SecondChances. (I may be rambling...but) About 15 years ago, I decided to take my own life. I chose to say goodbye & give up, bc I didn't want to continue upsetting people around me and disappointing myself. Nothing went my way & I felt out of control or cursed or doomed. . Nothing I did worked the way I wanted no matter how hard I tried or worked at it. I felt the world & the people around me would be better off without me in it and they would soon forget about me. Then they could get on with living life & be happy without a burden like me. . Today I look back & realize all that I've been through (knowing I have not had it as hard as other, & I'm not comparing) I realize that this was my path, including trying to commit suicide back then and I learned who I am & what I can endure, & overcome. . I'm grateful for the opportunity to live today & be involved with so many wonderful people, & honored to live such a beautiful life. Though I don't regret my path or journey, it has taught me much. . In times like today, suicide prevention awareness, I feel I should tell everyone that I survived, and because of loved ones who didn't want me to go away. My younger sister who literally saved my life & family that came to rush to me at the hospital. They proved to me in their own way they care. . Let's make a pact w each other; lets not act surprised when we hear another person took their life like it came from out of nowhere. Let's pre-emptively give acceptance, kindness & love. Listen to one another when we are having a terrible day, week, or month. Let's not suppress our problems or not give our feelings the acknowledgment they deserve & talk to one another. Be there for each other. Provide safe places to talk & connect. Let's not keep it to ourselves any more & be courageous in our vulnerability. Let's all start treating each other w #kindness , #empathy , patience, & love. . No-one is perfect, yet we are perfect just the way we are. We all have a gift & a special purpose to fill. Be patient w yours. It will show up. . Did my best ☝️☝️☝️ . #suicidepreventionday #NotYourAverageCEO #imperfectlyperfect #perfectineveryway #patience #love #survivor #gratefultobealive

WordsOfWisdom. From @jeyofmyuberlife Photo @johnyuyi Quick Maths for the Warriors. Do not be discourage my fellow Wolves. Charge ahead. Build. Love. Create. Make. Disrupt. 1. Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man’s genetic lineage-the notion that a man’s intellectual and characterologic al traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry. 2. Racism is a doctrine of, by and for brutes. 3. The question of whether one allegthe Superiority or Inferiority of any given race is irrelevant; racism has only one psychological root: the racist's sense of his own Inferiority. 4. Your Success is Protest. Proceed without the acknowledgement of brutes and fools, with love. 5. Keep The Mind Civil. Keep The Body Savage. This is the Way of the #PeacefulWarrior 6. #BeWolfAboutYourDream #MULFMAB #AynRand #Racism #Economics #Love #TakeMeToWellvyl #NotYourAverageCEO #founder #ceo #ceotalk
SeeTheWorldPastYouself. We think we're so important. We think we know everything. We think we've got nothing to lose. We think we've worked hardest. We think our pain is the worst. We think no one knows our shoes. . Remember you're not the first person on this planet, you're not the first person to look up at the sky and think. You are not the only one who's ever suffered or experienced pain and you're most certainly not the only person on this planet. . Have some humility. Think about your thoughts, your words, and your actions and how they affect everyone on this planet, because whether you like it or not; friends with them or not; related to them or not; know them or don't know them. Someone you know knows them. . We Are All One. We Are All Connected. . Let's not make assumptions, let's start communicating and stop wearing masks. This is bigger than you and I. It's the world, the universe. #TakeMeToWellvyl #kindnessisgangsta #goldenrule #NotYourAverageCEO #founder #ceotalk #realtalk #enoughalready #biggerthanme #WEisGreaterThanME #dontmakeassumptions #communicationiskey #letstalk #letsdothistogether #sunsets #nyc #nycsunsets #nycrooftop
YoullNeverBeAlone. I always see how great our lives are and how awesome things are here on social media. I see how people celebrate Good Vibes only and we avoid pain and suffering. You know, all the other real vibes and emotions we go through every day. I see how we don't want to talk about what's taboo. What hurts. What's real. Enough of that fake bullshit. I've been hurt, left out, condisended to, belittled, underestimated and ignored. People have used me as a scape-goat, a punching bag and just plain benefited. I challenge you to post your real feelings and let it out because we all have these feelings and everyone needs to know that they're not alone. We all can't be the picture perfect version that society expects or presets. Post and show us your feelings. Show them your feelings. Today, I challenge @kwasiofmyuberlife @jeyofmyuberlife @wincep_ofmul @livyoung @steveuria @avenueswank @senseiderek @jesseisrael @ggorin to step up and share your true feelings like me. #WearYourFeelings How we treat each other directly effects our mental, physical and spiritual health. #YoullNeverBeAlone #AllTheFeelingsMatter #NotYourAverageCEO #TakeMeToWellvyl
OneOfAKind. Happy father's day to this man. He taught me action. He taught me discipline. He taught me appreciation. He taught me optimism. He taught me caution. He taught me risk. He taught me loyality. He taught me humility. He taught me when to bend. He taught me when to stand. He taught me kindness. He taught me meaning. He taught me passion. He taught me rest. He taught me My father is my best friend in the whole wide world and I wouldn't be here today, doing what I do. I owe him everything. #iloveyoudad #fathersday #startuplife #myfather #founder #ceo #WEisGreaterThanME #NotYourAverageCEO
ChallengeIsGood. Imagine for once all the complaining that you do. About how hard things are. About how difficult things are. About how frustrating life is. About how things don't go according to plan. About all the adversity that one faces. Now for another moment realize that you've gotten to the other side of all those problems all of those challenges all of those moments that thing's seems bleak and impossible. Yet you overcame them. You figured out how. You figure it out who you were and who you weren't, what you needed what you didn't need, and you figured things out. You learned you have the ability to handle what you didn't think you could. You realize that you're stronger than you knew. And you found new abilities that came out of these moments. And these moments that will come again you're prepared for and will not be stopped by mere obstacles. Because of these challenges, you are who you are and able to do what you do. Be proud of the opposition you've had in your life and more importantly thankful. Even grateful. You are the lead character in your life and no one else can fit in those shoes. Now be there with patience and kindness for others as they go through their own Journeys and face their own challenges as an example of what it takes to get to the other side of a challenge. #WEisGreaterThanME #TogetherWeCan #TakeMeToWellvyl #NotYourAverageCEO #challenge #faceobstacles #overcomingobstacles #startuplife #founder #ceomindset #ceotalk #ceo #socialwellness #sociallywell #lifehacks

PutDownTheBrush&Paint. There's a time to work. There's a time to play. There's plenty of time to be dedicated and do the right thing and make shit happen. Some of the dopest things manifest out of thin air. Some of the coolest things take lots of work dedication and commitment and sacrifice. And yet sometimes things manifest out of thin air and are sooo good. Probably because some magic happen while there was fun happening. So on this Saturday I put down the brush and let go. It's time to smile and enjoy everything. I'm going to let down the hair turn it up and have a f****** awesome time. Sending you all much love and peace. #TakeMeToWellvyl #FunTime #PoolParty #NotYourAverageCEO #funfitness #socialwellness #thehealthyfunclub #healthyfunshittodo #deathabsandsmoothies
KindnessAboveAll. Be kind to yourself Be kind to your friends. Be kind to your family. Be kind to your enemies. Be kind to your colleagues Be kind to your students. Be kind to those who hurt you. . It's a sad truth, but often most people mistake kindness for weakness. Let me be clear, there is a very clear distinction between the two. I used to suffer from this condition with other people. You tell people how to treat you and how to mistreat you. If you don't take action when someone manipulates you or takes advantage of you because you're being nice, generous, considerate, understanding, a human being, you well be walked all over. It sad that there are people out there who will do this, but take note that your silence gives them consent. So f*** that s*** forget that noise in any other cliche you want to say or throw it this whole idea of people taking advantage of kind and nice people thinking that they are weak. Cuz in the long run taking advantage of someone is not nice, it is not kind, it is shity behavior. How we treat our fellow human beings on this planet is all we truly have left for Hope of a better future. People see through your lies people see through your manipulations, and sometimes we give you enough rope for you to do just what you need to do to yourself. Kindness is motherfuking gangster, you know why, cuz those who practice kindness have taken some s*** and It Ain't Easy to continue the practice amongst selfish beings, but it just ain't in us to be selfish. So kindness shall rule my world and my behaviour towards every one out there. You are allowed to have your voice, your point of view, your way of being, your hate, your love, and anything else you want; i dont have to agree nor accept it. I only need to step in when it's going to harm any other human being. Then I'll show you how kind I truly am with a fist of furry. #NotYourAverageCEO #kindnessisgangsta #WEisGreaterThanMe #founder #startuplife #wellnessnyc #fitnessnyc #socialwellness #nyc
FumblingWithLife. I never really fit in. I tried really hard, but I never felt like it just clicked. You know when you look around at everyone & it appears as if they just know what to do & it just comes so easy so them. It really affected me throughout my entire life. I always kind of felt like I was on my own. Like when I've seen things that shouldn't be the way they are & yet they're just allowed to be. I couldn't just, fit in, & accept to ignore my burning feelings on the inside. Everything I have I've had to work my ass off at & just when things were coming easy to me in bodybuilding, the universe wanted to teach me a lesson & injured my body. However it really was testing my emotional stability, my psychology, my willingness to learn, my willingness to let go of my plan, & just accept the lesson that I need to learn. What I've got from this is that you can look at the world in many different ways & ultimately decide how you want to live the rest of your life. You can look at everything from a scarcity type of mindset, where your perspective is competition & not enough to go around. Someone else's success takes away from yours & you have to victor over them. Then there's this other perspective. This fruitful way of looking at things. Where we look at the future can we pick our true north & we head in that direction always, bc one thing that I've learned from the universe is that there will always be another opportunity. There will always be a sunny day, there will always be a snowfall, there will always be a friendly face, there will always be a tragic moment, there will always be pain on the other side of love. This world, realm, that we exist in, it's filled with infinite wonder, bc there is so much to go around and the universe is infinite. We've just scratched the surface of different dimensions & otherworldly planes. We're just awakening it's all the magical possibilities there are for us. This is my age of #abundance Where I love who I am, & who I am not, & what I'm doing, & what I cannot do, whether I'm alone or united w many, there is #abun #dance #NotYourAverageCEO #founder #TakeMeToWellvyl #fuckit #igotthis #love #kindness #startuplife #
DontForgetToSmile. Life is wonderous. One moment it can be exciting another it can be frightening. One moment you're in love and the next you're in loss. One day it's rainy another day it's sunny. . We win some. We lose some. We hit it big. We risk it all. We do nothing. We learn, we teach and then we learn. We collect everything and then we give it all away. We stress ourselves out with invisible time-lines and unrealistic goal-lines. Yet we know good things that are solid take time to grow and flourish. . It's all man-made and designed to steer us in a direction to what we're told. We think we're the center of the universe and then we realize we don't even show up. Then we realize we show up to who it matters. There's no sense stressing about life. The facts are in. No one has ever made it out alive. . No matter what happens, remember we are loved, we are cared about, and we are misunderstood. . Control what You can which is our own emotions and understandings. Be good to life and those You touch. Because that is what people will truly remember. . The love you were... #WEisGreaterThanME #NotYourAverageCEO #TakeMeToWellvyl #kindness #love #empathy #compassion #communication #leadership #leadwithlove #relentless #courageousness #fortitude
SomeStrongFeelings. Life can be hard. Relationships will suck if you let them. Pain is real; it makes you learn and grow. Loneliness hurts. Pretentiousness is shitty. Good vibes don't exist forever. It's work to love yourself. Diligence and commitment rules. Self reflection and doing the work regularly can change anything. It's definitely always possible to turn frowns into smiles. A thank you always goes further than money. It's not always light and fluffy good times; shit gets real and difficult, always. Not everyone is allowed and that's just fuckin shitty. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder not media nor the contemporary. Everyone is still a person. How you enter anything is never ever as important as you exit the everything. People will only remember how you made the feel the last time you interacted. #TakeMeToWellvyl #NotYourAverageCEO #WEisGreaterThanME #hadtosayit #GoldenRule #kindness #love #empathy #WeaponsOfMassAffection #nycwell #nycfit #nycfitpro #fitfam #compassion #startuplife #startupnyc #newyorkstartup #founder #ceo #communication #leadership #leadwithlove
EverthingCan&WillChange. Often times ego just gets in the way and we think we know everything. We think that we have the Midas touch or we're smarter than others who seem clumsey or not experienced. There's something wonderful about being clumsy or inexperienced, it's often an open mind. . Don't let your experience become your bias. It's not easy to keep training your mind to treat every situation with abundance and infinite possibilities. In a world where you can't control media, emotions, politics, sentiment, time, geography, technology, that seems awfully ridiculous to think you now and yet not occupied every position and perspective and vantage point. . Do you have everything that you need to know at your fingertips constantly being fed to you? Are you completely immersed in every aspect of what you're doing, where you've allowed your body to be a tuning fork and your mind to be an antenna. . Do you accept the metaphysical world? (That's rhetorical.) You should treat everything, always, uniquely and without bias. . There is always a better way to do something; there is always a different way of doing something; there is always someone looking to prove something right or wrong; and as sure as right and wrong will change, it is always changing from perspective, which is always subjective. . The only thing you can control, always, is how you see the world and whether you react to it or respond to it. Be open, Be kind, Be fair, Be loving, Be accepting. . Anyone can teach you and anyone can replace you if you don't appreciate the life you have and opportunities the universe give us all. . Remember; It can all vanish at any moment and the fact is the everything will forever change. #TakeMeToWellvyl #WEisGreaterThanMe #DontGoAtItAlone #NotYourAverageCEO #GoldenRule #kindness #love #empathy #appreciation #quantum #nycwell #nycfit #nycfitpro #fitfam #compassion #startuplife #startupnyc #newyorkstartup #founder #communication #leadership #youneverknow #perspective #foreverchange #ittakesavillage #noiinteam #noyoudontknow
Surrender. It's liberating when you just let go. Often times we're worried about where we've got to be and what we've got to do and where we should be and what we should be doing. We drive ourselves absolutely crazy. Enough! . When you lose yourself in your purpose and just being and just allow the magic to happen. You never know what the universe will provide; and trust me the universe will provide. Especially when you just know; and can feel it in your bones, in the air, and in everyone around you. It's also interesting that we can't measure or quantify love, but we all universally know; regardless of what culture, creed, race, or geography; agree that it exists and know it. . There's a magical moment when we can just surrender to doing the work we're meant to do and when the universe (or God) shows up and we transcend to another dimension. Where time and space evaporates. The energy there is awe-inspiring and so powerful, that we can do so much... We can inspire others without even knowing what kind of an impact we can have. Threw this we can create the world we love and want to participate in, as well as share with everyone everywhere. . I challenge you to let the muses guide you and the energy of the universe flow through you, without you ego and brimming and overflowing with love compassion and empathy. We can do anything we can imagine. #TakeMeToWellvyl @wellvyl #WEisGreaterThanMe #DontGoAtItAlone #NotYourAverageCEO #GoldenRule #kindness #love #WeaponsOfMassAffection #nycwell #nycfit #socialwellness #liveyourpurpose #fitfam #compassion #startuplife #startupnyc #newyorkstartup #founder #communication #empathy #techno #surrender #leadership #leadwithlove @juliagovor
SomeWords. I look back at this year and I smile. So much has been done, yet so much has to be done. I'm not going to offer you any sentimental bullshit clique as a new years post. I'm going to tell you that if you want to make change, do it, and stop talking about it and just start. Start anywhere and put one foot in front of the other. It comes with a payment of sacrifice and discipline. If you need permission, theb give it to yourself. You're the only one who can tell you what you deserve it or do not. Let your actions speak louder than words. For everyone uses words; but few show real action. Learn to be your best friend; face confrontation; help someone with no motivating factors; don't give up because it got hard. The road you chose is not traveled so it's not paved and it will be bumpy. Promise. It willllll humble you. Show up every day and do the little bit that needs to be done. Be resolute in your decisions and have compassion for those who cannot. Empathy will save us. Remember to treat others the way you want to be treated. So check all your actions and think about how others receive them. Perspective is a mother F'er. It's not so cool when it happens to you. Lead by example; and great leaders follow and listen. You only get one go at this, so we know... therefore; have some fun doing it and be one kind ass polite mother F'er. Happy New Year! Goodbye 2017 Hello 2018 & infinite possibilities! #TakeMeToWellvyl #WEisGreaterThanMe #DontGoAtItAlone #NotYourAverageCEO #GoldenRule #kindness #love #WeaponsOfMassAffection #nycwell #nycfit #nycfitpro #fitfam #TakeDownHate #startuplife #startupnyc #newyorkstartup #founder #communication #leadership #leadwithlove #newyearseve #timessquare #nye2017 #nycnye #happynewyear
HistoryofCommitment. Reflecting on what I've accomplished without any attachment... I realize we're as good as what we do today and not as much as our past success stories. Show up each day and be committed to you're own beliefs. Hold true and steadfast. Be resilient and kind and most of all... accept everyone for who they are and who they are not. Most of all; don't judge without getting enough information. You don't know until you know. People will and can surprise you. Just allow the universe to present the quantum surprise.
