Language is THE Tool

From a very young age I’ve considered myself a wordsmith! I grew up with a speech impediment so speaking was a struggle for me. Combine that with me being an introvert and I was basically a mute as a kid. I soon learned that knowing the precise words to use in certain situations would help lessen the amount of time and the amount of words I had to say(crazy a kid would think like this) And this combined with my mom forcing me to write definitions from the dictionary sparked my love for words, la...

3 Ways To Interrupt Energy Vampires

In this Information Age, energy vampires exist in many different forms. It can be our phones, TVs, the news, work, our families and so on.

Stick To The Basics & Majors

Even as a young kid, Michael Jackson; the greatest entertainer to ever live; sung "A B C/ It's easy as, 1 2 3/ As simple as, do re mi". And in my personal opinion, I believe that's why he achieved the level of greatness that he did. He kept things simple! While studying success over the past few years I've learned that the greats are simplists and minimalists at their core. Although their achievements may massively outdo those of their competitors; at the base of how they operate theirs not much...

Where Is Your Focus?

Ever since high school my favorite truck has been an Avalanche. I love the Chevrolet brand and I love pick-up trucks(it's the Bama in me haha) so it's just something about the Avalanche that stands out to me.

When I saw the 2013 Black Diamond Edition they release to commemorate the end of the Avalanche line I felt better. The vehicle was both rugged and luxurious and it was instantly decided that I woul...

The 3 Areas To #FillTheGaps In LIfe

I have to preface this article by saying there's a difference between easy and simple. The concept of driving a car is simple. You simply press the gas pedal and steer the wheel. But the components or dealing with traffic, watching out for pedestrians, and enduring extreme weather conditions can make it a difficult activity. Get the picture? So with that being said, when it comes to filling the gaps in life it is extremely simple. So simple it's close to being trivial and game-like to accomplish...

Seek Harmony And Forget The Finding Balance Game

Is it just me or has the phrase; "I'm just trying to find balance"; now become the buzz phrase to say. Do people even know what it means when they say it? Or do they use it as an excuse or justification for how chaotic and out of order their life is? These questions are rhetorical by the way. I found that not only do people not know how to find balance; they don't even know how it looks or where to even start! *SPOILER ALERT* IT DOESN'T EXIST! At least not in the way people refer to it when they...

The Power Of Public Declarations

If I am known for anything, if I have any reputation, if I can say anything about me is notorious; it's the fact that I 100% believe in making a public declaration. I never hesitate to hold back and show timidness when it comes to expressing a goal of mine. I bring this up because I've noticed that some people are hesitant to publicly declare their goals for the fear of looking bad. They don't want to tell many people what they plan to do then end up looking bad if they fail to obtain this goal....
