Dear Dreams… Vol 1

In Culture, Daily Inspiration, Journal, Jun E Caniel Conversation Series, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on October 8, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Dear Dreams,

You have been in my head from since the beginning of time. You have walked side to side with me when no one believed you exist.. I smile thinking about the time they told me I was just a dreamer… I fell in love with you because you loved me unconditionally. You gave me hope as I held on to your ideals. You’re with me when I’m awake and when I close my eyes each day. I can’t help but smile at the thought of you. This romance will probably go on forever, just me and you. The coolest thing is that the world gets to watch us, and although you appear invisible to them, they feel your presence. For many of the greats you have been their corner stone. I just hope that many more will fall in love with you the way we have. You blind us from such things as obstacles, failure, problems etc. Instead you give us opportunity, hope, and solutions… We love you and pray you upon many.. Dear Dreams.. Thank you! See you at the top!

Jun E! Life without OBSTACLES

In Art, Business, Culture, Daily Inspiration, Love, Motivational Speaking on September 24, 2012 at 7:18 pm

What if the word “obstacle” did not exist in our language? How would that alter your life? I wonder if you would be in the same job? Would you live in the same state or country? Would you hang around the same people? Who would you be if obstacles did not exist? What dreams and goals would you have accomplished if there were no such thing as obstacles? Would you be afraid to live the life of your dreams?

To the average person an obstacle is defined as something that blocks one’s way or prevents or hinders progress.  In Jun E Land, obstacles only exist on an actual obstacle course.  They are used as a means to help people get in better physical shape.  We do not use the word “obstacle” to describe the inevitable complications that come up in life.  They are merely problems to be solved and worked through along the road to our bliss.

So much is put in place to make us believe in such poppy cock as obstacles.   It’s almost like people pay others to plant these seeds in the minds of the masses to keep people afraid and unable to work through problems.  The key is to change your vocabulary, which will result in changing your mindset.  Words are not powerful! We are powerful! And we are powerful enough to give words meaning by believing in them.  When was the last time a word came up to you and corrected you? Not happening…YOU put words in their place.  Make them yield to you.  Delete and add words from your vocabulary at will, and give them the meaning you want them to have.

It’s your life and after last time we checked you are not promised a second. Do not let a little thing like a word stop you from living life to its fullest.  Live and create the life you want.  An “obstacle” can only hinder you or stop your progress if you allow it.  Bottom line: An obstacle only exists in your mind.  It only stops you if that is what you believe it will do.

Don’t let anyone or anything dictate who you are and what you do. So what exactly is an obstacle to you?  Be Jun E! Be Great!  See you at the Top (if you allow yourself to make it that far)!

Inspired by dreams…. Jun E!

Jun E Caniel

It’s nothing like walking up every morning on fire! Everyday, every encounter is a step towards your goal.. It is the most awesome feeling to have purpose every second of the day. To know, that you are living to create life after yours. It is an incredible feeling to be filled with enough love to want to give it to everyone you meet. It’s like passing out smiles as if they were some kind marketing ploy. Life is truly amazing and we decide each day what we make ours.. Imagine only talking happiness, progress, and prosperity. Imagine walking around and always being in love.. You know that feeling! The feeling that you get for a significant other. The newness if you will. Yes, that feeling of walking around with your set of invisible headphones on, basking in love and purpose. We all search for meaningful lives, and everyone can have one. This is just a snap shot of life in Jun E Land… Stay tune… See you at the top! Jun E!

I always wondered if time machines are real… Lately I felt like I have been kidnapped and taken back in time. lol.. I must admit that I do make a conscious effort to stay between the ages of 4-6. I love to watch kids at the age because everything is so new to them each day. Nothing ever gets old, and every encounter is given maximum attention. There just so happy to be living, jumping, crawling, and talking. I remember as a kid not having bubble bath, but www.jcaniel.comyou could not tell me anything! I create my own bubbles from soap, and those G I Joe’s we couldn’t afford, for some strange reason cobra commander was right there with me. Now forgive me, I must confess that I’m a convicted dreamer and have been for a long time. On most days I walk around with a pair of invisible head phones on creating and basking in my own Jun E Land. It’s fun you should try it.

 

Embrace the Struggle……

www.jcaniel.comA wise man once said, without struggle their is no progress.  Anything worth dreaming or achieving is worth the blood sweat and tears required. Make no mistake their is a price! Greatness takes time to manifest, but don’t discount those quiet hours, where no one seem to be around. It’s at those times your energy is at work in the universe. Don’t be afraid to put your dreams out for the universe to capture. Then begin walking to it. No matter how small the steps, keep on walking! We have encountered many struggles in our lives personally, and building a www.jcaniel.combusiness. The hardest part was finding people who could listen and understand our frustration. Those people are few and far between, however you can always count on yourself and look up to the creator. Remember when taking the road less traveled, the only one promised to be with you at the end is you.  If your at a place of struggle, just remember greatness follows. We love you! Keep walking!

We are created for Greatness! Jun E!

In Culture, Daily Inspiration, Motivational Speaking, Thoughts on May 27, 2012 at 5:31 pm

You ever wonder why we were created? I’m sure many of you do. We were created to be Jun E! That means “great” for the people who don’t know. Every life has a purpose, reason, and legacy to fill. We are all legends under the sun. At Jun E Caniel we believe that everyone has a lion within them, just waiting to be unleashed.  Everyone has one direction in which all space is open to them. I like how Emerson puts it, saying we are like a ship in a river; we run against obstructions on every side but one; on that side all obstruction is taken away, and we sweep serenely over a deepening channel into an infinite sea.  You see every man has this call of the power to do something unique, and no one has any other call.  We encourage you to unfold yourself to the world. Make your mark in this life. Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.

SMILE!!!!!!!!!!! Life is Jun E!

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”!
