Step Outside of Yourself…for Family First

As I frequently mention during many of my trainings, “I don’t care where you came from, you can start today to make the choices to take your life in whatever direction you want.”, the same goes for my cousin Tiara Street

 

When you know it's time to rewrite your story.

Coming up, on June 29th I will be providing a platform for my cousin Tiara Street to bring her passion forward to inspire those around her while also working towards an ever increasing life of abundance. This is the beginning of much greatness for Tiara.

It all starts with surrounding yourself with the right people.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Do What You Want, Do What You Love!

Life is short, definitely too short to live it doing something that you don’t enjoy doing. You have to find your purpose, find your passion, find your gift and go at it with your all. It will NOT be easy. You will fall on your face numerous times, but that’s part of the journey! Embrace the struggles and embrace the difficulties! It is only through struggle that we can grow. Welcome all of the difficulties that you can, the more difficulties you face without quitting, the closer you will get to perfecting your craft.

There will be lots of negativity along the way. There will be many people who don’t believe in you and will constantly try to discourage you. They love to see you struggle and pray for the day that you quit. If you quit, they will definitely win. You cannot allow the haters and dream killers to prevent you from chasing your dreams. They will make jokes about you, they will make sarcastic comments, they will dismiss your ideas before they even fully hear them. Don’t be the weak person that allows this to get under your skin and get you down. They will constantly say that you can’t do it. Utilize their disbelief in you as the fuel to prove that you CAN. The best revenge against dream killers and negative people is MASSIVE SUCCESS!

If you really want to be successful at what you love you WILL succeed. Yes, there will be disappointments and failures will happen along the way, but failures are a necessary ingredient on the road to success. You need to taste failure before you can savor the taste of success. Be a humble loser until you win, and then be a humble winner. Don’t allow it to go to your head when you achieve success because you won’t be the talk of town forever. You must KEEP working hard and grinding! You have to continuously hustle to become better than you currently are.

Success is allergic to average. The average person quits after just a few failures. Don’t be average or you will never experience the greatness of success. Push and push and push. Be persistent! Don’t give up and prove yourself worthy of success, but before you consider yourself a success you must have positively affected the lives of others. If you want it bad enough you’ll make it happen, if you don’t, you’ll make an excuse!

Go Live Your Life of Purpose, because Your Legacy Begins Now!

You Become What You Think About

What is it that you think about the most?  Have you ever stopped to think about that; to think about what you think about? Most people don’t think about things like that, and that’s exactly why they will never reach the level of success that they truly aim to reach.

You must consciously feed your brain with positive, enriching, and intellectually stimulating on a regular basis messages in order to really get the full experience of joy, pleasure and success out of life. 
I ask you to examine what it is that you let into your mind during the course of the next 21 days. Conciously keep negative thoughts out while pumping positive thoughts in. Consciously tune negative media out while tuning in to a great book that will stimulate a success mentality. Consciously seek the good in every situation no matter how bad it may appear at face value.  

This task will not be easy for most people because most people allow the negativity in our society to formulate their attitude and way of thinking, and then they become a direct reflection of the negativity that they have let into their mind. Don’t become what the world wants to conform you into, become greater! Be the other statistic; be the 3%. 

21 days of repetition can transform this task into a way of life for you. It happened for me, and it can happen for you. Now get out there and make the world your playground.

Your Legacy Begins Now

Create Opportunity – Minimize Waithood

In today’s school system our youth are taught to go to school, make good grades, then graduate and get a good job. This is how you make something of yourself and achieve success in life. The vast majority of our graduating youth complete their studies with this mentality. For some of them, this plays out very well; within a month or so of graduation they land a decent job with a decent salary and room for growth. They stay with this employer for a few years until they either become complacent and eventually fired, or they outgrow the company and move on to another company which they see as a better choice.

In this article we aren’t going to talk about that group of people. I want to talk about those who follow that path of education yet when they finish they do not find employment. They apply and apply to job after job but never receive that callback for an interview. Occasionally they will get through to receive a phone interview yet they never hear back after that phone interview.  These youth end up in a semblance of limbo where they are looking to take advantage of the first opportunity that comes along. These youth become caught up in what has been coined as ‘waithood‘.

If we look back through the generations at the greatest figures throughout history who have come to shape the world as we know it you will see one thing in common. The vast majority of them were entrepreneurs who didn’t wait for someone to give them a job. The big issue with this is the fact that our current school system does not teach entrepreneurship. This system does not prepare our youth to go out and own their own financial future. This system teaches our youth to be dependent upon a corporation to decide if these they are qualified to work for their company or not. Traditional work is simply not designed for all people, or better yet, the minds of some of our youth are to complex to be squeezed into the conformity of a traditional form of employment. We need more training to show young people how to be entrepreneurs and take control of their financial future.

The human mind is one of the most underused tools and it is at our immediate disposal. We must train our youth to be innovative and use their minds in ways that powerful thinkers of the past did. Modern day entrepreneurs serve as a catalyst for those around them to also become entrepreneurs and or at the least, to have job opportunities. If we indeed promote entrepreneurship we can empower young people to be creators of the very economic opportunities they’re so desperately seeking.
