Army of one

Army of one

Reflecting back on 2001 in the Bessie Benson dormitory of Alabama State University, in the lobby stood an army table and momentarily I entertained the thought of joining. Who wouldn't appreciate full tuition assistance, job security, the prestigious honor of protecting and serving along with other perks? Then I envisioned being in active duty, scrubbing floors with toothbrushes and the level of anxiety my parents would experience on the regular. Needless to say, it became a fleeting thought. Although I have high respect for women and men in the service, today I would like to salute me, myself and you too. If I may.

life challenges LEFT me with More Than a few battle scars, but I refuse to give up on my dreams. I encourage you to do the same. If you work a 9 to 5 or a 10 to 6, make some time between 5 to 9 or 6 to 10 to work on your personal, professional and business goals. If something you're doing looks like its Destined for failure, do something else. Nurture your talent, feed your goals and starve your distractions. Motivate yourself daily JUST As you are an army of one.
