The above photos are a symbol to me of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone!

For a handful of years, I have wanted to begin a speaking career and while I have done some speaking to push myself, I have been held back by the fear in believing that I would fail.

Now, I know that any failure means I am heading in the right direction to grow, learn and reach the next level! I used up my envelopes, stamps and money to make this investment in myself. This year I will speak to schools, churches and any venue that will have me. I am victorious!

In my hand is the letter that I have typed up to submit to local area high school asking to come and speak to their students. The moment we begin working towards our goals and leave worry about what others might say behind, we begin living a quality of life that 90-95% of the world are not living. Go all in, life is waiting!

“To live an above average life, we must become above average people!” – Jim Rohn

This week I stepped onto the ledge and took a jump!

For years the idea of public speaking was filled with a sense of fear that held me back. It wasn’t the fear of getting in front of others, it was the fear of looking like I didn’t know what I was doing. That is the most debilitating fear that one can have and it is as false as the voices in our minds telling it to us!

This week I sat down at my computer and began writing to every high school in a hundred mile radius and asked if I could speak to their students free of charge. Now that might seem rather risk taking but in truth it is necessary to create a base for my career. Don’t misunderstand me, the farther I will go, I will ask for something like my fuel in return while within this area and later turn this into a career that will support me and my children. The key is to get my plane off the ground and go higher into the clouds.

I’ll admit that I am nervous, but the nervousness is simply a sign of the next level approaching and the time is coming to prepare to grab ahold and pull myself to that level and leave the old one behind!

Whatever your wanting to do in your life, I want to encourage you to go for it and go for it now! There is never a more perfect time like today, like right now! In the words of the old film ‘Captain Ron’, Turn On The Juice And See What Shakes Loose!

 

IT been some time and I must apologize! The past two weeks have challenged my mindset and I felt I needed to step away in order to focus on destination.

There is no word yet on the progress with editing of my new book. While it seems to have hit a snag, this does not appear to harm the release this spring.

I am very excited to say that I am now own a new car as a result of working hard over the past two years to take myself to the next level in my life and career!

I got in an amazing run yesterday and while it may have been on twenty degrees, I always love my runs in the state park!

0205181252Regardless of the setbacks that have come along in the past two weeks, I am victorious and have not slowed one bit!

I can’t say enough about how wonderful 2018 is and will be! This is the year that I continue the journey towards achieving my goals and making my dreams a reality!

It snowed here on Friday, enough that they closed the local schools and I spent the afternoon with my sons in the backyard. We made snow angels, threw snowballs and drank hot chocolate as we warmed up! I may be finding my was to success but it means nothing if I am not making positive memories with my children who are my why!

After my sons went back home, which is just next door as I rent a home to their mother and step-father. I love being so close to my kids and thank my God for allowing such an opportunity to be here. Anyhow, after they walked home, I found myself online when I came across a question from my friend Boyd, a biohacker extraordinaire, who ask for all of his friends to post a song that fit their moods right then.

I had been pumped for 2018 and began thinking of a movie that I had not seen in some time. An eighties movie called ‘The Secret of My Success’ staring Micheal J. Fox. That soundtrack has a song performed by Pat Benetar called, ‘Sometimes The Good Guys Finish First’. I had to post that song!

Thank got me to really thinking about what I still feared and the desire to take those head on! We have but one life and I am a successful author and speaker, now it is time to go out there and get what is mine!

I woke up and went in on this Martin Luther King day (my personal thank you to Dr. King for having his own dream and going after it), and went into work at the high school and helped clear snow off the walkways. I was blessed to use a snow blower but found myself getting quite cold after four hours. I watched as the snow came out and thought to myself, ‘There is more and I am going to get it!’

Now, with school being out tomorrow also due to the weather, I will be returning to work in the morning to do a bit more before moving inside for a short time. It will be a short day but enough to inspire me to work even harder to make each day my own! Before I go, I want to wish you a safe and warm rest of the week. If your reading this and have a school I can come and speak at, LET ME KNOW! We’ll make something happen! Have a great day ahead everyone!!

P.S. I got back into The Boondock Kids today and completed pages seventy-three and seventy-four!

Today is January 11th and it is forty degrees outside. That made for an amazing four mile run! The geese honked and enjoyed the lake as it thawed and I took advantage of wearing less layers to crank out even more effort and getting the most from my moment in the park.
