Pursuing Your Passion & Crushing Your Goals

How pursuing your passion and crushing your goals makes your life magical, easy and effortless.

In this video coaching newsletter, I discuss an email success story update from a viewer whose previous email I discussed in my video coaching newsletter titled, “Own Your Purpose, Own Yourself.” He has a great girlfriend who is a perfect ten in his eyes. He got laid off back in February but got a better job with a 40% pay increase and a month of vacation before he started work.

He shares how living and breathing what I teach has completely changed his life for the better. My comments are in bold italics like this below in the body of his email.

Remember the old Dale Carnegie quote, “Inaction breeds fear and doubt, taking action breeds confidence and courage.” The best medicine, when things aren’t going well and it doesn’t feel like it’s going to turn around for you is to lose yourself in the process of taking action, doing things that are productive, not just being busy, but doing things that are productive. And eventually, someday, some way, somehow that worm finally turns. And then you have the glorious successes like we have in this email.

Viewer’s Email:

Coach Corey,

How the fuck are ya!?

Well, pretty damn good. It’s Friday.

It’s been some time since I’ve written you. Pursuing your passion and crushing your goals keeps you quite busy, as you know!

And as it should be as a man. Us men, we’re driven to succeed. We’re driven to build our little castles, our little empires and whatever small part of the world where we live our lives.

I thought you’d get a kick out of the title because it’s completely true.

I think the title of his email, he said, “I no longer belong to the streets.” So, I thought it was pretty funny.

Life is truly great right now, and I have you to thank. You’re a savage!

I know, I’ve been told that many times before.

I want to just give you a brief update on where things have been to serve as a case study for others that are on their own journey.

1) My girlfriend fucking rocks. She is my 10 out of 10, (right now, hehe).

He sent pictures. She’s fucking smoking hot, so nice job, bro. Very, very good job. Very proud of you.

There’s no need to pursue her when she can feel my strength in every moment we spend together. She does 100% of it.

If you’re doing everything that I teach in “How To Be A 3% Man,” women are going to be all over you like white on rice. They’ll want your attention all the fucking time.

Go figure. There’s mutual respect, we communicate effectively.

Definitely important and essential.

And she absolutely gobbles me up any chance she gets.

Naughty. Naughty, but nice.

I’ll attach a photo of us from our recent trip so you can get a sense of what I’m working with.

Well, like I said, good job. She’s a smoke show, bro. Very proud of you.

When you respect yourself, don’t allow yourself to be pushed from your center, and act like a fucking man, you. get. what. you. want. Period. Read that again for everybody listening.

2) My job is a dream. I got laid off back in February, and rather than sulking like a bitch, I pulled up my pants and got to work. Taking action is God’s work on earth. I ended up securing a new job with a 40% raise, a title increase, and negotiated my start date out a month to visit the true land of the free these days down in sunny South Florida.

Yes, I live in the free state of Florida and it’s glorious, the ‘mostly’ free state of Florida. But to DeSantis, he still had us locked down. Not happy about that, but he opened us back up. No more lockdowns.

But I just saw that in L.A. now, even if you’re vaccinated, you have to wear a mask indoors. So, what’s that going to do for people who haven’t gotten the vaccine yet? Like, what’s the point? We’ve got to mask up anyway, so we can’t go back to normal. So why do it? Because now the Delta variant, we’ve got worry about the Delta variant! Medical tyranny continues.

Two months vaca, tons of money, all signs pointing to shit going my way. My new boss had no choice but to accept, the strongest negotiation piece is being able to walk and mean it. Game. set. match.

So, even though he was out of work, he was like, “I’ll come to work in a month.” Good job. You don’t get what you deserve in life, you only get what you negotiate. And obviously, he paid attention when I taught negotiation tactics, which obviously I also go into extensive detail in “Mastering Yourself” on how to get any job you want.

If you apply the things that are in here, you’ll get a job. No problemo. It’s just a matter of time. There is a system in there — a follow up to do it, the mindset, how you show up, the kinds of things you say, how you go about it — and it always works. Back when I was working for other people, I got one 100% of the jobs that I went after. So, it works.

3) I’m continuously improving. My girlfriend and I are moving into a beautiful apartment on the Boston Harbor, my 1-year-old Husky is handsome, healthy, and brings infinite joy to my life. I’m a freelance personal trainer to keep myself in shape and make some money on the side. Busy, busy, busy. I also consider myself a prophet of your work, sending people your way and advocating for all the things you teach.

Well, referrals are always appreciated. And the highest compliment you can pay me is to refer friends or family to my website or my work. And besides, they can read all my books for free, including “Quotes, Ruminations & Contemplations,” the latest. This is my first book quotes, about 250 quotes in there from my just random different articles on all the topics.

What everybody is telling me, the feedback they like about it is it ties both of my first two books together, all the concepts really, in good succinct pieces. So, it’s available everywhere, audiobook, paperback, digital, hardcover. So hurry up and go get a copy! Got to pay the bills, my man.

In fact, my buddy lost his girlfriend back in April, and by teaching him your work and helping to coach him through the appropriate principles… guess what happened?

I don’t know. The horses always return to the barn.

She hit him up to grab drinks completely out of the blue this week.

Huh, imagine that.

They always do come back, don’t they?

Pretty much. Life’s a circle.

To those listening, you need to really understand what Corey is saying. You need to eat, sleep and breathe this shit until you live it every day.

Well, repetition is the mother of skill, after all.

I’ve read his books dozens of times. And I STILL DO. NEVER STOP IMPROVING. I found Corey’s work 6 years ago, and this man continues to be a mentor to me and an example of what it means to be truly at peace.

We did a network chiropractic care video with Dr. Dominick D’Anna and Gracie. I think it published yesterday, as a matter of fact, where he talked about when you have peace inside, in other words, you have peace inside your body, you’ll have more peace on the outside of your body. And what that means is all the people in your life, you’ll tend to draw more people that are kind of vibrating at that level of peace.

Your inner world will always match your outer world. And so, if your inner world is peaceful, your outer world will also be peaceful. If your inner world is turmoil and stress, you’re going to attract turmoil and stress into your life. It’s just a fact of living on this giant, beautiful blue marble that’s hurtling through the galaxy at thousands of miles an hour.

If you search Corey’s video “Own Your Purpose, Own Yourself,” you’ll see where I was a few years ago. Improving is nothing new to me!

Can I buy you a beer next time I’m down your way? Keep it plugging brother!

Your humble student,


Everybody wants to get the coach drunk. So, if you’ve noticed, when I do podcasts on the weekend, basically I’m working on the weekend and I want to make it as fun as possible and not like work. And so, yeah, I’m going to be tipping back some beers, maybe have a nice scotch in a little snifter. And you never know what can happen. The coach might have a little bit of a buzz in some of those videos, but I want to have a good time.

If I’m giving up my weekend to do some work, I’m going to be having fun, and I’m having fun with the people that I’m doing it with. So, I appreciate all of the good feedback on all the videos we’ve been getting. And obviously, the haters always get blocked anyway, because at the end of the day, my community is an NFL style locker room. It’s all about teamwork making the dream work.

If you’ve got something to add and help make people better and genuinely want to help other people, awesome. Come on in. And if you don’t, if you’re a jerk, you’re a hater, you’re a miserable, self hating self-loathing person, well, you’ll get blocked and you need to get the fuck out. And that’s just the way it is, because the world is full of haters and unhappy, miserable people, so why allow them into our awesome community? They just don’t belong.

So, if you’ve got a question or a challenge in your personal or professional life and you’d like to get my help, go to UnderstandingRelationships.com, click the Products tab at the top of your screen and book a coaching session with yours truly.

“Success is making incremental progress towards your grandest goals and dreams. Achieving your outcomes tends to take way longer than you expect it to. Fear, doubt and worry will start to dominate your thoughts if you are idle for too long and not being productive. Therefore, the cure for fear, doubt and worry is always to lose yourself in the process of taking action towards making your grandest goals and dreams a reality.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
