This organization is in the infancy of its greatness. I am a big proponent of the old saying “ You reap what you sow.”
I am looking forward to engaging in the community and helping young men and women realize their goals and dreams despite the obstacles that life may present.
Everyone’s walk in life is different, and in understanding this basic fundamental of life, my aim is to meet each mentee on their level. In doing this my goal is to help them build a solid foundation from which they can improve.
WE ARE CREATORS
I am a creator, and I am in the business of giving individuals the tools and the ability to become creators themselves.
We can have the life that we want. Ours dreams are just the physical manifestations of our internal desires. With the proper education, guidance and leadership, we can create the reality that we want.
T.F.A.R. - Thoughts lead to Feelings, which lead to Actions, which ultimately lead to the Results we obtain. I first heard this quote from Lynch Hunt , owner and operator of AWOL fitness. This is a variation of the formula E+R=O which I had previously learned about through reading “The Success Principles” by Jack Canfield. E+R=O stands for Events + Our Response= the outcome.
I believe a systematic approach to life using these formulas are the key to obtaining the life that you believe you were meant to live.
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE
Our Deepest Fear By Marianne Williamson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness That most frightens us.
We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small Does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, As children do. We were born to make manifest The glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; It's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.
COMPLETE THE MISSION
See It Through
By Edgar Guest
When you’re up against a trouble, Meet it squarely, face to face; Lift your chin and set your shoulders, Plant your feet and take a brace. When it’s vain to try to dodge it, Do the best that you can do; You may fail, but you may conquer, See it through
Black may be the clouds about you And your future may seem grim, But don’t let your nerve desert you; Keep yourself in fighting trim. If the worst is bound to happen, Spite of all that you can do, Running from it will not save you, See it through
Even hope may seem but futile, When with troubles you’re beset, But remember you are facing Just what other men have met. You may fail, but fall still fighting; Don’t give up, whate’er you do; Eyes front, head high to the finish. See it through
