So you're saying put yourself you know in and start like free-flowing with what what would you really like what you like. Free flowing the creative flow to to have the freedom to be able to you. Go there exactly so fine and a lot of times. It's like when you were a little boy or little girl but was that that brought you so much joy. Yeah what was that and so to really think about all of those passions right and then to overlay that with. What are you really graded? Hey doing well like free which you did when you were seven is that you were smiling and helping the fishermen in and that was natural for you. So you've you've just transformed it into another venue another avenue yes so I also wanted to be a veterinarian so in my in in my ideas of passionate if I actually wrote this out before actually became it would've been. I wanted to be a veterinarian because I wanted to help out because I believe that they they connect us to our spirit in a way that tolls and they're very young so I wanted to be a veterinarian and you know all of these passions that I had and then I would overlap that. What are you awesome? Excellent doing so that you can provide great customer service and what you what do you don't WanNa be mediocre at something. That's not fun but to be really great at it and then overlap that with the reward so turning that into a business this is a part time business doing it for someone else. You know. Inner Rewards Wall as you know helping their PD Bank of course but when you're in her he's it's pure joy which is fun food which does amazing work the therapy. They're saving old chair contaminated that there's there you're there zone and nothing you can take that away from you. So tell me other than being laid off of your sky scraper managerial position. was there any other time in your life that you really had a challenge that you if you don't mind sharing in I stay there who've girl. Aw Take Girl Emma you work in a girlfriend. I own a doggy. It there's been a couple of instances that have been very challenging One of them was when my life was endangered. Wedneday coming home from work. Gosh and so I was victim of a crime basically and I think that puts your yourself and your life in perspective real fast. Doesn't it real fast and it was actually a gift in disguise because since that time every day amazing It's a joy to be alive. It's what can you do that was very traumatic for for you. It was interesting. Yeah it was. I have a martial arts background so I was actually a calm during the situation but I know what it it feels like to one day. Be here and Wendy. Maybe not being here so so now I just want to inspire people to do their passion. Now you no. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Oh my goodness Yeah it makes things important. You know the things that are important become what what you want to focus on the things that are more important really just kind of sit. You said there were a couple. And that's that's one in so you. Would you mind sharing another one that you know I just I just so the viewers know I mean I haven't shared all mine challenges and if I told them all the challenge I think what could you survive all all this but you know there again. It's the spiritual faith that you have and I know you have it because I the first time I met you it's it's just fusing out of you. So that Peer Spirit so that if you have another because it isn't just you know I mean I can say so you just have it but I know that you've gone through some things to get you there and everybody has challenges. Everyone does you know I the second challenge. I'm GonNa lump sum just the loss of loved ones. You mean actually dying or loved ones yes loved ones who have passed based on and going through. That has been really challenging and once I realized that will how would they like to be He. You know like it was almost as the grief was deep and I work through it and then it's like well what would they like me to be They they wouldn't to to live my passion enjoy. I was just GonNa ask you what you mean by that but they they don't want you to grieve but it's a natural human thing to do is his greave. They're both important. Yeah if if if one pushes away the hard stuff to look at this it's GonNa keep coming up and hill you face face it. You know. That's one thing with you know when I talk about is You know we we have to face our fears in in the face. We you know if if you don't deal with the challenges upfront and sometimes you may not be ready and but if you keep stuffing away the emotional things that come up. It's it's unhealthy. You know because if you deal with your emotional challenges is that you have head on then you can get through it and you. You're free of it and see. That's the whole thing. Is that once you deal with your free so so you can move to another level of having that spiritual freedom have solar is let allowing the challenge and that feeling a a Lotta people stuff their feelings in and you know I'm I'm even coming more to living from the heart because we're such shem mental everybody's in the mind all the time and you know it's it's wonderful to have that th the mind heart balance that you know it's like live from your heart I know you do. I have no doubt that's why I wanted you on this show too. Because you know I don't Steph often you know the pain because the pain if you stuff in. It's GonNa come out sooner or later either in health issues you know I mean they say you know cancers cancer is caused by by anger and repressed resentment you know I believe Louise Hay has all those answers and so it's like don't you WanNa be free. Let's be free to be who we really are meant to being everybody's unique wonderful spiritual being being gene. And that's why you're here. Yeah going through. Pain is painful but once you go through it right and you come out of it. It's like you can see again. It's like clarity and it's only our own minds that can hold us back and I'm -solutely and you you know and and I think once you get to that point of really you know free in yourself then you listen to your higher self that I to me. I don't like to say this but a lot of people are in their lower self because they won't allow themselves to feel. I think it's so important Gordon to come from the heart and I realize it even more every day I get. I'm going to be talking about more from the heart and especially those. CEO's on Wall Street street they don't come from the heart at all. I mean I'm sure that there are they not everybody. I don't WANNA say everybody because that's not true and that's not fair for me to say that because I don't no all of them I don't know I know few bit is like you know. Come from the heart from the heart and be free and live your year. You have of your unique spirit. I have mine even flash has his own spirits yeah. We don't know how no longer going to be here. We have a choice to to move on letting go of the past is challenging at times and but let's freeing freeze to move forward but it's you know it's loving yourself unconditionally as I keep saying loving yourself unconditionally. Really and freeing yourself so you can be all that you can be. Yes I mean to tell you the truth as I've been looking more through this like what brings me joy and just bringing more. Four of that is my wife. It's like I'm almost fifty years old and I feel like I'm getting younger things and you you you know the I know. I've I heard this analogy that. You know the onion peeling you know and I don't know what the core of the onion that's not really most beautiful flagrant fragrant. But but it's like you know you just peel the layers off. You know because I and no one has a perfect household. No one has perfect rearing during perfect parents. Nobody's perfect you know so when you can free yourself. Yeah it's remember Michael Angelo. Someone asks the famous sculptor sculptor. Michelangelo when you were carving David what you know what occurred during that process and he said I was chopped tinkering off everything that was David. Oh I like that. See The beauty. Yeah and every person has it is diamond in the rough or whatever you want to say but and some of those chunks fall away like is that something society says that you should be doing for your career. Is it something something your family says. You should have been doing for your career. Is that something. That's on the news that says Oh you should become an ex. Because they're making lots of money you know it it's really about what do you want. You know it's funny that you should say that because I remember growing up I worked with my family business as well and I and my father always said what so-and-so's number and I always remembered the numbers I have a number of brain and so I just thought well okay. I'm I am into numbers so I I've been in accounting finance but but it wasn't my true true passion. I can do it it but I also wanted to master it because I'm dyslexic so I wanted to master that so you coming from a high school that that I actually actually flunked speech. You wouldn't know it but see it's like getting through. That's a good example. I you know. I was oblivious to the teacher. Sure I it was really difficult. Because she didn't like my brother and a few years behind him but it was like I was afraid of her. I as I was too shy but then I made it up. GotTa be good. It's it's like you to get through that challenge. I mean it's like stage H.. Fright you know. It's the same thing but you know now it's real comfortable because it takes practice no matter what you do. It takes practice just like communication it takes practice you know. We don't have good communication skills. I think it's a learned learned Learned expression yes I you know to be able to communicate effectively. You know without too much emotion or not enough emotion in you know but it just takes practice anyway. I'm going off but I it's it's like the spiritual I know that you are from your spiritual core your thank you. Thank you say or anything else. You'd love to share with about yourself and how you have come to where you you are in your life. Well I'm in the midst of creating pets world tastes right now and do you have Jane. GOODELL's Like endorsement Minton's after I photographed her. I asked her if I hope you know if I could help her fundraise first of all for her her amazing institute she has one hundred thousand kids in her kids club and for pets world. He's also creating a kids club so I really warning to lake envisioning. How can I help nonprofits around the world? How can we help the environment? How can we help animal shelters? How can we help? Animal assisted therapy and so it is my joy to photograph animals. Helping people in amazing ways like There were some breast cancer patients that went to a horse facility that I photographed recently. The mental mental illnesses came up. A veterans wins her learning from the animals. Wow autistic kids are learning from the animals. So there's a lot of healing going. Oh that's what I want to bring out with. Pets real appeases funding these amazing nonprofits. So Oh wow so how. How are you taking steps to do that? So the steps to taking that is finding the right. You know the people who love animals. So I'm totally open. Anyone who loves animals can fleas contact me and and I can show them that. We're GONNA have like pets for world peace ambassadors. They can nominate their own animals of roles piece in a letter a pets were piece. So they'll have. They'll have their their F- their animals photographed in in publications that they could being publications like it'd be pets world peace game. Oh that's right you're working on a game. Yes tell us about that. Well I really think that the the children of today really love to be engaged in games now. Many of them are pretty violent. You know and they're doing really well L. financially but I want to create a game that brings kids from all over the world and they can. They can enter their own hats. As is the pets world peace ambassadors and the pets can fly in over the world and help certain endangered species. They might go to the Arctic and find the polar bears they might go to Hawaii and see the endangered sea turtles. They might go to a myriad of places and go on adventures to help save the environment which ultimately saves us as the planet. It's all together. It's all integrated or integral absolutely as well. Well that's exciting. Yes so when. Do you think you'll have your game out. Going next year. Is Our our launch times. Okay very excited nine and I'm working with the SPCA humane societies. I'll be calling Dr Goodell's institute and so they do. They know about it already. Some of them do you okay. And they're very excited because what I've seen over the years of photography you do a lot of pro bono work nonprofits. Yeah and a lot of them have just the very minimal sustainable income coming through so I wanted to create something finding exciting that we'd be educational and that would create funding funding for them for a long time. Oh that's great. Yeah wow well. Is there any other little nuggets. And you would like to share with our audience interviewers. I just encourage people to really go deep inside and every morning even it's just five minutes a day just to keep running journal or an art book whatever it is and just start collecting what what brings joy way. Even if it's cutting out pictures of bluewater in Hawaii or something like that or whether it's yoga or in our mind thinks in visual terms so that's why also like photography Oh it's like capturing in essence that will never like a split second but but that it conjures up so much you know and that reminds me. You're saying the pictures and it's and it's and I've done this. Several Times is doing vision board. That's important to to put all those photos on the things that you want that you're str- you know that you're you're going towards the it will pull you these beautiful Vacation places or places like I WANNA go to Monte PUCCI peach you when one of these days as you know and I haven't gone there and You know there's a special places all over new visions and whenever yeah so you know not just keep keep your dream alive. Yes never keep that fire burning may go down low but just stuck it keeps stoking the fires the fire and then once you create the Vision Border Journal or the the art book yeah then create inspired action lists because it takes you have to. There's a being state which is beautiful but then the doing the inspired action go out there and that's the hardest part for some people. Yeah you know but when you when you let go your fear and you stay take that one step and it only takes one step at a time. You don't have to take major steps but one step at a time so you'll gone it you've got it you'll eventually reach your goal. If you take a step day yeah I mean that's all you can you will yes Lori.
