Transformation Tuesday – My Mother Abandoned Me — Now What?

A very tough outing with Mira, but also a life-transforming one. Because I feel my mother is somewhat similar to my father, I feel like she has abandoned me, too. My father dropped me off at the doorstep of a house in 1999 and saw it for the last time in 2001. My mother, who hadn’t supported me since 2012, has been AWOL since 2013. Sure, a couple of bullshit Facebook-post likes can tell a huge lie about how supportive she really is. So Mira took me through the segment and I now have figured it all out. But now what?

The Global Coaches Podcast| Inspirational Monday | Arsenio Buck | No Net

WOW! Welcome to my new joint-podcast featuring Mira Butler and I. At the time, we started with four but the others weren’t in alignment with the overall purpose of this podcast so now it’s just Mira Butler and I. In the future, we will attract more to us.

Because I’m the first podcast debuting, I need to give a solid introduction behind why I started a new podcast. Mira Butler and I have done a ton of work together, and we’re trying to conjure up ways to expand our reach. We began with the IG lives because we realized they would play a pivotal role in creating our tribe, but having a podcast, too, would obviously push things out there at a far-quicker pace. Our goal is to bring coaches with specialities in a wide-range of areas. Mira being a transformation coach, myself being an inspiration coach, and we’ll find others who specialize in other areas. There’s a lot to be spoken about and there will be an introduction podcast coming shortly, but today is my inspirational message.

Three Questions to Think About Often & Keeps You Focused

Some things you need to keep in your mind that will help you maintain focus. The most important question is: “what is something in your life that death isn’t going to kill?” I’m speaking from a legacy standpoint. What is something that is and forever will be after you leave the body and domain? This is called impact….and if you strive for impact while you’re alive, you won’t count the minutes, hours, days, weeks, months….you will live in the NOW and embrace all things that come to you.

1) If the truth was written on your tombstone, what would it say?

  • Lived, but never felt alive?
  • Didn’t go for his/her dreams?
  • This person died empty because he lived an empty life!

2) If your life ended today, what regrets would you have?

                                   List all your regrets!

3) What is something about your life that death isn’t going to kill?

  • What’s going to live on when you move on?
  • What about you is never going to die?

Honorable Quotes

“Don’t disrespect your life by wasting your life.”

“You are in control of how you live your life between now and death.”

10 Ways to make your dream come true

1. Be Yourself

SOME people might say you’re too fat, you’re too short, too straight, too gay. Whatever your sexual preference is, color of your skin, perception of life, values…just know that there will never be another YOU on this planet. In order to make your dreams come true, you have to be 100% authentic about who you are. If you’re even just slightly off, that could have a catastrophic effect on your passion.

Meditation & Yoga Benefits | Mindfulness Course

We’re back with Part II of this amazing course, and today we’re going to be diving into the benefits of meditation and yoga. Since I started doing yoga religiously, I now have no problems falling asleep. Two years ago, on the other hand, would be very difficult for me because I wasn’t able to control my thoughts. That’s one of the man benefits yoga has; on top of the boosting of the immune system. Listen to Mira break this down.

Relationships, Friendships, & Intimacy | Carla Trigo

Amazing podcast with Carla Trigo! I brought Carla on about a year ago today, and now she’s come back on to share some tips and give you guidance in terms of relationships and how to openly communicate. Because the restrictions of movement around the world, not only has domestic violence risen significantly but also divorces. Why? People are at home and they have to face what ISN’T working. In saying that, here is some bulletpoints on what we talk about with the podcast link below.

  • Not forcing friendships
  • Being spontaneous in a relationship
  • Roles within a relationship
  • Face what isn’t working
  • Essential oils and smells that arouse both men and women

Rich Dad Poor Dad | S5 – E10 | The Broken American School System

Our school system, created in the Agrarian Age, still believes in homes with no foundation. Dirt floors are still the rage. So kids graduate from school with virtually no financial foundation. One day, sleepless and deep in debt in suburbia, living the American Dream, they decide that the answer to their financial problems is to find a way to get rich quick.

Construction on the skyscraper begins. It goes up quickly, and soon, instead of the Empire State Building, we have the Leaning Tower of Suburbia. The sleepless nights return.

As for Mike and me in our adult years, both of our choices were possible because we were taught to pour a strong financial foundation when we were just kids.

Accounting is possibly the most confusing, boring subject in the world, but if you want to be rich long-term, it could be the most important subject. For rich dad, the question was how to take a boring and confusing subject and teach it to kids. The answer he found was to make it simple by teaching it in pictures.

My rich dad poured a strong financial foundation for Mike and me. Since we were just kids, he created a simple way to teach us.

For years he only drew pictures and used few words. Mike and I understood the simple drawings, the jargon, the movement of money,

Rich people acquire assets. The poor and middle class acquire liabilities that they think are assets.

and then in later years, rich dad began adding numbers. Today, Mike has gone on to master much more complex and sophisticated accounting analysis because he had to in order to run his empire. I am not as sophisticated because my empire is smaller, yet we come from the same simple foundation. Over the following pages, I offer to you the same simple line drawings Mike’s dad created for us. Though basic, those drawings helped guide two little boys in building great sums of wealth on a solid and deep foundation.

Ramble of Positivity: Episode 030 – Kicking off The New Year on Fire

First and foremost, the majority of you need to understand how to be grateful. When I do this particular podcast, I love to outline just how to do that, so here it is!

Actionable Steps

Give me a list of 5 things you’re especially grateful for — unattached to money.

Give two people compliments throughout your day without being told to do it.

How can you develop a positive mental attitude?

From the beginning of last year, I started developing my mind rigorously — day-in and day-out. For most of you out there, development in general is something of the past. Some of you aren’t even into personal development, and you’ll be doing the same things (if you haven’t already started) this year just like you were doing last year. Same people, same irresponsibility, same habits, same everything. You have to train your mind, and it’s one of the most difficult things to do.

I recall going to Australia back in 2017 and a friend told me, “you’ve changed. You mention being black and you have a thing against caucasians like I’ve never seen before.”

Still carrying the weight of how society, as a whole, has treated me in this country….I was still a victim. In order to escape victimhood, you have to to hone in and own up to everything that has ever happened to you. The University of Hardknocks loves giving out degrees to just about everyone in the world; regardless of race, creed, color, religion, etc.

At the beginning of last year, and as desperate as I was, I came across Napoleon Hill’s Positive Mental Attitude and that was the beginning of the change.

From actionable steps, to habits….you have to train your mind. I’m done with the “I will” and I love “I’m going to” more…because that’s a plan. Will is in the future and will forever be in the future.

  • I’m so unbelievably grateful that I’m living in an age where ample opportunity is everywhere.
  • I’m very thankful for the support group I’ve created that constantly gives me feedback.
  • I’m proud of the fact that I’ve been able to develop my mind to the point that I get amazing ideas to improve my business and give back to the society.
  • With all my heart, thank you for the process last year….a process which was so desperately needed.

Ramble of Positivity: Episode XXIII – Wheels Up! Vacation In Malaysia Begins!

First and foremost, I just want to say thank you to everyone who’s listening to my podcasts in Albania, Latvia, Algeria, UK, USA, Germany, India, Russia, South Africa, Austria, Netherlands, Japan and so many other countries around the world.

I want to also say thank you to my ESL Podcast listeners worldwide who have made my podcast a massive hit in only two weeks time! Big thanks to Mexico, Turkey, USA (funny how folks in USA love my podcasts), and China!.

This is a time just to be grateful for all my hardships and success.  This day, April 13th, marks the day of the Songkran festival.  This is the Thai water festival where people celebrate by splashing others with water all up and down the streets, and across the nation as a whole.

For the last three years, on the other hand, I’ve been taking vacations.  I initially took these vacations because I wanted no part of Songkran after being gravely disrespected and seeing Indians racially spewed at by Thais back in 2015.  I said, “I’ll never celebrate this festival again for as long as I live.”

When April 2016 rolled around I went to Vietnam, meeting some of the most magnificent individuals who I still keep in contact with today.

2017 was a trip back home to Arizona and a Tough Mudder.

This year….Spartan Race!

You know, at the beginning of the year, it was pretty bleak.  It was a tough transition and very emotionally exhausting going from one job to another.  Having a slew of emails come into my email box which were threats from my previous employer and removing me as a teacher from multiple classes so he can stop the cash-flow from going into my bank account, was tough to deal with.

However, this is the day that my visa is officially cancelled with that old job, and this marks the beginning of a unbelievably exhilarating lifestyle that’s going to bring so many experiences into my life.

Guys, this morning I’m going to my favorite Southeast Asian country (Malaysia) for a Spartan Race, meeting with a new content writer who’s coming on board my website, and a wedding.  I mean this is probably marking the beginning of “2018.”  All the goals I’ve written down have now come into fruition, and I really can’t wait for the wheel of life episode to let you all know you can claim that life you’ve always wanted.

Oh, on this day is the beginning of what’s going to be the most unbelievable life I could’ve ever imagined.  All these aches and pains of what has happened over the last five years have come to rest, and now this is surely the beginning.

Welcome to my world.
