Bow Tie Monday started at Jordan High School in Columbus, GA when Darius Moore asked Derrick Hayes to participate and where a Bow Tie each Monday.

 

The last thought on Derrick Hayes mind was to wear a tie to work but he also did not want to say no to someone else dream. After wearing a bow tie for a few weeks there was a day when the weather would not permit anyone to go out and get another bow tie so Hayes had to learn how to turn the regular ties that he already had into bow ties so that he could continue to participate in Bow Tie Monday.

Since Derrick Hayes did not kill his dream it ended up living his. Derrick Hayes went from not wanting to wear a tie to sharing and teaching others how to tie regular ties and also how to turn them into bow ties and the impact and feedback from men, women and children was incredible.

Now Derrick Hayes has branded himself as the “enTIEtainer” since he has added new tie tying techniques to his seminars, workshops, routines and Stand Up Encouragement sessions. The “enTIEtainer” is available to perform and uplift audiences at schools, colleges, corporations, meetings, events, concerts, festivals, clubs, casinos, churches, carnivals and other venues.

4 Principles That Birth Possibilities

January 30, 2018
Have you ever heard someone say “what’s done in the dark will come into the light?” God tapped me on the shoulder the other day and wanted me to share with others some of the things that I have doing in the community and behind the scenes on a regular basis.
I’m no better than you and I’m just here to share with you how I keep turning my lessons into blessings with 4 Principles That Birth Possibilities. The 4 Principles are nothing that you can do for yourself but you must do them for others and directly or indirectly you will see others start doing them for you.
Principle #1 – Open a Door. When I am about to go into a building I look to see if anyone is in my view and if they are I open the door for them. The lesson with this blessing is that the more and more I open doors for people the more and more doors will be opened for me.
Principle #2 – Say Thank You. After a door is opened for you simply say “Thank you.” The lesson with this blessing is that when people feel appreciated your life will be elevated. When you are on the go out in the streets keep this simple strategy in mind and it can keep your blessings on repeat.
Principle #3 – Wish Others Well. When I wake up each morning I understand that as a person of color that I have to work twice as hard and be three times as good and at the end of the day we can still turn on the news and hear and see more negative stories than positive ones. God challenged me to look into the eyes of men that look just like me and simply say “I wish you well.” I love all people of all races, religions and creeds but the trials and tribulations of Black Men is overdue and they may never hear “wish you well” on the evening news. The blessing in this lesson is that the men I meet and greet all say thank you for wishing me well and for opening up a door to brotherhood.
Principle #4 – Buy items for strangers – The next time you are in line at a store and you have some extra change in your pocket, purse or wallet look at the customer in front of you and the one in the back of you to see if you can afford to buy your goods and all of theirs. I laughed when God first challenged me to at least try it once and when I did it I started to get blessings directly and indirectly. When you can try and do it at least one time and do it for others that do not know you and for others that could not pay you back even if they wanted to too. The blessing in the lesson is that somethings you can do for free but to break down walls and get breakthroughs somethings will cost a fee.
Try one of the 4 Principles That Birth Possibilities and let me know how your life begins to grow, change or even transform.

The 11 Things I learned From DABO SWINNEY

December 17, 2017

As the guest speaker at the 10th Annual Sports Visions Awards Luncheon Clemson University Head Football Coach Dabo Swinney did not disappoint.

Coach Swinney gave back more to the audience than they could possibly take in. During Mr. Dabo’s presentation he inspired and motivated other players and coaches with what he called his fundamentals for success through stories, quotes, scriptures and words of encouragement.

The St. Luke Church was buzzing with excitement and if you were not there I’m here to take you there by summarizing what happened and how this message changed our lives so through his name I present to you the “11Things I Learned From DABO SWINNEY.”

(D) is for Dream. Don’t be afraid to dream big but set goals with a vision for your success.

(A) is for Active. Be involved and stay involved in school and community programs.

(B) is for Build. Surround yourself with good and tough people so you can build and have positive relationships.

(O) is for Over. Don’t buy into being an over achiever but speak belief into your life and say “I’m not an overachiever I’m an over believer.”

(S) is for Spiritual. In order to have success on and off the field you have to have a spiritual foundation in your life.

(W) is for What. People say someday I will do this and someday I will do that. What you do today determines when your someday will be.

(I) is for Individual. People that are successful know that separation comes from preparation.

(N) is for Now. Don’t take anything for granted so start to bloom where you are planted.

(N) is for Never. Never Ever let people walk through your mind with dirty feet.

(E) is for Education. Getting your diploma and degree is a game changer and it can take you out of the long line and place you in the short line.

(Y) is for You. You can be successful and make a difference. You can work hard and out work others.

When you hear Dabo Swinney conduct interviews or talk to his team in the locker room it will not help you understand how great he is and why he is one of the top coaches in the world until you hear him speak and share his story and still give God glory. I hope this message inspired you like the 11 Things I Learned From DABOR SWINNEY inspired me.
