Everything I am I owe to the world and people around me. Motivation and inspiration are the necessary ingredients to build the person you want to be. Reading good books every day is a must; listening to awesome people share their story is a must; learning every day is a must. Today I want to share part of my personal life. From a young age I started listening to Zig Ziglar; I have a picture on my wall at the office with Zig and I shaking hands. It was a highlight of my young life. Later I immersed myself in Tony Robbins. The internet, especially YouTube, allowed me to listen to massive numbers of happy, successful, achievers on a regular basis. Today I will share some of those videos I start and end my day with.
This blog owes its existence to Pete, the blogger at Mr. Money Mustache. My writing has been prolific for decades, but this is a blog with a far more consistent and serious undertone than what I have written before. My novels and short stories tend to be very dark. I mean, so dark you want to get a rope when you are done reading the story. I am not my fiction writing which is why I rarely share who I am as a fiction writer. In my personal life I am very optimistic and positive.
