Life Balance Moment: Cats in the Cradle

There is a song that every time i hear it, it brings tears to my eyes. That song is “Cats in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin. It is a song about something that happens too often in our society today. Our families, and especially our children are attention deprived while we work harder and harder.

My mission is that the song Cats in the Cradle never becomes a reality for any father. In this video, I sing the main verses and break down the song and also explain my journey through it. (Post continues after the video)

The reality is, this does not have to be the way it is. We can incorporate our children into our work (see LinkedIn article). We can have family athletic activities like Karate for our exercise. We just need to make sure that we are conscious of our choices. There is always something else that needs to be done. Work will always be there. Your children will be grown and gone before you know it. I know this from personal experience. I feel I looked up from my computer and my daughters were suddenly young women, no longer the image of the little girls in my mind. My sons are half way to adults already.

So please, step away from the desk. Put down the phone. Turn off the clamor of unimportant things for your attention.

Say hello to your family. Let them know how much you love them with what they really need. Your attention!

The Epiphany – Why I created the Life Triad

My epiphany happened many years ago in Denver Colorado. I wanted to share with you why I do what I do. How the Life Triad come to exist.

Enjoy.

 

Here is the transcript:

Hello.

Today, I wanna tell you why are we here? Why do I do what I do? What’s the reason that I created my Life Triad system?

I wanna take you back to around 2000, 2001. Now, this was a time when BlackBerrys were still a new thing and the 24 hour email cycle was becoming a real phenomenon. I was working in the corporate world and it was 24/7 all the time. My boss would send me an email at four in the morning. He’d get an answer back at 4:05. I’d send him one at three in the morning. I’d get an answer back at 3:02. It was just, it was crazy, it was all the time, always on that corporate pressure cooker.

Now, I was doing fairly well for myself. I was the director of internet technologies. I was an important guy and people knew who I was. I was making good money. Everything in my career was doing really really well. Now, for the rest of my life, not so much and I realized this one day when I had what I call my epiphany and I had flown out to Denver, Colorado and I wasn’t out there enough to have my own office so they set me up in another VP’s office. Little table in front of the windows. I set up my laptop and going through the three to four hundred emails that would come in overnight that were not worth waking up at four in the morning for and I’m going through and I’m like, I need some coffee.

So I go out and I get my cup of coffee and I come back in and I just stopped in the doorway because I’m on the 11th floor in downtown Denver and I don’t know how many of you have been in Denver, seen the Rocky Mountains or just do a web search for the images. They’re beautiful. But here, wall to wall, was this gorgeous panoramic snow-capped mountain, crystal clear blue sky postcard right in front of me and I hadn’t seen it. I mean, I was working on my computer. All I had to do was that (looking up) and I had missed it and it hit me. I physically felt ill because here was this gorgeous view, this picture postcard of God’s beauty on earth and I hadn’t seen it. I was so busy with my little man-made box and everything is not good that I hadn’t seen this beautiful thing that said everything is good.

So I closed my computer, I sat back and I drank that cup of coffee and I started reflecting on my life and what was I doing, why was I here and I realized that while my career was in good shape, I was making good money, my family was falling apart, my marriage was falling apart. I didn’t get any time with my kids. My physical body was going to, I mean, I used to have hair. I mean, come on, really. But all of the important parts of my life were in shambles but I was making good money. No.

So I determined at that point that I need to fix this, that I have to find a way to have balance in my life. Now, I want the success. In today’s world, you have to have that success but I also wanted to have the other parts of life. Kind of going off a phrase of Zig Ziglar, I wanted more of the stuff that money can buy and all of the stuff that money can’t buy. So that’s why I created my Life Triad system. It’s taking my experience as a software developer and my experience with systems and the way that things work and creating a way, a simple, easy to use, very replicatable system for creating life balance and creating that success that I so wanted and was so chasing. So that’s why we’re here today.

I thank you for indulging me and listening to why I’m here and I wanna leave you with this final thought. I had something occur to me the other day. I turned on the radio and it was, Cat’s in the Cradle was playing. “Cat’s in the cradle with the silver spoon” and it dawned on me that my mission with my business is to make sure that that song never comes true for the people that I help. I want you to have a fantastic life and I don’t want you to miss any of the really good parts because you’re just chasing a dollar. So thank you for listening and I will talk to you again soon. Thank you.

Live Your Third Power Identity

What is your Third Power Identity?

Your Third Power Identity is the image you have of yourself. The one that can and will achieve all the goals you have set forward in your life mapping process.

Once you set a goal for yourself, you need to start imagining what it will be like when you achieve it. You need to see it, and feel it. See yourself as the type of person that can and will do whatever you need to do to make it happen. You need to remind yourself every day, multiple times a day about your Third Power Identity. Make it a mantra. See yourself clearly as the person you want to be, and know that you ARE THAT PERSON already.

I want you, and yes, I really mean you, to Live, Work, and Play to the Third Power!

Here is my audio clip for Third Power Identity!

Transcript of the Audio:

What is your Third Power Identity? What is it that makes you excited?

When you have your dreams and goals mapped out, and the things that you really want to accomplish in your mind. Who do you have to be in order to reach those goals, and to be the kind of person that has those dreams and accomplishes those things. That is what I call, your Third Power Identity. It’s who is the person that’s going to achieve all of those goals, and you need to be constantly thinking to yourself, and thinking of yourself, as that person, it’s your Third Power Identity.

I am the kind of person that’s going to achieve these goals. I am the kind of person that’s doing the steps that I need to do, in order to reach those goals. I’m doing what I need to do in order to have what I want, and I am the kind of person that can do those things, and I am the kind of person that will do whatever it takes to reach those goals. That is my Third Power Identity, and I want you to have that same conviction.

Find out what it is you really want out of life. Map out the steps to get there, and then know, that you are that person. That you have a Third Power Identity, that will take you through all of the difficult problems that you’re going to face, all of the difficult times, through the drudge work that’s necessary to get it done. You have an identity, your Third Power Identity, the power through all of the roadblocks that are in front of you, and you will reach your goal, that is my dream for you. That is why I do what I do, is to help you reach the heights that you can reach, because I want you to live, work and play to the third power, like the high achiever that you are. And that’s why I do what I do.

Introduction to the Life Balance Triad

The Life Balance TriadLife Balance Triad

The Foundation of the Life Triad is Life Balance Triad.  This is the basis for all our endeavors. We can never achieve any permanent level of greatness or success without having the solid foundation that Life Balance will bring to our lives.

Let’s break the Life Balance Triad down into its component parts.

Life Balance Triad - Self Mastery HighlightedFoundation – Self Mastery

The Foundation of the Life Balance Triad is Self Mastery. To achieve anything, we must first master ourselves. No goals or dreams can ever come true without the foundation of our own lives being strong. We need to have a philosophical base for our goals, we need the knowledge of how to get what we want, and the physical stamina to keep working towards those ends. If any of those items are lacking, we will have ourselves a lesson in frustration. These are the parts of the Self Mastery Vertex. Spiritual, Mental, and Physical


Life Balance Triad - Interpersonal HighlightedFramework – Interpersonal

The Framework of the Life Balance Triad is Interpersonal, i.e. your relationships. For me, this is the most important part of the Life Balance triad because this is where the true meaning of your life comes from. For most people the true legacy of their lives comes from here. The parts of Interpersonal are: Family, Friends, and Others (philanthropy).


Life Balance Triad - Material Prosperity HighlightedManifestation – Material Prosperity

The Manifestation of the Life Balance Triad is Material Prosperity. This is our money and our stuff. It’s all about how our money comes in, what we do with it. The parts of the Material Prosperity triad are: Finances (budget, financial statements, etc), Income (our job or business), and Expenses (what we spend our money on).

We All Struggle

We all struggle.

There are none of us that are immune to struggle. As much as we would like to avoid them, difficulties are a part of life. The more that you want from life, the more success you want, and the more you step outside of your comfort zone the more challenges you will face. This quote really sums it up.

“The greatest battle is not physical but psychological. The demons telling us to give up when we push ourselves to the limit can never be silenced for good. They must always be answered by the quiet, the steady dignity that simply refuses to give in. Courage. We all suffer. Keep going”

Graeme Fife

The first time that I read that, it really struck a chord in me because the greatest battle that we face in life is not a physical battle. It’s the battle of our mind. It’s our psychology.  The good side of this is that we can control our thoughts and our psychology. We can take steps to make sure that we’re thinking the right thoughts that are taking us in a positive direction.

This is why I do what I do. It is why I created the Life Triad System, and why I push so hard on the Success Formula. It is not only to help myself to keep following my Life Map and keep my thoughts focused on the Legacy that I want to create.  I want to help other people do that as well.

Don’t Stand Alone

This is also why I am such a huge proponent of coaching, because having that accountability partner, having that person that’s on your side when you do have the difficulties and the challenges that come up is essential. You’ve got someone there that can help you get through the challenges and to help you see that they are just temporary, and not a permanent fixture of your life. That is the true gift that accountability and that a coach can give you. It’s having that person in your corner telling you to keep going, giving you courage, letting you know that we all face challenges but that we can all get through them together.

Together we stand to never give up.
