“Meek, What do you think is the biggest reason people fail?”

I've often been asked, “Meek, What do you think is the biggest reason people fail?” 

I can easily answer this question with one word…inaction. 

It doesn't matter if it's caused by fear, laziness, circumstance, or any other excuse people can come up with. Inaction is inaction and inaction will not get the job done! 

If you're serious about your goals you'll take action. So many people want the prize but don't want to pay the price! 

Can I tell you a secret friend? It won't work. 

Dreams don't work unless you do!

And to the believers, I'm all for standing on God's word & promises, however God will show up when we do our part. The key is, we have to do our part! The book we read says faith without works is dead. Rather than sitting around waiting on God to bless us, we must work and give God something to bless!  

He blesses the work of our hands, are you giving him something to bless? Indeed, God is still in the blessing business but we've got to have some "skin in the game."  I think this philosophy is best described in the quote "Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you!"

Avoid failure… take action!

Get out there! Do something! Do anything. It will be okay if you make a few mistakes, none of us have ever been perfect. The important thing is you're on the move. Do something each day to get you closer to your goals. As long as you're doing something you're going in the right direction. but by God take action! 

The man of action will beat the man of theory any day. 


Don't be this guy! 

"The best thing you can do is the right thing; the next best thing you can do is the wrong thing; the worst thing you can do is nothing." -- Theodore Roosevelt.

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…

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…
