Faith Is Everything

Dear Leader,

If you’ve been following me for a while you know how big I am on the power of faith. Faith can push us to do things most would consider impossible or very difficult. Faith creates confidence.

Below is a snippet of Hebrews Chapter 11 Verses 1-3 on faith:

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”

Faith is based on your belief.

All we really got is faith, think about it…. you only turn the light switch on because you BELIEVE the lights will come on. You continue to put one foot in front of the other because you BELIEVE it will move you in the right direction. You only start a new business because you BELIEVE it will be successful.

So here I tell you, Dream Big and have faith in your biggest dreams to make them possible.

Your Fellow Lifestyle Leader,

Be Willing To Give Out Before Giving Up

Be willing to give out before you give up!! Let’s think in terms of lifting weights… your muscles grow and get stronger from the resistance of not being to lift the weight as freely. The more reps you do, the weaker your Kielce may feel in the moment but when you push that resistance to absolute muscle failure you actually become stronger. Your muscle grows. You too can grow your entire life through this similar effort. #DreamBigLifestyle

Progression: The Update

This entry is just a brief update on what’s been happening as of recently on my journey to Destiny. I’m realizing that it takes a lot to be successful, a lot of determination, a lot of patience, and a lot of sleepless nights to say the least. My passion has been driving me through this journey that includes roadblocks, mental distractions, and real life obstacles. My journey has also been filled with countless amazing studio sessions, new friends, enlightening moments, and blessings on blessings on blessings!!!

NoDa Yoga 2

Over the past 3 years I feel like I’ve been preparing myself, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Along the way I’ve learned so much about life and the industries that I will be diving head first into. I get more and more excited each day about the projects I am working on and the relationships that I have been building with new people.

After not releasing music for over a year, I’ve finally began releasing music that I’ve been holding on to for what seems like forever. Hopefully you’ve had a chance to listen to and download the two new songs that I’ve released (Throwback & Chef Curry). Throwback is a cover song from about 2 or 3 years ago to Usher’s song by the same name.

CHEF CURRY COVER ART2

Chef Curry is a dope track produced by my brother Ruby Rocx. The night we made that song was a great night. It was actually the last of 3 songs from that session. After completing the first 2 songs Ruby Rocx looked over at me and said, “bro I’m feeling like doing one more before we call it a night bro.” It was a weekday and we were both kinda tired, but feeding off of each other’s energy. In my mind there was no question and no hesitation. Not even 3 full seconds later I responded, “Let’s get it bro.” It felt like he made that beat in less than 20 minutes. Instead of recording the vocals for it after he was done, I transferred the beat to my laptop and headed home.

By the time I got home an hour or so later I was wide awake and full of inspiration. I began working on some other company things for a little while then up to my room to record the vocals for Chef Curry. By the time I finished recording, the sun had come up and social media was flooded with Thanksgiving posts. After emailing the completed song back to Ruby Rocx, He insisted that I release the song the same day.

These two songs are just the first of what’s to come and I can’t wait to share more, especially my first debut single that I won’t say the name to just yet, but will be released very soon. I’m watching a Bob Marley documentary at the moment, but I’m thinking about getting a quick nap in before the sun comes up since it’s already 4:33am now. More updates coming soon, Dream Big!!!

Impossible Is A Lie.

Impossible Is A LieDear Leader,

Let’s start today off with some truth. Impossible is a lie. Someone BELIEVED a piece of metal weighing 75 tons could fly through the air carrying hundreds of people. Someone also BELIEVED a tiny audio device could wirelessly connect to a 2.5 x 4 inch digital mobile device and play your favorite music. What someone may have thought was impossible 1000 years ago is past possible today.

You are very much capable of doing the exact same things that one of your peers thinks is impossible, but do YOU BELIEVE it is possible is what truly matters. There are no limitations in this life we live except the limitations we believe in. Be great, young Leader, and Dream Big!!

No True Limitations

Nothing Worth Having Comes EasyDear Leader,

Your physical body’s capabilities IS NOT your full potential. Your environment IS NOT your full potential. And neither one of these factors can determine what your full potential is. All of us aren’t able to slam dunk a basketball in a 10 foot goal or run faster than a cheetah, but these limitations on our physical bodies DO NOT limit our potential. You are capable of great things.

Challenge your mind to see past your perceived handicaps and continue striving towards reaching your full potential. No dream is too big. In your mind be a giant!! No obstacle is too difficult for you. After all, what’s worth having doesn’t come easy. Dream Big, Leader. No limitations.

Your fellow Lifestyle Leader,

Ruff

Personal Initiative

Ruff - Personal Initiative

Hello Leaders,

Today is a great day to analyze ourselves to make sure we are equipped for the success we dream of. To me the first step in chasing a dream is personal initiative. In order to progress there has to be a beginning action, “the first step”. This may sound simple and in some cases this may very well be a simple step, but let’s say this step isn’t an obvious one. Where do we start?

This question has many answers and the only wrong answer would be no answer (not starting anywhere at all). It doesn’t matter where you choose to begin in your journey to success. What does matter is that you do in fact start. Start anywhere. Start with brainstorming new ideas, create a plan, or just jump right in making an impact in your chosen field. Once that first step is taken, our dreams and determination to reach those dreams will align those next steps we need to take.

The possibilites are endless to where we can go, we just have to trust ourselves and take the first step. Whatever our mind can conceive and believe, our mind can achieve. Kudos to Napoleon Hill for that one. Believe in yourself and Dream Big!!!

Overcome Adversity

Ruff - Overcome AdversityWhen you’re in pursuit of your dreams and it seems that you are at the top of your game, life always throws that curveball. Be in the mindset of whatever can go wrong will go wrong, but the key is to be ready and brace yourself for it.

When I put on my Dream Big t-shirt this morning, I looked in the mirror and felt unstoppable. Although things haven’t gone exactly how I’ve planned or imagined them to go, I still walk in confidence and I still have faith. Sometimes you just have to take a timeout, take another look at the bigger picture, realize how far you’ve come, and why there is no turning back even though the journey is tough. Prepare yourself to fight through it.

In the midst of adversity you will find yourself. You will figure out who you are and what you’re really made of. No matter how high the odds are stacked against you, you have to keep moving forward. When you keep believing in your dreams and work hard to achieve them, you will realize that those mountains that used to be in your way look more like speed bumps now. Understand there will be unexpected circumstances and things will go wrong, but overcoming adversity is a key to living the Dream Big Lifestyle. Don’t give up and don’t limit yourself.

Happy Dream Big Friday,

– Ruff
