Let's Share Lessons on The Journey

I found that every single successful person I’ve ever spoken to had a turning point and the turning point was where they made a clear, specific, unequivocal decision that they were not going to live like this anymore. Some people make that decision at 15 and some people make it at 50 and most never make it at all.”

You must constantly ask yourself these questions: Who am I around? What are they doing to me? What have they got me reading? What have they got me saying? Where do they have me going? What do they have me thinking? And most important, what do they have me becoming? Then ask yourself the big question: Is that okay? Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.Jim Rohn

As 2016 comes to a close I have been making some firm decisions, like really really firm ones, about what I want and what I will be leaving behind.


I'm on it! On it like I want it

Finances - big big one - Never ever again I want to be here in this position where its like scraping the bottom of the barrel - been there before not fun, nope, better choices in 2017

Give to get don't be a selfish bumhead and give thanks for everything.

Boundaries - set some, end of story.

Health and Wellness - pretty happy about my discipline and commitment - I managed to add fruit to my daily life wherever I was in the world and it made a huge difference. 

Friends -  Surrounding myself with people who are sincere and kind, and cherish the ones who already are. I love my tribe I must tell them more often

Relationships - no need to run behind anyone not at anytime is that ever happening ever again.  Notice the signs and act on them. Decision made

That's it for now
