Hello, welcome to my site. I have been a lot of things in life a son, a father, a husband, a family member, a friend, an athlete and many more. The most important thing I have realized being so many things to so many people is to be optimistic, have a plan, and take action. Life gets tricky some times, it will test you and see how durable you are, and after it is done testing you, it will test you again. If you are an optimist, have a plan and be a person of action and there will not be anything you cannot handle. Remember, there is greatness in you!
When I was younger I had a biological dad leave me at the age of 5. I was a very heavyset kid in school where I got picked on for my weight, and I had my fair share of racist remarks as well. It’s tough being the kid who does not quite know why his dad left and why people could be so cruel. The good thing is I had a very supportive mom, and she remarried a very supportive man who I know and love as my true father to this day.
Things really started to change for me when I started to ignore all the noise and focus on being the best me that I could be. I really took the time to invest in myself and do right by myself. I read books, exercised, started eating right, made plans to do things, and took action on accomplishing my goals. Putting all of this things together made me happier, and I realized people actually started to treat me better. Everything started coming together for the better. Now this isn’t to say there are no hard times, but when they come I am ready for them!
What I have learned as a person is the only person who can change you is you. I do know that having my family and the right friends on my side made the process a much easier one. Also, being optimistic, having a plan, and taking action is huge when it comes to getting to where you want in life.
Now optimism, planning, and action are more than just words though. It’s about practicing them, surrounding yourself with people who will help you implement them, and finding a way to be resourceful when you do not have the resources. Optimism is easy to be when times are good, but you have to practice it for when times are bad too. When life, friends, family, or whatever tells you that you cannot do something or be something. If it is in you to do it, and it is your destination, or passion, having the optimism and belief in yourself to be your best you, that is what it is all about. So remember to be optimistic, have a plan, and take action. Greatness is in you, and it is up to you to bring it out.
I am going to make a list because I believe it is easier but I always ask what do people want in life
1. To be the greatest you
2. To be happy
3. To enjoy their loved one’s
4. Love yourself
5. Respect yourself
6. Treat other’s the way you would want to be treated
7. Invest in yourself
8. Know that you can
9. Triple down on your strengths
10. Be your best you
So I ask you, what is it that you want in life?
