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.”
My name is Rex. Like many people today, I was at that point recently in my life. I reached a crossroads in my life that really made me evaluate where I was headed. One Summer night in 2012, I found myself home alone at my parents house having being just fired from my 3rd job in 6 months, lonely, depressed, and with a bag of heroin. I decided that this life wasn’t worth living anymore so, I loaded the whole bag in the syringe and put it in my arm. I sat down on the couch and took a look around. Where did it go wrong? I asked myself that many times before I fell into a deep sleep that I totally expected not to wake up from. But, I did. I Have no other answer for why I did other than by the grace of God. I woke up and just cried. I new I had to change.
And I did. I made a commitment that day that I could do it. I could change. I decided I wasn’t going to let myself become a statistic. I knew that I had the work ethic, drive, and motivation to be successful but, I also knew that I would never be successful if I was doing drugs. I made a choice that day that I wanted to be successful.
And now I am. It wasn’t easy to get through the battle with addiction but I did. I now am a successful entrepreneur, mentor to about 20 great young men, and feel compelled to help others climb out of rock bottom. I created this website for that exact reason. I want other to feel the success that I did when I realized drugs no longer had a stronghold on me. This website is going to be my avenue to share life lessons, tips, videos, books, interviews with successful people, motivational quotes, ect. with people who feel like I felt a few years ago. Am I an addiction expert? absolutely not. What about an expert on success? Again, no. But I am a man who has been to rock bottom and made it out alive and even flourished after making it out. If this website helps even one person, to me it is totally worth it. I want
I hope you take what I have to say both to the heart and with a grain of salt. Everyone is different and what worked for me may not work for you, unfortunately.
I look forward to helping you grow as well as grow with you.
