Mind of a Man Mondays: Are You Making Time or Excuses?


Jeremiah 29:11 says For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Have you ever felt like you just knew the dots were connecting with your dreams?

It’s always cool how God humbles us with His timing when we always try to force ours. I’ve always had plans of meeting some of the top motivational speakers in the world. Recently I attended a business seminar in St. Louis and had the privilege to meet Mr. Willie Jolley.


I got to meet and chop it up with Willie Jolley rated the #1 Motivational/Inspirational speaker in the world. He dropped jewels I’ll use forever.

He is rated as the #1 Motivational/Inspirational speaker in the world. He’s living the dream I want to live. Hearing his story that morning made me sit back and think ‘If he can come turn his life around the way he did and still come out successful at the end, I can do the same thing.’

The saying that we all have the same 24 hours is all I could think because we all have a choice on how we use them.

make excuses

Whatever you want to do in your life, just believe it can be done and go after it. The proof for you should be the people you admire doing what you wish you could be doing. I believe God puts His blessings in everyone so we all should believe in the talents we possess.

As I approach 27 in a few weeks I understand more now how important it is to stay locked in on my dreams. Learning to continue to say no to the time wasters in my life and yes to what’s going to get my closer to accomplishments.

Revisit that idea you can’t ever seem to get out your head and start working on it again with a positive attitude. There are plenty of possibilities for you if you just give it a try.

On a side note shout to all my Scorpios all around the world; I just had to say that.


When it’s all said and done we have the power as individuals to do exactly what we speak into existence. Live your dreams and change the world.
