Freedom is your choice, no matter what happens; YOU choose.

Most people I meet blame their circumstances on the world around them as if they have no influence on their circumstances.

This is crap.

Yes, there are some things out of your control, some things that might suppress you. Those are exceptions. They are horrible for sure, issues of justice are in the spotlight these days. Important for sure, but at the end of the day, they are again exceptions. We all have the same shot, we all have the 24 hours each day. We all, I mean all, have access to the limitless information on the internet, and we all have a voice on that same internet.

The decisions we have made and the ones we have yet to make are and will be a direct reflection of our lives.

I believe success is built from a blend of determination, skill, luck, persistence, effort, intelligence, timing, and momentum.

Only luck and intelligence are out of your control.

The rest are a direct result of the decisions you make. A direct result of your efforts.

Please don’t spend your time and effort complaining about how the “world got you down.” Get off your ass, don’t give up, try again, and follow your passion.

Time is short, we have not guarantees in life, you get the same 24 hours as everyone else.

Love taking trips like this with my tribe to #yosemite and still running my businesses in this makeshift office.
