There’s a couple of things I need to take care of today, so I won’t be able to blog like I planned to (I originally had this dope concept I was going to break down about “The Matrix,” but that’ll have to wait until I get back).

For now, check out this old video I put together from a workshop I lead back in 2008.

I’ll be in NY until Memorial Day, so for now, check out some archived jewels from the categories section.

(An excerpt from my upcoming book, Doing the Knowledge: Ascending into Action. Click the title for more…)

“You can’t play the piano, and God knows you can’t sing.
You’d better learn how to weave chairs so you can support yourself.”
~ Ray Charles’s school teacher in response
to his desire to become a recording artist.

“How long will you go on training all day in a gymnasium; living in a dream world?”
~ Arnold Schwarzenegger’s family pleading him to get a ‘real’ job.

“Liquidate the business right now and recoup whatever
cash you can. If you don’t, you’ll …

A good friend of mine asked about my upcoming book the other day (the “What’s it about?,” “When its it coming out?” kind of thing), and because it’s been a while now since I last talked about it, something told me she probably wasn’t the only person wondering.

So here’s the message I sent her in reply:

It’s called Doing the Knowledge: Ascending into Action and it’s an in-depth navigation through the principles of success, self-development and spirituality at the deepest levels…

Primarily, the book talks about how (1) all of these …

Check this out…it’s an image of what my website first looked like when I originally got started way back in 2007:

(You can check out the full page here.)

And here’s the first video I ever put up on youtube:

I’m not showing you this so you can see how far I’ve come, but so you can remind yourself that we all start somewhere.

On your path to be more successful at anything (whether that be starting a blog, beginning to play a musical instrument, improving your dating life or anything else), you want …

First, here’s the introduction to The Secret of the Shadow: The Power of Owning Your Whole Story by Debbie Ford, something I first blogged about almost a full year ago. Leave a comment below to let me know your thoughts on it…

———— Ch. 1: You & Your Story ————

“Imagine that you knew from birth that you were a master, that you were powerful beyond measure, that you possessed enormous gifts, and that all it would take to deliver these gifts to the world was the intensity of your desire.

Imagine that …

WHAT DO WOMEN WANT??? (Bryan’s Take On It…)

In the facebook world, I’ve been noticing A LOT of sisters using their status to hint at what they’d like to see in a man (or just vent about some whack experience they recently had with one), and in the real world, I KNOW how frustrated women are with men as a whole…so I decided to do something constructive: blog about it.

First up, here’s a really cute video of little girl doing her daily affirmations…if only we could all start our day like this:

But since I have a set of errands to run today (and A LOT of email to catch up on), I thought to take a quick second to introduce you to the “Categories” section you can find in the right sidebar.

I’ve been blogging seriously for a while now, so there’s a strong archive of great posts that you might of missed out on or just never got …

A few weeks ago I put up a facebook status saying:

“Five real men are greater then five-hundred children disguised in a man’s exterior…”

Now we could go in A LOT of directions with this, but for the time, let’s take it to mean that you don’t need numbers behind you to make your movement stronger, and in many cases, having numbers can actually hinder you from making any real movements to begin with…

For instance, let’s say you were driving from New York to Atlanta, and that there were two main routes …

Had an interesting discussion with a friend on Skype the other day. Check it:
(Harmonics: the instrumental to “Slippin” by DMX…)

Me: “So go ahead and shoot, but please nothing boring…if I had a quarter for every lame, straight-out-of-essence-magazine question I get asked ;)”
My Homegirl: “My question was, what is your relationship between you and your Ego?”
Me: “Oh it’s real good – we do the naughty everyday…
Alright, seriously Queen:
My ego is a tool like my physical frame…it needs to be kept healthy and developed.
The way I see it, once the ego is …

Keeping in line with yesterday’s post, here’s a couple of things I’ve been doing to step my game up on the financial tip:

1) Checking out The Simple Dollar, a blog about personal finance skills by Trent Hamm. The subtitle for the blog is “Financial Talk for the Rest of Us,” and that’s why I like checking it out…Trent builds on this in a way we can all understand, and he also incorporates a lot of basic, practical knowledge we can easily apply to our daily lives (frugality, wealth mindsets, etc.).
Right …
