Stand For Something & Be What's Possible
Nothing is impossible, the word itself is “I’m Possible” Audrey Hepburn
The America dream is to pursue what’s possible by overcoming the impossible. Have you ever been in awe of the one who overcame obstacles and attained what was to you as being impossible?
Allow this as an opportunity to overcome your mental block or ceiling. Each of us was born what abilities, hint towards a marvel comic or movie. But seriously we are all gifted , and all gifts are different even though they seem the same. The variable is you and your uniqueness.
Because of this ability, you were made to overcome someone else’s impossibility and to attain what’s your possibilities. Let me say it another way. You were made for what you will , have and pursuing to accomplish. So there is no impossible for you, and all left is “I am possible “
When you stand in your success, you give inspiration and permission for others to stand in their possibilities and success. I am fully confident that you are great and greatness lives in the inside of you.
When you stand for what is right, you stand to serve humanity. I remember making a stand to a bully when I was in 8th grade. My father taught me to turn the other cheek, but if they laid a hand on you , please respond in kind. I stood up against this bully buy giving him chances to stop, because I wasn’t the only person he was bullying. At this particular time , enough was enough as I heard the last word I could hear from him. I made a slow roasting quick decision to end the abuse and I attacked him, skipping straight to the hands on approach. I didn’t know what I was capable of, all I know is I had enough and others did too.
Looking back at that time, I stood against another to serve humanity. It showed post the fight as I was congratulated and thanked for taking a stand. Here is an acronym for STAND I want you to never forget:
S. Send a Message to Opposition
T. Teach others to be their best
A. Ally with the kindest of Humanity
N. Notice the change in and around you
D. Drive darkness back for light to shine
Let this encourage you today to live in your possibilities and allow the courage to flow to others as an inspiration.

Phases A Secret To Maximizing The Moment
Here is my secret that I’ve adopted the last couple of years and its the work around of the need to get it all done now, I call them phases. Now, this is a serious response to the anxiety and anger I would feel because I didn’t get it done.
I did some self reflection of why this would trigger me and I realized as I looked back over my life especially playing at a high level of football and joining a fraternity, that getting it done no matter what was a I have to do it.
Have you ever felt like, if I start it I had better finish it now? I know there are many others that deal with accomplishment anxiety or the need to see it all the way through. When I was in college and I finished my last year of college football I noticed a number of players that had finished their last game also drop out of college. See, I saw this to me as why would you get this far and not finish what you started?
I am a firm believer of finishing what you started, but even after all these years later maybe it was just phase one for many of them. I need you to understand that in order to uncover this secret to maximizing the moment you need to let go of having to get it done to enjoying the process. Can I share an acronym for the word PHASE that will change your life? Well, if you want to or not here you go:
A- Ask yourself for grace
S- Stopping is ok
E-Enjoy every step
Patience is the mark of wisdom, it isn’t something that comes easily but understood over time.
Honesty is the mark of a humble person, maybe it won’t get done right now or it won’t be perfect the first time.
Ask yourself for grace, there needs to be a level of forgiving yourself for allowing whatever it is to go over time.
Stopping is like saying you know I have run out of steam or ideas and it’s ok to start.
Enjoyment is the victory of life, your joy is something you must hold on to no matter what.
Maximizer take these keys and not only tackle the next project but keep your moments maximized with phases of them.

Forgiveness A Door To Your Greatness.
I want to talk to you today about Forgiveness. Oh, a word that’s kind of just throws you off a little bit. Forgiveness, You are like, no that is really a soft type of word, talking about having a great life, but it’s an uncommon key.
Why is it uncommon? Because there are so many of us, people or human beings walk around living a life un-maximized because we haven’t found forgiveness for certain situations or certain people. Now imagine this, living a great life and having your life maximized by truly implementing forgiveness.
No one talks to you about why forgiveness is so important but I am going to share a really personal story of mine. When I was seven years old, I dealt with childhood abuse over the course of a year. When you are seven years old, you are so young, you are so impressionable and really the trust in older people was broken. And that abuse that happened really put me in the life tail spin where I was trying to figure out why, for what reason, what did I do?
As I grew up, that feeling of lack of forgiveness and confusion came up with me. And I am just trying to understand it, trying to wrap my head around it and figure it out, you know what’s going on here? And that ended up putting me into emotional spin where I was feeling angry. I didn’t trust a lot of people. I felt a lack of confidence in myself, I was co-dependent because I didn’t really know how to really make it in life. And it grew up with me. That anger, that bitterness took a root in my heart and it robbed me, robbed me of a lot of things that I could have experienced a lot differently in life. And that’s what I want to do for you, I want to challenge you to break free. Find forgiveness. Use this key to have a great life.
Key benefits to forgiveness:
Renewed Focus- Shifting your focus on what has happened , to what could be.
Refreshed mindset- a fresh mindset is a wining mindset, the path to success.
Rejuvenated relationships-we need healthy relationships to have success no matter the area.
You know forgiveness is for you. It’s not for the other person — it’s for you. When I’ve come to the point where I was able to forgive, that gentlemen, that young man at that time in his life — that was when my life took off and exploded. Good things started happening to me. I started to create new relationships, find new opportunities and increase my income. My marriage got a whole lot better. There was a lot of things that I had to deal with when it all came down to forgiveness — forgiveness was the answer for me. It was something that released me to having a great life and living my purpose. So forgiveness, it’s for you!

I published this podcast at the beginning of the year and it is now April. We are in the midst of a pandemic but the principles don’t change. We have to gather ourselves and write a better tomorrow. Yes, we have some valleys still to go through but we can not be subject to the chaos around us and drown. Having a better vision for tomorrow is our secret weapon, outside of prayer for those that believe.
Use this amazing gift to be in a tomorrow only you envision, let this vision be of hope, joy, the best version of you and the world around you. Please enjoy and share your vision for tomorrow so others can be encouraged.
Blessings on your journey, I am with you-
Obstacles of life only appear when you are making progress or looking forward to an opportunity. The opportunities can be small or large according to you. If an obstacle presents itself it’s a marker that this is the direction your faith should take you.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen- Taken from the good Book I read. Your belief or faith should be evident to others and to yourself, its always moving forward.
There are many times that obstacles are a clear direction to which way we should turn. An obstacle is clearly just a trial and when trials comes be of good cheer because that is where your overcoming spirit lies and the direction you should go.
Listen I understand by human nature that we want and hope that life is simple and easy. Let’s come to reality and say that it’s not always. For the Maximizer that wants more out of life , expect there to be many obstacles and the most of which are internal.
The battle we face is greatly one from the inside out. We our own selves challenge our motives and purpose moment by moment day by day and we have to fight for what we see to be the greater story in our lives.
The battle we face is greatly one from the inside out.
Never back down from a challenge, embrace it and truly be aware that there is an answer in the room , even if you are alone!
