You all have survived another week! Doesn’t it feel great? I hope you all had a great week and accomplished the things that you want to do. Just remember as we enjoy another weekend, somebody is working to pass you up! …are you going to let that happen? Don’t rest to much…

This guy is serious and don't play any games! ..I laughed but he is so serious. I had to post it! Enjoy..

Any journey that you start, either if it’s a thousand miles, or just twenty feet…it all starts with that first step. I hear so many people say they wish they had this, that, and everything in between…The thing that amazes me is most about these people, is most of them have not even taken the first step to getting what they want. I mean, they make it seem as if these desires that they have are just going to fall in their lap. Anything that is worth having in this world is not going to be handed to you, or be easy to obtain by any means…somewhere down the road you are going to have to put in the work.

The approach that I take is to not have a great desire of money and material items… but to have a desire of success, and to have a desire of success; I have to have a BURNING DESIRE TO WORK! If I position my focus there, I know everything else will fall into place.

Matthew 9:37 says… “The harvests is plentiful, but the laborers are few”

What a beautiful day it is…

Not in the sense of the weather, sunshine..or lack thereof. But in the sense that we are lucky/blessed to even see this day.. That we have the opportunity to express ourselves however we feel. That we have the choice to add to the hate, or increase the positive. To continue to gain .. or to give back. To think/talk about the change .. Or be the change. To talk about love .. or show love

See we live in a universe now where it is very hard to see and feel love. We as mortals in this world get so caught up in life that we probably don’t even notice it. Love is a beautiful thing, and should be seen and felt in many different behaviors and acts of life.

Every day we walk out our house, there are a million of things going on around us. People looking unhappy, road rage, drug deals and people dying.

Why is this a norm and a custom of what this universe is…is this what we are here for? Is this what we are to experience? Is this what we are to see and do nothing to change?

Think of everything that has happened in this world because of the lack of love…

Love is; but isn’t complicated at all! Loving you is loving me! If you love the universe, it will love you back. If you love people, they will love you back. If love is a place where you want to go...first you must go within. Be genuine and you will be felt…

Ok, on the count of three…I’m going to my fantasy…

Unless you are willing to drench/saturate/douse/flood/soak/over flood/immerse and engross yourself in your work beyond the capacity of the average man, you are just not cut out for positions at the top

This is a very thirst and hungry universe that we live in. The next man is always working harder than the net man! What are you doing to put yourself on top?

As the weekend approaches us…will you look at it as time to rest, or will you look at is as a time to get ahead because the average man is resting!

You will only go as far as you want to.

Are you cut out to be on top?

I apologize to you all right now…its been like two weeks since I hit you with something. My world has been super crazy/busy and I’m just trying to make sure I balance everything. Working a full-time job and being a full-time student is serious business. And then of course I love to work out and play basketball…got to have some me time in there somewhere. I think I’m finally finding that balance of what is needed of me to be successful in all that I do. If I’m ever involved in something, I have to do it to my best ability…no half stepping my way.

But yo I got something to tell you... So the weather here in Iowa has been crazy nice…I don’t understand it, but I’m not going to complain! But, I went to the car wash the other day…I hadn’t washed my car in about a month. And for those who know me, know I keep my car clean. But as I was vacuuming my car out, I couldn’t help but notice this older couple that walked by. I don’t like to judge people but the thing that stuck out to me was that they seemed to be in poverty/or lower class. By making that assumption and watching them walk away…so many thoughts have crossed my mind.

This couple was not dressed nice, not well groomed, and didn’t seem to have what the world calls the nicer things in life. Who know their circumstances…but I do know one thing; that was one beautiful sight!

…I couldn’t help but to think about obstacles they may have overcame together, how long they been together, how much they have to walk to get to places they need/want to be, how much pain and suffrage they have went through, if they have family, how they got to where they are today. So many thoughts continued to poor out….

But as I continued to watch them walk together…they had the biggest smiles I have seen in a while, and a glow that you could not look past.

Who knows if any of these thoughts that came to my mind are true? …and I know my assumptions about them may be ignorant. But I do know one thing. This couple made me realize that there is always something to smile about!

Let’s work on not getting caught up in the world! But let’s enrich life, and pay it forward! I’m sure there are many things going on in your life that can keep you down…but I bet there are many things happening that can keep you up. You have to be high when your low! I know the world is ugly, but it’s also beautiful! What are you doing to enhance that beauty?

We all have a role and a special purpose. Whatever you do…don’t forget to smile!
