A Dreamer

A dreamer…

To leave the world better than its been…

The belief to persist and never give in…

The vision to see past what’s never been lived…

To stand firm on everything within…

A dreamer… ~Jay Caniel

What if…..

In Culture, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on March 27, 2013 at 6:12 pm

 

What if I told you, you only get one shot.. One dance.. One look.. One decision… One life.. What if I told you this was your last year alive?  Would you live it the same way?  Would you keep your same job? Would you engage in the same conversations?Jun E Would you have the same people around you?  Would the same things that bother you today matter? Would you spend the same amount of time on gossip? Would you have the same excuses not to achieve? Would you still be afraid of living and taking chances on yourself ?  Would it be too late to live the dream you had as a kid? I’m sorry, don’t mean to bombard you with questions… I’m just curious… What would change?

Ways That You Can Be Jun E!

In Art, Business, Culture, Daily Inspiration, Love, Motivational Speaking, T-Shirts, Thoughts on June 3, 2012 at 5:05 pm

       

  • Live Your Own Life
    There is nothing remarkable about someone who is constantly trying to be like other people. Be yourself and be the best you that you can possibly be.
  • Be Authentic
    Mean the things you say and do. Authenticity is not very common these days but when it is there, it shines through your words and actions and is very powerful for creating bonds with others.
  • Come Up With Your Own Sayings
    Come up with your own quirky and original sayings. People will take notice and it may even catch on. I. E Jun E!
  •  Leave Others Better Than You Found Them
    Make it a habit to leave people in a better state then you found them. Happier, healthier, stronger, wealthier. This is a major way of being remarkable.
  • Help People Without Wanting Anything In Return
    Volunteer to help other people out. Give some of your time, money or resources to help a fellow human being and expect absolutely nothing in return.
  • Don’t Try To Be Perfect
    Be creative and abstract instead of trying to live up to other people’s expectation of perfect. You can achieve great and beautiful things without them living up to the general consensus of perfect.
  • Face Your Fears
    People who avoid things because they are scared will never be remarkable. Face your fears and conquer them. Do you think Lance Armstrong would have been remarkable if he had given up cycling after he had cancer?
  • Take The Plunge
    Be that person who does what others won’t do. If others are too scared to attempt something that you are not scared to do, just go out and do it with all your passion and energy.
  • Question The Norm
    Just because something is done by millions of people around the world in a certain way does not mean it is the right or the only way to do something. Question the norm and don’t be afraid to do something differently.
  • Expose Yourself
    Get up on stage or in front of people. Risk putting your ideas and creativity out in public, available for criticism and humiliation. What if Jay Z would have been to scared to perform in public and kept all his talent and art to himself in his basement?
  • Start Your Own Tribe
    Be a leader instead of a follower. Build up a community or tribe of like minded people who will follow you and use your power to make a difference for the better in this world.
  • Say NO To Things
    If something goes against your principles or you don’t really want it, say NO. You might risk offending some people, but most will respect you for having strong boundaries and sticking to them.
  • You Are Enough
    Have the mindset that you have all the assets to be remarkable. You have talent and you have a gift. Share it with the world.
  • Be Optimistic
    Optimism and smiles are contagious. Make the world a happy and positive place.
  • Be confident
    Know what you want and be confident that you are going to get it. I think that all remarkable people share the trait of confidence.
  • Be Humble
    Arrogance and vanity are not traits to associate with people you respect and think highly of. No matter how good, famous or wealthy you are, stay humble with both feet on the ground.
  • Create something that brings joy to other peoples lives
    Art, a painting, a video clip, a film, a song, a poem, a book and so on and so forth. Be artistic and express your talent in a form that it can be shared with everyone without the expectation of getting rich from it. It’s your gift to the world.
  • Invent something that everyone needs
    The disposable razor or a cigarette lighter for example. There could be one little thing that seems so simple yet will make the lives of millions of people so much easier.
  • Take something that works and make it better
    The Japanese are pretty good at this. They took a normal train and change it into the fastest train in the world (bullet train). Take a normal and existing concept and make an exceptional change to it.
  • Start a movement
    People look for a leader, someone who takes charge and takes initiative. Someone who has good intentions and wants to make a big change for the better. Be that leader and start a movement to change something that is not right in this world.
  • Fight for peace and freedom
    All around the world there is so much unnecessary war and suffering. It seems impossible for one person to make a difference, but if everyone thinks like that, things will never change. Stop a war or change violent policies of a country and you will be remarkable.
  • Preserve our planet
    Rainforests are being destroyed, species wiped out, oceans overfished and beautiful ecosystems perish. Make a difference and start a movement to do something about the destruction of our planet.
  • Help the hungry
    There are so many people dying of hunger all around the world every single day. Do something to make a lasting difference. One idea I had was to get every person travelling on a plane to forfeit their meal for the hungry. A combined effort by all passengers would result in thousands of meals a day that could be given to hungry people all across the world.
  • Push the limits (break a record)
    If you can do something that nobody else has been able to achieve, then you will not only get noticed but you will certainly be remarkable. You may just be the psychological inspiration for many others to get past the level that was always thought of as unbreakable.
  • Revolutionize an industry
    Waltz into an industry or niche with a great idea or new perspective and put that idea in motion. If you can improve or revolutionize the way an entire industry does something then you are pretty remarkable.
  • Tell Compelling Stories
    Stories are an amazing way to share knowledge and experiences with others. If you know how to create compelling and fun stories, you can make a big impact on the lives of others. That’s remarkable.
  • Think Better
    Be a step ahead of everyone else. Think faster, better or more efficiently.
  • Read More Interesting Things
    The more you read, the more you shape your personality. The more interesting things that you read, the more likely you are to become an interesting (and remarkable) person.
  • Don’t Be Boring
    One requirement of being remarkable is that you are not boring. Be original, fun and get things done.
  • Stop Making Excuses
    Either do something or don’t do it at all. Don’t be someone who always has excuses to stall doing something or justify why you didn’t do something.
  • Never Settle For Average
    Never be content with average or mediocrity. When other people give up and settle, carry on going and be better than them.
  • Do What You Say
    If people can rely on you and they know that when you say something that you will do it, you are well on your way to being remarkable. If you make a promise, keep it.
  • Don’t Aim To Be Remarkable
    As contradictory as it sounds, most remarkable people never set out to be remarkable. They did what they loved and were really passionate and that is what got them to being remarkable.
  • Gimmicks Fade
    What’s fashionable soon becomes unfashionable. While you might be remarkable for a time, if you don’t reinvest and reinvent, you won’t be for long. Instead of resting on your laurels, you must commit to being remarkable again quite soon.

The Struggles of a Natural Born Dreamer

In Business, Culture, Daily Inspiration, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Jun E Gives, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on May 1, 2012 at 5:15 pm

www.jcaniel.com These dreams have been with me from since birth. For some reason I can’t get them out of my head. I’ve been on this earth now for 31 years. My parents truly have never supported me in anything I decided to do. The truth of the matter is my parents really don’t know me. I have tussled with this realization for years, and I must admit at times it hurts.  There are times when I think my mom is coming around but she goes back to her negative self. My wife and I have given lot of our time, money and brain power to empowering people in need. My parents reply ” Leave people alone”. ” Why are you helping the homeless?” Why are you mentoring other people’s kids?”  Those are the questions my mother asks on a daily basis. I remember when I quit being a principal to pursue my dreams of building Jun E Caniel, they frowned upon it. No support… What is a young man with all this vision of improving the world to do? Should I just pack it up and ignore my passion and the gifts I was given? Should I be like most and invest my life in someone else’s company, only to get shorted at the next down turn in the economy? Should I settle just for mediocrity or should I strain my potential till it cries for mercy?

It seems like everything was okay as long as my dreams remained “realistic”. My sister and her husband told me once that I would never play college basketball. They told me that I was a daydreamer. At that time I was only 11 years old.  They even told me there was a chance I would not graduate high school. Well I graduated, played college ball, and played in the Olympics. I currently hold four college degrees which include two undergrad and two master’s degree’s. I suspect this is the reason my sister and her husband do not talk to me. I learned a long time ago that you never argue to prove people wrong. You prove them wrong through actions.

Building Jun E Caniel has not been a easy road. Through the process we have lost houses, so-called family, friends, and cars. At one point I was riding a bike back and forth to work. My wife would have to catch rides to go to the grocery store. It was a struggle, but through it all we have never lost faith. We have grown into giants inside, striving for greatness. We have found ourselves and purpose in life through this Jun E journey. Our passion and faith keeps the dreams alive.  We recently opened our first store,bringing that dream to life.

Tiya and Jay Caniel With minimum help and no loans from the bank we opened the first Jun E Caniel store. It is true that the best way to predict the future is to build it. I wouldn’t trade any of the struggle for nothing. You can’t expect people to jump up and down for joy over your vision, after all most will never discover the true gold that resides inside of them. We live to start a revolution of people who know their worth in life! People who are not afraid to try! People who believe in themselves so much that they are willing to risk it all. That’s Jun E Caniel. As I write this I look forward to sharing our dreams, love, passions, and goals with the world. We live to improve humanity and build greatness with y0u. See you at the top!

Jun E Dreamers

In Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking, Random Conversation on April 21, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Two lungs screaming, ” We are too young to die”.  A heart that refuses to stop! A will that won’t relent until the vision is met. A brain that just keeps onwww.jcaniel.com creating and creating. We all have dreams in this world. We all hanker to be a part of something that is bigger than life.  We all look for the opportunity to be great. The opportunity to be a somebody. We all yearn for the opportunity to stand and be an expert in whatever we are good at. The dream!

The dictionary describes dreams as  a succession of images, thoughts, or emotions passing through the mind during sleep, however most of us are awake when dreaming. I dream about meeting people who have the infinite capacity of not knowing what cannot be done. I dream of a world of free thinkers that would rebel against the imprisonment of norms. People who will not be afraid to make their dreams become a reality. I dream about a world that dare’s to be Jun E and stop all the fighting! I dream of a world that is united www.jcaniel.com and demands nothing but greatness of each other. I dream of a world that is not afraid to be just, and do whats right for our children. A world without boundaries. The interesting part is we are the only ones that have the power to acknowledge or dispel boundaries. A world that does not stifle creativity of our youth, and that allows everyone to be themselves. Throw away the cookie cutter. It does not belong here! We are all powerful and unique in our own way. I dream of a world that will give so much to improvement that we will not have time to criticize one another.

In the end our lives produce the collection of dreams we hold in the mind. We must handle them with love and care.  We must be willing to take risk on behalf of our dreams . I surmise that we all have dreams, some of us just wait for the perfect opportunity to strike. There is no such thing as the perfect opportunity. We must be bold enough to move forward and make it a reality. Tell next time keep dreaming, keep moving forward, keep creating, and dream as if you’ll live forever, and live as if you’ll die today”!

All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
