This book is inspired by the daily struggles people face throughout life. The lessons provided in this informational and inspirational piece will encourage good habits while disposing bad ones. They will also offer a systematic approach to eliminating or smoothing out the rough edges that appear to cause blockages and other distractions hindering one’s success. Part one, Trinity of Life, explains the three most influential factors shaping one’s life: faith, family, and friends. Faith, family, and friends correlate to the brain, heart, and spine. Faith is like a brain because it affects one’s thought process and decision making. Family is like a spine because it provides the backbone support one may need to fall back on. Friendship is a like a heart because it pumps blood through the many vessels in life that keep one feeling youthful, fascinating, and fabulous!
Part two, Challenge of Change, gives a roadmap to success, while including the necessary changes one should make in order to build the foundation for success. Success can encompass many aspects of life, not just money. Success is simply a confirmation of order. Where there is no order, there is no success. Once one has made the appropriate adjustments to his or her attitude, career objectives, finances, acquaintances, and lifestyle; then success has been achieved. Consequently, the next time one says, “I’m good”, he or she will actually mean it.
In short, I'm a work of ART (Ability, Responsibility, & Tranquility). My goal is to Attract, Retain, and Teach an audience between the ages of 14 to about 50 and beyond the disciplines of life. I've been blessed with the gift of giving knowledge and creating peace within the souls of many who are starving for spiritual satisfaction. I'm no prophet, but I do believe that I am one of God's chosen spiritual leaders and sources of information on how to walk a straight path down a crooked road.
Chapter 1: Faith - Either You Have It or You Don't
I could not help but touch on this topic because I see so many followers and so few leaders. People are being influenced by the wrong behaviors. I say behaviors because people have good and bad traits. Nevertheless, they are judged by the behavior they exhibit the most. Many times, celebrities portray their alter egos on stage or in the spotlight. Unfortunately, that is who many of us come to know them as. On the one hand, I believe people should look inside themselves to find out who they are before looking into the life of a celebrity. It's a personal responsibility. On the other hand, celebrities should be mindful of the people they influence and consider displaying more positive traits. It's a social responsibility.
Influence alone can go a long way. Look at how many Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne wannabees we have today. People aspire to be like somebody they believe have a gift or some unmatched value to add to society. For example, if major artists like Lil Wayne would pull their pants up, so would many young males in society. If popular female artists made it look cool to dress more modest, possibly would many young females in society. Sex sells at the expense of women degradation, but Sarah Baartman’s story was far worse than that. She wasn’t trying to be sexy, yet she was sold and exhibited for the amusement of others because of her large buttocks. People paid to see her, but she received little or none of the profits. If you haven’t heard of Sarah, Google her. There is nothing funny or entertaining about her story.
