pray everyday

Pray for clarity and direction in this time, pray for good health and protection when you go out for your essentials. Pray for resources to cover your rent and bills. Pray for the well being of your loved ones. Anything else at this point is a bonus and God’s favor. In this time I hope you realize what really matters, what never did and what always will.

get comfortable being uncomfortable

At this point I believe we have more mental distractions than we’ve ever had before. Social media can be a cesspool of misinformation and mental manipulation and with that comes outrage, sadness, and despair. But even with that, I sincerely hope that you are able to recognize that there are also beacons of hope, optimism and ingenuity.

the 4th quarter, where legends are made (2018)

We must keep in mind that greatness is a journey, whereas success is a destination. Much deeper than what short-term success can bring such as monetary gain, awards, and accolades, greatness is something that is achieved over time, through wisdom, leadership, and service. Greatness is an embodiment of your legacy, the joy you bring to those close to you as well as the positive impact you have on the world.
