Persistence Is The Key

Persistence Is the Key

I’m barely getting sleep
I feel like I’m losing me
I can’t stop now I haven’t reached my peak
I remind my self daily, persistence is the key
Failure is just one step closer to success
I believe Calvin Coolidge said it best
Persistence will set you apart from the rest
So giving in is not an option
Death is the only way I am stopping
I traded in my dreams for goals
I’m not waiting for anything to unfold
I will give my all; until there is nothing left
That final moment, at my very last breath


Happiness Is a Choice!

Today isn’t a day I usually post something but I read an email from a friend that inspired me! So I thought that I would share the fruit of my inspiration with the world, or at least the part that visits my website lol.

Being happy is something you choose to be. It is not the things we have or the situations we are put in that make us happy. Happiness is decided by how we view the things we have and the situations we go through. If we choose to be happy and view life in a positive manner then we can’t help but to be happy. Wake up with the mind set that you are going to have a great day and let nothing change that. You have a choice when things dont go your way you can either focus on the negative and be sad, disappointed, even angry, or focus on the positive and enjoy every moment.

Make the most of every moment. Create memories that you will enjoy forever. When you need a reason to smile look back to the beautiful memories you have created. Be thankful and appreciative for all that you have. It is about what you give not what you get. Appreciate all that you have been through in your life. Learn from the mistakes and repeat the success.

Smile… you will live longer!

The Meaning of the Words

Grammatical Inspiration


I speak, I write, for my and your inspiration

Give not our mind any limitation


Is the message I am preaching

Believe in what you are reaching for

Look NOT at one man’s ceiling, it may be YOUR FLOOR

I beg you to stop and think on what you just read or heard

Because if not then it is just words

Although these words, vividly spoke

Are often just filled with the hope

That someone anyone would listen or read

So they may see that this isn’t just my attempt at beautiful speech

Or just a  talented use of noun, adjectives, and verbs

Yes, it is amazing what one could do with words

But it’s never my intention to be a great writer or speaker

But through my words and actions a great leader

Monday Motivation ( I’m Failing )

I’m Failing

Have you ever sat wondering why am I failing at this? I have always been good at it. Well I was recently reminded that sometimes we must fail at the things we are good at in order to find the things we are GREAT at. We sometimes get too comfortable with good and need to be pushed toward greatness. The baby bird is thrown from the nest in order to fly we too sometimes must be thrown from our nest so that we may fly. Becoming comfortable is one of the biggest reasons for not achieving the goals we set for ourselves. Being comfortable is also a reason that we don’t set our goals high enough. We must always push ourselves to the next level! Look for the complete version of this inspirational article and the poem that goes with it in my upcoming book Help Wanted.

Remember today maybe your last. Live like it!!
