When pursuing anything worth while, finding a reason to go hard that's deeper than the actual goal goes a long way. It's not motivation. It's drive. With that though, everybody needs a shoulder to lean on from time to time. Especially, when you're in an abusive relationship and don't feel strong at times.

My take on what "Loving People Well" means:

Caring and supporting people without knowing the ins and outs of every situation. Everyone has a background story. Not everyone is ready to share at all times. Regardless though, you provide the support that someone may need someday. Don't expect anything in return. Loving people well has no terms and conditions.

Being alive is a trip. Like truly a trip. Nobody asks to be here. We give birth to other people who don’t ask to be here. It’s intense if you think about it deep enough. I’m the type of person who finds drive through purpose. I had to rephrase the question that most people say to ask yourself when it comes to finding that source, because it wasn’t cuttin it for me. That “what’s your why?” question. ———————————————————————————WHY ARE YOU ALIVE?” is the better question. The journey of human beings has been an improbable one. If someone where to tell you a story of a family who’s been through what each of our ancestors have been through, you’d think there’s no way they’d have any lineage. But they do. You stand today as a testament to this crazy journey of the human experience. Ask yourself why your alive? It’s opened up a new sense of purpose for me.

Just my raw thoughts on it 🤷🏿‍♂️

The aftermath of me being the only one in a Mexican household goin for Triple G 😭😭😭 #canelo #ggg

Interview one in the BAG 😤

I ain’t scared to say that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the generosity and love of others. Had a mom who told me I can do anything I wanted, even though I wasn’t doing what I was supposed to. Had homies that put on for me through whatever, even though I wasn’t always the best friend to be around. Had coaches who took a chance on me, even when I didn’t give myself one. I’m finding out more than more that not giving up on people, and yourself is a common theme amongst people who navigate waters of the human condition successfully.

It was a pleasure to be able to interview such a dope father, husband, entrepreneur, author, and all around dope human being. Patience, humility, perspective, drive, and SUPPORT are crucial to the formula of success in anything we want to get done, and @terrythetrainer more than reps those traits.
Be on the lookout for clips from the podcast this upcoming week, and full video next weekend.

These past 15 years have BLOWN BY. Let me tell y’all how the birth of this kid was one of the most impactful moments of my life.

On Aug 8th 2003, my lil bro Lordan Warnell was born. He was premature, just like the rest of my moms kids, but there was something more going on with him that we were going to find out real soon. Shortly after his birth, our beautiful, full of life Lil man had a seizure. One of the most terrifying moments of my life. To see a baby blue in the face and not know if he was going to make it.... it was just wild, but my dawg made it through.

As months passed he was growing right on track. He was talking fine. He was eating fine. All the good stuff. But he wasn’t walking. He scooted around on his knees to get from place to place. We took him to the doctor, and it turns out he had cerebral palsy. This was DEVASTATING. I couldn’t fathom why this would happen to someone. A baby.... I would cry often about this for years. Even now it’s tough to talk about, but it did trigger something in me. Something that would change both of our lives forever.

Even at 9 or 10, I knew the world wouldn’t stop spinning because of this. Everybody has their own shit, and this was ours. More importantly, this was something that he was going to deal with forever. At that moment, I took it upon myself to make sure he could take care of himself. I knew it would be easy for him to let society handicap him. I get it. People see someone struggling to walk and they want to be nice. I don’t blame them and never will. But I made sure Lordan knew that the real handicap is of the mind, and he couldn’t let that happen.

Maybe I was too hard at times. Maybe having you pick up your own wheelchair or walker, and then put it in your car is tough. But you can do it on your own. It took a long ass time the first time I made you do it, and you were pissed. But YOU did it.

Whether it’s that, figuring out how to take out the trash with your walker, standing up without anyone helping you after surgery, and much more, you can do it.
I still don’t know why these were the cards you were dealt, but I do know you inspire me everyday lil bro. #NoExcuses I love you more than you know. HBD

Made it out the mud 😤💪🏿 #MudRun #NCCMudRun

This was my 3rd mud run event and I loved it! Ive never liked running, so when I do 5ks I get bored. But, having different obstacles adds the type of variety that makes it fun AF. The biggest part about me even doing it, was that I was getting too comfortable. Only doing things that I “liked”, but it’s more like doing thing that were easy. For the first time, I was able to make it through EVERY obstacle without going around. Idk when the last time you’ve done monkey bars was, but that shit is HARD 😂😂. Kids out here making it look like lunch, but sheeeeeeesh. Here’s to doing more increasingly challenging things. Here’s to getting out of my comfort zone. Here’s to failing at more shit, dusting myself off, and trying again.
