Who is Dr. Jay LaGuardia?
Dr. Jay’s life is a story of overcoming adversity. He grew up in a divorced family and with a lot of anger. This led to him getting in trouble as a teen and almost losing his relationship with his future wife in his 20’s. This close call was what made Dr. Jay realized that he had an anger issue and needed help. He began reading about personal development and learned that thoughts are reality, and if he was steeped in anger all the time it would manifest into his life.
The final step of the journey was when Dr. Jay worked with a coach who revealed his true problems. That conversation showed that everything that Jay had in his life, or didn’t have in his life, was because of his own behavior. This realization was when everything changed.
I Don’t Need Help
Humility and vulnerability are two key essential characteristics of a true leader. The most successful leaders are humble enough to admit that they don’t have all the answers and vulnerable enough to share their weaknesses.
Dr. Jay acted out in anger, but for other people this can take the form of other destructive behaviors like addiction and self-sabotage. For men this is very common and the message of humility and vulnerability is vital for them.
The first step is to realize that we are flawed and have certain areas in our life that we need to grow. A vision that motivates you is important because a compelling vision gives you the leverage to stay committed and overtake whatever obstacles you may encounter.
Triple P Life
The Triple P Life is about empowering dreams, igniting passion, and accelerating prosperity. After retiring at the age of 50 from practicing, Dr. Jay wanted to show other people how to live the Triple P Life and have real balance in their lives.
There are certain times in our life where we need to commit to growing our family relationships, time on growing our business, and time on our health. Dr. Jay realized that he needed to serve a bigger audience which led him to think about the three anchors that have allowed him to be successful in his life.
Passion is the cornerstone of success. Dr. Jay believes that most people are not connected to their passion because they are not living consciously. Most people live in the past or thinking about the future. Conscious awareness is about choosing to live in the now and what emotions you want to be present in. When you’re present you’re at your highest authentic self and people are attracted to that.
Being conscious allows you to be present in your thoughts and aware, and that’s when you begin to find your passion.
You won’t find your passion on the couch. Passion is found through living and experience.
Not all passions will lead to a big payday, but they are just as valuable and worthy of your time.
Comfort comes as a guest, stays as a host, and ultimately enslaves us. Find something everyday that makes you a little uncomfortable, and the more you do that, the easier it will be to expand your comfort zone.
We are the sum of our habits and our lives reflect that. Dr. Jay’s goal is to live long enough to eliminate all his incongruencies/bad habits. Think about all the behaviors that no longer serve you and replace them with something that’s positive that empowers you.
Your habits determine your destiny. The University of Toronto found that it takes 66 days to create a new habit. It takes work and effort to establish new habits so you have to put in the work to make positive changes in your life. If you don’t like where you are at in life, look at your habits.
Habits are a good example of why a coach is so important and how they can help you identify the behaviors that need to change in order to succeed.
The current education system teaches people to be employees, not free thinkers. The exciting news is that in 2020 42% of the workforce works for themselves and we’ve seen record numbers of business creation. There is a huge number of people who have realized that they have to teach themselves how to think, and that’s how society moves forward.
We have entered the information age, and that’s making the older traditional model of higher education mostly obsolete.
Having the voice of dissent being shut down should awaken people to what’s happening in society. Humanity only moves forward when you cherish dissent. Organizations and societies that encourage dissent are the ones that become successful.
Coaching is a form of dissent. It challenges you to look at problems in a new way. A good coach never tells you what to do, they plant the seeds of a solution.
Dr. Jay LaGuardia’s Takeaway
There are five keys to success and happiness, no matter what you do. Live in service of others, pursue your passions, do what you love and find someone to pay you to do it, learn to love yourself unconditionally, and take care of your physical, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing.
