One of the most important things we can do in life is give. Giving is where it’s at. Contribution, service and helping others is a powerful spiritual principle that when applied can change lives and make the world a better place.

My life has been directly impacted by the charity of others.

I was touched by my friend and mentor Tony Robbins when he gifted me with being able to attend both his UPW and Date with Destiny seminars. These babies were a major investment – and even though I knew that they were totally worth the money, at the time the reality was, I just didn’t have it. Tony saw the potential in me to add value to the world, and so he let me come on a scholarship.

Sleep is something we have a hard time understanding. 

Do we brag about how little we get? Or, do we give ourselves the needed rest and feel guilty?

Today, in my interview with Arianna Huffington, we dive deep into why you need sleep to power your purpose and how much sleep you should be getting. 

BOTTOM LINE: Sleep is vital if you want to live your purpose. 

I made getting 8-9 hours of sleep a night a MUST in my life back in November and my life has changed in so many ways. More energy. Weight loss. More focus. Clarity. And – I can crush my purpose each day. 

This was hard to do, but worth it. I had to set boundaries and get much better with my time management.

Have you considered that expansion and growth feel scary?

So many times I get asked how to “get rid” of fear or how to not feel a negative feeling. And I give the same answer…

If we aren’t afraid most of the time, we aren’t growing.

There’s this idea that a lot of folks believe; I’m not sure where it came from, but I’m pretty mystified by it. The idea is that somehow being on a “spiritual” path will banish all fear and negative emotions from a person’s life.

Guess what… it’s BS.

If you are living a “spiritual” life, you are probably going to come up against more fears than someone who is just coasting.

If you are living life on The Path – you are going to become more sensitive to the emotions you feel, not less.

Somewhere out there it’s as if there’s this promise being made that if you go on The Path, you are doing it right if you are only feeling happy all the time, never feel scared and can turn off negative emotions like a light bulb.

This is not what having a human experience is all about. On the contrary! If we are on The Path, we are inviting fear to come – because we are stepping outside our comfort zone!

We are inviting our emotions to rise, because we are clearing away all the things that prevent us from feeling them.

This is the path of the spiritual warrior – to be courageous enough to feel fear and keep going! To not cut themselves off from feeling however they feel – and know that there is nothing wrong with them for feeling a down emotion! This is what it means to be a human being!

It’s a ride, man! If all you were was some annoying positive robot – life would suck. Like Bren Brown has said, “When you numb your pain, you numb your joy” – being human, being open, being alive means being ready to experience it all.

And as we do, instead of trying to always “be positive” and beat ourselves up when we don’t achieve that impossible goal, we accept that life is a series of ups and downs – and while it’s true that we can’t always control life, we can give what happens an empowering meaning.

And by doing that, we start to take our power back.

And we also begin to see that it is by facing our fears that we grow. Growth, by definition, means we are constantly expanding beyond our comfort zone. And when we expand beyond our comfort zone – the natural experience is FEAR!

This doesn’t make you wrong or un-spiritual, it makes you human, and it’s totally normal!

Can you allow yourself to feel the way you feel without judging it as wrong or un-spiritual?

Self-acceptance is the first major step in transformation.

Without self-acceptance, no amount of reading blogs or doing therapy or life coaching, or yoga or any other modality will work. Without self-acceptance, all those things – including this blog – are just spiritual entertainment.

So! How can you accept yourself, even more, today?

Take action: Leave a comment below and let me know – what parts of yourself are you not accepting? How can you take the knowledge that you have about improving your life and turn it into a tangible next action step?

Remember to get out there, take action & make it real!

Talk soon,

I worked with a client once who was a writer and asked me why she wasn’t living her dream even though she was taking all the steps.

After a little bit of questioning, I finally found out that she hadn’t written anything of her own for over three months.

And if we take a step back, just a few moments ago she told me in the most convincing way that she was “taking all the right steps.”

As a writer, I can tell you that if you aren’t writing every day, you’re not dedicated to your craft.

It’s something that must happen every day.

One of the best books on this topic of “The War of Art”.

The author, Steven Pressfield – show us how to battle with an inner critic known as “Resistance.” It’s a brilliant book and one that helped me become a writer.

The basic idea is this…

There are two types of creative people.

Amateurs and pros.

Amateurs create when they feel like it, let resistance get them down and come up with all kinds of excuses about why they can’t create.

Pros, on the other hand, create every day, no matter how they are feeling. They are in a conscious effort to rise above resistance and are determined to conquer this force that holds us back.

So, when I was talking to my client, it was clear to me that even though she thought she was doing all the right things, she was violating the rules of being a pro and this was a major contribution to why she was not where she wanted to be in her writing career.

There’s this idea that we can only write when inspiration falls and that a moment will magically come when it all falls into place.

And that line of thinking is perhaps the greatest dream killers of them all.

Living your dreams is earned every single day as we conquer resistance and overcome fear. We have to earn it.

But the first step is showing up every day no matter what for your dream – even if it’s for only an hour or half hour a day.

Over time, you will put a lot of effort that will slowly start to pay off!

So, in your life – where are you being an amateur and not a pro?

Where are you letting resistance get the best of you?

And what new schedule and covenant do you need to make for yourself so that you are showing up for your dreams every day?

TAKE ACTION: Leave a comment below and let me know.

Here’s to being PRO!

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real.

Do you ever feel like right before you get successful – the rug gets pulled from under you? Have you ever been accused of “self-sabotage”? Do you want to know that if I could share one key strategy with you, what it would be?

It’s called stretching. I’m not talking about yoga. I’m not talking about pilates. I’m talking about something that feels really scary and will challenge your animal instinct to survive.

I’ll stop talking and you start watching this week’s episode.

TAKE ACTION: Now, in the comments below please tell me what your specific key insights and take aways are and how you plan to stretch your way to success.

It’s gunna feel weird, uncertain and like you might die – but take a breath and know that you are guided and all is well.

Lots of LOVE,

Mastin

NOTE FROM MASTIN: We just installed our commenting system and it’s ready to go! So get ready to post comments below!

I’ll admit it: I’m a Game of Thrones junkie. And I can’t wait for it to come back in just a couple weeks. 

I’ve recently enjoyed watching television again. I didn’t own a TV for about a decade – until a couple of months ago when we got Apple TV and it all went down hill from there.

I’ve really enjoyed watching Billions, Scandal, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Shark Tank and even Fixer Upper. TV has changed in the last decade – these new episodic writing styles have created a long movie over many seasons are pure genius.

And while I’ve enjoyed watching some of these brilliant shows, there’s something I’m reminded of.

It’s the idea of Spiritual Entertainment. 

Where we read the books, the blogs, and watch the shows – and can feel that we have made progress but actually we haven’t.

Right now, after watching Billions I feel like I am a multi-billionaire investor who is being pursued by the US Government.

The entertainment is amazing, but it’s not real. At the end of the day, it’s watching someone else’s story.

I know that the same can be true in the spiritual world. You can read a book and have a temporary “aha moment.” But what counts are the actions we take afterwards. Too often the “aha moment” isn’t backed up with courageous action.

It’s noted, jotted down in a journal, and forgotten. And then the next book is picked up, read, aha’d and forgotten. And we can build up quite the vocabulary of spiritual terms, think we are making progress because we have aha moments – but when we look at our lives – not much else has changed. Why? Because books and blogs don’t take action for us.

At the end of the day, it is you and me who must act. Who must learn. Who must grow. Who must apply the spiritual knowledge.

Knowledge without action is worthless.

So, I have a very basic, simple question for you:

“What spiritual knowledge do you already know that you aren’t using?”

What if you didn’t need another book or blog, what if what you needed was to act?

One courageous action is worth a thousand of the wisest books. A lifetime of courageous action is one for the history books

The thing is, you already know what you need to do.

So, in the comments below – let me know: have you been doing too much spiritual entertainment and not enough action taking? What’s one action that you can take today to start the process of getting unstuck?

Have a great weekend and remember to take action & make it real!

Lots of LOVE,

Mastin

I remember in my early days I had so many ideas. So many dreams. So many wishes that I wanted to come true.

I had a thousand ideas and nothing to show for it.

And deep down, I was angry Because I knew I had something that I could give to the world. And not just one thing, lots of things.

Teachings. Inspirations. Stories. Experiences. Love. Ideas. Innovation. Connection.

These are the ideas that boiled within me. But nothing came through. It was like I was creatively clogged up.

I can remember living in Los Feliz, a neighborhood east of Hollywood, CA. It was a spot full of all kinds of artists. Visual artists, musicians, designers.

My business partner was a designer and musician. I envied his ability to create when I was too scared to.

We made a great team because I was so good at the business side and he rocked the creative side.

But my life came crashing down and it forced me to make a choice – embrace my own creativity or die. And I think, in the end, that is why my life fell apart – my soul wanted to create, but I wasn’t taking action on that deep desire.

Enter: CRISIS (aka a Divine Storm)

It all came crashing down. Who would have thought that just a few years later it would all come back and more – not by the efforts of someone else’s creativity, but by my own?

There was a time in my life when I would have said I’m not creative. I’m not a writer, a storyteller or an entrepreneur.

But, the truth is, that I am, and I was scared to death to admit it. And not being able to admit it ruined my life for a period of time.

Life brought me to my knees so that I got a chance to wake up to an undeveloped part of myself that was dormant.

An unexpressed artist is a sad and angry sight. But I got a chance to express myself and turn it around. It wasn’t easy or pretty, but I (by the Grace of The Divine) made it happen.

Are you an unexpressed artist? Are you holding back? Are you scared to death to be creative?  What are you ready to admit today?

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real!

It’s simple: life is rigged in your favor.

I know that sounds like it might be BS. Especially if you’ve been through hard times. Or if you’ve been hurt. Or if life seems unfair.

But stay with me. There is a redemptive quality to the Uni-verse. There are lessons to learn. And once you learn them, everything changes.

If you want to learn how life is actually rigged in your favor – today’s coaching video for you.

I know that you may have been through very hard times. I honor your courage for getting through what you’ve been through. I also know that you’ve come a long way and made many efforts to get past what or who has hurt you.

Now it’s time to take a huge quantum leap forward in your healing.

You may feel that holding on to the past is what will keep you safe, but actually holding on is the riskiest choice you can make. Because when you hold on to the past – you erase any chance that you can change.

Your soul works in the present moment. You are being asked to let go. You are being asked to forgive. You are being asked to find the lesson, change your behaviour and let the incredible blessings that this life has in store for you to find you.

It’s time to see how life is rigged in your favor. Click here to watch.

And remember – leave a comment below about how you are going to see that everything you’ve been through in some weird way – has been rigged in your favor.

Here’s some quotes that describe what I’m talkin’ about:

“Live life as if everything is rigged in your favor.”

– Rumi

“True understanding is to see the events of life in this way: "You are here for my benefit, though rumor paints you otherwise.” And everything is turned to one’s advantage when he greets a situation like this: You are the very thing I was looking for. Truly whatever arises in life is the right material to bring about your growth and the growth of those around you. This, in a word, is art – and this art called “life” is a practice suitable to both men and gods. Everything contains some special purpose and a hidden blessing; what then could be strange or arduous when all of life is here to greet you like an old and faithful friend?“

– Marcus Aurelius

Make it a great week,
