Are You Battling With Your Opponent

Most of the times our greatest opponent is ourselves that’s holding us back. Alot of the times we look a think that someone else has it out for us. Sometimes we think that the person is in competition with us. Really they aren’t most if the times they realize that we have the potential, talents and gifts to go far but aren’t willing to put in the work to obtain what’s ours. So their mindset could possibly be that if we won’t go for it then they will. So don’t worry about the next man next to you that could be gunning for the same position as you, job, lifestyle, car, money, family, man/women. Concern yourself with you. Focus on putting in the work to get what’s yours. At the end of the day it does not matter what your opponent is trying to go for. If you put in that work and it is meant for you to have what is yours at that particular timing. It will be yours. There’s is nothing that a person can take from you that is yours. It won’t prosper and work the same way in their possession as it would in your hands.


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.
