Turning The Page To The Next Chapter

Everyone’s life is a novel of highs and lows. Where your book reaches the climax is ultimately up to you. Sometimes we think we are at our highest and something or someone comes along and pushes us to uncharted territory. How we get there is a mute point. Getting there is really all that matters.

Life has a funny way of showing us that our destiny may be within reach but we have to make sure we can pave the road to achieve the highest levels of success. Sometimes drifting off the beaten path teaches us lessons that make life a little easier when we get back on the road to success.  Continue reading “Turning The Page To The Next Chapter”

Taking Steps But Holding Perspective

A long time ago man was faced with the conundrum of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Man had to find a formula that allowed them all to correlate and still survive what the world and universe had in store for him.

Things get thrown at us all the time that warrant a reaction. Whether that reaction is good, bad, or just necessary is a large part of what defines us as human beings. In some cases the actions may save a life, and in others it may cost us one. In some cases the actions may cost us our freedom or increase the possibilities of our freedom. The common denominator in all of this madness and decision making is pursuit of happiness.  Continue reading “Taking Steps But Holding Perspective”

Memorial Weekend Hybernation

The Memorial Day Weekend started with a bang. Who doesn’t like a three day weekend? Aspiring to do things that you wouldn’t normally get to do because you have an extra day to account for free activity is a must. This weekend is big because it marks the beginning of golf season which everyone knows is my passion. It also marks the official opening of swimming pools across the United States. Both are win situations because one brings me solitude and peace while the other brings me visual pleasure.

This year Memorial Day got off to great start. Friday I spent time chopping it up on the cell phone and then when my work day was over I got the car washed and hit the road. Had to arrive at a decent time because Saturday morning was golf. Continue reading “Memorial Weekend Hybernation”

The Social Media Conundrum


Social media was developed with the idea of keeping people engaged. It connects people from all walks of life and allows them the opportunity to share their interests as well as learn from what others are doing to empower themselves. Several people have made a living from their exploits on social media. Social media has offered plenty of opportunities to myself and people that I know. Jobs from blogging, sports commentary, to talk shows have been granted as a result of peoples exploits on social media. Continue reading “The Social Media Conundrum”

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of …

Day after day we take calculated risks to assess our importance but also to legitimize the angst of our daily hustle. We work countless hours looking to build in a system that is designed to hold us down. The vicious cycle of life will humble you every opportunity that presents itself if you aren’t readily equipped with the instruments to defend yourself properly.

The system is flawed because in order to get a good job, you need a good education. The problem is that a good education costs money that you don’t have. That creates a vicious cycle that has people feeling like they are under a rock. The pressure of borrowing money takes a toll but it is a necessary evil to begin the process of your dream. After borrowing the money, the pressure to perform at a high level in school is real.  Continue reading “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of …”

Dream Chasers

Too many times in life we take the road that’s the easiest. Too many times in life we find ourselves glazing at the obvious because it’s comfortable. Why do we accept it when we should be able to risk it all? Why do we allow ourselves to relish on mediocrity instead of pursuing our dreams?

Life comes at you fast and before you know it, you’re a 42 year old person with only a marginal amount of items on your bucket list crossed off. You had dreams of being wealthy or at least being your own employer but yet you still work for the man and you can’t find the time to get anything you want to get off the ground rolling because you have so much on your plate.  Continue reading “Dream Chasers”

Know Thyself But Grow Thyself


When you access your life you learn a lot about yourself. You have to know enough about yourself to analyze and see if you are fatally flawed. Some of us have been philanderers for a large part our adult lives. Sadly most of us have never had a problem with it either. As we grow older and access our relationships going forward, we have to really dial back on our excessive means and lock in on what is most important or we are doomed to fail. When you take a good look at all the relationships your actions have cost you, it should make you invoke reason as why and how you have lasted as long as you have in any relationship that you have had.

The American Dream is settling down and having a family that you can be proud of. The problem lies in the fact that most men really never want to be in one place for a long period of time.
