I had a Birthday this week and I'm not loving it! Like everything, there's a bit of Head-Trash and I'm here to rant about it. Let this play and you'll see exactly what I mean and how unacceptable it can be to live in the loops instead of the traction. 

You know by now, I’m a bit passionate. 

But what most people don’t see is the lows. 

-The times I question everything.

-The SPLASHES of fear that I’m not making an impact that matters in the world and that one more Birthday has passed and nothing changed. 

The danger of writing about a topic like Head-Trash is that if you’re not careful, you think you’ve got it figured out. Sure, I have systems and I take my own medicine… but I’m also an unwitting victim more often than I’d like to admit. 

That’s why I reach out to you. Not because I want something from you, but because I have the crazy notion that we can help each other. I believe that you know things, have experiences and unique insight that will leverage benefit to my network and my impact before I’m dead. And maybe I can do the same for you.

I am crazy enough to believe we can make a difference… together. 


I had a birthday on the 16th. I didn’t want to. It came too fast and passed too fast. I got a few hundred messages from friends and Facebook profiles… I appreciated them but it marked something that makes me crazy every time. 

It made me ask a question that put me in the Twilight Zone. 

• Did something measurable occur during the past year? 

• Did I gain experience or just repeat experiences I’d already had? 

Being honest… it was a little of both. 

• I fought the same Head-Trash issues

• I got about 10% of the traction I probably could have if it weren’t for the loops

• I made some new friends, built some community, connected with more honesty. (check that box)

• I established a little more ATROCITY in my brain to pull me forward.

I want to invite you to become what you’re capable of. 

I want to invite you to connect. 

I want to invite you to the conversation. 

Let's move from impossible to unstoppable TOGETHER.

Greg Yates

BIO: After more than 30 years in business, owning as many as 14 businesses at one time with hundreds of employees, Greg found himself under the influence of Head Trash when the Real Estate market crashed. In denial, Greg made decisions that ultimately cost him tens of millions in capital and a year in prison. Going from massive success to the brokenness of failure, Greg came face to face with the ‘head-trash’ that had blocked his decision-making process and left him isolated as a leader. Now, Greg trains high-level teams the 4 essential GETS if they want to Break through the barriers of Head-Trash. Greg takes leaders into a training environment he calls The Practice Zone where these four essentials and the HABITS necessary to implement them can be intentionally developed for success. Greg is the author of 4 books and his 5th book, entitled “Circumstances Lie”, will be released in the fall. His first book, “Broken, how being broken unlocked the greatest success of my life”, details his life, leadership, success and the entire story of his legal battles and prison. It’s a brutal story with extensive details Greg journaled in prison and how his return home sparked the desperate search for a new belief system and significance. Greg is a speaker, author, trainer, and coach but his ultimate mission is building the “Practice Zone Mastermind”, where men who are Christian Leaders can connect, train and network together. Men in leadership need a place to have conversations they can’t have anywhere else. Greg believes this network would have prevented catastrophic brokenness in his own life and is sharing purpose, passion and potential as the catalyst for exponential Breakthrough. "THE NO HEAD TRASH NATION" Podcast is where Greg rants about the Head Trash that's holding you back in short, inspirational bursts that bring clarity and focus for the Leader.
