I live vicariously through @lil@lilmigsbigworld. He lives everyday as if it’s his last. He’s done more in 21 years than most do in a lifetime. Hopefully he inspires you like he does me. Follow his journey through his blog located in the header of @lilmigsbigworld
Feliz cumpleaños a mi hijo, te quiero mijo. At 15 years old Miguelito @lilmigsbigworld left home to pursue a career as a professional equestrian. He traveled the country coast to coast , riding horses for top trainers and competing at big horse shows. He took himself on a college tour across the country and chose #americanuniversity where he studies international business. Since starting school, he’s traveled abroad (Alone, by himself) to England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Greece, Canada, Mexico, Dominican Republic, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and India. Last year He was a victim of police brutality in MADRID SPAIN (still dealing with this), and it was the biggest nightmare of my life. Many people look at me crazy for allowing my son to leave home so early and to allow him to travel the world ALONE. However, they never met my son. He’s incredible, he’s amazing, he’s fearless, he’s one of the most loving souls on earth and TODAY HE IS 21 years old! He can finally have a drink, legally (drinking age is probably 14 where he is now lol). To the best to ever do it, Happy Birthday Miguelito. Daddy misses and loves you. Travel safely and party responsibly! Until I see you again, I’ll be praying for your safety and happiness, Love Daddy!
I was recently asked by a friend “ Where was my bottom?” My lowest point in life. It wasn’t the days I was without money. It was the day my good name was destroyed. A friend called me to say he heard some bad things about how I was doing business with a large group of guys. They were very influential, and this was an opportunity to help me recover from my failed business. He asked me “What did I do to piss them off?” Fact was, I didn’t do anything. My point person in the organization had made some mistakes, and he knew they wouldn’t give him the money to fix it, so he lied on me and blamed me for the issues to get them to put the money up to fix the problems he created. I was devestated! I couldn’t sleep. Got up at 4 am and went on a run. It was pouring down raining. I cried the entire time I was running. I wanted to kill that guy. I was on the bottom with all these problems, and now they weren’t going to pay me based on the lies of this guy. On that run, I made my mind up to put every issue and every problem behind me. I drew an imaginary line in the sand. I stepped over that line and gave myself a new start. I left every problem on the other side of that line. There are people today that I assume take issue with me based on the lies and miscommunications of others. They won’t do business with me. Maybe even bad mouth me. I’m so thankful that God showed me, He is the decider of your fate, not man. Inspite of their desires to destroy me, God showed me the true extent of his power to raise you up and reward the faithful. No matter who is against you, no matter what mistakes you have made, there’s a better tomorrow in store. You just have to put your past behind you, learn from your mistakes and have faith. He will raise you up for all to see, especially those that would love to see you fail. Eventually you won’t care about what any of them think. Your success will do all the talking that needs to be said!
