It’s been a minute since I’ve shared my life on my blog. What brings me back here as always is that social media isn’t a place you own. More so now in 2020 where major sites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. have been filtering out your posts with “Fact Checkers.” So much for freedom of speech right? I did a recent post that says “He who owns the data, can bypass the law??”.
New years 2020 was like any other New Years for many until you actually entered into it. For all, we have had many challenges. For some it’s financial reasons. For others it may be separation of family and friends not being able to come together. For many others, there are mental challenges of feeling alone and leading into depression. In my opinion, and this is only my opinion, it’s better to live your life doing what you love without limits, than living under a rock arriving at your grave safely.
Point example, I lost two sales mentors to a plane crash. They were out hustling and doing their thing living their lives doing what they love. If you do what you love it doesn’t become a shore / work. I’ve been in different sides of the candle and like one would say its hard to burn both sides of the candle to be able to work in your favor. It’s quite surreal to say the least..
As an entrepreneur and Computer Engineer, I’ve been blessed with some amazing mentors and business and also some amazing co-workers in a Corporate setting. As always, the mindset of a sales person has to be in high energy because drama / negative energy can take them down to not have a productive day. You’ve heard it said before, “you are the five people you surround yourself with.”
A lot has change in my entrepreneurship journey. In the last 5 years I have publicly stated my love for Jesus through his Catholic church he started with Peter (Matthew 16:18). My life has changed in a more positive way ever since I’ve been allowing Jesus to Uber me around. I’m the dude in the back of the car asking my Heavenly Father for requests and He delivers! I use to be the guy that didn’t want to offend anyone by keeping Religion and Politics in the closet, but frankly it doesn’t serve the lost souls that are looking for something greater than themselves.
You see, when I started to not make my life about me or my family but rather include everyone in the human race and how I can support them to improve their lives financially, that was cool. It was paying me spiritually back because I was helping families. At the same time, I knew there was a greater purpose why I was put on this earth. It wasn’t to look for handouts but rather to provide hand-ups to those in need. If you spend enough time improving on yourself, you’ll realize that very few people around you bother you anymore. You’ve outgrown that drama. Life is good. Really good.
Don’t stop the faith and keep growing.
