Mountain Of Success

Hey My Beautiful People!!!

Today is a good day! There’re things I have to be thankful for everyday, I know that, but today just feels like it’s gonna be a great one. Have you ever felt like that?

There’s plenty I have to do, but I’m not gonna let that overwhelm me. I’ll get to my desired place in life in do time. Patience is truly a virtue, because I’ve seemed to have run all out of mine. I now understand what so many others went through when first starting something that could potentially leave a legacy.

The seriousness that comes with starting something you eventually want everyone to experience at least once is a little heavy to think about in it’s entirety. I want to succeed so bad! I know it’s gonna be a fight to reach the type of status I’m striving to accomplish. Ready or not I’m coming. This work ethic is no joke and never will be. You only get out what you put in, and I intent to put everything I have into climbing that huge mountain of success.

The same goes for you. If you’re passionate about doing something you want the whole world to experience and also want to benefit off of it, there’s no shame in that. People only value things that carry a price. So if you put your time and energy in to something, never feel bad for charging a fee. I’ve learned from those have come up before me, that’s the only way others will learn to respect your craft.

Another thing, if you have a defeatist attitude, get rid of that A.S.A.P!!! You are never gonna get anywhere feeling sorry for yourself. Also what is it doing for you? I get you have to through yourself a pity party sometimes, but if you’re depressed more than you’re happy, some things need to change. Work on turning your life around so you can live the life God has for you. He never meant for you to be down and out for most of your days.

Inclosing, we only get a few days on this earth. Why spend the few good days you have miserable and unfulfilled? If life is hard for you right now look for that ‘Out’. You may not see it if you’re not looking hard enough.

My 6 Steps to Success

There are only 3 days left!!!

Where are my manners?

Good Morning, My Beautiful People!!

Hope all is well. As you see, I’m more than happy that school is going to be out in the next three days. To add to that I don’t have any children. So I can take this opportunity to focus on where I’m trying to be in life before that time comes.

Have you ever just wanted life to go a certain way? But every time you try to get it to go in what you think is the right direction, it surprises you and goes a different route. That has been the story of my life. There have been countless things that I’ve wanted to do in life.

Let me give you some examples of the things I’ve wanted to do recently. Start Shopify, Etsy, YouTube, Photography, Real Estate and the list goes on.

I’m sure the reason I haven’t been able to excel at these things is do to my inability to commit; I know it is. I believe my failure to commit is due to a fear of failure. As I’m sure a lot of us have.

But I promise myself this summer I’m gonna give it all I’ve got. I have this one golden opportunity to get something started and that is exactly what I’m gonna do. There are to many ways to enjoy life for me to not find one.

If you’re at this same point in life; where you feel things could be a whole lot better and you want a life of freedom. Take the leap and make it happen. You’ll be so happy you did.

I’m sure once I make it to the life I’ve always dreamed of things will start to become clear to me.

So, these are some of the things I’m gonna be doing to help propel my life in the right direction. You can try this if you’d like.

  • Start a routine
  • Workout 5x a week
  • Eat healthier
  • Give 5 to 10 hrs a day to the thing I want to do for the rest of my life
  • Never give up
  • Practice being a Influencer, not a Consumer

I’m sure these things seem small. But the small things start the big changes. These six things are going to be keys to my success. I’m sure there are many more things I’m going to have to do, but these are my starters.

As I stated before, I am going to be dabbling in a few things; Shopify, YouTube, Photography, Etsy, and maybe even fiverr. I’m not sure what I’m going to stick with. Bit I’m happy to say I’m starting.

Financial Freedom is something I’ve always strived for. So taking this on full time is going to be a dream come true. I know it won’t be easy, but I’m ready to work as hard as I need to in order to make it a reality.

Failure is a part of life



What I have learned a long the way is failure is something you can’t get away from. You try to do everything to the best of your ability and sometimes it’s still just not enough. What you have to realize is failure is many times a matter of opinion. People set up loops and hurdles for us to jump through. Sometimes we fall short of their expectations, but as long as you tried and gave it all you had, that’s all that really matters.

I don’t know where it came from, but I just got inspired to write about failing. Something I seem to do a lot  of. Don’t take that as me downing myself because I’m not. I’m just saying I, like a lot of other people have seen failure and have been affected by it. To be completely honest it affects me greatly because I feel that everything I ever do should be to the best of my ability, scratch that to the best of anyone’s ability. At times I know I can be hard on myself; I guess that’s just the Virgo in me. But seriously we try to hold ourselves to these standards that just aren’t realistic, most times. Like they say, ‘When you fall down get up and try again’. We are always encouraged to try because the story never should end with failing.

If you’re like me and you want to find your way to becoming your own boss; there are going to be many times when you’re going to fail. All you can do is dust yourself off and go back at it again.

What I had to learn and still learning is, my opinion of myself should rank higher than anyone else’s of me and if I fail it’s okay. The upside is I’m trying and that’s all that matters. Sure you may fail over and over again. But if you really believe in what you’re doing it won’t matter, because if you try long enough and don’t let failure intimidate or deter you, eventually that freedom and sense of accomplishment will be your reward for not giving up.

Know you were put here for a reason, and if things aren’t working out, doesn’t mean it’s going to always be that way. Sometimes we have to jump those hurdles to get to the life we want and know we deserve.

As always……

empowering · Rant · Thoughts · Venting


Image result for trying but not succeedingNot Making It- That is my biggest fear. I’m going through this life with so many things in my head I want to get out, but fear paralyzes me ever time. I have thoughts daily about the things I could do if given the chance. You know what else I have thoughts about? Not making it, and loosing everything, including the things I have now. I know it’s not a good thing to live in fear, but like I said before, it paralyzes me every time I think of the risks that come with making it, or at least trying too.




Image result for trying but not succeedingDespite my fears I’m going to keep pressing on until something comes from the hard work and daydreams I have daily of that life I want so desperately. That’s all anyone can do, is put their self out there and hope someone will give them the chance to become something better than what they are.

Learn from me; give yourself the chance to learn what you want to do with this life. Always live for yourself, because when it’s all said and done there is no one you can blame your unhappiness on but yourself. That’s why listening to what others tell you to do with your life doesn’t serve you, because no one but you knows what you’re capable of; and what will make YOU happy.


Live a happy, full, free life. Connect with many and love the one you're with.Have a Beautiful day!!!!.jpg
