Rock Bottom…Vegas

150 150 tommy

Happiness Pro-Tip

Coming to you from fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada, Living

Desert Apartments #17 (where I used to live back in the day).

YOU WILL LEARN MORE FROM ROCK BOTTOM THEN YOU WILL EVER LEARN FROM ANY MOUNTAIN TOP

Before the time I was 23 years old-

I had been arrested 19 times

11 times in Las Vegas

3 times from this very apartment

2 times they knocked

1 time they just kicked the door down

I am in town for the Conor McGregor fight, but I come back and visit these apartments every single time I am in town.

I guess I am lucky… not everybody gets a second chance.

I never want to forget the lessons that rock bottom taught me.

My encouragement is this, if you’re in a rock bottom time in your life I thoroughly

believe this-

LIFE HAPPENS FORYOU, NOT TOYOU

Take those lessons to really crystalize where you don’t want to be in life and use

that to grow.

Have a great week and remember do not regret the past, do not wish to shut the

door on it, go back and visit, smile and keep growing

And THAT is how you live the Goodlife.

 

Overwhelmed?

150 150 tommy
OVER******* WHELMED in my life right now.
I am COMPLETELY and TOTALLY OVERWHELMED.
happiness pro-tip…
 not just to tell you how amazing life is (I still 100% think it is), but instead what can you do when you are overwhelmed.
There are a few things I want to point out about being overwhelmed.
#1 is that YOU WILL BE OVERWHELMED in this life! Life will KNOCK YOU DOWN!
I wrote down an entire list of the SHIT that has me spinning and what I realized is that this happens to ALL OF US. It is a part of the human condition.
WELCOME TO LIFE. Things will STACK UP and TACKLE you when you least expect it. Life will do that to you…
IT IS PART OF BEING HUMAN!
I can do a lot of things about it, but the 1 thing I never want to do is…BITCH about it.
STOP bitching because it happens to everybody. Don’t be that person who goes around telling everybody about how life has got them down…
Life WILL stack up and knock you down so, what are some practical tools you can do?
#1 realize the you are NOT UNIQUE. It happens to EVERYBODY. Start here. You gotta realize where the pressure is coming from. It does not really matter what it is…
Did the atmospheric pressure change? Gravity get stronger? World spin slower?
No
Did anything else change except what has changed right here for you? NO…it hasn’t.
Everything is right here (mind). In YOUR OWN UNIVERSE.
It is the way that you process it.
SO what do you do? EVERYHTING that is right here (mind), put it on a piece of paper. I write down all the SHIT that overwhelms me. Now I can touch it, hold it, taste it. That in itself slows down the overwhelm.
But here is what I really do that makes all the difference in the world…
I say okay what do I love about EVERY SINGLE ONE of these things.
Another thing I will do is write what I am thankful for in every one of these things. Once I get everything onto paper I realize that most of it is just irritation.
This is what I learned at a sealfit training, when things stack up,
PRIORITIZE and EXECUTE
PRIOTITIZE what in most important and EXECUTE.
ACTION kills fear better than anything.
And if you CAN’T do anything about it…then you have to LET IT THE FUCK GO.
Do whatever you gotta do to let that shit go.
Usually, about an hour later I realize that these problems are high quality problems. I realize that my life is blessed.
My kids are all healthy.
I am not in jail.
I almost feel dumb for letting things like this overwhelm me.
The things that overwhelm you WILL PASS and they WILL MAKE YOU STRONGER.
It is just life. Things are going to happen they are going to stack up.
Get the thoughts out of your head and onto paper.
PRIORITIZE and EXECUTE and keep fighting your way out of it. Whatever you do don’t go walk around BITCHING about it.
That’s how you live the GOODLIFE

Quantum Jump to Happiness?

150 150 tommy

Happiness Pro Tip of the day

Stop looking for the quick fix. The media and everyone tries to tell you, “do this,” or, “do that,” and you will be happy…

That’s not how happiness works

There’s no quantum jump into happiness. It’s the little decisions that you make each day that compound. If you work out for one day are you going to see results? Probably not. But if you work out every single day and you stick to it you will see results.

Don’t look for the quantum jump…get out there and do the little things each day that make you happy!

 

If You Had One Wish…

150 150 tommy

Happiness Pro-Tip of the Day

Today’s Pro-Tip is coming to you in a question

 

If a genie popped out of a lamp and granted you one wish, what would it be? (and it can’t be unlimited wishes)

The bottom line comes down to this, no matter what your wish is…you are really wishing for happiness.

This is because, underneath it all, we all want to feel good.

 

We can choose the temporary escapes of life. The things in life that bring us temporary happiness, or we can choose to grown each day in life, progress and create a happiness that sticks.

 

You have to be the driver of your life. You have to choose to feel good each day. You have to choose a happiness that sticks.

I encourage you with this, choose to be happy right now because someday may never come.

Do things now to increase your happiness!

 

 

God is Not Your Cosigner

150 150 tommy

Happiness Pro Tip of the day

Do not Judge!

This is a direct quote from Jesus.

Which is IRONIC, because Jesus’s followers are some of the most judgmental people.

This is not the point that I am making today. The reason that I am saying this is because, judging people is the #1 thing that will destroy your happiness. Worrying about others and what they are doing will never increase your happiness.

Here are a couple reasons why:

  • Nobody ever gave you the authority to judge. You are not God! And you also cannot use God as your cosigner to judge. He did not ordain you to judge others. Worry about yourself and stay on your side of the fence.
  • When you judge someone this is saying something about who you are, not who the other person is.
  • We think we have the RIGHT to judge and we do not

We are born with 2 things.

  1. A need to be alright
  2. A need to be right

Kill both of these! We are going to die! This is pre-determined! So just enjoy life! Enjoy the ride! In addition, in order to be right you have to make somebody else wrong. We are not ordained in making the decision of who or what is right and wrong.

Do you Want to be happy? Stop Judging!

Do something good today. Leave other people alone!

And instead worry about yourself and being the best you can be!

 

 

 

The Best Personal Development Book of All Time

150 150 tommy

I have read thousands of personal development and religious books over the past twenty plus years.

The one book that stands out above all the others is, “Textbook for Alcoholics Anonymous.”

It should have been called, “Twelve Steps to Peace,” because the first 164 pages are pure gold!

The first 164 pages have nothing to do with alcohol, but instead provide the most effective process in ridding our lives of any fears or resentments.

I have seen people that are completely incapable of forgiving others and removing fear from their lives.

This book outlines the best process, the best spiritual growth, and the best personal development program I have ever read. Forget about the alcohol part! If you want to remove fears and resentments from your life, there is nothing more effective!

 

 

Do You Want Justice?

150 150 tommy

Happiness Pro Tip of the day

You have to remove things from your life that do not increase your happiness.

For example, if you love justice for others you will not be happy.

What I mean by this is, we often want mercy for ourselves, but justice for others. This is the exact opposite of what will make our lives better.

Let me encourage you with this:

Find a way to love mercy for others, and you will live a happier life.

Those of you who just want to enjoy this life, I am talking to you!

Do you want to be happy?

Then the single most important skill you can have in this life is to learn how to guide your thoughts.

Lost Touch With Reality

150 150 tommy

Happiness pro-tip of the day

I was told I lost touch with reality?

We all have a different perception of what reality is, so of course it is possible to lose touch with another persons perception of reality.

If you want to be happy you have to stop letting people tell you what your reality is and realize that you create your own reality in this world.
