John Hobbs | How to Bring an Invention to Life

May 19, 2017

How do you create an invention? How do you take an idea, build a prototype, convey it to a manufacturer or engineer, get funding, and ultimately bring it all together to bring your idea to life? Well, we cover a lot of that in this episode on the Forge Your Potential Podcast. It’s our pleasure this week to introduce John Hobbs. A runner, an inventor, an entrepreneur, and one tenacious human being.

John shares with us step by step his story, and how he came up with a genius design for a water bottle for runners. We talk about how he took his idea from a thought, to the drawing board, to a prototype, and on to a fully developed product. We touch on the importance of planning ahead in whatever venture you aim to launch and being able to not only handle slow company growth, but also being able to handle rapid growth. Seriously, how ridiculous would it feel to launch a company or a product and end up burning it to the ground because it took off too fast and you couldn’t keep up with the growth? Unfortunately, this does happen. We also talk about how he approached investors and acquired capital for the launch of his idea. We hit a bit on building relationships for the long term and its importance, how to reground yourself through negativity, the direct correlation of physical health and success in life, and more.

Hang out with us and the one and only John Hobbs right now on the Forge Your Potential Podcast.

Today is the day.

M.M. | Moments Are Infinite But They Only Happen Once

May 15, 2017

“What are you grateful for today?”

It’s easy for a lot of us to constantly remind ourselves of what we don’t have. That dream home, that perfect relationship, those paychecks with a long line of zeros. On top of that, it’s easy for a lot of us to get carried away in pursuit of our goals and aspirations. It’s a great thing to consume ourselves with our dreams and actions to take every day to get there. The thing is, we have to remind ourselves every now and then to stop and take a look around at what we already have.

It’s interesting how this has to become a practice. It’s not something most of us are ingrained with for what ever reason. But it’s something we have to learn to focus on along with our pursuits. What’s truly incredible is once this becomes habit, how much we realize we’ve been missing. Take this for example. There’s a high probability that in the past week you’ve walked outside. What did the sun feel like the moment you walked out your door? Chances are, if it was sunny, you have no idea. Or when was the last time you sent a heartfelt text instead of a quick one word response or phrase? When was the last time you drew in a deep breath just to remind yourself what it feels like to be alive? These are things we overlook each and every day. These are things we all like to take for granted. It’s funny, those small things we take for granted are things we miss the most when they’re gone. What if we all took nothing for granted today? What a day that would be.

Take your significant other in your arms and tell them that you love them. Thank them for working their ass off and for all the hard work they do to live life and keep your relationship strong. Enjoy the sun on your face, the sound of your children playing, and the presence of those you love. Take today to stop, to look around, and to be truly grateful for what you have right here in this moment. Moments are infinite, but none of them will ever happen twice.

Today is the day.

M.M. | Is It Ok To Look Back At The Past?

May 11, 2017

“Don’t dwell on the past, but don’t neglect to reflect.”

Looking back at the past can be a trip. A lot of times it feels like an entirely different world and even an entirely different life. In a lot of ways, it was. Our goals were different, our perspectives, what we found important in that moment in time, all of it for the most part was most likely a bit different than what we have and see in front of us today. The past can be beautiful, but it can prove dangerous for those who choose to dwell there. Knowing us though, in this Motivational Minute, we’re going to focus the positive aspects of looking back.

Most of our adult lives we’re told that looking back is wrong. Looking back is weak. If you’re looking backward, you’ll never be able to see forward. Here’s the deal, as with most things in life, moderation and the reason why you’re doing something is key. The past shouldn’t be lived in, no more than the future should be. The present is where we need to live, but past and future is where we need to look from time to time. Again, look back in moderation. Revisit the good, the bad, and apply it to what you’re facing today. And there you have the why. Look back to enjoy and relish those moments that are past that will never do so again. Look back to learn how to be better today and tomorrow. Look back because you can, that’s one of the incredible things about being a human, the memories we hold and pass on to others. Not to mention the importance of such. So next time when we feel like preaching to someone about the dangers of looking back, we’ll remember the benefits of doing so.

No matter what it holds, don’t be afraid to visit the past, but sure as hell don’t get lost there. Like an orchid in the rainforest to a fly, it can be a beautiful trap. Enjoy it and simply pass by just to say hello.

Today is the day.
