Inspirational Quote

I hear some older folks tell me to enjoy my youth and never take it for granted. Do what I am supposed to be doing in my youth so when I get older I can live a life full of no regrets. Let me start by saying I hear you. I hear you loud and clear. Also thank you for thinking enough of me that you bless me with words of wisdom.

Most of the older ones who share this information with me I can tell that they are not to pleased with themselves. They aren’t happy with the outcome of their life. Whether they did this too themselves or had help. Let me say that it’s not over. You can be 100 years of age and I’ll still tell you that it ain’t over. Your age ain’t nothing but a number. Your mind that’s what really matters. You can live a free and happy life as well. You just have to make your mind up to do so. You can’t focus on the pass. Let go of what happened behind you and move forward and grab hold on to what’s in front of you. We all are young and we all have a finite time on this earth. But one thing is for sure we are never too old enough where we can’t begin. You just have to have a made up mind.

One more thing. If your of age please stop looking at the young torturing yourself. Stop saying man if I knew then what I know now I would be in a better place. Stop seeing the young as everything that you hoped to be but you’re not. Life is about moving forward.

Paul says it best

1 Corinthians 13:11 King James Version (KJV)

11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

You’re of age now. You’re seasoned. Hopefully you have learned a valuable lesson through all of the mistakes that you have made. Now you’re a grown adult. The choice is yours. There is no one in the way of you but you. If you believe that you should be in a better best then go for it. It’s yours.


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.
