PCam Adair is the empowered mastermind behind the organization “Game Quitters”. Cam’s company emboldens people, the world over, to move past their video game addictions and to begin living the life that they deserve! He is a powerhouse of positivity and I am excited for you to get to know him over the course of the podcast.
In this podcast, Cam shares valuable insight on how his past experiences and the choices he has made have given him a rare glimpse into what it means to have the resilience to overcome hard times and the tenacity to put your message out to the world. Here are some of my favorite bits of advice that Cam had to offer:
1. You have permission to start getting better
We live in a society that facilitates addiction. We are surrounded by advertisements for artery clogging fast foods, we are indoctrinated to believe that we need to purchase the newest iPhone each year, and we are told time and time again that we aren’t worthy as people unless we spend a frighteningly large amount of time documenting our lives on social media.
However, here and now, I want to give you permission to get help. I want you to understand that, without a shadow of a doubt, you are not defined by your mistakes or addictions. I want you to believe that seeking guidance, counseling, and advice on beating your compulsive behaviors is one of the strongest things that you can do.
“We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.” – Tony Robbins
2. You have gifts that are unique to you
A lot of amazing things have happened over the course of humanity. Civilizations have risen and fell. Shakespeare penned words that will last millennia. Leaders have come and gone. But, there is one thing that has never before happened in this history of humankind…you! You are a unique combination of molecules, experiences, and feelings that has never occurred before and will never again come to pass.
Understand that this means that you are SPECIAL. You have unique gifts, passions and insight that no other person has ever been able to offer quite the way that you do. That means that you have an obligation to get out there and share your message. It is necessary that you walk through your every day as the powerful person that you were born to be. It doesn’t matter what job you have. It doesn’t matter your station in life. If you are a barista at Starbucks or the CEO of a multi-million dollar company, you owe the world around you the ability to experience your best self. No matter where you are or what you are doing, make it your mission to always bring your best self to all that you do.
“I learned from my mother that there is a greatness in all of us, and that all of us are delivered to this world with a mission.” –Les Brown
3. Build your tribe by getting your message out there
I know that it has taken on a mythic status as an origin story worthy of the ages, but Apple really did start in a garage. Jeff Bezos began Amazon as a humble online book store. Disney began in a small shack, barely large enough to fit one car. Hewlett-Packard began with only $548 dollars to spend. It is easy to make excuses about why you shouldn’t start pursuing your dream. It is easy to say that the naysayers in your life are correct. It is easy to look at your bank account believe that a certain number in there will preclude you from making progress. Understand, it is not the means that you have at your disposal, but rather your willingness to be a hustler and a disruptor that will determine your success.
Cam began putting his message out there with little more than his cell phone and an idea. Now, he has clients from the world over that he has helped to empower and move towards the lives that they deserve to be living. Stop making excuses and start executing. Don’t know the right people in your field of choice? Start making calls and sending emails. Don’t have enough money to make the product you want right away? Make something anyway and start getting people excited about the possibility that you bring to the table. Small steps built upon small steps lead to large accomplishments and those are the foundation of real lasting success!
