Obsessive As Your New Norm


"I am not sure when becoming obsessive became taboo but all I can tell you is that I am obsessive about impact, freedom, and most importantly, my family!"

-Jared Yellin


OBSESSIVE!


People throw that word around as if it's a bad thing…

People throw that word around as if it's dangerous…

People throw that word around as if it's a problem…


And what I find sooooo funny is that the people who are NOT obsessive about anything are the people who have the most opinions about those who are obsessed with something and those who have ZERO obsessions actually DON’T have what they want in life whereas the obsessed DO!


YES, I am 100% obsessed with IMPACT and every decision I make as an entrepreneur and human is focused on this obsession.


YES, I am 100% obsessed with FREEDOM and every decision I make as an entrepreneur and human is focused on this obsession.


YES, I am 100% obsessed with FAMILY and every decision I make as an entrepreneur and human is focused on this obsession.


And I am telling you now…


More people disagree with me than agree with me about the benefits of obsessive behavior…


They say it's unhealthy…

They say it's unsustainable...

They say it needs to be resolved…


But I’m all good - the question I have is…



Are You?


To me, life without an obsession or obsessions is plain vanilla.


It lacks energy…

It lacks motivation…

It lacks purpose…


People often associate obsession with addiction and maybe they should be correlated and maybe there are positive addictions.


But let’s not split hairs for the sake of negating the power of obsession because it truly is a force that is unstoppable.


My obsessions of impact, freedom, and family are THE reason why I have what I want in life and will only get WAYYYY more if it…


Let’s break it down…



My obsession for IMPACT has led to the following in just the past 6-months…


  • 20+ tech companies launched

  • 15 new versions of SYNDUIT private labeled

  • Over 100 people hired for CILA Labs

  • Catapulted the Jared Yellin brand with the goal of being an example of HaveItAllpreneur

  • Launched an Angel Investor Network

  • About to launch a Crowdfunding Platform


IF I did not have the obsession of IMPACT, then there would be NO motivation, NO energy, and NO purpose behind any of this but I am obsessed with impact on…


My own…

My families…

My teams…

And the freakin world!


There has never been a need for more impact than right now…


A civil war might be on the horizon…

The COVID media frenzy is paralyzing people…

Unemployment is skyrocketing…

Depression is soaring…

And there is NO end in sight UNLESS…


More people become OBSESSED with IMPACT!


Which is why I am leading from the front and I am telling you - this is a HEALTHY obsession because it will give you motivation, energy, and purpose.


And most importantly…


It will bring you into ACTION!


You can’t be a stand-byer who is obsessed with impact.

You can’t be a complacent who is obsessed with impact.

You can’t be a rule follower who is obsessed with impact.


AND I am not telling you to adopt my IMPACT obsession, but I am inviting you to join me because this is an obsession that will change a TON of lives and make a TON of money for those who are bold enough to step into this obsession.



My obsession for FREEDOM is not only about me, but also focused on anyone I can touch…


We live in a captive world right now and this is NOT a political statement.


People are being TOLD what they can and cannot do and their VOICE no longer matters…

People are being HELD CAPTIVE by the media who is spewing propaganda EVERYWHERE…

People are being FORCED to break their own philosophical BOUNDARIES…


And guess what the answer to all of this power struggle is…


An OBSESSION with FREEDOM!


Just so you can see that nothing about me is hype, I moved my entire family from Connecticut (in a town we loved) to Florida (Naples) in 8-days…


We sold everything…

We found a beautifully furnished rental…

We lived in a hotel for 2-weeks as everything was getting ready for us…

We got our kids into an AMAZING school (that aligns with our FREEDOM obsession) so they did not miss a beat...


Remember, I never invite you to do ANYTHING that I have not already done OR am DOING…


So - become obsessed with your FREEDOM because I promise you that no one else is obsessed with your FREEDOM and this is your right, duty, and responsibility if you yearn to live the life you ULTIMATELY desire!


But my FREEDOM obsession is not only about me…


It’s about EVERY person I can touch with my words, with one of my companies, and with my influence.


I am obsessed with helping people break their chains that are holding them captive…

I am obsessed with helping people see what I see for their life that currently is out of sight…

I am obsessed with helping people declare their non-negotiables…


Whether this means you pick up and move, quit your job, launch a company, go on an adventure, adopt or have a child, etc.


The number of people with opinions over what you should and should not do is staggering and here’s a secret for you…


When you are obsessed with FREEDOM their opinions don’t FREAKIN matter!


I had more people challenging our decision to move than supporting it - DOESN’T MATTER!

I have more naysayers challenging my message than supporting it - DOESN’T MATTER!

I have more critics challenging me for my intensity around entrepreneurship than supporting it - DOESN’T MATTER!


And the reason it does not matter is because of my obsession with FREEDOM!


  • It does not matter if a decision you make that is RIGHT for you does not sit well with your family…

  • It does not matter if a decision you make that is RIGHT for you is acceptable by societal standards…

  • It does not matter if a decision you make that is RIGHT for you is critiqued and criticized…


Once again - the only thing that matters is the invitation I am sending your way to become OBSESSED with FREEDOM!



My obsession for FAMILY is my driving force…


I am always fascinated when I hear people chirping around my intensity for kids…


“Jared, chill out and stop showing off!”


Really dude or dudette - maybe you should start showing off more so that your family gets what they deserve.


And - if you interpret me as showing off - GOOD - hopefully it will become a new standard for you!


My family is my driving force for the other two obsessions…


IMPACT + FREEDOM are predicated on my family having what they want and need from me.


And that’s my ultimate obsession…

Giving my family what they want and need from me…


TIME

LOVE

RESOURCES

ADVENTURE

SAFETY


I will work myself to the bone to deliver on this…

I will stay up late and wake up early to ensure this is their experience…

I will do whatever it takes…


YES, you can challenge that my intensity for family might not always lead to the greatest health choices (sleep could be compromised)...


BUT, I’m all good with this because I am hyper aware that my family is my ultimate driver and an intense obsession.


AND PLEASE realize I will NEVER judge you if your family is NOT your obsession, but I will challenge you to find an obsession.



Find Your Obsessions And Begin To LOVE Being Obsessed!

I understand…


OBSESSIONS are taboo…


ta·boo

/təˈbo͞o,taˈbo͞o/

a social or religious custom prohibiting or forbidding discussion of a particular practice or forbidding association with a particular person, place, or thing.


But so are many things that serve a deep purpose in life…


There are some people that believe public affection to your loved one is taboo…

There are many people that believe not getting a vaccination or wearing a mask is taboo…

There are plenty of people that believe dropping out of college to pursue an idea is taboo…


At the core - who cares - and in reality - who cares!


I freakin LOVE taboo because there’s just less noise because most people don’t have the courage to do taboo things…


OR at least talk about their taboo things…


So, I invite you to be taboo with me and find your obsession and then fall in love with being obsessed…


YES, your obsession should make your life BETTER!

YES, your obsession should lead to an optimal QUALITY OF LIFE!

YES, your obsession should catalyze your energy, motivation, and purpose…


And here’s a few questions to help you figure out your obsession although I am positive you know what it is but maybe just maybe you thought it was too taboo to become obsessed…


I am telling you once and for all…


BE TABOO and BE OBSESSED!


Now for the tactical and practical questions…


  1. What consumes your thoughts?

  2. What feelings arise when consumed?

  3. What is the positive outcome associated with what is consuming you?

  4. What is 1 action you can take daily, for the next 30-days, to test this obsession?

  5. Will you join me and become OBSESSED?!?!


I am here for you always - let’s FREAKIN rock!


Live with Intention,
