The 10 Road Rage Commandments…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on July 13, 2015 by Jay Isip


Driving behind the wheel is stressful, especially in New Jersey. I understand that road rage is a subtlety in our country, let alone our state. People behind the wheel can’t bear to stand others on the road; especially if they can’t drive–or more likely can’t drive in favor for them. Most people behind the wheel, act is if, they are the only people who have somewhere to go, in a rush to get somewhere, or they’re Paul Walker (R.I.P) driving a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse—relax!

I’m sorry if everyone is not swift with the steering wheel as you think you are.

Your road rage is actually a symbolization of how you deal with life; if you can’t keep your composure while you drive–then you can’t keep your composure when things are not going your way. When your emotions rise into anger just because of some little driving incident that didn’t go as you wish, is a sign that you can’t handle real life situations. When life hits at you hard, you cry, scream, and complain about others and blame them for their so-called, bad driving.

Basically, you’re a little spoiled, 4 year-old brat, that stomps their feet when the parent doesn’t buy them a toy. Yeah, that’s you. You’re a little brat bastard.

…or, maybe I’m bitter because I suck at driving, but at least I have an excuse–I’m Asian, and it’s in my blood! My driving track record isn’t the cleanest either. The following is a SMALL list in car incidentals…

  1. DUI
  2. DWI
  3. Four totaled cars
  4. Seven accidents (on record)
  5. but NO driving violations–ever.

I am the person that all you road raging addicts get Fast & Furious with. It’s not nice to get mad at others because of their handicap driving skills; well I’m not an angel either–I’m guilty for making others get mad because I sometimes purposely drive like shit, so the other driver flips-out; it makes me laugh. I understand that my driving kind of sucks, so I use it to my advantage to selfishly make myself giggle at others road rage.

So, I’m not really upset about people with road rage, because I know they are only truly hurting themselves by being such a bitch.

Road rage is not what really bothers me on the road; I actually thoroughly enjoy watching someone get pissed off, as I shine my first-grade smile at them to create more rage behind their wheel…

What really grinds my transmission, is when people act nice behind the wheel but and then, act like a jerk-off after they had just offered courtesy. The drivers, who TRY to be courteous, are the drivers that piss me off. It’s like; why are you going to ACT courteous, if you’re really a jerk-off? If you are a jerk-off behind the wheel, then that is completely fine with me. Cut me off and flip me the bird for all I care; I’m still going to continue to drive along with my day. But, don’t act one way, and then change your mind because your courtesy has not been appreciated soon enough for you.

My Turning Point

I was driving along with my brother Pete Isip, and current girlfriend Alyssa (this was actually about a week ago) and we were driving past the 7-Eleven on the corner on Hancox and Passaic Ave. located in Nutley NJ. I understand that I am not the best of drivers so I am extremely cautious when I am behind the wheel; especially for the safety of my passengers. Now, I’m dead stop at the corner trying to execute a proper left turn onto Passiac Ave; but of course, there are obstacles. Passing by to my left are cars, on cars, on cars so, it’s almost impossible to even sneak up past the one lane. In the further lane, there was a man inside of a black Dodge Ram and he looked like Patrick Swayze with a mushroom haircut. He seemed like a super cool dude, and at first he was; he gave me the hand signal to go first before he makes his left turn into the 7-Eleven parking lot—what a nice guy! The cars keep zooming by to my left without anyone letting me turn. I’m patient enough to wait my turn, but it started to seem that Patrick, was beginning to get furious as he frays his hand in the air, and lightly smacks his forehead.

“Would you go already!” generic Patrick Sawyze screamed.

I said back, “How am I supposed to turn? There are 100 cars zooming past me.”

“Jesus Christ! Just go!” Patrick yelled back.

It’s apparent to me this guy must be blind because he can’t see the cars driving past me, the family of baby ducks in the crosswalk with their mother, and the Wall of China, that is obviously obscuring my righter way. I guess Generic Patrick Swayze could only see a “GHOST” and not physical objects or people.

I yelled back, “How the hell do you expect me to go?”

“You’re a fucking asshole!” said Patrick.

Now, we are slowly forming an accumulation of insults that will hopefully burst into a fireball of fury. I’m not really mad, but I keep adding fuel to the fire by yelling back because I knew this would become great dialogue for this post.

“Go fuck yourself you prick!” I semi-sarcastically yell.

“What you say? Are you crazy?” Patrick Swayze angrily asked.

“I’ll kick your ass!” I yelled back.

Little did he know I always carry a Proton Pack under my driver’s seat, so he would have been toast if he made a move—I ain’t afraid of no ghosts!


“WHAT!” Patrick yelled again.

He finally decided to make a screeching left turn into the 7-Eleven parking lot; parked his car and hopped out—fuming. All of a sudden, his hair is slicked back, sleeves a cut-off, and had a lit cigarette hanging from his shit talker; and now had transformed into Patrick Swayze from Road House. It’s now obvious this Patrick was a not only a ghost—but a demon that wanted to start Dirty Dancing.

I said again, “Seriously. How did you expect me to turn! Don’t let me go, if you have no patients. Asshole!”

“FUCK YOU!” Patrick screamed.

He stands there in a casual fighting stance like Clint Eastwood with both arms to the side and definitely ready for war—a war I wasn’t going to engage, only because this was all too funny.

I continue to scream and shoot hard looks but only out of enjoyment—not out of anger. I drove away slowly and finally got to make my left turn.

Like I said, if it wasn’t for Patrick Swayze look-a-like; I wouldn’t have a story to write—kudos for the mini argument to get my point across for this article.

My point again, don’t offer someone courtesy, if you quick on pulling back your offer. If you are going to be courteous, then stay courteous. If you’re going to be an asshole, then stay an asshole—I respect both.

10 Road Rage Commandments–well, my road rage commandments…

  1. Don’t give me the hand signal to go first, and then get upset if I don’t proceed fast enough.
  2. If I give you the hand signal to go first, then go first; don’t wave the signal back at me because I’m just going to wave it right back at you, and vice-versa–now, the courtesy war had just gone to a whole new level.
  3. Don’t honk at me at a “No Turn on Red” stop light, while I’m in the right turn only lane. Seriously, have some patients and more importantly—it’s the law!
  4. When a light just turns green, there should be a three-second window before honking to move; anything before that, I will make you wait longer on purpose.
  5. When honking at me, you get 2 honks—anything more than that you shall be penalized. Oh, and don’t lean on the horn because now we’re fist fighting.
  6. When picking someone up, you have unlimited honks–it’s not rude to honk like crazy when you’re picking up someone at their house–honk away!
  7. Don’t ever expect courtesy from other drivers, and when you don’t receive your “proper” courtesy—you don’t have the privilege to get upset.
  8. Don’t drive up my ass, why do you have to drive so close to my car, just because you want to go faster? Drive around jerk-off! Next time I’m braking short so we get into an accident—don’t matter to me, it wouldn’t be my first rodeo!
  9. While at a stop light, don’t pull up to my right just to get a head start in front—if you ask then I will let you go, no problem. I have a problem about the tick foolery of pretending to make a right turn, and then you peel out like a drag racer just to get in front of me. I hope you get a ticket–eventually.
  10. Four way stop sign—I’m going first, always.

Obey the “10 Road Rage Commandments” and your life, both inside and outside of the vehicle, will be much easier. Driving is a very emotional procedure, it controls our moods that we will carry throughout the day—yet we have no control of others on the road. But, maybe that’s why we get distorted emotions in the first place; because we have no control. Have control of your time behind the wheel, and let everything else on the road—drive its course….

10906207_10204733212842972_5840411223136908004_nOur biggest challenge that we will ever face is that person in the mirror. Every-day is a challenge when we step into the walks of life we have put on the pavement. We have obstacles in our every-day lives, as long as we are growing—not content. It’s easy to live life at a median, monotony, and clockwork. The real challenge is stepping; into the unknown to try and know, into the dark to search for light, into the face of fear when you are scared, trying to overcome. Defeating yourself is the Big Challenge—you are your own worst enemy. WE—ourselves, are the biggest challenge in life and the fight is never over as long as WE are still alive… ‪#‎10StacksToSuccess‬ ‪#‎motivation‬ ‪#‎inspiration‬ ‪#‎reflection

blog1Before the world/yourself labeled you, WHO WERE YOU? Maybe just a child–something beyond the scope of our imagination. Most likely-we have no idea. “Forgive them for they know not what they do, BECAUSE they not know WHO THEY ARE!” Jesus Christ–

Forgive the old you, for the corrupted system brainwashed our population with fear, conformity, and lies. It’s not your fault for getting sucked into the negative vortex our world has created but our fault for being naive. Now, it’s our decision to accept the facts and flaws we have drawn upon ourselves—we must move on. This instant allow the “new you” to absorb; new, positive, and life changing habits because it is our human nature to grow. So, let’s all begin to create a new form of ourselves to acheive the personal growth we ALL deserve in the end…

Who the F#$K is Jerome “Jay” Isip!?

10171892_10204420496145250_2691918749175271532_nJerome “Jay” Isip is a successful entrepreneur within several walks of life – finance, small business, e-stock trading, and athletics. Born and raised in Belleville, New Jersey, Jay was never one for academics. Rather than concentrating on coursework, he was instead distracted by the typical trappings other young men endure. Jay has always been more interested in enjoying life and those around him, which isn’t going to get anyone accepted at a credible college or university. Even still, Jay stayed determined to choose his own career path, which would eventually lead him to becoming a business owner, consultant, a professional “mixed-martial arts” fighter. And now he has added the title of “author” to the list. Through his brand of “tough love”, Jay has helped others achieve their own personal successes, from mom and pop shop owners and pro athletes to millionaire investors and the everyday “9 to 5’er.” He is now inspired to spread his love and knowledge to the world so that everyone can reach the lifestyle they seek. He may come off aggressive and forceful, but his methods are sincere and most importantly, proven to deliver results.

Book Release – “10 Stacks To Success” – A Jay Isip Story…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2014 by Jay Isip

Hey Everyone,REVIEW_flyer

As some of you may know, I am releasing a book on November 18, 2014, titled, “10 Stacks to Success: How to Achieve Success One Goal at a Time.” This is a great moment for me and probably the biggest accomplishment of my life thus far. I would like to share with you a little about myself and why I wrote this book…

Get my book here:


Barnes & Noble:

My Experience

I have been through hell and back and I’m sure we have all done the same in our own ways. I understand the feeling to be lost, depressed, and confused with life. At one time or another, we have all been sucked into the “Black Hole” and have had no idea how to get out. So, after some odd years, I decided I wanted to escape my “Black Hole”, search for help, and change my life around. Long story sort, I did. I was a complete fuck up, fell into deep alcoholic depression, suicidal tendencies, financial debt, but, most importantly, I was lost with myself – It was do or die.

After I changed my life around, I have witnessed nothing but great experiences and have finally found my purpose in life and created my own success, happiness, and wealth. In my book, I share with everyone the attributes that are needed to develop your own personal success. We all have something we want in life that we have yet to experience. We all have dreams in life that we have yet to live. We all have something that tears our stomach in pieces with a single thought. We all have something we wish to achieve. It is because of this that I wanted to share with the world what has helped me become who I am today. I want everyone to realize that we are all amazing human beings inside and can live life in pure happiness. I want everyone to have the opportunity to find out who they truly are and enhance that special person they are inside. We can all become the person we have always dreamed of.

Why I wrote a book

This book was a big goal of mine. I loved every minute of writing and found out more about myself then before. Every single word was written with blood, sweat, and tears. Every single word was written with pure passion, love, and respect. This was one of the most intense projects I have ever accomplished and enjoyed every second of it. My hope is that everyone can enjoy this book and walk away with a new outlook in life because when I die, I hope to be remembered for my knowledge. I hope that my knowledge will make a mark in a positive form to help create a difference in our world. To help change person after person for the greater good. It is my long-term mission to continue writing until the day I die to be able to leave the world a positive message, to leave the world more aware of their purpose, and to leave the world a happier place.

The main problem in the world is people are always searching for answers and searching for something to make them happy, otherwise known, as “IT”. Our problem is that we can never find “IT” and the more we search for answers, the more questions arise. We need to stop searching for “IT” because “IT” is actually YOU. You are “IT”.  It is time to face yourself and begin the journey to find who your truly are.

1959261_10204363869729625_2548804044485954862_nDream Come True

What a dream come true, I had a copy of my first book “10 Stacks To Success” delivered to me while I was away in Florida…

In 1998, I knew nothing about cutting hair, but that didn’t stop me from opening a Barber Shop. In 2000, I knew nothing about MMA but that didn’t stop me from going PRO. In 2008, I knew nothing about the stock market, but that didn’t stop me from running an Investor Relations firm. I stayed back in high school, dropped out of college the 1st day but that hasn’t stopped me from furthering my education. In 1996, was the last time I got an “C” in English Class and only got “F’s” ever since, but that didn’t stop me from writing and publishing a book. You see, we are capable of doing anything we put our our focus towards. Dreams do come true people,you just have to beleive in yourself…

Holy shit, I wrote a book and it was written with blood, sweat, tears, and passion. I couldn’t ask for a better day….

A Nightmare on Front Street – Jay Isip

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on November 6, 2014 by Jay Isip

A Nightmare on Front Street

            Have you ever had a dream where you got into a fistfight, but your punch was as strong as a wet napkin? Have you ever had a dream where you were being chased, but it felt as if your feet were stuck in quicksand? Have you ever had a dream where you were falling from high above and instantaneously woke up in heavy pant like a fat kid in dodgeball? Yes, those dreams where, at every situation, we feel completely paralyzed, helpless, and all we could do is fear and try to run away from the nightmare. Those dreams that felt so real where upon awakening, you questioned for 17 seconds if the dream actually took place. You then come to the realization that it was only a dream and you are safe and sound. Are you really safe though? Do you really feel secure because you are back to the “norm”? On the contrary, this is just another act of running away from your fears, playing it safe, and staying in your comfort zone. The truth is, the nightmares we “experience” are actually simulations of the situation we fear the most. The situation we cannot seem to defeat so we decide it is easier to bail like a cockroach in the light. The situation that makes us fall back into monotony. What is that situation? The fear of facing yourself.


            We must realize that there is no such thing as an “illusion” (unless you are tripping on acid) until we decide it is. There is no such thing as “it’s only a dream” until we decide it is. There is no such thing as a “reality” until we decide it is! We must realize and understand that these are only words that describe a specific thought, feeling, or thing that actually manifests into the physical world. There is always a choice for everything we must do, come across, or even think about. It is up to us to decide in which direction we wish to go. The majority of us often like to make excuses of why they cannot do a certain something. “I can’t because I’m not made for that…”, “I can’t because it’s raining out…”, “I can’t because I’m not ready.” You can’t because YOU ARE A PANSY! Yes, you are a pansy and you are chickening out. It does not matter how you finish the sentence because the cause and excuse of it all is you. You are what is standing in your way. The minute we state the words, “ I can’t”, we have subconsciously already made our decision. The sad part of it is: We have no idea we are actually killing ourselves. We have absolutely no idea of how scared we truly are to reach our higher limits or that we are living our nightmares even when we are wake. In addition, we are just not aware of how our body works. So how do we compensate? We accept. We accept and try not to look back. Wrong. We need to become aware of it all. How do we become aware? How do we realize the things we subconsciously do? Like so:

Try to understand that the brain does not know the difference between a thought, dream, and physical reality. Why else would we wake up in frenzy and question if the dream we just experienced was actually real? All that the brain pictures, visualizes, or imagines is what our brain develops and moves forward into a feeling that will then activate our emotion. Once the emotion sensory is activated through our physical body, we then become conscious of the thought. Do we accept, decline, or ignore the thought? Most of our subconscious thoughts, dreams, and actions are the real reasons why we are being held back from accomplishing the things we wish to do. So, in order to become aware of it all, we have to accept the powerful process of our brain. Accept and understand that a single thought can change our entire subconscious world as well as the physical world. Everything begins with a thought, so, are you willing to start thinking? The world is in the palm of your hands, can you make the difference?


Let’s begin to defeat ourselves by becoming aware of our daily process. When we wake up, are we starting our day with positive or negative thoughts? When we hop in the shower, are we dwelling on the past or visualizing the future? When we get inside our cars, are we even thinking at all or are we zombies to our subconscious? In order to understand how our mind works, we have to transform our thoughts in each segment of our lives. With each step we take, we must unify our thoughts with the proper physical actions. With each physical action, we must unify the actions with the proper attitude of affirmation, happiness, and love. It is these attributes that wil help us manifest the world we previously dreamt of. It is time to detach yourself from your attachments and learn to love yourself and the universe. Trust yourself and believe in the world you live in. Begin each day by thinking of what makes you smile. Choose to defeat yourself by using positivity and retreating from negativity. Choose to beat yourself today with happiness and your “nightmares” will cease to exist… until the next one appears.
