Stress, Struggle & Sacrifice!

Stress, Struggle & Sacrifice!

How's your 2016 going so far? 
We're getting towards the end of January and I wanted to share some thoughts with you.
Are you on track with your goals that you have set. Are you on track to create a lifestyle that you TRULY desire? Or are you settling for less than you DESERVE.
For me, it's been one of the best start to a new year for awhile. I have set a roadmap for my goals this year and I am staying laser focus on reaching each and everyone of them. Today was a great day to end my month. Seeing the Tran's Tribe (students, families, and their friends) come out to the Private Screening of Kung Fu Panda 3 was amazing. We had the whole theatre to ourselves and we filled up both rooms. Just seeing everyone enjoying

themselves with family and friends makes me HAPPY. It's the simple things like these that makes me feel so blessed that I truly found my calling in life and that I love what I do and do what I love.
If you have been reading my weekly message long enough, you would know that I have had a lot of stress, struggle & sacrifice in that past 3 years. I had to work so hard to get out of the mess that I was in. Lots of PAIN but it was the perfect STROM that I needed. I am thankful for the struggles that I had to go through. They made me stronger. Don't let them break you. Let them make you.
There are no short cuts, no get rich schemes and no easy way out of it...you want to be great at something and that means mastering yourself.
How many hours are you prepared to put in each day to develop your skills? How committed are you to becoming the very best that you can be.
I normally wake up at 5:30 AM to begin my 'quite time.' It's my favorite time of the day. But this year I decided to join the 5 AM club. I now wake up at 5 and run. Yes, RUN! The first few days was very hard to get out of bed and think of running. I wanted to stay in bed so bad but I know that I would regret it later and I hate to live with that. 
But now it is getting a little bit easier each time. I look forward to my quiet time right after my run. A half hour might not seem much but it has made a huge difference in my day. This is just one of the many updates that I have for myself this year.
When you start to live a life that is completely aligned with your highest calling, greatest vision and deepest values you become the type of person that appreciates your own existence and being.
One of the best thing I ever did in my own life is to stop trying to live the life that the world expected of me to live and just started creating a life that simply gives me a deep since of PEACE.
You have got to stop with all the BS. No, not what you are thinking. I'm talking about your 'belief system.' The stinkin' thinkin' that is hold you back from your true potential.
At the end of the day when the light goes out that's when you face your reality and you can put on whatever act you want when the lights are on but when the lights goes out it's you that has to face your deepest emotions and if you're not happy of the life you are living then you're going down a road that ends in depression and unhappiness. 
Stop getting distracted by the things that have nothing to do with your goals. When you wake up on Monday, will you start the day with the intentions to work hard and become someone great, or will you dread having to get up and complain that it's Monday?
One of the most important factors on the road to success is the ability to stay focused on the bigger picture, despite the bumps and obstacles that will inevitably hit you. When you feel like giving up, stay positive. When you feel like you're killing it, and you're at the top of your game, stay humble. Rain or shine, day or night, weekend or weekday, good or bad, no matter what the day presents, you have to keep your eyes on the prize.
