“Only God can turn, a mess into a message, a test into a testimony, a trial into a triumph, a victim into a victory.” - Unattributed

I will proudly profess my own personal Christian faith however it has always and will always be my intent to appreciate or respect anyone else’s belief, culture or religion.   



We have all received one ticket into this world.

Certainly, we were all born into a sundry of events and circumstances good, bad or indifferent.

Our formative years do not have to shape who we are today.

Yes, for some it was not easy.

There were a multitude of challenges along the way. All of these experiences helped to shape us in one way or another.

In spite of these experiences, we were endowed with free will and we can alter the events that have not occurred to date.

Unfortunately, some do not exercise this free will and if they do, they choose paths of lack, limitation, frustration, violence and everything else that undermines an individual’s personal growth.

Choose to use your wings that God gave all of us on the first day of creation and they will soar you to heights beyond your wildest dreams.

An example of this is the following quote by a young man.

"You might have little wings but they grow. You can make it and you can fly to victory.”

When he wrote this, he was nine years of age.

Yes, you might have little wings but they will grow if you allow yourself to be open to personal growth.

These wings will soar you to heights that you never imagined in this lifetime.

Let go and let God.

Allow yourself to embrace all that life has to offer.

Yes, there will always be challenges, obstacles and mountains to move.

So, what!

Turn these challenges, obstacles, and mountains into experiences that will transform into victory.

It has not always been a walk in the park but I will never trade any of my experiences throughout my life as these events helped shaped who I am today.

The buck stops here and it’s up to you.

Get rid of all the excuses.

Get rid of present circumstance thinking.

Get rid of all the toxic enablers and co-dependents, as you no longer need them in your life.

Rather, embrace that wonderful, creative, results oriented individual.


Remember, others will be looking at the fire while you are walking through the fire towards your victory and success.

Don't Play It Safe.

You are a warrior of success.

You have talents that have been under utilized.

Make it count your way every day and success will always be yours.


Turn this trial of unprecedented time into triumph.

Onward and Godward!

Carpe Momentum.
