My life has been so much more enjoyable and less stressful since I decided to really go hard at ignoring negative people and negative situations, only focusing on those with positive energy.

Try it!
I took some simple steps:

1. Don’t engage with negative comments, messages or news stories first thing in the morning - They start your day off the wrong way

2. Take a minimum of 24 hrs to reply to any person that has historically added negativity to your life. Slowly remove
3. Focus on positive people on social media and ignore those who discuss people, belittle others, complain too much or share too many negative stories

4. Ignore the haters

5. Don’t respond to every person in real life or social media - Attention-seekers like attention.
6. Share your truth and your experiences regardless of what negative comments will be made - Someone is going to benefit and be thankful.

That are who really matter. Pay it forward.

7. Make time to meditate each day with a quote that inspires you
8. Be mindful of the energy you inject into someone else’s day - Don’t be the rain cloud on their sunny day.

Don’t dump your problems on someone else if they haven’t agreed to play that role.

9. Be mindful of how you react to life happening to you
10. Use each negative experience as a learning experience and pretend like you fell off a bicycle - You wouldn’t stay down so figure out how to get back on and ride.

A glass half-full attitude goes a long way
11. Stop trying to coach people who don’t see you as a coach - It’s like banging your head against a wall.

Coach the ones who want to be coached and leave the others alone. They’ll find the right coach for themselves or join you later.

It’s like any product adoption curve
12. Accept that you can’t save everyone at the same time so focus on launching the first lifeboat. You can come back for more survivors on the second trip

13. Don’t feel bad for losing a “friend” now that you’re leveling up - They were never a true friend then
14. Project your self-worth and stop letting people walk all over you - Confidence matters

15. Say ‘No’ as a default answer until your stuff is running smoother

16. Be upfront about your current needs and work with people willing to help you accomplish the goals in the timeline
17. Unapologetically be you and don’t pretend to be anyone else - Authenticity always wins out and it’s easier to be yourself then pretend to be someone you aren’t because one day you’ll forget when to act the part
18. Be nice to strangers

19. Make more people smile, even at your own expense

20. Don’t hold unto past failures, grudges or hate - That eats at your soul so get rid of all of it fast after learning from the experiences

Hope this helps you

I really look up to #SteveJobs and you can tell just by my bio and the quote I have in it.

He would have been 65 years old today so here are some of my favourite quotes from him that have helped guide my life and decision-making.
Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations - #SteveJobs
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. - #SteveJobs

This session with an entrepreneur and his wife yesterday had my brain working ALL night and so I’ve decided to do a #thread without my super personal details.

This is a thread about #love and being an #entrepreneur
Once I had clarity of purpose and felt in my soul that I knew why I was on this planet at this particular time, I wrote a plan to achieve that ultimate objective.

I studied role models to understand how they managed to find love, especially paying attention to @richardbranson
Staying married seems to be extremely hard for ambitious people willing to take risks few people will take.

It is easy to be singularly-focused and seem selfish. Your business can seem all-consuming. You drop so many balls trying to juggle them.

A #thread on the largest wealth transfer in history

This comes from the notes that I took in August when attending the Private Wealth Forum in Palm Beach this year

#wealthpreservation #wealthcreation #investing #familyoffice
- US$48 Trillion are going from Baby Boomers to Gen X and Millennials

“People worry more about not having enough money more than taxes” - Vincent Munno

- US$122+ Trillion in UNFUNDED liabilities (USA)

- 328 Million population (USA)
- 122 Million taxpayers
- 116 Million benefits recipients

This means that taxes MUST rise.

A #thread about the way you think about money and wealth
As a member of a family office association for the last 5 years, I get to spend a fair amount of time with ultra-wealthy people. Thankfully I was never raised to think of rich people as evil or mean nor did I feel entitled to their money.
A few years ago I attended the car show in Miami with my brother and we saw a really nice Nissan GTR. The owner was there and while other people fixated on how much it cost him or what mods he put on it, we asked him what he did for a living that allowed him to afford it.

This is the handout for attendees and it has some sobering statistics about #Jamaica but it also shows the opportunity for the unbanked and underbanked
Reliance on cash remains high
