D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?
My dream is that I’m living it and about to live it. I’m about to become an inventor with a stop watch coming out in 2013 and also I’m about to build one of the largest sports and entertainment facilities in the state of Georgia. I’m a model and actor and will be authoring two books with one coming out next year. I’m actually in the mist of living the dream and walking in the dream wide awake.
E is for Encourage. What encourages you?
Daily I get inspiration from life itself by living in the now and in the moment. Everything from life inspires me and God gives us nuggets each day to bring us closer to him and being closer to him with you doing his will. His thoughts and his way are higher than our ways and there is a saying that there are 3 ways that God answers your prayers. 1. Answer it right away 2. No and give you something better 3. Wait and give you the best. In the trials and tribulations of waiting patience is a virtue so if you just wait it out God will give you the best of what God can give you.
R is for Resources. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?
You want to be someone that is irreplaceable. Just like someone in sports LeBron James and Michael Jordan that you consider the best ever to play. The reason they are the best is because they make everyone else around them better. The greatest leader is the greatest servant and that is the difference in people that are successful in that they make touch lives and make everyone around them better. When you can make someone better they will want you around more. The best resource is you trying to be the best that you can. In order for your dreams to come true you have to make others dreams come true.
R is for Ready. When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?
You have to stay ready by planning and preparation is the key in all things. When you are ready for a thing God will make it appear so it’s not when you’re ready it’s when God is ready. The thing is you have to continue to keep you’re A game every day and stay on top of your game. Master your craft because you never know when that time will come when you have to seize the moment. It’s all about staying ready, being ready and being prepared and ready for that moment. Just like when you are about to talk to a millionaire someone who has the opportunity to change your whole life. They ask “how much debt do you have?” You need to be able to tell them exactly how much it is because they can give it to you right on the spot, but if you are not prepared and ready to answer it you just missed your moment, and you just missed your time of becoming debt free.
I is for Individual. Name at least one person that you know that you feel others should learn about and why?
King David and how he succeeded and was a man was after God’s own heart. Know the laws of success and study to be the best you can be.
C is for Continue. When you fail, things look bleak or are not optimistic what makes you want to continue?
Faith. You have to keep faith to please God. The greater the struggle, the greater the blessing. You either take big risk for big reward or small risk for small reward. It’s all about making the right choice and believing in you. If you don’t believe in you and think you can’t make it then you have already lost. Believe, stay strong and call out to the universe by speaking positive and staying positive. Faith without works is dead so work towards it and if you know the laws you have seed time and harvest time. Put it out there and do your work and you’ll have to answer to your call and have the chance to make it happen. The opportunity will come.
K is for Keys. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders?
1. Always be you and go with your hear where decisions are made 2. Be consistent 3. Be persistent 4. Things could be falling together or falling apart. God has placed everything within you to succeed. Be wise and hang with wise men. In you want to know where are or going look at the crowd.
Is there anything that we did not touch on that you would like to inspire others with?
Go for it. You want to die empty without anything left in you.
