This is the 200th blog post I’ve written since 2015 when I started my first website. An average post is around 600 words–sometimes less, sometimes more–which means that I’ve written, so far, an average of 120,000 words. Most novels are about 40,000 words. So that means I’ve written about three books worth of blog content. Not to mention the books that I have written that are separate from the blogs; Choice and Triumph(2016), Be a Hero to Your Heart(2017), Two-Step Success(2018), Karyeator(2019).  Read More


Have you ever sat back and wondered where the hell that breakthrough is? You know the one. After you faced the storms and had yourself ripped apart and torn to shreds.

What if I handed you a strange looking object that you really weren’t sure about? You didn’t know what it was, what it did, what it could do… It just looked kind of futuristic and mysterious. And after I handed it to you, I told you that it had a type of magical power. It could make all of your dreams come true. The car, the house, the debt-free living. Maybe a little fame and some fortune. All of this, but it all rests within how you handled this curious object that I gave you. Read More

Couple Things

It takes some time to figure out what you really want to do with your life. Or at least figure out something that you’re passionate enough about to put your whole heart into. You have to try and fail at a few or a lot of things before you finally fall into the rhythm of your heart’s desire. It’s a fun and frustrating ride. You just can’t get so caught up in worrying about success and whether or not you’ll obtain it, that you’re no longer paying attention to what’s going on right now because your thoughts are solely on tomorrow. It’s ok to think ahead to tomorrow and have a five- or ten-year plan, but today is pretty important. Now, it’s not going to be easy working on your craft and building toward your ultimate goal—meaning, everyday isn’t going to be a picnic even though you’re doing your heart’s work—but if there isn’t ANY joy in the work that you’re doing, then you’re probably on a flawed path. At least a flawed path for you. Read More
