Episode 440: The Magic of Discipline

Subscribe & Listen:

I’ve never been good at structures and systems.

Life events have their way of either robbing you of structure, or conditioning you to never have structure in the first place.

I’ve been talking this last week about structure and systems. You can’t skip the steps. For me, I’ve had to figure out how to put structure and systems into my life. Trading gives me ultimate freedom – but to be able to do it, I’ve had to put systems and structures in place in my life that didn’t exist before.

How can structures and systems change things? Let’s talk about it.

Episode 439: Los Angeles – The Congested Truth

Subscribe & Listen:

LA: The land of the entitled. You’ve heard me talking about leaving, and why I’m doing it.

Today we talk LA traffic, LA rent, LA dreamers and the vapid lot that come with reality television.

There are a lot of great people in LA, but this is a strange place. I’ve been here for 18 years. If I go to the supermarket, I’ll see one of hundreds of people I know here. Nobody really gets together with anybody because getting somewhere is literally in slow motion.

Have you ever felt like it’s time to go somewhere else? I’m doing it. I’m making a plan. Things are changing …

Let’s talk about it.

Episode 438: Is Life a System or Pattern?

Subscribe & Listen:

Today, Chris Luna returns to our show and we talk systems and patterns.

Lots of guys want to meet women, and they’re thinking about systems – “If you do A, B is going to happen.”

Patterns do develop in all things – stocks (which you know I’ve been talking about), dating, and seduction. Today, Chris talks more about patterns he’s recognized – the ways of thinking and approaches that have become part of his programs.

Patterns are in everything . You can buy as many courses as you want to, but if you don’t apply the advice and recognize the patterns – i.e., make the commitment to engage, nothing’s going to happen.

If you want to succeed in life, you HAVE to commit to the process.

Chris is a great person to show you how to do that. – check him out at https://www.craftofcharisma.com/ and listen to the podcast to hear more about his approach to coaching and more.

Episode 437: The Best $397 I Ever Made

Subscribe & Listen:

You probably know I’ve been learning about trading stocks, cryptocurrency and bonds. I’ve been learning nonstop – 17 hours a day, looking at charts.

I’m working on being able to see the same patterns over and over again. Life is patterns, no matter what your profession or what you do in life.

I’ve been virtual trading for some time, and now I’ve decided it’s time to rip the bandaid off and start paper trading – using the patterns to figure out how to become successful at this.

I know a lot of you who’ve listened to me are trying to meet someone, trying to work on techniques of meeting someone, work on how to become social – almost like paper trading through life, all you possibly can. Think about that – you’re literally life trading nonstop. Trying to figure out exactly how you, as a person, can start to see the patterns in people and start taking to them.

So today was my day to rip the Band-Aid off… tune in and I’ll tell you what happened.

Episode 436: Stop Crying for Your Mama and Grow Up

Subscribe & Listen:

I’m big into goals because I hear from so many people who don’t operate based on goals.

They know what they want, but they don’t have a plan. They don’t have goals.

In life, when you want something really badly, you can’t just BEG for it or wish for it – you have to listen for it. Want it, apply it.

I practice something in my life called the Power of Six. Six times, means, listen to the same thing over and over.

When you apply yourself, when you listen, when you set yourself up to achieve your goal – your patterns change. You change.

It’s time to set some goals.

Episode 435: Tomorrow is Really Pinocchio’s Nose

Subscribe & Listen:

Today I learned about the passing of someone.  It got me thinking about life – we’re always booking the ticket into the future.

We leave tomorrow piled everywhere we go.  We put off a lot of things until tomorrow. We’re good as human beings to put things off until tomorrow, because tomorrow’s another day – right?

But deep down, we know there isn’t an endless supply of life out there.

Sometimes, we just don’t have tomorrow.

The thing is, we’ve only ever had today, and the present moment. This moment right now.

Let’s talk living in the present, in the Now.

Episode 434: If Life Was Easy

Subscribe & Listen:

If life were easy, people would be doing it right.


It’s amazing how often people tell me their life is “incorrect,” “wrong”.

I always tell people over and over – if you want an uncomplicated life, concentrate on one thing at a time.

Let’s get into this a little deeper today ….

In the time you have for yourself, what are you doing? How do you spend your “free” time?

Episode 433: Goodbye LA, You Boiled My Fish

Subscribe & Listen:

You know what? LA sucks – and I’m ready to move on.

I’m in the process of breaking up with Los Angeles and it’s one of the best breakups of my life.

I’m moving to Austin, Texas in the near future. The houses are beautiful, the lifestyle is incredible. I can’t wait to get out of here.

I never thought Texas would be my type of place. After living in LA for 18 years, I can say I’ve loved so much about it. But last night, I came home to an apartment that was probably 110 degrees (yes, as hot as Austin). You’ll never believe what else I came home to …

Tune in and I’ll tell you more about what I found in my apartment when I got back.

Episode 432: How to Make Money Before Morning Coffee

Subscribe & Listen:

As you know, I’ve been documenting my day trading journey – all the way from crypto to stocks to everything in between.

The morning gap is one of those parts of trading that I’m still working on understanding. If you’ve been listening for a while, you probably know I’m always looking out for new strategies and techniques to improve my trading.

So the other day I’m looking at the internet and I come across a strategy that really changed the way I trade.

David Frost has over 2 decades’ professional trading experience, and using his techniques, myself and other traders are making money before morning coffee. You can’t argue with that.

Episode 431: The Best Swipe Dating App Ever

Subscribe & Listen:

Hope you’re all enjoying the 4th!

Let’s talk dating today – specifically, swipe apps.

So many people these days feel like dating is about “winning” – as if swiping enough is going to help you hit the jackpot.
Why doesn’t this work?

Life is about CONNECTING, not winning. So the question is, are you connecting?

So, how do we fix dating?

Well, my friend Charles is here to talk about his solution for “fixing” the imbalance we see in today’s swiped dating.

Tune in to find out more!
