Lights, camera, ACTION!




We're in a hilariously interesting time of vanity, self service, self promotion, and even social media stardom. Social media has given everyone a chance at a faux and sometimes very real "spotlight." It's given everyone with an internet connection a platform and voice. As a fan of social media and it's reach, I'm not mad at it at all...but I do want to discuss some things. If you own the account you can post whatever you like, I'm no censor....but I do have some questions.

My question is, in the middle of the "Hey look at me?!?" and "Here's what I'm about to do!" posts, who are you trying to convince? I know everyone has become their own publicist....but is it for you or for us? 

Here's the reality. As vain as we are, most of us like the spotlight...if even just a little.  I've even seen the "Most moves less announcements posts...and then what do you see under it? A fucking announcement! lol Because Merica. Some people aren't what they post to be...and that's okay....but let's not fake ourselves out.The worst person we can lie to is ourselves.  It's cool to be in front of the camera, and in the lights...in the building stage of the dream...but let's not stay there. We can post all day about what we're going to do but until we do it...it means nothing.

We've all been guilty of this and it's your feed so post what you like but If you're posting about it more than you're stepping towards it, it's time for a reality check. Am I saying you shouldn't post motivational stuff for yourself or others? Absolutely not. I've done it, currently do it, and I'm all for motivating yourself and or others....and posting motivational material is better than posting twerk videos.... but here's the skinny. You must take action that will move you towards your goals. Develop a sense of urgency for your own life. Stop examining and explaining and start doing. In the great words of DMX Talk is cheap muthafuckas! 

Run towards a goal that will give you a greater sense of purpose, accomplishment, and satisfaction in your own life. Make it happen! 

Fuck the lights and camera....take ACTION! 

So what are you going to DO today?

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
