Reblog: From ICD


This is motivational. The man had a heart condition and didn’t let it hold him back. Not once did he allow his situation to fracture his mental. He kept going. Makes you wonder what’s wrong with alot of us who don’t have mental issues or health conditions that’s holding us back. Why are we losing at every turn in life. What’s truly holding us back?

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.

  1. We just fail to appreciate everything we have, privileges, abilities, time. Practicing mindfulness could help with this. I am trying to reorganize my life because I realized that there was indeed a lot I was taking for granted and wasting.

    • Definitely keep working on yourself toward realizing all that you do have. I encourage you to keep going. I mean I can relate to you. I too had to take a step back to see everything that I had in my. I was more focus on what I wanted instead of what I have. So I had to reorganize my life as well and become more grounded and appreciative because life was not going great for me. I was not able to get to a certain places in my life. Dear I say my road became harder. But once again I encourage you to keep going and taking those steps toward bettering yourself. You’re on a great track and doing what very few of us do and choose to realize that we need to change. That’s awesome.
