I am writing to you, listen. How do I know that I am writing to you? My answer is simple. I already know this story. I don’t write about the news or the facts that are happening today. I write about what I know, which is my life. What has happened in it, and things that happened to it. These are the stories I choose to share so that someone out there, anyone, can maybe read them and know they aren’t alone.

Today and every day after, we struggle with the same insecurities — the same doubts and fears. We only have a few; they tend to be similar because we are all human. It doesn’t matter where you are from, the color of your skin, gender, nothing. It has to do with you being a human and being accepted.

So write to you I do. Whether you relate or not, I can not necessarily predict. What I do know is that someone can. Someone out there has been:

  • fat
  • unemployed
  • divorced
  • weekend father
  • buried in debt
  • career problems
  • woman problems
  • lack of friends
  • addicted
  • depressed
  • anxious

Any other numerous issues that hold us back from reaching our full potential.

Let us explore the full potential for a minute. So that you know, your full potential is different from mine. That is ok; what you can do is take bits and pieces from others and apply them to your life until you find the ones that work for you.

I am militant in my head. I am very negative with myself and put myself through rigorous mental tests daily, and I still don’t think I am hard enough on myself. I know that there is someone out there doing even more than me. I have come to accept that I am not them. I would love to be like them, so I employ some of their techniques, but I am still my own man. Therefore I cannot get the same effectiveness from the same mindset. I get my own.

You will as well.
