Hello beautiful people, Lou Corleto here with a few inspired thoughts that occurred from some experiences over the past couple of days.
Specifically, the 'power of language' for influence; influencing ourselves right? For or against, and influencing others, again for or against. The power of language.
So yesterday, I was at a local university, an institution of higher learning. And the young gentleman who's matriculated at the university was helping me and I asked him for a pen. And he turned around and started looking for the pen as he apparently forgot where you put it.
But listen to his dialogue. "Oh, stupid me, where did they put the pen? Stupid me".
And then later in the conversation, I asked him a question. And he said, "Well, I don't know anything about that. I'm a biology major. That's all I really know. And I don't know anything about chemistry. And I don't know anything about this and this, etc".
Listen to his use of the 'power of language' against himself; dummy,...
Let's talk about commitment.
WOW, how many times I've 'committed', but didn't really commit? That's because I gave 'words' to the action of committing. And I had a good intention. But as you know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Let's talk about what occurs when we really commit when we've made a decision. Now let's break that down, to decide. The Latin of decision, to decide = is actually to kill or cut off. Examples: pesticide, homicide, suicide)
When we cut off all other choices, (as one of my teachers says) "There is no plan B for your A-game". When we make that level of a decision, when we cut off all their options, we don't give ourselves an out, it gets done. That 'thing' becomes the only option.
That's the only possibility. You have eradicated all the other options.
There's an old story about this king who was planning on taking over a neighboring island. And when he and all the warriors landed on the island, once all the warriors got...
With this beautiful background, I thought I'd bring up the concept from physics called buoyancy, or upthrust. Buoyancy is a principle of an upward force exerted by a fluid opposing the weight of an immersed object. That's why boats, you, and I float.
In scuba diving, you see the scuba divers that wear these vests, right? So when divers go down, after a certain depth, we become negatively buoyant, and we just keep sinking. So those vests allow us to put air in them to compensate for that which is why they are called buoyancy compensating devices.
Therefore, we can just hang out, wherever that is, 80 feet, 100 feet, and boom, just sit in neutral and hover in the water without any effort, no kicking, no swimming, just there. Because you're in a fluid. So without this, we're negatively buoyant, and we just keep sinking.
Let's take that concept out of physics and from scuba diving and into your life. Where do you have a buoyancy compensation device for you, so you don't get pulled...
Take a breath. And let me ask you this question...
How does it serve you by playing small?
Yeah, I know that's an in-your-face kind of question right off the bat. So let me repeat it. How does it serve you by playing small.
I know it served me in the way that if I didn't play big, I couldn't fail. That was an easy out. And that seems to be a pattern with a lot of people that I work with as well.
We can't fail if we don't go big.
This leads us to living a life of mediocrity- of living a life of so-called 'safety and security'. So we do enough just to be good, but not strive for excellence, not to go for that greatness. But that's not who you are. And that's not what you're made of. So how does that play out for most people?
Well, they take jobs that don't fulfill them, they keep a job for insurance, they marry for money, or they marry because their family wants them to, instead of finding that soulmate, that true love that, that inspires them for everything that they stand for,...
Did you know that before 1970 Type 2 Diabetes didn’t even exist? Back then, they called it Adult Onset Diabetes. Now, there are over 20 million people diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in the U.S.
How did that happen? The answer is simple… Just take a look at the food industry and all of the refined food—especially refined sugar—that’s being put out to consume. We’re talking about chemicals that are engineered and created to replace real food content. The problem is these chemicals are not meant to be in our bodies.
In today’s video, I want to talk to you a bit more about how the food industry has created this problem that now you and I have to face. But I also want to share with you:
You’ve heard the concept that knowledge is power. But if knowledge truly was power, then simply knowing about something that is good for you would be enough. Yet, in most cases, you’ll find that isn’t enough.
The reason is that knowledge is NOT power—ACTION is.
Being able to apply any and all information you have is where true power and change comes from. Whether it’s in relationships, your professional life, your health, or in any area of your life, it’s your capacity to use the information you have that will allow you to transform your life.
That’s why, in today’s video, I want to share with you:
While the truths I am sharing with you today apply to all areas of your life, it’s in one particular area that you will reap the most benefits if you change from a perspective of seeking knowledge to a...
There’s a soccer stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil commonly known as 'XV de Piracicaba' – a large and once beautiful structure, home to some great soccer games. but years of poor maintenance and corruption in regards to money that was supposed to be used to take care of the stadium resulted in a stadium in a state of disrepair.
The reason I share this story with you is that fundamentally—we get what we tolerate.
It’s as true in the 'XV of Piracicaba' as it is in our own lives, our relationships, our health. In every area of our lives, we get what we tolerate.
In today’s video, I want to share with you:
It’s time for you to draw a line in the sand and get clear on what you want....
Often times we allow trauma and hardship in our lives to determine the way we live. Trauma is real. Hardship is real. But what I want to invite you to consider, is that while we commonly think that life happens to us, it’s actually more that life happens for us.
You can choose to be a victim of life and your circumstances. Or you can choose to be a victor, and come out on the other side of the process of pain and trauma with greater character and strength.
In today’s video, I want to share with you:
Watch my video to learn how to understand the way your body is communicating with you, so you can translate the message, take appropriate action, get stronger and move on as a victor!

Do you know what the Nuremberg Code of 1947, the Helsinki Declaration, and the Geneva Declaration have in common?
They are protections that were created after the atrocities of World War ll. These were critical protections because physicians were performing involuntary medical experiments on human beings. These codes of ethics were created to help doctors improve the overall well-being of their patients.
But even with those declarations and codes—to this day—we keep seeing, over and over, what is essentially experimentation on humans… and it’s now up to each of us—up to you—to take ownership of our own wellbeing and decide what we allow on our bodies.
Today, I want to share with you:
The power to choose...
Did you know you’re basically a mind reader? Your innate intuition is incredible and you’re capable of seeing much more than what’s simply on the surface. Don’t believe me? Take a look at today’s video and I’ll prove it to you.
You’ll see how well you are able to see what’s really inside a person—and as you realize that, you’ll also learn how easy it is to change what’s inside, and outside, in yourself.
Today, I want to share with you:
It’s time for you to learn how your body works and how your body and physicality can impact your inner wellbeing so quickly, and easily.
So, if you want me to prove to you that you can read minds—and why that’s an important thing to know—watch my video above!
