Step Into Your Maniac-Self


“Being a maniac in all areas that matter is the greatest compliment because this means you are shaking the norms in order to live your truth.”

- Jared Yellin


I have always believed that there is this energy that exists within people that is yearning to rise…


This energy is the source of happiness…

This energy is the source of abundance…

This energy is the source of experience…

This energy is the source of impact…

This energy is the source of the source…


I call this energy MANIAC and I have a feeling you are going to get rather confused right now so please allow me a moment to explain…


Maniac aka Insane aka lunatic aka the single common label amongst anyone doing anything meaningful in the world resides in every person.


But…


Nearly no one will ever access their inner maniac in fear of judgement, obscurity, acceptance, and ultimately not truly knowing that power will come from this source of energy.


Think about it like this…


Have you ever been at a party and the music was just on point…

The music was speaking to your soul…

The music was in your mind, heart, and spirit…

The music elicited a feeling of joy and motivation…


AND the music made you want to throw your body and just let loose.


Let loose like it was only you and the music in the room…

Let loose and not care about anything surrounding you…

Let loose so that when the song was done you were out of breath and knew with certainty that you gave your all…


Almost no one allows themselves to get to this place - even when they are alone.


They are embarrassed…

They are afraid…

They are prejudging themselves and petrified of what others would think…


So they keep their maniac-self hidden from the world…


But remember…

Maniacs are the ones who change the world…


Get Over The Semantics Of Being A Maniac And Dig Into The Point Of This Article


I can already feel people being turned off by the word maniac…


“Jared, that is not a positive association.”

“Jared, maniacs have done really bad things during our human history - just look at Hitler.”

“Jared, I am surprised by you.”


Listen, if I used the words “Step Into Your Greatness” it would not create the same impact and the word “Maniac” was not selected to catch your attention, but rather EVERY person who has done anything noteworthy in history was looked upon first as a maniac and then as a genius who was also a maniac.


And I’m certain that there is a maniac in you which is burning to showcase itself to the world, but you don’t have the courage to access this side of yourself and as a result, you are suppressing your ultimate power.


For years, I have been told by people that I am a maniac from how I used to train in the gym (400 lbs incline bench press and 3+ hours a day), to my choice to write poetry on weekend nights when in college, to turning down an incredible internship in order to go door-to-door selling credit card processing, to declaring that I would be a motivational speaker at 20, to launching many companies as an entrepreneur, to deploying CILA Labs which will launch 10,000 tech companies by 2031, to many many many other decisions as well…


And each time these words are uttered, it helps reinforce that my greatest power is doing what it’s meant to do - IMPACT!


But this article is not about me - and instead it's about a process and a formula to give yourself the courage to tap into the source of sources which is your maniac-self.


It’s that part of you that you can feel, but you suppress…

It’s that part of you that attempts to show up, but you put your attention elsewhere…

It’s that part of you that you fear because what if it works…


What if your inner maniac creates the impact that you are meant to during this lifetime?

What if your inner maniac becomes known and historic?

What if your inner maniac gives other people the permission to do the same?


The “what if” associated with your inner maniac is the reason I am writing this article…


Because I’m certain it exists and I am even more certain that it’s meant to proliferate…


My Access Protocol To My Maniac-Self


I officially knew there was a maniac within myself during my time in college because this is when I truly dialed in my discipline and my work ethic and people literally said…


“Dude, you are a maniac.”


And I loved it - each time I heard people utter those words it led to me stepping into a space of becoming more bold, audacious, and driven to amplify this part of myself in service of helping other people do the same.


You see, maniacs are the only people who change the world and we need some meaningful world changers right now that don’t suppress their power and this is how…


Step 1 - LOVE your maniac self


You know what it is…

It’s that feeling that shows up and you immediately suppress it…

It’s that thought that appears to be too audacious…

It’s that decision that you know will not be accepted by all but you need to make it anyway…


The only way that your maniac self will emerge is if you can step into a space of LOVE around this powerful force.


Step 2 - Schedule it


My maniac self at this point is multi-faceted because I fell in love with it over 16 years ago.


It shows up in my parenting, health, relationships, businesses, and more.


But it does not just show up because I cross my fingers and hope for the best…


It shows up because I literally schedule it into my life.


Every minute of every day is scheduled…


Sleep

Meals

Dad-time

Husband-time

Personal development time

Writing

Meetings

Showers

Etc.


And you might think this is CRAZY, but what I can assure you is that because my life is scheduled, I have plenty of time to access and use my maniac-self which is my ultimate power.


Step 3 - Proudly Deploy It


I know I am darn crazy, partial lunatic, and a whole-lot of maniac and I proudly deploy it.


The coolest thing about coming to terms with your maniac-self is that once you do - it becomes INSANELY accessible and the impossible becomes probable.


For example, in June of 2020 I launched CILA Labs which will launch 10,000 tech companies by 2031 - there has yet to be anyone who did not think I was a maniac when they first heard me share this audacious vision, but here’s what’s cool…


My certainty and conviction around this outcome turned the skeptics into believers and the believers into wild supporters and the wild supporters into evangelical partners.


When you proudly stand inside of your maniac self in an unwavering manner - you will build a tribe around you who want to help you win, because when you win, they win and when they win, the world wins.


So…


Deploy your maniac self in your writing, video content, one-on-one discussions, sales presentations, parenting, intimate relationships, etc.


Maniacs only have one gear….

Maniacs only have one plan…

Maniacs become obsessive over their vision…

Maniacs won’t stop until IT happens…

Maniacs are the people who change the world and it’s time that you access your inner maniac…


Step 4 - Light the fire of someone else


The absolute coolest part of accessing your inner maniac is the new awareness that emerges for you to see the maniac in others.


And once you see this maniac…


It’s your moral responsibility to tell that person…

Light their fire…

Empower their inner maniac to shine…

And become a catalyst for the impact they will make…


To me - this is the GREATEST WIN in recognizing your maniac self and as a result of me loving this part of who I am for 16+ years, I have been able to support 100’s of people to find their power which impacts millions of lives.


Let people see what you see….


A maniac…

A lunatic…

A world-changer!


Here we go - here we go - here we go!!!


Live with Intention,
