December 2019 – Lewis Raymond Taylor

Where’s Lewis Gone?!

Where’s Lewis gone?!

The guy who used to be plastered all over social media attention-seeking and occasionally offering pieces of value from time to time…

Well, the truth is, I’ve been building a life beyond my wildest dreams and an empire that will stand the test of time.

Sounds a bit extreme, but I really have!

Over the last 2 months alone:

– I’ve spoken on stage in Barcelona.
– Travelled to London, Barcelona, Paris & Bali.
– Misses 3 flights in a row to Vietnam.
– Moved to Bali.
– Secured a brand new 3 bedroom villa with a swimming pool.
– Hired 3 new staff members.
– Got myself a girlfriend.
– Had a 6 figure month.
– Drank cat poo coffee (if you know you know)
– Went to a water purification ceremony
– Had my palm read and was told I’d become extremely spiritual at the age of 68.
– and planned about 12 ridiculous huge projects coming in 2020.

But, here’s the thing…

Although I’ve been doing all that, I’ve been quite quiet on social media.

…and I don’t like to be quiet.

In fact, it actually makes me feel pretty disappointed.

Because I’ve got a message to share.

I managed to take myself from a drug-addicted prisoner to a world travelling online coach and entrepreneur.

And it’s not fair I don’t share what I’ve learned with others.

In 2020, I’m committed to helping more people than ever before to create the same type of results in their life as I have.

– Money
– Freedom
– Fulfilment
– Happiness
– Excitement

I want people to have it all, and I’ve learned some CRAZY tools to help people get there.

– Inner mindset shifts
– Business strategy
– Online technology

Wrap it all up and you’ve got a recipe for magic ?

Anyway, you’ll hear more about all this stuff soon, as I’m going to start shouting more.

– Seeking more attention.

– Adding more value.

– Sharing my message far and wide…

– Educating people that there is more to life, and anybody out there is capable of taking it!

Regardless of the inner stories they tell themselves about it not being possible for ‘people like them’.

This tattoo on my arm?

It represents freedom at The Coaching Masters.

At The Coaching Masters we are committed to giving ordinary people, extraordinary tools, to create freedom for themselves and others!

… and that’s exactly what I’m going to do!

So, watch this space.

You didn’t think I had gone anywhere, did you?

Lewis is back.

Focus On You, Observe the Masses, and Do the Opposite!

Focus on you, observe the masses, and do the opposite!

I’m amazed at how many people are unsatisfied with their lives and are just putting up with it because everyone else is is putting up with it.

I should get a job.

I should get a good education.

I should get married.

I should play it safe.

I should settle.

SHOULD!

Who says I ‘should’? I almost fell into the trap of listening to people telling me what I should do!

I almost allowed my life to be dictated by people who didn’t have the life I wanted.

The people that moan about their job, the weather, how much debt they’re in and how crappy their life is?

The people who sit in front of the TV and consume other people’s lives because they can’t bear to focus on their own.

The people who count down the months to their next holiday so they can escape from their own life.

Without getting too complicated, we are hard-wired to follow what others around us do.

Our beliefs are formed based on the experiences around us, and when others are doing things, we assume we ‘should’ do them too.

But a while ago, I realised I needed to stop making decisions based on the things I thought I ‘should’ be doing, and started making decisions based on what I ‘wanted’ to do.

The things that would bring me true fulfilment to my life.

Rather than listening to people who didn’t have the life I desired, I started listening to myself, and created the life I wanted instead.

It’s easy to get caught up in the same belief cycle, listening to the same people and get too far into life to realise you’ve actually lived someone else’s life.

Remember, most people are putting up with a life that doesn’t fulfil them.

Just listen to their moaning and complaining and realise that if you keep doing the same things they are, you’ll end up with the same outcome they have.

And if what they have, isn’t what you want – stop listening to them.

And if you want a different outcome to them?

Focus on you, observe the masses, and do the opposite.

I love you, I am safe, I am happy, and I can take care of myself.

I love you, I am safe, I am happy, and I can take care of myself.

Imagine if that was your response to a friend or family member trying to interfere with your life?

– Rather than trying to make them understand…

– Rather than allowing yourself to hear their sabotaging opinions as you get deeper and deeper into their persuasive argument…

– Rather than starting to doubt yourself as you start to put weight on the opinion of the people you care about the most…

You simply tell them to stop.

And do your thing.

Live out your dreams.

Make your own choices.

… and really live life your way.

 

Firstly, let’s get clarity on what I am actually talking about:

I’m talking about your loved ones being your biggest critics.

Any idea you have, anything you try and make work, any interest you start to explore…

It’s the people closest to you who are the ones that start to change your mind!

– Not your haters.
– Not your competitors.
– Not online trolls!

… but your Mum, Dad, Wife, Husband, best friend, even your sweet old Gran!

“Ah, you won’t stick at that”

“That’s a bit risky isn’t it?”

“Are you sure you want to do that?”

“You will never be able to do that”

“Why don’t you do X, Y & Z instead”.

 

Sound familiar?

Well, guess what…

It’s not just you!

This is very normal.

The people closest to you, want to keep you in a protective bubble and are our biggest critics, the people who smash our dreams, put doubt in our heads and passively, manipulate us, and persuade us to give up.

Let me explain why:

– They doubt themselves and are projecting their own insecurities and doubts on to you (Basically because they don’t think they can do it; they assume you can’t too)

– They feel sad seeing you hurt and disappointed, so selfishly stop you from taking risks, so they don’t risk feeling sad.

– They have a different internal representation of the world (different beliefs, opinions, preferences – especially older people, as they grew up in a completely different world to the one we are in now) – so they simply do not understand.

– They are in protection mode. The unknown has a misconception of danger. Most people think they’re protecting people when stopping them from doing new things (when actually they’re doing the exact opposite).

 

The reality is, your Mum, Dad and Gran – are not mindset coaches; they do not understand the above.

They just react, speak, and completely sabotage YOUR life.

They must stop, immediately (If you want to live out YOUR life and what is important to YOU).

Or you’ll end up with the exact life they have.

If you don’t want the exact life they have?

You have to be firm and stand your ground.

Like I mentioned, you don’t need to persuade them.

You don’t need to argue with them.

You just tell them.

In fact, I’ve even written a draft of what you could say:

(This simple paragraph could change your future)

Ready?

………

Thank you for caring. I want you to know this means a lot to me. I can’t risk anything influencing me and stopping me from doing something that is important to me.

Can I ask you to keep your opinions to yourself, please?

I respect you and value you, but we are different people and your view is very different from mine. This is important to me, not you, which is why you don’t understand it.

I want you to know I’m happy, and regardless of the outcome, I’ll still be happy even attempting something that is important to me.

I love you, I am safe, I am happy, and I can take care of myself.

 

If you say that, you’ll step out of someone else’s protective bubble, and into your nest of freedom – like me in this picture haha!

PLEASE do what is important to YOU, not anybody else.

Stand your ground and tell people to stop influencing your mind.

Protect your thoughts.

… and protect your dreams.

They’re both worth protecting.

What Decision Could You Make Today To Move You Forward In Life?

Waiting to make the right decision is the only wrong decision you can make.

I know that just twisted your mind a bit, but bear with me…

When I was 25 years old, I punched a guy in a taxi queue, and I went to prison again for the third time.

** WRONG DECISION ALERT **

Or was it?

I got support in prison, got funding for rehabilitation and changed my entire life to the point I now help thousands of people…

Between the ages of 18-21 years old I sold drugs.

**WRONG DECISION ALERT**

Or was it?

I learned how to push through fear, about sales and marking, finances and how to deliver a product in a competitive and high-risk environment.

2.5 years ago, I dropped out of studying a business degree after just 3 months.

**WRONG DECISION ALERT**

Or was it?

I will have built a 7 figure business by the time the rest of my class even finish their business degree.

____

Have you ever wanted to make the ‘right’ decision so bad that you thought about all your options 5,92983,880 times and then still didn’t know….so you didn’t do anything at all?

Let’s me save you hours, weeks and months of frustration.

Ready?

YOU.
CAN.
NEVER.
MAKE.
THE.
RIGHT.
DECISION.

Do you know why?

1: Because you can’t read the future.

What is ‘right’ today, may be ‘wrong’ tomorrow based on external influences outside of your control. Both good and bad things can happen that change the course of your life.

2: Because you’re values, interests and environment will change.

What is important to you, what you like and where you are will be – will be different and will again mean the decision could be flipped again from ‘right’ to ‘wrong’.

3: You’re only guessing until you actually do it.

Regardless of how much thought you’re putting into making the ‘right’ decision – you’re speculating, making assumptions and predicting what it will be like. The reality is, as soon as you experience it, your opinion may change.

4: From who’s perspective is it ‘right?’

Everyone has different beliefs and opinions (complete polar opposites in fact). So to one person your decision is wrong, and the another it’s right. Another reason why it’s impossible to make the ‘right’ decision.

_____

One of the biggest problems people face is putting their energy into trying to achieve things that aren’t possible.

Sitting there trying to make the ‘right’ decision for example causes people to:

– Overthink themselves into oblivion.
– Constantly feel frustrated with themselves.
– Feel deflated due to not obtaining the thing they’re seeking.

The reality is…

They and trying to achieve the impossible.

And guess what?

There is no right or wrong decisions, only decisions.

Let me say that again, because it’s a game changer:

[There is no right or wrong decisions, only decisions].

I’m not suggesting you don’t put some thought into trying to make choices that will move you closer to the things you want from life…

But never try and reach certainly with a decision, as it’s simply an illusion.

One thing to realise is whatever decision you make, most of the results and outcome are out of your hands.

When you learn to surrender and make decisions quickly – you’ll find yourself making some good decisions, and some not so good…

But regardless, every decision you make ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ will be moving your forward through life.

Learning, tweaking, using it as insight, lessons and information to move you closer and closer to the life you want.

In order to work out what you want, you also need to learn what you don’t want – and self-perceived ‘wrong’ decisions do that really well.

But sitting on the fence whilst you try and make the ‘right’ decision, will end up being the only wrong decision you ever really make – and you’ll stay stuck, and be left feeling frustrated and deflated – with no new information to know what move to make next.

So, to sum up:

If you find yourself in this state of indecision, realise it’s impossible to truly know the ‘right’ decision, and know that regardless of what decision you take, all decisions move you forward in some way.

And accepting that, is really the only right decision you can make for yourself.

What decision could you make today to move you forward in life?
