Getting H.I.G.H. to Get What You Want

Seriously, when you get H.I.G.H. you can achieve even the most impossible endeavors. This is because getting H.I.G.H. means getting Highly Inspired to Get Hardcore. It means determindly seeking out your dreams and accomplishing your goals, no matter what gets in your way.

It's up to you what reason to use to get H.I.G.H., but any reason will do. Whether you're determined to reach financial stability, get into better shape, find your ultimate career path or you have a grander purpose in mind. When you get H.I.G.H. you determine your mindset, and you tell the energy around you that you are in control of your destiny and no longer just a tumbleweed blowing in the wind waiting for things to happen to you.

When you're H.I. you're already ready to G.H., which means it's only a simple choice made in the confines of your mind, that puts it all together. It's that little voice that says "Wow that's a good idea! I should do something about that!", and then it says "I AM going to do something about it."
When you're H.I.G.H. you're ready to take on the world, as you should be. It's an amazing feeling, as anyone knows.

So what are you waiting for?

Aren't you H.I.G.H. yet?

Supply & Demand: The Heavy Cost of Hemp

I know there are a lot of you out there, who like myself, would love to create hemp businesses. Whether it's textiles, apparel, foods or other creative endeavors. Yet everywhere you turn, you seem to be thwarted by the high price of hemp.

This is a real problem for a lot of businesses and entrepreneurs that would love to be hemp centered. I've looked into the simple idea of having a simple hemp-tee business, and the costs are astronomic. In order to buy ordinary tee's, made from the cotton plant which is well known to devastate any earth it's cultivated in, I could order bulk t-shirts for anywhere from $1 to $5 a piece, depending on whether I want one's produced in sweat shops or ones that are of higher quality. For the same options in hemp tee's, it costs between $10 to $20 per tee on a wholesale level. So in order to cover over head and make any sort of profit, I'd have to sell the tee's for more than double the cost.

Dreading the Tube

After creating this blog, my next step is to create some youtube videos of my speeches, so that me being a speaker becomes more real.

This is something I dread... It's nerve racking, especially when you feel like you're just talking to yourself. Then you wonder if other people will think you sound as funny as you think you do.

My even bigger problem is trying to find something remotely professional and relevant to wear. Then it's an issue of figuring out just the right background for my camera view... I didn't worry half as much when I sang on stage in my band or nearly as much when I did my talk-radio show. Yet there just seems to be something so much more powerful about putting your whole self out there on a video that may never get seen, or just as terrifying (in a good way) what if the vids become instant hits that go viral and everybody instantly recognizes you?

Am I being weird? Yeah, I am. I know it.

As a soon-to-be motivational speaker, I can already hear all the great speakers I've listened to and read about, going through my head telling me to do it anyways. Courage is what happens when we are afraid of doing something, but do it anyways. Right?

How Am I Doing?

Sometimes I wonder if I'm to "wordy" or if I'm letting my flair for writing take over to much.

It really bites as my confidence, and I would love to hear from any of you out there reading this, what you think of my posts?

What emotions do they give off?

What do they inspire you to do?

Is there something else you want me to talk about?

Feel free to comment on this post, or any of the others. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

Building With Broken Bricks

"A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him."       ~David Brinkle

Think about this quote, because when I read it, I really felt that it embodies everything I'm trying to help you see. If success can be found by building with the broken bricks that have smashed at your feet, then that's what we need to strive for.

Here... Let me explain a little better...

"happiness and success in life are not the result of what we have, but rather of how we live. What we do with the things we have makes the biggest difference in the quality of life." -Jim Rohn

"happiness and success in life are not the result of what we have, but rather of how we live. What we do with the things we have makes the biggest difference in the quality of life."  -Jim Rohn

This is a lesson that Jim Rohn taught the great Tony Robbins, two of my idols. It's a great lesson, and one that any person trying to shape their lives, really needs to understand.

Think about it, if we continue to focus on the prohibition alone, then we'll continue to be stuck going in circles with politicians and law-makers. Yet if we focus on what we already have, and expand on that, we can overcome the prohibition in the blink of an eye.

Getting H.I.G.H. Means Believing That You Can!

If your H.I.G.H. you can do anything.

If your H.I.G.H. it means you believe in yourself.

When you get H.I.G.H. your capable of achieving anything you can imagine!

Getting H.I.G.H: Legalizing Cannabis

Are you a part of the 90% of this nation that think the Drug War has failed?

Are you a part of the 85% of this country that wants to see an end to arrests for cannabis possession?

Are you a part of the 75% of these great states that feels that cannabis should be included in every aspect of our lives, not excluded?

Let's Get H.I.G.H!

Thats right! I said it!

We should get H.I.G.H.

Yet you must have noticed that I'm not talking about getting "high", in the literal sense. No! I've turned that dreamy word into an awesome acronym which means "Highly Inspired to Get Hardcore".

And I want you to get Highly Inspired to Get Hardcore about your freedom, your dreams, your income and about legalizing cannabis. I want you to get H.I.G.H. about turning your life into what it should be, and I am motivated to motivate you to succeed. Together we can do it!

The Adventure Begins

It has always been a dream of mine to become a motivational speaker. So even against all the knots churning in my stomach, I'm going to get out there and get started.

I've finally figured out just what I would love to motivate you to do, and I'm in the process of writing a book about it, so that I can get out into the world and make a difference.

I'm excited, and I hope you are to!
