POSITIVITY

I BELIEVE A POSITIVE MINDSET WILL SET YOU FREE. NEGATIVITY IS A TRAP – IT STUNTS GROWTH AND SUCCESS. AND WE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO GROW AND SUCCEED. LOOKING FOR THE POSITIVE ISN’T ALWAYS EASY. BUT BEING THANKFUL FOR THINGS, EVEN THE LITTLE STUFF, IS A GREAT PLACE TO START. POSITIVE ATTITUDES ARE LIKE A MAGNET AND ATTRACT GOOD THINGS. WITH THE MENTAL STRENGTH OF POSITIVITY, I KNOW ANYONE CAN TACKLE LIFE’S TOUGH CHALLENGES AND GROW FROM THEIR EXPERIENCES.

SELF AWARENESS

IT TOOK ME A WHILE, BUT I FINALLY MADE IT: I AM COMFORTABLE IN MY OWN SKIN. I KNOW WHO I AM AND I’M HAPPY WITH IT. REALIZING WHO YOU ARE CAN HELP YOU REALIZE WHO YOU WANT TO BE, WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, AND HOW YOU CAN GET THERE. AND GAINING CONFIDENCE TAKES TIME AND EFFORT. FOR ME, LIFE ISN’T ABOUT BEING BETTER THAN ANYONE – IT’S ABOUT BEING THE BEST VERSION OF MYSELF. YOU HAVE TO KNOW AND CARE FOR YOURSELF BEFORE YOU CAN CARE FOR OTHERS. BEING SELF-AWARE IS INVALUABLE.

EMPOWERMENT

RAISED ON KC’S EASTSIDE, I NEVER KNEW WHAT OPPORTUNITY WAS. IT TOOK BEING PARALYZED FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND THAT OPPORTUNITIES COME TO THOSE WHO CREATE THEM. I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE CHALLENGED AND INSPIRED ME. NOW I’M MOTIVATED TO EMPOWER OTHERS TO BE MORE CONFIDENT IN THEMSELVES AND REALIZE THEIR POTENTIAL. IT’S IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO PURSUE THEIR PASSION AND GOALS, AND I ESPECIALLY WANT TO FILL THAT VOID IN MY BOYHOOD COMMUNITY.

This is the most positive and inspirational person I’ve ever met. He doesn’t know how to be any other way.
