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!!

Limits? What limits?!

Dear Leader:
In order to reach new heights you have to push your limits. Your mind sets these limits based on several factors like fear, past experiences, or even someone else’s results. These limits set up in your mind don’t really exist in reality. They’re only distractions from the greatness that’s on the other side. Knowing that our potential is unlimited, limitations don’t stand a chance against us. Challenge yourself to do what may at first seem impossible. Even if you don’t achieve your goal on the first try or second try or even twentieth try, if you truly believe you can do it, you soon will. Stay focused and Dream Big!!!

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!!!

Rise and Shine!!!

Rise and Rhyme to the Leaders!!! Be more motivated than ever today. When you focus on your goals and dreams, it’s like you become a magnet to attracting them. I’ll be the first to say I’ve had my fair share of adversity these past 2 years, but I’ve been dedicated to reaching my dreams so I never stopped grinding. I’m a witness to how your life can turn around when you believe in yourself and work hard. Despite the obstacles in life, remain positive and focus on your dreams. 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!!

Potential is Powerful

Ruff on Track Hello to the leaders. Lately I’ve been focusing on enhancing the gifts God has blessed me with. I’ve become aware of the potential I have in pursuing my dreams and I couldn’t help but to share this new journey with my fellow leaders.

First let’s understand what potential really is… Potential is dormant ability, reserved power, untapped strength, unused success, hidden talents, or capped capability. Potential is everything you can be but have not yet become. Potential is unlimited power. Yes, unlimited. It is our purpose to reach our potential or at least give 100% effort towards reaching it. If we want to maximize the power of our abilities and gifts, we have to focus on reaching our potential. We have to learn to live for the moment giving every second of our life 100% effort.

Once you become aware that you are capable of doing anything you set your mind to, you will hold the key to unlock the true value of what’s inside of you. You can be as great as you allow yourself to be. You set the limit. As for me, I have no limitations. Dream Big, leaders!!!

100 Miles and Rhyming Playlist

Here’s a playlist of all the songs I’ve posted to Soundcloud so far for the Summer. I’ll be adding more to it every Friday until the end of the Summer. At the end of the Summer I’ll put all of the songs on a cd. I may do this for every season since I record so much. Hopefully something in my music inspires you to chase your dreams. No limitations.
