Everything is possible


Kevin Hart is one of my favorite comedians in the game right now. 

Say what you want, but I think he's hilarious and this is my blog so save your opinions and understand the point.

Rewind a few years back...

Crazy, I remember sitting in the front row of the Richmond Funny Bone seeing this guy perform for the first time.  Honestly, I didn't know who he was. I went because I was blessed with some free tickets.  I really enjoyed the show and thought he was pretty funny considering all the empty seats. The capacity of that venue is 250. This will be important in a second.

Fast forward a few years......

I watched this same guy bring out around 12,000 people to ONE of his shows! He LITERALLY filled up the Richmond Coliseum! Now you can't even turn on the television without seeing an advertisement for one of his movies or him doing a commercial for a product or 12! Everyone see's his success, but do you think everyone remembers his story? Though they see the shine, do you think most see the grind? 

I politely say no. When he caught his break in the early 2000's he had been in the comedy game over 10 years! Word on the street is a fan, or lack there of, threw a piece of chicken at him while he was on stage once! The good news is all of that was temporary.  

I'm sure there were moments of great discouragement, but he didn't quit and neither should you. You shouldn't give up on your dreams. Don't give up what you want most for what you want now. Moral of the story?  Everything is possible if you're willing to work like it depends on you and pray like it depends on God. 

Salute K Hart! Salute!

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

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…
