The energy rains down upon me
Channels turn to powerful golden rivers
and there is no stopping me
I’m a creator, born to create
Born to express myself
Born to inspire
Heal myself and others will heal themselves
Climb my mountains and others will climb theirs
This purpose drives me
My survival spins with motivation
My heart runs on passion
Creativity from other life-times gathered up
To build a remarkable life, this life…
What an exciting time, to be alive
And alive I am, no longer hovering
My rings of creativity, vibrating
Singing their tune for me
And I drink the gold, I am a machine
Creativity pours from me
I write, I write and I write
Won’t you align?
Won’t you find?
What drives you…
What inspires you…
Won’t you meet the Earth
And bring heaven with you
playing the drums in your heart
and staring out your eyes at this vicious and beautiful world

I learned early on that in order to achieve success for myself, I would have to take risks. There was no way around it. If I really wanted my autonomy and dreams, I was going to have to build courage and learn to jump. And that is exactly what I did.
Now for the record, just because I decided to take a leap of faith, didn’t always mean I had success. I have failed many times. It’s devastating and embarrassing. But, after failing so much, I kind of stopped caring. I don’t understand the concept of failing once, throwing in the towel and just going about life. Sure, I may fall to the ground and stay there for a while, but I always get back up at some point. I have the warrior spirit within me. It’s the archetype that helps us overcome our obstacles in life.
I am comfortable with taking risks. I like being out on the edge. It’s the place where I get space and perspective. That’s very important to me. Yes, I do get afraid. I don’t believe people who say they are fearless. What I do believe is that some people are more willing to push through their fears to achieve their goals. I remember doing stand up comedy in Wilmington NC. It felt like I was going to have a heart attack waiting to be called up on stage, but once I got up there, the fear went away. Fear is a funny thing. It can stop you in your tracks and keep you from moving forward, but it is just an energy and it can be cleared.
My motivation in life is knowing that if I don’t go big now, I will have major regret later in life. I’m not willing to let that happen. Death is my motivator and I HAVE to have certain experiences before I make my final departure from my body. It’s a must. I am loyal to my cause the way a dog is loyal to its owner. I wake up everyday with full awareness of my dreams. They haunt me like debt collectors reminding me of the consequences if I don’t take action.
Dreams are real. Take a look at history. There are many people who have weaved their dreams into realities. Sure, there is a lot of failure involved, but they are real. After working 40+ jobs, fucking up a lot and receiving a lot of help – I finally found success as an entrepreneur. As I hold onto this piece of my identity, I intend on making another part of who I am shine. The artist. I don’t care how long it will take, but I will make it become a reality. There will be more risks to take, more growth periods to endure, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What risk are you wanting to take?
You have an idea, but then you think, nah, that’s not possible for me. Only the lucky few are capable of achieving something like this. There’s no point in trying…
If you don’t even believe in your dream and don’t believe in yourself, how will you go on to achieve what you desire? It’s easy to get discouraged by competition, fear, the magnitude of the dream, anxiety, judgement, rejection, etc. I always think that talent and luck can be factors in accomplishing goals, but I also think that those who are persistent will inevitably break through the wall. What is this wall you speak of? Well, in simple terms, its the energy between you and your dream.
I remember a long time ago I was at a recruiters office for some military branch and they asked my friend and I if we thought leadership was something that could be learned or if it was something that someone just had within them. I think I recall saying that I believed that leaders were just born with that quality and I still believe that, but at the same time, I do think that anything can be learned.
For example, some people can just pick up an instrument and just play, while others it takes a long time to get good at it. That doesn’t mean that the person who isn’t a natural can’t ever become as good or better of a musician than the other person. The point I am trying to make here is that, we all may have ideas in our heads that excite our hearts, but we don’t even give a real chance because we don’t think it is possible. It’s only for the lucky few right? I call bullshit. If you can day dream about what you really want to do -Nike that shit. Just do it. Most likely you will suck at first. Keep the train on the tracks and eventually you will hit a wall. It will feel like the end of the world. Keep moving forward and that wall will give. It tends to get worse before it gets really good sometimes. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dream. You drink water and eat food to satisfy the needs of your body. What about your soul?
