Without a doubt, the keys to my success have been my dedication to ongoing professional development and my natural ability to assess any situation quickly and efficiently. I am always looking for ways to improve myself and help make this world a better place.
I have spent the last 2 years helping people beat their anxiety and/or depression. My focus now is to help as many people as I can get a breakthrough in their life. Too many people are merely existing. I help them live!
What is your personal definition of success?
My definition of success is when you live a fulfilling life, a life that YOU are proud of. This is different for everyone. It’s a personal thing.
Can you share the steps you take daily to improve?
Every day, at least once, I meditate, say affirmations, and review my goals. This helps me stay focused.
I also try to read at least one chapter of a book.
Lastly, I am real with myself. I don’t lie to myself. If I’m slacking in an area, I call myself out.
What is your advice for someone making an important decision?
Layout all the FACTS. I say facts because our brains will play tricks and tell us lies. Therefore, it’s important that you write down everything pertaining to the decision. Using the George Washington close works amazing.
Tell me about a specific moment that set you on the path you’re on now?
Having people approach me and tell me about the impact that I’ve made in their life has helped me tremendously.
One person was going to commit suicide after losing his wife. He began following me on social media and it changed his life. When he walked up to me and shared that, it opened my eyes to my impact.
If you could recommend one book for our audience, what would it be?
Think and Grow Rich or the Alchemist. It will show you what’s possible. It also gives you step-by-step guidance on accomplishing whatever you want.
Which character traits do you value most?
I value honesty the most because things will never change until you are honest with yourself and others.
How do you push through tough times?
Forget it drive on. I learned that in the Marines. I put things in perspective and look at the positive.
What inspires you?
Seeing people live to their fullest potential.
How do you manage and prioritize opportunities?
I used to say yes to everything. That doesn’t work. Now, I compare everything to the goals that I have. If it helps me achieve my goals faster, I’m in. If not, I’m out.
What advice would you give to your 18-year-old self?
S$&@ happens!! You are going to make mistakes. It’s all part of the process. Learn quickly and move on.
