Read this twice! Your own audacity is leading to you being let down! Remind yourself, “who the fuck are you” and keep asking yourself that, no matter your success or power, Humility is the strength and the leader to happiness
Attention of the end consumer is the ambition! Whether you entertain them or educate them or just love them back, building a real relationship with your audience is the ambition of every human or business trying to achieve something! Whether you are @goldlink or @kyliejenner this needs to be the strategy
Expectations are poison ☠️
I’m desperate to get people to consider the audacity of expectations, we need so much more humility in the business world, let alone life. I listen to people complain in DM, in the office, text (1-212-931-5731) and so much of it is based on their expectations of others. So many lack the simple characteristics of empathy to consider maybe the world 🌍 doesn’t revolve around you or at least not at this moment. Too much expectations from many who have no leverage in the first place and are looking for something from that person in the first place.
How can you expect when you are asking for something in the first place !!!!!! Perspective up! More humility less audacity
So much sadness being created by people who use parents money or credit cards to act like “they are living large” instead of living large in a different way!
Living large is living with happiness of what you earned not trying to impress the outside with things you haven’t
Stunned by how much envy and jealousy is in the system. I see a lot of fake happiness out here! Remember everyone, you don’t know what’s happening in someone’s life, they maybe on a private jet but their child might have a terminal illness, they maybe walking on the beech in a fancy resort but their mother might have just passed away, they maybe in a Ferrari but their siblings won’t speak to them anymore! Don’t envy, focus on your happiness, not someone’s else potential happiness
I’m so happy so many are being liberated to actually go back to posting what they like instead of what they know or think will get likes.
That said it’s on us to realize it’s our own insecurities and lack of self esteem and “keeping up with the joneses and overvaluing other people’s judgement” that is the real thing to attack! Today it’s Instagram, tomorrow it’s something else and then something else then something else. We need to work on our mindset not our apps! ♥️

For anyone who leaves a comment that doesn’t agree with this, please try it for a few weeks / months and let me know. Also for those who claim they’ve been “walked over” for their kindness pls realize you’re in control and make sure you ask yourself was it “kindness” or were you manipulating an outcome? Kindness is the unlock 🔐
Stop 🛑 convincing! Too many people when they have something new or progressive spend 90% of their time trying to convince a perspective client or user.. I have a slightly different POV and it’s the one I took with launching a e-commerce business in 1996 and a social media agency in 2009 ect ...
This Question from a recent keynote I gave in Jersey is something I see a lot of you dealing with as you scale, I’m excited cause I know several of you are about to get something you needed at the right time!

Life is how you “see it” I just challenged myself for the last 4 minutes before this post to think about things in a negative way, I have 9713 things going on and if I choose to look at them from an entirely different angle I can easily get sad and anxious, in fact it’s wild to me how easily and quickly I was able to get to a feeling I don’t enjoy! My friends #perspective is the key to life! Let me promise you, if you choose to see “bad” “dark” “ugly”
It’s very easy, if you choose to see “light” “love” “good” it’s very easy! So much of this has to do with DNA, parenting and who you spend time with, this is where I come in, I’m willing to push and push until the end to help so many people see the > instead of the <
Casual sports locks 🔐 while getting ready for the @pencilsofpromise gala the other day. I have so much love for @pennstatefball because of @tyler and I’m obsessed with a lot of their talent but I just see @gophersports taking this one ... and so ... that’s how we do it
Listen we all do it differently, you don’t have to go super duper ridiculously hard like I did in my 20’s you don’t have to do it the way your parents want you to, you don’t have to do it the way you’ve been doing it, they key is knowing there are so many ways to do it, so many and knowing yourself and being thoughtful and patient is the foundation! Go do you!
When you live for “them” they may be happy in the beginning but ultimately if you live the life your parents want or demand of you it will lead to serious resentment. Please do yourself and your parents a huge favor and live your life, whether you’re successful in your field of choice or not, your happiness will be much deeper and most of all as the years go on your relationship with your parents will be better!
Parents want what’s best for their kids but that comes from their perspectives and their environment, by the time a child hit real life it’s a different world and that’s often difficult for parents to predict, parents have a challenge to lean into their child’s happiness versus perceived success in society but it is a chlwmege they must all face and push!
PS: even if the story above ended with the T shirt store failing that child and those parents would have a happier life and a better relationship and ultimately I know that’s what everyone wants, no parents would choose a child becoming a doctor or lawyer or entrepreneur but in turn resenting their parents to force them into it and end up with a broken relationship!
Good morning everyone, happy Sunday ☀! Thought this video might be interesting to start today with, often my energy or even my words can create a little confusion, I see it in many others and always felt it about hip hop and other music, many miss a message because of the way it’s delivered, the incredible part of social is the ability to create a lot of content and at times create nuances and clarity! It’s on me to make sure the content speaks clearly not on the audience to fully understand it, I genuinely think this clip is clarity and more importantly I think it’s a very and I mean very important message! I hope you Enjoy!
PS: Fuck the Giants 🏈
When everyone has a proper relationship with time the world will become a much happier place. I am very passionate in getting this sadly unique message into the world. The world is struggling and thinking its running out of time. I have personally watched people in their mid 70’s adjust their mindset and enjoy decades of happiness, so you can imagine my frustrations and passions to help 20’s,40’s and 60’s to understand they can start the process right now!
Reply with your age .... lets light up the comments
PS: I turn 44 next week 11/14 .. oh and I have a gift to all of you
If they’re taking time to consume your content and leave poison in the comments their life is broken, when you read their hate don’t take it in and feel bad for you, take it in and feel bad for them. I have compassion, sympathy, empathy for the “hate” I wish them peace and happiness.
I’m running 🏃 on my path ..I can’t hear the hissssing from the snakes 🐍 on the grass on the sides, I’m too busy focused on the finish line 🏁
Someone asked me what happens when you have loved a lot of things but want to try something else cause your burned out from those things!
My answer is don’t confuse “like” and “love”
I love ❤ my process, I want you to love ❤ yours
This man was drafted ahead of Kevin Durant... injuries derailed his career, many of you have been derailed early with debt, lack of patience, trying to impress others instead of yourself ... watch this ...
