Dudes Change Your ways in 90 days

Monday, February 24th, 2014

When I am in week 4 of my 90 Days Til Redemption cleanse I always try new shit. New activities, new challenges and I meet new people that lead to new adventures. I’m like Dexter on a mission. I want to “kill it”. Not a person, but my activity. There is a certain ritual to it. An energy that I revel in.

Currently my adventures include, running long distances, dodgeball, learning Spanish, fantasy baseball and match.com. Each activity I’m not really good at, but the challenge it offers makes it very interesting to pursue. I’m being a different me. Nothing is boring right now. I want to give my best effort. Nothing is predictable right now. I am out there.

What do I hope to succeed? I want to get healthier than I am now. I want to be smarter than I am now. I want to break out of my shell that I am comfortable in and build a new one. I want to live life. I want to experience. Sorry you can’t experience doing the same shit all the time. It just doesn’t work.

How I help others is inspire them and ask them to join me in a game of dodgeball or a long run or even a date. It’s me giving back. 90 Days Til Redemption is my cleanse and it helps people who need it. Remember its only there if you need it. The book is Dudes Change Your ways in 90 Days. Author is Jack Benza

Set up some days to remember

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

When you do a 90 day cleanse you have to set up special days to get through it and enjoy the process as well. For example, during my process I have a marathon planned, a mud run, a Pro wrestling event, a stand up comedy event, fantasy baseball draft, jet ski day…

Point is I set up days where I will look forward to doing things sober and not in an altered state. It is a challenge and yes a reward to experience and accomplish these feats. Every experience does not have to be a woo hoo party event. They can be a “holy shit I did that event”.

These days are special and I suggest you do that in your life right now. Schedule some stuff. A trip, a date, an event. If you get a little nervous or even excited doing it then you are on the right track. Venture off from the norm and try some new stuff.  It opens up some doors.

Another thing I do when I get tired of watching myself during this cleanse is take a “me day”. A day off where I get lost. I don’t drink or hurt what I am trying to do, but I go to the beach, movies, a drive, play video games. Just get a way for a day to recharge the batteries.

So when you decide to clean things up in your life try setting up some days for yourself. The audio book is Dudes Change Your Ways in 90 Days.

Dudes Change Your Ways with some Power in 90 Days. Daily blog by Jack Benza

Dudes I am three weeks into my cleanse, 21 days, and what I feel is POWER. The Power to pay off debt.

The Power to do whatever I want as I shave off the pounds and my arms are looking damn good.

The Power to set up meetings with managers and Hollywood people into pushing my movie.

Power to walk into an audition with fucking confidence.

The Power to say nah I don’t need that smoke or drink after work.

I like feeling healthy. I love that my income now consists of Royalties from my book and Residuals from my commercial, besides my day job. The kind R and R every entertainer likes.. My day job is also a night job. I am a bartender and a waiter at times. Because of my cleanse I am making more money at work with the tips I am getting. I make connections with people and they want to give me more. I actually care about the people I take care of when I am on this 90 Days Til Redemption. I am focused, motivated and dedicated to getting “it” done.

It is a feeling I recommend checking out. You know the book. You know the author. Power baby!

Dudes and Dames Change Your Frustrated Ways

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Frustration is defined in most dictionaries as a feeling of anger or annoyance caused by being unable to do something : the state of being frustrated. : something that causes feelings of anger and depression.

Change honestly is the only solution to dealing with frustration. Change rocks the boat. It switches things up so fast that frustration can’t compete.

There is no reason to be stuck in something. Life is to short. If there is something that you are doing that you hate. Or something is not happening for you and you want it to. My book, my program 90 Days Til Redemption is the change you look for. I use it whenever I want to better myself or feel like I am sinking. Kicking back and constantly living like you are on vacation is boring or gets boring. Setting up residency in the state of depression is worse. It is time to feel better about yourself. It is time to devote some time to you. I give myself 90 days to live a different way with no promise that I will live that way forever. I just do the antithesis of the way I was living. I make a list of certain goals that i want and I come as close as I can to living it. Whether it be career, monetary or health reasons the situation always betters itself when I do the program. I do the program several times whenever I need to. It is a cleanse both physically and mentally.

I could go through my resume for the last year on how good it has been for me. But enough. If you are curious about this it is easy. There is an audio book on this, e-book and paperback. Do some research. see if this program is for you. I call the book Dudes Change Your ways in 90 Days. It’s available on Amazon or Jackbenza.com.

The Pinnacle Goal

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Right now I am finishing up day 17 of a 90 day cleanse and going into this I finally have the energy to take my goals and dreams to the next level. 17 days sober, no smoking, no drugs, no pills or anything preventing me from getting up every morning and taking over my life and getting things done. And I’m not spending stupidly. I’m actually making money off my acting and writing besides my bread and butter job. That was my goal last cleanse publish a book and I published two. Also book an acting job and I landed a commercial. So I got money coming in even when I am at my bread and butter job. Lastly I am training for marathon which I will run in again three weeks from tomorrow. Every time I do this cleanse monster things happen. So what next?

The Pinnacle goal is the backbone for doing a 90 day cleanse. It can be to lose weight, ditch a habit, save money, get healthy, make more money. Hell that is all my reasons, but my pinnacle goal is to take a script I wrote three years ago and make it into an animated movie by going into a Hollywood studio like Dreamworks or Disney to sell it! Three years ago I wrote it, had a table read, did the revisions, made it an audio book by casting people for certain roles and dedicating serious quality studio time. Finally I put it on Itunes and Amazon.com for sale. The name of the audio book is called Living The Dream and starting tonight I take my pinnacle goal to the next level.

But how do I do it? How do I get that meeting in that Hollywood studio?! I know I have to find a manager or lit agent that will love this idea and get me in the door so I can sell my idea. Now a year ago I wanted to publish a book about my 90 days til Redemption process. I did my homework, found a publisher and got a deal. The book is called Dudes, Change Your ways in 90 Days and is available as an audio, e-book and paperback on Amazon. Same applies here in order to reach my goal. I allowed myself the time to get this energy, motivation and will.

This is what my program does. Hey I love to have a good time. But recently I have really been enjoying life, talking about myself and inspiring others because I am getting it all done in my life. I am an actor. I am a writer. I am a bartender. I am a marathon runner. I really am. Next I am a Hollywood screen writer. Why not? There are no bounds in this cleanse. Amazing things happen when I live it. I wear my bracelet with pride. I am taking the time to disappear for a while so I can do the leg work to get this done.

So you have to ask yourself….Is there something I really want to do? Once you answer that ask yourself…why do I want to do it? Lastly once you have your reason..when am I going to do it? What is your pinnacle goal? That’s your business if you make it yours.

Life is short. Start living it.

Dudes, Change Your Ways on Valentine’s Dazzzzzeeeee

I call it Valentine’s Daze, because people have to act a certain way on this day and it becomes a little predictable. Prove your love to somebody by spending time and money on that person. Not everybody has somebody so if that is the case or even if you have somebody don’t forget the most important thing to do today….love what you have around you.

Whether it be your money, the car you drive, place you live, the job you have, the kids you have, the healthy lifestyle you live, the pets you have, the friends you have and most important the life that you live. Don’t forget to be selfish and love yourself for a moment. What you have accomplished. It is a day of reflection. It is truly a day where you realize if you are happy or not. Are you lonely? Are you satisfied? Are you bored? Do you have enough or do you want more? Is there something that is missing or something you don’t like about yourself?

On this day I answer these questions and I make sure I get the answers I am looking for. Yeah there are certain things I would like in my own life that I don’t have and there are certain things I am proud of. One fact is I like waking up every morning and being me. That is huge. I get to be Jack Benza. What does that mean? Only I know the answer and I know how to get more answers. I challenge myself until I get them or come damn close.

Is there something in your life you don’t love about yourself? Do you want to make a change? Here’s one answer.  I have a book called Dudes Change Your Ways in 90 days. You can read it or listen to it. But if any of this sounds familiar then maybe I have some answers. It is based on the program 90 days Til Redemption that fixes things in your life, motivates you and inspires others around you. Again ask yourself the questions I mentioned earlier and if any of this sounds like you my book, is one click away on Amazon and I-tunes. Happy Valentine’s Dazzzeee.

my daily blog

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

I created a program called 90 Days Til Redemption because I wanted to get things done in my life and still enjoy life on all levels. For 90 days I suspend habits that get in my way of getting things done in my life. I love drinking and spending stupidly. It is in my nature. But I have figured out a way for 9 months out of 12 I don’t do those habits and I get monster things done. I don’t drink or do stupid things within that time. I get creative, motivated and I focus on things that I want to get done. You only live once so why not live to your full potential. Enjoy your goals make them come true.

Dudes Change your ways in 90 Days is an audio book/book that I created for people to get out of that rut. To see some results. One of the things I encourage in this book is doing an activity that you are not good at and own it. Mine is running. I am running a 26.2 mile marathon. I train for it every day. I lose weight, gain energy and I am motivated to look and feel better. I have another run planned in April. A three mile mud run. I challenge myself and I am very proud of the results. I am active. Your activity can be whatever you want it to be.

I provide tools in this book to get you going. I lived this book and I continue to live it whenever I can. I am noT quitting ANYTHING, but merely suspending those habits. So I can get things that I want to get done. Amazon, I-tunes. The book is available. Get motivated.

Dudes Change your Ways for Jeter’s last day.

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Dudes, Changing my Way For Jeter’s last Day.

I always said when Derek Jeter retires I will feel old. I never do feel old because the things I am doing these days training for marathon, starting an acting career in commercials and publishing two books in one year are not signs of settling. But today see Derek Jeter announces his retirement after this year and makes you really think about how short life really is.

It inspires me to work even harder during this 90 day cleanse. Right now I am in day 14. I have a national commercial running. About a year ago I saw a friend of mine on TV nailing commercials and my first thought was why can’t that be me? He waited tables in the same restaurant as me and honestly he kind of blew up. I am so proud for that guy, but honestly my thought process again was why can’t that be me?! So I did certain things like giving up going out, dating, drinking a social life and I hit the gym. So when I got that call for the audition I knew one hundred percent I was ready. Things started happening. I got call backs. I got more auditions. I was on avail. Eventually I landed a couple. Point is I wanted it! No reason you the person reading this right now can’t want “it”. What I am doing right now is learning Spanish, hardcore why? Because I could be making more money commercials and this is an untapped market for me. But that is what I am doing. What are you doing?

Dudes, Change Your Ways in 90 days is a book about getting”it”. Wanting “it”. The more days you spend chasing your goal rather than sitting on your ass for 6 hours watching Netflix you start to feel better about yourself. The process is called 90 Days Til Redemption. And after 90 days of living this way that is what you get Redemption. You get control back in your life. You accomplish things that you wanted. You make discoveries.

The book is available on itunes as an audio book and Amazon as an e-book and paperback. If you are looking for a change, start right now. Hit it. So when the time comes to settle and you look back on your life you realize what you did and what you never tried. No fucking regrets!

90 Days Til Redemption is back

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

For only 90 days suspend your bad habits. Don’t quit them. Just leave them alone for 13 weeks. Live a different lifestyle where you get things done. You get inspired, motivated, and healthy in that time frame. You publish a book. You get a promotion. You ask that certain someone out you never had the gall to. The name of the program is 90 Days Til Redemption. The purpose of it is to fix what is wrong with you. You want certain things in life but its just not happening. You see other people around you progressing. Making more money and getting things done. Meanwhile you feel stuck. Hey listen I like drinking, spending stupidly, having a cigarette if I want to. I am human. There are times I grab these things when I am stressed out or think I am entitled to it when shit happens both good and bad. I am not saying give any of these things up. But when a pattern develops and it prevents you from living a life where you deserve certain things…it becomes a problem. Or maybe you need a break. A vacation from the norm. You need a makeover. You want to get shit done. But why not return to your bad habits after you get things done. Why not get some Redemption first? Control back in your life.

Folks I published a book 5 months ago titled Dudes Change Your Ways in 90 days. It follows the 90 Days Til Redemption Program where if you have any bad habits that you are not proud of that can consist of drinking, smoking, gambling, drugs, poor diet and spending stupidly. The first tool I use is the Redemption bracelet. I get a bracelet and I put a rubber band on that bracelet. If I go 24 hours without doing that habit I put another rubber band on. The practice continues until I hit day 90. During the process I make a calender to mark the days off. I do mini rituals to get me through the process. I go to the gym. I watch what I eat. I take me days which are small vacation days away from the process, but I continue my process. I challenge myself by doing things I didn’t think possible like running a 26.2 mile marathon. I make myself happy when ever I can. I find new challenges in life.

Right now I am in Day 13 of a brand new process. Since then I have a new audio book title Living The Dream which is based on an animated movie that I wrote. I have a national commercial out for Farmers Insurance. I am currently training for the Los Angeles marathon 26.2 miles and I am running 12 miles every other day.

Some thing always happens positively in my life when I pursue this challenge and lifestyle. It is not easy, but I do see progress everyday throughout this process. Everyday I wake up with a purpose and I live life to the fullest. Folks. The name of the book is Dudes Change Your ways in 90 Days and it is available on Amazon.com in paperback, e-book or audio book. Change things up today.
