    I see myself in people, the thoughts the vision and even the lack of confidence that is covered and molded by attitudes and insecurities. Our negative world teaches us to not be kind, but to be selfish and cruel. The greatest challenge I faced was humbling myself and learning that it’s not what happens to you, but how you respond. That’s everything.

    Inevitably something is going to happen an life takes its course but it’s a different feeling knowing despite what people think about u you continue to be you and do good. I believe I was chosen to live this. No one knows what plan is in the works and I can already see it manifesting. I just hope that ignorance doesn’t stop their growth, the growth of a race, or the growth of endless knowledge to which we are exposed.

    As a writer, and even more now as a thinker, we are a a critical part in history. A part where we are viewed as the new age, the “millennial” of present day, which allows my mind to imagine the many works we can do together. I am inspired to do more for our culture and community, why you may ask? It’s simple, genetics! We are descendants of Kings and Queens. The help that we need is not money or houses or jobs. It’s the…(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

    Comeback Power


    As the semester begins and the routine turns back into reality, I find it is important to have a vision and goal going forward.

    I believe the reason we settle for things that we know do not benefit our lives is because of fear, doubt, and the harsh reality of failing. When you realize your ability and worth, you expand your vision and look within and resolve to yourself that you have something within you that can enable you to be stronger and more powerful than anything around you.

    “Come Back Power!”; something inside you that can enable you, that forces you to be better and stronger than anything out here.

    Surround yourself with those people who feed your success and vision.  If you are serious about your success, get serious about effort to make that dream come true.

    Once you know who you are, you(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

    I am a living witness that if you continue to press on and don’t give up, your dream will become a reality.  If you put your effort and energy into anything, it’s possible.

    I believe I was put on this earth to inspire people and give them that undying hope that if I made it through situations then surely you can. I don’t sell dreams of making millions of having fancy cars, there’s no substance in that. I want you to be inspired and passionate to the point, success is all you think about, you no longer settle for mediocrity!

    We live in a generation of “talkers.”  We talk about how good we want to have it, but what real steps do we take to make this dream a reality?  Your focus should be on what you constantly can’t get off your mind. You should have a WHY for everything you do.

    This life of which we are a part gives you a platform to do and be anything you desire, but it won’t ever happen if you don’t put your all into everything you do. If you’re worrying about what this person is doing or how a situation has impacted you, you’ll(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

  • What Does It Mean To Be A Man?
    Comments Off on What Does It Mean To Be A Man?

    What does it mean to be a man?

    Does it mean to think concretely into the ideas of what it means to be a man?  Is it about who inspired the role you take as a man and who assisted in that development?  What being a man means to me, no matter color or ethnicity, is that you are of the male sex and you also carry yourself as you were taught when you were raised.

    The male role is so strong in today’s society that we are often looked at to lead.  Whether it’s within the household or with parenting a child, the male, at least in my family, has played the role of disciplinary just as much as a mother.

    Sadly, many of the men have no examples within their own home to show them, so their idea of being a MAN in today’s society is guided by a television and advertising markets or some other model that could care less about the development of a man while watching their show or buying their clothes.

    Its tricky how societal beliefs can change how being a man is defined or standardized in a way so bad that we can’t be unique men without being looked as “less than a man.”

    When I was growing up, I…(CLICK HERE to Read More…)

    Securing Your Legacy


    Like many of Americans we all believe in being great individuals both socially and career wise. However, even fewer really work towards that goal of greatness.  For those who doubt themselves (we all do) here is some encouragement on this Monday; we all have the ability to change someone’s life.

    How you choose to affect that person is solely up to you. That’s the power we have. When you appreciate this gift, you have this overwhelming amount of urgency to help those who in many situations cannot help themselves. Here are three questions to ask yourself as you go about your day.

    1. At this very moment, what could I be doing toward fulfilling my current goals? Have I reached the place of complacency or am I still hungry, fighting for what I want?
    1. Am I making the…(CLICK HERE to Read More…)
