FLY 110 | Vernon Maxxwell | If You Can't Be Real Then What The Hell Are You Doing?

Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Is Finding Something That Makes You Want To Get Up Everyday. - Vernon Maxxwell

What’s up FLY Fam®!

Today’s FLY guest is Vernon Maxxwell and he’s a man on a quest is to document 10,000 intimate conversations that move humanity forward by 1%. That’s FLY. I reached out to Vernon on Instagram about coming on and we set-up the date.

Vernon and I had a great convo. He even called it one his 10,000 intimate conversations that move humanity forward by 1%. You’ll see why once you listen to this episode, but if you like fake stuff and are closed-minded, this episode isn’t for you.

With that said, to get more of the inside scoop about Vernon, head on over to his website: http://vernonmaxxwell.com/.

Introduction: The House with The White Picket Fence, 2.5 Kids, Dog, and Milf...

Vernon realized through experience that the house with the white picket fence, 2.5 kids, dog, and milf weren’t for him.

[5:10] WTF Have I Learned?

Costa Rica, graduating college, getting a job, and the loss of a friend.

[13:20] It’s Extremely Important To Surround Yourself With Allies

In order to get to where you want to be, your mindset has to change, your environment has to change, and the people you’re surrounded around has to change. Remember that rising tides raise ships.

[16:37] Why Do Any Of This? What’s The Point?

Incredible experiences. The good. The bad. The shitty. Going through all that, Vernon realized that the only way he could feel like his life mattered was if his life had a noble cause. The end game just can’t be about making money or hoarding things, information or knowledge. Vernon’s gift is to create. If you’re giving value to the world, the world has no choice but to give you what you need. Looking outside of yourself for validation is a void that can never be filled. When Vernon creates he feels good, and when someone says dude that changed my life, that’s a win. We never know the end result of what we did today, but it’s a compound effect. We need more positivity. There’s a sense of urgency. Somebody needs to get this, and if they don’t, it’s our fault.

[23:00] Be Uniquely You

No one can replicate your swag. The more you can authentically show up in the world and be exactly who you are, the easier it is for you to wake up everyday and do that thing. Be you and realize that others in your space are your allies.

[26:42] Blake Goes Off

This was the point of my realest moment ever on podcast, when I just stripped down my walls, I blaked-out, and expressed my soul in its truest form. Hearing it back brought tears to my eyes.

[32:20] The Matrix

Unplugging from reality takes time. For most people, it will take them their entire life to remove themselves from the falsehoods that they have been lead to believe. That’s why it’s our job to be that light. To that light in the world to exemplify what it feels like to wake up every morning and do the thing you love because that shit is contagious. When we’re willing to change, people are fascinated by that. They’re curious. It’s easier these days to live vicariously through other people’s lives than to take action.

If I don’t get started right now with what I have, I’ll never have the opportunity to grow. Create in obscurity to level up your content and popularity.

[40:00] Expectations

Expectations rob us of our joy.

[41:00] Vernon’s Journey with Yoga

There’s misconceptions with yoga in the USA, but it dates back 3,000 some odd years from India. Intro to yoga came from a message from a friend on Facebook and from that first class, he gained aligned and had major shifts that led him to where he’s at now. Journaling has been therapeutic for him. He learned that he didn’t have to walk around with that pain and suffering. We’re all soldiers of the same struggle. We’re not the only ones to suck at stuff.

[55:00] You Belong To The People When You’re Outside

Share you are. You who are is your gift. It’s your magic. You’ll find that artists do this often, when they put themselves in what would seemingly be vulnerable positions in their music. Don’t allow yourself to be chained by the things you are afraid to talk about. That will keep you chained down and in a prison you can’t even see.

[60:00] Three Things You Can Do Right Now To Get Congruent

    Get a pen and piece of paper and just write whatever comes you to mind. By getting whatever is in your head out on paper, you are creating space for yourself in your mind. Cool prompts to use would be: I am great because; or I am sad when; or I love doing… Be the light. It’s not hard. Walk outside your door today and smile and say to people. Be mindful of what’s going on around you. The environment and the people around you is important. What you’ll find, is that if you are able to change your environment and the people around you, you will be able to change your entire life.
