Refuse to let your fears lock you out

Fear runs the world. Countries stockpile weapons, families stockpile food, companies stockpile cash, people miss opportunities, they don’t take chances, and just about everyone worries about many things out of their control >> ALL BECAUSE OF FEAR. Why? Fear is one of the most powerful “drivers of people” that exists. Every single day fear is […]

Life’s quick, carefully choose who you spend it with

There are about 7 billion people wandering around this earth these days. A lot of them are pretty of cool no doubt, and if you’re lucky, you’re gonna have a nice life maybe live into your 80s or 90s or even beyond, and you’ll get to spend it with a select few of those 7 […]

When life grinds you down, stand tall and firm on your convictions

It’s the most important when it’s the most difficult. When you’re tired. When you’ve had enough, and you’re at the end of your rope.  It’s these times when men are crafted from boys.
