As a teenager, Michael was fortunate to receive guidance from positive adult role models who helped him overcome adversities and set high expectations for his future. Grateful for the role these mentors played in his own development, Michael decided to dedicate his professional life to helping people navigate the difficulties of life and launch their future into motion. For more than 25 years, he has been helping teens and adults to use what they have gone through as a catalyst for success rather than an obstacle for failure. Michael received the 2010 USA Network’s Characters Unite Award for exceptional commitment to combating prejudice and discrimination while increasing tolerance and acceptance within the community. He is also the recipient of the 2014 100 Men of Color Award for leadership in education, government, mentorship, entrepreneurial success and community service. In 2008, Michael founded Youth Voices Center, Inc. a non-profit with the mission of helping young people to become active, productive members of society by overcoming their obstacles, their history, stereotypes and even their own self-image and limiting beliefs.

If we only see the world as we are....then the only thing we can change is ourselves.
In today's world it seems to get harder and harder to see the light of the world when all we are in bombarded everyday with fear and darkness. But there is light... a lot of it actually. Maybe that is why the darkness has 'turned up' the volume, as more and more light is finding light!
Happy New everyone. Let's share some thoughts on how this year can look. I also share some of the experience of my Dad passing in November. Here's to a 2021 of learning and growing!
Would you like to pull things into the now and see them without the pain you may have associated with them in the past? It it possible. There are things that simply need to change in your thinking first. Then you can change the emotions that follow the thoughts.
When we swing so far left or right, we ultimately lose sight of our humanity and rational thinking. I experienced this and then had to come to terms with the attack and how I contributed to it.
Sometimes the waiting part of change is necessary. Your desire for change is the beginning of that you are moving forward.
We all have Blind Spots in our life. The trick is to find them so they aren't preventing you from being the best version of you!
Think there's no such thing as a free lunch? Well apparently we never told the pigs.
How we view the world and our own predisposition creates a filter for everything we see and believe. It's important to recognize this and always question....what else could there be?
Contrary to some opinions, Thoughts do not follow emotions. You have an emotional response to a thought you are having. Therefore it makes sense, to change your thoughts if you want a different emotional response. Yes, this is possible.

In the Words of Tony Robbins, The purpose of pain is to move us into ACTION, it is not to make us suffer. This has been a tough reminder this summer....but I'm going to walk you all thru what it was like in the hopes that you too can move yourself into action.
Body image and body love are really missing in today's Society. But this is the body you were given or have chosen if you believe that. It's where your spirit and soul live....shouldn't you be grateful and listen to it?
Such a hard thing to break free of when, since you were born, you've been taught and told what to think. Times are changing and if we want to succeed we need to set aside old ways of thinking.....and simply learn to think.
