It’s Time to Stop: 20 Things You Need to STOP, today.

By on Sep 17, 2017 in Lessons | 0 comments

You may not be able to control all the things people do to you, but you can decide that those aren’t your truths anymore.  You can decide not to allow the actions and opinions of anyone else invade your heart and mind and become toxic to your soul.  And above all, you can decide whom to walk beside into tomorrow, and whom to leave behind today. It’s time to… Stop letting people drag you into needless arguments. – Never waste your time trying to explain yourself to people who have proven that they are committed to misunderstanding you.  And don’t define your intelligence or self-worth by the number of arguments you have won, but by the number of times you have said, “This needless nonsense is not worth my time!” Stop letting people drown you with their negativity. – Positivity is a choice.  Choose wisely.  Be smart enough to walk away from the negativity around you… it is never...

We all have self-doubt, angst and anguish in our hearts, we all have feelings like “I am not good enough, pretty enough, or worthy of love enough”. But you are. Ditch that toxic shit. Immediately.

How to Never Lose Your Muchness In a World Who Wants You to Do Nothing but Lose Your Muchness

By on Sep 7, 2017 in Lessons | 1 comment

Conformity. Social norms. Not my bag. Never wanted them to be. If you are reading this, you shouldn’t either. If you could label me, I’d be the rebel, the outcast; the overachieving asshole. I’m okay with all those tags. After all, I realize that they are other people’s labels for me, not my labels for myself. And, truth be told, no one knows me better than I do. So to me, YOUR labels don’t matter. That’s what happens when you realize you can’t lose your muchness. Opinions mean little, attitude means everything. No one knows you better than what you do, either. We live in a world where love and life and success come pre-defined in a box that is wrapped up neatly in a package of happy on the corner of “Xanax and Fuck You”. People have to fit into boxes. Feelings have to fit into boxes. Everything has to fit into a perfect box of normality and come complete with a white picket fence or...

Can Music Soothe the Savage Soul?

By on Sep 6, 2017 in Lessons | 0 comments

Music, to me, is a vital element of life. It can help us feel good, it can console us when we are feeling down and it can breathe life into us and make us want to bust out singing or dancing at random moments. To me, music is magic.Powered By the Tweet This PluginTweet This I am known to ALWAYS have music around me, regardless of where I am, because I love how it changes the energy, the vibe of a moment. I think music wields TREMENDOUS amounts of power. I believe that a life without music is devoid of some of the most wonderful experiences in life. Which is probably why I have it on, quite literally, all the time. I listen to it when I cook. I listen to it when I clean. I sing along with it (badly) in the shower. I use it for random car dancing moments – and to freak out other drivers. Regardless, I believe that music is an absolute necessity. It helps me, every day, get in the right...

Arrogance v. Humility: A Study of Humans

You should ALWAYS come to the table humble, because you really DON’T know who you’re talking to. Until, you do. And that might surprise you. You’ll never learn that, though, unless you come to the table humble. So?

Even though everyone had the power to change their destiny in their hands, they sat there, and did nothing…but complain.

Dear Dad, No Thanks

By on Aug 24, 2017 in Inspiration, Lessons, Life | 0 comments

It’s been 26 years since I last saw my biological father. It’s been 26 years since I have spoken to him, and very few years in between that I have spoken of him, in depth. My father was a bad man. There is no if ands or buts about it. He was selfish, self-absorbed, narcissistic and mean. He was probably the meanest person I have ever met. No, I take that back, he WAS the meanest person I ever met. He was also charming. He was also incredibly smart. Poetic, musical, he could turn his charm on and off like a faucet. He knew business, he knew numbers; in fact, most everything I learned in my younger years about business (in its most rudimentary of forms), and how it is a dog eat dog world, I learned from that man. He was also evil. He was mean and evil and didn’t care about being either one. What he did to me, what he did to my siblings….is unforgivable. But, when I found out he was on...

An Open Letter to Assholes on the Internet

By on Aug 16, 2017 in Lessons, Life |

What do I want YOU to take from this? 6 things:

Never put stock into what someone who doesn’t know you

says
. They are clearly misinformed and haven’t been paying attention.

It doesn’t matter what you say, do or post, or how polarizing it is, you have people hating on you anyway — pay attention to people who like hateful comments and delete them IMMEDIATELY, and also people who don’t clap when you win.

Keep doing you. Know that when you help people, everything else takes care of itself, hateful comments

be
damned.

Don’t troll social media and be a dick. I haven’t, for years now. I’m far happier for it.

Never ever EVER trust people based on posts alone. I have seen the sweetest posters lie and I have seen the most volatile posters be the sweetest people in the world. Sometimes, you build walls not to keep people out, but to protect what’s left. The SECOND you start behaving like these people on someone else’s thread, you need to check yourself first — which I say out of love, because I have made this mistake in the past, but never again. For over 2 years I haven’t said a negative thing

on
anything anyone else has posted, yet they feel inclined to say something on mine? Must mean I’m doing something right. #weedoutthefriendgarden

Above all else, do you. It doesn’t matter if it pisses people off or offends them or makes them angry. Do YOU. You’re the only one who can. And you know what? Other people, like YOU, need to hear it. Not the watered down version, not the weak version, but the strong version. And they need to hear it so they can find their own voice. Never forget that. Be you. Be strong and get RID of people who can’t understand your vibe. You’re not for them. They aren’t for you. And that’s all okay.

Tough Love Warning: Has ‘It’s Relative’ Just Become the Newest Excuse for Justifying Your Own Bullshit?

I speak a lot about success. I mean…a lot. Why do I do this? Frankly, it’s because I want to see other people be successful Me? I lucked into success. Several years ago, when I was just starting out in real estate, right after the market bottomed out, I was trying to differentiate myself from my competitors. I stumbled upon blogging. I wrote for Ehow, Realtor.com, Yahoo, MSN, CNN and many, many others. I was paid, up front $10 – $250 per assignment. I also earned part of their advertising residuals from that. I printed out those articles to share at open houses and used those items to send to my clients. Every single thing I put out into articles and newspapers and feeds became a gold mine for me. I mean, what OTHER San Antonio Realtor was featured on the front page of Yahoo? That would be NONE. Blogging did more for my business (and not even on my own blog) than any piece of...
