“The Show”


Your life is a show

Your own show

Are you going to stop the show because of unfortunate situations?

Are you going to let those who speak evil of you get the best of you on your own show?

Are you going to listen to people who do not see things the way you do?

Are you going to let listen to ill advice?

Are you going to let people come to your own show and run it for you?

Are you going to let the words of others get the best of you and change your mood?

Are you going to cancel the show because a guest could not show up for one day?

Are you going to cancel the show because road keeps getting tougher?

Are you going to cancel the show because of naysayers and pundits?

Are you going to leave your own show without leaving a legacy?

Are you going to abandon your show because of poor decisions on your part?

Are you going to quit on your show?

Are you going to be impatient and lose all of your investment?

Are you going to stop the show because people do not appreciate what you do?

Are you going to stop the show because of what people say being your back?

Are you going to stop the show because people have left your bandwagon?

Are you going to stop the show because friends have turned into enemies?

Are you gong to stop the show because you are not feeling well for a day?

Are you gong to stop the show because you are slightly distracted?

ARE YOU?

Or are you going to be bold?

Are you going to be tough?

Are you going to block the white noise?

Are you going to let your show go on?

Are you going to work on your guests and yourself?

Well, its up to you.

Look at all the negativity and smile and laugh

Look at it all and smile because you have placed your bets on the table

And you have done enough and you know your worth and you deserve better

My life is a show. The stage is mine and spot lights are bright and on.

The spot light never dims because I shine beyond it.

My show is my show

I will not let ANYONE tell me otherwise

I will not let ANYONE stop me

I will not let ANYONE influence me

Not even friends or family

I will not let anyone slow the momentum of my show

Welcome to my life. Welcome to the JFC SHOW!

THE SHOW NEVER STOPS! THE SHOW GOES ON!

The SHOW IS ON and ladies and gentlemen, WE ARE LIVE!

“Don’t Get Too Comfortable…”


Yesterday was a great day! I woke up feeling I was going to have a great day and I did. The evening was fantastic. I just got back to my hotel and decided to share this advice with all of you out there.

I walked around Denver yesterday, shopping and checking out the city. I stopped by this barber shop and this lady decided to give me the fade. Let me say this, I do not trust ladies cutting my hair. I am not trying to be sexist or anything, but I have had a bad esperience before. For some reason, I trusted this lady and gave her the opportunity to cut my hair. She was definitely a talker! She was sweet and was asking me questions. She asked “what do you do?” “what school do you go to?” “are you single?” “why are you in Denver”. I told her that i work for Microsoft and I am here for a conference. She stopped cutting my hair, asked my age and quickly said “Do Not Get Too Comfortable. Chase after your dreams and  chase after your goals. You are young and you have already achieved what most will never achieve. It only means there is greater and better to come and I wouldn’t be surprised to see you on T.V.” To be frank, I was not flattered, but paid attention to her wise words. She then pointed a picture of her two sons who are about 10 and 8. She said the older one plays football and his dream is to go to Harvard. She has toally brainwashed her kids though. She adviced me about females, and she told me the same thing she has been telling her kids. She was a caring mom and a woman who a lot girls growing up should aspire to be like. She asked me what advice I could  give her so she can give to her son and I said, “Do Not Get Too Comfortable. Continue to do what you are doing as a mon and your son will make you proud one day”.

Getting too comfortable hinders growth and hinders success. Getting too comfortable will prevent you from climbing to the top of the mountain and if you are the top, it will stop you from touching the sky. Always get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. You are made to withstand challenges.
