As is customary, Orlando Leyba returns to ask me three questions of his own. This episode has a little surprise: Orlando answers his questions, so you get a two-for-one deal.

First, why did you leave being a Park Ranger? Simply put, three things changed in my life. Not surprisingly, they cover a wide range of impacts.

Second, what is peace to you? If you have listened to this show for any length, you probably won’t be surprised at my answer. Can you guess?

Lastly, what is important in life? That is a big question, but the answer is surprisingly simple. What about you? What is important in life for you?

It doesn't matter if you are a comedian, or a podcaster; a satellite engineer, or a park ranger, there are themes in life that are universal. It is nice to see that on display today.

Most of us have a dream, but few people break from security to pursue their passion. Orlando Leyba did just that. A former satellite engineer turned comedian, Orlando shares his journey from working on CBS news to guesting three separate times on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Orlando experienced multiple career paths before discovering his passion for stand-up comedy. After participating in a local improv theater class gifted to him by his wife, Orlando began to focus his efforts on pursuing the path that resonated with him. Looking back, Orlando recognized a trend in his life. The entertainment industry had always been there, just on the periphery.

Once you discover what you are supposed to do, you recognize that your spirit talks to you and will show you what you are supposed to do. There is math in everything; a problem and a solution. You must identify the situation you are up against and determine what needs to be done. Don’t just settle for being where something happens. Find the environment that was designed for what you want to do and get in it. Do the work of helping the journey along, and the journey will start helping you too.

Surround yourself with people ahead of you as the journey opens those doors. There is a flow, an energy, to life. You give off energy. When you give off the right energy, you begin to see the flow to everything, where you can see and feel everything and how it is connected. The flow triggers good connection and interactions.

When you pursue your dreams, you have to understand there are parts of your journey you have control over and some you do not. Your content, how healthy you keep yourself, and what you do with the contacts you encounter are all within your control. Do what you can and connect to the flow. That is how you pursue your dream.

Quotes:

“Your spirit talks to you and is like you’re in the right place, so all you gotta do is your part, you’re in the right place, you got here, you’re good, you made it, to the right place, now do the work for this place.” Orlando Leyba

I keep five notecards on my desk, each with a quote to help me keep my focus where it needs to be. 

I replace two or three of those cards each year with new quotes. When I start the year with new quotes, I do an episode of The Jody Maberry Show with Jeff Noel to share the five quotes. 

Here are my five quotes for 2023:

"Trade your expectations for appreciation." - Tony Robbins

"Do your best and forgive yourself." - Admiral Payne

"This is a wonderful day. I've never seen this one before." - Maya Angelou

"Don't get ready. Be ready." - Lee Cockerell

"Happy present moment." - Jeff Noel

In 2023, I choose quotes to help me focus more on today. I want to enjoy today more, give attention to priorities, get ready, and use today as best I can. So I selected quotes to remind me to stop getting distracted by what might happen tomorrow and enjoy today. Everything I need, I have with me today. 

I've been doing the Five Things I Say to Myself cards for several years, which has worked well for me so far as it helps me give attention to what I think I need to work on this year.

Most of us use the New Year to set new goals or resolutions. Lee Cockerell recently told me something that changed how I view the beginning of the year. 

"The New Year begins every morning" - Lee Cockerell

If something is good enough to start doing at the beginning of the year, it is good enough to begin on March 5th or a random Tuesday. 

If something is enough of a problem, you should stop doing it as New Year's resolution; you should stop doing it tomorrow. Or today. 

Understanding that the New Year begins every morning allows you to start over each day. 

How refreshing to realize we get a new chance each day to start on new goals, rebuild a relationship, make new connections, and take care of our problems.
