Episode 035: Gratitude in Tough Times, New Brand Update and Weekly Reflection & Refocus

In the most challenging times, how grateful are you of the things that you DO have? It’s easy to be grateful when things are going well and times are good, but when about when things are going bad? I have developed the natural tendency to be grateful for everything in my life, especially when things are going bad. What’s more is that I instantly default to that state of mind when things go south. My “defense mechanism” or natural tendency/reaction to bad stuff happening is to immediately show gratitude and realize how fortunate I am to have what I have and to be alive. I think every single person on the planet has the ability to adjust their mindset towards optimism, positivity and gratitude for the things (no matter how big or small) that they do have.

New brand update: Once I receive my next wave of prototypes, likely the last week of May/first week of June 2017, I will be revealing the brand and start to walk you through my climb from a non-existent brand to something worthy of putting on Kickstarter in hopes to raise the necessary funding to launch the brand officially (~50k$). I am SO stoked to start talking about this brand and start putting the name out there. I think this particular product is really cool, and will be very useful for a number of different reasons, to a fairly specific but also large audience of people.

Due to the medical emergency and complications that I have been dealing with, my productivity has been lower than usual. I try to maintain a “business as usual” approach, no matter how bad things are. However, sometimes, that just isn’t reality. As a result, I have done considerable reflecting and refocusing, but I feel very strong about moving forward into the last week of May and ending it with a bang.
