Why I Do What I Do...

Taylee and Ryker

PERIOD!

- Jared Yellin



When I was 20 years old, I had one of those moments…


You know…


Those moments when you realize something and your entire life changes as a result…


I realized that EVENTUALLY I was going to be a DAD…


I knew it was not happening when I was 20…


But I was certain that it would happen in my lifetime and as I started to think about this extraordinary opportunity there was one word that kept coming to my mind…


FREEDOM…


-Time

-Geographical

-Career

-Health

-Spiritual

-Financial


And as I was digging into this non-negotiable, I started thinking about how I could attain this level of FREEDOM and there was only ONE path…


ENTREPRENEURSHIP!


Fast forward to today...15 years later!


I GOT IT!


I have the two ROCKSTAR children, Taylee and Ryker, who are my #1 WHY!


And I got the freedom on all levels…


-Time

-Geographical

-Career

-Health

-Spiritual

-Financial


And this is 100% because of entrepreneurship…


I have launched many companies over the past 15 years…


Had some wonderful WINS

And some trying LOSSES…


But entrepreneurship has given me my ultimate desire…


TO BE A DAD FIRST!


But, there was a pivotal moment that took place on this journey…


For some reason, as much as I was certain of becoming a DAD, I was equally as certain (based on my limiting belief) that you could either be SUCCESSFUL IN BUSINESS or be SUCCESSFUL IN FAMILY, but you could NOT have both.


I am not sure why it was a THIS or THAN scenario but I deeply believed this to be true…


And guess what happened…


My limiting belief became my reality - like it does for every person on the planet and all throughout history!


Maybe for your limiting belief is…


“No one can love me.”

“I will never be successful.”

“People don’t care what I have to say.”

“I don’t understand technology.”


I have no idea what your belief is, but what I do know is that your belief is now your reality UNLESS you make the decision and then take massive action.


Back to me for a moment because there is a TON for you to learn here…


My limiting belief once again was that I could either be SUCCESSFUL as an entrepreneur OR SUCCESSFUL as an family man…


Since I was living in a THIS or THAT scenario, I became successful as an entrepreneur AND my relationship with Lindsay suffered intensely.


I gave her zero time…

I never listened to her thoughts…

I felt that she was difficult…


AND


I put every waking minute into building myself as an entrepreneur…


In 2014, a miracle took place…


I got into bed one night at around 4am and Lindsay, my fiance at the time, woke up and said something that gives me chills to this day…


“I feel like I am an inconvenience to you.”


And then she rolled over and went back to sleep…


This statement landed and it landed hard…


I could have easily tried to defend myself - “Do you even understand what I am trying to do!”

I could have felt badly and said sorry - “I am so sorry you feel this way, this is never my intention.”


But instead I started to smile because she was right and that was going to be the last night she would feel this way.


I woke up a few hours later and I committed to HAVING IT ALL.


ALL = FREEDOM!


-Time

-Geographical

-Career

-Health

-Spiritual

-Financial


And this commitment was NOT just words…


It was SEISMIC action…

DAILY rituals…

A NEW FOCUS on what mattered and matters most…


I redefined my limiting belief…

I set up rhythms to hold myself accountable…

I stepped into my CODE (do what’s RIGHT regardless of who is watching)


And guess what happened…


I BECAME WHAT I ENVISIONED AT 20 YEARS OLD…


A DAD

A HUSBAND

A HEALTHY, CONGRUENT, HAPPY MAN…

AN ENTREPRENEUR!


And yes…


The reason I do what I do is because I am fanatically focused on helping my children, from Day 1 of their lives, realize…


THEY CAN (and WILL) HAVE IT ALL!


The moral of this story is this…


1 - Redefine your bull*** limiting beliefs

2 - Own where changes need to be made

3 - Commit to action

4 - CLEARLY DEFINE YOUR WHY!


Who is game on!?!?


Always here for ya!


Live with Intention,

JY


PS: Thank you Lindsay, my wife, for helping me see what I didn't see - it has made all the difference!
