I was asked yesterday if I would speak at a Fifth grade graduation here in Las Vegas. I am honored and excited about the opportunity to share some of the experiences and knowledge I have gained through my life.
I have always had a passion for helping others and a strong belief that when provide our youth with an understanding of how the true fundamentals in life work; we all prosper.
When I say true fundamentals I am talking about:
• communication - how we communicate with ourselves and others to achieve our dreams or make changes when we are hurt, stuck or lost.
• health - understanding how our body and mind works and even more importantly how they work TOGETHER to create a blueprint of health that we depend on to guide us through our lives to make choices that empower, protect and advance us as a person and species.
• passion - every talks about the 'WHY' Discover why you want to do something, what excites you etc. And this is vital. But, we have to step back and look at the really big picture. We need to truly understand that life is not a process of coping or just surviving. It's about advancing; it's about happiness; it's about peace; and love.
This means we need to recognize that the decisions we make each day determine the person we will become and the challenges we either face or don't face. And the sooner we learn to wield that sword, the more prosperous, healthy and advantageous our life and our journeys become.
So, as I sat down to decide which bullets to cover with the 2014 graduating class of this Las Vegas fifth grade and the hundreds of parents and teachers, I began to think; wow the world has changed drastically since I was in their shoes.
We now have a global economy and instant access to any information you want and in many cases any material desire you want. Kids are dealing with shootings as schools; teachers and students having physical/romantic relationships; It's no longer a stress about having the newest pair Air Jordans for $150.00, it's whether you have the new iPhone for $600.00.
The world has changed and our economy has changed. It's time we change with it!
It's time we start doing the things we say we should do and taking action to make a difference where it matters. And it's up to all of us. It's not enough to say, well I am one person and what can I do or someone else is better equipped. It starts with you!
And the first step is very easy....find passion in your life!
If you are stressed or asking yourself 'why do I feel this way' or "how did I get here?" You are living an obligated life and therefore the quality of your life is suffering.
Find passion! Figure our what you love to do that excites you; that challenges you and that you will get up every day looking forward to doing even when times are tough. That is a life worth living.
And when you find PASSION, you will begin to think differently. You will want to be positive and help others, because you understand that this action fuels your passion and your drive and your success!
Start today! This weekend take a half and hour and make a plan to put passion in your life at least 30 minutes each day. Whether it's starting to write that book you always wanted to write or if it's reading a book you have put off for a year because you were too busy. I have a secret for you... you are never too busy; you are disorganized and/or haven't taken the time to make a plan for your life.
You are the most important person in your life because if you don't feel your mind, body and soul, you won't have bandwidth to cherish the people and things you desire in your life.
I hope that at least one person reading this today will have heard this for the 'right' number of times and that it changes your life forever because (here's another secret) if you take the first step, your life will begin to change; to improve; to give you peace of mind.
Today I am making a difference! I am doing everything I can to change someones life. Whether it's you reading this post or one of the children listening to my speech. I am committed to being extraordinary and to seeing, living and creating a world around me that I want to live in NOW!
May today be the day you Graduate to a Personal Higher Education and strive to be the top of your class!

Brett Baughman's insight:
Each day we wake up and run through a series of conscious and unconscious processes. You brush your teeth, you drink your coffee (or high alkalized water lol) And you start the cycle that you do each day.
WELL...if you were to put a percentage to the success of your process what would it be? Does what you are doing each day produce the results you want 50% of the time? 75%? 10%?
Most people I have worked with report less than 40% success in the way & quality to the life they are living now.
So why do we keep doing it? The answer is FEAR!
Fear of failure, Fear of not doing it right, Fear that I won't know what to do, Fear that this stuff doesn't work for me or I can't change...I don't have time, I don't have the money to invest in myself.
What I have to say to that is:
1. "Fear is simply the inability to create a picture in your mind of yourself successfully accomplishing a goal" - Brett Baughman
What this means is that your mind at some level is focusing on the problem not the solution. This is a skill that can be improved and harnessed to create success. This is why visualizing improves your motivation and focus.
2. Does it work, will it work? Yes. The process works 100% of the time WHEN the client believes in themselves. Success will not happen without belief. And the belief has to come first. Whether it's a small step or a paramount change in your behaviors, you will FEEL BETTER and enhance the quality of your life
3. Time/ Money - Really? You don't have time to stop feeling bad or to learn how to make more money or simplify a challenging process in your life? This fear is generally a lack of belief that one can change. And if you have that doubt, cruise on over to my website and read/watch some testimonials. Everyone starts out thinking this and quickly 'changes their mind'
- Money - If you do your research and you find a coach/ therapist that is experienced and has credibility (education, credentials, years of experience, reviews/testimonials, a background of success) then the money you spend will bring you financial benefit. I know personally that when I work with clients we incorporate building and improving ones business in order to enrich and simplify the clients life. And we do. Money is created through the following behaviors: 1. Passion
4. Motivation/ Energy
That is exactly what a powerful and successful coach will teach you how to do efficiently and effectively. And when you not only understand but integrate these learnings into your psychology...the world is yours for the creating!
So...I ask, what or whose Game Plan are you using? What are you selling to yourself each day to tell yourself that you are going to feel better; you are going to make more money so you can get out of debt; you will get in shape; you will find that special someone; you will get your business off the ground?
Every great leader, athlete, musician & business owner will tell you that they did it with the help of a Coach, a Mentor, a Teacher.
Are you ready to start living the life you deserve now?

An explosive anomaly lights up Southern Hemisphere Galaxy NGC 1566. On the the evening of September 18th from North America, Slooh will broadcast live views of this bright type II supernova candidate from Slooh Observatory at the Pontificia Universidad Católica De Chile (PUC).
Thursday, September 18th Starts: 9:00 PM PDT / 12:00 AM EDT (9/19) / 04:00 UTC (9/19) International times here: goo.gl/ogI4Mg Watch live on Slooh.com or on our Livestream tab on Facebook
This brilliant spot of light appears close to the central bulge of the galaxy, and was discovered just a week ago by the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae, or ASASSN (assassin), which gives this supernova candidate the killer moniker of ASASSN-14ha. A fitting name for such an explosively destructive object! #SloohAssassin
Says Berman, "Supernovae are the most violent events in the universe. And among the most useful, since their brightness can help pin down the distance to their parent galaxy. In this case, a rather violent and gorgeous spiral galaxy that's not too terribly far away has just had a star explode not in its spiral arms, which is the usual neighborhood for such cataclysms, but almost smack at the core. This combination of extreme conditions and odd circumstances makes it a riveting and worthy event for SLOOH's real-time monitoring. This should be an exciting broadcast."
Start time:Thursday, September 18th at 9:00 PM PDT / 12:00 AM EDT (9/19) / 04:00 UTC (9/19)
