How to Become a Dragon

Every Sunday, I (along with millions of others) anxiously await the newest episode of Game of Thrones.  Whether you follow the series, one of the central plots revolves around a queen and her three dragons, long thought to be extinct. Watching queen Daenerys Targaryen ride into battle on a giant fire breathing dragon gave me chills and had me thinking to myself “if only I had a dragon, I would be unstoppable.”  I thought about how cool it would be […]

It Takes a Village

The other day someone told me, “it must be so cool to just go to all these places and stand up there by yourself and inspire people with your message.” I kindly told her thank you but what I really wanted to tell her was how far from “by yourself” my messages are. In fact, there are so many people involved in each of my speeches, talks, or whatever you want to call them, that by the time I get […]

Taking a Stand for The Future Generations

I grew up in the small town of Abilene, TX. My dad’s black and my mom’s white and I can’t recall either of them ever talking to my siblings or I about race, you know why? Because they didn’t want us growing up looking at skin tone. They wanted us looking at the heart and integrity of the people we interacted with.   In third grade, my neighbor asked me, “are you Mexican?” I didn’t know what she meant, so […]

A Slice of Humble Pie

Have you ever gone through life believing you were something and one day learned that you weren’t? That’s what happened to me recently in a conversation that changed my perspective on a lot of things in life and can no doubt help you succeed in yours. While on the phone talking to someone special, we were discussing differences in our personalities and the characteristics we saw in one another. At some point in the conversation, I mentioned that I adored […]

Photoshop Life

Photoshop is used heavily in the print industry to alter photographs and enhance images. It is used on magazine covers to make models appear flawless and skinny to give the reader a feeling of inferiority, which the magazines then give you product advertisements to help you “look flawless and perfect.” In a nutshell –   Photoshop is used to create a public perception that is not necessarily true.   Now, it appears that Photoshop is rampant and used everywhere and […]

Life Lessons from a Brazilian JiuJitsu Class

You ever have one of those experiences that you go into just to try something new and end up leaving with enough life lessons to write a book about? That’s what happened to me the other day.  Mark, A friend of mine, invited me to try out a Brazilian Jiujitsu class up at Allen Jiujitsu Club.  The closest thing I’ve ever come to Martial Arts is watching UFC or playing Street Fighter on Super Nintendo. But it seemed fun, so […]

Life Lessons learned from Starbucks

I sat here this morning in my usual spot at Starbucks at 6 am and ponder what to blog about. Should I write about how crazy the world is because the front of the newspaper is filled with all kinds of terrible things happening? Should I write an inspirational piece about ancient Maori warriors crossing oceans on canoes and then burning their canoes to give themselves no escape and thus having to fight to gain control of the new island […]

Life is a game of Chess

I’ve lately become addicted to a simple game on my iPhone – CHESS. It’s quickly becoming an addiction; Reason being is that I see so many similarities between the game of Chess and the Game of Life. We all must play on the same board. We’re all made from the same substances. He who thinks many moves in advance is the one that wins. The parallels go on and on, but have you ever stopped to think about the pieces […]

The Life Diet

Lately, I’ve been blessed with some amazing friends who take health so seriously that I can’t help but want to make better decisions. My good friend Julian’s one of the most disciplined people I’ve ever met when it comes to health and life, (check out his amazing podcast) and my friend Laura D has lost over 100 pounds NATURALLY. Being around them has inspired me lately. I think in anything if you want to be something, hang around people who […]

Take a Chance

Tomorrow marks the five-year anniversary of jumping into the world of authorship. In those five years, so many things have changed in my life, yet the mission never changed – Help people.   Five years ago, I didn’t have a plan. I knew I had made some mistakes, battled my personal issues, and new I didn’t want anyone to repeat my mistakes and didn’t want anyone to have to suffer heartbreaks because of meeting people as I was back then. […]
