Turn Down For What?!?!?!?!

  

Dear Leader,

Turn up for your dreams. 

I’m sure the phrase “Turn Up” has become one of the most used phrases of our generation, but today let’s give new meaning to the popular saying. 

It’s time to get excited about the things you want to accomplish in life. Your dreams deserve the enthusiasm that you truly have for them. Express your passion for achieving your dreams through your efforts. If you’ve ever had a feeling like you could do more, go harder, reach higher, or strive further, it’s time to turn it up a notch. Your future self will thank you for this. Today, at this very moment, and every day after…. TURN UP FOR YOUR DREAMS!!!!

Be Definite. 

Dear Leader:
Having a definite or specific goal or dream in mind makes achieving it so much more direct and purpose driven. The journey of chasing dreams is also fun, but you have to have a destination in mind. Where are you going? Where do you want to be 5 years, 3 years, 1 year from now? What about 6 months from now? Or tomorrow? If you go there in your mind, you will go there in your body. I believe that.
To keep your mind goal driven, think about where you see yourself, the ultimate version of yourself. You will begin to think of more ways to improve your efforts in chasing your dream. I hope this helps you. Dream Big, no limitations.

Faith On Fleek

  

Dear Leader:

Today is a new day. A new day for fulfillment. A new day for new energy. And new day to achieve your greatness. No matter how great or terrible yesterday was for you, it’s in the past now so it no longer matters. Take a moment to visualize where you dream of being and becoming. With visualization being a key to success, if you can see it in your mind, you’re already bringing it to life. When you consistently think about and work toward your goals and dreams, they gravitate towards you… Closer and closer every day and every moment. 

It’s human nature to have self doubt, but you have to learn to overcome it and eventually completely eliminate it from your thoughts. Be confident in yourself and your abilities. God gave us unlimited potential so you definitely have what it takes to succeed. Faith goes a long way, just believe.

CHARGED UP!!!

  Dear Leader:

I was a little tired earlier this morning (12am) and I dozed off reading a book… About 15-20 minutes later I got myself together and continued reading. 1am came and went… 2am, 3am… Around 3:30 this morning I started making myself a to-do list for the day. Not really expecting to stay up this entire time, but I can honestly say being focused on achieving my dreams has me wide awake right now. 

I recently read something that said gratitude brings you more things to be grateful for, so I really have to give some acknowledgment for a moment… I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR POSITIVE ENERGY AND FRIENDS THAT ADD VALUE TO MY LIFE!!! 

I feel like the only person that can truly stop us from doing the things we dream of doing is ourselves. Once we believe in something, we have to trust the process and enjoy it at the same time. Of course it’s going to be an unknown journey because we haven’t done this yet, but this journey can be whatever we make it. Our entire life is whatever we make it. Like we have the power to choose to have an amazing day today (or the total opposite). Let’s make it phenomenal and award worthy. If you give today your 100% best, give yourself the MVP trophy at the end. Dream Big and go get it!!

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!!!

Weekend Recap – Virginia Beach, VA

Over the weekend I took a major step forward in my career. Being back in the studio in Virginia Beach was an amazing feeling and I enjoyed every single moment. It’s an honor to work with super talented people that are willing to share their knowledge with me and assist on developing my skills. As soon as I was informed that would be traveling back to VA, I thought about it every day until I was on my way.

We had a “hiccup” aka flat tire as soon as we got on the road, but after an hour wait on the side of the road we were brought a new rental car which was a major upgrade in the 2015 Lincoln MKZ. Since we made it in town late Friday night, I went straight to my room to check in and prepare myself for an exciting Saturday. When we made it to the studio the next day I was overly impressed with the facility. There were several rooms with studios and top notch equipment as well as a green room for video production. As we were getting a tour of the place I felt like a kid in a toy store. Honestly, words don’t do justice of the experience I had. It was in my opinion a perfect day. I didn’t leave the studio until around 5:30am just in time for the continental breakfast back at my hotel at 6am. What’s crazy is I would’ve stayed there awake and working on music as long as humanly possible.

I’ve waited on this moment for a very long time and I am excited and committed to taking advantage of the opportunity to work with some greats. This is truly a blessing and I appreciate everyone’s support in my journey to reaching my dreams. I am anxious to let the world here the music I’ve been creating. Soon!!

Click here to view some photos from the weekend, more will be added shortly. Stay connected with me through my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud, and Tumblr for more. Until next time Leaders, Dream Big!!
