God doesn't make junk. There's no such thing as a disposable human being.
You were designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and at your creation you're endowed with the seeds of greatness.
No one is entitled to success, you have to work for it.
I've overcome a lifetime of adversity. When I was a kid I was diagnosed with Tourettes Syndrome, ADD, Dyslexia, OCD, Mitral Valve Prolapse and was told I was tone deaf. I was told that I was mentally retarded, emotionally stunted, developmentally challenged, that I would never graduate from high school or go to college. Authority figures and adults labeled me as learning disabled and limited.
To deal with the stress of a difficult childhood, an alcoholic and abusive father, and being overweight I developed anorexia and bulimia for almost two years.
Everything I have ever been told I couldn't do, I have accomplished and more. This has taught me that your past does not determine your future and who you were does not determine who you will become. Only your choices and actions in this moment do.
This has also given me a passion for speaking to the world to give the above message. My story has now been broadcast to over a million people and my writing and speaking are continuing to impact new lives every day.
It is my passion to help to transform the lives of every person I come in contact with, whether that be through public speaking, blogging, or one on one.
