This letter is a personal message of encouragement to all of you who’ve been trying to climb life’s challenging mountains, but sometimes feel you’re always coming up short. Just remember, you’re not alone. Most of us share similar struggles, similar pain, similar “Oh, so close!” experiences, yet we still keep on climbing!
One of my favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 27:17 – “As iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend”. A true friend ENCOURAGES, MOTIVATES, LISTENS, and is TRUTHFUL (no candy-coating, but done in kindness).
Always remember that whatever it is in life you wish to achieve, you cannot do it alone. We’ve all heard the term, “Success can be a lonely road”, and yes I do agree, however, if you can find one person in life that ever achieved success ALL BY HIMSELF or HERSELF, it would be a first!
Although the task might seem insurmountable – or maybe life sometimes gets in the way of your goals…………STAY THE COURSE! NEVER GIVE UP…..and find a true FRIEND!

TAKING TIME TO DO THE THINGS THAT REALLY MATTERS
So, this past weekend I was determined to get caught up on a lot of work stuff! I mean real work STUFF!! You know that feeling you get when you’ve knocked out all your chores, all the to-do’s, and you’re ready to get to the REAL work, but suddenly you get a tug from this big bright-eyed 10 year old asking, “daddy, can you go for a bike ride with me at the park?”……”Can you? Can you? You promised! You really promised! You said you would! You really did”! Continue reading “SWITCHING IT UP!”
Happy Mother’s Day!
I hope you enjoyed your mother’s day celebration, and shout out to all of you awesome mothers!! Everyday is truly mother’s day! A mother’s touch makes everything feel better. She is there when you’re sick with soup and big hugs. She is there to comfort you when no one wants to play with you at the new school – remember? Mothers are intuitive and nurturing and play a key role in all our lives. Happy mother’s day moms – everyday! Continue reading “Every Day is Mother’s Day!”
Discipline The Mind and Body
Are you starting your day off with a little exercise? If your answer is yes then that’s five gold stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ for you! That’s right! Whether it’s at least thirty minutes of walking outside or on your treadmill at home or even hitting some weights at your local gym, exercising the body is a healthy way to start your day (that’s of course after your prayers and meditation. At least for me that is). After years of abuse – it’s time to discipline the mind and body and it won’t be easy – you have to exercise discipline.

Find something to be thankful for
As I sit in my comfortable brown leather chair (it’s not really mine. It’s the property of a coffee shop) listening to the beautiful lyrics of “A song for you” by the the amazingly gifted singer/songwriter, Donny Hathaway, thinking, “what topic of interest would I like to share with you all today?”, it suddenly dawned on me, “why not ask everyone to just stop and give GOD thanks! Continue reading “Give GOD Thanks!”
The GAME is changing
I guess I can call myself an industry O.G. (sounds funny but true). I think it’s fair to say I’ve been in the game (acting/filmmaking) long enough to say I have Hollywood STREET credits. Twenty years ago, I was one of the few actors of color fortunate to be on a hit television series (Disney’s “The Famous Jett Jackson”). The show’s creator is the talented Fracaswell Hyman, who happens to be African-American. Continue reading “Opportunities Not Handouts”
What’s Your Next Move?
As 2017 winds down, I think it’s fair to ask, “What’s your next move going into the New Year?”. How often do we find ourselves caught off-guard because we weren’t ready, we didn’t prepare for all the opportunities that could potentially cross our paths? Continue reading “It’s All in The Preparation”
Success is Right Around The Corner
Far too often I see people with promising DREAMS and or IDEAS get so close to the finish line only to throw their hands up and give up when success was right around the corner. I know that most of my articles have been more inspirational than any other categories and believe me that’s no accident! Continue reading “Weathering The Storm”
