All my life I have felt that I was put on this earth to do something great. Throughout my life I have encountered several hardships including being made fun of and bullied as a kid, the loss of several loved ones, as well as years of depression. Dealing with and overcoming those different scenarios taught me the importance of believing in and loving yourself, to surround yourself with positive people, and that time heals all wounds. When I think about it, my life reminds me a lot of the movie Slumdog Millionaire. It has consisted of several very unfortunate events and circumstances but in the end they have made me into a very loving and empathetic person who enjoys nothing more then helping people deal overcome the roadblocks in life and improve themselves, which is why I made the decision to pursuit a career in motivational speaking.
In January of 2010 I made one of the greatest decisions of my life and joined the United States Navy. I can honestly say that I would not be the man I am today if I had not joined the service. It has taught me the importance of working together as a team to accomplish a common goal, that true leadership is not about giving orders but guiding by example, and that true satisfaction comes in the service of others. When I say serving others I don't mean doing what other people tell you, I mean helping your fellow man and woman because it is the right thing to do.
In June of 2014 I was given two blessings. I was promoted to First Class Petty Officer and my son was brought into this world. Holding my son in my arms for the first time made me realize that it wasn't just about me anymore. I had to make sure that my son knew that there was nothing in this world that he could not do and that if he had a dream he should go for it.
On January first of 2015 I began a quest to find my purpose. The answer came in the form of a Youtube video. I was looking for inspiration and found it in a man known as Les Brown a world renowned motivational speaker. After listening to him speak, I felt like doors in my brain that had been shut my whole life had suddenly been opened. I remember thinking to myself, "that is what I was put on the earth to do". I was born with very few passions; writing, public speaking, and giving counsel. Luckily for me there is a profession the utilizes all of those skills, Motivational Speaking. Once I made the decision to pursuit that career path I knew that I needed to enhance every aspect of my life and if I wanted to be successful I needed stop thinking about it and start taking action.
Over the past several months I have created a system that has allowed me to take my dreams and turn them into reality. I am currently in the best shape of my life, my mind is sharper and more alert then ever, and I have an indescribable sense of inner peace. The inner peace that comes only when you are living your life by your own set of morals and principles and you are consistently pursuing self-improvement and the achievement of your goals and dreams. I did not attend a university and the information I talk about is not from a text book. They are the words of a man who was faced with everything that was meant to keep him down who instead decided to choose a more optimistic path which helped him enhance every aspect of his life. I've decided to spend the rest of my life helping people eliminate the negative facets of theirs lives and begin to live the lives of greatness that we are all capable of.
Make the decision today to join me on the path to becoming your "Ultimate Self"!!!!
