Have You Arrived

If you are not in your everyday life loving, grateful, humble, contributing, kind, fair, caring, honest, patient, forgiving, generous, tolerant, empathetic, compassionate, and putting others up instead of down, not only have you not arrived, you've still a long ways to go.

Money Wise

The tragic mistake that most make with regards to money, is in not considering themselves a bill. Those successful in building wealth and attaining financial independence not only consider themselves a bill, but the priority of their bills, meaning come payday, contributions to their savings and investments are the first bill that is paid.

Don't be in the majority that come retirement age cannot retire due to insufficient resources, or who have to markedly reduce their standard of living.

You work hard for your money. You should simultaneously have your money working hard for you.

Everyone regardless of income needs a relationship with a financial professional. I'd be happy to help you.

A time will come when you'll wish you still could, so while you can you really should.

Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year 2018

Instead of a new year's resolution, consider a lifetime lifestyle resolution.

Resolve to setting your personal bar high, having no excuses or rationalizations, no settling for less and remain daily consistent and vigilant in the pursuit of doing and being your very best, and in all areas of your life.

Resolve to love and treat others, and with consistency and without conditions, just as you want to be treated.

Resolve to embracing positivity as a lifestyle and to spreading it daily with your smile, words, deeds, attitude, efforts and interactions with other people.

Resolve to liking, loving, valuing and taking excellent care of yourself each and everyday--spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.

Resolve to choose happiness, and daily, regardless.

Resolve to be both dreamer and doer.

Resolve to leaving our planet and humanity in better condition than it is today.

I hope and pray that in 2018 and always, that you are blessed, healthy, inspired, happy, joy-filled, safe, secure, comfortable, fulfilled, making good and wise choices and actively pursuing that which makes you feel good about life and yourself.

It's very important to learn and grow from mistakes. It's equally important that the mistakes you better yourself from are not always your own.

You Are What You Eat

It's tragic, sad and staggering to my sensibilities that 1/3 of the world's population is considered medically obese. The USA leads all countries in numbers of afflicted. We all have a brain and free-will, so there's really no legitimate rationale or excuse.

I'd no sooner ingest the dis-ease causing crap that most do than I would pour ketchup into my car's gas tank or chocolate syrup into it's oil tank. It simply doesn't make sense to do such. My intellect and self-love, which includes caring about my health, functionality, quality of existence and my appearance thankfully doesn't allow me to make such reckless, dangerous and damaging elections.

The moral of this story is PLEASE, take excellent care of yourselves for as long as you can.

No Inspiration - No Life

Inspiration is all around. A favorite source of mine is athletes training for a goal, a specific competition. Their focus, commitment to excellence, discipline, hard work and sacrifice re-energizes my desire to do and be the same, and in all areas of my life.

What Are You Waiting For?

Everyday throughout the day, I tell and show people that I love them. Whether a smile, compliment, helping gesture, pat on the back, acknowledgement, emoji, phone call, text, I love you's written, illustrated or verbal, etc., I'm sweetening my own and others moments and life's by constantly sprinkling sugar.

I love and agree with the saying give flowers for people to smell and enjoy while they're living.

So while you can and for as long as you can, don't be selfish, shy or afraid. Express the best of yourself towards others as a lifestyle practice. There's no better mission, feeling or yielding result.

Less Is Often Times Actually More

Less dis-ease, burden, need, want, stress, anxiety, volume, drama, responsibility, debt, disappointment, frustration, fear, doubt, hesitation, conflict and negativity leaves room and opportunity for more of the opposite, and I assure you, a markedly better quality of life.

The Best

To be and have the best you must want and always do your best. You should never accept less than the best, because you deserve the best. You were born the best, so live the best. You are a child of God, so you are the best.

My Legacy

Long ago I decided that I would be all that I could be for as long as I could be. This encompasses my spirit, mind, body, passions and professions, as well as being aware of, kind to and substantive and thoughtfully participating in relationship with others. This is how I have lived, live, and hope to be remembered as and for. This is my legacy.

Be Yourself

It's hard to stand out while you're constantly trying to fit in. There's no one quite like or better than you, so embrace that fact and choose to be all that you as yourself can be.

Get A Life

Instead of wallowing in self-pity, pining for the attention and validation of another, get a life. No one other than you is responsible for your happiness and self esteem.

You'll find that with passion, interest and hobbies of your own, you'll feel less need for and dependency on the views and attention of others. You'll also find that by being interested and interesting yourself and taking care of yourself physically, that others will accordingly find you more attractive and interesting.

Keep It Moving

Disappointments should be treated like a pit-stop. Pull over, re-fuel, change your tires, clean the windshield, re-focus, get back on the track and do your best to succeed.

April 9, 2017

Stop Settling

You'll stop following, envying, begrudging and even hating those who have more once you stop settling for less. You'll be infinitely happier and feel considerably more empowered. This truth is not limited to money and material things, but includes all areas of life.

A Balanced and Simple Life Is The Best Life

Volume, debt, complexity, obligation, stress and anxiety are as common as blades of grass and unfortunately the life that most unwittingly create and exist or languish in. There is another way, however, have balance and keep things simple.

Faith, family, friends, fitness, finances and fun. The six F's applied as a balanced daily priority first lifestyle practice will remove you from a mundane, common and insecure feeling existence to that of the satisfying, fulfilling and extraordinary.

Never stop working on being the best version of yourself

Don't disrespect and limit yourself by settling for only being a follower of things and others, hero and celebrity worshipper, spectator and fan. You too can shine. Be your own star by being all that you can be.

Good things, relationships, successes, etc., aren't reserved for select others. No one is better or more deserving than you. Good things are available for the making and taking. If you believe, you can achieve and receive.

Investing in yourself daily--spiritually, mentally, physically and socially, will give you the best quality of existence.

Time is precious and important, so don't waste it. It can never be regained nor is it promised to anyone. Don't worry counting your time. Instead be vigilant in making your time count.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so open your eyes, mind, heart and behold. Beauty is everywhere! It's in people, nature, moments, experiences, memories, gestures, places, sights, sounds, taste, smells and so much more. The great thing is that there's an never ending abundance of beauty.

Embrace the light

Though there's much in this world that is fallen, is falling and feels dark, you still can choose to seek and embrace the light.

Don't create excuses - Create opportunities

It's your life. Don't allow anyone or anything, including yourself to limit or stop you from being everything you truly want to be.

That Which Is Best In Life

Loving - Consistently, without conditions, treating others as you'd like to be treated

Giving - Being of help and support to others

Living - Seeking, finding, embracing and appreciating life, daily

Expressing Oneself Honesty - Not lying to oneself or others in that which one says and does

You are blessed

If you're alive, you love and you are loved, you are in fact very blessed! The rest, however, is up to you!

If you want a great life, create one! The responsibility is yours alone. It's not Gods, your parents or the governments. Your successes and failures ride on your choices, ambitions, desires, self image, work-ethic, courage and character. You will ultimately, like it or not, reap what you sow and in every area of your life.

If you have excuses, blame, rationalization, prejudice or feelings of entitlement, yours is stinking thinking, a losing mentality and lesser way of existence.

Instead of perpetually lamenting politics, injustices, sexism, racism, classism and every other type of ism, which yes are real, alive, toxic, wrong, cowardly, immoral, evil and shameful, don't allow them to define, embody, limit or consume you, nor allow them to be obstacles in your life. There are millions, including myself, who choose to love, pursue their dreams, don't accept setbacks as permanent, be happy, be positive, be hopeful and optimistic and live fully and thrive regardless and sometimes in spite of. Control that which you can and trust God with the rest.

If you are honest with yourself and others, you plan your work and work your plans and you take full responsibility and accountability for yourself, your actions and your successes and failures, you'll learn, grow, develop wisdom, accomplish much, be respected and will likely enjoy a full, interesting, contributing and worthwhile life.

Life isn't about waiting for it's storms to pass. It's about learning to and insisting on dancing while in their midst.

November 24, 2016


I don't believe in, or need a man-made designated day to profess or symbolically express gratitude. I'm grateful all day and everyday!

Upon waking, throughout the day and as I lay in bed before falling to sleep, I detail to God what and who I am thankful for. I will, however, as on every thanksgiving day, hit the gym, watch football, feast heartily upon some of this day's traditional foods and enjoy the company of good people.

However you spend your day, I hope it's pleasant in every way.

The Power of Positive Thinking

A positive person anticipates happiness, health and success and believes that he or she can overcome any obstacle and difficulty.

One Thing That Every Human Has In Common

None of us will leave this life without going through some sort of hardship.

Whether the result of poor choices, misfortune, health, loss, relationships, financial, victimization, professional, self-image, etc., it's not if, but when one will be so challenged.

Connection can sustain and help you during hardship. This is truly relevant and important. Let trusted others know what you're going through. You'll be pleasantly surprised to learn just how much some people care.

I am eternally grateful to those who have loved and/or cared enough to gesture when I have bared the weight of hardship. It further inspires me to do the same.

Real Power

You are infinitely more powerful than you realize.

Your acknowledgement, smile, thank you, compliment, encouragement and time given to others, not only can make their moment, hour or day, but in many instances it can deeply positively affect and even change their life.

You are powerful. Know this and choose to use your power to uplift others. In turn you too will genuinely feel good inside.

My Mood

Regardless of what I'm going through, I try to remain conscious of the importance of being grateful. God loves me and I am blessed in many ways, and life no matter how challenging or aweful, real or perceived, could always be worse.

Be A Blessing To Others

My deepest feelings of satisfaction have always come from helping others. Always ask yourself, how can I be a blessing to others today and then act upon it, today, and everyday.
