise.

Upon the magnificent New Years, I’m literally positioning myself as the top ESL podcaster on the planet.  I’m owning hashtags on Instagram.  I’m teaching people all over the world and people want my services.  See how that works? And this all came because I dumped an employer in F.E.A.R of not getting a new job.

Face FEAR.

Questions & Answers: How to Jab & When to Right Hook

So, this is a special request from one of my friends who’s originally from Hanoi but living in Bangkok, Thailand.

What I love about this request was she asked me about the rest of the video.  No one has asked me about the rest of my 1-minute fire video before, so I told her that I would make a podcast specially catered to her and everyone else.

Gary Vee’s Philosophy: Jab, jab, jab, right hook.

This equates to give, give, give, ask.  Gary Vee puts an insane amount of content out there and asks people to share it from time-to-time.  No one else really does that because after sales and promising a marketed Instagram video, they tell you to “click the link” for free resources and it always comes down to paying.

This is called right hook/upper-cut. 

You can’t ask for rewards after not doing a god damn thing because that will breed entitlement.  You’re not doing it out of the good nature of your soul, instead you’re doing it for financial gain.  You will absolutely lose if that happens.

How do I do it?

Ok, you guys are probably wondering how a man that has so many blogs, podcasts, etc on his website make money from it? I don’t.  Right now is the relationships building stage.  These are the jabs galore. I want to show everyone, from top to bottom, who I am.  This is especially crucial because if no one knows you and you post an ad on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook asking them to BUY YOUR COURSE, that’s a ridiculous haymaker to throw at people don’t know you.  These people end up losing respect and posting ugly comments about your product because of it.  Remember, human beings are sensitive.

From my YouTube videos, to making my podcast, Facebook page, etc.  Nothing in terms of money has been made yet. That’s not my why.  My WHY is to make English LEARNING.  Period…don’t study it, learn it.  Live in it.  Watch my videos.  Laugh a little and tell your friends about the things I said to inspire them to learn it. I will become the coolest teacher on my planet.  Now, when the time comes, I will start putting webinars, newsletters, and create ebooks for courses, but all of that will come in the next year.  My main focus is attention.  Like Gary Vee said, “I’m day-trading attention.”

That Jack Canfield Story

Jack Canfield wrote about a guy named Tom.  Tom worked for a multinational company and was always sent on business trips in first class.  Being able to sit in the comfortable compartments away from everyone was the best for him — until he found out how much it costed.  He realized that he can bring his kids along, donate to charities and use that money in a more useful way.  Not only that, he realized that people in economy class were even more interesting than the first-class passengers.  He right hooked and hit a pot of gold when he found out he was doing more taking than giving, sitting in first-class.

Reject Rejection: Some Will, Some Won’t; So What – Someone’s Waiting!

I woke up this morning to a message on my LinkedIn.  A man, who invests heavily into Crypto and does a lot of blockchain, denied coming onto my podcast to talk about both topics (it’s very common for those to do so because they’re scared about ruining their reputation — including Forex Traders).

24 hours prior to that, a “spiritualist” who I’ve come across on my Instagram post told me, “oh, due to my bandwidth, I’ll have to decline your offer.”  I scratched my head and said, “huh? Well, ok!”

The point I’m trying to make here reverts back to Jack Canfield’s 18th principle: “Some Will, Some Won’t; So What – Someone’s Waiting!”

I’ve brought on millionaire authors, actresses and so many other unbelievable personalities who shared with my audience unbelievable knowledge.

Rule #1: Acknowledge what you’ve already done!

Sure, I don’t get many responses, but at least I got two that officially rejected me.  In the future, when I’m making it big, guess who will probably come back?  Just saying…this is what always happens.

“If you are going to be successful, you are going to need to learn how to deal with rejection.  Rejection is a natural part of life.  You get rejected when you aren’t picked for the team, don’t get the part in the play, don’t get elected, get denied, don’t get into the graduate school or college of your choice, don’t get the job or promotion you wanted, don’t get the sale, don’t get the raise you wanted, don’t get the appointment you requested, don’t get the date you asked for, don’t get the permission you requested, or you get fired.” – Jack Canfield.

However, rejection is simply a myth! It’s a concept you hold in your ear! Example, back in 2006, I asked a girl name Marja to the senior prom.  She said, “oh, I have an agreement with someone else — sorry!”  Was it a lie? Absolutely…but the simple fact is I wasn’t suppose to go with her to prom because it would’ve been cringing.  Instead, I went with a triplet couple and had a great time.

Just Say “Next!”

Colonel Harland Sanders left his home with his pressure cooker and his special recipe for cooking Southern fried chicken, he received 1,009 rejections before he found someone to believe in his dream.

Because he was rejected over a thousand times, there are now over 10k KFC’s in more than a hundred countries around the world.

“Don’t get stuck in your fear or resentment.  Move on to the next person.  It’s a numbers game.  Someone is waiting to say yes.”

Darren Hardy: Associations – Who’s Influencing You?

Who do you spend the most time with?

Honestly, ask yourself this question because within it lies the answer to all your sorrows.  Are you constantly around negative people? Do I have to bring this up AGAIN? You are who your closest five friends are.  Just do me a favor and drop one loser friend out of your life.  Ok, if you don’t want to expunge the human being because he’s been your friend all your life, just reduce the amount of time you talk to him/her for.  Go form speaking three times a day to him/her – to two times a day.  It will make a difference.

When I first moved to Bangkok, I had no idea that I developed a hell of an intuition for the 11 months I was in Las Vegas (after my Australia visa finished).  What happened was I had a friend.  This friend had a “bad” job….not even sure how I met her (she was a soapy massage girl).  When I met her for the second time ever, I saw the amount of bad energy she had.  The feeling of pain (agony), discontent, anger, and depression that was around her was unbearable.  I recall looking into her eyes at one point and I immediately looked away.  When I left to my main province in job in southeast Thailand, I never spoke to her again.

Later, I had a couple friends by the name of Mook and Ploy who were very nice individuals.  I realized then that I should probably be around nice people; rather than soapy massage girls (comical – I know).

Do you spend time around people who want more in life, or people who are considered “losers?”

Who are the people you most admire?

Ahhhh….the sound of Les Brown’s voice is amazing.  Many of you reading this blog probably admire your parents, your best friends, even the dog down the road.  By all means…we have different means of inspiration, but my parent (my mother…I don’t consider Willie my parent) fueled my inspiration in 2006 when she gave me all rights to my life.  Magnificent human being.  After that, I found my inspiration on YouTube in 2015 – the last year I constantly victimized myself.   Lisa Nichols, Les Brown, Tony Robbins, Tim Ferris, Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, and other books and videos disrupted my biochemistry and I began to believe in myself again – oh, most notably – Jack Canfield.

How about you? Do you admire sports stars? Or, do you admire historical figures of the past? 

Are those two groups of people exactly the same? 

They’re all the same in terms of inspiration and what they preach and teach about.

Eventually, over the course of x amount of months, whoever you spend time with most….you begin to eat what they eat, talk what they talk, walk how they walk, dress like they dress, treat people how they treat people, read what they read.  You name it…you become it.

Think of a friend who orders the greasy food or cocktails before dinner (although I love me some oven-baked chicken and long islands from time-to-time), and if you hang out with them enough, you’ll know that it’s a very ugly habit.  Just recently I met a girl who was saying, “I hate working out. It’s boring. It’s not fun.  I’m lazy…and I like being fat.”  Stay around someone like that long enough and you’ll become that person.  Meanwhile, your other friends order healthy food and talk about the inspiring books they’re reading and their ambitions in their businesses, and you begin to assimilate their behaviors and habits. You read and talk about what they talk about, you see the movies they’re excited about, and you go to the places they recommend.

This was one of the biggest deciding factors in leaving America permanently.  I knew if I had stuck around in my families sorrows, I too, would become part of their sorrows.  The 11 months from June 2012 – May 2013 were some of the most difficult months of my life.  The constant nagging, not having enough money comments, complaining about one’s boyfriend, bad-mouthing people from work….it wore me out.  Luckily, I purchased a pair of Bose Headphones, which was one of the smartest purchases I’ve ever made in my life, in Australia earlier in 2012.  Nonetheless, you can’t live a positive life around negative people.

So, ask yourself now: “what’s the combined average income, health, and attitudes of the people you spend the most time with?”

When I was in Australia last year, my ex-friend (yeah, my ex-friend) had become a nurse.  Her income was much more than mine, but it inspired me.  My best friend in New York makes more than me.  That also inspires me.  Those are, or were my closest friends.  I don’t have to worry about this because I’m around my students the majority of the time.  So after a long work day, I don’t go hang out with friends because I have to prepare everything for the next day.

However, you….the reader….you need to write down the names of those five people. Write down the main characteristics.  Look at where they’re going in life, the relationships they have with other people.  Is that list ok for you. Are you heading in the right direction?

Darren Hardy: Daily Rhythms & Registering Them + Relationships

Preston Smiles fits “fun-time” into his clients’ schedules.

What’s fun-time?

It’s simply when an alarm goes off, that particular individual drops everything he or she is doing and they dance their tail off.  I know, odd as hell, but the incorporation of that, or any other behavior, forms a discipline.

Remember I talked to you about Romanic Relationships and how spontaneity would go a long way in any relationship? Look at it this way…

Darren Hardy, at 6pm, has something called “date night” with his wife.  So when the time arrives, the alarms go off on his spouse and his phone, they drop everything, and they commit to being with each other from sundown — all the way to sunup.  This is from Friday night to Sunday morning, too.  Not just one day.

He also used an idea from Jack Canfield’s ‘Success Principles’ book, which he asks his wife, “how would you rate the relationship for this past week?” Of course the wife would give him a number, and he would then ask, “how can I get better?”  The wife will then come up with a list of things that will help him become better.

No one is perfect.  Just remember that.  It would be so overwhelming hearing nagging (which it shouldn’t be – but totally can be) all the time.  For example, when I was recently dating a girl, she wouldn’t ask me something like this; nor would I ask her the question.  Instead, on a two-hour trip back from Kanchanaburi to Bangkok, she was complaining her head off because I didn’t ask her if she wanted anything from 7-11, and because I didn’t carry all four pieces of luggage.

This should be a feeling of validation for both parties.

“Every month, Georgia and I also schedule something unique and memorable. Jim Rohn taught me that life is simply a collection of experiences; our goal should be to increase the frequency and the intensity of the good experiences. Once a month we try to do something that creates an experience that has some memorable intensity. It could be driving up to the mountains, going on an adventurous hike, driving up to Los Angeles to try a new fancy restaurant, going sailing in the bay—whatever. Something out of the ordinary that has a heightened experience and creates an indelible memory.”

“Once a quarter we plan a two- to three-day getaway. I like to do a quarterly review of all my goals and life patterns, and this is a great time to do a deeper check-in on how things are going in our relationship. Then we have our special travel vacation, plus our holiday traditions and our New Year’s hike and goal-setting ritual. You can see that once all this is scheduled, you no longer have to think about what you need to be doing. Everything happens naturally. We’ve created a rhythm that gives us momentum.” – Darren Hardy

Lewis Howes: The Material Mask & Tai Lopez Excerpt

YIKES! I mean, I can write probably a book on what Americans deem to be happiness – just go to Beverly Hills and see yourself! Yes, I took shot at Beverly Hills, although I stay there with an ex-boss of mine and his wife for a day this past April.  The Material Mask – the most highly sought after mask on the face of the planet.

From Instagrammer influencers posing with six-figure cars, to people flaunting their riches on yachts.  I find it very laughable because deep down inside those individuals are insecurities far beyond what “normal” people have.

For example, the YouTube guru who took the world by storm over a two-year period, Tai Lopez, is deemed as a “scam” artist.  Some people say that he packaged his own course from Jack Canfield’s ‘Success Principles.”  Others dissected his videos to the molecular level when they realized that some of the people he would be in the video with, at the time, weren’t even listening to him.  Collection of books in the garage; house “rented” out, women wearing 2-piece bikinis and so much more.  Nonetheless, this man amassed a fortune behind a very ambiguous past and everyone to this date is still unaware of his age.

Get this, regardless of what you might or might not like about him, he was one of those people who didn’t have that type of money when he was younger.  So, when he got the money, he lavished himself in it and had to show everyone.  His Tedx, called the ‘Good Life,’ was a bit laughed, in my opinion.  This coming from a public speaker – but this human being by the name of Tai Lopez has still been able to make millions of dollars.  Dollars that he must show to the rest of the world to make them feel inferior.

Questions & Answer: When Did I Start Reading

Ahhhh, questions and answers day.  One of my proud listeners asked me about when I started reading and about how I have so much knowledge in the personal development realm….so let me tell you step-by-step the unfolding of my soul.

First book….Rhonda Byrne’s ‘The Magic

51MTEJFwXyL._SX317_BO1,204,203,200_

This was one of the very first books I bought in Bangkok.  Being on the outskirts of Thailand, most book stores don’t have anything in English, nor was I buying anything on iBooks.  However, when I finally got my hand on this, these gratitude exercises began helping me with my incredibly negative mindset, especially during one of the most difficult months of my life.  With 30 days of gratitude exercises, this was great…but it didn’t necessarily help me in developing habits.

Jack Canfield – The Key To Living The Law of Attraction

6837138848_099a7f8c58

This book came about 5 months after (April 2015) and made me start writing down a bunch of things in terms of goals.  One of the most notable exercises is the 101 goals list.  Write down the 101 goals you want to achieve before leaving the body and domain.  I wrote down 99 and I’ve achieved 37 already, which is quite remarkable.  Studies have shown that if you write your goals down, it increases the chances of obtaining that specific goal by 40%.  If you’re even more specific with the dates, up the ante even more.  This book was a good starting point for me.

Paul Coelho and Napoleon Hill

41ybG235TcL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

1200x630bb

Paulo was read before Napoleon, and it indeed was a good book because it showed the perseverance of man.  The little boy going after his alchemy in the pyramids.  It’s a really good short-read and I would highly recommend it for a lot of non-native English speakers to get you in the game.

On the other hand, Napoleon Hill’s ‘Law of Success’ was the game changer.  This was the one that started changing my paradigms and everything in my mind.  Going through 15 lessons and doing podcasts on them, it has also changed a bunch of my listeners’ lives, too.  This is a “Highly Difficult” read and I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone who can’t speak English fluently.  However, you could always tune into my podcasts on YouTube or iTunes to listen to me go over key points. 😉

51naI917hJL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

This is the one whereas not only I’ve made podcasts for all episodes, but most notably, Principle Number 5, was the principle that restored my self-esteem and confidence in myself after it had been taken away from society.  Believing in myself again and the number of unbelievable exercises for not just business people, but the “ordinary,” makes it an absolute get.  I will recommend this book for all levels of learners.

Abundance-Now-Book

The geographical, social, and a number of other blueprints that have been controlling our mindsets of money seriously made me realize that I changed mine unconsciously 10 years ago.  This book is one of my absolute favorites, and especially for all the women out there – MUST GET! This is such an easy read and it makes you write down a lot of things.

The thing is, I’m not one of those people who read fictional novels because I did buy Paulo’s ‘Adultery’ at the same time I bought the ‘Alchemist’ and with the storyline, it began making me angry and relating to the things in my personal life.  So, I ended up giving it up.  I want reads that are life-changing and enthralling, not things that can dictate my frequency and vibrational levels in a negative way.

With that being said, I also have a podcast about why I chose these books and go into more detail so you can also have a listen if you’d like.  Other notable mentions are Tim Ferris’ 4-hour work week and Tony Robbins.

Clean Up Your Messes & Incompletes

If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what is the significance of a clean desk? – Laurence J. Peter

I really like to say this about a lot of people.  If you walk into a friends home and it’s an absolute mess, what do you think is happening within the mind?  People who can’t properly care for themselves ranging from a simple morning routine involving a shower, to the severely obese beings who continue to saturate themselves with the worst-processed-foods-imaginable.

You ask yourself, “why?”

I personally can’t think if my condo is a mess.  Every morning after meditation, I take a pre-workout before working out, and while it’s kicking it, I literally clean my condo within 2 minutes so when I come back, my clothes are laid out and ready to go for work.

This doesn’t just revolve around the physical world, but also the psychological world.

Look at it this way by bullet points.

  • Decide
  • Plan
  • Start
  • Continue
  • Finish
  • Complete

This is called the Cycle of Completion.  This is a great diagram Jack Canfield has in his book.

Are there areas in your life where you’ve left uncompleted projects or failed to get closure with people?  When you don’t complete the past, you can’t be free to fully embrace anything that’s happening in the present and it surely blocks anything from coming in, too.

When you start anything in life, make an agreement or identify a change you need to make, it goes into your present memory bank and takes up what Jack calls an “attention unit.”  We can only pay attention to so many things at one time, and each promise, agreement, or item on your to-do list leaves fewer attention units to dedication to completing other things.

Another Example of this is Tim Ferris.  He goes to bed on a clean conscious every night by rambling on paper everything that’s on his mind.  It could be that advertiser who pissed him off, the person who didn’t give the correct change back…ANYTHING.  Why? These events that take place during the day rob us of attention units.

A lot of us take on requests, projects, tasks and other things; however, we really want to say no, but we’re afraid of being perceived as the “bad one.” So what happens if you put off responding in order to avoid saying no.

Meanwhile the sticky notes and stacks of paper pile up and distract you.  There may be times whereas you have to make some uncomfortable decisions….but it’s better struggling with discomfort then cleaning up those incomplete.

Some incompletions come from simply not having adequate systems.  Other incompletions pile up due to bad working habits.  Be firm, assertive, and just say no.

 

Keep Your Eye On The Prize

“It’s easy to be negative and unmotivated, but it takes some work to be positive and motivated.” – Donna Cardiollo

It’s difficult to maintain a positive focus on life when there’s so much going on around us.  I know.  However, successful people find a way to do so by staying focused on their past success rather than their past failures.  Taking action steps on obtaining their daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly goals.  Making life excited in general by creating bonds and relationships by being spontaneous.  Just being constantly proaction in the pursuit of all objectives can make a boring long working day exciting.

First 45 Minutes Of The Day = The Most Important

So, remember on my last blog entry I talked about reviewing your successes for the day, reviewing the goals, focusing on the successful future, and making specific goals to accomplish the next day.

Some of you are wondering why at the end of the day? Well, whatever you ready, see, listen to, talk about and experience in the last 45 minutes of the day has a huge influence on your sleep and your next day.  A good example is looking at dreams.  Have you ever watched a video, talked to or about someone (positive negative way), or did something that inflicted any type of emotion – leading to that specific thing showing up in your dream? Have you ever went to bed pissed off and woke up with the same feelings you had the night before?

During the night, your unconscious mind replays and processes this late-night input up to six times more often than anything else you experienced during the day.  This is why cramming for school exams late at night can work and why watching a scary movie before bed gives you nightmares.

This is why even reading good bedtime stories is so important for children.  Those repeated messages, lessons and everything becomes the fabric of a child’s consciousness.

Think how much better it would be to read an inspirational autobiography or a self-improvement book before going to sleep.  How about watching a video about Fiji travel before sleep? Meditating into sleep using a guided meditation? The last 45 minutes of the day are the most important.

Jack Canfield – Master The Technology You Need

“Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, allowing us to do things more quickly and efficiently.  But too often it seems to make things harder, leaving us with fifty-button remote controls, digital cameras with hundreds of mysterious features, and cars with dashboard systems worth of the space shuttle.” – James Surowiecki

I want to be abundantly clear about how technology works.  When it comes to the gadgets, use them instead of it using you.

7-Day Technology Turnaround

Make a list of your technology annoyances.  I’m talking waking up and staying glued to your phone when you can be much more productive.  Most people have their phones bedside when they go to sleep and it’s the first thing they pick up in the morning.  That’s considered to be an annoyance.

On top of that – TV’s.  Most Americans spend so much time watching TV everyday.  For example, sports enthusiasts on Sunday could sit in front of the TV for up to 9 hours watching artificial events on TV.

Compile your list.  Once you do so, begin tackling the cleanup process.  Example, charge your phone outside your bedroom and put an alarm clock on within your bedroom – set the time, too, for when you want to wake up.

Limit yourself to TV hours.  I’m talking about writing down how many hours you actually watch TV a day and begin taking an hour off as time goes on. Take the micro steps, not macro.

Look at any other annoyances that hinder your production in the morning and the evening.

I know some people can’t even go shopping, out to dinner, or on vacation without their cell phones going off.  I’ve seen people in 5 different countries who sit at restaurants while tapping their phone and not conversing amongst each other.  This trend is growing worldwide.

In addition to annoyances, let’s talk about the low-information diet.  How many of you turn on the news every morning within the first hour of your day? A lot of people would say, “I need to be informed,” but you don’t have to be INUNDATED!

What are your feelings after watching the news? When you get to work, what’s the topic of discussion every morning? Does it revolve around how productive you were, or something that happened over night.  Car crashes, robberies, politics, natural disasters?

Try not turning on the NEWS for once in the morning and see how you feel when you get to work.  Instead of bringing up “circle of concern” type conversations, bring up something you’re grateful for or looking forward to.

Michael Bernard Beckwith once said, “you’re going to have to taking some heavy digestive enzymes to digest what you see on TV.  Instead of watching television, how about “tell a vision.”
