The Phoenix Company

3/22/2020
The greatest killer of your destiny isn’t fear, its doubt. This is because the potential and talents you are born with, can easily carve out the paths before you; but if you doubt what is within yourself, you can suffocate your future before it even comes to pass.

It must be tested and stretched to gain a better focus for upcoming endeavors but the purpose must be given from an outside source. Our...

Mr. & Mrs. Olympia

2/23/2020
There exists a world in which we reap only what we sow. We sow 12 years of schooling to reap a High School Degree. We sow 4 to 6 years in college to reap a Bachelors's or Masters. We sow our time in exchange for information and skills that will benefit and generate income for us and our families. We sow training in any area of our lives to one day reap the reward we desire. We spend a lifetime of training our mind and our physical bodies but forget to often train our 3rd person, our spirit....

The Secret Of One
