Commit to your life. Don’t be weak!

Do you know what a commitment is?

It’s whether on a good day or a bad day you’re going to put your best foot forward.

Winning is a choice!

I don’t know why, but people really believe that they’re the only one’s with problems, as of life is purposely picking on them.

News flash, you’re not that special. Two words: TOUGHEN UP, man! Okay, that was three.


The delusion is real. All the complaining, chuck it! If you think you’re going to somehow escape disappointment, shame, or circumstance etc, oh baby you got another thing coming.

Life will happen. The people you love may betray you, the best marriages and relationships may be tough to manage sometimes, and/or people will discriminate against you and hate you for no reason. Life will happen. I’m not excusing those things, but IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN!

It has happened for years and it will continue to. What you focus on grows. So, cut it out!

My question for you is, will you be the success you see despite all of that? 

That’s what we do everyday. We get up and rise whether rain or shine.

Toughen up buttercup! Don’t be a sucker…

I remember, at my elementary school every morning they would play ‘You Gotta Be’, by Des’ree. Today, it’s still one of my favorite songs that remind me I am deserving of the life I envision, if I’m willing to work hard at it.

“You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day.”

  1. Omgosh! I used to listen to that song every single day of my 16-week long internship back in 1995. I was mad because my car stopped working and my grandmother wouldn’t help me get another one. So I had to catch the bus at 5a to get to my internship by 7a, every single day. That’s what helped me get through. And I agree…everyone thinks they’re the only one going through something. Thanks for this post.
