The battle against selfishness is one of the greatest battles we will ever fight. We want for someone else to give to us, to serve us, to help us, to choose us. We want to get the massages — everyone does. Read more…

I hate to be so morbid, but most of us like to think we’re so different from everyone else. And we are. That our path of life is unique to us. And it is. The truth is, we’re all headed in the same direction: to the grave. And as much as we don’t like to talk about it, there is nothing we can really do to change this course. Except, we can live our best lives, do our best work, and leave our best legacy behind for others to enjoy.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

RISKS (Live. Pray. Hustle. 03/13/17)

RISKS (Live. Pray. Hustle. 03/13/17)

We take risks with the expectancy that we will achieve a certain result. The odds are always equal parts negative and positive. There is no such thing as a safe risk. To risk anything is at its very core not to know what is going to happen. For many of us, the unknown is a very scary but unavoidable proposition. If we fail to go forward, we may never know what the outcome could be. If we know too much, we may never follow the path we were meant to take. There can be no growth, no progress, no achievement without risk.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

PAST (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/27/17)

We’re told to forget about our past, to leave it behind, to not dwell on what cannot be changed. This advice should be heeded because to live in a place that cannot be redecorated or redesigned is eventually tiresome and fruitless. However, sometimes, we run too fast away from the place where we should really be sitting on the steps and learning, growing, and becoming. Our failures which we all have but rarely like to talk about are a significant part of who we are. We wouldn’t be where we are or who we are without it. No, we shouldn’t live there, but yes, we should embrace what was. The past should be a point of reference, not a place of residence.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

WORK (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/21/17)

We all have to work. Nothing happens without it. But work is extremely more enjoyable and meaningful when it is directed toward a goal. Work for the sake of work is usually unfulfilling. It is only a means to pass time and make money. Work that results in achievement demands that we put that much more effort into it. When we’re excited about where we’re going, we are more likely to do whatever it takes to get there.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

REASONS (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/19/17)

REASONS (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/19/17)

We’ve been told that all things happen for a reason but sometimes that is hard to believe especially when you have no clue as to what the reason is and Why? Why? Why? is the question reverberating in our heads. But I’m here to tell you that nothing you experience in life is insignificant. You may not see its meaning in the moment because clarity is hard to come by in the midst of chaos. When things get chaotic, we tend to get caught up in it or start running; it’s the human physiological “fight-or-flight” reaction. But trust me, everything happens for a reason. And when the dust settles and the fog clears, that reason may become more evident. When we focus on the reason more than the experience, we develop character that produces necessary change.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

LOVE (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/14/17)

LOVE (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/14/17)

We are required to love ourselves. We are commanded to love others. But no one is required to love us back. Because when we love, it should not be an obligation. When it becomes that, it ceases to carry meaning, show acceptance, and bear light. The fire and feeling that we call love is incomprehensible to our minds but perfect for our hearts and souls.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

TESTED (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/12/17)

TESTED (Live. Pray. Hustle. 02/12/17)

Faith, at its essence, must be tested. If it is not tested, it cannot be called faith because it will be unknown what it can stand against. This means that at times, we must be broken. We must know what it is like to wrestle and battle with external and internal forces. We must understand what it means to experience pain, suffering, and heartbreak. These experiences, that if we had the power to do so, we would simply bypass in life, are meant to build our faith.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.
