One decision cost me everything I had at one time in my life. I lost everything, my family, friends, became homeless, lived in my car for 3 years. BUT I had a vision and I pursued it. The first time that I walked into Hilarities Comedy Club at 27 years old and won amateur night, I knew this was the thing I wanted to do for the rest of my life. You have to take chances in life, if you don’t take chances in life you’ll never have the life God has for you.
Soul is my understanding of music. Soul is also my swagger, how I handle pressure, and how I handle haters – it all comes from soul music.
Hate is louder than love, but love is stronger than hate. If you focus on those who love you, you can blow over the haters. Most people hate you only because of the way other people love you.
You can’t get where God is trying to take you because you trying to take everybody else with you.
My Daddy told me “everybody that come with you, can’t go with you.” If you are hanging out with people that’s holding you back, you need to shed the dead weight. You can’t keep dragging people around with you.
Everybody wants two things out of life… success and happiness. Both are available to anyone who wants it. You have to change your MINDSET. Want to know the difference between successful people and non-successful people? YOUR MINDSET! God gave y’all the same thing he gave me.
There are two scriptures that changed my entire life. If you do these two things, it will change your life. If you apply it right now, it can change your existence.
The scripture says “you have not, because you ask not.” Do you have any idea how major those words are for you? Most people don’t have the life of your dreams because you haven’t asked God for it. You’ve been trying to figure life out and handle it yourself. Well, how is that working out for you?
You have to have a vision board! I don’t know nobody wealthy, who don’t have a vision board. Scripture says “write the vision and make it plain. So he who reads it will run to it, and even though it will tarry, wait for it. For surely it will come at an appointed time.”
A lot of people are afraid to jump, a lot of people are afraid to take chances. A lot of people are afraid to put things up for risk, and you shouldn’t be. Now, you can be afraid but, you should learn how to go ahead anyhow.
For all the bad days you’ve ever had, for every day that you thought you weren’t going to get through. For every period in your life, you did not see any way you could have come out on the other side. Your track record for surviving is 100%. You have survived every single one of them.
Every dark moment you’ve ever had is preparing you for someplace God is about to take you. God has proven it to you your entire life. I’m going to show you something that he’s done for you, that you haven’t really paid a lot of attention to.
God gave you a wonderful gift at birth. Yes, we all have one, some have more than one. You must use your God-given gifts to reach your full potential. People ask me all the time, how did I do it?
I identified my gift, I worked, I wrote all of my visions down. I read them every morning and every night. I instilled them in my head, and every time I met somebody, I told them what I wanted to do and from there the connections started. I still dream big, because the God I serve is big. Talk to God about your gifts, your dreams, all the things to help you reach your full potential.
There’s no elevator to the top! You have to take the stairs in life. Sometimes in order to get the life of convenience, you have to deal with being uncomfortable.
If you’re like me, you’re constantly trying to improve yourself. I have news for you. God loves you right where you are. You’re in a process right now, a process of becoming what God wants you to be.
Ever wonder why God wakes you up every day? It’s because he isn’t done with you yet! He has something else for you that you haven’t received. You have to start living your life with expectations. Here’s the secret to all of this, you have to start expecting great things to happen. This is the law of attraction, this is real. If you change your attitude it will change your altitude.
You are in control of how you set the tone of your day. You get to decide every day if your thoughts are going to be negative or positive. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
It’s critical that you are aware of your thought patterns throughout the day. That’s a determining factor of your success.
