It didn't happen to you

We all experience situations that leave us at our wit's end.

 If you haven't, life has a way of humbling you from time to time. Look forward to it. I'm not trying to scare you here, this is just part of the process. The process of your life's plan unfolding. The process of you becoming better. The process of you overcoming.

Thing is, troubles and circumstances you experience are part of your plan. These situations are in place to create in you a spirit of perseverance and unshakable faith. We aren't certain of what our plans contain, but we can be certain that our life's plan will be prosperous. If you carry that thought process a little farther, every situation is helping you get closer to prospering. One of my favorite authors wrote "In every adversity, there's a seed of equal or greater benefit." Every circumstance, good or bad, is there for you to benefit from. 

In adversity, it's easy to get overwhelmed with emotion and temporary defeat. It's easy to ask "why me?" instead of "why not me?" It easy to give an excuse instead of continuing to pursue your passion. It's easy to stay down if you've fallen. There is an easy way out, but you don't take the easy way out. You scratch and claw until you've accomplished what you set out for. 

It's not over until you win. 

In all things give thanks. 

It didn't happen to you, it happened for you..

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry"

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

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…
