Together, win or lose, we succeed.


Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.

-Henry Ford

Tacking onto last week’s post about self-awareness and success, this week I wanted to raise awareness to the second part I believe contributes to success…COMMUNITY. One of my favorite quotes that I try to remind myself of is “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” –African Proverb. For me this hits home. I find myself stuck at times because I am addicted to being 10 places at once and “going fast,” but also trying to include others in as many things as I can. I feel I am not the only one who has this issue.

The ultimate goal for me is to have a journey of growth, far and wide, physically, mentally, and spiritually, and this year specifically I have made it a point to find the right pace for myself. Gosh has it paid off. I have doubled down on doing the things I love, with the people I love even more. And I finally feel that I have hit the right groove on the track. So thank you for all those who have helped me thus far, it does not go unnoticed!

Without a doubt the community and people here in Austin Texas are some of the best that walk on this planet. From an east coast guy that never felt like he had a home…well ATX, you have won me over in a very short time frame, you are HOME. For all that the people and this city has given me, I hope to give back two-fold during the months and years to come. And right now I have my biggest opportunity so far to achieve that. But I need your help!


I am fortunate enough to be participating in the Golds Gym march music madness competition. All of the awesome participants in this chose their favorite song to listen to during a workout. And now the public is voting on them!!! What do the winners get specifically? 5K towards a charity of choice!

It will not be easy to win this, but TOGETHER we can SUCCEED! So if you could, please go VOTE for my song and improve our chances to bring a 5K donation to “I live here, I give here” located here in Austin!


Charity and Volunteering hits home with me. For the world to THRIVE we must lift others up around us. Whether that is with time/energy, money, food… every little bit counts. And no matter if I win or lose, I hope to continue inspiring others to pay it forward. Have a great week THRIVE fam!
