Thought for the day

Reblog. You know it’s funny I remember my dad training in basketball. He was teaching me everything that he knew. I myself would struggle to apply what he taught me when I would play against certain people. One-day he pulled me to the side and said what’s wrong with you. Of course I lied and said nothing, I’m cool. He looked at me and said it must be something. Because sometimes you do what you were taught and other moments you do the opposite. Are you afraid. I said naw I’m not scared. He said yeah you are. You’re afraid to succeed aren’t you? That blew my mind because I heard afraid to fail but never afraid to succeed. He let me know that I had the knowledge and understanding that is needed to go out and get the job done. I had all my tools right there handy all I have to do is use them and I will be fine. He explained when you go out there into the world over second guessing what you can and can’t do you are holding onto doubt. You are allowing your fear to dictate your level of success. How far you can and will go. Instead allow your training and everything that you have been preparing for to shine through in that moment and you will be fine.

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
