cHub006 – Your Neighborhood Watch, it’s not what you think!

Let me ask you a question: – WHO ARE THE PEOPLE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD? DO YOU KNOW THEM? DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY DO? ARE YOU AWARE OF HOW THEY CAN IMPACT YOUR LIFE? The neighborhood I’m referring to is not so much about the family two-doors down the street, but the people around you. I’m referring to the people you chat, text, talk with the most, WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE? It’s time to do a ‘Neighborhood Watch’

Your Neighborhood Watch, it’s not what you think

The National Neighborhood Watch website defines a neighborhood watch as people living in the same area who want to make their neighborhood safer…reduce crime and improve their quality of life…” (taken from

To improve YOUR quality of life you must do a Personal Neighborhood Watch; assessing the people around you, taking notice of how they currently impact your life. The intention of a Personal Neighborhood Watch is to be clear about where the people in your life stand with you and you with them, so that you can set proper expectations, reduce disappointments and see clearly the type of relationships that are in your life. Your ultimate goal for doing a Personal Neighborhood Watch is to “…Improve YOUR quality of life”

4 Stages (Categories) of Friends (There are 5, but I focus on 4)

  • 4) – Acquaintance/Associate –
  • (3) – Casual Friend – This is the person who can say “Yeah, I know you”
  • (2) – Close Friend – This is the person who can say “I Understand You”
  • (1) – Intimate Friend – This is the person who can say “I am CONNECTED to you”

Take the time to do a ‘Personal Neighborhood Watch’ to assess the people in your life; are they pushing you to be better or are they just as insecure as you are? Do they remind you of your dreams and push you to pursue them or do they remind you of ways ‘It will never work’? Be sure to listen to the podcast for coaching and breakdown of the 4 stages/categories for friends.

cHub005 – It’s Time To Win, Using the Formula (E+R=O)

cHub Logo

Where you are RIGHT NOW is a direct result of a previous reservation or appointment you’ve made. Whether it’s your finances, your marriage, the current friendship and relationships you have (good or bad), if it’s your weight or your career, education or lack thereof; it’s all because of a reservation you made years ago, months ago, and even weeks ago. I want to introduce you to an equation or formula that is so simple, yet profound in how it has transformed the lives of millions of people and I am going to share it with you. Come one, let’s take this journey together…

I wanted to share an equation or formula with you that is so simple and honestly it’s not NEW, but this equation was constructed in a way that made me really take a look at my life and realize that I need to change my ‘Reservations’ or ‘Responses’ if I wanted a better Outcome. The equation is E + R = O; which means: E = Events, R = Your Response, O = Outcome

What most of us blame the EVENT for our OUTCOME. “I was born poor”, “My mother never said I Love You”, “My dad abandoned me”, “It’s because of my skin color”. What we have to realize is in order to get the Outcome you desire you have to change your RESPONSE. Again, E + R = O (Event + Response = Outcome) your Response is the ‘Reservation’ you’ve made that I spoke about earlier.

Here are a few thoughts I want to share regarding the Life Formula “E+R=O”:

  1. Understand that EVENTS will happen, these are out of our control. (Car trouble, childhood issues, Job, relationships, etc.)
    1. All events are initially ‘Neutral Events’; they don’t get life until we assign a meaning to it.
    1. How we assign meaning to events is through our internal beliefs
  2. We are 100% in control of our RESPONSES, and our RESPONSES ALWAYS determines our Outcomes
    1. Reactions are not the same as a RESPONSE. A Reaction is a conditioned (or pre-programmed) response, something that tends to happen automatically, sometimes without even knowing it. (I share my experience of how I reacted to someone disagreeing with something that I felt was important)
    1. What I noticed is a ‘REACTION’ usually manifests itself within your body. Pay attention to feelings of anger, fear, anxiety, etc.
    1. Reactions are ALWAYS rooted in a story we’re telling ourselves about that situation or a certain group of people, or a belief we have subscribed to (they don’t love me, they don’t respect me)
  3. Outcomes are always determined by the “R” factor of the Life Formula

When we focus on the ‘R-Factor’; the RESPONSE, our entire life will change and we will LIVE in the ‘O’ or Outcomes we desire. So remember the winning “Life Formula”, that says E(Event) + R(Response) = O (Outcome). Thanks for taking this journey with me!
