Are you AFRAID to be great?






We all know that woman who LOVES to cook and entertain, we tell her she should open a restaurant. She normally responds with something to the effect that she's flattered, she's thought about it, but she thinks she'll fail. 

We all know the artist who is their own worst critic. Their work is amazing but they can't see it. 

We all know the person in Corporate America who has the best business idea, but isn't quite ready to step out on faith. 

We see and walk past these people everyday. What's stopping them?

We all are born with a specific set of talents and abilities. I believe, no matter your religion, everybody was blessed with certain gifts. Chances are you believe you have certain gifts too. There's something that you're good at that others struggle with. You know that thing that people practice for years and you can make look easy? The thing that sets you apart from most people you know? Maybe there are several things that answer that question. Yea those! They may be your gifts!

Now that we've established what some of your gifts are, are you applying them? 

Our creator gives us gifts so we can affect those around us in a positive way. 

Are you affecting those around you? 

If the answer to that is 'no'...why not? 

Our gifts , with nourishment and nurturing, can affect many in our communities, cities, states, countries, and in some cases the world!


Will you practice and build your craft? 

Will you apply your gifts to change lives around you? 

Will you change the world? 

Will you be great? 

Or are you afraid?

Let's get to work..


Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?” — What Steve Jobs

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
