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. […]

The Text that Changed Everything

The other day I was mentally and physically exhausted. Due to a gauntlet of recent speaking engagements, book promos, and entrepreneurial ventures, I was running on fumes. With more opportunity comes more responsibility and more stress. I’m so excited about the partnerships, businesses and upcoming book releases that I’ve been blessed with that it’s hard for me to want to stop and take time for myself. But that flipside of that is sometimes I don’t take care of Me sometimes. […]

The Day I Killed Superman

For most my life, I suffered from a terrible disease called “Yes.” “Yes, I can help you with that,” “Yes, I’ll attend that event of yours,” “Yes, I can do that,” yes yes yes. If someone asked, the answer was always yes. I used to think I was just a helpful guy and took pride in being there for everyone, all the time. That’s what we’re supposed to do, help others when we can right? In my mind, I was […]
