Personal or Professional Goals:
To casualize the spiritual experience and make it attainable for anyone, anywhere, anytime. Many of us disconnect from our spiritual nature because it feels too esoteric or scary. But, the reality is spirituality isn’t something that’s separate from us — it ‘s the essence of who we are. And once we realize this and embrace it we’re able to live happier and more fulfilled lives.
What’s Your Offering to the World?
I grew up in a poor household and battled depression and morbid unhappiness as a teenager and young adult — once attempting suicide. I used to ask God, “why does my life have to be so hard?” and “what did I do to deserve this?”
But now, I look back with total understanding. If I hadn’t gone through those hard times, how then would I have the same capacity to relate to others, empathize or help people going through their own challenges? My life has set me up to help other people connect with their true selves, and discover their own power within.
Who/What Inspires You?
People inspire me every day! Life is all about creation, and finding (and harnessing your truth). If you’re able to do this, you will be inspirational to everyone you meet.
On a broad spectrum, anyone who is able to overcome personal challenges, extract lessons with a grateful heart and live in alignment with their purpose I find incredibly inspirational. I’m constantly in awe of the depths of what many people go through and come out of.
On a personal level, I have a lot of beautiful souls around me who inspire me daily, but the two that come front and center are my son, Elijah, and my uncle Steve. Both my son and my uncle have shown me (and continue to) unwavering love, support and encouragement. They are my heart’s soulmates, and I am so grateful for both of them every day.
To get everyone I interact with in any capacity to ask themselves this question: “What’s meaningful to me and how can I bring more of that into my life?”
And then realize they have all the power they need within themselves to be happy, fulfilled and successful.
“The only limits we have are those we impose upon ourselves.” – Bob Proctor
I started CAJ about 9 months ago, and have grown the following by the tens of thousands in that time. It’s now to the point where I’m monetizing, and soon it will take the place of my full-time job.
I say this not to brag (okay maybe a little), but to let anyone reading this know impossible = I’m possible.
Anything you want good you can have.
Yes, you will have to work for it.
Yes, you will experience challenges.
Yes, there will be setbacks.
But, if you keep at it, it will manifest.
Look at your dreams like a seed you’re planting in the ground. If you plant your seed and water it once, will it grow to its full potential? Of course not.
If you plant your seed and water it inconsistently, will it become all it can be? No. If you plant your seed and understand it has to first grow roots (its foundation) which won’t be immediately evident, but you continue to water it and provide it with the right elements consistently it will GROW. It will BLOSSOM. And it will be everything you ever dream of.
Treat your dreams exactly as you’d treat a seed you’re planting. Nurture them. Water them. Have patience. And give them room to grow. They must first build a foundation before they can blossom to their fullest potential. Never give up. Harness your dreams. Harness your power. Don’t wait for tomorrow, or next week, or even 5 minutes from now. Start this minute. You won’t regret it and your future self will thank you.
