You Gotta Have Faith

Webster has about 5 different definitions of faith, but the one tht sticks out to me most is this one: Firm belief, even in the absence of proof.

If you really think about it, we are all born with a nautrual inclination of faith. That is why we believe what our parents tell us, believe in such figures such as the Easter bunny, Santa Clause, or the monster under your bed that you knew was there but had know way of proving it. But, as we grow older and wiser, faith is a trait that is hard to understand or have. We need proof before we believe something. Continue reading “You Gotta Have Faith”

Success Stories Edition #1

I truly believe that the more that you hear about, read about, or see someone doing something that you want to do or are thinking about doing, it will motivate you to do it. This can be both a positive thing or a negative thing. So, with that being said, I want to make sure I put as much positive influence in front of you as I can. I would like to introduce a new series of post that I am going to call “Success Stories.” These are going to be interview with people who have made it out of that valley of death and lived to tell there stories. They will be business owners, athletes, community leaders, ect.

It’s the JOURNEY that matters

Life has a funny way of working out.

One minute you are a successful college football player with NFL dreams. The next minute you are sitting in the doctors office being told that you will never play the game you love, the game that has become who you are, your identity, ever again. The next minute, you are trying to replace the huge hole in your heart that was created when that game was ripped out of you with drugs, alcohol, and sex. Stealing from family, friends, and even strangers to feed an addiction. Sleeping on couch to couch because any money you get is going to a drug dealer. Not being able to have a steady relation because all you are looking for is your next slam piece. Eventually you get to a point where the stuff you were using to fill that hole in your heart makes the hole bigger. And deeper. You come to a point where there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. That, Ladies and Gentlemen, is what we like to call “Rock Bottom.” Continue reading “It’s the JOURNEY that matters”
