  • Your passion must be fed and developed. If you feed it and develop it, it will be able to feed you!
  • Don’t despise small beginnings. Be willing to grow the small things into big things!
  • Don’t fret big obstacles. Big doors most often swing on small hinges!
  • Start your day with Prayer and Praise; it gets you grounded.
  • Next, exercise and eat; it keeps you energized.
  • Then, read and reflect; it keeps you growing.
  • Next, dream and direct; it keeps you focused and moving toward your destiny!
  • Write down your goals! People who don’t write down their goals work for the people who do!
  • Get a mentor! Mentorship is the shortcut to greatness!
  • Be careful of who and what you hang around; your environment will change you more than you will change it!
