Most people dream of publishing a book.


When we think about how lucky someone else is in their career, know what happens to our psyche?

We sabatoge it.

We stifle it.

We do many things, except get a grip and understand that at one time, they were exactly where we are now.

Tenacity, perseverance, determination, and milestones.

Absolutely, positively. No quitting.

Do Not, Under Any Circumstances

Yesterday was an awesome day.

How was yours?

Everyday should be an awesome day, even the ones that pin us down and make it difficult to breath.


Because that’s the way life works.

Pretending it doesn’t is foolish.

Don’t be an educated fool.
