I want to inspire people with my story and how my life changed, once my mindset changed. What am I about? It's simple...
My desire is to share my journey to help your journey.
What I was about? (That's an entirely different story!)
Life is a journey and we all know it’s not always a straight and easy one… Everyone has a story to tell played with different characters, ups and downs, and obstacles to overcome.
Me in a nutshell...
Age 2 parents divorced. Age 12 my mom got on drugs. Age 13 I started to move around a lot. Ages 13-18 I lived with 6 different families and went to 4 different High Schools. In High School I played and excelled in football, but had no family support. In college I quit football. I joined a gang. I sold dope. I did robberies.
I sold dope to my mother. I had a son at 21. I got married at 28 to my wife I met at church. My best friend was shot in the head 1 month after my marriage for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. I got on Meth and was addicted for several years. I was addicted to porn. I loved my wife and God but lusted women. Marriage was a struggle which consisted of lies, drugs and my brokenness.
My wife filed for divorce. I got sober. My wife and I reconciled. We endured 10 miscarriages. 11 years married I had my second son and 2 years later my daughter. Age 42 I found I struggled with my identity. Through my journey I found that in all the phases of my life I adapted. I did what made me feel good at the time to get through what made me feel bad. I am now focused on self-awareness and becoming a better me every day.
My desire and passion is to help others become self-aware by sharing my story and to inspire them to be NEXT2GET their Success.
Success is different for everyone, but everyone can be Next2Get Theirs
