Today, Andrew "The Eagle" Samaniego, reported for duty at the United States Naval Academy Preparatory School at the Naval Station in Newport, Rhode Island. To say how proud I am to seemy soon accomplished a goal he set out for himself over couple years ago it has been amazing.

As we took my son to the airport I had such mixed emotions. As a proud parents to his accomplishments to coming to realization he would no longer be part of my everyday day life like he has been for all these years.

My heart broke as his sister, Bella and my wife, said goodbye. 

The last time we all felt this way was when our beloved, "King" passed away.

But the sadness will pass and we will always be proud of, Andrew.

 

 

Grand Canyon

This past holiday weekend we had the opportunity to go on a family trip to the Grand Canyon with Redlands Boy Scout Troop 11. It was the very first time personally and first time for my entire family to see this amazing wonder of the world.

Word cannot describe how beautiful this place is, and I know it is one the things you need to see in your lifetime.

 

My son will be going to Naval Academy

My son received his "Big Fat Envelope" on Valentines day.  He will be attending the United States Naval Academy as part of class 2019 upon completion of prep program..

He received a letter from Dean of Admission that he will be part of United States Naval Academy Preparatory School for class of 2015. 

As a parent I cannot be any prouder for his accomplishment for the hard work he did the last 4 years trying to achieve this goal.

Escaping The Corporate Cubicle

Have you ever felt like you were trapped?

Trapped in the corporate cubicle…trapped in a job you may not enjoy…trapped doing something that consumes your life and is not getting you to your goals?

One of mentors shared this story recently….freedom

"I worked in corporate consulting in a forty-five story office building in New York City. I thought I had it made. I worked 60 hours a week, got 15 days of vacation a year and had a nice manager title, nice benefits and great people I worked with…

…but I felt trapped. I felt like the goals I really wanted in life were slipping away as I worked my tail off each week in the cubicle.

I had an aha-moment the day I shared my dream with one of my corporate mentors, who patted me on the shoulder and said: 'The only security you will ever have in life is what you create for yourself'.

Reflecting on his powerful comment as I walked back to my cubicle, I understood that to achieve what I wanted long term, I had to prepare and condition myself mentally and emotionally, toughen up my belief and confidence, and bullet-proof my vision with the right skill sets and action steps for this new business and life direction."

So how do you escape the corporate cubicle?

It all starts with a desire like my mentor above.

Then it takes ACTION.

You actually have to make a plan to get yourself out of that Rat Race and follow up with it.

Here is a list of some of the things you should have on your "Action Plan"

  1. Find an opportunity or business that you are going to start. Do your research and make sure that it is something you will enjoy doing but not only that…something that actually makes money. Too many times people embark on opportunities because it sounds fun…but they soon find the financial rewards were not as great as they thought in the beginning.Look at other successful people in that opportunity and find out what they are doing and how much they are making and importantly what they had to do to get there. Not all opportunities are equal. Pick one that is growing and will give you the opportunity to rise up with it.
  2. Create a business plan. Put realistic goals and expectations. You are in this for the long run. With a good opportunity it may take you a few years or more to get to the point where you can quit that job forever…but realize when you do YOU ARE FREE! So make a long-term business plan. People who fail, usually don't have a business plan and they think success should be instant.
  3. Fill your mind with POSITIVE information and teachings. Read Thank and Grow Rich and As a Man Thinketh. Listen to the teachings of Wayne Dyer, Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, Earl Nightengale, Denis Waitley, and Dale Carnegie to name a few. Let them become your coaches and mentors.
  4. TAKE MASSIVE ACTION! Decide what you want to do and GO FOR IT! Find the time in your life even if you are super busy. Work on your new business during your lunch hour, early in the morning, late at night. Find the time. You can do it because you know the rewards will be worth it.A few years of time sacrifice will be worth it when you break out of the cubicle and live a life of freedom!

It is very possible to reach your goals and escape the Rat Race if you really want it. Sure there will be bumps in the road and it may not always turn out exactly like you wanted and you may have to change courses a few time.

…but if you stay the course, work hard, and never quit… You will be rewarded.

Remember the day you walk away from your job and are carrying your box of personal items out to your car…not because you were fired or laid off…

…but because you QUIT!

(Don't forget to have someone take pictures of you with your box of stuff as you walk to your car…it will be part of your story!)
