I Am Full of Shit


October 18, 2019

Okay, so I am full of shit.

Let’s start there.

Yesterday I went up to LA to go to an all-day seminar with a bunch of speakers. Some of them were horrible-the worst ever. Just trying to sell something-but there were some good ones.

Gene Simmons, was actually was a very entertaining speaker, and the last one was Gary Vaynerchuk. If you don’t know who Gary Vee is he’s a very real person. He’s one of the few people I consider a role model/mentor, even though I don’t actually know him personally or anything like that.

He’s so real and when he was talking it was really good. watch his content and his videos. I would say go see him.

He is a very very real person and one of the things I was thinking is, you know, that’s my goal is just be as real as possible to really walk the walk and not care what anyone else thinks just be me.

What you see is what you get.

Yesterday I had to call in for my kids orthodontist appointment and when I called in I said, “hey had a little emergency something came up. I had to come to LA to go to this thing have to reschedule the appointment.” Because I didn’t want to pay the $50 cancellation fee. And you know when I was thinking about being real I thought man after all I am still full of shit. I still have it in me to just straight-up lie instead of saying, “hey, here’s the deal we’re paying a zillion dollars for these braces. You’re gonna have to forgive me this $50 thing because I forgot to cancel and and here we are and no I won’t pay the $50 cancellation fee.” Instead of doing that, It just made me realize man this quest to be the real, you know, there’s always going to be shit that still needs to come out. I mean, don’t get me wrong. It’s nothing like I was…I was sneaky AF when I was young. I mean I was a criminal so of course You can’t be honest when you’re a criminal and I was really good at lying, stealing, cheating the whole deal.

I just thought It was like a spiritual gift that I had and it just was kind of as I realized as you go through this thing. We never really get there. There’s a happiness protip realize this, you know, you never really get there. You never get it all done. You still just keep working on yourself. You keep progressing on yourself and it’s something that I want. you know, seeing him. He had a lot of good stuff to say, but the one thing I got from it is, I’m just going to continue to keep trying to be real and shooting people straight no matter what the consequence is. That is not that easy because I’m real good at telling you what you want to hear. I don’t want to do that anymore. I want to be as real as I can. We never get it, right. We never finished. We just keep going. We just keep moving forward because progress equals happiness. It’s progress to even care that I told that tiny lie and be able to do it. So my happiness Pro tip today is, It’s not even the happiness Pro tip today actually. I just wanted to throw it out there that I am still full of shit. And that’s the bottom line, but I’m getting better and better at getting that shit out of me every single day.

That’s how you live The Goodlife.
